Good day everyone!!

Well this how my day has been so far.

I went to the doctor today and I had blood drawn, a cortisone shot in my left shoulder for bursitis, RX for 2 creams - Clotrimazole/Betamethazone cream and Hydrocortizone cream both for extreme eczema on the back of both my hands
and Vicodan pain - in the shoulder (till the shot takes affect), hands and a severe sprained ankle.
I had planned sub gum chicken chow mein and fried rice for dinner tonight but I'm not sure how much cooking I will be doing tonight.
BUT on a positive note at least my street has FINALLY been plowed!!

i hope all of the meds kick in and start working soon, mofet.

today, new year's eve, is going to be an interesting one for me. i have to work until 11am, then get home, maybe sleep and hour or two, then go out for dinner before going to the devils' game. when the game gets out, i have to drop the family off at home, then get back into work by 11pm.

i envy those who can sleep.

to sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;
for in that sleep of death what dreams may come.

Thank you Bucky and I don't envy you!!

Nice poem.

Hi! I'm still here, or I should say here again. Just catching up on the latest posts. I found that Garlic Soup recipe and the tweaks that TaxLady posted and copied and pasted the two posts on the same sheet, enlarged the font and printed it out. That one sounds really good.

What are you doing?

msmofet, that is the point exactly. The families and friends make stews and such from the food that is going to go bad if they don't, and eat together for those days. 4 days is easy-peasy. If you pack your freezer right (I've lived in two states where we pretty much knew long outages could occur), then you just know what is thawing, and make stews, chilis, etc, on your charcoal or gas grill and share the wealth.

For those who don't know, especially those who are new to "tropic" conditions, when hurricane season is about to start, start filling all pop, soda, etc bottles with water at the beginning of the season. Fill every available space in your freezer with this water (fill the bottles about 90% full, leave some room for expansion). The water will freeze. You just work around the bottles during the summer. But if the electricity goes, that ice is what keeps your frozen food for a long time, and it is also a source of drinking water. Trust me, I've done it. Nothing like that cold drink of water when everyone else is looking for it, or drinking lukewarm boiled water, and it keeps that freezer cold for several days.

I've gone 2 weeks or more without power. Not fun, but not the end of the world either, if you realize you live in a hurricane (or other natural disaster) prone place.

OK good info but where did this come from? I feel like I walked into the middle of a conversation. Is this a continuation from the snow storm? I am just a little bit confused. (Which is a normal part of my life!! LOL)
