I have been so busy getting ready for the camping trip. My phone took a dump and I had to buy a new one. I got the iPhone 6+ ..I miss my Note 3 though. I had to give up my unlimited data though!

I love Windex! It does more clean up tasks than any other cleaner. I use it a lot in place of other nefarious chemicals. IMHO, it's far better to use Windex than those nasty chemicals. It cleans great too.

Today, DH is off work. We have some fun things planned today. I went to Starbucks and helped them open shop! I was their first customer which is a first for me. I did an hour of editing there, enjoyed my Americano. I don't do the sweet espressos, way too much sugar for me. No ham while there, only listened to FM radio on HT.

Did you get any programming done on your T/R's yet? Do you understand the offsets +/- and the repeater codes, i.e. DTSS etc?

I will play with my HT, the Yaesu VX8DR later today. Yesterday, I got the same two guys, they were ragging about their wives being difficult and moody. Lots of blah blah blah. LOL, so they escaped to do ham fun. I thought it was funny, because really, the more I listen to rags I learn that men aren't much different than women when it comes to conversations. There was no technical ham talk either, which was what I was hoping for.

I just did my TG for today. I will do treadmill after I read for a while. QST magazine. It is a fun issue, on building equipment which I love to do. I want to build a Power Meter, but there are too many choices and I haven't decided yet which one. I just love to build anything electronic. I finished up my lighting ring counter last week. I got 2 free strings of 2" globe lights, real nice ones, and I used those hooked up to the ring counter. So attractive and I love lighting.

It was a long day yesterday getting the camper ready! I picked up the cushion over the 12 volt battery compartment and found at least 5,000 ants living under the cushion along with scores of eggs. You have to love the power of Windex to wipe out a whole colony!

4 radios is a lot to program. I will be a challenge for me as I am new . . yet I am a quick study and adaptable as hell!

I will be here . . we are going camping starting Monday and we will be back late Friday night We will be home until Monday of the following week and back out the door camping. Hell . . we will be home long enough to do the laundry . . we won't even unload the van!

I am having problems with my cell and I hope it is resolved by Monday so I can post while camping.

I will study vacuum tubes . . I like to study as well as learn. I learn something new every day . . I have to keep my mind sharp!

New members . . they are fun sometimes. I will look at the new members board. I usually get an email when someone joins any team I am on. Stalkers are fun . . I never write anything I wouldn't want anyone to know!! I had a person trying to kick me off once..she asked me to leave the team as it was all women on it and she said she was worried that a woman might not be able to post because she didn't want a man to read it!

So, we have a new member, who has joined 9 teams, have made zero posts or comments in any of those team streams and we SP know how to find out IF they have posted anywhere at all, and this person has not written a single post. BUT, on our TG team, this person posted two comments in the team stream. No other posts either. NONE. Zip, zero, nada. It is not the "usual" SP member who starts out gung ho. However, I find it interesting. LOLZ, maybe this person is a stalker? IDK. I don't care really. They'd read through my posts here and not know what the heck I was talking about anyhow. QSO QSO QSO all day long............

Just over 18,000 steps today HAPPY! I won't say how I did it, but I did.

HAPPY, you know, I was thinking, after you get your Tech license, you could study vacuum tubes to understanding how each part in a tube works and what it is supposed to do. Once you really learn those, then the rest is easier to learn, even the new technology has a firm basis in the vacuum tube theory and workings. Back in the 70s, when I learned electronics in college, I didn't see the relevance in learning vac tubes. But now I do. It seemed useless at the time though. LIke a waste of my time since all I worked with was microcircuits, using chips. Hybrid circuits, which Hughes and Teledyne are famous for. I worked at Teledyne too, fun place, but I think it went belly up since. Not sure and don't care either.

