The CDC says this about prevention:
What can I do to prevent salmonellosis?
But no one talks about the long tern effects, or how it affects a persons life..
I wonder why?
Salmonella can have devastating results.
I personally could not eat meat, or oh gosh chocolate for months after the
salmonella poisoning.
It seems very weird that no one talks about .. what happens later..
Didn’t you ever wonder????

Heinlein Visited

Filed under This~n~That

One of my favorite authors was Robert Heinlein. I spent a bit of time curled up with several of his early books this weekend. I decided to share some of his wisdom……

Robert Heinlein was awarded four Hugo Awards for his novels. He was also awarded four “Hugo’s” for years which has not previously awarded them.
Heinlein also won the first Grand Master Award given by the Science Fiction Writers of America.

The following quotes are from various books, by Robert Heinlein.

“You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don’t ever count on having both at once.”

“Always keep your clothes and your weapons where you can find them in the dark.”

“Pacifism is a shifty doctrine under which a man accepts the benefits of the social group without being willing to pay - and claims a halo for his dishonesty.”

“As to liberty, the heroes who signed that great document pledged themselves to buy liberty with their lives. Liberty is always unalienable; it must be redeemed regularly with the blood of patriots or it is always vanquished. Of all the so-called ‘natural human rights’ that have ever been invented, liberty is least likely to be cheap and is never free of cost.”

“War is not violence and killing, pure and simple; war is controlled violence, for a purpose. The purpose of war is to support your government’s decisions by force. The purpose is never to kill the enemy just to be killing him but to make him do what you want him to do. Not killing… but controlled and purposeful violence.”

“The most expensive thing in the world is a second-best military establishment, good but not good enough to win. “
