Good morning Claudie!

Home chicken soup has no MSG or chemicals as well.

Had a 10 AM PCP appointment at the Whitefield branch office of Weeks Medical Center. Doc wanted to give me the 4 pages of blood test results from a Sept 20 visit.

All results are perfect, with the exception of high triglycerides My level is 249 mg/dl. Normal os is 0-200. Also my glucose is 150 mg/dl. Normal is 74to 106. Borderline diabetes yet not absolute.

Do have elevated liver AST enzymes w/a 44 u/l where 15-37 is normal. It is fatty liver. Expect this number to decrease as soon as hiking is returned and weight is dropped. Btw, one needs to burn 3,500 calories to lose 1 pound.

Still expect these numbers to shrink, staying away from sugar and carbs. Also after my hip replacement on Nov 10 and after the recovery period. Miles and elevation gain will be the drug of choice that gets me back in shape.

It has been 18 long months waiting for hip replacement surgery. Almost can not believe it will happen in just ten days. Hope a two day recovery in the hospital is the most that is needed. Knock on wood. Want to catch plenty of views again asap.

Decided to return to Big Papa's Mkt (Click on "See more") and score more butternut squash for 48¢ a lb, get two 5 lb bags of carrots that are $2 ea, brocolli crowns $1 a lb, and Driscoll blackberry pints for $1.67.

Returned home to some excellent chicken breasts w/gravy made from crock pot,. green beans, Brussels sprouts and carrots. Had a fine spinach/leaf lettuce salad with prosciutto, turkey, cukes, pepper jack cheese, with fat free cottage cheese, chopped garlic and evoo for my dinner.

Civil twilight is 6:53 AM EDT. Night is 6:05 PM.

Sunrise: 7:23 AM. Set: 5:35 PM.

Length of day: 10h 11m. Length of visible light: 11h 12m. Tomorrow will be 2m 42s shorter.

The temp is 37° (2°C), the high will be 44° (9°C), in partially cloudy skies.

Have a tremendous day!

TCU is just a hop-skip-and-a-jump down the road from me, but the game is being played in Morgantown WV (home of burning couches)

BOO!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Hi Claudie,

I apologize for not posting it here. I went into more detail at the Cafe. Anyway, what was a little frustrating day ended up being a good evening.

Work was still a little on the slow side. Frustrated with another 15 hour work week for next week. I really hope I can find something to help soon! I know many places are starting to hire holiday help. So I might have to check them out.

Anyway, Mom had quite a day (this is what I went into detail about.)

Well Halloween was more of a typical day with me.

So here we are 10 months down in 2014! Here comes November without any hesitation!

Good evening, attitash, Mrs. Wrench, Scanman, and kathybye!

attitash, so did you end up with many trick-or-treaters since it was rainy?

Mrs. Wrench, gosh, you ARE having a lot of medical issues, aren't you? Hope you get some good info from the MRI so you know why your right foot is hurting so much.

Scanman, hmmmm, technical difficulties with the GB, huh? I guess I have been lucky then, since I haven't had ANY problems with it today!

kathybye, all that candy and the cookies will be gone? Holy moley! You DO get scads of trick-or-treaters! Whoooeee! BTW, I swathe picture of you and your son on FB. Looking good! :)

Time for me to sign out for the night.

Good night, everybuddy!

Happy Halloween, Claudie and friends:

I live in the "burbs", so we get LOTS of kiddos. Since technically it is now dusk, I will turn on the lights, and have the candy later. SAFEWAY had bags of candy (Snickers, Butterfinger, Kit Kat, etc) On sale $2 if you purchased 5 bags. I had already bought some other peppermints, and small bags of cookies. I bought another 10 bags, and ALL of it will be gone in 2 hours. At that point (8 pm here), I will turn out the lights.

My Friday was pleasant, but will share other news of a friend later.
BTW: I posted my pic of son and me yesterday eve of his birthday at a restaurant. :)

Good evening Claudie,Hope all is well with you. It was 37 degrees here this morning & 54 degrees right now. We don't get any trick or treaters either as we live on a dead end street, no lights or sidewalks & only 4 houses. We been here since 1996 & the only time we had any was the first couple years when the neighbors had two little ones than they all moved away, now there are no kids on our street.

