Some Interesting Things I Read Today

As you can imagine, after the past week I had, getting back to “normal” is just a little difficult.  Add in cooler temps and rain and you get an almost pensive set of days.  To counter this, I’ve been reading different articles on-line and playing some video games.  However, as far as the video games are concerned, I am having to be careful with the ones I select to play because one of my favorites, Warframe, is almost too “fast” for my brain and causes it to slow down quite a bit.  So, I’ve been playing a lot of Elder Scrolls Online.

So, I am sharing some of the articles because you may just be interested in some of the same things.  Sorry this post is so boring, but, sometimes, boring is good, and informative.

The men were killed allegedly because the shooter said it was because of the following two reasons:

because “he wanted to prevent them from committing planned acts of domestic terrorism,” Assistant State Attorney Ronald Gale wrote in a pretrial motion filed in Florida’s Hillsborough County Circuit Court.

The materials were found in Russell’s Tampa apartment Friday after police discovered the bodies of 18-year-old Andrew Oneschuk and 22-year-old Jeremy Himmelman. Police say Arthurs, the fourth roommate, confessed to killing the two men, claiming they were neo-Nazis who disrespected his recent conversion to Islam.

    I’m way behind so didn’t see the hospital post until just now, so I zipped through the rest to this one. First of all, glad to see you’re recovering, and that it doesn’t appear to be a stroke. (Had an uncle crippled by one at a young age, a worry that hangs over my family.) Sounds like you’re torn between wanting to get going full speed again, and being wiped out. Play it that way! Try to allocate time to be Ms. Road Runner and time to be Ms. Sloth, recuperating from having to travel six whole inches in the last four hours. Hope things are improving.
