Morning one and all, warm welcome to Mack Trucker: always nice to see a new face in the kitchen.
Yesterday was a good day. Oncologist is happy with progress, next batch of chemo starts in a week's time, so if in about 10 days I go awol for a week, do not be surprised. She is not going to twitch the chemical mix, which means it will be another 7 days of purgatory, but known purgatory. Both she and I know I'm tough enough to take it. She just going to up the ante on the anti-nausea meds.
On the really plus side, began this at a weight of 92 kgs. on the hospital scales (yeah, I know, it means nothing to me, why can't they work in real money?!). After the week of being unable to eat, got on those same scale yesterday and was 91.3kg. My weight is holding up, which is really important in the battle to beat cancer. So bring it on, if the chemo makes me feel so bad, just think what it's going to the cancer!
And...so far, what little hair I have left has not fallen out as a result of the treatment.
thanks fo rthe updates TOny ... glad to see you upbeat and determined ...

Kilos to pounds conversion is very easy .. you multiply KG by 2.2.

SO .. you multiply 92 times 2 = 184. The you divide 18.4 by ten, which gives you 18.4. Then add the two results ... 184 plus 18 = 202 lbs.

this was the second time we've ever did one, and we actually did fairly well. so it was worth the time, besides my hubby was on call for the day and we had to stick around the house anyway.
the biggest problem is i don't like tossing anything out, aways thinking i'll eventually use it again, which i never do.
but my hubby throws out Everything! which really burns my azz up, had more fights over that too. LOL
ok, i admit it - im a hothead heh...
;)
I find it really hard to throw things out too ... but I used to argue with my wife that there are SO many things we never really needed so why did we buy it?(yes, most of that stuff is by her!!).... ANd like you, I hated when she cleared things out without showing me what she was getting rid of ...

Couldn't have been easy coming off the dreaded weed Tony...speaking from experience.
Not mentioned this before, but Tony knows, so
here goes....
I was reading this book, this being many years ago, to do with keeping healthy and got to the
end to find some exercises that one could do to improve their health....one involved running up and down stairs, then taking the pulse rate which should return to normal within one minute flat.
Five minutes later my heart was racing fit to burst...lol
Being pregnant, I thought, aye up, time to give up smoking, it's not doing me any favours, so I packed it in there and then...a 20 year habit of about 15 a day.
Fast forward to being on bed rest in the maternity hospital...sadly lost the twins I was carrying..it was discovered I had cancer. Had I not, it would have continued to grow inside me. A rare form a
Hydiditiform Mole....I also made the mistake of reading up on it, found an outdated book in the library which put the fear of God in me....
I was spared chemo...merely had tests weekly, then fortnightly, monthly, for two years...then came the day...given the ALL CLEAR.
So when I say I know how you are feeling Tony, please believe it.
I won't make reference to this again, it's over, I survived. As you will, great attitude you have, the only one to have.
It's quite a story EL ... I admire how you handle things when they get tough, you've got the right attitude yourself ...

was a great consolation.

So far I saw no mention of the
Ohio Kidnapping..
and the sudden safe return of the 3 girls,
Almost impossible to believe they lived in the heart of
the locality where they would have been known..
For TEN years!!
HARD to imagine that folks like these kidnappers
exist and can in a sense 'take lives' so casually
and suffer no pangs off conscience for years on end!!!
Shiver!!!
Worse still, I heard an expert say,
Not only are they without a conscience...
furthermore, they watch it all unfold on TV ..
and the frustration and excitement
It creates brings them continued sexual gratification!!
The mind truly boggles.
Hoping the poor ladies will be adequately cared for and in
some measure, later, have SOME kind of a peaceful
existences... Denied them for so long.
Watching further developments of this on Sky News this evening Grace, what an amazing story this is, as one onlooker said 'it doesn't always work out like this'..how right he was.
Doesn't quite make sense how it could remained so for a decade,
but what a wonderful community this is, everybody is overjoyed
at the girls' being released from what has been virtually a prison.
It will be a completely new experience for the five year old coming into the world...adaptations for all concerned.
Certainly is a happy ending.

Yes indeed, El,
Great community spirit,
What dreadful deprivation of their
Freedom,
But, like you say,
No point in looking back..
They're free now and with a lot of
Help I'm SURE they'll get from everyone,
and help to move on.

El,

In your Post 25486. Today,
Very sorry to hear ..of your double ordeal then..
Even though it was a long time ago,
It must have been very difficult...
SO glad you came thought in the end.

