    We just had a big boomer, then all hail broke loose! Literally. Our front yard and all the plants we bought at Lowes last month are covered in hail. We don't get the big stuff Texas and other places get, but it still sure don't do new plants any good. Been a crazy weather month of May for us.

    FWIW, it's been cooler than usual here in the Ozarks, too. More rain than I recall having in the past, but that could be selective memory.

    As for your lack of sleep, that'll happen to me due to being inactive. Then again, my sleep patterns seem to want to be changing of late, in general, too.

    What I want to know, is why it takes an entire week to recover from ONE bad night's sleep.
    The last one is the easiest to answer: Age. As you get older, colds, a long night, jet lag, all take longer to bounce back from. I shudder to think how these older railroaders, who I knew, managed to shake off an all-nighter when working the Extraboard.

    Global Cooling is the reality. Larry Oldtimer knew it; so did I. The sun is entering a quiet period - where there's less gamma radiation, which is tied to sunspot activity. This cycle comes and goes, but the quiet period seen from about five years ago, on, has been the most severe since the Maunder Minimum.

    This, while the nation goes insane. I suspect there's going to be some hunger about, before this is done.

    Summer of 1969, we were putting up a lakefront cabin.

    A family project. The structure was framed by the contractor, but interior finishing, wiring, painting...all of it...we did.

    We opted to live in the shell weekends while the work went on. Air mattresses and bedrolls, or for the grownups, folding camping cots.

    There was an electric water pump. And we'd put the hot-water tank in, right away - before any of the indoor plumbing was finished.

    That June...I discovered the bizarro thrill of taking a bath in a 40-gallon plastic garbage can. Hot and cold water hoses on a relatively-private lawn, after sundown.

    But I'm changing, as old geezers do. As a kid, I slept deeply. As a young adult, not-so-much, with frequent insomnia. Later got in the habit of treating it with bedtime alcohol. Then came railroading, and the chaotic sleep patterns...and now, I sleep enough and adequately. No better than.

    But my recent habitual seven hours, is shrinking to six or five, even with all the machines and medications....
    Me, too. I'm in bed...fitfully...2:30-3:00 am. I'm up whenever the dog wants to wake me to go out and then have his brekky. I go back to bed and it seems my best sleep in after that. Alcohol doesn't work unless I get through too much of it...Valerian won't work...nuthin'.....

    There ain't no answer...
    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....
