Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

This title comes from the changes in simple thoughts today and this blog. I love those statements. They help me to focus on what I can do.

Last night I got a call from my health insurance nurses regarding my diagnosis as having COPD---not a good thing---but I am getting better slowly. My coughing has decreased significantly but I still cough more than I should. Anyway they call once a month and take me through all of these questions relating to my health. I have gained a significant amount of weight since I quit smoking a couple of years ago and so she went into depth questioning that. She said something like what do you attribute the weight to. I told her it was to the see food diet I am on. She was pretty confused and said why? I said because now when I see food I eat it---especially chocolate---then we laughed.....

Last night I got another call from a polling place. They went through a big speel and then said I need to interview an adult from your house. I responded "no adults live here" and hung up the phone......
