I had to write this column because lately a great deal of these born again christians have been trying to convert me.I dont believe in this.Never have and never will.I was taught by the Catholic Irish nuns 1954 to 1962.I graduated St.Annes..1962 at the age of 14.No matter what has happened..I will always be Catholic..but lately people have been crying to convert me and others.Cant we stop discussing religion? Why? Because in the state of Washington..we have got various religions..We have got Wicca,we have Pagan and we have got the organized religions.Now if anyone has noticed everytime something goes wrong..it is quoted as Gods Will? Well,excuse me! A drunk driver that kills a walking person is not Gods Will.Blame the drunk driver! And how about the vicitims of Ted Bundy? Is this Gods Will to have people murdered? Of course not! And what about these people who are on the tv screaming about the end of the world...telling people that Jesus is coming! Send them 20.00! Now these people do need God and they will get His Wrath.The Bible states that Jesus doesnt even know the hour of His Return..so if Jesus doesnt know the hour..how can these people? Because these people are making specific claims that has and will do a diservice to anyone who does believe in God.We are living in a wonderful time.We are living in a time where various diseases can be healed..where human life can be expended and where we can finally go to Mars.And what do I have? I have got Faith! My God is good and rational.What these people are teaching is irrational and this is what I have been dealing plus the death of my godfather.Can stop discussing religion? Can we just know that Our God is one of Peace...(because any of these armament races will wind up in the graveyard) and the love that we have got the honor to be His Children.He did not cause all of this schism.Man did.Only man can undo this.Only man can come to an understanding of what and who God really is..I have got faith.I intend to live a long life.A lady just made her 115th birthday and I intend to live this long.And I will do this by my faith...I believe.I do.I do believe in God...I do not rely of voodoo and magic nor do I rely on this silly possibiliy thinking.

I have been told I will have to find a new normal. Nothing is normal. Told that I am strong but I dont want to be strong. It has been 9 weeks since I lost the other half of my heart. My sweet Tony. We had no children and very little family so I am facing this alone. So how do I find a new normal other than just being alone 24/7
We are groomed from a young age to plan/prepare for retirement and yet I have heard of so many people dying immediately pre/post retirement. I'm feeling angry about this as Glenda and I had so many plans for retirement together that now can never come to fruition. I wonder if others feel ripped-off with the whole retirement persona that we are indoctrinated with from an early age.
