A man had 50 yard line tickets for the Super Bowl.

As he sits down, a man comes by and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him.

"No," he says, "The seat is empty."

"This is incredible," said the man. "Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the Super Bowl, the biggest sporting event in America , and not use it."

He says, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first Super Bowl we haven't been to together since we got married in 1967."

"Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. That's terrible. But couldn't you find someone else -- a friend, relative, or neighbor to take the seat?"

The man sadly shakes his head, "No, they're all at the funeral."

pork Chop Hill" is on the television.

don't know that movie

Christine

I was about seven, and it was my own fault, in a way. We were always taught to ask the dog's "Mum" before we touched it, and I didn't. I just bent over to stroke him, as his owner moved, and the dog snapped - his owner said the dog thought I was attacking her.
3:54 am
dizgrannie

Pork Cop Hill pretty sure its Clint Eastwood
3:54 am
rubyfoo

likely story! I've only known two airedales and they were sweet but dumb and one of them ultimately drowned in the family pool!
3:54 am
dizgrannie

cop=cHop
3:55 am
rubyfoo

we've had 5 chow chows over the years, and even with their terrible reputations, none of them has ever bitten anybody!
3:55 am
Christine

During the Korean War, the hill was considered worthless, but "they" insisted on the American troops taking and holding it. Gregory Peck is in the film. I used to work with his son - a brat if ever there was one.
3:55 am
rubyfoo

cop chop shop - where corrupt police sell impounded vehicles
3:56 am
rubyfoo

grteat at jeux de mots, poop at babble! lol
3:56 am
Christine

The dog was really a sweetie - I'd petted him before (and after) so perhaps he was spooked.
3:57 am
Christine

We had a toy poodle who savaged a hulking great German Shepherd (his head was larger than our little one), because she was defending my daughter.
3:58 am
rubyfoo

that is a nice story. I think my female would kill anybody who laid a hand on me, but, hopefully, I'll never know....
4:01 am
rubyfoo

hah, half!!
4:01 am
rubyfoo

yay
4:01 am
Christine

DD wasabout 3 1/2, and we were walking. Girl Puppy (her love name) sat on DD's feet, and backed up to get her away from the biiiiig dog, and the idiot wit the other dog thought that was funn - and said sic, or somesuch to his dog, who lunged at DD and the puppy.
4:03 am
Christine

Our poodle/giant killer hung on to the other dog's throat, growling what she'd do to him when she let go, while the youth was almost in tears that his dog was being hurt.
4:04 am
rubyfoo

I hope the shepherd was badly injured! With our old chow, Rufus (now deceased), who was a real gentleman, a shepherd, off leash, attacked him (on leash). The shepherd outweighed him by a good 20 lbs and Rufus had him down by the throat in a heatbeat, stook there looking at my husband for permission to kill the other dog. After that, the shepherd would pass our house on his belly, slithering like a furry snake
4:04 am
rubyfoo

I guess the throat is the vulnerable part!
4:05 am
Christine

They know they must defend their family. My parent
4:05 am
rubyfoo

I call Max Puppy Boy and Ruby Puppy Girl and they weigh more than 70 lbs!
4:06 am
Christine

My parent's had a pitbull who thought he was a lapdog - until someone looked twice at his family, then he became very still, and could-be-scary, if you didn't know him for the softie he really was.
4:06 am
herinfernallady

HEllo
4:07 am
rubyfoo

hello lady!
4:07 am
rubyfoo

I think pitbulls have beautiful heads but I've never known one. Not popular here, like chows, the French think they're dangerous
4:08 am
rubyfoo

this is a funny grid, hard, but it slowly seems to reveal itself
4:09 am
Christine

Then-husband pointed out our gir's pedigree was longer and more impressive than ours, but she was Girl Puppy and her litter-brother was Boy Puppy. In my friend's divorce, each took one of the pups, and she kept the Mother. Later, after another house move, she couldn't keep both dogs, so she gabe the puppy to DD. We had her until she was 13, and breast cancer took her from us. Thirty three years later, she's still in our memories, and part of many conversations.
4:10 am
herinfernallady

I have the best good dog story. My friend owns 3 very large dogs. She ordered a pizza and the dumb arse pizza guy tried to open the screen door and her dogs, two who are trained in security, one is a Douge and the other is a Belgium Shephard stalked to the door then did the HI. My friend says she swears the dogs would have pinned the guy to the ground then barked. Mr Pizza guy would have had to changed his shorts
4:10 am
rubyfoo

dogs enter your hearts and when they leave us, that part is still theirs!
4:11 am
Christine

Some owners of pitbulls are dangerous. My G.Grandfather bred pitbulls and Staffordshire pits. Dangerous only if trained by bad guys.
4:11 am
rubyfoo

I completely agree with that, Christine, it's the owners who ruin the dogs. I've seen people here kick their dogs!
4:12 am
rubyfoo

lady, I'm surprised they didn't eat the pizza!
4:12 am
herinfernallady

My friend has been abused for starving her dog when its the dog breed
4:12 am
rubyfoo

Max has mange but certainly hasn't been neglected!!!
4:13 am
herinfernallady

No Ruby they are very well trained in not touching the human food.
4:13 am
rubyfoo

I have to go and cook, will work on this some more after lunch
4:13 am
herinfernallady

Loves Ruby. Hi Christine
4:13 am

My first chow was an inveterate food-snithc
4:13 am
rubyfoo

snitch
4:13 am

ciao, chow chow
4:14 am
rbud

hi, all - my hubby used to have a pit bull that would quietly let intruders break into the house, but then wouldn't let them back out, lol! Caught a thief that way once.
4:15 am
Christine

