"Doctor doctor, will I die?"
"Yes my child... and so will I."
It's true for you and me too. Meanwhile, let's find some meaning for ourselves, enjoy the beauty and do things that won't leave a mess for our kids and their kids.

This and that...
I'm very pleased for my American cousins. You have a new health care plan for the nation. It doesn't measure up to any of your developed country friends' plans (universal coverage and a coordinated system), but it will cover millions without health care; it taxes the rich to help pay for it; and it will cover people more easily. Perhaps more importantly (to me at least), it shows that an Obama administration can make things happen - even in the face of Faux News, fear tactics, outright lies, communist-baiting propaganda...and Big Money. Go Barack!
That If this OK Go video doesn't make you smile, then you need to use your new health care system and get some sort of pills...
I live in Nelson BC Canada. I have one lovely Anna, two adult kids (in New York and Montreal), a small house in downtown Nelson, an interesting career as a consultant and lots of other interests, including working for human rights (through Amnesty International and Peace Brigades International mainly).
