Bird Waltzes

Male birds do the courtship dance

to get their mates.

Can’t say much about this ritual for humans

as to who does the courting.

Which maybe given rise to the expression—

this is just for the birds.

This deserves Happy Wishes

SO

Happy Easter

Happy Halloween

Happy Birthday

Happy New Year

And Happy Whatever

She Starts On!

This is for Sophie Gregoire Trudeau,

 Only for Sophie Gregoire Trudeau,

The Better Prime Minister.

I mean,  the better half

of the Prime Minister.

 

 

Ibuprofen Nixed

This tip comes straight from 

Vancouver Nurses :

Ibuprofen (from Advil)

makes the Covid-19

ten times more potent.

It escapes me how the nurses

could have ascertained that the patients

have ingested Ibuprofen.

Also

the syrup called Eucalyptin Lebrun

comes with codeine

which prevents local drug stores from carrying it.

They may have Eucalyptus oil or Black Elderberry Extract.

Ask the pharmacist first for advice.

But what the hey,

a good thing to remember is that

this virus must pass the throat to reach the lungs.

and also before it gets coughed up.

This tip comes from me :

upgrade the term Social Distancing

to Social Disciplining.

(you are responsible for what you ingest)

A Bug’s Life

A Bug’s Life

Laymen don’t lay eggs.

I am not a layman.

I don’t lay eggs.

Unless you consider this post as an egg.

But again I say, I don’t lay eggs.

If the coronavirus may be considered a bug, then this is its life.
I did ask the question “how does the virus kill people”.
From the facebook sharing by Monette Hayashi, it can be figured out the virus dries up the mucus in the lungs, resulting in the starvation of oxygen to the brain. This was found by autopsies done by the Chinese on people who died of the Covid-19.

So here we go—-when the lungs excrete mucus as a reaction against any irritation, (this time from the coronavirus,) they actually wrap the virus in preparation for disposal via coughing. Most of the virus are coughed out in mucus, some are in wet saliva or fluids, some are killed by the gastric juices in the stomach when the mucus is swallowed. But, if the lung muscles are not that strong to cough it out (as with old people), the virus remain in the lungs to proliferate. The virus dries the mucus which, aided by the respiration plus the aggravating action by ventilators, produced the annoying solid which we call snot(dried mucus).

As the virus proliferates, more irritants to the lungs result in more mucus secreted and thereafter more snot. The more the ventilators are used, the more snot is produced to cover up the lung surfaces. Doctors and nurses do not realize this. They are bent on keeping the patient alive, hence more oxygen is pumped in and more gas goes in to dry up the mucus. What should have been done is a no-brainer, and that is to get rid of the mucus. If the patient is old and is unable to cough out the mucus, then expectorants should be used. These are to be delivered either by mouth or through the ventilators. Pharmacologists may have a wealth of these phlegm expectorants in the line of eucalyptus and etc. This does remind me of eucalyptin lebrun, whatever that is or was.

Anyway, for serious cases, a tube may be inserted to the lungs, liquefy the dried mucus with expectorants, and pump it out. Or better still, kill this bug right at the throat or nostrils.

Social distancing?

You mean meeting by “bumping at each other”?

NAH!

Try winking at each other.

I find this more exciting

especially when that sexy one winks back!

Annual Bombardier Bailout

SO

Bombardier of Quebec

is slated to get bailed out again

by using Canadian Taxpayers’ money.

This bailout goes on every year.

This company is not profitable.

It employs 50% more people than necessary.

And these are paid 50% more than necessary.

The Canadian Taxpayers should buy them out

so that the people can decide where the plant/s

are to be located

and the employees to be hired.

This is another beef that the Western cows

are crying for.

No ownership, no bailout!

No Bombardier, no pain!

The Bombardier employees should be laid off 

and they should apply for unemployment insurance

just like everybody else.

(no absolute power for this Liberal Government which has proven to be spendthrift on anything and everything they can think of )

 

 

 

Chinese Rules of Prevention

Regarding the Covid-19 virus prevention

this is what the Chinese have learned,

from autopsies.

 and hospital procedures.

Listen well, no video here

just plain useful advice.

And next time, do not ignore…..

You may be good, highly-trained

well-educated doctors

in high positions

and high salaries

but you have to use your heads

sometimes.

And sometimes

we learn from guesses

and misinformation

like lime, lemon, and oranges.

How to secure Social distance

If you want to secure a safe social distance,

eat more gas-forming foods

like sweet potatoes and the like.

Ah, but you know what I mean…

More Covid-19 Questions

Here are more dumb questions

to be ignored by the smart doctors

that you watch on tv.

Firstly,

Of all the rules that were shouted on tv,

about washing your hands

and don’t touch your face;

why don’t they just say

wash your hands

and wash your face?

