Re: Aging - it's not for fraidy cats

I've posted a couple times about my father - a couple years ago he asked me about getting traveler's checks for a hotel stay, and has been getting more and more forgetful. This morning my mother called me. She said he had sworn her to not tell "the girls" (I have 4 sisters) but he was at church with...

Re: Bernie Sanders 2020

My mother says "they'd cut off their nose to spite their face." I guess I don't have that cutthroat attitude that a politician needs, but I'll never understand why a candidate needs to disparage someone from their own party. ESPECIALLY for this election! Just tell me your platform.

Re: War with Iran?

For 100 grand each place Iran could easily find some people to pour half a gallon of butyric acid into the central A/C of Trump properties. I worked in a plant that used butyric acid and butyric anhydride to make plastics for car interiors. It smells AWFUL and it's almost impossible to remove the s...

Re: What are you watching on TV these days?

Has anyone been watching "Making It" on NBC? This is the 2nd season of this crafting competition show, but they are showing all the episodes in a 2 week period so I get the feeling that NBC is just burning off the episodes. They just finished week 1. The show has 10 competitors, with 2 competitions ...

Re: Treating chronic pain

I used the oil for for a severe back problem that troubled me for several years. At first I thought is was a waste of money, but 3 weeks in the pain disappeared. When it returned later, I used the oil again for a month with the same results. When it works, it works! But not overnight. If you don't ...

Watching figure skating. Unfortunately the video has been removed due to a copyright claim. However, I watched both the men's and women's long programs. Boy, the men's was rough, except for Nathan's.

My mother had a weird drug reaction that sounds similar. Her doctors wanted to move her from Lorazepam to Prozac because the state regulations have changed making it more inconvenient for THEM. Anyway, she had to take both for a while because they aren't a 1:1 replacement. After 2+ months on the Pro...

That kind of pain is the worst pain in the world. I had a similar thing about 20 years ago and I still shudder to think about it. I read once that a guy tried to shoot out his bad tooth once, and I almost understand it.

It's awful that they can't give you anything for the pain. That's fucked up.
