I would much rather have the snow than the sleet and freezing rain. I hate those. We are getting thunderstorms. It will be sunny and warm until then though. Rain for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday too.

Porkie is still having a lot of problems and hubby and I am busy taking care of him. It's very anxiety producing, depressing, and physically and mentally draining. I do my best to support both Porkie and my hubby during this difficult time. I am calm on the outside and a mess inside.

Porkie and I were both doing better but that changed when the weather changed. Last night he started gagging again and having some problems breathing which is ongoing this morning. My leg started back up too but is not as bad as it was.

I like to sleep in a cool room and seem to sleep better if it it. We don't have central air as we have no duct work. We have 3 window A/Cs. They are enough when you have a small house like ours.

How is Porkie doing? How's your leg? You've either been quiet on both subjects for a couple of days or I've been missing out...

Had to switch over to a/c Tuesday night. The house was up to 77 which is too warm for sleeping. It just doesn't seem right for only March. The heat hadn't been running for at least a week, maybe more, but that's the best. when neither hear nor a/c are necessary. A/C is set for 80 day, 78 evenings and 74 for night. It kicked on yesterday evening so it was really warm inside. DH will need to put in the window unit for the sun room this weekend because it warms up first and fastest!

My husband pointed it out to me. I would not see robins in the winter in our yard so I assumed that they migrated but when we would walk in the deep woods we would find them and he told me then about this. The yard is frozen in winter here most of the time so the robins don't bother with it until it starts to thaw and then they are there after the worms and grubs that come up. They change their diet at that time of year. That is why people see so many of them in Spring. The fruit is picked over and other food starts to appear. Weirdly, even reptiles, like wild turtles, change their diet over a season - turtles are omnivores and eat a lot of variety but only at certain times. They like strawberries in strawberry season and cantaloupe in cantaloupe season. They are not as interested in it at other times when they are eating a lot of protein.

When my hubby and I met we were both into science, only different aspects of it - I was into anatomy & physiology, microbiology, genetics, astronomy, earth science like geology, volconology, meteorology, etc. I would take some of these classes in college for electives in addition to things like physics and chemistry I was required to take. He was into ornithology, botany, especially mycology, zoology, fiberoptics, electricity, etc. So we inspired each other to check out the other's interests and due to that I became very interested in animals, mushrooms, plants, birds. He taught me how to garden. I got him into rocks and minerals. I taught him about the solar system and stars and he bought me my dream telescope. I bought him science books, camera and metal detector. We had an unusual courtship. LOL. It was not about movies and dinners. It was very exciting for both of us though. I'm sure it would have bored most people. We still spend a lot of time outdoors. My dad is an outdoor person.

That's an interesting tidbit because the ONLY time we see robins is very early spring. We always presumed they were headed north. Maybe that's where they find their preferred food sources? It used to be we'd see a small flock hopping around for just a day or two before disappearing for the year but the past couple of years they have stayed around for a week or two before moving on.

Robins are not driven only by weather like birds that migrate every year but they are food driven. If there is plenty of food some will stay and winter over. If not they will fly somewhere else that has food. Ours end up staying here in mild winters. They mainly like fruit in winter..

You must have the robins that spent last month here in FL. I need to do an amended return. It's a first so I'm not quite sure how - thus I have been procrastinating. It won't make much difference but I might own them a few bucks back from our refund.

There are a lot of robins here now. I finally got my taxes done - getting a lot less back this year.

we're starting to see some of the robins but not too many yet, they must know something we don't about the weather....

it's finally staring to warm up and melt some of the snow from last week, glad that week is over.
I'm doing a load of laundry with another to do after my nap, I'm wiped out. Happy Sunday, and I can't wait for my hummers to come back, usually in May.

Another sunny warm day and hubby is going to plant lettuce. I will work on paperwork outside.

Porkie didn't want his meds or to eat early today so we had to try again later on and he ate better. He doesn't want his antibiotic and has to take it until Friday. He was hungry later one. He is losing weight though.

You gave Pepper a good life. I love her name.

