.”is that, that painting called “the potato eaters”?” Asked Carolyn, as she looked at my latest blog entry. “No,” I answered her, taking a lot of pain killer for my joints, “it’s called “very crazily colored painting by very crazily – colored artist”, why do you ask?” “Nothing,” she finally replied, giving it up.Smoking

I had just been trying to call the long-distance number for the post office, trying to get my package rerouted so it would be picked up at my local post office, instead of being delivered to me on a day when I couldn’t stay home to get it. It actually took me two hours, calling and calling, and calling and waiting on their wait line,before the long-distance post office said, “no, you have to call up your local post office to arrange for them to keep your package there so you can pick it up.”

Thanks so much, federal post office department!the next time any of the states decide to secede from the union, and become independents, countries, themselves, I’ll remember this, and support them.they couldn’t be any worse getting a hold of individual post offices, at individual tiny countries post offices, any worse than our own big federal post office. So what the hell?

Back to the pony express, YAHOO!llamaglomp

besides the fact that Trump was running for president on the Republican ticket of, “I am just so much better than Obama could possibly be, and I’ll probably get rid of Obama care –” there wasn’t much chance that Obama could one up him. Not that I like Republicans or believe them, it was just that, all my experience with Obama and Obama care, was pretty much similar to dealing with a autistic three-year-old boy, who didn’t realize the world was round, and usually spent most of his days holed up in a ball in a drain pipe.

there was no doubt at this point that ANYONE could do the presidency better than Obama, and maybe not lie so much as well. – – Plus, “INACTION” was Obama’s middle name. Who could do worse than that?Post_Nuclear_Project_Entry__D_by_Gnog


Caroline was saying, over a cold drink,while all this manure was being discussed, “I can’t find any REGULAR WATERMELON!” With a sob. “That’s because,” I replied, swigging down awhiskey and pineapple juice, “there IS NO REGULAR WATERMELON anymore! I found that out myself, I can’t find them either. There is nothing except seedless genetically manipulated watermelon!”

“AND,all the seedless watermelon taste like crap, like cardboard, no sweetness, no flavor, nothing that leads me to think it’s a piece of fruit. And NOBODY has any regular old-fashioned watermelon now! I never thought I would get so old, I would see the death of watermelon. But that’s what happened. “

“These things we are supposed to call watermelon, taste like flavorless turnips.”singinwatermelongraphics-fruit-249004

“I have lived too long,” I replied, sitting down very hard. “When a woman can run for president, and I refuse to vote for her; watermelon all tastes like-year-old turnips; the Republican might get into the White House, just because the present Commander-in-Chief was ALSO ACTING like a year-old turnip rotting away in a deathly bad old garden.

“–Any of our diplomats or officials overseas are no longer physically safe because our federal government refuses to send troops to rescue them, and China can just zonk right into all the federal employees’ records and all information, just by using a couple of XBOXES.– – because the federal government’s computers are no longer able to stop them or to encrypt all the information.”

“are you trying to call us a Third World, or fourth world, or even a fifth world country,now?” Asked Carolyn, slurping some more pineapple juice/Whiskey. “yes, I guess I am,” I said, yawning in the heat of the day. “Then,” replied Carolyn drowsily, “you’re absolutely correct. We’re more like some desert in Africa, then any United States I ever heard of. – – And I bet they’ve got better watermelon then we do now,also! “cupcake_yummy_by_apparate-d3ca410

talk about having the worst of both worlds, instead of the best. High tech watermelon, low-tech, Washington DC.nobody had their priorities straight.

not that Eugene, or Lane County had its priorities straight, either. The Oregon Legislature decided to ignore the Oregon drought, in favor of making all the guns in Oregon completely ill legal, or registered, or, if they passed another cute little anti-firearm bill, requiring you to take out federal insurance on your firearm, or face a $10,000 fine if you didn’t.

okay, that was another Obama – Bill against firearms. How was it supposed to help us keep from getting invaded eventually by ISIS,which was rushing its way through every country it encountered, heading eventually for our shores?so that any ISIS , secret agents hidden in America, would have a very tough time paying the insurance on their firearms, thus rendering them disabled?

Caroline looked out at my backyard, and all the huge amounts of overgrown blackberry bushes, high weeds, and high grass, and asked me “aren’t you ever going to get your junky yard cut, ever, this summer?” “Are you volunteering?” I replied, looking for the whiskey bottle, and the lemons, and a CD of “baby doll”. “NO,” replied Carolyn hissing at me, “I just want to know if you’re going to finally get declared totally ill legal by the County, and get your whole place condemned?! It would definitely happen!”

“yes,” I sighed, “I know it’s going to happen, I just don’t have the money to do it, and all my joints are in so much pain, I can’t make up a huge amount of oxbow, and go out and spray them all myself right now. And don’t tell me to hire high school kids, they refuse to do that work anymore! They all want white-collar jobs in offices tapping on keyboards, even for the summer!”and I turned and looked at her – – “and don’t say I should hire a bunch of Mexican or Latin American wet backs, ill –legally, because all I have to do, is hire some poor, unemployed schnook -adult who can’t get a job here to save his life!”

“so, continued Caroline, looking up at the sun with one hand over her eyes, tentatively, “I think you’re probably going to let all the bushes, weeds, grass, and even the blackberry bushes DIE in the heat of the sun, in July instead, are you? So you don’t have to kill them yourself? Like some third world or fourth world peasant who has no money, has gotten old, and still is required to kill the weeds on his place by his dictatorship?”

“YOU GOT IT!” I said happily, finding the whiskey bottle, and making myself a lemonade and whiskey sour. “Welcome to the new third and fourth and fifth world country!hi Tec watermelons, and low-tech people! Low money, low politics, low action, and most of all low ethics and morals!Brazil is sending all of its unwanted criminal-peones to Oregon, I hear, because that countries getting too high tech filled with middle-class jobs, and hard up Europeans! Oh, and also lots of Chinese.”

“EVERY COUNTRY has lots of Chinese now,” replied Caroline, finally remembering to put on her sun–hat, although her nose had already burnt to a crisp. “They’re everywhere except in China. The only Chinese in China, are the ones who can’t afford to get out, and the ones who were running the factories.” She looked at me quizzically. “Is it true you’re trying to make some business deal with Ali Baba, the Chinese business website? What the hell are you up to? You’re not going to get some little tiny factory to manufacture quilted checkbook covers for you, are you? And sell them on eBay? Are you that much of a copycat?”

“NO! NO!”I replied vehemently, throwing the whiskey bottle into large blackberry bush, now that it was empty. “I’m not doing that at all! It’s a completely new invention, it’ll make us wealthy!” And Carolyn looked at me with the sick look in her eye, as this, “he finally gone off her rocker for good!”

“it’s just this,” I said, picking up a knife and slicing off a long length of blackberries vine, and shredding off all the leaves and thorns, and showing it happily to Carolyn. “I’ve invented a way to make shepherds hooks, ear rings, out of the matter of Oregon blackberry vines, the don’t have any metal in them, and are completely allergenic! They’ll revolutionize the ear wire industry! I just have to get some factory in China, to take all the vines, and manufacture the ear rings out of them! You could hang anything you want from ORGANIC – BLACKBERRY – VINE – EAR – WIRES!” I can hear Caroline gasped behind me.

“Sandramina,”she said my name slowly, as if trying not to scare me or upset me. “Maybe we should take you on some kind of vacation, like an ocean cruise to Alaska? Maybe you’ve been thinking too hard lately?and all that cold would take down the inflammation of your brain? What do you think?” I didn’t pay any attention to her, I kept talking about my new invention, ORGANIC – EAR––WIRES!

For women who could not wear any kind of metal in their ears! And MEN!ANYBODY could wear organic ear wires, even little babies, because they were made out of any kind of metal anymore! Not even titanium! And whoever heard of an Oregon blackberry vine hurting somebody’s ears? No way!

“you can’t take me, Hillary will hear about this! HILLARY will save me! I’m a feminist, Hillary loves feminists!Hillary loves all working people, middle-class, and all the good people of America! She’s going to get into office and reward us all! She’s going to get rid of BenGhazi, she’s going to get rid of Isis, she’s the GOOD FAIRY! she should’ve gotten into office, instead of Obama, she would’ve fixed all the whole country by now!”

– – I yelled, as the guys in white jackets from the mental health department, dragged me away, while I was wearing a very nice, totally locked up white jacket myself. Carolyn got in the back of the ambulance, and held my hand. “Don’t worry, it’s going to be okay,” she said soothingly,”it’s just the heat of the summer in this drought,the strain of not having any good watermelon anymore,not being able to vote feminist, and having your country designated fifth -rate-below Africa and Canada and the Sahara Desert, and smelling all the high=potency pot blowing off your new neighbors’ porch next door”, finished Carolyn.

“OH,” added my friend, “also having your latest chiropractor leave the United States, for Australia, and not being able to find another one in the United States on Medicare. That could be a lot for ANY SENIOR with back problems, having to put up with, and wigging out on narcotic painkillers, and newly bought marijuana – derivative – pain products.” Carolyn nodded sadly, as they took me away. “Was she ever be okay again?” She asked, but they looked at her and replied, “WAS SHE EVER ALL right?”

that’s a hard question to answer, if you live in Oregon, home of the fifth rate, fifth world – country and state, and even the Sahara desert is starting to look a lot better for watermelon than here.

NO MORE BLOG–SOFTWARE TOO SCREWED UP”– (but everything is screwed up anyway, in Eugene Oregon)



(representational piece of modern art, trying to represent GO DUCKS – – bought from Oregon artists)

The reason I am bitching and moaning and saying that I’m dumping my word press blog , are the following raisins: (snicker snicker).confidentwalk (1)

In the first place,I can’t find any way to fix this stupid word press frame on my blog, which is way too wide now, and I can’t fix it so that I can type on it properly.

