And yes, pray for this girls soul. She’s gonna need it as her family obviously thinks of her as nothing more than a slave animal. And not the beautiful human being she is. Pray her mind can heal. Pray hard.

Why the Ford Model A is the best American car ever made.

Paul Shinn
Aug 2, 2020

Ford’s Model A is considered by many to be the best American car ever made.

Today, I review a 1931 Ford Model A Sport Coupe. I’m going to share some of the Ford Model A’s unique details and features, then take it on the road and tell you what it’s like to drive a Ford Model A. It’s no wonder the Ford Model A is the most thoroughly documented collector car ever.

If you subscribe to this YouTube channel right now, your Model A won’t break down on the next tour. Looking for a Ford Model A parts supplier to partner with in future videos.

Q: What gas mileage does it get? A: Low to mid 20 MPG.

Q: What color is it? A: The body color is Lombard Blue, the stripe and wheels are Hessian Blue. Fenders and reveals are black. This is exactly how this Model A left the factory. All paint was matched to the MAFCA color chips.

Q: What’s it worth? A: Who knows? Since it’s not for sale, I don’t even care.

Q: What’s the top Speed? A: Probably around 65 MPH. We’ll never know.

Haha! My Aunt Clare had one of these. 🙂

She bought it new and loved and drove the heck out of it!

 

sad iggy

I’ve woken up frightened and it’s not very nice, but it’ll be okay I hope.

Praying that the lady has not lost interest, but my mind makes up things to be afraid of. So, yes, I know, but still, I feel all creepy.

ETA I do believe that it is alright, regarding the lady, after some texting. Her days are so busy and getting up at 5am causes sleeping to ensue, which takes talking away from us.

It’s all so new to me. Clues, I’m afraid, are few and the ones present are slightly ominous. I think. I… don’t know. I know nothing.

ETA “I know nothing.” — Yeah, pretty much.

So many things are happening simultaneously and to be honest, I am a bit overwhelmed with all sorts of emotions and thoughts and fears. I need to get a grip on the situation. A good, solid grip.

Besides the lady, who is my first female friend in decades and the first one that has shown no signs of insanity so far, I’ve decided that I have reached a point where I need to sell my hut here in Cos Cob. With my condition and its condition, combined with my situation, there is more stress and anxiety about the future than is comfortable to deal with. I don’t want to, as it’s all I’ve ever known, but it has become a necessity.

The burdens of owning a house and being a landlord constantly lurk in the background and the costs incurred are debilitating when there is no reserve to cover the unexpected. The frustration of knowing that there is no way to make it get better is awful.

Praying for a deal wherein I can stay after the sale but I may have to move to a small apartment somewhere, hopefully not so far away from all the services I have been relying on, not to mention, of course, my friends in the neighborhood.

Many people have been saying that I should do it for several years now, and it seems that a turning point in my life has arrived.

I will post updates… my sanity will appreciate the outlet.

I welcome new friends, kind, caring, genuine friends who might want to talk to ease the pain away from our lives for a while.

Sorry to bother y’all

Carry on and be well,
Iggy

Vitamin D, First clinical trial

Dr. John Campbell
Sep 6, 2020

Please share this video around, this message needs to get out there, thank you, John

www.healthline.com/nutrition/… About 42% of the US population is vitamin D deficient 82% in black people 70% in Hispanics Association of Vitamin D Status and Other Clinical Characteristics With COVID-19 Test Results, (JAMA Open, 3rd September, Chicago) jamanetwork.com/journals/jama…

Cohort study of 489 Patients who had a vitamin D level measured in the year before COVID-19 testing Relative risk of testing positive for COVID-19 was 1.77 times First clinical trial on vitamin D and COVID Therapy versus best Available Therapy on Intensive Care Unit Admission and Mortality Among Patients Hospitalized for COVID-19: A Pilot Randomized Clinical study” (Spain, Journal of steroid biochemistry and molecular biology) www.sciencedirect.com/science…

Objective

Vitamin D decreases Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Effect of calcifediol treatment

Calcifediol can rapidly increase serum 25OHD concentration

25-hydroxyvitamin D

Intensive Care Unit Admission and Mortality

Spanish patients hospitalized for COVID-19.

