Leap Second


I learned about this several years ago but forgot all about it.  It seems strange but with our precise computers it does make sense.

I Replaced My Plastic Garbage Cans

Just a quiet Sunday.  I was able to replace two old plastic garbage cans with a brand new metal can.  I went with metal this time because rodents got into the plastic cans, chewed through the plastic bags and ate some of what scraps of food were left.

I cleaned up the plastic garbage cans and put one in the storage area of the basement.  I put the other one near my workbench.  The lids were too damaged to save.


Walking Extra Two minutes Each Hour May Offset Hazards Of Sitting Too Long


Here's some healthy advice I came across suggesting that walking for an extra two minutes each hour may help prolong life.

This is what I'm trying.  I have a small kitchen timer which I set for 1 hour.  When it goes off I set it for 2 minutes and walk around the rooms in my house.

Last Night I Fell

Last night I fell in the garage when I got home from my immune globulin treatment for my CIDP condition.

I don't remember falling but I do remember losing my balance then the concrete floor seemed to come up and hit me in the nose.  Very strange, it must have been a delusion.
"Okay I guess this is how it's going to end," I thought.

Lynette helped me blot up the blood.  I was a bit queasy when I went inside the house to check the damage.  I couldn't tell if I broke my nose and my wrist. The left side of my face hurt.  It felt like a toothache from the molars to my front teeth but the teeth were not broken.

Lynette insisted we go to the ER instead of the local clinic. At the ER I didn't have to wait long and the CT scan showed no broken skull or brain injury.

My nose and wrists where not broken.  My forehead and bridge of my nose were torn up and there's a crease where my glasses were pressed into the top of my nose.

I'm grateful that it was not as bad as it could have been.  I cringe when I think about how I could have had a broken nose, front teeth knocked in, concussion, etc.

In bed I had some anxiety about how much chance is involved in our lives.
You make plans but you can't be sure how things will work out.

Today I had to go to the drug store for antibiotic cream because mine expired. Some  tubes expired 6 years ago, some 10 years ago.

I'm so tired that I'll just take a long nap then stay on the PC.



"I Need A Dollar"

Here are some of the lyrics for the video below.  My daughter Laurissa found this video for me.
Enjoy:

And if I share with you my story would you share your dollar with me
Well I don't know if I'm walking on solid ground
Cause everything around me is crumbling down
And all I want is for someone to help me


I had a job but the boss man let me go
He said
I'm sorry but I won't be needing your help no more
I said
Please mister boss man I need this job more than you know
But he gave me my last paycheck and he sent me on out the door


What in the world am I gonna to do tomorrow
is there someone whose dollar that I can borrow
Who can help me take away my sorrow

Maybe its inside the bottle
Maybe its inside the bottle
I had some good old buddy his names is whiskey and wine
hey hey
And for my good old buddy I spent my last dime
hey hey
My wine is good to me it helps me pass the time
and my good old buddy whiskey keeps me warmer than the sunshine


Well I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need hey hey
And if I share with you my story would you share your dollar with me
come on share your dollar with me
go ahead share your dollar with me
come on share your dollar give me your dollar
share your dollar with me
come on share your dollar with me

I Hope No One Makes a Mistake!


The situation in the mid-east is very complicated.  It scares me.
Here is part of an article I found on the web.  Is it only unrealistic panic and exaggerated news stories by the media?  I hope so.

I pray that World War III never happens, that something can be worked out peacefully. 


Be Kind


“Over the years you get to see what a struggle life is for most people, how tough it is, how easy it is to be judgmental and criticize and stand outside of situations and impart your wisdom and judgment. But over the decades I've got more tolerant of people's flaws and mistakes. Everybody makes a lot of them. When you're younger you feel: "Hey, this person is evil" or "This person is a jerk" or stupid or "What's wrong with them?" Then you go through life and you think: "Well, it's not so easy." There's a lot of mystery and suffering and complication. Everybody's out there trying to do the best they can. And it's not such an easy business.”
- Woody Allen

Turtle Railways


I think this is a great idea.  Japan Railways put these pathways in to prevent the turtles from being run over by passing trains.