I consider hunger a good sign. We had to let Pepper go when she refused to eat, no matter what we tempted her with. The few times we were successful in getting a couple of bites down her, it didn't stay long. She was wasting away before our eyes and it was breaking my heart.

I still think of her and miss her regularly. I loved her dearly even though she was the most stubborn and challenging dog we've ever had. She had us constantly on our toes! She was "spicy" and she burned through her life quickly, like a roaring inferno..

I nixed the menthol ones. I bought both the plain and the one with Lidocaine. I tried the plain and it worked. I will look for the Arnica Gel.

I hope the antibiotics are working. He at least is hungry now.

Did you get the Aspercream with Lidocaine? I've pretty much found the topical rubs to be useless because the active ingredient is usually menthol, which does nothing for me. They have started adding lidocaine so they actually are some better.

One that worked well for my leg muscle pain when it was so bad was the homeopathic Arnica gel. I was skeptical but many in the Tai Chi society are familiar with, and use, it. The only places I know to get it are health food stores or online.

Happy to hear that Porkie is somewhat better. Maybe the antibiotics are helping heal the ulcer in his mouth.

I love hummingbirds. We don't get them until usually late April.

The weather does affect my arthritis. It is better in the summer.

Today is sunny and 55. Hubby is starting some pepper, tomato, and impatiens transplants. I took down the St. Patrick's Day decorations and will put up the Easter and Spring ones.

I bought some Aspercreme and tried it. Some experts say muscle rubs don't work but I could tell the difference between the parts I put it on and the parts I didn't. I'm not one to have the placebo effect. I was comfortable enough that I slept most of the night.

Porkie is more hungry now and it eating a little on his own out of his bowl a couple of times a day and we syringe feed him twice a day. This weekend we will feed him 3 times a day. It still hurts him to eat due to the mouth ulcer and he gags and squeaks sometimes but he is more comfortable and he sleeps better.

I think spring must finally (really) be here. The 10-day forecast is the perfect 50-80 split for temps and yesterday evening I saw the first hummingbird of the year.

I tried Vanilla Sleepytime tea last night and slept for almost 4 hours straight until I awakened with horrible arthritis pain in my left leg. I ended up taking a Tylenol and got a little more sleep.

Porkie tried to eat a little out of his bowl in the night and was sitting on top of his sleep bag today. He ate well but gagged some.

Rain and thunderstorms here.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

In the teens here this morning but warming up. I am ready for spring!

I am tired and still sleepy. I finally got more work done yesterday. Porkie didn't eat well during the night but ate well this morning.

I'm done with shoveling ( I hope), had to shovel my sidewalk and end of driveway where it was plowed in, got to the Town Hall, shoveled there, before I go have coffee with my Honey, I pick up an elderly lady's paper for her and shoveled there, went to get groceries for the dinner at the Legion for this fri. had to shovel out the garbage and recycle cans at the Legion. the Village idiot who plows buried the cans. When I got home I started to shovel my driveway but my brother just got home from work and he came over with his tractor and kinda plowed me out.
Everyone stay warm and think SPRING!!!!!!!

Only in the 50's here today in N. Florida, which is rather unusual. Normally March yells out "hey, it's spring!". Flowers blooming, trees leaving out (which they are) bird song most all day. It is supposed to (just maybe) freeze tonight so I have to cover the tomatoes and peppers. Already flowers on the tomatoes so I'd hate to lose them.

Spark is noticeably quieter this week for me. I never "collected" all that many friends or teams but since I've cut back to under 20 friends and 2 teams there is silence on my phone, which notified me every time a notification e-mail came through - a wall post, a forum discussion, friend "likes", etc. etc. etc. I haven't lost anything important by cutting back, it just "feels" a bit odd.

I woke at 4:44am, and looked out the window, it was already snowing so I got ready & went to work, shoveled the sidewalks, put down some calcium chloride, put out the garbage and watered the plants and got the heck out of there, it was already 3-4 inches on the roads. We also cancelled our County meeting that was supposed to be tonight. Now I can sit inside & look out at the snow coming down. Will be saying a Prayer for Porkie and hope everything is all right

Sounds horrible, Janice.