Secondly,

to declare success against this virus

are they just waiting for that time 

when the virus run out of weak people

to infect?

Thirdly,

why do these smart people demean

the wearing of masks

as it these do not prevent infection

at any single time?

Fourthly,

what may be the reason why

these smart doctors on tv

are unable to say that they do not know?

Why don’t they use forensics?

Autopsies should give them a good insight

of how the virus kills.

 

(dare the doctors to obtain emergency powers to secure compliance…)

De-crowning the Coronavirus Part 2

Decrowning the Coronavirus Part 2

The first thing I asked on the outset of this virus is whether it thrives in an acidic environment. This question was ignored twice. And so I left them to do their assumptions and presumptions to the point that what we have now is a complete supplication to the dictates of the virus. The general order of the day is now to let the people who will be infected be infected. And let the people who will die, die. As a result, the world is now approaching a complete isolation and ultimately a complete standstill. People are now afraid to move from where they are, which is a well stocked storage house that is slowly turning to a dreary cocoon.

But forget about the catching words and phrases of what this write up has started, I repeat, this is a guess which you should listen closely because I usually stick something with it which MAY BE worth your while.

Reports of the initial virus start dd not contain anything about its source or the cause. Was it started with an inhalation, an ingestion, or an inebriated excursion? It would have helped a lot if the cause was known very like the Black Plague where the rats could have been exterminated right aboard the ships. The carrier fleas could have been eradicated with sprays had it be known that they carry the plague.

Which brings us back to my question—does the virus thrive in an acidic environment? You may ask why I asked this question. well the reports say that the test for this virus consist of getting samples from the nostrils, the throats, and maybe the nasal passages, This proves that it is transferred by inhalation, not by injection or touch or even by having sex. It is therefore what was an old term for it which is a COMMUNICABLE DISEASE. This term was never used by any whichever doctor or physician or pharmacist even if the chances are it was started by contact.

This virus has the option of residing on the skin, eyes, limbs, heart, ears, brain,stomach, intestines would it have been a potent communicable virus, Instead we find it in the nose, throat, nasal passages and in the lungs where it does most of its destructive work. But why not the stomach when it can have the option of sliding thru the valve towards the esophagus? Well guess what, it may have gone thru to the stomach but that organ presents a more violent activity than the lungs, and primarily because the stomach has digestive enzymes that would present the virus with an acidic environment which proves fatal to the virus. Conclusively I can say that the Covid-19 cannot exist in an acidic environment.

Which brings us to what probably may be one thing to combat the virus—-acidity, or that which is inherent in citrus fruits like lime, lemon, oranges, and etc. the common table salt is also acidic, so does sea water. In such days like these we may not be able to go to the beaches to swim. Maybe use inhalers, vaporizers, sprayers instead. if the virus is already at the peak of its destructive work, the space within the lungs should be acidic to stop it before it causes the fatal damage. Acidic vapors may be inhaled or forced through towards the lungs.

How does the virus kill? Another question which was ignored. Does the virus kill by collapsing the lungs, or puncturing it, or by eroding it, perforating, eatng, shrinking? Whichever it may do would result in the person gasping for air. Shortness of breath means not enough oxygen is being produced by the lungs. This will not yet kill the person,. But what would kill the person is the lack of oxygen that goes to his brain. When this happens, the involuntary activities of the body stops. the heart will not pump blood and the lungs will not work. Everything stops. The brain is still cognizant for that moment but it is unable to send impulses to the spinal column.

And then the person realizes that he is already dead.

De-crowning the Coronavirus

It’s beginning to be deafening,

hammered over and over again,

this rule about washing your hands.

Tell that to the Italians

or to the Spaniards.

This is the wrong message

for these people

who greet each other

with hugs and kisses.

The right rule should be

“wash your lips!”

But what then will a body do

if he is 80 years old

and he feels the virus has taken hold of him?

The vaccine should cure him.

But it will be available later in 4 months

not within this 4 minutes

that should spell his life.

Hokay,

I will write down what I think

may be a good remedy for him.

Remember though that what follows next

will be a figment of my imagination

and should therefore not be treated

as gospel.

Treat it as a misinformation

or just just an absurd, funny suggestion.

In such a case, give me the benefit of

a commendation to the Entertainers Club.

(I will wait first for several hours more

before I proceed,

in case some learned health wizard

have the same idea as I do.

In which case he will get the credit

for the suggestion.)

Concerto in E Minor

Covid-19 Monotony

Much time is being devoted to this topic.

One is unable to watch anything else.

And the message is the same—

wash your hands keep your distance,

cover your mouth when sneezing or coughing,

stay at home in isolation,

go ahead and travel abroad,

but don’t ever come back if you did!

and so forth and so on.

Monotonous!