I have a 75 year old vacuum tube cherry wood Magnavox stereo, and gee whiz, it has a sound so nice, there is no "new" stereo that can give such a beautiful sound that a tube stereo can. I was offered 2000 for it. I said no. I was once asked if it could be used in a movie, I said yes. It was. But, it's mine and I've owned it for decades, and I even have a set of replacement tubes if ever needed. Tubes can be hard to find these days. It's been to Europe and Korea. It follows me everywhere.

Oh great. Now I won't hear from you for days and days! But I know you will be having some puzzling fun in getting them working. You have your work cut out for you now! Doing 3 or 4 T/R is far more time than only doing one. Did you get my CHIRP email? emoticon

I am sleepy today. But I have things to do. I'd like to go back to sleep bc I got up way too early. I don't want to nap, yet, so I will go walking then see how I feel after.

My AC unit, once I got the shielding from direct sun rays up, the AC unit does not trip the breaker and it does not labor during those hours, causing it to draw more current, nor does the condensor overwork either. The compressor is fine, and the air coming out at 3pm is about 50 degrees, 2 and 3pm is the hottest part of day. I stuck a temp probe into the vents for accurate temps. I am happy. Monday, I turned it on, then left for Sedona and when I got home, the AC unit was running faithfully. I figured if it trips the circuit while I'm gone, then so what. I was right, as I laid in bed during the afternoon hours Tuesday and it worked just fine. Now, I will be building a covering using shade cloth etc.

Had a number of great QSOs up to 300 mi on Monday. It was great fun. My legs are sore from the hiking though. It was more than my usual daily walking distances and also uphill. It was hot though on top of the mountain but the view was breathtaking. I figure I was in eye of sight of probably 100 repeaters. I really need to get my HT and mobile programmed for the repeaters in that area, I only have a few repeaters programmed right now for there. I can see myself going there to Sedona more often now just for ham fun and a fun day away from responsibilities. DH is fine with that.

Good for you . . I am the same way on calling people out!

I hope my radios come today. Ebay says they are set to be delivered. I have to watch for them as we are going to have severe weather here today. UPS has dropped stuff here before and when we finally saw it . . it was water-logged . . I mean the water ran out of the box when I picked it up and the box was full if magazines!!

Well, the name, it comes from another team, where a "new" member was a total liar about herself and I called her out on it and requested that she leave the team. I am the leader of that team and our active members are a good group of real women. She called it my drama. Ha ha ha. I needed HIPboots4BS anytime she "appeared and spoke" so the inspiration came from her. I like the name too and I think I am going to keep it forever!

So, DH didn't make it to the Lowes store Sunday. He was too busy finishing up the oil change. It is done now, and all is good. Tomorrow I have an appt, so I will go to Lowes and get what we need for the beta test.

Today, I am going to the river around 9am for the day. I will be doing some DX with HT. Hopefully will get a few QSOs and from where IDK. I'm using HT with Browning NMO and Browning dual band ant for HF and repeaters. SWR 4 HT is 1.3, verrrry good!

SO, laying in bed last night and figuring out the issue, since it only draws excess current during the afternoon when on the sunny side, full sun. SO, I figured it out. The heat of the afternoon causes the AC unit to work harder, and due to the heat of the sun beating down on it, it has that excess heat to dissipate and it cannot. SO, wanting validation, I emailed an AC guy, explained, and he replied. I was correct. It is the issue. So the fix is this...put a cover over it to block the sun. DH, that good guy, is on the way to Lowe's HW store for whatever. Either a panel of foam, or a sheet of plywood. We will lean it over the AC unit. I cannot wait to do the test.

At Hughes AC, we tested circuits under temperature. The electronic term for this, is Thermal Runnaway.

We are going to the local airport at 7AM for the Father's Day pancake breakfast.. And then Lillian and I are going for a plane ride together! I want to get my pilots license!

I admire a woman who 'knows her stuff and can deliver'! I am not intimidated by any woman who is smarter than me! I relish that in a woman. I have met a few 'overpowering' women . . yet I do not back down..and I don't get into a pissing contest with them either! It is sad that he does not respect you and what you know.. that can tough in a relationship. I had that once . . that is why she is an 'ex'! (Plus the fact she got pregnant by another guy and had an abortion to hide it 4 years after we married!) I won't marry again!

