Well I did it. I made the jump to an e-cigarette. I am smoking about half of what I was a week ago. I can see this working towards quitting completely but first, let’s start at the beginning.
A few weeks ago I took a friend down to Saturday’s Market. It’s a big huge flea market between Middletown and E-Town. While there we came across a booth selling e-Cigs and all the accessories that go along with it. My friend stopped to ask a few questions about her e-Cig and they ended up giving her a little hooky thing to open her e-Cig and refill it. They didn’t charge her anything for it and I was impressed that they did that. She mentioned, on the way home, that they also have a kiosk at a local shopping mall. I just filed the information away. Last Saturday I got a bug up my ass and decided to get my own e-Cigarette. I remembered our encounter at Saturday’s Market and off to Capitol City Mall I went. While there I found out the company is called LifeSmokeVapors . I bought a kit with two rechargable heaters and 5 vapor cylinders. The heater looks like the main part of a cigarette and the vapor cylinder looks like a filter so the whole thing looks like a cigarette. I got a small vile of nicotine liquid to refill my e-Cig. I can see this helping me to quit cigarettes completely. I am replacing regular cigs with the e-Cig. Once I get to the point that I’m no longer smoking real cigarettes I can start to reduce the amount of nicotine in my e-Cig. Eventually getting to the point of not using the e-Cig at all.
It’s kinda’ like quitting backwards. I’m breaking the habit first then I’ll deal with the addiction second. So if you’re looking into an e-Cigarette check out these guys at LifeSmokeVapors .
Well my beloved Eagles kicked ass under the direction of new head coach Chip Kelly. Last night in their season opener against the Washington Redskins, on Monday Night Football, they ran all over them. The “High Octane”, no huddle offense made mincemeat of Washington’s defense. Michael Vick threw for two TD’s and even ran one in himself. The other TD came from Shady McCoy running one in solo. On the other side RG3 threw two int’s, was sacked three times and the ‘Skins gave up one fumble. After last season it’s nice to see the Eagles play like a team determined to win.
Fly Eagles Fly!!!
I love my iPhone. I like having Siri to search the web for me. I really like the 64Gigs of memory it has for my music playlist. I like having a mini computer in my hand that also makes phone calls. This single device has replaced my phone, camera and iPod. It’s all that rolled into one. Being very anti-Google, I didn’t want an android smart phone and my only other choice was the iPhone. I like that whatever is being tracked by my use of this smart phone it isn’t being tracked and stored by Google. I could have gotten a Windows phone but like I stated previously, “… my only other choice was the iPhone.”.

America, America, a band goes marching by
A flare of trumpets down the street
And bright against the sky
A sweep of color ripples out
And a flag flies high
A gleam of scarlet on the blue
A light upon the hill
The flag, The flag, America
Is lifted waving still
And in each breast a song of thanks
In every heart a thrill
The marching martial band
Beats out the measure of your might
The power of your hand
But nothing stirs the heart like this
High flag above the land
God keep your flag, America —
As clean and bright as when
It first unfurled above the heads
Of brave undaunted men —
So free that men will never need
To die for it again
I met Dick Trickle on September 9th 2000 at the Richmond International Raceway. It was the afternoon before the Busch race. He kept hitting me up for my Camels and telling me how much he liked racing the short tracks. We just sat there awhile smoking cigarettes and talking about racing. When I asked him if it were true that he use to smoke in the race cars he said to me, in his mid-western drawl “Yeeeeeah they don’t let me do that anymore.”
You see that May earlier in the year I went on the Zippo website and took a quiz about NASCAR racing. Needless to say I won the Grand Prize of a day at the track with Jimmy Spenser driving the #20 Zippo car in the Busch race on a Friday night. Dick was driving for Jimmy that night in the #99 Schneider National car. My bud Jim who went with me to the race spent the afternoon talking with Jimmy Spenser while I walked up to Dick and introduced myself as a fan of his going back to the Grand National Racing days. He told me all about how to go into a corner on a short track and when to get back in the gas coming out of the turn.
I had a memorable afternoon with a racing legend.
Dick Trickle came in third place in the race that night. Jimmy Spenser took fifth place.
Dick Trickle took his own life with a self-inflicted gunshot. He was 71 years old.
R.I.P. Dick Trickle
A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers
Some scholars reject the very idea of social justice as meaningless, religious, self-contradictory, and ideological, believing that to realize any degree of social justice is unfeasible, and that the attempt to do so must destroy all liberty. Perhaps the most complete rejection of the concept of social justice comes from Friedrich Hayek of the Austrian School of economics:
There can be no test by which we can discover what is ‘socially unjust’ because there is no subject by which such an injustice can be committed, and there are no rules of individual conduct the observance of which in the market order would secure to the individuals and groups the position which as such (as distinguished from the procedure by which it is determined) would appear just to us. [Social justice] does not belong to the category of error but to that of nonsense, like the term `a moral stone’.
Ben O’Neill of the University of New South Wales argues that, for proponents of “social justice”:
the notion of “rights” is a mere term of entitlement, indicative of a claim for any possible desirable good, no matter how important or trivial, abstract or tangible, recent or ancient. It is merely an assertion of desire, and a declaration of intention to use the language of rights to acquire said desire. In fact, since the program of social justice inevitably involves claims for government provision of goods, paid for through the efforts of others, the term actually refers to an intention to use force to acquire one’s desires. Not to earn desirable goods by rational thought and action, production and voluntary exchange, but to go in there and forcibly take goods from those who can supply them!
Janusz Korwin-Mikke argues simply: “Either ‘social justice’ has the same meaning as ‘justice’ – or not. If so – why use the additional word ‘social?’ We lose time, we destroy trees to obtain paper necessary to print this word. If not, if ‘social justice’ means something different from ‘justice’ – then ‘something different from justice’ is by definition ‘injustice’”
Sociologist Carl L. Bankston has argued that a secular, leftist view of social justice entails viewing the redistribution of goods and resources as based on the rights of disadvantaged categories of people, rather than on compassion or national interest. Bankston maintains that this secular version of social justice became widely accepted due to the rise of demand-side economics and to the moral influence of the civil rights movement.
Well I’ve been home for two weeks now and am doing quite well. All my little scars are healing nicely and I no longer have any pain. My first week home was very difficult and painful. I was flat on my back or up and walking around. You see anything in between these was very painful. I came home with a catheter installed in me and it made sitting or lying on my side very painful. So I spent the first week doing alot of laying about.
Then came 14 November and I had the catheter removed. Yea! All my pain went away. The only problem left is incontinence. I have no control over my bladder. The prostate along with a sphincter muscle are how we hold our pee from just flowing whenever it wants to. Well I no longer have a prostate so I am in the midst of learning to just use the sphincter muscle to control my pee. I am in the early stages of this. I have to wear an adult diaper for now but every day I get a little bit better than the day before. Soon I’ll get to a point wherein I’ll only have to wear a pad to catch the little bits that don’t get held 100%.
Despite the temporary incontinence I think the whole surgery thing has gone very well. I no longer have any cancer inside me growing and becoming something scarier. That was the whole idea behind all this. Now if the two little spots on my right lung are found to be nothings I will be able to say I am cancer free and that’s what I’m hoping for.
