Just ranting

I am in need of a time for ranting! As I see the news, I am disturbed about what people see as important.  In one article a family is crying about the late delivery of things they ordered for gifts, boohoo, on tv crying and getting publicity.  The next article was about a family's home being destroyed by fire and no insurance, now that is something to cry about.  The very next report was about a reality tv show; the people on the show wanted to say anything they wanted without any thought of the net work who is paying them, a whole lot of threats to the network from the public; anyone with any extra time to do such things, need to "get a life" and seek out what is really important and it is not "Reality TV".  
Really thoughtful people will think of what they can do and say that  will make a positive impact on the life of someone. Part of the problem is the media, part is that people love their 15 minutes of fame and the worst part of it is that a large part of our population is so self centered and care only for themselves.
I was encouraged when I saw the CNN Heros  and also see what is being done in the Clinton Global initiative and wish I could meet and visit with those people.

Fun with my imagination

Because of the snow and ice, I need to explore my imagination and it came to me when I took my shower that, since I will not be near a human being, why should I shower and my mind wondered.  I must admit that I feel a bit refreshed after the hot shower using my structured water but....
When did Eve say to Adam, "no more sex unless you take a shower". or Adam say, "I can't kiss you unless you brush and floss".  When did our ancestors start this cleanliness business?  I know that my grandpa never brushed or flossed excepting with a twig from the peach tree.  He died at a very old age and still had every tooth and no cavities, so does it make sense for us to spend so much time doing the unnatural processes such as brushing, flossing, shampooing etc... We are always told that it is healthy, but is it?  I don't see any real research telling me that if I did not shampoo, I would loose 20 years of my life. Eve probably told Adam that she would shampoo when she found a nice hot springs.  Have you figured out how many productive hours you loose just by shampooing, flossing, brushing, etc.?
As you see, I really have a problem with being house bound for a week.  I have been learning via computer and my Kindle and have been listening to all of Dr. Mercola's Expert Interviews on www.youtube.com.  I am a close friend of www.amazon.com, www.youtube.com, Google and of course my 14 four legged, furry children.
I have also been contacting experts about being a speaker at the Holistic Wellness Conference.  Did you know that a nationally known wellness expert will charge $10,000 a day!!! I should have become an expert in something, instead of being a one thing expert, I know a lot about a lot of stuff but would not consider myself an expert.  However, I could tell you exactly what each of these experts would say at the conference.  I read a lot and listen a lot and research a lot......At the age of 79, I have had lots of time to read, listen and learn. I, of course, would have had a lot more time if I had not wasted it, bathing, shampooing, flossing and brushing.
