Another good one Frank! Some of those people can sure move can't they? Great voice, great beat! I went back into the family farm business after 28 years with the same company, white collar stuff. Sure like being my own boss now! What do you do? Now I'm watching Crime ID tv. Some mean people in this world! Getting ready to call it a day.

Oh geez. I still remember that it was J8 on the jukebox when I was sneaking into a bar underage. I plunked some quarters down on that tune.

I remember in that same bar that all I wanted to do was play pool. I was pretty good. But there was one guy better than me. Sometimes he would play pool, but mostly he just wanted to sit at the bar and drink. At the time I couldn't understand why anyone would just want to drink.

Now I understand.

Pumpkins are cool.

Hokay folks, good conversation, which I hope continues without me. May be sleep time soon for me, or maybe not, I don't much sleep these days.. Hugs to Olivia, Nest, Shabby, Venecia, and all. And ((noexcuse))

I'll be here for awhile, maybe. If anyone wants to give me a goodnight hug.

Actually, this is the first time I've seen it, though I've heard it before. Thanks for sharing.

I'm rocking out to old Michael Jackson right now, hoping it will rock me to sleep.

Good to see you, Sadie.

I don't have a TV ( by choice) but whenever I go to someone's house I watch crime TV, probably because I study criminology, I love the shows haha.

Thats awesome you went back to the farm business! And pumpkins! I love pumpkins!!!

Pumpkins are underrated. A very versatile vegetable!

We watched 'Crumb" tonight........cool movie. Very sad that the brother committed suicide, particularly for the mother.

Everyone should read the above mentioned Nest post http://www.soberrecovery.com/forums/...ml#post5527487. (Top of the page) Brutally honest, which I guess is what we all need to be.

( And be warned Threaders, I lurk just about everyone who posts here.)

Wow, someone actually acted on a movie recommendation of mine. And synchronicity, I watched it again, too. On a VCR tape I had recorded and saved. Remember those, VCRs? I had forgotten that Crumb had a sexual attraction to Bugs Bunny. Geez, I thought I was strange.

Anyhoo, good 'morn to Venecia, Jsbodhi, Shabby, Cissy, Olivia, Sadie, Nest, Hevyn, Wolf, and all. I think my Cymbalta is doing it's chemical magic, feeling more sociable now, so will be checking back in.

Good mornin gang! Frank, you are sounding much better! Now if you could only sleep and eat! It will balance with time I think

Jsbohdi - crime novel and crime tv fascinate me too! Never studied it but always interested in it.

Pumpkins are really versatile and beautiful. The various assortment of pumpkins, gourds, squash etc are fab! Fall is such a great time too after the hot hot summer. Leaves changing colors, sweatshirts, hot apple cider, etc.

Have a great day everyone.

Olivia

Am I suppose to do both at the same time?

Apple cider . . . in my neck of the woods we have an apple called HoneyCrisp. Makes for great cider.

Love Honey Crisp. Glad u said that. I buy homegrown wonderful apples for my season. Will call her today about those. I also buy the best honey I've ever tasted!

I used to tell my mom.... EAT IT EVEN IF IT DOESNT TASTE GOOD! Splurge on anything you like made by someone that knows how to cook and EAT! maybe a Sominex or Melatonin to sleep.

Take care

I've tried various non-prescription sleep aids. Clinically tested! Didn't do any good. My Doc offered prescription sleep aids, but don't want to go down that road.

Venecia . . . in a (successful) effort at self-flagellation I am reading Part 1 of this thread and saw your recommendation for 'Lost Bloopers'. Cool, and thank you.
