Hazards of the Job – Episode 047

In this episode, I read a piece of my writing that I wrote on July 11, 2009. It was first posted on the website of one of my podcasts (that no longer exists).

This is a story about what it is like to be a teacher, with a less-than-stellar immune system, while surrounded by children who spread germs and viruses.

I wrote this piece on July 11, 2009, on a website for one of my podcasts (that no longer exists). I wrote it while I was sick and fighting a hazard of the job that teachers have to put up with – constant exposure to germs and viruses!

This piece has been edited for typos and clarity.

Johanna Basford 2019 Coloring Calendar – March

I’m working my way through the 2019 Johanna Basford coloring calendar. A friend gave it to me as a Christmas gift. My goal is to try not to fall too far behind.

Coloring is a good for my health. It reduces stress (which is bad for my fibromyalgia). I also color to keep my hands active, which is good for my rheumatoid arthritis.

New content started with Episode 010.

In 2018, the Democratic Party became the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. The 116th Congress started on January 3, 2019.

The Democrats set out to stop the GOP from destroying Obamacare, Medicare, Medicaid, and other health care that is affordable for low-income and marginalized people.

Unfortunately, the GOP still had the majority in the U.S. Senate, and President Trump, a Republican, was still President of the United States. As such, the shenanigans continued.

Season 16 (Season of Grandeur) – Slayer

My main goal for Season 16 was to complete the Season Journey up through Chapter IV and get the Wings of Lempo. What’s next?

My second goal is to finish enough of the Season Journey to unlock more non-Seasonal stash space. The first step towards that goal is to complete Slayer.
