Joyce, I don't know either - we even had some former Ninjas (from BLC20) who wanted to come back as Ninjas and were placed on another team! I have no idea how ADMIN does the placement sometimes. Wish you were with us!

Steph - you'll do great! (or else!) emoticon Frankly I'm afraid of that Yellow Line myself! Mostly we ask for 100% participation and doing the very best that you can do!

We actually got snow today! It didn't last long and melted fast but it was good to see! I just didn't like the 26 degree temps that came with it! Yikes, it's been cold here!

Hi Sue! Good to see you! We had a real warm spell over the weekend, in the 60's, but more back to normal now, in the 20's, 30's. We actually have crocus poking through already - CRAZY!

We have inspections here every other year - it used to be EVERY year! So far, our cars have passed but Dan had to bring his truck in for somthing - it's an old truck!

We got snow today! It was light and it didn't last long but it was pretty!

Steph:
so sorry about the cost of 2 catalitic converters on your car !! Here in Oregon it is up to the county IF your car is inspected.. it does cost $$ but so far we have lived in all the counties that do NOT require it to be checked,, only counties with lots of people per sq mile require the tests..

I went to the dentist again today,, he put a filling in,, and NOW a crown is next .. I GO WHAT?? I told him to just pull the thing out if it needed a crown.. He goes, it is a good tooth but way in the back where no one would see if I did or did not have one.. I about fainted when they gave me the bill !! I said I am 63 yrs old, I don't NEED a fancy crown.. oh well , there is MY VENT for the day !! LOL

Liz, that's the way it is here Do you have to pay for your inspection? We used to pay $20 but now they do it free. Only certain counties on Ohio have to do it and unfortunately ours is one of them. What's irritating is that it's based on the air quality in the county, yet it's OK for all the people in the county next to us who drive THROUGH our county to work in Cleveland, don't have to have it! That's government for you. LOL

Grey, dreary and chilly here today, too. Made quite a bit of headway with stuff today. Andy replaced a switch and an outlet in the nursery so they could put fancy covers on them. In modulars the cover is attached to the switch box itself, so you have to totally replace them to use the designer covers.

Afternoon All! It was 60 a little while ago and very dreary but now it's getting colder. Clouds one more day then sunny and in the 30s the rest of the week. More like January.

Here in NJ we get our cars state inspected every 2 years. Having a working catalytic converter is essential to passing our strict pollution laws. Inspections used to be once a year but the lines got so long because of the volume of people they changed it to every 2 years. They used to test just about everything including brakes, steering, the horn and even level working headlights but that has changed because it just took too long. But it eliminated unsafe old rattletraps on the road.

I have upped my exercising and walking and it's amazing how much better I feel. I do 10 - 15 minutes at a time while Tom is napping. So far it's working well.

Have a great evening everyone!

Cars these days sure aren't the easy fix they used to be! Do you gals have to have your vehicles e-checked? We do here, and I don't think they can pass without an operating catalytic converter. They keep talking about doing away with e-check here, but so far they haven't.

where in Florida is she moving Steph? I'm in Central Florida and Kathy is by Tampa.

We're thinking of getting our catalitic converter fixed. It doesn't have to be because it works but a piece broke off and rattles loudly all the time. It's $1000. so we weren't going to do it. We've been driving it for months and it's so loud it's driving us nuts.

Good night Joan and the rest of you gals.

Andy's home and said his Mom is doing some better. Still not talking, but her vitals are good and her color is better. This hospital said the other one NEVER should have released her! They have her on monitors, oxygen, feeding tube here. NONE of that was done at the other place, not even monitors! Andy's brother is looking at putting her back in a home out this way in Newton Falls. He moved her in there because it was close for her sister and others in the family, but they never go see her anyhow. Newton Falls would be half way in between him and Andy and they are about the only two who go see her. That would be closer to her other two sons, so maybe they'd get off their butts and visit, too. I guess this hospital even said she has a-fib which was never mentioned before.

Liz, what makes me sad is that she was put in the "lock down" section because she tried to leave twice. That section is basically a "mental" section and she is not that at all. I honestly don't think they take nearly as good care of those residents as they do those in the other area. Mainly because of their mental state. Who's going to listen to them?

Evening All! It was 50 and dark and dreary here today.

Joyce - prayers for your MIL. It does make you wonder about our health care, doesn't it? So sad. Some elderly people are so helpless about their care, just like babies. That alone should make their caregivers more responsible.

I spent today doing lost of walking and lots of stairs. I need to up my Fitbit numbers so I'm not low man on the totem pole. We have a group on the Panthers. I also organized my workout dvds so I will be ready to use them.

Have a great evening!

Thanks so much for the prayers - they're sure needed.

Paggy, the shower is at the community house, not here, thankfully. It's January 27th. She's due March 5th. Wants some time to get everything washed and put away before she gets too close.

Goodness - it's in the 60's here today - I walked outside and the crocus are up!! Way too early although I looked at my calendar from last year and they bloomed on Feb. 3. Exceptionally mild winter last year, maybe it will be again?

Andy and his brother went to see their Mom. She's in serious condition. She has the uti, ecoli, and now slight pneumonia in her lung. Also dehydrated! You wonder why when she just got out of the other hospital??? They should have taken care of the dehydration and they never found the ecoli? Worried about her - that's a lot for her age!

I was sad to see the Packers lose too Joan. I also wanted Denver to win but they lost too.

We're back home in Oviedo. We're here to stay until May unless we do little trips.
It's nice to be home even though it is quite messy. I have lots to put away.

Good morning all - Just got back from church and the dog was sleeping peacefully on his sofa. So it looks like that crises is over. hehehe

Well, the Packers lost yesterday. I was very sad, but we still had a nice party at our house. I know several of the Packers will now be able to go to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl: Aaron Rodgers & Clay Matthews are two of them. Not sure how many others can go.

