  1. Storm a’Comin

    The heavy rain and mudslides are happening in southern CA (Los Angeles area), I am north of Sacramento--not happening here. Thanks for asking and for being concerned. <3
  2. 2018 January Free eBooks

    Hey, Ambergis..................... Did you know this about your screen name???
  3. Prayer

    I wasn't offended. But it is awkward to just put up a post or a link without some mention of why it has been posted, or at least a few words about it -- like you just did when you replied to me. To keep this thread going, perhaps you might like to mention the ideas about prayer that you were talking about so it can be discussed.
  4. Prayer

    That was quite a treatise! I am not sure if I am more informed or more distressed/depressed by having read it. It seems to spring out of a condemnation of the use of prayer books and established written prayers such as those published by the Papacy and possibly even the Church of England (book of common prayers). It goes way beyond that though in seeming to uphold the prayer methods of Quakerism, and is rife with elements of TULIP Calvinism!!! I shall try to glean the best points of it and try not to be brought down by it. BTW.....Was there a particular purpose or point you were trying to make by posting it???
  5. Hello - I'm back after a break

    Life happens in cycles. Glad it finally brought you back to us!
  6. McAfee Doesn't "Trust" This Site :/

    I recently subscribed to AT&T internet services. I was told that it came with anti-virus software. What I didn't know was that it had to be downloaded onto my computer....that's not what the installation tech told me. Anyway, I had finally discovered that MrsS was back up and running and started visiting her again....not a problem with my AVG virus program. Today I downloaded and installed the McAfee Suite which is part of my internet service and when I entered the URL McAfee said, "WHOA! Are you SURE you want to visit that site?" I had to click on a button that said "Accept the Risk" in order for it to open the site for me!!! WHAT is the major malfunction with McAfee? WHY doesn't it like this site???
  7. McAfee Doesn't "Trust" This Site :/

    Sorry Annarch, should have posted that the "problem" has been resolved!
  8. Pacemaker Needed

    I've been getting dizzy/lightheaded recently. Reported it to my cardiologist. Had a complete blood count and 24 hr Haltar test. Dizziness is not related to potassium levels. Heart rate is an average of 48 bpm with an occasional drop to 35 bpm. Cardiologist is setting up date for pacemaker surgery. Will let you know more once I know when it will be. Not really looking forward to it, but my primary was "excited" about it. He said, "You will have sooooo much more energy." The doc is very skilled at this, does it "all the time." But I think surgery is still scary!
  9. Pacemaker Needed

    DELAYED AGAIN. THis time due to an outbreak of "inverted acne." Have a bleeding lesion so I went to see my GYN the day before the pacemaker was scheduled. He took a swab of the blood and sent it to the lab to rule out a MRSA infection. Am currently taking Doxycycline for 10 days. See my GYN again on Jan 9th. for confirmation that the lesion is closed. On a good note, the pre-op labs and urinalysis for this procedure came back "clean"........no UTI detected. Medical name for the "acne" is hidradenitis suppurativa (in case you wanted to look it up. )
  10. Pacemaker Needed

    In and out in 6 hours!
  11. Pacemaker Needed

    Pacemaker now scheduled for THIS THURSDAY, Dec 14th! Getting labs done today; please pray that the UTI that has been causing me delays has NOT reappeared and that the procedure can proceed as scheduled. Thank you. <3
  12. I have a 7 1/5 foot tall tree that is almost totally with ornaments from the MrsS "family." Can you find yours? Or do you recognize one from someone who is no longer with us......for whatever the reason. Do you have any stories you can tell about how you made yours or what inspired your creation? Do you talk about them while you are hanging them on your tree? My son helped me string the lights on the tree this year, and I also had him help with putting the ornaments at the top of the tree. (Remember, the tree is over seven feet tall, and I am only 5'2") As I was unpackaging each ornament I was telling him where they came from, who made them, etc. Isn't THAT the REAL purpose of hanging ornaments on the tree anyway? Spending time with family and reminiscing about the good times (and sometimes the bad/sad). Anyway, here are pics of my tree. I hope you can find your ornament(s) and share a little bit from the heart with the other members of the "MrsS family."
  13. Christmas Ornaments of Years Gone By

    Does anyone remember this ornament? Is it even from a MrsS exchange? I thought it was, but my son pointed out the date on the back and I don't think MrsS was even "born" yet!!!
  14. Christmas Ornament Exchange, 2017

    Anxiously awaiting the pics of these awesome ornaments!!!
  15. Hi!

