About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

Joe Biden is a great gift to the U.S.A. at a very difficult time in our history.

...Joe arrives after 4 years of an embarrassing, self indulged, selfish, and a stupid leader. Joe is the opposite.

He is caring, respected, experienced, intelligent, and a true family man who has been through a great deal. Joe has seen the other side, and has been there. He works well with others and will have help and respect from world leaders and friends of the U.S.A. We are very lucky to have Joe Biden as......

.......President Of The United States of America.

Yes, this has happened before: LAMBIANCE PLAZA CONSTRUCTION FAILURE...Killed 28, Wokers In 1987,

Yes, this happened before in Connecticut ..April 23, 1987 credit goes to flotsam ..at a2nd link below the
article...


The L'Ambiance Plaza collapse was one of the worst disasters in modern Connecticut history. L'Ambiance Plaza was a 16-story residential project under construction in Bridgeport, Connecticut, at the corner of Washington Avenue and Coleman Street. Its partially erect frame completely collapsed on April 23, 1987, killing 28 construction workers.[1][2][3] Failure was possibly due to high concrete stresses on the floor slabs by the placement process resulting in cracking, ending in a type of punch-through failure.[4][5][6][7][8] Several observers suggested the collapse was preventable and highlighted the deficiencies of the lift slab construction technique.[9] This collapse prompted a major nationwide federal investigation into lift slab construction as well as a temporary moratorium on its use in Connecticut.

In November 1988, less than two years after the disaster, a $41 million settlement of all legal claims arising from a disaster was achieved through mediation, avoiding years of potential litigation. Two judges Robert C. Zampano of U.S. District Court and Frank S. Meadow of Connecticut Superior Court mediated the dispute "through informal conferences among nearly 100 lawyers representing the victims' families and 40 contractors and subcontractors".[10]

Polio Vaccine, vs Covid Vaccine....

...Yes, I was around in the mid 50s when the Polio Vaccine was introduced. There was no question about
what to do, no argument about nothing, you got it as soon as you could. At the time there were pictures of people who were in iron lungs for all their lives...It is thoughts of days long gone....

...Yet today we have another crisis. 600,000 deaths In many ways much worse than the 50s

How anyone could not want to get vaccinated is absurd...I don't understand why. How could people be
that stupid and lost in a sea of stupidity...The vaccine is available everywhere and in many places to
get the vaccine is free....This is not some kind of joke or a game of hide and seek...

600,000, deaths is unbelievable...And the vaccine is available everywhere. Our county is shipping the
vaccine to other countries. Very sad indeed..

Could there be intelligent aliens 500 years advanced than us? Some where in the galaxy?

Just 500 years more advanced than us?...Just 500 years?...Could those aliens have created light travel?
Or some other kind of travel around the town?...Think about it...in any possibility. Give it a thought...
_____________________________________________________________________________________

Then think about us talking to someone about what we have accomplished now-- with someone 500 years ago..

(in the late 1500...say 1595...Would they believe the future?..Who would believe this future?...
If you can picture 1595...what will you see?...Think about that one...Then think about 500 years in the
future....See what you see NOW.

Perhaps somewhere out there, there are intelligent life forms...who are 500 years advanced from us...
What would they say, and what would they do with us?....If you cannot imagine that, and the possibilities of that...then what would you say to someone from 1799. Just 200 years..Would they believe what was going to be in 1999?...How many would believe...electricity, cars, indoor plumbing, medical advances, killing machines, airplanes, TV., computers...etc...Think about that for a moment...

Then and only then..might you accept that aliens have visited us...Maybe or maybe not...
...........ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE......YES.....ANYTHING...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
____________________________________________________________________________________
OH.....on that point...Anything is possible...40 years ago...1980....I never thought I would own and
operate a computer......Yes, 1980....Did you imagine you would own and operate a computer and
be communicating across the U.S.A. with it and expressing an opinion with others about the
existence of aliens in the universe.?...Somewhat like talking about ...Star Trek someday being real?

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasky: "I'd rather retire then get a a Covid 19 vaccine"

Source: CNN

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley, in a challenge to the National Football League's new Covid-19 training camp and preseason protocols, tweeted that he'd rather retire than get a vaccine.
"Everyone -- Hi, I'm Cole Beasley and I'm not vaccinated!," he wrote in a post Friday that he called a "Public Service Announcement."

"I will be outside doing what I do," Beasley added. "I'll be out in the public. If your scared of me then steer clear, or get vaccinated. Point. Blank. Period. I may die of covid, but I'd rather die actually living."

The defiant tweet comes on the same week the NFL sent teams a memo highlighting different protocols for vaccinated and unvaccinated.

comment: How does one deal with this total stupidity?..

My guess is these 4 sentences (paragraph 3)

"I will be outside doing what I do," Beasley added. "I'll be out in the public. If your scared of me then steer clear, or get vaccinated. Point. Blank. Period. I may die of covid, but I'd rather die actually living."

Last night I had a problem with an addition I did not realize:..."SALT"

....Five minutes I looked it up and found this answer to the question...Is salt addictive?

Salt is a highly addictive taste. Our brains and bodies are designed to enjoy salt because it's necessary to survival. Over the course of human history, finding salt was difficult, so craving salt was a survival mechanism...

Then I asked this question...Why is salt important? (I found this on the internet...)

Salt plays a crucial role in maintaining human health. It is the main source of sodium and chloride ions in the human diet. Sodium is essential for nerve and muscle function and is involved in the regulation of fluids in the body. Sodium also plays a role in the body's control of blood pressure and volume.

I got a bag of tortilla chips yesterday...and couldn't stop.....Yes, I have had "high blood pressure" and
other problems..far more serious.. I somehow thought I could control that bag of chips. I couldn't....
..........Does that sound familiar?.........No more chips....and I got some pretzels that I might
give away..fresh bags, not opened....And YES>>>>>>>>>

...........................................I LIKE SALT A WHOLE LOT.... YES...I DO...YOU BETCHA!!!...............
