this morning i sat to write this blog and i looked at my
weekly planner that i usually do every weekend to plan
what ill do my blog on that week
sometimes i will change the topic on a whelm based on some
facebook posting that catches my eye or a twitter twit or a
newspaper report or sometimes just something some one says

but today
its all about nothing
as this weekend i was totally wiped out by the gis
i mean down for the count
like when i was totally stoned by the drugs vicodin and valium
when i first ruptured my disk
of course i didnt really remember those days but
i sure remember this weekend whenever i was awake
cause when i was awake i had to be really awake or i would
be in trouble as i made my dashes to the bathroom

because of this 3 day wipe out from the gis i didnt do the planner
so i havent really caught up with everything yet
so here i am looking at a blank planner
so its about nothing today
like seinfelds show its all about nothing

this time has made me think about a lot this week

we still have a long way to go in america
we havent came a long way baby

we need immigration reform
womens health care and child heath care improvements
(the south has a hiv problem thats maybe worst than the rest of
the world     now thats sad real sad and its tied to womens
health care)
we have an educational debt problem in the us and a college
system thats gotten out of control
we are ruining a generation of kids with this debt
and they cant get jobs with their degrees
weve lost ourselves in two wars that may be one of the big reasons
besides wall street corruption that we are in such debt
dont blame bush or obama
we should blame ourselves
we vote the decision makers in office

we are on the cusp of treatments and cures
im on the cusp of these treatments and cures
im early enough if i do have alzheimers diesease that these treatments
may work on me but if it takes longer there is really not much i can
do to slow things down significantly
it just doesnt make sense that they are doing all these studies on people
who are more advanced since it appears that nothing will really work
when the stages get more advanced
think cancer in the later stages
treatment needs to be started in the middle age years
please start more studies in that age group
i know that thats starting to happen since new tests can identify
people at risk and people probably who have asymptomatic
please speed things up ok

we need football all year round
maybe the pros could play from february until august
and the colleges from august to february

the country n
weve lived here now for 12 years
and have loved every day weve lived here
it fits our life style and i think it says who we are
green laid back couple who doesnt really care about a lot of
the other things people think are important
we are quite satisfied with our organic garden organic xeriscape
rainwater harvesting solar power native landscape with all its
native birds insects yes even grasshoppers
since they are part of the cycle of life
we love it all


this recent 3 day episode of the gis coupled with the 2 months of
the sciatica pain has made at least me realize that the day will come
when we wont be able to live here even though we love it here
there is a  lot of maintenance on the property

the rainwater system has to be maintained on a regular basis to
keep it working properly
filters changed ultraviolet lights changed the system flushed and
sterilized on a regular basis
gutters kept cleaned out
lines drained
sock filters changed frequently as the water goes into the storage tanks
water moved around to keep the water levels even
of course none of this is written down anywhere at least not yet
but i plan to cause no one will ever find all the valves and  tricks to
maintaining this system

its really all worth living her for now

then i realize that my wife she
shes a special person
especially these last 2 months
i guess im going to owe her one huh

nothing all about nothing
