MY STAY AT THE SENTARA ROCKINGHAM MEMORIAL HOSPITAL

CONTINUED FROM YESTERDAY....


I ate the remainder of my meal from the salad bar and went back upstairs and 

set on one of the huge couches that the hospital provides for the patients and/or 

their families to sit. There is probably at least 4 sets of couches after you enter 

the front entrance and to the left. The couches are in a U-shaped form, the open 

end pointing to the near southeast. After the information/greeter want off duty,

I lay down on the couch that was on the left if you're facing the U at the opening. 

I covered myself with a coat I believe and maybe a backpack for a pillow and

went to sleep. It wasn't too long until two angels appeared....

WORLD

*In Syria, an agreement has been announced between the opposing sides in this

civil war. Turkey who supports the rebels and Russia and Iran who support the

Assad regime have agreed to meet in Kazakhstan's capital, Astana, to discuss a 

possible solution to this almost 6 year war.

HEALTH 

*I told you yesterday that I was overweight but not obese. My plan for loosing

weight is simple. I'm not going to eat as much. And I found a jump rope that 

I purchased at Dicks Sporting Goods and forgot about it. I ain't jumped for a 

while. I hope I can make a least a 1 inch jump with all this weight I'm carrying.

*I almost forgot to take my pills yesterday and finally remembered to take them 

at about 1:00 PM when I normally take them at 8:00 AM. It's a little past 8:00 AM

now (8:04 AM 12/28/2016 EDT) so I'll take them right now. I usually take 3 pills 

at a time and chase them with V-8 vegetable juice.

*A recent survey found that 4 out of 10 homeless people suffer with insomnia.

I've been homeless both in homeless shelters, in my car and in other ways.

I can sleep in my car or other ways, but I could never sleep well in a homeless 

shelter. Why? Did you ever try to sleep on individual mats with 50 other people

in the large room of a church, 1/2 of them still drunk from a day of drinking

and the other 1/2 half crazy throwing plates, glasses and fighting?


AMAZING FACTS

From http://mentalfloss.com.

1,   "Jay" used to be slang for "foolish person." So when a pedestrian ignored 

street signs, he was referred to as a "jaywalker."

2.   Duncan Hines was a real person. He was a popular restaurant critic who 

also wrote a book of hotel recommendations.

3.    Alaska is the only state that can be typed on one row of keys. (Go ahead 

and try typing the other 49 states. We'll wait.).


 QUOTE (S) FOR THIS POST

"It looks like to me that as much money that was spent on the election that some

of that money could have been used to feed those that are hungry in the world."

MY OPINION

I am concerned that some of my quotes are not quotes but opinions.

So I looked on the internet for the definition of quote and the definition of an 

opinion.

A quote is taken from a text or speech and restated. I don't do this, I make up my

own original quotes. That's why I take my quotes through Google search to 

make sure they are original.

An opinion is my views about something that is not necessarily based on the 

truth.

If you look at my last quote above is it a quote or my opinion?

It ain't a quote because it was not taken from a speech or text, but from my brain.

And it's only about half of an opinion because based on the definition above 

it is based partially on fact and partially on my opinion.

So, why did I type any of this because I'm now more confused than ever.


POLITICS

*The result of a study found that $2.17 billion was spent on the 2016 election.

This includes all candidates:

Trump -      $409 million, spending $66.1 million of his own money.

Clinton -     $759 million.

Sanders -    $232 million.

Cruz  -         $161 million. 

The 4 figures above don't add up to $2.17 billion. I'm assuming that the 

remainder was spent by Bush, Huckebee, Christy, 3rd party candidates and

others.

*The Obama administration is preparing to announce that Russia will be 

punished for their cyber-attacks into the American presidential election 

process. They go on to say that some of the punishment will be covert (secret).

*The unions are reducing their budgets because of Trump's win. Organized

labor has always received support from the Democrats and have encouraged 

their members to vote democratic. Now with Republicans in control of the

congress, presidency and soon to be the Supreme Court, the right-to-work law

will be implemented into states that are now almost fully unionized.

*Secretary of State John Kerry said that US's decision to abstained in the UN 

Security Council's vote on the Israel's right to hold disputed land was based on 

this country's values. Kerry said a two-state solution (Israel and Palestine) is 

the only option.

While I'm waiting for the dark to turn to light at about 7:30 AM, I'm going to have

an Orleans sardine sandwich. It's (6:59 AM 12/28/2016 EDT) right now, so I don't 

have long to wait.

Went outside (7:54 AM 12/28/2016 EDT) to take a bag of trash to the container 

and check the weather. The temperature is 31°, the humidity is 69% and wind

is blowing in from the west at about 5 mph. Using the online calculators at:

http://www.dpcalc.org and http://www.onlineconversion.com., I get a wind chill

of 25.9° and a dew point of 22%.
