I need a big ol chunk of cheese with this "WHINE"!!
Yesterday afternoon I stopped by my mom's Assisted Living Facility to see how she was doing after they called to tell me she'd taken a fall . . .
Walking across the parking lot, I stepped over an unusually large speed bump - almost! I crashed down on both knees. By the time I got to her apartment my right knee was killing me.
Long story short, I ended up in Northside Hospital ER. Nothing broken, but my right knee looks like a black/blue/purple grapefruit is growing on it! And I have to wear a really ugly & uncomfortable foam knee splint that goes from my ankle halfway up my thigh.
When I finally got back to our apartment, I was faced with the fact that I live on the THIRD floor - no elevator, of course.
*whining loudly* Now where's my cheese?

Fast-growing China, shown here during a prolonged heat wave last year, is opening about one coal plant every day this year. Along with the U.S., China is one of the world's leading contributors to the greenhouse gases believed to be largely responsible for the increase in the Earth's temperature.
