    I had no Idea Kyle’s defense attorney interviewed Gaige Grosskreutz, via Zoom. Gaige was so drunk during the Zoom session, he fell off the chair. Kyle doubles over laughing.

    MSNBC just doesn’t get it, do they? I hope they get sued off the air into North Korea…..

      What liars. Bernhard Goetz did it first, Al.

    • Constance says:

      Antifa and BLM crossed state lines to riot all the time. They were bused in to DC on Jan 6th and they had to come from some state if they arrived on buses so BFD! Do Progressives think there is some law that says only conservatives can’t cross state lines to protect and protest?

      May this be the turning point. Don’t these Black Supremacists realize that Democrats are the ultimate White Spremacists? I mean, Democrats always had the KKK branded on their hearts, If they did not, they would not be so power hungry.

    • lateblum says:

      They’re taking their cues from Bernie Sanders. He’s given the Marxists and Communists the go-ahead to buy more and more houses. One can never have enough.

    Good Morning.

    Wonder if it’s true.
    Gates (according to this) pushed DTPa vaccines in Brazil. Hundreds of children born with microcephalia later attributed to zika. The disease did not spread as one would assume with a mosquito transmitted virus. I am having difficulty searching for a news source that I am familiar with that is carrying the story. I dislike Gab because there seems to be a plethora of drive by postings there without any links. However, the number of rumors concerning Gates and vaccines are too many to ignore (India, Africa). Also I’d think a burst of the condition if it occurred naturally would not simply disapoear within a few months.

    will this be a weekend of dem Kristallnacht? remember NAZI was a national socialist. with dem pissboys on the media egging it on more buildings, businesses will be destroyed. Itthe future of America. God help us

    I’ve been thinking about what kind of “teacher advice” I’d give Kyle Rittenhouse. His family spokesperson says Kyle wants to become a nurse. I think I’d suggest he adopt his mother’s maiden name for awhile and enroll in nursing school at a large university in a red state. Most colleges will respect a child of divorced parents’ choice to register for classes under either parent’s name as long as the student uses a legal name for school issued documents that become permanent. I know this because one of my student’s last name was associated with a crime her father committed. She went through college on her mom’s name and planned her wedding for before graduation instead of after. Marriage is a free of charge name change for both partners. 😉 But a jumpstart to anonymity might be a good thing for awhile. When he establishes himself, he can decide to ease back into Rittenhouse. While the circumstances were very different, my son delayed starting college a semester until his hair grew back in because he was tired of being the ”cancer kid”. Eventually, he shared his experiences with his friends at school, but he wanted just to be “normal” for while.

    • votermom says:

      Didn’t know that about names – interesting

      • elliesmom says:

        The college let my student use her mom’s maiden name because it appeared on her birth certificate so it was still traceable back to her. She couldn’t register as ‘jane doe”. But her degree needed to be issued to her legal name. She was at Boston University, but the registrar said it was not an unusual request.

    • Somebody says:

      I didn’t know that about names, using his mother’s maiden name would be a good idea. He could also legally change his name.

      Just picking a school in a red state isn’t good enough. Most schools are liberal even in red states. University of Alabama for instance is a liberal bastion. There are some smaller schools that lean more conservative, but all the big ones are very liberal except Liberty University. He can get a nursing degree lots of places, that’s a fairly common degree.

      Actually, better yet why not take his basic classes online and obtain his AA. That would allow time for the publicity to die down.

      • swanspirit says:

        We have two great nursing programs here on the Eastern Shore. One is a community college LPN to RN program, and another is a BS degree program at the University. He would be welcome here on the Shore. 🏖🏖🏖 And he could go to the beach in the Summer.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I thought of Liberty too. My son’s done quite well with his degree from Pfeiffer University in Misenheimer, NC 🙂 Pretty little campus in the boonies between Charlotte and Greensboro. The biggest school sport was Lacrosse and he got to play all 5 years (cough, extra year was needed, cough 😉 ) He’s almost 50 and still playing in an over-40 league, and I still worry, he’s already had one knee replacement. Damn these kids. As I recall, he was dating a nursing student, so I’m sure even small schools have programs.

