Volume 48 - No. 49

Each year, thousands of patients throughout our nation await a donor for a heart, a liver, a kidney, a lung . . .any number of organs necessary to sustain life . . .and to make living easier. They are all available. For a price. Sometimes a heavy price. Sometimes a bargain basement price. But are the bargains really bargains? Take a look and judge for yourself.

commodity ready to be chopped up and exposed to the forces of supply and demand. You and I may see our own body as an inviolate temple; but, wait . . .if we suddently find we need a spare part . . . are we a bit more open to a business transaction? The statistics suggest that most of us are. In the US and like-minded countries, it’s illegal to sell body parts—they can be taken only from those who filled out a donor card before they died or who are willing to give up an
organ out of sheer benevolence. This means there isn’t enough tissue to go around. So, as with any outlawed or heavily regulated resource, a bustling underground trade has formed.
Sometimes the market in body parts is exploitive: Desperate people are paid tiny sums for huge donations. Other times it is ghoulish: Pieces are stolen from the recently dead. And ever so often, the resource grab is lethal—people are simply killed for their organs. This report will take a look at what
body parts cost here . . . and around the world. In addition to the parts themselves, we’ll look at the surgical costs.
There is a large market for transplant organs in the United States but most of the operations are done abroad. Scott G. Carney, who did an extensive amount of research and wrote of this phenomenon in Wired Magazine, points out: “Americans fly all over the world for kidney transplants, egg donations, surrogacy, adoptions and questionably legal

surgeries. Hospitals in America generally do not perform the operations themselves; instead it’s usually American brokers who connect patients with foreign surgeons and hospitals. Either way it’s still huge business. And once the article came out I immediately started getting e-mails from US patients on the kidney transplant lists asking me to put them in touch with hospitals and brokers who could arrange transplants for them on the cheap.” In discussions about his upcoming book ‘The Red Market”(release date May 31st), Carney goes on to say:
“Red Markets are not simply a fact of life in the world, or a simple expression of supply and demand. Rather they exist because of lack of transparency in the legal supply chains for human tissue. There are very few cases where anyone will ever know who donated blood that saved their life in surgery, or what specific person gave up a kidney after their car accident. The identities of donors are screened behind a wall of patient confidentiality. While there are legitimate reasons to keep these things anonymous, that very lack of transparency provides great cover for an organ criminal to ply their trade.

Those of you who are placing Christmas lights/decorations in your yards, would you please avoid anything that has Red or Blue flashing lights together?
Every time I come around the corner, I think it's the police and I have a panic attack. I have to brake hard, toss my wine out the window, eat the joint, fasten my seat belt, throw my phone on the floor, and push the gun under the seat. All while trying to drive.
It's just too much drama, even for Christmas. Thank you for your cooperation. 1.
Husbands and wives
This is something that I go into much more detail in in my book–particularly the way that the crooked history of the blood business has shaped all modern red markets.
I’ve found many cases where those two things together provide cover for criminals and unethical doctors to cut corners and exploit their patients. In rebuttal to Mr. Carney’s claims in his book, George Taniwaki, a software program manager in Bellevue, Washington, says: “(Carney’s comments) leave the impression that these gruesome activities are commonly practiced in the U.S. They are not. Organ trafficking is outlawed in the U.S. by the National Organ Transplant Act of 1984. No hospital or surgeon in the U.S. would dare violate the law and lose its accreditation or go to jail (despite what you see on TV night-time soap operas). Outside the U.S., transplants that are suspected to exploit the donor are prohibited at any hospital that abides by the Declaration of Istanbul which denounces transplant tourism. The story is followed by six pages listing the price of various types of transplant surgery in the U.S. Unfortunately, the data is illustrated using price tags. Thus, the reader may assume the price is for the
A wife asks her husband, "Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk and if they have avocados, get 6. A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk.
The wife asks him, "Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk?" He replied, "They had avocados."
If you're a woman, I'm sure you're going back to read it again! Men will get it the first time. 2. WATER IN THE CARBURETOR
WIFE: "There is trouble with the car. It has water in the carburetor." HUSBAND: "Water in the carburetor? That's ridiculous " WIFE: "I tell you the car has water in the carburetor." HUSBAND: "You don't even know what a carburetor is. I'll check it out. Where's the car? WIFE: "In the pool".

