Field AP & Lawson J (2003) Children who were told about fictitious monsters by adults developed irrational fears and phobias which impacted their subsequent mental health. ***Call me if you want someone to check under your bed before you retire. That is a very interesting take on the story Maddy told. One thing you might want to consider is context. In what context where the children who developed irrational fears told about fictitious monsters? Was it in an empowering manner such as the way Maddy's parents presented it to her? Or was it in a fear inducing manner, such as a way of getting children to obey by empty threats of vicious creatures or people who do bad things to bad kids? "Eat your peas or the boogeyman is going to get you!" "If you don't clean your room, monsters come and eat the socks they find under your bed!" From what I read, Maddy's dad gave the power into Maddy's hands and imagination. He limited the area in which "monsters" could roam, keeping them in the confines of the door. Maddy may not remember, but it could have easily been a way for her dad to alleviate the fear that most kids eventually develop of monsters, possibly from a sound or odd light shining through the window. I never told my child about monsters, but many kids shows and books have them. His active imagination lead him to think some unknown thing was going to do him harm in the night. His favorite toy was a stuffed duck, so we developed a routine of having "Ducky" check under the bed and in the closet for the "monsters". Ducky ate anything that didn't belong and then they slept soundly. I did the same thing Maddy's dad did; he allowed her to use her imagination but pointed it in a different more positive direction. It’s all in the mind of the beholder really. The negative minded will take only negative away from the story.

I think it would be wonderful for you to "plot" with your granddaughter to delight her little sister and to eventually carry that out into the wild. There is another bit of whimsy I do bring to my surroundings. I carry red stick-on reflective discs in the glove compartment of my car. When I encounter deer crossing signs, I sometimes get out of the car and stick a disc to the tip of the deer's nose. I've been doing this for nearly 40 years, all across the US. I have no idea whether anyone's ever noticed the Rudolphs. It doesn't matter. http://www.amazon.com/Gear-Gremlin-GG321-Adhesive-Reflector/dp/B00CCE63X0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1451508231&sr=8-1&keywords=round+red+reflectors I do like that those reflectors are made by "Gear Gremlin". ;-). Well, Maddy, either you have passed through my town, or you have a creative kindrid soul out there somewhere.

  4. Well, Maddy, when I said last night that you are one of the finest sorry tellers I've ever had the pleasure to meet, I wasn't just telling stories. Thank you for the beautiful stories, not just the ones you shared here, but for all the stories you've shared since I've met you. And thank you for being part of the fuel of my imagination. Happy 2016 to you and Mac as well.

Come join us! http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/The%20Great%20Fissure/30/130/70 
  7. Located in the infamous Wastelands of Second Life, perched precariously near the edge of the Great Fissure, is a tiny parcel of barren dusty land. Old pallets long ago stripped of their prized consignment sit atop whiskey barrels forming a makeshift stage. A huge rusting ancient lighted sign spells out the name of this place “Nevermore”. When the sun sets over the Great Fissure, strange sounds fill the air, foreign melodies and vocals echo across the Great Fissure. The residents know it is Friday. Warriors and mutants make their way across the arid landscape, pausing in their war making, their scavenging, their quests for dominance and survival as they find their way to Nevermore. It is Femme Fatale Friday and the make shift stage comes alive as the ladies share their music with the resident of the Wastelands. Tonight April 10, 2015 DJ Rapa Ton spins an wide-ranging mix of electric tunes live from Osaka Japan from 5-7pm slt. Singer, song writer, guitarist Nance Brody then takes the stage to share her unique style of passionate lyrical storytelling from 7-8pm slt. Vocalist Lillie Woodells follows with an eclectic mix of smoldering, soul searing, songs from 8-9pm slt. Singer, song writer, guitarist Senjata Witt closes down the house with her commanding, dynamic, and almost violent playlist, leaving the stage covered in grit and blood from 9-10pm slt. Don’t be afraid, we only bite when provoked. Come see what it’s all about. We’ll be waiting. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlif...issure/9/90/70
  8. Susy!!! Hugs ♥♥♥♥ It's so good to see you sissy!

