herpes is forever, garden, chickens, textingdriving

HERPES IS FOREVER
looks like herpes may be forever
researchers just discovered that the herpes virus hsv1may
contribute to alzheimers disease by an interaction of the hsv1
virus and a precursor to amyloid (which is deposited in
brain in alzheimers)
it may be long term chronic infections with hsv1 can affect these
deposits
chronic hsv1 is treatable with medications

no was tested am negative

GARDEN
this rain we had here sure perked up the garden
its like giving the plants viagra
beans and corn that were replanted have suddenly appeared
and the veggies in the garden-onions, tomatoes, peppers,
egg plant, and squash-have grown in one day

there is something about the rain and an electrical storm to make
things grow
have even seen wildflowers especially the flame wheel or mexican
blanket suddenly pop out everywhere
even the birds seem happier and more active

with this growth be on the watch for those bad bugs
dont use sevin dust or other poisons on your plants
stay organic

CHICKENS
there is the funky chicken coop tour coming up in austin soon
you can look at their website http://fccooptour.blogspot.com/
the tour is saturday april 23, 2011 10 am to 4 pm

if you think you want chickens it may be worth the tour

you can also see a story on a local family with chickens from
klru at the klru website

just finished an egg for breakfast that was laid yesterday
yumyum

TEXTDRIVING
now the state legislature is making a law so that is illegal to
text or send email while driving

now that aint right
not the law but texting and email while driving
how do you do that
i tried to do it while driving in my pasture in my old beat up
pickup truck so if i wrecked it or hit something no noticeable
damage would be done (my old truck has been in those
situations a lot and shows all of the scars)
i almost killed myself

i have enough trouble texting while sitting in my chair in the
living room much less while driving

oh yea they decided to let it be legal to read emails and texts
that aint right either
why dont you just read a book while you are at it when driving

some things are stupid

  1. What about Shingles? Is that a precursor to amyloid?

  6. I agree that texting is dumb while driving..... and I am dumbfounded as to why the law didnt make it illegal to read emails/texts while driving also; both require taking your eyes off the road and at least one hand off the steering wheel.
