And now, possibly, we may be looking at an end to it all, if recent medical pronouncements are to be believed.
    The market research project that impacted me the most was in-home interviews with HIV patients. They ranged in age from late teens to my age. It was heart-rending to hear each story. The older ones got the diagnosis and assumed it to be a death sentence, so some just spent all their money and their assets and then...they lived, and they are now alive, but poor.

    The young ones either take it with a cavalier attitude, because of the promise of a relatively "normal" life, but then there's the stigma which affects them all. I spoke with males and females, black and white, young and old, and I often wanted to cry in my car driving home.

    Haven't seen any lately to rave about but I can't listen to Elton John without getting misty-eyed. He was one of my little brother's fave. Coincidentally, my brother died of AIDS in 1991 at the age of 31 when there was still a huge stigma and I was his caretaker. He wanted to live so much. The stories I could tell about his illness and treatment would make quite a movie.

    I adore old movies (TCM) and yesterday I had the whole day to myself, so I watched "Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House," followed by "All About Eve."
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    Toy Story 4 Saturday afternoon. No kids - we love Pixar and aren't ashamed! I wasn't really expecting much, but DH wanted to see it. I was pleasantly surprised. Kind of a slow start, but eventually got going. I did not see that ending coming, but it makes sense.

    I'm watching The Investigation - A Search for the Truth in Ten Acts, a dramatic reading of the Mueller report.

    John Lithgow does a bang-up job as Trump.

    I'm glad he was able to bounce back from the 'Hillary and Clinton' play. It had to close due to lack of sales, even after tickets were dropped to $2.00.

    It doesn’t seem like political panegyrics or denunciations generally do well at the box office. Especially when the subject is still living. I think it speaks well of our country that such stuff seems to be of such limited interest.

    That reminds of a note George Bernard Shaw once sent Churchill, inviting him to bring a friend to the opening of his new play “If you have one”. Churchill replied that he was busy but would come to the second night “If you have one”.

    Grandson and I saw Toy Story 4 and LOVED it. I think it's the best one in the series.
