Winding down

Yes, I know. Two in one day is just too much.  I’m sitting here in bed trying to get to sleep but can’t seem to quiet my mind down so I thought I’d write a bit to see if that helps. 

Tomorrow will be a very long day.  I’ll have a class from 830am to 1130am then a break until 1pm.  Another class for an hour then if I’m still sane, I have a few things to do in the lab.  It shouldn’t be an extremely long day, just alot of sitting which is something I don’t deal with very well. 

One thing I forgot to shout at the rooftops—I have my iPOD working again.  The wait for the battery was excruciating but finally came to an end about a week and a half ago.  I’m now able to take my “sanity” with me where ever I go.  I finally had a chance to sit down tonight and reconfigure some of the music.  Since I had managed to fill it up, I started looking through and realized I had several files in several different places.  Tonight I tried to pare that down as much as possible.  I also got rid of a bunch of podcasts that I had on the iPOD.  They are still on my computer so I can add them back later. 

So, my thought for the evening: there is a website  I’ve been meaning to post for a while so here it is.

One of my regular podcasts is “This Week in Virology.” Despite the name, it’s actually a very entertaining show with a blog of the same name that details each shows subject and featured links.  The link above came from this podcast.  The show’s subject was on vaccinations so of course, Ms. McCarthy’s name came up.  This site shows in shocking detail just how many illness have occurred that could have been prevented and also how many deaths.  There is a disclaimer in the write up that not all the stats can be contributed to Jenny McCarthy but her status as a celebrity makes her a very likely target.  The write up is very well done and brings up many good points in this argument. 

So, I guess that’s all for me tonight.  Got to get some sleep sometime.
