A Week in Review – August 2nd 2015

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. I am quite happy to announce that this week I did manage to; research, write, edit, footnote and embed images into five articles. This is mybenchmark for a ‘Good’ week. Now, what makes this week even better than ‘Good’ (for me) is that this week contained my thesis work on the ‘P5+1 Iran Nuclear Deal – JCPOA’ (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action)– ‘Iran Deal – Part Two’. This was a monumental task and was not possible without reading all 159 pages of the nuclear treaty. That, My Dear Shoevians, is a major accomplishment all by itself!

.

Really, if you were to give my articles weight according to length and composition, I published aboutten articles this week. Today ‘A Week in Review’ is a day late, and there will not be an edition of‘Sunday Funnies’. I apologize for this whole in my regular publishing schedule, but I just had to take a few days’ break, after that thesis length article explaining the JPCOA. Now I am rested and, mostly, healed from that adventure and ready to move ahead.

.

As I mentioned, late last week, this coming week I have another ‘Journey to L.A.’ on Tuesday. I was hoping to write and put a few articles into the hopper, for publication while I am gone and recovering. However, I have been unable to accomplish that goal as of yet. I will make every effort, today and tomorrow, to put together some articles. If all else fails, I will make several “Press This’articles to fill in the week. Well, now that we are all caught up, I think that it is time to get the to heart of this article.

.

So, without further adieu I give you ‘A Week in Review’!

  • Sunday Funnies – July 26th – Mohawk Rat – Redux “Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to a Redux of a recent ‘Sunday Funnies’ titled ‘Mohawk Rat!’. In this video we can see Gryphon combing the fur on his head, after a recent bath. It looks like he is styling his fur into a Mohawk haircut. This will be the very first ‘Sunday Funnies’ to appear at my all new blog location. Hope everyone is having an enjoyable weekend. Have a great Sunday!” This is my, by far, most favorite video (so far) by my newest little furry friend, Gryphon. ‘Mohawk Rat!’ Is something that all my little furry fellows have done, after taking a bath, but Gryphon really get into it! Every time I run this article, I see a real spike in traffic. This shows me that Gryphon is going to be a highlight to this blog, and a star all his won. ENJOY!

 

  • The Mars Report – July 27th, 2015 – “Our first image appears at the top of the article. This is an artist’s representation of NASA’s Mars Odyssey spacecraft. This June the 23rd the Odyssey spacecraft made its 60,000th orbit over the Martian surface. Its orbiting began on October 23rd, 2001 and on December 15th, 2010 it became the longest orbiting spacecraft over Mars. My, notorious, last image of this edition was taken by Odyssey. An image will take your breath away.” My Dear Shoevians THIS was the very first article published at the new blog location, that was written and published, my original way. This is my most favorite article series, right up there with ‘Lost in Space’. My articles on space, and space exploration, have a special place in my heart. I hope that everyone takes a look at this edition, I put a lot of love into this work. ENJOY!

  •  Iran – War or Peace – Part One – Historic Relevance – “Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. Today (July 28th, 2013) with this article I will engage and inform you, My Dear Shoevians, in a way and a theater of discussion which we are unaccustomed. I, generally, refrain from writing and publishing articles about domestic and/or foreign policy. In specific a discussion on American foreign policy and/or international treaties and their content. However, the current ‘P5+1 Iranian Nuclear Deal’ is of such international and historic significance I would be completely socially remiss if I did not share my insights and opinion. Therefore, My Dear Shoevians, I beg your indulgence (this time) while I work to dispel harmful rhetoric, enhance broader understanding and engage the men and women of America and the international community. Thank you for your understanding and support.” This article was written after listening to the ‘talking heads’ of the Right/Far-Right trash-talk our President and this agreement for many days. What I found most surprising, and enlightening, was that many (if not most) had not taken the time to READ the agreement PRIOR to starting the trash-talk. Debate, without knowledge, is not debate… it is a sophomoric exercise in Orwellian rhetoric. I will engage anyone on the FACTS and MERITS of this, or any, agreement. However, to engage in a public dressing down of; this President, the Secretary of State, and ALL the LEADERS of the P5+1 (Germany, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, America and France) WITHOUT having read a single word! Well, I have a name for that ‘Ignorant Hyperbolic Rhetoric’. In this article I draw a historic parallel between President Reagan and the SALT agreements, with the U.S.S.R. (our NUCLEAR nemesis at the time) and how his actions were categorized and the same rhetoric being used against President Obama now over this agreement.

