   Judith posted on Dogs, Cats & Critters  If you get a chance, read Scent of the Missing. It's a wonderful book about the search and rescue dogs. A lot of information but a delightful story woven throughout the book.

   Judith posted on Suggested Viewing/Listening  Right now I have a list of friends/acquaintances who are going through rough times. It would be nice to assemble some funny and/or uplifting movies/books that would counteract the negativity/toxicity now in their lives. Any suggestions?

   BirdsNest  Definitely "Blind Side", it never fails to fill me with joy. One of Sandra Bullock's BEST movies. Also, another one that fits the bill "Rudy". I am not a sports fan but I love to watch movies about sports and "Rudy" is an uplifting movie,never fails to make me cry, but I come out of it feeling great.

Hope you can find something that will help your friends.

   Judith posted on Faith  The latest message from the Pope is that the bishops drop any church teachings in favor of taking a more "fatherly" role in the lives of the congregation. Whatever that means. My churches (I alternate between two )are just about empty at this point. Can't imagine what effect this pope is having on the Catholic Church, but I'm getting the feeling he is just tapping the last nail in the coffin.

   Gerty  Miss Judith---only speaking for myself, I make it a rule to ignore the reports of what the Pope says from 'journalists'.

What the Pope says should be taken seriously since he is (according to the teachings of the Church ) infallible in matters of Faith and Morals. If His Holiness desires to 'directly message' his clergy and the faithful, he does so in a formal encyclical.

Everything else is off the cuff and open for all kinds of misinterpretation---most of which is directly done by MSM.

   Judith posted on Household Hints  Anyone know of a site that tells you multiple uses for common, everyday household tools? I was talking to my brother the other day and he told me he uses the power washer to strip his radiator covers (taken outside )to prepare for painting. Right now, I'd like to use the leaf blower for dusting and then the power washer, inside, for cleaning. I know I can't, but the idea entertains me.

   Judith posted on Health & Diet  Polymalgia Rheumatica? Anyone heard of this? I have found, in the last year or so, asking the doctor if their "diagnosis" is a theory or based in fact and asking them if their "treatment" is just a shot in the dark, makes them VERY testy. Now this new one (see opening question ), can't figure out if it is along the lines of fibromyalgia or what? The treatment is prednizone and the doctor's statement that even if that helps, it does not help with the diagnosis (i.e., shot in the dark )is where I am right now. I really am not liking this new medical world.

   Balogreene  Judith, I would research this on the internet. Prednisone is a steroid. People I know who have taken it for rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatoid psoriasis, and familial tremens (like Parkinsons, only not ). All except my grandmother gained a LOT of weight. But mormor (grandmother ) had what the nurses called "Prednisone skin". It was transparent and very thin, like the skin of my very premature nephews when they were born. She bruised incredibly easily, and anything would rip the skin right off, she couldn't wear bandaids, and all the stuff the doctors used was horrible. Granted, mormor took prednisone for 10 or 15 years, but, you have to know this should only be a short term solution.

   Balogreene  Judith, one more thing, rheumatoid arthritis, and rheumatic psoriasis are both auto-immune diseases. I would also check that out.

   Judith  Balogreene, thanks for the advice and info. I was reluctant to start the prednisone, but after almost two years of feeling miserable, I decided to let the doctors experiment. And, for a few weeks, was feeling much better. Until I got rear-ended. Now, the parts of me that were not miserable, have joined the misery section. I think this all started with contracting lyme disease.

   Balogreene  Judith, we have to at least do our own research and question our doctors. Mine usually say, "Because I said so". Some, I've left cause I don't trust them. Some I trust, but continue to see. I feel guilty, cause I don't do what they say any more. I've tried, it doesn't work. I'd love help myself, but none of them seem to know what I need.

   Judith posted on Suggested Reading  Do any of you use your Kindle for anything other than reading books? Suggestions? And if you want to read it in bed,any ideas for holders (home made would be nice )so I don't hurt my hand? I hurt my hand holding books or the kindle so a holder that would accommodate either/both would be appreciated. I recently bent a metal book end to hold my Kindle on the table, but would like something for the bed. Also, can you get a separate gift card from Amazon to buy books for the kindle? I'm thinking that would be a nice Christmas gift. I get Barnes and Noble gift cards for my son and his fiancee for their Nooks.

   Balogreene  Mom has a Kindle Fire and uses it for email, and internet as well as books when she travels. Several members of my family have the Kindle just for reading. Mom props hers on a pillow in her chair. I read sitting up in bed, always have. My sister reads lying on her side and I don't know how she doesn't kill her neck and back. I love the holder StormCnter pointed us all to.

I actually put the Kindle on a pillow on my bed, or if I'm leaning back, on my stomach.

   Amelia85  I use my Kindle for email and internet news when I travel. I have a very early model, thank goodness it is NOT wifi, as it lets me connect almost anywhere in the world, with no cost. I've used it in South America, above the Arctic circle in Norway, in Russia and in the Middle east without connection problems.

   Judith posted on Gardening & Landscaping  T believe this is the week we start the amaryllis for Christmas blooming. Anyone doing anything else? I need to pick up the paperwhites for after Christmas. They make a nice house gift when you are visiting. Something to look forward to in the dark months after Christmas. Any ideas about putting the amaryllis in soil as opposed to rocks?

   Carmen  I just pulled my Amaryllis out of the paper bags they have been sleeping in and will plant them in pots tomorrow. I always use soil and then after they bloom I start fertilizing them. They will get planted back in the ground as soon as it is warm in the spring. Then, in late fall, they go back into paper bags to sleep for a month or more.

I started with two $5 bulbs from Walmart several years ago. I hybridized seeds from those blooms and grew babies. It takes 7 years from seed to bloom so you have to be patient. (If you live in a zone where they can live outdoors, it won't take 7 years. I am in Z5, NW IL )

The original two parent bulbs have grown huge and have split into additional bulbs. I think I have 6 now as well as about 20 babies.

   Judith posted on Health & Diet  I recently made an appointment at a medical clinic in boston. They required my race and the extent of my education in order to make the appointment to receive medical care. Also my age and gender. I don't remember the race and education part from previous times and I'm almost 65. I'm getting a little creeped out by the info that is required for medical assistance.

   Balogreene  I wonder if you'd gotten away with, "we can discuss that at my appointment"? The age and gender do give clues to health and conditions. As for "race", I'm Caucasian, but, my Norwegian ancestors have a high incidence of arthritis, but no one asks me if I'm Norwegian, they just want to know I'm white.

   Judith posted on Pet Peeves  I have disliked that look since it first appeared on arafat's face many decades ago. I'm thinking that with all the beta or metro-sexual men around today, perhaps that is the only way young men can telegraph their masculinity. Our society has made it unacceptable to demonstrate any strong masculine traits. When was the last time you saw a strong man on tv, in the movies or in public?
