2007/5/17 birdie99 on 43things wonders how gene roddenberry came to be the genius he was.
birdie99 thinks we can all agree that his star trek series wrought as many miracles as did samuel finley breese morse and his telegraph
did. perhaps we can all follow the biography of roddenberry to a better world. computers were part of his future. cars only appeared in ancient history. with hand held communicators that closely resemble the cell phones of today, landing parties simply beamed down to the landing site and transmitted co-ordinates for the return journey. weapons could be set on stun. this looks a little like the tazr guns that cops use with mental patients. of course they sometimes kill by accident because no one knows the complete physiology of the subject.
birdie99 loved the original star trek but when star trek the next generation came along it had a new gimmick. holodek.
birdie99 is unclear as to the correct spelling. holodek. it will do until correction can be made. holodek. where the crew found recreation. this computer re-created scenes from earth that crew members found reassuring. far out! 6 years ago
2007/5/17 birdie99 on 43things now has more dimensions than ever to deal with.
birdie99 remembers that before the olympic committee decided that london would be the 2012 venue, there was a fever in dallas texas and houston texas to host the 2012 olympics. she was not in the habit of thinking so far in the future.
she then began to and that is when ideas of time travel got reinforced by history lessons learned at pbs.org where the corporation for public broadcasting the the national science foundation were close partners. closed partners?
birdie99 is grateful for the help of pbs but as robert a heinlein put it gratitude also contains a measure of resentment too.
birdie99 sees the sixties now through the lens of the poor.
poor black folk who rode mass transit. who were looked down on by whites and even by some blacks. rosa parks and MLK and countless others lived and died for human rights and for dignity they were denied.

2007/5/17 birdie99 on 43things wants to talk about 1954/5/17
and the supreme court ruling on brown v the board.
birdie99 was far removed from any discussion of equality. 9
years old and her world consisted of university christian church sunday school and the horse shoe club and her home on pershing just off clover lane. saturdays she spent with her daddy and trips included the drugstore and the seven eleven plus riding horse back from the horse shoe club to the home of don takes.
1999/9/3 when birdie99 was besieged on all sides, a doll from the seven eleven was placed in her hands. a delayed birthday gift inspired by an
absent father whose spirit would not forsake his needy daughter even in death.
1994/5/19 jacqueline lee bouvier kennedy onassis dies and birdie99 takes a vow of poverty. extreme wealth such as the kennedys had was clearly out of reach, but she had observed the power of a spirit like mother teresa and decided poverty would be her path too. it cannot always be just about money. that is and was her mantra. mother teresa called us to stop murdering babies in their mothers wombs.

birdie99 took birth control pills and weight control pills
so that makes birdie99 a drug
user. prescription drugs are still drugs. alcohol and pot
are mind altering drugs so who is to say birth control pills and weight control pills were any better than street drugs? 6 years ago
2007/5/17 birdie99 on 43things is not a doctor not a nurse. birdie99 is only a failed wife and three times a mother. so what does she know about health and healing?
birdie99 is a survivor of the killings of the 1960s and the attack on manhattan island and attack on texas families by social workers. in the interest of the children cps removes them from their families and casts them adrift in a sea of inadequate courts and foster homes. birdie99 knows this first hand because her last born son is proof.
birdie99 knows about tulsa oklahoma and its meth orphans
and little bricks in newark new jersey. birdie99 will use this forum to tell the tale of ineptitude and fiduciary irresponsibility on the bricks of camp bowie fort worth tex.
birdie99 can attest to the fact that there is a hierarchy of disability. special needs kids are treated separately and unequally by the isd.
birdie99 sympathizes with the parents whose kids committed crimes and wound up behind bars for the rest of their lives. maybe some of those kids would have become doctors or lawyers or special education teachers if only better decisions were made.
birdie99 knows how moonshot 1969 was supposed to redeem our society for all its nsf checks to the negroes. MLK
reminded us on 28 august 1963.

