About Me

I reside in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I am female, single, and one year from full retirement. I'm already retired from a 30-year career with IBM. Love my Victorian house built in 1858 and my dogs and cats.

Don't know where else to ask this question. Last spring a whitetail

doe had twin fawns in my neighborhood (in the center of town) and I thought one was male and the other female. I named them Bert and Nan. I saw them with their mother almost daily through November. I have been feeding deer at my house for a couple of years

We'll, this spring there's been a doe and a guy with budding antlers coming to eat together.

Is it common for siblings to remain together? Could they be my Bobbsey twins?

My sister committed suicide today. I'm the one who.found her and

called 911. She has been depressed since her husband died 3 years ago today. I now have only my son and granddaughter as my family.

I've never had to deal directly with a death before. Right now I'm angry that she couldn't move forward with living.

I had thought we'd travel together and enjoy our senior years. She was 70 and I'm 68.

Since you changed to HTTPS, I can't see photos in the photography

group nor the Sunday LOLcats post on my phone app. When I went to the Play Store to see if there was a new update or version of DU, I can't find anything from Democratic Underground.com.

I can't remember if I got my app there or not (I'm old). Need help.

Rep. Steve Womack is "terribly disappointed" and admits GOP

hasn't "learned to govern."

Here's the complete quote:
"We haven't learned to govern. It's like ... we are stuck and we're still in the minority, and all we know how to do is vote 'no'. Today we had an opportunity to make the health-care system in this country better, more affordable and more accessible, and we just failed to execute it, so I'm terribly disappointed".

OMG, ex-Sentor Bill Frist now believes in climate change and protecting

the environment! Just got the latest magazine from The Nature Conservancy and they have a write-up about him. Apparently, he's been named to their board. Here's a quote:

"I have seen firsthand how the spread of infectious disease, Zika virus, issues around clean water and cholera, and insufficient food supplies are exacerbated by a changing climate. These changes represent some of the greatest health risks of the 21st century."
