Reflections of a New Year






New Year's Day for 2015 was yesterday and after much football, food and ale, it's time to do some reflections over the past year.  One of the things that we discovered over the past year is that politicians will always be politicians.  Meaning, they will say anything to get your vote.  I won't name names since all politicians are basically alike.  It's incredible how many of our elected leaders lie, cheat and steal to get what they want.  Is it any wonder why so many people give Congress and the Presidency such low marks for approval?  Like so many, I am disgusted by them.  Expect that web of lies and deceit to continue in 2015 and thereafter.  Along the gulf coast, the mild hurricane seasons continues to amaze us.  There was not one major storm that struck the gulf coast once again.  I hope that trend continues in 2015.  I'm hopeful that we continue to escape the wrath of hurricanes after what 2005 brought us in the way of Katrina and other Cat 5 hurricanes.  I'm not sure I can take another year like that.

I finally traded in my 2006 Honda Civic last year.  I bought a 2014 Honda Accord Coupe V6 and I am extremely pleased with this car.  Extremely pleased.  I have had a multitude of health issues once again over the past year.  The most bothersome was gastritis issues.  It seems that hits me about once a month now.  I have been prescribed many types of medicine that do not address the problem.  I have discovered, by search on the internet, that a herb called Goldenseal helps with gastritis problems.  I am completely sold on its effects.  It has really helped me.  Other gastroenteritis problems are bouts of Diverticulitis.  It seems I will always have this problem.  I still have fought a continuing battle with weight issues.  As one gets older, it is a much tougher fight, I have discovered.  I will continue this fight throughout 2015.  My ex-wife and I continue to explore whether or not we will be able to have a relationship.  There are times when things look bleak.  There are other times when it looks possible we can have a kind and loving relationship.  We continue to see one another.  We continue to have arguments as well.  I don't know what the future holds for us in 2015.

As for this blog, as stated several times over the course of the past 3 months or so, we are winding things down on David's Musings.  My activity will cease on this blog after we reach a 1,000 posts which will be in April most likely.  The 7th anniversary will be April 5th and I expect the 1,000 post to be right around that time.  This blog has been enjoyable and a pain in the ass over the past 7 years.  We never achieved the kind of success I had hoped at one point.  I attribute that to any number of factors.  The main factor was that Google killed our page rank with the animal updates.  At one time, this blog reached a PR4 (albeit briefly) from a PR3 that it maintained for about 4+ years.  Now, it appears we are stuck at PR1 or possibly even worse.  None of that matters as much as it once did to me.  In 2015, this blog shifts from one of a personal blog to one of stories of the paranormal and supernatural.  That topic has  been extremely popular.  So popular, in fact, until I had to get a new feed specifically for that topic.  We continue to have tremendous success on that topic as evidenced by the latest contribution from Montel Kashirea's "Dreams of Terror."  That story is not one you want to read late at night by yourself.  Trust me since I found that out the hard way. 

I would like to take this time to wish everyone a joyous and Happy New Year in 2015.  Thank you for your continued support of David's Musings.
