      I get my blood tested at least twice a year. It’s always uncomfortable waiting to get it.

      By the way, my mother decided she's finally had enough of Maddog's crap, so she and I discussed a plan to get Sophia and us out of here and somewhere... Better than this.

    It’s May 13th, the feast of Our Lady of Fatima! The Marian Apparition that brought me back to the Faith. Thank you dear Blessed Mother!

      Ironically, today is also Eid al-Fitr for Muslims, the end of Ramadan. Muslims use lunar calendars, so it changes every year. Sacramento has a large Muslim community and there are traffic jams at all the mosques. Two religions, two feasts, same day, just by coincidence.

      On top all that, it’s also the feast of Our Lord’s Ascension into Heaven albeit, this feast is often celebrated on Sundays.

    I know it’s not a good idea to bring up WP, but I’m growing potatoes and just came up with this: WP is as neurotoxic as a sprouting potato!

      I think I agree. Those potatoes can be rough too--had a garden going with them in it once & it killed a couple of chickens.

      Potatoes are the easiest crop to grow! Cut the eyes off of some old potatoes from the store. Each potato eye will become a potato. Get a big bucket and drill holes in the bottom. Alternate layers of soil and potato eyes.

      In six months or so, all the potatoes should be ready (once the greens die back). You simply flip over the bucket and dump out the soil and potatoes. Pick out the big ones, and put the tiny ones back in the bucket with the soil, and some new potato eyes, and repeat the process.

    My manager sighed loudly and told me that I can't keep making these mistakes. And yet, they happen every day, in every job and since school

    I hate to complain but, I’m a bit ticked-off with things here right now, with my parents. I can’t wait until I’m on my own as an adult.

    May I ask you how practicable is it for someone in their 50s to get a diagnosis in Ireland?

      Hi Kevin, It's doable but it may take time. It depends if you're doing it privately or publicly. I'll attach a video link here to a webinar on diagnosis in later life. There are lots of great resources out there! :-) https://youtu.be/LejDV3jNC4o
