Addie, you're probably feeling the effects of Arthur winding up.

Last night when the wind was supposed to be 5 knots or so, suddenly was rattling the windows with powerful gusts. The wind was back to normal today. Hi, Arthur.

Peaceful and Pleasant Atmosphere

These past couple of days it has been so peaceful and pleasant in this forum. Now some of the name calling and back biting seems to be creeping in again.

If a post appears to need a correction on a point, it can be done nicely. Or it can even be done in private.

Let's all get back to the peaceful and pleasant atmosphere that we all enjoy please.

I'm sitting here during another of my sleepless nights. My rib pain and headaches are getting worse instead of better. I see the Naturopath in the morning and my family doctor in the afternoon (they are actually working together on this!).

At least I am keeping myself busy with putting together the last of the invites - people we kind of forgot or who thought they couldn't make it and now can. I am really enjoying making these.

We didn't get out to get our rings but will do it Saturday. Mine will definitely need sizing. TB's is really cool with an infinity symbol with a diamond in the centre. Infinity has special meaning in our relationship as we say our love is always and forever, using criss cross arrows and infinity to illustrate it.

Arthur is way too far from Boston to be causing rain there. It's just now passing Virginia. There was a separate storm in the northeast.

Okay, when I first read this last night, it made me go back and reread Addie's post to see why you were talking about Arthritis...

Ah, clarity...apparently a storm named Arthur is making the rounds. I'll go back to my corner now.

Don't worry, PF, I thought the same way until I remembered the storm brewing on the coast.

However, on some days, my "arthur" feels just as formidable as the weather one.

LOL! I just need to turn my "Nurse instincts" off...I have a tendency to look at people and categorize as how easy it would be to start an IV on them. "Arthur" is a daily part of my life, personally and at work.

I hope it didn't hit you too hard. How are you doing with the storm?
