If you slept last night, you’ve got one up on me!
I’m on a spooky deadline!

A Quora answer by Mark Urso, Author of “A Candle Lit”:
The problem with AA is something that happens very early, when a person, a “sufferer,” is first introduced to the idea, sees a pamphlet or checks out his first meeting … the system can easily lose its credibility and feel either like it’s extreme, or members are jumping to conclusions …
People are simply scared away before they join.
In my book, “A Candle Lit,” I call them “leavers-before-they-enter.”
The three biggest problems are …
Ambiguous Permanence: It’s never been proven alcoholism is permanent, but members commonly insist it is. This is a credibility hit if the new person thinks about it … To make matters confusing, the words “alcoholic” Continue reading “Why is AA So Ineffective?”
Happy Halloween Everyone!

We were living on the beach …
Sea, sand, walks so sweet and
Of course, the blueberries

I left my frisbee in your bushes, I’ll be back another time
I’ve been cruising somewhere near the Saratoga line
From my understanding, you’ll be doing fine
And I’ll always have my hometown memories in my mind
Pretty sure you had a big bash, I could see it from the sky
For just a little girl I’m not sure I understand why
You’re going to need an entourage, everywhere you go!
I dropped everything you know!
You haven’t exactly been accessible
And your appetite’s insatiable
Your mansion is historical
But you are still untouchable
Tailor made, I’ll call your bluff! Continue reading “Tailor Made (A Poem)”
(Fairfax, VA) The US Census Bureau announced impressionable young people are available in greater numbers than usual. Many failed to show up for a recent march on the headquarters of the National Rifle Association (NRA) in Fairfax Saturday afternoon.
These young people, who probably learned in school that they should get involved in important causes, apparently didn’t get their invitations, or weren’t certain what they were supposed to do at the NRA rally. Regardless, there’s more of them available, looking for a cause, so if you have old people that need meals delivered to them, work done around their houses or yard work, those are just some ideas. These kids are able-bodied and ready to go. They need a cause!
Some of them will do whatever you tell them to. In case you need a window broken, for example, some of them are good at that!
When I was younger, it was easier to find a cause. The shooters would set up in a tower right in the middle of a college campus. Continue reading “College Kids Need A Hobby (Or, Boy, Does America Like Its Guns!)”
I’ve learned something about troubled young people. I spend more time these days on Quora, where I have an established audience for my mental health preachings. Before I speak in layman’s-statistics-style, I’ll be general.
Quora is a place anyone can ask a question, and anyone, showing their credentials, can answer. I spend time in the mental health section trying to help people. I’m 56, well experienced and self published, and I find it gratifying thinking I might help someone.
Quora, though, isn’t a cross section of young people, even though there are a lot of Continue reading “Good New Article”
I had a dog he slept a lot
And a cat who disappeared
I had a dog a different one
And this one always wanted to run

THE FACEBOOK GUY
My friend got a call the other day. The guy said “Hi, I’m from Facebook, the advertising department.”
My friend was watching TV, but was intrigued, he said, so he muted the TV.
“Listen,” the Facebook guy said, “there’s a guy in Fredericton Maryland, named Jimmy Johnson … Jimmy needs you to look at his thing.”
“What?” my friend said … Continue reading “Facebook’s Slow Death, and “YouEntertainment!””
