Evening M6, Tru, Geez, Claudie and BB

Tru 2 of my riding friends work at the local hospitals and they say a lot of the patients that go to the ER just enjoy "poor health". They shouldn't be there. Take up valuable time and resources, get sent home just to go to another ER. I don't get it. I've never found being in the ER all that pleasant!

Claudie yes we too had a major weather swing. We were hoping to get some rain out of this front but not a drop. We too are going to be in the low 30s Saturday and Sunday night. It should be good weather for the trick or treaters but of course I won't get any lol

tru, I think you might be correct (about your friend). When I was younger, the ones that demanded attention for no reason were called attention whores. Not a nice term, but sometimes appropriate.

We're looking at a freeze Friday and Saturday nights, which might put a damper on the trick or treating. Trish loves to see the costumes, so she'll come home tomorrow night. But, that means getting up at 3 a.m. Saturday.

Geezer,l sure leave myself open with my poor grammar and sentence construction, don't I?
Well the Giants gave away game 6 but came back last night to win. I am much happier. Not that l am a big fan of games, but l like to see local teams win anytime. Much more fun to watch than losing. That makes sense..
About the weather guessers, yes l agree. They predicted rain all week and it is 80's and dry as a bone.

The game went well, the Fearless leader brought her dog and she required a lot of attention. Now l love Bella, but there are times a dog needs to stay home. Fearless Leader really requires the love and attention of this dog now tho. She really is one of those who have a companion title. In this case it really is a necessary companion.

Speaking of attention, there is a lady here who is, IMO, addicted to attention. Fairly new to us and l am trying to figure her out. She was in the hospital a while back and they couldn't release her tho her dr said her legs were strong, she felt nervous that she would fall. They kept her much longer than usual. Then she got an unbelievable 3 months of daily visits at home from therapists and nurses etc. When that ended she called the ambulance coz her b/p was low and she said she fell. Since being home this time, her sister brings her all her needs, she refuses to go out .. During the game 6 she called and said "could someone come over as her heart was racing and she was nervous". One lady sat with her til she calmed down. Last night she called 911 and they came and chastised her because it was not an emergency. She couldn't get past her screen with her walker to get to the bathroom, so she called 911.
IMO she has fallen in love with all the attention and won't stop requiring it now. That is what l have decided in watching and hearing it all, dr reports from sis and all.
Before her first attack of I am not sure what, something to do with her heart. She said it wasn't a heart attack. Just stopped. But before that she was the most social person, and hung around outside just waiting for someone to visit with. Came to all the get togethers, and full of compliments for everything, and everyone. What a change.

Forecast for yesterday: Early morning showers, gradual clearing then sun in the afternoon. We went to play golf. Reality: Early morning showers followed by mid and late morning showers, then early, mid and late afternoon showers.

Today's forecast: Cloudy, with a diminishing chance of rain. Reality: Not a cloud in the sky.

I think the weatherguessers are a bunch of monkeys with a dart board...and dull darts.

Good morning, jan,

Whoooeee! Such a difference in today's weather over yesterday! Highs only in the mid-60s (lows in the mid-30s) and windy. There's even a possibility of snow in the far northeastern part of GA. Autumn has definitely arrived! At least it'll be a nice night tomorrow evening for all the trick or treaters.

I bet your weather's very similar to ours, too.

I'm going to start putting raisins in my oatmeal, too.

My agenda for this morning....chiro, Mom's, gas station, home. :) Hopefully, short and sweet.

Have a great day!

Good evening! We are indeed back to the Nov. weather we have had for weeks -- cool and damp. And there are flurries forecast for Halloween -- one of my least favourite f-words. In winter, fine. But this is October, for heaven's sake. We are going into the city for that evening, since we NEVER get kids here. And the chance of fl***s will be less in town. Our friend we will hang out with hasn't even had frost yet, and we've had a couple of heavy ones the last couple of weeks.

Jan, I agree about the Ford family still making news -- and I must admit I was getting addicted to my daily fix of idiocy. So I will still look out for what all of them are doing. And I'm hoping that criminal charges will stick some time.

Tru that sounds like me seating 9 in my living room! I did make it work out though. Need to put the spare dining room chairs back out in garage but for now just have them along the wall.

