Prompt for the Day: “Refresh”



The stale people of the Daily Post group of Word Press dug up the word “Refresh” to inspire our creations for the day.

Refresh This

Today’s prompt made me think of a common problem of users of the Microsoft lousy operating system’s family of products including Windows Explorer.  The cache has to be reset causing you to loose minutes, hours, or years of work!  Why not try switching to a more secure program?

I personally have changed to a superior operating system called “Ubuntu“. The word is foreign to mere English speakers like myself, but it is South African in origin and means humanity or fellow feeling; kindness.  No more caches getting filled up due to storing unnecessary data.  No stealing of when and where you visit from this operating system!

Be assured I am in no way getting any profit from the above information I gave you.  This is free information I share to help others escape the tyranny of the vicious Microsoft empire!  I still remember programming in grade school using the Microsoft DOS operating system.  Back then they seemed to not be as money hungry as they are now.

Please Help Fight Evil Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.

Prompt for the Day: “Voice”

The under spoken people at the Daily Post group of Word Press want us to focus our creations today around the word “Voice“.

My Voice

Am going to use a first person Voice for my work today.  That is how I normally choose to write, anyway!

Growing up, was forced to belong to the church’s choir.  Was the only one who was actually was able to be heard in junior choir (grade school age kids).  Got in trouble from my father if I was unable to be heard.  Hated it, but as I was promoted to youth choir due to being in junior high school, got along much better.

Was in a school musical performance of “Oliver” in my eighth grade year of school.  Had a blast.  Everyone there sang loud enough I was not forced to carry the group like I did at church.

Graduated and went off to college.  Joined a church and was involved in their church choir there.  Turned out I was officially an alto.  Never knew that before.  Learned a lot about my voice from that group of people.  But darker days where coming in my voice’s life.

Started to lose control of my volume and pitch due to an evil disease known as multiple sclerosis.  Can no longer be heard unless I try to be heard.  What little voice skills I had where long gone in the past.

Prompt for the day: “Conceal”

The secretive people at the Daily Post group of Word Press chose “Conceal” as the prompt for today’s work.

How to Hide Something

Most people think the only things that are concealed tend to be weapons.  What about the young people who hide alcohol from adults or even the condoms before their upcoming date?  Hackers hide their ability to compromise your system through a free program.  Think twice before downloading software without some sort of firewall to protect your equipment.

Hackers hide their ability to compromise your system through a free program.  Think twice before downloading software without some sort of firewall to protect your equipment.  You’d be surprised what is concealed by offering a FREE product.

How else do the illegal drugs enter our country? There was a raid of hidden cocaine coming from a foreign country that prevented several tons from reaching our citizens.  Some are actually manufactured here in the states.  That is why there are restrictions on certain over the counter medicines that fight colds and headaches.The

The most scary type of hiding or concealing is hiding a dead body!  If you are planning on committing a murder, the most important thing to plan is how to dispose of the body,

Prompt for the Day: “Frivolous”

The carefree people of the Daily Post division of Word Press stumbled across the prompt for today of “Frivolous“.

No Time for Frivolous Things

Wake up each morning with a set goal in mind.  Get dressed, take my medicines, feed the cat, lay out clothes for the next day, then drink breakfast.  Once that is finished, settle down to complete a Fill-It-In puzzle book page.  (Helps keep my handwriting more readable for my husband.)

Then I retreat to the office in our house where my laptop is located.  Since the only ones who can read my writing these days are myself and my husband, I type my words out for the rest of the world to read.  Lost my writing ability along with the rest of my coordination to a disease known as multiple sclerosis.  Lost my ability to walk as well, am now confined to a wheelchair to be able to get around in the world.

Am lucky enough to have been qualified as permanently handicapped which gives me access to a service here in St. Paul known as Metro Mobility.  They allow me to be picked up from our house and driven to my appointments when needed.  In theory also is used it to go to other places like the library.

Prompt for the Day: “Fearless”

The brave people working at the Daily Post division of Word Press chose “Fearless” as the prompt for the day to cause us to create inspirational works of art.

Am a Chicken Now!

With all the problems I have survived in my life, I am no longer as brave as I was back when I was a network engineer in Colorado!  There I could face the CEO’s of major companies since I was able to fix their networking problems with the help of the team of people I was with.  I had the router knowledge they needed to move their data safely all over the world!

When my husband and I relocated to Wisconsin back in 2004, I basically ended up losing my mind.  Was living with excruciating pain in my legs from lack of my medicines that I used to get from my doctors back in CO.  Tried finding employment there, but no one wanted an engineer.  Tried working for a retail company that failed to follow the ADA laws.

Ended up trying to commit suicide.  With that incident, all my computer knowledge disappeared as well.  Can no longer face people now like I used to be able to do so easily.

Am no longer able to write legibly, so I type so I and others can read my works.  Started blogging using my laptop to keep my language skills from vanishing as well.

