A bill was introduced in Mississippi to ban obese people from restaurants. I can't imagine this would pass. It seems too much like discrimination to me. Some people are overweight due to health problems they can't control and it just seems unfair to not let them enjoy dining out. I don't feel the state has the right to tell people where they can eat or tell the establishment that they can't serve those people and lose the money.
Today I've been thinking that I might be willing to give a cornea transplant another shot if the opportunity ever comes up. I have had a couple and both rejected. I have no idea where this is coming from but it's on my mind today.
The most recent one was fine one day and I woke up the next morning everything was very blurry. Before that things were great. I was noticing things every day that I had never seen before. I went to the doctor and they put me on eyedrops ever hour 18 hours a day and it slowly got better.
Things stayed pretty good for a few years but then my vision in that eye slowly got worse. It happened so slowly that I didn't even notice it until one day I realized I was using my "bad" eye which hadn't every been operated on. That set off a long period of depression.
The eye doctors told me that I could get put on the list for another cornea but at that time I decided I didn't want to because they weren't working for me they might have a better chance for someone else and thought it would be selfish to get another one.
I'm not sure why the sudden change of heart on it but I really do think I would like to give it another try. Maybe it would work better this time. It would be worth it to me even if it didn't last forever to have the opportunity to see things clearly again. It would be great to be able to just read a book with out a huge difficulty
It would be awesome to be able to see nature. Geocaching gets me out there alot. I would love to see the hawks and other birds that fly along the Susquehanna river. It would be wonderful to get the chance to see a bald eagle or just the shapes of complexity of trees. Right now they're just a green blur. I didn't appreciate having the chance to see these sorts of things enough in the past but I would now.
Most importatly I would love the chance to see Molly's face.
We are having a quick arctic cold snap right now. It made it down to 10°F which was pretty cold but no where near the record for the day. The record was -22 °F here, set in 1994. It was the coldest of the year but not close to the 2 °F my davis vantage pro2 recorded last year. I remember that winter. Back in the Philly area we had rain and ice that winter. Further north and west they had snow and ice.
This time in 1994 the north eastern us was in the grips of an arctic airmass that set some all time records. Even in Philly it was one of those not too common times when when the temperature didn't make it above 10.
I remember that being a fun winter which was cold and stormy. I wish I had access to the internet then and all the information that is available now. It would have made it more fun to watch.
I looked at the radar than looked out the window and got a nice surprise. It's snowing moderately and the grass is white. It's just starting to stick to the sidewalks but the street looks just wet. It's pretty heavy and fairly large snowflakes falling. My gut feeling was it would be rain or sleet. Maybe tonight I'll have to go for a walk.
Pretty much like I've been suspecting we didn't get any snow here. We got rain instead. I just didn't see the temperature dropping fast enough for us. Besides that the storm was to form too far north and east to really give us anything. Maybe we'll have better luck next time.
There was a time when I would really get my hopes up for a storm like this to happen but I don't do that to myself anymore.
