I Went to the Doctor Yesterday

I was worried that I might have pneumonia so I went to a doctor at the V.A.
Apparently the vaccine for pneumonia is working since I really haven't had that disease since I had the shot.
I just have a chest cold and she recommended that I take something called Muscelex.  I think I misspelled that but I couldn't find out how to spell it.
I went to the co-op and they didn't have it so I tried a honey based medicine. It seems to be working.
That led to a screw up yesterday. I had my medicine in my car while I was at Barnes & Noble in Onalaska. I went out to the car to take a snort of the medicine and I forgot that my laptop was still at the table at the bookstore. I drove all the way home before I realized my mistake.
I called them and confirmed that the laptop was there; then I went back today to pick it up.
At least the cold seems to be breaking up; at least I'm coughing more and getting more flem out.
I think I'll be fine in a couple more days.
I bought a few hundred dollars of Litecoin and Bitcoin today. At least I'm in position to make some money. I think I'll have some more money this Friday. I'll put it all into crypto currency.

I Feel like I'm Coming down with Something.

I feel feverish and tired. Maybe I simply didn't get much sleep last night; but I feel like I might be coming down with something.
It's been a long time since I've been sick. i just hope it's not pneumonia. I've had that several times. I always feel like I'm knocking on heaven's door when I have that.
At least my car is working and I can make it to the V.A. clinic if I have to. Antibiotics normally cures it in no time.
I sold the majority of the coins. I went to a place called "American Rarities". I was disappointed with the price but it was the same that a coin shop offered me.
I might use the money for a down payment on a trailer. I could move to a reservation in Arizona and pay $500/yr. for the space rental. We'll see what happens.
The pricey coin will sell in March at an auction in Baltimore. It didn't grade as high as the folder said but it's still a good coin and I hope we get some interest in the bidding.
I'm hoping to do some traveling next Summer. Maybe I'll have a trailer that I can live in whilst traveling.
I watch all sorts of YouTube videos saying that there is a cabal of pedophiles who are about to be busted. Nothing ever happens. Maybe the justice system is so corrupt that they can't do anything. That's the way it appears. I guess I'll just stop watching those things. It's like the dollar; nothing happens no matter how evil it is.

I Haven't Blogged for a While.

I'm sorry that I haven't blogged for a while.
I've been busy trying to get my car running and taking pictures of my coins and indexing them.
My car has had two problems: first the battery died and Dan the mechanic thought it was the alternator, then the front brakes wore out.
I can't afford the $300 that a mechanic wants to replace the pads and rotors so I'm trying to get it done by a friend of mine named Brian. I had to buy the parts and tools to get it done but Brian is a bit depressive and he doesn't get things done quickly. Maybe I'll get it done tomorrow.
I'll get the car up and take off the left wheel before Brian shows up tomorrow. Maybe I'll save myself a few silver coins and just do it myself. I have a YouTube video about how to do it. It doesn't look that hard.
I got my coins all neatly photographed and entered into a data base called "OpenNumismat". It's an open source data base for coins. It really helps me keep all the information in one spot.
It took a while to get it all entered but it makes it a lot easier to find info on the coins.
The music has started at Java Johns and it's a bit distracting.

I'm Making Progress on Marketing my Coins

I spent about 4 hours trying to get a Windows microscope camera working with Linux. It turned out that it was just so unfocused that no images came through. Once I got it focused a bit I was able to get it working. I'm looking forward to using it on my coins, next Monday.
I had some good news from the auction place in New York about my expensive coin. They said that they felt that it was properly graded as an MS 65. They are sending it to another grading service that is more reputable than the one that graded it in the first place. It looks like I'll have a lot of money in March; that is when the auction, in Baltimore, will take place.
On other news, my car didn't start yesterday. It turned out that the alternator isn't working right. I found a kit to repair the alternator on Ebay for $30. I don't have that kind of money this week. I'll wait until I get my Social Security money and send for it.
It'll take me a day to get it fixed but I can do it. That's what poor people have to do; I can't afford to spend $50/ hr. to pay a repairman.
Well, the music is about to start here at Java John's.

I'm Spinning my Wheels on Marketing the Coins.

I'm having troubles moving my coins. I don't have a good camera to take pictures for Ebay and potential buyers. I tried using my phone to take pictures of the coins, this morning.
I was able to transfer the image to the computer but it was too fuzzy to do any good.
I ordered a microscope camera from Wal Mart. It will take a couple of weeks to get here from China.
I'm broke so I don't know how I will get the pictures taken.
I'm trying to find someone who can help me with this; but so far I have no takers.
I have a couple of people interested in the coins. One  is in New York and the other is in Colorado; but I have no way to get good pictures to either.
I also left off 10 coins at a place called Game Exchange. They not only are into video games but they market things on Ebay for people.
The trouble with them is that they are not doing anything. I took those coins there last week and they haven't listed them yet. I'm getting exasperated.
On a different topic, I watched a video about something called C60 today. It's some sort of isotope of carbon that has benefits for health, apparently. If I could get my brother to take it (and maybe marijuana) maybe he'll heal his cancer. If I ever get any money I'll send him a bottle from Ebay. I'll get a bottle for myself because it's supposed to be good for everything including improving intuition.
I'm also not making any headway in getting my Bitcoins back. I was thinking today that if I ever get any serious money I should hire a private detective to help me find my coins. I think it's a good idea.
