191st post

"Telephone companies offered party lines since the late 1800s, .... although

subscribers in all but the most rural areas may have had the option to

upgrade to private line service at an additional monthly charge. The service

was common in sparsely-populated areas where remote properties are

spread across large distances, such as Australia (where these were

operated by the Government Post Master General department). In rural

areas in the early 20th century, additional subscribers and telephones,

often numbered in several dozen, were frequently connected to the single

loop available. Party lines provided no privacy in communication. They

were frequently used as a source of entertainment and gossip, as well as

a means of quickly alerting entire neighbourhoods of emergencies such

as fires,.... becoming a cultural fixture of rural areas for many decades...."



"Donald Trump owns a national lead over Hillary Clinton for the first time

since July, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports poll.

The latest results:

Trump: 40 percent;

Clinton: 39 percent;

Gary Johnson: 7 percent;

Jill Stein: 3 percent.

Hillary Clinton


"From Medicare to medical costs, more voters trust Democratic presidential

candidate Hillary Clinton to do a better job on healthcare issues facing

the nation, according to a poll out Thursday. But they're not holding out

hope for big improvements.

The survey from the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation also found that

the future of Medicare and overall access and affordability are the top health

care issues for voters. Neither of those is getting much attention in a

campaign that has been dominated by questions of character and


On the basic pocketbook question, the poll found that 36 percent of voters

feared their own access to affordable care would get worse if Republican

Donald Trump is elected, versus 24 percent who worried their own situations

would worsen under Clinton. Just over half said a Clinton presidency would

not make much difference to their own personal access, while 37 percent

felt the same way about Trump."

Donald Trump


"The Republican nominee's long-awaited speech followed a meeting in

Mexico City with President Peña Nieto, after which Trump said that he

was interested in "improving" NAFTA and that the U.S. had a "right … to

build a physical barrier or wall on any of its borders."

His remarks also came after more than a year of fiery rhetoric slamming

Hispanics and illegal immigrants, vowing to build a wall on the U.S.

border — and having Mexico pay for it — and promising to create a

"deportation force" to remove more than 11 million aliens from the

United States.

In recent weeks, however, Trump has been accused of softening his

position — though the nominee last week ruled out legalization and

amnesty and reiterated his pledge to build the wall.

The core objective of Trump’s immigration policy was that the United

States has the "right as a sovereign nation to choose immigrants that we

think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish and love us.

"We also have to be honest about the fact that not everyone who seeks

to join our country will be able to successfully assimilate," Trump told

supporters at the Phoenix Convention Center in Arizona. "Sometimes it

is not going to work out.

"If we're going to make our immigration system work, then we have to be

prepared to talk honestly and without fear about these important and very

sensitive issues...."



Besides Mother and I drinking a cup of black coffee and sharing a half of a

banana, everything I ate for breakfast was totally different. I had containers

in which I put canned fruit cocktail, Alaskan wild caught salmon, green leaf

spinach, sliced beets, black beans, navy beans, black-eyed peas, sliced

peaches, etc. and just eat maybe a spoonful or so of each. When a container

was empty I would wash and refill it with another delightful treat. Sounds

good, don't it?

I finally went to Dr. Kwok today for what I thought was the Chiggers. What

ever those bite looking things are where a puzzle to him, too, so he just

called it Allergic Dermatitis. He gave me clobetasol 0.05% to apply to the

affected area 2 times a day for 30 days, prednisone (I don't like this drug,

it makes me feel "nervous as a whore in church") 10 mg tablet and taken

like a Zpack starting with 4 tablets for two days, 3 tablets for two days,

2 tablets for two days, 1 tablet for two days and then stop.

He also gave to me hydroxyzine HCI 50 mg tablet, 1 tablet three times a

day for 30 days for itching and Dr Kwok said not to drive when taking it.
