Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a. the Buddha

April 1, no foolin’

A lot of the blogs will be doing the usual April fool’s thing today.  I thought about it, but to be honest, being home from work today, knocked out of the game by a wicked bronchial infection, I just ain’t up to it.   In addition, this is the 10th anniversary for a highlight of my life that lead to my personal TEOTWAWKI.   I leave that as said, no details need to be brought forward.

I am watching the world, watching the happenings in Albuquerque, noticing a dead silence in Connecticut, noticing a virtual media blackout in the Crimean dispute, and I have to wonder, is it just the fact that its springtime and many bloggers tend to be much busier with outside stuff?   Seeing how most of my news I get by reading Drudge, then going and researching what I read through alternate media/blogs, the silence is quite deafening right now.

Then again, maybe its just the fact that I have a little more time on my hands today and I am not used to that any more.  Well, at least not in such a way as I feel useless.   Hard to get up and do things when you have a hard time breathing without the desire to cough up a lung or two along with some fairly nasty alien waste products.   But y’all don’t need to hear about that.

What can I say, I am bored and forced into sedentary ways today.   My mind is wandering from the cold meds and stuff.  Maybe I should just hit publish, grab another shot of the Nyquil or Svedka and head back to bed.

Yeah, thats a plan.

    Yep, your plan is right on. Shot of Nyquil and a little (or a lot) of accelerant. That’ll fix you right up. Hope it’s just a 24 hour type. Take care of yourself man.

  3. Dio, I have a great home remedy for Bronchial colds. Get a big coffee cup(10 oz.)and put in a about a teaspoon each of real honey and lemon juice(bottled lemon juice will work) add a shot of whiskey (I like the blended whiskeys but a smooth Bourbon will work) Top off the cup with boiling water. I’m not sure it will fix the cold but it does make being sick a bit more fun!

    If you have fresh Rosemary herbs or dried, boil them up them on the stove and then drape a towel over your head and breathe in the wet, moist air. This helps me a lot with any cough. You could also add some pepermint and rosemary Essential oil to the tea kettle on your wood stove.

    • My fix was cherry nyquil, half glass of svedka 80 proof and a shot of coffee ( the black russian with a cherry on top). Voo saw the vodka come out and decided grandpaw was gonna be more fun to be around so I was able to actually get some rest.
      Still not 100% but much better, had to dip into the antibiotics but hey, they have a shelf life so better to rotate ’em out at times like this