Plus, when you try to leave the page,the sticker comes on:”You don’t want to leave the page do you?DON’T GO!! You will erase any changes!(which is what I was trying to do.) NO!! do not leave the page!:” and when i hit the button”leave the page,”it REFUSES TO LEAVE THE PAGE!!act13.gifbumpcrazy

YEAH. it freezes my whole screen, so I cannot leave the page! I cannot turn off the computer,or close it!!HA HA. WORDPRESS, you really fixed it, so no one can leave the page–you’re so scared they will erase their changes—which is what we’re trying to do! If we leave the page,we can erase the wrong changes we made, you dumpkoffs!! But you think we’re the ones screwing up!! So you fixed the “do not leave the page or you’ll erase your changes” so we cannot LEAVE the page at all!! We cannot turn off the computer screen!! Wow, what power and knowledge you guys have!! You made up our minds for us.  You wankers. (more raisins for you, snicker.)  I finally had to force the computer to close. ha ha. No, I’m not mad–yet. But I’m going in that direction.  :)

That is a big bad Wolf of my WordPress,.org, totally un- read by anybody on the web blog. Which they did not warn me about, when they gave me a WordPress.org blog. They never told me, nobody would ever read it because it was.org._ohdeargodno__by_Sinister_Starfeesh

So now I have the whole job literally of transferring the whole thing over to WordPress.com. Which is still free supposedly. But, if you look up all your instructions for doing this, you may as well go out and get a degree in computer software. Which I don’t want to do right now I am too old and I would die before it was done. Plus, the arthritis in my hands would not hold up for that._boxer__by_jSepia

So let’s start complaining about WordPress right now.I think that would be a very good idea. In the first place, okay word press, why didn’t you tell me that if I use.org, for WordPress nobody the hell would ever read it? And it’s definitely not getting read. It’s probably because it’s not a very good blog, but it’s also not in the mainstream of WordPress.com anyway that’s what somebody recently told me and gave me a message on the blog. Supposedly write from WordPress. “Dear lady, please transfer all of your blog over to WordPress.com. Nobody is reading your blog at all because you’re stuck on WordPress.org! – You idiot.”

so if I’m that much of an idiot, why am I supposed to be able to transfer all of my blog through your witty and simple instructions, over to WordPress.com? Of course that’s going to be very easy to do. Especially since I can’t even figure out how to fix my margins, so that I can see the updates sign anymore. Angry_Mob_by_Sinister_Starfeesh

HOW THE HELL DO I TRANSFER MY BLOG OVER TO WORDPRESS. COM? The good fairies are just going to come over and fly it over?…Fairy_Transformation_by_Zikes

And also that’s another thing; what happened to update? The little sign on your page that lets you update when you type? I mean, that’s supposed to be there, right? Or wrong? So how I update this stupid thing? When there’s no update? So you went and changed something else on this dumb thing and didn’t tell me, as usual.

That’s what I get for having a free blog on WordPress. It’s kind of like having only extended basic service on cable TV; you can watch all those channels, but believe me if you’ve watched TV lately, you know that there’s absolutely nothing on. NOTHING.you’re not going to be able to get anything watchable, until you upgrade to a couple of movie channels. – And pay extra.

The last time they actually wrote any good TV shows, was when they had that huge flood of science fiction shows on all the channels. That was it. And I’m not going to count all the stupid “lost” episodes. Do you remember the way they ended that show? COP OUT!  That was an absolute copout. That’s the way you get out of not knowing what the fuck to do with your ending; kill everybody off. No, Shakespeare did not do that because he was a good writer, he did that because it was the fashion. You’re not getting away with that excuse.TV writers have no relationship whatsoever to Shakespeare.

and let’s not forget the latest fiasco of that wonderful series called “MAD MEN”. Did that sucker end or not? I can’t tell. They’re not making any more. But they did not say that! Or at least not when I was watching. So I don’t know whether it’s off or not. But it is off. Ended.and there wasn’t even any ENDING. Unless the ending was supposed to be, that the main madman went off into the sunset, drinking his little alcoholic butt to oblivion. That’s not much of an ending. And  that show was definitely not “days of Wine and roses”. It was all about very risqué old-fashioned underwear and women’s girdles, and nylons, and how women were supposed to be just sex objects in the office. and men really really liked it.

Aww, the good old days!! when men were men, and they drank lots of liquor and didn’t worry about their livers.

that’s been happening a lot on TV; TV series that end without a boom, or a notice that they’re ending. So you’re up in the air, and asking your neighbors, or your friends, “say, is that show over? Or are they just haggling about wages again? And they’re always late getting the episodes out say, about a whole year?  and is Dr. who over?cause I don’t see any new episodes of that either?

“Boy do I miss the TARDIS. It Looks just like that out- house we used to have in the back.”

now let’s keep complaining and not slack off. All right, I’m going to complain about something political;HEY THERE!MR..PRESIDENT!. PRESIDENT OBAMA! Do you have any excuse for THROWING ALL  THOSE PEOPLE  OFF  OF MEDICARE  PART D WHO TAKE PSYCHIATRIC MEDICATION?    (DARLING? Sweetie?)

You think we’re all going to be very well supplied by our LOCAL mental health Department and state government?and that all those schizophrenic and psychotic people, including the ones who are dangerously criminal, criminals, on psychiatric medicine are just going to be taken care of by the local mental health department because they have plenty of funds ? And the state governments are going to be able to medicate all those dangerously psychotic, and often homeless, schizophrenics, because all the state governments have so much money?


you know that  one of them already got that Sen. in the head with a bullet. So does Pres. Obama think that he is completely protected and immune from getting one also from a very very crazy psychotic person off their medication? The medication that president Obama himself decided to stop? Because it cost too much money? And he wants to put all that money into Obama care, so you have to pay thousands and thousands of dollars for your deductible or else you can’t use it? Isn’t that intelligent?

so let’s go on with our not slacking off complaint; if president Obama should get hit in the head by a bullet from a very crazy person or a very overly political person (not much difference),WHO IS he going to blame? Is he going to blame our local mental health Department, because they didn’t have to enough money to give the poor person medication? Is he going to complain about our state government because they didn’t have enough money for mental health?

No, president Obama from his sick bed, while his brain is embedded with a couple of bullets, is going to have to complain about his own program, where he decided to cut all of that psychiatric medicine out of Medicare part D. And that’s the truth.

WHY? There’s no reason a lot of our senior citizens are not particularly un – crazy themselves.after all, president Obama has really inflamed seniors in every corner of our country, by cutting $700 billion out of their Medicare. If that’s not enough to make somebody crazy, I don’t know what is.after all, my age is about 67, and I am actually riddled with neurological antidepressant medication, or else I go crazy, go down to the local gun store, buy a whole bunch of handguns and rifles, and ammunition, get a little training from the National Rifle Association, and jump on a bus to Washington DC.

who says the elderly are jovial and mature? I say they are not jovial and mature. You should see some of the people in Eugene Oregon – a lot less mature than perhaps Hades. I have known and talk to or tried to talk to, so the extremely monstrously extreme left-wing liberals, in Eugene, who have ranted and raved horrendously, so badly, that I think president Obama should start worrying now. And those were middle-aged or elderly people.

They still had a lot of steam left in them. I know that those people happen to be very angry about the extreme non-left-wing stances that president Obama has been taking, (according to them anyhow) and if you cut off their medication, they’re probably going to take the next flying saucer, gray rabbit bus, or volkswagen bus to Washington DC, and probably shoot your head off. – If you can manage to get away from one of your Hawaiian  vacations with your wife and kiddies, or failed foreign visits, and actually BE in Washington DC.minding the business.

(did you know that Hitler actually invented the Volkswagen bus? (The “People’s car”?)and I’m sure that he also approved of the Mercedes-Benz.)”that German engineering.”

I forgot, Obama; you don’t really mind the business, you actually REINVENT all the LAWS of the federal government in the country. That’s what your true job is. And you also REINVENT the Constitution of the United States. I guess that is a pretty big job. That’s why when people look on the map of the world, for the United States of America, they can’t find it anymore. It’s listed as OBAMAVILLE.

the funny thing is, I just looked up some history, of 1776. The basic reasons that the colonists revolted against Britain and went to war, were the following: Taxation without representation, by Britain.the British were taxing the colonists to death. Also, if you were a colonist, you had no rights, you could be hauled away, to prison or what ever, without any trial or jury. No phone call. It was legal.thank God that could never happen now.

(Raisins, snicker snicker.) Plenty of raisins.

it is true,that suddenly I feel lighthearted and light shouldered, because there are no burdens and worries and stress on my shoulders now that I have written this great and wonderful blog episode. It really does make you feel free and better, to get all those worries off your mind, and transfer them onto everybody else on the web.

that is, until I get plenty of visits from the FBI and CIA, if I can manage to get them to read this blog, because they now think that, as a senior citizen I am extremely dangerous. DARN. and the last time the FBI visited me, they sent really big, tall, heavy duty young guys, with scowls on their faces. all over some ranting and raving on the web, where people usually rant and rave and nobody takes it seriously.but somehow, these great agents missed out completely on all signs of the forthcoming Boston bombing. Tsk tsk. What a bad day to miss.

