hello Ron! How are you doing!!

Here in Austrlia we are so baked by the sun. It's so hot that I don't want to spend too mcuh time on the computer.... this place I rent has no air-con to speak of.....

Also I've been out and about doing things..... what a hoot, the other day my work friend and I had a radio interview.... we both came over pretty well.... but the presenter was appaling!!

The other thing I've done is taken a series of textile art sewing lessons and similar..... oh what fun....so I'm dashing all around looking for fascinating fabrics and threads.....

I always think you should be learning something....

So what are you all doing and how is your resolve to look after yourselves?

Thanks for the kind words, ron. It's a great feeling to have an unsolicited compliment like that.... you've made my day....

Take care.... ladyv x

Dear Ron,
Oh wonderful!
You've recovered the real Ron and given him the respect and rights he deserves. Well done!

You have done really well. I know how difficult it is to see through these people...... believe me, I've been really taken financially by a user.

It's so much easier to see it for someone else.... but since you say that I helped you, I gratefully thank you for the opportunity.

You are a giving and caring man, so give yourself a huge pat on the back....

you avoided a fate that no one wants to get snared in!

Congratulations!

LadyV! It's Bangles here! Haven't been on much and saw this thread and knew you'd read it. How about these..Propitious,vituperate,copius.
Good ones, huh?!?! I've been doing some escape reading and finding some new words while at it. Hope you are well. Don't have long as have a Dr.app't soon. Haven't been on as we have a new computer, and like anything else new, I'm not used to it yet, don't like it, and therefore not getting on like I usually do. Til later, Bangles

It is good to see you posting Bangles. Missed seeing you around!New words are fun to learn and keeps our minds active. Glad you got a new computer and are starting to figure everything out in using it.

Ladv., you have been missed too although I know with the heat and lack of air conditioning, you explained that it isn't as easy to sit and post. I hope you are enjoying your sewing lessons and all your activities.

Take care.
Love, TS

Hello Ron, Bangles and Too Scared,

How lovely to find messages waiting for me!

Bangles, what great words..... what's the middle one about! I can guess the others... but that one!! I have a young friend who is a linguist..... when he made a mistake with a date on our group email, he wrote a suitable quote in Latin (can't remember what). So now, when ever anyone slips up with a date or a name of anything else we all shout, Eratum!!!

I'll have to see if I can get a word to comfound YOU now!!! I think it's going to be difficult, though.

Too Scared...
Wonderful to hear from you.... How are you going? It's been dreadfully hot and humid.... but the other day we had a huge storm, and now it's moderately hot and VERY humid.... perhaps a change is as good as a holdiay!

It's cooling down soon.... it has to... we are past equinox... I can hardly wait.... then comes the gales and rains and winds, and then we all get really cold because these houses are not built for protection against extremes of termperature.
This is one of the drawbacks of living in Australia.... they are slow on some things... but they are also relaxed, laid back, and crime and other social problems are very much less common than in England or the States. We have to take the good with the bad, I suppose.

Ron, how are you, my friend?

Love, ladyv xxx

Hi you all...I did not intentionally stop posting; combination of being really, really, busy, a little depression (source unknown....well, a bunch of things,I guess), that and my husband getting us a new computer. I was at Best Buy when he made his decision and I suppose I should have offered input instead of playing the virtual games and browsing through the CDs and videos. So, in a sense, I deserve what I got! A computer I don't like; can't use. And, whoa, it's supposed to be faster? I beg to disagree....If it stays as it is, I will never be forwarding cute e-mails to my friends or get on any sites. I never saw anything slower. Maybe because it's AOL 9 (their newest version )and everyone is using it? I used to be like on AOL 5 or 6 and I know most people had gone on to newer versions. I, too, had tried to but could never download it even after trying 3 different disks! We were planning on handing the old computer down to my daughter, but I am thinking of asking him to hook it up somewhere...maybe in the bedroom...for me to still use. What a pain. So that's what's been going on. Nice to know I"ve been missed though. (Even though I am intruding on Ron's thread!) Lady V...you are so good. Re: new words--the middle one ...vituperate: to find fault with excessively; to berate, scold, rail at. Noun: vituperation (abusive language) ; adj. vituperative. Good new one for us! Well, Ladyv and anyone else reading...may you all have a good day, night...whichever the case. Take care. Bangles

Hi Bangles and all,
Thanks for the word.... I hope no one vituperates in me! I might just double-vituperate back!!

Or should I have said bi-vituperate?!

