A month or so ago I complained about the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, and their determination that the Sig Arm Brace for AR pistols is fine and dandy, as long as no one holds it in an Unauthorized Manner. Shooting with the gun held out so you can’t hit much with it is fine, but holding it to your shoulder, which offers stability and accuracy, is a Bad Thing.

No progress has been made this past week in righting the wrongs of the phone company. I took a sabbatical and enjoyed life in the slow lane. Everyone needs time off and with no agenda. Like being in your PJ’s all day. Watching “Chick Flicks” on TV, that is if you can find a good one.

It seems as though this last week of February is a real return to winter. The temperatures are way down again and there is a chance of sleet or snow. School is out for the day, and we just learned that the truck load of new trash cans we expected for delivery today will be delayed until the roads clear up.

ARTHRITIS affects one in 7 people in America. Glucosamine, chondroitins and MSM are the most common natural remedies used to manage pain and to supply building materials for joint repair. While these are very helpful, particularly with osteoarthritis, I would like to mention some other natural remedies for arthritis. DIET is one of the best and cheapest remedies.

My fiancée and my soon-to-be stepdaughter just got over a bout with the flu recently. They had both been at my house while they were sick, but thankfully Brooke and I avoided getting it. I think a lot of it had to do with the mad disinfecting I did when they left, and all the handwashing we did while they were here.
