Skywatch Friday



A local school received a grant to work on wind power. It's a great way to earn energy credits and lower their electricity bills, but I chose this photo because of the pretty sky in the background.

I'm still having the awful migraines, so these new meds aren't doing the trick either. Looks like I'll be going to Michigan for their in patient treatment. It's a week-long program. Just waiting for the insurance to decide it's necessary since you know, a pencil-pusher knows sooo much more than a REAL doctor about medicine. :(

For more info on this fun meme, stop over at Skywatch Friday and learn all the details.

Hi Gretchen! The entire picture is beautiful. I love the blue sky with fluffy clouds.
Our Township had a windmill Ordinance that they repealed. Not a great idea when people are looking for alternative methods to save money and help the environment.
I cannot believe that you are still suffering with these migraines. I hope that stupid pencil pusher has some sense and listens to the doctor. Keep us updated. Lisa

I am sorry you are still suffering from head aches. It must be dreadful. I do not know what it is like. I cannot even remember ever getting one and certainly not a chronic one. I hope the treatment you hope to get is successful.

It is beyond my understanding that the Obama administration will not consider a National Single Payer Universal healthcare program which gets the insurance companies out of the medical insurance business.

Beside not having insurance companies deciding on what treatment you will get, such a plan is the only way to decrease the cost. Canada pays about 1/2 what the US pays for health care.

Well, crap! I can't find your email to reply back to your comment about the swap package I received. Dang it!
Anyway, you can go to Mamarazzi's blog and sign up for the next one when she has it. I think it'll be in the next few months, so keep an eye on her blog. I'll try to remember to let you know if I see it again too!
I hope you get some relief soon.

Lovely photo! I've never seen such an elegant wind turbine before. I think it's great that government is using alternative sorces energy.

Sorry about your migraine. I hope you feel better soon. No fun :(

But I hope you have fun at Gage's birthday party! :)
