Sorry I am posting this kind of late today after taking Drew to work I had to go out to Whitewater to get my daughter she has a doctors appointment today. I hope everyone's week has gone good for them. Sorry to say not for me I came down all congested but thankfully it is already going away slowly. Here are you questions.
1) How many times a day do you check your e-mail?
2) Do you have different notebooks laying around your house with notes in them?
3) Do you check your mailbox everyday?
4) When you are on your computer do you have the t.v. or music going in the background?
She said my case had pushed her to the brink and it was either quit, or commit suicide. "Chicken," I said.
Ha, no. She is retiring, but as she put it "because she'd been promoted to grandmother." She sent all of her clients a letter last month and gave us six months notice. She was so generous with the notice time because she acknowledges the psychiatric shortage in our area. I saw her yesterday, Feb. 3, probably for the last time, although a May appointment was scheduled for me, she wants me seeing a different mental health care provider by then.
When I told her I hadn't made an appointment with anybody yet, she pulled out a printout and circled some doctors' names, and crossed out others. The third psychiatrist she recommended for me was "telepsychiatry." I never heard of it before.
It looks a little odd, but I think I could get used to it. Being the provider, I mean.
It'd be cool to have, like, Alfred Hitchcock for a telepsychiatrist.
I'm willing to try it to see if it helps. I'd better see the same shrink every time, or fuck that shit. That would seem like customer service more than healthcare provision.
Soon, we'll be talking to robots instead of humans. Maybe we already are.
I ask because, provided I live that long, this year I turn 65, the age which I traditionally associated with "Senior Citizen." I never had grandparents to interact with, so I guess the default retirememnt age became my default geezer age.
I think AARP starts accepting members at age 50.
Over the past decade or so, I've become more and more comfortable about asking if there's a senior citizen discount. My mentor at the muffler and brake shop would be proud of me.
You might have read some coverage of the current planet lineup in the morning sky. All five naked eye planets are visible at the same time in the pre-dawn sky. They are pretty spread out with Jupiter being about 120 degrees from Mercury.
Mercury is the tough one to catch, but it is coming up fairly early now and is pretty bright so the next week is a pretty good time to track it down before it starts getting lower in the sky and fading.
I went out this morning and took some shots. Nowhere special, just outside my house since I didn't feel like driving anywhere. Here they are with the planets labeled. The Moon is just above Saturn. Each morning the Moon will move farther east and end up down by Mercury and Venus Saturday morning before leaving the morning sky.
Hopefully you will have some clear skies to check them out!
Hello, my sopping and snowed dears. I have a 9:40 appointment in Kenosha. Time to follow my own advice: slow down. What I hate are guys with those huge 4 X 4's that ride your ass, their headlights aimed right at your rear view mirror. I slow down and pull over to the right for them. I'd rather that than another rear-end accident.
So far, our winter hasn't been too bad. (Knock on wood.) There's still plenty of time for subzero temps and bitter wind chills. Stay tuned to the weatherman or woman. The sky is falling and we're all going to die. When we're all dead, who will the weathermen broadcast to? Sea gulls and geese?
I think maybe we'll exist for another few decades. After that, all bets are off. Unless we change our ways, I don't see us as long term stewards of the planet. It's that damned fossil fuel dependency, as deadly as any junky's habit. It will suck us dry until all of our humanity is gone. Wars have been fought for millennia over this area, and not always for oil. To many, this is the Holy Land. Therefore the constant tumult and strife. Death. Kill. Death, has been the predominant tone. All religions preach peace, all are soaked in blood. The sheep conveniently ignore that fact. Their religions are like their favorite football teams: essentially the same, but with enough minor differences that the bloodthirsty exploit for profit.
So the fighting goes on and on and on. So much money to be made by not just weapons manufacturers, but the entire sea of support and logistics. From the soldier's boot to the airplane's engines, they all have to be paid for. War is money. This allows hundreds, if not thousands, of support products to be produced. Better living through war. Better war through death.
How depressing! I can't leave you like that. I love you guys too much for that. Here's a Readers Digest joke:
"A therapist has a theory that couples who make love once a day are the happiest. So he tests it at a seminar by asking those assembled, 'How many people here make love once a day?' Half the people raise their hands, each of them grinning widely. 'Once a week?' A third of the audience members raise their hands, their grins a bit less vibrant. 'Once a month?' A few hands tepidly go up. Then he asks, 'OK, how about once a year?'
"One man in the back jumps up and down, jubilantly waving his hands. The therapist is shocked—this disproves his theory. 'If you make love only once a year,' he asks, 'why are you so happy?'
"The man yells, 'Today’s the day!'"
That's it, my dears. I love you all and thank you for reading my blog this week, Love, love, love, all you need is love.
I was thinking of something to post for some time now and I decided to go through all of my wildflower pictures and pick out some of the better pictures to post from over the years. I will be starting with when I first started taking the pictures back in 2012. Yes I have been taking the pictures to share with everyone for four years and I can't even believe this.
This is a picture of the very first Water Lily I had ever taken and the picture was taken at Tichigan Wildlife Refuge in Tichigan Wi on 6-3-2012. I have seen the flower before but never took a picture of it until this day.
This is the first time I ever seen or heard of this flower it is the Yellow Monkey Flower this picture was taken at Meyers Park in Racine Wi on 8-17-2013.
This is a picture of a Wild Rose this picture was taken at Richard Bong State Recreational Area in Brighton Wi 6-28-2013. I remember this day it was raining and yes we are crazy enough to go out in the rain to get some pictures.
This is a picture of a Perennial Pea this picture was taken on Shelter Valley Rd in Forest County 7-4-2014. This is one of the times we went up north and took one day to go out driving around looking for pictures of birds and flowers.
This is a picture of a Crested Dwarf Iris this picture was taken at Richard Bong State Recreational Area in Brighton Wi 6-17-2015. This is one of my favorite flowers to go looking for.
This is a picture of a Crinum Timeless Lily this picture was taken at Whitewater University College in Whitewater Wi 7-6-2015. I was there my daughter had an appointment so her step sister and I went driving around the campus looking at the flowers to get some pictures. her step sister and I had a blast just driving around the campus and we almost go ourselves lost. Why sit in the parking lot bored when you can drive around.
I hope everyone enjoys the pictures I just thought this may brighten up you day and hope that Spring comes soon.
