<quoted text>Hi Liz, how r u? Just had to tell u guys of my experience at Golden Corral. We were on a mini vacation at a place called Splash Lagoon in Erie PA. Super fun place for the kids, is an indoor water park. While we were there, we ate at the Golden Corral. All the food taste very good and there was a huge variety of different foods. We all ate pretty much the same things, but i made myself a taco salad in a shell bowl. That is the only thing I ate that no one else did. After we got home that night, i was deathly ill. I never was so sick in my life. Had to go to the emergency room and they said i had food poisoning. After i was better, i did a lil investigating on this restaurant and found out a lot of gross stuff. I will not say just in case some of u already ate there or still want to try it cause it would just turn ur stomach. Almost makes me barf just thinkin about it.
Hope u all r having a nice week...it is storming here in PA right now.
That is good information to know. I will probably never again be where there is a Golden Corral, but I will warn others.

This is sad to hear 'cause the commercials always make the food look so good. There's no Golden Corral in my neighborhood. But I will beware when traveling.

Good morning, Allbodies. I hope you have a great day.
It is cool enough right now that I can have my doors open and listen to the birds happy songs. Within the hour, it will be too hot to do that.

Liz, that is a pretty impressive list. Thank you for posting that.

My youngest grandson is thirteen years old today. The party is going to be at his house this evening.
I am excited. I will get to play with my new great grandson. In 67 days, I will have Another new great grandson to play with. Nothing makes the cares of the world go away like holding a baby in ones arms!

Last night was wonderful. I got to hold my precious little great-grand.(Whenever I could wrest him away from Pa-pa). He is the most contented little guy, and makes this sweet little purring noise when he's having his bottle.

I hope everyone is having a really nice day.

You are so right about how precious little babies are, I haven't held one in sooo long. We just got home from Hot Springs, AR. We had a great time but I'm pooped. My last laser surgery is Tuesday, I'm ready to get it over with. I hope you all had a great weekend.

It's good to see you, my friend. I wish you the very best of luck with that surgery on Tuesday. I know you will feel greatly relieved when it is all over.

Good Luck Queen.
Awwwwww Murph it sounds like you had a nice time at the party. I love when the babies are feeding and they look up all loving and content. How's he sleeping at night?
Good morning, Liz and Allbodies. I hope you have a happy day. It is a lovely 66 degrees here!

Liz--He sleeps until 3 AM, has his bottle and change, and goes right back to sleep. He has had his Pa-pa wrapped around his little finger from day one. It is cute to see the way he snuggles up into a little ball on Pa-pa's shoulder and Pa-pa holds him with one hand. There were several days when they couldn't bring him over because the 14 year-old GS was sick and Pa-pa was about to go through Landyn withdrawal.

Murph I can see why Papa would go thru baby Landyn withdrawal. He's such a doll. Sounds like a good sleeper too.

I need to email you later. I was thinking of your grand kids before I went to bed last night and got myself all confused ( again).

For some reason I was thinking Kim was Great granddaughter's grandmother. That's not right ( right)?

Did I tell you my cousin Carin moved again. Hopefully this time it's permanent. Her kids have lived in 4 different houses over the past 2 years. Remember I showed you pictures of the nice yellow house they were renting with the option to own? The owners decided at the last minute not to sell so they had to go house hunting again at the last minute. They just closed on a house yesterday. It's a older home but looks beautiful. I'll send you pic's when she posts some more.

I learned something today that I want to share:

My 14 year-old GS has been sick for 17 dsys. Headache, sore throat, joint stiffness, and no strength. His mom took his to a doctor the third day. They tested for strep and mono and both tests came out negative. They said he had pus pockets in his tonsils. He was on antibiotics for two weeks.

Now, the 13 year-old has the same symptoms. His mom took him to a different doctor. She said she has seen Many cases of Strep G this summer. She said that usually, when they check for Strep, they are looking for Strep A. She says that it shows up immediately, while it takes Strep G from 48 to 52 hours to show up on the tests. She thinks this is what GS has (and what his brother has) and put him on antibiotics.
She told him to gargle COCA-COLA or LEMONAID several times a day and either one would take care of the pus pockets.
I have Never heard of this.

