Just a few minutes left before I have to sign in for work.
Not feeling too terribly bad today, a good thing. Still have that cough, but from the looks of it, that stuff hangs around quite a while before it leaves your system.
Runs to Casa Grande and another part of Chandler is the fare for today's doings, at least I will have something to do to keep me busy.
Weather has turned back to clear skies - a good thing, that helps a coughing cold to go away faster than cold, overcast skies and blowing winds.

So, hopefully make it through the work day without too much trouble - or if so, the work day doesn't last forever - get home, take a nap and just continue to recover. I wonder how much of anyone's life, on-average, is spent being sick?

Huge variation in that question. My sister and I had almost perfect attendance in both school and Sunday School for well over ten years, both because we were not sick much and because it was expected that we would go to school regardless of how we felt about going.

Childhood obesity, ADHD, Autism, Drug usage, learning disabilities and the plethora of other childhood ailments now afflicting millions of children .... had not been discovered yet. We got measles and chickenpox. Polio was just in the process of being conquered.

Valid point - especially about the obesity. I've always wondered about these diseases that have been "discovered" in the last 20, 30 years or less. Have they always been around or are they mutants that have showed up because of a very unhealthy population?

I know that we didn't stay home very often. If we did, we were not allowed to get out of bed or watch TV. Hope you're feeling better!

Interesting story and the first I've seen of it - and I read the local news just about every day.

Thanks Kate, I am feeling MUCH better!

Well it's almost 3 pm and I haven't heard from the manager about a run for tomorrow, so I'm going to assume that it isn't go...