      • elliesmom says:

        Small schools can be more nurturing than large ones if you’re someone that fits their profile of who gets nurtured. If you don’t, you’re SOL. Large schools don’t guarantee anonymity, but it’s easier to get lost if you want to. I wouldn’t recommend going to school online for him. He needs a bigger life than he’d get sitting behind a computer. My understanding is some of his family is moving away with him. Tucker is having him on his show Monday night. I think it’s a bit exploitive, but hopefully he’s getting paid well, and at least Carlson is supportive and has kids in that age range.

        • Angie says:

          Thank you for saying you find Tucker interviewing him Monday exploiting. I do too.
          Worse, is one of the conditions tied to some of Kyle’s legal fees fundraising was allowing a camera crew from Tucker’s show to follow him around this last year. Tucker announced the documentary’s release less than 5 minutes after the verdict. I find that extremely exploiting.

          This kid is only 18 now. He was severely traumatized the night of the shootings (although he held up under pressure wonderfully & really demonstrated great trigger control & gun safety). And for the last year the government put him through hell on top of that. The lunatic left are rapid but there are plenty of wolves in sheep’s clothing in the right, imo.

          I’ll say it agian: if the authorities in WI from the governor to the Kenosha mayor had not bent the knee to the violent commie thugs & stood down, a 17 year old wouldn’t have had to be out there literally putting out fires & defending his life from attacks by pedophile rapists, woman beaters & thieves.

          • Mothy67 says:

            I get where you are coming from, but someone was going to run a special on the trial. I know you’re not a fan of Tucker. Who would be better? He will get a huge audience. People will hear and see. If it gives him financial freedom to attend school, move, not worry. Not like he can work part time anywhere flipping burgers.
            Not worrying about money will be a relief. Lawsuits take years.

          • lyn5 says:

            Totally agree with you.

    • lateblum says:

      Funnily, I was thinking the same thing about using his mother’s maiden name for him as well as for his entire family. While their faces as well as their names are familiar by now, they could all use a fresh start. Relocating could be a good thing for everyone. I’m not certain any of them are physically safe where they now reside.
      I hope they can ultimately be accepted wherever they choose to live – whatever surname they use. Their lives have been so damaged by all this.
      Btw, I didn’t realize using a mother’s maiden name was a relatively common thing to do for people who needed to protect their anonymity. You are always a fountain of information, em. 💕

      • 1539days says:

        It’ll take time. If he tries to enroll the the maiden name thing this spring (or even fall), MSNBC will doxx him on the next show. I’d wait until after the 2022 elections when they’re busy lambasting the American people for voting out Democrats in Congress.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Tucker’s got the first Kyle interview, I think he said Monday night?

      • lateblum says:

        I wish Kyle would not go on any shows for now. He will likely be scorned and mocked and targeted with more hate than he has already felt. His family has been maligned. Don’t they all need a break? I know I won’t be watching.

  12. helenk3 says:

    thought this sounded good

  13. helenk3 says:

    why is it not reported that kyle rittenhouse was asked to go and help protect a car business? the dem pissboys make it sound like he was a kid looking for excitement when he went to Kenosha..

  14. helenk3 says:

    surprise, surprise not. there would have been rioting even if he had been found guilty. any excuse to loot and burn. the sun is out today lets go riot.

    • Constance says:

      My friend talks of this fantasy of perching on a building above the usual riot zone and darting rioters with a paralyzing drug using darts. I can see her vision and it’s pretty funny the way she describes it.

    Happy Saturday dear friends. ❤

  30. Dora says:

  31. lateblum says:

    The following is a report on Justin Blake, the cousin of Jacob Blake whose kidnapping attempt led to his shooting by the Kenosha PD which I turn led to the “mostly peaceful” protests in Kenosha where Kyle Rittenhouse defended himself against the criminals who tried to destroy the town.

