Good morning everyone,

I'll get my wife up in a few minutes, and we'll try to hit the road by 5am. We'd be at the cabin before 8 if we do.

FOF, I'm sure that happened. A Man walked on water once, also, but none have done it since. Show me one cat that saved a bird and I COULD find ten MILLION others who killed birds.

...but let's leave it, please.

Doc in the UK we had outside cats, and one use to bring us presents
you can imagine our shock when we walked into the kitchen and paddling around was a full sized sea gull those things are huge

anyway we took it to the St.Tiggywinkles our local wild animal hospital and they said the gull had been shot and emma had saved it as it by bringing it home to us.

so cats can save birds too

Baylee our cats scarper as soon as the kids walk in the house and when they do come near the kids are very very gentle with them

Hey, all.

MadDog, surely your "104 HIGH" was a typo! 104 is a happy HAPPY number for ANY human. Did you mean 204?

And, FOF, we do that, too, but only for long-term averages. My A1C (30-day average blood sugar) has been 7.something for several years now, until my heart problem. I suspect now it'll be back into the 8.somethings. "Normal" A1C is 6.8 or less.

I see now that the "eggspurts" are listing "normal" ranges of daily blood sugars as 70-130 before meals and less than 180 two hours after a meal.

Oh, well...just call me "Sweetie."

For what it's worth, I wouldn't actually declaw a cat, either...I would just somehow get rid of the cat.

Sorry --- cats kill birds --- I like birds.

Later. If we're going to get upset over this, I'll just go somewhere else for a while.

Good morning Doc and others,

Glad to have the explanation of sugar numbers. Now I know a little more. Always a good thing.

GRMoore - I hope you make it through to home OK. I know these events can be tough on people. You are in my prayers.
I like the idea of the spray bottle. My newest cat likes to claw the screens, I might try that on him.

Baylee - My bad memory is trying (and succeeding) to catch the little red squirrel in my sandbox at the age of four or five. I though it was cute, and as it was hanging around, friendly. I found out otherwise REALLY fast! Turns out it had an underground tunnel nearby. It decided to move after that!

Good morning!

FoF, I hope you are very careful to protect your cats and kittens from the children.

I have a bad memory of myself maybe age 4 trying to pull out one of our dog's whiskers. She just sat there very patiently and never tried to hurt me, even though I deserved it! I hope I made it up to her over the next 15 years that we had her.

glad your sugar is under control sorry but our cats are declawed with little ones around and the experience we had with another cat and a scared face its the only way to go for me. never would do it to an outside cat but ours do not go outside so that is that and my dog is castrated too but oh well that is just me and everyone is entitled to do as they wish.

up here sugar counts are totally different we do it on % of glucose in the blood so a reasonable number would be 7 or less and 2 hours after meals between 5-10

BayleeBuggy,

I also agree with your comment regarding cats. First let me say that I'm not a cat person, but my wife was. I would never condone the declawing of any cat, just as I would never allow a vet to castrate my Barney boy. Others will do what they want, that's their business. Gosh how I use to go round and round with a gb'er who thought me an irresponsible dog owner because of my stance on my never allowing anyone to castrate my Barney. As far as the birds, if they'd bury their poop like a cat, I'm good with 'em!

Just wanted to add my 2 cents. Later

Greetings Doc, Baylee, Mindy, PayPump, Mick, WRINC, Joelimo, Geezer, Wack, MadDogUSMC, Loree71, Full of Fun, Chasms, blkvette00, Psycho Sid, & Others:

Happy Friday! 39 degrees in Grantsville, MD this morning.

Thanks Doc!

Baylee - I absolutely agree! We have three inside cats who occasionally have to experience some "behavior modification" - a spray bottle when they are inclined to "sharpen their claws" on things they shouldn't.

We made it safely to Pittsburgh and then on to Maryland yesterday afternoon. It rained most of the day and is foggy in the mountain areas.

We were able to meet up with my wife's cousins and and their family yesterday evening. We had dinner in a wonderful Italian restaurant in Frostburg, MD not far from their mother's (Carol's aunt) homestead.

The funeral will be this morning at 10:00am followed by a traditional meal in Accident, MD.

