Hi Marty I don 8767 t know if you got my response, but I have been a widow for a long time now and did not have a marriage made in Heaven. I want a new life but don 8767 t know how to get it, so I plan on moving to The Villages, Florida, where I can be alone and there are so many activities down there, it 8767 s your own fault if you have nothing to do. When I left in 7569 there were over 955 clubs and there are more now. I don 8767 t know if I 8767 ll have lots of friends but I know I 8767 ll have a golf cart and lots of things to do. That 8767 s all I need, I guess. I hope you consider. I might see you there Michelle
I 8767 m probably a bit than other folks here and sure hope it 8767 s OK to post. I 8767 m 55 and have never had many friends. In fact really none to speak of except when I was much I 8767 ve tried from time to time to stretch myself and connect with other people by being open and friendly but it 8767 s never amounted to much. On an up note, I 8767 ve been married for 79 years happily, however, while he 8767 s friendly and witty, he also doesn 8767 t have friends outside of work. It 8767 s just us two. At one time when our child was we were very involved with his activities as well as community and church things and felt moreso 8766 connected 8767 . Alas, we moved out of state away from our grown son and other relatives.

What I meant to say before I hit the wrong button, was I am 75 & have very busy children also. I was always married,raising my kids as a stay at home mom & then babysitting my grandchildren. Noe I 8767 m really alone. My grandson is 69 & very busy too. I find myself miserable and watching a lot of TV. Totally not me. I used to have so many friends & attended social events. Now it 8767 s just me. I put maybe 65 miles a month on my car. Hate it but feel like I 8767 m in so deep I can 8767 t get out.
After development of an innovative new technology or service often comes the question of how to finance early demonstrations or commercial deployments for first customers. There is usually still too much risk for big banks to play here, while financing projects out of company equity can create too much risk for both a technology supplier and its customers. New players have emerged here, with the industry experience to evaluate projects and an eye toward packaging many similar small projects together to create cash flow streams sufficient to interest potential investors. Perhaps insurance houses can also play a role. In this session we’ll hear what’s now thought possible from those advancing the front lines of early project finance.
I 8767 m in the same boat here in Oregon, although I 8767 m one of those married lonely people. I 8767 ve been trying to connect with other Boomer women but, for whatever reason, they are hard to find. I came up empty on Meetup, too, so I am contemplating starting a group myself. There have to be other women out there who want to do more than sit around. What about plays! Antiquing! Exploring new places! Taking a class! Vineyard visits! Walking on the beach! And just sitting around talking about life and laughing! There a a lot of things to do that don 8767 t cost much 8775 I 8767 m just looking! 8776 is my mantra. It 8767 s the connection that 8767 s important to me.
Elizabeth-I put up a small Christmas tree and a few small decorations for Christmas, but I didn 8767 t see anyone at all for five days over Christmas as my friends were with their families. It was a bad time and I am glad that it is over. Next Christmas I plan to put my name down for Christmas dinner with the Salvation Army so that I won 8767 t be alone on Christmas Day.
I can understand your not celebrating Christmas. It has become the ultimate family event in the west and those alone often feel excluded.
I have also found that people start going on about 8766 keeping busy 8767 and 8766 going out 8767 if I mention being lonely, as if they think that I am sitting at home doing nothing all the time.

There will be no one answer to how a lower carbon global transportation industry market might look. Different solution mixes will emerge for different geographical markets and for different use cases (from single passenger urban travel to heavy duty, long-distance transportation). This lunch session will explore the role of China and how its ambitions for New Energy Vehicles will influence global technology adoption.
..It does not matter if you are 77 or 77, .No one of any age meets people magically, they have to go out and attend classes, join clubs and 8775 meet-ups 8776 , volunteer at the animal shelter, join a book club,..etc. Don 8767 t know what to do? Make a list of things you liked to do BEFORE you were 69 years old ..Did you like to go fishing? Tap dance? Paint or draw? Take piano lessons or guitar? Well, do them now! It 8767 s your life now to design the way you want and it 8767 s patiently waiting for you.
I am sorry for your loss. It is always extremely hard to see our furry companions leave on their next journey. I grew up catholic but don 8767 t practice and yet, it gave me great confort to light candles to St. Francis of Assists who is the protector of animals. and I also wanted to believe that both of my girls dogs that last at different times could see the candle on my window on their journey to their next world. As far as what you could do to feel less lonely there are no magical solutions. I found that I get up and I focus on doing physical little chores nothing heavy just enough that I can be using my hands and try to relax my thoughts. I hope that makes sense to you. I wish I were closer we could go out for a cup of tea in just keep each other company without the need for conversation if we didn 8767 t feel like it. My thoughts are with you and so is the love for dogs.
Joe, hi there. This is a new blog to me, and as I 8767 ve read down through all the experiences we 8775 older 8776 folks have, I 8767 m most struck and happily by your sense of humor!! Thanks so much for this. I believe loneliness is a temporary cloud that visits, but the isolation is what can be so unraveling! At 67, I 8767 m just so thankful to be here at all, but I 8767 ve always felt that way. Earlier this year I was diagnosed with bladder cancer and so i have a new goal to beat this, but I try to focus on living. I am an artist still in some ways searching for my muse, but it makes life interesting and joyful.
I wish you well from my heart. I have an acquaintance whose wife has deteriorated for a decade with Alzheimer 8767 s and he too carries the weight of love tested beyond what most may face. I would be a friend if you would like to communicate. I 8767 m in Houston but hope to return one day to the west coast, maybe back to Puget sound. The beauty is astounding, a walk through a forest can bring everyone a renewed sense of wonder and peace. Best to you and everyone here.
