This is the new home of me, Dirt Girl. Built at the request of a much loved GB icon. Actually, the old place was falling down and it was just cheaper to build a new one.

Dino, Hopefully it will only be around for another 2 months. :)

MadDog, Aw, that's no fun. lol

goldieolds, Hope you're staying warm. :)

db, The weekend doesn't come quick enough and then the workweek comes again too quickly. ::sigh::

trugas, Potstickers are good either way. Sounds like all that stuff could go in either the oven or microwave. Hope you don't try too much and that everyone will enjoy themselves. I think having a smaller party is a good idea. You can rest a lot in between and after and of course before. :)

The way l feel today, you might be right. I may have bitten off more than l can chew. But I broke it into two groups now and 2 parties. One on sunday for the won tons and tempura shrimp, pot stickers and veggie rolls. And one on Monday for nachos. 5 or 6 people invited to each one. They seemed surprised by it, but what the hay. I felt the new people would talk to different people that way.

I told the one drinker she could bring her wine. 2 pm tho. I am hoping all the foood l serve says heat in micro or heat in oven. Paper plates and foil...YAY. Have to get the pot stickers out and look at instructions. Fearless leader says she likes hers brown so she boils them then deep fries or oven l forget and l won't take that many steps. I am pretty sure it said just oven.

Hi all!

DG, I agree with you x2.

First about the "#$%ing cold"

Second in the advice to tru not to overdo it w/ the b.d. dinner. I had that reaction, too, that it sounds like a lot of effort for someone in the throes, or even recovering from, pneumonia. I had a (milestone year) b.d. party a month after my b.d. It was just as much fun, I'm sure. But a he** of a lot of work.

Just a reminder, as I'm sure you know, that pneumonia, esp in older folks, is nothing to "sneeze" at. It should be taken very seriously and coddled. IMO.

Whatever you do, I wish you very, very well. :)

Oh, Maddog [blush] LOL

Good evening DG and Co.

And it looks like it's back to stay for awhile:-(

Time for Dino's Jukebox and for this wild card week we'll feed off of last week's "Back To The Future" theme and go back thirty years. From 1985 that is.

The year was 1955. Big stories from that year include Disneyland Amusement park opens in Anaheim, California. Rosa Parks jump started the Civil Rights movement, and Ray Kroc started the hamburger franchise known around the world now as McDonald's. A brand new black and white TV sold for $99.95 which you could put in your brand new house that cost just under $11,000. Minimum Wage was $1.00 an hour, and a gallon of gas cost 23 cents.

This song would be the #2 song of 1955. One year later, Billboard magazine would start their standard top 100 list for the top songs of the year. A standard that still holds up today. If you get a chance, be sure to take a gander at the video with this one. See you Sunday, buddies.

Trying to eat earlier get something in stomach then take meds.

Today is sunny and beautiful, but step out side and it is cool. 40 degrees.

My son is taking me to Red Lobster (l changed my mind) for a 4 course meal. I know l will bring home some. Soup and salad will fill me up. Got a $5 off bd coupon. 2 years ago the 4 course dinner was $15, now $18.

Stayed home and read and filed my nails yesterday. Nothing physical. Just rested. I am planning a Sunday sit in here for my bd. Fried won tons will be my gift and l will make tempura shrimp and pot stickers and egg rolls. Keeping it basic. Inviting 10, they never all come. Still l will haveto push everthing on wheels into the bedroom except the power chair and my scooter, which l need to seat them .

Good evening DG and Co.

DG at this point 1" of that white stuff is merely a dusting and life goes on here. I agree, once you're at -20, there's not much difference. It's all #$%ing cold.

As predicted, it was well worth the drive to the "'burg" tonight. I was already over at facebook bragging earlier. The great thing about tonight's game was that the starters got most of the rest. The Coach started pulling them late in the first quarter and Emily went in. And stayed in. Final score Blennerhassett 33 Parkersburg Catholic 9. Emily went 2/2 from the free throw line and swished another shot for a total of 4 points in win. Lady Bobcats are now 5-3 after winning 3 in a row and should make it four next Wednesday when they play next against Van Devender, a team they beat to start the season 44-14. If they do win next Wednesday, the worst they can finish the regular season is 6-6. But we won't talk about that, will we?

Dino's Jukebox tomorrow night. It is wild card week meaning it could be from any decade. We'll set the wayback machine in motion and see where it lands. See you tomorrow night.