We got some snow and the ground is covered but it may not last long as it is above freezing. I had to get out in it to clean off the internet dish.

We are both tired. DST is hard to deal with on top of taking care of sick pets but I like DST so I will eventually adapt.

Porkie is going to have surgery this week so I hope you will keep him in your prayers. He is not in good health but we need to find out what is causing his pain. If he really has cancer or not or if he has more dental problems.So we are praying that Porkie is strong enough to survive, that he doesn't have cancer, that he has a simple problem that can be fixed, that he has no post op complications, that the pain is better, and he will be back to his former self.

Yes, Janice did get a lot of steps that day! I usually max out under 15K, even on especially active days.

Glad your babies are improving, Morticia, although I am sure it feels like it is taking them a very long time. Someday...

That is a lot of steps!!

Blocker is back to normal today and the extra dose of pain med is helping Porkie. He is eating more and resting better. Still gagging, crying out in pain sometimes, but some definite improvement.

I'm sure I will be messed up a while due to DST. We may get snow tomorrow. It was chilly today but Tuesday will be our coldest day.

when I woke up yesterday (Sat.) morning I had a pain in my right foot I thought my foot was broke, when I checked my FITBIT steps from Fri. I had 16,204, between that and the storm coming in, no wonder my feet were killing me. We had our Corned Beef dinner at Church last night, we sold out but not sure how much money we made yet.MORTICIAADDAMS, hope your fur babies are still doing okay.

It turned colder here too and was supposed to snow today but we only got a few flurries. Spring is that way here a lot.

Our local vet returned from vacation and called me right away. She gave me some info on how to help Porkie. Blocker refused lunch today so hopefully she is okay.

Last night I was determined to sleep so I ate foods known to help with it - chamomile tea, cashews, a banana, and a piece of dark chocolate. I didn't notice much difference but I did have a headache in the night. Maybe tonight will be better.

They say we're headed for much colder weather next week. It's been mid-70's to low 80's with lows in the sixties but they are predicting something closer to a 34 low-60 high split coming.mid-week.

I agree also, when I go on my e-mails in the morning, I have 70-80 emails, half of them from cousins on Facebook, who I don't see because they live in another state. Is anybody getting any weird (cold) weather?? it's freezing here in upstate NY with a huge storm coming in on Tues. I need warmer weather.....have a great weekend

I don't get any points for any of that stuff either. When I first joined sparkpeople I could get all the points but it gets less all the time. I need to let some friends go too. Some of them quit long ago and others just added me on a whim. I hope you stay. I would miss you horribly.

Yes, I've seen all the points options for "sharing" and "following" and I've earned zero points doing so. Sorry - NOT interested. As I said, I am winnowing out "friends" and will soon be down to just two teams and I will decide from there how long I will stay (or not). I'll stay here for for you, Janice & Karen although you and Kerry both share another team that I'll be keeping...for awhile anyway.

I can relate. I avoided social media for years. I have friends who are eager to hold onto their youth and they always join everything new and they always plead with me to join too. They inferred that we could be so much closer if I would stop being antisocial and join in the wonderful world of social media. So, reluctantly,after lots of their dry begging I joined one social media chat site, a few "live messaging" groups, and Facebook. They were all worthless. On the chat site I received tons of unwanted attention from creepy married males and their single female admires who considered me as major competition for the hearts/loins of their slugs even though I was not interested at all. No one was ever available to chat on the messingers because they had moved on to another one and "please, please, please join the new one". I got plenty of gross strangers hitting on me though with explicit messages. And the friend who begged me to join facebook just wanted someone to play Farmville so I could give her stuff she needed for the game. We are no longer friends. If you are dumb enough, yes I am calling myself dumb, to join these things you quickly learn that a lot of young people post every lame thought that enters their head and everything they do all day long. For instance I had one young person who added me as a friend who would post a picture of 2 animals and say that one of them was me and one was her. There are tons of pictures of funny quotes, selfies looking up some homely person's nose, grumpy cat, political fighting, and of course, the occasional pervert.I kept tightening up who could access my page but it didn't help because a stalker I had avoided for years followed me by adding a friend of mine and then showed up on my page through her. I finally filtered everyone off of my page and started dismantling it. I don't miss the posts from the younger generation with IQs of 70 announcing, "I just had a gigantic poo!!! Toilet clogger! I feel great."Yuck.

