The Poor Woman's Almanack

- 6 Word Bio:
My life would shock most people. It is a little known fact that there are quite a number of those on the fringes who may not ever see relief. I am that one you never met, in that we are kept separate by way of societal demands that the poor remain silent, biddable, childlike nonentities without a say as to our care or how it's to be provided.
I tend to view things as a selfdisicplined person without advantages. If this won't set with some, then I guess they are not ready to remember who we are as one entity, governed by everyone inclusively. I will not cease to point out any diseased thinking I run across here in the USA.
****************************************** I stand in defense of the weakened, the brutally treated, the denied, the ones for whom life's trial can be too much. I stand with my thought, even when my legs are weakened, my stride not strong.
Walk with me on this journey, now, wherein we may ask each other: How much is the value of one person affected by what is generally assumed about them?
See me also at THE POOR WOMAN'S RETROACTIVE DIARY, (go to LINKS below, if you're interested) a commentary on the level of care I was allowed throughout my time seeking help.

Having just perused through some comments here at Open, I was shocked (and I mean shocked) by the haziness of the concept I recently offered by way of comments in the stream.
Don't you know me? Do you seriously mean to make me look like a stupid, daft ignoramus?
Here's… Read full post »
Okay. Now I'm mad enough to smash something messy. And it won't look good if I don't do something positive toward change of the right sort.
Slavery in America is alive and well. It did not end in our great grandparents' era.
These are complex issues, I'll grant you. They are… Read full post »

If I've been defamed, it's mainly been by members of my own family.
This thought came up earlier as I was resting between coughing bouts. (The latest virus to hit here finally got me, I guess. Not in a big enough way to incapacitate me, but… Read full post »
That's a question I like to ask myself at regular intervals.
How uninformed am I, personally?
It makes no sense to ever think of oneself as being thoroughly educated, as our real educated lives take time to mature into graceful allowing of differences (along with our own real selves coming into… Read full post »
Who could have foreseen that a cold war cartoon situation comedy for kids would end up the cult classic it's become? Today's Boomer era folk tend to see it as integral to growing up in the 50's and 60's. It would scandalize if being made for today's market--social change being what… Read full post »
Every post currently on the front cover was rewritten as something different?
In the normal, run-of-the-mill posting, when I change a post's title and/or content, the post remains in its place in the queue.
Tho' this process takes time to finally register feed-wise, it does finally happen.
It's… Read full post »
Just for fun, I thought it might be nice to be a total Boomer for a bit and enjoy some traditional childhood pastimes, like a toaster pastry and a funny old cartoon. Couldn't find exactly what I was looking for, altho' the offering below is cheekily funny.
Here's what I found… Read full post »
Nothing but chocolate today!
Are we the jilted boy/girlfriends who keep crying tears of the past? Are we the victims of casual tyranny? The bigger boat beckons, yet we avoid talking about the constitutional right to party!

Good morning, all!
Today is my day to celebrate having blogged alongside you now for 4 whole years. Makes you think, huh?
What have we been up to for the past 4 years? Well, it seems to me we have been discussing everything from soup to nuts and then some.
Here it is, the Monday after Super Bowl Sunday (SBS for brevity's sake), and I can't say I missed all that much, as neither team really ever interested me anymore. (yawn)
How about a movie or 3? I really wonder just how many of us would be interested in attending any… Read full post »
When I came here to copy+ paste the content from my OurS post, I found the OS editor acting flakey again. It simply would not function and gave me 3 fonts in 4 sizes and then went all squiggly on me. So, for anyone interested, here is that URL link:

Thoughts at Midwinter
Winter finds me home most days
Alone, in quiet mode.
I yearn to be freer, freed
The snow beckons me to frolic in drifts
To skate on ponds
To breathe crisp air that sends shivers of delight through me
To embrace the limits… Read full post »
Here's a little look at why I loved our parties 'way back when here on Open:

"There's that homeless guy again!"
The driver of the bus I was riding was upset, although he appeared to have good intentions. I had chosen a seat by the door, and was huddled there in my coat, watching the world advance towards me in jerks and starts through the windshield.
