Youth is the Prompt for Today

The elderly people at the Daily Post division of Word Press would like us to create works of art to symbolize what the word “Youth” means to you.

Learning by Making Mistakes

Made tons of errors in my younger days.  Still make mistakes even today, but I never make the ones twice!  Guess that is what they mean by the wisdom of the older generations.  Yeah, they made mistakes but hopefully learned from their follies!

If you want to get in touch with me personally, all you have to do is fill out the form below:

I will read each and every one of the comments I receive!

What really tends to be annoying is all the fun I had making those mistakes back in my younger days.  Remember working all lot on the farm, but in my few hours off had a blast with my friends from town!  Would drag them with me to help out in chores occasionally, but they rarely could hold up against my work load for long.  Didn’t get my actual driver’s licence until I was over 16 years old, but drove on public roads after the age of 14.  Drove on farm property starting at the wise old age of 12 (was so short had to use blocks on the brake and gas pedals)!

What stupid things did you engage in while growing up?

There was the One Single Time

At the end of my Junior year of High school, when I drank a part of a can of beer at a senior’s graduation party.  Tasted nasty!  But unfortunately did not keep me from getting hooked on drinking harder liquors when I entered college.

Please Help Fight Hideous Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. If you would like to contribute to my fight against this mind stealing disease, please contribute by visiting  my personal website at http://saintpblogging.com/wp/ and seeing the copies of my writings located there!

Prompt for the day: “Conceal”

The secretive people at the Daily Post group of Word Press chose “Conceal” as the prompt for today’s work.

How to Hide Something

Most people think the only things that are concealed tend to be weapons.  What about the young people who hide alcohol from adults or even the condoms before their upcoming date?  Hackers hide their ability to compromise your system through a free program.  Think twice before downloading software without some sort of firewall to protect your equipment.

Hackers hide their ability to compromise your system through a free program.  Think twice before downloading software without some sort of firewall to protect your equipment.  You’d be surprised what is concealed by offering a FREE product.

How else do the illegal drugs enter our country? There was a raid of hidden cocaine coming from a foreign country that prevented several tons from reaching our citizens.  Some are actually manufactured here in the states.  That is why there are restrictions on certain over the counter medicines that fight colds and headaches.

The scariest type of hiding or concealing is hiding a dead body!  If you are planning on committing a murder, the most important thing to plan is how to dispose of the body,

Prompt for the Day: “Saved by the Bell”

The prompt for the day created by a group of writers who apparently remember the old television show “Saved by the Bell“.  They also gave us some fodder to write about “Tell us about a time when you managed to extract yourself from a sticky situation at the very last minute.”.

Growing up, was not a child who got into any trouble at school.  Since I loved going to school, tried to be as early as physically possible to classes each day.  Relied on the bus to get me to and from school each day.  Had no ability to speed up the over hour long ride each way.  Lived out in the middle of nowhere, heading to a tiny town’s school also in the middle of a vast wasteland in southern Illinois.  To get out of that utter waste of existence, had to escape to a college out of state!

There I started living in a dormitory, where I had to find my way to the different classes without getting lost.  For the first time in my life, barely made it on time to my classes!  Getting lost for the first couple of weeks was a regular event for me.  Got to make new friends who helped me learn my way around the campus environment.  Some of them would become my drinking buddies, even though I was only 17!   By Labor Day of my sophomore year, I had a full fledged alcohol problem.  Forced myself to quit cold turkey over the extended weekend.  Went through the alcohol detoxification all alone!   Don’t know which was worse, the shakes or the vomiting.  Glad there was no one else in the dorm that needed the bathroom while I was worshiping the porcelain Gods!  Lost weight, if nothing else.

My roommates  returned home to find an exhausted, but sober individual.  My programming skills deteriorated now that I was no longer drunk all the time.  Who would have known that I crafted my best programs while drunk off my ass?
