Unfortunately My Teeth Are Not In The Best Of Condition!

I was thinking about this while I was eating dinner and a small piece of tooth broke off. It's nothing major but when it happened I thought "oh well more work for the dentist to do when I go to them". It's been quite a while since I have been to the dentist and the problem, of course, is the lack of money to do so.

I know that when I do go to the dentist it will probably cost a lot because there is a lot of work that has to be done to my teeth. There were quite a few times when I was in so much pain from my gums hurting that I probably took more aspirin than I should. Taking a lot of aspirin made me feel stuffed up but aspirin is all I had at the time - and there were quite a few times when I didn't even have the aspirin! Fortunately I haven't had that kind of pain in a long time.

I know that there is a lot of talk about providing low cost dental care but so far that is all that it is - talk!

So a trip to the dentist is on my "list" of things to do.

Don Imus?

Well imagine my surprise when I looked at my TV Guide to see that Don Imus is back on the air again! I probably thought that he was going to be back on the air again but I just didn't expect it to be so soon!

I'm kind of surprised that he is back on TV again - although the station he was on was one of the channels from my Direct TV channels and its a station that I have never heard of before.

But it also made me think of something else and that is "second chances". Is it really naive for me to think that he would never be let back on the air (although I thought that he might turn up on paid radio like Howard Stern) after the things that he said?

Look at Britney Spears and what's going on in her life which looks like turmoil to me but yet and still she has come out with a critically acclaimed album.

I'm not saying that everybody deserves a second chance but it looks like they are getting it - one way or another!
