since my knees hurt most of the time, it is kinda hard to tell. when it is colder weather it does hurt more. i am really affected by the hot dry winds we have been having. headache, sore throat and dry cough. try to run a humidifier. it does help. does anyone use alleive? the ibophuren is not working so well anymore. plus my knees really hurt, when i first awake, usually have to take something then. all in all though for my age, i do very well indeed.

I only wish dh could take tylenol. It messes with his other meds too bad. It's a long term situation for him also. He has been on disability for the past six years and their is no relief in sight. He has no feeling in his left leg and wouldn't even be able to walk without taking the pain meds. That's one of the reasons we want to retire in Costa Rica,to get away from this constantly changing weather. It would do him a world of good.

I suppose that it will eventually come the New Jersey. Probably should pull out the snow blower and weld the broken piece. Bad year for the small gasoline powered things. One mower starts runs a few seconds and stalls. Same with the leaf vacuum. I have another mower and a rake. Shoveling snow by hand is not somethning I would look forward to. Heck, maybe I'll fix all the small motors this weekend. After all I will probably mow once more and there are still leaves to rake.

You are welcome to move to Minnesota, any time. As the matter of fact my neighbors house is for sale, very nice. Plenty cold here. I'll take 70 over snow any time. But I am not complaining.


As far as pain, yes, you bet, as soon as it starts getting cold, old wounds(figuratively speaking wounds) let me know there still there.

Captain Morgan helps my husband out, too. It takes the Christian Brothers to relieve my aches.

My right hand hurts where I broke it about 15 years ago on my step daughters ex-boyfriend.

My step daughter called us one day crying that her boyfriend had beat her up and broke her elbow. We rushed over to see her and found her in a cast from her shoulder to her hand. She had carpet burns across her back where he drug her across the floor.

He made the mistake of coming home while we were there and when my husband confronted him he coward in the corner saying he "Didn't mean to do it! It was an accident!" Well, he said that one too many times and I hit him so hard I broke my hand.

They called it a boxers fracture at the hostpital and congratulated me. I really don't know what came over me...I'm not a violent person.
