    If I eat an orange, I go partially blind in both eyes for about an hour. Straight up weird.

    This could well be the first sign of a change in fortunes for you nivek, small things like managing to stay out of hospital can be experienced as a big win.

    Glad to hear it.

    Back to work today, an early start too at 4 am, I feel a different vibe here at work too, I'm taking that as a good sign although the vibe isn't positive nor negative, just different, I like that and welcome it...

    Looks like a busy day ahead too, they left me a list lol...

    I woke to the harmonious sounds of rain hitting the roof.

    I ponder it's symbolic meaning.

    A cycle of life giving water, lifting, drifting, floating, and condensing.

    The planetary purification, washing away its pain with a mortal cry...

    giving rise to new things and living.

    Dispensing the old and refreshing for a new 2020...

    Bringing clarity its vision, Earth heals again.

    Fell asleep quite early last night, close to 8 pm, it was a very restful long sleep and quite an exciting dream, long dream too which is unusual for me...I had the 8th episode of the Mandalorian on my laptop near my bed, I was going to watch that show but fell asleep a few minutes into it...Then the dream began, an alien invasion was upon us, ships landing everywhere, aliens emerging from their ships and attacking people, taking people...I was with a small group of neighbors fighting them off and a pod came out of one of the small ships nearby us and it was getting closer to me...At the same time a couple aliens saw this and pointed to the pod as they were approaching it...I jumped out from behind my car and jumped one of them and started hitting the alien knocking it out but the other one hit me and I fell back on the ground...It pulled out its weapon and was about to shoot me but then the weapon started to fold in on itself and crumble into a ball and the alien seemed like something grabbed it and was squeezing it really hard crushing it and tossing the alien away...I get up and see twenty feet away from me that pod which was open and empty...There in front of it was baby yoda smiling at me, he did that to the alien helping me haha...

    I worked 14 hours yesterday on PLCs exclusively, the techs had their hands full and I was asked to get my own personal programming laptop from home since the two programming laptops at work were being used for other problems...My own laptop contains licensed software from Siemens, Allen Bradley and Beckhoff purchased by me and for my own work...Its the first time I needed to use my laptop at work lol...

    Anyway it is mental fatigue I'm feeling today, been sleeping off and on all morning and more this afternoon...Been dreaming like hell every time I close my eyes the last two days, never dreamed so much in years, vivid dreams too I remember quite well...

    I wrote this just to vent because I felt bad for leaving the man there after I couldn't get his minivan started and know that nobody cares about an update. But here it is anyway.

    Ran into his son yesterday and got the full story. Seems this is a chronic occurrence because he's a bumblef**k not broke. I feel better knowing that a) I didn't abandon the man to his doom and b) it seems the old instincts were operating just fine there.

    What's that old saying ? God helps those who help themselves ....

    Not sure if is this is an appropriate response but I had to put in my 2 cents worth. There is a Lowe's near my house. It is one of the few Lowe's located in an urban neighborhood. It's also one of the highest grossing stores in the chain. I know this because I worked a seasonal job there a while back.

    All three parking lot entrances are always lined with homeless people and panhandlers. Most of them are honest people trying to find daily labor with contractors but many of them are scammers and cut-throats. Any time someone approaches me at an HD or a Lowe's with a story about needing money for the bus or because their car broke down, I always take it with a grain of salt. Sorry to be cynical but sometimes you have to be realistic. Give yourself credit for trying to do the right thing, PF.

    This incident happened to me a few years back. I was working in the city and I passed this guy in his early thirties sitting on a busy street corner. He was panhandling for money and he tried to hit me up. I told him to get a real job. He didn’t like my advice so he started cursing me out.

    There was nothing wrong with this guy’s health. He was just lazy and this was a good way to make money. I don’t mind helping those in need. It torques me when individuals just don’t want to support themselves so they take the easy, lazy way out.

    Oddly, I've spent a few nights roaming around Grand Central Terminal in the wee hours. The ones that were incoherent but would actually take any food you offered them were the real ones that needed it. If they could carry a conversation, probably not so much.

    I missed that original post and I just read up, we don't have many homeless around here, being a small town in the country, but we get the occasional 'few', meaning, you would think one or two passing through once in a while, but I've seen small groups of them suddenly around town at different roads coming in and out of town holding cardboard signs with some sob story, some have a small dog with them, the dogs always look healthy enough and so do the men holding the signs, although a bit dirty sometimes...One day saw a van going around scooping them all up, they were at a service station a few miles outside of town all together getting coffee and munchies, like they are all working together pooling their pickings and moving on...Don't know what to think of that, are they scamming or are they living out of that van, really homeless doing their thing...I'll never know...
