332nd post

Note: Bill remains in the hospital and may go through another test or to. Both

Bill and Carolyn are still experiencing a lot of pain from their car accident, but 

I'm sure they'll get through it.

Update: (5:07 PM 1/12/2017 EDT). I just got back from picking up Bill from the 

hospital and bringing him back to the house.

STORIES OF MY LIFE AND TOLD IN ONE DAY....

"Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink." Not true. 

My grandparents Cline drank from a cistern for a while but then grandfather 

constructed a pump at the creek (Naked Creek) and was able to pump water 

from a spring that partially feed the creek uphill to their house. 

My grandmother Caricofe and her kids, unless I'm mistaken, drank from a 

cistern all their lives. 

Cisterns where built about 12,000 years ago in the Middle East. Mostly desert

and little rainfall they had to have a way of storing water for farming. 

Cisterns are built with an underground tank and rain runoff from the house 

and maybe other buildings is channeled through tile pipe to the tank.

My grandparents or their kids didn't die because of drinking bad water. They

became immune to bad water because they drank it so often. The could have 

probably drank from a mud puddle, streams or rivers without suffering any ill 

effects.

We have a well and that's what I drink. Well water. I had it tested once and it 

contained too many nitrates. But I don't care. I will not spend my good hard 

earned money on buying water as other Americans do. 

They spend a whopping $13 billion a year for water that's probably has more 

contaminants than the well water I drink.

Water is the 2nd largest beverage purchase behind soft drinks. 

I will not buy store bought water unless I'm in the Sahara desert, thirsty, 

seriously dehydrated and I see a Tuareg (Sahara desert dweller) passing 

through on a Camel selling water.

*I've commented on the EpiPen in an earlier story. Now CVS pharmacy has said 

that will sell a generic version of the EpiPen for a two-pack for $109.99 in 

comparison to Mylan's version for $300.00.

Mylan once charged $600 for their EpiPen to consumers, but because of public 

outcries and attacks from President-elect Donald Trump, Mylan reduce their cost 

to consumers from $600 to $300.

POLITICS

*Florida state senator Marco Rubio said yesterday that "I'm prepared to do what's 

right" in either voting yes or no for Rex Tillderson as Trump's secretary of state.

I watched or listened to Rubio's questioning of Tillerson at the Senate Foreign 

Relations Committee and to his interview with reporters afterwards. During the

hearing Rubio grilled Tillerson like a police detective would a murder suspect.

I believe that Rubio, just like John Kasich of Ohio, are seeking payback for their

failure to secure the Republican nomination for president for themselves.

*Chuck Schumer will not back Rex Tillerson for attorney general.

*Trump promises major border import taxes on companies moving their plants

to Mexico.

*Rand Paul says that Republicans have a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare

(Affordable Care Act).

*Mexican president again says he will not pay for border wall.

*Trump's nominee for Secretary of Defense, retired General James "Mad Dog" 

Mattis in his conformation hearing said that world order is under its "biggest 

attack since WW II and called for increasing and expanding U.S. military

capabilities.

Weather for Smithville, Ohio

Today       RAIN                            59° 24°

Fri            PARTLY_CLOUDY   29° 20°

Sat            CLOUDY                    33° 24°

Just went outside (7:57 AM 1/12/2017 EDT) to grab the weather gauge and bring 

it into the house. The temperature is 56°, the humidity is 80%, it's raining "cats 

and dogs" and the wind is blowing, but I don't know which way because the flag

is wrapped around the corner border pole. Just looking at the angle of the rain

falling, I estimate the wind speed at about 10 mph.

I'm going to make my 2nd pot of coffee and an Orleans sardine sandwich.

I'm looking at the weather gauge that I brought inside the house 

(8:56 AM 1/12/2017 EDT). The inside temperature is 71° and the humidity is 78%.

There is not much difference in the humidity % outside or inside the house so

I'm thinking that the air is becoming more saturated with water.

We have two weather gauges telling temperature and humidity in the house. 

One is on the middle floor and one on the top floor. As I went up to the top floor

to poop, (I'm still utterally astounded that after 74 years I've found out that I  can 

wipe my butt much better with my left arm and hand, me being right-handed).

I read the middle gauge humidity level at 35% and the top floor gauge at 41%.

So why the differences in the humidity %'s from the bottom floor, (where I'm at)

at 78% and the middle and top floors? For right now I can't figure it out.

I'm going to take Carolyn to see Dr. Kwok for her pain that remains from the 

automobile accident. He does not want any of his patients to be in pain, so

Carolyn will receive from one of the two Jessica's (both are nurses) 2 to 4 shots 

just above her buttocks. Bill is not in pain at the hospital because they are given

to him my favorite pain killer. Morphine.