Dino, Inquiring minds would like to know if 1" of s*** shuts down your town? Hope not. Btw, -20 and -40 feel about the same. lol

MadDog, Just a nice even tan except for the tan lines from the suit and they're staying. lol

db, A pretty good day even though I didn't know it was hump day. ah-hem. ;)

trugas, I think that family of drugs is know to cause nausea and upset stomachs. Hope you are feeling a bit better at least no nausea. :)

Starting a new antibiotic, my fourth this month. Doxycycline. Hope this one does it. Made me nauseous this morning following instructions to take on empty stomach. Just now feeling better after anti-nausea meds. Advice nurse said l might need to be re-evaluated. It might not be the right drugs for the right pneumonia. But my Dr sent out more for bacterial pneumonia. I just saw him Friday, 3 days ago and seemed to be improving. Then wham.
Been buying foods to make nachos to share with friends, and planned to go to Petaluma for Sprouts avocados , three for $1.. Cooked pork for nachos, but too bland. Will go back to my preferred hamburger. I won't be making nachos for a few more days, so avocados will wait.

Good evening DG and Co.

DG it didn't feel like Spring here. Maybe by the guidelines mentioned in the Johnny Horton song "Springtime In Alaska." I think he said something about "Forty below." Ewwwwww...

I thought I'd spoke too soon about the sn*w last night. We had some more downpours of the white stuff overnight last night and this morning. Officially, the NWS numbers reported 1.5" for Middlebourne and 1" for Parkersburg. Center Point, WV reported 9".

A chilly night in store here. Temp hovering around 20 as I type this. In addition to the Lady Bobcats, I do follow the Lady Patriots at Parkersburg South High School as well. Tonight they were scheduled to play Morgantown in a rematch of the championship game last season. Morgantown won the last bout and their dominance, unfortunately continues. Just found the final score. Morgantown 47 South 34. Lady Patriots are 12-3 on the season.

Cold tonight lows in the teens.

Better today, as l quit the one antibiotic and went back to the other. Only one medicated day left and l still feel the same as when l went for the xray. Lungs still hurt. Hopefully since l improved from yesterday, it will continue to improve daily.
I had better get more rest tho. Shocked by loss of 2 friends by gb report, one mainly due to pneumonia, the other went into pneumonia but had cancer first. I should have had dramatic improvement by now. Didn't happen.
Weather report made me decide to do laundry and l am glad. Have towels to wash , but l have a stack of clean ones so that will wait. I am not going to take on any big jobs as l could barely walk from one room to the other yesterday. Today l am much better as l said, and l want to keep it that way. Smiles.

Driving around today, it looked so weird. All brown and gray and barren. What little snow there is on the ground looked very dirty black. If I was a stranger, I'd ask, "why do people live here?" ;-) It was unseasonably warm, though, up to 40ยบ or higher.

Tru, still hoping for you to feel better quickly. Don'g worry, the dirty laundry will still be there waiting for you when you do. I can attest to that. ;-)

Glad your sister is happier and has found someone to help her.

Good evening DG and Co.

goldie they've always meant a lot to me. They always will.

The snow event is over for us for now. We got less than 2" of new snow. Places south of Moundsville even got rain and/or sleet. Most of the worst of it is headed north toward Midnight Sun's area if it hasn't reached him already. I know he's ready for it.

Lady Bobcats have won two in a row. Got the official word from the girl who got 3 steals and 4 rebounds in her time of playing. She told me a really amusing story about the game where one of the other players got the ball from them and started down the court. Emily caught her. And by surprise. The team now sits at 4-3 with their next game, which I'll be attending, against Parkersburg Catholic on Wednesday.

Off and on flurries here. Temps in the low 20s.

Good evening DG and Co.

DG thanks. This year's Coach appears to be fair in his playing of the different girls. Emily, being a 7th grader, understands she wouldn't start this season and may not see many minutes. And she's okay with that.

goldie thank you.

Thanks first and foremost to all who commented with thoughts and prayers this weekend for Madeline. God bless you all.

One story comes to mind. The day of her funeral it was a chilly day, but typical for late January. The service was held in a small Temple at Sunset Memorial Gardens. The sermon was delivered by a wonderful man in Pastor Dale. A longtime friend of the family. It was a packed house and we allowed Emily to stand up front with her late Sister as Mr. Dale gave the sermon. Not a dry eye in the place. When we left the temple, the snow started to fall briefly and then the sun came out. It was as if she was saying "I'm okay. I made it home."

Fast forward to 2008, her first birthday. We did dinner out and then went up to visit her grave. While we were there, we seen clouds in the sky in the shape of an Angel. They would go on to morph into a butterfly. Quite a sight to see after dark. When we left and started home, it poured the snow down.

Now on this past Friday evening. It snowed again enough to cover our backyard and it was those same fat flakes that fell at her funeral service. I think of her everytime they fall.