  • Iran Deal – Part Two – The Agreement – “Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. As promised, today I am sharing with all of you the very TEXT of the ‘Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action’ aka the ‘P5+1 Iran Nuclear Agreement’. Today’s article has taken several days to complete. I do this out of a love of PEACE and the best possible future for our nation and its inhabitants. I do this for PEACE. … Now, without further adieu, I give you… … …” The single most important effort taken for PEACE in the first part of the Twenty-First Century. One-hundred-Fifty-nine pages of Treaty read –DONE! Treaty then researched and broken into digestible sections, DONE!  Written: THIRTY pages of; explanation, narrative, background, and breakdown of a very complex and exacting treaty, DONE! In this, 30 page, article I have attempted to address each and every concern that has surfaced since the announcement of this agreement. I have taken the hyper partisan hyperbolic rhetoric and put aside my ‘feelings’ and treated their (Uninformed = they haveNOT R E A D the agreement) talking points with dignity and honor. Then, I went about proving that their fears are, just that, FEAR. ENJOY!

  • Chandra :: Photo Album :: PSR B1259-63 :: July 22, 2015 – “Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. While doing a little late night, or early morning, searching through NASA/JPL web site I stumbled upon THIS incredible image. Taken by the Chandra X-Ray observatory in space, this image shows a “Chuck of debris” being jettisoned from a “double-star system” at incredibly high speeds. Now, when they say “Chuck of debris” this is actually a sizable amount of debris, as it is One Hundred times the size of our solar system!” While wandering around the web, one day, I stumbled upon the most incredible image I have ever seen. An Artist impression of a galactic occurrence of biblical proportions, so I just had to share! The images are from the ‘Chandra X-Ray Space Telescope’ they are of a pulsar shooting a galaxy-sized cloud of space debristhrough the orbit of a star! This is the very first time mankind has ever bore witness to a space occurrence of this magnitude. I would be completely remiss if I didn’t share it with YOU, MY Dear Shoevians. ENJOY!

.

With that, My Dear Shoevians, I bring this edition of ‘A Week in Review’ to a close, and this week’s publication to a close, as well. I do hope that everyone has enjoyed this week’s information and adventures. I will be back, next week, to share more and more of the world around us.

.

Adieu!

Thank you!

Sunday Funnies – July 26th, Mohawk Rat – Redux

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to a Redux of a recent ‘Sunday Funnies’ titled ‘Mohawk Rat!’. In this video we can see Gryphon combing the fur on his head, after a recent bath. It looks like he is styling his fur into a Mohawk haircut. This will be the very first ‘Sunday Funnies’ to appear at my all new blog location. Hope everyone is having an enjoyable weekend. Have a great Sunday! 

.

                Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. Today is Sunday, so that means it is time for our weekly series ‘Sunday Funnies’! This week we have another appearance by our newest star my little furry buddy Gryphon D. Hanning! I cannot begin to tell you all, My Dear Shoevians, just how much it means to me to have another furry little buddy. My house is just not a home without a little fancy rat scampering around, playing in the morning, sleeping in my lap in the afternoon, and watching TV with me in the evenings.

.

In this video I have actually captured a rat-habit that I have watched for many decades, but failed to get on video until now. Yes, I bathe my Fancy Rats. I bathe them in my bathtub and use my Panteen for Color Treated Hair. If it is good enough for me, then it is good enough for them! This way they smell that they have the very same odor was their fathers. This goes a long way to assist with familial bonding with Fancy rats.

.

Once they are out of the tub… and pouted a little… given the customary dirty looks to the daddy that bathed them… they go about; fluffing, grooming and arranging their fur the way they prefer. One of these process I call… Mohawking. This is the process of grooming their hair (the fur on the top of their heads) into a Mohawk! It is really quite amusing and entertaining! While I have watched it, as I stated before, for many decades, this is the very first time I have managed to get the process on video! I hope that you get a kick out of this, as much as I do!

