For anyone grossed out by the details of my illness - believe me - I'm with you. I just want all to be reassured that it's not the Black Death. One of the hardest parts of getting sick was the stress of worrying about my husband and dog. Fortunately we are all well. I wish you all great health and happiness.
We'll have lots to talk about when we meet in person next year-I love owls and of course the owl is Athena's bird!
"Toxic Parents" has really become a canonical book and I am so glad it was helpful for you and your husband. I think of all her books she was proudest of that one.
Red-tailed hawk, female. We have a lot of them in the neighborhood, but I have never seen one so huge. That is what threw me on the identity. Just majestic. My Stokes Field Guide indicates they can get to 26 inches, little over 2 feet. She was right there at or above that max, and very robust and regal.

Here are three minutes and fifty four seconds that will make your day better. Promise.

Zinc supplementation in the elderly, the high-risk group of coronavirus Infections, lowers illness markedly. Modern medicine needs to emphasize zinc therapy, especially during epidemics.
Between 15-30 milligrams of zinc in dietary supplements can be safely consumed by adults. Zinc oxide is poorly absorbed. Other forms (acetate, gluconate, acetate, picolinate) are preferred.
Thread on PANIC
I have a MASSIVE "platform" on social media. Yeah. Three or four folks hang on every syllable I type. Well, OK, maybe 2 or 3, and maybe hardly ANY syllables, but nevertheless...
Hey, maybe this thread will someday be read by my granddaughter, when she learns to read of course.
For what little it's worth...
@SpiceOfOurLife We will never know the total number of people who have or have had this virus. At this point, I want to know what drug trials have worked and when the successful ones can be administered to the ones who are hospitalized. Perhaps if the science community hadn't spent the past 10 years discovering 20 genders and discussing how racist science is, the best and brightest would have cooked up a cure weeks ago.
.... went into a quiet fugue state that hour of waiting, but I became aware the guy behind me with the gun had no intention to harm me. I could in those weird "wide open" moments intuit the guy with the gun had no appetite to be my ender, he had other stuff and no pleasure in what was happening. So sorry, this seems somehow inclined to share, yet it is human messy.
This actually resulted in a surreal spiritual experience. I can remember the damp sand under my knees, there were interesting tree droppings that drove into my knees, and the posture of my body kneeling on the beach. Out of NOWHERE a thought came... "Straighten up, gird your loins". I sat straighter and the teenager or young 20-something holding (guarding) me with his gun sighed deeply and muttered in Spanish. In very deep prayer,
2/ We were ordered at gunpoint to exit the motarized big canoe, and made to kneel in the sand in a circle. Our head professor and another male of the group were taken down a path out of sight. We waited like that for them for over an hour with guns "loosely" pointed at the back of our heads. The person next to me evacuated their bowels and bladder. The guys came back, the crew told us to go back upriver, we were not touched. It was traumatizing.
Cannot relate to any of it. Am so glad to be an American, and to be in Georgia. And to be conservative.
At age 20 in 1988, while down in Ecuador on a scientific study, my crew and I were taking a day off and went "playing" in a small boat down an upper tributary of the Amazonas. We landed on a particular village beach, and were descended on by a crew of what I call, right or wrong, companeros. They had big guns and lots of ammo. ...
2. Don't forget that CNN is owned by none other than A T & T, who also do a lot of business with the Chinese regime and (among other things) was one of the chief backers used by Xi to get Huawei into the US.
A T & T and Concast have the same majority shareholders, who are ALSO lapdogs to Xi & his goons.
And wait until you learn about their relationship with the Obama administration.
1. More evidence of NBC's grovelling to the Chinese regime.
Owner of NBC? COMCAST. Sorry, Concast.
I have a bombshell new article coming (Saul has it now) that exposes Concast's (and it's shareholders) sedition with Xi and his crime gang, aka Chinese Communist Party.
When it's published, please consider getting it to everyone you know.
@Joycevor inspiring he was! If 90% of the population is infected and no one died, and no one is severely ill then:
1. All the herd have been immunized.
2. Treatment works.
3. Coronavirus is a sissy.
a little funny to brighten your day...
Solving those mysteries is an interesting process. At times, it makes thing clear. So many of those conflicts/issues from Europe were brought here
Oh, I see all the really smart people are on Facebook to tell us how we can't go back to work. They know *everything*. They have all the data, all the models, and they know what's going to happen.
Fucking bullshit. It was getting enjoyable until Orange Man Bad is talking about getting everything back to normal.
