Thank you sooooooooooo much! I do love nature! This is beautiful! I came right home after picking it up from the Post Office and hung it in our apricot tree! It even made my tree smile! You are so kind. I hope you took pictures of how you made it. This would make a great instructable! I took a picture to post here so you will never forget my gratitude! Hope your day is splendorous! ((huggs))

right now my biggest problem is motivation........or rather not motivation but motion....or lack there of. :(

I was doing good till I ran out of batteries for the camera...I learned the hard way that regular(non rechargeable)batteries just do not last in a digital I bought rechargable batteries & now that they are all charged & ready to work, I'm finding it hard to get off my lazy butt & finish whst I started.... 8(
Times like this makes me hate my life....
Go easy! Everyone has times like that. Be gentle with yourself and you'll get there. When I'm beating up on myself sometimes, I try to think about whether or not I would say the same things to a small child. Then I change my rhetoric. It's shocking how horrible we can be to ourselves!

you have no idea how badly I want to do this, but for those of us diagnosed with depression, every little task cab be a major undertaking....and not just every now & then but daily...some times hourly....and some times still, moment by moment is like trying to walk in a class 5 hurricane....1 step forward & 20 - 30 steps back...

I really try not to show it, but every day for me is a struggle....that is why I will never be able to live alone...this depression has driven me to several suicide attempts, and I know that it's best for me to never live alone...

I believe that Allah(swt) has plans for me(that can be the ONLY reason why I'm still here), so I must do my best to keep him near & do my best to stay focused on his will not mine(easier said than done).

right now, I am being pushed in a closet (figuratively speaking) & my computer is shoved in there with me...I come from an abusive family(emotionally & psychologically abusive...not physically) so it's hard for me to stand up for myself...especially since from day 1 you have had it pounded in your head that you are nothing but white trash... 8=(

I mean, I know that I'm not white trash because my pharmacist asked me out on a date... and it did not seem to matter that I'm just a lonely old poor boy from the wrong side f the did not seem to matter. 8)

I'm sorry, I'm babbling again,,,,8(

Anyway, TY for asking & TY for the encouragement to get off my butt & get moving on this Ible. I know I'm not the most exciting guy around, but I can only hope I didn't bore you to tears...

Things got rough just as I sent the camera (no $ for postage)......... and they got much worse. I have since moved back with family and all is as well as can be :)
It warms my heart to know you are back in Indiana. I know you where unhappy but you got through it and now you are a better person for it. It seems life tosses problems at us for a reason some times and hey, it builds character!
I too have had several Acer problems and can only agree. They are cheep and personally, I kill all electronic things and now pay for the extended warranty or insurance.
I'm looking forward to posting again myself and plan on it soon. What'cha working on? I'm going for a recipe most likely .......any ideas or suggestions? We could work together on something...... let me know, I'm down for about anything

Whats your favorite food? I need to cook something!
SIRJAMES09 (author)  onrust2 years ago
my favorite food...hmmm, I have to think....
I love tapioca pudding, bread pudding, most anything oriental...

Because of my health being as bad as it is, I have not eaten "normal" food in like 11 years....I have been existing on this liquid nutrition called Nutrin; it's like the "BOOST" or "ENSURE" that you can find at walmart.

I used to eat pasta by the ton...5 & 6 days a week I would be found eating pasta...breakfast, lunch, or dinner, it did not matter. I would eat it smothered in butter with Italian seasoning sprinkled accross the top....

trying to think what else I used to eat....I was a regular health nut...

to me exercise was a 60 mile bicycle ride usually followed by a 5 mile run...

Then I got cancer in 2000 & my life has been going downhill ever since. :(

I'm quite sure that whatever you cook, it's gonna be fantastic! :) I have a lot of faith in you Sir. You're a great man with a great heart. :)
Well, it was over 115 here today and I wanted something lite. So, sunshiine's Lebanese Salad was my pick. It was awesome and thanks for your confidence.... I'm working on the "great man" part...... no worries :)