Now, the 13 year0old

Murph thanks for sharing. I never heard of there being different types of strep.

Hope the boy's are feeling better soon.

Football officially started yesterday. Noah hasn't been running at all during the off season and obviously neither have a few of the other kids. A few of the kids ended up vomiting. Noah didn't but felt like he was going to plus it was about 80 degrees and muggy. Makes me wonder how the kids down south can stand the practices. I wonder if they mainly practice on indoor turf fields.

LOL.......Kim is the problem. For some reason I think she's mother and grandmother to all!

Oh I just read somewhere that they expect retailers that have pulled Paula Deens cookware off the shelf to sell it to retailers like Big Lots who will in turn sell it at discounted prices.

My new great grandson had a doctor visit today.
He weighs 10 pounds, 8 ounces and has grown an inch!!! His head is 15.25cm.--This means that all the darling little caps that came with the cute outfits are Way too small.
This boy is ready for fried chicken and pork chops!

Oh no please don't tell Kim that a crazy lady in New York thinks she has 15 kids and 12 Grandkids..........LOL
What are you doing for the 4th?
My sister is coming over if she feels up to it and we're grilling steak, shrimp, eggplant and zucchini. I never did the eggplant myself before but I'm guessing all I have to do is brush it with some italian dressing.
Remember I told you my daughter got in my sister's pool to help uncover it and she said it smelled like a swamp? Last weekend I saw it. It looks like a swamp as well. The water is a lovely neon green color. I'm not sure what is up with the pool. She's shocked it and has been putting in the different chemicals and it still isn't clearing up. <quoted text>
Has the pump been back-flushed? I wonder if the pump and filter are working properly. I remember my pool doing that once and, as I recall, it was weather related.

Both of my sons are having cookouts and fireworks and I have been invited to both. If I go to either one, it will be to the son's who lives less than a mile from me. My older son has wonderful Fourth of July parties and, since his house is on a hill, the fireworks can be seen from all over. But, the parties have gotten so large, I think I will go to the smaller one.
It sounds like you are going to have a lovely holiday.

I felt like you today when you get lucky at the estate sales. I was in the grocery store and bought this cute cassrole dish that was 17.99 for only 2.50. <quoted text>
Yes, he still has all that hair and when it is wet, it is really curly. GD says she has to brush it down flat after his bath or it wants to stick out in all directions. She had curly hair as a baby and still does. Her dad had Really curly hair and still would if he didn't keep it 1/2" long.

Now I'm not sure about our cookout. Nancy isn't feeling well. I'll call her later this morning and try to see what's going on there and if I need to get over there.
She's been taking care of the pool since her husband passed and never had a problem before but at this point I can't be sure what she really has and hasn't done to the pool. She said she's brought the pool water in several times to be tested.
The damn pool should have never been uncovered this year in the first place. There's no one to even use it.
<quoted text>
I don't know whether the baby will be there, since the 13 year-old has been sick. I think he's probably no longer contagious, but this stuff is Powerful. His brother first got sick 18 days ago an he is still worn out from it.

Does the pool have a sand filtering system? If it does, that may need to be emptied, cleaned, replaced with clean sand, then back-flush the pump and keep it running. She probably shouldn't add any more chemicals until she determines where the problem is.
I am sorry to hear that she is not feeling well today. That poor girl has really been through the mill.

Hey Allbodies. I hope you had a wonderful holiday yesterday and a lovely day today.
I have to tell you a trick I played on my oldest son. He and my new DIL bought a camper a week or so ago. They and my younger daughter and her fiance and 23 other couples are caravanning to Noel,MO to go canoeing.

When he first told me about it,a few days ago, I said, "Ain't nobody invited me to go to Noel." He hurriedly assured me that I was invited.
Today he called to tell me that they would be stopping by with a plate of food on their way to Noel. I asked if he had my bed ready. He said he did. I asked if he had my heating pad plugged in. He said, "No heating pad." I told him to stop at Wally and get one.

I stuffed some towels in a canvas bag and had my swimsuit hanging out the side. When they pulled into the driveway, I hobbled out with my bag and carrying my Pall Malls, lighter, and sun glasses.
New DIL said, "Were are you going?" I said, "To Noel, canoeing with y'all."
They both got a big kick out of that.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
