There is stupid stuff on tv early morning. I was channel surfing and found this movie called "rubber", it is about a killer tire, that rolls around and makes animals and peoples heads explode. This killer goodyear could be the only movie worse than attack of the killer tomatos. Even coffee does not help this kind of bad.
Tentacles is worse. That's about a killer octopus. The actors were as talented as those who acted in the old 8mm porn movies(not that I ever watched any). LOL

I, with you, Hempburn. It's obscene what they pay those skinny women to do commercials. The rest of us live on peanuts. Anyway, I like my coffee the best. Wonder how much they paid "Juan Valdez" to do the coffee commercials.

What was the name of that kids' show with the stick horses? That is what I should have stuck with. Costs less in feed and hay.

Nothing is sacred anymore. Now they have Wiley Coyote and the Roadrunner with the Geico commercials and that lizard.

I bet next they have LUCY telling Charley Brown he can save 15% on car insurance instead of the 5 cent psychiatric diagnosis or telling Snoopy how to save money by coupling his dog house insurance.

I have a question for the preppers-- I take prescription medicine that cannot be abruptly stopped without horrible side effects. I have to get a written prescription monthly to get it filled and my doctor is 50 minutes away. What should I do so I will be prepared in case of an emergency that prevents me from getting to my doctor and pharmacy? I have asked my family doctor here in town if he will write for med in case of emergency but he is not allowed to. Thanks in advance for advice.

You might try just intermittent pausing and not stop altogether. Save up about a 10 day supply. If a disaster lasts longer than 10 days, you will probably be in trouble anyways for reasons other than the medicines. I have the same problem with blood pressure medicines that I get through the Veteran's Administration.I am supposed to take 2 different kinds twice daily, but I have skipped about every 3rd day and only taken one on that day. When I get a new supply, I replenish my stash so it will not be aged.

I don't think anything major will happen, HOWEVER...If there is some sort of disaster, you need to try to get as much saved up of that medicine as you can. My mother would be in the same shape. Luckily, her doctor lets her have a 6 month supply. Which she has on hand.
Here's hoping nothing bad happens.:)

I agree with you. I don't get overly zealous about long term "prepping" and leave that in the hands of the CREATOR. I just try to prepare for the short term.

Hi Question. That is a good question and I have thought about that myself.(Ancient Wolf does have a good idea.) I use a locally owned pharmacy instead of a chain drug store. They are really flexible with me and my mom about when prescriptions run out and you haven't made it back to the doctor and that sort of thing. If possible go back to your doctor a couple days early and if you can fill the prescription a couple days early then be sure to put those two pills aside each month.
I had a friend that was a drug addict. I remember one time "he said" that somebody stole his medicine and I believe he got new refills because of that. Whether it was really stolen or not I don't know. I said I HAD a friend that was a drug addict...he diied. Also you would be surprised at how many prescription drugs are out there floating around - not just the bad stuff either, even blood pressure meds and that sort of thing. I'm sure you are like me and don't even like the idea of going those routes but in an emergency I guess their will be options.
I would try to save a couple every month and use a local owned, hometown pharmacy. ALSO there are lots of herbs that you can use to treat all kinds of ailments. It would be good to read up on that and keep on hand what you might need. I'm glad you brought this up, I need to get our meds in order too.

Also, if you have friends/family who use to take the meds you need and they don't take them anymore - ask them if you can have their old meds. Yeah that's probably illegal but really you wouldn't be doing anything morally wrong.

I sure could use some nice neighbors. LOL. Other folks might think the same thing about me. Lol. I sure have ridden many tobacco stick horses back in the day. My Grandpa sure enough kept them in his barn. My sissy cousin and I would take them out and ride them. He always wanted to pretend he was a cowgirl. I know kids have a vivid imagination, but that was a toughie. Ahahahah. To those wondering, no I didn't he wasn't pretty at all, uck. LOL.

Speaking of emergencies, natural disasters and that sort of thing - I have been working on a "bug out bag" (BOB) as it's called by the serious preppers. Come to find out I already had a lot of the stuff, it was just scattered around the house here and there. I'm gathering it all up and putting it all in one backpack so I can get to it (all of it) should something happen. I think a lot of times we forget how serious a disaster could really be. In May of 2011 I guess I got a reality check on just how close we are to the New Madrid fault line. Because of all of the flooding they decided to blow a two mile long hole in the Bird's Point/New Madrid Levee. They blew the hole in two different explosions. We had heard them talking about it but as usual we weren't real concerned because it didn't affect us. I'm not sure but I'd guess we live at least 75-100 miles from that levee but when they blew that thing it rattled our front door real good! It soulded like somebody had tried to open the door to comme in but it was locked. I even got up to go see who it was at the door and looked around outside when nobody was at the door! lol So, should the big earthquake happen I figure I better be somewhat prepared. A lot of people say, "Oh it's not going to happen!" Well it has happened before! Reelfoot Lake in TN was made when an earlier New Madrid earthquake made the river run backwards! I think a BOB (bug out bag) would make a fine Christmas present! lol

I've had my personal bug out bag made for months. Don't forget though to diligently rotate anything in there that may expire, like aspirin, vitamins, sanitizers, etc. Even water purification tablets have a time frame for expiration dates. You'd not want to have to use it only to find that your supplies are not viable any longer..

I might Ebay off my bug out bag. Chances are sounding pretty fair that I'll not be around to use it anyway, so I've about figured that I might as well get a few bucks for it and have some fun before I check out. I'll know for sure within the next week or so.

I got some bad news from my doctor the other day.. I wasn't extremely shocked, I kind of suspected "this" for some time now already and knew that eventually something tangible would rear it's ugly head thanks to my doctors and all of tests that they've been ordering lately.

So the "monster" inside me was brought out of hiding and I'm aware of it now, paperwork and tests for proof.. Suspecting an illness and then finding out that your suspicions are true fact, well it's sobering folks. Very sobering.. I've not told the family yet. Going to hold off for a while, at least until after the holidays if I can get by with it for that long..

So if any of you kind users out there believe in the power of prayer, I can use all of them I can get. Don't want to go into any deep personal details here, but things aren't looking very good for old Nope as it stands right now... Say a prayer and keep me in your thoughts. It's going to be a rocky road to hoe and I'm not yet sure what options I'm going to choose for treatment..

_-_Nope_-_
*Poof* for now..........
