Oh, actually Tim was in sports broadcasting for a bit in his earlier years. He worked for the AM Station in Maine WZON (Stephen Kings station). It paid tiddly winks though so he was forced into getting real jobs! LOL



Years and years ago I read a fiction that was about a radio broadcaster and his fall from fame. It was a sad story. I know the radio personalities don't make much money. I wonder what our tv announcers make.




Cathe probably the ones on national television make good money, but I doubt our local tv and radio announcers make all that much!

Ann,

What a nice hubby! I LOVE hubby's that cook! Mine did for awhile when I worked. Unfortunately he doesn't seem to anymore. I say that with a smile.

I always get the 50 mg. of benadryl along with some other meds before the infusion. It does make me very sleepy too, but like Lara, I tend to just close my eyes and not really sleep because as you say, all the machines beeping and the blood pressure cuff inflating!

I sometimes wonder why their benadryl makes me sleepier than the benadryl I take here in the evening!!!

Rum and I looked at microwaves. Of course he has to come home and research them to death. I think we have it down to a Whirlpool either at Sears or Lowe's. We always try to buy local from a guy Rum played baseball with. However he was $100 higher than at Lowe's, but the model # was different. So hard to compare. Meanwhile I miss being able to microwave.

My carpet might not be installed on Wed. It hasn't arrived yet at the store. Steve (my salesperson that reminds me so much of the dad on the tv show The Middle) said they had an ice storm in Georgia and that might have delayed it. OH @!!!%&***





I am guilty of comparing items before I buy too, Cathe! It doesn't make me that much smarter about the item, but I still do it.

My last microwave came from Walmart. Guess why? Allen went by himself to pick out one.

It definitely is not my favorite, but it will do!

Oh no on your carpet...! Did I see you curse????

Ann how nice of Audie to cook.

Betsey I too feel so badly for David and Karen. I'll pray for a miracle.

Tish is there an app for free books for the Ipad?





Cathe, I think if you look on your Ipad, you will see on icon that looks like a bookcase, that is apple's ebooks. You have to go up in the corner and click on store once you open it. I am not sure if there are free ones. I will check tonight.

You can download free books to go to your app like Cheryl does by going to Amazon.com. When you get the kindle section up on amazon..someplace it asks you where to download the book. You have some options...It will say download to my Kindle, or my Ipad. Since you do not have a Kindle, you would choose IPAD. I wish I could talk you through this.

Some day when I get ambitious, I will call you and show you how to get on facetime on your IPAD and then I think I can talk you through features on the IPAD.

Note I said I think!!!!!!! I am not that good at explaining. I am more of a hands on and learn that way!

Betsey, this site has been acting very wacky. I just posted something and it appeared in with yours and Ann's and I can't remember what or who else. I deleted it...It was a big old mess!

I like the small local hardware stores myself. Guess what? We have ACE hardware in Waterville. We often show as local as we can. By local, I mean Unity ( 5 miles ). They have a nice hardware store owned by nice people. True they are a bit higher but again we do not have to use as much gas to get there. We also have an Amish Hardware store in Unity now. Very nice. The last time I went in, I was with my daughter in law, Lisa and daughter Julie. We bought some apples, gourds, tomatoes etc, and I started to pay with my debit card and he said, sorry we don't take plastic! lol....I borrowed the money from Lisa until I got home. Not sure why I didn't write out a check.

I guess I was watching the football game last night and missed Downtown Abbey. I actually want to watch the series 1 and 2 on the DVD before I get into Part 3. Do you think that is what I should do, or can I just start watching season 3 and go back to season 1 and 2?

Good news from here. Dad does NOT have cancer! The doc said his platelet count is really okay, not low. The reason it was showing low is because his blood is clumping and the machine wasn't counting the platelets correctly. When the doc did it through the microscope...they are fine! That was wonderful news.

ALSO...at 1:02 this afternoon, by c-section, Griffyn Gerytt was born weighing 8 pounds. He is 20 1/2 inches long. His middle name is pronounced (Garrett) but my dd and sil have a thing for weird spellings! Lol. What can I say!! Kari wanted a letter Y in both his first and middle names because Greyden's is that way. Kari is not getting along so well tonight. Pain is pretty intense and she is allergic to the pain killer they gave her. I hope she can get some sleep tonight.

The stew was tasty and he made cornbread to eat with it. He enjoys cooking and since his office was closed for MLK day, he had time to do it.

The benadryl that Lara got was in IV form so it was in her system quicker. Do you get IV or a pill?

Jo, you had a good news day and no one deserves one more! So glad to hear the report on your dad. Is he on blook thinners to keep the blood from clumping so bad? And congratulations on the new grandson! One thing for such, any personalized items for him will truly be PERSONALIZED with their spelling of his name!

Betsey, quesadillas sound good. I am trying to come up with different menus for meals for Lara and that is something I haven't done.

Ann, my premeds are put in via infusion now, for the very reason you said. Your stew and cornbread sound wonderful.

Josie - WONDERFUL news about your dad!!! So happy to hear that the baby is here and doing well. Hope Kari is able to get some sleep.

Tish - The IV Benadryl works MUCH faster than the pill form. I assume they are giving it to you that way instead of the pill.

I am off to read and speaking of Benadryl need to go take my Tylenol PM. I usually take it at 9:30

Little Laynie's paternal grandfather is in serious condition tonight and on his way to Oschner's Hospital in New Orleans (5 hours away). He has a rare lung disorder called Alpha 1. The drugs he has to take for the Alpha 1 has destroyed his liver and it causes ammonia to build in his body. He becomes disoriented and today it was so bad he could not walk or talk. He is 58 years old. While they were waiting for medical transport to New Orleans, his wife's brother died from a stroke. This family is having more than their share of sadness right now. Please remember the Whitlock family in your prayers.

Betsey; the way you describe what has happened to the housing market there is sad. There has to be a lot of people in the same upside down situation.

I too have an Ace hardware store close to me.. love it. It is two miles away and the Lowes is 5. I stop at Ace for smaller stuff.
