Happy Thanksgiving

Yes I know it is not December. I could have posted a cute little turkey for Thanksgiving but then today I went to Bass Pro. Here is a picture of the ultimate hunter's Christmas tree. I love it. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Whoo Hoo! A New Computer!

Well the dinosaur computer finally died Tuesday night. That meant there was not a functioning computer in the house. So off to Best Buy and there lo and behold was a great deal on a desktop, laptop and netbook. Oh my goodness how great it is to "go fast". Hopefully now I can get caught up on pictures and knitting. Now I should be able to comment and keep in contact with some of my friend's blogs. This is gonna be so much fun!

Functioning With Pain

There is a great post on Lene Andersen's blog today. . It is titled Before and After and Before. Those of us who deal with chronic diseases and chronic pain are always searching for what will curb or reduce the pain so we can function more normally. Sometimes we find the answer only to have the medicine recalled or the healthcare system to defund a therapy or we lose our insurance. Somehow, somewhere there has to be an answer. Oh, yeah, and the people who are making the decisions need to have some idea of what it is like to have a chronic illness and not just decide willy nilly who has care and who doesn't. Check out Lene's post.

Veteran's Day

Today is Veteran's Day. A big thank you goes out to all the men and women who serve in our Nation's military. In my own family I have my son Joseph who serves today with the Army. My Dad who served with the Navy in the Pacific during WWII. Also my brother in law who served during the Vietnam era in the Army. Today Jo and I went to the cemetary and put flowers on my Dad's grave. She loves to do this. While we were there she worried about several graves that had no flowers. Across the cemetary there were flowers that had blown off other places so she made sure that there were flowers on graves with out them. Thanks again to all our brave military. Thank you, we love you and we are proud of you.

Happy Birthday Jo!

Happy Birthday Jo!! You are a joy to my life.


Today is an election day. Be sure and vote. No matter how some people feel we still live in the greatest nation on Earth. No matter how you feel about any politics going on today many men and women have sacrificed their lives for us to be able to have this freedom and priviledge. Plus it is my personal opinion if you don't vote you should not gripe about whatever is going on in local, state or national politics. Go Vote!
