  1. Good Morning! Stars, I echo everyone else in wish you the best. I know you guys did what was best for your own living situation and to take care of nannie as well, not knowing it would be so hard. Just take it one day day at a time and try to take care of yourselves however it plays out. If taking care of nannie and keeping a promise means looking after her seeing that she's safely put away needs to be done, that still fulfills the family duty in my opinion. Hope it doesn't come to that but you can only do so much for so long. There's no medication that fixes dementia. Hugs. Joe, hope J is feeling well enough to go out with you. Hope you had a good day. BC, having a good assistant is a Godsend. Our long term forecast looks like typical winter upper 60's and low 70's, but Naples being south can have much better weather. I'll order you up some. Regardless getting away will be good and it's usually about 50 degrees warmer down there than New England. Working an overtime shift that I didn't plan on. Quick made some quinoa and threw a can of salt-free pinto beans and seasoning to have a clean lunch. Probably going to have veggie brats for dinner since I'm not prepared. Anyway, sadly my realistic, tending towards negative attitude knows it's going to be a rough shift. Being nice and volunteering to help out always slaps me in the face. . Hope everyone has a great day. Better post and beat Ted as I see him "down there'.
  2. Good Morning! Working today just one day since I did Sunday and Monday this week. I can handle it. Had a decent day off. High was 81 but didn't need to turn on the air conditioner. One more day of nice weather in the upper 70's before rain and a cold front comes through and you guys up north send winter back down. Hope everyone has a nice day.

    Perhaps, things don't look good on the Republican side, they've gambled on Trump and I hope it blows up in their face, Again we're showing that I'm more pessimistic than you. I have no faith in the average person. I've talked to people that really know nothing about current events or the impeachment. I bumped into our former VP of Nursing the other day that just retired. She's educated on a post graduate level and super intelligent. We didn't talk politics but she mentioned "I know a lot of people don't like Trump, but the economy is good" and made no mention about his being dishonest, being impeached or anything whatsoever other than "I'm getting mine". I wouldn't describe her as a "Trumpster" beyond hope, but more of an average person. Also, I've talked to some people, like coworkers that are totally clueless about current events. They aren't Trumpsters but average people. In a way it's understandable but I wonder who, if anyone, they'd vote for being so uninformed or maybe just getting bits and pieces. I sometimes feel clueless myself. Like who is Lev Parnas and why is he suddenly news. It's a bit overwhelming at times. https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/16/politics/lev-parnas-cnn-interview/index.html
  4. Good morning! Joe, hope you were able to get together with J. J22, glad the device is checking out okay and sorry it's still tender to touch. Hope it gets better as time goes on. Stars, hope the gypsies behave. Glad you're MD appointment went okay. Ted, hope you continue to enjoy the days off. I can imagine composing isn't something that would get easier as time when on. It seems that's one of those things that you establish how to do and it is what it is, with everyone having their own style. I enjoyed the Celine Dion concert a lot. She's looking and sounding great, very energetic, and an appreciate adoring sold out crowd. Because of the concert I arranged my schedule to be off the "dreaded Thursday". Good thing since I went to bed after midnight. Nothing much going on today but have some household chores to do.

    I might agree,but the average person doesn't see this. It also allowed the other side to show how the delay proves there is no more additional evidence, they have no credible case, they are being cowardly in moving on. It showed she has no leverage at all with Republicans. It would have been more effective had they had all their ducks in a row. It's not like they didn't have time. If they have enough evidence for articles of impeachment, they should have moved on with it. In my opinion. I still say at this moment in time McConnell nailed it and came out ahead. I'd be happy if Pelosi came out on top in the end. She's no fool either. However, it still might be to her advantage. The republican senate will not convict and will make a mockery of it all. I think in an election year, the quicker it's done and over the better.

    Presidential Election 2020

    I know there's cattiness on both sides, and it comes with every election. I'm used to that. But this guy made me spit out my coffee and laugh out loud at his ignorant catty statements. Never mind that Trump is a white septuagenarian himself. https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2020/01/fox-news-host-questions-whether-pete-buttigieg-actually-gay/?fbclid=IwAR25C6cRxPu1S1esTRjPB-QQU23hwbrTn-V7kpwVASqWNOwuv7x1-qC4PLg

