Seems like I haven’t been here in months

I’m still getting used to not living by myself, but I sure do enjoy living just 4 minutes from work and not having to deal with the Evil Twin being dirty and dusty all the time.

My divorce should be final sometime next month and I’ll be taking my mom’s maiden name.  I still have to go to court over it.

July is the court date for the issue of not getting paid by Brookfield Washington Homes.  The trial date is set for two days.  I’m happy about this finally coming to an end, hopefully a good end!

Silly is doing fine and is getting along well with Patches, the other cat that lives here.  They spend all day chasing each other and then lay knocked out on my bed.

Patches thinks he’s hot shit!

I hope that everyone had enjoyable holidays.  I was very disappointed that Santa had been kidnapped and hope that he’s okay now…..

I get three days off a year.  One at Thanksgiving and two at Christmas.  Last Thursday I started coughing while I was at work.  Friday I had a fever of 103.7, Saturday 101.4 and Sunday the fever broke after I took some Feverfew tincture.  I didn’t get back to work until this past Tuesday.  Crap, it just doesn’t pay for me to get time off.  I’m either sick or having some kind of surgery.  I’m back to feeling awesome and very happy that I didn’t go out and buy anything to cure the symptoms.  Our bodies are pretty amazing at healing themselves if you give them the things that they need to work with. 

I just ordered a “Squeeeeek No More Kit” and hope to get it some time next week.  The squeaking floors upstairs are getting on my last nerve and they have to go away.  The noise while I’m trying to sleep is driving me nuts and I’m sick and tired of it, so I hope this works.  LOL….It’s either fixing it or not allowing anyone to walk around upstairs between the hours of 10 PM and 6 AM.  Thanks for all the suggestions, Guy, I’ll let you know if it works.

Things didn’t work out for T-Jay in Atlanta, so he will be coming home on Monday.  I’ve missed him terribly and even though he hates Virginia, I’ll be glad to have him back on my end.

Time to go to work.  Wonder if anyone will come out to buy a car on New Year’s Eve?

Here’s hoping that everyone has a safe and happy slide into the new year!!!!

Genetically Modified Organism (GMO)

If you had a coupon for 50% off your first taste of genetically modified salmon, would you try it?

If you had a coupon for 50% off your first taste of genetically modified salmon, would you try it?
What if you knew that the FDA had studies – from AquaBounty, the company that wants to commercialize GMO salmon – that showed that GMO salmon is:

  • MORE ALLERGENIC: GMO salmon have mean allergenic potencies that are 20% and 52% higher than normal salmon.
  • MORE CARCINOGENIC: GMO salmon has 40% more IGF1, a hormone linked to prostate, breast and colon cancers in humans.
  • LESS NUTRITIOUS: GMO salmon has the lowest omega-3 to omega-6 ratio of any salmon.
  • LIKELY TO CHANGE THE BACTERIA IN YOUR INTESTINES: Horizontal gene transfer, where the bacteria of the human gut takes up modified DNA from GMO foods during digestion, has been shown occur with soy and is likely to happen with GMO salmon, too.
  • ALL MESSED UP: GMO salmon has increased frequency of skeletal malformations like “humpback” spinal compression, increased prevalence of jaw erosions or “screamer disease,” and multisystemic, focal inflammation in its tissues.
  • NOT GOING TO SAVE WILD SALMON: The main justification for GMO salmon is that it would supposedly reduce the pressure on wild fish stocks, but consumption isn’t the primary pressure on wild Alaskan salmon, destruction of their habitat is.

Please download the “50% Off” flyer. Pass it out to your friends, at the fish market, the grocery store or a seafood restaurant.
Catch people’s reactions when they learn that genetically engineered animals could soon be approved by the FDA and encourage them to learn more and take action.

Don’t Forget, Tell the FDA: If you approve Frankenfish, it needs to be labeled “GMO!”
