Currently unemployed (possibly retired depending upon what the future brings), I am not to be confused with the guy who dispenses advice in Breakfast Smoothies. He is much more intelligent.
Too young for Medicare too old for anyone else to care; too rich for Medicaid, too poor to travel; I attempt gardening, hiking, biking, birding, canoeing, kayaking, and getting out of bed in the morning.
I don’t own a TV and have not watched regularly since 2006. (I also don’t own a dishwasher or a microwave.) And, I have not read a newspaper since about 2004.
I’ve lived in (from North to South) New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida; moved a lot.
My other website is a much more sophisticated and intellectual gardening site: www.emilycompost.com. (My original website is about compost. Now this. Could there be a pattern emerging?)
So far this is morphing into: Breakfast Smoothies (a fictionalized rant about the world) and a few other essays.
I am rewriting all of my Breakfast Smoothies as straight essays. So far:
Health Care (in the coming weeks):
Breast Cancer vs The Tornado – If it bleeds, it leads.
Breast Cancer Prevention – Prevention or Cure?
Breast Cancer Happiness – My take on “Pinkwashing”
(Im)Patient Registration – the most annoying part of the health care system?
Patient Names – who cares?
Health Insurance Bills – figure them out? (Next Week)
Nursing Home Noise – all quiet at the nursing home?
Remote Elder Care – Internet monitoring of nursing home.
I try to add an essay twice a week. We’ll see how it goes.
Another thing. I have a poetry site: Wretched Rhymes of young Whippersnappers. Visit anytime.