Herinfernallady - looked up Douge - urban definition is marijuana.
4:16 am
Christine

But there was an entry for Dogue de Bordeaus - a mastiff type. Ain't typos great?
4:17 am
Christine

Bordeaux - silly gremlins.
4:19 am
herinfernallady

Yes and we call him a dDouge
4:19 am
herinfernallady

Yes he is a mastiff. He is fantastic
4:21 am
Christine

A pub near my parent's house had two mastiff that were supposed to be guard dogs, but during opening hours, they roamed the garden, and kids would pet them. My Dad tried to explain to the owners you were supposed to keep them away during the day, so that they'd know the pub was the workplace at night. But the owners said they felt mean keeping the dogs and kids apart.
4:22 am
herinfernallady

Hi Rbud
4:23 am
herinfernallady

Christine My friends mastiff is a big sook. Her other dog is meant to be vicious but she is my lap dog
4:24 am
herinfernallady

The mastiff is awesome
4:25 am
Christine

I figure that's why God invented locks and alarm systems, to keep out the bad guys -- and we could continue to keep our dogs as pets.
4:26 am
herinfernallady

Well her 3 dogs are trained as security. More so the Belgium and the Douge the Rotti is too inbred to be smart
4:26 am
Christine

I remember one of the pub's dogs leaning against me, and almost upending me.
4:27 am
herinfernallady

All 3 are rescues.
4:28 am
Christine

One of my nieces had a Rottweiler and a Pitbull. We have a lovely photo ofthe baby lying with his head on one forepaw, while the other was over the baby's chest. The baby was fast asleep.
4:28 am
Christine

One of the bad things about living in an apartment - no petas.
4:29 am
Christine

Not even a pet!
4:32 am
herinfernallady

Wow. My next door neighbour paid a dog bond to have their dog
4:35 am
Christine

DD thinks I should get a dog so that I'll walkj each day (I'm very lazy), and if I got a letter from my doctor stating I needed the dog for health reasons, the owner would have to allow it. One neighbor has one for this reason, but another, who just brought in a dog and started breeding it, had to get rid of it. The thought of sending an animal to the pound sends shivers.
4:36 am
Christine

Bloody gremlins are having a field day, screwing with my spelling.
4:37 am
herinfernallady

we had flash floding today
4:38 am
Christine

Was it near last year's burn sites?
4:38 am
herinfernallady

I am damn irritated that my teacher wouldn't let me out
4:39 am
herinfernallady

Not sure Christine
4:42 am
Christine

This year's fires are one of the reasons for our floods. The fires leave a greasy surface to the ground, the rain can't penetrate, and just slides off. There was a shot of a cachebasin that was so full of mud, the drain pipe, which stands 8.5* was buried in the center of the basin. Fortunately, we've had a few dry days, and the mud dried enough that the frontloaders could scoop it. Now they need to find a place to dispose of it.
4:44 am
herinfernallady

We have had sod all rain
4:46 am
Christine

We're at about 50% over 'normal' rainfall for this year, but after so many years of drought, there's still not enough in store for the coming years. And no-one remembers when was the last 'normal' year.
4:47 am
Christine

hink we're the only two still awake.
4:47 am
Christine

I even THINK so.
4:47 am
herinfernallady

Yes
4:49 am
herinfernallady

1996 decent winter
4:49 am
Christine

Was that good for rain?
4:50 am
herinfernallady

Yep
4:50 am
herinfernallady

Yes. That is why I remember
4:53 am
Christine

Redhat should be accepted - that's a big women's organization.
4:56 am
herinfernallady

I like that idea
5:00 am
herinfernallady

I am going to go Christine Take care ok
5:14 am
Deeha

Oh blow! Why is it only a small one when I am snowed in and have lots of time on my hands!!
5:24 am
roncook

Hi Christine, hopefully it willl be bright and sunny from mid March as we are coming to Ranch Mirage for a month of golf
5:25 am
Christine

Back again - goodbye Herinfernallady, and hello Deeha and roncook.
5:27 am
Deeha

Hi Christine - you probably guesss that us Brits complain about more than1 cm of snow and everything grinds to a halt but we did get about 8 inches last night
5:27 am
Scrabbler

Good morning Babblers. 18 F here and fresh snow, but not the amount that Washington, DC and surrounding areas received.
5:28 am
Deeha

One of our complaints is always 'if Anmerica gets it - it comes over here' so its all your faults!!
5:29 am
Christine

I'm a Londoner, and I tell people the reason I left home is that I saw a travel poster of sun and sand in So.Cal - and now we have this boomin' rain. We know we need it, just not all at once.
5:30 am
Scrabbler

Well, then, Deeha, there's a blizzard coming over.
5:30 am
Deeha

lol - what am I saying lol??!!
5:30 am
Deeha

Londoners should be used to rain!
5:32 am
Christine

But IU've been here for 49 years, so I'm probably more Angeleno than Londoner. My heart's still a Londoner - aaaaaw.
5:32 am
Deeha

Dont fret about it - 'fings aint wot they used to be'!
5:32 am
Christine

IU've -- what kinda word is that?
5:33 am
Christine

Love that song - reminds me of Tommy Steel. Did he sing it?
5:33 am
Deeha

Its an old London expression - I understood it!!
5:33 am
redturtlehead

Hey all!!! Scrabbs are you still here?
5:33 am
roncook

Hi Deeha, i`m back of walmer station,sydney road watching the birds in my garden searching for food i have left out
5:33 am
Scrabbler

Hi Red
5:34 am
Deeha

I have a horrible feeling it was Max Bygraves - but I sdaw the original show at Stratford (with Barbara Windsor would you believe)and his version was considerably cleaned up!
5:34 am
redturtlehead

