i think it would teach the world a little compassion for each other, instead of so much greed and aggression.
Remember the show Quantum Leap?

yup, barbara. it's sorta like that, but you feel and think what they experience all day, not just your conscience in thier body. a kind of walking a mile in their shoes idea (no, not so your a mile away and they have no shoes... )

I wish that for one day I could go shopping, not have to look at how much things cost, & just buy them. Not so much for clothes & things like that, but for food & things I can use to cook with. If I can't have that wish, then I wish that I knew when my kids grow up that they will be well prepared for the world that's waiting for them. That's one wish that I know what a lot of love & hard work I can accomplish.

I know what you mean Crewsk. I am sick of having to keep track of how much everything I put in my shopping cart costs and worrying about whether we can really afford it.

Come to one of the mediterranean countries, Wasabi!! I think they are the ones who invented bidets, it is installed practically in every house hold, though I never acquired the habit to utilize it, Cris, among just about every Italians, consider it as an absolute necessity of life!

Not sure whether it's pushing my luck posting this here but I think my big wish might be about to come true. For some months now we've been humming and hahing over buying a run-down farm in Spain. We'll have a really hard two or three years to start with but I hope - fingers crossed - that on Monday we're going to pay the deposit.

I have a pretty wonderful life. The only thing that I can think to wish for right now is that Paul could retire and that we could move to the Mexican condo. It'll be finished in March and we're getting so excited to see it and stay in it for the first time!!
