Wednesday Hodgepodge 31 January 2018

Due to some recent glitches with Blogger, this post will also be posted on my Wordpress blog, How to Manage Your Monkey. Please join us there.

1. Speaking of endings....at your wit's end, at loose ends, a dead end, burn the candle at both ends, all's well that end's well, or no end in sight...which 'end' phrase might best be applied to your life lately? Explain.  

I think probably burning the candle at both ends.  Over the past few months, we have really been up against it.  We are losing our YouTube partnership because we haven’t gotten enough subscribers.  We have to get up to 1,000 subscribers and keep 4,000 viewing hours per month.  We come very close to the viewing hours.  People just watch and don’t subscribe.

Meanwhile, my health took a turn for the worse, and we spent all the holiday in the hospital and nursing home.  Suzanne was by my side the whole time.  Sometimes she had to sleep on the floor because no other accommodations were made.

We are finally back home.  We are trying to get back up to speed on our book and product reviews.  And now, we are trying to get back to blogging the memes.
2. What was a must have accessory when you were growing up? Did you own one? If so tell us what you remember about it.

I would have to say a pocket knife.  Some places these are called jack knives.  The Barlow and Old Timer were the most popular in our circle.  It seemed it was always handy.  Of course, now if one were to carry one to school they would be arrested.

Yes, I almost always had one.  It wasn’t really a luxury but a necessity because, back then, we actually worked. There were always ropes to be cut, fishing lines to cut, cans to be opened, etc.

Once I had a comb that looked just like a switchblade.  I thought I was hot stuff then.

3. Something that made you smile yesterday?

Yesterday and this morning was a special moon event.  I can’t see it because I am low vision.  However, it made Suzanne and our oldest daughter very happy to see it,

4. January 30th is National Croissant Day. Do you like croissants? Sweet or savory? We're having chicken salad for lunch...would you rather have yours served on a croissant, a wrap, a bagel, bread, or a roll of some sort?

We don’t have croissants that often. I do like them just about any way they come, even plain.  As far as chicken salad is concerned, I like mine on a good old Ritz cracker.  

5. Sum up your January in fifteen words or less.
Scary, Boring, Nerve Wracking, Tiring, Sleepless, Helpless, Expensive, Life-changing,

6.  Insert your own random thought here.

Our experiences over the last few months leads me to beg anyone who can to get Long Term Care Insurance.  This insurance can mean the difference between healing in a hospital or being trucked off to a nursing home.  Even a good nursing home is a nightmare.

Everyone should read this book, especially anyone with substantial assets.  This is a true story about how our probate court system declares people with assets to be incompetent, in spite of the protests of their family and friends.  They are placed in nursing homes, against their will.  Then, their family is not allowed to see them or communicate with them while the government sucks out their assets.  Think this is far-fetched?  We did a little online research and found out that it happens in every state.  

Our only hope is to get a federal law passed to stop this.  Do a little online research and learn what is going on.  Since we just got out of the nursing home, we saw how poorly most nursing homes are being run.  Suzanne was by my side the whole time and, if she were not there, I would have been wrongly medicated on several occasions.
