    Thanks, Martin. I enjoyed my time here.


    Just like anything else, genres float in and out of style.


    Greetings from Colorful Colorado, Denise! You’ve found a friendly bunch. This site was undergoing some updates/changes behind the scenes, and we had almost given up on it. The “read the new posts since last visit” functionality seems to have broken since the update, which is somewhat annoying. I look forward to reading your perspectives and hope you enjoy your time here.


    Hubby and I really liked Black Panther.  We were also saddened to hear of Chadwick Boseman’s death.


    Paris for your 50th sounds lovely, rebecca!  When I divorced, I made a point of taking myself out to a nice restaurant I had never tried.  I still try to do that on occasion.  For the most part, we buy things when we want or need them…or we go on a weekend (or long weekend) road trip.


    I remember enjoying “The Time Machine” from 1960 and “Somewhere in Time” from 1980.  Wow, 20 years apart…and quite different storylines.  I don’t recall seeing Dr. Who, but I remember enjoying the others mentioned.  I would have to say that I liked “Back to the Future” least…not that I didn’t like it at all…just that I enjoyed the trilogy less than the others.


    I ordered takeout from the Costa Vida near my current work site.  They are offering stuffed avocados for a limited time, plus I didn’t have time to cook.  Neither did my husband because I need the kitchen for baking a cake this evening.


    I love whole wheat pasta, Rebecca!  Alas, it’s French Onion Soup for me tonight.


    [quote quote=238085]Sechseläuten (Switzerland) – Spring festival with a burning snowman who has firecrackers in his head and apparently forecasts the summer weather! Very interesting![/quote]I had never heard of such a thing!  I guess, that’s the one new thing I learned today.  🙂


    I’d like to add that it doesn’t matter what I or anyone else thinks about abortion.  At this point, it’s done…chastising or shaming someone for it isn’t going to reverse course.  All one can do is move on from here.


    I experienced a similar situation, only that my one friendship had run its course at the same time my ex and I divorced…and the other ran its course when I was laid off from my job about a year later.  The year that followed was the loneliest in my life!

    I was finally able to fill the various voids by taking dance lessons (when I was still employed), volunteering, and joining an online social group that met once a week for drinks/food/billiards.

    They say that time heals all wounds…it makes things easier, but nobody walks away from such abandonment and/or betrayal unscathed.

    The only advice I can offer is to keep busy, either physically (working out) or mentally (games and/or puzzles), or both.  If possible, immerse yourself in your own work…or look for another position where nobody knows you.  Finding social groups may not be easy in this environment, but it’s an option when things start opening up and when or if you feel safe socializing again on a superficial level (at first).

    Hang in there…


    Thanks, Martin!


    [quote quote=237888]It’s interesting. My way of logging in Rebecca is via a thread but when I changed to the second page it didn’t remember me. Maybe due to not saving cookies???[/quote]I believe, it’s the age-old problem of auto-refresh not happening on page display.  When a page seems to “think” you’re not logged in, just refresh it (F5).  It should “recognize” you after a refresh.  That’s what I had to do with this page, BTW.


    I had 34 today, all within 8-9 minutes.

    I’ve had a few password reset requests, but five thousand?!  OMG, Emily!  I understand, but I’m sorry to see you go.  Take care.