We return to GA on Saturday evening and have Monday off so it will be a good recuperation opportunity after a busy few days.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Doc....my sugar was 104 back in early April. That's the highest I've ever had it recorded. They say my Vitamin D was too low and that was possibly the cause of it. How about they get my thyroid under control? LOL

Normally, my doctor says my sugars should be no higher than 150, but I've always struggled with that because anything near 70 gives me the shakes/sweats/super-anxious feelings --- PLUS he says that until my heart is settled down, I shouldn't really worry so much about highs -- just make SURE there are no lows. I've only had one low since my "adventure," and it was in the 40's and I thought for an hour or so I just might be "gone." Won't let that happen again! But, yes, the 156 is great for ME.

For you non-diabetic folks, your levels will almost always be around 50 - 120. That's just TOO low for me.

Good afternoon!

It is cool again! Very strange.

Doc, those #s do sound better than you had in the past, so well done! Actually I don't know the blood sugar levels, but if you think they are good, I believe you!

About cats and birds and declawing -- NO cat should be declawed! Lots of vets refuse to do it at all. Don't read this if you are squemish, but it is described as having the tips of your finers removed. It is NOT just the claws themselves, and not a normal way for anyone to live.

Our current resident is the only cat on at least the adjacent 20 acres, and mainly goes for mammals, like mice and squirrels. I do get annoyed when he kills chipmunks, but we are not running out of them.

Good job on that sugar Doc, I think. What IS a good number for that? I have been lucky and have no one in my family that has to watch it closely so I really do not know that much about all the testing and control a diabetic needs to do.

Hope that lawn cutting goes well. Don't overdo it. You can always stop, rest, and get back to it!!

I've finally edged and weeded out front. Boy that makes my back HURT! I have to do that in small sessions so I can let the back recover in between. Now I have to plant the flowers. That's going to take some time too. Darn back.

Up early. Gonna try to do it this way from now on...mostly. Sure works better statistics-wise:

BP: 137/75 Pulse 61
Blood Sugar: 156
Lard Level (LL): 265

Going down? You bet your Fat Flooper!

Incidentally, I'm watching Dog the Bounty Hunter. If you think he's nasty/ugly/etc., then watch him some more. This is one of the most admirable men on TV today.

Keep on keeping on, grmoore. Sorry about your loss, but happy about your advances, too. God bless.

Don't waste your time, WR-INC. I can almost guarantee it won't be compatible with the old XP stuff. Fact is, it's not compatible with the newer Windows versions, either. Won't hurt to try, though, since you have a spare.

Got the sugar in pretty good shape this morning, anyway, MadDog. Also got an appointment to see my PA about making some adjustments. I think she'll put me back on Glucotrol XL, for one thing. Suits me. The stuff helps me.

Oh, well...little more "Dog," and then it's out to the grasscutting --- hopefully --- before the next downpour.

Later.

....oh, good morning, Blo. LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Happy Thursday! 67 degrees this morning.

We fly out later this morning on our way up north. The temperatures are a bit cooler up in the MD area - 34 to 37 degrees at night - wow!

We finished up packing the offices including the disconnection of all technology (my role yesterday in the office to oversee). Movers come this morning to pickup crates and deliver them to the new office located one exit north of our current location. I have staff on site (in both places) to ensure everything goes smoothly.

Off to start the day.

BayleeBug, if that's possible, I'll do it, but I believe she's going not only for more money, but for a promotion --- which probably means management. Too bad. That just means she'll be ordering others around, rather than doing what she does so well, which is nursing. We're still in contact. Fact is, she just called to make sure I was keeping my blood sugars down. I am. For BK I had three boiled eggs, one cup of plain Bulgarian yogurt and two cups of coffee with creamer. Total: under 500 calories.

Don't really want lunch, anyway, so I'm thinking I'll take a nap, then maybe have a can of chili for supper.

Later.

Good afternoon!

It's actually back to being cool here, and I'm still trying to wash - mand - put away all my winter stuff. After I put the last load in to wash, I remembered another couple of winter jackets that need to be done. Drat!

