Did not know that. I'll have to ask our speech paths if they know about it!

Thanks. I have a devil of a time swalling the Gabapentin capsules. They get caught so often in my throat. My swallowing muscles are very weak.

Pill in mouth, drink water, look down and turn your head to the left or right, whichever side is easier. This is also used with stroke victims when they have swallow problems.

Most homes today have the four-in-one printers. A couple of years ago, I started to scan my important receipts into my computer, including the receipt for the new printer. That way if I lost the original, I have a backup.

Is it true that if you put a Barbie Doll on your scanner, and superimpose a picture of your favorite supermodel, while wearing a bra on your head, that your printer will magically spit out a live, magical supermodel, whose main goal in live is to make you cool? I saw it on TV.

And what's that Aussie thing about shrimp on the barbie? Doesn't she object?

In re the foam topper storage quandary: I tried to fold the sofa back in, but it won't go with the foam on it. Unless I get more motivated to spend money on a space bag, looks like it will be the Princess-and-the-pea solution -- hiding it between my mattress and box springs. I'll have to work up to that one as it will require wrestling with the mattress. Thanks again, folks, for the brainstorming.

Between the mattress and box isn't all that bad an idea.

If you ever get hold of one of the space bags you won't be sorry .. they can really squish things down.
