bits and pieces

it is thought that one of the reasons were all have
health problems is that we are such germophobes
it appears that we need some of these germs to keep
our defenses built up against infections

this am dy posted a funny item on facebook
that i think about a lot
i use to tell my patients something like this
you know like the five second rule

first child eats dirt
parent calls doctor
second child eats dirt
parent cleans out mouth
third child eats dirt
parent wonders if she really needs to feed him lunch

ive always said that good  compost smells good enough
to eat
in fact recently when i took a handful of my compost from
my compost pile
i thought as i looked around to see if anyone was looking
of course out here where we live there is no one looking
i started to take a big bite out of that compost
but i didnt

wonder if the bacteria in compost that helps make it work
would work like a probiotic

after the weather the last month here at the country n
i am 100% sure that i never ever want to live where its
cold like this in the winter

i know how cold or bad a winter we have
based on my firewood consumption

each year i buy a cord of firewood from hippie steve
who use to look like an old hippie
im sure he was one
he delivers our wood and plays that good on 60s and 70s
music as he is unloading and stacking it
i think hes hard of hearing from whatever he use to do
in his younger days

last year at the end of the year i had 1/4 of the cord of wood left
now as of today i only have 1/4 a cord of wood left
and will probably have to get more to get through the winter

that plus i got my electric bill from last month

the new f word
is fracking
we all are not stupid
if you mess with mother nature there are not good things that happen
if you f the earth and inject all that water down there
and the earth shakes where it doesnt usually shake
thats callled an earthquake

most intelligent people would conclude that fing causes earthquakes

please dont play all of us out here as stupid

then after the target mishap
is is debit or credit
clark howard says no to debit card use but yes to credit card
dave ramsey says no to credit card but yes to debit card

since i hate to carry cash around
and i have found that i stay on budget by using the debit card
and since i keep only whats necessary in my account
i will use the credit card for online use restaurant use purchases
that need some back up guarantee eg i used my american express
for purchase of our refrigerator then went online and paid the
american express charge the same day
and when traveling and making reservations

i will use the debit card for gas and groceries and other local

this all seems to work for me
