Hello hurshy

hello ruby

it also seems to be harder than yesterday's small one

Are we being punished?

idk

Hi kids.
5:12 am
rubyfoo

I missed all the drama in the chog yesterday but it was accompanied by a wild rainsttorm here. The most lightning I've ever seen but very little thunder and it lastted for hours.
5:13 am
rubyfoo

hello scrabs
5:13 am
Scrabbler

Happy Birthday, hurshy. You were born on the same date as a friend of mine.
5:13 am
Scrabbler

Oh, what drama now?
5:13 am
rubyfoo

I spent most of the time huddled on the floor with my scared pups
5:14 am
rubyfoo

Happy Birthday, Hurshy, you will always be younger!
5:14 am
hurshy

thanks

rubyfoo

There was evidently a big political argumentt but I only caught the barest fringes.
5:15 am

Some of the babblers went "la la la..." but it would be simpler to turn off the chat if somebody find controversy annoying

Personally, I think it's fun to share differing points of view but >I wasn't involved in this one
5:17 am
Scrabbler

No one is going to change their mind.
5:17 am
rubyfoo

but it's fun to listen and discuss
5:18 am
rubyfoo

no name-calling, of course, but we're all adults here (at least I hope so┬░) and you can't expect homogeniety (no idea of the spelling!)
5:19 am
Scrabbler

It never works in this chat.
5:19 am
rubyfoo

I have friends across both aisles and the whole religious Spectrum and I prefer that
5:20 am

Talking face to face works better.

ruby. we arrived home last thursday. have driven to QLD. took us 3 days. caught up with lizlin and her hubby who were very generous with their time, car and knowledge. we have had an amazing holiday.
5:26 am
Scrabbler

Wonderful, granny.
5:26 am
rubyfoo

Evidently there was name-calling
5:27 am
Scrabbler

Too bad. People are entitled to their opinions.
5:27 am
rubyfoo

That is lovely, rosie, sounds like a perfect Holiday. Does riding in the car tire you out?
5:28 am
grannyrose

very much so ruby. suffice to say, the night we arrived home i slept 8 hours without moving.
5:28 am
rubyfoo

I enjoy hearing other people's views.
5:29 am
hurshy

i have co7, anyone have the other 7?
5:29 am
grannyrose

un7. mythical creature
5:29 am
rubyfoo

I expect their views to be divergent from mine, but that's often the appeal.
5:29 am
hurshy

oh nice! thanks
5:30 am
rubyfoo

there's one in my garden -- I wish!
5:30 am

Hi matty and atalante!
5:35 am
rubyfoo

and I am very happy to see Atalante!! Anybody who disagres can just step outside....
5:35 am

atalante, too true. we must remember everyone is entitled to their own viewpoint, even when it does not agree with theirs.
5:35 am

Good morning all
5:35 am

Ilike to ask kids in my office
5:35 am

Hello smart Matty; you got my reference
5:35 am
Atalante

happy birthday smurshy!
5:36 am
rubyfoo

How are you, Ata?
5:36 am
mattygroves

Indeed - happy birthday!
5:36 am
grannyrose

i always say... i may not agree with what you say/think, but i will fight for your right to say/think whatever you do.
5:36 am
Atalante

yes exactly :)
5:36 am
grannyrose

and good morning matty
5:37 am
rubyfoo

And it's certainly possible to have friends with whom you disagree. It makes for lively dinner parties!
5:37 am
Atalante

its all fine till someone wants to vote for trump :P *runs*

mattygroves

Babble chog is unusual compared to most social media. Often (and there are no doubt exceptions), people have friends or contacts on Facebook and twitter of people who broadly share their worldview. Mine is, for example, left of centre - and that is true of many of my friends - therefore I tend to see stories and articles that largely agree with my worldview.
5:38 am
grannyrose

lolll ruby. my darling departed friend, robyn, taught me that.
5:38 am
Scrabbler

I like to ask kids in my office about their favorite animal at the zoo and one girl said the un7.I told her it was my favorite too.
5:38 am
mattygroves

