The allergens are brutal right now and I haven't taken any meds until today except for an occasional bedtime benadryl. It's Zyrtec time in my neck of the woods. Claritin does nothing for me nor do any of the others. I'm also back on occasional dosing of a blood pressure med as needed. My numbers are almost normal but the top one tends to creep up without a pill now and then. According to the scales at Dr. J's I've lost five more pounds and that's not surprising in spite of all the funeral food lately.
All you registered voters who are lining up to
Prince is still dead. It sounds a whole lot like he died of sheer exhaustion since he went for like 160 hours straight before collapsing. That is not rumor but straight from the mouth of his family. I respect the way that entire thing was handled with dignity and privacy for those who knew him well. Fame is one of those things that can fracture a soul because everybody wants a piece of you...no, even claims it! I knew you when, they say. I appreciate you more, say the ones who jump on the bandwagon for the ride. At the end, you best know who's got your back.
I'm not the least bit worried about NOK and the nukes because it has always been thus and so as with ISIS and all them. Nothing gets solved by invade and conquer...it only makes more messes. If I had to choose a way to go, I'd say *nukler would be least of evils if you're right at the center and don't have to freakin' die of radiation poisoning. Now THAT is some bad shit. Which brings me around to Zika.
Worldwide we are facing more numerous outbreaks of communicable diseases ranging from Ebola and whatnot to the currently trending mosquito borne virus. It makes the person sick but the real danger is for pregnant women who are giving birth to babies with severe birth defects. It took the global health experts a few months to figure out the pattern of what was up and now it's out there for the whole world to catch. Spray thyself with something organic and non-toxic to fight off all diseases carried by vectors. That includes ticks which are probably the reason my joints hurt. Well, that and arthritis.