If you check out the sparkpoint page there is

1.Share SparkPeople content to Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter 3 points (max 9 / day)
2.Share SparkRecipes content to Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter 3 points (max 9 / day)
3.Post My Status or Fitness Activity to Facebook 1 point / post (max 2 / day)
4."Like" SparkPeople on Facebook 25 Points
5."Follow" SparkPeople on Twitter 25 points
6."Follow" SparkPeople on Google+ 25 points
7."Follow" SparkPeople on Pinterest 25 points
8. "Follow" SparkPeople on Instagram 25 points

They are offering a huge chunk of points for this crap. And the community feed is almost exactly like facebook!

I stay here for my friends. I really miss the ones who have left. If it wasn't for that, I would have left long ago.

Am I really the only person in this world who has no idea related to Facebook references emoticon I've never been on any of the social media sites (I consider Spark to be a healthy lifestyle site) so I'm never sure exactly what people mean other that the changes here seem to strongly resemble the feel of the other sites.

I can definitely understand participation dropping off - it is becoming increasingly difficult to navigate to where I want to be. I am gradually removing my Spark footprint, so to speak, saying goodbye to my more casual friends and leaving teams. Soon I will be down to just SB and the team I co-lead. Sorry to say, but I've told the leader of the other team that I may decide to leave Spark entirely soon. It's not as enjoyable as it used to be and I DO have other things to be doing...

I wonder if they are phasing out teams and are moving toward a facebook format. Sparkpeople has been facebook chummy for a long time. A lot of the points they offer are tied into facebook and other social sites. The last few changes they made really hurt team participation. Some of my teams used to be very active but not any more. They seem to want to cater toward a younger crowd who wants to text, tweet, twitter, etc.instead of forming relationships. I have a younger friend who explained this concept to me. They want to concentrate on themselves and keep outside interruptions to a minimum. They can post something like, "I'm at Wally World buying nail polish." And someone can add Like to that and be done. A lot of them lead fairly uninteresting lives any more. Social media has created a lot of people with no interests, no hobbies, and, sorry to say, limited intelligence. If you read statistics we are sliding further and further down the the list of first world countries. You don't really gain much from playing candy crush all day and posting selfies and cat pictures.

Bun was our Pepper. I assume that chinchillas are a maternal society because she was in charge. She was very large and she was funny. One time we thought she was Wheeler and we put her in the exercise ball and it didn't move. It just sat there and we started wondering what was wrong with Wheeler. We opened it and out popped Bun, madder than a wet hen. She rarely wheeled and when she did it was at a slow pace. Wheeler and some of the others would go so fast in the wheels that they would levitate. Bun was lumbering along. She has real long lush hair. She would sit on a shelf over everyone and watch them play. Sometimes she would have long conversations with one of them and we wondered if these were lectures or what they were about.

I think one of the nice things about having more than one pet is that you have more personalities to deal with. Porkie and Runtster are opposites. Of all the girls Blocker was the toughest and the weirdest.

Your babies are like ours, just different species! Each has their own personality, likes & dislikes. We didn't notice it so much when we had one dog at a time. Yes, we knew they were different but it was easier to note the breed similarities. Once we brought together a full pack, though, we really started to learn a lot!

Pepper was such a strong alpha, she hid the others' lights under the bushel, so to speak. They always deferred to her. The babies gave up play time as they got older because Rascal no longer wanted to sumo wrestle with Molly and she got tired of trying to get him to come play. Only Pepper played then because they would not touch her toys. Bandit has never been playful - he's a snuggler. Now, with Pepper gone, we run ourselves ragged for a brief time each evening throwing the balls for both Molly & Rascal. Molly is blind so she has a special toy she can find by sound & smell. She's so dogged about it that it might as well be the badger she was trained to hunt! Rascal runs rings around the house playing fetch. Bandit either hides in the bathroom during play time or comes out to the sun room with me if it is my evening to brush kitty while DH runs the dogs.

