I just finished several days catching up on all  both of you have created. So beautiful. Makes me wonder if I will ever be able to do anything I want to share again.

I installed PSP in my windows 7 but it will not work. Now I will have to install in in 10 and hope it will work there. I saved the 10dlls but not all 10 were there. I will have to beg one of you to please send them to me.  Would appreciate it very much.

I have saved a lot of Jemima's tuts. Always enjoyed doing them. Of course I always liked frames, they always are the first thing I look at. Some of the background I have seen in your creations are wonderful. I dread installing plugins again. Maybe I should  take plugin lessons again.

PATRICIA  you L3 is the only game that looks familiar, like one I did a long time ago.

BUBBLE  your Flor de Neve looks like it has a lot of layers to it.

Wish me luck getting PSP installed again and it will work in 10.

Good morning everyone, sun is shining but snow will be coming later and stay into morning according to the forecast. Who knows.

JANE  yesterday's snow did not last either but is was nice to watch some big flakes floating by my window. We have no more on the grass here, with th warmer temperatures and all the fog then rain we had only the piles from the plow are still around.

JUNE  I know we would be good friends if we lived near each other. Being in each others pockets is not the best way to be friends, you are right. I believe God will watch over Regina, not because she is my daughter but because she is a good caring person.

JANE  glad your car has a new battery. Wish a new battery could be installed in me so I could have some energy.

GLORIA de  I do love Skype, we see each other and she has taken her iPad around her new home and showed me what they have done in there. She takes it outside at times and shows me around her area. Only way I will ever see where they now live. Like you I am having a problem keeping warm this winter.

AMY  after shrimp who could want something else? I love shrimp.

LLOYD  just saw local weather report, this are might get 5 to 7 inches of new snow. I'll believe it when I see it.

Good morning everyone, when I pulled the shades up I stood there watching lazy snowflakes falling. Was surprised to see a dusting on the ground and then just watched how easily they were floating down. Nothing on yesterday's forecast about snow until Wednesday.

GLORIA de  I think everyone has a pity party at times as we age and remember days when we were younger and all our families were alive and well.

LLOYD  when I was driving I always gave those big 18 wheelers a lot of room. They are a lot bigger than what I was driving. Pulling a small trailer was bad enough so I always gave those drivers my respect and the room they need.

JUNE  I know about being too tired to eat. Every time I try coo‌king I am too worn out to eat.

HAL  what a shock to read y our post from yesterday. You are a tough ole guy so you will be home soon. I will be one of the many praying for you. I know you will not give the doctors and nurses a hard time even if you want to go home ASAP. Thank you for letting us know.

JUNE  thank you. Regina doesn't sound worried at all, she has faith in God to help. Of course she never told me till after the surgery that is was cancer. I just wish I could be there with her.

CALLIE  thank you. Regina and her health are about all I can think of these days.

SHIRLEY  thank GOD for Skype. At least I can see her and talk to her every day. She does look good and she is not worried about it. She never was good at hiding her feelings, at least not with me. I do not know about other papers but here one has to pay to have an obit put in the paper. I have to my family I do not want one nor any wake or hoopla.

BUBBLE  thanks for the new page and the jokes.

HAL  taking care of business is hard when you do not have privacy.

AMY  TV says 20° here and looks like the snow has stopped.

PHYLLIS  lately I feel that as long as I can get out of bed in the morning it will be a good day.

Good morning everyone, feels like winter is still here. After hitting 63° early yesterday it is now 17° according to the TV and the sun is shining. Now except for the piles of snow the plows left and we had our January thaw we are in for snow this week. No idea how much but we do know that winter is far from over. We have had several big snowfalls on St. Patrick's day and even in April.

MARY ANN  where I can order online for delivery they do not have everything and everything seems to be in large packages, no small ones. Still for someone like me who cannot get to a market it is very convenient. I do miss going into a market and seeing what's new and picking my own produce. I KNOW I am old already  :(

GLORIA de  like you it was warmer after midnight yesterday that after the sun rose. Winter this year really got to these old bones. Do not have to go out in the cold to feel it either. I really have been turning the heat up this winter. Same here along the shore where people have their summer houses. A storm either damages them or washes them away and they rebuild in the same place again.

