And Life Goes On

Stop the Insanity

Mateys, it's time to take this into our own hands. We need this to stop and make sure it never happens again. What kind of future will we have if this continues? What about our children's children's children? What would you say to them if you had the chance?

Everyone of us has the ability to help. It isn't rocket science you know.

So step up the plate and do your fair share to make everything right again.

Good Golly Miss Molly

Little Miss Molly decided at 2:00am she should make sure that my lips, eyes and ears were still in the correct place. At least she's learned not to use her claws to do this.

Captain Crab's Confused (again)

Canadian: "Please divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision."

Americans: "Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the north to avoid a collision."

Canadians: "Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision."

Americans: "This is the captain of a us navy ship. I say again, divert your course."

Canadians: "No. I say again, you divert your course."

Americans: "This is the aircraft carrier USS Lincoln, the second largest ship in the United States Atlantic fleet. We are accompanied by three destroyers, three cruisers and numerous support vessels. I demand that you change your course 15 degrees north, I say again, that's one five degrees north, or counter-measures will be undertaken to ensure the safety of this ship. "

Canadians: "This is a lighthouse. Your call."

No Do-Overs

As I grow older and approach the magical anniversary of my 60th trip around the sun sometimes I pause and rethink some of my decisions over the years. There are no do-overs in life.

Dr. Grumpy Takes on the Industry

Dr. Grumpy has an interesting bit about the pharmaceutical industry today. Here's a preview:

Pharmaceuticals are amazing stuff. You can bitch and moan about their costs, side effects, or the number of them you're taking, but what they've done to extend life and improve it's quality is truly remarkable.

And for all the bad raps they get, I salute the pharmaceutical industry, and those who work anonymously in labs around the world, to bring us these miracles.

But drug companies also do absolutely weird crap. One thing that's recently driven me nuts is the trend away from drugs of real value toward what I call "drugs of convenience" (DoC).

Long Gone

For years I have driven by and enjoyed this barn. The first few years it was used to house cattle during the winter and calving season. What a wonderful place.

However on my last trip to South Dakota it was gone. A sad commentary about the state of agriculture in Iowa.

I will not be taking a picture of what's left.