organ only. Further, they may get the impression that there is an active black market for organs in the U.S. There is not.
By mixing practices in India with the U.S. and making it appear that organs are sold in the U.S., this (article) may deter rich Americans from donating their organs. This is the exact opposite of what needs to happen for the global organ shortage to be mitigated.
The reality is that there are over 87,000 people on the waiting list for a kidney here in the US. Even with deceased donors, those who have marked on their license as an organ donor, the numbers simply are not enough to keep up with the demand for the number of people waiting for a kidney. The average wait is 5 years plus!
sell for what the market will bear, instead of an arbitrary price tag.
Sales to US customers for live organs are low in India, most international sales there are inter-south Asia. Or from the vast Indian diaspora. Worldwide, however, many Americans travel abroad to pay for organ transplants. There are also multiple US insurance companies that will pay for operations abroad.” It doesn’t serve anyone’s interest to allow unethical organ harvesting.
The only way that we can reduce this list is for there to be more living donors, who can participate in kidney pairings, and altruistic donors who again, can be the dominio of a large or small pairing.
In 2007 China issued regulations banning the commercial trading of organs and the Chinese Medical Association agreed that the organs of prisoners should not be used for transplantation except for members of the immediate family of the deceased. Despite these, initiatives reported in August 2009 that approximately 65 of transplanted organs still came from death row prisoners.”
“While the rates that I used in this story are based on real transactions and the best available data, the actual price varies quite widely. Like most other commodities, organs tend to

This morning I saw my neighbor talking to her cat.
While it is convenient to point our fingers at India, China, and many other countries outside our immediate sphere of influence, our hands are not particularly clean when it comes to illeThe conversation begins:
ME: Where are my beautiful girls? Has daddy told you how beautiful you are? How clever you are? Oh, your daddy has missed you so much! I haven't seen you in almost two hours! You two are the most beautiful girls in the whole wide world! Yes, you are! Daddy loves! Yes, I do!
You want daddy to rub your tummy? (At that question they eagerly roll over on their back, exposing their tummies so Daddy may more easily rub them. They seem very, very relaxed.) OK, that's enough. Should Daddy let you out in the backyard to play?
Talking to Dogs
(At this question they again wag their tails and run in circles, then head for the kitchen and the sliding glass door that leads to the fenced backyard. I open the door and let them run outside to play and to do their business).
I do. We have hearty conversations almost every time I see them.
ME Want me to rub your tummy?
I told my dog about it.
We laughed and laughed.
Do you talk to your dogs?
They love their daddy. They jump and wag their tails, and run in circles, anxious for me to take my place, on the floor, with my back to the couch. They then take their assigned places like well schooled students, Trixie at my left thigh, Cindy at my right thigh.

gally harvesting body parts.
For example, Parker, Weichman, Alonso, LLP, a nationwide law firm, offered a legal commentary that pointed out . . . “While the scandal has been developing for several years, a logical starting point for a discussion of the problem is March 2004 when UCLA’s Director of the Willed Body Program, Henry Reid, was arrested and a criminal investigation launched into the activities of others at the University of California for the illegal sale of body parts.
That series of events focused attention on the fact that one cadaver could be dismembered and sold in parts for over $200,000 to the pharmaceutical and medical industries. It became shockingly clear that illegal “chop shops” were not confined to the stolen automobile trade. There was, in fact, an underground network of body part traders who utilized university medical centers as “fronts” for their ghoulish business.
Advances in surgery and other medical techniques also fueled an underground trade in transplantable tissues and organs that quickly became a multi-billion dollar a year business.

