> I just have a procrastination issue with a DAILY movement -

Been there, done that, have the T-shirt. ;) So good for you that you did what you did! What is working for me is to get up after eating, check the TDS on my Aerogarden (another little green tomato, hooray!), and then go to the sofa and do my pedaling. I just have to get into the habit.

I was about 30 when my hip problems started, and it's gradually gotten worse over the years.

Thank you Panger - yes, burns are from the radiation, both inside mouth, tongue and rightside of face oh and that ear that sticks out. I have burn creme coming next week (small town here). don't know how to explain what the taste buds are doing except are burned and all stuff makes them hot. Knowing I'd be able to eat anything and not worry about weight I bought 5 gal of ice cream before rad. LOL burns and absolutely no taste. oh, maybe like eating burned toast, yep that's it.

Dar next week will be better!!

Panger--she would look like in garage or other outbuilding--outside they collect dust,etc. Just look for one that doesn't have prey, ugh, caught. Ther are usually more to the center I think. Haven't had one p0ut on me since childhood. HOWEVER , and this is true, what my Dad put his finger into the power saw she got as many webs as she could to help bleeding while they rushed to hospital. By the way, have you ever heard of a spoonful of sugar damped with Kerosene for sore throat? I am still here 70 years later, FAT, but here.

My husband cut his hand on a piece of glass once. I could not get the bleeding stopped. Went in the cellar and got some spiderwebs and put on it; stopped bleeding almost immediately. It does work.

When I was going thru chemo/radiation I couldn't eat anything. A friend suggested frozen watermelon, and frozen grapes. I found I could eat these. Also try mashed potatoes/w gravy. I HATED mashed potatoes, but could eat these, and liked it!
Good luck

Thanks shayshaydave. We just got back from a Medi-Express and they concurred that the poison ivy was infected. Came home with an antibiotic cream, oral antibiotics, and more steroids. I'm totally serious, he's actually leaving drips on the floor when he walks because of the oozing.

Oh, the red line up the arm could possibly be an infection that travels to the heart. Never mess around with those!

Shayshay says:
Well, I'm glad to hear he got medical attention and meds, but wow.... his condition sounds miserable! Poor guy!
Thanks for explaining about the red line. I assumed it might have meant an infection traveling to the heart, but I didn't want to assume!

Hi Grandma & Kelly,

I apologize for not seeing your posts about functionality in websites and the CMOS battery. Strange that your experience is so different from mine. I do understand your explanation, and why things should be as you explain it.

However I miss things all the time in my browsers. In fact an ammy tech tried to get me to see MYK. He had me look at the top of my browser, where it should have been under the checkout cart. Nope. He had me look under Shop by Department > Kindle. Nope. I read back to him all that I saw. (This was before MYK was in the Your Acct Drop down Menu.) He finally had to navigate me to Your Acct > Digital Content > Digital Management, where I finally saw MYK. Eventually over time I got back everything I was supposed to see. I haven't bothered to figure out why, other than to quote what people do say about the differences between browser capability. It could have been IE8 or Chrome when that happened, before IE9 came available. This was on a 5 yo computer.

On the CMOS battery, my laptop kept bluescreening and eating up Windows capabilities. I'd fix them, and then something else would go wrong. I restored, I updated, I repaired. I scanned, rescanned with at least three different programs. I defragged and cleared caches, histories and recycle bin. New things kept going wrong. Finally I reseated the processor and changed the CMOS battery. Don't really know which fixed the problem, as I wasn't about to pull the computer apart twice just to know which one worked. The laptop works like a charm now. It is an 8 yo laptop.

While, yes, the system clock is one obvious way to suspect the CMOS battery, occasionally a user who is glued to the computer will start to notice things go wrong when it starts to fail, Or perhaps the time is off, but not dramatically off. There's no logical reason why that should be. I've just seen it happen.

So while, in general I agree with what you say, I wouldn't rule out the strange and quirky, if the standard things don't work. You had given the topmost best and most reliable things things for Kelly to do. She did them, and she still had the problem. So some odd things about what else could be causing slowdowns would pop into my mind. And I mentioned them.

Also I get a newsletter from a well-respected tech who has been writing and fixing computers for at least 30 years, Fred Langa. And, while I think I'm risk averse, he is so over the top about never ever using anything except the latest version of anything, and updated, at that. After reading his work, I think the only time I would use older software is if the computer is never connected to the internet or to other people's usb flash drives! Or only connected to a separately subscribed wired broadband connection. Which I might very well do, since I miss some of the older programs.

So I'm not disagreeing with you at all, if you'll notice. I do give credibility to the illogical, though, when I've seen things like that before, either mentioned in forums elsewhere as little-known fixes, or I've experienced them myself.

@Utah Reader - Re Fred Langa's newsletter. Each tech and security person has their own ideas of course. Put a couple of them in a room and you'll get at least three opinions on everything. The thing to remember when dealing with older computers and software is that newer software is simply not built to run on older computers. Running the latest/greatest is only optimal if you have the latest greatest machine to run it on.

There is also another, very popular school of thought about the "latest greatest" software: let somebody else work out the kinks.

@ Micki,
Oh no the tone on your post to me seems to be slightly off. I was admiring you, and in fact I might have you mistaken with someone else in here. You just seem to have so many home remedies, and great ideas, and I thought you had talked about a job picking potatoes, and other things. And yes I'm poficient it tapping buttons on a computer, but if it came to living... out in the "wild" You could sure teach us a lot. at least I think it was you had all the tricks and tips... I may have been confused I'm sorry and I surely didn't mean to offend... I was being admiring and complimentary... I guess it didn't come across in type that way. sorry again. I just finally got a free day, and I plugged my name into the discussion so I'm catching up on any posts that address me. Someone was talking about working at a young age and actually making 1.25 a week but they were forced to use a 1 on neccessities and could save the 25 for themselves.

Micki, you've been nothing but sweet to me, and I wish to be the same to you!

Hi, Kelly! Good to see you back online - I admire you for at least trying to keep up. And I'm sure you are proficient in many things - there are a lot of stories told and details given here and maybe you did miss some or mis-attribute one or two....but you always try and complement everyone and are so sweet when you are here! I never saw you ask anyone to **justify** anything about themselves, and it is nice of you to relate to the stories told!

Just to ease your mind, I understood you and got what you meant in your original post. I don't want you feeling bad! I knew you meant it in a light-hearted, admiring way.
