I don't know. Is it me or are things kinda crazy now. All this crap in Washington, fires in California, forced power outages, Syria-Kurd situation. It's nuts.

For entertainment value only...nothing else, I sometimes watch YT for vids by conspiracy mongers who go on and on about coming catastrophes. And it seems like every time, Every Time, they spew out b.s. about massive earthquakes, volcanoes destroying the atmosphere, Red Dawn events, and on and on, nothing happens.

You can't confront them with, "...wait a minute, didn't you say this, that, or the other?" No, you can't because their predictions are long ago and well forgotten.

So, maybe if you do listen to conspiracy theorists you listen for a laugh. But please don't take them seriously. They don't know what the hell they are talking about. The only thing for sure is that you will hear their sponsor pitches about emergency flashlights, bug-out bags, dehydrated food, and useless subscription co…

You could roll the dice and not have it...Insurance.
But what if you get into a car accident? What if your house burns down or someone slips on your driveway this winter and cracks their head and follows with a suit? What happens if you are hospitalized or need long term medical care? What if someone steals your computer? I would freak out. What if you are one of the 700,000 British travelers who got stuck oversees several weeks ago when Thomas Cook Travel went bankrupt leaving huge numbers of people stranded? No travel insurance then you would have to pay for another flight, paying twice for that one trip home.
I think you get it. We have damn near everything in the way of insurance to cover those catastrophes I just mentioned. It costs us plenty and has done so for decades. But it would ruin us financially if any of those bad turn of events I mentioned above should occur and I didn't have insurance coverage.
But that does mean you are locked into any one insurance carrier? No. …

A Really Important and Meaningful Thought or Two
I am going to list a YouTube link to a video I just watched about how the universe in many trillions of years will evaporate into entropy, into...Nothing. No light. No matter. No shape, form, or anything even at the sub-atomic level. Nothing. Absolute silence at absolute zero temperature.
I guess to think about something like that can be depressing. But on a time scale of trillions of years it is also beyond human comprehension and beyond comprehension so say it is beyond comprehension.
But I was also left with the feeling that I must...MUST...enjoy the hear and now. You've heard that, of course, many times. But every day events and trauma or distraction makes us stray off course. You can't. 
I guess it is interesting to consider our own human fate in the decades we have left or even the years we have left. But remember that you can make all the plans in the world to do the best and most beautiful crafting of future years but so…
