    No Statin Experiment for a Week-5th Day Results

    This is the 5th day into the no statins challenge I decided to do spinning off of the thread "Just Curious". It involved me asking about anyone having the trigger finger release surgery and their results. The main result it seemed was that several folks thought that if I quit taking Zocor, the...

    I Realized An Epic Tragedy

    Yep. A tragedy of epic proportions. I am probably slow in realizing this as well. But, today it hit me. Almost made me wanna cry! You say, WHAT!!! They shrunk the size of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. How horrible. How deplorable. How dare they?

    I Think I Saw

    For Belinda's birthday, I gave her a Venus Fly Trap. She likes plants and I thought it would be different. This afternoon, while in the kitchen, which is where it is on the kitchen window sill, I believe I saw it eat a fly! Neat! Cool! The reason I am saying I believe I saw it eat the fly...

    Younger Stupidity

    Was in a restaurant a couple of days ago and had a nice looking young lady as our waitress. She saw the 1st Marine Division emblem tattooed on my arm and asked me what it was. I told her and she just looked at me and asked what that was. I told her, you know, the US Marine Corps. Still a...