What a good idea, Bangles, to set up the computer for you, so you can do your own stuff as you like to.

Ron, are you still looking after your own needs? I hope so....

TS, hope you are fine..... here's a question for you that I just did o a quiz..... SEA what is the first word that comes into your mind to describe it.

Does any one else want to try? I'll tell you what it's all about AFTER you answer!!!!

Don't worry, it's not embarassing... really.... honestly.... well, all right....a bit.... NO - only joking! truly.

Lady V...you're asleep now, or I should, ought to be. Here in NW PA, it is snowing. Yes. Went to let the dogs out the a.m. and pouring down rain. they don't like rain, contrary to what evryone says about dogs, these two don't. So, back into the garage and house they went. About an hour later, I tried again and upon opening the garage door, the ground was totally white and big flakes falling! This, they did not mind...went out and did their duties, but were in a hurry to get back in and warm.
Hubby has been out of town. Coming back tomorrow. Not too bad, here alone. Took the Dane last night and we went to Arby's where I got us each a cheese and bacon melt. We ate in the car. Sat watching traffic and people. How pathetic, huh? Someday I'll be the town "dog lady" everybody'll be laughing and talking about. Sigh.
No one has vituperated me lately, LadyV!!! I went out and exercised at Curves this morning then roamed around K-Mart and got a few cleaning supplies. Am going over later to see my aunt. She wanted a few things and she is not feeling well. Told her I'd be on over.
Well, Lady V, hope you awaken rested. And hope anyone else reading is doing well. Bangles

Hi Bangles and Ladyv. I can't believe you have snow Bangles. We have sunshine and probably 70 degrees here in Oklahoma. I am so ready for spring and this is a wonderful day to be outside. I walked this morning and it was nice. I am also trying to eat healthier and get some exercise in - I'm trying to walk 4-5 times a week and then go to a place called Tan and Tone to use the robotic machines.

Ladyv. I get very nervous doing things that might embarrass me so I am the worst person for you to ask about trying the quiz. I also didn't quite understand what to do as you spelled the word "see" like the water type of "sea" so I didn't know if that was part of the fun. The teacher in me comes out to quickly and I get anxious over things like that. Sorry. I hope you are still having a bit cooler weather and that you are doing well.

Have a great weekend everyone.
Love, TS

I would love some of your input over on the lib. brew side, if you are so inclined to honor such a request...

Love to you, beautiful!

Snow, snow, and more snow too scared! The Schnauzer couldn't even go out on her lead as it is wet snow and her lead had about three inches on it! It was too heavy for her to drag! It is up past the dans'e "knees"! Yes, a storm advisory on for today. Hubby coming home from Tulsa tonight. Surprise for him! I did send him two snow pictures on his picture phone so he'll know what he's coming home to! More later, Bangles

Lady V...Almost forgot. SEA. You want to knw the word I associate with it? Well...several really. These would be the ones...Calm, restful, beaufitul. Is that what you mean? So what does it convey? That I'm a slow, sluggish, boring person?!?! Hee hee! Tell us more about your quiz. And, it's April and on my computer, I have the April words for the month. Lady V...no challenge. Mollify...we both know that. Unctious...we know. Granted, I can't spell it, but we know it. Ignoble and conduit are two more. Those, I'm not too sure of. It's off a site called "verbalenergy", I think. Take care. More later. Bangles

Tooscared: Looks like i'm the only one posting here...now that I've intruded on Ron's thread! (sorry , Ron). I read where you are from OK? My husband just came back from there last night...to all this snow we have. He goes there twice a year, to Tulsa, and really likes it. Weather usually nice...flowers blooming this time of year etc. Take care! Bangles

Hi Bangles. I grew up around Tulsa so I know the area well. Glad your hubby made it back safely although it was quite the weather change for him with our warm spring temps here in Oklahoma. Take care and thanks for writing. Thanks for trying Ladyv's quiz. I just didn't quite understand what to do and I get embarrassed a little too easily.

Love, TS

hey girls!
I've had such a busy time lately, and when I'm not busy, I'm falling asleep! alose friend thinks that I am first cousin to a dormouse! (Bandgles, did you guess... dorm sleep.... bet you did)!

I'm so glad that no one is being vituperous.... or ignoble..... to let themselves down by their less than honorable behavour.

I must try that site.

Now - I can't remember quite what I wrote....about the quiz.... and it seems that when I sleep I wipe memory!

Did I say what was your favouite sea animal?

