pay now pay later, kexy, neurology appointment, basketball

if we dont pay now well pay later
am talking about school funding
this state has a lot to loose by not funding education

people are moving to this state  in large numbers
corporations and businesses are moving here in large numbers
will poor funding of schools which will eventually lead to
poor performance slow this growth down
the worse is that the people and the jobs we want to come to this
state could be affected

there is $830 million dollars of stimulus money sitting in
washington waiting for texas to accept it
this money is for texas schools
the governor and other politicians are not doing what needs to
be done to get the money here

my wife shes school district would get $6.5 million of that
guess theres a few jobs, services, or other activities that could be
saved with that money

if we dont provide a good educational system and support
for the students well pay for it later

money spent on children from the prenatal period to 5 years old
is a very critical time
money spent then can prevent $40-50,000 a year it cost to
house an inmate
problem is some of these programs are also being cut

pay now or pay later

was told i was kexy
thought they meant i was sexy
looked it up
guess it wasnt a compliment

would rather be squireferous

youll just have to look it up

today i have a neurology appointment for follow up
after starting the aricept
i also will have my genetic blood work drawn today
thats the first step to help verify a future diagnosis
the test is a dna test for the apoe gene
hoping for the non sucky one

then i will schedule my lumbar punture for the amyloid and tau
proteins that can be abnormal in alzhiemers disease
then after that will have the pet scan done which measures
activity in the brain
people with alzheimers even real early alzheimers have a certain
pattern that shows up on the scan

could be a good month or a bad month

horns beat the aggies
the game was over with early
this could be texass year
next year the draft make suck players away
better enjoy this year
