Thanks to all of you for all your help and support as I go through these trying times and herculean challenges  that I'm facing.  I promise that I'll try very hard not to be a crashing bore AND I hope someone  tells me should I reach that horrible status.

* With yesterday's problem I realized how long it's been since I made any changes here and guess what?  I'm going to leave well enough alone.

* Quitting smoking is hard because you really are changing your life around and one doesn't realize how much space it takes in your life.  I've been planning this for a long time.  I even have -- like Bill Maher --
New Rules!!!!!   The most recent addition is :  you cannot smoke in your car: another is that chocolate is NOT  a substitute for smoking.  I'm going to quit smoking without gaining fifty pounds,  It's damned stupid to swap one addiction for another.

* Here's an interesting take on being a liberal . . . it works for me!!!!

And this lady shares my message to Obama . . .


And here's Bernie on the CPI:  

Gotta go get some work done!!!!!!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!



  1. You seem to be on an upswing---so pleased for you.

  2. I don't believe it, I agree with Bernie on TWO items -- 1) the c.p.i. actually UNDERESTIMATES the impact of inflation on seniors; and 2) If we just got rid of the earnings cap for paying Social Security taxes, it would go a long way toward solving the long-term financial conundrum. Fight on Kay!

  3. Great pictures, and I wouldn't change much right now if I were you, sounds like you've got enough on your plate while making a really postive change for yourself. Good going.

  4. Great posters and Bernie video. And now a couple of questions: quit smoking and chocolate at the SAME time? I don't think so. I'm with Celia: don't pile up the virtue, Kay. Though it was many, many years ago, I can still recall how much focus quitting smoking required. It's a real one-day-at-a-time process. Hope your Blogger problems taken care of.

  5. Oh, yes, indeed, making a major change is complicated especially something that has become habitual. You don't realize how the tentacles of habit have sunk into your psyche until you try to pull them out. You were smart to plan on your change. And also smart to recognize the possibility of exchanging one addiction for another. Forewarned is forearmed they say. Keep up the good work.

  6. Hooray for you. I quit smoking in October. Except for a brief ten year period I've been puffing away for over 50 years. Stick with the plan - it does get better.

  7. I'm right behind you on all of this! Keep going, Kay! You CAN do this!

  8. I have quit smoking a million times
    for a day
    the only time I didn't smoke was when I was pregnant, guess that's out of the question at this stage ;)

    good luck, hugs
