political representaion during the gathering
« on: July 09, 2009, 07:23:32 AM »
Hello everyone just a thought on how to make this gathering as productive as posible ,

I was going to post about congressman Barney Frank
I am sure anything to do with  HIV and AIDS are something he would like to suport in any way shape or form. Being how his personal life was plastered all over the news a while back . If we as HIV + people concerened with our rights to privacy. I am sure he can relate on many levels .

I would write to him to ask if he could attend but I would only do this after geting permision from all those that are going . Well I would hate to invite him then find myself confined in a psych word and unable to attend /

I would also not want to invite him and have him think it was date or anything ? do not get me wrong he loks like a nice guy I do not trust politicians ?  ( just jokeing )

He might also know how to get things done to make the avent as pleasnt and productive as posible .

all my best


I had mentioned some place about the either room in Boston General hospital and Zypher a while back had mentioned the place.

I had spent alot of time there as a child and used to run around that part of the building . some one else had mentioned secrets of the underworld. there is a secret passage through and around the either room. there is also some neet stair wells in that building the steps are canterlevered into the walls with out suports under them and our made from granite slabs . There are also passage ways under the streets between the buildings .

The shriners boston burns center is there . now that place I had spent some time in as a kid visting my brother.

enough about me lets talk about you ? what do you thinnk about me ?

( joke comon half to smile and laugh every once and a while )

all my best

A royal family from new england ? even if new england does not have any political system to speak of ?

The political system likes to say the Kenedies are the royal family form here ?

Did you know that part of the agreement the plymouth plantation had told Cheif Massasiotte that his family would rule the area for his help ? setting up and keeping plymouth safe ?

His oldest son went to oxford were he passed away ? More on that later ?

His second son well he was king Philop who had tried to unit new england against the colonists .

Then there was this indentured servent who was executed in plymouth for trumped up charges > the last thing he saw before his passing was Massasiotte standing next his daughter who was with child ???

If I were royalty my title would be Barron von idle berg > from the town that does not do anything > AKA lazy town ?

My cousin whos title is ARTHER the third ?

more on him some other time >

family names and camelot >

who was the indentured servant executed at plymouth ?

when the protestant afermation in england landed in BOSTON who do you think they were greated by < plymouth 1620 protestant afermation puritans landed in 1640 ?

(           ) jr

if you look at the map there are clues to this story in the names given the areas ?

open minded ness and fancifull stories are out of fasion ? even if they are based on truth >

this would make a good fiction story if it were not based in truth ?

Just practicing my fictional story telling about NEw England ?

I hope you enjoy

Having a guest speaker is not my call so I will leave that for someone else to comment on.

I just wanted to comment on this:

I remember some of your stories from the old forums, it took me awhile to understand them but when I finally did I found myself looking forward to your posts...some of the old crew will remember them. too...with a fondness I'm sure, I know Matty liked them.

If I were to go the way my mind works

I 'd dream up some fantasy about someone like Jenifer Lopez being there and she and  I discusing the how the world is goin to hell in a handbasket. In my mind all the girls I had known in my life before hiv would show up and say told you your free wheeling life style would get you in trouble ?

Most of them in my mind would also have the virus and they would blame me even though they had a free wheeling life style as well or else they would have never had anything to do with me >

I had found a freind from the service that had sent me a letter in my geer that was sent home minus my boots > SHE probably cept them and wore them herself .

I had thought it was funny how her hands werethe same size as mine and well she out ranked me ?

I had seen a paire of boot like the ones I had in the service that were my size but they were wron out , when I had left the ship the boots  Ihad were bran new .

she just retired at least that was what I had read on the military.com web page. sailors out working hard and playing hard living fast and dangirous , that was twenty somehting plus  years ago for me when I had gotten my honerable discharge from the service.

all that running around like a squirel on a wheel to protect a society based on greed did not make sense to me .

if this country wants to pull out of this finatial mess we have change our priorities from he or she with the most money is the best . to he or she  who can do the best with what they have os the best life to live and hopefully the most prosperious .

live long and prosper ? I think the prosper should be more important then the long life / not the profit as in the most money but the prosper like the most growth and the most knowledge and the best a person can be ?

sorry I am so summer minded right now thinking of if the girls I new in high school , they would all say he has HIV figures he was just to much for this world anyway ?? I had found my high school sweet heart she lives in arizona with her two children and husband my college freind she lives in her home town with herrealtives and husband and four kids , the yare all having verry prosperious lives , Me I had out thought myself right into an early long painfull life filled with illness > I guess I lost the game of life after all <

all my best

I would certainly like to meet and talk with Barney Frank....he is an open and apparently easy person to get to talk with.....I am sure he would have some great stories about the situation in the Congress trying to get various measures passed...I vote ...invite him....

I like Barney too, but not sure I want to invite him.
Obviously, I'll go with whatever is decided -- but quite frankly, the last thing that I want to do on vacation is listen to a politician blow smoke up my............................................

I don't care who they are, they all speak in a different language.
