Minoan religion featured a female snake deity

It is 11:03 AM late Saturday morning here in Holland Michigan. My wife grew up here in Holland Michigan. Holland is a college town and also people from Chicago come here to get away from the noise of a big city.

I am having a normal day thus far. I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I woke up to a cool house because last night I shut up the house and turned on the central air system. I made myself a portion of oatmeal for breakfast and ate my mush messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and have been reading 'The Works of William Perkins' Volume 7.

Carol got home late from work because she went to a grocery store after work. She is now sleeping, she works tonight and tomorrow night.

I am still feeling sick with a head cold. I am also in a bad mood. I am sick of everything. I am tired. I need healing in my left shoulder.

Last night after Carol left for work I filmed a video and then watched Amazon Prime on Edith Wharton. I went to bed around 11 o'clock PM last night. I did not sleep soundly due to feeling sick and my left should being in pain.

There is not much else to report this morning. I plan to drift through the day. I will close to look at a book titled, 'The Highly Civilized Man: Richard Burton And The Victorian World' by Dane Kennedy.
