In Home Care givers

The caring of elderly people at home is dependent upon having some help of various types so that they are not force into assisted living facilities.

Currently, while authorized 6 hours per week of this service, no care giver has surfaced that has those hours to spare in the Bayview/Athol area.

If anyone is interested in part time work like this, please contact me at or call 208-683-1294.

I will turn 80 next month, which brings up another point. An open house no host birthday party will be held at the Captain's Wheel, Saturday March 24 starting at 4 pm and ending ... Come on down.

Some Olympic Observations

Yesterday, a little 17 year old, Chloe Kim rode her snow board to a convincing victory in the half pipe.

Today we watched Shaun White do the same, winning a gold medal. Then he spoiled it all by dragging the American Flag on the ground, even stepping on it I've never seen an Olympic athlete from any country do that. For shame, Dude.

This weekend have watched a ton of ice skaters, both doubles and ice dancing. I'm 80 years old and not of most of your early standards. Having said that I'm about to shock you all with my observations about heterosexuality and skating, if you don't like it, then do not proceed past this point.

From what I have learned is we have one married couple and a brother sister act that skate together. The rest are apparently not compatible.

When I was raised, and into young adulthood, we referred to homosexuals as "Queers." They for whatever reasons belied their biological beings.

What brought this to my mind was ice skating the Olympics. With the intimacy of doubles and ice dancing, and the dazzling beauty of the ladies, how could the partners not have relationships with their significant other.

Then it dawned on me. Most male skaters are not heterosexuals. Perhaps this bothers me the most because he beauty of the ladies is going to waste.

In the last 20 years these guys were let our of the closet, religious groups insulted, to the point where now, perverts are being honored and given special privileges.

I. fortunately will not be present for the downfall of our culture, as old age will catch up with me. Still, is it wise to throw out 2000 plus years of evolution brought forth my a bunch of snot nose youth that doesn't know shit, has no plans for the future, nor even a clue as to the direction of our society???

Athol Super One

This morning's CDA Press revealed that the contractor that is building the Athol Super One has been placed in receivership and all projects have ceased.

While programed to open in Mid-March, this likely will be delayed. So close to being finished, it will still likely take some time to sort out the potential liens from sub-contractors that are sure to appear.

This could be a huge disappointment to we that usually do the 50 mile round trip to Hayden.

Anyone that has good info on this situation, please leave a comment.

Proposed Silica Mine

Silica is about the cleanest element in nature. Glass is made from it and it doesn't tend to be dusty. There is a lot of prejudice from the far left that doesn't want any mines of any kind and horrors if you cut down a tree. Keep an open mind and know that in these times, the environment is much safer than in the bad old days.

 From my research, Bayview will not be adversely affected, contrary to the propaganda being spewed on Facebook by well known leftist radicals. Other uses are in concrete. You see, Silica is just sand. .

Flu vs Vaccines

There is an on going debate about the safety of the various flu vaccines. One fact jumps out at us this week. Well, two. One this is a killer flu unknown in recent years. Not since the outbreak during WW 1, have so many died from the flu.

Secondly, no deaths at all have been attributed to the vaccine. So it's at least twenty deaths so far, compared to none from the prevention shots.

I have received a flu shot every year for the last 15 years. Whether connected or not, I have not only avoided the flu, but haven't had a cold during that period either.

Currently with the flu season only half over, over 2o deaths have occurred, mostly in young people. Just this morning a 10 year old died at a hockey tournament in Connecticut, so suddenly that he didn't feel sick before traveling.

This strain, actually two such strains have been active in every state except Hawaii. If you haven't been vaccinated yet, I urge you to but aside the rumors and false information. Protect yourself and family NOW!
