Jo, glad you found the poles. Take it easy. They do seem to make me feel steadier.

Mardell, glad to see you are surviving the new job. I hope you are enjoying the people you work with.

Mary, hang in there...easier said than done...I was a month shy of two years. SO far so good...and I think this one is going to be worth the wait. But it is a pain to be looking. Tonight I deleted all of my favorite folders for local job websites...don't plan to look for a while.

Ginny did you move? It says on the new game that you are in New Jersey???

thanks for the tip on Target for walking poles. found them and bought them in Target. i have 3 in my area but the first target i went to had them. almost missed them as stores have a habit of putting items in unusual places. these came in a set of 2 with an instructional Nordic DVD.

since some of you want rain, i will send some to you. last night woke up with lightening and heavy rain. today a mixture. fortunately managed to get to the gym and back in between rain drops. after taking so many weeks off with the flu, i really feel it. our instructors give us a full workout.

well, time for my tea - baked some corn bread today and added a handful of cranberries to it. will have a piece with my tea. you are all invited, name your tea and it will be waiting.

Mary - again loads of luck and stay home and rest until after the test. some of these tests are timed so you don't want to waste time coughing, sneezing etc. it is important to finish each section. i am talking from experience. one company gave me 5 different tests all timed. happy to say i past them all with flying colors and beat out 5 other applicants who were much younger than me.so i know you can do it. you have a lot going for you.

OK now it is time for our tea break.

Hi Pretty Ladies! Vicki that was a really good blog, enjoyed it!

Judy, I still feel like yuck too, but it's breaking up. we must have gotten sick about the same time. I am taking some decongestants and that is breaking it up. ick, I hate being sick. I didn't go to church today so that I wouldn't get reinfected by the dense people that come when they are sick.

It is going to be up in the 80's by Wednesday!!! Oh yeah!

Ya'll put me on your prayer lists please, I have an employment test with the City on Wednesday. That's another reason I didn't go to church today, I want to be at the top of my game on Wednesday for this test!

Nite nite!!!

Slimakins - i will definitely check out Target. strange since we now have a Super Target near us and i am always there for shopping or just walking and checking everything. i will have to look into it tomorrow also the other Target. it may be that you have to order it on line. will check that out also.

Ginny - know what you mean, i am always trying to clean out clothes so make room, i keep a minimum of furniture etc as i hate housecleaning so this way all i do are the floors and very little dusting. we do have individual storage space so i use that.

WELCOME to all our new members.

Mary - it might be best to skip a few meetings. I skipped gym classes for a few weeks also some meetings. i do sit and stand in the back. I've always done that but i know i caught it from my neighbors. their germs are on everything in the house and their car. i refuse to go in there as germs remain on everything.

Have a happy holiday everyone.

One of our members here, Queen Christy, has a video of her singing a song she wrote. It is really cute:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpj--V_xdXk

At the Queen's Council luncheon yesterday, we decided that any events we hold, that everyone must bring a canned good or two so that we can donate them to the food banks around. Our food banks are running out of food and money because of the bad state of the economy. I thought this was a marvelous idea!

Mary noonie sounds better than boob....doesn't it? HA HA Yes. the tattoo marks the spot for the radiation.

We did wear our red hat colors for the funeral. No Bling, just subdued. It was a special feeling. She was a founding member of our group.

Mary you will do good as Queen. The councils are fun. I'm going to one of Northern CA councils in April, also, They always have the neatest crafts and idea.

Hi everyone! Jo, I sent you a spark mail telling you about AARP online community.

Judy, so so sorry to hear about your Red Hatter friend passing. I hope you all showed up in your regalia. I told my Red Hatter friends just today that I would want a red hatter's send away with no one being sad, but everyone knowing that I was a happy red hatter!

I went to my first Queen's Council luncheon today and it was really fun. They are all a hoot. so many things going on for Red Hatters that our group didn't really know about because our Queen was bored with it all. Well, I'm going to try and get them fired up again! This is about having fun and making good friends and that's what I'm going to do! I think you get out of it what you put into it!

Judy that is great that you got those poles! I have talked to people that swear by them for sure, especially those that have old arthur bugging their bones and other problems. I hope they are a great help to you. I know you are struggling.

Ummmmm.....Judy? what is a noonie? Just kidding! LOL Do they put the dots there so that they know wherre to direct the treatments? I hope this goes by fast for you my good friend. YOu re in my Prayers as are you all!

Well, I had a big day, so I better get to answering some email. I'll be on tomorrow. even though it's going to be really nice, I'm still getting over this stuff. I haven't been able to exercise because of all the coughing and hacking, but I think it is finally breaking up in my chest. ick! the next person that gets around me sick is really going to get an ear full.

Jo, I can sit in the back of the church, but they are hacking all over. and then when you go into the smaller rooms for sunday school, there is probably where I got it, eveyrone sneezing and coughing and one lady could barely talk she was so sick with laryngitis and sinus cold! stupid! I am thinking about skipping Sunday School for a while.