Runtster did not inherit the gene for hereditary malocclusion and he is as healthy as a horse. All chinchillas are unique and we treat each one of them the way they prefer to be treated. We make sure to spoil him because Porkie and Blocker are sick and take up a lot of our time. He gets as much time as they do but our time spent time with him is different then what we do with them. Every evening he gets a smashed pea while he is waiting for his food bowls to be filled. He can eat treats and he loves them. He has his own goodie bag with chinchillas treats like cookies, dried grains, dried fruit,sesame coated peanuts, etc. We hide goodies for him to find. Put them inside something or in his bath or house. I give him toys. One day I gave him a whole bowl of toys while he was asleep and he went crazy with them all night. I give him a mini popcorn cob and over night it will be destroyed. Blocker and Porkie do not care about toys at all and can't have treats except rarely. Runtster does not like to be hugged but he likes us to put our finger on his head. Porkie and Blocker like their necks rubbed. Runtster doesn't. He is afraid of storms so when it storms I have to baby him.

#3 is Runster, right? He/she doesn't have the same dental issues as the other two and is healthy enough that we never hear about him/her? Sometimes I find it hard to keep up with my own fur-babies much less remember the others that aren't mine!

Still waiting to see what our new start page will look like. "They" say we will still have our step 2 goals available, our friend feed and I haven't seen an answer yet about the team "Spark America" flags to earn team points. Guess I should ask about the "what's new in my teams" option, too, since I check on that fairly often.

I have to admit it here and now - I don't like change! emoticon emoticon

Oh no! I hope the stove is okay.

Porkie is hungry again and is eating some out of his bowl and taking his syringe feedings well but it hurts him to eat.

I hate sinus infections. I hope you can get rid of that quickly. Porkie ate a little for us at noon too so that was good.

sounds like Porkie is doing better, I brought in my pellets, did a load of laundry and ran the dish washer, still fighting a sinus infection.

Thanks. It is 66 here and windy. The sun was out but went in. It is not supposed to rain until tomorrow so I hope it doesn't. I am headed outside to do some work. Hubby is putting new brakes on the car.

Porkie tried to eat a little out of his bowl in the night but it obviously didn't go well. He was up this morning, though, grooming himself and he did let me rub his neck. He was hungry and took his syringe feeding well.

Hubby fixed the tire and put the lift gas springs on my back camper shell truck window.

Porkie had a good day yesterday and he ate well and was affectionate and groomed himself and allowed us to rub his neck. Today was not a good day - Porkie was eating out of his bowl when we got up but didn't take his syringe feeding in the morning well or eat all out of his bowl all day. He is having some stomach issues. He ate better tonight. He had his last meds so maybe that will help.

when my bro-in-law helped me with the hot water tank, we had to open the basement window to drain the tank, yesterday morning with all the wind we had, my furnace kept running, I went downstairs and the window had blown open, I shut it and had my sister check it when she came over to feed the cat and the pellet stove it was open again. I'll have to wait until I have time on Sunday to really secure the window.Yikes. MORTICIAADDAMS I hope your hubby gets the tire fixed that can be a pain also.

He had a tooth pulled and I'm sure it causes problems as all of their food is hard. We soak it for him but it only helps so much.

Sorry the little fellow is still in pain but at least it appears that he has a good appetite.

Not sure what is up with my leg. It could be R.A. Not sure.

Porky was up eating out of his bowl this morning and squeaking in pain with every bite but he continued to eat and he ate his syringe feeding well.

Hubby had a flat tire so he took my truck.

Morticia - did I miss something about your leg & knee? Did you take a fall? Or is it the RA acting up? Either way, I do hope it improves soon since you've been dealing with it for awhile now.

The temps here tanked yesterday but today was better. Porkie is still coughing and gagging but ate more on his own last night. It was so windy here yesterday. I slept better last night though my left leg and knee are still bothering me.
