" I will get around to writing in here one of these days! Honest. Ok here I am, I was out of commission for a while, in and out of the hospital, the good news is that I have recovered and I am back.  I do have a new cause now and that would be to have a law in place so that all doctors MUST check your chart for allergies... before giving you medication.  Should be a given, however it is not.  I cane back to Care2 to find that my page was gone, they managed to restore it, but all my friends are gone.  I am still working on getting them back, because I had some pretty cool friends   Peace MJ       

The Box

Once upon a time…

in the land of Hush-a-bye…

around those wondrous days of yore…
They came across a sort of box,

bound up with chains and locked with locks

and labeled :
Kindly Do Not Touch, It Is War.
A decree was issued round about…

with a flourish and a shout…

and gaily colored mascot tripling lightly on before…

“Don't meddle with this deadly box

or break it's chains or unlock it's locks,
and please don't ever play about with war.”

Well the children understood.

Children happen to be good

and just as good around those wondrous days of yore.

They didn't try to pick the locks or break into the deadly box

and they never ever tried to play about war.

Mommies didn't either,

sisters, aunts or grannies neither.

Because they were sweet
and gentle in those wondrous days of yore…

Well just as much the same as now.

And not the ones to blame somehow…

for opening up that deadly box of war.
But someone did.
Someone battered in the lid

and spilled the insides out across the floor.
A sort of bouncy bumpy ball

made up of bombs and guns and all…

the horrors and the death that go with war.

Well it bounced right out and went bashing all about

and bumping into everything in store.

But what was sad and most unfair…

was it didn't really seem to care…

much who it bumped, or why, or what, or for.

It bumped the children mainly,

and I tell you this quiet plainly

It bumps them every day more and more…

it leaves them dead and burnt and crying…

thousands of them sick and dying…

'cause when it bumps it's very very sore.

There is a way to stop this ball,
It isn't very hard at all,

All it takes is WISDOM and I'm absolutely sure…

we could get the ball back in the box…

and bind the chains and lock the locks…

But no one seems to want to save the children anymore.
Well that's the way it all appears…

‘cause it's been bouncing ‘round for years and years…

in spite of all the wisdom whizzed…

since those wondrous days of yore…

and the day they came across the box…

bound up with chains and locked with locks

and labeled…



I am here because I believe in making the world a better place.

I believe in treating others with trust and respect.

I believe that everyone has something to contribute.

Unless someone like you cares a whole, awful lot. Things aren't going to get better, they're NOT!"

    Hi Mary Jane,

    I tried to send what I am writing to you through the regular way of sending messages but it wouldn't go through. So I am trying this way to reach you.

    I checked the "Lets Really Talk" group and I found that my application is still pending and has been probably for months.

    Please let me know that you are ok, ok Mary Jane?

    Thank you.

    With best wishes for you, Mary Jane,

    Your friend - Stuart

    Hi Mary Jane,

    You wrote on your Billboard:
    "I am here because I believe in making the world a better place.

    I believe in treating others with trust and respect.

    I believe that everyone has something to contribute."

    I commend you for it; I like it a lot!

    I saw in the newspaper today that Detroit is expecting snow with a high of
    38 degrees and a low of 32 degrees. Is
    the weather that you get in China, Michigan the same or similar to that of Detroit?

    I wish you and those you care about and for have a wonderful weekend!

    I am glad we are friends again, Mary Jane!

    In friendship,