OOOH! Fearless and HAPPY! I like that...and I have always adored Eastwood, and have went to the movies, all of them at the theater when they came out. I also loved the 3 movies so well, that I did purchase the album soundtracks, by Enrico Morricone, and they are the originals and are now out on mp3.

Using the old droid is awesome. I had a Droid 4 and it was amazing for mp3 music. I say USE IT!!! It's better and it will also save you some dollars and that means more dollars for ham and egg breakfast....LOL.

I did troubleshoot and repair my air conditioner in my window again. It is an 800 bucks ac unit. It is awesome, but it does like power. The problem was, that the thermocouple was too far into it's little barricade and caused the compressor to flutter off and on rapidly and also draw excessive current at once. SO, after DH told me to throw it away, I laid in bed thinking of the actual circuitry and the techie type electrical details. I came to the conclusion that it was indeed the thermocouple. SO, I jumped up out of bed, removed ac cover, and pulled out the thermocouple an inch to expose the entire thermo controlled resister aka thermocouple aka thermistor which is controlled by temperature in the room as well as the ac temp setting. That solved the first problem of drawing too much current from switching on and off rapidly. NOW, the problem is, and has always been, that the ac unit draws too much current for the electrical circuit itself, and I have been considering in having a new dedicated circuit installed, just for that ac unit, however, the fee is outrageous at $650, when I know how to do it myself at about $75. That said, DH is not agreeable with this, as he is one of those type men who doesn't trust me and electricity, no matter what I tell him and it just ticks me off to no end to be told that I can't do something when I know I/We can do it ourselves. I know, I've said that before. BUT it IS so annoying and I know it will be a fight, or at least an argument until I do get my way to install the new breaker, wire and wall plug. I will need DH help for certain parts of the job, and that IS where the problem comes in. Without his help, I cannot do the whole thing all by myself. I need him to crawl under the house and run the wire to the panel and to the wall plug.

And he laughs. I am now annoyed, and hot. DH did change my oil today, but after putting all the new expensive oil in, he did not tighten the oil filter all the way like I explained for this vehicle, which is different than his truck, and after he started it up, the engine's oil pressure forced all the oil out through the threads on the oil filter and down onto the pavement. Truly a mess to reckon with. $35 bucks worth of oil.

I am speechless today. LOLZ is all I cando. CANDO a little LOLZ.
Why can't DH listen to me? And respect my knowhow?

Thank you for the link..I will look into it! I do have an old Droid phone..I guess I could just load the tunes on that also!

I am not afraid to tell the Dr or the PA if I think something is too much for me. Clint Eastwood said it years ago.. 'A man has got to know his limitations!' emoticon

There is a very cheap mp3 player on amazon. It uses from 1GB up to an 8gb micro card. You put the music file onto it via computer. Easy to do. The thing is, you cannot see what you are listening to, the title etc like you can on a more expensive iPod. It is small, kind of square, and comes in colors and is under 5 or 6 dollars with shpg. It is good to put a particular playlist on. You could do that using several different 2 GB micro cards, and name the card with the playlist name. The 2GB cards are cheap too. Buy 5 or 10 of them in a bundle.

Later, I'll try to find you the link for it. Okay, here it is:

yw
ords=mp3+player


10,000 steps is too much to begin with, but it is a goal to attain over time. To do so from the beginning, would likely injure you, and you know that. Work up to it. Treat your body with the respect and not as a machine. I know you already do. But tell the doctor that next time you see them.

Glad you found book.
About 100 steps a minute is average walking speed, similar to walking quickly to get into a store and back out. Hot in here. DH home, want food......

FOUND IT!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

It was on Lillian's book shelf. I had looked there several times. A coloring book was lain on top of it. Lillian found it when I told her to look for her overdue library book!

I think it got put in the recycle box..I tore the house apart. I am frustrated because I dropped so much money for equipment and I really want the license!

