Two weeks ago I could no longer walk down stairs. I tried. But it took repeated efforts just to make it up one step. My mind couldn’t figure out where the step was. I managed to make it down the steps by moving very carefully, watching and using my feet to “feel out” where each step began and ended.
Two days ago I tried again, this time with just 3 steps. I couldn’t do it. I needed a friend to carefully support me, half-carrying me. It was terrifying.
I went to the doctor. He did some bloodwork, took tests, scheduled…
Why did the father not get custody of his child after the child was discovered with METH in her system??? What kind of idiot thinks that the mother was an adequate caregiver???
Happy Easter! Given that it’s Easter weekend, you’ll pardon me if I quote Ecclesiastes: For everything there is a season, A time for every activity under heaven. If you are a crypto investor, now is the time to be invested in alt-coins.
Crypto has traditionally moves in four year cycles based on Bitcoin’s halving events. Every time Bitcoin halves, it kicks off a bull market in the cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin leads the way and then alt-coins follow.
What makes these cycles so potentially profitable is that Bitcoin and the alts don’t move in tandem. …
I've never made love to someone I didn't love. Back when I was younger, I waited until marriage.
Would I have sex with someone for money? Only if I desperately needed the money to save the life of my child, for example.
I'm not judging you or anyone else. I have good friends who treat sex very differently than I do. That seems to work for them but it would not work for me.
Meghan Markle is rich. She is beautiful. As far as I know, she has her health and is married to a man who adores her. She has lovely children.
Do I envy her? No. I wish her every happiness.
But I find it hard to drum up any sympathy for her based on her interview with Oprah.
Part of this is due to the fact that I think she is lying. Or maybe she simply mis-remembers certain things, such as the day she got married. …
For much of March, Ethereum seemed to be stuck in the doldrums. I bought in at around $1400, so I got a little nervous when the price dropped below $1500 on March 2nd. But I HODLed, and now things seem to be turning around for the top alt-coin.
Where do I see Ethereum going from here?
It depends on your timeframe, but I think I could easily see a 5x return on my investment — so about $7–8K Ethereum seems very possible to me. Some analysts think $10K Ethereum is likely. …
I woke up this morning to a very nice message from my bank. My stimulus check has arrived. Wow, for once the government moved faster than I expected!
Then I checked the crypto charts. WTH? Bitcoin is down 6%?
So guess what I did with my check? I put part of it into Bitcoin.
Is that a good move?
Only time will tell.
However, it’s important when you are investing to look at the big picture. And the big picture is super-bullish for Bitcoin for a variety of reasons. One of which has to do with my stimulus check.
On January 19th, the Long Beach City Council approved a measure that raised the salaries of grocery store workers. During the pandemic, these workers are among those that are considered essential and the city wanted to show its appreciation for these heroes.
It’s a nice gesture, isn’t it?
As far as the details — the unanimous vote mandated a 4-month increase of $4 an hour for those who worked at supermarkets with at least 300 employees nationwide. In other words, the big chain grocery stores, the ones that can totally afford to pay their workers more, right?
That $4 an…
I’ve taken risks all my life. Sometimes they pay off. Sometimes they don’t.
The risk that paid off the most saved my life.
I was 36 years old. I woke up with a swollen right breast. The surface of the skin was mottled like a grapefruit. It was inflamed, hot, and it hurt.
To say I was alarmed is an understatement.
I barely kept the panic in check until I saw my doctor. Then he panicked.
I had inflammatory breast cancer. At the time I was diagnosed, this was a death sentence. …
