And I just got a delivery from Amazon. It's a Trent PowerPak Xtreme 12000mAh Rugged Water/Dirt/Shockproof Dual USB Port External Battery Charger/Power Pack for Smartphones, Tablets and more.

Now I won't have to worry about running down the battery on my phone when I'm out and about. It can even charge Stirling's tablet at the same time as it charges my phone.

Pluming?

You got that right, LP! Did you notice the lightening speed with which I logged on to DC?

You remove a bird's plumage so it doesn't attract a mate.

Wow, 15 years. That is a long time. I think that it is bronchial, but it is also affected by my asthma and the allergens of spring.

Don't you hate when they take a medicine off the market that works for you? I have had that with a few of mine. It seems the bad stories make it to the powers that be a lot easier than the successes.

All ribbing of Addie aside, I have a "female funny" from my last hospital stay.

I had this young resident doctor looking after all the paperwork for the procedure to insert the drain in my liver. He asked a bunch of questions and got to the one about "what surgeries have you had". I listed them all from the most recent back and ended with my hysterectomy. He then went to one of the next questions: "Is there any chance you could be pregnant?"

I just kind of looked at him with a smile and he went beet red, apologizing. I said "no problem, I DO believe in miracles!

Hope this wasn't TMI for you men-folk out there!
