Trump Macho Infection

Trump Macho Infection

Trump rises to power by tapping into the reptilian brain of humans. He is a con-man who recognizes a patsy when he sees one.

Trump pretends to be masculine in ways that remind me of Benito al when I was a child. Both behave with attitudes of entitlement, arrogance, selfishness, egocentricity, overbearing, pompous, and cruel. They believe in Social Darwinism…

Cary Part 5 Chicken stock

Finding foods that Cary likes that can be cooked to a mushy stage and put through a blender and seived has been harder to find than I thought it would be. Yesterday, I had success. I made chicken stock using a big package of *chicken wings, simmered it until it was reduced by half, used that stock to cook the tips of asparagus, sieved it and put it in a glass Mason jar, labelled it, put it in the refrigerator after offering it to Cary while it was hot. He rejected it with vigor! Sometime in…

Cary Part 4 Diagnosis confirmed

Another batch of tests today, more scheduled, and the diagnosis made. Various people conducting the treatment plan will do all they can to make him comfortable. Cancer starts in his esophagus, moved into the lymph glands and lungs. Surgery is out. It has not been decided yet if he will have chemo and radiation.

Options:  

beef, chicken, or fish stock;

mashed potatoes cooked in homemade…

Cary Part 2

I followed Cary around. First I worked at the boys' ranches after his release. The Community Colleges needed someone to teach at the prison, which I did after Cary left; I taught Life Skills to men who had been in prison for long periods and were about to return to the public life. They had to learn how to get a job, manage money, control anger, communication skills, problem-solving and conflict resolution skills. Many had wives and children "on the outside" and my task was to help them…

Cary Part 1

Cary, my son who was a real handful from the moment we picked him up from Deaconess Hospital in Spokane when the nurses put me in a wheelchair with Cary in my arms, and we went to the door. The nurse said all babies ride in the arms of their adopted mothers so no one can know the baby is adopted. We waited for six months for his birth. We didn't meet his birth mother; however, we knew she was just a kid, 17 or 18 years old. His birth father was an airman at Fairchild Airforce Base near…