CALLIE  I have a folder like you and keep putting off clearing it out.  I must have some things in there from 10 years ago. Doubt I need those anymore.

LLOYD  thank you. Jeanne Lee is in a better place now where she is with God. We will all miss her.

JENNY  I wish someone had Joe's email address so we could find out about JOAN. I know we all would like to know.  Thank you for you prayers for Regina. She is in my prayers and thoughts all the time especially with them living so far away from everything. At least they  will not have to go to Phoenix-a 7 hour round trip- and it can be done in Kingman, a 2 hour round trip.

AMY  thank you for the link. I will let Regina know she has prayers coming from my cyber family. She did join SN years ago but never had time to post much. You are so right about that hidden ice. I know I looked up at the sky a few tines because of it.

JANE  good luck getting that battery today. Like you I am looking forwad to spring and finally warmer weather.

PHYLLIS  I am with you about dressing in layers in this weather. At least I do not have to worry about heating bills as that is included in my rent. I do turn it up till I can be comfortable.

LARRY  the bridges in this state are in bad shape and if not fixed soon I am afraid some will collapse during rush hour. There are many 18 wheelers going on all the highways and our governor wants to put a tax on them. It would be easy to go around the state but local truckers are against it. They say they will take their businesses out of state. There would be less tax.

Good morning everyone. I am late today. That wind and rain last night kept me awake. It was hitting my windows so hard I thought they would break. Finally got to sleep after 5am. At midnight it was 61°, another  record broken. 45° now and bu tomorrow morning will be in the teens. Just about all the snow is gone except for the big piles from the plow.

LLOYD  glad you liked what I posted yesterday. That was on JOAN posted a long time ago. I was checking out folders on my external drive. I had one of some of Joan's morning posts.

JANE  since the blizzard in 1978 when it was unexpected  even the mention of snow will send many to the store for the milk and bread and snacks.

MARY ANN  we missed the mix of snow/rain and that is OK.

AMY  that flash freeze is in our forecast, too. They said the roads would be icy but what I see from my window the road here looks dry. The wind dried things up pretty good when the rain stopped. The sun is shining and the sky a beautiful blue.

HAL  my grandson had bright red hair but it has darkened. When he decides to let his beard grow it is red and curly. Looks like one of the Irish Leprechauns and there is no Irish in the family. Years back he and some cousins took a tour of Europe and in Ireland people kept saying he must be a Boston Irish.

LARRY  the Fall River High school is 40 years old. They used to be in better shape years ago and were built to last. Nothing these days is made or built to last.  So many schools in the area had broken pipes and water damage.  I must have seen 6 orthopedic back doctors and only the first one talked surgery before he even looked at my back. Then he wanted to give me cortisone shots every 4 weeks.  None helped, and the last pain doctor hit a nerve at my spine and my left leg has bothered me since. I imagine Bubble would a like having some help.

CAROL  my daughter had a mesquite tree in their front yard in San Diego. My SIL  kept the bottom branches cleared so the could walk under it. Very pretty. They have some on their place in Arizona that have grown wild and look so different.

JUNE  I think many of us have dates with those men every day. Charley Horse does not come calling often and for that I am thankful.

AMY  glad the snow and wind has not showed up here. A little breezy but sky is still clear and temperature e is falling. Beautiful video, thanks you.

SHIRLEY  with 2 weeks of below 20° I hope all the darn bugs here were killed, especially the gypsy moth eggs and ticks.

HAL  yesterday I made a pot of chicken soup and it hit the spot with the cold and rain.

JENNY  I have a few more of JOAN”S posts that I can post, only have to remember to do it. Every time I read one I wish we would hear something about her. Seems like ages since you shared a Facebook post from Joe about her.

JANE  so many seems to have bad colds or some kind of bug this winter. So far so good in my family.

MARY ANN  I can order online for a grocery delivery and pick the day and time for it. I try to pick a time when a CNA will be here to help put it away.