After all, nobody’s reading my blog!that’s what I get for being.org. Instead of.com.I can never get any real terrorists on here, reading it, to make any comments.

but who cares, all that matters is, now I feel good. And relaxed. That must be the real secret of writing a blog it makes YOU feel better, never mind the people who read or don’t read it. They’re not the main purpose of it after all. :)    

(   :)   Signing off, Sandramina, in Whoville homeless village, Eugene, OR,  kicking homeless people in the shins, stepping on their dogs’ paws, and raiding their bottles of “Boone’s Farm Apple-Cherry Wine”. I am such a MEAN old lady, I still want my Medicare part D!!  Why should I let Obamacare have it?? He’s still getting bribes from insurance-companies to screw the public. And THAT is a lotta dough.  $$$$$$$$) …





I was on the telephone, with my friend Ronni, who lives in Portland, when I was reading a copy of “Northwest Boomer and senior newsletter”. My eyes lit on the meeting at the Eugene city library, February 23rd, 2 PM, that said “why are there few black people in Oregon? A secret history.” And that was what their meeting was about. “It looks like you’re not supposed to be here, and you don’t exist,” I said to my friend who  is black. “According to this, there aren’t any of you in Oregon. Only white people.”_ohdeargodno__by_Sinister_Starfeesh

“who the hell said that?” Replied my friend, very irritated;” so I don’t exist? And the rest of my friends don’t either? Who the hell do these people think they are? A secret history? What are they blabbing about?” “I know what they’re going to talk about,” I replied. “They’re going to tell about how the University of Oregon was founded by members of the Klu Klux Klan; and that Oregon was terribly racist and had lots of Klu Klux Klan members here, OH! – – And the reason why there are not huge numbers of black people here (the way they are supposed to be) is because we’re still very racist in Oregon, and the university is still really racist. I also saw these people’s video on YouTube, describing how segregated the very old university was.”creat08.gifdemon makefacesgy

my friends laughing, very loud, resounded in my ear; “oh my, that is absolutely hysterical! Like all those black organizations at the University, don’t exist? And all the black student body especially during the 60s, didn’t exist?  I guess that would leave out affirmative-action also;and all those African American political groups that were so active and involved in the University. And I guess the African-American PROFESSORS in the college don’t exist either?”lightninghitsterb231lightninghitsterb231

“Yes, and I guess the African-American studies programs don’t exist either.  Wow! I guess these people in this group are running on hallucinatory mushrooms or something. Gee,Ronni,I guess you don’t exist after all!how you feel about that? At least you don’t have to pay taxes I guess, ha ha ha ha ha!”we laughed for a couple of more minutes.it was really a gas, what this “very discriminated against group” was agitating about.chasevulturestor17

What were they agitating about? THE PAST.the old and ancient past of Oregon, where there truly were Klu Klux Klan operating, and lots of members that were here. But, Oregon was typical among quite a few states in the United States that had very active Ku Klux Klan and segregation of black people.there was no mention in the propaganda of this meeting, about all the other states at that time in history who had even more active Klu Klux Klan, especially in the deep South.for some reason, this group had decided that little old OREGON, and the University of Oregon, were far worse than any of the other southern states, as far as discrimination of black people, and that’s why there were so few black people in Oregon. We were absolutely still racist to the edge.makefacesgy

I did call up this group, later on, to try and find out just exactly what its motives were, as to digging up the old past and skewering Oregon and the University with it. Just what were it’s motives anyway? I mean,  history is one thing and it’s a good thing to read up on it. But as far as saying that “there are so few black people in Oregon, because it has such a horrible racist past, and it’s still racist and bad bad bad!” – – And deliberately not mentioning how racist the other states were, except for this one.poophorskngt

And that title was really misleading; “why are there so few black people in Oregon?” – Because of the very racist and Ku Klux Klan past in this state? Except that, all of that was completely gone. Vanished into the past. Oregon was one of the most liberal and left-wing and Democrats, and pro-ethnic diversity states and universities in the whole United States. so it was a little odd that they were accusing a very liberal left wing and Democrat state, of being anti-black?buttmad209

I talked to the leader of the group, but I still couldn’t get any real answers. What was the reason for dredging all this up, and smearing Oregon with it? The only thing I could get out of them was, “Oregon is still completely racist, against black people, and all their disgusting past has to be dug up and exhibited to everybody.” I had to admit that it really did exist in history. But why, oh, why, was it to blame for tons of black people not coming here en masse, to enjoy the rain, freezing cold weather, snow, hail, and lots of GLOOM that they would absolutely just love instead of California or Miami?famlap97.gifkaostorm

so according to this group, the only thing that kept so many black people from flocking here, to enjoy all the snow and snow storms, frozen streets, broken pipes, rain, sleet, months of GLOOM without sunshine, was that nasty old Oregon and the also nasty University of Oregon, had such a bad nasty naughty anti-black person past. And that was still going on! Oh my oh my!lumineux.gifhairscared BOOM_chtiiik_booom_CHIIK_by_Pixelisto

I had never thought about that before; was it really obvious that African American people just love all that nasty lovely wet and cold weather,and it seemed they wanted to come here in large groups and settle?among all the hippies? And all the unemployed and homeless? With the very high jobless rate, unemployment, and complete lack of jobs?and all the white trash? And the huge abundant amount of working poor? And they really longed to pay high prices for food, never see the sunshine all winter, watch their gardens get destroyed by super slugs, never be able to raise tomatoes instead of accidentally raising lots of banana slugs instead?l gunsshootinglove ove13

You know Black people just LOVE BANANA SLUGS; better than corn-bread.I  had ignored  all these facts.icon_confused  makefacesgy

It just really never occurred to me before. I guess I had been blocking it out. And the fact that I had African American friends, here Kept me from realizing just how much all the other Black folk in California, and warmer climates were being kept  From moving here, and getting used to all that wonderful freezing weather we had. It just never occurred to me, DARN! I didn’t really want to think that they too, desired to get up in the morning, put on huge fluffy coats, and shovel out 6 feet of snow hindering their cars and blocking their driveways.plus, skidding  all over the icy black freezing highways, ending up in snowbanks, having to be pulled out by American automobile Association tow trucks.fuckyeahseakingplz

To think that we were somehow keeping them from this paradise. Tsk tsk.#2fridaythe13th

I suppose they were tiring of lovely and warm, exotic and special Louisiana and St. Louis by now; and that they wanted so much to dessert all their family, and move here to this strange wonderful and not exotic or lovely, but somewhat green, state.not to mention all the great restaurants and cooking and FOOD. After all, Oregon has such great restaurants, full of vegetarianism, raw food, odd food, fast food. The South just couldn’t hold a candle with its Paul Prudomme, Cajun and Creole cooking, crawfish and seafood. Sigh. Corn bread, fried chicken, and other yummy yummys of the South, well, they were getting so tired of that – – they wanted to rough it in Oregon and go to Carl’s Junior instead.glompunch

I talked to some of my other friends about this, and they thought I was crazy.”why in hell would African-Americans want to move to Oregon in large groups? What the heck for? There wasn’t any employment, the welfare was all gone as or no food stamps here either. The government saw to that.” I guess they were just itching to compete with all that lower white trash here, for welfare and stuff like that? Sure, I’m sure they were. It was just our terrible discriminating segregating anti-black person past that was holding them back.superduper2angry

“I don’t think that a lot of my friends would want to dessert meat,  barbecue, and go all vegan instead,” one of my African-American acquaintances,” sure, I like greens; but nothing but Greens, and no MEAT? In favor of “all organic vegetables”, macrobiotic diets, brown rice and veggie-burgers?? Your town is pretty low-down on food, if you ask me.”Gluten-free diets”?  No bread??” He did some colorful language here, and I had to chuckle.”Damn, your town is taken over by YUPPIES!! “he continued.”Those self-important, “save the world instead of the U.S.”-type, who think it makes them Queen of the May to save all of Africa?!! OH, YEAH, I’d just LOVE to live among those snot-noses!!  Not to mention–“he lowered his voice-“You got the whole population of GAY SAN FRANCISCO THERE!! SHIT, MAN. ”   “Not really your cup of tea,then?” I replied. “No, I’ll pass on that. heh heh.”  I had forgotten that he really liked WOMEN.

It appeared that a few of my African-American friends had no desire to move to Eugene, or Lane County, or even visit here. “You got nothing there, honey. Those organic-range-chicken-eggs aren’t enough reason.”  “Not the small organic boutique farms either?”  “Boutique “organic” small farms, a good reason to not live there or go there. Not in my budget, Sandramina!”secretlaugh

 And I had to agree that the COOKING HERE could not hold up to the Southern parts of the United States. Eugene Oregon thought that CUP-CAKES or TOFU were the be all and end all of cuisine; did I mention they have cake made out of BEETS HERE? _slamhead__revamp_by_Synfull  makefacesgymore2leatherface

No wonder my diet was working so well; hm…”beet-cake” was not so alluring to the palate.dighole

“I am not surprised you’re losing some weight, “said Ronni, from Portland.”Yeah, cake made of beets just somehow misses out compared to black bottom pie. mud pie. or black-bottom cupcakes. Or even Oreos.  Sheet.” She then invited me to come up some time to Portland. cause she still knew old-time good cooking, and was pretty handy with an oven or a skillet. “Want me to bring anything?” I asked. “Just your appetite, sugar, “and she laughed that hearty laugh of hers. What was such a really good cook, doing in PORTLAND? The hipster city was lucky to have her. aanother1love02

What were the few black people doing in Oregon? Just unlucky I guess. They just were not aware of how racist Oregon and the university of Oregon was, nasty, segregationist, and heavily into that vanished KKK that used to be, and no longer was.  UH…that is, “Why Are there so few black people in Oregon?”-group was well into it , being obsessed by it. The rest of us could easily live without it.

