Teh Squeaky Wheel
Happy Friday, Wheelizens!
Nice one, Mac!
Nah…these people aren’t a problem:
Maybe this go-round, John Effin’ Kerry can take the Grateful Dead to France to perform “Truckin'”. Or the Beach Boys to sing “Wouldn’t It Be Nice”. 👿
I’ve got it…Yusuf Islam to perform “Wild World” and “Peace Train”; that’s teh ticket!
“Friday’s getting hotter”
Hi Fatwa. Good morning GN!
Killer in France is named Mohamed Lahouaiej. That’s an odd name for a Presbyterian.
Perhaps a duet with Yusuf and Taylor! That will calm everyone down and bring a new resolve to the scene.
While I was driving GoodWifeK to pick up her car, heard on the news that Monsieur LeTruckeur was named Mohammed. I was shocked, shocked to find that jihad is going on in France!
Happy Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
I’m sure Mohammed LaWhoever was just a lone wolf, in spite of the rumors I’ve heard of a second suspect. I’m sure all of those weapons he carried in the truck were just to help celebrate Bastille Day.
Mo les Morte was only using his cultural norms to help the French celebrate…because multiculturalism; yay!!
WTF is it with politicians?!?
Government Considers First Pokemon Go Regulations:
Brooklyn Democrat Felix Ortiz, who is well known for curbing New Yorker’s fun (he’s led crusades against sugar, alcohol, and strip clubs), says that Nintendo has a “corporate responsibility” to make sure that its customers don’t make terrible decisions.
No they don’t, dipshit.
Do you mean lying, mendacious, venal scum?
Yes, yes I did.
Jury duty Monday. Going to be interesting. On the seventh my doctor started me on another medicine for the diabetes. It has been very effective in further dropping my blood sugar but now the blood sugar tends to crash in the afternoon. Normal level is 80 to 120 and I tended to be at or above the high end of that, but he warned me to watch for it to drop too low. He said 65 called for urgent action to get it up or I could pass out. I have not hit that but I did hit 70 to 73 on three occasions this week so I am concerned about next week, especially as I will be taking the morning meds much earlier than normal and will be active and stressed, both of which lower the blood sugar level rather quickly for me at this point. I was planning to take fruit bars and apple juice along with peanuts in my truck to eat at lunch but I am thinking maybe I should skip one or both pills I take until evening while this is going on. A high level is less likely to cause a crisis than a level too low. At the low 70s I have the shakes and get light headed so I don’t want that happening in there.
I will be glad when this is over. I have to check after five to see if I report Monday. Pfffttt!
Jeebus, Mac; perhaps you should talk to your Doc today?
Hope your after-5:00 call will result in your not having to deal with the whole mess. (Are you going to have to check-in every evening for a week to see if you’re needed? That’s what they do here.)
I think that is how it works here as well. I will need to check each day. I could get this put off but I want it over so I don’t have to deal with this again for a while. The medical issues are not going away. Last week really took me down so this week I have been trying all week to adjust my schedule and try to stay up all day. It has been hard and I have been sore and exhausted most of the time. After this I can get back to my routines. The heart doctor had moved up the stress test because I was still having chest pains and that has been rather worse since last week. Will be glad to get that sorted out so at least I know what I am dealing with in terms of partial blockages, though I will not be doing anything about them this year. At least I can work around the problem if needed. Glad I am retired!
Know that you -- and Elena -- are in our thoughts and hearts here at CasaK, Mac.
To better days!
Some of the eyewitness accounts of Nice are chilling.
(No quotes, because…)
And: France ‘Suppressed Reports of Gruesome Torture’ at Bataclan Massacre.
(IMHO worse than the previous link. Plus bonus cowardly rat-bastard French prosecutor.)
Damn! Just. Damn!
Appears there’s a military coup underway in Turkey.
At first glance, this looks to be a good thing.
Live footage of Turkey coup:
“urgent action to get it up” No, won’t go there.
I’m glad, Mac, that you are taking the stress test. I know how difficult this has been, but do what you have to do. Prayers, friend.
Little Jack Tatum has been around for breakfast and dinner today. I can tell he’s getting more comfortable around us cuz he’s doing that aloof-ignore thing that cats are so good at.
Well, I guess the French and the Germans were both right to withhold those details, otherwise the huge backlash against the peaceful Muslims would have been a lot worse than it was.
You know, I have absolutely no idea what Pokemon Go is.
I think it is kind of like a cat chasing a laser dot, but virtual.
““urgent action to get it up” No, won’t go there.”
What can I say, I am taking blood pressure meds.
