A Guide to the Best of My Blog


I’ve created hundreds of posts since December of 2009 when I started this blog following my heart transplant (which occurred on November 23, 2009).  The posts are mini-essays on a number of topics, and I’ve tried to tie them together by adding a note at the end of each referring the reader to “Related Posts.”  Since there are a number of recurring subjects, it occurred to me that it might be a good idea to post a guide that organizes the blog according to topics, and what follows is my attempt to do this.

I want to thank the thousands of readers who take the time to read my blog.  It’s been terrific fun to write it and I plan to continue doing so until illness or death prevents me from continuing.  When I do die I’ve given a final post to my husband, David Vargo, to put up on the internet so my readers will know it’s all over.  Until then, I particularly enjoy hearing from people with thoughts, questions, or stories about my blog posts, and it’s thrilling to learn that I may have helped some readers facing various complex difficulties such as coming out, missing promissory notes in mortgage foreclosures, a growing non-belief in religious ideas, etc.  My email address remains dglswhaley@aol.com.  If anyone finds errors in the dates, etc., below, please let me know and I’ll correct them. 

Here is the guide:

  1. Any suggestion: as an injured fireman I need the support of my Union. The City continues to neglect in complying with State laws providing benefits and treatment. The court lacks enforcing these shortfalls. I am more in the time of need and I have supplied the Union a letter from the Board and two e-mail confirmations by board members that I in deed am a board member in good standing thus deferring my dues until I return to duty or retire. I have found that I've not been allowed to vote thus finding the union states I am not a member despite the proof provided. Now they refuse to respond after stating that they will review the past board's and president's decision only to ignore my request's as to what decision has been made. My City is manipulating my case unethically and the union of which I supported for years in a time of good also becomes part of this horrific puzzle.
    ANY Suggestion of how to compose a letter that may get thier full attention to resolve and provide thier due diligence?
    Please help!

  2. I can't answer specific legal questions as I'm not admitted to the bar in your state. I did publish a blog, see above, on how to compose a legal threat letter. You need an attorney and if you can't afford one, try the Legal Aid Society. Good luck with this.
