FLORIDA

i personally think write in would be a good idea with someone standing by to help those who are illiterate make their mark i saw a print of the florida and if that is really the way they are shame on someone that is not a vote it is a puzzle could it be because bushes brother is governor there if bush does get it we seniors will have to appeal to the congress not to let him give our social security away

FLORIDA

if they are all the same it shoukld be the law that they have an interpreter there or if it came to write in votes which isn't possible here it is all pounch in there should be someone to help those who could not read or write make their mark

SEX in the STREETS

when i was growing up i was explained to very clearly at home what was right and what was wrong of course there was no t.v. to blame anything on but even now on the internet i have seen some pretty raunchy things worse than someone having bra painted on and now the kids know if they do get pregnant all they have to do is go have it cut or sucked out there will be no consequences no new life to be responsible for

Christmas Jukebox

great list fay of course they did leave out a few (we three kings) (good king wenselas) and ( white christmas) but it was great anyway our acca pella choir used to sing the carol of the bells every christmas it was all boys about 60 of them the singers from the high school have been here the last several years they are pretty good of course i realize they don't have 2000 students to pick from my favorite was a group of seven giirls they called the stephen foster singers they wore formals like they wore in the 1850's all seven colors of the rainbow a couple of them wore black ribbons around their necks with a cameo in the middle they were the seven best girl singers in the school which left me out i did pretty well with the clairnet our trio got a first in the state but the cornet troupe had gotten a first at the regional the year before but when my time came it was 1941 no out of state travel the band was 100 the orchestra about 80 and they both got state firsts one girl here who visited me because she was doing a paper on the schools then and now said your school would have been classed a 4A. no one said we were but maybe they divided them diferent then

DR. SUESS IN FLORIDA

sorry all but i have been scared to death bush will get it that he will get in and give away our social security and i will be out in the cold i do not like a 300 vote majority out of millions that is an insult they say there was a time where a candidate carried all but two states but they were new england states and back in those times not many people would admit voting for a republican anyway i would be ashamed to win by 900 votes out of so many million I AM BUSH




Nov 19, 2000

PARYERS

hazel it hurts but keep moving them as much as you can concentratimg on opening and seperating them at least every four or five minutes it helps some to soak them in hot water if you don't they will contract into a fist and you won't even be able to open your hand besides in a few years it will quit hurting so bad mine aren't bad at all if i do them myself one at a time but if the therapist takes my hand and tries to open my hand all at once it's still uncomfortable but when it first happened i coudn't stand anyone to touch my thumb now i really wish i had done what the therapist had said at first and kept opening them and seperating them now they have to pry my hand open to wash the palm i didn't realise how much i depended on my left hand to do things till i lost it can you train the hand mine stays in my lap i like spagetti but if i try too eat it i look like i've been in a spagetti fight

PARYERS

Automated School Phone

that sounds about right when my girls went we had a break with the bus it would pass us turn the corner go about a mile up the road to pick up a family there then come back if they weren't ready the first time they had about five minutes till it came back but one time mary stalled around and wasn't ready when it came back then got really upset because i wouldn't take her




Nov 19, 2000

Automated School Phone

when i went to school there was no worry about busses the only ones that had the luxury were kids that lived in a suburb about 8 miles away the rest of us walked regardless of the weather as i remember we did have one saving grace you didn't hear them say the wind chill is so and so if it was 20 below it was 20 below period one time it was so cold my dad walked me to grade school when we got there there there was a little boy too little to get the door open my dad let him in then went up and bawled out the principal for not having boys from the higher grades watching the doors believe me after that they did of course dad and the principal had grown up in the same neighborhood i think even went to the saME GRADE SCHOOL so that's not as bad as it sounds

RIGHT OR LEFT

i am strictly right handed but i did not realise how much i used my left hand till lost it try to eat something like spagetti with nothing but one hand and no way to hold a piece of bread in your left hand when finish i look like i have been in a spagetti fight or try using the phone and writing something down i can't even open one of my pen now because i don't have any top teeth to help me hold it or even opening a straw or buttering a piece of bread My husband on the other hand was naturally left handed but his grandmother hit his hand with a ruler if she saw him using it so it turned him so the only things he did with his left hand was shoot and play golf




Nov 25, 2000

RIGHT OR LEFT

i told how my husbnds grandmothrer used to hit his hand if she caught him using his left hand i don't know if people do that so much any more but in medicine the word for left is sinister i doubt she knew that though if a dr. writes an order for a person to have drops in his left eye the order will read O.S. as i'm sure the nurses in this group know




Nov 25, 2000

RIGHT OR LEFT

i read a book by v.c.andrews she said in the cajun society if a person is left handed it meant she had healing powers




Nov 25, 2000

RIGHT OR LEFT

i lost the use of my left side because the stroke destroyed the right side of my brain one side controls the other i shouild count my blessings though i could have lost my power of speech i can't talk as well as i did though i found that out when the chaplin that comes every two weeks had me read some bible passages my tongue gets twisted when i try to talk aloud when i first fell i knew i couldn't call my husband because my mouth felt like it was full of mush he was only in the kitchen but i knew i couldn't make him hear me i thought oh well sooner or later he will come in when he did he said what's the matter i said i think i've had a stroke you'd bettrer call 911 so that's what he did i remember them putting me in the ambulance but that's the last i remembered for a month
