    I’m sorry you’re sick. I got nothing either, except this creepy article in my local paper about how the local economy is picking up and all the merchants are singing, Zip-a-dee-doo-da. It’s a creepy article because it’s right out Orwell’s 1984 and the Dept of Truth. Half our homes are in foreclosure, half our shops are closed, and there’s not a single merchant anywhere who is “grateful for the upswing in the economy.” They pulled that out of their you know what.

    “Kickback” Ben Nelson (D, 70) won’t be running for reelection in ’12:

    Democratic Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska announced today he won’t seek re-election next year, a retirement hurting his party’s bid to keep its majority in the chamber.

    “It is time to move on,” Nelson, 70, said in a statement posted on his Senate website. He said he’s looking for “new ways to serve our state and nation.”

    Nelson, whose home state is predominantly Republican, is the seventh member of the Senate’s Democratic caucus to decide to retire ahead of November elections in which his party is defending a 53-47 majority in the chamber. A net gain of four seats by Republicans would ensure them Senate control, regardless of the outcome of the presidential race.

    A former two-term governor and state insurance commissioner, Nelson was the Democrat best able to defend the seat, said Jennifer Duffy, a senior editor of the non-partisan Cook Political Report.

    “There is no obvious Democratic replacement to Nelson,” she said in a telephone interview. “I don’t see a path to victory for Democrats in Nebraska,” so Nelson’s retirement “puts Republicans one seat closer to a majority,” Duffy said. With Nelson in the race, Republicans “were going to have to fight” to defeat him.

    Read the full article for more goodies like how he was likely to lose, was a casualty of Obamacare, and the like.

    Myiq, if you have been taking antibiotics for cellulitis you may want to eat yogurt with live cultures. For those who may not be aware… diarrhea is a common side affect of some antibiotics. Yogurt can help restore a healthy balance of the various bacteria that reside in the digestive tract.

    My late husband once spent a couple of days in the hospital getting antibiotics intravenously for pneumonia . He wasn’t home long before he ended up back in the hospital for about five days because of diarrhea and dehydration. I had to get an ambulance to haul him in since he was to weak to walk. It was pretty scary.

    Hope you feel better soon, if not, please don’t hesitate to get medical attention. Good to know that your mom is checking on you. If you get dehydrated you may need someone to take you in for an IV of saline solution.

    We really appreciate all you do for this blog, but taking care of yourself is #1.

    Rest and drink Gatorade even if you’re afraid to put anything on your stomach. Hope you’re better soon.

    Hope you feel better! Having a cold or flu over a holiday is a major bummer. Mine this year was over the Thanksgiving weekend. Take care!
