    to be a dirty old man.  You just need to be needy.

    I for one, don't think old people without car elevators need companionship. They need to be isolated and studied to determine what nutrients they have that might be extracted for our personal use. - Mitt Romney

      is part of what makes us human beings.  It's the things we learn regarding how to take care of them that determines whether or not we have problems.

      Hugh Prather wrote:  "Given the alternatives we (have learned to) allow ourselves, we always do what we want."  (The words in parenthesis are mine.)

      Another idea is:   Life is 5% what we make it, and 95% how we learned to take it.

      In either case, if we have problems based on what we learned, we just need to learn different alternatives, so we CAN make different choices.

      The hard part is when we learn to believe there are no alternatives, and that it's always been done this way.
