The Boston show wasn't televised here Addie, or I certainly would have chosen it over NYC. The Boston Pops is unbeatable!
We watched our own FW show from a hill in our little town without any music. I enjoyed it more than the ridiculous show we watched on tv in NYC!

Thanks Kylie! Headache is gone - or at least until I head out to grocery shop. If I could send you about 15 of our degrees of heat I would. Back is also done aching for now. All I have is this toe and from what I saw a cousin post on FB I might be putting up with soreness until Christmas. *sigh*

Welcome to the Crabbin' Cabin Kayelle! I completely agree with you about the NYC music choices. After Boston was done with their show we started to channel flip. Found the NY fireworks and stopped. But not for long. Himself and I also found the music to be completely distracting to the firework display. Watched for a minute on mute, then moved along. Kinda weird to watch big blasts of fireworks on a small T to begin with, and then to not like the music? Move along, nothing to see here....

Just got back from the clinic. I am finally feeling better from my abscess tooth, sinus infection, migraines and sciatica. But my eye has been watering (which I just passed off as allergies) and this morning was swollen shut.

I have a tear duct infection because of all the antibiotics I have been taking for the other stuff . At least the cure is simple - yogurt (the only dairy I can tolerate) and probiotics. In this weather, yogurt and fruit are a staple and I picked up probiotics at our health store!

I can do the same thing! I memorized it when we got new cards with new account numbers. Had to go to all the websites we had a card on file for automatic payments and enter the new info. Car insurance, MAF, KLOV, EZPass, Amazon, PayPal etc. Now I can quickly enter it at a new site too since the numbers are burned into my brain!

Aside from your one credit card number, can you remember the various passwords for all the different sites you use? What if some sites require you to change your PW every 3, 6 r 9 months?

I really don't know many of my passwords...

Last pass generates crazy ones and stores them for me and auto fills the boxes.

I don't have any of my passwords memorized. They're on a pad of paper near my computer. Real security conscious, right?
