Remember me?

Yeah it's been a while since I've been here. It's been a grueling two weeks for me. Work and home. Work and home. Odd shifts. Truthfully I just didn't have the energy to write anything or really to do anything. Today I am finally off. I haven't done much though there is much to do. I have been eating a lot though. Basically I have used the day to decompress. I also have the feeling that I won't finish this tonight. I have made two other attempts to write over the last two weeks but my heart wasn't in it. I don't want to give the impression that I am in a bad place. I'm fine. I'm just tired mentally and physically.

A friend of mine emailed me a story he found on the web. It seems that a policy officer stopped a man for speeding. Looking in the car he noticed a leafy substance on the floor of the car. Long story short he was arrested. The guy arrested was also suspected in trafficking crack cocaine. A further search of the guy revealed that he had 28 grams of the stuff up his butt. Now there's an enviable job. Anyway this was the resulting  headline.
Spartanburg Police: Crack Found In Man's Buttocks.

I have a question concerning two possibly four words. Is it a lot or alot? Is it anyway or any way? Or is it both ways?

On today's (Monday) local news I heard what possibly could be something disturbing. Traces of radiation from Japan have reached Massachusetts. According to local officials it's just trace. Still it does make you wonder. Japan is on the other side of the world from me and yet it has been detected here. Now I'm not in a panic mode nor is anybody else but it does make you wonder. Where I live I am between two nuclear power plants. One in Plymouth Ma. and one in Seabrook New Hampshire. I don't think we have any major fault lines around here though I'm sure there are some. It does make you think. Japan is a highly advanced technological power and the third largest economy in the world and yet they went ahead and built power plants on literally shaky ground. I am sure they will eventually solve the problem but it does make you think.

I finished the the two loaves of Italian bread that I bought in the North End of Boston a couple of weeks ago. Boy they were fabulous. Also on that St. Patrick's I bought a chocolate mousse cannoli. I know that sounds a bit strange, buying a cannoli on St. Patrick's Day but when you go to Quincy Market/Fanieul Hall the very Italian North End is a 10 minute walk. Besides, if you're in Boston you have to go there. It's where Paul Revere left on his ride. It's the very start of this country. I get goosebumps every time I go there. Besides the multitude of restaurants there are the pastry shops. I had to have a cannoli. It was wonderful. It took me two tries to eat it all as it was a big cannoli about 6" long. OK. Quiet down. I can hear you all snickering out there.

Well I guess that's enough for no It's Tuesday morning and I'm off to work. See you about 5 or 6 tonight.

I'm outta here.


  1. Good Morning little bro. I am glad to see that you are among the living. After a 6 inch cannoli one might wonder. :-)
    The radiation thing is very scary. There are two nuclear plants not far from me too and we are on the New Madrid fault line. So I guess our lives are in God's hands and we have to take one day at a time.
    Stay safe and don't let the little old ladies getcha down.

  2. Well hello. Good to hear your just a bit tired. Know the feeling. Haven't been on myself much that last few days.
    That radiation does worry you some, no matter what they say. I don't think we have any in WI. but Beth's are not that far away from us.

  3. The news of how this is all taking place and spreading is very scary, Now atoms are spilting and making a substance I cant even spell that is dealy. Do we believe we are safe. Noooooo.
    I think we should rely on fossil fuels. Maybe some set backs but our earth our home needs to be taken care of us and in turn we can get what we need.

  4. Blessings.....
    I know how the grind can be. You know you don't always have to do a long entry. It could be..."I am here, busy like a bee, will get back to yah soon." hehe, good enough eh? Anywho it terms of the four letter words as far as I know its any way and a lot although people tend to clump them together.

    Crack in butt....don't we all have crack in butt? ok, ok, bad joke but...haha, there i go again. The things people will do for money is just crazy and the craziest of all is that they think its the easy way! go figure.

    Have a great day off, rest, rest and rest....

  5. Glad to hear you are enjoying your well overdue time off Paul. Gosh I used to have days just like that ...6inch Cannoli and choc to mm sounds tasty I think, Sure do like the sound of that market place,bet it's quite overwhelming .Portabello Road in the north of London was always one of my favourite places to wander round, back in the early eighties. Hope work is kind to you this week , all the best Sheila.

  6. It's "a lot". Two separate words.

    The radiation thing scares the heck out of me. I knew that would happen right from the git-go. I would have said so but I knew all the nay sayers would pile on top off me like I was a pillow r something. I would Far rather have been wrong but I wasn't. Now we're in for it.
