Retailers always have another way to get us to part with our money. The latest one seems to be ‘pay-day deals’. I wonder how they know when we’ve been paid. It all sounds very Orwellian to me.

Brains in Pain

Toss the Typewriter

OCDLast night, I started reading Overcoming OCD: A Journey to Recovery by Janet Singer and Seth Gillihan (1/22/2015).  It was late, well past bed-time, and I figured I was good for a chapter or two before sleep overtook me.  An hour later, I was still reading.

On April 7, 2015, I’ll share more about this compelling book. But right now, I want to applaud this author and other authors who take it upon themselves to educate the public about mental illnesses.  Thank you Janet Singer, Seth Gillihan, Xavier Amador, Pete Earley, Fletcher Wortmann (Twitter Authors May 2014), and others who courageously speak out about their family’s journeys.

Another family-destroying disease is Alzheimer’s.  The Alzheimer’s Site Blog has shared a YouTube video that explains Alzheimer’s in a straightforward, simple manner.

Here’s hoping we all continue to learn and grow in our understanding of these diseases of the mind.

“the Times of the nineteenth of December had published the official forecasts of the output of various classes of consumption goods in the fourth quarter of 1983, which was also the sixth quarter of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. Today’s issue contained a statement of the actual output, from which it appeared that the forecasts were in every instance grossly wrong. Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones.”…George Orwell, “1984”

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell…

The bingo winner …

Bear Tales

Shared by Bear Tales follower Deena.

Man goes into a doctor’s office feeling a little ill.

The doctor checks him over and says, ‘Sorry, I have some bad news, you have Yellow 24, a really nasty virus. It’s called Yellow 24 because it turns your blood yellow and you usually only have 24 hours to live. There’s no known cure so just go home and enjoy your final precious moments on earth. So he trudges home to his wife and breaks the news.

Distraught, she asks him to go to the bingo with her that evening as he’s never been there with her before.

They arrive at the bingo and with his first card he gets four corners and wins $35.

Then, with the same card, he gets a line and wins $320.

Then he gets the full house and wins $5000.

Then the National Game comes up and he wins…