Among the unspeakable horrors linked to this trafficking was the kidnapping of homeless children (for their transplantable tissues and organs) along the border between the U.S. and Mexico and the forced removal of organs from prisoners in third-world countries for sale in the U.S.
The probe of the UCLA Medical Center went back as far as 1998. Also arrested in March 2004 was Ernest Nelson, a body parts dealer who claimed to have paid Reid over $700,000 for permission to enter the UCLA body freezer and literally chop up some 800 cadavers and harvest their parts.
The cadavers stored at the university were supposed to be used exclusively by medical students for study. Nelson provided documentation to authorities that allegedly proved high level UCLA administrators had knowledge of and approved the secret sale of the body parts. Reid, employees under his supervision, and others at the UCLA Medical Center appeared to have avoided detection by keeping some of the donated cadavers “off the books” and by possibly accepting cadavers that were never recorded. At that time, there had been numerous reports of homeless

persons vanishing from the downtown Los Angeles “Skid Row” area located close to UCLA. There had been unexplained disappearances of UCLA students as well. One of those students was 18-year-old freshman, Michael Negrete, who vanished from his dormitory on December 10, 1999, and has never been found.
The pharmaceutical and medical industries pay very well for a host of body parts including skin, scalps, fingernails, tendons, heart valves, skulls and bones, which then find there way into research, manufacturing of drugs, and replacement surgery. Medical device and instrument manufacturers often use these harvested body parts in training seminars for doctors.
In 2004, Johnson & Johnson was named in court documents as having contracted with Nelson for certain human tissue samples. In addition to such scandals as the University of California Medical Center being used to “launder” cadaver parts, are numerous underground clinics that perform transplants involving illegally obtained organs.

from children kidnapped along the U.S. border with Mexico and transplanted into wealthy American patients in underground clinics in Mexico and Texas.
The burgeoning trade in human organs was the focus of a 2003 film titled “Dirty Pretty Things.” The film starred Audrey Tautou and was directed by Stephen Frears. It provided a glimpse into the hidden world of illegal immigrants and the trafficking in human organs that exploits their desperation for profit.
One of the serious problems with this illegal trafficking is that it circumvents all screening and testing procedures set up and maintained to ensure recipients will not receive diseased or otherwise contaminated tissue or organs. With the possibility that dozens of unsuspecting patients could receive tissue or bone from a single diseased cadaver, the potential for a medical catastrophe cannot be minimized. All one needs to do is to consider the fact that, within the past few years, nine people have died as a result of receiving transplanted organs from only two donors infected with a rodent virus known as lympho-

Currently, a scandal with nationwide implications is unfolding in New York City. In Brooklyn, alone, some 1,000 corpses are part of the District Attorney’s investigations into the theft and sale of bones and other body parts removed from fresh corpses at several funeral homes, without permission, and sold to BioMedical Tissue Services, a Fort Lee, N.J., tissue recovery company run by Michael Mastromarino.
Bones and body parts were replaced with everything from broomsticks and pipes to plumbing supplies. It is even being alleged that body parts from British actor and host of Masterpiece Theatre, Allistaire Cooke ,were stolen and sold to BioMedical. These illegally removed body parts include bones for orthopedic procedures and dental implants, tendons and ligaments for those with tears or other damage, and skin for burn victims and cosmetic surgery. Unfortunately, the tissue and bones were harvested without regard to the cause of death and without proper screening

As a result, Lifecell Inc. announced a voluntary recall of three products made from body parts acquired from BioMedical Tissue Services. They are AlloDerm, used for plastic surgery, burn and periodontal procedures; Repliform used for gynecological and urological surgical procedures; and GraftJacket, used for orthopedic applications and lower extremity wounds. In addition, many medical facilities and hospitals have been forced to notify patients of the possibility that they may have contracted any one or more of a number of serious and even life-threatening diseases from the bone or tissue grafts they received.
North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, for example, telephoned and sent letters to 42 former patients advising them that they may have been exposed to potentially contaminated body parts. The letters state the hospital had indirectly received human bone, skin and tendons from BioMedical Tissue Services which may not have properly screened them for infectious diseases.

