Some medications may be interacting and need to be adjusted. Dehydration can cause confusion. A lot of situations can look like Alzheimer's, but a...

No problem! I can't go there cuz good coffee is too hard to find. I did finally locate a little shop in Sydney that roasted beans daily.

Lol, like I said, I'm in a remote place. Black Friday was a fun thing. We didn't break down doors. We gathered and drank coffee while kids played. It was silly and we had a good time.

Re: Latest from the GOP circus

i'm not laffing at this. I take it seriously. I think they they truly want to destroy their perceived enemies. Mebbe I'm nutz, but I think a coup occurred in November '16. There is a very agitated group of people who want blood from Clinton, Soros, Comey and numerous others.
