I was driving to the boat ramp and listening to the news on my truck radio. They were saying how 60 percent of the seagrass has come back in the Indian River Lagoon after pollution killed it off. This is a lie in both statements. The seagrass that we had is not coming back and pollution is not what killed it. The next news bit was about manatees, aka, sea cows. They went on to say that in the last 6 months over 600 sea cows have died from starvation. Let that sink in, seagrass is what sea cows eat, if 60% of the seagrass has come back, why the hell are the sea cows dying? It is because what they are calling seagrass is not seagrass it is an invasive alga, it grows low to the bottom like a blanket smothering out the little bit of true seagrass that is trying to come back. There should be a state of emergency declared against the state of Florida for what they have done to this river.
The way the news spreads these lies, makes me wonder if there is any truth in anything they talk about. What else are they lying to us about?????
On a good note, our daughter assures us that she "might" be feeling a little better but she said she can not get her fever under control, she is taking Tylenol, and as soon as it wears off her fever spikes back up. She told us she did some research on covid pneumonia, it is not like run-of-the-mill pneumonia. It actually gets in your cells and I am guessing that is why the hospital said they can not give her anything for it. I am afraid she is just trying to make us not worry as much because she can only say a few words, then she goes into a coughing fit. We are still very worried for her and the baby, so please continue to pray for her.
Today I tried something different to see if there would be any change in my eyesight, I did not wear my sunglasses all day and my vision stayed good. I am wondering if this is the answer or is it a fluke, maybe my eyesight would have been good today if I had worn them. I will try it again tomorrow and see what happens. It was so nice being able to see all day and driving home not being stressed.