    This man has been interviewed by National and local news stations trying to drum up even more hate and violence. Oddly enough, Jacob Blake’s mom has not been as outspoken as her ex-husband. Nor has she encouraged anything but peace in the aftermath of the shooting.

    It’s interesting that none of the tv news hours nor the newspapers have sought her out. At least not to my knowledge. They seem to rely on those who can stir up the most noise and drum beating. I wonder what this weekend will bring.

    this might be of more help to the US than targeting parents DOJ

  35. lyn5 says:

    When I made my mammogram appointment, I was asked if I was vaccinated. If I were to get vaccinated, I was told that I would have to wait six weeks before I could have the mammogram. Here’s why:

    From CDC:


    If you are due for a mammogram and have been recently vaccinated for COVID-19, ask your doctor how long you should wait after vaccination to get your mammogram. People who have received a COVID-19 vaccine can have swelling in the lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy) in the underarm near where they got the shot. This is more common after booster or additional doses than after the primary vaccination series.

    This swelling is a normal sign that your body is building protection against COVID-19. However, it is possible that this swelling could cause a false reading on a mammogram. Some experts recommend getting your mammogram before being vaccinated or waiting four to six weeks after getting your vaccine.

    • elliesmom says:

      I live in a town on the CT border. There’s only one town between the MA border and my house. The closest Walmarts to me are both out of state. When I lived in MA, we often drove to “tax-free New Hampshire” to shop. One stop at the state liquor store paid for the gas, and we didn’t drink that much. Many of my RI neighbors work in CT or MA. Is it because so many people live in much bigger states where any stateline could be several hours drive that people are making such a big deal out of it? I could have breakfast in RI, stop for a morning snack in MA, get lunch in NH, and have time for a nap before getting an early dinner in ME. I could take a side trip to VT and still get to ME in time for a late supper. RI to LL Bean in Freeport ME and back is a day trip.

      • 1539days says:

        That reminds me of an engineer I work with who had to go to France for business. He told a colleague he wanted Italian food, so they went to Italy.

      • swanspirit says:

        I live less than 5 minutes driving time from (no sales tax) Delaware. And about 40 minutes driving time from Virginia. That’s why it’s called the DelMarVa Peninsula. We cross state lines all the time. When I was doing home care nursing, there were some homes in my State, Maryland, that I had to drive out of state, and then back in, to get to them.
        We drive to Delaware all the time to shop, and to Virginia too. No big deal at all.

        • 1539days says:

          Delaware is a couple of states over for me. We went to see relatives. I was surprised when we went to Taco Bell and paid the amount that was on the menu board.

      • jadzia1971 says:

        I’m pretty sure that Vancouver, Washington wouldn’t exist but-for the convenience of living in a town with no state income tax and being able to drive five minutes over the Oregon border to shop in a town with no state sales tax.

        My wokest family member just moved back to Portland “now that she’s vaccinated” (she was overseas for a long time) and is weirdly excited about muh 14 day quarantine and I am finding it difficult to even worry too much about her neighborhood’s proximity to last night’s riots because my give a damn’s busted, even for people I otherwise care about.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I cross state lines every time I go to the office in Virginia and return home to Maryland and so far there are no border patrols checking passports at the bridge over the Potomac on the beltway. And the D.C. metro runs right over those state lines in every direction and many people who work in this area commonly commute from Delaware, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

      • 1539days says:

        My company works with one that’s on the Canadian border. Many employees cross the border every day for work there.

        • lateblum says:

          Even with the Canada’s covid regs ? How did they manage that?

          • Ann says:

            If you worked in the US and lived in Canada (or vice versa), the border was never closed for you. I have a friend that got out of work at 4, and had xx time to get to the border after work. (Suburb of Buffalo to Ft Erie)

            It was never closed to truckers. And, if there was “a good reason “ you could cross. One of my husband’s tenant’s sons had a heart attack (He lives in Toronto, she lives in a suburb of Niagara Falls,NY). She went over for a few weeks to take care of him.

            The border was basically closed for pleasure trips… shopping, tourism, etc.

