    ....from the news


    The shootings, the pirates, (although I find that one fascinating, I hope it turns out well!)[​IMG] Economy, people losing their jobs & houses, leaving pets at shelters that are already overwhelmed.......The plain old GREED that's out there ....animal abuse, child abuse, you know, it goes on & on. I know there's a plus side; seeds are selling big time, people are starting to garden, get chickens even.

    I've been in a slump. I need a happy place in my mind. Even on BYC, I try to read and help on certain areas, but I can't even handle a chick injury (since I have them now and can relate) predator problem. [​IMG] AAAhhh, I'm feeling vulnerable or something...I hope this feeling is over soon.


    I HAVE been visiting the hobby section, and the sewing part has helped a lot!




    Well, I feel a wee bit better.

    I've nicknamed the Wall Street Journal, "The Doom Street Journal"

    I'm tired of it too. Should we make this into a happy things thread?

    I was afraid that you were going to take a break from BYC [​IMG]

    Head on over to The Easy Garden, nothing bad happens over there. [​IMG]

    I am very happy here in my bubble.

    Quote:I don't need a break from BYC, just some of the topics that make me feel sad. I want to help, but it's like, eh - need to do other stuff so as to not feel blahh. Like go to hobby section...... for awhile, some of our members have had hard times with health and such, so it's sad to read about at times. I wish everyone well and wish that it could be good for everyone all of the time. But that's not realistic. Bad things happen. We move on. I want to read about fun stuff and happy things.

    Thank you Andy, I just may go back to the Easy Garden to visit. [​IMG]

    I read that some men in Georgia saved a baby rabbit from flood waters! They risked their lives for it! That was sweet![​IMG]

    I also don't read the newspaper or watch the news. I just hang out here on the BYC and lurk.
