Paranormal - Conspiracy - UFOs - Etc. / School Shootings
« on: February 17, 2018, 12:15:39 PM »
It is incomprehensible that every dollar store, every Walmart, every DMV, every stop light (practically) has surveillance.  Many employees are paid to sit in little rooms and observe the organization for theft. 

To protect cheap merchandise made in China.

But there is no surveillance in our schools.  How absurd!  That staff and children are treated as having less value than an item costing a dollar plus sales tax.

Random Topics / What Should Really Be Inside A First Aid Kit?
« on: February 10, 2018, 12:17:48 PM »
Everywhere I go, first aid kits suck.  They usually have a couple painkillers individually wrapped, some tiny little bandages, a pair of tweezers, some antiseptic (if you're lucky)... That's about it.

When emergencies happen, people need glucose, ice, Benydryl, a meal replacement bar, hand warmers, a disposable thermometer, eye wash, water, a cup, a calming agent like chamomile or Calms Forte, a ventilated mask, sprain wrap, large sanitary wound pads and large adhesive bandages, menstrual pads, maybe an OTC inhaler like Primatine, cough drops, mucous relief........

Because a little paper cut the size of which most emergency kits supply is not as much of an emergency as an asthma attack, hypoglycemia, a sprain, a knot on the head, a sudden fever, dehydration, something large or toxic in the eye, unexpected large bleeding, uncontrollable coughing, etc...

There are ice packs which do not require refrigeration.  One of our local businesses keeps them on hand.

What would YOU say an ideal first aid kit should stock?

Random Topics / Apothecary Organization
« on: February 10, 2018, 12:05:29 PM »
Hello.  How do YOU organize your apothecary as you age?  It used to be so simple: a bottle of baby aspirin in the bathroom medicine cabinet.  Fast forward 30 years, and that little bottle of aspirin has grown tentacles into all sorts of tubes and bottles all over. Today, in seniors' homes, I see messes of meds taking up windowsills, tables,and all available shelf space, all over the bathroom and bedroom, with no organization.  Not to mention medicinal herbs, foods, and supplements.  The last few times I was sick, including recently, I did not feel like rummaging through bag after case of crap to find relief.  Even in a small space, there must be a good way to organize one's personal prescriptions, OTC, homeopathic, and healing herbs/foods/supplements.

Several items need to be in one's purse or right by the bedside (if not in the bed). But what to do with all the supplements, prescriptions, OTC including homeopathic, herbs, etc...  The other day, I reached for toothpaste as I left the house, but when I got to my destination, it turned out I had packed hydrocortisone cream, not toothpaste.  What if I hadn't noticed before using it???  So, on top of all that now I need the poison hotline number handy, too???

It's hard to find one item when there are so many.  Should the bottle of parsley really sit next to cough medicine?  If I put the dried parsley or celery in with the food, it won't be handy when I reach for it for medical reasons.  When I need those prunes, I don't want to hike to the kitchen, where someone else may or may not have put their fingers in them.  But it feels awkward to pack dried herbs next to a bottle of cough syrup!

Should people keep all their tube items together so they are forced to select carefully in order to avoid mistakes?  The fonts keep getting smaller and smaller - it is hard to tell what's in a tube at a quick glance.  Sometimes I put a large masking tape label onto items.  Do other people do that?

Surplus prescriptions can go together in one place.  Doesn't that make sense?  But if I use my apothecary correctly, I don't need the prescriptions very often.  So the supplements, OTC, herbs, homeopathic, and other healing items are just as important as the prescriptions are.

Should people organize by topic, like a section for pain, another section for swelling, etc...?
Or, should they organize by medium, with all herbs together, all pills together, all supplements together?  I prefer to organize topically, but when herbs and foods are part of the section, it is kind of weird.

When I was younger, I saw many older people's homes cluttered with OTC everywhere.  But there also were some seniors who seemed much more organized.  I wonder if they had a system, or if they just were healthier and didn't need as much stuff.  Did they have a secret organizer that hung like those over-the-door shoe holders!  Or a hanging sweater holder?  Has anyone tried that?  Drawers are difficult, not just because liquids leak, but also because you can't tell what most items are just by looking down on the top of the lid.  While if the bottles lay, then they rattle a lot.

Purse pill packs are relatively easy to organize and prioritize, especially using a dab of masking tape to label sections.  And the bedside stuff is pretty clear.  But refilling the purse and bedside can be insane, having to locate supplements, herbs, homeopathic, OTC, prescriptions, and special foods.  Maybe everything that is in the purse packs should be coordinated into a large bag from which to refill?  I guess.  But that still leaves backup supplies to be organized.

