It’s summer, so I must have hurt myself…again. But luck friends…this time, IT’S THE RIGHT KNEE!!!! Now, not sure what I did to it. I think it has something to do with softball and running, but not anything major. Just pain and swelling when I do to much. So, had a MRI this morning. Got all the pictures on a disk, and in my wholely untrained eye, I don’t see any ligament damage (good) and the menisci look intack (real good)…so maybe it’s just tendonitious (or something). So, rest and maybe not some much softball for a while.
In further summer news, I’ve moved into the new place…4001 Hyde Park, behind KFC. Not to shabby a place. Lots of room, but lacking in general closets…no where to put the vacuum. Also going to miss having a garage, but with the lease, all the utilities are included in the rent, so can’t bitch about the air being on all the time. Just need to up the thermostat a smige…but pretty good times. The girl is moving into the same neighborhood in August, and will start biking to the Lab when my knee situation gets clearer.
He’s something I don’t get….I read yesterday that some scientist out east thinks that if we want to completely run our cars on Ethanol (which would be good, cause Pop makes money that way), that we would need 97% of the fertile land to grow it all. So, corn’s bad (lies). Why is it that everyone is preaching something…but not everything? Sure, oil’s bad…and corn’s takes to much energy to make energy…and nuclear is the devil. Lies, I say. FDR had it right with the TVA. I think. But, we surely need to get more. I recalled the Australia is setting up a solar system in the Outback…but that’s completely unihabited land. But, something that may work in New Mexico. If anything, more ethanol, nuclear, solar, and wind are needed…and hydroelectric (why are there no hydroelectic plants on all the locks on the Mississippi?). And tax the hell out of the oil companies…6 billion per quater…robbery.
