Bob and I have been watching the mini-series show about John Adams. I am so slow about watching movies and things sometimes. I don't remember when this came out, but I heard it was really good. I saw it at the library and rented it. We still have one more DVD to watch...but I already have an opinion I wanted to share here. I think this is a really really good series.....but when I googled it I saw on Wiki that there was a long list of Historical inaccuracies. I can not figure out why they would put so much into making the film and then not show things as they really happened. Or how it was recorded in history. Some seem to be minor, but I would still like to ask whomever made the decision to alter historical facts...why they did it.
I have to tell you that I am really sick of all of the negative campaign ads. I cannot wait for election day. I don't know about where you live...but where I live....the campaign ads would tend to make a person NOT want to vote at all. One person says awful things about one and the other one tries to top it and on and on and on. I wonder if little kids watching these ads.. think that if you want to go into a government line of work....you had better start digging up some dirt on your opponent and then raise money to pay for the mud slinging piece of crap to try and get yourself a job in that office. When you think about it....does any of that make any sense? I know our country was just getting started during John Adams time....but...I don't think he ran for office. The people just decided they wanted him. I know....it is hard to compare those days with our days....but still....it does make me wonder.
Just another little reflection for the day. I was wondering when someone awakens you from REM sleep....does it cause brain damage. That happened to me this morning and I had the weirdest feeling as I was trying to fully wake up. I thought I had brain damage....with my loss of brain cells rapidly leaving....it wouldn't take much to get there. I know I don't have many left because I have been going to a Bible Study once a week. We are studying Joshua. Very difficult to comprehend all of this. I should have been writing about it on my faith blog. Maybe I could have made better sense of it there. Oh well...enough words for this day.......

I have the worst sore throat EVER. I have been staying at home and feeling lousy for the past few days. Today we decided to get out for awhile and take a fall drive. Bob has already been exposed to my germs, so I felt like it was okay to do this. I am one of those people that thinks if you are sick...stay home and keep your cooties away from others...until you are well. I really don't know what the rules of illnesses are any more though. For schools..they say as long as the child does not have a fever, you can send them. Not everyone that is sick gets a fever though. For instance, my normal temperature is 96.3....so if it is 99...I am thinking I have a fever. According to flu.gov here are the symptoms:
Flu symptoms include:
- A 100oF or higher fever or feeling feverish (not everyone with the flu has a fever)
- A cough and/or sore throat
- A runny or stuffy nose
- Headaches and/or body aches
- Nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea (most common in children)
I have a Dr. appointment tomorrow and I wonder if I should call and tell them I am sick. I had laser surgery again last week because when I went in for my final check after the eye surgery in September, he saw a fogginess on the eye, lens, whatever I have. He lasered it out last week. Tomorrow would be a one week check. I think he could wait one more week to look at it...but I will call and let them decide.
Well...all of this talking has worn me down. Off to watch the baseball game and hope we get a win.
