Marle thatnks for posting the link. I really liked seeing all those photos. I know I never went to that theme park, and I can't recall hearing about it before. If I did, it went one ear and out the other, way back then, or way back when.
I'm not the kind of person who would let differing views and beliefs about the election, and other things, ruin a friendship or relatinship.
But, there are some people who are so vehement in their beliefs about such things, that if I were to give my views, I could very well loose a friend of a relationship, and with a person as socially isolated as I am, I need all the friends and relationships that I can get.
So, I basiclaly keep my mouth shut, and follow the old saying of the Masonic rule that Politics and Religion are not to be discussed in their meetings.
That saying has gotten into the profane Non-Masonic Public At Large, and is also the rule with groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, and many individuals.
I listened to the Presidential debate on the radio, for awhile, and just got too tired of it, so I didn't stick with it to the end.

Did anyone else forget it was Mother's Day on Sunday (UK)?
You see, I can't buy her chocolates, because she doesn't like chocolates. I can't buy her a gift voucher because I just got her one for Christmas. I can't buy her money because I got her some for her birthday just gone. I can't buy her a teddy bear because that's what I usually get her for Easter in a few weeks. And I can't get her flowers because she'd see them since she's at home most of the time, and I can't order them because I don't have a credit card, and... it's too late anyway.
I know I'll get her a card but I can't just get her a card.
Booze (wine) was high up on my list but I'm not sure if that's a 'normal' Mother's Day gift. Then I considered Australian dollars as mum and dad are going to Australia for a month, soon. But again, not very 'Mother's Day.' Then I considered a candle, but that's a terrible gift. And she's not really into fancy smelling stuff like perfume. And she doesn't wear jewellery. Then I remembered she likes jigsaws, but she does them with dad, so not really 'Mother's Day.'
Then I decided to come here and beg for help.
You have 12 hours...
I think I got her a voucher last year, but she only likes one shop and she might think it's not very original.
Are you saying no one greeted you for 26 years? or that you're eating your cake alone for 26 years? How about your family when you were younger?
If i don't count family and only count friends or acquaintances, i think i might have experienced not having other people greet me for a period of time as well. It does feel sad when you think or dwell upon it.
At present, there are at least 2 people who greets me on my birthday. One is a friend i knew during high school. The other one is someone i got to know much later on.
I definitely appreciate them greeting me, so i usually greet them back when its their birthday as well.
If you have someone you can greet a Happy Birthday, i'm sure they'll appreciate it too and maybe greet you back as well.
Though i definitely know how hard it can be to find friends to greet in the first place.
Doing and saying the wrong things most of the time 24/7. Being me means having to endure people not liking me.
