I just dropped by to say hello and good morning to you all and had to put in my painful thing that makes me smile when I get to do it.  Tell someone how pretty their smile is or how well a lady looks no matter their age.  

Have a great day

You are welcome to the group. Omhom will be in a few minutes to extend his warm welcome.

I have gone through a website of "Chair tai Chi" it also gives acupressure points for the ailments.If you go therogh previous pages, you will know what is available in this group.

Co incidents are not accidental. If you meditate on coincidences, you will find the reason. this told by a poster in another website. In fact I do have lots of coincidences. Whenever i am thinking on certain subject, I do get that subject in surfing or somewhere else.

so dalubaba make it a coincidence to post one thing you do---a new one---tonight before sleep maybe---for the pain.

You have a lot to offer and the energy you send in your posts is enough to get me through the day so don't get discouraged. Pardon me for being greedy but I need the energy. You really don't want me to become suicidal do you? (JOKING!)
Remember you can't save the world but just bits and pieces of it at a time and then the bits and pieces become a whole.
Who cares what people don't have to offer on the couch, it is what they do offer that makes a difference and you are a part of that. I enjoy reading your posts and check this site daily. You are not at a loss here at this end and when no one has anything to offer that just leaves room for the rest of us that care to post and show our concern. It may only be small potatoes but that is how you create a bit pot of stew and many a stew was started in soup kitchens that fed many a person.
What makes me feel bad is when someone so dedicated to caring feels alone. How could you even think that, at least from The Mad Man's point of view.

Response of themadman is enough to make you appear in this group. I visualize this group as a treasure of Life-Lifting -Techniques. It may be used to day or after years-it does not matter.I feel that finding out something by ferreting from Internet and share it here. It will be one window system for all types of maladies of life.Let us go on , maybe at a snail's speed. Now do we meet at Your 7pm???

what about "fun" as something to do to feel better? When i need a quick "funny" i think of milking chickens! HA!   (well it does sound fun---maybe not for the rooster!).

I remember...
I was once offered to live on a farm but being a city boy...I responded...
That I was not going to get up at 4am to milk the chickens.
True story. I just got confused!!!!

Hi omhome,

I know you posted this invitation to comment on just one thing I do for
fun. Ready - here goes. I google a variety of subjects. I love googling
different topics and learning more about them. One website usually
leads me to another website. That's actually how I found Medhelp.
I don't remember what subject I was googling, but that subject brought
me here and I' m glad it did. It depends on my mood. Sometimes I google
phrases. I'm also very interested in the origin of words. You see my parents
were both born in German so I grew up hearing and speaking German.
In school, I also learned some Latin, french and spanish, so as you can
see I'm very interested in language and the similarities among these various language.  Adieu for now.  Eve :)

Hi om,

I never knew until today that you can go on train rides through India or tour
museums on you tube. I can't wait to go on you tube and try some of
these virtual tours myself. I like your idea of "hunting" yoga stuff. I remember you telling me you were once a yoga instructor. Yoga is actually
something I'd like to try. I also know there are different kinds of yoga.
Which yoga would be best for me do you think keeping in mind I am a
beginner ? Have fun on your train ride and whatever other virtual adventures you find yourself in or on today. Eve

Hi om,

Thank you for the name of the website. I've visited youtube before to
watch the occasional video, but until today I didn't realize all the
possibilities. Eve :)

Wow, I just got in touch with a military brother who I served with over 30 years ago. I am part of a veterans board and stay in touch with navybuddies.com and I have found some old friends I served with.
My buddy is going for Captain aboard a submarine duty station and I never though he would stick it out. Apparently he did and we have been in touch. Amazing to see where the years take you.
My memory is not so good and he brought up names that I had forgotten about. What a rush. I feel like I am reliving a second childhood.

good morning madman-----Hey!~ Omhome cares..........and what fun it is to be able to "spark" some old memory neurons and replay parts of our lives we thought we had forgotten about or even lost. Thanks for the reminder and i am about to try and "spark" some memories from the days of good 'ol haight-ashbury!~    
     Sometimes just a certain Smell will do the trick for me. Eucalyptus tree smells from golden gate park always works well.

Morning, Thanks for the note of recognition. Seems going back in time really 'sparks' the thinking mechanism. Dusting off a lot of cobwebs...? What memories. Young and stupid, but great times back then. The one thing I do remember is being out to sea and what the waters did to the days events. Some days choppy, other days, smooth and beautiful. Oh what great memories...?

Hi Om,

Re: May 16th comments

I just happened to read your comment this morning Sun. May 19th.
I've always wanted to hear one of the Dalai Lama's talks. I will certainly
do that. My favorite group is the Eagles and I have watched part of an
Eagle's concert on youtube. It was great. Yesterday I visited youtube
and I went on a train travel through Kerala, India. It was amazing.
There are other train trips mentioned on the website like a train trip
through Canada. I'll definitely try that one. Cheers, Eve :)

now we're talking FUN folks------and all things old and new. Some science shows that we have recorded everything that has happened to us and it is there if we can just "spark" it.
    And you tube?  ?    !!!        Everything that has happened in the world----and movies and music-----yes train rides ti europe and beyond-----africa looks good today for me----I keep being surprised!  I  watched a doors concert last night!   OK..........anybody else in this game  here on the couch----can't just watch---gotta at least say hi and feed our "posters" to keep 'em going.
