Good morning:-) I am checking out for a day or two. Nothing personal to DS, but real life kicked my kneecaps pretty badly, and my spoon drawer is *empty*, so I'm taking a couple days to just isolate, read books I already knwo by heart b/c it's easy and soothing, and maybe if I get reallllly radical, watch TV. I have the health rights rally today---holding a sign in a wind is going to be fun (not)---but I caught Hubby's cold and between that, and some other crap? Yeah, bedtime for the puma. Hot fluids, bed rest, and Monday I up-and-at'em.
Or pretend I'm up and at 'em. Whichever.
Who is Roberto? It's the name of m ybaseball bat. For Roberto Clemente, a player who died when I was a tiny tot, but was one of my dad's fave players, so .... Do you name inanimate objects? Cars, etc.? The bat's about it for me, but our neighbor calls his Cooper Mini "Zelda". (Took me weeks to realize he meant the car and not a girlfriend. Ew.)
So check *this* out....
These are actual places on our planet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFdBNJsW46Y I vote massive (mental) road trip.
A few locations: What is that huge crystal mine in Mexico? Selenite crystals!

The Bolivia site that looks like a mirror? Is a salt flat. Huge lithium salt reserves there, very valuable, and the layer of salt can, at the right angle, act as if it's a reflective surface in the right spots. (Most of it just looks like a big white flat, btw, anad is noted for its breeding flamingoes. Bright pink birds on white. Freaky, but true.)
There's a lake in Senegal that looks like Pepto-Bismol pink. It's highly saline, and the algae give it the pink color, which is most vivid in dry seasons. (Diluted, obviously, the water is less "pink".)
This video is a nice travelogue of just odd places: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZbWtUe5B3Q It's narrated, no need for your resident nerrd;-)
OK, off to rest up. Blessings, all.:-)
Feeling pretty bad lately. I'm back on antidepressants and I'm in bed now most of the day. I may end up moving the tv to the bedroom since I don't have the strength to sit in the living room much. I wish I could mentally snap myself outta this, like mind over matter but I've been trying to snap outta this for years. It scares me because I don't want to end up in a nursing home. This is such a...
I watched a documentary about vitamins and suppliments on The Fifth Estate this weekend and found it both interesting and disturbing I thought I'd share it for anyone who's using these products.... People have to draw their own conclusions however I found it to be an eye opener As an example what has been stated is a huge number of people take Vitamin C.... 1000mg is equivalent to eating 7 and...
