Crickets and Meandering Migraines

Migraines are wonderful.

They are wonderful for screwing up your schedule, causing immense pain, and terrorizing your life. 

I am ill and migraines are a cyclical answer my body gives me about the condition I am in. It's not pretty. Sometimes, it's just not something that is easily overcome.

With this last round this week, I found myself in the dark with no noise and plenty of ice packs, only to be serenaded by a cricket in my closet. I moved my shelving. I squirted him with some watered down apple cider vinegar... nothing would shut him up! 

Finally, I banged on the wall a few times and he got the message. I was so not interested in him as a man. He needed to hop to another bar. 

So after he got out of my closet and into another part of house, or he got eaten by a kitty, my migraine left my head. Well, head. Then the pain went down to my left shoulder. It stayed there for a long time. Then as the pain was exiting my shoulder it went to my left wrist and eventually to my left ankle. 

You're guess is as good as mine. 

I hope you have a great and wonderful, pain free, day!

Tomorrow will be 1m29s shorter

Autumn cometh! 

October is my favorite time of year, so I will post how the days get shorter in anticipation of fall. 

What is disturbing is that stores are already placing their Halloween items out. I do not believe autumn should start at the end of July. I don't believe Xmas shopping should happen until the Monday after Thanksgiving. 

It feels that Americans have gotten away from the joy of the holidays. Halloween is to dress up and spend time with your friends. Children should believe October 31st is a magical night that will give them memories for a lifetime. 

Thanksgiving should be a time of celebration and giving thanks. Gratitude for all the sacrifices people have made to make America great, while not forgetting the terrible things that befell the First Nations who are now on reservations. 

Christmas and other end of year holidays should not come at the expense of other holidays or traditions. I mean, really, do we need Black Friday? 

No, course we do not. 

What we need are a nation of people who care and have moral/ethical behavior. A 99c flat screen tv is not worth the time a father or mother has to be at work to serve you and be away from their kids during the Thanksgiving holiday. 

We should be paying a fair wage so no one has to work on the holidays. Or, receive food stamps. Or, live out of their vehicle., 

While I love October, Halloween, the holidays make me think about how I conduct myself around the holiday season.

What will you do to make the season brighter for someone else?

Writing about Controversy sends Stats Up

I should bitch out foreign governments on my blog more. 

It was fun to watch my reaction to being told I was responsible for an EU law make my stats sore to new heights. Did I hit a nerve? Or do more people want to hear the truth?

Art, writing, creativity in general are supposed to reflect humanity back onto itself. So we can see other people's perspectives and walk in their shoes. Tonight, I decided to take a stand against a law that has nothing to do with me. 

If someone comes to my blog, that is their choice. If blogger or other third parties have applications or wares that can be used with their sites/blogs, well those are people's freedom of choice to have them or not. I have software to tell me if a site is not safe but I can go if I choose to do so. 

Same thing with my blog. If you choose to come here and read, great. Thank you very much for your patronage. If not, well perhaps next time.

But to make a blogger list about cookies, it's bullshit. 

My computer, my internet connection... my responsibility if I go here or there. Next webmasters will have to list their underwear sizes and that is just unseemly. Keep it to yourselves, folks.

So that is why I had the reaction I did earlier. It is NOT my responsibility to tell you everything about my blog. It is the surfer's responsibility to make intelligent, educated choices. 

I use software to keep me safe. EU, why don't you? 

I guess it is time to resurrect Radio Active Dawn. Full of opinions and cuss words about the abysmal governance of unelected/elected politicians. 

Have a great and wonderful night!

EU, I Could Give a Rat's A$$

So I get back only to find the EU, European Union, making me comply with their laws:

If you want to know about cookies on this site, ask Blogger. I have no idea. I don't know the laws over there and I don't want to know. It's bad enough over here with all the nonsense laws being passed for corporate control. 

If you are in the EU, you better get your government under control.

As for Americans, this example is what people are talking about World Government. 

Get Involved. Reject Corporateacracy. Break up Mass Monopolies.

 Thank you.
