Trying to do some politics….

Well…with everything happening, I really haven’t had the mindset to do too much in politics but I am going to try now….there was some good news on the idiot trump from the other day when the NY times reported that Paul Manafort has been warned that he is going to be indicted for his many crimes and that I hope has to do with trumps campaign and the Russian money that was spent to elect him….it appears that they have Manafort on quite a few counts and now the squeeze is on to get him to flip on the rest of the trump criminal enterprise….with revealing that Facebook has been issued warrants to go after the ad buys that the Russians did to interfere, that leaves Jared Kushner on the hotseat since it was his job to do the social media portion of the campaign especially the “micro targeting” that swung the 77,000 votes that got the idiot elected. So, as I’ve said before, the noose is quickly tightening on trump and his cronies….and the deliciousness of a perp walk for this crew is growing ever closer…maybe a “Thanksgiving surprise”…impeach….

My stress is through the roof….

Well….It has not been a good day for me today with the uncertainty of my first SS payment being made on time tomorrow….I just know there is going to be a glitch and I am going to be scrambling again to just survive….I did make a little cash yesterday so I can pay the electric bill next Tuesday but there will be no food until I figure out the glitch and get it fixed…okay, that’s not true… I do have 11 dollars for food but only have 11 days to get things fixed so I can pay my rent on the 1st…. and didn’t sleep at all last night and tonight appears to be the same….oh, well….I guess I’ll take it as it comes…

September 19th

Well…running really early today since I’ve been up since 5 or so….still worried about theĀ  cash ending up in my account tomorrow….not sure what I’ll do if it doesn’t….slept okay last night and woke up with a sore right shoulder so I must have slept on it….didn’t get much done yesterday but have a nice HH with T….always fun to hang out with her…lots of laughs and good conversation….but then back here and did nothing for the rest of the day….the Lions did win last night so that was cool but I didn’t get through the game…just not interested enough to stay up til 12:30….not much to do today….might just clean some today but it looks like it’s going to rain so I may take the day off the bike….more later…..

They’re at it again….

Well…get your phone fingers ready again…the repubs are at it again…trying to take healthcare away from 25 million people…again. Here’s the thing….no one wants this to happen…over 70% of the people polled want the ACA to be fixed, not destroyed…so, who are the repubs doing this for? Hospitals don’t want it, doctors don’t want it, the insurance companies don’t want it….and the 25 million people who will lose their insurance sure as hell don’t want it….this is a huge mistake for the repubs…the only thing that will come out of this is Medicare for all and the insurance companies know it…so, I wonder why we haven’t heard a lot from them against this debacle? Could it be that they have cut some kind of deal with the repubs to keep quiet? One of the most egregious cuts in this new piece of crap is the subsidies that make insurance affordable…they will be gone tomorrow if we let this pass….and without them, no one will be able to afford health insurance in the private market…but, that’s just what the repubs want…if you’re not rich enough to afford insurance without the subsidies, you can just go to hell and die…..dial the phone and be heard….

September 18th

Well….feel really crappy today and I’m not sure why…okay, I am sure why but I’m not sure about the severity….didn’t do anything out of the ordinary so I guess I’ll just have to live with it….I am getting a little nervous about my SS payment that is supposed to be Wed….if it doesn’t happen, I’m not going to be able to eat…or do anything else….the car is out of gas and I need to get out to have lunch with T today….hmmm….had an okay day yesterday but didn’t do much….today will probably be the same but I do need to work out and ride the bike…..more later…..

September 17th

Well…had a nice day yesterday with hanging out with the guys but it took a lot out of me…and I am feeling it today…and it was a 70 mile round trip out and back…it did charge the battery in the car so that was cool….but I am down to 3 dollars in my pocket until wed and that is not cool….and the past month with no cash has been a trial…I really am hoping that the money will be there wed since I don’t know what I’ll do if there is a screw up….the F1 race is on in a few minutes and it looks like a wet one so that should be interesting….I do need to get out on the bike right after the race since Man U plays at 11….and it is against Everton with Wayne Rooney coming back to Old Trafford after being traded…but I need more coffee first….more later….

September 16th

Well…running really early today and the weird thing is I’m waiting for the sun to come up to get on the bike…need to get it in early so I can watch F1 qualifying at 9….and there should be soccer on, too…haven’t looked at that yet…Man U isn’t playing until tomorrow…didn’t get anything done yesterday…that’s not right…I did get the car cleaned and I am wondering if it will start….probably not but I can deal with that….feel a little crappy this morning and I hope the coffee will help with that…I am going out to hang out with the group forĀ  the first time in a long time and I wonder how that will go….it will be a nice ride anyway and I have to remember to put some sunscreen on and get my Michigan gear ready….more later….

It didn’t start…

Well…..it didn’t start this morning…so I guess the battery will need to be replaced in the near future….I’ll have to put the starter box in the trunk until next week….I wonder if I still have the receipt in the junk drawer? I did get the car washed and waxed this morning so I guess that is something….more later….

A bit of good news…I found the receipt for the battery and it is only 17 months old…and it has a 36 month free replacement guarantee…so, if it is bad…I’ll get another one for free….yay….I’ll see after the long run out to Spring Lake tomorrow if it is the battery…..still think it’s from not driving it…but, if you run this type of battery dead, it essentially destroys them….

September 15th

Well…feeling a little slow this morning and I guess I earned it….but, I did sleep better last night so maybe that’s a good trade off….it was an okay day yesterday and I did get the bathroom cleaned so that was better than nothing…and I am going to clean the car today after I get more coffee in me….okay…need to go out and see if I can find…nope…the Cassini death is on now…..so I’m going to watch that…be back later for more…

Well…that was poignant moment when the signal from Cassini ended….will do another one on that later today….but, right now I need more coffee and to get going and wash the car…sure hope it starts…more later…

Trail coolness…

Well…with the fog this morning, I hustled to get out on the bike early to be out in it since it just looks cool….but there is one really cool thing about fog….it makes invisible things visible…normally, you never see the spider webs that are in the weeds along the trail but this morning, the droplets in the fog made the hundreds of them visible…and some of them were really cool…just the perfect designs that I marvel at….one thing that happened made me laugh out loud with it’s absurdity….when I was heading across the bridge that leads into the woods, I noticed a couple of deer at full speed off to my left that were going to cross in front of me…the first one made it, flying in one leap across the trail and into the woods…but the second one saw me just as it was getting to the trail and put on the brakes…or tried to put on the brakes…it looked just like a cartoon with the deer backpedaling furiously but with it’s momentum carrying it across the trail until it hit the other side and then took off running…and the only thing that went through my head as I laughed was the deer thinking “I meant to do that”….just too cool….

What you never want to be….