Design

Parallel pilot, randomized, double-masked clinical trial

Setting

Reina Sofia University Hospital, Córdoba, Spain

Participants

76 consecutive patients hospitalized with COVID-19 infection

Clinical picture of acute respiratory infection

Confirmed by a radiographic pattern of viral pneumonia

Positive SARS-CoV-2 PCR

Procedures

All hospitalized patients received as best available therapy

Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin

Allocated at a 2 calcifediol:1

Oral calcifediol (0.532 mg), or not

Oral calcifediol (0.266 mg) on day 3 and 7

Then weekly until discharge

End points, ICU admission and deaths.

Results

50 patients treated with calcifediol

One required admission to the ICU (2%),

Of 26 untreated patients, 13 required admission (50%)

p  less than 0.001

Of the patients treated with calcifediol, none died, and all were discharged, without complications

Of the patients not treated, 2 died

Conclusion

Calcifediol seems to be able to reduce severity of the disease

Larger trials with groups properly matched will be required to show a definitive answer

Rationale, activation of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) signalling pathway

Reduced ARDS

Cytokine/chemokine storm

Regulating the renin angiotensin system

Modulating neutrophil activity

Maintaining the integrity of the pulmonary epithelial barrier

Stimulating epithelial repair

Tapering down the increased coagulability

Ventilate

Don’t abdicate
Dilute that virus
So you stay great
Ventilate
Don’t complicate,
Complain or whine
You’ll acclimate
Contemplate
When you congregate
Does the air here circulate
Instigate, Nominate
Educate, Motivate
I hope this message will resonate
That when we populate
Instead of isolate
Ventilate
Don’t abdicate
Dilute that virus
So you stay great

Vitamin D is amazing, powerful stuff. Make sure you get enough!

HT to my friend Kate!

Interesting fact.

This is how the Roman toilet looked like, which also served as group meetings. The Romans took the subject naturally and there was nothing shy about it. During the defecation there were various discussions and chats. Why waste time using the toilet and meeting friends later when you can combine these two things? Excavating the remains of the ancient city of Dion, archaeologists discovered the toilet with as many as fifty seats. It’s not hard to guess that the fragrances here had to be intense, that’s why a maxima cloaca was created – a channel to which impurities “produced” in public toilets were flowing.

The channel, out of concern for the comfort of the residents of the city, was covered to keep the sad fragrances inside. After passing the city, the fecals went to Tiber, the main source of drinking water for the city… you read so well.

Who of you would like to drink water?

As a curiosity, it is worth adding here that the Romans used the same natural sponge to abrasion. They were soaked with salt water and hung in the toilets for her clients. If the client finished, he washed the sponge and hung it for the next person.

It’s hard to imagine today, but in Roman times it was something normal and natural. Admit it, who of you would use it?

Don’t forget to like the page in the footsteps of the past!

Wow. Seriously. Efficiency and expediency ruled the Romans, it appears. Funny how some things matter not to certain cultures and not much at all to others.

Humans. Gotta love ‘em.

 

This is so totally awesome!

“The best evidence for life beyond Earth has been found in the most surprising of places – the atmosphere of Venus.

A team led by Jane Greaves, who is a professor at Cardiff University, has detected the presence of phosphine gas in Venus’ clouds. The intriguing thing about phosphine, which is a molecule formed of three hydrogen atoms and one phosphorous atom, is that on Earth its only natural source is from some anaerobic (i.e., non-oxygen breathing) microbial lifeforms. No known geological mechanism or non-biological chemical reaction produces it on our planet, although it is produced deep inside gas giants like Jupiter and Saturn where hydrogen is plentiful and the temperature and pressure extremely high.”

AC Greyhound

AC Greyhound

 

The rather sporty AC Greyhound coupé never really got much press, if memory serves, (which it does less and less). And that is something I find odd, because, well, it’s a very nice car. I saw it described once as “naughty!” Made me smile.

And to add icing to the cake, Patrick Macnee drove one as John Steed in The Avengers TV series. I loved his Big Blower Bentley, too, as it was just so perfectly matched to the role.

Wikipedia:
The AC Greyhound (1959–1963) was a 2+2 version of the Ace and Aceca automobiles made by AC Cars of Thames Ditton, Surrey, England and announced for the opening of the Motor Show in October 1959.[4] The Greyhound, of which 83 examples were built,[citation needed] had a two-door, four-seater aluminium body, and inherited most of the technical components of the Ace and Aceca but it had a wheelbase 10 inches or 250mm longer and coil springs in place of a transverse leaf spring at the front: []