BB I did hear about your election. I bet everyone will still hear about Rob Ford though. He's too much of a "character" to stay out of the news for long!

Still very warm today. Hoping for some rain with the front that's bringing cooler air tonight but not looking good :-(

I saw that Baylee. They just don't go away quietly do they?

Watched the Giants lose yesterday while eating Popeyes chicken and brownies. They had pumpkin pie and salad as well, but l didn't partake. Came home around 7. Gave up on them.

Tonight l will provide a crock pot dish and Fearless leader will make polenta. Haven't heard what the dessert will be.

My house is not as prettily decorated, but it would accomdate the group that was there last night. 6 as one fellow won't come. One can sit on my power chair, one on rocker and one in my lazy-boy and the other three can use my yard plastic chairs. And there are NO pets to trip over. Last night there were 2 cats. One was an escape artist and did succeed, and one lay stretched in the middle of the floor and refused to move.

Good evening! We have had lovely warmth today, but supposed to be back to normal coolth tomorrow.

AND the best news is that the clown-mayor of TO will only be in office for another few weeks, and his thug brother, who ran for mayor instead, lost. YAY! Of course the original clown will be back on city council instead, but he's replacing his brother, the one who replaced him running for mayor. Everyone got that? Oh, and a nephew who's still in school is now on the school board! But at least we don't need to be as embarrassed from now on.

Evening M6, Tru, Claudie, Geez and BB

I'll be so glad when the time changes this weekend! Having a hard time using only the sun to wake up to go to the barn. Yes I know I could use an alarm clock like most people but I become a serious clock watcher at night and sleep even worse than I already do!

It was 86 degrees here today. A/C back on at night. The heat was on 2 days ago. The weather changes are just crazy right now!!

Claudie I didn't know that about raisins. I have issues with my potassium levels because of my BP meds but I eat bananas. Think I'll add some raisins in my breakfast cereal or oatmeal :-)

Tru I LOVE bread pudding. Have to think about making some when it finally does cool off.

Our leaves still haven't changed very much. I was really hoping to get a pic of me with both of my horses in the same spot I took of Bandi the first fall I owned him. Looking more and more like I'll either have a green or no leaf backdrop this year :/

M6 that's a great deal on the generator. I thought about getting one last year but if I lose power I'd probably go to the barn when we can keep everything going with 2 generators. I usually have to be there in bad weather anyway to help with the horses but we'll have to see what happens this winter.

Got a hell of a deal on a new generator today. I called the company to ask if they could retro fit the 7500 watt one I have with a battery start. They said it wouldn't be cost effective, but could sell me a new 10,000 watt battery start one for $510 which is almost $600 under retail. It should be here next week.

"Rectify" sounds like something painful a proctologist does to you...

The mention of raisins reminds me of the time my friend asked what the brown things were in a dish he was served. Replied the waiter, "The ones without legs are raisins."

Just finished eating a baked item with raisins. I enjoy them and forget to eat them as much as l used to do. Bread pudding with raisins is nice.

Up earlier than usual again. Wish l could remember to turn on the TV when l wake up to stay at 3 or 3:30 a.m. , as that is the only time a program l got interested in is on Sundance, free now. It is a weird program, and l wonder if it will ever come to a resolution..name is "Rectify".

Good morning, jan,

When I talked to Mom yesterday afternoon, she told me that the head cook (who likes Mom) is trying to get some more rich-in-potassium foods/drinks to/for her. :) I didn't know this, but raisins have waaaaay more potassium in them than bananas do! So looks like Mom could be eating more raisins, which she DOES like. Yay!

Speaking of Mom, I'll be taking her to the store this morning, just a little earlier than I usually do. That's b/c we want to make sure she gets back home before they take a trip to Noah's Ark. They've been there before for a picnic and a visit with some of the animals. Mom's hoping for the same, but a visit to see MORE of the animals! It'll be a fun trip for them again. :)

Have a great day!

We're waiting for a storm to roll through tomorrow which will probably bring down most of the leaves. One of the neighbors came by a couple of hours ago asking if we'd seen anything unusual at their house this afternoon. We hadn't, but he said someone kicked in their side door. They're not real nice people and we suspect something nefarious, especially since they didn't call the police.

