On March 1st I went to my doctor to have a biopsy done on a place on top of my head. I also had him remove a large thing on top of my shoulder. I will get the report on the biopsy in 4 or 5 days. The doctor said he is 95% sure it will come back as cancer.
The doctor had symptoms of a cold. I asked if had a cold. He said no. Today I have a cold. I have a runny nose, scratchy throat, and a fever now.
You will typically begin to notice symptoms, such as a runny or stuffed-up nose, coughing or a scratchy throat about two or three days after you become infected with the virus that causes the common cold. Other symptoms of the common coldcan include: sneezing, a fever, headaches, watery eyes and fatigue.
Look to see much more of this in the coming years. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go
“The lasting image from President Donald Trump’s first speech to Congress was that of widow Carryn Owens, crying as Trump honored her late husband, Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, with an extended standing ovation.
Trump cast as a success the U.S. military raid of an al-Qaida affiliate complex in Yemen, despite Owens’ death.
“Ryan died as he lived, a warrior and a hero, battling against terrorism and securing our nation,” Trump said on Feb. 28. “I just spoke to our great General Mattis just now who reconfirmed that, and I quote, ‘Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemy.’ Ryan’s legacy is etched into eternity.”
The raid, which took place in central Yemen on Jan. 29, was Trump’s first counterterrorism operation after taking office. Administration and Defense Department officials have praised the operation for gathering intelligence from documents and electronic devices in the house, and for killing at least a dozen combatants including Abdulrauf al Dhahab, a leader of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.
But the event and its aftermath have been more controversial than Trump’s description let on.
Some lawmakers, pundits and news reports have criticized the raid — saidto be an intelligence-gathering operation — because it turned into a lengthy firefight that killed Owens and potentially dozens of civilians, wounded three American soldiers, and destroyed a $70 million helicopter. They have also questioned the quality of the intelligence gathered.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., called the operation “a failure” because the terrorists were allegedly tipped off in advance.”*
Back in the early 70s, God I am old, I worked for a security company as a patrol officer. I forget the name of the bar but it was in Olathe (KS) and near the Olathe Naval Air Station. I had to go into the bar at about 2 AM and clear everyone out. The bar always had a lot of people from the military base. I did not look forward to closing a bar filled with marines but it was my job. I can remember a few young USMC men saying they were not going to leave. I was in my 30s. I think any one of those 18 year old marines could have kicked my ass. I just told them it was my job and they were done drinking for the night. If they got up from their chair I just turned the chair over and put it on their table. I made it without getting into a fight. But I was glad when I moved to a different job.
I wonder if that is the bar where the Indian man was killed the other day. Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, was shot at a bar in Olathe. It was a hate crime.
I am using the Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview builds. I have Build 15031 working. The release #15042, released 2/224/2017, attempted to install and would hang when it got to 72%. I gave it a try a couple of times. Would not install for me. Thank God Windows was smart enough to restore my previous version of 15031.
A policial hate site on YouTube called “Trump Truth Watch” made a very sick YouTube video about President Trump and his daughter Ivanka. You all know I am NOT a President Trump supporter but that video caused me to create and post this video.
I made this ranting and raving video a couple of days ago.
Today I went to YouTube and the About tab and I found this:

Just a regular 16-year-old from Birmingham trying to make a change!
Fort Worth is conducting a pilot program to increase opportunities for residents to safely and conveniently dispose of unused, unwanted and expired drugs. In addition to the twice-a-year Drug Take Back Days, the City of Fort Worth Solid Waste Services Division is currently distributing a total of 1,000 drug take back envelopes.
One postage paid envelope will be provided per household upon request while supplies last. Residents can call 817-392-1234 or email 1234@FortWorthTexas.Govto request an envelope, which will be mailed to them.
To use the envelope, simply place unwanted over-the-counter and/or prescription drugs in the envelope and drop the envelope in a USPS mailbox. Drugs will then be mailed to Sharps Compliance, where they will be safely and properly destroyed through incineration.
The medication mail-back envelopes are 8 by 11 inches and are only designed for small quantities of medications. To save space, medications may be removed from their containers and placed directly in a zippered plastic bag then into the envelope. For the destruction of larger quantities of medication, residents should consider participating in a semiannual Drug Take Back Day or visit one of the drug take back kiosks currently in the area.
The next Drug Take Back Day is Saturday, April 29 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at seven local Walgreen locations.
Andrew Sullivan Questions Trump’s Mental Stability: He Refuses to ‘Recognize Reality’
Andrew Sullivan appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources this morning to discuss his recent piece on President Trump‘s lies and mental stability. Here’s part of what he had to say:
Then there is the obvious question of the president’s mental and psychological health. I know we’re not supposed to bring this up — but it is staring us brutally in the face. I keep asking myself this simple question: If you came across someone in your everyday life who repeatedly said fantastically and demonstrably untrue things, what would you think of him? If you showed up at a neighbor’s, say, and your host showed you his newly painted living room, which was a deep blue, and then insisted repeatedly — manically — that it was a lovely shade of scarlet, what would your reaction be? If he then dragged out a member of his family and insisted she repeat this obvious untruth in front of you, how would you respond? If the next time you dropped by, he was still raving about his gorgeous new red walls, what would you think? Here’s what I’d think: This man is off his rocker. He’s deranged; he’s bizarrely living in an alternative universe; he’s delusional. If he kept this up, at some point you’d excuse yourself and edge slowly out of the room and the house and never return. You’d warn your other neighbors. You’d keep your distance. If you saw him, you’d be polite but keep your distance.
Sullivan told Brian Stelter today that whereas most politicians who tell falsehoods may have a general “deference to reality,” Trump “simplly insists that black is white.”
And on the question of mental stability, Sullivan thinks that while this may be a taboo subject, it’s important to start talking about how the president keeps making “bonkers” statements.
He said he doesn’t “want to believe the President of the United States is just delusional or can’t accept reality,” but it’s harder for him to ignore.
Stelter brought up the criticism from the conservative media that there’s anti-Trump “hysteria” going around, leading to claims such as these. Sullivan responded by saying the real hysteria isn’t coming from him, but from the Oval Office.
About: I got my first computer in 1978. I set up a computer bulletin board system (BBS) in 1982. You had to dial in at 300 baud. A national magazine picked my BBS as one of the ten best sites. I was blogging before the word blog had been invented. People think the first blog was invented in 1995. They are wrong I was doing it in 1982.
When the rest of the world got around to inventing the world wide web I moved my BBS to the web. Yes, I been online for over 32 years.
You have found one of the very first online sites!
I was doing this before Google (1998), before YouTube (2005), Yahoo (1994) and all the rest of them.
You have found one of the fathers of all this that we all enjoy so much.
Welcome and enjoy and hang out with Jim Howard. He has been waiting for you.
One of the first online sites, one of the first blogs and one of the first webcam sites.