Scrabbs, how are you? I am in great distress!
5:34 am
Scrabbler

Oh, no, Red, please tell me!
5:35 am
redturtlehead

my houseguest...decided in an experiement in not overplanning a trip... to come to the US with no ability to drive a car
5:35 am
Deeha

Hi Roncook how amazing I am in Reading Close-juat off Station Road.
5:35 am
redturtlehead

without making firm plans on where to stay for several of the weeks.
5:35 am
redturtlehead

SO now...he has not cash for a hotel...and is seemingly stuck with him, and I find him rather demanding and annoying.
5:35 am
Deeha

Obviously with you Red!!
5:36 am
redturtlehead

I;m got a small one bedroom apartment, and so far he has not cleaned anything, cooked anything and he even let the dog have an accident on the floor rather than walking him when I was not here!!!
5:37 am
Scrabbler

How rude of him! Give him a deadline by telling him that you will have another guest coming.
5:37 am
Deeha

That is the house guest from hell
5:37 am
Scrabbler

So he is not really a friend, as you have now learned.
5:37 am
redturtlehead

I just don't know what to do, I just sort of stared at him, and said, yo uknow, I had not planned on this, I can not believe you did this.
5:37 am
Scrabbler

And you will have to change the lock/key?
5:38 am
redturtlehead

Part of the trouble is that he is foreign, and I am know its hard for him, but this was very stupid.
5:38 am
Scrabbler

Good for you. Now give him 2-3 days to make plans to depart.
5:39 am
Christine

What a boor. Print out a list of hotels about 30 miles away, and send him on his way. Not a friend, even by the most lax definition.
5:39 am
redturtlehead

I am taking him to Jacksonville on Friday...And he will at least be gone for one week, but if he intends to just come back here for 2-3 more weeks I am going to scream. I don't get it.
5:40 am
redturtlehead

thank you all for listening to me, He is of course a friend on Facebook, so very hard to express myself there.
5:40 am
Deeha

No Red just be out when he calls back!!
5:40 am
redturtlehead

And now, I must depart to take the man to the Kennedy Space Center for the 4th freaking time.
5:40 am
redturtlehead

I hate hate the space center after this.
5:41 am
Christine

Rant away, honey - no way I'm gonna finish this bloomin' grid.
5:41 am
redturtlehead

Deeha I just can not do that to him, he is very far from home.
5:41 am
Deeha

You and me both Christine!!
5:41 am
redturtlehead

do you have the co funny guy? I just found it
5:42 am
Scrabbler

Good luck, Red!
5:42 am
redturtlehead

Ok I am leaving now, happy babbling all, My day will be spent looking at flipping airplanes and rockets.... all things do pass!!!
5:42 am
Deeha

No I hadnt Red thanks for that it was a long time since I added a word!!
5:43 am

Bye Red.

7:21 am
brandyjack

or facebooking or some other internet facility designed to let the whole world know exactly what they are doing. Like any of us care. Of course, we won't let them go out and kill themselves with snowball fights or dig snow tunnels in the drifts....

72 Temple Owl

kje i have an extra shovel...can one buy snow shovels where you are?
8:45 am
hego

Yes Drs do make lousy Pts.
8:45 am
kje

acyually, the snow is just enough to be pretty but not really closing roads... beats shoveling 2 feet as I did in MD
8:45 am
westford

pretty picture kje
8:45 am
hego

However, nurses make good ones.
8:45 am
kje

no, nurses make lousy ones too - LOLOL
8:46 am
kje

No, No. I've taken care of nurses. They were all great.
8:46 am

worse patient - a pregnant pediatrician... too much too worry about
8:47 am
hego

LOL
8:47 am
kje

actually - it all depends... I have had good and bad in all.. they are no different than the rest of the population
8:47 am
hego

We nurses at least pretend to follow orders. :-)
8:48 am
72 Temple Owl

my dr's pa urged me to come in right away monday to see another doctor only to hear i should keep doing what i am doing and sinus infections go away in three- four weeks .
8:48 am
kje

we are just less tolerant of the foibles in professionals sometimes
8:48 am
hego

Except, as you said know too much.
8:48 am
72 Temple Owl

apparently they don't treat them routinely any more. or she doesn't.
8:49 am
kje

hmmm... tell that to my research nurse who, despite being told not to, drove herself to the ED while having chest pain... then ended up admitted for stent placement... we almost killed her when we found out
8:49 am
hego

Taht's true TO
8:49 am
hego

Sounds tYpical.
8:49 am
kje

they sent you to a specialist for a sinus infection????
8:50 am
72 Temple Owl

well was not the last time i had one. and i told the pa what i had and what i was doing. he urged me to come in instead of waiting for reg doc later in week
8:50 am
hego

Don't want to make a fuss, you know.
8:51 am
kje

yes hego...that is her... no fuss... but if one of her patients did that she would of course have told them how foolish it was... we are all blind to our own stubborness
8:51 am
72 Temple Owl

so it cost me $ to hear i will get well eventually and i am doing everything right. although i don't generally take sudafed and taking it for a couple of weeks just sounds wrong.
8:51 am
hego

Sounds familiar.
8:51 am
kje

sudafed is safe for awhile TO, no worries
8:52 am
kje

heck, I am major dioped right now... have taken 2 zyrtec, a claritin and a sudafed (no comments from you hego)
8:52 am
72 Temple Owl

kje i had a cousin who took OTC cold meds for a while and developed liver issues. doc was mad at him.
8:52 am
kje

doped, not dioped
8:53 am
kje

maybe he was taking multiple meds with acetominophen and didn't realize he was overdosing
8:53 am
hego

