***Check out this GA Classic***
Trevor, through little fault of his own, finds himself with few choices. Desperate and hunted, he decides that his best chance is to head out to sea on his boat, for a circumnavigation of the Earth. His boat, Atlantis, is a fifty-five foot cruising catamaran, bequeathed to him by his mother prior to her mysterious disappearance. Come along for the ride and explore with Trevor, as he discovers many things, not the least of which is himself.
Don't forget.... Read, Write, and REVIEW!!!
wonderful blog entry! tim, you may not be an "expert" but having dealt with so called diabetic experts for over 35 years now, i have found better information from other diabetics and their journeys in dealing with this insidious monster then any expert. i spent 20 years floating down a river of denial about being diagnosed. if i can change my eating habits (the worst was my addiction to coke-pop. 24+cans a day) than there is hope for others. it was hard. it took more than 6 months of not drinking for the craving to be gone. each must find what works best for them, but to be able to talk and share the roads is very helpful.
thank you for sharing things with us.
Growing up in NYC region was liberating for me, a gay teen male. It was my Drag friends who empowered me and gave me initial confidence. Huge for someone with social phobia. Allowed me more moments to be comfortable in my skin.
People are frightened by what they don’t understand. When I was first Coming Out, people in drag terrified me because they represented what I had been led to believe being Gay meant. It took me years of watching documentaries and actually talking to people who did drag just for fun and others who were Transwomen to understand that drag and Trans were no threat to me. ;-)
Bisexuality confused me more than scared me. It wasn’t something I experienced myself. But documentaries and talking to people whose behavior placed them somewhere between the ends of the Kinsey Scale helped me to understand the bisexuality better. I had a neighbor who identified as Lesbian but dated more men than I did! Another friend who identifies as Gay married his best friend (a woman) because they both wanted to have kids and they knew they were compatible in other ways – his friends mostly rejected him for his ‘betrayal,’ but he remained my friend regardless. Now, the ‘B’ in LGBTQ is not really an issue for me. ;-)
My father had been a conservative Protestant minister, Culturally and politically my parents were very conservative. They couldn’t publicly reject me for being Gay, but they did their very best to keep it a secret. My father had major surgery and had plenty of time to contemplate while he recovered. He realized that he would rather have me in his life than continue to let my being Gay drive us apart. It wasn’t that he ever accepted what he believed was my ‘choice’, more that he was going to overlook that ‘sin’ because his bible told him that it wasn’t his job to sit in judgement over me. ;-)
Some people will never change, but some of us just needed a little education! ;-)
I have Adobe Creative Cloud with my designers tools so I'm set. I can get things anywhere I need to if I log into Adobe. I also am thinking of expanding iCloud which works even more universally for all my Macs and auto-synchs.
first big hugs for you.we all crave the acceptance from our parents no matter what. it's painful when we find we don't have it. my bio-father sold me for the interest in a house and my mother was a narcissistic Rx drug addict, who became toxic in my life. until the day they died i held on to hope that the would love me. hold onto those in your life who love YOU, and let the rest slip away. (so easy to say, harder to do.)
This is the method I use - in combination with the day's date eg filenameFeb25a -then I change the 'a' to a 'b' for the next Save As, and so on. This way I know at a glance when a file was made and which is the most up to date.
