DeeJay, the party sounds like it was a great success! Sorry the inspection didn't go smoothly. Marcy, the crabs were simply fantastic. In fact I bought enough that I had the leftovers for dinner tonight! I can't wait till we get the ceiling fan up in the elliptical room. I did a short session when I...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

It's been a nice Sunday. It looks like it's going to storm out, but of late, the storms have managed to go around us. We really need a soaking rain for the new landscape. I had a good session on the elliptical this morning. We put ceiling fans in ever room, except for the elliptical room. That was a...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Deegee, we worked in the yard and lanai today, but we most certainly didn't lounge around it. It's as you said too dang hot down here. But there were things I needed to take care. When the put in the ceiling fans and took out the ceiling lights, it needed to be painted up there. I found the right pa...

Thanks DeeJay! I hope your party is fabu! I remember you saying you weren't going to do a major clean, for people to then muck it all up. Made sense to me. Yes it did!

Re: Healthy Living Thread

The landscaping is DONE DONE DONE!! I can't believe how exciting we are with a small back yard, but we are and it exceeds our highest expectations. The spa comes a week from tomorrow! After dinner last night, we went to Lowe's. We have an alcove on the lanai and it was begging for a couple chairs an...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, I like your vision excuse! I might have to use that one day! Getting up at 6:20? My motto is if the sun isn't up, Rod isn't either. So Deejay, I would never get up at 5 AM. No I would NOT! I do think the she has cancer, no she doesn't is odd. I hope she doesn't. I just don't understand how a ...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

On my co-workers wife. Tests have come back and now they say they can't find any cancer and her liver levels have returned to normal. Very weird, but wonderful news at the moment. They're doing more tests, but one has to wonder how you can tell a patient you have stage 4 cancer, then just days later...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay, Sounds like a tough decision. The fact they can't be mortgaged though would be a major concern to me. This just by that would have to significantly reduce the available pool of buyers in the future. Not telling you what to do, but I would look for something that doesn't have a big red flag. ...

BUT, that shouldn't make you feel guilty to continue living your life and doing things that will improve your lifestyle. Please don't feel guilty, OK? Friday, I learned there's an older employ...

I'm glad the new glasses are working out better for your Marcy. I've worn glasses from Eyephorics called 2.5. They weigh 2.5 grams and feel like there's nothing on my face. They're pricey, but my frames have lasted years now and when my prescription changes, they just send them back to Eyephorics fo...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay, even if your mortgage guy wouldn't make much money off a HELOC for you, I would hope that given you've funneled a lot of business his way over 12 years, he would have your best interest at heart. I would certainly see what Chase can do for you. I'll be excited to hear (and hopefully see pics...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay, I'm curious why your mortgage guy would not recommend a HELOC? For us, using the equity in our home was a great option and had we stayed in the condo, we could continue to use the money as we paid it back for up to 15 years. Plus the interest rate we got was around 2.25% when we closed. We w...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay, HELOC's are wonderful. We used the equity in the condo last year to pay for both new Mercedes with cash. Then paid it off when we sold the condo and still had more money left than we paid for the place 5 years ago. It permitted us to put substantial money into the new house and have a very s...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay will this be for you to enjoy on weekends or to rent out as an investment? Either way, with a boat slip, it sounds pretty terrific. You'll have to take some pics and post them!

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Until just a few years ago, we moved a snow shovel with us to each new home we brought with us from up north. We finally got rid of it. Snow is a bad four letter word. Mow is a bad 3 letter word! I'm glad your dad and Marty got along much better after hiring a company to mow and shovel!

Marcy, I don't know why it takes so many button pushes to bake something, but it does. On the backyard, no, we're not going to have ANY grass. That was the deal when Charlie said he wanted a house house. I don't want to have to deal with grass, so we're having the backyard filled with brick pavers e...

DeeJay, a 400 sq ft condo? I'm assuming you'd buy it for investment to rent out? I can't imagine something quite that small. Marcy, the chicken was great. This is the first time we've had a gas stove and it definitely does make a difference. It's oddly complicated to turn on the oven though. You hav...

Marcy, even if I could afford that Spyder, I wouldn't want it. Cars like that simply don't interest me. The Macan on the other hand is a great SUV.
