Netflex documentary--Life Overtakes Me

From the description: " in the grip of trauma, hundreds of refugee children in Sweden withdrawal from life's uncertainties into a coma-like illness called Resignation Syndrome."

The program is just 40 minutes.

I feel like we might experience the same thing here, only in larger numbers.

Seizure alerts.

My daughter-in-law, who I love like my own child, has been having seizures for almost two years. My son finally found a doctor who specializes in seizures and they are making slow progress toward finding the cause. The doctor is 110 miles away.

There is company called Empatica at empatica.com that has developed a watch that can monitor arm movements that indicate a seizure is underway and sents out an alert to designated family or friends. This even includes a pin on the google map to locate the person.

So two days ago the "kids" came over and she demonstrated how I would get an alert. Even though she was sitting two feet away, I knew she was alright, the text alert started my adrenaline and i went into mother mode. I cried out of gratitude and the sense of urgency that she would be alone the next time I get that alert.

There are 3.5 million people in our country that have seizures. A service dog can cost $40,000 and take years of waiting. But the dog can't send a text message with an exact location.

If you or someone you know has seizures please help them investigate this product to see if it could help. It requires a prescription from your doctor.

It's more than measles going around. Possibly 1,000 exposed.

Offutt AFB Nebraska.

I don't know about anyone else, but I thought the first flooded military base would be on a coast. Who would have guessed that climate change would first flood an inland base?

Don't forget Homeland Security Committee hearing today.

Secretary Kirstjen Neilson will be testifying. Starting at 10 Eastern time, 8 Mountain time.

I guess this is breakfast.


I have a preference, ya but.........Undecided.

Thank you for my hearts!!

Netflex- 7 Days Out.

Have you ever thought "What's the big deal?" when the news is presenting a big event? This series gives us a peek inside some of these events and the people who make it happen.

First episode is the Westminster Dog Show, second is a remodeling and reopening of a New York restaurant, the third is the last days of the Cassini spacecraft to Saturn.

I can't wait to find an hour to fill with the next episode. Oh, that just might be tonight.

The Devil We Know

Now on Netflex is this stunning documentary, The Devil We Know.

Here is their website.

Howard Schultz is on The View saying the Medicare for All is free.

Free government healthcare. I took that to mean that no one who would have to pay into Medicare premiums.

I always thought that we would have to pay some premium or extra taxes, but it would still be much less than private insurance.

Am I wrong? How would he get such an idea?

I'm adding this.

He just said the important issues are not abortion or race but financial security.

Now, we know where this guy is coming from, in my opinion.
