Senior Citizens Get Free Condoms

by Rolway / July 27, 2007 10:41 AM PDT

NEW YORK -- While volunteers passed out cups of Jell-O to the white-haired lunch crowd at a senior center, another group was distributing something that didn't quite fit amid the card games and daily gossip: condoms.

"You're giving out condoms," 82-year-old Rose Crescenzo said with a wistful smile, "but who's going to give us a guy?"

But this was no joke.

I got a chuckle out of it.....

.... at first,

Then I recalled the instances in my area where nursing home workers raped elderly patients.

Years ago I worked in a nursing home and there was one elderly confused gentleman patient who tried to visit the beds of female ones.

I'm not up to speed if HIV testing is routine on hospital admissions as it is for syphilis. Some places here required chest-xrays for food workers, but I don't know if they still do.

On the face of it, the distribution seems silly. But considering that age doesn't necessarily render one sexless, maybe it could have some merit.

I'll take the Jell-O

George. Getting close for the old folks home in the next few years, but with my recent heart condition, blood pressure, & birthday, I would be more up to the Jell-o right now, but that may change. Laugh

Do not even think of the old folks home. Eat more Jello-O John. The day they talk about shipping me up to the reservation on the hill, is the day I get the guns out. Ever see what they feed you up there? Oh man, its jail house food. What ever I have left is probably in my head, but I sure ain't going to waste it up there in "One flew over the Coo-Koos nest"

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
