    INDEED prayer IS FREE and hey we do not need to make an appointment ! We do NOT have to worry if our device has power !! We do not need to worry about what if we drop our device,,, is that the END of it !? Noppers !!

    I am so happy to hear Ray is doing better. it does help you when he is. Oh the pant thing !! Yuppers the previous summer, fall of 15 I had GAINED SO MUCH !! Shoot when I found myself buying a BIGGER SIZE I was HORRIFIED as you are feeling,, YEAH We BOTH took action !! CONGRATTERS my friend !! YEAH !!

    My unit is FINALLY back to it's original shape from the flood. Hey they did an EXCELLENT job for it only took a week for the 10 of us (out of 100) to recover our places,, well 9 of us. Hmmm the pipe burst in 302 and I am not sure, but she may receive an eviction notice. It was NOT her fault it broke (it's NOT good if it is ones fault,,, open windows when it's so cold. We are NOT to have our windows open from Nov 15th to March 15 so when one does,,, they HAVE to pay a fine (2nd time they get an evict notice PLUS a fine). If one DOES cause it,,,, they are financially responsible for ALL the damage that occurred ! I'd NOT to be that ! Any hows (i jump around here and there huh? Our sanities are out partying because our bodies got older and POOF OUT they WENT !) when they entered her unit,, HOARDER ,, a very dirty one. That's simply NOT allowed especially in a high rise !! She's deaf ,, perhaps her parents kept her sheltered so she may not of learned. Hopefully she'll realize there are hoarding specialists in our area and get the help she needs. of course not all insurances pay for them and incomes here vary so much. I am guessing since she's rather young and deaf likely she's on social security. :Hopefully she'll be able to secure a house cleaner. I did it when I couldn't hardly walk,, which is when I first found Sparks. It was so valuable and needed. I had personal care in that also,,, for showering was more than scary though at first it's FREAKY to have someone help you. I am sooo glad I can do all I need now myself. HUGS And I hope all will keep going very well !

    Thanks for the idea. I will google Melatonin and Serotonin to see if there are food I could get into the mix. I read stuff about depression and SAD but nothing on melatonin and serotonin, might be worth it to look at it more deeply!
