I have much more sympathy for folks with arthritis now.

I don't know how it is in Canada, but here I can sign a waiver assuring there are no children in my household that would have access and they will put a regular cap on my meds for me. It's listed in with my prescriptions. And I save the ones that are larger to put OTC items in that have childproof caps.

I'm pretty I can get one that isn't childproof, but I have to ask for it. That's why I said I wished I had looked at the bottle at the pharmacy. I tried to find an old bottle, but I couldn't so I came up with putting the open bottle in a jar. That way I still have a label for the pills.

Next time ask for a cap that is not child proof. And tell them to mark your file as such. Then all future scripts will have an easy to remove cap.

The central air was doing just fine. Keeping the appartment nice and cool. And then the hubby decides that if he messes with the settings he should be able to save us on our electric bill and still keep the house cool. Did he read the manual? No. Did he check to see if there was a way to clear it back to previous/default settings? No. He just "played" with it. I mean, it's a thermostat. How complicated can it be, right? So now it's eighty degrees in the house (and climbing), even though the thermostat is set to 72, and he has no idea what the previous settings were because he "didn't pay attention". Which is why I get the ice pack and he doesn't.

And some of them are REALLY loud. This is a building for the elderly. Most of the folks in this building are asleep by nine. But I doubt it will happen tonight. I don't want to be the one to call the police. I am up for the next few hours. And from the sound of what they are shooting off, it is the kind that will get them arrested. That is the last thing I want. But then I keep thinking of Pelham, NH. I feel like I am damned if I do and damned if I don't.

Is there a way for you to set everything back to null and reset? Should be a setting for min temp and max temp. The thermostat will keep it there. He may have also set it to fan instead of cool.

The latest news report tonight of the Pelham, NH fireworks explosion was that the two babies that were airlifted to the Shriner's Boston Burn Center are not doing very well. They are both critical. My heart is breaking. Two adults are still hospitalized. One is the parent of one of the babies. She was holding it in her lap.

The news report also said that the people in the neighborhood are not talking about the explosion. Most folks get excited about being interviewed for the TV. They can't wait to see themselves on the screen. Me smells a rat. Translation, a major lawsuit coming up. I have the feeling that the man that was doing the fireworks is facing charges and I hope he has good coverage on his home policy. You should have seen the stash that didn't blow up. It looks like he bought out the factory.

He's reading the manual. He thinks he has it figured out. We'll see. In the mean time, I'm still keeping the ice pack.

I am watching the fireworks at the Boston Pops Concert and can hear them through my window as they explode. Who needs to go in town and deal with that crowd.

Pag, as you should. I have rarely heard of a man reading a manual, sure glad yours does! Hoping for a quick cooling!

One reason why I do all the repairs around here....
