BACK ON MY FEET

I returned to work this morning, a little shaky, but able to work a full day. My stomach took a beating, between the steroids for the asthma, and the antibiotics for the bronchitis. I'm gobbling down antiacids, and it seems to help.

The news about the election just keeps getting better and better. Despite the overwhelming proponderance of Kerry/Edwards signs in the West Park/Lakewood neighborhoods, the polls indicate that Bush is considerably up, and seems likely to win. Boy, won't that fry the neighbors!

Actually, since I'm outnumbered in my house by the Kerry supporters, I have a Kerry/Edwards sign on my lawn. The funny thing is, if you counted registered voters, the split would be 50-50. I've several times gotten voter registration forms, but the kids haven't sent them in. Knuckleheads!

I can't take the privilege of voting lightly. I grew up with friends from countries where the franchise was either restricted, or the selection was limited to the official party in power. I have missed only one election (a local one) in my life, when the weather was very bad, I had a young child and no sitter, and I was 8 months pregnant.

I have been steadfast in refusing to answer pollsters' questions. I don't think their desire to know my political opinions outweighs my desire to keep my business to myself. In short, it's "none'ya" business, as the kids say.

Looking at asthma treatment info online today while my son coughs I came across this post. Does anyone know a good asthma treatment site to help?

Thanks

Really great blog! I noticed a mention about arthritis remedy . I thought you might be interested to hear that both my parents and several of their friends have had problems with arthritis and we have been very lucky to have come across Bioflow. They are sold at arthritis remedy and they have been worth every penny. They don't seem to work for everyone but they have helped reduce the pain in my parents arthritis so that they almost don't notice it any longer. They'd still be taking painkillers if it wasn't for wearing a Bioflow on their wrist
