I'm not too bad at it at times. I'll give advice if it's something I really know about or think I can help. I do agree with Ray though about the cats ! Same advice there from me ! :)

No. I know nothing and no one has ever taken my advice. My advice to myself is worthless.

Now THAT is a good new word. A group of people brought together for their love of fermented apple juice.

Sheesh, my eyes are at half staff---I didn't even see it when I first came back to see what your talking about.

On the other hand, if it's a new word, perhaps I will come up with an appropriate definition.

Come to think of it Ray, I can't beat your definition: "small groups of people who come together by their shared love of fermented apple juice."

I've never been able to get any of my kids to take advice so I learned quickly not to give it. Of course, they're all grewed up now.

If I gave Mrs Didge any unsolicited advice I'd probably get a "Yeah, yeah" so I don't go there either.

Then I found Blurtit and everybody here has been awfully kind. Makes me feel wanted. Thank you, Blurters.

We like your advice column. "Dear Didge..."

Didge Doo commented
Thank you both. Happy's comment reminds me of a time I picked up an old newspaper at work, opened at random, and pretended to read a column. It went like this:

"Dear Abby. My husband is a sex maniac. He's at me all the time. I never get any rest. Please help. (signed) Exhausted Wife. (P.S. Please excuse the wobbly writing."

Twenty minutes later one of the guys came over and said, "Where was that Dear Abby column? I've been through that paper three times and couldn't find it."

I think I can only offer My Personal Perspective on the information provided. Having not personally experienced the topic of discussion or fully understand how the asker is perceiving their question/predicament, I can only answer with what I "think" might be going on.

Sometimes this is merely a good fit or even a facet of understanding that might have alluded the asker at the moment, but now is somehow clear.

Having outlined my personal limitations, I do the best I can and hope for the best.

As others have stated, if a person has a problem and shares that with me, I have the opportunity to decide if they are merely venting or they want actual advice. Sometimes, just listening is what they need. Based on my life experiences, I just try to be as open as I can on what I've gone through in the hopes that it helps someone else.
