I don't know how to approach a friend about her son

I am friends with my neighbor and her 3 kids.  Her oldest son who is 11 years old loves being around me and playing football or games on our phones.

I've noticed that around certain boys he seems to do a lot of joking around sexually.  Today I believe he took it too far with his sexual joking because he did a couple things which were inappropriate that made the other boy we were playing football with feel uncomfortable.

I told the boy to go tell my neighbor what her son did to him, at first he said he would then after a few minutes he decided it wasn't worth telling my neighbor about what happened.

I want to approach my neighbor about what happened but where I didn't actually see the stuff happen due to my neighbors son intentionally doing the stuff when my back was turned to them and the boy it happened to saying he wouldn't say anything I don't don't know how to approach my neighbor without making myself look bad.

Perplexed by a neighbors child's actions

I know that my neighbors kid is going through puberty and will joke around with friends certain ways  which includes sexually based jokes for his age group but the amount of joking around with friends along with not being able to tell if he's joking or serious at times he has caused the friends of his that I know to call him gay as he's doing the joking and will continue to joke around that way.

He also tends to tell friends of his that are in a higher grade than him that he has a girlfriend but tells his friends in the same grade as him and adults that he doesn't have a girlfriend and has in the past told me that he's not interested in girls but at the same time he hasn't come out saying that he likes boys either.

The boy does like to do boy things but he'll do things while doing things that boys like to do that make you wonder if he's joking or for real and over the past year or so the joking and the things make you wonder haven't aside from increasing in frequency and intensity what he does has gone unchanged.

I do not know how to explain what he does without making people think that I am a pervert, but there is something that he did tell me with in the past year that has stuck with me and that is him having gone up to me and told me how boys have babies.  When he said that I told him boys have babies by having sex with girls and then he went further and said "I mean boy on boy" for which I asked how and he said that they adopt.  I do not know where that came from but he did go out of his way to tell me and don't know if he would even remember having said it where it was months ago.

I do not know how to go to his parents to question whether he's just joking around or if he's really the way acts given that he seems over the top at times when he does joke the way he does

why aren't we doing....

With the fact we still have:

a lot of people unemployed/under employed

a real need to increase the amount of clean drinkable water

a real need to grow more food

a real need to create more energy and protect our energy sources

a real need to rebuild and expand on our infrastructure

I keep wondering why we aren't doing more to:

Desalinate water on a larger scale through building multiple desalination plants along the coastline with finding ways to supply energy to the desalination plants that would not be a drain on the resources we already use

use large arid areas that are known to be hot as farm land with creating a water pipeline from one or more water desalination plants to have a constant supply of water for the crops and any farm animals that can tolerate the heat well enough to thrive.

find more sources of energy and up scaling those energy sources that are already proven to work but are still in small scale and to incorporate things like solar panels into new building as part of the overall part of the design of the facade to incorporate the panels into the overall look.

actually deal with the crumbling infrastructure that we call our modes of transportation, our utilities and such to the point that we actually expand on what is already there to accommodate the ever growing populations with using double or triple the expected population growth in upgrading and expanding so we don't fall short of what we need.

doing this would help solve a lot of the problems plaguing our society while also putting millions of people to work partly with short term jobs with things like construction and manufacturing and permanent jobs that includes creating the water, growing the food/energy, the upkeep of the infrastructure, and the manufacturing jobs that would be needed to be able to maintain each of these.

thoughts on the drought going on in the western part of the U.S.

In the western part of the U.S. there has been a drought going on for the last few years with no real change in the foreseeable future by meteorologists.

The question is what do the municipalities and companies going to do about the need for water versus the lack of available drinkable water.

I think that each U.S. state that has coastline should be desalinating water with the states closest to the drought stricken areas of the country doing the most desalinating given the increased need for water.

Yes desalinating sea water is expensive but what I'd like to see happen is that the water itself be directed on the intake end in such a way that would help create as much of the energy needed as possible.  Where we use dams in rivers to create reservoirs and to create energy, why cant we design large scale holding tanks that permit intake from the tides and by a siphon with the intake having water turbines that can be powered by both the siphon and the high tide?

Where there are water turbines that work with the ocean currents and a siphon creates a man made current in a tube, why can't they be adapted to be used with a siphoning effect for the intake of ocean water for a water desalination plant to help create the needed energy?

Why can't we use the facade and roofs of the buildings that would be a part of the desalination process to house solar panels facing the path of the sun?

Given the advances in windmill technologies why can't we have rooftop windmills on the property or rooftop windmill type windmills in strategically placed areas between buildings to catch the wind as it goes around the buildings where the space between buildings can act like a wind tunnel.

The cost of desalinating water is expensive but what are the economic and environmental costs of not doing as much large scale water desalination as possible in the areas where we have millions of people and countless farms that would be hurt or helped by doing or not doing desalination?

