bullies
Posted: 9/19/2017 5:11:37 PM
I am surprised that this topic has such little traffic here.

Bullying is a tremendous problem.

The same good employee can change over night if given power. Abe Lincoln said it best when he wrote that "Most men can stand adversity but you see the real character when you give a man power." (this is the essence of Abe's wisdom but not exact words.)

I am a teacher and it is disrutptive to learning when teachers use their position to intimidate students--- aka bullying them. I work with adult students and the professors, at times, behave as if the student is a bother, is not stuyding enough, etc.

Violent outburts & family member
Posted: 2/13/2017 12:12:11 PM
Please offer wise words:

My son is marrying a woman who has violent outburts- my son has paid 5 years for her therapy.

Her former life, before my son, includes multiples marriages (which I do not condem as I think its great that she tried so many times) but her violence worries me.

Everyone in the family (-- our family is global from Bangkok to Beruit to Birmingham) has uttered shock. My son told relatives that he thinks marriage will calm her.

POFers--- I need support here. My friends have suggest Alanon & I am going.

If you have experience with maladaptive family members, how did you accept this?

Family Murder Suicides
Posted: 2/12/2017 4:45:32 PM
The most dangerous time for murder or harm is when the victim is leaving the relationship.

This is per reseach.

When my son in law told his business partner that he was leaving the business, the partner killed him. Then committed suicide.

This scenario is seen in many events where one person wants to leave or end a relationship.

Violence and murder is not caused by courts.

Before leaving a situation, the person leaving should research this information. There are safer ways to leave.

WE ARE BROKEN hearted over the loss of my wonderful son in law. My young dtr was a widow at 30 years old. SO SAD.

Dating in your 70s
Posted: 12/14/2016 4:07:36 PM
I asked my 88 year old Aunt "When will I tire of dating?

She answered with "I'm not tired yet."

BTW- Four months ago I cautiously met a former military and police officer who I met online. So far so good.

I have no advice except that it feels comfortable as we go camping, spend time at my farm, enjoy pets, and most important: family.

Cat urine odor: Idea to remove from manufactured home?
Posted: 8/10/2016 8:14:24 AM
Odor Fix or Odor out -- $139 a gallon from Google seems to be working so far.

One part Odor Fix to 10 parts water. I need to apply every 7 days.

Next problem is that my attorney won't take the case against tenant ($15,000 worth of damage so far)...... she is a real estate broker who has a decent income and sells a lot of property in the area.

Chromis1- Re: FullMoonGuy's profile.

There is no photo & that always alerts my cautious side.

His profile is rather unique in a positive way. It is the lack of a picture that makes a statement considering we are in a sophisticated, digital age.


In the old days, with personal ads, people would state " no response without a picture". Sort of the same thing here.

Pet Smart - they do NOT sell anything effective.

I have ordered ODOR FIX PLUS from Google. Money back. good reviews. I gallon= one part Odor Fix Plus to 10 parts water.

Also BIN which is like Kilz (primer) is suppose to be more effective than Kilz primer. Costs more too.

So far ODOR is like Chernobyl and may take a loooong time to dissipate.

Cat urine odor: Idea to remove from manufactured home?
Posted: 7/23/2016 5:42:51 PM
daynadaze-- that is funny about " you know you live in a small town when waiting for 3 cars to pass makes you gripe about traffic." My son always laughs at what I call traffic.

UPDATE: on cat anti urine products.

FIRST-- the handyman pulled up the simulated Allure floor. Its a vinyl wood appearing floor that is laid with a self glue so that it is virtually seamless. COST me plenty -- I love Allure floors. However, when removed, some of the smell dissipated.

Also Petco and Pet smart sell an gallon ($40.00) of anti cat urine which has ingredients that break up the urine smell. have not applied it yet.

There are also BAGS that can be bought on the internet to reverse the urine smell but the gallon was faster to obtain.

Cat urine odor: Idea to remove from manufactured home?
Posted: 7/22/2016 6:07:05 PM
The suggestions may work. I have searched the internet. Also many of your comments & suggestions are appreciate.

Regarding getting what the land lord deserves: We had a very bad recession in La Belle. A Real Estate Broker, with a nice income, asked to rent the mobile while she was doing house repairs on her waterfront home.

Instead of the home being temporary, she stayed and stayed. In November I tried to inspect the house and she threw a fit--made threats, called the sheriff on me. WOW. I then hired an attorney and the process of eviction began. She fought it tooth and nail with her attorney but in the end she had to leave & pay my attorney fees. The Sheriff escorted her out.