birdie99 will study more about the political climate from 1929 to 1948 because these are years that affected her life but whose events transpired before she gained consciousness of self.
birdie99 remembers her teacher at rcia rites of christian initiation for adults, asking what her earliest memories of life were. perhaps before she attended school, her earliest recollections were of being on the floor on all fours. memories of crawling and of sometimes having a tummy ache. 6 years ago
2007/5/16 birdie99 on 43things remembers 1958 as the year gran died and sue graduated from arlington heights high.
birdie99 was not so much in the spotlight as were daddy and sue. daddy was doing well with the b-58 hustler bomber and sue was off to college driving the vauxhall. odd name and even odder car. we added air conditioning and that cause it to vapor lock. first up close and personal experience for us with car trouble. foreign car with equipment added that malfunctioned frequently.
birdie99 had not attained 15 years of age in 1958 and no driving lessons were considered til about 1959. it was a rite of passage for all the kids to get learners permits and start practicing by age 15. at school birdie99 took lessons from a coach at another high school. but on her own with daddy to teach her she learned how the car
operated on private property.
the general dynamics recreation association park.
birdie99 had a horse named duchess buttons but the mare named princess pat and the filly named miss ditto were not with the family by 1958. 6 years ago
2007/5/16 birdie99 on 43things remembers telepresence created by her husband rocky and how it only took a portable reel to reel tape recorder to bring the two together at the stable
where her mare foaled on 21 june 1968. junebug was the foal and sissie was the mare.
birdie99 has often been disappointed by gadgets but the motion picture camera and the reel to reel tape player never let her down. years later in 1998 the films and the camera and the projector and the screen would be lost.
birdie99 rejoices that as of today the reel to reel tape recorder is still with her.
birdie99 knows now that as the year 1968 came to an end, back home in fort worth her daddy was dying. dying and leaving all of us who loved him.
birdie99 cries now for both her parents. crying for dad
and mom because she is a child
inside. she is a lonely child. 6 years ago
2007/5/16 birdie99 on 43things remembers 1978 as a good year.
although a relationship had ended sadly in november 1977 and she and holly were hit by a truck on icy roads in january of 1978, by march she was encouraged by a new job at transport life. starting in policy accounting, she had now moved over to policy service the correspondence area. her new boss was dorothy isley.
birdie99 knows that women need mentors the same as men do. we need an older person on the job who cares whether or not we succeed. dbi was one such spirit. correspondence with policy owners and telephoning agents honed my communication skills. unfortunately, in 1992 when i was a victim of domestic violence, no amount of communication skills could save me and my sons from unintended consequences.
birdie99 recall 1978 as the time she negotiated for her own toyota corolla silver gray and one hundred percent hers.
birdie99 realizes that at the park and go lot she and her car were safe. her mistake lay in deciding to ride the bus with people who had no cars. people like randy rhone who would do anything and feign affection to gain access to
a car. 1978-1986/4/24 the life of that machine. poor ole car. 6 years ago
2007/5/16 birdie99 on 43things remembers 1988 as the year that holly had her appendicitis.
birdie99 thinks it was about this time in may of 1988 that holly became ill at school and we took her to dr jay murphy and dr jay murphy diagnosed the problem and sent her to cooks childrens hospital.
birdie99 remembers that in 1988 cook childrens hospital was located next door to the child study center where in 1985 randy and jean rhone had gone for genetic counseling with dr kukelich about davey.
now randy keeps davey at home while jean stays at hospital with holly. soon graduation will come and her father will come and high school will be behind her.
birdie99 is glad there was no
math test required for hollys diploma to be granted. tests like that might have derailed her emotionally for a long time. and yet fifty years after sputnik, why are 206 graduating seniors deficient in math? 6 years ago
2007/5/16 birdie99 on 43things wishes to record the date that she was bamboozled. 1998/9/16.
that was the day that christine petrune of cps child protective services conned her into leaving donald victor rhone at christshaven.org temporarily. jean herndon desperately needed help from somewhere and christine petrune and renee schulte both pretended to be on her side.
birdie99 knows in retrospect that she was bamboozled and that renee and christine knew full well don would never go home to be with his disabled brother and his alcoholic aunt and his very elderly grandma
and his battered wife of a mother ever again.
birdie99 got a new appreciation of the way social workers operate. judging amy featured a mother who was a social worker tyne daley and a daughter who was a judge.
birdie99 becomes aware through pbs of women and sufferage and women and civil rights. 1920 women get the vote. 1607 the colony at jamestown is founded
and 1863 emancipation of slaves. 1973 roe v wade.
1954/5/17 brown v the board of education topeka kansas.

birdie99 cries herself to each night feeling the pain of so many tortured souls. jim grey made her aware of the disabled not dead yet and buddy adams made me aware that prisons are full of able bodied capable men and women whose behavior is anti-social. behavior. acting. it all comes down to how we behave how we act. 6 years ago

7 july 1999 lost donnie. 26 november 1999 lost jim grey.
birdie99 loved jim grey as a brother. she saw him in person two times. the first time his dresser/driver buddy adams had him in the back of a van in a power wheelchair and the 2nd time birdie99 saw him in bed.
birdie99 remembers the way he would call on the phone and talk and the way one night he interviewed trula vicki crotty
by telephone. interviews were something he was very good at.
birdie99 recalls that jim grey said he interviewed jfk and he had the interview on audio tape somewhere. he was hoping to get an interview with chris reeve when his brother david presented a portrait to him.
birdie99 does not know if the meeting with superman took place but she remembers that when buddy adams went to jail,
jim grey essentially went to jail too. buddy had known how to get jim up and bathe and shave and dress him. then he could load jim up in the van
and take him where ever.
birdie99 is acutely aware that life in the 21st century centers around transportation.
mechanical transport replaced animal transport and now the gasoline companies can charge any amount they want for gas.
