  1. The baby monitor

    by , 06-25-14 at 07:50 AM
    Well, I guess I'm happy with the baby monitor. In my last blog, I related a bad experience with it -- the first night. Caused me to nightmare. But last night and early this morning were different.

    It has a real sensitive audio and picks up mom's voice very well. At 2 AM this morning, it woke me up with her voice. After seeing that she was safely in bed, I laid there a few minutes to see what had awakened me.

    Mom came home yesterday. I was as thoroughly prepared as I could be. Had her oxygen generator delivered, a full-electric hospital bed, bought a baby monitor.

    I'm not sure about the baby monitor. It was my cousin's idea.

    by , 05-31-14 at 09:24 PM
    Due to being limited to 10,000 characters this month senate update will be in two parts. Part I contains the predictions from Alaska to North Carolina. Part II contains predictions for South Dakota and West Virginia, predictions on the House of Representatives, my comments and memory lane.

    South Dakota Johnson D retiring R Mike Rounds had a 20 point lead over Democrat Weiland in February. But a Survey USA poll released on 15 May has Rounds lead at 14 points. That is still ...
