This is an odd one for me. Last Monday I went to the dentist for the first time in 25 years or so. There was good news and bad news; good news, my teeth are in pretty good shape, bad news, my gums are not. 

About a year ago, one of my bottom teeth began coming loose. I've learned how to eat with out biting. I eat everything with utensils, even pizza, a little odd, but it works. I haven't missed much. 

Basically, the dentist told me three other teeth are coming loose also, so they will have to come out. (sigh), I kinda thought maybe that was a possibility. So I'll have a four-tooth bridge in the bottom of my mouth when everything is said and done.

Sometimes I thought, if I let things go far enough, I'll just have 'em all pulled and get dentures, what the hell? Part of this could have probably been avoided if I had seen the dentist regularly, but money and insurance was a bit of a problem for a while. Be that as it may, people younger than me have worse problems with their teeth. Anyways, I'll keep you posted on how things go.

On a better note: I've finally figured out how to put graphics into this blog. Took me long enough. Thank you Google images. Now I can go back and put pics into some, most, all of my blog posts and make them more interesting? Here's a hook...keep checking back. Monday starts the blog for a week challenge, we'l see how it goes.

Lately I've been wanting to blog about something. I've had lots of ideas, some of them good. But I forget about them when I get in front of the computer, (frustrating). 

Today is Super Tuesday, 10 states have primaries. As I am writing this, Alaska hasn't even begun reporting yet. Each candidate has their strengths and weaknesses. The problem I see is that Washington has its own agenda and any candidate, when they get elected, will have to conform to the ways of Washington. Promises mean very little once you get in that culture and office.

Almost since it came out, and was available, I have been a part of Google+. I like it, it's like Facebook but different, a Google different. Anyways, I've picked up on a photography circle that has a lot of talent in it and I am always reminded of my own love of photography, and how I have missed it. Right now the only camera I have is my cellphone. It's ok, but quirky, as most cellphones are I guess. Maybe I should check out better camera apps for my phone.

Since it's 2012 there's a lot of talk of the 2012 Mayan Prophecy, what will happen on 12-20-2012? As for me, I'll keep it in mind, see what happens, I think that's all I can do. How many raptures have been predicted and come and gone? 

Well I will have to work on topics for the future and put them together in a coherent fashion for the future. Thanks for reading and being patient.