;-)
8:53 am
72 Temple Owl

ty very much kje ofr the "consult" - i in sinuses hopefully not very contagious? dad has breathing issues and don't want to expose him. ty for clariying.
8:54 am
kje

on the other hand, I do know the upper limits of these meds so am careful... and notice, I am not driving... but my nose has stopped dripping!
8:57 am
kje

apparently no one is as excited about my nose as I am - LOL
8:58 am

9:01 am
SeaSpray

yes, daughters fiance was out for 5 days, he is a state trooper
9:02 am

9:03 am
kje

sea - I have a friend who went to st petersburg this week, she will be there for 6 months... they haul snow out of the city in dump trucks every day
9:04 am

9:07 am
SeaSpray

sorry phone, kje they will definitely be hauling snow for awhile here
9:08 am
hego

:-P
9:08 am
Deeha

And of course we dont expect snow in the winter so there are no snow ploughs or gritters
9:08 am
kje

it all depends on how much the city can handle... down here, it is about 2-3 inches then full shut down... in B-more, it was a foot, then they ground to a halt... when we had 2 feet one year, the snow plow buried my car
9:08 am
72 Temple Owl

whoo hooo welki
6:48 pm
Bugsaw

and wht too?
6:48 pm
jmcnrick

fgc hsa some nice ads from the outreach committee that you can place in a local paper: are you a quaker and don't know it
6:49 pm
redturtlehead

Actually jmc, I was thinking about calling the Orlando meeting and see if there wasn't something more local, sometimes people have things in thier homes...
6:49 pm
redturtlehead

wht, your parents were highly committed.
6:49 pm
jmcnrick

I sucked wht into the grid during a quaker board meeting bugs!
6:50 pm
jmcnrick

I went to a meeting in the GA sea islands red
6:50 pm
Bugsaw

I thot you did not have a worship service but spent time in contemplation. I would not have the discipline to drive that kind of distance to pray. I just set time aside each day
6:51 pm
wht

They claim they were driven to it when the preacher in the local church preached a sermon on the need to support the president during the Cuban Missle crisis.
6:51 pm
Bugsaw

perhaps you didn't "suck him in" as much as "invited him to join". It sounds more churchy
6:51 pm
redturtlehead

Being in a group meeting is a little different than contemplation alone. It has a way of evolving into it's own being.
6:51 pm
jmcnrick

lol no I think sucked him in was correct
6:52 pm
jmcnrick

he started reading over my shoulder
6:52 pm
jmcnrick

meeting for worship is different from praying alone bugs
6:52 pm
Bugsaw

and now wht says there is a sermon so I think I should think I should try it. I know I share the belief system
6:52 pm
redturtlehead

Nice wht! My Father got his Bachelors degree at Earlham and found it more to his liking that Methodism.
6:53 pm
redturtlehead

depends on the meeting Bugs, if you want a Sermon, you need to look for a "Programmed" meeting.
6:53 pm
jmcnrick

it is not th** we don't have a service it is more th** it is not planned out in advance
6:53 pm
Bugsaw

and now to address doing Babble in the middle of a board meeting jmc... I take it you are not as dedicated as you would like to be?
6:53 pm
jmcnrick

your dad is a quaker? how did th** not come up red?
6:53 pm
jmcnrick

i am quite as dedicated as I want to be! lol
6:54 pm
redturtlehead

Well, jmc, I believe he would tell you he is an Agnostic or something. I believe he is a rather private man about religion, but if pushed, he would be a Quaker.
6:54 pm

ah I can understand th**

well the protocol is to show up on time and wait and see what happens
7:03 pm

th** I can do!
7:03 pm

according to the press, Canada should get a lot of medals red but sometimes the pressure is just so much to do well for national pride that the tension gets to them. I just enjoy seeing some of the sports done well.

Taking It was one of the students I have issues with. If i could get away with rearranging her face I would.
7:57 pm
lbdawger

I personally think it's up to the teacher to "fix" that problem of bad mouthing students. I have had several cases in which I had to ask the offenders to remove themselves from my class, as I would not tolerate their rudeness.

The Cities have now announced Snow Emergency parking in effect til April 1. No parking on 1 side of the streets, and if it snows, we can't park on Snow Emergency routes until they are cleared curb to curb. It keeps the traffic moving (esp. if you can't find parking places!) ;-)

Hi NR
8:33 pm
nrkii

dug out two cars here in Lambertville, NJ today, and my injured shoulder is now reminding me that it is, in fact, an injured shoulder
8:33 pm
Nef

hi nrkii
8:33 pm
Nef

is your snow heavy?
8:33 pm
nrkii

it got heavier as the day went on
8:33 pm
Nef

herin, how much longer til you graduate?
8:33 pm
herinfernallady

NR you really shouldn't do that Hire a kid to do it. Gess
8:34 pm
nrkii

I dug out one car at 2, because I could see it was getting heavier, and the other at 6
8:34 pm
nrkii

the kids were all gone sledding
8:34 pm
nrkii

they don't need money any more -- that's what grandparents are for
8:34 pm
nrkii

I shouldnt have dug out the 2nd car -- was a neighbor, but I felt bad for her -- she hasn't been able to get to her car in 2 days
8:35 pm
herinfernallady

Well make them do it
8:35 pm
nrkii

oh, and the city guys dumped a TON of snow in the parking area behind my house... as in, on my property
8:35 pm
herinfernallady

Just started up this term one more year NEf
8:35 pm
nrkii

so I won't be parking there till July
8:36 pm
Nef

I've been very lucky this winter. Our heavy snow came after I had surgery, and my neighbor came and plowed our driveway each time it snowed since then. He's been working overtime this past week, so hasn't been able to keep up as well now.
8:36 pm
nrkii

