Three score and ten or more

Thursday, July 30, 2009


Dish network called today to tell Janet that we are overdue with our payment.  Of course the satellite went out just before the conclusion to CSI, and the bank let me know that they had already sent the payment.    I think that by next month I will be signed up with the Cable or Direct TV.  Nothing could be much worse than this.

On another topic, advertising:  Public Radio just informed the world of something I have been planning to explain for awhile. 

Viagra was king of the hill in "ED" medication for a long time, then their sales fell off sharply.  They discovered that their fall-off in sales coincided with a warning announcement by one of the other "ED" drugs (I think it was by Cialis) that if the patient has an erection that lasts over four hours one should immediately call a doctor.  This warning had increase sales to the detriment of Viagra.  Now the warning is on every ED product and sales have evened out.  Seems like the men in question are all hoping for a medical misfortune.

I have some other little advertising tid-bits I have been saving but I am not in the mood for humor right now.  I took my oldest son, who has liver disease to the hospital today to have an endoscopy.  The doctor gave Jan and me some of the information gained, and scared us half to death.  I'm also desperately trying to get our old house ready for the renters and that is pushing me.

I'm too old for this crap.

Yes you are. It's never a good time to hear bad news, I've learned.
