happy anniversary, thanks congress, fb, mri

today is the first anniversary of this blog
it was started one saturday afternoon after my wife she
watched a show on public tv about a women who started
blogging about her life as she was going through a bad time
in her life
her blog caught on and she has now over a million followers

i told my wife she that i had always wanted to do that
so i did my first blog that day
i originally wanted to do it on organic living, green living, medical
topics, life as a family doctor, and other things

little did i know things would change in a few months when i
added alzheimers disease to the list and did less on life as a
family doctor

i have had almost 50000 viewings of my blog in the first year
my most popular blogs have been about my story from last winter
and my most recent posting on the three part blog of my story
final answer

80% of my viewers are from the usa with 20% from foreign
countries with russia, england, germany, and japan as the most
visited from nations

thanks to you the readers of this blog for taking time to read it
at times i find this blog therapeutic to write and always enjoyable to

i hope to make you smile each day but also to educate you on
things in this blog

thanks again

i also would like to thank congress for getting us into this big
mess that we are in now
we have been downgraded to aa from aaa by s & p
guess our fica scores dropped down also

from fb posting i found this entry if pro and con are opposites
then the opposite of progress is congress

this says it all

whats scary is that we are in much better shape than most
countries and that other countries are buying our bonds even
though they are barely paid any interest because they feel that
their money is safer here in the us than other countries

if they dont do something about this mess i plan to vote against
all incumbents in the next election-thatll show them huh

am so ready for football
went to the cowboy camp on saturday
they didnt look very good
hope things get better
it was nice and cool in the alamodome though

exhibition games start this week
cant wait

have an mri of the brain today as part of the adni study
during the 5 years of this study i will have 4 of these done

this mri especially looks at the volume of the hippocampus
the hippocampus is on the undersurface of the brain and is
where short term memory occurs
changes in its size occurs in early alzheimers