      Brad Geyer @BradGeyer

      She is literally being beaten in a sick, sadistic manner that frankly shocked me as someone who was in LEO for 21 years. Another metro cop is situated above her and other trapped protestors and he is spraying pepper spray in the faces of all these protestors that are trapped.

      The supervisor (we call him “white shirt”) takes his baton and starts spearing the woman in the eye with it. Jamming her with full force in the face. She turns her head ans he jams the back of her head and ear. He then is punching her in the face…

      White shirt is later doing reach arounds her face and and seeming to be trying to pull her eyeballs out of her nose off. We are seeking to identify this woman. The tapes are under seal but if you know of a woman who was grievously injured in the tunnel with face…

      Isn’t that Roseanne Boyd or was there another woman that was beaten like that?

      Another woman. Rosanne was either dying at the same time this was happening or dead already, but both incidents happened at the same place.

    So the government is now sending me hectoring emails pestering me to get vaccinated. Although I would love to tell them exactly where they can put that syringe, they have configured their system so that the plebes can’t get uppity and talk back.

    • lateblum says:

      What more proof does anyone need to see this is less about healthcare and more about govt control. My hope is that you can remain vax-free without penalty. 💕
      I’m waiting for the same thing here. I finally have my first appt with my new PCP on Tues. I have no idea what she is like. She is new to the practice (system). But the first question every one of the doctors in this system asks is about vaccine status. Then the urging to get vaxxed follows. I don’t know if they are heading toward cutting patients loose who are unvaxxed. I hope not. My oncologists are part of the same system. I have to fill out a questionnaire online before I arrive Tuesday noon.
      Sending 💕

      • 1539days says:

        The hospitals started doing it because the demand for health care temporarily outpaced supply of providers. In a medical practice, their business depends on patients. I doubt they’ll kick patients out very soon.

      • jadzia1971 says:

        Ugh, seriously? My response, realistically, would be smile and nod, smile and nod.

        I am also in the process of changing providers, from Suburban Smuggerina, M.D. (who ALWAYS has an unsolicited opinion about how I’m Doing It Wrong in pretty much every situation and whose contribution to my overall health has been to put in an IUD that left me sobbing on my kitchen floor in pain during the first lockdown, when everybody was being told NOT to go to the hospital) to a doctor who is in the closest thing we have to a “no-go zone”. The slum doctor is the guy I went to when I had the flu or whatever it was last summer and didn’t say shit to me when I declined a Covid test–he just treated me. And he treated me like an adult, which was nice.

        • elliesmom says:

          My doctor’s take on things is that if I get vaccinated, I’m adding the risk of potential side effects of the vaccine to my danger. If I get covid, at my age I have a 98.5% chance of survival. Most of the people 70 and over who die from covid were not healthy enough to walk a dog 2 miles everyday rain or shine so she believes my survival rate probability is higher than the 98.5%. I also don’t reside in a nursing home. She will vaccinate me if I ask her to, but no pressure. It’s a roll of the dice with the dice in my hands and the odds in my favor.

          • jadzia1971 says:

            And that is exactly, IMO, how people should be making the vaccination decision. You talked to your doctor and assessed your personal risk and ultimately it was up to you. It is unbelievable to me that the state is interposing itself into this relationship. IIRC Justice Blackmun saw Roe v. Wade as almost more of a doctor’s-rights case than anything else for exactly this reason.

    • 1539days says:

      Everyone is eventually going to get COVID. If they don’t get Delta, they’ll get some other version that combines with the flu. Countries with 90%+ vaccination rates still have infections because the vaccine is leaky and doesn’t actually produce immunity.

      • foxyladi14 says:


      • elliesmom says:

        The natural trajectory of a virus is to become more easily spread and less lethal. If a virus kills its host, it dies, too. The variants that don’t are the ones freer to move on and infect someone else. Lots of someone elses the less lethal it gets. It shouldn’t require a PhD in virology to see the basic logic in how that works, but so many people don’t take the time to listen and think. Fear has taken over like zombies eating brains.