Had MRI of my R foot today, I've been having some problems with it, feels like I'm walking on a large stone & lots of pain, doctor had some inserts made for inside my shoe but it doesn't always help. I like my slipper inside the house but now I have to wear my shoes because of the inserts. I'll find out next week what the next steps are. Boy! My old ages is nothing but doctor's visits & one problem after the other. I'm putting the back surgery off until we get back from Florida. We go from beginning of Dec to beginning of April.

Halloween cookies

More Halloween cookies

Some Halloween candy

Candy Corn!!

Something to drink...

Hello, sandipaws, grmoore, Lighting10K, Farful, and dickc49!

sandipaws, thanks for stopping in!

grmoore, I saw where Louisville was really whupping FSU in the 1st half (saw it online last night); that sure is a lot of points that FSU scored in the 2nd half to win. Yikes! Good luck to the Lady Panthers tonight!

Lighting, it sure is a much cooler day so far today...only about 55°, but with the wind not blowing and that blue-blue sky, why, it's nice outside! :)

Farful, wow! You always get lots of trick-or-treaters! The word must get out that you have GOOD candy! :)

dick, hope you can get the last of the leaves taken care of today. Our leaves are just now beginning to drop in earnest. It's supposed to be windy here tomorrow, too (but not wet), so I expect there to be lots more on the ground tomorrow!

Good morning Claudie,

We will have 40-50 kids come by. We live on a small lot, so we are only a few feet off the street, and you have to go past the house to get in or out of the street. We do not get as many as we used to however. Ended up reading yesterday as I just did not feel like hitting the yard when push came to shove. Need to do something today as its supposed to get wet tomorrow and windy too. Need to coral what I can of the last leaves and shred them with the mower.

Claudie, We are just the opposite here. Trick or treat was from 5-8:00pm Visitors are able to get to our place easily. They arrived at 5:00pm yesterday and after a couple hours we had to shut our door light off because we gave out all of our 300 pieces of candy.

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Friday! 44 degrees this morning. 2.6 mile complete.

I'm working from home this morning and will go into the office this afternoon to finish up a few items before calling it a day.

I will call the Georgia State volleyball game this evening and my wife will accompany me so I'll work for a few hours this afternoon and swing by her office so we can talk one vehicle to the Sports Arena.

re: dermatologist - yes; most of the time and much better than cutting!

Interesting game between Florida State & Louisville last night. The Noles sure increase my blood pressure with being "asleep" until the 2d half!

Off to continue the day.

Have a great day all!

Happy Halloween, everybuddy!

Good morning, Dino, Robustis, WKGaser, MidnightSun, keywest, senile, mnjrfan, org, JM, hmcsretired07, TUrtLE, and scout!

Dino, aaahhh, the day has come that Emily decided she was too old for trick-or-treating! Yes, she's growing up! Thanks for the tunes from Dino's jukebox; I am familiar with 3 of them (not the 2nd one).

Robustus, good for you, not giving in to your dad. Shame on him for trying to bribe you with food. :( As for your mom...I think you've finally got it! Just seeing you makes her happy.

MidnightSun, cool that the chicken soup is helping some pounds to come off. :)

mnjrfan, I know you're going to be happy when all that outside stuff gets done. Maintenance on the lawn equipment? Yeah, gotta do that so it lasts.

org, a cut up? Yeah, he sure was that (Henry VIII)!

JM, we're supposed to get a little warmer than that 50° you speak of, but not much. Is there snow predicted for your area? None this far south, but in the northern-most counties of GA, which IS close to you.

TUrtLE, oh, yum! Those cookies look great! I believe I'll have a pumpkin one. Thanks!

scout, thanks for the Friday music!

WKGaser, keywest, senile, and hmcsretired, thanks for stopping in!

