    Maybe I have this all wrong. Is anyone else out there just having blast like me?

    Things are great here. Healthy happy family. Troubles with finances that are so normal? Fully diversified community, Mixed race family. So I got a little cancer, big whooped di do! Sunsets and sunrises. A knee went out on me. We cooked a great dinner. We are crazy environmentalists. We like our gov. reps. Homelessness bothers us so we take action. We sing songs together. We love Jesus. We love family, neighbors and even enemies.
    Are we doing something wrong? Is happy the new bad? Fresh tomatoes from our garden tomorrow and roses for the lady. Am I missing a misery index? Giggle for bed. Love!

      Frank I have missed you. But that works out as hearing from you again is another blessing. We are cutting paper snowflakes today and that is super fun.

    Hi Eric, some days are more of a blast than others. This week not so much. I tried to be positive, it's not always possible. It's like the joke, The optimist said the glass was half full.  The pessimist said its half empty. I walked over and drank the water, I am a realist. Hope you have a great weekend. It good that you have so much good going on. sorry to hear you have cancer. I have many families living with and have passed from it. The good thing is treatment is way more successful then it used to be. The frost caused us to harvest all of our gardens already. We also had our first snow. My thought is when I look at my life it could always be worse and I am grateful for what we have. Some days just aren't as easy as others, but we get through. Life goes on, love!

      Terrie, I hope you know some pleasure in this; Your comment brought some good to me. Maybe that is the truest gift. Even if it is just a wave, somehow acknowledgement of another is what the doctor ordered. Thanks

      I feel you have a beautiful spirit, even if people don't see it sometimes. A positive person is contagious. I wish you well and hope everything goes well. I am sending positive vibes and warm wishes your way.

      I say no, a realist say it is half full of one substance and completed with air. You are just thirsty. LOL There are many cures for most illnesses but little money can is earned from healing. Doctors keep pill producers earning money for their cut.

    Well, Eric, When I flock your feathers I am having a blast. LOL

    Really? Yes, I'm having a blast, when I meet someone who is open to alternative views I have heard some people say "that is too much wisdom for me" I really am. I find some among all ethnics who are seeking something other than what they have been taught and I have found nothing more satisfying than to know I assisted someone to see the 360 degree view of something.

    Peace.

      Elijah some do say a seer. I poo poo such a notion  I only care for seekers. it is an active account. If one can see then they are not doing. They stop doing.

      Seeing without doing is getting the wisdom of life and not sharing it, it stagnates and serves no purpose.

      For cancer ear raw dark green vegetables abstaining from animal fat, milk and Iodine salt while using raw nuts and fruit as supplements.

      Elijah that kind of eating is a blast. Oh I cheat but I do real good mostly. Fresh greeny salads and bowls of fruits and nuts are awesome. I am not sure about no Iodine - so only a little. We get all the good stuff fresh here always.

      For salt use the pink or sea salt, they have not been purified nor idolized. The main keys are DARK green vegetables and abstaining from all animal fats and processed salt and sugars, the processing removes our body's protecting nourishments.

    You have such a great philosophy Eric.  I'm having a blast too.  Life throws its various troubles our way but I have family, friends and a great life in a great place.  What more could I ask for?
    It's easy to moan but not so easy to say, 'Hey that was great and so are you.  Thanks for treating me so well.  Thanks for the good service.  Thanks for bothering to smile at me....'
    You are part of having a blast on HP, Eric.  You and my other friends that I value so highly.  Thank you for being you, thanks for helping my life to be good with your inspiring words.
    Great question!
    Ann

      Ann it ain't good here. I have to budget for a telescope and a microscope. That whole deal with moths versus butterflies and chlorophyll. And saying planets versus stars now needs to be backed up. Can you imagine? Not what good food but how much.
