I remember when two of my sons were in Iraq. It was so nice to get an instant message from them!

Still in the middle of a heat wave. Today is DH's birthday. We planned to go to the Outback for dinner. He has not decided as yet whether he wants to postpone it and stay in the house. His birthday, his choice.

Computers definitely have made the world seem smaller and can bring loved ones closer. I think I value them most when I see our fighting forces staying in touch with loved ones via computer.The look of pure joy on the little ones' faces brings me joy.

I tried to reply yesterday and my computer refused to allow it. I am in such a great place this week. We had a lovely visit in PA and a safe trip both wats. Yesterday a problem with the town was resolved satisfactorily. In PA I attended a bridal shower for my nephew's bride to be. Now we have an autumn wedding to look forward to. God is good. He has kept me sare and answered a myriad of prayers.

I don't mind the rain at all, since I grew up in El Paso, TX, which is at the edge of the Great American Desert. Today we are also having rain in the Pacific NW! emoticon

I didn't know that about Rhode Island, Nelliec, even though I once lived on the West coast f the USA :)

It's wet and cool here today. We went out for awhile and lots of the ground has turned to mud. We're staying home today. Hope it is fine for church tomorrow.

When I look at Australia it certainly looks too large to be called an island! However, New Zealand is more island looking.

But you never know about what something looks like and its name. I have lived in Rhode Island which does have islands, but also part of it is attached to the mainland!

Sounds like you both had busy days. Me too. It was a work day and it went later than usual, so it was great to get home again.

Busy day today. DH and I are both exhausted. Fortunately, he postponed our PA trip until Saturfay.

I worked with a young dpctpr who came from Victoria. I made the mostake way back then of calling Australia an island. He set ,e straight and I never made that mistake again.

That sounds good, Nelliec. Got to be safe, hey.

TheWinner33, you really must visit Australia sometime. Plan so spend some time over here. While it may not look like it on a map, Australia is as large as mainland USA :) Many people think of it as a little island but it is an island continent.

I had a domestic day. Now I'm studying up on what I have to teach tomorrow before I go to sleep.

Have a good day everyone.

I went to Bible Study today, then to get a soft collar and carpal tunnel wrist braces (which I wear at night to prevent pain). In the afternoon, the supervisor of the chore workers I get came for her twice yearly visit and checked my bathroom for safety features.

Hello all. It has been cold in Australia. We're hovering around the freezing mark at night but in the day it warms up to nice weather. There are Antarctic blasts coming up from down south.

Welcome SNUZSUZ and I pray your meds can be sorted so you can reach your goals.

NellieC I am sorry your daughter's cat has gone missing, Maybe she will still come home?

Hi TheWinner33. Glad your trip went well.

Take care everyone.

We are glad you are here.

I know there are medications that really make a person gain weight. A very good friend of mine had severe diabetes and some of her medications made her gain weight. Then the doctor would nag her about losing weight and she would tell them she had been until they prescribed a certain medication!

Hi I am new to this team, but have been on SP about 9 months now. I was doing well from 10/10 to 1/11 and then I got sick. I started at 164 lbs and was down to 154 lbs in January then was on a medication where I gained 15 lbs in 3 weeks! I am now right back where I was when I started at 164 lbs.
I would like to thank SUNRISE14 for inviting me to this team:)

Aug. 9th, I will start the Ideal Protocol diet. This is a high protein diet where you can lose weight in a healthy way. I hope to have more energy and feel good for a change, and lose weight too!

It was a little warmer here today and that was a blessing. In Australia it is winter time, though our winters are pretty mild compared to much of the world. We had prayer meeting tonight and I thought of you all here. Will pray fro team members to achieve what they know the Lord wants them to do. Thank you to anyone who has prayed for me :)

National Health matters are a concern here too. We have huge clinics where many doctors work and rarely get to see the same one twice unless there is a chronic condition that requires someone to be the 'coordinator' of medical care. My hubby has a couple of those conditions so at least he has a sort of 'regular' doctor.

I hope things work out for you all.

Well, I am guessing that he wants to make sure no one is going to sue him at some point for not warning about something. This world has gotten so sue happy that doctors are sorta nervous about things like that.

I saw my main health care provider that I have had for 21 years for the last regular time yesterday. I have been forced by circumstances to get sufficient health care insurance-wise to sign up with an HMO. She is not on their list of PCPs and isn't on their list at all. If an emergency arises, my new PCP (whom I have seen off and on for a while since he has hospital privileges) can refer me to her if his office can't get me a prompt appointment. But it feels like the end of an era.