Even though it is Halloween, no getting ready for trick-or-treaters here. Our house sits about 800 feet off the road and shielded somewhat by woods. In the 30+ years we've been in this house, we have never had even one Halloween visitor. Oh, well; that's the way it is!

Good morning Claudie!

Not much going on around here yesterday. Myself and my closet neighbor's got our last 10ft of sidewalk finally replaced yesterday. Now they're covered with plastic for I would assume a week of curing. We've had major upgrades (gas main, sewer system, tree removal, sidewalk/driveway removal, etc) in the 6-7 blocks surrounding me. It's been ongoing since early June. The sod was laid Monday so now I believe it's down to the final layer of asphalt remaining. If they'd only run their street sweeper to knock down the dust!

Not much on my plate for today. I'll probably do some maintenance on the lawn equipment. I'd hate for any break downs because I got lazy... And of course, my girls will get their walk before the sun sets and the 'trick or treater' action begins!! HA!

Good morning Claudie!

Think spam is better than bills. At least it is free.

Left nice and early for the market. The drive beside the CT River was serene w.oone vehicle in site in either direction. Too bad there was heavy overcast. The reflections in the still river was picturesque. The trees reflected perfectly in the still waters. The reflections a mirror.

Bought lightly at the market. Had lots of veggies remaining from the week before. Both lemons (huge ones) and limes are 5/$1, 2 butternut squash, 8 lbs at 48¢ a lb were $3.84, Driscoll strawberries $2 for 1 lb, and red bell peppers $1.75 a lb. Big Papa's Mkt (Click on "See more") has excellent low prices and produce 1 day just harvested and driven up from Boston in the wee hours.

Was going to visit my pal at Rite Aid, he car was not there so he wasn't either, Went to WM for a few items and then to Shaw's. Grabbed the wrong 8 oz bags of spinach that were on sale for $1.

Was amazed the experienced Front End Mgr, that took over the cashier's spot, had a lot of trouble crediting my account for the spinach. It was a 12 minute experience. Told her my hip cartilage is worn and she was nice enough to exchange the spinach in produce for me.

Returned home to clean up the ribs out of the crock pot, pour the homemade BBQ sauce into a cottage cheese container and freeze it. Coating the cleaned crock w/evoo added 5 boneless skinless chicken breasts ($1.77 a lb!)

Much of the in stock green beans were added, all the Brussels sprouts, 6 massive carrots, an onion, 6 cloves of garlic and two yams. Barely room for all of this. Glad it is a 6 quart crock pot. 4 hours on high and she is ready.

Then slices of a chicken breast were cubed, onion, carrots, celery sliced and simmered for an hour. Then wheat spaghetti in 1½" lengths were added and cooked for 12 minutes.

A ½ cup of milled flax seed, which thicken up soup and gravies wonderfully was added. Made 2 quarts of chicken soup for a snack of for brekky. Noticed this homemade soup is allowing me to drop some pounds nicely.

Civil twilight is 6:49 AM EDT. Night is 6:09 PM.

Sunrise: 7:19 AM. Set: 5:39 PM.

Length of day: 10h 17m. Length of visible light: 11h 17m. Tomorrow will be 2m 45s shorter.

The temp is 34° (1°C), the high will be 47° (8°C), w/further overcast.

Have a delightful day!

Good evening/night Claudie,

Shame on me again for being lazy again today.

My dad came over honking his horn bugging me to go with him. He wanted to take me to the store to run in a get him some stuff. I refused so he left. Then, about a half hour later, he showed up again. This time he had a box of donuts and a burger for me. I snatched the burger and he wanted me to go with him out to Mom's to give the donuts to her. But, the catch was that I still had to go to the store for him. So, I still had the burger and ran in and ate it while he sat out in the driveway honking. Eventually after 10 minutes, he gave up and took off. Then, once he got home, he called me to come over to his house and get the donuts and take them to Mom. But, once again, he wanted his stuff wanted bought back to him. So, I refused to do anything. So, the donuts are probably still sitting in his car as I type this. (In case you are wondering how he knew I was off. He didn't know. He just pulled in my driveway and obviously saw my car.)