        • 1539days says:

          Whatever degree Fauci has certainly isn’t helping him.

          The most deadly diseases are Rabies and Ebola. With Rabies, you actually have to be bitten. There’s a vaccine, but if you don’t get it immediately, your survival chances are the inverse of COVID. Ebola requires contact with blood or similar bodily fluid. They’re hard to get and frequently go dormant.

      How many people could have been saved by therapeutics?

      • SHV says:

        The current “vaccines” are, at best, therapeutics. I have seen three recent studies where the “vaccines” have a modest “preventive” effect that lasts 60-90 days. Seems that the definition for vaccine “success” keeps moving, now set at “lowers” death rate in high risk groups. Mandates and especially injecting children is insane based on current data.

        • lateblum says:

          It’s the vaccination of the little ones that I fear more than anything. Children have no say in their health care beyond telling grownups they don’t feel well or are in pain. I probably should read more positive reports about the Covid vax. but I don’t see it as anything other than propaganda to enforce greater and greater control over We, the People. Regardless of where We live.

    I took Ellie walking earlier today than I usually do this time of year on a Sunday, but I wore a bright yellow jacket and kept to the streets. Turkey season is in the spring here, but the hunters are out in full force for pheasant and quail. You can’t hunt deer with a shotgun yet, but you can with crossbows or muzzleloaders. Lots of small animals are “in season”, and you can shoot a coyote on private property year round.

    My oldest brother is the only one of us who became a hunter. As a teen he and his friends in the high school gun club used to shoot rats at the dump for target practice. Every year the gun club went on a field trip to hunt deer. When he was in his 60s, he and the same friends rented a cabin and went deer hunting together every year. He and I were 12 years apart and went to the same high school. By the time I got to high school, there was no gun club, but kids still went to the dump to shoot rats. Somehow I think having the gun club made us all safer. Someone obviously did a good job training Kyle Rittenhouse. He didn’t point a gun at anything he wasn’t planning to shoot, and he didn’t miss. Unlike the prosector who pointed a gun at the jury with his finger on the trigger.

    How grandchildren perceive their grandparents
    1. I was in the bathroom, putting on my makeup, under the watchful eyes of my young granddaughter, as I’d done many times before. After I applied my lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, “But Grandma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!” I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye….
    2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 72. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, “Did you start at 1?”
    3. After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, “Who was THAT?”
    4. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like. “We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods.” The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, “I sure wish I’d gotten to know you sooner!”
    5. My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, “Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?” I mentally polished my halo and I said, “No, how are we alike?” “You’re both old,” he replied.
    6. A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather’s word processor. She told him she was writing a story.
    “What’s it about?” he asked.
    “I don’t know,” she replied. “I can’t read.”
    7. I didn’t know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me and was always correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, “Grandma, I really think you should try to figure out some of these colors yourself!”
    8. When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, “It’s no use Grandpa. Now the mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights.”
    9. When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, “I’m not sure.” “Look in your underwear, Grandpa,” he advised “Mine says I’m 4 to 6.” (WOW! I really like this one — it says I’m only ’38’!)
    10. A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, “Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today.” The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. “That’s interesting.” she said. “How do you make babies?” “It’s simple,” replied the girl. “You just change ‘y’ to ‘i’ and add ‘es’.”
    11. Children’s Logic: “Give me a sentence about a public servant,” said a teacher. The small boy wrote: “The fireman came down the ladder pregnant.” The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. “Don’t you know what pregnant means?” she asked. “Sure,” said the young boy confidently. ‘It means carrying a child.”
    12. A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dog’s duties.
    “They use him to keep crowds back,” said one child.
    “No,” said another. “He’s just for good luck.”
    A third child brought the argument to a close. “They use the dogs,” she said firmly, “to find the fire hydrants.”
    13. A 6-year-old was asked where his grandma lived. “Oh,” he said, “she lives at the airport, and whenever we want her, we just go get her. Then, when we’re done having her visit, we take her back to the airport.”
    14. Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good things, but I don’t get to see him enough to get as smart as him!
    15. My Grandparents are funny, when they bend over, you hear gas leaks and they blame their dog.

      that was such fun!!
      I’d like to add another one to this. . .

