8294 –

Changed the layout and color scheme of my journal a little bit while Fatima cleaned house for me. Looks like Rosemary’s branching out, and Fatima will be the new cleaner-upper.

Shot for some earth tones and greens, but I don’ t know if I’ll stick with ’em yet.

Looks like some serious rain today… minimal walkies, then.

Moment of Lyric – mp3

Steve walks warily down the street,
With the brim pulled way down low
Ain’t no sound but the sound of his feet,
Machine guns ready to go
Are you ready, are you ready for this
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I’m gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

How do you think I’m going to get along,
Without you, when you’re gone
You took me for everything that I had,
And kicked me out on my own

Are you happy, are you satisfied
How long can you stand the heat
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat


Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
There are plenty of ways you can hurt a man
And bring him to the ground
You can beat him
You can cheat him
You can treat him bad and leave him
When he’s down
But I’m ready, yes I’m ready for you
I’m standing on my own two feet
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
Repeating the sound of the beat

The Weezle knew the answer to my tree question… the purple flowering plant is a Bauhinia (otherwise known as a Poor Man’s Orchid) Has been an emblem of Hong Kong since 1965. Local people call the leaf chungmingyip (聰明葉, lit. “cleverleaf”), and regard it as a symbol of cleverness. Some people use the leaves to make bookmarks in the hope that it will assist them to study well.

Weez gets a gold star!

In general, you are a very giving person who treats others very well.
But at times, you insist on getting your way – when it matters most to you.

Chiropractor claims to travel through time

Ohio investigates provider who offers to reach into past to heal patients

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A chiropractor who claims he can treat anyone by reaching back in time to when an injury occurred has attracted the attention of state regulators.

The Ohio State Chiropractic Board, in a notice of hearing, has accused James Burda of Athens of being “unable to practice chiropractic according to acceptable and prevailing standards of care due to mental illness, specifically, Delusional Disorder, Grandiose Type.”

Burda denied that he is mentally ill. He said he possesses a skill he discovered by accident while driving six years ago.

“My foot hurt and, knowing anatomy, I went ahead and I told it to realign and my pain went away,” Burda said Thursday.

Burda calls his treatment “Bahlaqeem.”

“It is a made-up word and, to my knowledge, has no known meaning except for this intended purpose. It does, however, have a soothing vibrational influence and contains the very special number of nine letters,” Burda’s Web site says.

The board alleges in three counts against Burda that the treatment is unacceptable and constitutes “willful and gross malpractice.” Burda has until May 1 to request a hearing. The board can levy penalties ranging from a reprimand to revoking his license to practice, said Kelly Caudill, the board’s executive director.

Caudill said she could not discuss the board’s allegations while the investigation continues and could not comment on whether any of Burda’s patients had complained. She said the board began the investigation when it learned of Burda’s Web site. Burda said he likely will seek a hearing.

Burda said he charges nothing for his first “visit,” usually by phone or Internet, and subsequent treatments are $60.

“All treatments are satisfaction-guaranteed. Treatment is always done before payment is made,” Burda said, adding that one patient “just wasn’t satisfied, and I tore up her check.

The Web site describes the treatment as “a long-distance healing service (not a product) to help increase the quality of your life that can be performed in the privacy of your home or other personal space. There is no need to come to my office.”

The treatment is not telepathic because the patient does not have to believe in what he’s doing, Burda said. He has treated hundreds of patients and reports nine out of 10 patients are satisfied, he said.

While he knows of no other people who have his particular skill, he said lawmakers and regulators should allow alternative forms of treatment for the patients who seek them.

“People who are in need cannot go to these people because they are not allowed to practice. This is terrible,” Burda said.