    WELCOME to MrsS. Take your time looking around, there is much to learn on here.
  16. Thanks ladies. It's been tossed.
  17. I have 1 or 2 cans of SPAM that are bulging! (Best by date was 2014) Can I still use them??? I called Hormel Foods and they said I can just throw the cans in the garbage; that there is no need to worry about botulism in the product. If that is indeed true, wouldn't the product still be "safe" to consume (except for some loss of "flavor")?
  18. Thanksgiving plans?

    Empty nest here and none of the kids have families (yet), so I will have Thanksgiving at home. My oldest son came up Thursday and spent the night. He just now left. Since my immediate family is so small and extended family is all on the east coast I don't "do" a big spread. In the last few years I've cooked a turkey, but not any of the "traditional" sides that go with it (because of all the work for feeding only THREE people, AND all of those aforementioned sides are LOADED with CARBS and I am a Type II diabetic). INSTEAD, we have turkey sandwiches! (You know; the reason everyone wants to take the leftovers home with them!) I roast the turkey and make the pumpkin pies and pumpkin "bread" (made with almond flour). I also make a salad of some kind and fry up the BACON for the club sandwiches. My son brings the croissants, tomatoes and sometimes chips. It is a pretty relaxing day this way, although not so much the day before! I asked him what he and his wife will do for Thanksgiving (when he finally meets and then marries her) -- traditional or sandwiches? He said they would probably go with the sandwich idea because he isn't too crazy about the sides that usually accompany the full turkey dinner anyway. THIS is what we had for dinner:
  19. Happy Thanksgiving!

    I hope everyone HAD a wonderful Thanksgiving and any travels for self and family were (or, are going to be) completed safely.
  20. Amazon Key

    Packages get stolen from front porches here all the time. Even in broad daylight! But a casual poll of my community still was a great big fat NO WAY IN H3LL!!! These same people said the same thing ya'll said......a locked BOX on the front porch, or deliver to a business where you have a PO Box, etc.
  21. Did anyone watch "Criminal Minds" on TV last night? I only ask because I was extremely surprised at the attitude that was expressed by the characters about the "prepper" community! I was of the naive assumption that disparaging "preppers" had long gone by the wayside. Boy, was I WRONG!!! The BAU was investigating the disappearance of several professional women in Virginia. Their investigation led them to believe that a "prepper" was snatching these women so they would be available to help restart the world after TEOTWAWKI. The discussion about the characteristics of the "unsub" they were looking for included him being paranoid, obsessed with the "Doomsday Clock," hoarding food and fuel, etc. You know......................everything the general population believed about us prior to, and immediately after Y2K! I almost could not believe my ears! At any rate, I just thought I'd let you know that the "sheeple" are STILL being fed misleading, disparaging, and dangerous information about us "preppers.'
  22. Pacemaker Needed

    Primary doc had a "colony count" lab performed on my urine sample. It appears that I have an 'escherichia coli' bladder infection. This is what I have been able to find about that: So now I am on Augmentin for 14 days, then get retested.
  23. Concerning Halloween

    Satan is a liar and the father of lies! Halloween (All Hallow's Eve) is a celebration of the victory of Christ over the powers of darkness. We have let them steal it from us!!! ------------------------
  24. I need to get my tinfoil hat on....

    Portland is, unfortunately, one of the cities targeted by antifa for violence on the 4th. You mentioned in one of your other posts that once you reach your destination you stay in a hotel. It might not be a bad idea to take a "day trip" or sightseeing trip on the 4th. Get thee out of Dodge! (But you should probably pack as if you were checking out--leave nothing behind.
