Last Week Was The Electrician, Today It's The Plumber
Wednesday, August 03, 2016      6 comments

No water as I write this as I had a 6 a.m. discovery that my water heater flooded the garage. So you know all that entailed. Fortunately, I had a good plumber in advance to call who walked me through turning gas and water valves off on hea... Read more
Body has A Setpoint Weight?
Tuesday, August 02, 2016      11 comments

It's not the first time I've heard this, but the other day's coverage reminded me to blog about it. The health segment noted that our body has a weight setpoint that it fights to maintain. That is, you lose lbs and it works to get back to the ... Read more
Goodbye July, Disneyland Observations, Misc.
Sunday, July 31, 2016      11 comments

Greeting August already seems unbelievable that it has arrived so fast. I don't have any goals set for the month yet other than to keep rebuilding my immune system and keep the leftover nerve pain from shingles continuing to diminish. Goodbye... Read more
R.I.P. Jerry Doyle
Friday, July 29, 2016      8 comments

I didn't know him from his Babylon 5 days, but from his talk show. Jerry had a combination of wit and intelligence combined with a dynamite personality. He was a rascally dude and I miss him already. Hey, Jerry, it was too soon to go. RI... Read more
Caffeine, Shingles, Food Tracking, Misc.
Thursday, July 28, 2016      9 comments

Well, okay. I've been done with caffeine for a few months now. Even though I had only one small mug of coffee each morning, I am a caffeine-sensitive soul. While dealing with the nerve pain from Shingles over the past months, I decided (again... Read more
Absurd Rationalizations, 2 OCD Behaviors, Misc.
Wednesday, July 27, 2016      10 comments

I noticed my recent thoughts on SP that are truly absurd. In one blog, I said that since the brain only uses glucose for energy, I am entitled to eat sugar to enhance my brain power. Man, I've been thinking of that ever since I wrote that and ... Read more
Electrical Problem, Disneyland, I Actually Passed Another Walker, Etc.
Tuesday, July 26, 2016      9 comments

I didn't notice that a circuit of appliances weren't working until 4:15 yesterday afternoon. After problem-solving with the circuit breakers, there was no sign of life. Of course, who knows a good electrician and how easy is it to research aft... Read more
Hot Hot Hot
Monday, July 25, 2016      7 comments

I'm avoiding talking about issues today because I feel like my stuff is so trivial compared with the heavy duty stuff going down in the world. (another overnight shooting rampage, and more stuff in Germany) Even when I talk about my own top... Read more
Rewriting My Deal with Reality
Sunday, July 24, 2016      7 comments

I heard this phrase on a Wayne Dyer segment and really feel it describes where I'm at right now. Have lost my patience with trying to fit a round peg (me) into a square hole (life). What that equates to is that I have always had a restless spi... Read more
Glucose & My Brain, Sympathy for those In Munich
Friday, July 22, 2016      5 comments

First of all, I want to extend my condolences to those affected by the ongoing tragedies in Munich, Germany. Very sad. I've read that glucose is the only source of energy that the brain uses. No wonder I've been craving sugar; I use my br... Read more
BE OPEN TO EVERYTHING, AND ATTACHED TO NOTHING
Thursday, July 21, 2016      9 comments

I hear this occasionally in talks that are oriented with a Buddhist-type philosophy and it makes me smile. Sometimes I can do it, but other times I am open to nothing and attached to everything. Such a creature of so many paradoxes I am! (smil... Read more
NOTHING BUT MEGA STRESS W/NO END IN SIGHT
Wednesday, July 20, 2016      6 comments

One of those nightmare probates is upon me where greedy, awful people are swindling me out of my fair share. Lawyer consult today indicates they are within their right and I don't have a leg to stand on. Isn't that sweet? But I'm going to get... Read more
Sugar/Caffeine Rebellion, Walking Speed, Nerve Pain, Salad, Etc.
Tuesday, July 19, 2016      7 comments

I've had this HUGE (I mean huger than huge) rebellion going on. It's funny that I spent my life making "mature" decisions, but have such an immature streak that makes me laugh sometimes. Aside from some stressful things going on, I just finish... Read more
Heartfelt Sympathy to Those in LA (USA)
Sunday, July 17, 2016      7 comments

As I write this, news reports police being shot in Louisiana. My heart is sad once again. ... Read more
My Dilemma w/Dog Owners During My Walks
Saturday, July 16, 2016      11 comments

I've blogged before about seeing dogs that have to walk on hot pavement with their tender little paws, others that are pulled on leashes that choke them as their owners force their pull, and other miscellaneous things. I am not a meddling type ... Read more
