"It looks like salt would preserve you, not hurt or kill you. But maybe you have to

be dead first like other animals that are slaughtered."

HEALTH

*Maybe you all are getting tired of reading about my swollen feet, but I ain't, 

and I'm the one doing the typing so, of course, you don't have a vote.

I still have some swelling occasionally, but that's my fault for eating too much

salt. And another thing, salt isn't the number 1 killer of people, sugar is. And I 

eat too much sugar to. So, what am I to do? Well, let's look at some figures:

1.  Sugar causes 17,000,000 deaths a year worldwide.

2.  Salt causes 2,300,000 deaths a year worldwide.

3.  Cigarettes cause 5,000,000 deaths a year worldwide. 

My conclusion: If I continue to eat salt (2.3 million deaths), continue to smoke

(5 million deaths) and cut my sugar in take in half (8.5 million deaths) the result

would be a total 15.8 million deaths. So I'm still 1.2 million under the total deaths

for sugar and I should look forward to a long and healthy life.


*Medical marijuana is now legal in all 50 states. The provision was included in

bill H. R. 83 that is a temporary budget spending bill that kept the government

from shutting down.

My eye doctor that I told you about said medical marijuana is not known at this 

time to be beneficial for glaucoma. But there are other medical uses evidently

or congress wouldn't have passed the bill that legalizes it. I looked up medical 

marijuana on the internet and could find no related information at the federal

level. However, I found information at the state level that indicated that you're 

eligible for medical marijuana if you have a life ending illness, which is just 

a 3 word summary of the many illnesses mentioned, or are in severe and 

constant pain. I was hoping that I would be eligible for medical marijuana and 

that it would be in a capsule. I could slip the two ends apart and use the 

resulting tobacco-like substance to roll a marijuana cigarette with one of my 

cigarette tubes in my Top cigarette rolling machine and then smoke it.

I do have a life ending illness, though. It's called old age. I'm wondering if 

they'll prescribed medical marijuana for that?

POLITICS


*The President-elect has yet to fill a few cabinet positions.

Veterans Administration. Those under consideration are:

1.  Luis Quinonez who owns a health care company with possible ties to the VA.

2.  Toby Cosgrove who is the CEO of the Cleveland Clinic. I've had some rather

complicated surgerys at the Cleveland. The are No. 1 in heart care and and 

have expanded in all directions under Cosgrove's leadership. He is a former 

officer in the military and because of whats been said, I believe he would be 

the best choice to lead the VA into the future. And just a note. I wrote a letter to

him once asking him to praise one of his physical therapists at the Wooster 

Cleveland Clinic. He did that, also sending to me a letter thanking me for

appreciating one of his employees.

3. Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown who I don't know much about.

4. Florida Rep. Jeff Miller and also unknown to me. 

5. Army veteran and former CEO of Concerned Veterans for America, Pete 

Hegseth.

There has been concern that Trump has not chosen an Hispanic. He could pick

Luis Quinonez after he is properly vetted.


*Trump has not chosen anyone for the Secretary of Agriculture and at this time

there are no names mentioned.

Today is the shortest day of the year and it's about time. I didn't think I'd live

long enough to see it. This ought to be the national "short joke" day of the year.

Just went outside (8:04 AM 12/21/2016 EDT) to check the weather. The 

temperature is 26°, the humidity is 71%, the wind is blowing in from the south

at a slow 3 mph and the sun is peeking just above the eastern horizon. Using the 

online calculators at http://www.dpcalc.org and http://www.onlineconversion.

com., I get a wind chill of 22.53° and a dew point of 18%.

I went outside (8:35 AM 12/21/2016 EDT) to take out a bag of trash to place in the

container and an outgoing letter to the mailbox. The ground and graveled drive-

are still covered with ice and I have to be very careful about not falling. I saw/

heard on the news the other night that 1/3 of the insurance claims at this time of 

year are for falls.

I making my usual Orleans sardine sandwich of the morning and you know from

under HEALTH from above that sardines contain plenty of salt.
