First World Problems



                                                                     First World Problems

                                                                                           - BlancheNoE

   I’m here to talk about a very serious medical issue that effects thousands, possibly millions of married couples worldwide. I call it Jealous Colon. That’s right, I’m going to go there. I am of an age that I am allowed, if not expected to talk of such things.

On mourning a public figure

It’s an odd thing to mourn the passing of a public figure. I’m not referring to the “saddened to learn of their passing” kind of sentiment, but the kicked-in-the-gut misery of grief that’s usually reserved for the loss of those we knew and loved. It seems somehow inappropriate to truly grieve for people we didn’t know—but knew of. There really isn’t a name for this variety of grief nor any social convention for comforting those experiencing it.

I’ve been deeply mourning the…

What I Miss About Having a Dying Dog

1) Never worrying that spoiling him rotten with all of his favorite treats will be bad for him.

2) Having someone to eat up all the cheese, cookies and ice cream in the house so that I won’t be tempted by them.

3) Being able to say to him every morning, “I love waking up to your sweet, kind, beautiful face.” Because every extra morning with him was such a gift.

4) Having a…

Homeward Through the Haze

I live 70 miles south of where the fires are blazing in Sonoma County this week. Today I drove to a hillside a mile away from my house and took pictures of the air. The air quality is rated as dangerous. I will not take Buddy for a walk in it and he has cabin fever. I do too, now that I think of it.…

A suspended member is asking why they were suspended.

I think this was the same user from Vloggerheads named Phantom Vision, but I can't be sure.   If anyone has knowledge as to what lead to a suspension on the Ark, please message me.   It is a question asked to which I don't have an answer.

Thanks

Got to keep on moving.

I sprained my knee last week, the knee that doesn’t have any cartilage in it anymore and that no longer completely bends or completely straightens out. Seriously, devastatingly crunched it, my leg folding like a jackknife as I fell straight down on it.
 
It’s been hard to walk since then. I conserve all my steps, saving up…

Crack epidemic of the 20-Teens

Completely, utterly, addictively, excruciatingly delicious.

Yeah, that's right. I bought the "share" size and didn't share with anyone. Get your own, people, get your…

Perfect.

Buddy and I spent some time at the beach today. Cloudy, rainy, glorious. Take no minute for granted.

The Man Who Helped Save the World, One Blanche at a Time

Dr. Thomas Starzl, the doctor who performed the first liver transplant and made great advancements in the treatment of organ rejection, died this weekend at the age of 90. I admit I had never heard of him before, but now that I have, I offer him a salute of thanks. His family stated that even with his monumental achievements in medicine, he should best be remembered as a teacher and a friend.

So thank you, my friend I never met, for saving my other friend, BlancheNoE. Good…

Bring on the Häagen-Dazs

Several years ago an elderly friend of mine told me that if she were ever to be diagnosed with a terminal illness, she was going to dump every food in her house and stock the freezer with her favorite food, Eskimo Pies.  I promised her that I and her daughters would cooperate. (Fortunately, her final illness was quick, no time to stock the freezer, which she said was okay, she was ready to go.)

 

About two and a half years ago, one month after I adopted my foster dog Buddy, I…

Ughh ...

Where's Syd with her "Fear" philosophy when you need her ?  

That is all ...

Confirmed...

I am still seeing some issues with The Ark regarding permissions.   It would appear NIng is still buggy since migrating some of there server info.   So sorry guys.   You may notice that not logging into the Ark may get you a slightly different experience than being logged in.   This is not by Syd's  design, and I have not altered any permissions or setting from the way Syd set up the Ark. I promise you.

Let me know of any issues that really hinder your ability to share on this…

Real quick question.

Hi all.

We had a video and comments go missing recently.   Anyone know anything about it?   Just trying to determine if there are site issues in the code, or just some fat fingering.

Stay warm and toasty mis amigos.

Let's kick 2017 off with some new videos.   :-)