    It's hard to keep up with. Now donor and congressional candidate (who Tweeted an obscene tweet about K. Harris) is involved in the Yovanovitch tracking. Trump, of course would gladly throw them all under the bus and say he knew nothing about it. But my opinion is that is you're playing in the crap pile, and have crap all over you, you know. Actually he's going to say it's fake news and part of the witch hunt and presidential harassment of him by the Democrats and their partners in the Fake News Media.
  8. Good morning! Ted, hope you enjoyed your date with your wife and got some rest after the work week. BC, glad you're feeling better. That was one annoying patient. Hope the weather in Florida holds out for you, but even if it's 60 degrees visitors from your part of the world don't bundle up and sit outside and read, so I'm sure you'll have a good time. J22, that is a bizarre situation with the electric bill, but at least you're not going to be hit with six months of bills at once. AmoL, I tend to leave things on my kitchen counter for days and weeks sometimes. Hope you have no incidences of rolling around traffic. Yikes. Had a fitful night of waking up often, but was able to fall asleep after each episode. Got woken up by a Gmail notification on my phone. Apparently I signed up for New York Times emails to get at 6AM when best friend wanted me to read a travel article he emailed me. Dentist went okay. The good news is last years implant looked good on X-ray and implanted itself in my jaw very well. The bad news is that I have some gingivitis on the gum in front of the implant. He described it "you have a pimple there"....gross. I was a little sore but really didn't notice. So I'm being treated with a rinse and need to go back in two weeks for a check up. Like I said, I hate going in for a cleaning and exam because it's always something. He advised me also to get a water pick and start using that. Ordered one on Amazon like a good patient. Ordered a new Japanese tea pot and cups while I was ordering my water pick. No justification for that other than I wanted one. Tonight is Celine Dion in concert. Been a fan of hers for a long time and looking forward to it. Got tomorrow off which is why I worked three in a row. Our electronic W2's have been posted and I'm going to gather my stuff together and hopefully do my taxes here in a bit. My taxes are quite easy to do and I hope to get a refund. We've been having great winter weather. It was over 80 yesterday and will be in the mid-70's today. Hope everyone has a great day.
  9. Good morning! BC, so glad to hear that you're on the mend. Hope you continue to get to 100% well. Ted, hope you're surviving your back to back 12's yesterday which included church and little sleep. Work was okay. I was assigned a busy patient that had some medical issues that were somewhat time consuming. But she's holding her own. 90 years old without an advocate other than some lawyer that will do everything, and a out-of-state daughter that has nothing to do with her and is not her POA but has a court order to proceed with competency evaluations. The nursing home she lives says there is no daughter to be found. Odd situation. I just bumped it up my chain of command. Working today. Didn't see and OR schedule to see how many are coming in today. Day 3 of 3 12's in a row. Not complaining as I'm rested and having good days. Looking forward to knocking this day out. I'm going to miss bowling tonight. Our team is in first place as we were the only team to win all games the first week. Hope everyone has a good day.
  10. Good Morning! Yesterday was not bad. Decent staffing and people behaving. We got the usual shift change admission which set me a little behind. Could have left exactly on time but noooo...... Hope everyone has a great day. BC hope you can rest and recover.
  11. Good morning! Working today first of three in a row. I won't complain since Ted is doing 4. Oh well, maybe I will. Had a decent day off. Washed the sheets, went to the gym and prepared three beans and quinoa lunches, and some whole wheat orzo with mushrooms and tempeh for dinners. Had a Korean tofu dish for dinner. Still sticking to my cleanish diet of no processed foods, meat, dairy, added oils, sugar or salt. Mainly this means not stress eating at work. I find if I don't start eating the candy or donuts and just leave them alone I won't overeat them. Ya think? I 'm not one of those "oh just one" type of eaters. The scale is stuck, but that's okay, I did manage to get six pounds of extra fat off. BP has responded somewhat better for the most part to the good eating 119/69 last night before bed. Even at work the other day it was 132/82...hypertensive by the new guidelines of being over 130/80, but under the 160/90 my doctor wants "a man of your age" to be. I'll break my diet soon enough as I have some dinner plans next week. Better close now as the page spontaneously refreshed but this time saved what I wrote but not the title. Getting the "this webpage is using significant memory. Closing it may improve the responsiveness of your Mac.". So I'd best close. Have a great day.

    Winning...the economy under Trump

    A mixed bag ending the year. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/01/10/us-nonfarm-payrolls-december-2019.html?fbclid=IwAR2_vejajUTfPqjFhGeeuDDkUg1i5ocBko_nWalNmWUCcXf5-A0p0tAoLy8

    The Congressional Thread

    Pence says the proof is too sensitive for congress to know, so we'll never know. Even if Trump offered up proof would you believe him? Again, we're in the position of believing a man that lies multiple times a day and a VP that supports those lies. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/national-security/pence-says-sharing-intel-congress-could-compromise-sources-n1112791
  14. I hit something that erased my post. So I will say hope that those are sick get well, hope that those are working have a good day. Hope Nannie behaves, and hope the retired and off people have a good day as well.
  15. Did you report the thread? It comes to their attention quicker if you do that. I think.