Good morning!

Geez, most people prefer to deal with dishes by washing them and putting them away on a shelf, rather than taking a hammer to them. At least I hope I'm in the majority on that one!

Jan, the colours have been disappointing here too. There are more different shades now than there were a couple of weeks ago, which is the usual time for the peak of amazing displays. But lots of trees have already shed all their leaves, or they have already turned boring brown. Do you have tamaracks down there? They won't turn yellow for another week or two, at least.

Good morning, jan,

I think we've been having Indian summer these last few days and including today; temps have been about 10° warmer than normal for this time of the year (in the high 70s/low 80s). Supposedly that'll end after today and the temps will get back into the low-to-mid-70s where they belong. Looking forward to the cooler temps again. At least it's also been sunshiny with just about no clouds in the sky at all; just a gorgeous blue, blue sky! :)

Have a great day!

Good evening! Kinda a nice relaxing day, but I did a few useful things at least.

Geez, you know I love that house! We'd just need to move it a coupla hunnert miles.

M6, that kind of furnace can last just about forever. The only way I can think of it's being expensive to replace would be to try to switch to forced air. Adding ductwork to a house would be messy and a big pain!

Radiators are common here, especially in older houses. Most newer houses have forced air, which easily accommodates central air conditioning. Boilers aren't a big deal to replace. Just a bit of plumbing involved. This house holds the heat pretty well. Those stone walls are 16" thick.

M6, no range hood yet, but they have until the 14th of November to order and install one. Now the dishwasher went out again. Same problem, so the tech l spoke to said they would bring the brain, the fuse and the panel as it had to be one, and probably not the fuse again. No cost to me so that is a good thing.

The stepdaughter's house went on the market Tuesday, and today is an open house. Here's a link to it on Realtor.com. The wall I repaired is in the kitchen, to the left of the sink. the small window I fabricated can be seen in the exterior picture showing the red garage doors and the window box under the window near it. The window is above the one with the window box.

Good morning, jan,

Hubby talked to Mom yesterday. He said she said she sounded just fine and dandy. :)

Daughter said the team that Emma cheers for won their football game, 26-7 (or something like that). Looks like this little team could be off to the play-offs!

m6gm, yeah, I knew that you'd be able to see the game today. In fact, the entire country will! Sure hope the Falcons do alright. <crosses fingers>

Well, today's going to be just a tad different, as far as the Falcons' game goes. You see, they are playing against the Detroit Lions in London! The game starts at 2:30 PM London time, and that's...9:30 AM ET!! Oh, my! What a crazy time for a football game! Other than watching the game, well, that'll pretty much be it for this day!

Have a great day!

I'm still waiting for the leaves to start really changing color but afraid I'm going to be raking a lot before that happens. They just seem to be falling off without much change :-(

M6, if you happened to be around when the leaves were falling, I'm sure we could find another rake for you!

If anyone has heard of the Montreal Massacre (Dec. 6, 1989), the killer of the 14 women was also the son of a Quebecoise woman and a non-practicing Muslim father, who was originally from Algeria. He is not usually counted as part of the same problem, because he changed his name to his mother's, and was apparently an atheist - but of course had severe mental problems.

Afternoon jan, BB, geez, tru and Claudie. I ran the generator for an hour and a half yesterday when the power went out and discovered a gas line leak. I don't know if it's due to the ethanol in the fuel or what, but we'll have to fix it before the bad weather hits. It's beautiful today though; right now 79.

BB, I totally agree about the need for mental help. The USA is good about throwing money at a problem before it's understood and then sweeping things under the rug. I think the real reason you'd want Trish and me up there would be to rake the leaves. lol

jan, I heard from Ras yesterday. She's concerned about Bandi as well.

geez, today should be good golf weather.

tru, new range hood yet?

Claudie, I get to watch the Falcons tomorrow, but only because they're playing in London.

Good morning!

Yes, geez, I made a typo! The proper spelling is Quebequois -- I was going to say "pure laine" but that would have been even more obscure. It means someone born and bred from pure French stock in Quebec, going back hundreds of years, but the phrase is not politically correct any more. But both killers this week were born there -- one with a father from N Africa, and both converted to Islam only as adults.

