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.

There are a few different versions of the map below floating through cyberspace about how all the insiders know this is coming, how the US will be redone by mother nature and are hiding and ready in bunkers.

The ones below are the most common:

Now, when I look at this one, I'm thinking what idiot drew this map?  First of all, what is Florida going to do, rise up 100 feet above sea level suddenly?  Flat sea levelish Florida mostly remains but somehow the waters out west manage to get past two mountain ranges that are well over 10,000 feet high, if the water goes above the Wasatch Front in Utah, and across the Continental Divide in Colorado, well then it's all downhill from there to the Mississippi River so the map above is absolutely ridiculous.  Now if that map continued the rockies thru NV, UT and OR, then I might say hey, that could happen, but sorry, if it gets over the rockies, the middle of america is swampland.  Then the lower levels of Michigan, the center of the state remain above water but the hilly sections of MI are underwater?

By the way Canucks, notice almost every major city in Canada is underwater except Calgary and Edmonton, that is what you get for electing a male model for Premier I guess.

Is there a National Gordon Lightfoot Day in Canada?  There should be.

Finally, if that map above turns out to be accurate, that mountain ranges in west sink and they rise in the east, you can pretty well bet that the three super volcanoes located in the US will have erupted and no one will be alive to draw this map.

The map above is another variation that actually makes a little more sense, let me explain why.  Take sea level.  Did you know that at the equator, in the middle of the pacific, the sea level is above 500ft? Seems that the spinning of our planet, sorry flat earthers, makes the water gravitate towards the equator, so sea levels there are much higher than sea levels elsewhere.  If for some reason, the moving of the poles, pole shifts, etc - all of which are actual geological events, then that water could move and certainly the eastern portion of the USA could change to that map.  Out west, once again, there would have to be such massive geological shifts of plates and mountains that the super volcanoes would surely blow and life as we know it will be over so nobody will care.

Here is why I am discussing this, beside Woody Woodpecker not being over.  These maps may or may not happen.  If they do, no one will be around to say 'told you so'; but there is something about these sort of things.  They make prepping people look like idiots.

Truth be told, your government is prepping for something.  I mean Obama raised our debt by 10 trillion dollars, where do you think that money went?  No, not the Clinton Foundation, but that would be a good guess.  It has been used to build and stock underground areas in this country.

This is factual.  You could see the construction jobs in VA, CO, MO, and other states.  Now I don't necessarily know if there are tunnels from VA to MO to CO  or stuff like that, but there was a reason the government bought enough ammo 10 years ago to shoot everyone on earth, twice.  There was a reason you could not order emergency foods easily for a few years because the government was buying it.  There is a reason we've gone from less than a trillion in debt in 1987 to 20 trillion in debt in 30 years.  They are spending it on something besides houses and retirement plans for members of congress and their gnomes.

If the Redskins are ever forced to change their name, I hope they call the team The Washington Corrupt Pedophilic Elites.

But to be honest, not sure I'd want to be in an underground tomb if all this moving of earth's crust were to be occurring, would you?  Sure would be poetic justice if all the elites headed to these bunkers and all ended up buried in their safe bomb proof shelters and people on the surface survived. Plus it would save universal energy since they wouldn't have as far to travel to their final destination in the afterlife.

Sit by my side, come as close as the air
Share in a memory of gray
Wander in my words, dream about the pictures
That I play of changes
Green leaves of summer turn red in the fall
To brown and to yellow they fade
And then they have to die, trapped within
The circle time parade of changes
Scenes of my young years were warm in my mind
Visions of shadows that shine
'Til one day I returned and found they were the
Victims of the vines of changes
The world's spinning madly, it drifts in the dark
Swings through a hollow of haze
A race around the stars, a journey through
The universe ablaze with changes
Moments of magic will glow in the night
All fears of the forest are gone
But when the morning breaks they're swept away by
Golden drops of dawn, of changes
Passions will part to a strange melody
As fires will sometimes burn cold
Like petals in the wind, we're puppets to the silver
Strings of souls, of changes
Your tears will be trembling, now we're somewhere else
One last cup of wine we will pour
And I'll kiss you one more time, and leave you on
The rolling river shores of changes
So sit by my side, come as close as the air
Share in a memory of gray
Wander in my words, dream about the pictures
That I play of changes

Gordon Lightfoot again
