My thoughts of the day.Do not take a Service job if you DO NOT want to give service and expect people to take it!!!My step dad is fighting lung cancer and his oxygen concentrator went out sat. my mom called sunday morning and reported it. On monday his rep calls and says I cant make it till weds. maybe thrusday. Well thats too long for someone to fight a concentrator thats quiting when ever it wants moms not sleeping scared to death dads not sleeping on monday they was also told to use it with out the water and he started coughing blood This is not going well his heart rate is well over 100 and wont come down hes worring about the o2. On wednesday I get a call saying help so I go over to find all this out plus more. Its been 3 months and the rep has only called once never checked the concentrator. She lives like 28 miles away and cant make it to help him in less then 4 days. So the good daughter I am I take over. He is scared now that hes not going to get service and Im going to mess things up. Of course I tell him to relax and watch the show. I call another town question one Whats the number to the office that takes complaints? Lady gives me the number with a shake voice. Question two does your office give better service then other said office? Lady I would have to say yes cause I work for this office. Going good so far Question three can you be here before 6pm it is now 3pm? Yes we can! What do you need ? I told her and new stuff was in the drive in 35 min new rep drove 32 miles from city limits to house !! Service with a smile. The new Rep gave him enough hose he can reach every part of his house even go to his own bed with his o2 !!!!!!! Well wouldn't ya know it the old rep shows up before the new one is done. Yeap she is mad gets out ready to bump bellies. Guess she was not expecting a mad daughter to be there just as ready. First words out her mouth was I'm calling regional office!!She Yea lets do that. Great Idea lady!!! First off this is not about your heathcare its his and he has a choice and what you did is not exceptable .You do not leave a man in his condition to worry if he will have o2 or not for four days! So yeah lets make that call!! He has a choice in providers and his choice is an office he can get to and that will deliver service. Oh its not your office. By the time I was done she was crying and I walked off with now Im going to go try and calm my dad now that he has o2 he can count on! After all was said and done My poor daughter who got to see how to handle people like that. Said grandma mom made that lady cry she could not see were she was walking for the tears. Grandma said Yeah hunny I know your mom can get good at that when someone she loves is suffering because people do not do the right thing. That is why I wanted her help. So if you don't want to serve do not I repeat DO NOT take a job to serve. You just might run in to a mad daughter!!!
Oh yeah Its been a day but its done and the nite is quiet. So maybe they are sleeping a good nites sleep after 4 nites of fighting a life threatening ordeal.

Whats equal about....

I found out that good old aspertame is changing its name again it will be called aminosweet. So read closely as now its called a natural sweetner. That is not even close to true its a lie but thats how it works.Raw food stores get raided and cheme companies get to say and do what ever. All man equal hmm. Then its ok for congress to do insider trading and yet anyone else get a hint and its off the jail house rock ya go. We are not equal those in power have things set so we a equal. Equal comes will all the fields are the same all parties have the same chance as any other. Yet today the bottom group is pushed to the bottom every step they take and the top stays above.
Right now I am so tried of watching the bottom be pushed down I want to scream.The only way to get a good job is collage yet the cost is so great some never get it paid off. The food corp puts poison in our food tell us its good for us yet it causes illness .Why is it ok for things to be so unequal?Why is it people arent madder then they are? Whats equal about were we are in this country? At what point do the people say enough?
The housing market is just as bad they price house too high tell people its the way to go and then forclosure comes and people are confused. People you can not charge crazy amount and agree and not have problems. It just doesnt work that that. Fair prices make lifes better for all. Whats equal about the number of homeless due to this mess greed has caused?Many other companies and groups are doing the same thing.If we want equal we have to make it happon!
Study history learn the old ways and We can find Equal!!!!

I was thinking I want cheap turkey year round. So, when they went on sale I bought two of them and in to jars they will go. Simple easy summer turkey. Pop my jar and healthy meal fast.Why do we eat things that are not ment to be eaten? Pink slime, wood pulp, nerve gas,and much more? Wonder why we are sick, don't feel good and can't lose weight.If we eat real food it feeds our body and we don't crave the junk feel full and the weight just falls off. When we grow and process our food we know what we are eating. If you cant grow your food shot to buy the less processed and do it yourself. The flavor will shock you! On this note I plan to buy "Ball Blue Books" for each of my kids to give to them. I think I want to try to make some Canadian bacon. With the price of bacon here so high.I am not a bacon fan but, it would be fun to try and who knows it might taste better.
We are being warned that we are in great trouble as a country.Lots of things could effect us in different ways. It is up to each of us to take care of our loved ones. Learning to make foods the old fashion ways seem to be a grand idea. If you have kids get them in on the lesson make memories both you and them will never forget.Getting kids to help with food prep is great bonding fix a drink sit back and chat while you learn together.Ok so you don't like cooking find another forgotten skill and learn it with your kids.There are so many things out there to do find something and learn a skill with your kids. Our kids are only young once and if we let that pass us by we can not get it back.
Our life is like the wind always blowing but never the same breeze . Harness the wind and take the ride of life just do not let it pass you by.

It has been a while for me to post.I have been pondering what to post about.So much is going on both personal and global.My step dad if fighting cancer and using alternative ways to do it.It has been a lesson lots of research.Learning to cook for him has been hard work. The garden died due to heat and lack of water now things are coming up just before the snow so they will die too.Keeping everything going has been alot of work.
Another summer is over and the winter work is now upon us.I need to write up my seed list for next year garden.I need to finish canning the freezers. So if we have power out we do not lose what we have in them.The to do list seems to keep growing.
We have had a cousin come to visit and see how we live and learn some of the old arts like canning, cheese making, gardening and few other things we do.He seems to be enjoying the work and the life style we have learned to live. My son is coming around yesterday he told me we need to buy more milk filters . He would like at least 3 boxes (with a thumbs up sign) just to be uhh yeah prepped. All I could do was smile.I think the history lesson had some effect on him.He researched German history.He seems to be more will to learn this year. Learning the history of the world seems to be making him want to have stuff on hand now.One down whoot whoot!!
The news looks bleak on our freedoms. I seem to be upsetting people cause I do
not sell my milk. With all the people getting raided and arrested seem safer just to supply for myself not sell. Sure the extra money would be nice just not worth the risk. Tsa seems to reaching out from just airports.The world sure is changing from what it once was.Soon we will tell tales that will sound like fairy tales of what life once was.
As we walk threw life things change just as nature follows its seasons. The trees once green full of life and beauty slowly turn to shades of orange yellow and red. Then we wake to find them empty all the leaves gone and the tree is dead looking. Seems we have hit the falling of the leaves in life too. Just as the trees battle the winter. We too must face it.Spring comes for the trees and it will come to us as well. Enjoy life till next time!