ple across the country, and possibly more on Long Island, may have been exposed by untested parts from BioMedical.
BioMedical is already being sued by two New York families who claim a relative’s body parts were stolen from the grave and sold to the New Jersey company. Hundreds are already being tested for various diseases. Many of the body parts used on Long Island were purchased from BioMedical by a Florida tissue bank responsible for testing and sterilizing every body part it buys. In an interview with Tucker Carlson , then on MSNBC, famed forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht discussed how something this ghoulish can happen in America.
He stated that when bodies were sent to certain Brooklyn funeral homes for the necessary embalming, consent forms were forged giving permission to remove “various bones, tendons, ligaments, heart valves, teeth and so on. Not major organs like heart and lungs and kidneys, because that just could not work.” According to Wecht this isn’t the first time something like this has happened. “I’ve been involved in some cases over the Chuckles Cont. from Page 2

A funeral director tied in with an autopsy technician in a large hospital, and they were taking out people’s eyes and selling them to foreign countries.” Dr. Wecht noted that in forging the necessary documents, ages and causes of death were changed. “They eliminated things like cancer and put in heart disease.”
In October, the Food and Drug Administration directed the recall of all tissue harvested by BioMedical. It also urged that recipients of tissue that originated with BioMedical be tested for communicable diseases.
Additional litigation has been commenced in the form of a class-action on behalf of the estates of the 1,000-plus victims. “The tissue and organs that have been removed from our beloved brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, good friends, have gone to other people who are now having these diseased parts in them,” said Dainis Zeltins, whose brother’s body parts were stolen.

Divorce in Italy
A man and his wife were getting a divorce at a local court in Italy, but the custody of their children posed a problem. The mother jumped to her feet and protested to the judge that since she had brought the children into this world, she should retain custody of them. The man also wanted custody of his children, so the judge asked for his side of the story. After a long moment of silence, the

Regeneration Technologies Inc. and Tutogen Medical. Mastromarino says “if they weren’t (sterilized), then that was the fault of the distributors who were sterilizing the tissue and cleaning it.” Then came the announcement that five additional families in the Rochester (New York) area have joined the federal lawsuit that accuses BioMedical of unlawfully harvesting body parts without consent.
The expanded lawsuit also alleges three more funeral homes aided the scheme by providing access to bodies and failing to obtain proper consent.
Since more and more people are coming forward in response to the initial suit being filed on March 7, the attorney representing the plaintiffs have asked that the lawsuit be designated a class action, allowing it to move forward on behalf of multiple plaintiffs with similar allegations. A Brooklyn grand jury has already indicted Mastromarino, his partner, Joseph Nicelli, and two other men. Mastromarino ran BioMedical, Nicelli operated funeral homes, and the other men, Lee Crucetta and Chris Aldorasi, are alleged to have been the ones who cut up the bodies and replaced missing bones with creative carpentry and plumbing work.
Finally, as reported in nypress.com, there is an interesting angle to the story in terms of who was not named in the indictment; NYPD Detective Joseph Tully, Mastromarino’s business partner and operator of two funeral homes. Tully was also employed as a security guard at the Bronx County Medical Examiner’s office. Although Tully appeared to be closely linked to the case, was named in the first two lawsuits, and was even the subject of an internal police department investigation, he has now mysteriously vanished from the matter. No public statement has been issued by the NYPD, Tully, or anyone else as to whether he was cleared of any culpability or still has some involvement.
Based upon the revelations so far in this case and the problem of illegal harvesting of body parts, tissue, and bones in general, there promises to be years of criminal prosecutions, civil lawsuits, and revelations that would make Dr. Frankenstein proud. April 8, 2006
Nancy Scheper-Hughes is a UC
Berkeley Professor of Medical Anthropology, founder of Organ Watch, author of scholarly books and articles on the subject, and "unflinchingly honest in (citing) the Israeli connection." "Israel is at the top," she states. "It has tentacles reaching out worldwide. (It has) a pyramid system at work that's awesome....they have brokers everywhere, bank accounts everywhere; they've got recruiters, they've got translators, they've got travel agents who set up the visas."
They pay "the poor and the hungry to slowly dismantle their bodies" or simply take what they want from fresh corpses. Body parts are commodities, to be harvested and sold to the rich, even though organ sales are prohibited in most countries, but not in international law. She went on to say: “the Israeli Ministry of Defense is involved in a practice by which "bodies are broken, dismembered, fragmented, transported, processed, and sold in the interests of a more socially advantaged population....," Israel engaging in more of this globally than any other nation.
Its medical teams apparently are doing it in Haiti, exploiting fresh corpses and the living. The Manar TV cited You Tube said "there are people operating in Haiti who do not have a conscience and are members of the search and rescue teams, including the Israeli occupation forces," far from home harvesting Haitian organs, and the pickings are plentiful.
So what is one to do if one needs a spare body part? A heart, a lung, a kidney? When supposedly distinguished schools such as UCLA have been complicit in illegal body part harvesting and selling? When major surgeons with supposedly distinguished credentials do not properly vet the source of their tissues, bones, and organs? What can be done? The chance is slim that a loved one's body or body parts will be stolen for personal profit after he or she dies, but the following are some suggested tips to help prevent theft:
• Witness the cremation. If the loved one is to be cremated, more crematoriums today have set up viewing rooms where family members can watch the body be put into the cremation furnace. • When a loved one dies, family members may agree to donate some or all of the body for research or transplant.

