Passion, Passionate, Not-so-much

When you look up these words here is some of what it says “excitableemotionalfieryvolatilemercurialquick-temperedhigh-strungimpulsivetemperamental!” Years ago I would say Yup, that is me to a tee! And even now that I am a geriatric, part of me is still like that, only not-so-much! I have some very strong feelings on a variety of issues and am happy too share them when the opportunity arises. As of late, with so many different issues grabbing my attention, my brain sometimes gets muddled! Seems like every November 1, I’m sick of politics, all the commericals, junk mail, lies, debates, half-truths! The only time I was excited about this date is the 3 times I was on the ballot, as a candidate for the school board! I have thought about running for a few different positions, then, not-so-much! Maybe if I were younger, but my geriatric brain says, oh no you don’t! What I would like to do is serve on a Jury! I have never been part of this process, it is one thing we older folks would do well! Plus, we retired people have the time to devote to this much needed service to our fellow man! So why haven’t I been summoned to serve, how does the system work. Here I am Ohio, Lucas County I only have another 6 years until I’m 75! That is the oldest you can be to serve! Why? That’s age discrimination!  One may not run for a seat on any Ohio court if one is more than 70 years of age! Not fair!

“Men” Working?

Men Working Ahead Caution Standing Floor Sign


I think these signs need to be updated. This was how it was years and years ago, but not today! A better sign would read “Caution Work Crew Ahead”! I see women working on our roads all the time! Please join me in getting these sign to read more gender truthful! Call or write everyone and anyone who can help us correct this wrong! This is one bandwagon you should jump on!

Make it fair to everyone!

What the heck is that you are asking? It is an organism in a partnership with another such that each profits from their being together. Just like in the TV show Stargate SG-1.  Teal’c  carries an infant symbiote in his belly pouch that serves as an incubator for a larval Goa’uld!

So why is this of interest to me? Because for some time now I have said it feels like a Symbiote has taken up space in my upper belly area! Just under my right breast near the middle! It usually comes alive after eating but not always. Sometimes it hurts but mostly it just feels like something moving inside me! Everything I found on a search says it could be related to the heart. I’ve told my Doctor about and we are experimenting with some different meds! Next will be a blood test before I see him the next time! I sure hope we can get this thing under control!

Pharmaceuticals Ripoff

Give you the facts, you say, just the facts Madame! OK!

Fact #1 – 1 tube of cream costs $1.25

Fact #2 – 1 tube of cream costs $0.79

Fact #3 – 1 tube if combined costs $112.00

In what world do these people think that is OK?

I’m talking about Qualitest Pharmaceuticals out of Huntsville, AL. 35811 which by the way is now Endo Pharmaceuticals!

It’s no wonder we have no faith in Pharmaceutical Companies and Insurance Companies! I’m just tongue tied-too upset to get all my thoughts in order! This is just wrong on every level!

What does the word passion mean, strong and barely controllable emotion, that’s what! So, what are you passionate about? I have many things I am passionate about, as this blog will attest to! In this moment, I am passionate about living my life in the moment! You see, three days ago I became 69 years old! As I entered my final year in the decade of the 60’s, I had my Ah-Ha moment! This may sound vain, but I look in the mirror and I do not see a 69-year-old face looking back at me! As I am in my moment, just now I heard this come on the television!  Have you had your Ah-Ha moment today?Don't waste your time looking back at what you've lost. Move on, life is not meant to be traveled backwards.

Trump or Hitler Photo on Facebook!

Ronnie, I respect your right to your political opinions that are not of the same perspective as those of mine or of those of my wife, Judy Hansen. Neither Judy nor I have ever attacked you personally or belittled you or disrespected you.
I find it appalling that you do not show us the same respect as we have shown you.
I am extremely disappointed and very irritated by your post on Judy’s Facebook wall in which you wrote:

“Judy I find this post disgusting, morbid, and I am sure you forgot about the millions of millions of our people who were slaughtered by the ideology of this maniac. I am ashamed of your loose tongue and disconnected brain.”

Shame on you for belittling my wife!

Thank you to my husband for coming to my defense!

I had to bite my tongue for 8 years of the bashing of the former President because I had a connected brain that held my tongue in check. To all those who now have a problem with what I had to deal with, get ready for 3 1/2 more years of it! Why shouldn’t I call a spade a spade, or a heart a heart, or a bad man what he is? My opinion is just that, mine!

“Make It Count”

Mother of Charlottesville victim Heather Heyer: “They tried to kill my child to shut her up, well guess what, you just magnified her….say to yourself ‘What can I do to make a difference?’ And that’s how you’re going to make my child’s death worthwhile. I’d rather have my child but by golly if I gotta give her up we’re gonna make it count.”

Make it count, the next time you vote!

Make it count, stand up for what’s right!

Make it count, stop defending Trump!

Make it right, say it like U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders did, “It is not asking very much to have president who sees neo-Nazis marching and says, “This is disgusting. This is ugly and I condemn it, absolutely.”

I was going to keep this Make it Count going, but you get the message by now! I was going to link to Jimmie Kimmel but you know how to find it! I don’t want any links to take away from the reason we need to make it count and that is Heather Heyer! Remember her name, she was a compassionate believer in justice and equality, keep her spirit alive.
