Now Look What We're In

Been some jabber about our national debt of 21 TRILLION. Not sure what that is for every human here that lives in United States.
Top five countries with debt is Greece, Jamaica, Lebanon, St Kitts and Nevis, and also Japan. And there is five other one LISTED
Now for lowest debt would be Botswana, Saudi Arabia, Estonia, Bruin and Hong Kong. For the other five LISTED
Not sure how our state of Idaho fares when comes to debt.

I been thinking of voting early. Thinking of going and hopeful get down to Oregon. We only have two ballot initiative we will be voting on.
Horse racing and gambling. I was pretty much fence on that one. I'm not pro or anti gambling. What pushing me no on this one is....when the ad says " net gross profit goes to school" well that could be any amount or percentage.
Then the other one is to expand medicaid in Idaho. As many of my reader know I'm for one payer medical. And medicare for all would be fine. I  believe everyone should contribute to a socialize medical system.
So I'm  voting yes for expand medicaid.
I have never vote a straight ticket but I'm leaning "Blue" vote for most of the democrat candidates. I will vote for two "Red" candidates.
Now this is how I see our state going. Sorry liberals I know your not going to like to hear what I'm about to say.
Idaho will stay one strong red state. Those possible in Boise area might lighten the red up a bit.
But not to lean to the left of even balance things out.
Now for the the measurement. The gambling one will pass and medical one won't. Socialism ideal is pretty much frown on this state.
IDAHO AND HOW WE STACK UP
As for bigger picture or the entire United States. They will be wave of blue pushing forward. I just won't go far enough and say "The blue will control both houses."

Had Some Thoughts They Were Zap

As I was briefly cruising though my regular pages I take part in, before I headed out door to work. I had a few ideals what I could possible blog about.
Now there nothing up stairs. I know there a little up there. I wouldn't be posting about nothing. But sometime thing like that.

I hit the 202 (91) and my end of the year goal was to be at 200 (90) or below.

Murphy is showing a lot of improvement, those shingle took him for a zap. Still not recovering. They want him to see a neurologist but he decided to cancel his appointment. He is doing so much better but I think it was a stupid ideal on his part.
He self medicaid him self with marijuana. See he person that can't stop thinking.
When I was young I smoke marijuana on fairly regular bases. Now of years the effect of it has changed.
Now my brain quites down and I get a paranoid feeling. No fun!

Confession...I like marijuana in baked goods. I get zip a dee doo dah day. But I sure still wouldn't want to do it on a regular bases. For what every reason I like keeping my wits about me. Only did the once lost complete control of my thought process. And that was enough for me.
 Not trying to be to critical I've mass trouble with alchol or powders.
My last client Donna she would make even a strong saint "drink to intoxication" so one would pass out and get up the next morning and go to work.
I'm so thankful I have Regis and Liz for clients.

Looking back my dad I believe now had some type of bi polar, and he medicated him self with alchol. A functioning alcholic.

He held down a good job. Drop out of high school his freshman year and got on railroad in Michigan. Then for a brief time he mange a diary, went back working on railroad. Stayed there until he retired in his 60's
Bills were paid, never worried about not having shelter, clothing, or food.
But emotional and mental support was a total different story.
Got start on rail on right side of the porch. Bart is planning to come up and help us on a few projects that needs to be done for the snow fly.

Maybe I should keep a list of things I want to blog about. I do have BULLET JOURNAL and I got put it in that.

Well For First Around

I believe blogging is my first favor thing to do with social media. I couldn't give honest opinion on my other social media I do...which one would place second, third and fourth place. But here my TWITTER PAGE  my VLOG (YOU TUBE CHANNEL, and INSTAGRAM. But my lease favor Social Media is FACE BOOK, Confession time...I have other facebook pages I start up and hardly visit....I wonder why I spend so much time on facebook. 
I give facebook 5th place or last place.

Then act two or something like that was going to happen. My son Bart was going come up and help us with a few project around the place.
Well he call and wasn't feeling well. His guess he ate some bad food, and he off to work tomorrow. So he said he would be up next weekend.
Confession time...It been well over a year since he had a tumor removed from his brain, all is fine. But I still worry about it.

The items I was hoping to do was to make our side deck safe, put a new kitchen faucet in, and haul the trash.
Murphy and I got the trash hauled.

