Rash is gone

Whew! That was an entire week 1⁄2 of itch itch itch to the point of cracking dry skin. I'm currently on sunblock cream for my hands because the hand lotion I bought to cure the dryness makes my skin sun sensitive.

Natasha's head injury

It makes me wonder whether a statement about the current health restructuring in this country wasn't a motive for the loss of such a heroic actress as Natasha Richardson. I am for Obama, and I was for Clinton, when I learned that health insurance would be restructured to cover all Americans, for back in `94, after two glasses of wine, I bumped into a street sign and opened a small gash in my brow. The parking attendant who helped by bringing me paper towels said I should let him call an ambulance, but I refused. They thought I might need a couple stitches, but I didn't have insurance so I declined. A simple band-aid would suffice.

Later that week, I felt a numb sensation on that side of my head where the brunt of the blow occurred, but I still didn't feel that I needed medical attention because I made it through the night. WARNING! Do not fall asleep after head trauma.

As far as I know, Canada has a universal health plan for their citizens; so where was the doctor immediately after Natasha was injured? Remember the movie Hannibal? Remember the scene where Hannibal slices off a piece of brain of his nemesis?

HANNIBAL: Paul, I told you, if you're going to be rude to our guests you'll have to sit at the kiddie tab

Hannibal goes on to explain to Clarice that the brain cannot feel pain. Go figure? Who knew?

But after I had my near death experience, I mean, the week after the numbness disappeared, that's when I began to suffer migrains. What's a migrain if it isn't a painful brain, right? But back to subject: universal healthcare.

I got out of Jury Duty. I got out of Jury Duty. nee-ner nee-ner neen-ner

Oops. Sorry about that. Ol` football injury.

Bill Richardson Bill Richardson Bill Richardson Bill Richardson.

There I go again. So, the news about the loss of Natasha Richardson was very sad and my prayers go out to the family and loved ones. It's truly sad that such a talented person should have been allowed to make such a serious decision when her thought process was questionable (compromised).

useful trivia

28-yr cycle calendar This is a new age for an old calendar system
Perhaps you've noticed that your monthly calendar begins with the day of Sunday. I was brought up with the understanding that God created the world in seven days and the last day, the 7th day, happened to be Sunday. For a calendar system like the one we use regularly to hang on the wall to begin on a Sunday, it makes me wonder just how religious people in this country really are, for a yearly calendar that displays each month in a way that suggests Sunday is the first day of the week means that Saturday is the day that ends up being the "7th day". And you know what that means, don't you? It means that every time the first week of the month starts on a Sunday, the seventh day is a Saturday, and, therefore, that month in particular will contain a Friday the 13th.