I just did it as a surprise for her... she brought me dinner earlier in the week for no special reason... it's that kind of neighborhood
8:36 pm
herinfernallady

THat was nice of them. NR did they get permission to do this or is it one of those''it's an emergancy situtation shut up and put up''?
8:37 pm
Nef

Is that legal, nrkii? They can't do that here!
8:37 pm
nrkii

apparently they got permission from my neighbors, so I'm not really mad about it... I hardly ever park back there, and I had told my neighbors I was going to park in a nearby lot
8:37 pm
nrkii

I just had to laugh about it... at least 6 foot high wall of snow... it will take forever for that to melt
8:38 pm
herinfernallady

I would make an igloo out of it
8:38 pm
nrkii

I parked in the lot because I thought they'd plow me out quicker there... WRONG... way too much snow for them to keep up
8:38 pm
nrkii

igloo's a good idea, maybe I'll convince the neighbor kids to do that
8:38 pm
nrkii

might as well enjoy it
8:39 pm
herinfernallady

Depends or not is the snow safe and cleanish to play with?
8:40 pm
Nef

I'm going to go build an igloo for my neighbor boy tomorrow if my coughing is gone. I've coughed so hard this week that my chest wall hurts (the cold aggravates the cough)
8:40 pm
herinfernallady

:( Don't go out NEf
8:41 pm
Nef

herin, DH has cabin fever now; so it's easier to build a snow fort than drive him here and there chasing down stuff he thinks he needs.
8:41 pm
ADHDWordLover

the best way to build an igloo is in a fence corner. pack and pack high, then pour water on top of the entire thing and leave till the next day to carve. my dad and his friend used to build them for us and ours was the only one left standing in the neighborhood

My little neighbor boy is going to be 3 next month. He calls me Gramma and loves having me play with him. Once last summer he came over and asked me to come out and play (he's slipped away from his parents in less than a minute!) So we put a yellow nylon rope out in the driveway and told him he couldn't cross the yellow line; and he didn't cross it for the rest of the summer (of course, "Gramma" door was on the *right* side of the line!

This little boys' parents are from Iran, his dad has been a citizen and lived here 22 years; his Mom has been here 4 years and she just passed her citizenship test!

don't even know. i was told that the first time i ever had (at 17) at my parents friends picnic
9:47 pm

i think the brain is like the "mustard" of a crab, mostly non edible or not very tasty.

ADHD, remember the cajun saying "i suck the heads" (crawfish)

You are better getting the meaty tail than pising about with the body unless you are up for disection. Are they live lobsters?

The edible parts of the lobster are the tail, the legs and the claws. The roe and the green tomalley found in its body are also edible. The flesh of the lobster accounts for only 30% of its total weight.

I should be tired out by now, but I'm not after having 'fasting' blood samples taken early yesterday morning. It was only about 30ml of blood in the 3 tubes, my daughter later informed me (well, that's 3 bloodless fingers at the very least!) Whatever, even after coming home, having tea and toast I felt so drained I went to bed and slept for 2 and a half hours. I'm only 5' 1" and a twiddle tall. 30ml is a lot to me. LOL

Jac, here in the US our "big" blood tubes hold between 5 and 7 mls; so they wouldn't take too much from you. I take it you don't ever donate blood? (That bag they take is about 500 ml)

Nef - my Other Half is a Silver donor now. It's a pint at a time + about 20ml of test blood beforehand. He's 6' 2", big built and he's exhausted afterwards.
10:16 pm
ADHDWordLover

i'm in the midst of all kinds of testing and last month they took 14 vials. i was told the record is 19. only a few were the tiny ones. they kept me forever
10:17 pm
ADHDWordLover

been living at the lab for months...i think they're stashing and selling it to the nightdwellers
10:17 pm
Jacula

Herin - I have naturally low blood pressure, which is one of the reasons I am not a blood donor, despite having a blood group only 8% of the population have. (A Positive)
10:17 pm
Jacula

A Negative, I meant. LOL
10:18 pm
Nef

DH and I donate about 4-5 times/year. Sometimes he donates double bags. As a nurse, I gave tons of blood when I worked in ICU. (I wasn't allowed to donate then, too many blood exposure risks they said). We used to weigh each unit we gave
10:19 pm
Nef

DH is A neg; I'm A pos
10:19 pm
ADHDWordLover

yep 4'10" short. her nickname is "little"
10:19 pm
Jacula

ADHD - 'a twiddle' in height measurement is, as far as I'm concerned, not enough to measure or worry about to make it to the next quarter or half inch of height.
10:19 pm
ADHDWordLover

then i guess i'm just a plain old 5-1
10:21 pm
ADHDWordLover

i come from a long line of munchkins... the tallest guy 5-7, tallest gal 5 feet. my dad's mom was under 5 feet, but i heard she was a powerful little thing. she was a court interpreter, spoke 7 languages and also sang opera. she died when my dad was 9
10:21 pm
herinfernallady

Dang Jac you really could be handy in that department if you didn't faint after giving blood
10:21 pm
Jacula

Nef - when I was pregnant with my first child, the doc, realising my blood group, immediately asked my hubby to come in to have his blood tested. Amazingly, he was also A Neg, as was his mother.
10:22 pm
ADHDWordLover

boy if taking blood took off pounds i'd weigh about 3 pounds by now
10:22 pm
Jacula

My new partner has the most useful blood of all. Can't remember what group it is but it can be given to everyone.
10:22 pm
ADHDWordLover

wow, talk about compatability
10:22 pm
herinfernallady

O positive
10:23 pm

We may be small ADHD, but good things come in small packages. However, it's bloody annoying in the supermarket if you can't find either something to stand on, something long to bat the things off the back of the top shelf towards you, or a tall person to reach them for you.
10:26 pm
Nef

