Lucky Friday the 13th

Good Luck
I'm not superstitious at all, and maybe even a little rebellious when it comes to Friday the 13th. I am determined to have good luck today.

No one knows for sure where the bad luck day originated. Here are a few of the legends.

There were 13 steps to the guillotine.

There were 13 people at the Lord's Last Supper (Judas being number 13).

Jesus was killed on a Friday (some say Friday the 13th).


Whatever the reason, until recent years, hotels have renamed the 13th floor either by skipping the number altogether or by using the 13th floor for something other than hotel guests. Other large buildings have done the same.

Considering the bad luck weather the world has had recently, today is just another day and couldn't be any worse than what has just transpired, especially this past week in the US where the weather has claimed lives.

There have been floods from Missouri to Wisconsin, California and North Carolina fires, and snow in Washington state.

More than 50 tornadoes were reported on Wednesday across Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota, some accompanied by baseball-sized hail.

The heat wave from Georgia to New York which has also caused death.

Hopefully today will pass quietly with no extreme weather.

Happy Friday the 13th!

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

Each state should also provide information. The link for South Carolina is SCDHEC.gov/, which provides useful information on symptoms, transmission and prevention.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.




How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
