Got a good response about the eliminations of those unpleasant posts that appeared to come from me. Maybe all is well now.

I'm not a webmaster, just someone who opened a blog using blogspot.com.  I don't understand how to do the things you suggest. I don't even manage to navigate my way around as I used to when first setting up the blog. Things have change in the interim. Some European (Spanish, Portuguese, Brazilian?) entity uses my email address so it looks as though I've posted stuff about soccer sports. Now I'm getting spam, too. I don't want to lose my original posts, but they're hidden back and among stuff now. What a job to recover it! Help!

I'm only into the second chapter. However, I expected something more from a book so highly touted. I won't give up yet, but Fitzgerald needed to come up with something better. If he was trying to reveal the insipid lives of the 1920s people with delusions about their own worth, he succeeded. Too bad his own writing, especially the dialogue, was so lackluster, as well.

And why is it ALWAYS a woman who screams?

Too bad the Part 1 is screwed up. It seems to be a later part. And when I tried to comment, it sent me to another place instead of allowing me to write. Or maybe the later version of the movie simply begins with a prequel missing from this one. I watched this years ago, though, and remember the bus trip but not much before it.

There's so much that has happened since I last checked in here that I hardly know where to begin. So, I'll start with my profile picture. The little oak baby T-Rex is no longer standing, having given up to the dryness or may to a storm from the last El Nino. I just know that it was there when I photographed it our there on Highway 1666, but it was lying on the ground when I arrived back here in California in August. I love to rescue it and make it a permanent decoration in my apartment.

Her confusion over Tolstoy/Trotsky remained, even after the correction of the name. She still maintained that Trotsky became a Christian at the end of his life. However, here is a quote taken from his own words:  "I shall die a proletarian revolutionist, a Marxist, a dialectical materialist, and, consequently, an irreconcilable atheist."

Ingenius. Thank you for the ideas. I must make a cage to fit in the cab of my pickup truck. While I travel, I don't want to leave my five cockatiels in the travel trailer--they should be with me to enjoy with me all the sights along the way. You  have given me many good ideas.

Been a long time when my sweet husband died with the sound of this lady singing "Slumber My Darling" soothing his going. Now every soft melody she sings brings tears to my eyes. Don't know when someone new will come my way--but she makes me long to feel it all again. Thank you, Alison Krauss.

Just wish I could understand that squeakie little singing--and talking. Why does it have to be sped up so much?

Overdone 5-word phrases in sci-fi, thriller, horror films:  "What the hell was that?"

Story
Tagline
Not long ago it occurred to me that I have led an interesting life. That's a great feeling. Maybe muddling about with decision-making, then jumping to a conclusion that makes the family gasp, and then setting off in an entirely different direction--maybe it's not such a bad way to conduct a life. Trying to pin down why my approach seems to work the way it does, I think it's because I am interested in so many things, curious about most everything. There's so much to know and understand.
Introduction
I've had a long, full, interesting, happy life -- so far, it's not over yet.  My creative talents and desires are pretty much in a muddle tangle inside me, with books and music and art like the Stooges all trying to get through a door at the same time.  I plan to live to at least 90, so I still have a few years to realize some of my dreams.  I think I've been too busy enjoying my life and loves.  Oh, and I love learning.  My sister says, "Beverly has to know everything!"  As I said, busy. 
Bragging rights
Hmmm, I should have saved my Introduction for this box. So, I'll just say here that I went back to college in 1974, graduated 1978 with a BA in psychology; went on first-ever backpacking trek in Sierras 1980; came back and entered university at SB CA in master's program in religious studies in 1980; met husband-to-be Tony on Feb 12, 1982 and married him Dec 22, 1982. We traveled across and around U.S. in 40-foot trailer, consulting here and there. Well, I can't pack a whole, long life into this little box. Maybe there's enough for a short, human interest book one day.

This is my home town, and I am almost 80 years old now. My experiences at Marian stretch back to childhood tonsillectomy and other ills of youth through a hysterectomy/appendectomy, and a triple coronary bypass. My mother in her last years was hospitalized for blood clots in her lungs twice. In all cases we were cared for perfectly and with concern for our general well-being. I can't, in all good conscience. give Marian Hospital, in all its incarnations, less than five stars.

One quick night on my way through Arkansas. It was several months ago, but I remember it as a pleasant stay, easy to get to, lake view, clean facilities.

Chuck and Rhonda Pickle have taken care of all my vehicles during my sojourns here in Santa Maria--and now I'm here to stay. Their honesty and the high quality of work and service is second to none. They are still in the location where Chuck's father John preceded them. Check them out--and say hi to Loren while you're there.

I knew when Chuck Pickle recommended Jay's for smogging my pickup it would be a good experience. It was. The work was done quickly, the price was what I was quoted when I made the appointment, and the folks were all pleasant. I'll go back.

Doctors have become a regular part of my life. My first meeting with Dr. Ogrodowski was, without exception, the best introduction to a new doctor. I wish all doctors could see how easily he gathered from me the information he needed. Usually I'm fishing to remember the information and its chronology, but his manner and the way he asked the questions somehow made the answers almost magically appear. He managed all of it while making an occasional joke, seeming to appreciate my little quips, really listening when I spoke and, when I didn't understand something, he explained without making a big deal out of it. When he left the room for a moment, my sister and I both reacted with amazement, so I knew it wasn't just my reaction. I know this review doesn't adequately explain why we found this doctor so extraordinary, but I went away thinking everyone should have a doctor like Dr. Ogrodowski.
