  1. WE2, if the dog is to be an outside dog, then a Ridgeback is NOT a good choice. They do not do well as strictly outside dogs.
  2. Consider asking your dr for a glucagon prescription. It's an injectable chemical designed to counteract a deep low sugar event by forcing the liver to dump all its glucose at once. After DH suffered a 37 one night recently (thank God I woke up for it!), we got a glucagon shot to have around. Beware though they are expensive! But it can save your life when nothing else will. Typically though someone other than the patient does the injection.
  3. I tend to use flightaware.com
  4. Yesterday was spent cutting trees for firewood for next winter. We need to cut in the cold/cool weather, as once it warms up, it'll be miserable--ticks, mosquitos, fire ants...humidity and poison ivy! This large tree was felled in an ice storm a couple years ago, but was still usable. Lovely old growth oak! In excess of 20" diameter.
  5. From what I gather, it was much ado about nothing. Something like 20 people showed up in Portland and read manifestos. 50 were reported doing the same in Cleveland. No one else in the other listed cities reported anything out of the ordinary.
  6. Yesterday was wood splitting day for me. Plum wore myself out! Got a lot split (thank you Lord for that hydraulic splitter!) Today was Orthopedic visit day, involving a 3hr drive round trip. Diagnosis? Tendonitis in my foot. Pred pack for 6 days and reassess.
  7. Good job folks! Is there some way the old posts could be archived in an accessible form? Separate server or cloud maybe?
  8. Hope that getting a new PM will make your life easier and more energetic. Prayers for Gary with all that has been plaguing him this year...
  9. And Larry David has southern slave owning, Confederate ancestors...thus so does that old Commie, Bernie Sanders! But the Antifa will never confront him about it...
  10. Thursday is the annual North Texas Giving Day, and a 501c3 dog rescue that I personally support, is participating in the event. The rescue is Texas Independent Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue, aka TIRR Rescue. Here is a link to my blogpost about the event, and it includes a link for those who feel led to donate. Anyone can donate--you do not need to live in North Texas to donate. Even if you choose not to help financially, if you would be so kind as to share the donation link on your social media pages, and with your friends? It would be a huge help in getting the word out. Giving Day Link Thank you!
  11. HOpefully the owners, Kimba, have things like hurricane shutters (aka plywood sheets) to bolt over windows etc to help preserve the structure.
  12. Just a heads up to any of our folks on the east coast\ Current tracks show Irma growing into another major hurricane, and heading toward the east coast/Florida. Keep an eye on this storm, and have your preps and plans in place and checked! Keep your gasoline topped up too.
  13. possible cat3 at landfall tonight. Up to 3ft of rain possible in places over the next 5 days...
  14. Harvey is now a hurricane, and is expected to strengthen to Cat3 or 4 by landfall tomorrow. Landfall looks to be along the Texas coast near Corpus Christi. Forecast is for it to stall inland, causing catastrophic flooding, expecially Houston which is basically a paved over swamp anyway. (Worse than TS Allison they say). IF you live along the TX and LA coast or lowlands, please plan accordingly.
  15. HOpe it all goes well for you. The PM should help.
  16. Wow, MTR, I missed this thread over the last few days! I am relieved that DH is doing better, having that new machine around will be good. I hope you are able to get some rest too. You both need rest and time to heal/recover. I'll keep you both in prayers, esp for God to provide some help around the property to fix fences!
  17. Today's tasks include grocery necessities , trying to rearrange DH's dr appts, working on the a/c condensation problem , slaying the laundry beast, sweeping, weight training , and whatever else comes up !
  18. HAL: Dave, stop. Stop, will you? Stop, Dave. Will you stop Dave? Stop, Dave.
  19. We are traveling up to KS for the eclipse. Our old hometown is right on the edge of totality. It's 30+miles from anything! Should be about perfect, assuming it isn't cloudy.
  20. Ouch, MTR! Did not know your DH was having serious health issue! I will pray for you both.

    Lyme Vaccine?

    DH and I both had the full series of 3 shots for Lymerix. We had no adverse reactions. Here are a pair of good articles about what happened. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2870557/ https://academic.oup.com/cid/article/52/suppl_3/s253/444754/Vaccines-against-Lyme-Disease-What-Happened-and
