Ceiling peiling

The house is 35 years old.
The ceiling in one room, living room, has developed cracks in the paint and mud down to the dry wall. There are multiple small cracks and hanging pieces of 'stuff' on the celing. The largest is an 8 inch piece that is hanging. The spots are all over the room. It appears moisture has gotten in between the 2 surfaces and it is separating. But there is no sign of water at all. This has been a slow process and I was hoping it would just stop - but it has not.

Any advice would be appreciated.
THANKS!

Not sure what the cause of your ceiling problem is but you will need to remove all the loose stuff, make sure you have a good surface to repair [may need to be primed first] and then tape and mud as needed.

thanks.
i think i will peel all of the loose stuff off, and cut the mud/paint around the cracks and then wait a while on the cracks to see if they spread.

i wish i knew what was causing it. the wierd part is it is just in the living room of a standard ranch.

thanks again for the time.
