It’s All Mishegoss — Thursday #109

When it comes to news, especially bad news there is plenty of it as you know. We spend a great deal of time looking for the other stories; you know the ones that are interesting, happy, and not so terrible.

The thing is it’s hard, but we find them and share them with you, at least most of them. We don’t want to flood you with all of them, not there is a bunch, but we spread them out so sometimes you may get an older story from a week or two ago, but it’s a good one!


On another note. We were thinking about themes the other day as in themes for each day we publish the newsletter. After talking about it between ourselves we decided that the theme idea sucked. There would be no way for us to know what themes you liked, and we didn’t want to bore you with our themes.

The only thing we would like to try is on Wednesday’s giving you a story or two from history. Like we did yesterday.


We mentioned last week about a workbook I wrote along with a lecture series I ran years ago and how we’re going to add some of those tips via this newsletter. Well we still are, we’re just figuring out when and how.

I would also like to share tips on living with ADHD as I have a very extensive life with it. For over 5o years I’ve lived with ADHD and for most of that time except for one year when I was first diagnosed I lived without drugs. When I tell other about that they are amazed.

We’re not sure yet the mechanics of doing that either, but we believe it’s worth trying since more and more adults are being diagnosed with ADHD. I bet a few of you could use tricks in keeping things going day to day?For now that’s it. Have a great Thursday. See you again Sunday.

Till then,


Mark & Patti