I just balance out the check book and wrote a check for My health insurance. I've heard both side of AFFORDABLE CARE ACT or Obama care. Actual it been a blessing for our family.
But I did post a poll. Not sure how to do a poll on facebook...Question time...Would you be willing to pay one to three percent of your income for health care for all? Well 21 people vote yes and no one vote no. And one interesting comment. "The average health care cost per person per year is $10,000, how much of your income is that?

Well I donate to help someone start a small business adventure in Medford, THAI TRUCK and the other one was my friend Peggy daughter was doing a fundraiser for our local SHELTER.

I got a few items for Yule. I usual try to get my items from mom and pop types of store. Yesterday I bought some items off of esty for my fur grand pets Yule gifts.

I don't need to be stop because plan A didn't work out. Dishes can be put away, floors can be clean, and I'm positive I can find more to be done around the place.

Well I was hoping to go over and run my ideal by our high priestess for some up coming pagan ideal I have. But she off to one of her grand children birthday party, and I will just play it by ear.

Tomorrow Regis is getting his NERVE STIMULATOR He and I are both excited. His pain level should be less.

Uncle Vern

Vern Brunson McCalmant (92) Vern went home to his Lord on October 3rd 2018.  A graveside service at Grandview Cemetery will be held Saturday Oct. 13th, at 11:00 a.m. followed by a luncheon and fellowship at Grace Bible Fellowship.

In a snow storm on his birthday, Nov. 30th 1937, 12 year old Vern McCalmant moved to what is now Pleasant Valley where he began his long career in the lumber industry.  Throughout high school, he continued sawing and selling cord wood with a buck saw to help support his family.

Upon graduating from Bonners Ferry High in 1944, Vern was called to service in the U.S. Army. After basic training at Camp Roberts, CA, he was shipped over seas where he was wounded on Okinawa. While on recuperative leave home, he proposed to Marjorie his wife of almost 72 years.  After marriage and two boys, Vern was recalled to active service for the war in Korea.

When released from service, he returned to his occupation sawing logs with a crosscut saw. Later, Vern and his brother Glen bought one of the first Chain saws in Boundary County.  This led to his eventual occupation as a logging contractor from which he retired in 1990.

Vern’s love of the outdoors was transferred to his children and led to years of hunting and fishing with his pride and joy, his sons Doyle, XXX, XXX, and Patrick, two boys, XXX and XXX, who made their home with the McCalmant family, grand children,  great grand children, and great-great grand children.
He is survived by his wife XXX, son XXX and wife XXX, son XXX, 7 grand children, 17 great grand children and 2 great-great grandchildren two sisters XXX and XXX  and brother XXX.


He was preceded in death by his parents, 7 siblings, son Doyle and son Patrick. He is survived by his wife XXX, son XXX and wife XXX, son XXX, 7 grand children, 17 great grand children and 2 great-great grandchildren. 

Editor note...Uncle Vern was born in Minatare Nebraska, and year he retire I believe is not correct.

Want To Need To

Sure I bought some canvas boards out of Walmart. But recently I been drawing my tarot cards and I want and or need to have a change up a little.
So I had an ideal of a painting.
I know I picked some up at Walmart and now I'm second guessing my self that I might of change my mind.
But if I recall when I looked at canvas that my client and I could each do a painting.

But many of you know at the first of each month, from the previous month I'm in need to know my inter self, so I take part in PERSONALITY INSIGHT but I wonder if there one for art or not.

Usual hubby is an excellent house hubby, but this shingle has taken him for a loop. So I been working and maintain things around the place.
But the little extra aren't getting done.

Well this afternoon Murphy went to eye doctor and looks like there no sign of shingles in his eyes. Now the 23rd he will be seeing the neurologist.
Sunday Bart will be coming up from Spokane, he and I will be working on our side deck and make it safe for people to use this winter.

Tomorrow is a busy day and little bit each day.
Coffee with my friend Qunella at Under the Sun. Regis bought a new well new to him chair, and I will use the pick up to bring it to him.
Not sure how I will load and un load it. But I'm sure something will be figured out.
Them Friday I'm going to Spokane for the day, and possible visit all of my grand daughters. Betty Sawyer wife call and found out she in Spokane until sometime I believe is Saturday.
Then for my self I will be going to my Uncle grave side service, and maybe stop by one of my pagan friend and run by some ideals I have for a group.
Then Bart on Sunday.

I did had slight gain in my weight lost. But still under 205 and working on my next little bit of weight to loose.