GD Nikki stayed pretty much in the spare room watching TV as she is not interested in football. She and I like Latin heart throb, William Levy, on the M&M commercial. He is so sexy. She can dream, I just look as I'm happy with the man I have. LOL

Yesterday on Wishbone's walk he lost his collar. DH tried to find it by driving around in the car, but couldn't. Today he retraced his steps on today's walk and found the collar. That's a relief.

We had guest speakers at church this morning. Two women from Lutheran Social Services have been in the Philippines at an orphanage. These orphans are between the age of 9 and 14 and they are now eligible for foreign adoption. So the women are back in the states to see if anyone is interested. They have been in the U.S. for a week or so already and have placed one of the boys. It gets a bit expensive as they send the American citizens to the Philippines to meet the boys before they make a commitment. If only I were a lot younger I might be interested in that, but at this stage of my life all I can do is support them financially.

Well I'm off to make lunch. See you later.

It's so hard to stay on top of those nursing homes - it's a good thing that your Dad can stay on top of it, Mary Anne! We had my dad in something like a group home - there were 5 or 6 bedrooms for residents - they shared the common rooms and had assistants for meals, meds, showers etc - I guess it was a step between assisted living and a nursing home.

Peggy, I loved the pictures! BEAUTIFUL!

Just quickly checking in to say goodnight since I was gone all day.

Joyce, so sorry to hear about your MIL. I don't care how good a nursing home is, you really have to stay on top of them. At least dad is in the same building with mom and can keep an eye on her and he surely lets them know when he thinks something isn't right. Hope things improve for her. Sending prayers.

This was the last cooking class at the Swedish Museum and it was a wonderful day. So sorry to see it end but these ladies have been doing this for 10 years and really need a break and I'm not offering to take it over. lol

Have a great night everyone!

it's called the fishermans knit but it is crocheted. The pattern is easy for me because I have made so many of them.
It is a multiple of 9
the back is single crochet. Jerry says he doesn't get how it can be so fancy on the front and plain in the back

Peggy, that is absolutely gorgeous!!! How long did it take you to make it? Looks like a fairly difficult pattern! What's it called?

Txted our cousin in TN tonight to see how she's feeling. She said not too bad and she starts chemo on Tuesday. She's scared, and I can sure understand that, poor thing. I just pray they can get rid of it!

Oh Joyce that's so sad.

I finally got my picture of the afghan up. It's taken at our clubhouse and you can see the pictures behind me of the past Presidents. I was just told that I have to get one of me to go up there.

Andy just talked to his brother. His Mom is stable at the new hospital. She was badly dehydrated. They said she has an ecoli infection along with the uti from not being cleaned properly at the nursing home. I guess his niece was wrong when she said she was talking, singing and eating. Jim said he's not heard a word out of her and she's not eating anything. They may have to put a feeding tube in. He thinks he won't put her back in the same nursing home either.

Fixed Stew for lunch in the crockpot. Stew meat, tomatoes, rice, seasonings. It really smelled good. Unfortunately, My DH didn’t like it, and GD said it was too dry. So I ate my portion, dug the beef out of the mixture that was left, tossed the rice, etc and will add the beef to some leftover spaghetti I have in the fridge. Waste not, want not. I also deleted that recipe from my recipe book online.

Our church discontinues the ‘Pass the Peace’ section of the service during the flu epidemics. Every one is so careful it’s just not worth it. At our Thursday morning Bible Study we didn’t hold hands when we prayed either. We will again as soon as the danger is over.

There are two football games today. One at 3pm and the Packers play at 7pm. I will enjoy them both. But after this post I probably won’t get back on until tomorrow.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Stay happy. Stay healthy.

Just dropping by to thank you for getting me started with the BLC challenge! I am a Silver Spy! Looking forward to the motivation of this challenge which seems much different than the 5K Your Way challenge that I tried before. I am concerned about finding the time to post everywhere though with so many new people to meet in both teams. Off to jump on the gazelle! Have a great Saturday!

Good morning all - grey skies here too. Possible rain. Too warm for January. I think we'll pay for this in the summer. This weather is not cold enough to kill the insects. We'll probably have a big crop of them this summer.

I seem to recall reading once that the researchers who come up with the flu shot get their samples from this year’s flu for next years’s shots. By next year, the strain of flu is different and they quickly grab samples for the next flu shot. However, this means that the flu going around this year is not in the flu shot. We are being protected from last year’s flu. However, even though we don’t get the right strain of flu shot, it does help to lessen the symptoms. My Dr. said it is advisable for the very young and the old to get the shot for that reason. Those in between can take their chances if they want to, but he doesn’t recommend it.

Church Humor:

Majors and Minors
A preacher spoke twenty minutes on Isaiah, twenty minutes on Ezekiel, twenty minutes on Jeremiah, and twenty minutes on Daniel. Then he announced, “We have now come to the twelve minor prophets. What place will I give Hosea?”
A man in the back row shouted out, “I’m leaving. Give Hosea my place.”

Yes, you better Peggy!! Anxious to see it!

Grey skies here today, supposed to be in the 60's I think! I sure hope the rest of the slush/ice melts off the driveway - it's not fun trying to navigate it! I see Andrea got out to work OK, so that was a relief!

Back to getting rid of stuff around here today and some crocheting later. Brenda and Jim are going away overnight for his birthday, so I'll have Austin here tonight. All that means is he'll be sleeping here. LOL Probably be at the fire department most of the day and evening. He loves that!

You just vent away Joyce! Maybe your BP was up because you WERE sitting in a room with a shackled prisoner! LOL And you're right - it does seem that things like that always happen on Friday (late) or the weekend! Hope the MIL is ok!
