    My mum was diagnosed with Parkinson’s last week and my aunt has it as-well. Apparently it is also genetic components too.

    I know what your saying and i wonder too but saying we should boycott the milk is so silly (not you the person on the news).

    You see i buy that one cos it is cheaper, when you count your penny’s and need to make it stretch sometimes you cannot buy more expensive or local brands. Id love to but that isn’t possible and id rather everyone in my family have cheap bread and milk then nothing. (we even by the long life before this cos it was cheaper but now we don’t have to).

    That is just another side of the fence i guess? 🙂

    I went to the tenancy tribunal today about the happenings here. Kevin showed up but his ex-wife Vanessa did not, which was actually the opposite of what I was expecting. then when we started swapping information I worked out why. Vanessa had told kevin i was to move in for a period of about 6-12months but had told me my lease was for 5yrs , which it is. Vanessa had told kevin the lease was for the house only, meanwhile I have a lease on the house and 90 acres. Vanessa told me Kevin was taking the water. Kevin did but because vanessa told him I didnt need it anymore and he should turn it off. she had also told each of us the other was hating each other and didnt want to talk to the other. Kevin was reacting to what he thought I had done and I was reacting to his reactions not knowing why he was behaving this way to me when all the time we had both been manipulated. I imagine this is why Vanessa would have been very scared of ending up in a courtroom where we were comparing notes.

    Just reading this back, what a bloody soap opera.:angry:

    so for now things are sorted between kevin and I ,although I don’t expect it to last and expect to be asked to move out soon. the good bit is that now I have room for negotiation.

    thanks for letting me vent.

    Wow, very interesting and good on your for venting hope you feel better BUT his actions towards you and your children are un excusable. I don’t care who told him what, you don’t try to run people off the road…..

    Sounds like he could be passing the buck a little too (even if there is a smidge of truth to his EX lieing to you both) he is still a grown man who needs to control himself and you had a lease no matter who it was with.

    Hope your feeling better 🙂

    But I do still enjoy following your posts and your perspective on your world. As you are entitled to share yours, so am I entitled to share mine. All the same, I hope we all can be lead by innocence and continue this discussion in open-mindedness. Again, I think we are looking at the same object from two different sides, and I like to think that our different perspectives are relatable for other readers in different ways.

    As an atheist, maybe I had no business posting in this thread in the first place. Yet the Tao is one philosophy that is compatible with my outlook. My world is about evidence, as much as we can perceive it. I can acknowledge that there are still mysteries about the (inner and outer) universe but I don’t find comfort in ‘beliefs’. I blog about atheist personal growth (among other things). I invite you to check out the link in my sig. I’m more than happy to share the nature of my personal search.

    That’s probably enough from me.

    Please do keep coming and say what you feel you need to. I appreciate it very much & thank you for your honesty.

    I am finding things i needed to and please anyone who wants to comment please do. But i do ask wilburandsally if you can keep your stiring away cos i want this to be a safe haven for people to open discuss how they feel on this, not somewhere it gets picked apart 🙂

    Thank you guys & gals for opening up and sharing your thoughts and experiences. 🙂

    I just wanted to say a big thank you to all who have taken time to reply. It honestly has helped me see things i wasn’t aware of and think of things in a different light.

    I belive one see’s things different to each other in a shape or form so its important to discuss if you feel you need to learn more, i belive you learn from asking those who have been there before you or are going down that path which is why i belive it is important to share. Somethings you cannot which is expected as somethings you need to find on your own which i can see that now.

    Amazingly enough i have had some big “uh ha” moments and i am finding what i have been searching for, for along time. I know that might be a little to deep and meaningful for some so ill stop there but i am enjoying seeing things from others views and learning.

    🙂 Thank you

    I would call myself atheist but I’m rather passionate about Taoist philosophy/teachings because they strike me as profoundly ecological. I was only thinking the other day about my skepticism about re-incarnation, while at the same time marvelling at the cycles of nature. Contradicting myself maybe?

    I think all through life there is contradictions? So maybe in the way your thinking is too complex? Just do what you do and act how you feel is appropriate to your beliefs? (for what its worth i think most things in life contradict each other!)

    I think sometimes if you over think something it becomes too complex?

    Like growing up a good lil christian girl i never questioned anything, it was only when a life changing thing happen when i was 15 that it gave me the opportunity to fully see things with open eyes not just the ones i was told to have. It opened up a whole new world for me, one that was confusing and exciting at the same time. I was able to belive what i wanted and it knew no name. It was like a bit of everything i guess?

    I guess sometimes you just need to float along until you find what it is that fits with you??

    I guess i like talking with others who are of similar belief system cos it provides healthy discussion and just a open forum if you know what i mean?

    Thanks again guys 😉

    Hell no! What a *insert every word under the sun that cannot say due to being to offensive!*

    Good on you for calling the police, they can be chareged for harasment!

    Ask for a protective order so they cannot intimidate you any more and tell the police bout the rent issue, you will more then likely get one which will help you big time!

    Im on the mid north coast and have 2 special needs kids one in school and one going next year. They have the best school in this area (even against others ideas, the “best school” didnt even call me back! So i found my own best school). My 2 boys have Autism, one is bright in some areas yet very behind in others (he can navagate a computer and internet so well it would put me to shame and i know alot lol yet his speach is terrible). They have been so good with him and id reccomend to school to anyone who wants a smaller school who encourages the child’s academic things.

    PM me if you want more info, its cheap to buy and rent here depending on what your after. (a house in my street is 145K and its a 1000sqm with a older home on it OR if you want fancy its higher but rent is good here too or you can look out more and get heeps land ect?).

    For what its worth i am so a country bumkin, i dislike the city soooooo much lol:blush:
