In-Country R&R in a Neutral Zone

During the Vietnam War U.S. military typically were sent for rest and relaxation (R&R) to some place away from the conflict like, Hawaii, the Philippines, Thailand or Australia.  I met my wife on Oahu about half way through my tour and then we took a short flight to Kauai where we spent a week next to a lagoon full of colorful fish and toured the island by car.  That happened in 1971, and it served as our honeymoon.  We…

“The Truth Matters”

 

Sometimes, it has been said, the cure is worse than the disease.  That may be true with the Trump presidency.  Can Trump be impeached without evidence of a crime?  What would be the effect of impeachment?  What constitutes a “high crime”, what a “misdemeanor”? 

What those who find Trump’s…

A Meditation for Any Day

Posted on April 18, 2019 at 3:11am 21 Comments

The following was copied from a Unitarian Universalist bulletin.  It expresses a concept that is often either denied, forgotten or never realized.  In today’s political divide over immigration it seems important to realize that many of those we will never know who helped enhance our lives are and were immigrants who took jobs beneath their ability in order to enjoy life here.  Some slaves, and the children of slaves, built buildings and roads and created works of art for which they got no…

A Patient's View of Fighting Cancer

Posted on April 16, 2019 at 4:32am 8 Comments

I’ve been retired for 14 years.  A lot has happened in medicine since then, apparently.

My latest go round with my cancer resulted in surgery, ‘radiosurgery” and now I am getting immunotherapy.  The last is something that has come on since I was practicing; at least as a main-line therapy.  I’m still not sure how it works.  I’m getting something called a checkpoint inhibitor.  The immune system is complicated.  Like the blood coagulation system it appears to be like Topsy, it just…

Rodney, I don't quite understand who all can read a  comment wall.  I'm glad we friended just in case you ever want to comment on my posts because I have had to limit comments on my posts to friends because there are some non-friends here who cannot respect my notice to them that they refrain from commenting in my posts' comment section and i will not not comment in theirs.

And oddly I cannot at moment find your comment to me to which I am now responding.  Anyway, I'm no longer young in body either, though not too much vision impaired yet, I make plenty of typos and ommissions.  I had thought we were already friended but when I went to msg you, saw we weren't.  

I wanted to bring this sentence you wrote in "Something Happening  .." to your attention thinking perhaps spell check had put in a word you didn't intend.

"Flake joins a growing number of Republicans voiding (voicing?) outspoken opposition to Trump."

That's as far I got reading the post so far, will read later in evening.  I like how you write and usually what you write about.  I too am a science major, chemistry and taught high school biology, chemistry, physical and ag sciences.  I sort of minored in philosophy and religion and though went through college without ever taking a history course, have since for decades been enchanted with such.  I'm not a mediator I'm pretty sure, especially when it comes to politics, and, when it comes to economics i'm no fan of capitalism, Wall Street or land speculation.

Thanks for your reply, see you in the line up, 

mokii

(the name moki ikom has no meaning that i know of other than what one may make of it, but i've used it in some form or another for many years on line,, i do know someone named moki and that's how it started for me)

Rodney, that "Pushback" can be hell. While at Marylhurst many decades ago, I studied Change Agentry, which gave me a systemic appreciation of why all our social agitation work was far more struggle than accomplishment...and always will be ;-)

Rodney, thanks for your invite.  I appreciate your ability to think in terms of the systems and apparatus that we rely upon to function. When its all said and done, it IS the system where our new insights have to be applied. I look forward to learning and sharing. mvn

I just posted and tried to implant a link. Hope I made it work correctly. Ah, scrolling above, I don't think I did. Next time!

As to your question, yes, I spoke at the Eugene/Springfield UU. Twice, in fact. Once on military issues and another time on UU'ism - a two-fold path. What's your association?

Thanks, Rodney....once question, is there a way to contact your friends on here without leaving a public comment?  Lots to get used to ...

There's a party going on with tunes, flicks, and chat here and at Open Salon! Help us build it out of  the ashes which O.S. machinery created with slow loads, etc.? We'd love to have you.

I'm not sure why you arent seeing the 'forgot password' option on sign in.  Try this link:  

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/signIn?target=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2F

just below the "sign in" button you should see a link for "i forgot my password"

if the link doesnt appear there, try this one:

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/requestPasswordReset?previousUrl=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2Fmain%2Fauthorization%2FsignIn%3Ftarget%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Foursalon.ning.com%252F

if none of this works, please let me know and i will make inquiries about it.  Also, sorry for the delay in responding.

thanks,

lorianne