Ginny we have been here 17 years. Moved about 145 times before that in ou 43 years of marriage. They may have to burn it down around me. Space is a premium with my DH and 4 granskids living with us. It is a 4 bedroom, but has storage for about two people! Good luck

I am sad. Today we had a funeral for one of our Red Hat Members. She was only 66. It was a shock out of the blue. Makes you stop and take a look at what you are doing!?!

Whew. Starting to feel a little better. It is so irritating. I already had my turn this season for over a month. Went to the Dr. and he gave me some horse pills and such. I was so mad Sunday I went to a tea up in the foothills and felt horrible all day. I didn't know I was being attached.

Funny you ladies are talking about walking sticks. I bought some a week ago! I thought they might make me more stable for the walking, what with my OA toe, fussed foot and bad knee. Haven't used them yet. I just bought mine at Target.

Had my road map done for my radiation today. I can now say I have two tattos! They are periods on each side of my noonie! They stand for period......yikes that means the end to me....to heck with tattos. That hurt! LOL

Mary - hope you and Judy don't go thru what i did. over 4 weeks and over 2 recuperating. it was really weird.

you know these neighbors i told you about are unbelievable. they are in a constant state of denial. all these symptoms are various flu, diabetes etc. but they have excuses for all.

they never wash anything they eat - i happen to be in there once and they can't understand why i won't join them for anything. they are now immune to antibiotics and received them by injection. of course that won't last. they think they will be fine because of all the meds they take. they are completely use to feeling this way that they think the meds will take care of everything.

i am going to the gym for weights now and i stay in the back - no one back of me and 6 ft away from the next person. no matter where i go i try to stay far away. is it possible for you to sit in the back in church?

hope you all feel better and try to rest. i am taking it slow as it took a lot out of me. harder since i am alone wasn't up to cooking but not feeling hungry I ate small portions.

if our weather would make up it's mind, that would help too. cold, windy, rain, weak sun never know what you will get. stayed in when weather was real bad.

Keep warm and well.

JO will keep checking these poles out. will let you know - with all the rest i have been getting, i gained around my hips - also gain a little so will have to do more of something.

thanks for all the info on walking poles. i am sure they will help me as i do fine with the shopping carts or the walker in the house.

Mary - i am a member of AARP for many many years. I get their newsletters and love the magazine and newspaper - so much info on it.

I never read anything about the poles and also the 'fat2fit' club you belong to. they never mention anything in the e-mail newsletters i receive from them either. Is there a special section I should go to?

I get e-mail newsletters from MayoClinic also. I subscribe to so many e-mail newsletters from them. don't know why i never read about them - even the blogs don't carry info. guess i am missing something.

I swear by WebMD site also. always borrow the mag at the doctor but it is also on PC.

i will check the sites you gave me - down here it is car country - roads mostly within the complexes. you take your life in your hands trying to cross the street.

Hey Classy, Sassy Ladies,

I'm glad everyone is doing so well!!

Mary, thanks so much for the information. I looked at both websites, and got a lot of information. I may start using them. I liked the part from the Mayo Clinic about increasing your cardio workout with them. Maybe I will give it a try. Something has to help!!!

I probably won't be here for a few weeks, but don't give up on me. I will be back. I'm looking forward to seeing London and Paris. I'm sure we will enjoy it and have lots of FUN!!!

When I get back, I hope to make some additional changes to my life style so I can begin losing wt again.

Vitchy, I'm sure you will be back on track in a few days.

Judy,Mary and Jo,I hope you are feeling better soon. It's really sad that people only think of themselves in today's society. Y'all hang in there!!

I will see everyone soon!! Keep those wonderful Red Hattitudes!! I hope to purchase a Redhat in either London or Paris.

Happy Redhatting,

I found the website, but by no means should you think that is the only one. there are a lot of them and you can find these walking poles on ebay too. Walmart may even have them. the website is www.balancewalking.com/

Also, I found a link from a website that I trust (Mayo Clinic) where a questions was asked about these walking poles and what would be the benefit of them. Here is the link for that question and the answer: www.mayoclinic.com/health/walking-po
le
s/AN01798


I think that these poles are a good thing for balance and I am thinking about getting some too~!

From what I saw on this website, you can get them for about 50 - 60 dollars. not too bad. I am thinking I would check on some adjustable ones though so that I know I will have the right height for me.

It's funny you should mention the walking poles Jo. I belong to a group on AARP called fat2fit and there is a guy that is the vice president of one of the companies that sells these things. I have been told by several of the people in that group that have arthritis and other problems, that the poles are great and give a lot of stability, but not only that, help people to walk that weren't able to without them because of hip replacements and knee replacements and such. I'll get you a website and you can read about it.

