Your call is very important to us…

Whenever I hear that message I often come to the same conclusion. If my call really was important then they would increase their service staff so I could speak to a human being right away. Instead you wait. You wait while your children fight. You wait while someone rings the doorbell. You wait all the way through an episode of some program you’d never watch on TV except for the fact that you are sitting around waiting.

Health Insurance, Sick Credit Cards and Washing Pills

This country is in poor health. I know because I am one of the ones who regularly visits a doctor. I was searching the web for some health information and found a relevant article at Forbes. But search engines sometimes turn up strange results. In the “Health” section at Forbes.com I found another article (from the AP wire) about our unhealthy credit card debt. The increase in debt is just a symptom of our underlying sickness. Too many americans are out-of-work. The so-called statistics about employment tell us nothing because they only reflect people still on unemployment. And people who can’t make a living can’t pay their debts. The latest natural disaster has only made the situation worse. But while the American people continue the downward spiral, the cedit card companies have been converted to “drug-addicts”.

SciFriday is back tonight!

Can’t wait to see what happens on Stargate, its spin-off and Battlestar Galactica. I’m lucky enough to have a DVR so I can wait an hour into the programs and then happily skip commercials. Finally!, a computer attached to my satellite receiver lets me skip commercials fast. I have dreamt about that since the days of my first VCR while trying to stop fast forward at the right instant. It still isn’t totally automatic. It would be better if commercials weren’t recorded at all.

My Messy Office


Taken with my phone

My messy office. One of these days I’ll get it straightened out or just drag it all into the backyard and set it on fire! BTW, that’s just the right side front. The rest is equally full of boxes and junk.
