Better Drugs

     My neurologist has switched me from nortriptyline to amitriptyline and from gabapentin to pregabalin. This has greatly reduced my nerve pain to the point where I can actually sleep at night again, resulting in much improved functionality throughout the day.

     I am slowly catching up on things.  Today I got accounting current.  Now I am going to work on a new computer that will be another host and once it is in place a new virtual machine which will be a web server with the older PHP 5.6 on it to allow some services that are not yet ready for PHP 7.1, like the ticket system, to work.

God letting me know…

     God let me know he is still present tonight.

     On Facebook someone posted a link to a youtube copy of Norman Greenbaum’s Spirit in the Sky.

     I posted a comment that, while I love the song, Norman Greenbaum did not have a good understanding of Christianity when he stated, “Never been a sinner, I’ve never sinned, I’ve got a friend in Jesus”, because we’re all sinners and that is precisely why we need Jesus.

     Then I decided to play the song, I have it in WinAmp (I have the original 45 but WinAmp is a lot more convenient) so I played it.  I had WinAmp setup to play random selections indefinitely.  The very next song it played was, “Oh Come All Ye Faithful”, and then followed that up with “Oh Holy Night”, both sung by Josh Gruben.

      Now I have about 8,000 songs loaded and of those maybe 20 are spiritual, so the odds of it picking those two were infinitesimally small.
