    If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    9:17am here in Calgary. I have been laid off again so am trying to keep my chin up and not get too bummed out. My last job was a bit of a soul sucker, I worked my ass off but always had a feeling in the pit of my stomach that I was not doing enough, ugh. I don't want a job like that again.
    I may try something in the non profit sector, I am a real people person so maybe something to do with dealing with people everyday instead of spreadsheets.

    Anyway, nice to drop in to the coffee shop. Please give me another 24.

    Quit winning- looks like we are neighbours. That is cool.

    Quitting and staying quit isnít easy, itís learning a whole new way of thinking. Itís accepting a new way of life, and not just accepting it, embracing it...
    Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Just get through today. Tomorrow will look after itself when it becomes today, because today is all we have to think about.
    Friendship is not about how many friends you have or who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said "I'm here for you", and proved it.

    Boy, I can sure relate to what Mr King said @Jude58! What's the point of drinking if not to get drunk! I'm sure at some point drinking was fun for me, but all I remember was the need to get the buzz on...

    Just one more day @Slo and the moon ends it's full stage. A bit of trivia for you all, the moon reaches it's full stage this month on 12/12 at 12:12am! Funny numbers eh!

    Great to see you here @narilly! Chin up is the way to go!

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    That’s good that you really like your volunteer job at the coffee shop, Dill! But, one day a week of that is enough I imagine because of the early hours.

    That must make it easier to get together with a former drinking buddy if you both have quit, like you & your BIL, QW. My British ex SIL was my big drinking buddy, so I avoided getting together much with her during the years that I was struggling to quit, even though I enjoy her company, and now she has moved away. And even now I am reticent to go visit her, since drinking and wine are so important to her. It could be awkward.

    Hi, Narilly! Your cold Canadian air has reached us now. I had a cold walk with Tucker yesterday when it was 17F/-8C, but with a wind chill factor of 3F/16C. Today is forecast to be “frigid”.
    It used to tend to be fun to go work when we were first in the workforce in the 80s, but now many jobs just suck.

    The full moon is on 12/12 at 12:12am?! That is a fun fact! Asking for 24 more hours to get me past the full moon!

    Speaking of the moon. This was taken evening before last. We look at this beautiful mountain from our RV.

    I must admit I've been pretty punky the last few days. Now I'm wondering if this is why or am I just homesick for holidays with my babies. Hmmmm

    Hi, Nar! Good to see you. Sorry about the job.

    I'll take another 24, please and thank you!

    Good to see you here at the cafe Narilly! Sorry about the job situation, but as the saying goes, when one door closes, another one opens up!

    That is breathtaking, Ginger! What a view!

    When do you go back to work, Jude?

    No, a doctor didn’t diagnose me with vitamin A overload, @paulywogg -although hypervitaminosis A is a medical condition. It’s cutting-edge understanding uncovered by Grant Genereux in Canada, and being further explored by Garrett Smith in Arizona USA, that a lot of us are over-saturated nowadays thanks to Accutane, the diets super high in beta-carotene that are being pushed on us, skin care products with retinol in them, diets that emphasize a lot tomato products & cheese, and the supplementing of our food with vitamin A (in the US it’s added into our flour products, like cereal, and into our low-fat dairy). I don’t have to look any further than the carrot juice and barley green powder diet that I followed once when in my 30s until I turned orange, to know that I’m affected!
    At least I figured out why my hair was falling out! I blamed it on alcoholism, which scared me enough to spur me on to my final quit; but that wasn’t actually it.

    As far as all the alcohol advertising on TV, I guess they all just have to compete with one another to get their market share, and make their brand the favorite.

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    Awesome photo Ginger! A few years ago we vacationed in Sedona, AZ and were so impressed with the rock formations, I took over 200 pictures on a 3 hour Pink Jeep heritage tour of the area. I wish I had captured a scene as beautiful as the one you did.

    Slo, it’s because of the numerous (and unneeded?) additives in our food that we bake our own bread and cook meals from scratch with ingredients purchased from reliable sources. No processed foods, no fast food and very few restaurant meals. Although there are no scientific links to tie food additives to Parkinson's, we wonder if that hasn’t contributed to Mrs QW’s illness.

    Have a great af Wednesday everyone!
