Glad you found out about those allergies Laurie.

I'm reading documentation before installing TrueCrypt. It puts an encrypted "volume" on a computer. I do this for the security of my clients' data. I have used it before, but haven't installed it in over three years. It's kinda geeky and I seem to remember it doesn't just install with a wizard, like most Windows software.

So, I am plodding through far more information than I want at this point. I know it's got really good encryption. I understand about deniability and don't really care. I don't think my life is in danger if someone finds out that I have an encrypted volume on my computer. Etc., etc.

Very nice!!!

I've been raiding all the guys closets for old jeans. Ok, even my own.Sparingly of course.

Here's another idea for ya. I'm in the middle of making a few for myself. Instead of a full jean on look,I'm also lining the insides with old silk blouses some have beautiful printed designs.That a friend had given to me she was going to toss them out. Oh no!!!! Bad idea.Is she crazy? I snatched them up to make inside pockets I'll probably switch the designs around as I go.Make a few dressy.Button up.keeping it casual to.

What jeans material I don't use will be made into new pot holders.

Awww, thanks Munky! Great idea to use the silk shirts as liners! Had I thought of it earlier, I would have used old shirts with pockets as liners too. Stitched up the button fronts and sewn them in.

These are so easy to make, no pattern needed. I've made potholders from the seams I trimmed from the legs.

I have something similar to that book, but it's a file I keep on my PC, as well as a printout in my purse and DH has a copy. I update it before any medical appointments and take it with me. It also includes a list of my doctors and diagnoses and DH's name and phone number as the emergency contact.

Take care of yourself.
I have all that, my Advanced Directives and a copy of my Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care on a flash drive that is updated at every opportunity. It is a key fob and always with me, Shrek has one, too! The program is on the drive, so it can be read on any computer with a USB port. Oh they have the new 3.0: Medical History Bracelet CARE Medical History Keychain with 3.0 e-Manager Software

Plodding done for now. I was wrong, it installs with a wizard. Yay! It is now installed and I have an encrypted volume for client data on my laptop, already had one on the desktop 'puter.

I'm getting ready for my procedure tomorrow to get this lump out.

I'll be happy when this is over.

With love,

Oh No No NO! I meant no harm! I'm sorry if I made it sound like you were complaining. Apparently, how it sounded in my head didn't quite make it to my fingers. I meant what more can go wrong for you? You've had more than your share of medical issues. I am so mortified and sorry.

I'm glad you feel better. Honest. Just don't go finding something else that is going to be a problem. You know, that "more than your share" thing.

I wonder if this is supported in Canada. I think I will ask my paramedic friend. This is great. I used to have a medicalert bracelet, but this is so much more!
Thanks, Princess!
