I am falling again. This is the second time in 2 weeks.
I suspect it is the self-quarantine. I have not left the house. Not using the cane while home. Always something to grab on if I think I am going to fall.
Not working out that way as the 2 recent falls evidence.
I am back to wobbling. Walk ok. Then suddenly drifting from one side to the other.
Last night’s fall was not one of my best. I still feel it. On top of the fall 2 weeks ago from which I had not yet totally recovered.
Hurt like hell. Fortunately, no fractures.
How long will I continue to be so lucky?
Anyhow, I am even going to go to bed with the cane from this point forward. It will be with me all the time.
There will be no Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou tonight. I feel tired and beat up. Don’t want to handle preparing for the show and then doing it. So it is an afternoon and night off for me and those who listen to the blog talk radio show.
Trump must be looking for a way to die. Taking a hydroxychloroquine pill every day for 1 1/2 weeks. Trump is obese. No question about it. Of necessity, he must have heart problems. Too old and too fat not to have any.
The FDA says don’t take the pill. The VA says its experience with it is the drug kills people with heart problems. Even FOX’s Neil Cavuto last night was adamant in stressing how wrong it was for Trump to take the pill. Several times he repeated it kills!
A few weeks ago, the news came out that Trump was pushing the production of the drug and its mass sale in New York and New Jersey. Two States buried with coronavirus cases. Trump was pushing hard. I cannot help but wonder what interest he, his family or some friends might have in the sale of the drug.
I put nothing past the man.
I go even a step further. I question whether Trump is even taking the drug. He has to have sufficient smartness not to be that stupid. I suspect he is lying.
The drug is not Socrates’ hemlock. Socrates was forced to drink the hemlock. He was ordered to death. By his own hand via the drink or some other more painful method.
His pill consumption is closer to Jim Jones’ Kool Aide. A more voluntary consumption.
Keep in mind the number of coronavirus deaths in the U.S.
On March 1, less than 100. Today, in excess of 90,000. Ninety thousand in less than 3 months.
Average deaths in U.S. at this time roughly 1,000 a day.
All the result of Trump’s screw ups.
Compiled data clearly indicates that more older men with heart failure than women similarly conditioned are dying from the virus. Based on the results of a new Netherlands study.
It was initially thought more older heart problemed men were dying because of their wayward lives. More drinking and smoking than women.
Italian data reveals more older heart problemed men than women died. Seventy percent more.
The new study suggests the cause if a key enzyme that men have more of than women. The enzyme is angiotensin-converting-enzyme. Referred to as ACE2.
ACE2 makes it easier for the coronavirus to enter the body. The virus latches on to the inhibitors.
Hurricane noises are being heard already. Tropical storm Arthur is skipping up the eastern seaboard far enough out to do no damage.
More hurricanes expected, however.
Recent studies indicate global warming a contributing factor to the increase of wind speeds. Hurricanes were studied for 40 years in arriving at the conclusion.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration conducted the study.
A step back in history.
It was on this day in 1538 that Henry VIII’s second wife was executed. Anne Boleyn.
Anne did everything to entice Henry to get rid of wife number 1 and marry her. She was a sexy pixie and shared her charms freely and enticingly to the King.
Anne failed Henry in one extremely important regard. She bore him a daughter rather than a son.
She was charged with adultery, incest, and conspiracy against the King. The veracity of the charges questionable.
Henry claimed Anne had seduced him by witchcraft.
She was sentenced to death by burning or execution. Henry decided execution by beheading. He did show her mercy however. Rather than have her head severed by an ax, he permitted a sword to be used. Apparently more humane.
In a sense, Anne won. Title to the crown important. It was her daughter Elizabeth who ultimately became Queen Elizabeth I and ruled gloriously for 40 years.
May Johnson and I have something in common. She wrote in her diary she fell on yesterday’s date in 1896. I fell 124 years later on the same day in 2020.
Enjoy your day!