It is amazing though that the more

important things that people should know

are being omitted, or missed.

Things that the contaminated person

will be able to do or take to cure himself.

Perhaps another post here from me might

be able to suggest remedies or cure against

the Covid-19.

Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2

The ever popular Hungarian Rhapsody No.2

by Franz Liszt

is given a new twist by Vladimir Horowitz.

It is an arrangement actually not a twist.

What was accomplished is add to the original composition

variations of the theme by using the same bars

in some sequential and contrapuntal r4enditions.

You may at some points of the rendition recognize 

that the left hand is playing some bars while

the right hand is playing other bars at the same time.

But listen, anyway, and then get blasted at the finale.

Another thing to note is the piano used.

The tone sounds ljke a bell

with huge, whole and loud tones

that demand attention.

I am unable to read the brand name, though.

Covid-19

A very extensive and up-to-date report on this topic

can be found at WIKIPEDIA.

Go for it!

Scheherazade

Rimsky-Korsakov weaves a ballad to interpret

the “1001 and one Nights’

or more popularly named as “The Arabian Nights”.

This is a compilation of the stories titled Sinbad.

Alkladin, Ali baba, prince Kalender, and etc.

The main story goes that a woman, slated for execution,

narrated to the Caliph a captivating story each night.

As a result, the Caliph liked her tales so much that she

pardoned her and kept her as story-teller.

The woman’s name was Scheherazade,

and the tales are compiled and titled

“Arabian Nights.”

In this performance,

the violinist plays a theme to depict Scheherazade

as she begins another tale for the Caliph’s ears.

Visualize the Storm,the Young Prince and the Princess, and etc.

The film “Carnegie Hall”

presents us with the only video of Jascha Heifetz

Anyway, while you are busy watching the fingering

observe also the violin that he uses.

This must be a very, very expensive violin.

Because it talks.

Janine Jansen

the Lady In Red

plays the violin as passionately

as what is suggested by her favorite color :

RED.

Hers is the best rendition of Tchaikovsky’s

Violin Concerto No. 1

next to  the legendary Jascha Heifetz

whose performance of this concerto

is nowhere to be found in video format.

She presents, of course, the more attractive sight,

particularly when she wears red.

Tchaikovsky has made this piece

technically difficult to play)

 

The Real Canadian Superscore

The legal and logical endowment provided

by the Trudeau government towards the Wetsuweten Band

 still is insufficient to get something in return from its

Hereditary leaders who are still adamant on letting

the pipelines to go through.

It has now been discovered that the Band is at loggerheads

with each other, so much so that the Trudeau Government

 may have been negotiating with the wrong people

and that their efforts were for naught.

But since control of the specified land

has been transferred already,

  the burden of decisions

now goes to the Wetsuweten Band.

They should therefore decide between themselves

who will lead

and what to do with the pipelines.

So much bickering has been going on among the Indians,

to even  call themselves a nation.

As regards the blockades in the East,

the best thing to do is ignore them.

When they realize that will not get anything from the

agreement made by the Wetsuweten Band

they will  just break off.

As I said, it is just too bad for them that they do not have

oil resources in their Eastern part of Canada

to make as a bargaining chip with Canada.

Land Titles for WetSuweten Band

This is good for both the Band and for BC.

Land titles give sovereignty

and sovereignty provides authority.

So now this band controls what happens

to the area that the titles encompass.

But only on the area covered by the title.

The boundaries are definite and specified.

The oil companies will now have to ask permission

or negotiate with the band before any pipelines

are laid down or any oil well is drilled.

They can also tell the RCMP to bug off their land.

The ladies can now put up signs that say:

Bad looking RCMP’s are not allowed

Good looking RCMP’s will undergo

further negotiations first.

Of course,

the police patrol cars and the emergency vehicles

may be that busy when they are needed.

Also, the benefits of the land titles of the band

will not go to any other band

but the Wetsuweten band.

This land title will solve all the problems

about the pipeline and the RCMP

if the band uses it wisely.

Just follow the steps made by the Alberta Bands.

(now, do you believe me what I tell you?)

Indian Pow-wow Stalls

As expected, the talks between the BC Indians

and the Federal Ministers stalls.

I guess the Indian band is asking for something

that the Feds are unable to do,

and that is involve the other provinces on the 

proposed agreement.

As I said, this is a provincial matter, not Federal.

If the Aboriginals will consider themselves as a nation,

they must secure their borders and boundaries first.

As of now, the Indians are scattered all over the place

like mixed nuts.

Their situation is much similar to the African Americans

in the United States, in that they are inside the country

as Americans and not a nation.

Their best bet to get what they want is to INTEGRATE.

This way they can do something to benefit Canada

for a change.

Any BC deal or agreement involving Alberta

may be notwithstanding.
