Good to read everyones positivity over ones ailments, as for me this weeks heat has brought the worst out over my skin flair-up problems...For a longtime now I suffer oozing skin lower part of my stomach-groin area, which I still very much believe is part of my watery urinary bleed problem that no specialists can find any signs of blood, ( I do have a pea sized lump right side but, it has always been dismissed....then the stomach flair-up causes my stomach bloat...) This bleed is still going on after two years, but I am happy to stay clear of those hospitals as they told me they never found any signs of cancer, that is good enough for me...I must mention that a big part of my MS stems from my lower stomach, right thigh, groin areas....Also for some time ( I now dont bother to wear a bra ) the inside-underside of my breasts, mainly the right side gets raw-red and oozes, where on both flair-ups I have to use a silk talc powder to dry the flair-ups up, when these happen they can become quite painful and uncomfortable and not forgetting the smells...anwell this heat has really brought out the worst in me but now I do believe its over, thank the Lord...
Guess I have told you more than you need to know...Hope you dont think I am " winging, "  just stating some facts that I have never mentioned before..

...our two weathers couldn't be any more different...I do so agree, it is sure a tough life for our farmers, our changing weathers when it messes up their livelihoods...

Hi late Friday evening. All is well but want to get up in the morning and work on my new installation of Windows 10 on the new hard drive Scott installed for me this evening. We did get Windows 10 installed on it and it should get the updates installed during the night. So I likely won't post again until Friday.

Janet, sorry to learn of further destruction of crops out your way.

Jeanne, I find myself thinking similar things when I hit a snag.

I forgot to tell you all that we had another bad storm here last night.  High winds, rain and hail.  It pretty well devastated out garden and my flowers, but the saddest part is that it pretty much wiped out the wheat that survived the blizzard, and shredded the leaves on the young corn plants.  I don't think it covered a large area, so that's a mercy.  I just saw a young farmer from the next town north of here saying his wheat was making about 40 bushels to the acre; now he thinks it won't make even five.  Not enough to pay to run the combine over it to harvest.  Really tough on the farmers.  And tonight, we are having a repeat--it's already hitting!  It got up to 102 here today!

Janet, I'm doing pretty good today.   :D  In fact most days aren't too bad - at least for most of each day.  I've been so healthy for most of my life that it's quite a learning experience suddenly dealing with half a dozen chronic ailments and the meds that go with them.  The Lord must still have some reason for keeping me here.   ;)

Howdy, Friends!

Carol, thank you for the birthday wishes, and you are so right about me needing a hug!
Like Larry, I'm glad you decided against retirement in the mountains!  People in our age bracket need to be closer to help than six hours!  As Larry said, a six hour ambulance ride would be torture!

Marilyn, I hope changing your seat adjustment will help.  Maybe some special pillows, too?  I know I need a small pillow behind my shoulder blades when I sit in my recliner, otherwise I get to hurting pretty quickly.  So far, I am quite comfortable in the car.
In the pickup, not as much.

Jackie, not having air conditioning here would be intolerable.  We sometimes have weeks at a time with temps in the 100* or higher range.  And of course, once you get used to having AC, you think you will melt without it!  I very seldom turn it on, as this house stays comfortable unless we open windows and doors and let the hot air in--which we don't do!  Darrel uses it a lot more than I.  I sometimes need a light sweater to be comfortable in the cool he prefers.  :)

Jeanne, how are you doing today?

We started this morning at 64*, now it's up over 101, and still rising!  Whew!

Hi everyone. It is to be another overcast day and we are starting out with humidity of almost 90% with continued chances for rain.  The excitement for yesterday was that we experienced a 3.2 earthquake within 10 miles or so of us.  I didn't feel any shaking but heard a loud and fairly long what I thought was thunder.  However, apparently it was the impact of the earthquake.  As far as I know it didn't cause any damage in the area as realize that really isn't a very strong earthquake. 

I did go and pick up the groceries yesterday at Walmart and then stopped at the Office Depot nearby and bought a new hard drive.  Scott said he was looking forward to putting it in for me.  Hopefully by tomorrow sometime I will be back using my big desktop.  The only activity on hand for today is this evening when we will have dinner with Scott and Jennifer.  As far as I know we will be eating in.

Jackie, just keep looking up and take things one day at a time.  That works for me and I hope it will work for you as well.  I know I am responsible for my own happiness.  I see you don't have air conditioning in your homes in your area but that you get a breeze from the sea.

Marilyn, glad you are safely home but so sorry to read of your driving discomfort.  I hope changing the position of the seat will be helpful.  I bet you are dreading the next long drive next month but hope it will be better.

Carol, you were indeed wise not to retire in the mountains and stay close to medical facilities.  Even though the area we now live is not large we do have wonderful health care and hospitals close by and that is reassuring.  Six hours in an ambulance would be sheer torture if you were in a lot of pain but suppose the paramedics were able to do something to reduce the pain he was felling on that long trip to Denver. 
Janet, that is a very high temperature you are enduring.  I saw on the news last night about the extreme heat in the Phoenix area and wonder how the people there stand it.  It was even affecting flights at the airport.  We again in the 80's today but the forecast ahead shows we are headed for the upper 90's.  Glad your arm is feeling better. I love that name Puffy Pizza as that is how we all would be if we ate too much of it.

Belated birthday wishes for JANET!!!  What a day for you.  You need a  :grouphug:

I have seasoned and cooked chicken now frozen to bring for dinner tomorrow night.  There is a salad of cole slaw and other veggies in the fridge which I found that recipe on the internet.  I use a couple of sites for recipes but still keep a lot of old time books and a box of hand-written favorites.  We won't have the internet but can drive to a little coffee shop or park ourselves at the library.  Cell phones can be used and that is good for safety - they have a fire department but a clinic is miles away.  Anyone severely injured has to be helicoptered out or go by ambulance.  One son had an ambulance trip after his snowmobile injury and the total time to get to the the main Denver hospital was about six hours- during a snowstorm..  I am sure Don and I made the right decision not to retire in the mountains.  _ that is when I forced the decision and he did agree.

My iPad is over 5 years old and getting iffy even with a fairly new battery.  It didn't want to wake from sleep overnight but slowly came around.

WE are back home the drive just about did me in. I think  It might be better now that I have changed the ;position of my  seat in the car. I was hurting so bad we had to stopped  4 times for me to get out and walk away the pain in my leg and butt. I also hafd a great deal of pain in my right side. that has been happening to me ever since I got this  car. Our next long trip is in July to Vancouver Washington to Craig's house so Corey (Two of Keith's sons) can drive up to Keith's eye appointment at the Oregon Health and Science Un iversity6's Casey Eye Institute in Portland Oregon. Just over the river.

...that is the one thing we dont do or have in our homes here in UK..." air conditioning "...guess we would if we suffered these heatwaves on a regular basis but we just hits us out of the blue...
...all I can do is open some windows and pull the blinds down, on the other hand, Richard of course cant get enough of this uncomfortable heat, nor does he feel the cold in winter...If he had his way our heating wouldn't go on until November..