The Grape State of California
Last week the Assembly Select committee on Wine and also the Governmental Organization Committee, met in San Diego to discuss issues facing California’s wine industry. The bi-partisan committees heard from local vintners, the San Diego County Vintners Association, the Wine Institute, the Association of African-American Vintners and the California Department of Alcohol Beverage Control. Discussions ranged from complex interstate commerce issues, legal matters, regulations and enforcement, to tariffs, the impacts of Brexit and the new trade agreement with Canada and Mexico. Since many committee members hail from wine growing regions in Northern California, I was very happy to help represent the interests of our local wine industry. After all, wine is a big deal down here in San Diego and SW Riverside.
Take Temecula for instance. Temecula’s first commercial vineyard was planted in 1968. Temecula Valley’s 40-plus licensed wineries produce more than 500,000 cases annually, on vineyards covering over 2,400 acres. Due to its unique geography, cool, moderate and

A visiting Priest was attending a Men's breakfast in an Ohio farm county. He asked one of the impressive older farmers in attendance to say Grace that morning.
After all were seated the older farmer began....."Lord, I hate buttermilk." The Priest opened one eye and wondered to himself where this was going. The farmer loudly proclaimed, "Lord, I hate lard". Now the Priest was overly worried. However, without missing a beat, the farmer prayed on,"And, Lord you know how much I hate raw, white flour".
Just as the Priest was about to stand and stop everything, the farmer continued, "But Lord, when you mix 'em all together and bake 'em up…I do love fresh biscuits". So Lord, when things come up that
warm-climate varieties thrive in the Temecula Valley, including Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Grenache. Overall, Riverside County vineyards produced 1,746 tons of wine grapes in 2016, with an annual regional economic impact of $78 million.
San Diego County has a well-established history in the wine industry. The first vineyards in California were planted by the Friars at Mission San Diego de Alcala in 1769. In 2017, 1,210 acres were harvested by the County’s 115 wineries, producing 2,783 tons of grapes. Leading local varieties include Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Grenache. Our local wine industry generated a $50 million regional economic impact in 2017, up from just over $30 million in 2016.
With 90% of the nation’s wine exports originating in California, we must do all we can to make sure our region’s vineyards continue to thrive. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.