Anyway, to get back on what you were saying about making Mom happy. Lately all it takes for her to hear or see me to make her happy. She still gets upset when I tell her I am coming and I don't show up. I think anything that will keep her from being cooped up in that place will satisfy her. Unfortunately, I can't always be there to do that. She understands, but still hasn't completely accepted that she's there for the rest of her life. She has the desire to get up and walk again and hopefully get out of there. But, I have some doubts that will happen. It would be nice, but I think it is better to leave her there than risking it to live at home.

Well, it is almost 12, so I better post this.

Back to work tomorrow. (I hope it isn't too busy since the weather said the "S" word. However, nothing major here except a few wet flakes mixed in the chilly rain. But, the mountains are supposed to get the worst. They even have Winter Storm Watches and Advisories out since this afternoon!)

Happy early Halloween!

Good evening/morning Claudie

Had a great evening with the Mrs. and Dylan this evening as Trick or Treat took place in Middlebourne tonight. I'm enjoying a Twizzlers right now. Emily, at almost 13, has decided that she's done with dressing up:-( Yeah, I know, this day was coming.

Was unable to get the jukebox tunes out last night. So, let's get caught up. Don't worry, I have extra quarters if anyone needs them.

What haven't I already said about this guy. Greatest selling album of all time, seven top 40 singles from this album, and the late, legendary Vincent Price doing a "rap" on this tune. As close to rap as I'll do on the jukebox. The actual video runs about 14 minutes long so I decided we'd go with a home made version with emphasis on the song.

Michael Jackson - "Thriller"

The second Halloween-themed tune was a huge hit for this guy in 1981. It was sampled in 2009 by Kid Rock and that particular version sits atop my list of songs I absolutely hate. The original Warren Zevon song is one of my all time favorites. How can you go wrong with lines like "I saw a werewolf drinking a Pina Collada at Trader Dick's?"

Warren Zevon - "Werewolves Of London"

Halloween wouldn't be Halloween without this classic from 1962. And this one does have a cute video with it.
Bobby "Boris" Pickett - "Monster Mash"

Finally, the regular weekly Jukebox entry.

For this week's regular jukebox entry, I came across some fascinating trivia connected with it. The song is "Ghostbusters" from Ray Parker Jr. In some countdowns it peaked at #2 being kept out of the top spot by "When Doves Cry" from Prince for the movie Purple Rain in 1984. When the sequel to Ghostbusters came out in 1989, Bobby Brown was called upon to make the single from it. It also peaked at #2 being kept out of the top spot by.... you guessed it, Prince. He was a #1 with "Batdance" from the movie "Batman." No other artist has performed this unique feat and was a definite one in a billion shot for the Pop charts. Have a safe and happy Halloween buddies. See you back here after we flip the calendars and set the clocks back.

Good morning Claudie,

Doing OK today. Not much on the schedule except the usual Thursday shopping. Might see about moving some leftover leaves and mulching them. The whole lawn does not need mowing. Its been warm enough its still growing some. Have extras on the shopping list as my newest grand son gets christened this weekend. Daughter wants a few on her Mom's specialties for the party after.

ANOTHER good morning out! Man! I'm on a roll! :)

In and out of the chiro's office (a good adjustment, esp. considering all the super stress from last week); got to Mom's before she went down to the beauty salon for her weekly visit; and then on to a Kroger gas station, where the listed price was $2.77/gallon, but I was able to use up the rest of my fuel points for this month (it was 'only' 10¢, but that's better than nothing, right?) and only paid $2.67/gallon! :)

Home for the rest of the day. :)

Hello, grmoore, hmcsretired07, and Farful!

grmoore, not trying to be nosy, but when you go to those 6 month appointments with the dermatologist, does he always have to freeze off on those places? Have a good time at dinner tonight with your daughter!

hmcsretired, thanks for stopping in!

Farful, yikes! Trick-or-treating there tonight? How come? Oh, dear! 3 visits to the chiro for K. last week? She must have really done something bad to herself! :( Have a good time at lunch today!