Sorry girls..... it's gone midnight... I am sleepless in Perth, but not for want of a friend..... I slept so much today that I've thrown out my bodyclock - well that what it seems like.

Once you tell me what the Question was I'll be able to tell you the rest of it.

Yes, I'll drop by the other threads, Ren'ai..... better do it when I'm making a "modicum" ?Bangles? of sense!

Well, better dash... I feel a yawn coming on.... now who's moved the bedroom!?

Take care..... ladyv

Hi Bangles and TS and MJ and Ron-where are you!?

I looked up my prevous question.... and here it is....

here's a question for you that I just did on a quiz..... SEA what is the first word that comes into your mind to describe it.
-

Here is is better.....
SEA: What is the first word that comes into your mind to describe it?

-

(Now if I could only think what I was going to say about it!!)

Have you thoght of something?

Bangles did..... So everyone, think of a word that reminds you of the sea...... and think of a creature in the sea that you really like.....

Got it?

ANSWER:
The thought about the sea is the way your emotions are running for you.... Bangles, calm... peaceful.

Now the creature......

This may well describe the thing you care about most.

A man friend thought of a Mermaid - then reaslised that it represented someone he'd loved.... she'd been unobtainable and yet he was drawn to her.....

Mine was a sea-horse..... intelligence and uprightness...

What did you all get?

Hey..... I'm 'going on' a bit, aren't I?

I had better get ordinary, and say that I hope you are all well.

TS I feel so strongly that you have lots of shame issues and that perhaps the Lazaris tapes would help you break free of them. Shame is so damaging... and when you are mentally/emotionally free of it, your whole life changes.... everything is so much brighter and easier!

Bangles.... all that snow! I could see it with rose tinted glasses on.... but I'll bet it was not quite so 'picture post-card' when you and the dogs had to deal with it!

It's blessedly overcaste and raining today.... what a treat for sun-parched Perth.

Take care, folks, and let's take ourselves lightly!

Hi all,
How are you doing..... I am spending the day in creative persuits.... painting, sewing.... I've even been singing a bit! (that's enough!)

How's the snow scene? Today is one of those perfect days.... just warm, sunny and very slow.

Did you see my monach marry Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall on the TV. At first I, like so many Britons, thought it was a bit much......and now I think that a second try at being what you should have been is a great step toward healing... and that perhaps this will be good for Britain.

Any thoughts....

take care, friends,
ladyv

Hey Lady V. Wrote on Tumbles' Thread and addressed a couple of things your way. Well, trying not to be ignoble today! About the sea...favorite animal, well, I have a kind of fascination with those huge sea turtles. One time years back, we were vacationing with neighbors in South Carolina and we were at the shore. The waves were pretty big that day and lo and behold, this huge sea turtle, obviously in distress and in too close to shore, got thrown right up against my husband! It was quite a sight to see. Terrified him, as it would. I felt sorry for the poor thing and hoped it made it back out to wherever it came from. But, yes, I do like the sea turtles. Oh Lady V...doing more reading and should have good ones for you. How about malfeasance? I think I spelled it right. Not sure of the meaning. Will look it up or you tell me if you know! On the other thread, I mentioned that to me, you do not seem code, which is a good thing. I think I may be a little better, but only when I keep really busy and don't think. (Easy for me to do!!) Hubby going to RI and me spending Easter by myself here in the house with dogs and cats was not a good spell for me. I do miss my daughter terribly and I so wish she would just move back here, or I up there. Life is so brief and I'm not even with the most important person in mylife..daughter. Probably not as it should be, right?
If ever you don't hear from me for a real long time, it's because I think it would behoove my daughter to get on this site. Maybe not talking with you ladies...but I read some of these younger threads and what's going on and I know she'd relate. I think she'd do good to know that she's not alone out there "not finding somebody" or at least, not the right somebody. Quite obviously, I cannot continue writing if she gets onto this as she might jump threads etc. Can't take the chance. I would just tell her that I found this and that I had never written but read. That has just been a passing thought of mine. Well, all for now. Gonna go and get some things done yet tonight. Bangles

HI Ladyv and Bangles.

Bangles, my 2 cents is that your daughter might want to find a different site where she can be more anonymous without even you knowing what she is writing and sharing. The same for you as that would end any privacy you have had when you need to share things. I have been tempted to tell a friend about this site, but then I know that I would quit being as honest and open because I would worry more. So, I told this friend that I just didn't feel like I could tell her the site that I visit.

