Spring Colds @#$$$%%#@ Why?

If you’re like me and I hope you’re not, I get a cold every spring. It’s like a change of season switch goes off and my immune system with it. Is it the time change? , too much sunlight? I don’t know why, I just get one and I can almost set my watch to it. It only lasts three days because I take zinc when I feel it coming on. Day 2 is always the worst day, forget about moving, its a just lie there and die day. This year I got a bonus of Chuck Barkley dissing the big east college basketball conference with Rick Pitino sitting next to him, made me laugh while I was dying. I also died when Pitt was bounced out by an official. Nice Call. Not. I also ate random bad for me comfort food and soup. I Drank a boat load of juice also. Not sure why I get this cold, I read a few articles about seasonal stuff and it could be allergies. Here is the article I read when I was dying this weekend on day 2. http://www.symptomfind.com/diseases-conditions/seasonal-allergies/ . By day three I was my chipper self and off to my daughter’s birthday party.

If you do feel a cold coming on get some cold zinc stuff, it kills your cold in ½. Drink Juice, eat soup, and feeling like your dying on day 2 is fine. Just know that by day three you better get on with your life.

We need to Send Help to Japan.

We really need to save Japan, we need to do everything we can to help them. They have suffered  what can only be described as the worst natural disaster in modern memory. They are also about to have a nuclear reactor melt down. I read about the bodies washing up on the shore of Japan and I think that could be California, or Hawaii or Florida.  It’s Horrific, They are our Allies. We need to do what we can.

What can we do? , We can donate what we can. Here are three groups you can send money to.

!. Unicef,  http://www.unicefusa.org/

2. World Vision,  www.worldvision.org

3. Samaritanspurse,  http://www.samaritanspurse.org/

#klout should be out, how helpful are you should be in.

Warning this is a rant.

We should not worry too much about #Klout, We should worry more about being helpful online and moving everyone forward. I think that the niche pirates have had their moment. They jumped the gatekeeper, created their own games, made their money, published their books helped themselves and their families and created really good #klout scores. Fantastic! Now what? .

We still have poverty, hunger, high unemployment, a dysfunctional government, and a ravaged education system. We export almost nothing and import everything. We have a million trillion billion dollar deficit. But we have #klout scores.

What we do well now it appears is create ways to amuse ourselves. Is that really an export? Is it really important to figure out who or what you influenece online? Really?

How about we start measuring how helpful a person is online, what positive outcomes can that person be directly tied to. What world changing event did they usher in? How about a “that was helpful” button for twitter and facebook?

Here’s my last thought. Ashton Kutcher has a Klout score of 97. George Clooney 0.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there. – Rumi