Prompt for the Day: “Help”

The daily prompt given to us today by the panicking people in the Daily Press division of Word Press was “Help“.  Apparently they were not familiar with the nationwide 911 services!

Help Musically

First words that came to my mind were the song of a famous Beatles song by the title of “Help“.  There is also the song “Help Me” by Joni Mitchell.  Personally, I prefer the Beatles musical gifts.

Help Depression

Get help from someone immediately if you are feeling suicidal!  Call 911 if nothing else.  Seek professional help if you can wait to see your doctor.  Your doctor may refer you to a psychologist or psychiatrist.  The later can prescribe you medications to help your mood get leveled out.  Warning it generally takes weeks for the meds to work.  The doctor may have to try several different ones to find the best remedy for your body.

Make sure you let your loved ones know what is going on.  Having a good friend to talk to can help you let off steam when you need to let it out.  If you belong to any religious group, they may also offer comfort in times of trouble.

Prompt for the Day: “Nerve”

The people from the Daily Post group of Word Press must enjoy spying on other people’s lives since they chose the prompt for today as “Nerve” to inspire or creations for the day.

My Nerves are Messed Up

Both the physical nerves and the mental nerves.  Physically, my body is inflicted with a disease called multiple sclerosis.  Have had this disease basically since birth.  Went to the family doctor wth my first symptoms in grade school.  The idiot told my mom that I was making things up, there was no physical evidence to the sunburn feeling I was having on my stomach and legs.

Did not get a clearer picture of what was wrong with me until I left the state to attend college.  While there, went to a chiropractor for pains in my neck and back.  After visiting him for a year or two, he sent me to have an M.R.I. performed on my spine.  Got the results back and the doctor told me he could no longer be of any long term help since I either had spinal cancer or multiple sclerosis.  Wish it had been cancer, because I probably would have died by now!

On the mental nerve subject, I suffer from general anxiety now.  Being around unknown people makes me overly nervous.  Miss being in charge of huge networks like I used to be when I was able to work.  Made friends from all over the world by creating network connections for businesses.   But now that I am unemployed, I have lost my nerve.

Prompt for the Day: “Price”

The marketing minded people at the Daily Post group of Word Press chose the word “Price” for today’s prompt to drive us to further creations.

Consider the Price

How much does you favorite things actually cost you to obtain?  Are actual things what makes you happy?  I generally prefer things that are free.  Meaning there is no cost associated with them.  I like just spending time with my husband.  Granted riding a motorcycle does cost by the use of gasoline required to power the vehicle, but at least, it is cheaper than riding around in a car or truck!  Rereading a good book cost nothing now when we purchased it years ago.

Cuddling up with our cat cost nothing except the price of feeding the animal.  (Have to also purchase clean litter for it to use.)  If we could just get it to refrain from biting us when he is pissed off!

Unfortunately, visiting the local library will cost the use of the local metro transit bus fees since I can no longer walk due to multiple sclerosis.  The average person could walk there for free.  You could check out a book while there at no cost.

Prompt for the Day: “Friend”

The extroverts from the Daily Post division of Word Press selected the word “Friend” for today’s daily prompt.

Song came to Mind Instantly!

You’ve Got a Friend by James Taylor has always been a favourite of mine!  There are so many good songs about friends out there in the world today.  Most of the best have been around for many years but are still played because they hit you right where it matters the most down to your soul.

One of the songs we sang in Girl Scouts was “Make New Friends…“.  Then there was the popular graduation song “Friends Forever“.  Television shows have been popular because of the friends the characters portrayed to the audience.  Who can forget the popular comedy series “Seinfeld“?  Ran for a total of 173 episodes. “Bosom Buddies” was another show about friends.

The Golden Girls theme song “Thank you for being a Friend” gets stuck in my head way too often!  How wold we survive without the help of our friends?  Even introverts like me miss seeing our friends when we have relocated several different times through various different states of this country.  Technology lets us keep in touch today.  Am thankful for phone calls and the internet messaging!  That is how we are able to keep in touch with each other’s lives<

Prompt for the Day: “Window”

The people from the Daily Post division of Word Press finally made it all the way to the ‘W’ section where they came up with today’s prompt for our creations of “Window“!

Miss the Office Window in Colorado

We had an excellent view looking out over the Rocky Mountains from our house there.  Gave such a scope for my writings while we lived there.  Remained for seven short years which I wish could have gone on for eternity.  The neighbors were great.  Not much traffic problems in the cul-de-sac on which we lived.  Wonderful kids and animals kept us laughing all the time.

The view out our office window here in Minnesota where we now reside is depressingly bland.  To tell the truth, can not see anything out of it.  The animals here are all stray cats that like using our yard as their private litter box.  We have a strictly indoor cat ourselves.  Our cat likes sunning himself in our front room window.  Occasionally he gets too much sun and ends up barfing.  I am the only one that can stomach cleaning up his barf messes.

Regularly tell the cat he is responsible for keeping birds and animals out of the house.  That is why I open the window for him each morning.
