Things I've learned & Things I like

CNN - Drinking game Neknominate sweeps social media

Sad for the kids that died, and sad for their families. That said the vast majority of these people are adults (or at least older teenagers). They are old enough to go to the military, vote, enroll in college, and of course be parents. I’d like to salute those that didn’t succumb to the siren like calls to drink out of a toilet. Kids that can see into the future and choose the responsible route without being spoon fed the solution are a rare and dying breed.

I have learned that I can stop and reverse a bout of extreme hay fever by wearing an N95 mask. I’ve dealt with allergies my whole life and they are especially bad from Jan to mid Feb. This year in the middle of a horrible allergy attack it came to me that maybe wearing the mask would provide me some pollen free air and thus the allergies wouldn’t show up as sever the next day. Amazingly after wearing it for about 45 min my allergy attack was almost gone. Scared the allergies would come back I wore the mask all day and while I slept. I woke up feel great, but about 45 min after waking up the allergies started coming back so I put the mask back on and the rest of the day went smoothly. I use them now anytime my allergies show up. Life changer!

I’ve witnessed two horrible shuttle disasters. Exactly 28 years ago, as a second grader, I watched the Challenger explode on TV and then 17 years and 3 days later I watched the Columbia break up over Dallas. I can still hear the roar of the fireball streaking across the sky. I wish I could forget them both. =(

So true!
