“Foam ear plugs of the type common on construction sites are less conspicuous and reduce noise nicely.”

Thanks for posting that - ear plugs would be the way to go.

Guess it’s time to rewrite the history of BB King, Blind Lemon Jefferson, John Lee Hooker, Leadbelly, Billie Holliday, Muddy Waters. Heck, it’s good enough for Abe Lincoln, so why not? /s

There were 66 comments here so I read those before posting. I was a professional counselor/psychological examiner for over 20 yrs. and had a private practice. I was a conservative then, too. I also did grief counseling. ...

Wow – I am impressed with your memory! And how confidential not writing anything down made everything that your patients told you.

I am sure there are many excellent psychologists and psychiatrists out there, such as yourself. I have found that many psychologists that I meet tend to be liberal, so I never trusted their perspective as far as wanting to see them or recommend them. However, a conservative psychologist that seeks to help people to learn to help themselves within a few months is very refreshing to hear about!

I would imagine the majority of negative posts here either have to do with encountering a liberal or incompetent psychologist or psychiatrist - or probably has more to do with the recent increase of "disabled" people getting Social Security disability. I see it as a Big Government ploy to get more people dependent on the government, and therefore either more Democratic voters or less people that will complain when our rights are further infringed upon. The rules to get Social Security disability must have been relaxed because there's no logical way more people becoming disabled (with unemployment down, work related injuries would also be down).

And thank God for sensitive and loving yorkies!

“Wow – I am impressed with your memory!”

You and I have had some Freepmails. I remember everything you have written including most of your words.

Now, I’m 79 and supposed to be totally forgetful - it hasn’t happened. I think my memory stays excellent because I use my mind every minute of the day. I also play computer games that requires my mind to make fast decisions.

It’s a cold son-of-a-beotch that gets over grief two weeks after the death of a child, or of a spouse.

My mind was doing ok till oxygen deprevation took its toll. It’s getting better though. While my memory is not as good as usual, I am still pretty good at analysis. A few lists and notes help with the memory essentials.

I look forward to as many years as the good Lord gives me.