However, on here, we are a diverse group (probably slightly weighted to women of a certain age - I include myself in that) - we don't filter by those who largely agree with us. We can easily forget that there are intelligent people with entirely different views, and so think 'how can they possibly think that?! They must be thick or ignorant or misguided'. It is confirmation bias.
5:39 am
rubyfoo

Exactly, Ata, but, in the end, that, too, can be amusing
5:39 am
grannyrose

i had to teach my hubby that it was okay to not agree. it did not mean i loved him any less.
5:39 am
rubyfoo

I think I'm much further left than most of my friends
5:40 am
rubyfoo

but it's not a problem
5:40 am
mattygroves

I think many of us, Ruby, who have emigrated, tend to be further left than people who have stayed in their country of origin. A huge generalisation of course, but an observation.
5:40 am
mattygroves

So can anyone tell me anything about the CO7?
5:41 am
Atalante

good for bad headaches
5:41 am
Alleyn58

Morning all - a hint or the co7 would be appreciated x
5:41 am
Atalante

or back pain or any other pain
5:41 am
rubyfoo

You're probably right (LOL) but, on the other hand, it's harder to be opinionated about an adopted country
5:41 am
grannyrose

co7, add a vowel to the co6, pain killer
5:41 am
mattygroves

That's the one, once I got the spelling right. Thanks
5:42 am
grannyrose

mind you, co7 is how we spell it here.
5:42 am
rubyfoo

I didn't know there were two spellings
5:43 am
grannyrose

my body hates co7. it metabolises too quickly to morphine and i end up as high as a kite....loll
5:43 am
mattygroves

My spelling is entertaining at times
5:43 am
Alleyn58

Thx so much
5:43 am
mattygroves

It can also make one terribly constipated!
5:43 am
rubyfoo

"I before e...." except when you have a backache
5:43 am
Scrabbler

My body does not like any narcotics--I get so dopey and dizzy.
5:43 am

that too matty.

The weird foreigner seized neither leisure nor science at their heights.
5:44 am

5:45 am

Imagine, Matty, that I take 40 mg of morphine on an average day!
5:45 am
Atalante

my sister gets take a whole bottle of liquid morphine each day. but it is a small bottle
5:46 am
grannyrose

when i had the denervation on my right knee, anaesthetist gave me ketamine and propofol. i was so out of it. the nurse kept saying..rose open your eyes...and i was thi8nking...nope not gonna do that.
5:46 am
rubyfoo

I love narcotics!! I couldn't deal with my cancer oterwise. I guess I am Lucky because oxy works and there are days when I can take less and have few side effects except what Matty said
5:47 am
Atalante

whats a denervation?
5:47 am
rubyfoo

I take enough to Knock out a big man, but it doesn't even make me sleepy; I'm just afraid to drive
5:47 am
grannyrose

the doc sends anh electric shock down a needle embedded in the nerve and kills it.
5:48 am
grannyrose

the nerve that is...
5:48 am
Scrabbler

I cannot understand why some people get addicted to opiates but that is because my brain reacts so differently to them.
5:49 am
Atalante

wow. I need that one of my knees, it's been hypersensitive to everything since an operation as a kid
5:49 am
grannyrose

ata, when the doc zapped the most troublesome part of the nerve, unconscious as i was i still tried to crawl off the operating table. it took three of them to keep me on the table.
5:50 am
rubyfoo

I can't imagine that addiction because opiates certainly aren't fun
5:50 am
Atalante

ouch ouch ouch
5:50 am
rubyfoo

double ouch ((rosie))
5:50 am
grannyrose

okay, ata, you need to find an an aenesthetist who is now specialising in pain management.
5:51 am
Atalante

I can see how it happens, one of my friends is an ex coastie and the VA gave him insane amounts of vicodin to manage his pain and then just didn't stop giving them to him ...
5:51 am
Atalante