.

ENJOY!

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. After a long, and unavoidable, absence I have returned just in time to share another edition of ‘Sunday Funnies’ with Gryphon D. Hanning. First, a little explanation of my absence for the past several days. At first I was taking some much needed ‘downtime’, however, since Thursday I have been unable to work on my primary blog location. This happens, from time to time, at the blog location at blog dot com. Rather than have a huge backlog of articles to cross publish, once the primary location comes back, I decided to wait and publish when I can do it at both locations at once.

.

Today, Sunday May 10th, I find that my primary blog is back! Now, I am going to get the ‘Traffic Report’ (already posted at Word Press) published at blog dot com, then I will publish this article at both locations. It is unfortunate that this happens all to often. I have, often, wished for the finances to have my own web site for my blog, making it so that I can publish whenever I like.

.

On with the show! Today we have another video starring Gryphon D. Hanning. This is his second video since coming to live with me. Just so you know I have two more videos already shot and uploaded, for future editions of ‘Sunday Funnies’!

.

SO, without further adieu, I give you Gryphon’s First Bath!

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. I have to openly admit, this week was fraught with pain and problems! Mid-week I was struck with some terrific pain, all through my neck and into my arms and head. I tried sleeping it away, I tried soaking it away and all to no avail. Finally, I just settled in for a long hard ride and decided to do as little as I could around the house… … … and to let the blogs… sit. THAT was a very difficult decision, My Dear Shoevians.

.

After a seven month absence I was seeing traffic numbers, for a week’s time, up to One Hundred Nineteen!!! That translates to a yearly traffic of well over SIX THOUSAND!!!!! That is some serious traffic numbers to take to a publisher… with a truly original and touching novel in hand. It wasn’t easy but I took Tuesday and Wednesday off. I re-published my Hubble’s 25th Anniversary’ on Wednesday, then it happened.

.

This happens every six to eight months, at my location at blog dot com, the whole bloody web site just crashes! So, I wait and wait and wait. GONE for three days! I did not ‘see’ my primary blog location for three days, until today! So, here I am trying my hardest to play catch-up with the missed publication of the ‘Traffic Reports’ band now this ‘A Week in Review’. Now, I am tired and hurting all over again. But this will pass. I have to manage to finish this weekly review, and then publish ‘Sunday Funnies’ before it is no longer Sunday!

.

So, without further adieu, I give you ‘A Week in Review – May 10th, 2015’!

  • Sunday Funnies – Gryphon’s Premiere! – “Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. Today is a extra special edition of ‘Sunday Funnies’! Today I would like to ask you, My Dear Shoevians, to join me in Welcoming Gryphon D. Hannning (click on the hyperlink to go to Gryphon’s Facebook Page!) to this storied article series. As most of you are aware… … … Alexander R. Hanning passed away, several weeks ago, after a long battle with failing health. I made him as comfortable as possible, prepared all his favorite foods, and held him 24/7 for his comfort. He was loved deeply, and will be even more deeply missed. Last edition of ‘Sunday Funnies’ was a homage to Alexander.” This, My Dear Shoevians, was a very difficult article for me to write and publish. You see, it was an end, of sorts. An end to the era of Alexander R. Hanning as the star of ‘Sunday Funnies’ and the beginning of an all new era of Gryphon D. Hannning as the new star. I never do well with endings… of anything, but especially of the furry little ones I come to care for and love. There will never be a day… a time when I stop thinking of Alexander. He had that big an impact on my life, my work, my soul. It was Alexander that was at my side when I was diagnosed with cancer. It was Alexander that was at my side when I came home after chemotherapy. It was Alexander that stayed by my side when I got sick, and was there no matter what happened. However, this article was the premiere for another furry friend, Gryphon D. Hannning. This is Gryphon’s premiere video and premiere edition of ‘Sunday Funnies’. I hope that everyone stopped by to enjoy his premiere and his antics. Enjoy!

