Guest Rachan Posted February 9, 2012 Share Posted February 9, 2012 There's been a bit of chatter lately about all of the icky things that can happen on this site. But there really are some wonderful people here.You kind of have to be here & get to know the personalities to understand. When I speak to my girlfriends about some of the people here, they give me the same look people gave Jimmy Stewart in the movie "Harvey" when he spoke of his Giant invisible Rabbit friend.....They don't get it. I wanted to give a big public "Thank You!" to our very own Angelina,who saved my old heine from having to enter a seedy neighborhood. My daughter is in the "gifted" program (La Te Da) at school.She is in middle school & this is her last year. She was required to write a Thesis paper. She choose mental health. Specifically, depression & addictions. When I received the paper stating the requirements,& one of hers was visiting a crisis center, I thought "Oh Nooooooooo!" I pm'd John & asked him if he would be willing to be interviewed by my daughter,as an expert in that field. He wasted no time in getting back to me (He demanded a ridiculous amount of money, but I eventually weaseled his price down by offering some old questionable photos of myself ) (just kidding) Actually, he very graciously said it would be no problem & took the time out of his saturday to answer my daughters questions. It was VERY interesting (& a little bit scary) reading. She even went so far to ask what was the most memorable case he has ever treated.He supplied her with two stories. One a little strange (the kids loved it) & one very heartbreaking. (which as a parent, made me cry) As a result....my daughter was the only one to receive a perfect score.. (This was district wide...involving four schools) More importantly, I didn't have to run the risk of being carjacked in some slum. So a big public shout out for all of the help of our own Professor Booyah!!! You Rock!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
