No on Kroger Move

The vote allows Kroger to proceed with its 2½-year-old plan to move across Secor Road from its current location at 4533 Monroe St. to property now owned by the Sisters of Notre Dame, in Toledo, Ohio! The vote was 10-2, with councilmen Peter Ujvagi and Sandy Spang against. To all those who voted yes, it is my hope the voters will NOT vote for you in the next election. I will work hard in my district to help defeat Lindsay Webb. She is not and never has been a good representative of the whole district. She cares more about where she lives in the Point Place area. She did nothing to help us with the Alexis-Telegraph area. But this is about Monroe St. and Secor Rd. and no amount of money is worth the damage that will be done by this move. Shame on you all for this vote, because you’ll never see my vote again!

My Chart Support

I just had a thought about this app that I have. I can check out the results of a test without having to wait for the Doctor to tell me. So here is the question that floated into my head, what if the result was bad! Would they post it for you to see? I can just imagine sitting down to look at test results and learn you are dieing of whatever! I really do like this mychartsupport@promedica.org method of getting medical information for the routine stuff. I can look up everything I don’t understand and have a list of questions to ask my Doctor when I do see him. It saves time in the office as the Doctor doesn’t need to tell me what I already know! So we are back to the possible bad news results, is that really how I want to learn about it! Do you have chart support, do you like it? If you don’t have it, would you like to have it? This techno world is coming at us in warp speed, time to get on board and soar!

Mar-a-Lago Winter White House

Almost every week-end since he has become President, he has upset the residents of Palm Beach, Florida!  “The Secret Service is no longer allowing residents of Algoma Road, Kings Road, and Woodbridge Road to access their residences from the south checkpoint (Southern Boulevard) and now must utilize the north checkpoint (South Ocean Boulevard).” According to CNN Politics it is not a good place to be these days! Speaking about Mar-a-Lago,  “If you are a member there, you aren’t going to take a negative position (on Trump), because you would soon be an ex-member,” said Jack McDonald, the former mayor of Palm Beach and a former member of the club. And over at the Airport, some pilots just aren’t understand that the air space has restrictions, just like the roads. I could go on and on about this topic, but I’m already bored, my Blood Pressure is rising, and I am about to puke! I’m just sayin………………!!!

Original Baby Names in 2016

While I was reading the local Sunday Edition of our Newspaper, I opened the section titled Living! There on the back page of this section are pictures of babies born in 2016, I thought I have one also, my grandson Brock will be 1 on March 17, 2017! Then I began to take notice of the names of these babies, and I stopped to catch my breath. What is in a name like this, “Marselena”? So I tried to find out the meaning of this name and found out nothing about its origin! Then I saw this name, Aubriana, it is an “English baby name. In English the meaning of the name Aubriana is: Rules with elf-wisdom.” OK, that was interesting, I wonder what her nickname will be? Then I noticed this name, Isla Delia, she is 1 of a set of triplets. Ok, this is what I learned, “Isla is a feminine given name traditionally of primarily Scottish usage, derived from “Islay”, which is the name of an island off the west coast of Scotland.” I think of these kids and how much will they love or hate their names as they grow up! Oh sure there will always be the Jane, Judy, Sue, Dick, Jim names, but the kids today are as individual as their names! So, what name have you heard of that made you take notice and want to learn where it came from?

Hold on….for just a little while!

Just a little while, can someone tell me how to measure that amount of time? How long is a while or how long is soon? If someone says, in just a minute, I can look down at my watch and see when that minute is up! How do I look down at that same watch and know when soon is up? Or here is another common word, shortly, “the Doctor will be with you shortly!” How am I to measure shortly?  Yesterday after I was checked into the Emergency Room, I asked how much longer I need to wait, they said, “just a while longer”, that turned into 1 hour! After I was in a room it was more whiles, soons and moments,  in the end it added up to 7 hours! And on another measure of time, what good is a sign that says “Will return in 5 minutes” um, if you don’t say when that 5 minutes began, I could be waiting 1, 2, 3, 4 or all 5 minutes for your return! Tic Tock, Tic Tock, goes the clock!

Word for the day=ebullient

Ok, I really thought I could figure out this word in a book I’m reading, NOT! Ok, here is the sentence, “Evan himself had been ebullient on both Thursday and Friday nights, and Colin suspected that it might have had something to do with the whole salsa dancing is a sensual thing, but it wasn’t his place to ask.”

So, to be sure I looked it up and this is what I found. “Someone who is ebullient is bubbling over with enthusiasm, so it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that the adjective ebullient derives from the Latin verb ebullire, which means “to bubble out.” (The stem bullire is an ancestor of our word boil and derives from bulla, the Latin word for “bubble.”)

I happen to love learning new words, I really increased my vocabulary when I was playing Words With Friends on Facebook. Just think if I would learn one new word a day and then use it how much I could improve my verbage! Oops! Guess I got that one wrong!

18 Wheels A-Rolling

On the 1st Day of Truckin,
my rig was bought for me!

On the Second day of Truckin,
The stop sign I did not see!

On the Third day of Truckin,
I blew a Red Light!

On the Forth day of Truckin,
I blocked traffic so I could make a WIDE turn!

So you see where this is going, no need to count anymore days! Most, not all Truckers have an attitude of I’m bigger than you, therefore I can do whatever I want to! The 2nd, 3rd and 4th things really did happen the past 3 days! Please be careful out on the roads, I paid for the use of them also! I don’t want the;
12th Day of Truckin,
To be my last day on earth,
because you were bigger and badder than I am!

Tis the season but not a reason, to be stupid!
