my life so far ….

My Life So Far ……

It has been a rather hellish week due to a back problem of some long standing.

I had back surgery a long time ago, an experience I do not want to ever have again.  Pretty damn painful.  Got some meds from doctor, anti inflammatory/pain killer combo I was told.  Of course, it has a tendency to cause stomach upset. Well that’s ok I suppose as at least now I am able to put my damn socks on and tie shoes. Not that I couldn’t do those things a week ago when this happened.  But not without a lot of groaning and a lot of very serious pain.  Now I can bend somewhat and even stand up when going to the loo.  Not too funny. 

Over the years, from time to time it goes out but has never lasted this long. Won’t stay here too long today but I am feeling a lot better. Which means there isn’t any excuse not to communicate with folks.

Over the last week I’ve done somewhat more reading then I usually do. What else was there to do?  Don’t have a TV and I couldn’t boot and sit at a computer.  Couldn’t stand either btw.  Couldn’t even get outta bed without bracing myself and painfully pulling myself up.  Or maybe I was pushing up. Yeah, pushing seems correct.

Well anyway, so I’m reading lots and because we get two papers (three on weekends) I tend to read things having more to do with the part of the world I live in now, then the world I left behind seven years ago. Normally I read all the news stuff and ignore the celeb gossip and health features. However, lately I started noticing things I had skipped over in the past.

Every single day there are stories having to do with health and warnings of approaching disaster.  For example.  Did you know “new studies” say that thinner people are more likely to have heart attacks and bad health overall, then chubby folks?  Then there is another study that asks, “Could food-packaging chemical rob men of their sex appeal?” No kidding. A gender-bending chemical found in food packaging may reduce a man’s ability to attract a female.  A study from the University of Missouri found male mice who were exposed to bisphenol ‘A’ as babies, became demasculanised and ‘behaved more like females.’
Well hell people. Nobody should be eating mice anyway. And who does these studies?  I remember years ago they said eggs were gonna kill me. So I cut back on those and now they say, “Woops. Never mind.” heh-heh. Also, researchers now say that bacon isn’t gonna kill me after all and in fact may actually be healthy.  Even knowing how damn lucky I really am can be depressing, given the knowledge of what can happen in the future.  I forgot to mention it but, I was also listening to radio a lot more. Kinda like the days before TV.  I heard a frightening program last night on the aging and old age care or lack of, and it really,really made an impression on me.  Scared the heck outta me more like it. 

Then we were told there was an ice age due anytime within the next 500 or 1,000 years and there was something to do with the ozone layer.  Now we’re being told we are not gonna freeze but fry.  At my age, frankly I don’t give a damn.  I have other things that bother and depress. I really do.  Like, seeing contemporaries pass away and many far younger then I am.

So anyway, the things I was reading made me think even more of the things I think about anyway.  Except now I dwell on em more. Can get rather depressing though because I’m thoroughly convinced that our world is a totally disintegrating and disordered place.  Well it is darn it.  A story in one paper this past week reports that some teachers here are quite reluctant to discuss the attack on America on 9/11, because they feel it might provoke “racism and islamopobia.” They especially worry about bringing the subject up in classes where a certain group who belong to a religion of peace, make up the majority of students.  Hells bells, we wouldn’t want to upset them.  What next?  Lets not say anything about the Holocaust least it offend Germans?  And how’s this bit of lunacy?

BINMEN refused to take away a retired granny’s recycling because they said an ice cream tub she put in was the wrong shape.
The city council said that they only took bottle shaped plastic.
The council has since said that the policy is now revised so all’s well that ends.

Police here carry a guidance card that warns them, “suspects cannot be handcuffed ‘just’ because they pose a danger to police.” You just could not make that up.  What kind of insanity is that?  And speaking of insanity.  I’ve been watching this once proud country little by little ceding its sovereignty to unelected bureaucrats in foreign countries.  They can not deport criminals and even terrorists, if there’s a question of their “human rights” being violated in some way by their home country.  Britain is sadly bound in many ways by the European Court of Human Rights (and abuses).  That doesn’t say anything positive about their sovereignty to me.  take a look at this

One bit of good news that came out last week, although very small, is still something to feel good about.
One of four hooded men who broke into a house in the middle of the night, was killed by the homeowner.  The bad guy was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of another burglary but was released.  I guess he won’t be breaking into anyone else’s home anymore.  And that’s a good thing.
Stay Tuned

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
