I've managed to raise very healthy kids, they hardly ever get sick and when they do it doesn't last longer than a day or 2!

I'm a bit better today, had some coffee an hour ago and so far so good. Going to make a slice of toast with marmite now.
Glad to hear you are feeling better. Take care of yourself. We worry.

Odette, glad to hear you're better.

My vent, and I know I've complained about it before, is that technlogy has left me behind. I'm 57, and was a trained electronics technician in the U.S. Air Force. For the first decade of my adult life, I was the "go-to" gal in my office. And now I cannot do anything. It frustrates the hades out of me. I think maybe 6 months ago I started looking for a personal music system. Since I was visiting my family, a sister showed me how to use her ipod. I was lost in the first few minutes. So, when I came home, I bought the least expensive thing I could find. The point was to have music to listen to when I walk. But it has to be music I like and that is at the rhythm I need to keep a good pace. So I decided on an MP3.

Even then, I couldn't manage to download music to it.

Got a friend to help, and got the music onto my computer.

Then I couldn't get it to download to the MP3.

Then I got a friend to do THAT, and it was too much, and I couldn't get it to play.

The friend managed to help me delete some of the music so the thing would work.

This is over a month of work just to get some music I can listen to while I walk.

And that is important right now, when I'm using it to help get rid of the limp leftover from my broken hip.

Oh shoot, Claire, how frustrating. Do you have a smart phone? On my iPhone I have music on Pandora, Slacker, iTunes, and iHeart Radio. All work great. Blackberries and Androids have the same access to music. You can pick and choose what music you want to listen to.

I just plug in my earbuds and walk.

Oh, I now have this system working, not going to mess with another! Earbuds? I'm a tall and large woman (average weight), and can't quite figure out why have have ears that are too small for ear-buds. But that's OK, I have a good set of regular earphones. I have sets of ear-buds out the ying-yang. I guess I'll just trash them all, because who would buy a set of ear buds that have been in someone else's ears? Can't even give them to Goodwill!

I think Verizon has a variety of stick in your ear things, they're the clear ones, and sold in packs of 3 different sizes. I have very small ear canals too, so need the child size.

Now that cool weather is here, I like the headphones (think of them as modern ear-muffs!), but next summer I'll look these up. Thanks!

I have the same problem with earbuds. My ears are childsize. And my right ear is blocked by scar tissue. Head phones for me. My son keeps trying to get me to use earbuds. Forget it. They don't fit. No matter how small they are. And I am tired of arguing with him about it.
