Ah yes, LaPaloma road...the scene of many coors/purple double dome adventures. Six of us drifting in a baby blue Plymouth Valiant, gravel flying all the way to Hornitos. And back.

Capsulization re doctors


There is a point, where much as you don't want to hear it, you are literally written off

There is one doctor in particular I would apply the nunchuks to if ...

It's mostly all new to me and I am not looking forward to the complications.

I got lots of tubing and can go all the way to the door and the john with no problems and still have air. I made sure there was lots of extra tubing when I left the hospital. I also have absolute confidence in my medical staff's knowledge and complete mastery of the situation.

I love disillusionment.

Like so:

Show Me the Way To Mar a Lago

Tourists from somewhere
apparently going nowhere
in shorts n sandals
n glassed up behind shades
sayiní they been in sh!tholes
but this is the deepest one yet

Iím laughiní as I KEEP ON DIGGINí
cuz Iím so proud of the way the sides
donít collapse too fast

I know thatís some great excavatiní
in the sand down Mar a Lago way
cuz I been here for years
gonna be here for a while longer
Iím sure, now the secretís out

I sh#t you not
some of the greatest two n three holers
in the known world hereabouts
gold damn fixtures
ivory handles
in all of Ďem
yards of the softest tissue
and no flush
but the cutest little fly swatters
made from trump-hairs
woven into silhouettes
of the GREAT ONE

Dis is some good sh#t, WRM. Gracias.

The Crab Pot Cafe

Down on Pier 30 where the mugs all go for coffee
You can sit for hours and hours playing nursemaid
To the damsels in distress who float about
In your black brew like yellowish icebergs
Calved from the Plain Glacier
Or like pink or green or red or white
Bergs born of the Sprinkles Glacier.

Donít overstay your visit
Unless you tip the waitress in advance.

I personally feel like a hero
When Iíve rescued all the little red specks
Of peppers afloat in the corn chowder.
I set them aside on a napkin,
Their own Gilliganís Isle
But with no Ginger,
Not even Ginger Baker
As theyíve probably had enough Cream.

All the while I toss in Oyster Crackers
As lifeboats for the corn kernels,
All dull yellow and some hollow
But they never climb aboard.
Theyíve long ago drowned
So I use the round silver spoon
To collect their bodies
And to bail the liquid.

They have not died in vain
And fill me belly full.

A challenge to keep the lifeboats floating
Until the bodies are all retrieved,
But when they are all safely buried
In my gut I mash them Oyster Cracker boats
And add a few drops of catsup
And eat that followed by a few sips
Of black coffee.

Coffee, donuts, chowder,
Then a sunrise, if Iím lucky,
Over the East Bay hills
As a floor show that
Beats the hell out of anything seen
On Broadway in North Beach.

for what itz worth, as the question was posed then morphed, i never posted nearly did :As a new member of the fun team there is now a long stretch of flat line at near the top of your personal graph. where the only limiting factor of the level of intoxication reduces the blinding stabbing pain to a more survivable dull ache , allowing you to continue. . .

Then too yet there is no reason to dispossess them of their belief that it was rarefied air & largely myth, far from any repetitive truth. . . no one climbed while intoxicated then, and no 0ne does now,. . . brahhahahaha...

Doc Love at the VA North Valley Clinic has told me that I ought not to be drinking fruit juice. He says itís best I drink water as a patient with CHF (congestive heart failure), my main current problem with AF (Atrial Fibrillation) and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).

There are numerous warnings about cranberry juice in the literature given out as information for patients with CHF.

Iíve dumped out all the cranberry-tangerine juice I bought last week on the advice of others, as well. Cranberry juice is a no-no for me, as well, since it is known to prevent Warfarin from being therapeutic. It is hard to control the International Normalized Ratio (INR) which is used to measure the current effectiveness of the Warfarin, which should run in the area of 2.0 Ė 3.0 to be therapeutic. Cranberry juice is mixed with lots of others and fairly cheap by comparison with other juices.

Notice, I wrote "current problem," because there may be proscriptions on eating currants or drinking currant juice that I am not aware of. Not that I would buy the stuff for the prices they want, which is about $9.00/quart. As bad a sting as pomegranate juice. Nectar of currant, also out of my price range.

Blackcurrants, were once popular in the United States as well, but became less common in the 20th century after currant farming was banned in the early 1900s, when blackcurrants, as a vector of white pine blister rust was considered a threat to the U.S. logging industry.

Antioxidants are found in currant juice and many other juices.

Hah! Big deal. According to Wikipedia,

Although certain levels of antioxidant vitamins in the diet are required for good health, there is considerable debate on whether antioxidant-rich foods or supplements have anti-disease activity. Moreover, if they are actually beneficial, it is unknown which antioxidant(s) are needed from the diet and in what amounts beyond typical dietary intake.[8][9][10]†Some authors dispute the hypothesis that antioxidant vitamins could prevent chronic diseases,[8][11]†while others maintain such a possibility is unproved and misguided from the beginning.[12]


Antioxidation and irradiation, two modern bugaboos about which we know little, actually. Sheep just graze and get fat. Why donít we? Salmon just eat raw fish and seafood and get big and fat. Why donít we?

And there are warnings on the use of Simvastatin, which I take nightly, unless I forget to do so, with grapefruit juice. I buy grapefruit juice about as often as I drink grappa, which is never.

Iíve never had grappa, but I used to like a Planterís Punch now and then, back in the eighties when I drank constantly and copiously at La Hacienda on the corner of G and Olive, now a Pizza Hut, not a popular Mexican restaurant. The days of the Eurythmics and Pet Shop Boys and Rush and Def Leppard.

Would I lie to you?
