Warts and All

I had one common wart located on my left little finger which I showed to my Dermatologist. Common Warts are hardy and are caused by the HPV virus (ewww, sounds gross!). Since its location is on the outermost layer of skin,  Doc said my immune system is as concerned with it as much as I would be concerned for the far-away state of Alaska (I am in the Midwest, USA). That is why, if left untreated and on its own, the wart may take my immune system over a year to zap.

No thanks; I wanted quick action, so he recommended the over-the-counter Compound W Fast Acting Liquid: a bottled concentration of Salicylic Acid (17% -- at this strength, it is never to be applied to the face). I was to apply it once at night on my little finger (it stung!) and cover the wart with a strip of duct tape while I slept. Personally, I chose not to apply it every night; more like every 3rd or 4th night. I stopped after a couple of weeks. Doc says it's when skin lines are seen on the spot once again that the wart can be considered succesfully treated.

Salicylic Acid can burn-off that outer layer of skin!

How did I catch this since warts are contagious? Who knows.  My son had several warts on his dry chapped hands. And he probably got it from touching the public pianos he'd practice on while in college.

Electoral College for Dummies

Do You Understand the Electoral College?

Luv this short video!  It's yet another reason why I -- a "deplorable" minority (legal) immigrant  -- continues to love being a citizen of the Good Ol' U.S. of A. (Just felt a little disappointed that my state's electoral college votes went to Mrs Clinton).

Some comments on the above video from a poster named Virgil G:

"Look at it this way, for instance, take the electoral map and look at how many counties Clinton won vs Trump. Trump blew her out of the water in rural areas of the states and where she got most of her votes were in the big inner cities because of the diverse demographic. In Illinois for example Trump lost the total popular vote obviously so Clinton won the state and electoral votes, but when you break it down Trump won about 90 counties vs Clinton's 12 counties. But the urban communities decided who won the state because of the diverse nature of the areas. She had more black and Hispanic support and…