The Lone Eagle: Hero or Spy
Charles Augustus Lindbergh, born Feb. 4, 1902, became the most famous man around the world when in 1927, he flew solo across the Atlantic from New York to Paris, France.
Nicknamed “Lucky Lindy,” “The Lone Eagle,” and “Slim,” he was an American aviator, military officer, author, inventor, explorer, and environmental activist. And, maybe even a spy.
At age 25 in 1927, he went from obscurity as a U.S. Air Mail pilot to instantaneous world fame by winning the Orteig Prize: making a nonstop flight from Roosevelt Field, Long Island, New York, to Paris, France. Lindbergh covered the 33 1⁄2-hour, 3,600-statute-mile flight alone in a single-engine purpose-built Ryan monoplane, the Spirit of St. Louis, which was built in San Diego. This was not the first flight between North America and Europe, but he did achieve the first solo transatlantic flight and the first non-stop flight between North America and the European mainland. Lindbergh was an officer in the U.S. Army Air Corps Reserve, and he received the United States' highest military decoration, the Medal of Honor, for the feat. Lindbergh's achievement spurred interest in both commercial aviation and air mail, and he devoted much time and effort to promoting such activity. But his historic flight and celebrity status also led to tragedy. In March 1932, his infant son, Charles Jr., was kidnapped and murdered in what American media called the "Crime of the Century" and was described by H. L. Mencken as "the biggest story since the Resurrection.” The case prompted the United States Congress to establish kidnapping as a federal crime once the kidnapper had crossed state lines with their victim. By late 1935, the hysteria surrounding the case had driven the Lindbergh family into voluntary exile in Europe, from which they returned in 1939. Before the United States formally entered World War II, some people accused Lindbergh of being a fascist sympathizer. An advocate of non-interventionism he supported the antiwar America First Committee, which opposed American aid to Britain in its war against Germany, and resigned his commission in the United States Army Air Forces in 1941 after
President Franklin Roosevelt publicly rebuked him for his views. Nevertheless, he publicly supported the U.S. war effort after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and flew fifty combat missions in the Pacific Theater of World War II as a civilian consultant, though Roosevelt refused to reinstate his Air Corps colonel's commission. In his later years, Lindbergh became a prolific prize-winning author, international explorer, inventor, and environmentalist.
Lindbergh and his wife, the former Anne Morrow, were the parents of six children. He fathered seven more children as a result of several covert adulterous affairs with three German women (two from Bavaria, one from East Prussia) beginning in 1957 when he was 55 years old. In 2003, (29 years after Lindbergh's death and two years after his wife died) one of those children, Astrid Hesshaimer, revealed the story of Lindbergh's affairs to the world. A number of years later, a rather obscure news report indicated Lindbergh had been an undercover spy for the U.S., when he was invited to inspect Hitler’s Luftwaffe in the late ‘30s. His anti-war support for the America First Committee reportedly was a ruse to hide his true mission when he visited Nazi Germany.
In the 1930s, Lindbergh's anti-communism stance resonated deeply with many Americans. Although Lindbergh considered Hitler a fanatic and avowed a belief in American democracy, he clearly stated elsewhere that he believed the survival of the white race was more important than the survival of democracy in Europe: "Our bond with Europe is one of race and not of political ideology," he declared. Lindbergh developed a long-term friendship with the automobile pioneer Henry Ford, who was well known for his anti-Semitic newspaper The Dearborn Independent.
To this day, Lindbergh remains an enigma. What was he really up to leading up to World War II? Was he, or wasn’t he a spy for the U.S. Army Air Corps, or was he just a voice against the growing war clouds in Europe and Asia – or, maybe both. Lindbergh died Aug. 26, 1974. He is buried near the small village of Hana on the island of Maui in Hawaii. The real truth went with him to his grave.

The Elusive Jesus Cont. from Page 4 Or another beautiful lyric . .
“Fee fee, fi fi, fo fo, fum, I smell smoke in the audi-torium.” Great lyrics such as this gave rise to "Charlie Brown . . . he's a clown." That's why I don't try to write music. I'm sometimes silly but not THAT silly.
I have written poetry . . . but seldom, if ever, share. Poetry is an accumulation of private thoughts of no importance to anyone but me. And sometimes, not even to me. I have awakened in the middle of the night with an idea for a story . . . gotten up, started researching the subject matter, found reference material, studied what had been already done in this particular area, assembled the data, then started to write . . and the words just flow. Writers get inspired . . . they write. It's really not all that hard.
Going back to "Poison Ivy," one has to wonder what the inspiration for that song was. It is said that "Poison Ivy" is not about a plant at all but about a young lady with a social disease. Makes sense to me . . . read and absorb the lyrics, and wonder if the young lady in question (theoretically) was an aquaintance of one or both of the authors, and, what torment these two songwriters must have physically gone through to give them the inspiration to find the words to form the lyrics to the song: "Poison Ivy" She comes on like a rose but everybody knows She'll get you in Dutch You can look but you better not touch Poison iv-y-y-y-y, poison ivy-y-y-y Late at night while you're sleepin' poison ivy comes a'creepin' Arou-ou-ou-ou-ou-ound
She's pretty as a daisy but look out man she's crazy She'll really do you in If you let her under your skin Poison iv-y-y-y-y, poison ivy-y-y-y Late at night while you're sleepin' poison ivy comes a'creepin'
Measles make you bumpy And mumps'll make you lumpy And chicken pox'll make you jump and twitch A common cold'll fool ya And whooping cough can cool ya But poison ivy, Lord'll make you itch!!
You're gonna need an ocean of calamine lotion You'll be scratchin' like a hound The minute you start to mess around Poison iv-y-y-y-y, poison iv-yy-y-y Late at night while you're sleepin' poison ivy comes a'creepin'