I am looking for an MP3 player for walking. My PA wants me to walk 5,000 steps a day. At first she said 10,000 and I told her my ankle would not handle that..not at this weight! I suffer from chronic osteomyelitis and my back gets sore if I walk/stand too long! I can deal with the pain..it is the stiffness that frustrates me when I cannot move well!

I think you subconsciously HID the study manual so you wouldn't have to study! LOLZ. IDK what the heck you did with it??? Hey, my home gets disorganized too, depending on what I am engrossed within at any date or time. Heck with housework! I do it when I can and otherwise embrace the disorganization, life is for the living of life, life isn't for housework. Live strong and live happy, believe me, a perfect and clean home is not what you'll be thinking of when you are laying on a bed dying!

The 4th radio, you can either use as ham or a fancy FM radio and listen to good music stations! Ahhh, to have too many T/Rs to play with! That would be FUN to do.
I used to eBay a lot. Sold my gorgeous silver 71 Corvette via eBay. I had it 17 years, sold in 88. Only 35k miles on it and like new condition. Was a steal. I wasn't hurting for money, but I did want to get it sold quickly so I could go live in Europe for a few years and I did just that for 3 years. It was a fast sale and a quick pickup from my home. That is in Los Angeles. I left for EU a week later. Went again in 1999 and came back in 2002. I love Europe and traveling.

Now, I want to travel and do even more DXing.

I spent hours today going through the house trying to find that study manual to no avail emoticon I do not know where else to search for it!

I am pissed as there is no order/organization in this house and that drives me up the wall. There is a place for everything . . and everything should be in that place!! Oh well . . Deep breath..and move on!

p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRKR>%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

This is the first radio I bid on..not knowing there were others. How the hell did I know I would win it..Now I have 4!

I bought this as I have a few floppy discs with data/programs on it that I need to transfer to flash so I can load it onto my WIN7 laptop. It will not run in WIN8!

I bought this for my arrows/heads/nocks/fletches so I have exact weight for Archery and thrust resistance!

I will check into the police/fire/rescue freqs here. I did not know that if they are within my radio range that I could do a PTT ..interesting..yet I do know it is against the law. I was a peace officer once in the fire dept. and I hand a handheld(huge back in the day..mid 80s)

I am making a smaller hula hoop until I get 'back in the swing'!

It's funny your man likes you doing the hoop. My SO could care less.. I have dropped almost 80 pounds and she has never made a mention of it..oh well . . I just emoticon

Your T/Rs are this
Frequency Range(FM): 65-108MHz (FM Receive only)
Model: UV-5RA
Frequency Range: 136-174MHZ and 400-520HZ (TX/RX)
Frequency Band(s): VHF, UHF
Channel No.: 128

SO, in looking at the freq ranges above, and that there are 128 channels you can program, find out from your local club, popular rag chew freqs, emergency channel, the Repeater freqs and offsets and tones necessary to access them. Use paper and pen to write it all down in a list using columns, unless you want to set up and then use Excel spreadsheet. I can't remember if CHIRP uses Excel or not in it's programming format. If it does, then you just fill in the correct freqs, offsets and tones and some use a code to access and all that is done when you program your radios.
In your area, IDK what the police and fire depts freqs are, IF they are within the above 2 bands then you can program them in but to LISTEN ONLY BUT NEVER ever PTT, VERY ILLEGAL TO transmit on those bands and the fox hunters will track down those who do and the money fine from FCC is thousands of dollars. Not a crime to listen though. Listening is fun especially if it's right there in your neighborhood. Kinda nice to know there's a burglary in progress a few doors down from your home.

Years ago, I had a police scanner. I've progressed since then.

I'm talking about it, but haven't added those freqs to my HT, not YET. Just get too busy with things. Glad you are making every minute count for your fitness and it is important to make it a priority, but, I'm just not feeling it today.