OK, here is a straight information. A long time ago, there used to be really, real,  free movie websites on the web._drunkbummy__by_meninasuitcase

– – that means, “there USED TO BE.” There no longer are. They have either all been taken down, or they exist in this kind of situation;checking_the_recipe_by_ravenswd

there are torrents, which are pretty risky at best because you are asked to download them all without knowing what is on and then it gets into your computer. That is why torrents are very, very risky. And if you are lucky enough to find a site of torrents that are really honest, they do not last for very long. And there’s no way you’re going to get any free new movies.also, torrents are very tricky and you have to get the right software to download torrents and then to find the website that actually have real torrents and are not a bunch of jerk mall ware or viruses.otter_bounce_by_jeanawei1234-d53jru2

also, there are websites that Seem to be free; they are fakes. You always have to give them your credit card, before you can watch anything. This is absolutely 100% necessary. And you should not do it. You are going to get conned! So all of those very modern and even the on modern websites that tell you, you can get free movies, are all LIES. Absolutely LIES. Especially the ones you find on Google, they’re all lies. And that even includes YOUTUBE, especially! There used to be free movies on YouTube but, no more. Now all you will get is advertisements.gravity___stamp_by_mdkofdoom

You will also findwebsites that have collections of so-called “best free websites” and then when you go to those websites. They tell you about, they are NOT FREE. Those are sponsors that are telling you, they are free websites and they are, once again, NOT FREE. There are NO FREE MOVIES anywhere, even on project TV. That’s over with. Also.flyinglove

I can also add that there wants WAS, or WERE, quite a few real genuine free movie websites and they are either over with, or they are impossible to find anything on, because there whole database is hidden from all sides, so that the Fed cannot take them off. However, what happens to this is, YOU cannot find any movies on there either! There are no film or movie indexes! Two of these are; stage vu, and Veehd.com. Neither one of these have any index, or anyway of finding movies inside their databases.EmoTeV_by_Sinister_Starfeesh

They are all HIDDEN._secretlaugh_by_sml_e – – IF there actually are any watchable movies on their. That is debatable. So you would have to be an extreme techie, , to invade those sites databases, just to find out what is on their.you would probably need extra special hacker tools. And you would have to be extra special hackerKill_em_all just to get in there and see what movies are in their. I sure cannot do it, and I am very familiar with both of these websites.there is also “project TV”arhh, 1161.gif Ontvwhich no longer has anything on, and is also riddled by block up ad blocking everything. Also, “Alluc.com”llama which also used to be a good movie website.the other old time religion pirate website is, “pirate Bay.com”pirateattack or “pirate Bay.org”panlong-dragonand it also has a nonnegotiable, completely hidden database,free_avi___sleepingmoon_by_seiorai-d2ahcwv and is questionable whether there is actually anything on their anyhow.there is also one that used to be very prolific and obviously it is called “putlocker.,com”shifty however, the only one left, has practically nothing on it, and it also has very aggressive mall where and blocking ads.Cream_and_Racoongirl_emoticon_by_zimpy222.

Google search engine will not tell you of any actually free movie websites anymore. They are blocking all of them, if there are any left. Which I doubt.confuse

The only thing left is, CHINA. rainbowflowerzChina has their own free movie websites most of it is in Chinese. Not all of it;Tudoc or Tudo, or Tudou, (that last one is correct) does have movies but how are you going to find them.omg If they are in Chinese? Yes, the people who have free movie websites left are probably China and India.Fella_Go_Boom_by_de_Mote Good luck. Most of it’s not in English or American made.

so, I am sorry to burst your bubble, but if I cannot go on.shakefist(1) There, on the web and find free movie sites anymore, which actually have support, websites with real movies on them, they don’t have mall where that’s going to kill your computer,_intardnet__by_leoleonardo then there aren’t any. Believe me I am pretty certain, and I have just about ground everything to a fine mush, looking all over the web for hours. There may be a few very tiny_escapingsuperllama__by_meninasuitcase little sites which brag about having movies, but even that is debatable. They are mostly fan sites– – which means they are talking about and celebrating the movies, but they don’t have any real links to them and they don’t have any real copies of them.omfg___emote_by_mdkofdoom

there are also a few free “private movie club websites.”78b5e0709fbf12841b76049293b3a2d6-d6hdnrj Which still claim, to have free movies on them or links to them, but if they don’t have the actual movies on the site, there are not any links left to other sites which really have the movies._filmaddict__by_vanmall

Mostly missing now, are any actual websites that actually CONTAIN the movies THEMSELVES. ahhThey have all been shut down or they have been surrounded with mall ware and viruses and FBI and Corporation roadblocks.however, you can find a few of these; “antique movies websites with a few antique movies on them.” stamp_collection_by_krissi001-d671pp5 There are couple of them, but they are very limited and you are going to have to like black and white very old, rather badly filmed often, old movies. That’s it. There are very, very old movies available, a few, which are out of copyright. There are a few archives, but they are very limited. I could probably count them on one hand, or half of one hand.you would be much better off getting a subscription on cable TV to Turner classic movies.signsorry

these are all the situations of free movies or very2unsure free torrents, that I know about, and they are extremely slim, even those few. Watch out for “solar movie”,Smiley PC you can get your computer and trapped and not be able to do anything about it but close down your computer and hope for non-injury.hyper_glomp_by_soulnova

Most of us have got used to the idea that online and on the web, shithappens   walk_by_sackofsquan-d5w8ix7there are no free lunches anymore. There are also no free movies, aside from something that you would want to watch anyway, or is completely unwatchable noir in form. We suggest that you get familiar with your local movie theaters,hardrockangel and Netflix,Mac_Love_by_Furatix and especially cable TV movie03  happycry or satellite TV.

Let’s face it, you’re going to have to PAY sob TO WATCH MOVIES NOW.this is not the  movie01.gif spaceman sml world 60s and the 70s  suneye.gif beatnik or even the 80sfeelingfreeplz anymore. All of that is over.needpillsplz – – – The managementknittingfda0c8fdffc0b3d280cc94dbb4ebb4cd-d684tte

(abstract view of cat by unknown Oregon artist)

here we are again, and it is the end of August; it is still very hot in Eugene, Oregon, even though no sun is out. And we are going to be very calm and relaxed as we explain our problem of buying a book. online.paranoid (1)

This should be very easy; we have been told that shopping online is easy and fast and not confusing. That is what we have been told. However, at this point I am being driven to brick and mortar bookstores, because I am so frustrated at just trying to buy a book online.netlove

HOW HARD IS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE?.ANSWER: it’s simple! tangodan

I have bought plenty of books and other things online before, and it was not a problem. However, in the last few years it has been a great problem, and very difficult to buy something from Amazon.com. Ditto the fabulous discount website “new egg.com”_happydancer__by_synfull-d2yt8vs

 It is really something, when you can’t buy anything off Amazon.com anymore, without being a computer engineer from Hewlett-Packard!thedon

I am not a dummy on the computer, even though I am a senior. I could not be such a dummy and have this blog, and write on it, handle all the Dragon NaturallySpeaking software, and then get everything to come out right here. So what is up with AMAZON?why can’t they even sell you a book anymore? shakefist


I did everything correctly, but the password software refused to accept my password after it changed it, the way they wanted me to. Take that, Amazon! So I couldn’t even get into the site! What the hell was I supposed to do? Their software didn’t work! cutevampire

so I googled their customer service phone number, long-distance and I called them up. What I got was a little voice from the Philippines, didn’t know what the hell I was talking about. And she said “I am so sorry. There is a problem with your password.” And then I gave her every single bit of personal information, technically, that they want! Guess what: computer_avatar_by_devlant

they still could not identify me. I have had an account with Amazon.com for years, and suddenly, they won’t let me into the website, they can’t identify me and they don’t know where the hell my account is! Isn’t that something for efficiency? And, this little cute voice on the end of the line, has decided that they can’t identify me at all, I should come back some other time. Or something like that.  confuse


PLEASE, MOGULS, START hiring Americans for customer service work, because trying  to talk to untamed employees,is traumatizing;And, they can’t still find your account. Absolutely wonderful!



(AND, If you decide to vote for real estate billionaire celebrity, Donald Trump. may the spell of Goldwater fall upon you!  You will likely have multiple WARS to make Bush look like a peacenick! Not that I like Democrats; I just don’t trust a social-security-and-medicare-killer in the White house AGAIN!   (YES, THAT’S YOU, OBAMA!) ff21.gif drunk 

 REPUBLICAN LEADERS HATE OLD PEOPLEact13.gifwildnutscrazy They want us to dissapear, and not be a burden, after they’ve stripped  us of all the fed. taxes they could get.that goes for the fed. govt. too;flag_usa


SANDRAMINA LOSES THE POINT, KIND OF:   Desintigrate_Ninja_by_de_Mote

( But I am missing my other point; Brazos, I hope that your wife got half of everything you own, it would only be fair considering how your Amazon.com is now screwing all your customers up.) _treehugger___reupload_by_Rebel2206

Oh, so then I went to find a whole list of other bookstores, online, and I gave up on Amazon.com just to buy a book. I did go to a few others, that were very large, and I engaged with Albris bookstore, which is supposed to be pretty good. I found the same book for a little bit more money and also a shipping charge. But I decided if they did it go right, it was worth the money.ff07.gif readbook

at first, checking out, I thought that it was very straightforward and simple. However, it had one problem; it kept repeating itself over, for giving them my financial information, as if I were buying the same thing over and over.   ??? And these people did not have a 800-number for clearing up customer service problems. –fuckyeahplz – Even though they were a lot smaller than Amazon.scared

I have to admit that I have not been very calm and rational lately; I have had very bad recollections of PTSD, lately and bad things have happened. I started remembering a whole lot of junk and also a whole lot of bad feelings. This has upset me very much, to the point of yelling and screaming a lot.hysterical watexcitedplz

