"Sounds like a catch-22 to me. If you don't want people coming in and finding the money hidden in your house, you need the chain and posts. But if you get the chain and posts, you won't have the money. "

Dad Taught Me Well

My girls and I had just moved into a new house and I was in the back yard building a sandbox. Our neighbor, a father of six, walked over to see if I needed help."I think I've got it," I said, as I dragged the last 2 by 12 into place.He watched as I hammered away and said words I still remember."Your dad taught you well."I stood back to admire my finished product and agreed.Although it wasn't Dad who taught me how to wield a hammer. That's something I taught myself. Dad wasn't all that…See More

"Wonderful father. (I asked my dad to help me when I had to change the thermostat in my car and was apprehensive. Surprise surprise - dad had always been a bit of a handyman but not at this - I ended up leading the project.)"

Dreams of Our Mothers

Posted on May 8, 2016 at 7:05am 10 Comments

My mom dreamed of being a journalist. She skipped 4th grade, was a straight-A student, and undoubtedly would have excelled at college.

But she didn't go. Her dad would pay only if she went to a teacher's college.

In the days before student loans were readily available, she bypassed college, left her small rural hometown, and got a job working as a secretary in Springfield,…

The Lady on the Corner

Posted on February 24, 2016 at 10:03am 16 Comments

I see her every Tuesday and Thursday when I take my grandson to soccer practice. She stands on the corner waiting for the light to change so she can pass through the line of stopped cars offering candies from a small basket that she holds close to her chest.

The street is a side one, with only one full lane of traffic, and the line of cars is never long. Perhaps six or seven. Short enough that she reaches the end and…

Eye Floaters and Yellow Plants

Posted on February 4, 2016 at 12:08pm 15 Comments

Sometimes I have little floaters in my eyes--those tiny black specks that flit around in your field of vision only to dart away when you shift your eyes to look at them. And sometimes I have little black gnats that fly in aimless circles around my head and across my line of sight. Both are irritating.

But that's not the problem. The problem is knowing which ones…

Welcome!

With any new site, we understand that finding your way around can be a bit daunting. To help you use our site, we have a few resources and tips, all of which can be found on pages under the ABOUT tab in your top menu bar. They are:

FAQ- here you can find some quick answers to general questions, questions about privacy and about site features.

Site News, Tips & Tricks - this is our forum where you can find tips on using the site, news about site changes and other information from the staff and other members.

Our Terms Of Service and Our Copyright Policy can also be found under the ABOUT tab.

You may also find additional help by going to chat and asking another member. Chat can be found in 2 place: There is a CHAT link in your top menu which will open chat in your browser.

The other option for opening chat is to use the small tabs at the bottom of most pages. The tab named "Opium Den" (our chat name) will open the in a small pop up window at the bottom of the screen. This window can also be resized or 'popped-out' and used as a separate window.

There is a "Members Online" tab on the bottom of your page too. This will show which other members are logged in (logged in does not mean they are active in the chat, simply they are logged in to the site). There is a small speaker icon which will allow you to adjust the chat beeps which many prefer to turn off or down when not actively chatting.

We have many excellent features and tools here. While it may seem overwhelming at first, the basics of posting and commenting are simple and before too long we hope you will feel comfortable and at home.

Bang around, explore, write, comment and most of all have fun!
