Wednesday again. Screw off Wednesday for me. Starts my three day weekend.
I do have a bit of work this evening for about an hour, however. Around six. Sloan will stop in. Miscellaneous things to deal with. Will go out when she leaves.
Spent parts of yesterday fine tuning last night’s podcast. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou. Did the show at 9. Trump and Hillary took up the first half. I could not avoid political talk. Especially after Trump’s comment re the Second Amendment and Hillary.
I was watching live on TV. My immediate reaction was that Trump was espousing doing away with Hillary. My vision was Klu Klux Klanners in the night, guns drawn, riding to attack her.
An early dinner at Roostica. Holly Ann took care of me.
Discovered Holly Ann has had some interesting years. She lived two in Sicily. Said it was outstanding!
Country living. Drank a lot of wine, ate a lot of food, and just enjoyed.
Key West is located in Monroe Country. Monroe County announced its first Zika case. A woman in Marathon. Marathon is a 1.75 hour drive north from Key West.
The report indicated she did not acquire the disease here. She was infected while traveling outside the U.S.
I forgot about the Big Latch On. This past weekend. Women nationwide breast fed their children at the same time. The purpose to encourage breast feeding.
The event was held in Islamorada and Key West. Only 9 mothers and their infants participated. I thought their would be more.
Nationwide, 17,223 mothers breast fed. A record breaking number.
The Big Latch On leads easily into William Hackley’s life this date in 1855. His new born still suffering from a lack of milk. A Spanish woman was to have stepped in to breast feed tree times a day. No mention of her today.
What is mentioned is that Hackley bought a canister of solidified milk. $4.50.
Sounds like a forerunner of some sort of formula. Formula 1855.
The Department of Defense’s budget for fiscal year 2016 is $585.3 billion. Big bucks!
With all the dramatic tax cuts Trump is advocating, I wonder where the money would come from to meet such a Defense budget and all other budgets. Lower taxes require cuts in all budgets.
Enjoy your day!