This topic might be silly, but i'd hate for one of us to start brushing out teeth with hydrocortisone, or to take pills that are too powerful or not powerful enough, just because the appropriate pill is hard to locate.  No matter how Falkiesque all this is, it is not as bad as the burning poo thread plus this is not as stupid as George Noory is so there is that.  How would you recommend apothecary organization to seniors with poor role models?

Tonight I googled Medicare.  Wikipedia and a government site were informative, but I still have a lot of questions.  Does anyone want to hold my hand on this topic?

Why would anyone purchase long-term health care insurance, when everyone can get Medicare?  For instance, my mother purchased hers for years, but toward the time she was starting to think about needing it, she could no longer afford the insurance!  After all those years of unused payments.

She might have been better off enjoying her money (The payments were high), and just relying on Medicare?  Since that might be all she gets anyhow.  All that money down the drain, lining the pockets of aggressive insurance reps... And she might not be able to sustain the payments until the time she really needs the benefits.

So how bad is Medicare?  One of my friends gets torn skin in her groin, rendering life (let alone exercise or sex) risky and painful, with open skin all the time.  But her Medicaid covered estrogen, which fixed the problem.  But when she turned 65, Medicare would not cover her estrogen like her prior benefits had.  She was in tears all the time over it.

And what happens to old people who can't afford housing?  My retirement income might barely pay rent, but it won't pay even a fourth of the cost of a room in a retirement home.  And, what if I need assisted living?

I could probably get used to the inconvenient regimentation of a facility, but if I want the creature comforts of the home I rent, will Medicare pay for help?  Like many people, I like creature comforts that a facility just would not accommodate.

I know the Methodists take care of their retired Minister's in special, nice retirement homes.  Who pays for that?  Why would the church provide something that Medicare is already in place for?

I already down-sized, so Medicare isn't going to take any assets in my case.  But, will it confiscate my retirement checks?

When I worked at a retirement home, residents paid for their rent with personal checks.  But isn't some of the rent covered by Medicare?  I suppose I would have to pay some rent, but what would Medicare cover?

Who will have my interests at heart if my brain starts to go?  I don't have any decent family.  What if I can't speak for myself?  Many women with dementia lose the ability to talk sense.  They just rattle, "One to one.  One to one.  One to one..." and you have little idea what they so frustratedly are trying to communicate.  There are no flash cards, no picture books of ADLs, nothing to help understand what they need.  Unless you know them well, or knew them before the brain damage.  You'd think in today's day and age, every demented person would be given several photographic communication tools, where they could just point to an ADL to suggest what they need, whether it be food, a taxi, whatever.  Like picture books or flash cards.  At least for basic ADL stuff.  If I lose my speech, who will help me?

One guy came into my workplace the other day.  He was elderly, and needed to use the phone AGAIN.  His phone had been cut off due to billing, and he confided all his bills were on minimum payment plans.  He comes in all the time to use the phone, but shouldn't he know about the Obama phone, as well as food stamps?  I asked him if he had ever heard of our state's welfare agency, and he said he never heard of them.  Why isn't anyone helping this man?  He is perfectly pleasant.  I gave him their phone number and told him he probably could get a free phone from them.  But I felt I had to do it in whispers, since the manager evidently just keeps letting him use the phone without educating him on how he can help himself.  So, who is going to help me help myself when I am that old?  No one is helping him!  So, they won't help me?

George Noory doesn't suck as much anymore.  He is kinder, gentler, less smug!

He admits his forked tongue!

He promotes people of both genders and all ages.

He's giving shows away on You Tube.

He challenges spurious claims, or responds with tongue-in-cheek "It could be..."

He made the docs say disclaimers.

He stopped his annual lashings of Linda over trivialities.

He no longer shames poor callers who drop off the line......when in actuality, they may have died or had to go to the hospital.  So, he has behaved more sensitively, asking them to call back.

He is the first to admit his fallible side, admitting burning his mouth, admitting tripping in the mud puddle, admitting getting locked out of the workroom...  He doesn't try to look perfect.

He just doesn't suck as much anymore.  Days and days go by, while the Sucks thread barely moves!

George Noory has listened to us!  Although not from his avatar, which logs barely any time online.  But obviously he has our pulse.  Could it be under a secret avatar?  I checked Emperor ones, yet they log no time either.  Is he hacking in from a back door?  Because he has definitely heard us and enhanced his skills, all while logging no time!  Uh-mazeen!

