I started the next-higher dose of thyroid and took it for two weeks and it didn't stop the shortness of breath or sweat, so my theory is wrong.
There were accidents with parts of the road blocked off on the way to the bookgroup and the way home -- probably the rain -- but both were on 25mph streets and people must have been going faster.
Saturday night Loki was curled up between my legs in the recliner and Spirit was tucked in with him, with her tail around his neck. They were very cute!
I've always admired Sheila Johnson, ex-wife of Robert Johnson, who started BET with her husband. When she got divorced and her share of the company, she wanted to build a resort/spa out in Middleburg and has never quite managed to do that. But I still thought she was admirable. She's a Democrat and is voting for the Republican candidate for governer, and doing ads for him, but recently, on camera, she made fun of the Democratic candidate's stammering. It's not that noticeable for me, my brother used to stutter all the time, but apparently she thought making fun of him was a good thing. I no longer admire her. I do wonder if this will have the macaca effect, like it did when George Allen lost to Jim Webb for the Senate.
The local news last night introduced us to Ben Huh, who owns I Can Haz Cheezburger and all those other websites. He lives locally and has become a multimillionaire with a company instead of just sitting at home and running a website about cats.
