By now most of you probably know, one of our fellow myLotters, @asylum has passed away. He was diagnosed with cancer last summer and bravely battled it with great concern for those who might be distressed about it. He was a...

LilyLoretta I didn't know about this until just now
Moms--What would you do if I did to your daughter what I did to this little girl today? (And a sincere question)

In Northern California, people generally ignore those around them. But that's not the case with the littlies, who have not yet been socialized to be un-curious. About an hour ago as I stood in line at Kaiser to pick up my...

LilyLoretta I'd be laughing along from the start because I would have been making my son laugh and/or talking to him before you were. I love it when he starts communicating and laughing with someone on the bus, and I feel sorry for the people who ignore him and don't even...

Not because it really matters. After all, this isn't anything that is going to solve the miseries of the world, or end hunger, or stop war, or anything important. But it is a nice simple topic that even vegetarians can reply to....

LilyLoretta In Hull we put chip spice on our French fries (it's called American Chip Spice but I don't know if it's actually American) and salt and vinegar on our fish and chips - the chips you get with fish and chips are of course an entirely different ball game when...

The discussion was from 2007 and had no responses. The user hadn't been active since 2012. But I responded anyway...just in case. And believe it or not, the user still had the same email address and commented...

I have some reservations about posting this, because I feel like I'm going to jinx myself... but here goes anyway. I've been living with fibromyalgia since late 2011. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, it's a disorder...

I was able to connect with Patsie's son Robbie on Facebook. I asked him to tell her we all miss her. I also asked about her condition. I am sharing this information with his permission. He told me that she fell, and cut her...

I have been trying to drink more of those plant based milk alternatives like coconut and almond because they are better for you supposedly anyway, and I do think they probably are, but one think is they are terrible in coffee,...

Hello! I'm kind of a bookworm. And it's really sad to know that many people especially the younger ones are not reading enough books anymore. I'm not talking about just the ones being used in school but books in general. I...

Although I have moved to different locations within the UK I was born here and have never lived anywhere else. Some people travel around and decide to relocate to another country for various reasons maybe for work or for a...

I'm not going into whether or not Jesus existed, or if He was the Son of God, or if He was God in human form, or any of that. Y'all can believe whatever you want, I'm not going to say anyone is wrong. I'm just hung up on the...

In grades 6, 7, and 8, we brought our lunches to school in lunch sacks made of brown paper. Now, my mother always wrapped the sandwich she made for my lunch in aluminum foil. Being the only kid at our lunch table who had a...

This is an interesting story and one that sort of confirms that people who don’t drink at all are doing alright for themselves. Well, I enjoy the occasional glass of wine and beer sometimes but I never go over the limit anymore so...

I have made a conscious decision to stay away from topics like religion (especially religion), politics and any other discussions that might cause arguments. MyLot is a really nice place to post .. until one of these subjects...

LilyLoretta I avoid controversial subjects now, I'm not knowledgeable enough to really discuss these things properly and often it just stresses me out because some people are so set in their ways and will argue their side to the bitter end regardless of whether or not...

My granddaughter is 11 and pressing me to get her ears pierced. I'm not sure if she is still too young as I am worried they will get infected. I know lots of children and babies have it done with no problems but I would like her...

LilyLoretta It's not age that makes piercings go bad, it's poor care, so as long as you make sure she's going to be responsible and you also take responsibility yourself (as she's a child) then it will be fine. If you keep them clean and leave them in for the recommended...

This winter has taken a toll on my hands. They are so dry and chapped I don't know what to do. I've tried the old remedy of using Vaseline at night and putting my hands in socks but it still seems my hands are rough and dry. Do...

I'd rather have seen him locked up for 50 years. Lee Kennedy shot his ex-wife 4 times, his 13 year-old daughter once, and a man that tried to intervene twice. He fled the scene, and then attempted to rob a place later that day,...

We find comfort in being who we are. Then out of the blue we are hit between the eyes about some remark that portrays us in bad light. It is natural to feel hurt even if there is no truth in what is said. We are sensitive to...

LilyLoretta It depends who it is that's doing it, I suppose. If a stranger or acquaintance did this to me then I'd pretend that I didn't care, but inside I would be stressed about it simply because it's a form of confrontation and I don't like confrontation. If a friend...
