What dose? Sometimes it needs to be increased for maximum benefit.

I have just had to go up to the shops as one of our globes in the kitchen has died!

We want 100w in there but because of the light shade we have, you need narrowish globes...the ones I have bought are not, so I can see them going back

The ones that fit are only 60w, not bright enough grrrrrrr, this should have gone under vents

Also bought some bread and was searching for some Rum Balls for Christmas Day but didnt find any, will have another look in some different shops

thanks for your help, guys. you are right, and i shouldn't be agonizing over apparel choices for a teenage boy anymore. it's just that i'm reluctant to give up the personal aspect of gift giving to my grandkids. i guess that on some level i've been aware of the fact that my two oldest grands are truly gleeful only at the sight of gift cards from their fave stores. it's not an easy truth for me to swallow, however. these days, thoughtful handmade or handpicked gifts don't stand a chance against the gift of plastic. but, easy peasy, right?

Wondering if your doc would consider 600 mg three times a day...

I go into the loudest store in the mall with the most obnoxious, to me, music and buy gift cards for the kids. They are always delighted.

Had to go back to the shops as my tin of Quality Street had arrived in store and were ready to collect

Also found some lovely rum balls for Christmas

Thanks, PF. I do take a pain med before therapy and, NO, I won't avoid the therapy because of pain. There's too much at stake. They do ice me after the session. They did the same after the therapy on my hand in the summer. I can't drive yet. Leg doesn't work well enough to take that risk. I have a wonderfully handsome and sexy chauffeur. His name is "husband."

Perfect, just wanted to make sure all options were covered. I've taken care of a couple of new knees over the years.
