Wohoo, I am celebrating that I am back! I wiped my cookies and my passwords with them last week and was in a rush and then off for the weekend, and just managed to sort it out! Hurrah for DC!

On the charity thing, I discovered PetSmart has "Recycle for Life." PetSmart Charities I send in old ink cartridges ( they take old cell phones, too) and the money goes to animals instead of the office stores. They have the postage-paid envelopes right at the checkout.
Hey thanks for that information I'll def. be saving those things for them.

I`m pleased that I`ve made a few folks happy today, I was at the monthly committee meeting this morning and came up with an idea that will save not only loads of cash but also get the job done :)

it involves me stripping down Solar powered garden lamps and building them into Dummy Cameras, so that at night the light comes on and they Look Active :)

that way we can mount them on poles, maintainance free, no live feed to them or expensive wire runs, and all our gardens and veggies won`t get stollen and Chavs will think twice about breaking in the area and burning our potting sheds etc...

no batteries to change, no wires to run, apparently Active... what more do ya need :)

Too cool , YT!!

I guess I missed the last page of responses before I did. Thank you everyone, I miss being here. Work is really hectic and then coming home and processing food and cooking twice gets time consuming to say the least.
He isn't doing any better. We're to the point that he just has to deal with it. It amazes me that of all the accomplishments that the medical profession has done, nothing can be done for my husband!! It's depressing. We had fun with my son. Sorry, no pics. Really didn't think about it. I was happy to see him. He's healthy and happy, that's all that matters to me.

I am almost singing with happiness! We have been interviewing hapless person after happless person for the easy job oif weekend catsitting so we can wander further afield at weekends, and just a few minutes a go I employed the most wonderfully happy and seemingly sharp girl from NY to come in. The cats loved her and she seems happy to dodge our landlord and seems like she'll be able to slam the door shut and not let the girls run out. So, I am happily going away for the weekend!

YT2095? Are you here? I just want to say THANK YOU!!! I tried your suggestion about raising my core body temp for several hours (which really isn't difficult where I work!) it WORKED! The spots in my throat are nearly all gone and I can swallow without pain for the first time in a week.

OK, yes I know it was likely getting to the end of its run anyway, but honestly, it was not getting appreciably better until this morning. So if this ever happens to one of you, take YT's advice and heat yourself right up for a while.
