I am on two blood thinners. As a result I am always cold in the winter. I have to have my apartment at 75ºF. Otherwise I am shivering. I realize that this temperature is high for a lot of folks. Spike included. So he shows up every night, and without my knowledge turns down the thermostat. I am going to kill that child of mine! I wake up and the temperature in my apartment has dropped to 69ºF. I am so cold I can't even get up to turn up the thermostat. Anyone want a 53 y.o. who can build or fix anything? He comes with a very cute Maltese.

Okay. Petty vent is over!

When my brother and his wife traveled they always had to get two motel rooms because of his snoring.

Addie----- my husband would come in from doing physical labor outside in the winter and turn the thermostat way down because 'it was too hot in here'. LOL

Words to be Banished from the Queen's English for Misuse.....

Words to be Banished from the Queen's English for Misuse, Overuse and General Uselessness

'Selfie' leads list of banished words for 2013

Michigan's Lake Superior State University.[...]consider pet peeves from everyday speech, as well as from the news, fields of education, technology, advertising, politics and more. A committee made a final cut in late December.

"Selfie" was first on the list.

Other words on this year's list include:

• Twerk/Twerking

• Hashtag

• Twittersphere

• Any word ending in -ageddon

• Obamacare

I'm a great fan of Edwin Newman, y'know.

I just lost a tooth out of my partial. Why do these things always happen when there is no one open to fix them.

These things happen because the gods are bored and need something to do. The head god is named "Murphy!"

We would do that but we're too cheap! ;-) Himself snores like a jet engine revving. When he had back surgery in 2001 I slept in the guest room until he healed, then went back to the king bed with him. In 2003 he broke his collarbone when he took a spill on his motorcycle. Back to the guest room until he healed again, then back to the king bed. The second time he broke his collarbone in 2005 (the other one to keep it even) I moved to the guest room...and never went back. I figured I had been sleeping best when alone. And honestly speaking, why bother staying in the bed together once one of you is asleep? ;-)

Oh I can relate! When we moved to MA we came with brand new Original Mattress Company king and double mattresses, wrapped fresh from the factory. They make the king size hinged specifically so if can be folded. Unfortunately the movers were up the stairs before I knew it was off the truck. We spent three years rolling towards each other until we broke down and bought a new one from up here.

We thought we had a year to file a damage report and were taking our time going over everything with a fine look. Turns out we had seven months. Found that out around month eight.

I but those silicone ear plugs that swimmers use, regular ear plugs fall out of my ear, heck I can't even wear ear bud headphones. These ear plugs muffle the snoring enough so that I can sleep.