I will look, rose! I had no idea that could be done
5:51 am
grannyrose

that is soooo wrong, ata.
5:51 am
rubyfoo

can he function normally?
5:52 am
Atalante

he can now he's gone to rehab! but he literally can't take pain killers as it's too tempting to take more
5:52 am
mattygroves

Typically, people who take opiates just for pain relief are less likely to become addicted - as long as it's used for genuine pain
5:53 am
rubyfoo

I take as much as I need to manage the pain, but the side effects keep e from exceeding the dose
5:54 am
grannyrose

matty...my theory is that if you have strong enough pain, your body utilises all the pain killer... and there is no addiction.
5:54 am
rubyfoo

My son thinks I'm an addict, but I explined to hi what Matty said. He refused to believe me, thought I should be stoic
5:55 am
grannyrose

oh for goodnhess sake, ruby. tell him to wake up and smell the roses.
5:55 am
rubyfoo

Happily, the oncologists here agree with me
5:56 am
Atalante

there's a difference between physically addicted to something, and choosing to be psychologically / phsyically addicted to something If you take a certain medication for years, of course your body will expect that chemical input
5:57 am
grannyrose

nearly my meds time... please believe me...i love you all... but the meds leave me off the planet.
5:57 am
rubyfoo

>I don't see many choices as I need to function well to run the house, can't just curl up in a balland sleep (although the temptation is surely there)

REST it as much as possible. PROP up whenever you are not on your feet. ICE it as often as possible. If you have access to a JOBST pump, use it at night when you're in bed.

8:56 am

Yes, laced straps, then bilateral straps, then top velcro straps. It is very supportive.

I would continue to ice at the end of every day.

Ruru, I am being impatient with the healing process,which is expected since I am an active person. Limping around in pain is not easy.

You're an active person and a doctor....the worst patients ever!!!!! :p

Aw scrabs that sounds awful! I'm sure that extra 3 miles you had to hike on that ankle wasn't good :(
9:17 am
lil*monkey

I'm actually a licensed phys therapist assistant
9:18 am
lil*monkey

I don't do the initial evaluation of patients, that's for the DPTs (doctorate of physical therapy) to handle. But I do all the treatments and manage their care.
9:19 am
Scrabbler

It was so painful coming down that mtn, wondering if my ankle was fractured. I went to an urgent care ctr and the X-rays were negative.
9:19 am
lil*monkey

I'm sure you've heard scrabs, that sprains are much more painful than Fx or breaks.
9:20 am

sprains involve injury or avulsion to the ligaments

well heck, if i'd known i'd have asked for your advice a long time ago! monkey, i've been going to PT for months for a shoulder injury - off for a cortisone injection on tuesday.

monkey, do your PTs do dry needling in the states? my daughter, a nurse in vermont, had never heard of it
9:40 am
lil*monkey

Yes, they do. You have to complete a lengthy educational course first.
9:40 am
lil*monkey

It's called "dry needling" but is very similar to acupuncture.
9:41 am

dry needling is what I do here every day
9:42 am

isn't that what "Cross-stitch is?
9:42 am
welki

yes, ru - i was waiting for that :)

well, acupuncture is relatively painless. not so for dry needling - it can be VERY painful
9:43 am
lil*monkey

dry needling is also called trigger-point needling. Yes it's painful. The object is to insert needle into the trigger point. Ouch!
9:43 am
rururocks

not for me.. I don't like needles
9:43 am

sometimes when my family needled me it was painful
9:44 am

i don't either, but i was hoping it would give my shoulder some relief - and sometimes it did, sometimes not
9:45 am
lil*monkey

welki, have you tried electrical stimulation? Certain types are very soothing. The program called "interferential" is excellent for calming pain.
9:46 am

hey ru - the apoquel seems to have kicked in. thank you so much for the advice. and guess what - i heard a commercial for it on the radio the other day - you've started a movement up north!

ummm now that I think about it, it was oxy that made me throw up -- they gave me prednisone when I threw out my back trying to pick up a tree that had fallen in my backyard -- asked if ok to go to work -- I did but my coworkers sent me home 'cause I couldn't stop laughing uncontrollably! :-)

10:03 am

I'm sure the guy appreciated it, Une. Yes, Ruru, changes in moods and emotions (particularly depression) are common on prednisone. In my case, where I normally manage depression just fine, it took a toll. It felt like a thick, black undertow. Ick. I was grateful to be done with it.