SHIRLEY  right now I have my bedroom window open and the thermostat down. Love to get fresh air in every day unless it is too cold out. Of course the manager does not want any open windows at this time of year. She says it will freeze the heating elements under the windows. It is above freezing now so should be safe.  You would think that in Ca. They would be smart enough not to give out permits to build in dry river beds and on the edge of cliffs.

My daughter's birthday is 12-27-1953. She is doing good so far but now has to go for 5 weeks of radiation. She was hoping to avoid that but when she saw the doctor last week he said better to safe to make sure all the cancer is gone. I still do not have everything installed in this poor excuse of a computer.

Old Folks

Dear Pastor:
    Don't ever forget about us old folks. We are worth a fortune. We have Silver in our hair, Gold in our teeth, Stones in our kidney's, Lead in our feet and Gas in our stomachs.
    I myself have become quite a frivolous old gal since I wrote you last.
As a matter of fact, I'm seeing five different gentleman every day.
    When I get up in the morning, Will Power gets me out of bed. Then I immediately go see John. A few minutes later, Charley Horse comes along.
When he leaves, Arthur-itis shows up and finally I'm so tired, I go to bed with Ben Gay.
    As you can see, we all need your prayers.....

Good morning everyone, warm start to the day, 45°. Heat wave is here.

JENNY  I heard that Wallmart raise on the news last night. Guess they could not be outdone by the "BIG" raise in Social Securitiy this year.

HAL  glad Steve is improving.

JANE  hope you get the $1,000 bonus. That would help with the isulation. Wonder how long it will be before the Churchill movie will be on TV. I would not be able to sit in a theater to watch a movie anymore.

SHIRLEY  glad you are home safe and sound once again. I had many shots of penicillin when I got a strep throat.

JUNE  I am like you wishing we would hear something about JOAN. Been too long since Jenny told us about a message from Joe on Facebook.

JANE  like you we are in for a lot of rain here then freezing with the drop in temperature. I already told my son not to drive here Saturday because of icy roads.

LLOYD  my younger son at 65 has a lot of dark hair with maybe a few strands of white but his beard is white.

Have a good day everyone.

An oldie but goody

Grandma's Take on Modern Life
Some time ago, a loving grandson was talking to his dear, old grandmother about modern life. He asked for her opinion on everything that had been going on in recent years. His grandmother gave him a long look and said: "Well now, sonny. Let me see...
I was born before:
Frozen foods
Contact lenses
The pill
There were no:
Credit cards
Laser beams
Ball-point pens
Clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air.
Man hadn't walked on the moon.

Your grandfather and I didn't live together 'til we got married. There were very few single mothers.

I called every man older than me 'sir' until I was 25. After I turned 25, I still kept calling every man with a title 'sir'.

We were before gay rights, computer-dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy.
Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common sense.

We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege.

We thought fast food was what people ate during  lent.
Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.

Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze started.
Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends, not purchasing condominiums.
We'd never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.

We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President's speeches on our radios.
If you saw anything with 'Made in Japan' on it, it was junk.
The term 'making out' referred to how you did on your school exam.

Pizza Hut, McDonald's, and instant coffee were unheard of. We had 5 & 10-cent (5 and dime) stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.  Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel.
And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail one letter and two postcards.

You could buy a new Ford Coupe for $600, but who could afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.

'Grass' was mowed.
'Coke' was a cold drink.
'Pot' was something your mother cooked in.
'Rock music' was your grandmother's lullaby.
'Aids' were helpers in the Principal's office.
'Chip' meant a piece of wood.
'Hardware' was found in a hardware store.
'Software' wasn't even a word.

We volunteered to protect our precious country... No wonder people call us 'old and confused' and say there is a generation gap."

This woman is 76 years old.

She was born in 1941.

Gives you something to think about, doesn't it? It just goes to show you how much life can change in one lifetime.

Good morning everyone, 30° now at 7:30, much warmer that a week ago where it was with a below zero with wind chill. Just heard this afternoon will hit 50°. Our January thaw?

