Re: Healthy Living Thread

Hey Zoe, of course I remember you. I hadn't posted in a few years, but have been posting lately. This thread is frequented by far fewer people than it was a few years ago. I'm glad you're back closer to home near family, but man, you guys have certainly had quite the winter this year. Rod doesn't do...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay, dentistry is really amazing. My dentist has had this technology for over a decade and he was telling me he will be investing in 3D dentistry soon. He's making a presentation at a dental conference at Harvard, in April about it. He said he'll be able to map a tooth to such an exact copy and t...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Thanks Marcy. The crown was a bit complicated. Turns out the tooth was badly cracked under the outside of the tooth. It made it much harder to prepare the tooth, but he succeeded and I have the permanent crown. It's a bit uncomfortable as there is trauma that will need to heal. At least tomorrow I'l...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

GOOD MORNING..........Such a relief. It's done. I think they were floored this morning. And just as I was getting ready to leave the office, new Boy-Wonder showed up. In a suit and tie of course. But we don't wear suits in Florida. His buddy who started about 5 months ago also wears a suit and tie e...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Thanks Marcy. I'll just be glad to have it over. I'm guessing I'll be ready to walk out of the office as kid-wonder comes in. I do in some ways feel bad for him. He was hired with the understanding he'd have a team to manage. I'll be like......."nice to meet you, I wish you well, but I just res...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Oh Deegee, I didn't mean to imply it was funny. I'm sure it was an awful experience. You just told it in a somewhat humorous way. My apologies if it came across that I found it amusing. Honest.

Re: Healthy Living Thread

I'm counting the hours till I can go in tomorrow morning, hand in my key, parking badge and say so-long. I let a few people I've worked in other offices know as I've had great relationships with them and I didn't want them to hear it after the fact. They were all thrilled for me. Deegee, I'm sorry a...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Morning all..........I woke up early, went into my office and cleaned out all my stuff. I'm glad this will all be over Monday morning, but must admit it is in many ways sad. It's going to be a rainy day in the Sunshine State. I'm not sure what we'll get into, but it most definitely won't involve bei...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, my dentist is actually a Prosthedontist and he does what you referred to. He'll use a digital camera to map my mouth, and while he's working on prepping my tooth, the crown is made out of a block of solid porcelain in this cool looking machine I can watch. Then he puts it on, adjusts it, and ...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, it turns out I don't need a root canal, but I do have a cracked tooth, so Monday afternoon I'll be getting yet another crown. Funny story. I had never been to this Endodontist before, but when he walked in, I recognized him from the gym. He was one of the "uber" boys who pumped hund...

Re: Mens Bling Eyecandy Folder

I think you're commenting about the wedding bands I posted, so I'm going to say thank you! The jeweler sent me photos of the rings in the rough, without stones or polishing, but they are going to look exactly like the renders!

Thanks everyone. I am feeling human again. I ate a good dinner and kept it all down. And I slept through the night comfortably. I even went to work today. Well, I sat at my desk at work today. If I actually do anything, it won't help anyone. So I have to look busy, make phone calls, do system work, ...

I managed to come down with a flu bug that is intestinal. I went to work yesterday and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I had a high fever, aches, sore muscles and liquid coming from both ends (sorry if that's too graphic). I slept for 12 continuous hours and couldn't eat anything. I'm feeling quasi ...

I know our weather can't even compare a teensy tiny bit, but we're going to have a hard freeze in Tampa, tonight. It's the coldest it's been in many years. I even had to turn on the furnace when I came home tonight. It's the first time we've had to turn on heat all season. I can feel the sympathy al...

DeeJay, I love "hangover hour!" I'm afraid out division on a national level has lost any direction. Again, they hired a national General Manager to run our division across the country. He's 32 years old and has no clue how to provide direction to anyone, doesn't follow up, even when asked ...
