    crochet

    If you are a visual sort of person like I am , go to Youtube and start a search , there are really great tutorials there.I too learned by trial and error, still cant (or dont want to) follow a crochet pattern. Kind of figured out how to do it myself, much less frustrating to me, all those symbols and abbreviations make me cross eyed.

    OK, so now what? How can I have a diagnosis I don't believe in?

    Your symptoms sound almost identical to mine before I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Been on Synthroid for many years now and never had any of those symptoms return, except when my levels were off, which was only once or twice in 20 years.

    Final Debate Cyber Watch Party

    They say after menopause men and women get along so much better cause women have more testosterone and men have more estrogen as they age, so we become basically unisex! Signed, post menopausal and lovin' it!

    WRONG, Fannie and Freddie had nothing to do with it. http://www.mcclatchydc.com/251/story/53802.html Private sector loans, not Fannie or Freddie, triggered crisis By David Goldstein and Kevin G. Hall | McClatchy Newspapers WASHINGTON-As the economy worsens and Election Day approaches, a conservative campaign that blames the global financial crisis on a government push to make housing more affordable to lower-class Americans has taken off on talk radio and e-mail. Commentators say that's what triggered the stock market meltdown and the freeze on credit. They've specifically targeted the mortgage finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which the federal government seized on Sept. 6, contending that lending to poor and minority Americans caused Fannie's and Freddie's financial problems. Federal housing data reveal that the charges aren't true, and that the private sector, not the government or government-backed companies, was behind the soaring subprime lending at the core of the crisis. Subprime lending offered high-cost loans to the weakest borrowers during the housing boom that lasted from 2001 to 2007. Subprime lending was at its height vrom 2004 to 2006. Federal Reserve Board data show that: _ More than 84 percent of the subprime mortgages in 2006 were issued by private lending institutions. _ Private firms made nearly 83 percent of the subprime loans to low- and moderate-income borrowers that year. _ Only one of the top 25 subprime lenders in 2006 was directly subject to the housing law that's being lambasted by conservative critics.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/10/11/AR2008101100173.html Blame Game Gets Nasty When It Targets the Poor Why are the conservatives so ready to blame the segment of the population who's income more closely resembles their own,( unless they belong to the 5% who make over $250,000. a year). Why favor the fat cats who were parachuted out of their companies on a golden ride?

    http://www.businessweek.com/investing/insights/blog/archives/2008/09/community_reinv.html Community Reinvestment Act had nothing to do with subprime crisis Lack of oversight and runaway greed , simple as that.

    Findings: Palin did abuse power

    She violated an ethics law, why is this so hard to believe ? Note finding number one. Of course her BIL was a scum bag , but she abused her authority by letting her husband use his relationship to her as Governor and his wife, in trying to get Wooten fired, what right does he have to get private phone numbers, etc, of public employees. Two wrongs dont make a right.

    What a surprise: Government evesdropping on citizens

    Oh yes, I know this is true , when my daughter was stationed at GTMO , there were obvious beeps and clicks on the line, we would sometimes get silly and say some very boring stuff about how to cook a turkey or even a woman's monthly cycle, oh they got an earful.
