    Mum and I (and also Dad) are pretty much leftists: although that’s how ‘right wingers’ would ‘label’ us.

    Labels are annoying. Look how librarian went!

    I kid! 🙂

    I don’t like labels but I do know this: a flat tax is hopelessly regressive. One excellent thing about our country -and I know that some Americans talk about “god…[Read more]

    Sounds like you don’t much believe in tax. 🙂

    High taxes are necessary and have proven to work.

    the thing s mum mentioned are good though and could work.

    Those music therapy classes and tests actually pay you.  CHeck your region for possibles. Also, the book clubs? Poetry clubs, blogging your thoughts, going for walks and talking to someone at their fence line about their garden. People do this to Mum who tries to stay in the…[Read more]

    I’m sure Puro understands -it’s Thane again!

    I’ real lucky in that my parents share the same opinions and some but not most of my mates do too.

    Mum was studying overseas in her early 20s and when she went back home she was back in the environment she was when she left. They never got on. Mum’s dad  died and she never went to the…[Read more]

    Hi there Miss Rori, it’s Puro (being let out without her much needed leash!).

    I can see that it’s very difficult in the States,  the UK and even here. I agree with ALL of you that it’s jolly tough. It really is (and I hope young Thane will read this too) and there aren’t easy answers are…[Read more]

    @missrori

    the therapy mum talked about is free. Also, see your doctor. If your mom is stopping you from doing things you need you could get a letter stating that from him or her.  Mom’s not behaving like a carer if that’s what she is. If she’s not, you don’t owe her anything at all. Also you can find organised groups which deal with people who…[Read more]

    @missrori

    It’s all good with the hugs ‘n’ stuff but the real issue -whether you’re living with your parents or not due to an illness, is that if you can work -and at night – you can find an inexpensive bed sit and move out. Close to work for buses, talk to a legal aid type place that can assist you into other living which will mean you’re happier…[Read more]

    @missrori

    Well, hi there!

    Are you feeling  a bit down?

    That’s understandable. I think a few months ago now Mum sent you some really good ideas such as those people who are completely free (under basic insurance) -music therapists. There are also buses and trains or perhaps a friend can drive you if you cannot drive? Your other option is to see…[Read more]

    Hey! Welcome to the site.

    Generally, if you want to post something new like a “hi I’m new” you can go to The Sofa or The Pub, even.

    But welcome and I really liked your song. It’s great.

    Some people on the Forum are watching some of the older Who shows from the ’60s and this is the thread for that.

    @bluesqueakpip @craig @whisht

    thank you for all those definitions and explanations: I asked for some and got more than I bargained for. The kerning thing I never knew about but the “upper case” story is awesome! That’s a tale for a party (our nerd parties are nerdy -we still use those foam guns and camp out in cupboards waiting to knock down our…[Read more]

    Sorry for the tedious questions: what’s “terrible kerning?”

    Also @missrori thank you for answering my qu about space operas.

    @craig

    thx for putting that up -don’t know anything about it. I really am suspicious of the guy who ‘says’ he’s ‘alone’ and I think the suited up guys are maybe reclaiming what was theirs? Like a doco about Indigenous peoples.

    Hey there!

    Thx for your selection.

    Yeah, I’m not sure about whether I like Orange’s version of Pft Day better than Reed. Mum actually does which I think is probably treasonous or something but on balance Reed’s is better to me, anyway

    It’s like Mum really liking Lea Salonga singing Les Mis  -and yet she says she doesn’t like musicals…[Read more]

    Nah, mate, you’re putting words in….. Generally when people dislike ‘their’ show they refer to “the show in decline.”

    I never said we don’t talk about the Doctor  – we talk about the show (in the 80s and 90s Mum never talked about it. with mates. Not EVEN in the 70s as a child).

    So we discuss new monsters;  new…[Read more]
