    Pretty funny FB page started up today called "Nurses With Cards". Memes galore. So funny. Just an FYI.

    I've been watching news coverage of the fire in Paris; Notre Dame. Such a heartwrenching and heartbreaking event. I did check in on the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation runners in the Boston Marathon. They raised over $200,000 dollars. Cold, rainy, windy here. Good luck Tweety with jet lag. Safe flight home.

    Good morning. Glad to read your posts everyone. Seems like a good day for all so far. My son's pickup wouldn't start last night when he left the bowling alley. He got a ride home from a friend. He and dad are on the way to see if they can fix whatever is wrong - maybe the starter. Church (Palm Sunday), work more in the yard, take mother-in-law out to dinner. That's all that's on my plate. I hacked the heck out of an out-of-control prickly-leaves/red berries bush. We have a huge pile of cuttings that we have to take to the ranch. Too big to do a burn pile. I might catch the lilacs on fire. Insomnia monster visited and the last time I saw the clock was 0230. I'm sore from starting to run (jog) again and lift weights. Never sure why I stop when I know, I know this beginning part of starting to exercise is painful. Ok - 2nd cup of coffee down. Onward and upward. Have a wonderful day folks.

    The Congressional Thread

    herring - you are doing your best. Sometimes, people are just ready before we are ready. It is interesting to read about end-of-life stories from hospice nurses. I'm fascinated by it. The class on Advanced Directives starts in about 40 minutes. I'm back home for a snack (dry roasted peanuts and iced tea) and then will head up to the hospital shortly. It is only a mile away. If Spidey didn't have baseball practice, I'd take him. I think I mentioned that my grandkids now have 6 chickens. My son built a chicken coop for them and it is keeping the grandkids busy. The 6 chickens were born just before Christmas so they won't be laying eggs until June or July. We'll be up there the week after Easter so am looking forward to spending time with my son, his wife, and the kids (and chickens). Better head out . . . ya'll enjoy your afternoon.

    How will history judge us indeed. https://www.bostonglobe.com/ideas/2019/04/10/oneil/t0wEh4yEXHTzBttu77AGWK/story.html
  7. My thoughts exactly after watching some video this morning of how badly she was treated by some Democrats and the media. Geez, it is nasty out there. I wish her the best.

    I saw this short video when it first came out. I have great respect for Charles Krauthammer and miss his voice. I recently purchased a book his son published of many of Mr. Krauthammer's columns and articles. I'm enjoying reading them - especially his love of baseball. I like that he says his thoughts are not to placate either side but focus on trying to fix things. https://www.prageru.com/video/build-the-wall/

    Oh I loved how Candace handled herself. I was so impressed.

    I'm glad you have hospice too. But I'm biased. Oh Stars . . . hoarders! We have a family member who is a hoarder and I've had more than one hospice family who hoard as well. Sometimes that makes it difficult to get a hospital bed in the home. And let's not forget we have to assess for home safety. Such a challenge. I'm still sitting here . . .

    The picture shows cyclone fencing used to partition off places for beds, etc. I dunno if we had more money to spend, we could make actual walls so it looks more like a bedroom than a "cage". I know we have hundreds, maybe thousands of large tents as well. How do you house thousands of illegal immigrants or asylum-seekers?

    I did watch and I was frustrated by the treatment of Kirstjen Nielsen when she was not allowed to respond. I've never been a fan of how this process works, for either side. Someone gets to pontificate and the person isn't allowed, at that time, to respond. But the entire session with Kirstjen Nielsen wasn't part of the video so maybe later she was allowed to address the issues. I thought AG Sessions did a good job of explaining how asylum works. I'll admit I didn't know the details before watching that video. It makes sense to me. As to the characterization of the way cyclone fencing is used . . . it isn't a cage. In my opinion. But this is a complicated issue. How do you solve illegal immigration? You cannot just open the borders. We don't have the capacity to house so many illegal immigrants even though more family detention centers were built starting in 2014, from what I can find. And if you look back in time, Obama, Shumer, Clinton & Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer and others were in favor of strengthening our country against the influx of illegal immigrants. It is pretty interesting to go back and look at video evidence of this. I truly think that the hatred of Trump is what spurs this mess on . . . and we aren't making good decisions because of the division and derision in politics now. And so people suffer and politicians live in their lofty towers not having a clue.

    Presidential Election 2020

    I was there, I did see it, I'm glad you are here. I know you'll have a great time while on vacation and a break from politics is a good thing. steph

    Good morning! 40% chance of rain today. I'll be attending a presentation by our social worker, "Advance Directive Workshop", today at 3 p.m. I'm not working today (our census is still zero). Might get out this morning and walk the fall's loop. I need some exercise. Spent some time with my mother-in-law late yesterday. She's having a terrible time with tremors. She woke up at 04 yesterday with her tremors so much worse. Her appt with the neuro isn't until the 4/22. I wish we could push it up. They have her on a list in case of cancellations. I need a 2nd cup of coffee to clear the cobwebs and then I'll see how the weather is holding and take that walk. Enjoy your day! I've linked y'all there before but there are newbies here at times so: https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=455

    Special Council Muller Report

    I truly think we, as a country, are in such different . . .zip codes, if you will. . . regarding what we see and hear. I listened to Barr yesterday as he spoke before the House Appropriations subcommittee via radio on my long drive to Chico and my impression was he did a great job talking about the law and not relying on emotion. Facts over feelings is one of the mantras I use when researching different subjects (comes in handy with anti-vaxxers). Later in the evening I saw a press conference with Dems and listened to their impressions/complaints and I found myself shaking my head. Did we hear the same testimony? We are all firmly entrenched in our own biases . . . and that makes it hard to be open-minded and listen to the other side. I can't access WaPo anymore either . . . I've had my share of free looks and unless I pay, I can't see anything. National Review still lets me look however. https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/04/attorney-general-barr-mueller-report-release/