You know what I mean, if you are an abuse survivor. (But I don’t want to talk about that now.)chickendanceplz

but I shared a lot of the same problems with my friend in Michigan, and I decided to send her the same book I have, as it didn’t cost very much and it was a wonderful compendium on trauma. All different kinds..it was a very, very good informational book. So I wanted to buy her a copy of it.lovehug8195883cad84e28a1c9e6520bd4a88eb-d5uwbud

imagine my disgrace and shame, finding out that trying to buy a book on trauma, would include GIVING ME ONLINE SHOPPING TRAUMA! it didn’t make sense, except that since I had a very bad past trauma, as an abuse survivor, I was deliberately shopping online for a book, from websites that would take advantage of me, and screw up their software, so I couldn’t buy the book. In other words, I was subconsciously repeating the abuse online.  _starewoo__by_dbestarchitect

How pathetic.horror04.gifmorehorribleharrasshorror

I guess Dr. Herman will have to add a new passage of different kind of trauma, that exists, through trying to shop online, from huge corporations and book companies, etc. – – and how we survivors are driven to hysterically run out to BRICK and mortar stores, to find our books instead! _raincloud__rvmp_by_bad_blood


And to think that  what we are all worriedly wondering now is “have we abuse survivors opened ourselves up deliberately, to being abused by huge booksellers online?” The answer is:HKhellokitty07cringscreaming

NO, it is the dumb fault of the stupid damn huge booksellers online, who don’t take care of their customer service anymore, they are too busy getting rich. Just like any other kind of business; when  it gets too big and rich ,and HUGE, MONSTROUSLY RICH, the customer service goes down  the toilet. ontoilet_coprastasophobia__by_crakaemotes

GURGLE-GLURGLE-FLOOOOSH! _droplet__by_sparklydest

Sigh. I still have not been able to buy my book. I will probably pick up a phone book (how quaint!) and look up bookstores in Eugene and Springfield to see if they have my book.And for how much. Considering that Lane county was voted by investigators to have the most child abuse, and child-sexual abuse in all Oregon, it’s a good bet that book is floating around here, getting picked up every single day, and not  even bought online. _nothappy__by_a_kid_at_heart-d5mavr5

Why put yourself thru more trauma, as a survivor, while trying to buy a book on the subject? That is very unhealthy behavior. I can say that for sure.  :)       arhh

1803.png cat face blackwhite

(picture of a cat)

.here I am in Eugene, Oregon, on the phone to my bank (the names have been changed to protect the innocent bank) and I am trying to get a hold of an agent ,Dodge the telephone robot, but it doesn’t work. She wants to know all this information.eager

“What is your card number?” I tell her. “What is your checking account number?” I tell her again. What is your debit card number again?” I give it to her again.”what is your pin number?”I give that to her. “What is the last four numbers of your Social Security card?” I give that to her. “What is your phone number?” I give that to her and yawn.oofgleeye686

“What is your address?” I give that to her, verbally. “What is your name?” I give her my name and some local swearing..”what is your weight?” I really give her some local  swearing, and fudge the number on my weight. “How tall are you?”Eye_roll_by_Cinyke

At this point I’m getting really exasperated. “What was the last name of your mother’s maiden name, and the last maiden name of your grandmother by your mother?” She is very lucky. I happen to know the whole thing, and yes, there are some Jews in their, and other things I don’t want to talk about. FRENCH. Maybe some African-American; let’s see what else? They were in the Civil War.toexplodewithlaughter

Oh,and the blueblood of the Revolutionary war, and also some Amish and Mennonite, to settle it, on my dad’s side..but I really don’t think that rumor about my dad’s family is true, and that there is Cherokee in it.maybe Little Sioux Indian. Not much.neinmann

“agent– agent –agent– agent – –” I start mollifying this machine, and give her own stuff back. And she picks up on it and says, “please hold while I get an agent for you.” (“And while you’re at it, why don’t you dip yourself in motor oil, and go back to the Middle East, sweetie!”)talkoncellphonesecuredownload

but the most embarrassing thing when I go to the bank, or when I call them up, (I hate doing online banking because I know a bunch of hackers, and really nasty criminals online, that exist, and they can hack into your account in two seconds, and find out every single thing and every number, and every piece of  info. and money you’ve got.if the federal government can’t hold off the hackers, how can I?) – – The most embarrassing thing when I talked to a banker, is saying this:ohmygod

“no, I would not like to talk about you giving me a loan. We don’t do that in my family.”there is a pause from the banker, and she asks,” what do you mean?” I answer, “we don’t do that in my family; we don’t take out LOANS. If we don’t have the money, to pay for it, We don’t buy it.”shakehead

there is an audible gasp from the other end of the line. Once again, I have terrified a bank agent, and surprised the hell out of them, that anything like that exists in America. I am embarrassed to death, and she can’t see me blushing and turning bright purple. This happens all the time. I guess I had better get used to it.xmen05wolverine

“What I mean is, my family was very old-fashioned and frugal, and they worked hard and saved all their money, and invested it, and they only bought things that they could pay for. We don’t believe in getting lots of loans and we don’t go around with lots of credit cards.” There was another audible gasp, and coughing, at the other end, I had gone over the line with this poor banker.it was true that my sister had a mortgage, on her nice little old, overpriced home in California, but that was unusual for my family.prayer

But I did not like to talk to bankers, or any kind of financial people, and admit this horrible truth about my nuclear family. We did not go around getting loans and borrowing money. We did not go around using credit cards unless we absolutely had to (I believe that my sister at one time had to have a credit card, just to buy stuff for identification or something? She was a lot more modern, and she had to put up with all that financial guff.) But the rest of my family, Just did not do that.sherlock

And I had been poor, A lot of my life, and the one time I had a Macy’s card, it took me a whole year to pay off $85 worth of makeup. It just was not worth it. It certainly was not. My sister had said, “go ahead and get a Macy’s card, so you can establish credit.” What credit? Poor people don’t have any credit! They want cash from us! Besides that, if I were middle class and made a lot of money, or just had some money, and they would give me credit cards,it would go against my family tradition.chopwoodsmiley-chores017

Very poor people and very poor families have this tradition; you can’t buy anything unless you have the dough. Nobody let us get away with inflating the economy, that’s for wealthy people to do. But the poor and the poor– working? No way, they don’t let us inflate the economy that’s only for the billionaires and the upper-middle-class, and especially for THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.clap2

So it was very embarressing, when people at parties or any social gatherings, found out that I didn’t use credit cards, I didn’t get loans, that my family actually owned the tiny house I lived in, and stuff like that, and there was never a mortgage on it, I would be embarrassed right into the next celestial world. people looked at me very oddly, when I said that our family built the house themselves.mwahaha

they looked at me, as if I were from another world. And they probably all thought I was a Mennonite.

Not true; also, I do not belong officially to the Lubavitcher Chabad, or the Amish. – – Although I do go on the Lubavitcher Chabad website, and read, and talk to, and discuss things with them, because I think they’re pretty smart, and I respect them.newelectronicdance

I don’t think they would let me in their organization. Too many weird things, too many weird people in my background.but then, who were they to Judge? One of those Chabad organizations, believes that in the future, technology and the metaphysics of the celestial world, and God, will merge together, and somehow work together.magicalkiss

Sounds logical. That’s okay. But to the rest of the world, it’s as weird as not using loans, and not using credit cards, and not using mortgages if we don’t have to..– and building your own house from scratch.teethyspoint09

(Take that, Jimmy Carter. I hope you feel a whole lot better, but you know how the big C is.)sadfrownlittlec.

I continued to the agent, “are you okay?” She stopped, coughing and gasping, and I could hear her drinking some water. “It’s all right, we bankers have to – – put up with a lot – –” and we ended our little financial session, and I apologized for shocking her so badly.”I really am sorry,” I continued, that happens to a lot of people, when I tell them.” She was a little standoffish, and very stolidly said, thank you very much, have a nice day.” – Like she couldn’t stand, to get off the phone, and I would infect her over the telephone wires.Practice_by_world_in_flames

oh well.flyingspaghettimonster

I’ll have to stop just telling people, cold like that, without giving them some kind of warning, and telling them that my family actually does that; avoids getting mortgages, mostly, doesn’t use credit cards, and doesn’t use loans. Not that we wouldn’t like to, but we’d rather not get into debt, along with the rest of the country and the government,it’s just very old-fashioned of us. And I like being that way. But it’s horrendously embarrassing, it shocks the hell out of everybody.shake_head_by_fire_kitty_666-d4id8eg

it’s the way that people used to be, if they found out you were gay; but now it’s wonderful to be gay, and it is NOT WONDERFUL, to be frugal, save your money, invest it, and not live beyond your income.newrighthandzombiechase

if I said out loud that I was a lesbian, that would be great. But the way I am, in reality? I dare not speak the name of shame. FRUGAL. TIGHT. CHEAP. SAVING. That last one is really horrible.I’ve actually seen people faint in front of me._crying__rvmp_by_bad_blood

too bad there isn’t another country with people just like me that I could move to, and get out of this stupid fucking, financial ,CRAP, that I live in, called the United States of America; whose first religious indoctrination is in using credit, using loans, using mortgages, and not worrying about getting into debt.– – which of course is why we are now owned by China, and probably the World  Bank, if I remember rightly.bek047.gif chinese emoticon

and if the Chabad in any branch of it, are anything like me, I would probably join them right now, (except that I just can’t stand wearing that much black! It reminds me of New York City ) but I think even they are too modern to accept me, the way I am.ghostgomote

and forget the Amish, I really am too old and broken down physically, to start learning how to do everything by hand, again. As much as I like their quilting designs, they remind me of the ones from the Pennsylvania Dutch, back east where my dad’s family came from. knittingfda0c8fdffc0b3d280cc94dbb4ebb4cd-d684tte

I’ll just have to remain the anachronism that I am, but try not to blurt it out, too much, in public without warning, so I don’t give the next person a heart attack. Nobody probably suspects that there are any of us left, we Puritans of finances, creaky, cheap, frugal, and definitely watching our bottom line. jacktheripper

the worst thing of all is, I am definitely not supporting the federal government standards, and belief systems, and I am probably what’s known as a “radical terrorist” in that respect. It makes me sick when I watch old movies, and they talk about all the gold in Fort Knox, (that was a James Bond movie).I just almost get sick to my stomach, it just sounds so great. Sigh. cocoloveplz

that was me,after I got back from the doctor. I met Carolyn, at the restaurant, and she said, “how did it go?” I answered. “I don’t know,” and started to order something to eat. Carolyn looked at me puzzled; “what you mean you don’t know? What did he say?” Puzzled further Carolyn, at me. I puzzled back; “I don’t know. He never says anything anymore he just looks at me with his blank stare!”.