The is a small town and every one knows everyone here. Many went to the same high school etc. She still has to obey the law.

When I recovered my property---it was a mess. I spent time today with the attorney to file a suit against her. Hoarding, filthy and with feces and urine every where. THIS is a fine example of a leader. Her daughter is in Law School.

In 40 years of having tenants, this damage is the worst. My handman is a former police officer (also known all over town) and he and I are working to get it back to shape.

A cleaning company has turned me down for cat spray/ urine but said they will come out for a good will gesture. The floors may well have to come up. Simulated wood and the plywood underneath.

NOW this little town is begging for rentals so I will rent it quickly when its done. Before Walmart went up (next to my mobile) this town was slow, single lanes and really nice. NOW we have DD, Walmart, Dollar Tree and TRAFFIC.

My tenant moved and the urine smell from her cats is Horrific!

A cleaning lady did a fabulous clean up b/c the tenant was also a hoarder! but the smell is overbearing.

This is a manufactured home with a raised wood floor covered with simulated wood. So far it has been near two weeks and the place reeks of urine/ feces.

ANY suggestion? The restoration/ cleaning company will not accept the job. They said "Rip up the the floor and replace".

Skin

Be sure to look at the skin. There is a huge difference in skin quality from young to old.

I just received a message from a man who said he was 66 but his skin said 46. Sure enough.......he is 49.

I wanted to alert POF but this is not an offense so I blocked the good ole' boy.

______________________________________
Taken from an internet article:
How to Spot an Online Dating Scammer

Spotting Discrepancies
---image title (I. e. Honest John, ) help spot an Online Dating Scammer

Note any age difference in which you are the older one. Online dating scammers usually target people older than themselves. In the case of a male scammer, they often target middle aged women in their 50's to 60's.
2. Look for the following descriptions in their profile:
• self employed, a professional (for example, an engineer) working overseas
• a widower with a child (or just widowed)
• they claim to live near you, in your country, currently away but will be returning soon.

---Do a photo check. Save a copy of their profile picture. Use Google image search.

Reading or Listening Between the Lines
Look closely at emails they send you. The scammer will send you an email which is full of inconsistencies, often getting their own name or your name wrong.
2
Talk. Phone conversations can often unravel a fake.

• Beware of Speed
Be suspicious of rapid escalation. Then, if the phone calls and texting rapidly escalate in expressions of love and passion, and they tell you that they have fallen in love, be very alarmed.
• Over-the-top expressions of feelings for you even though you haven't met are a warning sign.

How many times have you gone out on a first date that did not go further?
Posted: 6/4/2016 5:12:42 AM
gtomustang

You put it in plain understandable terms: a first date is like a test drive.

My first date recently did not like my use of the word close as in "I feel close to my family......" and before the sentence was finished he exploded with "Liar" ---- his preception of close is geographically close. My preception included email, skype, Facebook, phone etc.

We tried a second date & this man likes conflict and confrontation----test drive is over.

TEST Drive is a good example.

Independent voting ideas?

cotter & others

All have taken a lot of time to answer my post-----so much energy here.

I have researched Cruz and I am not convinced the negative reports are true. He seems the best----maybe tied with Carson. I am surrounded by many close friends who disagree with me--- so i listen.

Frankly, I am stuck. Both candidates are bad.

Bernie.....the worst. He is Carl Marx reborn. The poor will get poorer and the rich will be friends of Mr Bernie. Look at Cuba? Great place. former East Germany? Mao's China? these are WONDERFUL examples of Bernie aka Carl Marx.

daynadaze-

i wasnt 100% for anyone but I thought Trump might be a good choice. I vote for the person; not the party.

Bill Clinton is a good leader and it seems we prospered when he was in office.
I think Hilary is independently sneaky---much worse than Bill.

Trump is too much of a bully. I like Dr Carson and Cruz--they did not deserve his send off. WIN FAIR---Trump could have had my vote and others but he lost my respect.

I'd rather see Hilary in the White house.

I know: my vote wont count.

JUST curious: why is Cruz unpopular?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To possibly now-- i cant post my personal reasons for not voting for Bernie--if you are permitted by POF to write me, ok--i will tell you. I have been through plenty with KKK stuff and my family was sued for being the wrong shade of white--told to move... (we won & then MOVED)--Trust me.....Bernie would make it worse.