Thanks to all once again. You guys are the greatest supporting cast around even if we've never met in person. Your kind words mean a lot. See you tomorrow night.

Decided my pork items and leftovers do not get enough attention and get too old by not using them. So l took all the fruit out of freezer and made that shelf a pork shelf. Then l put all the fruit into the empty freezer basket in bottom of fridge/ And decided the veggies on hand were way too much for sharing, so took the fruit back out and put all the frozen veggies there. Put the fruit back in the freezer. As l was going, l listed everything, l had only listed meats before. I could see l had a whole lot more fruits and veggies than l thought, and some duplicates. Over all with breaks, it took me about 2 hours. I added all the cooked items with the fruit. Leftover small meals. So l have one shelf now of things l can eat without cooking.
Then l packaged my hamburger bought day before into approximately one pound packs and froze them. Left some out and made nachos later.

Returned 2 loaves of bread to costco as l felt it was stale. No date on it. Raisin bread at $3.20 per loaf. When returned homeward l stopped at Grocery Outlet for sour cream, Ben and Jerrys at $1.99 and cottage cheese.

My sister called from MN. and she seems happier. THere is a social worker there who has befriended her and she is now content to let her take over in getting her released to a safe home. A friend her in CA offered her a room for $500 a mo. and in the area she wants, but my sis believes she will soon be booted out of there as the lady is getting married.She refused it.

Twice she has refused places, so l am not sure she really cares about returning here in a hurry. Now she wants perfection and wants to know it will last. At first it was "I want out of here as soon as possible". Change.

After a nap l went down to visit the Fearless leader to see how she was and she has really improved once she started using the Spiriva and sprays. Imagine that...LOL. I believe her flare up of COPD was caused by not only not using meds enough, but we have had 11 poor air quality days when COPD sufferers were warned to stay indoors.

Saw Dr yesterday and nothing left to do but wait til lung heals. Oddly enough, he said it was the right lung which is infected and l have pain in the left lung...??

Took ibuprofen for pain and went to Costco for gas and decided it was near endo of month and the sales especially on cleaning products would be over. So went to shop, but had to wait 1/2 hour for a riding cart , l just knew l couldn't make it walking.
Spent $125 and got extras like Salmon (which l seldom buy) but so many demostrations of food and that particular salmon was so tasty. $22. Quinoa salad mix $9 for 3 large packs of great stuff mixed in to just put on top of lettuce. 2 loaves of raisin bread $6.39, l intend to return...seemed stale to me. I got over 6 pounds of 88% ground beef at $3.79 lb. And l bought dates and so glad l did coz they are the juiciest ever eaten. Just love them 2 lbs for $8.79 and well worth it. Honey dew melon $3.79. Huge. Then 4 types of cleaning products at $2 ea and lysol was $3 ea. Come in 4 packs. So my son and l are ready to disinfect and clean. Esp him as he shares with so many room mates.
Gas was $2.19 a gallon and l got almost 7 gallons for 3 weeks driving.

I was kinda tired when l got the stuff indoors, but Fearless is again breathing terribly so l wnet down and got her to call her dr. Who does she call? Her heart dr who we went to last time DEC with breathing problem and he told her it wasn't her heart. This call the office nurse said "heart dr doesn't treat that , call your primary" and she saod "Well l wondered if it wasmy heart" ..l reminded her that he just examined her Dec 30th and it was not heart, but he did put her on Spiriva twice a day and nebulizer. She got much better and now she is worse. I told her she was told even wrote down the instructions to use her spiriva and she hasn't been but went and got it and put it by her chair. She has a new physician appt on FEB 4th. I don't think she shoudl wait. I offered to take her to Urgent CARE. But she promised to use the sprays more effectively. Boy my typing is bad and this computer isn't spacingproperly either. I have to hit space several times before it moves.

MadDog, I've got sunscreen so I'll be ok. :)

db, One of the hotel employees just dropped off a beach umbrella. :)

trugas, Glad that you were able to reschedule lunch. $1.20 is much cheaper. I think your friend is right. Most doctors I know try to prescribe what will work the best which is not necessarily the cheapest. Hope you're feeling better soon. :)

goldieolds, I would like to think most doctors are not influenced by that when prescibing meds. :)

Hi DG and friends.

Dino, sorry to hear about the loss of your daughter. Blessings.

BTW, I didn't know that Captain and Tennille had anything to do with the Beach Boys or SNL.

Tru, that eggplant dish sounds good! And so did the chicken soup. Maybe more of that will help your healing. Good that you canceled the lunch date, so your body can put more of its energy toward healing.

