Since activity here has been below low... maybe a few Oasies™ may find inspiration in this TED lecture:

When did you first realize...

...that you might be gay?

Here's an article that should be quite uplifting... as well as calling forth not just a few smiles:

(2) Click "Edit"
(3) At bottom of the page, select your correct current time under "Time Zone"

Welcome back Oasies!

It's not clear as yet how well Oasis has been restored. It certainly has had one very long week to rest!!!

Hopefully Jeff will duck in soon (if he's survived Sandy) and update us all on the status.

Anyway... get to work on all those neglected Journals that you've been keeping in abeyance. :)


Many in NYC are currently without power. It's quite likely that this is the situation facing Jeff... dunno!

The ducks are gonna get you...

This is just too precious to not be shared.

This, the product of a 14-year-old's mind that has been totally "corrupted" by homeschooling (New Zealand):


Are you worried yet?

Are you embarrassed by the BSofA? Disgusted, maybe?

Almost-Eagle Scout denied award because he is gay


I, for one, am quite sad at how a once-admired organization has now been taken over by radicals dispensing such a hateful position!

Here's a petition you might consider signing:

Dating and Fear in the Age of HIV

This article in Huffington Post serves as a perfect complement to the discussion provoked in response to my journal of 8 September http://www.oasisjournals.com/2012/09/posted-strictly-as-a-cautionary-tal... :


You'll have no difficulty in identifying my comment/question at end (not as elph). :)

Much good advice!

btw: I must learn how to create hyperlinks!

Posted Strictly as a Cautionary Tale...

I wanted to scream when I read this news item this morning... but no one would have heard me. Silent tears, however, were shed:


Two very unwise decisions are reported here. I desperately hope that no Oasis member will ever find him/herself in such a vulnerable situation.

15 years old! :(

A possible "cure" for Oasis' summer doldrums?

The Nature of Nicholas

This is a movie which I suspect few of you have seen.

You may have noticed!

For the past 48 hours Oasis has not been accepting log ins.

This is not your problem... but just one example of the "instability" Jeff spoke about.


There is no telling how long Oasis will be up this time... but in all likelihood there is more work to be done... so don't be surprised by further instability up through the coming weekend! By that time it may be smooth sailing!

Keep your fingers crossed.

Could we in the West produce anything similar?
