    We'll meet at the bar

    Thought about posting this in the religious section but I feel more comfortable doing my ruminations in a loud bar with a friend next to and a drink in front of me. Even through the passing of my boyfriend my world view is unshook happy nihilism. In my opinion we only have the one life and...

    Family not helpful

    In another thread I explained that I didn’t think I’d be able to be enough support for my boyfriend who lives with his mom and sister. He and I have been together for 5 years but have been becoming a bit distant since my daughter died 7 months ago. I’ve been needing time to myself . But then...

    tech support

    Dear Tech Support, Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance -- particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0. In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other...