I don't doubt those people are still stick that made you sick. I have done everything I can to stay away from it, washing my hands and such, but when people just INSIST on coming to outings when they are sick, there is just no avoiding it. The bad things is, I have no insurance! But these people don't even care. I stopped going to second service at church because of all the young people that have kids and I figured they are riddled with germs, but I still caught it from the ladies that are in their 70's and 80's that won't stay home when they are sick.

I'll be right back with a website for you.

checking in -

1st - Happy Birthday Judy - many more happy and healthy ones.

Cassie have a safe wonderful trip. don't forget to bring your tea - it will help keep you warm. anxious to hear if they improved heating conditions.

Mary and Judy - sorry you both caught the bug. hope it isn't weird like mine was. not much you can do about it but rest and wait it out. hope it won't be as long as mine was. I am just getting into activities - trying to go slow.

I always try not to have anyone in back of me at any functions but sometimes you can't avoid it. you won't believe that the neighbors who gave it me still are ill - he was in the hospital - she feeling very tired but they both keep going out in all weather. I won't go near them.

wasted a lot of time tonite, everything seemed to go wrong with the PC tonite.

Does anyone know about the WALKING POLES? i thought they might help with my balance so that i could resume my walking. i really miss it.

Keep well everyone - stay far away from people as some don't show symptoms.

our weather refuses to make up its mind.

JO

Hey Classy, Sassy Ladies,

I'm glad everyone is hanging in there!!

Mary and Judy, I hope you are better soon. The same thing happens at work, and I don't understand it because we earn lots of sick leave, but people just won't stay home. I don't get it!!

VGinny, I'm glad your birthday was so good. I hope you have many more happy birthdays. Eat a piece of chocolate for me!!! It's the best!!

Ladies, I hope you have much success on moving and RVing. That is just not for me. If I didn't have a house, I would feel weird. I love to travel, but I want the stability of a place to call home too.

Our Redhat chapter went to an arts and craft fair at Oak Alley Plantation Saturday!! We had sooo much FUN!! We met a Queen for Stanten Island New York and one from PA. I had no idea people traveled to LA. to see plantations.

The first day of spring was really nice, a little chilly, but then Sunday it was freezing!!! Today we are back in the 70s. I really do think the crazy weather keeps us all sick!!

I hope you all have a GREAT day!! I'm packing for our trip, and will talk with you later.

Tomorrow I'm having a cist removed from my back so keep me in your thoughts and prayers!!

Sorry I haven't been on for a few days, I've finally caught the dreaded cold/sinus infection. the elderly ladies at church just insist on coming when they are sick and if you ask them why they do that, they just say, Well, I felt like I needed to be here! Grrrrr! I hate it when people infect other people.

that is what happened to Jo and that's why she was sick for so long. They don't seem to care that I have no insurance.

Ok, rant over. I feel awful, but things could be worse! LOL

Hope everyone has a great day tomorrow.

Mardell, I'm so glad you are working!

keep well and warm - Ginny - i thought of moving but just the thought of packing makes me tired. at my age i hesitate - not knowing the area and if people would be friendly. i know up north when i moved to small towns, people did not accept outsiders. i had my husband during those times so it was OK but now being alone is daunting.

weather is a bummer - JO

JO----ISP means Internet Service Provider----Your people who use the Library or other areas ARE connected to an Internet Service Provider if they went on the Internet------you cannot get on the Internet without one.----- Yes you CAN use the laptop modem as long as you like.

thanks for the info on laptops. i know what you are all saying and i do have an ISP.

however, many residents here go to the library or here in our complex and work on their laptops. all are plugged into the AC power. i did ask them questions and they went on the INTERNET they were not connected to an ISP.

the ISP has a modem but the laptop also has it's own modem. the settings i am referring to is that you can use the laptop modem but i was wondering if you could use it on a permanent basis.

i just remembered where i read this info. i purchased a book 'Window Vista - The Missing Manual'. however,. people who travel etc. use it but but for someone like us, it would not be practical as we use our PC at home. also if you connect it from home to office etc. you control all this from the Control Panel.

it is good for sick people etc. but i guess i will stick to the ISP.

this manual is very informative and i find it very useful for Vista problms.

thanks again. JO

Hi everyone!!!-- I am having the old problem with Spark emails----I'll be glad when they get it straightened up!! Hope everyone had a neat St.PATRICK'S day.

JO---I have a laptop---You use a laptop in the same manner as a PC----They run on both battery and on regular ACpower ------ If you run them on battery ONLY the battery runs down----the computer will notify you that the battery is low and then you are supposed to plug it into the AC socket----

If you keep it plugged in---then you don't have to worry about the battery---it will stay charged.

We all have an Internet provider-----it doesn't matter whether or not you have a PC or laptop.--It's the same provider.They are not two separate things.

The battery will ONLY run down if you are not plugged into the AC power.

I do not understand your statement that you have to change settings??? . Why??

If you need more----I'll try to help further.
