Too Pooped To Celebrate The Holiday

So, yesterday was our Thanksgiving Holiday. I managed to make my cranberry compote and bake a pumpkin pie but that’s as far as I got.

My husband was kind and said it was ok, we could do the big meal today. I could tell he was bummed though.

Before we got married, I told him I had MS and I was a lot more active then.. he didn’t really believe it because (like a lot of people) he thought I’d be in a wheelchair if I had MS.

I was sorry I couldn’t get our holiday meal together this year but my PPMS got a lot worse in the last 12 months. I’ve even simplified cooking as much as possible. Today, my hubby helped prep some foods and I think that helped him a bit. The turkey’s in the oven, we’re watching football and all the dinner things will be ready in an hour or so.

Unfortunately, I’m so fatigued I’ll get everything heated and ready and then I’ll go to bed. I hate leaving my companion to eat alone but there’s no other choice.

How about you ? Does this happen to you too for whatever reason ? A lot of people work more than one job and have these same issues. Let’s give each other a big hug… And then another piece of pie.

Apple Algorithm Trouble ?

When a company uses an algorithm to decide how much credit you’ll be issued on it’s credit card, and it gives men more $$ than women, then you’ve got a BIG problem.

The Blind Muralist

Artists, could you paint blind? I stopped painting due to double vision but this man has inspired me. I’ll try an art piece with my eyes closed and find out what happens. Maybe this man will inspire you too.

Stop The Hate Before It Is Too Late For All Of Us

I’m going to get serious for just a moment. This came about because I saw an app for people who are Conservatives/Republicans to find a safe place to dine out. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, but then, I also can’t believe it when total strangers gang up and terrorize people they have decided are bad and must be gotten rid of.. Because their political choices are different.

I never thought I’d see a day when people here were being attacked in public, shouted and screamed at until they fled a restaurant, barred from shops and eateries.

Below you’ll find a link to a great radio presentation of the science fiction story by Theodore Sturgeon, “Mr. Costello, Hero”. I’m presenting it as an example of a very frightening thing going on in our society right now, people labeling others as bad just because they have a different opinion. This has happened before… In Germany 1939.

I hope you will listen to it this radio show.

I hope you will still welcome all people into your world with an open heart and mind.

Mr. Costello, Hero
