Commonplace Book

“They are not skilful considerers of human things who imagine to remove sin by removing the matter of sin … Though ye take from a covetous man all his treasure he has yet one jewel left, ye can not bereave him of his covetousness. Banish all objects of lust, shut up all youth into the severest discipline that can be exercised in any hermitage, ye can not make them chaste, that came not thither so … a dram of well-being should be preferred before many times as much the forcible hindrance of evil-doing. For God sure esteems the growth and completing of one virtuous person, more than the restraint of ten vicious.”
John Milton

Hey, that was practically a whole month ago. I can't even remember yesterday.

I don't remember it either Jerry. But then I paid a hospital bill twice and my insurance bill twice, 6 months in advance total. Within 3 days. Forgot I had written the previous checks. And overdrew my checking account but quickly got that resolved.

I'm wondering if I'm getting Alzheimer's disease. Scares the crap out of me. But Alzheimer's disease might be enjoyable. No politics to worry about.

But why can't Alzheimers be a noun? The spell checker tells me that Alzheimers isn't a word. And that pisses me off. Which may mean I'm safe. Dunno.
