Lol Addie,

Sometimes I think with some people it does take awhile for things to register. I have a friend whom seems to do the same thing. She would slice onions and always keep cutting herself, I was scared one day she would lose a finger. I eventually got her to bang a nail into a small board and said " Pop the onion onto this and slice away"..It seems to have worked because she hasn't cut herself since.

Great idea. That should be added to the 'Tips' thread.

I had a scare early this evening. I woke up and the TV was on along with four lamps. The room was well lighted. I went to sit down at the 'puter and all of a sudden my eye started to tear up really bad and was hurting. I put a patch over it, but the pain continued. So I put the pain drops in along with the other two. and I took two vicodin. I shut off all the lights and TV and laid down for about twenty minutes. When I got up the room was still completely dark. I turned on the lamps one at a time with a few minutes between. Then I turned on the TV. That was the brightest. No pain. But the real test was to come. The screen of the 'puter was the brightest of anything else. Was I going to be able to sit there and read? Voila! No pain. No tears flowing.

What had happened was when I woke up within about five minutes I went to the 'puter and sat down at the brightest light in the room. I didn't give my eye time to adjust to the light in the room never mind the 'puter. If I was still in pain, I would have headed right for the ER. It was like coming out of the movies during a bright hot sunny day. I won't make that mistake again.

I have no idea. I have been here for a year and I still get lost. Hopefully an admin will come on line and let us know.

I suppose you could file it under Veggies/Onions.

Yes, that does sound nasty....you have to be ever so careful with knives

You can always do a search. That is what I do when I can't find something.

Wow Addie. TMI comes to mind when I read your post on the last page. I can't believe your grandson didn't problem solve on his own, I can't believe your daughter called you and informed you about it, and I can't believe you posted it here. Good thing no one knows the guy.
