Re: Healthy Living Thread

Rod, we already have 2 furry permanent residents in our home now. We have two cats who have done really well with our new temporary addition. My dad's picking up the dog tomorrow. We'll miss him and we're already planning on when we can borrow him again over the summer. Emi and Eri are gorgeous. I t...

Re: Hidden Netflix Gem Thread

I second "Bloodline". I hope they have renewed it. I also loved "Wentworth". It's about a women's prison in Australia. Far better but much more graphic violence than "Orange is the New Black". We tried watching Wentworth but I had to stop watching halfway through. It w...

Re: Which woman should be on the new US $10 bill?

I'd vote for Eleanor Roosevelt, although I think I'd be happy with any of the choices. So many women have made significant impact on our lives.

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Thanks, Rod! D. was going to call the hospital to check in but I told him to wait it out. He'd hear from them when they're ready to get in touch (and hopefully make a formal offer). He said that he was surprised to hear those words coming out of my mouth since I'm not usually the most patient person...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Hi there! I've been sick for a week, and I'm just now starting to feel somewhat normal again. I'm still not sure if I had strep but I was given antibiotics anyway. I had a high fever, aches, chills, sinus issues, and the worst sore throat I've ever had. I lost weight but of course out it right back ...

Re: Sleep apart from your SO?

My husband falls asleep on the couch most nights, and he usually comes to bed in the middle of the night. I'm a very slight sleeper and he's a very loud sleeper :cheeky: , so it's probably for the best that we don't spend every sleeping minute together. Vacations are always harder on me because I us...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Dee*Jay, I've never heard tornado sirens before. When I taught in NC, we had some sort of drill I hadn't done before. It may have been for a tornado. We had to go into the hallway at school, crouch down towards the wall, and cover our heads with our hands. Good thinking to get away from all that gla...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Thanks Dee*Jay and Marcy! My mom broke her shoulder and the only thing they can really do is immobilize her arm with a sling. Surgery is an option but her doctor at the hospital says that it's the last resort. It wouldn't be an easy surgery and recovery would be rough. So they're hoping not to have ...

Re: Do You Like Kids?

Re: Hidden Netflix Gem Thread

My husband wants to watch Bloodline but he hasn't started yet. He wants me to watch it with him, but I'm a little skeptical. We watch a lot of heavy, intense dramas, detective/cop shows, and I'm not sure I can handle another one. Having said that, we did just finish season one of Graceland. It's abo...

Marcy, strawberries and peanut butter sounds like a strange combination unless it's strawberry jam and you're making PB&J, but put them on top of a rice cake, and they're soooo good. New boss, huh?

That's too bad the shoot didn't work out, Dee*Jay. I'm surprised the company didn't know to check with the city about parking, etc. My back feels better today.

Re: Do you consider this statue sexist?

No I don't think this statue is sexist. I never heard of mansplaining either.
