(...one week ago today)
Howard is First, and so is my kid who just showed!
Good kid! :-)
=I'm tired!=But the house is clean except for the kitchen (but the fridge got cleaned out) and the vacuuming. Those will be done by Mah*Sweetie while I'm at work. Speaking of which, I'd best get some sleep.No word from Renee today, eh? Hmmm. There was a chance she would be sent home today.I hope she's home and settling in. ♥
Wait, wait! It's official! Renee's home!! :-DDemetrius wrote:The sun came out because my sweetie is coming home today!
Ran across this while researching achalasia. Please be careful what you put in your mouth. Check everything out. Doctors do NOT have a clue. . . . These are very commonly prescribed drugs for all kinds of things. http://www.medpagetoday.com/Geriatrics/Dementia/27399
Ever suspect the media's adage, "If it bleeds, it leads," gives a flase impressioin of what's going on? It's true. See http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_PEACEFUL_WORLD?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2011-10-22-09-57-09.And in other news, there are still-unconfirmed reports of another moutain lion in the Chicago metro area.
Thanks, Bill! I needed that. Hope your mountain lion does better than the tigers in Ohio.
Posting this for Alan:Renee! Woot!I figured out how to view the comments on HEP with the browser on my Kindle 3 [AKA Kindle Keyboard] and a workaround through skweezer.com, but I don't seem to be able to figure out how to post comments. Other than that, it seems to be able to do just about everything I would typically want to do on the road, albeit slower than my laptop when it can get a connection. With a free cell phone connection to the Internet, no less. Very promising, and the price is right. I just might get a second one before they are discontinued, since the new ones don't have the free cell phone connection feature. Have to think about that, though. Easy night and morning at the hospital, as such things go.--Alan in CA
I love this blog.We post for each other as needed, send teddy bears as needed, call Sheriff Chuck as needed... 8-)
Hey, that's what friends are for.
Occupy Wall Streeters are considering starting a third party.
That's a good, solid next step...and will piss off a lot of RWs, always a good thing to do. Specifically, I'm thinking of a discussion on the News Hour a couple days ago which included a self satisfied RW who said that, unlike the Tea Partiers,the Occupy Wall Street folks haven't coalesced, haven't put forward an agenda or a platform. If they form a p arty, the agenda and platform cannot, one hopes, be far behind. Let the TP put that in their pipe and smoke it!
It strikes me that the original Tea Party protesters and the Occupy Wall Street protesters have a lot in common: Both essentially started from disgust with the bailouts, which it is easy to see (although I don't really share that view) as work of a corporate-government complex. The Tea Party, of course, was captured by people mostly concerned with minimizing the taxes rich people pay. It's amazing how many of those original protesters are going for Cain's 9-9-9 plan, which explicitly intends to raise the taxes most Americans pay in oder to cut taxes for the wealthiest. So what I'm getting at is I wonder whether this new party will tap into the same populist sentiment that motivated the original Tea Partiers -- the people who simply don't like anything the Washington-New York bigwigs are doing? Or will it, like the people who now claim to speak for the Tea Party, totally miss the boat?
We *have* third party, which doesn't work (most of the time), the Greens. Not sure the OWS are that different. Wish I could see they were. But great fun and hopeful to watch.
As I understand it, joining with the Greens is under consideration too.
I saw a board like this every morning in the hospital. The Friday one is the last one I saw, and I can attest to having met the stated "home" goal by the end of the day.Since arriving home, I've gotten two hours of sleep. You probably won't hear from me again until I've actually gotten 8 in a row. ;)
Pooped. Not sure why: the kid did virtually *all* the work. He appears to be pooped, too. Going to head up to bed pretty soon, since I got up early, and never made it up.
SOOO glad you got home!!!NOT happy you aren't sleeping better. What gets in the way of sleeping? =HUGS=
I'm right behind you. I got up early for work and will be up early with granddaughters.It's going to be a bit of a challenge tomorrow because Littlest*Granddaughter's two favourite people here are Daddy and Grammie and we both have to be present for his talk and she really can't be. Grandad hopes to distract her (he's bringing along a wagon) but it's an hour and a half talk and will be in the low 50's. Send good vibes! :-)