I'm irritable today. I think I have over-exercised the past few days, and today I could care less if I do anything constructive. SO, I think it is a "make myself beautiful" day. I will be lazily doing the fun but annoying feminine rituals of beauty. Pedicure, hair, pretty clothes. If anything, when DH comes home, his eyes will bug out and he'll tell me WOW what happened and he'll be smiling a lot....LOLZ. But it's a good shock to his brain when I gorgeous myself up. A spirit lifter for myself when nothing else seems to do.

What did you buy on eBay? I'm a little curious! DO tell me, as my curiosity wanders frequently.

SO, frequencies for your radios. As I said earlier, you have to find out.....you know, I'm going to talk on this later. After I've checked out the bands your T/R covers. IDK what your radio bands are, and whether the police or fire frequencies are on those bands. They are fun to listen to sometimes. In an EOTWAWKI scenario, then police would be the one to listen to. I still need to get and then program mine for those freqs.

I'm glad Swampy didn't diss me. I feel better now. LOLZ. Matching wits is always a fun game and challenge for the guys, more than for me since I will ask questions of things I don't know about. It is not a crime to not know something and ask a question, but for the person you ask to have the decency to give a proper answer that isn't designed to make you appear stupid or ignorant.

Me being the optimistic person, having a high regard and respect for all others, until I learn differently, it's about respect and sharing knowledge. Some guys can't be respectful no matter how hard they try, they seem to have to BE quirky always (a$$hole comes to mind). But, I can spot the type after asking only one carefully phrased question. I will always try to turn it around, but am not always successful since I refuse to dumb myself down or play the helpless female to get cooperation, not to mention it's just disrespectful toward myself to do that anyhow.

this is the search page for using CHIRP for programming freq's, start from top and work way down until you GOT the hang of what you want to end up with, in regards to the frequencies you need to program and how to use CHIRP.

HAPPY, did Swampy diss me? Most guys don't believe it when I say I've studied electronics etc for 40+ years. It's okay I guess. I'm used to be taken less than seriously anyhow. It IS offensive, but I know that in most technical fields of work, the guys fear that you might know something they don't. But, I don't go around trying to make anyone appear stupid, but I do try to teach in a fun and enthusiastic way.....

Dang it, it is HOT in my computer room..........gotta go. You did good on the t/r you got. I don't think I could have done any better either. It will be fun. Be sure to watch the YT videos on programming, I'm thinking CHIRP??? Knowing what frequencies to program is the biggest challenge. Maybe might want to discuss it with someone at one of the clubs near you. One thing I will say, it is a good thing to ask questions since usually they really like to help others. Especially if you are a guy emoticon

I told Swampy you were a woman and at the top of your game with radios as well as tech stuff.. I told him you suggested the Baofeng and that is when he showed me his..The same one I linked earlier..and yellow! I ignore and abhor men that diss on women..men like that are pigs!

I made a few hula hoops . . but with DDD..it is hard to gyrate at times

HAPPY,
My hula hoop is 40" and the larger it is, the more you have to swing your hips and core to keep it hooping. But the flipside is that it is slower than a smaller hoop. The smaller the hoop the faster you have to swing which for me is not good. I opted for the larger hoop.
The exercise ends up being about the same as far as calorie burn, but I like the slower swing since I have had back pain issues in the past.
Also, you can fill the pvc pipe with sand for weighted hoop. On Amazon you can find the colorful tapes just for hula hoops, for those who make their own hoops.
One guy said use ELEVEN feet of the 1" drip irrigation tubing, and get a mate connector. Fill with PLAY sand (beach sand has to be cleansed, PLAY sand can be bought but costs a bit and bag is bigger, 100 lbs?? and you only need about 2.6 lbs, you could go to a park and get some sand there and then make a charitable donation to the park LOLZ so you don't feel like a total thief ), then use the tapes to seal it and make colorful. If you don't care about color, then duct tape is fine, but then it has a slippery problem.