The other event I'm talking about happened a couple of days before the Parliament HIll attack -- a man in a car deliberately ran into and tried to kill two soldiers, who were not doing anything. One of them died as a result, and police killed the hit-and-run driver. He was the one who was pure laine.

M6, I've been thinking about the immigration-policy theories, and the only immigrant I can remember who killed anyone in a rage was a Russian university prof named Valery Fabrikant, who went off the rails, apparently because he was not given tenure. So he somehow thought that killing his dept. head would help? ? ? ? He also killed 3 other profs. Naturally, he has been locked up ever since.

Good morning all

Has to be a quick post but better than none I guess!

BB the world was saddened at that shooting :-( Murder is murder no matter the culture!

Obviously been enjoying this weather for riding but exhausted at night when I get home. No worried on sleeping lol

Finally turned on the heat Wed. night. Even I'm not a fan of the house getting into the 50s. Was 39 Thurs am and 38 this morning. Supposed to hit 78 today then back to low 80s. Kind of crazy!!

Finally found some wood for sale. Oak/hickory mix. Delivered and stacked..long bed truck size for $120. Beggers can't really be choosers because I never saw any for sale last year!!

Time for me to get to the barn. I do read everything in the evening but haven't even been finishing off my points. Gas prices are getting low here though. Not in my area but I did fill up for 2.79/gal so not too shabby!!

Good evening!

M6, the liberal refugee laws ended a while ago -- even before the last Liberal govt. ended. And they were not a bad thing. Lots of US draft dodgers and deserters arrived - and yes it's a cliche but some have been our good friends! Nowadays there are a lot of hoops to go through, and not everyone gets in. But as I said earlier, both of the soldier-killers from this week were born right here. One was Quebequios, the other had a father from Libia to begin with; both converted to Islam after obvious problems adjusting to normal life. So it's hard to see what different immigration laws would do. Better support of the mentally ill, yes.

And tell Trish that we have lots of trees, and she's welcome to drag you up for a visit!

Afternoon jan, BB, geez, tru, Claudie and wacky. I think Indian Summer starts for us tomorrow and will last into Tuesday; a couple of days will be close to 80.

BB, I've heard for several years that Canada has very liberal laws regarding political asylum. Some people have even theorized that we need to watch our northern border as much or more so than our southern one. It's very sad to see in any country though.

geez and jan, there's love, but no marriage OR baby carriage.

tru, I haven't heard anything on the news about fires there; have things come back under control?

Good morning! And it is nice and sunny here -- proof that not all of the bad weather in the States comes from the Great White North! We haven't even seen one flake of white so far, and I hope we don't for a couple of months.

Tru, the man shot was a soldier in the reserves; we don't have marines. And there was another soldier killed, deliberately, a couple of days before in Quebec. Both killers are themselves now dead, but both were also born and raised here and decided that being a fanatic muslim made sense to them. That is the worst part of the whole business.

Weather from Hell, here. Rainy, cool, and real windy. We're in a Nor'easter. It's good it's not a bit colder or we'd be shoveling - a lot.

Bailey l too was shocked seeing that on the news. Canada doesn't have that kind of madness like we are getting used to ..First he shot the Marine who was standing sentry duty and so innocent and unsuspecting. Awful. Just sickening.

Wow! I'm a bit numb after spending as much time as I could listening to news from Ottawa starting this a.m. Seems like it is all over, but no one is ready to admit it yet. What a disgusting thing for that maniac to do.

Jan, we'd even read the books!

Evening geez, M6, Tru, 330, BB and Claudie

Geez!!! LMAO!!!! It's like that children's rhyme..first comes love, then comes marriage but in M6's case it's insurance coverage lol

Had to do the barn this morning because the woman that usually does it had an 8am meeting....on her day off!!! UGH But she got back fairly soon and we rode then there's always things to do around a barn so like painting we just keep on going.

Tomorrow we're taking both horses off the farm. Perfect weather for it!!

BB actually I think both you and your SO would enjoy the food. It's always great and almost always vegetarian or they make both options as more than half of the club are vegetarians!!