  • The Mars Report – May 4th, 2015 – “Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. Today marks the beginning of my third week back at; researching, writing, editing and publishing here at The Other Shoe. That is an important milestone for me, as just a few months ago (about mid-way through my chemotherapy treatments) I wondered if I would ever return to writing and publishing again. Well, not at all, what I mean is I doubted that I would ever again publish on a regular schedule again. Now, here I am two weeks past and over a dozen articles under my belt since my ‘The Rebirth and Re-Launch of The Other Shoe’ article of April 13th, 2015.” It was this Gargantuan edition of ‘The Mars Report’ that I think put me over the edge and into a world of hurt. The singles largest edition, with the most images, the most conetnet and the most science ever! If you haven’t looked at this edition, you should! Enjoy!

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. Today is Wednesday April 22nd, 2015 and when I started the research for this article I quickly became aware that today is the 25th Anniversary of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope! What a glorious day to pay tribute to this wonder of the modern age, by sharing some of the most recent images captured by Hubble.” With the pain in my neck reaching new levels of blinding pain, I decided to give myself a day to rest and recover. Little did I know that the primary blog location would take this opportunity to go AWOL! Nevertheless, this edition is/was worth republishing, so I did! ENJOY!

  • Traffic Reports – May 7th, 2015 “Now that I have the news out of the way, let me get to the meat of this article. As many of you, My Dear Shoevians, know about every six months I publish a ‘Traffic Report’. Now, I do this for many reasons, not the least of which is that I enjoy sharing the limited success of my writing. Yes, I work hard at; research, writing, editing and publishing at The Other Shoe. When I see the traffic counter on the Blog Dot com location stay over one hundred for a week or more… YES I am very very proud! That has occurred over the past two weeks.” This was a very enlightening edition of ‘Traffic Reports’. Whereas I did see the corresponding decline in readership during my chemotherapy, if you don’t publish new content, readers go elsewhere, that is a given. However, there is ‘Good News’ in this report, too! Good news in the discovery of even more expanded international readership! THAT is very ‘Good News’ indeed! If you need a reason to read this article, learning that My Dear Shoevians live in; England, France, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands and evern RUSSIA should do the trick, eh? Read and be informed!

.

That, My Dear Shoevians, brings us to the end of this article and the end of the week’s publishing. I hope that everyone takes some time, out of your Sunday, to go back and read and view some of the wonderful work and images I shared this past week. Again, I apologize for the absence, made even longer by the down time at the primary blog location. I am back, and I have a “Sunday Funnies’ yet to publish, today.

.

I regret to inform you that this week is my ‘Quarterly Visit To L.A.’ and my primary care physician, Dr. Laurence Gorlick. This journey into L.A., and back, takes a great deal out of me. It is a journey that takes, Allen and I, more than twelve hours of transit van rides to get into Rancho Palos Verde, and back here to Orange County. I will do my best to keep up my writing schedule, I just cannot make any promises I might not keep.

.

Thank you!

Sunday Funnies – Homage to Alexander R Hanning

Alex at Xmas Hiding

Alex at Xmas Hiding

.

Welcome back My Dearest Shoevians to The Other Shoe. Today, as promised, I am here to present… to honor the lifetime’s contributions of Master Alexander R. Hanning. Most of you, My Dear Shoevians, and the world first met Alex right here in an edition of ‘Sunday Funnies’. I had the privilege and honor of knowing, and loving, this great rat his entire life. Starting to research this article, and put together images of Alex at many ages, I almost lost it. I would start to cry… then weep at his passing and my loss.

.

So much of mankind misunderstands and mistrusts rats. Now I am not talking about the common breeds of rats; rattus-rattus and rattus-norvegicus. These are you sewer and ocean faring vehicle rats. They are, however, the fathers and mothers of our modern day… domesticated ‘Fancy Rats’… what I have labeled rattus-superiorous. Just so everyone can know and maybe… just maybe inform a world. ‘Fancy Rats’ originated in the Victorian Era and were breed for dog fights. The original breeds of rats simply turned and ran, when placed in a pit with a terrier. IT was Jim Shaw that bred the very first Fancy Rats because they showed promise in the dog pits.

.

