Amlodipine – Don’t Take It!

Several weeks ago as part of my blood pressure medication treatment, my General Practitioner placed me on this horrid medication. As of this writing, I’m still attempting to resolve the damned Edema created by this drug. I’ve been off of it for more than two weeks and have had minimal results in reducing the Edema. Why has this drug not been removed from the public??

My point is this, under no circumstances allow any physician to write a prescription for this drug for you. What appears to be bruises, and could be but are more like extremely itchy rashes on my lower legs, have been very difficult to be rid of. I hope this rash/bruise will resolve itself but…..

Air Travel Realities

I recall flights across the country in the seventies where people were allowed to smoke in the cabins, and actual hot and somewhat good food was served to you by friendly attendants. Those attendants are just as friendly these days but don’t plan on your family or significant other meeting you at your gate when deplaning. Who won on September 11th, 2001…

Real Evil: The Pig Customer

If you visit here regularly, you’ll remember The Pig Customer post. Well, I’ve more shit to report on this bastard. Today it was found out that this evil person had unscrewed the bolts in the steel walls and broken into the unit which is between his previous two rental units.

The older couple who have been renting the in-between unit which was broken into had been renting since 2011, six years worth of rent. So, what did the pig take? He stole over four thousand dollars worth of not replaceable gauges and related equipment used in the diagnosis of large truck diesel engines.

The victim has been a diesel mechanic for many years. Also stolen were dozens of family videos, photographs and memories along with a dolly (trolly) that was found among the ruins left behind in the pig’s two units. Busted. The poor wife was so distraught that my manager and I were both crying with her.

This bad situation as described in a previous post has become far worse than any of us employees could have imagined. These weren’t my belongings yet I was enraged at the vile behavior of this evil person. This situation tells people like myself who’ve been around a while just how much society has changed.

Previous to 1960, I believe that the pre-hippy era was the last generation to still have some respect for other people and themselves. They weren’t as self-centered as so many people are today. If it doesn’t concern or benefit them in some way, they want nothing to do with whatever it may be.

I was born in 1960, very much a Baby Boomer baby. In chatting with the victim (husband) he and I agreed that the 1960’s saw a serious degeneration of morality in the United States as I’ve since learned over the years. My parents slapped and leather-belted respect for others into my brain.

Today in our so-called modern world, the Liberalized public indoctrination stations called schools teach children to contact the authorities should they be taught a lesson as I was so many years ago. Oh yeah, I remember hearing my daddy’s belt make a fast exit from his belt loops.

I still see my mother’s face and feel the sting left on my body by her tiny hand. And many years later, I thanked them both for the discipline they gave me. They made me a better man. I was fortunate to have told mother how much I lover her and thank her for so many wonderful things over the years.

She passed away five years ago already yet I will never forget the words of wisdom and the painful sting of tough love on my young teen aged face. What I’m saying is that I simply can’t comprehend a mind that can do such evil to other people and apparently have no sense of right or wrong and absolute zero conscience in doing these things. America, your in big trouble…

Desert Mail

Looking west into Red Rock Canyon from outside of the canyon. I drove by these mailboxes on the way to the station to grab some brew for later and thought the boxes atop the 55 gallon drum might make a fairly interesting photo. As always, that’s up to you!!
