Pure pH Balanced Water In Pflugerville, TX

Hello Pflugerville friends of Enagic.

Water covers over 70 percent of the earth’s surface and makes up 60 percent of the human body. Maybe that’s why water is used in many important human rituals. Christians are baptized in water, Buddhists use water during funerals, Jews cleanse hands and feet to maintain a state of purity, Muslims wash themselves at fountains outside Mosques before entering, and Hindus believe all water is sacred.

As a health-conscious Pflugerville resident, I want the water I drink and use in my daily rituals of brushing my teeth and cleansing my face to be as cherished as the water used in life’s spiritual moments.

I filter my Pflugerville tap water with my Kangen Water filtration system creating delicious, ionized alkaline water. Through innovative water technology developed in Japan I can produce water perfect for all my daily rituals.

I turn my Pflugerville municipal water into perfectly pH balanced drinking water with a pleasant sweet flavor. I also create acidic water which I use to wash my face and hair. I love how my face feels after a daily washing with Kangen water.

My name is Frank Robinson and I am an independent Enagic distributor. If you would like to enhance your daily rituals please contact me today. I would love to share more about the unique health benefits of Kangen Water.

Born Again American Video

Born Again American from Born Again American on Vimeo.


Tomorrow is my last day on the job with my current employer. I will certainly keep busy 'doing things' in the future, no lazin' around for me. I may even do work for pay in the future, but it will be under my control, and limited. I will certainly do some volunteer work, and will try to accomplish things that are not on anyone's budget, although they probably should be.

Truth or Hillary?

Recently, on the CBS Today Show, Lara Logan, CBS new Mexico City, interviewed Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton said,

"We have to recognize and accept, uh, that the demand for drugs in the United States drives them north, and the guns that are used by the drug cartels against the police and the military, uh, 90 percent of them come from America."

See this YouTube video.

I will agree with Mrs. Clinton that the demand for drugs is our contribution. However, most of these drugs can be produced for pennies, so the huge amounts of money involved is the result of several governments' policy of criminalizing these substances.

As for the ridiculous claim about "90 percent of [the guns] coming from the US", the fact is that the most powerful weapons the cartels are using (rocket launchers, automatic weapons) can't be purchased in any US gun store, and there has been no case of large-scale weapon smuggling south across the US/Mexico border.

Consider this. Juarez is one of the 'murder capitals' of the world, while El Paso, Texas, just across the river, has recently been named the number 1 safest large city in the US. The difference? US citizens have the right to keep and bear arms, and can defend their own homes against criminals. Mexican citizens don't.

10 Year Anniversary

Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of my triple-bypass surgery. I've been watching my cholesterol religiously, and going to see my cardiologist every 6 months since then. My heart is in great shape.

Since then, I've (1) finished an advanced degree, (2) had a new career, and (3) attended SXSW five (5) times. I've met a ton of new friends.

I have now decided to retire, so I can pursue other creative endeavors. I have a couple of building projects in the planning, plus fence fixing and/or building, tree trimming, and assorted landscaping jobs. That's just for starters. Frankie and I want to do some traveling, and I may do some writing and painting.

Interesting use for a blog

I probably should have been using this way before now, but I haven't been good.

I was reading back through my blog entries, and on the May 25th entry, I read about starting a fire on a tree stump on May 21. Then I realized "hey, this is when my current episode of back pain and sciatica started!" I've been asked that question by at least 3 doctors, and now I know for sure. (great use for a blog, tracking dates)

It always happens this way. First, I strain or stress my back, and it gets sore. Then, other things happen, and I make it worse, until I wind up flat on my back for a couple of days. That gets my attention. Then, I take aggressive action (pills, etc.) and am very careful until full function is restored. It's okay until the NEXT episode. This has been going on since 1983! I only remember 3-4 bad episodes, but maybe I'm blocking.

Since May 21, my mother passed away (June 30), we moved all her stuff out of her apartment (July 7-8), I went to my doctor (July 11), had 2 MRIs and an ultrasound (July 16), and saw a chiropractor (July 23, 25). Then I eased off on the treatment until sometime in September, when I went back to the chiropractor. My leg started really hurting during the last week in September, but I still sat up in a tree on October 2 for about 4 hours, and by October 7, I was flat on my back for two days of pure misery. I went to the emergency room on October 9, and got some prescriptions. It's only been the last three of days that I have gone off the Ibuprofen, which upsets my stomach terribly. I still have some back pain, but I'm taking it easy and doing lots of stretching, etc. I also have an inversion table, which I use daily.

I think I'm on the mend, but promise to not re-injure it more in the near future. I have been feeling so bad and tired lately that I decided to retire effective December 31, 2010. More about that later.

A Little Hitch

I created myself a problem just the other day. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 GNU/Linux, and the top panel wasn't showing me what I wanted to see, so I deleted it. I thought that it would be reinstated after I logged out or rebooted, but no, it wasn't. So there I am with a blank desktop, with just the bottom panel, which shows open programs, virtual desktops, and an icon to clear the desktop. Nothing to launch programs graphically.

The next day, I looked it up on the Internet, and read all about moving, resizing, adding and deleting panels, and how to add items to the panel. Last night, I created a new panel, then populated it with appropriate launchers, all by pointing and clicking. One of the items you can choose is called the 'Menu Bar', and it includes three drop-down menus. Now I am back in business. I have discovered that even with small hitches like this, and the ability to totally customize everything (which sometimes leads to confusion), I still like this version of Linux wa-a-a-ay better than Windows. It is just plain fun to use, plus I can do some development work, run a local web server, etc.