If we started doing a lot more large scale desalination we would create badly needed jobs for every step along the way from building to running the plants.

Why is it that most wheelchairs are dark colors?

Before my brother Tommy had gotten hit by the car, I had already been asking myself why the manufacturers of wheelchairs tend to use dark colors for their wheelchairs where it causes safety issues for the user if they are ever in an area where they need to use the roads at night when there are no sidewalks and at crosswalks.

I had been asking myself to the point that I had bought reflective tape and reflectors for my moms and a friends electric wheelchairs a couple weeks before my brother had gotten hit by the car.  After he got hit, it showed the inherent problems with the dark colored wheelchairs when it comes to safety, and I concerned enough to decide to buy reflective tape and reflectors for a neighbor in my apartment complex so that way she can use them if she feels that she needs them.

Safety for those who need any type of mobility devices is paramount when they are being manufactured.  Those who need to utilize mobility devices have limited options in terms of colors that permit them to be seen by oncoming traffic with the only color being used is chrome for some metal parts but it isn't an industry standard for safety.

I feel that the manufacturers of mobility devices should be required to manufacture their products to be highly visible when in low light situations, whether it be a paint job with reflective properties or if there are items that glow in the dark with the material being able to glow in the dark for as long as possible.

About my brother Thomas James Davis

On September 5, 2014 my brother Thomas James Davis who was living in Hawaii was struck by a car on his way home and subsequently died due to his injuries.

Even though he may have not wanted to listen to family and friends on certain things he will be greatly missed by many people.

As much as a pain in the butt he was at times, he was a good person.

Tommy may you Rest in Peace and I hope that you are in a far better place where you are able to walk with out the aid of crutches or a wheelchair and with being able to hear people again.

Thomas James Davis

it's been a while

Its been a while since I last posted due to things happening in my life that has had me preoccupied with other things and haven't had the time post my opinions or ideas.

I had to take the time to sit down and post something where I feel that the Politicians especially a minority of them wanting things their way regardless of what should happen.

The politicians have been acting like spoiled brats rather than leaders in the sense that they don't want to compromise when compromise is necessary or warranted and instead demanding that they get everything that they want under the terms and conditions that they want.

Time for them to grow up and treat the country as they see it which is one of the greatest countries out there instead of a political chess match that will inevitably bring down the country if they don't get with it.

I have been unemployed for roughly a year and a half and given the way the economy looks I may end up unemployed for a lot longer where a lot of companies are now being very selective in who they hire due to the amount of people now looking for work regardless of whether they are listed as unemployed due to receiving unemployment benefits or they have used up their unemployment benefits.

The worst part is that some companies are starting to require degrees for positions where degrees may be helpful but are not required in general and if the companies don't want a degree then they want experience which puts a lot of people looking for work at a disadvantage if they lack the degree or the experience.

I'd like to find a job soon due the fact it is demoralizing to be out of work and to have to borrow money that would take a long time to pay off due to not having a job.

If I could I would go into business given that I was told I should but the closest thing I can do to that is a side job under the table until I got the money up to start one.

If you are interested in seeing something I have created and would like to have one made for yourself here is the link to a website I put together.

seans forms

I wish I knew something about marketing especially online marketing using social media to promote the site I put together in order to help earn some extra cash or to actually turn into a full time business.

I put together the site due to having been told by a few doctors that I should go into business putting together what I call a Home Health Organizer and Planner after seeing what I did for my parents in regards to putting together one for my parents where the doctors thought it was well organized and the doctors stating that they wish more patients had what I put together.

Granted there are things like the I.C.E. Credit Card and other things that first responders, medical clinics and medical specialists would need to know up front but you if you have a computer, you would have to feel comfortable using the software and if you do not have a computer you have to go t someone you trust that has a computer that would be willing to help you put the information into the item.

My Home Health Organizer and Planner does have a sheet that allows you to fill in the information such as who each of your doctors are, their office information and medications listed by doctor with the dosing instructions. The sheet also allows you to give other pertinent information such as allergies and known medical conditions along with the hospital information if you are routinely seen at a specific hospital.

My planner also has a monthly calendar with the month on one side of the sheet and a doctors appointment planner on the reverse side for the specific month on the front side of the sheet.

For those who require multiple medications there is a chart to keep track of your prescriptions so that you know when it was filled and how many refills you have left on the prescriptions.

Depending on what else besides your monthly doctors appointments and the information that you would routinely give to a clinic, specialist or when you are having a procedure done, you can have other things in it like a chart to keep track of you blood pressure, your blood sugar, your pulse & oxygen from an oximeter, and any chart that I can potentially make that could be added to the planner.

I invite anyone who reads this blog post to view my site and don't be afraid to contact me if you would like one for yourself and please share the link to the site with people or organizations that you feel could benefit from such a product that I am offering on my website.

Thank you for your time,