Something interesting that we noticed in our ICU is that a majority of the people who needed blood were A pos or O pos. When I commented about that to a doc, he said that out on the east coast where he was from (Delaware or Conneticutt, I thnk) the majority were B pos!
10:26 pm
Jacula

(If you ever buy a pack of long dried spaghetti that's a bit broken, it's probably one I've used to reach things off top shelves.) *grins*
10:32 pm
herinfernallady

can someone bath me and do my house work OR at least push me in the direction of the shower
10:32 pm
herinfernallady

Jac my friend is 6'10 he is handy to go shopping with
10:33 pm
Jacula

Nef - so blood groups are area-related then? Probably due to family groups sticking around? Or maybe even compatible blood group types being attracted to one and other? That last comment is not so daft as it sounds if you look at blood type research - food preferences, personality types etc.
10:33 pm
Jacula

Herin - he sounds very handy to shop with. What dates is he available? LOL
10:34 pm
herinfernallady

Err not until March 20th
10:35 pm
Jacula

But I need to go to the supermarket a few times before then! *sighs*
10:35 pm
Nef

Jac, I think the difference might be related to ethnicity too. A lot of Native Americans are type B; this area of the US is settled with a lot of Scandinavians while you don't find as many Scandinavians in Deleaware
10:35 pm
ADHDWordLover

interesting Nef... just got back, reading doc's comments.. i'm in CT
10:36 pm
Nef

What is the most common ethnic group out there, ADHD?
10:36 pm
ADHDWordLover

my first grand ... ABO incompatibility... it was so scary for a week, so close to blood exchange
10:37 pm
herinfernallady

So do I jac and I need his hugs
10:37 pm
Nef

So the mom was rh neg and baby was rh pos? Makes me wonder how they missed that
10:38 pm
Jacula

Nef - that, too. Blood's fascinating but complicated. My Mum's A Positive, I think my Dad was O positive (he was a gold blood donor, I remember). I asked my GP wher I got my negative from, he said 'don't ask, it's complicated', I then questioned my Mum, who got most upset at the implications and so I stopped asking.
10:39 pm
herinfernallady

AHD I have my RH factor on my blood card. The hospital did that when type matching my blood
10:39 pm
ADHDWordLover

i'm short Jac, but i've never "felt" small. by the time i graduated high school i was topping 200 lbs. ten yrs later i lost 80lbs, size 6-8 in winter, 4-6 in summer, very heavily muscled and still feel like a porkchop. everyone says i'm small...
10:39 pm
ADHDWordLover

u have kids herin?
10:39 pm
Nef

I was surprised to learn that DH as an A neg and myself being A pos could actually have a child that is O (either + or_)!
10:40 pm
Jacula

Me and my ex both have A Neg blood but on our green cards the + and - thingeys differ.
10:41 pm
herinfernallady

Nope Adhd they had to do a ''what type of blood is in you'' so they also checked teh RH factor which is important in females apparently
10:41 pm
ADHDWordLover

that'd drive me nuts jac... but i have to know everything
10:41 pm
Jacula

ADHD - 'they' don't look at your width, since they only see you from above.
10:42 pm
ADHDWordLover

i almost woke hubs up laffing jac
10:42 pm
Nef

I remember we had a young man waiting for a heart transplant and he had had several heart surgeries in his short life. He had very unusual blood antibodies and there were 59 antibodies in his blood that weren't compatible with the blood units we could get. He never did get his transplant. :-(
10:42 pm
ADHDWordLover

when i was in school some mean kids called me a stump. it's actually funny sounding to me now
10:43 pm
herinfernallady

I was always a giant in school
10:43 pm
herinfernallady

that is sad Nef
10:43 pm
Jacula

ADHD - I did go back to my GP and question him further. He apologised for his off the cuff comment and said he'd meant no harm - it's just that the blood heredity thing was one thing he'd never got to grips with at med school.
10:44 pm
Nef

I know. I'll never forget him. He had such great potential....
10:44 pm
ADHDWordLover

so sad nef. i've used autologous blood for surgeries cuz i'm a bleeder (platelet function problem)
10:45 pm
ADHDWordLover

does he have the God complex? he can't be wrong about anything or let it be known that he doesn't know EVERYthing?
10:45 pm
herinfernallady

back soon carpet and I are both kind of needing a clean
10:45 pm
Nef

ADHD, I hope you don't take aspirin or any of the NSAIDS (Ibuprofen -type products) then!
10:45 pm
ADHDWordLover

and then there was my hubs' childhood friend who got a transplant and drank himself to death
10:46 pm
Nef

Now that is sad!
10:47 pm
Jacula

Herin - the giant remark sounds just like my stepdaughter. Thing is, she's not unnaturally tall around here, like she was in her home county. But she still seems to seek out tiny friends. One is so small that when she rang our doorbell one morning, I answered the door and thought no one was there for a moment, until I looked down. I'm not accustomed to speaking to people smaller than me, unless they somewhere from 2-9 years' old.
10:47 pm
ADHDWordLover

noooooo i got a stomach bleed from NSAIDS; haven't taken them in 13 years; no ASA. i've always been a bleeder hemmorhaged w/ cycle, deliveries, died in one 8 1/2hr back surgery from blood (first two transfusions)
10:47 pm
ADHDWordLover

that was scary... it was 1982 and AIDS was new and blood screening wasn't done yet
10:49 pm
ADHDWordLover

missed the giant remark
10:49 pm
ADHDWordLover

my sisters are all tall 5-2 and 3
10:50 pm
ADHDWordLover

how old is your stepdaughter jac?
10:50 pm
Jacula

Hey! ADHD has just said I'm TALL!
10:50 pm
Nef

Aspirin and NSAIDS interfere with clotting (which is a platelet function). However you already know that, right
10:50 pm
Jacula

