Chamber of Commerce

what wonderful group.

KIEV, Ukraine — A parliamentary hearing was convened here in March to consider an odd remnant of Ukraine’s corrupt, pre-revolutionary government.

Three years ago, Ukraine filed an international legal challenge against Australia, over Australia’s right to enact antismoking laws on its own soil. To a number of lawmakers, the case seemed absurd, and they wanted to investigate why it was even being pursued.

2015 a bad year

2 months ago wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, she decided that the best way to get through it all was to go with total bilateral mastectomy.. she is doing well but apparently needs to go with chemo for a little insurance...will start in 2 weeks or so...
a month ago I had a CT angiogram for some clogged artery problems, the scan turned up a bladder mass, cyto scope confirms a tumor. Had the surgery yesterday was sent home with a foley which apparently needs to stay in for 3 days...it is leaking slightly and very very uncomfortable in that I feel as if I need to urinate and right now... feels like a full bladder to the point that I will pee my britches any second... Any one have any ideas on the problem with the catheter ? Or is it a "suck it up" situation?

Any ideas are sure welcome.


I finally found out

what's really at the end of the rainbow


It is scary

I actually saw a truck today that had a sticker in the back window "Trump 2016/make America great again"

It should say Trump 2016(not) make America the laughing stock of the world"

As valid today as it was then

FDR and his "Welcome their hatred" speech.... The fact is that nothing has really changed since then


Future repugs

Father is already one looks like


Hopefully someone will recognize them and turn them in.


31 years today.... so far so good

The people have spoken

The great experiment is over, it made a good run at it but in the end it was too much to ask to expect some sort of overall good of the people in general to beat the powers of greed and gluttony... Pure once great democratic republic is an oligarchy now and will probably go down the drain in pretty much the same manner as all other attempts...

Cell phone repair

trying to find info on repair services, anyone used Dr. Quick Fix??

Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki has resigned in the wake of the scandals over manipulated waiting lists in the VA health system.

At a press conference Friday, President Obama announced that Shinseki offered his resignation this morning, "And with considerable regret, I accepted it."

Obama credited Shinseki with working hard to address problems within the VA system and improving conditions for his fellow veterans on a range of issues. "But as he told me this morning, the VA needs new leadership to address it," Obama said, adding that Shinseki said he does not want to be a distraction going forward.