I was indeed the above jellyfish, quivering in the water, afraid and sure that a shark was going to come by and eat me up. Or, I was going to go to my doctor, and he would look at me with that fishy stare.– – which means, that after quite a few years of being his patient, he doesn’t know who I am, what I am, or anything about me, especially that I’m allergic to penicillin. He especially does not remember that when he writes out a prescription for an antibiotic.and this is a young doctor, not an old guy with burnout!

but at peace health Hospital Corporation, and all its clinics, it’s the young doctors who have burnout, and it’s the old doctors who have retired, so they don’t have to have anything to do with socialized medicine. it’s the young doctors, like Dr. Yah, my young Asian Dr.,who can’t remember my name or anything else about me, even though he’s seen me for years.

that’s what peace health Hospital Corporation clinics and systems do to them; the huge torturous schedule, they run them through, they burn out early, and you die, because they don’t even know what you’re allergic to any more.

I looked at Carolyn, and pondered (I do that really well); “maybe I should go to another clinic?” I said. She looked at me blankly, also; “it won’t do any good, they’re all the same. All the HMOs, and the Medicare clinics, and all the older people and us baby boomers, we all get the same Dr.s; they all graduated from the same specialty school, “idiots anonymous” and with a side specialty in “didn’t I see you last summer? –, or were you a patient? –. I don’t remember your name!–” it doesn’t do any good unless you’re very, very wealthy, with excellent insurance.

“We’re all stuck with the idiot new young doctors who couldn’t give a shit, send you to a psychiatrist because they don’t want to give you a diagnosis, it’s too much work; and they wouldn’t be able to remember what you’re allergic to, even if you had the biggest malpractice suit against them in the country.

“They don’t care! That’s because they are all either BURNED OUT, or they really just don’t give a SHIT! They don’t like the insurance, so they don’t want to work anymore!” I nodded at her, she was right. Unless we were super wealthy,,we were all in the same boat.

I too, was in the brave new world of medicine, where you have Medicare or Medicaid, or both, and they suck it all up.these hospitals and clinics just love that money!

But if you get sick seriously, you’re in a lot of trouble; your Dr. won’t diagnose you, he won’t remember your name, and he’ll think that your “tennis elbows” are a sign of rheumatoid arthritis without testing.– – yeah, if you really get seriously sick, you better call the funeral home, make out your will, and prepare to be inundated with morphine (hopefully.)

– – you’re in Eugene, Oregon, and you are stuck with the insurance that has no health ASSURANCE, and you’re going to die!

“hey,now,” I said to Carolyn as we ate lunch, “maybe I’ll never get disastrously ill or ever get anything seriously wrong with me again; maybe I’ll be lucky.” “Yes,” she answered, swallowing a noodle, “and pigs will fly over Eugene tonight, and I’ll be there with a shotgun to bring home the bacon!” She looked at me grimly; “what you mean you’re never going to get something serious? All of us get something SERIOUS!!  wE ARE OLD!it’s just that, when you finally get something SERUOUS, you need a good enough medical team to get you well from it!”

I looked at her silently, mouthing silently. “What the hell am I supposed to do about it?” She answered me just this silently mouthing out the words “get some good life insurance on you, and then leave a message to your sister. after you die from malpractice,SUE the bloody hell out of the doctor and the hospital Corporation!  At least you can get some type of revenge.”

we both decided not to have any dessert, it was too unhealthy. I had had enough UNHEALTH  that  day.I tried again, “well, if he misdiagnosis me, can I just sue him for malpractice, then get plenty of money so I can get well?” She looked at me again, wistfully wiping her mouth with a napkin, “you know that nobody can SUE that fucking–hospital–clinic–corporation, for malpractice and ever  win!!”

I remembered,, when I had to go to Dr. Chapman, they used to call her “Dr. Chapman the Sadistic,” in the other peacehealthfamily clinic, and she decided,(once again,) that what was wrong with me, was not physical, and she sent me to a psychiatrist – – for BAD FEET! There was no such thing as a bone doctor, and the only foot specialist who was an orthopedist, in all of Lane County, refused to take me because he didn’t like Medicare.

Well, WHO DID LIKE MEDICARE? Not when it’s been cut to shreds!HELL, I didn’t like it either!

Carolyn and I sat there, chewing our cud,while we finished our coffee.”I decided I’m not going to vote Republican, next election, not any Republicans, I’ve decided,” I finally said stirring my coffee. “I finally found out that they’re going to cut Social Security at least 20%, get rid of Medicare and make us get insurance,instead, and get rid of all seniors health benefits.

“. I can handle having Hitler in the presidential office, or HILLARY in it, but I can’t face having myself lying in bed at home, slitting my wrists because I’m dying of something, and I have no insurance of any kind. Not even this stuff!I don’t think patriotism is as important as, “PERSONAL POLITICS.” Meaning, whatever politics keeps you well, healthy and alive, that’s the one you should vote for.” Caroline just smiled at me.

“now you’re getting the spirit of the saying, now you understand!” She said. “Now you get the way this world and this country, runs!! “what’s in it for me?!” That’s the name of the game.” I looked at her mysteriously, and mentioned “but what am I going to do with my doctor, Dr.Yah? if he doesn’t care when I’m sick or when I’m well, how is he going to notice when I’m terribly, terribly ill?” She looked at me grimly.

“HE’S NOT.” She finished shaking her head. “You’re in the same boat with all the rest of us, you’re going to have to go out and find a doctor, and pay him CASH to get you well.you’re going to have to dump Dr. Yah, and send him back to mainland China, where he came from.”

but I looked at Caroline, just as sadly, “but Caroline, that’s what my parents did, years ago when my dad had cancer!PAY MONEY! It cost so much, we had to sell our house and our land, and we didn’t have anywhere to live for a long time! It cost us everything, we lost it all, trying to pay the doctor bills!”I kept looking at her; “isn’t that all supposed to change now? Aren’t you supposed to NOT LOSE EVERYTHING, when you get sick now, since we have insurance?!”.

Carolyn smiled, with that wisdom that only she could possess, with the wisdom of the ages in her eyes, making her look much older, unfortunately. She said gently, “Sandramina, just because you have health insurance, doesn’t mean you have HEALTH ASSURANCE! honey, it just ain’t the same thing at all!”

here I am, in my old little kitchen, and I have had a gift of that fancy brand popcorn,Orville Redenbachers’ popcorn.

so, how do I pop this new popcorn? If you guys remember the old science fiction stories of the future, or even the Jetsons family in the future, you remember that our future would have all kinds of wonderful, easy to use, technically fancy superduper appliances. – – Which would do all the work automatically, and we wouldn’t have to do it. Well here we are in this fancy future, and it’s not exactly what we thought it was going to be.klink_by_creepyjellyfish-d7a49fu

for one thing, we now have CON – AGRA, the huge massive company that makes all food, just about. And they are in control of this fancy popcorn. So if you try to go and e-mail or talk to any of these people about why you can’t figure out how to microwave your popcorn, at the right speed or hotness, you can’t get a hold of anyone on any of their webpages.NO CUSTOMER SERVICE.SmileyFactory_by_Miamoto (2)

yeah, welcome to the future! We have machines we can’t figure out how to use. We have microwaves we can’t figure out how to POP POPCORN; we have to use the manual, just to figure out how to do it. And it still doesn’t work because the speed and the amount of corn is not the same as the microwave instructions.cute_robot___free_avvie_by_r0se_designs-d4ki7adgif

I was told long ago that I was more technically advanced then people in my age group, but I guess that’s not saying much. I was always the one who could program their VCR. And yet, now I cannot program the stupid microwave at the proper heat and speed. And, when I go on the website of the popcorn company, it turns out to be CONAGRA COMPANY,  and they don’t want to hear from you. Their supposed e-mail connection doesn’t exist.cubiclessmiley-chores015

the only thing that both these companies, the popcorn company and the huge massive food supplier, CONAGRA  have in common, is they both have a Facebook page. Maybe I should thank ZuckerBerg for inventing the only connection to companies who have no customer service and don’t want to give you any.. It is our only outlet to collar them, complain, and tell everybody they are fucking up.super_smash_bros_emote_by_MenInASuitcase

-if anyone actually cares, because WHERE ELSE CAN YOU GO, FOR FOOD SUPPLIES? CONAGRA IS IT.begplz

You can go to local small farms in Oregon, around Lane County, but that’s a long ways to go for your food. You have to drive all around all the different farms, finding your fruits and vegetables. Some people think that’s fun, but only because they’re young. I’m not.Emoticon_Rainbow_by_Shadall

