I Want My Land Legs Back

What does rest mean? I really don't know. The treatment for my concussion is rest. What's that? You mean sleep? I don't get it.

A Motivating Tool|Or Exercise

Yes, making lists is a form of exercise - mental/brain and physical. For me, rarely if ever  do I follow the list. It's the making of one that motivates me to get going again.

WALKING A MARATHON

In June 2017 I walked a marathon in 21 days. A marathon is 26 miles, so it was a little over a marathon in 21 days. I like the marathon reference. For me, that's working. It keeps me keeping track of the miles. Sure, sometimes I forget to take my iphone tracker, but I don't... Continue Reading →

Oregano Replaces Need For Antibiotics…

...at least in chickens. The people over at Perdue Chicken Farms put oregano in their chickens' water to eliminate the need for antibiotics. Supposedly oregano contains antioxidants that keep the chickens from getting infections, which is the reason for the antibiotics in the first place. In another advertisement, Perdue claims that rosemary and thyme help... Continue Reading →

Water and Salt – Balanced Intake Are Essential for Health and Hydration

Water and salt regulate the water content in the body. Drinking water without adequate salt and potassium intake will not correct chronic dehydration. Refined salt contains additives, such as 0.01% of potassium-iodide (added to help prevent thyroid disease), sugar (added to stabilize iodine and prevent clumping), and aluminum silicate. Water and Salt - Balanced Intake... Continue Reading →

This is the note Steve left me on the kitchen counter this morning. And along with it this booklet. As I told my doctor: I'm not going to think about it till I have the biopsy. There's nothing I can do now anyway. I'll probably read the booklet after the biopsy and before I receive... Continue Reading →

Big Foot’s Not Going To Win This One…

Eleven Days After The Fall - when Big Foot (the scale) tripped me in the bathroom in the middle of the night and the bathtub sucker-punched me.

When It Rains It Pours…another big foot update

Alright, so I go to the doctor about my fall and resultant injuries. He sees the pictures I took, asks me a bunch of questions, examines me. He orders a bunch of blood work and is more concerned about the dizziness and resultant balance difficulties, than he is about any broken bones I might have... Continue Reading →

Update On Big Foot

I couldn't get in to see my doctor till Tuesday, so took pictures in case I was healed by then. Urgent care or the emergency room would have only referred me back to him with a pat on the head and instructions to take Tylenol. I wasn't critical, so thought to save my insurance money...

Steve’s Coffee

Let's face it. Starbuck's coffee is expensive. Especially when you want the specialty stuff.

You’re Flooding Me

When you drink a half gallon of carrot juice your brain screams STOP. What are you doing? I don't want all that vitamin A. Don't need all that. Slow down. What am I going to do with all that? Where am I going to put it? It's too much. You're flooding me. I'm on overload.... Continue Reading →

It’s The Scale’s Fault

The BIG FOOT scale I put in our tiny bathroom tripped me in the middle of a bathroom run in the middle of the night and the bathtub sucker-punched me right in the kisser as I fell. I could have died. I could have broken my nose, jaw, teeth, neck. Maybe I did. My nose... Continue Reading →