Breezy and colder tonight,

Ali got all her injections today there was a lotta
coaxing: pulling :dragging: and pleading to get
her in the vet's rooms,
She remembered last year lol!

I had pity for her, she was so frightened,
Her eye pupils became greatly enlarged..

In particular she HATED the kennel cough vac..
The Vet remarked that none of them like it
As it must be administered up the nose!
he said he hoped soon it can be done
by injection..
A lot easier.

Good Night El an' all

Tony, cutting in here, if that is found to be the reason..i.e.
that the kill-cord was not in use, you would think that it would
be beneficial to bring in such as they have on trains, in other words 'the dead man's handle'. If for instance, the driver has a heart attack let us say, or loses concentration, the train stops.
Just a thought.
'Afternoon Grace...glad you asked this, interested to know myself.
Not really feasible on a RIB - it's what the kill cord is supposed to do. However, you cannot legislate to make people use one. Apparently, this family (I assume one or other parent) had undertaken some RYA training. On all RYA powerboat courses, we emphasise the importance of the kill cord: I know, I teach them. Sadly, familiarity can breed contempt and bad practice may creep in. However, I would emphasise that speculation until the MAIB finishes its investigation and publishes its report, is premature.

'Morning Grace....I see you have rain over there in Ireland...
snap...dreadful day. I put the Geraniums which I had over-wintered on the bathroom window sill, out the other day when
the weather was nice...and could see them from the living room
being battered by the wind, so I brought them all in again last
night, fortunately they were still in their pots. Decided to put them back in the bathroom. lol I am rambling on now.....

Yeah, it wasn't the best of times to say the least back then...newly married too. Can honestly say positive thinking
is half the battle in keeping one's sanity at least.

The plot thickens regarding the three young women...questions are being asked as to what sort of community would not 'feel' that there was a situation..they have a point. You think you have heard it all, then something like this comes along, unbelievable.

Poor Ali...I think the bigger the dog the more sensitive they are going to the Vets, then again, a small dog you can carry through that door. Hope she got lots of treats to make up for her horrid day!...:) It's always amusing in a way to see them being pulled into the surgery, but certainly not from the animal's point of view.

Here...I bought a new 'tower' for the cats, with little nooks and crannies, and ledges, a nice bed on the top....
This morning I emptied a cardboard box of cat pouches ready to put into the re-cycling....Blue has claimed it and is curled up inside..
Rosie has decided to share Ginger Bailey's bed...much to Bailey's disgust, he has always been his 'own person' lol.

'Morning Tony...I really haven't got much idea of boats, my total
experience with them is navigating a canal boat through Marple locks, most exciting too. I should imagine it would be all the harder for the surviving parent if she learnt that it was down to human error, considering the loss of her husband and daughter and
life changing injuries to herself and little boy. Really shocking accident.

Tony that's interesting info in above post,
reminds me of wearing the seat belt while
driving, anyone can have a careless moment...
Sometimes to their cost.

As you say, it will be interesting to study
the findings on this later on.

Raining here again...sigh ..

Yes indeed,
A lot to come out yet re the dreadful abduction..
I see where the brothers are more or less
Innocent in it.. and that reliable info would have
come from the girls..but one imagines
they must have known if they were living
Near and visiting him.
They are checking out another house now it seems..
Related to the incident.

****

Lol
I agree about it being amusing,
other folks were highly amused to see my
Big dog being cajoled. Lol..
She almost clung on to me and wouldn't leave me..
Just like a baby(:

what really got to me was,
She was giving everyone 'the paw'
as she knows she is loved for that and was trying
In her way..
to win them over lol
Sweet innocent creature!

***

That sounds great about the cat tower! Lol
Very posh.

Did anyone fight for the
Penthouse apartment, yet!
Or is it shared(:

GOOD Morning People!!

found a few little baby rabbits tucked away in my yard, soooo cute, only problem is theres a neighborhood cat that roams the place..
and he seems to be sniffing the area out.
>sigh<

I keep thinking maybe I should move them further away from the area, but my hubby says maybe the mother won't come back if I try too...

I know, its crazy of me to worry about something stupid like that, isn't "nature" suppose to do that?
lol

PFfff...:)

Your hubby is probably right, but...worse scenario, suppose the mother doesn't come back? If she is injured or worse?
Nature would then certainly take over, but would you be happy allowing that?
It's a long haul rearing babies, could you wait a wee while and if she doesn't come back, take them to a shelter?
Just a thought.
Bora Da!