I complained to Carolyn, as usual. “What they hell am I supposed to do, go get a computer education so I can use my microwave popcorn?” And then I thought, “how come all those wonderful science fiction writers didn’t predict this? This was never on Star Trek, they always had food makers that effortlessly made your food to exact specifications, and they tasted good. NO CONAGRA; NO TASTELESS FOOD. No lack of diversity, and complete conformism and boredom of food! Gene Roddenberry, you should turn over in your grave.”Most_of_my_DA_family__Part_Two_by_forestsofazarathexquisitechef

also, the future, the fabulous future, was not supposed to have no choices of food, that would force you to try and go out and raise your own watermelon, (if you could get the seeds on the black market,) Somehow, very expensive. “Antique seeds.” But forget raising your own food; we have major droughts, dry soil, bugs out of control. Welcome to “world climate change” and every other disgusting thing in Oregon,you can think of.huge BANANA SLUGS! And rampant out-of-control BLACKBERRY BUSHES.oddish_by_creepyjellyfish-d7a498b

OR you could spend a lot of gas and energy, running around to all those tiny little farms here, and paying a fortune for a watermelon, IF they were different than the “seedless, tasteless” watermelon in the supermarket.Driving_school_by_Kath602

NO THANK YOU! DO I want to make my life more futile, time-consuming, and harried? Nope!suicide (1)

all these little farms have not gotten together to have a very large farmers market. The one we have is tiny. So much for organically growing people,dancetogether who think we all have tons of gasoline in cars, and TIME, to go visit them and buy their stuff!once again, the fantasy version of “organic, natural, small farm LUXURY”.cresselia_by_creepyjellyfish-d7a43mw

the person who gave me the super Special fancy popcorn, I could not tell what troubles. I was having; I would sound really stupid. so, I guess I’ll try it at a different speed or hotness, and risk burning it. Or, I could just pour all the seeds into a big kettle, and do it over the stove,like the antique. I am.historcial03.gif kitchenstov

“Honey, remember your old granny, when I’m on my deathbed, telling you, can’t you please pop me some of that stupid popcorn before I die? That is my last wish!”_granny__rewamp_by_MenInASuitcase

Caroline was chatting at me, while I was desperately trying to make my plumbing in my toilet and bathroom work. My house was a very old house, and I had just a few months ago spent $2000 on a new shower installed (which I hated) and also new carpentry and plumbing for the underneath part in front of my toilet.fantasy04.gif witchstirpot

The toilet floor was always falling in, costing me lots of money in plumbing bills, carpentry, and everything else that tradesmen can hit you with, when your toilet and bathroom fails. The PLUMBING, that is.

“I don’t know what to do,” I said desperately. I had talked to the Roto-Rooter man, who had cleaned out my whole plumbing line, all the way to the city water hookup. – Which always cost a lot of money, and we did not own our own sewers; people in Eugene and Lane county had to pay taxes forever, on their own sewers. And we had to pay for wastewater, water water, you name it water. We had to pay and pay and pay and pay for sewer lines!

“the Roto-Rooter man said, if my own sewer line, which is hooked up to the city sewer line, is destroyed, it might cost me as much as $10,000 to put in a new one, just to get a shower, and a toilet, and water in a basin in the bathroom” I groaned.my bathroom was SO OLD, back then they all made the drain plug right into the cement foundation. The plumber and the carpenter had never seen anything like it, but back then that’s what they all did. But now! – – I think the whole thing was going to fail.

“Caroline, what the hell am I going to do? This could cost me thousands and thousands of dollars that I don’t have!” She was off on another tangent ignoring me; “I just found out a fantastic secret about Mayor Kitty; you know what it is?” I looked at her sourly; “I could care less about what’s wrong with Mayor Kitty, meow me ow!what’s the matter, she’s got a hairball??”

There was one other thing, if my bathroom was completely unfixable; a plumber could build a sideline, directly to the sewer line, new pipe right to the toilet, shower, and they said directly bypassing the whole underneath defunct drain system. But you would have to get a GOOD PLUMBER, and nothing like that existed, that I knew of the Eugene.

ACTUAL GOOD PLUMBERs in Eugene Oregon? That was like trying to find a snowball, in HELL

Eugene and this County had “tradesmen, anonymous” the worst tradesmen that you could ever find. I shuddered to think trying to find a real plumber that understood what I meant, about building an outside plumbing line, directly to my toilet and bypassing the old drain.

I commiserated with my sister, in another state over the phone; she was having the same problem, a failing bathroom in her old house! EVERY OLD HOUSE bathroom goes defunct! No more plumbing!what were we going to do? If we didn’t get  GOOD plumbers, we were screwed!

And all the trades men in the United States now, were all bad. Everybody who did a job in the United States now, did a lousy mess of it ! There was no such thing as an efficient,Smart, and competent tradesmen or otherwise human in the United states who knew what they were doing at their work!and all the old, old fashion good workers, were all retiring or dying off.

“they must all be employees of Microsoft and Windows,” I mumbled bitterly, but Carolyn was not paying any attention. I paid no attention to HER. What was she saying about Mayor Kitty? Who cared about Mayor Kitty and her ailments; She had already done so much damage to the city, physically and literally,it was unfixable, just like my plumbing and bathroom. But I was so tired and exhausted, I started to listen to her and sit down. “I had analyzed and examined all the behavior all the time, of Mayor Kitty, and I got somebody to hack into her medical records. Guess what? Guess what about Mayor Kitty?”

“okay I give up, what about it?what’s up with her?” I asked. Carolyn started to gasp and giggle; “according to the mayor’s medical records and her doctor, all that wild, hyper, fantastic building behavior, of tearing out huge avenues, spending millions on green dragon buses, and taking all the cars off the road, all that manic behavior adds up to one thing; she’s bipolar.”

I paused to listen; “Hmmm… Well that would explain a lot, wouldn’t it?” I replied. “And,” Carolyn continued gasping with amazement; “according to her records, she is not in control on medication very well; she keeps having manic episodes tremendously, all the time anyway! And nobody knew about it.the whole town just thought she was very enthusiastic, full of energy, and knew what she was doing.” “NOBODY thought she knew what she was doing,” I commented. “We all knew she was crazy, we just didn’t know it was official!”

It sounded horrible.it sounded like Ronald Reagan all over again!”you’re not making this up just to entertain me away from my plumbing, are you?” I asked her. “Absolutely NO, this is the God awful truth, I saw all the records the hacker showed me, myself. She has been MANIC, out-of-control, with very disturbing behavior officially as a bipolar person. Plus, she also has Alzheimer’s coming on badly!” I whistled. “WOW! Double and triple– Ronald Reagan! Say, does anybody else know about this? Just you and the hacker?”

“this is the first time I have told anyone about it,”whispered Carolyn to me conspiratorially. “And this time it is NOT A FAKE STORY, just to enliven your blog episode! I wish it were! She’s still fucking around with the whole town, on a manic,crazy bent, and nobody’s going to stop her! “” Eugene, Oregon, the mental sanatorium!” I chuckled. “But now yes, it is official.””this also is to blame for all those huge campaigns to make Eugene “Art Center of Oregon” and “art center of the United States”, make us all famous and rich by using art!” Said Carolyn finally.”wow, that really makes a lot of sense!” I finished up with.

“what are you going to do with this news?”I asked, finally. “Can you give it to any newspapers?” “None of the newspapers in Oregon will accept news like that, they always shelve any inside dope about any of their leaders, until it gets so bad, they can’t hide it anymore. Nobody will publish this damn thing!” “Well, if you can officially leak it to newspapers and news, what are you going to do with it?” I asked her.

.Carolyn paused for effect, and then started; “I am going to LEAK IT EVERYWHERE, I’m going to LEAK all this information about Mayor Kitty, on comments all over the WEB! I’m going to send anonymous letters to every single anti-kitty faction, I’m going to go undercover, and just LEAK THE MEDICAL INFORMATION, and even if I can get it on “wiki leaks” (if they want it and if they still exist.)

“do you think that will really work?” I finally asked her. “After all, nobody ever reads my blog; where else are you going to put it and not get sued?” I further said “Carolyn, I don’t think anybody CARES that Mayor Kitty is bipolar, constantly manic, and out-of-control, that’s why the liberal idiots like her! They adore her for being that way!they love her grandiose, over-the-top, phantasmagorical, taxing, socialistic, insane , dictatorial, cutthroat criminal practices! That’s why they voted her in, they’re never going to 21 her out or even believe that! THEY DON’T CARE!”

I continued, relentlessly; “just like no plumber or tradesmen, gives a shit about any of my bathroom plumbing problems! They could care less, they just want to collect  thousands of bucks for fucking it up further! I talked to my sister about it I think I know what I’m going to do if this all goes south and south very expensively.” Carolyn looked at me wonderingly.

“I might do what a lot of people around this area do;” I started. “Get somebody to dig me an OUT HOUSE, in the back, and use that.it never gets that freezing cold, during the winter that I can’t go out to an outhouse in the back. And I can make – temporary inside deposits, properly – while I can’t make it to the outside. I have to do that anyway, every single time my plumbing goes south and I am throwing money down the toilet! ALL THE TIME! I’m sick of it!”

I continued, “and that shower? I hate the stupid thing, it’s like a tomb! I’ll get a BATH TUB, and simply hose water into it, from the kitchen, and just let it drain out when I’m done. I only take a bath once a week, I don’t need it anymore than that! My skin is too dry to bathe more OFTEN!”I paused for effect. “Taking a shower in that horrible shower stall, is so bad, I hate it I hate it I hate it! Even filling up a bath tub once a week, and then letting it drain out would be better! It’s not that much of an inconvenience compared to that horrible SHOWER stall that I hate! That cost me $2000, and it is a piece of SHIT!” I once again paused for effect, watching Carolyn’s face.