So... not by way of apology, but just as a small indication of how today went for me... Up at 7.00 am. Washing into the machine. One and a half hour drive to Dublin to see Mom. One hour there. Picked up laundry to be seen to. One hours drive to see my Dad, who is worried and concerned about my Mom. An hour with him. Picked up his laundry. An unhappy two hours with my Dad. Moaning and groaning that he has been abandoned and nobody visits him anymore. (I was there with him on Thursday). Two more hours crossing the city to go back to my Mom. Meds disagreeing wiht her, resulting in dire vomiting and nausea. Very intense times indeed

Doing fine (except in the grid). The weather was nice today, just a bit humid; so I got a little bit done outside (not much, but some stuff). I have 9 tomato plants & almost got them fenced in enough to keep the squirrels out (I hope)

I didn't plant much this year. Usually I have a HUGE vegetable garden. Just tomatoes this year :-)

We planted everything else except tomatoes in raised planters like big old garden box planters. DH kept bending down too far & wrecking his back (he's had 2 neck spine surgeries & 2 lumbar spine surgeries & he really can't bend with all that rods & screws in there; but he still kept trying!)

with the hills all around we have lots of cross country skiing and several downhill ski areas - the one ski area has the greatest vertical drop east of the Mississippi

I can grow lettuce and kale and carrot in the winter. I do the others in the summer.

For some reason, we keep trying & trying to grow carrots, but our carrots end up being 2 -3 inches long & maybe as thick as our thumbs. They taste wonderful but just won't grow long!

Winter veggies: cabbage, lettuce, root veggies, chard, broccoli, brussels sprouts, collard greens. Lots of good stuff.

WV, saying that, here in MN we have some great ski areas, but our slopes are short. People from other areas caught when we say that, but a lot of Olympic skiers are either from here or come here to practice

ch112 ... you can visit your local cooperative extension office website and find a list of veggies to grow in the winter. Your climate is mild enough. I work for CE so am an advocate :-)

Gosh, I should have known that. One of my neighbors teaches classes for the county CE. Thanks!
9:03 pm

With our shorter runs, they actually can end up with more actual skiing because they aren't waiting in long lines to get back to the top of the hills again.

great idea, origami. Extension offices are very helpful too. (I should find out why my carrots are always so short

stopping itchy skin is as simple as keeping air off it, so, a layer of soap would work great, at least till it flakes off
9:51 pm

9:52 pm

what is green clay powder?
9:52 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

an "emergency" editor. the publisher buys a manuscript, then realizes it's unpublishable but they have already contracted to publish it. call in the book doctor to fix it in a hurry
9:52 pm

9:52 pm

9:52 pm

9:52 pm
Nef

Why would it be unpublishable?
9:53 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

the book i "doctored" was simply purchased in a rush by the publisher who didn't look very closely at it, since it filled a niche they were looking to fill
9:53 pm
Nef

There is a list, M9. I listed at 28; & am too busy chatting right now
9:53 pm

they then found out it was badly researched and full of incorrect "facts"
9:54 pm

m9, check to see if Molly has a list in her profile; she usually does
9:54 pm
Nef

Oh, wow! And they bought it anyway? Why would an author turnout drivel like that?
9:54 pm
m9f9l

it's clay in a powder form. I like the french green clay best. Here's from some website: From the standpoint of mineralogy, French green clay belongs to a subcategory of clay minerals known as illite clays, the other two major groups being kaolinite and smectite clays.

no, book doctors are editors. the author gets the credit, and if the editor is lucky, she gets mentioned in the acknoledgements. (this is very common in the publishing biz; in fact, celebrities who write books often are not the actual authors)
