All red blood cells are round: http://www.britannica.com/science/red-blood-cell

Glad to hear you're feeling better. Last week you were saying your arthritis was so bad you could barely move.

Your daughter wasn't born 63 years ago, right? That would make you 12 at the time of her birth

I'm surfing the net looking for a shelf that I can suspend from the bottom of my upper kitchen cabinets, over the kitchen counter. I want something to hold the items I use everyday so they are always at hand and still be able to keep my limited counter space free of clutter. I need something about 38" long, 8"deep with an 8"drop. Any ideas?

I may have to make an expedition to Lowe's or Home Depot, I never find what I want but I always come home with something that I never knew existed!

I'm trying to wake up so I can leave for the Danish Club Luncheon at 11h30.

You're asking me to do math. I don't have enough fingers and toes. She was born in 1956. That I remember. And she weighed 6 lb.2 oz. I was 17 when she was born.

She's seven years older than me, so that makes her 59.

When I went to donate blood, the woman in the blood mobile said that my cells were too round. I though she was crazy so I went to ask my doctor. He sent me for a rash of blood work tests. The walls of some of my cells are too thick and make my cells stay perfectly round and unable to change shape enough when going through the veins and arteries.

When I told my father this, he said he had the same problem. What I want to know is why the hell did they allow him to donate his blood to me then? I didn't think to ask if I was born with this problem, so that is why they allowed it. I can't help wondering if it is a tribal trait. Did my grandfather have it also? To late to ask the questions. They are all dead. Although I suppose I could go up to Maine to see the tribal members and ask questions there. But why bother.

I know the years my kids were born, but can never remember their ages. So that is why she got her full State pension. She only had three years to go to retirement. So they gave her the package deal.

Medical knowledge has increased tremendously in the last 75 years. They probably didn't know about it when you were born.

So true. My mother had a different blood type. My sister has her type and I have my father's. And it is the blood type that matters.

I had heard that if you drive under so many mile in a year you get a cut on your car insurance. So I called our agent and she said that is right for our company. Here it is under 7500 miles for the year. I told her that would include us. So she said we will get a reduction. I asked her how much and she said, $18. I said, hey, anything helps.
