just another day...

Well another day has come and gone, and life goes on as it always does. No matter what we do, no matter where we go, life goes on, as it always does. It's what we do and where we do it in the time we have that makes any difference in life each day. We can either go to bed feeling good for what we've done, or haven't done, said or haven't said, or we can go to bed wishing we would have done or said things different, and wonder what it would have changed or accomplished if we did it different. I try to go to bed every night feeling good for what I've accomplished each day and not worry about how it may be different if I would have done things different, because I do the best Ican, with what I have. And somedays I just don't do anything at all, and go to bed feeling good about that also, because we can only do so much and need to take time to sit back and look at life around us, and see what's going on, to see what life is has in store for us. Though, life doesn't always let us know what it has in store for us, no matter how hard we look and try to control it. As the saying goes.... sometimes, lifes a bitch! Every morning I wake up and can't even hold on to a cup of coffee because my hands hurt so fricking bad it isn't funny, and my body feel slike it's been hit by a truck, and can barely get my pills in the spliiter so I can take them, I think just that, lies a real bitch. Then I have my coffee, and think of what I want to do that day, what needs to be done first, and life just goes on......

While I'm at it...

Since I'm bitching I might as well go all the way.
So what's the deal with israel? What gives them the right to continue to bomb during this so called "truce?" Because they think that it's the right thing to do? And why the hell is the US backing their actions? I mean the last I knew, a truce is a truce, no matter what. You don't continue to bomb and kill other's because you think they are trying to help the so called enemy. If you don't have cold, hard facts, and proof that your enemy is still preparing and waging war against you, you don't just go start bombing them all over again. You then becaome the one breakung the truce, and deserve to be punished for it, not the other side. If that were the case, we'd still be waging war against China, Russia, North Korea, Japan and god knows who else. There's be no end to the cold war for damn sure.
The US needs to start taking care of their own people, states and cities that really need the help and suport before we spend a damn penny overseas anywhere. We have enough problems of our own to take care of before we can feel obliged to help out other countries that can't control their own inner problems. We have enough poor, homeless, and dying citizens, and veterans, that we owe a debt to, long before we need to go help out others. If we don't take care of our own, what good are we to take care of others in other countries? Hell, because of our own stupidity half the countries we supposedly provide aid for hate us as it is. So why are we even there? We need a president, and a government, local and federal, that really gives a damn about our own people and is willing to care for our own before putting others first in line, that's what we really need. A real "made in America, for America" attitude and goal.

Here we go again...

If it wasn't for the VA, I admit, I wouldn't be here today more than likely. But, it seems that I am getting back in to the same rut I was going through a while back, not getting my medication on time. For some reason it's up to me to call my doctor and let them know when it's time to refill my pain medication. Which I do, 10 days in advance as requested, but once again it seems they get to damn busy to check their phone messages, or just forget to submit the damn refill. I went through all this shit about a year ago, and went through a good 6 months of getting my medication late beacuae the doctor, or Physicians Assistant, was to damn busy doing other things to check their phone messages, even though they tell you every damn time to call them.This is a bunch of shit. Yet, if I call more than once, it appears as of I'm being pushy or a pain in tha ass, when all I'm trying to do is ensure I get my medication on time. I bet they'd be making damn sure themselves that they'd get thier medication on time if they were a patient as me, and others. No question about it. But turn the table as it is, and the patient becomes nothing but annoying or bitchy.
And here the VA Medical system is suppose to be one of the best in the country. I would normally agree and have nothing but praise for the medical personnel. But it seems that things are changing a bit to fast and the budget cuts are getting to be to much, for "Quality Care" to even be considered. I have been going to the VA for medical treatment for over 15 years now, and I can't believe that there's been any improvement. Not when it's the patients responsibility to make their own appointments, be required to call and request their medications be sent every month, and everything else. Where's the automation for a quicker and more reliable service, the quality care, not to mention the patient and doctor relationship. Must be somewhere else, because as of late, it sure as hell isn't in the VA medical treatment and support area.

There's got to be a better way

There's got to be a better way to get rid of moles..... I am now up to my 10th mole being trapped. I really do hate this..... but I don't know what else to do. You can't live trap them and take them elsewhere and let them go, it's against the law, as is with other animals or pests. Can't use other means as poison or such, it'd harm more than just the moles. If I had the money and ability, I'd put a blockade around my entire yard, a costly expense I can't afford. Even just to do around part of the yard wouldn't matter, they just go around it or under it if it isn't deep enough as I've already tried and discovered. I've bured both chicken wire and boards below a good portion of the fence going around the backyard, but, they go right under and through, ruining some of our flower and vegetable gardens. I've been left with the only other alternative of using the Loop Trap, which works, but just seems cruel.
There's got to be a better way.......

This is not about you.........

I just can't believe it. It doesn't make sense to me. I must of missed something somewhere in life as I grew up. Just when will we ever learn that starting a war over anything, basically, is a waste of human life and dignity. Where is there pride in shooting another person, blowing up a home or multi-home complex like apartments, condo's or what have you, destroying an entire city or even country, because we simply don't agree with what they think or believe in. What gives anyone the right to judge another's culture or religion? Who are we to set the guidlines for how the world should live, act, celebrate or embrace their religous choice?
The last I understood it, all men were created equal, all humanity has the right to live their life in the way that they choose, to worship their Almighty in the way they deem proper, or to not believe in religion at all.
Who are we to set the standards and make judgement on others? Who has the right to say what is right and what is wrong, in living life as we see fit to live as individuals? When did any of us turn in to God, or other Almighty, that allows us to judge and punish others because they didn't do what we wanted them to do, speak in a language so that we could understand them better, or worship us as their God or Almighty?
Just who are we?