Sorry to hear you're not better yet. Don't they have any type of ride programs there, so you wouldn't have to drive yourself to the doctor? We have something called Metro Mobility. You have to apply in advance, and then once you're accepted, you call and make an appt. and pay a fare that would be the same as bus fare. Need to have a disability, but it sounds like your COPD could be one. And I think there are some other programs.

I continue to wish you a speedy recovery.

Re: doctors and drug Rx, he may routinely prescribe the ones from the company he has the coziest relationship with. It happens. Drug companies spend tons of money on developing and nurturing those relationships.

Going to dr today. Still have pain in lungs this morning. Don't really want to drive that far but guess over the phone prescribing is not enough. Let him listen to lungs himself.I forgot about Costco drugs maybe being cheaper than the $90, but knew l could get something for $1.20 on drug plan D for seniors. So even if Costco was half the $90 , it would still be way more than necessary for me to pay. One GB said that drs don't pay any attention to price, when prescribing and l agree. He probably wanted a drug that was the best for me, not thinking about the price.

Good evening DG and Co.

Dylan's game didn't go as well tonight, but he played some great defense when he was in. The Knights fell by a score of 53-27. The winning team this evening was called "Short Line" after the rail road in Monopoly. Not sure how they came up with it. I counted about 3 steals for Dylan and a few rebounds as well so he made his time in the game worthwhile.

I did Dino's Jukebox last night for a special reason. As many of you know that follow me here, Saturday is my youngest Daughter Madeline's birthday. The story behind her was that she was born January 24, 2007 to me and my ex Wife. She had to be taken while FMD was only 27 weeks pregnant. Madeline lived only 44 hours and returned to Heaven on Friday January 26, 2007. When you lose someone near and dear to you, you never stop thinking of them. Tonight, I decided on a different tune to wish her a happy 8th birthday. She may not be here physically, but she'll always be in my heart. See you Sunday buddies.

Cancelled the lunch date, by email, said l would call later. Friend never saw my email, but called me to cancel. She didn't feel well. Her computer was acting up and l said "unplug, wait and replug" which is what l have been told and had forgotten til called Geek squad recently. She did and emailed her thanks to me for reminding her about that trick.

We set a new date. Feb 14th as we can remember that date, she said. She is younger than l and still uses computer to map out coming down here. I like to do that when going to new Dr or place.

My lungs hurt again this morning but took acetamenophen to help. Subsided yesterday and l felt well enough to swiffer some of the dust that accumulated.

The first drug l was offered was $90 so l refused as l am on Plan D for seniors and therefor the next one cost only $1.20. Much better price.

I baked some eggplant yesterday, trying to replicate the toasty brown eggplant slices l got at Olive Garden. Pretty good and l ate the entire eggplant withing an hour of cooking. Crunchy and good. Also made more tapioca.

Good evening DG and Co.

DG ~ I don't believe they do glass manufacturing anymore. They do have an annual Marble Festival in the Fall, though.

Lady Bobcats victorious tonight defeating Williamstown 44-40. Emily didn't get any playing time, but she did get the best seat in the house cheering on her team. It's always great to hear how much she's into the games. They are now 3-3 on the season.

I am doing this week's Dino's Jukebox today. We'll do the "Wild Card" edition next Thursday. This week we're going back 30 years to 1985. Ronald Regan was getting ready to start his second term as Commander In Chief after defeating Walter Mondale in a lopsided victory that was decided by around 9 PM in the east. At the movies, Michael J. Fox starred in one of my all time favorite trilogies. In the sequel, Marty and Doc go to 2015 to save Marty's kid from certain trouble. There were Hover boards, self tying shoes, and the Chicago Cubs win the World Series. Personally, I'll hold out for that Pepsi Perfect. Tonight's featured tune comes from that original movie. It's time to go back to the future.

trugas, Can your doctor prescribe a generic? Have you called Costco and asked them how much they charge for the same med? Hope you feel better soon. :)

Champion Author CaliforniaWEnt to pick up the new prescription and refused to pay $90. So l am back at square one. Lungs hurt and fatigue. Wish my appetite would decrease, but l seem to crave food even more. So l think l will go meet my friend at the Chinese restaurant for lunch. She insists on the longer drive, and mine is only about 15 miles. I am not coughing and the temp is down.

I made chinese noodles for lunch yesterday. Chicken broth and Chinese noodles with chopped green onion on top. Didn't have any BBQ pork strips.

When my son comes next time l have a few little things l have for him to do that l haven't felt up to fooling with. Climb up on top of Armoire to plug in the correct cord to CD player, tighten up a skillet handle, put bottom drawer of cabinet in correctly so l can open the doors above it. ETC. Little things l normally do, but just don't feel like dealing with. I tried to do them and gave up.

Thanks everyone. I will get some meds soon l hope and knock this bug.
