Re: Aging - it's not for fraidy cats

I don't have any magic answers for you Sugar, but I suggest that you keep banging on the doors until someone finally acts. Delaying treatment for hypothyroidism can exacerbate your problem. Left untreated it can cause goiter and create heart problems and mental health issues. Really stress to whomev...

Re: Aging - it's not for fraidy cats

Well, shoot. On the one hand I'm glad to hear that your brother's visit was fortuitous. On the other, sorry to hear you went through so much agony this week, Vic. May the adjustments to your medications take you to a comfortable place.

Re: Horses! and other beloved 'farm' animals

Lamb mere minutes old. I don’t need to see that again. While I realize you are a city girl, W4 there's nothing unseemly about observing the miracle of a lambing. I never saw a lamb born, but was raised on a commercial cattle ranch and saw my "fair" share of calves being born. Not to mention the num...

Re: LEAVE Brexit Vote: Leave EU Thu 23 June - Market and US Election Impact

While I can appreciate your enthusiasm to tell your story Slarti, but I agree with W4. A clear, jargon-free executive summary (or abstract) would be very helpful in later following the details of the company you founded, the ill-conceived schism, the results and impact of the mediated settlement, AN...

Re: Fogbow Arts and Crafts Club

We ran the machine with the top cover plate of the open arm removed. There is a knob with settings of 0, 1, 2 for embroidery, regular fabric, and heavy fabric that lowers and raises the feed dogs. This is a smooth adjustment. The feed dogs are attached to a flat plat (feed bar) and it appears that t...

Re: Fogbow Arts and Crafts Club

Okay, this may need some repair/adjustment by a pro. We took out the needle and ran it. Got the cyclic clicking/tapping sound. We took out the bobbin and shuttle; same results. Isolating the sound it is coming from the "sled" that the feed dogs sit on (the sled travels in a circular motion). When th...

Well, I'll be the odd one and sympathize with the poor snake. Back when I was a dumb youngster, I handled 3-foot Western Diamondbacks at a tourist trap. The sad reality is that a diamondback's weak neck structure is incompatible with handling them very much. Handling them more than a few times will ...

Best of luck Bill_G. The Valtrex will help. You may start to notice that the Gabapentin is a drug that generally numbs you. Mrs. Gneiss hated that aspect of it. Hopefully your use will be short term.
