This is my second blog.

My first blog chronicled my experiences over three years caring for my dad as he lived through and finally died from Alzheimer's. That is the book that is for sale.

This second blog kind of chronicles of life, what it is like to start your life over in your late 50's. After caretaking, you are damaged, file bankruptcy, and the world doesn't care what you did. After 8 months of unemployment, you wake each day knowing the world doesn't want you. Finally you do find a job, 5 weeks before homelessness, but doing what you did 30 years ago and getting paid what you did 30 years ago. So this is starting over.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Okay, I'm a Chicagoan.  Which means from an early age I learned that teams will absolutely break your heart if you let them, which is why I can happily say since about 1972 I never let a sports team determine my happiness or sadness.  Win, that's great, lose, okay too.

So today, the Bears, a team many thought had a shot at the division and maybe even the Super Bowl, - stop laughing Brian, some were picking them - lost again.  And badly.  They got some junk points in the 4th quarter on NE, but this was a total blowout from start to finish.

Next week the Bears have a bye and may be the first team in football history to lose on the bye week.

Now, check this out on foxsports.com.  Down 48 to 23 with around 3 minutes left in the game, the backup QB for NE gets sacked by a Bear player named Houston.  It is the Bears first sack of the game. And the Bear player gets up and does some big sack dance like this is really cool, and blows out his knee.  Seriously, blows out his knee doing a sack dance when his team is down by 25 points in the fourth quarter.  He is carted off the field.  Absolutely the funniest thing you will ever see.

Sorry, just had to share that moment.  And no, I'm not watching the game, I just checked the score online.  Why would any Chicago sports fan want a TV?