Doc, dick has a good sugestion, to track down your home nurse's new location and try to get back to her via that method. Unless she has gone the usual route of good workers and been promoted away from her strengths into management?

Bonus snowshoes, all. Had a fairly good night. Slept too late, though, and I'm much too sweet, so I've asked for an appointment with The Beautiful Tina at the diabetes clinic. 200's are bad enough, but 300's scare the heck out of me. 'Course I know how to stop it --- stop eating the wrong foods and too much of them --- and I'm going on a crash diet ("eat good foods and not too much") today.

266 this morning. I'm really sorry I ate that bowlful of peach cobbler with ice cream. SHIITE and SUNNI!

Bone, you don't "do" Facebook, so you don't know that I plastered Hu Doo or whatever his name was all over there. People are getting a good laugh out of that one.

Reminds me of some of the book titles we used to come up with when I was a seventh-grader:

"Spots on the Wall," by Hu Flung Du
"Wildcat's Revenge," by Claude Balz

...and a song title, maybe, such as "Get Off the Stove, Grandma...You're Too Old to Be Ridin' the Range."

Oh, well...kinda got off the Chinese subject there, but what they Hu!

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Bone, it's still Blo....and two dozens of others.

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

As to Mindy, I'm really sad that she never comes around anymore....and it's all your fault! You just weren't nice to her. Harumph!

MadDog, I've got one laptop set up with Ubuntu, and I do love that. If/When I ever decide to completely redo my main computer, I do think I'll switch everything to the latest Ubuntu. It's just really straightforward and totally trouble-free.

'Course I know as soon as it becomes really popular, the slimeballs who dedicate themselves to the hurting of others will switch from Windows to Ubuntu...if it ever becomes that popular.

Gotta have something for breakfast...little late.

I'm still wondering, not only about you, but Booper, too. Last we heard he and Loree had declared war on the VA and were looking at some new treatment connected with neuropathy. Loree has left us up in the air. What's happening. If I could get ahold of the name of the treatment I might be able to use it also. How's Boop dude doing? If you'll EM me Loree's e-mail, I'll ask.

Ah, well, I'm wrong again. Lacey says that research has shown that --- just as dickc says --- a light bandage with some bactericidal stuff on it makes for faster healing than my idea of a dry wound.

Best thing about her inspection, though, was when she picked what she thought was a dog hair off the wound. Turns out it was a tiny piece of the fiberglass I have piled up in the hallway to put into the outside of the bathroom wall. GOTTA get that done. I was afraid I'd have trouble with that stuff...it's happened before, but I've never gotten it embedded in an open wound. Damn! No wonder the thing was stinging all night long!

Well, it'll sure stay covered from now on...especially since I've discovered a tape that doesn't cause me all sorts of allergy problems and that comes off easily. The brand I have that was leftover from The LuLu's "home health agency" nursing days is called Hypafix, but there are several other brands of "dressing retention tape."

Good stuff...leg now feels a lot better. Thankee, Lacey --- but I hate it that was your last visit. (She's going to another agency for a better job with better money.)

Dickc, I don't like putting that kind of stuff on it because it keeps it moist and it heals a lot more slowly, so I keep it drizzled with Povidone Iodine solution (I'd use pure iodine, but they don't even sell the stuff OTC anymore because of the stinking methheads.) That keeps it dry AND safe from infection and so far my dings of the shin have all healed that way.

As soon as Lacey gets here and has a look, I'll pour the iodine solution onto the wound, then cover the rest of the leg with some good anti-itch lotion I have. Don't even want to put the lotion onto the wound, though.

Anybody here have a surefire way of sprouting VERY small seeds? I have some "chile petin" seeds that are about the size of a fnat gnat that I want to sprout.

Later --- Lacey should be here any minute now.

GRMoore - So sorry about the loss of your aunt. As a God-mother, I know she was extra special.

Doc - Sorry, all set on laptops here.

Dang on your shin! Can you put a light bandage on it with some bacitracin ointment? You do NOT want that getting infected!

On dogs, I actually prefer cats, but only ones that stay in the house and NEVER go out. I have 4 of those. They cannot get at the birds because they never get out of the house. Its part of being a responsible pet owner. Cats should never be allowed out loose. They do LOVE sitting in the window and watching however! They thought the turkey that wandered through the other day was simply amazing!

