Strategy for the antibiotic

Tuesday, January 14, I saw my primary care physician.  One of my concerns was a sinus infection.  She prescribed an antibiotic.  I am to take one every morning and one every night.

That poses an inconvenience. Continue reading Strategy for the antibiotic

All stressed up and nowhere to “go”

Monday 09/30/13

Yesterday, as usual, after church Vladimir and I went to the McDonald’s at Baltimore and Light Streets, to drink coffee and study. Time came when both of us needed to use the bathroom. The floor outside was flooded, and a sign on the door said, “Out of order. Sorry. 😦 ”

It remains out of service today.

They weren’t ready for white people.

Throughout, the music was so loud I couldn’t hear it.

The mission announced the concert in a Facebook post 11/18.  I had an immediate negative reaction.  There was no more notice of it until it happened, 12/08.

The first thing I heard was the screaming.

Becoming William Tell

This begins with an e-mail exchange between follower Vikkilyn and myself, back in May.

Wednesday, 05/21/14:  Me:  Recent events[1] suggest it’s time for me to get more serious about “becoming” William Tell.  There are some emotional obstacles there, so it’s going to take some work, and seeing this, it’s easy for me to grasp why William Tell hasn’t “happened” yet.  I’ll get through it.

Tuesday, 05/27/14: Vikkilyn:  Not sure what you mean by “becoming” William Tell?  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Tell  What part of William Tell do you want to be?  (I realize that is your “stage name” but you must have picked it for some reason, after all you have written a lot about the power in a name.)

A good article from “The Atlantic” …

… about homelessness, addiction and crime.

It’s a very long article.

I read the whole thing, and it was worth it for me, given that this individual sounds like any of so many of my homeless neighbors. Like half of all drug addicts, the woman is a psychopath; and it sounds like her daughter may be one as well; there is a genetic link. Continue reading A good article from “The Atlantic” …