Any ideas for a camping group? Camping with a cat?
Posted: 5/3/2016 7:47:54 PM
daynadaze

My tent is air conditioned. The pets are my family and love to be with me. The cat goes to the farm and back. Not always happily but once she is there, she runs straight to her food area and waits.

My tent will have a/c, be zipped closed and Kitty will have the company of my 9 pound mix and a french bull dog (which I inherited after a relative died.)

There is no cruelty in this family!

This is from the link one poster sent to me:

"Camping with cats? Yes, it’s possible. It’s also a great way for your feline friend to get some exercise and for the two of you to bond in the outdoors. However, you can’t simply attach a leash to your cat’s collar, pack an extra can of tuna and head into the woods with your little campurr. If you want to ensure that both you and kitty have an enjoyable time, it’s going to take a little planning and preparation."

Facebook has a whole area about Adventure cats and camping!

thanks for the links.

the cat travels unhappily to my farm and then is fine. She is especially fond of the tiny mixed dog---> and shes bigger than her friend.

I bought (Sal Army) a HUGE great Dane size carrier to provide Kitty with all kinds of comfort. have the harness too.

However, I have reconsidered the cat in the tent.... I will pull the HUGE carrier into the tent when I leave for a hike or to go somewhere. I do appreciate you all emphasizing the dangers. It will keep me more cautious.

The truck gets me more respect too-- though the engine is a 4 (?) and does not have the pick up speed of my Prius.

I will ask questions at the Toyota dealership and there is a really sharp mechanics shop near me. What about a place that specializes in trucks only? They just installed a collapsible truck topper---similar to what they use on Jeeps.

Another book " he's just not into you" - helpful tips

Also-- a must have for you or just to be in the know....Lundy Bancroft "Why does he do that"----excellent for learning about controlling men.

Thanks for info about state laws. I am talking with a man who builds tear drop campers for a living. I will also call the DOT.

This campers are expensive and can be tricky to make if the builder is not skilled.

I have been checking and looking into it. Not as simple as I had thought----but I am leaning toward a skilled builder with a lot of history. AND I WANT to be SURE it will be allowed on the road.

purplerider1200 & others: the price of the mini mate is way to high!

Also interesting about pulling with my Prius. will keep this in mind.

I have a wonderful 1996 Red Toyota Tacoma--one owner. Many miles. is like a tank. #4 motor. Is not smooth like my 07 Prius nor as good as 45 miles a gallon (Prius) but it might work better for camping with a tear drop.

Am considering all that I am learning here

THE BIKE tear drop which is VERY light is the one I am most considering. My handy man is also interested.

SINCE I am so slow with all that I have taken on, it will be a future type of thing.

bamagrl68 & others:
I got lucky: the defense is now called a "conference call" and it is not like the old days---as I was recently informed.

For what ever reason, the Mentor has returned to her old charming self. hostilities have ceased.

The committee approved my dissertation (which includes the Mentor) and it was sent to the school editors. This is suppose to secure my passing---as it has been explained to me. From the editors it is returned to me for minor repairs and then to the school and then done!

Regarding nursing school --bamagrl68: this use to be the norm and is still true in some school IF the nursing instructors are secure. But since the nursing schools are having so many problems and nursing instructors come and go, its easier on the students. Also many students are 40 years plus and they are NOT going to tolerate the behavior we saw in the old days. Nursing school was tough & not just the material.

Tear drop camper

yougotmeakitten-- THANKS Wow--this looks great.

definitely me. I have a 2007 Prius and the manual info says No towing but this should be be light enough.

I am perfectly happy with a tent for my short trips but several camp grounds say NO tents-- though a small tear drop RV is ok. They are pricey unless self built but too heavy for my Prius.

THIS is just a project for my handyman who is basically retired and gives me fair prices. Uhmm--maybe this will go to Tennessee with me next time.

my 96 Toyota Tacoma gets only $25 to a gallon so I use the Prius more. It should tow a light camper--if I have the right info.

A van means more insurance, more car maintenance etc.

appreciate the info on the sites. I will look harder.

My budget is $1000.00 with no frills. I found a site where a man said he put his no frills together for $500.00-- so it seems possible for$1000.00

I camp next to the jons, the electric, the showers. NO wilderness camping for me. An electric outlet works for my hotplate.

I like waking up (in A/C or heat) and hearing the birds chirp etc.