She was 15 in December, ADHD,
10:50 pm
ADHDWordLover

yep...
10:51 pm
ADHDWordLover

even tho i was forced to give up nursing, i don't forget a thing! i'm like an elephant (but not as big as one... anymore)
10:51 pm
ADHDWordLover

dang i'm outa sudafed
10:52 pm
Jacula

Don't like Sudofed - it makes me feel space out.
10:52 pm
ADHDWordLover

i just got a new rheumatologist and he told me Plaquenil can thin your blood!!! Now why was I never told... been on the stuff for almost four years and a slew of MDs never mentioned it. don't think they knew
10:52 pm
Nef

I suddenly remembered that from the other night
10:53 pm
Jacula

ADHD - do you watch the series 'Nurse Jackie' on TV?
10:53 pm
ADHDWordLover

me either jac, but my sinuses are so packed
10:53 pm
Nef

I don't know how many times I've told people to read their med inserts! Docs don't know everything
10:53 pm
ADHDWordLover

funny you should ask. i'd never heard of nurse jackie till my dtr-in-law mentioned it last week. so home sick i watched the entire first season On Demand.
10:55 pm
jillibus

hello all
10:55 pm
Jacula

My eustachian tubes are still blocked and doc's given me a sinus spray rather than a rd term of antibiotics to sort it out. I haven't thought to mention to him about having a cat in the house. Our second full-time cat now, after having a dog. I haven't had a clear nose since our now deceased first cat moved it. I think I may have a cat allergy.
10:55 pm
Jacula

Hi jilli.
10:56 pm
ADHDWordLover

i didn't want to read it nef so I could see how well or not so well the drug would/wouldn't work. but the pharmacist never said anything either. this doctor is brilliant tho.. the first visit i met an elderly guy in the waiting room who'd just finished his appt; he was praising this new MD. I asked who? the one I was to see. and the elderly guy is a retired prof of medicine from Yale and apparently well known
10:56 pm
Nef

hi jilli. How are you tonight?
10:56 pm
ADHDWordLover

could be jac
10:56 pm
ADHDWordLover

do you like nurse jackie?
10:56 pm
jillibus

I've been reading back a bit -- just wanted to tell ADHD I'd been on plaquenil for 15 years but had to stop because it was affecting my eyes --a very rare occurrence called plaquenil toxicity.
10:57 pm
Jacula

I do, ADHD. I don't like that she's cheating on hur husband and her kids, or her lover, but I think she's good at heart.
10:57 pm
ADHDWordLover

i know all about it jilli. but i guess once you stop taking it the eye problem resolves and can take up to 2 years to do so. true?
10:57 pm
ADHDWordLover

good heart, but a danger to patients... THAT is disturbing to me
10:58 pm
jillibus

ADHD, I never noticed anything wrong but my ophthalmologist did.
10:58 pm
ADHDWordLover

we're discussing treatment now. maybe get some pain reliev
10:58 pm
ADHDWordLover

i go to the opthamologist every six months for testing
10:58 pm
Nef

It sounds like just another soap opera based in a hospital to me
10:59 pm
jillibus

Hi nef -- I'm just fine -- feeling great, 18 lbs lighter than I was
10:59 pm
ADHDWordLover

yeah.... she should be fired.
11:00 pm
ADHDWordLover

what do you take Plaquenil for jilli?
11:00 pm
jillibus

I can't get Nurse Jackie here but love Edie Falco's acting.
11:01 pm
Nef

Are you feeling better with that weight gone, jilli?
11:01 pm
Jacula

ADHD - re Nurse Jackie, yes, she could be a danger to patients if her drug dependency takes over. (I'm only one series 1 here in UK). I guess she's a normal fragile human being doing her best to cope re life and death and problems with one of her daughters. I still don't see why she turns to the hospital pharmacist rather than her hubby for sexual comfort. Maybe that will become apparent in 2nd series?
11:01 pm
Nef

Could someone clue that at7 for me? I can't find it for anything tonight
11:02 pm
jillibus

I DID take plaquenil for rheumatoid arthritis and it worked beautifully. I'm now on methotrexate and that's doing fine but it's a drag having to have a blood test every 4 weeks.
11:02 pm
Jacula

jilli - I noticed someone else with the surname 'Falco' in the credits. Is it Edie's sister?
11:03 pm
jillibus

Nef, as I said, I'm feeling great with that weight gone.
11:03 pm
ursh

hello all - Nef a magnet will at----- metal
11:03 pm
jillibus

No idea, jac
11:03 pm
ADHDWordLover

she's not turning to the pharmacist for sex comfort... i think it's sex for drugs
11:03 pm
jillibus

also, nef, BP is down to a comfortable level.
11:04 pm
ADHDWordLover

i don't know what treatment is next, but gotta do something. can't take much more pain.
11:04 pm
Nef

I'm glad to hear that jilli. I mis-read your previous comment, thinking that the first part wasn't related to the 2nd part.
11:04 pm
ADHDWordLover

have you been on remicade jilli
11:04 pm
Nef

Thnaks Ursh!
11:04 pm
Jacula

ADHD - actually, thinking about it, you have a point about sex for drugs, But she does orgasm with him, unless she was acting just before her trainee walked in on them?
11:05 pm
jillibus

no, ADHD -- I think I've been lucky in that I have a mild case which was nipped in the bud early by plaquenil
11:05 pm
ADHDWordLover

well, doesn't mean she won't enjoy it just cuz she's doing it for drugs.. ya think?
11:06 pm
Jacula

