Since I don’t have any other way to classify this post of a collection of random stuff; I just titled it odd bits.
As my Facebook status update to the right has alluded; I have had some medical tests done recently. I am still awaiting any sort of word on results and don’t have much to say about it in the meantime. I have had to make some dietary changes to up fiber intake and cut out some other things (notably caffeine and fried, fatty foods), and I am adjusting to that slowly. I have actually lost a few more pounds with the changes so that is a good thing. I will post some more info as I get it and as is appropriate. In the meantime, I appreciate your prayers for me in this.
In other news, I see today where the US ponzi scheme otherwise known as Social Security has reached a new tipping point where outflow will exceed intake. This is always the death knell of a ponzi scheme and is just one more bad sign for the future of the US as we have known it.
The recently passed health care bill is another sign that we are no longer the nation that most people thought we were. This comment from Rep. Dingle is further proof of the endgame they have in sight to “control the people.” (Listen for it at the end of the clip.)
And on a lighter note, the recent performances of CNN anchors on Jeopardy is one more indication of why nobody watches that network anymore. As if the shellacking that Wolf Blitzer took isn’t enough; Anderson Cooper lost to Cheech Marin.
