Hello Mom? I'm Sick and Can't Work Anymore Tonight!

On and off all day today, I have felt less than great. I took some pain relievers and about a 90 minute nap that helped for a little while but I can see it is all wearing off again. I don't feel terrible but I don't feel good. I thought I was going to work on a short story that I want to finish in... Sign in to see full entry.

Lest We Forget

Today is the 29th anniversary of the explosion of the Space Shuttle Challenger. I was watching this along with my daughter who was 7 and my son who was 3 at the time. It was difficult to get out the proper words to explain to them what had just happened and that the men and women they had just seen... Sign in to see full entry.

What A Difference A Day Makes

A couple days back, I mentioned that the entirety of the household save me was A-Number 1 sick. I hesitate to tell you all the symptoms they had but I digress. They are about all over theirs but now I am beginning to feel like crap so I got all of my daily postings done, did about 900 words for a... Sign in to see full entry.

It's Snowing... But As Much As They Predicted?

The one thing I learned as a kid growing up in the lake effect snow regions of western Michigan was that while the weather people could tell you when it might snow, they could never tell you how much snow when a storm was blowing in. As advanced as we are, the science of weather can't yet accurately... Sign in to see full entry.

Always The Odd Man out!

Ha! Everyone in the household is sick with this new strain of flu going around here except me. I had a day or so of not feeling well but apparently, I am to be spared all the real nasty stuff. Of course, this frees up the television in all three TV areas so I can watch three different shows and just... Sign in to see full entry.

Roman a clef Based Writing

I like working in the "Roman a clef" mode, best described by Wikipedia as French for novel with a key, which is a novel about real life, overlaid with a facade of fiction. The works of fiction I have been posting over on my fiction blog HERE use this mode. Every story in my trilogy of stories is... Sign in to see full entry.

We Return After a Brief Timeout

Since I was about nine or so, I have had issues with atrial fibrillation. I've taken digoxin for years and most days, it works fine. Back in 2001, I had to have my aortic valve replaced after a recent root canal went bad. The bacteria endemic to your teeth will harm no other organ in your body... Sign in to see full entry.

A Day Off

I spent about six hours in the ER today due an irregular heart beat. I was told to go home and rest. I'll resume tomorrow. Thanks! V Sign in to see full entry.

Just a post script to yesterdays post. The man I wrote about has been hospitalized and is undergoing treatment for severe depression. Thanks to those who voiced concern about him. Todays rant follows. This is an unusually good article, especially for Mlive.com, a site that USED to be a very good... Sign in to see full entry.

To Be or Not To Be...

I was supposed to be elsewhere by now but I got an early morning call (4AM!) from a friend who 'just needed to talk' and about 30 minutes into it, they said they were considering suicide. They asked if I thought God would punish them forever if they did. I don't believe that would happen. Some might... Sign in to see full entry.
