napa, light bulb, robo potty

no not the trade agreement
this is about a disease that could break  medicare,
medicaid, and other health care systems
it costs  $172 billion a year in total care
it will reach $1 trillion a year in the near future

it is in the top ten causes of death in the usa
it is the only one that has no cure, no way to prevent it,
and no way to slow it down

the baby boomer generation(some of  them are  old flower children) are
bringing this disease much more needed attention

it is alzheimers disease

president obama signed the napa-national alzheimers
project act-into law
it will lead to a strategic plan to overcome the alzheimers disease epidemic

(aricept-donepezil-which i started two weeks ago doesnt slow
the disease progression it only makes the symptoms better
for a few months to a few years)

see www.alz.org for more information

the old light bulb is history now in california
the law took effect 1-1-11
it will save electricity and energy

well here at the country n (thats what we call our place) we are
ahead of california by 10 years
we did this when we first moved in
progressive arent we

except we have one outside super duper bulb that lights up the
yard and property like a light house
it makes my electric meter spin faster when it is on
my wife she insisted on it so she could turn it on if its needed
its probably like the ones at the prisons they turn on when the
prisoners escape

this law will save the consumers over $30 million a year in
energy costs

there will also be less pollution from burning fossil fuels to
create the electricity that would have been created

a similar federal law signed in 2007 will go into effect in 2012

hope they dont repeal that one

the makers of the robo vacuum cleaner has created a robo
bathroom cleaner
it cleans the floors automatically
now if it would just clean that toilet inside and out

my wife she now has her own robo bathroom cleaner :