When placed into the dog pits these Fancy Rats would start to ‘box’ the terriers! They would no run away, scamper off, they would roll into their backs and begin ‘boxing’ with their front paws! This threw the dogs off, at first, and was the source of great sport… to the sick individuals that engaged in this inhumane and vile sport. Yet, even at our darkest mankind can do some small good. Our modern day ‘Fancy Rats’ owe their entire existence to Jim Shaw and sick and depraved Victorian Era perverts.

.

Now, back to my best friend and the star of ‘Sunday Funnies’ for many moons, Alexander R. Hanning. Now, it comes as a disturbing surprise that… and I have worked on this for over a week… I am having a difficult time locating early images of Alexander. Granted I am dealing with greatly increased pain, and eeven more limited mobility since my fall in the shower a little over two weeks ago. I apologize, however, I have been able to find videos of Alexander on My You-Tube Channel. Below is my very first video of Alexander R Hanning sharing a Freshetta pizza with me, his Daddy.

.

.

I am planning on creating his own YouTube channel… and put all his previous videos there for everyone to view and enjoy. Until I get the energy and make the time you can simply go to My You-Tube Channel and enter Alex/Alexander into the search engine. This should list all of the videos that have his name in the title. Again, I apologize for this inconvenience, between my failing health and my recent loss… well, I am just of the mind to spend hours and hours on these (much needed) projects. I am going to work on them just as soon as I am past my next series of scans… later this month.

.

Now, back to this homage and our star Alexander R. Hanning. Alex, from very early in his life, always shared my food and dinners with me. There really wasn’t much use in trying to make him stop, and I never really thought eating some human food would harm his health, more than brining him joy. OF course, today I kick myself and wonder… wonder if his human diet contributed to his stroke… and his early and untimely passing. AS if my shoulders are full enough, already.

.

Our next video is of Alexander sharing some curly fires with me from Arby’s. Now, he always ran off with them but I don’t really think he ate them much. Whenever I would clean out his home there was always tons of curly fires for me to clean out.

.

.

For our next video of this homage we have Alexander learning that au jus is hot!

.

.

And another of Alex rebuilding his home…

.

.

The pain, in my neck… down my arms and into my hands and shooting into my face and neck, have increased… drastically since I started writing this article (well, this final draft). Unfortunately, I am going to have to wrap this up quickly… and hope to ADD editions over the upcoming weeks. More editions to share images of Alexander… and more stories from his short life. My Dearest Shoevians Alexander was only with me for two short years… it felt like a lifetime.

.

In that short time he constructed a place in my heart. He will always be with me, in my thoughts, in my heart and in my mind and works! That’s right Alexander R. Hanning is reborn in my works ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’. As is; Nakita, Nadia, and Alexander. These are/were my children taken from me all too soon. Below is the final video of this article. Now, I am crying again… and I still have to upload the article, edit, embed videos, and publish. It is now 2:24PM PDST and I am hoping to have this article available for everyone to read by 5PM Central time.

.

Thank you for dropping by and your visit, today. I look forward to seeing you, My Dear Shoevians, back here often. Please, remember Alexander R. Hanning for what he gave to all of us.

.

Thank you!

The Rebirth and Re-Launch of The Other Shoe

                     Welcome back My Dear Readers Shoevians to The Other Shoe. This article is my first written work in, well, many months. The world just keeps moving, as it did during my hiatus. Just recently I lost my best friend and constant companion, Alexander R. Hanning. His passing shook me to my very core and left me reeling for days. Alexander had a stroke March 27th, 2015. For the next two weeks I kept him at my side, cared for his every need and fed him Ensure and baby food.

.

He really wanted to hang in there, to stay at his Daddy Daniel’s side, for as long as possible. I will talk more about Alexander, his life’s work, and his end struggle later this week in my homage. This coming Sunday I hope to publish a final ‘Sunday Funnies – Homage to Alexander R. Hanning’. I will share his final videos, which remain unpublished, his final images and the time we spent together prior to his passing. Alexander was; a source of strength, a genuine friend, an inspiration and my muse for many works. His role in my upcoming works ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’ will be greatly expanded due to his larger-than-life role in my real life.

.

