I have had a look over at the other site and noticed there is no sign of Howdy/winky in ages. I hope your all doing well and that your busy living full lives and that is why no one is posting.
Take care all.

That's very likely the reason, Roo. Hope you're doing well, too.

We here in Texas are "enjoying" one of the hottest summers in history. Is it winter where you are? What kind of winter do you folks have?

Hi Topazia,yes I am doing very well at the moment I have been on a high for a few weeks now and hope it continues.I keep an eye on the weather over there (I have a friend over there I chat with on line in Missouri)(I am a bit of a weather nut actually-phobias)we are at the end of winter and are going out with a bang we are having a huge cold snap with the best snow falling for the season happening now in the ski fields . I live mid way up the Australian east coast so this doesn't effect me but bloody cold here also at the moment .I much prefer the cold over the summer here though it is way to hot and the heat takes all my energy plus big storms bring on anxiety and panic attacks so give me winter any day.

Hi All !!

That is scary about the Yates thing...

Roo... I'm glad you can handle winter..
How cold does it get??(in Fah.?)
I'm not a fan of winter anymore...
I seem to dislike it more and more as I get older.
We see temps here of below 0'F.

I got blood tested by a Holistic GYN..
she tests each hormone level.
She found I was low in a couple ares and has prescribes 'natural' hormones.
(these are NORMAL symptoms of hormonal imbalances)
I am hoping my symptoms of fatuigue, anxiety,(mild-ish) depression...
are addressed with this...
I've had these symptom for well over a year...

I'm now taking 15 granules a day OUT of my 75mg Effexor.
Slow and steady...as she goes!!

(my mouse isn't working and I am on a laptop... how annoying to use the little pad thing!!)

Hi ImOneTwo
I am not sure what the temp is in F. our temps are in C.
and we get down to 0.C some nights but the days are beautiful average temp would be around 19 degrees a cold day would be 14.degrees.

19 degrees C. is about 66 degrees F, a cool day, maybe early spring or late fall here in Texas.

Definitely doable!

Hey, you guys! Our friend Karen from Wisconsin sent me some homemade dried tomatoes! Can you imagine? I can't wait to use them, probably in a pasta dish.

btdt is bugging me today...just needed to get that off my chest.

Oh, and I think I told you about my aunt that was prescribed Effexor? My mum had a talk with her and she's since switched meds - yay!

Haven't tried them yet; been too busy to cook lately, and it's so damn hot here I rarely turn on the stove or oven.

Glad to hear about the switch from Effexor. We Shall Overcome!(Heck, I'll bet most of you don't even know the origin of that phrase!)

Isn't it from the civil rights movement? Also, I believe it was a song?

LOL! Either you're older than I thought you are, or you've been reading your history. Yes, and Yes. It's a old hymn; civil rights protestors in the 60's sang it on marches. You get an "A" today, Snowy!

Thanks!! I'm 29 (younger or older than you thought?) and the civil rights movement wasn't even a part of my country's history - I'm Canadian! I might have to upgrade myself to an A+! Hehe ;)

Well, duh. I had forgotten you're from Canada. And you're much younger than I thought. For that, yeah, you get an A+. Old folks tend to think rather compartmentally - everybody's our age, everybody looks like us, and everybody thinks like us. If you plan to get old, be very brave.

We're having a much-needed rainy spell today, thanks to Hurricane (Tropical Storm??) Hermine.'Bout time.

Hi Ladies...!

We got 5" of rain in the north east.
Thats a record here.
Luckily the ground was very dry and absorbed a lot.
The rivers are very high which is great for fishing this time of year...
Because the Walleye swim up stream to here and the good fishing will start soon.

I'm bored this weekend...
I wanted to fish with the BF but he is putting in extra hours (roofing estimater... his work is busy due to the rain)
Hope we can go late this afternoon!!

Snowy.. you're younger than I thought...
The BF and I are gonna be 50 the same day in March...
and I'm feeling it...
I gotta keep with the exercise!!

Topazia... I remember that phrase...

Yep; you and I are "of an age".

An acquaintance and I were discussing age and the things that were going on around the time we started realizing what was happening, and we're agreed that whatever influence on culture the hippies gave us in the 60s-70s has pretty much dissapated. I remember the time strongly: it was about the time I started having kids and I was pretty enamored of the idea of living in a large commune and raising vegetables and protesting just about everything we didn't believe in. Of course, without a job it wouldn't have been half as much fun.

Do you know how much I wished I grew up in the 60's-70's when I was in high school in the 90's?! I used to wear my Dad's skin tight powder blue bellbottoms (they covered my shoes completely), with my Mom's tie dye shirt to school. It was awesome. Wish I could still fit into then (my Dad was a small man and my Mom even smaller).