Maybe, ADHD.
11:06 pm
jillibus

have you been on remicade, ADHD? And do you have RA?
11:06 pm
ADHDWordLover

RA w/sjogrens.
11:06 pm
jillibus

oh yuk, ADHD!
11:07 pm
Nef

Not a good combo, ADHD
11:08 pm
ADHDWordLover

never on remicade. last sept's scans: advanced and severe... my spinal fusions disintegrated and my spine collapsed in my neck and low back and have osteoporosis of spine. i know nef. it's destroyed my teeth, i have mouth moisture paste, nose spray, eye drops (a bottle a day).... sucks
11:09 pm
Jacula

Well, obviously she WAS acting, since she's an actress and the show is fiction. LOL But you take my point? In my experience, sex with anyone other than one you love is not worth having. Having said that, the fictional character of Nurse Jackie didn't feel so high or sleepy and comfortable did she?
11:09 pm
ADHDWordLover

everything hit me at once. and i swear it's from a bad case of lyme disease
11:10 pm
ADHDWordLover

but, having worked with addicts (in a facility), they'll do anything for drugs. Jackie's behaviour is portrayed accurately
11:11 pm
Jacula

I've been bitten by sheep tics many times in my past life on a Welsh farm. I guess I was lucky the ticks didn't carry Lyme's disease, or else I was immune to it.
11:11 pm
ADHDWordLover

she is high tho... subtle clues... things that you wouldn't know unless you've seen it for real
11:12 pm
Jacula

ADHD - I can cofidently take your word for that as a writer.
11:13 pm
ADHDWordLover

lyme disease sucks. i had the giant bullseye rash on my back and didn't see it. my hubs noticed it one nite a week after i got it (i got it from lying on my back, naked, in the woods.... get my drift); and every symptom except bell's palsy
11:13 pm
Jacula

Not many 'subtle clues' pass any writer by on TV or in print. Have to learn to button your lip during murder mysteries.
11:14 pm
Jacula

ADHD - pity the passion ended with pain.
11:14 pm
ADHDWordLover

i'm not a writer, but i notice details and have good recall (a judge told me i'd make a great attorney lol)
11:15 pm
Jacula

You probably would, ADHD.
11:15 pm
ADHDWordLover

too true jac. but others have had it much worse. i got it later in life... i met a 17 yr old so crippled... already 2 hip replacements
11:15 pm
ADHDWordLover

there's a fine line between passion and pain
11:16 pm
Nef

ADHD, didn't you get treated for the Lymes after you knew of the rash? My son came home from Boy Scout camp 2 summers in a row with the bulls eye rash. Both times he was put on month long antibiotic treatment and he never had a problem after
11:16 pm
Jacula

You must be a hell of a pain to argue with! Remind me never to attempt it. It would be like trying to attempt total recall when your 20+ aged kids try to tell you what you said to them when they were 10 years younger.
11:18 pm
ADHDWordLover

lol... which is why I always win. my kids know not to test my memory. so funny to said that about the kids. i keep telling them that their kids will do the same to them!
11:19 pm
Jacula

My Other Half's about to be summoned to wakefulness by the alarm clock soon. I'm about tired enough to go to bed now. We've got a stepdaughter (his daughter) free week from tomorrow night.
11:20 pm

I'm going to wander off now and try to get my pillow and my half of the duvet back whilst pinching his body heat before he gets out of bed.
11:20 pm
Jacula

Happy Babbling all.x
11:21 pm
ADHDWordLover

i got the tick bite before much was known about lyme. i went to a walkin (cuz i didn't have a GP cuz i never got sick) a blood test was done and I was started on doxycycline (Friday) they said to call back on Tues (Mon. was memorial day) When I called: "the test was neg. stop the abx" so I did. then i ended up with a heart block, meningitis, encephalitis, the worst nystagmus ever, nuchal rigidity (from the meningitis), spinal headache... everything but the bell's palsy. by that time it was disseminated lyme and i was put on IV rocephin. at the time ins. co. only approved three weeks; the ID dr. got 7 1/2 weeks for me, but it wasn't enough. NOW you stay on it till you're assymtomatic.
11:22 pm
ADHDWordLover

my immunity sucks now, which is why i catch EVERYTHING that comes my way. my hands are raw from washing.
11:24 pm
ADHDWordLover

i lecture moms on lyme prevention... white socks pulled up to the knees, white sneaks. spray the shoes and socks with deet (not skin of course on kids) and do tick checks. it takes 72 hours to get infected, then after they've done their thing (suck your blood, mix it with their poison, then regurgitate it back into you) they leave you and move on to the next victim.
11:25 pm
ADHDWordLover

so here i sit with rheumatoid, osteo and lyme arthritis. oh joy. screw the golden years my aunt used to say.
11:28 pm
jillibus

your ins co dictated your treatment? We don't have problems like that in Canada with our health care system, about which so many lies have been told.
11:29 pm
Nef

that's totally the pits. My son got Lyme disease when he was 11 and 12, so that was 18 years ago
11:30 pm
ADHDWordLover

oh yeah... and one of my doctors who is a patient advocate told me of a meeting with ins. co. ceos who said "we don't care about your patients, we care about our stockholders" pathetic that those who decide our treatment aren't even doctors

Some DO have to wait for hip replacements and such, unfortunately, but those in greatest need get them asap, and urgent surgeries are done quicly.

ah -- our premium doesn't cover glasses or dental. Private insurance can be bought for those, or they can be covered by employers. So those greedy US insurance companies don't need to worry about going broke if you got universal single payer health care.

in BC we also pay something toward medications, but part of the cost is usually paid by Pharmacare, unless the meds are considered experimental.