After much soul searching and discussions with Allen, I have brought my battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma to an end. I have put my oncologist on the backburner and scheduled my next office visit for October. For all of you, My Dearest Shoevians, which have not faced cancer, the battle takes everything out of your life. We lost thousands of dollars of potential income, right at our birthdays, our 27th anniversary, and the Holiday season. Time, events, and treasure I will never regain, and is sorely lost.

.

Writing this, just now, I am seeing (for the first time) my level of personal loss. Oh, don’t get me wrong… I have known my loss. My lost income, my lost time and my loss of life and love. It is just, well… writing about it here, today, brings me face-to-face with my losses. Today, I end one of these losses by returning to writing and publishing here at The Other Shoe.

.

Now, My Dearest Shoevians, I am going to be completely honest upfront. I will not be capable of producing the amount of content, articles, here at the beginning. First, I am going to undertake a search for a new ‘look’ for the blog. The site at Word Press will remain the same for the time being. So, this change will just take place at the Blog.com location. I am looking to rekindle the Shoevians that were/are my regular readers. However, I am looking to expand my readership with any/all means possible. What you can look forward to?

.

You can look forward to; ‘The Mars Report’, ‘Lost in Space’, Sunday Funnies’ (changed due to the loss of Alexander R. Hanning), A Week in Review’ and “News From around the World’. I have several new article series that I plan on rolling out, over the next several weeks. Of course politics and the upcoming Presidential election will be featured over the coming months. For those that think they ‘know’ who I will write in favor and who I will choose to trash? “You don’t know!”

.

This is a very important election for many reasons. The most important for our nation is Income Inequality! The candidate that (honestly) champions genuine income redistribution (as suggested by Pope Francis) will curry my favor. We, Americans/America, are deeply entrenched in an “economy of exclusion”[1]. Pope Francis, recently, m et with executives from United Nations Agencies, Funds and Programmes. Here is an excerpt from their discussions:

.

“Future Sustainable Development Goals must therefore be formulated and carried out with generosity and courage, so that they can have a real impact on the structural causes of poverty and hunger, attain more substantial results in protecting the environment, ensure dignified and productive labor for all, and provide appropriate protection for the family, which is an essential element in sustainable human and social development. Specifically, this involves challenging all forms of injustice and resisting the “economy of exclusion”, the “throwaway culture” and the “culture of death” which nowadays sadly risk becoming passively accepted.”[2]

.

I strongly feel that, regardless of your political leaning, income inequalitypovertyrampant hunger among CHILDREN in America… and the repeated financial attacks (by Congressional Republicans) on; Food Stamps, Social Security Benefits, Social Security Disability Benefits, Veterans Benefits, Homeless Veterans Benefits, and like programs. America must belly-up to the table and honestly discuss the obvious attack(s) on the; poor, seniors, and the disabled.

.

So, My Dear Shoevians, I am publishing this article today (April 13, 2015) as a precursor to the rebirth and Re-Launch of The Other Shoe! I will not shy away form the issues of our time. I will not pull any punches, and I will do my level best to DOCUMENT every fact and factoid I will share over the months and years to come. As always, I put honesty above popularity and the credibility of my blog above traffic reports.

.

So, if you are just looking for some one0sided political fodder for your Facebook postings? The Other Shoe is not your place to read. However, if you have grown tired of obvious fodder and pandering. If you are not just another rhetoric parrot then, maybe… just maybe The Other Shoe is the place for you.

.

I look forward to seeing you all here as I work (hard) to return The Other Shoe to its former glory, and traffic. I just know that these ‘times’ will give me fodder. I am just hoping that my health, my strength and my resolve can match the intensity of these times.

.

Thank you!

.

Adieu!

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. My love for Alex knows no bounds. Alex’s love for me, knows no bounds. So long as I am alive Alexander R Hanning will live a blessed life. He will want for nothing and spend his days; eating, playing, and sleeping beside his Daddy. He is a wonderful young rat, and his time with me has been special.

.

Here is, yet another, video of Alexander R Hanning building/repairing/ improving one of his many homes.

ENJOY!

A Week in Review – September 14th, 2014

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Welcome to this edition of ‘A Week in Review’ for the week of September 7th, 2014. I managed to write and publish a few articles, in spite of the debilitating conditions that plagued my week. I thank everyone that has stood beside me, and continued to visit and read.

.