The thing is, with the specialty hula hoop tapes, there is two kinds, one is grip tape, the other is the colored tapes. You would use both together for color and grip. I like the grip since I've used a slippery plastic hoop with no grip tape and it's too hard to keep the hoop up. OR you can only buy the grip tape if you don't care

Oh, I think I would be Elmyra....I'm sure Swampy had a couple fun comments about my being a woman. LOLZ. I get it all the time, guys don't think I know what I do.
I am glad you want to actually learn the material versus memorizing. You will be far better off learning and it will serve you well in years to come.

I haven't had a chance yet to look at the link you gave me. Later. I got a busy day ahead.

I met a guy named 'Swampy' . . They told me at the gate to go see him. I told him you were my 'Elmer' and he just started chatting like we were old pals! He had the yellow Baofeng UV5R . . he told me they were the best! He had his on listening to all the folks chatting on walkie mode.

There are 3 radio groups close to me. I will join a couple. I am excited now . . I am not going to bed until I toss this house and find my manual!
Swampy said he just learned the questions online for the test and never opened the book! I don't want to do that!

I will get my membership with the ARRL online as it is past 90 days!

I will make a smaller hoola hoop and give it a go. I think I made my last hoop too big and I still cannot spin the darn thing!

There was a LOT of 'circuitry' there..btu a lot of it was so old! Some people never even dusted it off..yeesh!

Now that my addition is done.. I am taking my TFG out there and work out..so much more room than in here!

Okay, to equal about what you wrote, since I tend to write every FEW days, here we go....
I AM FREAKING JEALOUS that you get to go to a hamfest!!!!!!! Can you picture me stamping my foot and whining "I wanna go too! It's just not fair that HAPPY gets to go and I don't!"

Really though, that IS awesome fun to go to hamfest, and I am happy for you. You will meet a lot of nice people who love to talk ham geeky stuff. You will learn a LOT. They will encourage you to get your license. They will tell you how easy it is to get your Tech license. You will want to buy more ham goodies than you can afford! You will have seen transceivers that you can only dream of affording.

Ask me how I know this to be true?

All is very good with me. I've been using my FitBit Charge HR model which is a totally glorious step counter and more and more. It does a lot of neat things too. I also signed up for the Premium at ~$50 a year. It's very motivating for me.

I've also started using my weighted Hula Hoop. Don't laugh, it's a hard workout and burns 3x more calories than treadmill at 5% incline!!! In 10 minutes hula hoop, burns the same as 30 min at 5% incline treadmill. Now THAT IS motivating! So far, I've lost 6 inches in my waist in 4 weeks (and only 5 or 6 inches left to lose--seriously motivating!). I did get sore core muscles too, the first 10 days or so. But, it is a lot of fun to do. Da man ogles me when I do the Hula Hoop. That is funnier than the fun I have doing it. Really, he does cheer me on, in a typical guy type of dialogue. From "Swing it baby, up to OMG I can't say what he says!" LOLZ, but it is fun and it makes us both laugh a lot. Gotta love anything that gives a good workout and also makes you laugh too. Great stress reliever and I've been sleeping very good.

Doing TG daily, treadmill daily, hula hoop daily, dumbbells every other day upper body, and making it a point to use ALL of my fitness gear regularly. It's been a good 3 months of effort.
HEY! I'M GETTING THAT TIGHT BODY FEELING AGAIN. LOLZ. I love this, when you get to a point where you are really seeing and feeling the results of hard work and effort. That's PAYBACK.

LimeWire was a media share site. you could download music free and store it on your hard drive as long as you share it with others. It went under due to copyright infringement and I still have all those file!

I am not familiar with LimeWare. Clue me in please. If it IS about music, I'm all ears! I adore all music. I play music. I live music. All my speakers and headsets are FOR music. Everything I have speakerwise is bluetooth too. My iPod is Bluetooth even.

Now, if only I could get all of my 450 cassettes put onto CDs so I could put them on my iPod 160 GB Classic. The problem is, you have to listen to them and do adjustments as they play, and then transfer them via a program onto a CD. It's time intensive. Meaning less ham time.

