Make Up Your Mind, Part Deux . . .

You may have noticed some new ads on our blog, ones for iDrive, Godaddy, AVG Virus Protection, and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. All of these are products that I use and recommend, so if you need one or more of these services, check out our ads.

After another nice, quiet morning, Jan and I headed out about 3pm for an afternoon of fun and folic. As we were leaving the rig, the service manager came by to let us know that it looked like everything was on schedule for Monday morning to take our rig into the shop to finish our repairs. So hopefully we will be on our way by the end of next week. Maybe.

Our first stop was the Sears at Gateway Mall to pick up a new tool kit. I saw an ad that Sears has a $99 42 pc. 3/8” and 1/4” driver set on sale for $30, so I thought I’d get my Father’s Day present a few days early.

I’ve got several different sets of drivers scattered over several sets of tools, but this will consolidate them all in one set.

Our next stop was the Harbor Freight Tools at the other end of the mall, I was looking for buffer wheel kit for my drill motor. I want something that I can use to buff up my aluminum wheels and get them shiny again, and they had just what I wanted. Along with a couple of other things, too.

Our last stop was the Golden Corral right down the road. The food was good, but unlike our previous visits, as they got busy, they fell behind on getting food out on the buffet. So things I wanted seconds on, like the Tempura-Battered Fish, Mandarin Orange Pork, and Corn on the Cob, weren’t available.

Or maybe they were just trying to tell me something.

Remember when you were a kid, and you were told that eating too much sugar would cause tooth decay? Then a while back they discovered that tooth decay is actually caused by the bacteria Streptococcus mutans. If you don’t have colonies of S mutans in your mouth, the amount of sugar you consume doesn’t really matter.

The S mutans bacteria is passed on to babies by the mother. So if the mother doesn’t have it, then the baby probably won’t either. This explains why some people just don’t get any cavities, ever.

Remember when they told us that people got stomach ulcers from too much stress, and/or eating too much spicy food? Well, then they discovered that stomach ulcers are actually caused by Helicobacter pylori bacteria. So now a treatment of antibiotics will usually take care of your ulcer.

Now we’re told that it’s very possible that Type II diabetes may very well also be caused by a bacteria, and not really from obesity. This time the culprit is Staphylococcus Aureus.

By exposing rabbits to S aureus for a long period of time, the rabbits appear to develop all the symptoms of Type II diabetes. This explains some skinny people get Type II also. You can read more about this at the link above.

Makes you wonder what they’re going to find out that they don’t know next.


Thought for the Day:

Somewhere, someone out there is doing something without permission. They must be stopped.
