I talked with my brother recently and he was telling me how bored he was. He has been having some health-related proboems lately and he is very "down" on himself. He thinks that nobody would want him in his current (or any) position.

I don't think that this is a good attitude for him to have. It's borderline depression - at least it sounds that way to me.

He thinks that just because he doesn't have much money that he can't do anything. speaking as someone who hasn't had much money at times I know that you can be able to things without having to have money. I know he has a computer and he has internet access and he could certainly find something to do with that. In fact he likes being on the computer and there are surely enough things online that can keep one busy for awhile.

I don't like hearing him talk about how bored he is - like I said it sounds like bordeline depression. There is so much that he has to offer and there's so much out there (even if he only uses his computer to get there) to do and see.

I try to uplift his spirits but he is so determined that he "is what he is" that its like talking to a brick wall!

"Girlfriends" is one of my favorite TV shows and I was shocked when I found out that Jill Marie Jones who played Toni Childs on the program wouldn't be back on the show. My first instinct was that I thought the character was such a b*tch that she didn't want to return to the show or she just wanted too much money to return to the show.

Of course I'm getting the character and the actress mixed up - I tend to do that!

The rumors say that there was some sort of contract dispute and everybody involved seems to be so hush-hush on the matter but I have read some online sites that say that Miss Jones was "hoodwinked"!

The show just will not be the same without her!

"Mornings With Whoopi"

I mentioned before about how much I like and admire Whoopi Goldberg.

I now find out that she has a radio show called "Mornings With Whoopie" and I decided to listen to it online. I like hearing her talk and I like the comments that she makes but the music that is played on her radio show is just not the kind that I like.

So I see that I have a choice here. Either I just learn to be able to stand the music that she plays in order for me to listen to the rest of her show (which I like) - or its me not listening to her show at all.

Now while I was listening to her radio show online I found out that her show comes on a local station of mine - so I'm going to have to give that a listen!