Absolutely yes, BayleeBug. And I also have a terrific i5 Toshiba for a lot less than that one would cost.

That Lenovo, however, is truly an impressive machine. Thanks for the help.

Dang shin is really stinging this morning at the spot where I absentmindedly scratched it a couple of days ago. God help me with this --- I do NOT want to have to go through the leg-wrapping routine again. That is just too uncomfortable. Don't want to lose a leg, either, though, so I'll do what I have to do. So far, it actually LOOKS okay and seems to be healing. But diabetics heal slowly if at all, so....

Sorry about your loss, grm. Hope you have a safe trip.

Oh, well, MadDog, keep me in mind for "next time." I keep trying to thin out the collection here, but somehow I keep BUYING stuff on eBay to fix up, and I never SELL as much as I buy. I just love resurrecting them...especially after some "eggspurt" has given up. lol

Ah, well, gotta have some breakfast, hit the shower and get ready for the Beautiful Lacey (Home Health Nurse) to show up and fuss at me for barking that shin again. Nice thing is she's so beautiful and so gentle that even her fussing flips my switches.

Oh, well...at least as long as that happens, I know I'm not dead yet!

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Good morning!

grm, that is too bad about your aunt. But on the positive side, funerals are times to renew relationships with relatives you have left, and that seems to be getting harder and harder to do with families so scattered these days.

Doc, I've passed the message along about the machine. Would you be able to remove it from ebay and avoid paying their fees?

Greetings Doc, Baylee, Mindy, PayPump, Mick, WRINC, Joelimo, Geezer, Wack, MadDogUSMC, Loree71, Full of Fun, Chasms, blkvette00, Psycho Sid, & Others:

Happy Tuesday! 67 degrees and wet this morning. It rained pretty hard last night for a time. We also encountered a torrential downpour during our evening commute. It rained so hard at times it was difficult to see. Thankfully we encountered no hail; I apparently was able to depart the DeKalb area before it arrived.

Arrangements are finalized for my wife's aunt's funeral service. Thank you for your well-wishes. We'll depart on Thursday here and return on Saturday evening. We decided to fly up and rent a car - less wear and tear on our bodies and cars.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning everyone,

My lack of sleep Sunday night caught up with me yesterday, and I went to bed about 6pm.

Doc...wish I had known you were selling that laptop a few days ago. I just bought my dad a similar laptop the other day.

HELP!

Do any of you know anyone who might be interested in this?

I just spent nearly eighty bucks on a brand-new OEM battery for this jewel, and I'm getting NO interest at all on it from the folks on eBay OR iOffer.

The thing is, it's a terrific machine, and I've put so much time and treasure into it I can't just give it away, but if you know anyone that needs a really GOOD laptop, let them know about it. I CAN come up with a better price, too, but not tremendously better. I will guarantee it, however.

Good night, all.

Have only one thing to say about cats:

They kill birds.

I love birds. You can guess that I don't much care for their dedicated killers.

Fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly --- unless they get killed mostly just because of some other animal's 50,000-year-old (or more) instinct to kill.

If you just HAVE to give a home to a killer, put a HUGE bell on the thing, anyway....and get it declawed.

I have four dogs --- three of them are rescues. Not ONE of them has ever killed or even injured another animal. They are, on the other hand, RABID when it comes to dog food and treats.

Guess you heard about the biker boys' big shootout in Waco, huh? Why do we put up with gangs, anyway? If the Present Fink would declare war on ALL GANGS and go after them with everything and everybody available, it would suit me fine. Oh, well...wishful thinking. They're too busy in Washington making it easier and quicker for "Illegal Aliens" (AKA "CRIMINALS") to become legal American citizens....along with thousands of Chinese, of course, not to mention the flood of those fine folk who openly declare they WILL, if given the chance, either convert the rest of us or kill us.

Now if I'm wrong about that, please prove it to me. Otherwise you just keep thinking they've lovely folks who happen to have a few --- one or two here and there --- individuals among them who are not at all representative of People of Towel.

Sorry...I'm in a bad mood.

Later....I love you.
