What Wyrd, Say the Norns!

Hello All,

With so much adversity to write of, I have decided to keep today’s post light. (Um, I think!) Many thoughts of posting topics have crossed my mind these past days. And, I know that I have not remained devoted to some readers; however, I continue to thank you for your patience and encouragements.

Without the wurdis knowledge as “The Piper’s Weird”, I find myself progressing an uncanny future. A journey into the city of Avalon, the opportunity to meet the Sister’s Weird, Luna, Phoebe, and Selene; for only, the daughters of Oberon could offer up such fate, and/or destiny, as I have before me. For the World Tree, Yggdrasil, I shall refrain the search, and know, I have witnessed the prophecies to Macbeth, as the “Thane of Glamis”, “Thane of Cawdor”, and “King Hereafter” so say the “Norns”. Some say the wyrd, or fateful, illness of a past, would realize a broadening future.

It is the journey from beginning to end, holding each emotion as a “diamond of investment”, without the present recognition of it's true value. These Diamonds of the journey are the subjects of which novels relate. Romance is only, but an “emotion (Diamond) within the experience.” How can we not value the good without the pain? As each diamond begins uncut, so it is polished into brilliance on conclusion.

So, it appears, I will take “The Fate of the Piper” on any day.

Hello All,

I would like to preface with an apology. I have not written anything for some time and wish to apologize to my regular readers and visitors for my complacency.

It appears that I have had a minor relapse with my legs and I am once again back on the crutches; as this was a compromise, the doc’s wanted me to take a wheel chair. The Doctors were forced to drain some joints- there is a medical term for this procedure; however, the exact name escapes my memory at this moment. Additional to the 60+ cc of fluid (which they did not recover all) and one of my legs is more than twice the size of the other, they have also decided that I should be placed on “Quarters” and remain in bed. “Quarters”, for the layman explanation, is when a military member must be accounted for and remain in their room. I did manage to convince them to reduce the time for which I would be “laid up”; unfortunately, it was not simply laid. The later part was for a couple of individual’s humor, so if you at least smiled- that may have been added for your benefit.
My home life is becoming more serious, to the point that even my optimism is strained. Add to these previous, my medical board meets some time prior to the end of this month with a new decision to release.

In short, if not too late, I have some stress; I have little opportunity to sit and write; and, finally, thanks to the doctors- I have a new lifetime subscription to pain meds. Yes, I intended to write subscription, as this stuff arrives monthly. In addition, it’s not the cheap shit either! I wonder if I endured the pain and swelling and stock piled the drugs for future sales- would this be considered my retirement fund. Too bad my integrity will not allow this thought to grow any further from the depths of my drug induced, mentally challenged, comfortably numb, state- of California. Wait! I meant to say- I have and hold integrity and would never consider such thoughts into realization.

This may, or may not, be short. It is an attempt, however, to continue with information outflow.

Good luck all,

Bread, Confusion and just general Tom Foolery

Hello All,

I am sitting here watching the people outside of my office window, as they peer inside at some form of entertainment. I look back to the computer and, like a shot, I travel through some time warp to a London hospital proposed for the deprived, suffering, and homeless; its name, Bethlehem, in Hebrew, the “House of Bread.” In 1405, a report of the Royal Commission, stated of the lunatics confined there as it began to be used partly as an asylum for the insane. The name Bethlehem became shortened to Bedlam in popular speech, and the confinement of lunatics there gave rise to the use of this word to mean a “House of Confusion.”
"I understand this!"
Bedlam, founded in 1247 as a priory in Bishopsgate Street, for the order of St. Mary of Bethlehem, by Simon Fitz Mary, an Alderman and Sheriff of London. Early in the 16 century, the word Bedlam was used by Tyndale to mean a madman.
The stance of succeeding generations of Englishmen toward the insane is traced interestingly at Bedlam. An old English word, “a Bedlam” signifies one released and licensed to beg and was known as Bedlamers, Bedlamites, or Bedlam Beggars. In the 17 century, it became the custom for the lower classes to visit Bedlam and observe the antics of the insane patients as a novel form of amusement. The audience’s favorite “performers” were often nicknamed Tom Fool, which popular nickname came to be applied to the antics of the asylum residents, and then its meaning was softened to mean “silly behavior” in general.

In the 1930's, Hollywood California picked up on this information. The rest is in typical Hollywood Horror History.
With many daily achievements behind me, I find the time to enter this portal. Productivity? I have done this, so,
"What's this Tom Foolery?"

"There is no Tom Foolery, only some Tim Bloggery- going on here!"

I could not think of another topic for the day; therefore, we had a little lesson in Etymology.

If I were a,

The following is intended for mature audiences.
Warning, Adult humor!
Warning, No humor!
Shit, I give up.

From the fantasy pages of: “If I were a Reporter, in today’s standards of searching for distribution, my insignificant news would be”. In a true Dan Blocker illusionary disclaimer, none of the succeeding is true.

In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic name. For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Advil is called Ibuprofen and Amoxil is called Amoxicillin.
The FDA has been looking for a generic name for the drug, Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxichillin.
Also considered were Mycoxafloppin, Mydixadrupin, Dixafix, and of course, Nobewond Nobepokin.
Phizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by a major Cola manufacturer (to be determined) as a power beverage suitable for use as a churn. It will now be possible for a man to literally pour and have himself a stiff one.

Obviously we can no longer call this a “soft drink,” and it gives a new meaning to the names of certain “Cocktails”, “Highballs”, and just a good old-fashioned “Stiff drink.” One company is considering entering this market with their new beverage and will market the new concoction by the name of “Mount an Do.” It appears they will be able to utilize the commercials of a similarly in named product.

Editor’s note: There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer’s research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky breasts and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.
