SECTION ONE - FROM THE EDITOR!
Winter is a upon us in Northern Hemisphere.
For our USA friends, this is a time when we
give thanks for all the blessing we have and
the abundance in our life. A time to share
and celebrate with families and friends.
Being that this is last Thanksgiving for this
millineum. Make it special. Give thanks and
spread love and joy among one another.
Remember those less fortunate this year and help
Have a great holiday and HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

Wholly unprepared, we embark upon the second
half of life. Or are there perhaps colleges
for forty-year-olds which prepare them for
their coming life and its demands as the ordinary
colleges introduce our young people to a knowledge
of the world? No, thoroughly unprepared we take
the step into the afternoon of life; worse still,
we take this step with the false assumption that
our truths and ideals will serve us as hitherto.
But we cannot live the afternoon of life according
to the programme of life's morning; for what was
great in the morning will be little at evening,
and what in the morning was true will at evening
have become a lie.

SECTION FOUR: INTERNET CHAT SOFTWARES
BY: Jeri Maier
What is it that draws people to stay up through the
night until the early morning hours (2, 3 am ). They
come from all over the world and gather together to
sing, talk, and laugh. Some come to argue, scream,
and yell at each other for no aparent reason other
than as a means of releasing stress. And yet others
come to create new friendships, build on commaraderies,
even flirt. There are those that also come searching
for their soul-mates, searching for spiritual answers,
or even to find the answers to life's many perplexing
Some of the chat communities offer all of the above
Text chat has been around for a long time but voice
Voice chat is a two-dimentional chat and is becoming more
popular, and very additive to many.
Video and voice chat rooms or private chats are yet another
means of communicating over the internet and are such a
WILD TERRITORY. These are three-dimentional, where you
see the person and interact with them visually as well
as voice and text chat.
Ladies should be cautious in using Video and Voice Chats.
Lots of unwanted and unsolicited graphics can be sent to
you very easily even if you are listed on a so-called

future delivery of such messages.

"The Serious Side of Life." Certainly an intriguing
title to a column. I'm sure we all wonder at times if there
is anything except a serious side of life. I really don't
remember when life had a frivolous side. I guess it did when
I was a kid, a college student; a young man who had not yet
tasted the bitterness that comes with the serious side of
I thought of this recently when I happened upon an old
interview on television. I believe it was filmed sometime
in the early 1990's. It had me riveted to the screen.
Mike Wallace, one of the most respected and watched
men in America, was being interviewed about a time in his
life when he was in a deep depression. He called it a
"clinical depression," but we all know the feeling --
clinical or not. Now, here was the anchor of 60 Minutes:
The man we saw front and center on our evening news every
weekday night and the man who broadcast from the battlefields
of Vietnam, telling us -- and all the world -- that he was
so depressed that he couldn't eat, sleep and had hid under
his covers for a portion of his adult years.
Why would he do this? What was he so afraid of that
he couldn't face the world? It couldn't have been money. His
salary at CBS was somewhere in the seven-digit range for sure.
It couldn't have been a lack of respect. Millions of viewers
tuned into hear his words every single night. What could it
have been? More importantly, why do so many men in the middle
of their lives feel their hearts and their souls sink to the
point that life seems to have no meaning? The answers to this
are all over the map.
Mike Wallace turned to pharmaceuticals to get him out
from under the covers and back to a productive life. He said,
"Sure, they have side effects. My sex drive isn't what it used
to be, but it's a price I would pay in a heartbeat." It sure
ain't easy being a man in the middle.
What are the answers? Well, there are those pharmaceuticals
that Mike Wallace talked about, but they do have a huge
trade-off to consider. There's psychotherapy as an option.
Lying on a shrink's couch and telling him how scared you are.
Telling him how frightened you are of dying. Hoping against
hope that he has the answers to get you back to life, back to
your family, back to your job and out from under the covers.
I guess that works for some. I don't know.
But I have an answer to this dreaded malady of fear and
depression. It is an easy answer, perhaps too easy. It seems
to work for me. I take each moment as it comes. What happened
to me yesterday is history. Tomorrow? Well that's still a dream.
All I have is NOW. I choose to be as positive and as good a
person as I can possibly be right NOW. What more can I do?
Sure, life will throw me some curves. My sister was diagnosed
recently with cancer. My marriage of a quarter century has
come to an end. All curves in the road of life. I must be
able to look myself in the mirror and know that I'm "trying"
to do the right and good thing every moment that I'm on this
good green Earth. How else could I possibly go on? How could
I face you? How could I face myself?
The alternative is to hide under my covers.