Good morning Claudie and All
 
Claudie, Trick or treat is taking place this evening in our neighborhood. Hope you are able to complete all your agenda for today. Mrs. Farful visited the chiro three times last week.
 
Have reservations for lunch today at Lavender Crest Winery. Should be interesting hearing about financial conditions.
 
Have a thankful Thursday!

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Thursday! 44 degrees this morning. 2.6 mile walk complete.

Dental and dermatology appointment went well. No issues at dentist and the normal freezing events for multiple places on my face, hands, arms and back. I return in 6 months for both.

We'll have dinner with our daughter in Atlanta tonight after work.

Off to another day of meetings and solving challenges.

Have a great day all!

Good morning, WKGaser, Robustus, yankie, MidnightSun, Dino, mnjrfan, Lighting10K, JM, org, senile, TUrtLE, and scout!

Robustus, there's a possibility of snow in the far northeastern part of GA, too. :( As for your mom...yes, it doesn't take much to make her happy. :)

MidnightSun, getting bills in the mail (or even online notices) is no fun for me either. :(

mnjrfan, glad you're making progress on those leaves. Is there still a lot more to clean up? As for the World Series....I didn't really have a favorite team to win. I'm just glad (for all who watched) that the whole series seemed competitive. Now no more baseball and on to other sports!

Lighting, {{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}

JM, watch out! There might be some snow flurries in your area's forecast! Definitely colder temps!

org, hmmmmm, King Henry VIII; I believe I remember him from World History. :)

TUrtLE, thanks for the info on the sea stars. I actually don't know much about them at all.

scout, yeah, if you sat on the couch and ate bon-bons all the time, you'd need to take another class!

WKGaser, yankie, Dino, and senile, thanks for stopping in!

Agenda for this morning....chiro, Mom's, gas station, home. :)

Good Morning Claudie,

Juvenile sea stars on the Florence jetty, the county to my south.

Highlights from the article.

Divers in the Pacific Northwest faced a gruesome landscape over the past few months. Sea stars, stricken with a wasting syndrome whose cause has puzzled scientists across the globe, were disintegrating arm by arm into pale piles of gelatinous goo.

A glimmer of hope appeared on Florence’s North Jetty this month in the form of juvenile stars. An aquarium volunteer first noticed the tiny invertebrates during a recreational dive. She let the Aquarium know and a team was deployed the next day to survey the area.

The aquarium Safety Officer who led the science dive team said, “It was overwhelming, when we first got down there it looked like the rocks were covered with barnacles. We soon realized those white spots were thousands and thousands of stars. I have never seen them in numbers like that, it was pretty incredible.”

The thumbnail-sized juveniles were so abundant, as many as 202 in a square meter, that divers had to change their survey technique to get an accurate sample of the stars’ numbers before they ran out of air.

This may be the first sign of recovery in Oregon, where sea star wasting syndrome has ravaged local star populations.

Thousands of juvenile starfish, offspring of those who died off during recent “wasting” episode along the coast.

Have a Thankful Thursday!

On this date, in 1534, the English parliament passed the Act of Supremacy, making King Henry VIII head of the English church.

Welcome to Thursday, Claudie!

Good morning, Claudie. I do understand, the PSL will stop many from buying season passes.

Good morning Claudie!

Not much happening here today. Not much happened yesterday either other than the usual yard work of bagging leaves. There's still bags of leaves at the curbside up and down the street. It happens every year that the pickup service begins to run behind because of the huge volume of leaves at one time. One year I remember it wasn't until the weekend that they finally got to us. It's also the time of year you can see who takes care of their yards, and who doesn't. I'd be embarrassed! Thankfully the neighbors around me take pride in their yards...

Disappointing finish to the world series! Oh well, as they say here in Minnesota (every year), "there's always next year!".

Have a great day! Later

Good evening all

It has been a super busy night for me. I wanted to stop in and say a quick hello while I eat my 4 AM lunch. We'll try to catch up Thursday night.
