Ideally, yes. And each day more folks are getting older. More housing is needed. I doubt it will be a priority, but it's where my advocacy concentrates now. Until then, I'll try to do my small part with the people who did find a seat when the music stopped.

Same here, and I worked on one for 3 summers during college. Still get butterflies driving over it.

I always center myself on none of the residents wanted to be there. This likely wasn't their choice. The best I can offer them is the best I can be. I'm older now, and I've seen more than the young, so I offer them grace if it overwhelms them. Lean into the team. Cry as needed.

I feel for you and all the others. I essentially filled that role for my folks as a trial run, so I've carried it on as what I am able to do. I'm not fully in the cognitive care wing yet, but even outside that I see many of the residents who are borderline but's there's no space.

I think the expanded story telling around the Ferengi are one of the reasons I love DS9 so much. Plus having Hawk from Spencer for Hire as the CO was top notch all around for me.

I've thought about it. A neighbor up the road has it, loves it, and it's cheaper than my monthly bill, though not by enough for me to get the itch. After research I dismiss SlingTV and Fubo.

There's a book in here, I know it. "My Life Living the Rules of Acquisition." Or maybe a daily video pod of me making use of a rule every day for hilarity.

American life overall, in ways that make my head hurt, is just reality TV to many. 45 recognized the biggest market of all, was lauded for it, and is fighting hard not to give it up.

Hulu Live for me has offered more at $81 than the basic TV package offered by the local provider. That was $124, but TV channels only, no Hulu, Disney+ or ESPN+. They still get $97 for base internet though,

Sometimes they matter most of all. You just don't know going in the outcome. Each of us navigate those moments based upon what we have experienced thus far, and probably a lot of what some may call luck.

Will be bartering with a neighbor for tomatoes again this summer. A quality tomato is a delight. We have political differences, but we find neutral ground in the barter.

Also, he doesn't vote.

No matter the outcome, they're all going to still be living quite near to me. They're not going away. How that evolves probably rests in my hands, sadly. And a glib remark on my part could make for a bad day. I think I'm up to the task though. My moral convictions are known, and folks talk to me.

The essence of a good negotiation. There has to be a Ferengi rule of acquisition for this.

I think as with daycare of young children, whether in a public or private settings, that will be fought tooth and nail by various parties. Based on what I have seen over the years. Even 'free' solutions, because nothing is really free. There will always be associated cost.

Now I want pizza. Before it was tacos, which went unfulfilled. Perhaps a taco pizza over the weekend at some point.

No emotion, no nuance. Just "We are Borg." The way it's fragmenting makes it into those that lost connection to the Collective as well.
