Re: Check-In #98: How have you been?

Have you tried updating FF? I was having trouble with older versions too. (Hi BTW :) ) Yep, all nicely updated, which hasn't helped. Son even checked to make sure, because you know, maybe I missed something. :unsure: :lol: {Hi, back. :) } Not chipped? Worth checking out. You mean his claws? That wa...

Re: Check-In #98: How have you been?

Finally got the oil changed in the car today. Son kept putting it off, and I kept reminding him that it's not my job anymore. :lol: We are trying full synthetic, see if it really is better. Oh no. It sounds like a juicy story. You really are a menace to yourself :lol: I do my best. ;) I pretty much ...

Re: The Weather: Summer is Upon Us

Yeah, the thunderstorm was a little late, but it's making up for lost time. :scared: Yikes, looks like you got hit with a good-sized storm, RJ . :no: No sun in sight today, which kept the temps down to the upper 70's! I think it's the first time since May it's been this cool. The only thing to slig...

Welcome back. :hello: Thanks, RJ . :) That is really a terrible cable company. Yep, but the only game in town other than satellite, which tends to suck. That's weird.

Re: Pet Pictures- paws and jaws.

I guess I should post a picture of Merc, since I've talked about him. :)

Here is my foot as his personal pillow:

And one of his markings. He is striped, spotted and marbled:

Re: Infirmary Thread #16: LOL Is The Best Rx

It doesn't seem to bother me in Florida. I do worry about what the air pressure of an on coming hurricane would do to my sinuses. I did have a sinus headache on the right side, all day yesterday. When I left work, storms were beginning to form. I took an hour and a half nap after dinner. By the tim...

Re: Garden Club V: Herbs, Vegetables, and Blooms

My garden is a month behind. It was chilly in April (had some frosty mornings), then rain in May and June, still raining, so a challenge to plant. I got tomatoes, peppers and onions set in the new garden. I just dug in the mud to plant them one day. Have been slowly clearing weeds in the old garden,...

Bad enough that the pressure is dropping again and with it, a migraine is rising. So much for the Metoprolol helping to prevent migraines. :no:

Well, I haven't got a real low pressure to blame this migraine on. There has been a very slight drop, and yes, that could cause it, but how unfair is that? :P :lol: I thought I was coming down with something yesterday, but it let up as the day wore on. Might just have been allergies. Glad it let up....

Re: The Weather: The Coming of Spring.

Started the day cold, with a fresh layer of snow. By the time I was done feeding horses, the snow was almost gone and the temps rose to 34F. Right now, the sun is shining and it's 38F.

Maybe you should say hi to them, they might appreciate it.
Yeah, it's just nice to know. I've even tried searching for two friends that moved away in Junior High, but so far, nothing on either one. It would just be nice to know how they are, how they lived.

Last night the migraine finally eased up, unfortunately today I got hit with what I assume was a rebound migraine. So five days this time. It's easing now, so I think I'm going to be free. Thursday I could have used scottydog's first aid kit, or simply some bubble wrap. It was minor, but it sure sma...

Today was de-worming day for the girls (horses). All three behaved, which is good, because in the mud, I doubt I could have stayed upright. Today was a low dose day, then in two weeks they will get a full dose. I switched wormers, so I am not comfortable giving them a full dose. Next week will be th...
