Rain ~ Election ~ Berta ~ Monday Night Football ~ Boater Bruiser ~ Loaner Car ~ Melatonin ~ Vote!

Good 49ยบ cloudy drizzling morning.

Don't think the rain last night was measurable, but everything is wet and the smoke has ceased on the burn pile!
Some radar over us...

Those weather people never get it right. Here's the predictions for this week through next...
Praying for good election results today!

Today a very special birthday... my long time pal Berta (Sommer) Long (now she goes by..Bobbe). . HEY GIRLFRIEND, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
We became friends back in about 1965 when George and I lived in an apartment at 908 S. Margarita Avenue in Alhambra. I recall looking out the window facing the parking lot and here was a very pregnant woman cleaning out a black 1957 Chevy Nomad! I though her husband must be a monster to make a pregnant woman do that! Later, of course, I learned that when you are pg, you have tons of energy and do stuff like that! LOL. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BERTA♥ !!!!

Remember this place Berta...... found this on Google Maps!
Football last night...

I had to go into Grants Pass yesterday and before I left, here was Bruiser in the boat! It has a lot of water in the bottom and he likes to drink it! We (Brian and Dan) brought it down from the pond for a guy to come look at, but he was not interested. It now needs to be turned back upside down so it's not filling up with rain! Can't do it by myself! 

Then he decided to climb a tree! Nut!

First to the car dealership for some work on my ride...

My car will be done they gave me a free loaner...
It's a Buick Encore. Nice, but I sure miss my big old truck!!!!!
 Then off to the health food store... The clerk was really nice. I had on a black hoodie with USMC on the front and he asked if my grandson was a Marine. HUH???? Sigh... old is old. I told him, no, I married a Marine and gave birth to one! HE congratulated me and said his grandfather and father were both Marines! Cool.

A couple friends told me about getting the melatonin pill.
I tend to wake in the middle of the night and stay awake for 2-3 hours. This might do the trick and get me back to sleep. We'll see. I will let you know.

Melatonin is a hormone found naturally in the body. Melatonin used as medicine is usually made synthetically in a laboratory. It is most commonly available in pill form, but melatonin is also available in forms that can be placed in the cheek or under the tongue. This allows the melatonin to be absorbed directly into the body.

People use melatonin to adjust the body’s internal clock. It is used for jet lag, for adjusting sleep-wake cycles in people whose daily work schedule changes (shift-work disorder), and for helping blind people establish a day and night cycle.

Melatonin is also used for the inability to fall asleep (insomnia); delayed sleep phase syndrome (DSPS); insomnia associated with attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD); insomnia due to certain high blood pressure medications called beta-blockers; and sleep problems in children with developmental disorders including autism, cerebral palsy, and intellectual disabilities. It is also used as a sleep aid after discontinuing the use of benzodiazepine drugs and to reduce the side effects of stopping smoking.

Some people use melatonin for Alzheimer’s disease, ringing in the ears, depressionchronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgiamigraine and other headachesirritable bowel syndrome (IBS), bone loss (osteoporosis), a movement disorder called tardive dyskinesia(TD), epilepsy, as an anti-aging agent, for menopause, and for birth control.

Other uses include breast cancerbrain cancerlung cancerprostate cancer, head cancer, neck cancer, and gastrointestinal cancer. Melatonin is also used for some of the side effects of cancer treatment (chemotherapy) including weight lossnerve pain, weakness, and a lowered number of clot-forming cells (thrombocytopenia).

It is also used to calm people before they are given anesthesia for surgery.

The forms of melatonin that can be absorbed through the cheek or under the tongue are used for insomnia, shift-work disorder, and to calm people before receiving anesthesia for surgery.

Sometimes people apply melatonin to the skin to protect against sunburn.

How does it work?

Melatonin’s main job in the body is to regulate night and day cycles or sleep-wake cycles. Darkness causes the body to produce more melatonin, which signals the body to prepare for sleep. Light decreases melatonin production and signals the body to prepare for being awake. Some people who have trouble sleeping have low levels of melatonin. It is thought that adding melatonin from supplements might help them sleep.
Then off to Safeway for fresh veggies, cat food, dog treats, wine, and some 'extras' for some crazy recipe I may come up with!

Dinner was reruns while I watched the Colts/Giants....
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.

November 4th
General Election Day 
                                                    for Dennis!!!!! AND Walden and Dotterrer and Monica Wheby!!!!!! 

The General Election is always the first Tuesday in November
It's a revolution... a peaceful one, where majority rules!!
Once every four years, we get the opportunity to elect a new president. Every six years, we elect our U.S. senators. U.S. congressman are elected every two years. This peaceful revolution, allows us to retain good elected officials, and overturn those whose performance is poor, or whose beliefs do not match the majority. While Democracy may not be perfect, it's better than any other type of government on the planet. And, it offers us freedoms and safeguards that do not exist in many other countries.
Our founding fathers had the wisdom to create a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. It is every American's right and privilege, to vote for our government officials. So, we hope you exercise your right on this day, to vote for the candidate of your choice.
While apathy and discontent can creep into even the best of societies, we believe that makes it more important for us TO VOTE.
Please exercise your inalienable right and go out and vote!
