El Cabrero hasn't been much of a blogger lately, due in part to what seems to be a bout of noro virus, which is pretty nasty. So far, it knocked me out of attending my grandson's birthday party and completing a 10 practice trail fun, not counting other stuff I can't remember.
At one point, it was so bad that I must have fainted, getting a nasty knock on the back of my head. That was one of the more pleasant symptoms.
I wouldn't wish this on....well, that may be best left unsaid.
FIRST SOME GOOD NEWS. Ohio's governor, a hardcore Republican who opposed health care reform, supports expanding Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. Now if only WV's Democratic governor would do the same.
THEN SOME BAD. One veteran commits suicide every 65 minutes.
and now, for something completely different,

RANDOM FEVER INDUCED THOUGHT. I think I'll name my next dog Eponymous.