Ladyv. I think I do deal with some shame issues although I am starting to heal from past hurts. I judge myself more harshly than probably anyone else does. I just feel like I want to be a different person sometimes that acts differently and thinks differently and is never judgemental and always kind. Maybe that is fairytale, but I hear my own parents in my ear when I find myself being critical of other people or situations or even myself. I will look up the Lazaris tapes on the internet just to find out more about them.

I hope everyone has a good week coming up.

Love, TS

hello, Bangles, and TS and Ron...and anyone else I've failed to name,

Great word, Bangles..... mal..bad.....feasance... would that be like feasable..... if so the meaning would be Unkind Plans?

I've taken a pause and looked it up..... The dictionary on my computer says - Wrongful behavior by an official.

Okay, ya got me there, Bangles!
I'll think one up for you...... eeerm..... give me a while......I think I shall have to get the big guns out.

On the less-code subject..... I've worked at this stuff for a very very long time and have found myself in the company of wonderful people who've lead me along.... also Lazaris tapes have done a HUGE amount for me. I can't overstate that.... I worked on them for years - thers'a lot to listen to. - And the spiritual training, Qabalah etc. (probably not your Madonna stuff, though I don't really know what she does). It was the working on the Shame stuff that was the turning point, I believe. Lasaris Tapes - did it in depth. Then helping others... so you see it clearly for other people.... and can see it more clearly for yourself.

Anyway... I still have my moments.... but life is mostly a joy now.... and I couldn't do without my little anti-depressant pills, they don't change me, but they do put me on an even playing field with everyone else....

What I learned is that when all is said and done, when you've worked on your stuff and the Shame stuff, and life is still dark, you need the chimcal help to support you. That's it.... if you broke your leg, you'd need a support... same thing.... poor thyroid function.... you need support..... poor seratonin levels... you need a daily top-up. Simple as that for me.

TS, glad to know that you are doing so well. Yes - I know that hearing my mother coming through my own mouth was terrible... the guilt! .... my poor kids!! I don't do it anymore.... I told my children that what I did was wrong and I apologised and said I was working on it. And I did..... They tell me now that they are grown up and well-adjusted and happy adults, that they don't remember the bad old days... and they don't act any of that stuff out themselves.

So, I have found that the dysfunction can stop.... and I am going to have on my gravestone... The Rot Stopped Here.

I think too many of us get stuck in the Recovering Something .... and we never say we are a Functional Person.....

I think that if we believe we are never going to get over it... why are we still struggling to try to get over it ....well, that's perhaps why! We have defeated ourselves...

We were taught to be dysfuncltional... and we can darned well teach ourselves to be functional again! Not perfect..... of course.... but GOOD ENOUGH!

That's what set me free..... I am now a human being doing the best that I can.... and I am GOOD ENOUGH.

(The hint here is taht I got rid of the shame... it's that which is the rot).

Hi Ron..... How are you doing .... is everything okay with you? It doesn't matter if it's not... we are all human beings, learning by mistakes and getting past them.

I think it must be like we're all in a huge Maze, and we're all trying to find our way to the middle.... and we run up blind alleys from time to time. From that we learn the lay-out of the maze and need not run that way again cause we know it is not the path we want. Trial Error Correction Continue.

okay, Bangles I've got one!...... take this! - conterminous

Take care, all.
love ladyv

hi ladyv I haven't spoken to you before but really liked what you said about being GOOD ENOUGH!

"I am now a human being doing the best that I can.... and I am GOOD ENOUGH."

When we truly can belive this about ourselves it really does give us a new freedom. A freedom in which only comes from within. 😉

lady V....good thoughts. I guess I should look into those Lazurus tapes. I think if I feed myself with good thoughts and construct instead of destruct, I get off to a better start. Just that sometimes it is really hard. I have been trying to "reconnect," as I tell my husband with friends that we have seemed to have let go. Had a couple over Sat. evening and we all had a nice time. Some of these freinds, though, and you can't blame them, have gone on with their own lives more so now that they have extended families...children in law, grand kids etc. Me with my one and only and far, far away does not help. And I wonder if I had done things differently if I could have gotten her to stay here. That will always haunt me. I had a chance at it last summer and that is when she moved back up there! Job opportunities, you know, but still, all she has for family is her dad and me and we are here. On the plus side, we are going to go up there this weekend! I am looking forwared to it and I still have my bag packed from when I did not go over Easter but had to stay with the animals! Left it packed and open in the bedroom as a reminder to my husband that it was his lack of, or poor planning that caused me NOT to go along. (bit of a nasty streak there!) Well, got to go. Bangles
