Sigh. It was bound to happen sooner or later. I am just glad it happened once vaccines were made though. But it was pretty much inevitable here. Here being Alabama. Denise is doing her Ph.D. here because it was the only school that accepted her application. Probably helps that she got her Master’s degree here, […]
A while back I got a lab test of all lab tests because of turning 50. Getting old sucks. Through the tests it showed I was pre-diabetic on sugar and liver function showed I was doing rather poorly to the point the doc said it showed I suffered liver damage. Yikes. But really, not that
Recent bloodwork indicates I have high blood sugar. Much too high according to the doctor. In a way, I am not entirely surprised. Covid, being a computer programmer, and working from home.

Since Denise is heading down to Alabama, it will mean she will be taking and using the Microsoft Surface Pro. Which will leave me without a laptop that is worth anything. I have an old VAIO ultra-portable (at the time) but that is a 32-bit machine and slow as molasses now. I still like the
