Singing like a caged bird

Spent the better part of the day being I am still not dumb as a post...althought some of these posts may have you wondering. This was post-operative testing...checking how the rebuilt ticker is doing. I am pleased to report that everything is looking great and I will be driving again soon and going to the gym to rehad the cardio system. A big part of the test for me was unintended.....tried my patience and had to practice mindfullness not to get annoyed at the long waiting periods between tests. I passed that test too.


When you are feeling down, you may want to see a possible cause. Then you might want to observe some things to make you feel good. Since blue is my favorite color and it might help me to keep centered, I paricularly like gamma. But sometimes you might feel the need for something a little extra..for me it is Ben and Jerry's. Hey, they dont have my favorite, Cherry Garcia, so to support a needy cause ladle out some gravy.

Okay, indulge me... for a moment...I will be sexist. Women should consider the following interventions for those certain moments...if they want to tantalize or if they need to dull the pain or lower the inhibitions, perhaps these will do.

For the testosterone laden, you may want to wolf these, washed down with large intake of these while watching the stupor bowls of these.

And not to forget the "True Believers", you can turn to what Marx labeled "the opiate of the masses". My favorite would be the lotus. Although the collective consciousness has appeal to me as well as many aboriginal peoples of the world.


It looks like Serbia is becoming the black hole of Nowhere Men.....who disgrace that which is good and kind in the human wit:

(Excerped from AFP wire service)
BRUSSELS (AFP) - "Top Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic has taken refuge in Belgrade, chief UN prosecutor Carla Del Ponte said, lamenting the city has become a "safe haven" for fugitives.
She said Wednesday the Bosnian Serb leader during the bloody 1992-1995 war in Bosnia-Hercegovina had apparently joined his then army chief Ratko Mladic in the Serbian capital, where authorities have frozen contacts with her.

Del Ponte added that around 15 war crimes suspects remained on the run in Serbia.
The charges against Karadzic and Mladic relate in particular to the three-and-a-half-year-long siege of Sarajevo, which killed some 10,000 civilians.

Karadzic is also accused of being one of the prime organizers of the 1995 massacre of more than 7,000 Muslim men and boys in the eastern Bosnian town of Srebrenica.

On Tuesday Bosnian Serb President Dragan Cavic demanded to see evidence to back international sanctions against a senior Serb politician accused of protecting Karadzic.

Cavic said he was concerned that the allegations, made Monday by the international community's high representative to Bosnia, Paddy Ashdown, could spark a political crisis within the Bosnian Serb government.

Ashdown said former Bosnian Serb president Mirko Sarovic was part of a criminal network which was protecting Karadzic.

Sarovic was among 10 Bosnian Serbs whose bank accounts were frozen Monday as part of an international campaign to target the network of people helping Karadzic and fugitives from the UN war crimes court at The Hague."

On the other side representing what is right with the human species....You might be interested in the following excerpt from Paddy's vitae:

"During the conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Paddy was one of the leading advocates for decisive action by the international community. He argued strongly that this would help bring the conflict to an early close, and that this was in the interests of all the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina whatever their ethnic background. He visited the country many times during the conflict and subsequently. He took up his duties as High Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina on 27 May 2002."
