Well it finally happened, for the first time since April 2002 I have been ill and had to miss work.  Thursday morning at about 3AM I awoke to a mild fever, aches, chills and a cough that could and probably did wake the dead, given the direct line of sound now existing between my bedroom and a small graveyard.   So I was out yesterday and again today.  I'm at about 80% efficiency right now and I credit that will lot's of sleep, gatorade, water and of course great drugs.   I don't like being ill.  It makes me crankier than normal.  I get into a really foul mood and am really unsufferable to be around.  Luckily, I live alone.

While laying in bed, well medicated, in one of my more lucid moments I got a thought.  It's not such a bad thing to be home sick.  It's a short walk to the toilet to puke and take care of the other things that get taken care of there.  It's a short walk to the kiitchen to reach my gatorade.  It's a reminder that laying bed all day is not what humans are meant for due the pains in my back.   It reminds me that I'm home, alone and can only on focus the moment.  I have to be patient or end up worse off than when things started.  I have to wait on God's timing to recover fully.  In a sense I'm totally dependent on His work in the healing process.   

See I hate being sick.  But I guess I can learn from it and that isn't such a bad thing afterall.

I don't really follow politics that much, though I try to stay aware of just what is going on around the country and around the world.  I don't belong to any political party, but I do tend to lean one way.  I find it difficult to support folks who favor killing the unborn, unfortunately many times the choices don't allow such a clear cut luxury.  However, what about a canidate who supports murdering the unborn and also supports killing the born, if they are born during a state sanctioned murder.  Wake up America, one of the four big Presidential canidates is such a person.  He is a man who in the past has supported measures that hinder the rights of the born human person if they were born during a state sanctioned execution.

Wake up America, the so called "golden boy" is very tarnished and not a man worthy of even being nominated for President, much less being President.

Congratulations to the New York Giants for a great victory over the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. It was a fantastic game and the Giants executed a great game plan to beat the previously undeafeated Patriots.

Pitchers and catchers report to Ft. Meyers in a few weeks and Lent begins on Wednesday. Yes folks, this Wednesday. Easter falls early this year.

I am prepared for ribbing in the office tomorrow, though I suspect Cowboy fans will understand the feeling of getting knocked off by the Giants.

That's all for now. Goodnight!