Oh my! Thank you for all that info . . I will be on this today! I did get some vita-mins with some good and trace minerals at Vitamin World . . but it cost 2 fingers and a thumb!

I cut the vita-min in half and eat half with breakfast and dinner so I have that 'balance' . . saw it on Dr Oz . . so there seems to be little bio waste of nutrients!

I do flaxseed meal with my smoothie . . it gives good Omega-3 as well as a good dash of protein. I try to have a cup of greek yogurt daily for the protein..I hate the taste so I smoothie it with some fruit to 'sweeten' it and I get my fruit!

Do you remember Limewire? It was a share-ware a number of years ago . . well . . I have a few hundred songs on a portable hard-drive that I listen to while I Spark! If you are interested .. .I can send you some . . let me know!

You are an emoticon emoticon I am so honored to have met you here!

Twin Labs, uses the best vitamins that have the best bioavailability for the use by the body, hence, the reason they cost more.
Other cheaper brands do not, so it's kind of useless to take them if the body can't use them. You will find this to be true for the Centrum brands, as well as others, and One A Day is crap.

I forgot to say I take Fish Oil, and E in the d-alpha tocopherol form. Other forms is a waste of money in the long run and you have to take double to get what you do in the d-alpha tocopherol form. Not too cost effective to take the cheaper forms.

Also, I do not overload with vitamins daily, I take about 2 to 3 days a week. Except Magnesium Malate I take daily.

What I take and recommend since food ain't what it used to be (that's my beliefs):
Multivitamin Twin Labs is best money can buy,
Ester C 500 mg,
D3 1000 U,
Super B-Complex again Twin Labs,
I also take extra Amino Acids to help with muscle growth,
MSM for tendons & ligament repair,
I also don't eat much meat, so I use Isopure Whey Isolate Protein powder for my protein for adding muscles.
Also Magnesium Malate by Source Naturals (5 month supply via Amazon for about 20 bucks) Over 80% of people are highly magnesium deficient according to studies, the Malate form is the most bioavailable to the body for absorption and usability by body. FYI, main effect of deficiency is soreness of muscles. People with Fibromyalgia are usually very deficient in this mineral.

emoticon

I am partial to Twin Labs and Isopure Whey Isolate brands. For me, with my issues, it's worth the money. Other Whey products have some not so good stuff in them. I'm quite picky about supplements. I only eat meat once a week if the man buys a roast chicken. Then maybe gr beef if in Chili. I've never eaten much meats throughout life. Maybe a NY strip steak once a year. Gotta be craving it.

Nature Made, or Source Naturals are also good brands IF you don't wish to pay the Twin Labs higher prices.

SO, Google Play said I could not get my music I bought from them for my phone, onto my iTunes for iPod. HA HA HA! Never say never that I can't do something or I will do it....and I did it. Techy woman me is very hard to fool! So what, I do have to name them, nothing difficult, just a bit of typing while listening to them. Ha ha ha ha ha Google Play Jerks! Proud of myself.

It's an addition to the garage! It will be a tool shed so all of my tools can go in it. There is a metal shed for all of the yard/garden tools. Then I will be able to open /clean the car garage and put a vehicle in there for the winter.

I am still trying to find the book you sent me.. even though I am exhausted at the end of the day. I will have more time when I get this addition closed up!

I would love to be on the radio in the mountains. I will be taking my radios when I go to Africa and climb Mt Kilimanjaro in 3 years!

You've been busy! Nice photos. Is that the addition onto your house? I bet it feels nice to be nearly done with the shingles. It's hot work to do roofing. Ridge caps, the final touch, then done. Very good!

HT on AM today. Going to Sedona around Thursday with NMO mount and 2 band whip hooked up to HT for the drive. It's Bluetooth, so hands free.... DH has to work a double that day, and I don't want to just mope around. I'd rather be DXing on the hill. It's supposed to be pretty hot, but I always survive. It's cooler than Phoenix though.
