    I think thats a healthy time Mike. When I am on track, I too am a 9pm person. My wife gies to bed at 6pm and asleep by 9pm.

    Glad you understand me Sal. I hope to return to a routine of in bed by 9pm and asleep by 10.

    Also pleased D does not give a fuck. Lol ... regardless of bed time, that has been working for me on various levels. Thankfully, hygine is OK.

    It used to take me two hours or so to get to sleep after going to bed. But that was years ago.

    Now it only takes me around a half hour to get to sleep after my head hits the pillow.

    Why?

    Because of the psychiatric medication that I've been taking for many years.

    Heheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Ponder. Oh I am trying to quit completely the sleeping pills , I am on them for years. I suffer with insomnia for my whole life , I remember as a child in elementary school; everyone was sleeping and I was constantly turning and turning unable to fell asleep

    Yes - I am learning it comes down to the lessor of two evils - although that's just a metaphor and don't recommend seeing everything as evil.

    Kudos to anyone that can iron out there sleeping patterns with sleep hygiene. Sleep hygiene research is a huge topic but can be quite effective when approached with a strong desire to nail their sleeping patterns. I'm still kind of in the (can't give a fuck mode) BUT ... finding that more I complete basic tasks that make me feel less stressed, my desire on all levles of hygiene is starting to come back.

    If you have nothing to do ... here is a video of me just responding to people in the steam discussions as I am rarely able to be understood in those places. I link only in here for those who may or may not be stalking me on my twitch channel. hahhhahahaa

    Just steaming randomly ... Off Mic during the day out of respect for my wife's space (streaming from living room) however I do ramble on and on during the evenings whilst making sense out of this game. I know much of what I talk about in this video will not make sense ... but like I say ... it's one for my lone stalkers. Whoever you are ... I appreciate having you along for the ride. It's going to be an AWESOME City/Region when it's completed.

    Not much going on with me today. Not much going on tomorrow with me either, or it least it looks that way.

    I'll be busy this week, however. So I'll just try to enjoy the eventless weekend while it lasts.

    Eventless sounds mighty fine to me.

    Enjoy Mike.

    I hope to one day to get off sleeping pills as well, Dahila, but now just isn't the time with everything I'm dealing with I guess, on them for years too. For some reason, I deal with pain better than lack of sleep, and for that reason, I never got addicted to pain pills - Not that any doctors around here prescribe them even for cancer patients. Doctors here are terrified of losing their license. I remember doctors handing them out like candy in the 80's and they just weren't for me I guess, and now, not a chance even after surgery. Either Tylenol (wreck the liver) or ibuprofen (wreck the kidneys). War on drugs is tough position for genuine people in pain it seems.

    Anyway..

    Nothing new here to report.

    Glad to read your postings Ponder, Dahila, and Mike, and wishing you the best.

    Take care

    Likewise Sal - Currently in a motel. Came down to the city for my wife's annual check up at the hospital. At garbage on the way down. Not much in the way of healthy choices. Thankfully there is a grocery shop down the road where I can get some green leaves for a bit of roughage. lol Honestly though ... my City Slicker Son and my new daughter in-law will for sure be taking us out for Korean tonight. (I hate the word in-law - she really is a good girl and I could not give two fucks about the law)

    Hmmm where was I ... still flying down the highway with my head I thinks. Seriously ... it's been good to see you guys posting away. I have been fully engrossed in my new PC gear and obsessed with city building of all things.

    Here is my set up of late. Thinking of getting a capture device to have the gaming laptop as a dedicated steaming PC - That way I utilize the quad core from it, free up ram on my end as well as video and another 8 cores on the beast for 100% butter smooth gameplay whiles streaming ... yadda yadda ...

    Here is a snap shot I took the other day. Is a work in progress:



    Since I got my laptop with me now and the portable drive ... I might actually do some work on my road layout.

    Take Care Guys.
