Thur. 11, 2018- Nick here….

Good morning all, the polar snowmaggedon freezing hell on earth end days – otherwise known as “a bad winter storm”  seems to be over for  a while.  It’s 60F and dreary here in Energy City.

Our continued best wishes to RBT, Barbara, and OFD.

Some interesting things going on in the world-

Only a week, seems short to me.  FEMA says 72 hours, but after the Cascadia rising exercise, they increased that locally to 2 weeks.  Ebola (or similar) could take 45 or more days to burn thru an area…  do you really want to be standing in line with a bunch of other people if SHTF, even locally and temporarily?

Don’t know the two guys’ histories.  Often creative people have other issues. Could all just be coincidence.


  • “”With government driving up the cost of labor, it’s driving down the number of jobs,” then Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s CEO Andy Puzder told Business Insider in 2016. “You’re going to see automation not just in airports and grocery stores, but in restaurants.””

“Elections have consequences.”  Hah.  What does society look like when there is no entry path to the world of work for indigenous people?  What are the long term implications of that?  And what happens when you continue to allow the influx of low skill, low education laborers into an economy that has fewer and fewer low skill jobs?

Weeelllll, one possible answer is an increase in crime….

That’s a lot of shiny.

It was 47 degrees, raining, and calm when I took Colin out at 8:15.

We have a possible rehab bed at a place that will support the trach. Bob is still coughing up gunk, they call it secretions, a lot. The trach is protecting his airway so he does not aspirate on the fluids again like he did in December. Until he can swallow and the gunk decreases he will have to have the trach. The place he may be going does have a respiratory therapist on site. The goal is to get him strong enough to swallow, go off the feeding tube, and eventually the trach. He is talking with the trach well enough we can understand most of what he is saying.
