Sigh.....

The "Good News" from my clinic apt yesterday was that the overworked Diabetes Coordinator was gone. The 'Bad" is that my PA now does the prescribing. Medically? She's on the ball. Unfortunately, even after more than a yr she's still not "got" the concept County health Dept Client=POOR. She calle in a new Diabetes med for me and the Pharm sent me an email telling me it's not covered by my Insurance Medicare-D and the monthly fee is $149.35 OVER my monthly SSI.
Tomorrow I get to TRY to get a hold of her...

BOOOOMMMMM!!!!!!!

Well, we found out yesterday that the lightning rod my Dad made was functional as well as ornamental;>! A direct strike and all we lost was a TV and a couple lightbulbs. It was powerful enough that it made your ears "pop" with the pressure change.
Cheers,
Pat

Wheee;>!!!!

Butch
Fun day...and it's not even 1000;>!
1st thing this AM was that the Internet was down, so I had to reboot the system, TWICE.
2nd thing, while I was in the grocery store someone snapped off the driver's side mirror of my truck(of which yesterday I needed to get a jump from my Dad so I could get it to the battery store)
3rd thing, on the way home FROM said store the "Service Engine Soon" light came on
4th thing. Dad called and wanted to give us their spare dining room table that Mom had been using for crafts....NOW. Instead of having it moved when they moved and we walk it over two doors down. It, OF COURSE was in the loft of the A-frame guesthouse. Dad wanted me to "catch" when he lowered it. I TOLD HIM he couldn't do it but arguing with a Green Beret with Alzheimer's is pretty useless(as it was BEFORE;>). He couldn't, but luckily I'm still pretty fast if not the most graceful...........
Sigh....
Now I have to take the truck in to get a new mirror AND find out what's causing the warning light to come on.
At least it's not next week;>!
Cheers,
Pat

This Showtime documentary series is very good. It's also VERY DEPRESSING. By the 3rd episode you pretty much realize that nothing less than a planetary Ebola epidemic's going to prevent a Devonian-level Extinction. Between bribed politicians and Ignorant populations there really is little hope anything will happen in time. Thanking the Regin I'm both Gay AND have never Reproduced....and Hoping my niece and nephew don't. A future where a rat meal in the USA is considered Luxury is no place to grow up.

US Elections.....

Butch
1-Completely unsurprised by the results
2-As usual had my poor opinion of Humanity was reinforced

Those I have the least Respect for were those Progressives that CHOSE to make a "Protest Vote" AND are Bitch'n about the results of the election.
WHAT DID YOU THINK WAS GOING TO HAPPEN!?!?!!?!?
Cheers,
Pat

O-Tay.........

So....we're making our monthly Dollar Store run and in front of us in line is a guy with:

1-Supersoaker
1-Ammonia(1gal)
1-'Jesus Loves Me' doll

The mind boggles with THAT combo;>....
Cheers,
Pat

Closing......

Butch
is the 1st week of December. That meant there's a pretty good chance we'll be celebrating Yule in our new home, sipping mulled cider by the fireplace;>!
Gunna miss some things about our present home but it's really too big yard-wise for me to keep up with my health "issues". Now, if we'd lived in the country where I didn't have to put up with a lawn it'd been a different story;>.
We've pretty much culled everything we don't wish to take with and once the folks get moved into their house(Closes Samhain)we'll re-use their boxes. And while the house needs a little work before we move in we can start moving some stuff to store in the shed part of the carport as well as outside plants. Trucks are oft useful;>.....
Cheers,
Pat

Almost Done....

Butch
with my Quest to save a few of the rare plants I've grown about the property so I can take them with. Unfortunately, by the time Chris told us, many had gone Summer Dormant and now many are going Winter. Luckly, once I heard our "Marching Orders";>, I'd gone about the yard with leftover bamboo skewers to mark those that still had leaves(or sticks;>)so I won't lose everything. 'Course, the Universe being what it is, even if I DO dig them up they might not survive that OR the wildlife(as today when I noticed the Persicaria 'Red Dragon' I'd potted up had been completely dug up by squirrels).
There's a few things left to dig up and a few to take Cuttings of to Root but other than that we're pretty ready for the 1st part of the yr.
Amusingly, we heard our "orders" when the folks heard theirs but no matter how many times we all told them that they'd be Moving by mid November at the latest they hadn't done anything....until today. We found this out at 0700 when they called u to help;>.....
Cheers,

Is one of a couple English translations of this odd Anime(and there's only the Kanji form so don't ask me the Romanji;>!)...
We've all seen/read/etc various Dark Lord vs Good Guys material. What few have done is dealt with the "Ever After". This Anime does amusingingly and charmingly.
Raul and his cohort were part of the army that defeated the Demon King and Saved The World. Problem is that killing Monsters as a skill isn't much use in a Peaceful World. And there are a LOT of Vets.
So, they work at a discount store, trying to "deal" with not being able to use the skills they mastered, and the "perks" thereof(like killing those that "bug" you;>). Add in the daughter of the Demon King you needs a job to make a living and who has minimal "people skills"(duh) and you have one "Interesting" work environment;>!
Cheers,
Pat

No Sympathy....

Butch
for the Christian woman peddling her "Pity-Pot" on a number of my newsgroups the last couple of days. She's upset that the story of her and her family's "Tale of Redemption" has been oft met with Mean-Spiritedness".
So, when her family found out their son was Gay they threw him out and he had the "Unchristian" action of dying on the street without Renouncing his "Gayness". AFTER HE DIES, they "Repent saying that if they could have done things differently, they wouldn't have thrown him out. PERIOD. It's sort of like (to members of My Other Tribe)hearing a WWII Concentration Camp guard "Repenting" of the Gas Chambers and Crematoriums....PERIOD.
As someone who's watched this sort of crap since the late 70's....it's about THEM, not HIM. THEY are failures in their eyes because:
They couldn't get their Son to be a perfect Christian despite "Raising Him Right"
He died without proving them RIGHT

Fuck Them.

If they want MY Forgiveness, adopt some GLBT kid who's parents did what they DID and TRY to pay the Weregild. TRY. Going from church to church getting your "Aura Fluffed" for how much YOU'VE SUFFERED IMO adds to the DEBT OWED.
Cheers,
Pat
