About Me

And I got a performer recumbent this last summer.

Hits home today...

Went in for a doctors appointment today...needed the surgeon that took a melanoma

off of me last year to look at the scar...Now I haven't been anywhere with strict rules

regarding the virus..Yeah I wear a mask in walmart. Thats about the extent of my

experiences. So I enter the clinic and there is a nurse with one of those temperature

guns..She asks me if I phoned

the surgeons nurse? I didn't know I was supposed to.

She points to a sign on the entry door, which I hadn't looked at, with a phone number

to check in prior to entry. As she is explaining this to me, a person is coming through

the door and tells the nurse the number isn't working...So she tells us to go ahead and

go inside the lobby and check in...Clear plexi-glass screens are in front of the personel.

I check in, go up to the 2nd floor and am just getting into a game of solitar, when the

nurse that helped the surgeon on my neck..roughly a year ago, comes and gets me. Takes

me back into the examination room and tells me the doctor is at home with the corona!

She calls up the surgeon at home and uses her cell video cam to show him the scar..

Later I asked her what happens to those clinic personel that test postive and if they get

tested regularly..She said the tests are to hard to get to use them like common sense says

they should...every day. But, If she were to test positive, she would continue to work until

symptoms showed up...And to all that I give a big salute to the healthcare workers of

whatever discipline, for staying on the job...


fwiw..I asked the front door nurse with the temp gun what it was and if it would turn me into a republican...she laughed..

Rock legend Eddy V has past..

Last of the rockers that knew how to play a guitor, knew how to play rock and roll...fuck rap music..

RIP wild guy...You were fantastic..

Eddie Van Halen, the legendary guitarist for the band Van Halen, has died of cancer, his son announced Tuesday. He was 65.

"Every moment I've shared with him on and off stage was a gift," Wolfgang Van Halen wrote in a short statement posted on Twitter. "My heart is broken and I don't think I'll ever fully recover from this loss."


Kansas could do something in November it hasn't done in almost 100 years

And why not? They elected a democrat guvnor!

The last time Kansas sent a Democrat to the US Senate, the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby was all over the news. "Tarzan the Ape Man" was a hit movie. And Franklin Delano Roosevelt won his first term, crushing incumbent Herbert Hoover.

The year, as you history majors out there have probably already figured out, was 1932.

That was 88 years ago. And proving that nothing lasts forever, Republican dominance of Kansas' two Senate seats is in real jeopardy of coming to an end in 33 days' time. And while Republican Rep. Roger Marshall is still favored to beat state Sen. Barbara Bollier (D) on November 3, the fact that the race is even marginally competitive speaks to how much the state has changed in just the last four years under President Donald Trump.

In 2016, President Donald Trump won Kansas by 21 points, a margin very similar to the 22-point win that Mitt Romney ran up in the Sunflower State four years earlier. (The last Democrat to win Kansas at the presidential level was Lyndon Johnson in 1964.) But the state -- led by the increasingly Democratic Kansas City suburbs -- has moved away from Trump's version of tough-talking Republicanism in recent years.