With little to say, my mind is wracked with doubt and concern, I will just jump headlong into this review. Without further adieu, I give you ‘A Week in Review’!

.

  • Sunday Funnies – September 7th 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. If it is Sunday? Then it is time for ‘Sunday Funnies’! This week Alexander R Hanning is busy at work building yet another ‘Home’ away from his two story condo. I found a nice cardboard box, placed it on my bed, and gave him old pajamas and torn up paper to play with. This video is a little bit of the ‘construction’ Alex engaged in getting the box turned into a home!” Alexander has returned for another visit, and another great video, here for our enjoymnent at The Other Shoe. Alex continues to build, and build and build on his many homes and residences. As Aelxander builds, I will make videos and share them with you, My Dear Readers.
  • Lost In Space – Saturn: “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Today we take the series of ‘Lost In Space’ to our celestial cousin, Saturn. Saturn… muse to millions of astronomers over centuries of time. The true ‘Lord of the Rings’ in our solar system, with no compare, no second place and no competition. Since I was a very young boy Saturn has captured, and held, my attention. The second largest planet in our solar system, this mighty Jovian lords over all other planetary bodies circling our star, Sol.” Without missing a beat, I write and publish another edition of ‘Lost in Space’ the ‘Tour of our Solar System’! Coming, later this week, will be another edition. This one will feature Jupiter!
  • Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund – Porta-Cath Video : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. As many of you are aware, I am currently engaged in a battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Cancer. As well, I am running a ‘Cancer Treatment Funding Campaign’ @ Indiegogo. This campaign is to help with some of the costs associated with my treatment, medications, and paying for a caregiver’s time off from work. I have agreed to not make this campaign, or my cancer, a focus of this blog. Therefore, I am merely going to introduce, and publish this video… and let it speak for itself.” Out of shame, and even self-disgust, I had declared that I would “no longer report on my condition”. I have broke to give this one update. I kind of enjoyed writing about my adventure with Cancer… and the whole ‘process’. But, I had some people complain… and not contribute… so I decided to not write or publish about my cancer… my care… my battle.
  • Notes From Behind the Keyboard – September 14th, 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. I want to thank everyone that has dropped by, this past week. As my treatment has gone forward, my writing has gone backward. I just do not feel up to writing, in between puking. I am writing this article, ‘Sunday Funnies’ and a brief ‘A Week in Review’ today. Then I am going to get some more much needed rest. I am writing this article, first, so that I can get something off my chest.” With only days left I have made a difficult and life-changing decision. I will no longer go for treatment for my cancer. This week… Allen’s check(s) dropped from $200 to $300 a week (each) to LESS THAN $60 EACH! You see, My Dear Readers, THIS was the source of my concern. I can go and battle my cancer, with Allen helping me: get into and out of my power chair, get into and out of scanning devices, got into and out of gurneys and end up unable to pay my rent! Or, conversely, I can stop treatment and have enough to pay my rent. EASY DECISION! DONE!!!

.

With that, My Dear Readers, we come to the end of this edition of ‘A Week in Review’. I hope that everyone has enjoyed this article… enjoyed the work I was able to finish, this week… and enjoy coming to visit and reading. Seriously? I am pretty amazed that I was able to write and publish these five or six articles. I had hoped to bring you a review of ‘The Horror in Smithville’ but my health did not allow that venture.

.

My Dear Readers, I ask you to consider… again… donating to my Cancer Treatment Fund at Indiegogo. As I have explained, without your help I am forced to stop my treatment. WITH your help? I can go forward with my treatment and care. It really is just that simple, and that life-threatening. At every turn I have provided proof and documentation of my cancer.

.

There can be no reasonable doubt that I have Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Those that would proffer that I do not? Well, I can only guess that they wish to do me harm. There is a great sickness, in our nation. I have written about it often, and warned you, My Dear Readers, if it’s poisonous influence. I can only assume that this poisonous influence has reached, and infected, many good people that, would otherwise, reach out and help.

.

That brings us to the end of this edition of ‘A Week in Review’. I would like to thank all of you for dropping by, and reading and visiting. Have a great and productive week, and come back soon!

.

Adieu!

Thank YOU!
