I'll be visiting other blogs soon.

I was 2 1/2 hours in the dental chair two days ago and 2 hours getting things updated/signed at the lawyer's today, so I'm waaay behind visiting. Need to get my energy reserves back up and I'll be around visiting again!

Oh, am posting my before and after teeth thing. After three years of filling cavities, root canals, three extractions, etc. we finally got to my front teeth where a cap had gone bad, showing the metal around it and two teeth that had been bonded when I had huge cavities there in the 80's had turned ORANGE. I was so used to covering my mouth when I smiled, it's hard not to do that now. At any rate, the visit was getting a special type of veneer bonded over those(not cemented or glued) and the veneers were made from impressions so they could be made to give the teeth an even look again instead of the capped on drifted back. I wore braces when young and had beautiful teeth so it feels good to have them back again.

Six Billion Others

On this amazing and moving site, already thousands of brief statements have been recorded on subjects such as joy, fears, dreams and the recording continues. All statements are shot in close face in the speaker's native language, with the translation in the language you choose to the side. I come to this site from time to time and watch several at a time it interests me so. More than anything, it shows us that, indeed, we are part of one family, each of us not so different from the other in the things that are important to us.

The following is a screen shot from this site of a man from Rhodesia in his thirties. He's quite a person. An avid sailor, he was in a car accident, losing the use of his legs, but continues to sail in a wheelchair.

And here's another participant, speaking of marriage.
