    Housing development really needs to be carefully planned. I live in a small condo community with small multi-unit quadriplexes (like 4 small units come together at the interior point, like AZ, UT, CO & NM in the 'Four Corners' west states. I really only think of my next-door neighbor as my neighbor, like in a semi-attached home where our center wall is adjoining. Well, about 1 month ago, there was a BIGGGG FIRE in a unit building abutting the communal parking lot across to my unit. It made all the local TV news accounts. I SLEPT THRU IT!!! Never awoke from the noise or smell! That situation has really caused me some deep thought. I'm homebound, totally dependent with my walker, and I move slowly. I think - what would happen if that fire jumped the parking lot? Add to the situation that I have supplemental oxygen tanks for my cpap. And only a front door. Damn! I don't want to be an evening news bulletin! I believe the unit that started that fire was Twsp-owned. I don't know but they may have provided some special housing arrangement. And we do have a few unit rentals that are limited in numbers because too many rentals in a community makes for difficult mortgaging & financing. I'm really giving some thought to my safety and that on a larger scale. Am posting this not to lose it. To be continued ...

    BC - your menu sounds great. But - WHAT THE H*LL IS AVOCADO TOAST!?!?!? I freq see it mentioned, but I've wondered. Just smashed avocado smeared on toast, crackers, chips, etc??? I like avocadoes, but they've become so $$$ I don't buy them too often. It's only me here and the avocadoes have to be juuuust right. So they're a treat.

    It's amazing what I sooo missed while hospsitalized. Like just reading along here. And SALT! But boy was I EVER EVER EVER enlightened re hospital care and nsg. I better understand a few things now. MUCH MUCH MUCH better experience this time around, but to quote Dorothy, "there's no place like home"! (There's no ruby slippers emojii, but I love my red high heels!!! I've prob a dozen or so - from my skinny, hot-to-trot days. Can't wear them today, but I will NEVER NEVER throw them out!).

    Hey, Joe. Isn't there something in wine that is supposed to NOT be good for headaches? Something in the fermentation process? Reds are the really bad, I believe.

    Do you think this is a scam?

    I LIKE YOUR TACT!!! Maybe I'll try the itty bitty Hungarian I know from childhood. There's a Youtube clip of how a guy responds to scammers with one word, "YES". He answers "YES" to every question the scammer asks. On & on, he "YES"s to the scammer for questions on end. Hysterical! You can hear the scammer become excited (like wow, he's got a live one). Then scammer sounds befuddled. And then he becomes annoyed and you hear his deep breathe exhale. Finally, the scammer has had enough and asks "are you an idiot?' and hangs up. Funny as hell!

    Must be HEADACHE season. Had one also yesterday. But I was on the PC googling Urgent Care Facilities near me and for medical transportation. And I need to be SEEN by a practitioner. I think I've a swollen right parotid gland. Like a HUUUUGE chipmunk cheek or those baseball guys who chew those big tobacco plugs. I no longer drive and there's nobody to drive me around with all my travel needs. I can get delivered grocery service; even my PMP makes housecalls for routine prescheduled visits. But this swollen face came up AFTER her last visit and she wants me to be seen somewhere. All that googling and subsequent phonecalls has me batty!

    Do you think this is a scam?

    Am reading this late - not too long ago, I received one of those 'the IRS is investigating your account and you will be prosecuted blah blah blah' calls. Only then it was a British voice with a very official sounding clipped accent! Like that was supposed to further impress upon me the seriousness of the scam!

    OK, nix the Benadryl cream altho I doubt much absorbs.

    NSIME - another suggestion. Benadryl topical oint. Maybe the itch makes her pick and the picking makes for more itching? Vicious cycle.

    NSIME - how about a really slick topical cream? Aquaphor is MAGICAL!!! Eucerin (same manufacturer) would be a good second choice. Aquaphor really soothes the itch and takes care of the 'snowflakes'. I get some dependent edema and the skin gets very flaky. Aquaphor works. I've seen here on AN where wound nurses use it for some skin care problems.

    herring - I'm late so a belated Happy Birthday! I have this quirk that I happen to remember birthdays. Old neighbors, kids from grammar school, distant cousins; I remember the dates. Like yesterday was BF's birthday and today it's a cousin I haven't talked to in a big while. Sometimes I"ll look at a calandar and think the date's familiar. Then I'll remember whose BD.
