Prompt of the Day: “Fandom”

The over enthusiastic cheerleaders from the Daily Post group of Word Press submitted the prompt of “Fandom” to set our minds to work.  They asked a simple question followed by a few sentences-“Are you a sports fan? Tell us about fandom. If you’re not, tell us why not.  Sharing is caring.”

This B.S. again?

Thought the place I grew up in was the only group of idiotic people in the world that placed sports ahead of everything else!  What about basic education for young kids?  Simply helping the older people of our society would be too much of a sacrifice to ask of the general population.   We have to help take care of our returning soldiers from  their service in the military.  They give everything to protect our country, while we remain safely here at home.

Why not throw a huge party for the various people who serve our towns every day like E.M.T.’s, firefighters and police officers?  They deserve a lot more respect than an athlete who just does the same thing repeatedly each day.  Police officers around here have been known to join in an ongoing game with kids while they wait for the school bus to arrive.  Each of the officers joined the two teams of kids in playing a good game of early morning football.  Both the two officers and all the kids had a great clean game until the bus arrived and took the kids off to school.  Why are simple events like this not spotlighted more?

 

Please help fight my disease

The medicine my neurologist has me on for my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri.  Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is impossible.  I remember when I first started on it , the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500.  There was no way my husband and I could afford that every 28 days!  Biogen (the manufacturing drug company) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely.  So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.  To contribute to the fund, click on the following link: https://www.gofundme.com/zfabhdes

All help will be greatly appreciated.   Thank you for your generosity!

Prompt for the Day: “Connect the Dots”

The prompt for the day given to us by the creative people working with the Daily Post group of Word Press is: “Connect the Dots“.  Added instructions to jump start our meager brains were “Scour the news for an entirely uninteresting story. Consider how it connects to your life. Write about that.”

My mind tends to be slower than most these days.  No clue where it will wander off to today!  Did come across a story from the Political Insider : “Obama Threatens to De-Fund Military Unless Terrorists are RELEASED!“.  Did not vote for the idiot in charge either time!  He continuous to prove the idiocy he showed in the Illinois congress did not improve in the least.

He can’t even decide what religion he is!  Is he a Christian or a Muslim? When he was elected, he attended the United Church of Christ.  Now, he prefers to pray to Allah!  Make up your mind.  His wife keeps sticking her nose into what the children of this country eats for lunch each day.  Know the school lunches stank when I in school, but from what I hear now it is much worse!

For some kids this may be the only decent meal they get for the entire day.  Was lucky enough to get a decent breakfast and supper every single day.  Some children rely on the school to get them fed edible food.  And the president wants our country to pay his wife for starving our kids?  I want to know what drugs the man is on and who his supplier is!

And why would we agree to releasing the terrorist we have in custody?  Is that so they can plan another devastating attack on our soil?  Even he can’t actually believe we are that stupid!  9/11/2001 still seems like yesterday to me. He actually wants to perpetuate the terrorism on our country?