play-offs. So how do we respond when after practicing over and over, we don’t succeed? Most feel defeated, remorseful, rejected, and a failure. Can religion, faith, and God be helpful in such circumstances? I believe so. It depends on how one views success and the need for perfection.

Perfection – Almost
Recently I wrote an article for this paper entitled “Practice Makes Perfect”. With few exceptions, no one commented on it, possibly because for most people, it is impossible to achieve perfection, no matter how much one tries. However, it is possible to improve. People are trying to do that in just about every category of life. There is practice, practice in the sports world, TV cooking classes, musicals, and yes, even religion. They want to do it better and become perfect. Does this mean that those who have worked at something, and don’t reach the top are failures? One would think so when you lose in the play-offs. Just look at the faces of the losers, to say nothing of all those who have competed, lost, and never got to play in the
I share my own personal experience with you. I enjoy hunting elk, and every year try to prepare for the hunt with target practice. The need to feel confident with a gun, ammunition, and skill takes time and practice. The more the better. This year, especially, I practiced and practiced. On a trip to Wyoming for the hunt the opportunity, which isn’t often, came to shoot an elk. I missed. With all that practice I missed. How should I react? Perhaps more practice would have helped, or could I find comfort in just trying? And then, I could try again next year.
I did learn one thing, though, and that is, no matter how much one practices, there is comfort in just trying to do the best one can, even though you miss. It is always possible to miss and fail, but also rise to another day and challenge. For the elk, it was another day to live. With that I can be happy for that magnificent animal. It deserves the victory.

What’s happening with Win 10 vs. 7?
All of our biases, prejudices, opinions and judgments are biases on our own day to day experience dealing with computer problems for small business and home personal computers users. We understand and sympathize with the giants of our industry as they employ strategies and tactics to protect their turf and battle for profitability, market share and sometimes their very existence. We also see that small businesses and home users are often “collateral damage” in their “big picture” strategies. In our business we
When Microsoft released bad OS (operating systems) like Win 95, Win ME, Win Vista, Win8/8.1, and the Windows 10 upgrade, we warned our users that these products were problematic and that they would be wise to stay with an older OS until Microsoft fixed things. Folks that listened to us had few problems, those who listened to the “industry hype” typically came to regret it.
As we come to the end of 2018, Windows 7 and Windows 10 are in a virtual tie for worldwide market share, each having roughly 40%. Microsoft had hoped that Win 10 would quickly replace Win 7 and 8 but they ran into considerable resistance from business and home users. Win 10 offered no tangible benefits for most business or home users and Microsoft’s aggressive update schedule created the general impression that Win 10 was buggy, incomplete. The mandatory updates were more than just an annoyance, they cost time, money and lost data. In spite of these problems, your next “New” PC will probably have Windows 10. Microsoft has announced that there will be no new “Windows” OS, only updates and upgrades to

Major brandS (Dell, HP etc) in retail stores are sold with Microsoft’s latest OS. Windows 7 Home edition has not been available on new PCs since the release of Windows 8 in October of 2012. We haven’t been able to buy a new Win7 retail PC for the last six years, yet half of us still have one with Win7. Win7’s successor, Win 8/8.1 lived from Oct 2012 through mid 2015 yet its market share today is only around 5%, even smaller than Apple’s. Windows 7 was, and is, an excellent, stable and trouble free OS and is still used by 80% of businesses and nearly half the rest of us. So if you want a brand new Retail quality PC with the Windows 10