      One time, I had my first grandgirlie over, we were looking through an online catalog for feather dusters (that I had promised her for her third birthday). I asked her to pick some of the colors that she liked and to name them for me so I could write them down.. (I thought I’d order a couple of them as birthday presents.) So she did. As she sat on my lap, she pointed to a few of the colors she liked and I asked what their names were. So she said, “This one is Harry. This is Susan. This is Tallulah.” So funny!

      When I called the company to order the feather dusters in orange, yellow. pink, teal and peacock blue, I shared the story with the woman taking the order. Together we had a laugh at my little one’s charming response. When the order arrived, the woman who had taken the order had included a note Saying she had included “Harry, Susan, and although it was a little difficult, she had found Tallulah” We still have those feather dusters. And I saved the note and gave it to her mother and daddy to save with her baby things.

      There was just an update regrading the Waukesha Christmas Parade tragedy given by the sheriff. Roads are closed to all traffic. People needing to return to their homes must park in certain areas, show proper identification to authorities who will then accompany the residents to their homes. those people were to then “remain in place” until the roads were reopened. It sounded like they named the public school in that area as a gathering place for people who were looking for missing family members. and the sheriff said he would not be providing numbers of fatalities or injured to the press until all had been identified and all families had been notified of their loved ones’ status.
      It sounds like there were many who had been killed. I hope I’m wrong.

    Interesting. Ski resorts are opening without vaccine passport. I had heard that there was going to be some bullshit like “You can ski but not go on the lifts,” like they did last year, but apparently not. Yet. And I am seeing hotels now noting in their covid section that purebloods are barred from restaurant/bar/terrace, but not from the actual rooms, which is also different from what we were told when this thing was introduced last summer. Of course, now that I look it up, the “no hotel” thing has been memory-holed.

    We were thinking of doing an Air B&B at Christmas (mostly the H-man trying to cheer me up by taking me to the snow), but Grandma seems determined to wait until the very last minute to decide whether they will have Christmas at her house this year. And if I’ve got kids, I’m not going to an Air B&B when we can’t go out to dinner or do much of anything fun other than cross-country skiing (downhill is too expensive for me, especially with 5 kids who would need lessons). Because XC is fun for me but would certainly not be fun for them.

    I’m still depressed. I waited too long to go hard on exercise, which is what usually works when I feel the black dog begin to stalk me. Having trouble pulling myself out. I have two things to look forward to this week–an office renovation that I’ve been waiting for for MONTHS (supply chain problems and then availability of the artisans) and a trip to Costco. Plus Thanksgiving on Sunday with the Mormons. But i can still hardly get out of bed and if it weren’t for the kids, I wouldn’t.

    This reminds me of the most depressed I ever was in my life, back in the 90s. I was newly engaged and had been accepted to every law school to which I had applied–so living the dream. And all I could do was cry. Now, I’m at the top of my career, great guy, beautiful house, a pack of kids–everything i ever wanted and more than I ever thought I could have. So why do I feel so blue?

    • jadzia1971 says:

      Maybe I should concentrate on how hilarious it will be when Mr. “Raised in the Desert” tries to ski for the first time, if we do end up going. He went to high school and university and part of grad school in Lyon, so it won’t be the first time he’s seen snow, but it will be the first time he’s had to balance on sticks.

        I hope you read what eliiesmom wrote ⬇️. I’m having to do the same. I think the walk and getting some good light therapy can be helpful. Hugs and 💕

            Me too. What I should’ve said was that I hope you didn’t miss what elliesmom wrote. Because it was late in the thread from the previous day.
            I usually start reading TCH from day before and from the bottom to the top. Otherwise, I might miss the great comments and wisdom that are found here.

    Might you have SAD? Getting that diagnosis was a life changer for me. The treatment was changing a few light bulbs at home, a desk lamp at work, and a midday walk. It was easier than moving to the equator. 🙂