The only people that come off the top of my head for example are Asri Falcone, Ansch Chung, and I forgot his name, but he was a huge driving force in the sex industry in SL. Also, i'm taking about up-to-date avatars. Not people who were famous in 2007 for example. Thank You There are many incredibly talented residents in Second Life who share what they do freely. It would depend on what interests you. I don't know if they would consider themselves celebrities, but there are many well known live performers, many who have regular gigs.

  13. Keli Kyrie wrote: Peace be with you Quinn, you know I love you with all my heart. I do not see how I can judge the things as you seem to be asking us to judge in your OP. Who I am to say who is good or bad? What makes me qualified to judge anyone. My Master ate with sinners, talked with sinners, spent all his time with sinners, went out of his way to find people of low moral fiber. In the end he was not killed by the sinners but by people that thought they had high moral fiber. They killed the Lord of Truth thinking they were doing a favor for God. Here is a story I would like you to consider before you judge anymore. One day my Lord came to eat in the house of someone with very low moral character, character so low some of his followers did not even what to enter the house. He told this story. It's about common sense, Keli. Since you're bringing up religion Paul said at 1Cor 15:33 "Do not be misled: Bad company corrupts good character". He is not telling you to judge people, he's telling you that you need to watch who you run with. Those aren't my words. King James version puts it this way: "Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners." I don't think Quinn is asking any of us to judge anyone. I know her well enough to know that she wouldn't do that. I don't think it's fair to her to make it sound as if that is what she was doing.

The new one ~Fenrir~ is wonderful, now that I've got all the settings & preferences about where they need to be. My dsl connection is slow, tho, so I still have lag but I'm finally seeing textures & shadows & fine detail the way I should & it looks gorgeous! I spent mostuv the weekend working on my Winamp playlists. I didn't loose any music when my old computer died but I did loose the way it was all organized, so I mostly worked on that this weekend, w/ SL running in the background. Saturday evening I attended a fundraiser for a Parkinson's cure, DJed by my sister Dream Decosta ~the QueeN of RocK~ & had a wonderful time! She raised lots of L$ for a worthy cause & her tune selection was masterful .. as always! The dance was supposed to be formal & knowing my hippie ways Dream's partner & my dear friend Blue gave me a gorgeous gown to wear. I didn't have time to change into it tho so just went as I was .. wearing a kinda sorta semiformal outfit. It was okay tho .. I'm use2 being underdressed in SL! LOL It was late for me & I was sleepy but made it thru Dream's set & had a great time! Then on Sunday morning I was getting ready to go to DJ Messalina's weekly gospel & blues set @ Riverside Blues club but got an invitation from Hippie Bowman to attend a rezz day party instead. Some of the ppl there I knew from HippieStock 2, some from this forum & some I didn't know. Everyone was friendly & the sim gorgeous! The wonderful Lillie Woodells provided live entertainment. Her voice is luscious & the tunes she chooses are outstanding. Lillie is a superb talent! Then things died down in SL & I worked on my playlists until midafternoon when I got a notice that Rhia Yuhara was performing @ a new ballroom venue called Stork Club. This gave me the chance to wear the very nice gown my sis had given me. Rhia was wonderful, as always, & the hostesses gracious & nice. 2 or 3 couples & 7 or 8 women in gorgeous gowns were dancing alone as Rhia sang. I loved it! ..but where were all the guys? Watching football or playing WoW I suppose. Come on guys .. I woulduv loved to have had a dance partner! LOL I share this cuz I want ppl to know what a nice time I had in SL this past weekend. The music was great, the grafix superb & the friendship & convo interesting & funny. & it was all for free! (Yes, I did contribute to the Parkinson's cure.) What more could anyone ask for ?!? Jeanne Hugs Jeanne!! It was a wonderful pleasure to meet you! I'm so glad you were able to come to the breakfast party Thank you for your kind (if not inaccurate) words.. hehe Lil
  15. You are right Griffin, it is my choice. Just because I don't look at it, does not mean it does not affect me in some way. It's kind of like I explained to the principal at my son's school.. Just because the teacher doesn't see it, doesn't mean it's ok. I am not an unreasonable woman. I've tried to talk to each of those individuals who have been involved. I've been met with varying responses all negative. Contrary to the belief of some, I don't hate anyone, or expect anyone to hate others. I hate bad behavior. I deal with it every day. I hate unprovoked attacks, which is what I've been faced with here.
