Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay, I'm with you. I feel nothing but doom and gloom for our future, my marriage, the healthcare of millions and freedom for all. It's done now. All we can hope is he somehow figures out he's President of all Americans. Not just the ones who voted for and support him. I'm in an office full of cel...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay, I can certainly understand blowing a gasket over that vendor. Often these companies just like testing you to see what you're willing to tolerate. You clearly demonstrated you weren't willing to accept much. Good for you! So I had my recheck eye exam this morning. The prescription was really ...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Hey, I'll bet Marty would be great as a gym owner. I wish I had the courage to do something on my own. The 40s must seem like a heatwave to you. It was in the 80s today. For the most part, Florida has decided to skip winter this year. It's getting old, to be honest. We usually can count on some chil...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Hey......I'm feeling semi-quasi-OK. I'm still on an antibiotic, but for me that means a month. I'm still very anxious to get the results of the biopsy. I try to keep it out of mind, but I'm not good at that. Really not much to report. I'm going to go see my eye doctor. My new glasses are great. The ...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay, I'm surprised you had an inspection on a Sunday morning, but then real-estate has a 7 day a week schedule, right? Glad you got all organized and things returned. I'm feeling much better today. I watched SNL last night and got up at 8 as I was ready to get up. We just had coffee and watched d...

We went to the optical store and I dropped off my sunglasses for new lenses. Charlie wound up ordering a pair of ...

LOL to first world problems. #1. We have a Dualit toaster and love it but it doesn't have a sandwich maker. I say donate it, or even put it on Craigslist and sell it. They're pricey and so well made.

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Thanks for your thoughts on real-estate DeeJay. I couldn't keep my full time job and do this on the side as my boss wouldn't appreciate me running out on a moments notice to take care of an issue or a client if the need arose. I just know I really need to do something other than what I'm currently d...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Hey.........I guess I'm doing OK today. I slept in this morning as I was advised I wasn't able to drive until 24 hours after anesthesia. Who knew that if you have anesthesia you can get a DUI within the first 24 hours if you mess up while driving. I went to work around noon, but didn't really accomp...

DeeJay, that's a right pricey coffee table. Is it light enough to move every night? I'm sure you'll put the BH all together really nicely. Don't overthink it. Furniture can be moved. Just get pieces you like and have fun. Marcy, sorry for all the Italian food talk. We don't often have pasta. It's od...

Pretty earrings and sunrise picture Marcy! We spent the day today with the owners of the optical shop where we buy our glasses. We've been good friends for years, but for some reason, we hadn't spent much time with them this year. They have two children and have busy lives. And we have busy lives as...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Just got home from dinner and it was simply fantastico! We started with Calamari, then Caesar salad and for dinner, just what I wanted. The lobster in linguine and tomato sauce. My brother had the same thing. We upsized the lobsters to 3lb (which was quite pricey), but how often do you get a treat l...

Thanks for the Birthday wishes Marcy and DeeJay. It was actually just a pretty typical Friday. I worked all day and we met our friends for Sushi like we do every Friday evening.

DeeJay, I'm glad you're having a great time. Time goes by too fast when you're having fun. Yummmm to Lobster BLT! I cooked the roast much the same way. Uncovered at first, then sealed completely till the end, when I let it brown. It just wasn't fall apart like it should have for that many hours. So,...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, the roast did not turn out the way I planned it. It slow cooked for 8 full hours and was cooked all the way through, but was not fall off the bone the way it should have been. The rest of the dinner was great, but the meat was disappointing. It's actually in oven cooking more. I hope your cro...

Happy New Year! Marcy, I hope you're going out last night was fun and safe. It was a nice evening last night. We had waaaaaaay too much food. We kind of just grazed all evening long. I had a couple glasses of wine. It was a cool, not cold night, so we put candles all over the back yard and sat out u...

DeeJay, doesn't your computer/laptop have a card reader? The easiest way to transfer digital pics from a camera is to take the card out of the camera, pop it in your laptop and the laptop automatically reads the card and you tell it where you want them stored to. Long gone are the days of tethering ...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, we take a spa sample to the pool supply store every Sunday. The water doesn't get off much, but instead of us having a test kit and trying to determine exactly what we need to put in the spa, it takes just a minute or two for the store to check and then they give us a printout with exactly wh...
