@Mapleleaf,
Mapleleaf, I found my summer love from almost 30 years ago on Facebook. He was surprised that I'm not a teenager anymore Laughing

@Mapleleaf,
Mapleleaf - you're right.
The news on water is not good. Most of our population lives on the rim of the coast - but even there - water is very scarce. In Sydney we've had a whole lot of rain - but it's very coastal. The water catchment areas, less than 50 miles inland, aren't getting anything much and it's been this way for years. Melbourne and Adelaide are much worse off.

Australia's economy is pretty diverse - much as in US, but with about 21 million people, so on a significantly smaller scale. And a lot fewer gun nuts! The country is roughly the same size as mainland US, though - and pretty empty in the interior.

We have a comfortable life, though, mostly. Freely available healthcare is the big difference from US. When we read of the health problems of A2K-ers without health insurance we just cringe. It's so hard to imagine such a wealthy country with such a health system as you have for the not-so-well-off.

@husker,
Hello Husk,
Didn't mean to skip you...actually, it's good to read your type. The last time I followed your writings, you were fighting to stay up at the plate. What's your status?

Apparently, I need to reeducate myself re the proper use of the newly designed (for me) able2know.

My daughter and husband just returned from Seattle. They are scouting potential jobs/living areas. Anyone want to brag on their town? Employer?

@Mapleleaf,
Mapleleaf! great to see you posting again.

A quick review of my diary would tell you that I'm working, happy with my little old dogs and still taking belly dance classes.

@msolga,
Comforting to read your voices...you know, I do hear voices. Do You Question

I recently came across an aging posting re Abuzz. I have fond memories of those early days...since then, so much has happened...yet, so many of you are still here.

I visited ehbeth's page. O my God, what an array of information. The new able2know design has set you free.

@Mapleleaf,
I do hear some poster's voices. Oddly (it seems to me), I am mostly likely to 'hear' the voices of people I haven't actually met.

Odd.

Indeed, yes, Mapleleaf!
There are some posters here whose distinct voices I "hear" every time I read their posts.
I'm not certain I have their accents 100% correct, though! Wink

Momentous week in the Mapleleaf family. Grandma and Grandpa Bear bought a new latex mattress. Now we'll see whether I sleep in one place at night or continue the couch #1, couch #2, chair, and bed rotation.

@dlowan,
Dear Diary,

Packing and paper work is driving me nuts.

How did I ever accumulate so much stuff? And How did so many people/companies have my address?