“so you’re saying,” replied Carolyn calmly, “your bathroom is OVER WITH. It’s dead. You’re going to have a bathtub, hose water into it, once a week, and have your toilet in the back in an out -house.(and when you can’t get out to the back, you will have “temporary”, mmmm.. “Arrangement”) well, I can’t say you’re wrong; your toilet and your whole bathroom plumbing are breaking down, all the time, for years, constantly. If the whole DRAIN just doesn’t work anymore, and you can’t get any good plumbers to just do outside PIPES directly to the toilet, shower, basin, I might do the same thing.”

“– – give up on getting plumbers and tradesmen and carpenters, and shower – fitters to actually DO THEIR JOBS PROPERLY, and give up on THEM, also.I can understand that, actually after all this is Oregon, and that’s the whole way now,in the United States; nobody can do their jobs anymore.None of our MAJOR SOFTWARE WORKS!!(BILL GATES, YOU FUCKER!!).”

“The Pres. and the US Fed Govt. CAN’T DO THEIR JOBS ANYMORE. the rest of all professions,workers, dentists, tradesmen, CAN’T DO THEIR JOBS. Your bathroom plumbing is over?

“We have a bi-polar, manic Mayor in Eugene, tearing up the city, and NOBODY STOPS HER! She’s turning us into a jobless, business-less Detroit;  a non-profit-socialist-Saint-Vincent-DePaul-work-slavery-for-minimum-wage-county and city!!

“God, China would love this; SLAVE-WORKERS, working for pennies!! Saint Vincent De Paul is the MAJOR EMPLOYER of all Eugene. HAH!! HAH!! WHY complain about work-slaves in China? Saint Vincent De Paul has done that here!!”Move to colorful, hippie, cool Eugene, Oregon, and work for slave-wages the rest of your life!” St. Vinnie makes Wal-Mart look like the REAL saint. ” I had to stop poor Caroline, she saw all the poor in Eugene, and Lane, all working for Saint Vinnies for nothing, pushing out all the real business-jobs, so the Fat, Sainted Non-Profit could exploit the Hell out of them. I knew she tried to help them, but what could she do, against Saint Vinnie’s? What could she do about bi=polar Mayor Kitty? NOTHING.

You get the true picture of Eugene, OR; a crazy,out-of-control mayor; every working-person on slave-wages to Saint Vinnies; no real business, no real jobs. Americans who can’t do their jobs correctly anymore. Lousy tradesmen.it made my plumbing fiasco, look like heaven. At least I could DO SOMETHING, finally about my bathroom plumbing. But who the hell was going to fix Eugene Oregon?

a couple of friends were over at my house, having pitchers of lemonade in the hot weather, and looking at my collection of “Pennsylvania Dutch hex signs”. “Did these signs used to be made by witches?” Asked one of my friends. “I think that’s true,” I replied, “but the hex signs were transferred over to Christianity, and all participation in any witchcraft was ended. Now, a Pennsylvania Dutch hex sign is a Christian sign, you put in your home that blesses everyone and wishes you a happy home. And they’re very beautiful,So I like collecting them.”.

“I really don’t know very much about them,” I continued, sipping my lemonade, “I should look them up and find out all the history. I’m sure it’s all there on the web.” “In other words,” continued my friend, “they don’t have anything to do with witches anymore, it’s just an emblem of the past.” “Yes”, I said, “that’s it. They had a witchy past, but now there’s no associations except the name “hex”.and there are many different kinds of them, all round like this and very beautiful. Different designs, that have nothing to do with witches anymore.”

“I think I heard the other day in the paper,” broke in Caroline, “that they’re going to make them illegal because they are an emblem of all horrible past, In the United States. Witchcraft! So I think they’re going to ban them completely.” “Are you kidding me?” I exclaimed angrily. “Where the hell did you read that? This isn’t a Confederate flag , you know. All the witches are dead! If they ever existed at all!”    “Just the same”, continued Caroline, coming back from the kitchen with more ice, “I’m pretty sure the laws going to completely ban them.”

“after all,” she continued calmly, “you can’t have history of witches floating around in the United States, threatening the present and the future, and the people who are very scared of witches now. That’s why they’re going to ban them; all those people are scared to death of witches coming back to haunt everyone again, because of their emblem. So the law wants to get rid of all the Pennsylvania Dutch hex signs and destroy them and ban them from being made anymore or shown anywhere, public or private.”

I began to get very, very angry, and I started throwing ice cubes at a photograph of the latest governor of Oregon. I missed a lot. Okay, it was very hot, you can miss when you’re trying to kill her with ice cubes.

“I can’t believe this!” I shouted, getting extremely upset, “they already got rid of and banned the Confederate flag, even though there’s no southern civil war going on, and all the Civil War heroes and people of the South are all dead! They’re scared to death of the Confederate flag, so they’re going to ban all free expression! And ban all culture They don’t like!but who the hell, on earth believes that all the witches are going to come back to life? What kind of stupid idiot ass hole liberal, has got a bug up their asses this time?!!”

“probably the same ass holes, who banned the Confederate flag, and also they banned all  mascots of American Indian mascots for team sports.” Replied Carolyn calmly emptying the rest of the whiskey into her lemonade again. She just needed more ice cubes, but that’s Carolyn. “It’s open season on banning any kind of emblem at all, that the liberals don’t like.”I just glared at her.

“Don’t worry, Sandramina, ” she continued with a smile, “you’ll get used to it in time. I know, it’ll get weird when every single emblem and every single mascot, and every single piece of history, everywhere is banned and done away with, but it’s all for the good. (That’s what it says here in the paper New York Times. Anyhow.)”

 I was still very irritated and mad as hell. “Do you know where else they do this all the time?” I finally continued. “They do this in communist RUSSIA. All the time! Communist Russia constantly gets rid of its history destroys it all, erases all historical people, battles, happenings, and anything having to do with the past.or anything having to do with the truth!”

“That includes people pictures of people portraits, events, it all gets ground into mulch , and it’s all banned.then they INVENT NEW HISTORY and events that never happened to take the place of the old ones They destroyed. Very inventive! They completely remake their past and deny that it ever existed!”

my friends looked around at each other; horrified. “Then why make our kids learn history, when it would just be all he erased completely?” One of them said.”you can’t really tell what is REAL, and what is IMAGINARY!.that leads people to invent completely false civilizations and histories, and do away with the real ones.”

Carolyn nodded happily. “Yeah, isn’t it great? We can erase all the Vietnam War, and we can erase World War II, we can erase the depression we’re having now, we can erase every single problem like it never existed! They could even erase everything we’re saying right now!” I looked at Carolyn, she was getting giddy with mass forgetfulness. And she was enjoying it. “

“You’re absolutely crazy!” I yelled at her.”then nothing is REAL! Nothing ever gets done! Nothing ever actually happened at all!” I felt faint myself. It was the twilight zone of dementia and memory disease, found only in the very elderly! And a WHOLE COUNTRY was adopting it?! Just to get rid of stuff They didn’t want to remember, that was unpleasant?


“sure,” continued the very fascinated and freaked out Caroline, heady with  transformational powers, “just BAN and DO AWAY WITH anyone or anything or ANYONE, all of history, any emblems or nationalities, or ethnicities or cultures that you don’t like! Just BURN IT ALL! Burn every single bit of it and make it illegal to own!”

“it looks like I can’t own my little Polish flag, and fly it,” replied one of my friends gloomily. “After all, Poland is NOT in the United States so, I guess that emblem is out.”  one of my other friends said. “I guess that also means I can’t wear my Star of David, because that would remind everyone of the history of Israel and Jews.” – – “And you’re not supposed to remind everyone of ancient history. It’s too upsetting.”

we all looked at each other with foreboding.”you suppose they’re going to do away with the history of the Civil War later?” Asked one of my friends. “Well,” continued Caroline, the expert on this, “that would be the next thing to do; that would be the next stage. BAN ALL HISTORY of a country. Yes, you don’t want all that history of our wars upsetting people!”

I still glared at Carolyn, my ex-friend. “Yes, you don’t want to upset anybody who used to be related to slaves, and remind them that all their ancestors were horribly abuse in the South. That would give them real PTSD wouldn’t it?”

Caroline continued on her rampant rant; “of course, everybody needs their PERSONAL HISTORY erased! just ERASE the whole Civil War!It never existed!”

“you’re going to be quite an  infection to history classes and teachers, aren’t you, Caroline?” I questioned her. She still didn’t stop her ranting and raving. She was getting ready to go out and buy ERASERS, big enough to erase all the history of the United States, AND EUGENE and LANE COUNTY would vanish as well!

“it doesn’t matter if you erase all the history of Eugene and this county, in Oregon,” I interrupted her,Finally,” there history is so bad, it could only get worse ! Eugene doesn’t need any history! it certainly doesn’t have any future!”—

“but, you’re going to erase and get rid of all the rest of important history and all its emblems and tokens, and all the MEMORIES in everyone’s minds?all the TRUTH that happened?”

Carolyn looked at me calmly. “History will lie, as usual,” she ended with;”It always lies in the end anyway.  Why not just make it OFFICIAL!!!!?”

(Sandraminadotty, who no longer has any record of existing in Oregon, Eugene, Lane County, and who’s all birth certifications, school records, graduate degrees and work records have been EXPUNGED from history. After all, my real true life history might upset my parents who hated me, some day, so I don’t want to remind them of all the trauma they caused, or what effects it had on my life. It just might get in someone’s way, who doesn’t want to know it existed.) fantasy05.gif witcpum   smiley_emoticons_hexefliegendcool.gif witchfly witch.gifflyingbroom _GiveMeYourCandy__by_MenInASuitcaseani07.gif wizard insane10.gifstabbing fantasy05.gif witcpum fantasy06.gif wtczom  fantasy04.gif witchstirpot   zombie11.gifnew
