About Me

My photo

Did Socrates say "Know Thyself", or was he misunderstood, as all are. Show Thyself is all we can do. The knowing is unknowable.  

I am filled with joy.  It can't be helped.  

Became a Farmer, Builder, Musician, Tank Commander, Librarian, Lawyer and Minister. I have failed at many things. And now retired.  Filled, just filled, with Joy.

Billions of dollars are spent every year in the USA alone on over-the-counter cough syrups. Apparently, this cost is the result of false advertising. Most cough syrups do little if anything to relieve coughs, according to the chest physicians conducting studies quoted in the Monterey County Herald, picked up by FOX News - Scripps Howard News Service - Reuters.uk - Consumer Affairs.
