Just saw a Far Side.

Working alone, Professor Dawson stumbles into a bad section of the petri dish.

The picture:
His hands are raised. The microscopic creature says "Now put the wallet on the counter."

I believe that freedom starts where people's basic needs are met. Where the quest for housing, food, utilities, and comfort aren't arduous journeys but rather recognized rights to human existence. This apparently makes me an extremist, but to me, makes me a humanitarian.

After months of setbacks and gridlock on voting rights, one of President Joe Biden’s top allies in Congress is calling for him to support amending the Senate filibuster.

House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) told POLITICO Biden “should endorse” the idea of creating a carveout to the legislative filibuster in the Senate for legislation that applies to the Constitution. In effect, the reform would make it possible for Democrats to pass their sweeping elections reform bill and another bill reauthorizing key sections of the 1965 Voting Rights Act with just Democratic support.

Normally, while I am at work writing a story I have at least a couple more in mind to start. Lately, none of my starts has panned out and I was left with nothing to write I was thinking. Then, I went to an anthology that carries one of mine and decided to revise it, because I love it, but it has always seemed it might be better. So I am nearly halfway into it and happily engaged once again.

@Mame,
I just came in from cleaning the house front. It was getting ugly out there. As soon as I make my juice I should be able to write.

Here is an exercise I have been doing. It's too soon to know if it makes a difference.

Been cutting, raking, etc. My daughter hired a crew to clean up my yard. They are coming every two weeks until it's done. So I've been working my butt off to make sure certain things get done and others left alone. Seems I always work hardest when I've got the most help.

@edgarblythe,
May I utter a word of caution if you feel or have been diagnosed as suffering from Glaucoma.

Applying pressure to eyes that are already under pressure is a recipe for disaster and further damage to the optic nerve.

First steps should be a full eye and pressure test and the use of prescription eye drops to reduce the pressure. Keep your eyes above your heart as much as possible, especially when sleeping.

Check your diet as just one cup of coffee can make the pressure go up by a significant amount for up to 90 minutes.

A 2015 study by the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) found that Baicalein significantly lowers eye pressure and may act as an all-natural treatment for glaucoma.

This was only tested on mice and I can find no update, but if you like cheese...

@Tryagain,
Thanks. It's not a significant problem. Just want to keep it that way. I recently renewed my driver's license and passed the eye test.
