Not me. I like to speak my mind too much.

Want deprived becomes pain?? Really? I've wanted a jacuzzi and sauna
for almost 20 years now, and I'm not in pain because I don't have it. I
think about it everyday with every sore muscle and aching joint.
I just tell myself the truth-that is is a luxury that I don't need and
can't afford-that I have gotten by without it this long, and that I am
tough and can do without. I made some poor decisions when I was about
21 or so, and that leaves me wanting today, too. Still, I don't demand
that any elected official solve my problems, but a grant for old folks
like me to go back to school would be nice. :)

I like the guy that built his own little island out of plastic bottles
and such. I wonder what happened to that?
