I had a routine check up appointment with Dr. Mc Ivor yesterday. My heart doctor.
I knew he would be thrilled with my 19 pound weight loss. On his scale, it read 23. Wow!
Blood pressure excellent, too.
What a good boy was I!
I am going to stick with my scale’s readings for the time being. My nature, way of doing things.
Matters even better this morning. I had been stuck at 19 for 10 days. This morning, 20!
Another 20 to go!
Mary Lou Hoover a special lady. Helpful in many ways. She is running for Commissioner. I am supporting her. I told her she was crazy to run. She said she had to. Thought she could make a difference.
That’s Mary Lou.
Mary Lou’s campaign kickoff party began at 5 yesterday at Salute’s. One hundred thirty people plus or minus. Everyone having a good time. The beach, sunshine, good food, good drink, and good company.
Served as an opportunity also for me to visit with people I had not seen in a while.
Later, I was having dinner at Antonia’s at the bar. Mary Lou and husband Charlie showed up. They sat with me. We enjoyed dinner together. Talked politics, of course. It is on her mind.
Where ever we look, we see young children with touch phones and tablets. The kids all proficient in their use.
An unhealthy situation has developed as a result. Their grip is affected. Finger muscle development. Many cannot hold a pencil by the time they reach school age. Their fingers lack fundamental movement skills.
Pediatricians are also concerned with brain activity. Hand strength and mobile skills are involved with brain building. A right brain, left brain thing. Lack of mobile finger skills causes a failure in transition from right brain learning to left brain learning. The pediatricians claim children become more emotional than logical as a result as they get older.
Too much touch screen and touch tablet use can also result in the need for detoxification. The child having become over stimulated.
Trump said yesterday that if he had been at Douglas High School, he would have gone in. Even if he had no gun.
He fantasizes. Attempting to represent himself as a brave person, a hero.
Captain Marvel he is not.
This is the same person who received 5 deferments so he would not have to go to Vietnam. Four while in college. The fifth purportedly for bone heel spurs.
When first asked why he had not served, he said he had a “high draft number.” He described it as “phenomenal.” Later investigation determined it was the 5 deferments.
Man historically has made every attempt to keep women down. Second class citizens. Even after Congress passed the 19th Amendment which gave women the vote. The vote could not be denied on the basis of sex.
The 19th amendment was passed by Congress on June 4, 1919. Rapidly ratified. On August 18, 1920, it was the law of the land.
Some men could not accept women voting. Lawsuits were initiated for all kind of nonsensical reasons to thwart the Amendment.
The matter was put to rest with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Lesser v. Garnett on February 27, 1922. In effect, leave the ladies alone, they have the right to vote!
Interestingly, the ladies did not rush to the polls. Many were uneducated and did not know what to do. Others were stymied by voting restrictions based on identification, location, etc. Similar to the manner in which whites even to this day try to keep blacks from the polls.