The night of the largest U.S. shooting massacre, in Las Vegas outside the Mandalay Bay Hotel, other terrorism happened in several nearby places.  But it is being covered up.  A pyramid was nearby, which is unusual too. 

Staff at the nearby Bellagio Hotel are on You Tube explaining gunfire and lockdowns which occurred the same night.  Staff of a nearby restaurant said the same thing, on You Tube.

Terrorism was predicted for October.  The date of the massacre was 09/11/01 reversed!

The shooter was a patsy.

Radio and Podcasts / Abstaining From Coast Host George Noory
« on: December 24, 2017, 10:29:35 PM »
Coast-to-Coast is not Playboy Radio.  But...

This month, it was all about Hooters, "spin-the-bottle", and "beautiful women in bikinis".

After the "beautiful women in bikinis" mention, I have abstained from Coast on George nights.

In the past, listeners' ears were graced with:

Sexy demons, send some.  (how did that work out, George?)
Send photos (female fans)
"Pretty and fun" (marriage wrecking) nude model Elizabeth Montgomery
"Gorgeous" LA women
Flirting with a 22-year old guest
Being (married at the time and) in love with the MTV ZZ Top actresses
Swedish women
The Splash mermaid
Tattooed ex's
The famous gaming model
"Travelin' Man"
Sandra Bullock (no mention of her gravity-defying hairdo, though...)
Caller-Brenda-I'm-George-And-I'm-lonely
Caller-Candy-I-George-Am-A-Tease-Just-Asking-For-A-Stalker
The Daily Single George Noory spread
Nude model Lisa Rinna "I've seeeeen her around!"
Nude model Marilyn Monroe, who he considers an example of "good taste in women" despite her morals
The "attractive" actress who texts him
The stripper story in which the only thing he cared about was, "Well, uh, did she ever post a photo?"
A female caller who he lamented did not send a photo
Elvira "return without your brothers"
Nude model 25-year old Miley Cyrus
The (underweight, dehydrated, 10-day colon cleansing) Victoria's Secret panty (and recently nude) models
Flirting with (married) nude model Jessica Hall
Phrases to Whitley Strieber such as, "What does she look like, that is the question!"
Saying "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas"
Saying he takes a Vegas vacation whenever he plays a certain bumper song
Burlesque dancers, described in detail
Ridiculing old people and people with dental problems (with his mush mouth!)
Panty model Christina Ferrari
Playboy panty model Yvette Vickers
Flirting with Playboy Nude model and animal rights activist Pam Anderson
Flirting with (engaged, at the time) panty model Jennifer Love Hewitt
Lusting for a "cave women"
Talking about pretty girls on tarot cards
Talking about making a young, breathy caller his "French correspondent"

It is really hard to believe George even has a stalker.  Who would want to date a man who's always going on about the sex appeal of many sundry nude or panty models, one of whom was found mummified in her home long after her death...?!  And, who would want to date a man who calls on sexy demons even though he already claims to have a stalker?!  And who wants to date a man with a stalker.  Like, where would you go..?

Random Topics / Is MD GN?
« on: December 17, 2017, 06:22:20 PM »
Hmmm...


I hope a good weekend all you are having.[/size]


Recently it came to my attention that Dr MD MD could be George Nuri.  Because is this, that George has a forked tongue so each side of the tongue he, uh, talks with, would pronounce one MD.  So since equals two MDs.  But everyone knows MD is only used once per titicular.  So with a double title, evidence is that George has forked tongue.  Also, George makes money same as MD.


What do you think?

What did anyone do today for health!  God knows we need health.  I don't see any point in anything like anorexia, but I would like to improve my habits!

Today I did my spinal stretches for pain management.  Nothing like pain to make me a snack zombie!    I ate some breakfast, ate something, so I didn't turn into a famished bottomless pit later.  I had a one cheat meal (but there is magnesium in chocolate), but at least I kept it small.  Today luckily included lots of cooked and uncooked veggies.  I put bran in water and choked it down, to fill me up and add fiber, since I don't get much grain fiber (being wheat gluten free).

I found out the "grocery bill" will be manageable this month, so that lowered stress, which will lower stress eating.  I forgot to put a little blood cleansing olive oil on my food today but it's not too late.  I had tried putting it in my morning coffee just to get it out of the way, but I was not able to drink it.  A wasted cup!

As others have pointed out, and as the testimonies in the video below say, there were two shooters shooting into the Bell Hotel.  Doesn't sound like they were cops, either.  Sooo?

Was Art Bell's stalker a gambler?  Or part of a conspiracy?