JOY  so many schools here had broken pipes but most schools here are old. The high school in Fall River, Ma. had pipe break Tuesday night and they showed on TV the water rushing out the doors and down the stairs and out the doors. That was not one of the old schools either.

PHYLLIS  with all the freezing temperatures we had here I felt housebound, too. I llove going outside to walk every day but it was too cold and stayed in. I would go down to check my mailbox and hardly anyone around to chat with either.

MARY ANN  I did see Bubble's post yesterday. So sad to read the message from Jeanne Lee's son.She has helped just about everyone here in S&F.

GLORIA de  it waas wonderful to see the sun shine all day yesterday. I went out and got some walking in and then sat on the porch enjoying sitting in the sun. Felt wonderful.  All that cold got to my back, too. No matter what I did it was painful.

JUNE  when I was without my computer for almost a month I re ally missed our Soda Shoppe family.

HAL  glad to see that Steve is improving and might go home tomorrow. I do know what a strep throat can do, I used to get them often.

LLOYD  hope your energy returns soon. No fun when you cannot get a good sleep every night.

AMY  glad you got out yesterday and found the shoes/boots needed.  WOW  you are having a heat wave. That is what we will be having the next couple of days, too.

JANE  that Winston Churchill movie did look good on the bits showed on TV. I do not think my sofa has any Zzzzz's in it. I lay on it every afternoon but have yet to find any. At least it gives my back a rest.

LARRY  several years ago I saw an orthopedic back  doctor and he told me there is no guarantee in back surgery and I could end up in a wheel chair the rest of my life. Others I have seen said I was too old, first one that told me that was more than 10 years ago. I know I will not get anymore shots in my back, never helped me.

Good morning everyone, another night sandman skipped me till about 3 this morning. I hate nights like that.

LLOYD  in this building not many have smiles but I give then one of mine. Sun is shining here so that makes the day a good one.

LARRY  we are happy here to get above 32°. The warmer days now here are the the “January thaw”. Even a bit above freezing feels warm. Rain due this coming week end, up to 4 inches. Too much but if it was snow that would be up to 4 feet.

JOY  34° here now but better than the 4° of just a few days ago. Every day lately one school or another is closed because pipes burst from the cold. Most schools are very old and cost too much to repair and no money for new ones. Would have been better to keep them updated when they started to crumble.

JUNE  like your greeting yesterday. You must be feeling much better, great.

HAL  I know ho bad Strep throats can be. My older son was on the verge of rheumatic heart as the result of one. The doctor told us to keep him in bed and off his feet and was at the house every morning to check him out. I will add Steve to my prayers. Is he the SIL who is always there to help you?

MARY ANN  sorry I do not know where that folder is. I do not check out other forums in S&F

JENNY  some of the schools here are very old and never been kept up with repairs. Ceilings falling, walls peeling and all that.

JANE  like you I have no idea how to fine the folder about Jeanne Lee.

BUBBLE  thanks for the link. Jeanne Lee has been a help to every one of us at one time or another.

Good morning everyone, had a dusting of snow over night but now the sun is shining. With all the freezing weather here many places had pipes burst, quite a few schools were closed because of damage. So many of the schools are very old and seems there is no money to fix them or build new ones. In the state capitol, Providence it is worse.

CALLIE  good luck finding someplace that can restore those old pictures.

JUNE  glad you are feeling better.

HAL  have fun with your tax filing.

JANE  cute poem.

JENNY  hope Mark's dreams come to fruition with that interview.

JANE  you closed yesterday with an uplifting spirit and star ted the day chipper. Looks like you are feeling good. Keep it up.

AMY  love the way a pet tells you it is time to get up.

Either I am early this morning or not many “up and at 'em” yet.

Soda Shoppe / Re: Soda Shoppe for January 1,2018

Good morning everyone. Now terrible cold this AM. TV guesser says 23°, almost a heatwave. Slept better last night than the last week or more.

PHYLLIS  just heard on local weather that this has been the longest we had in consecutive days of below 20°  on record. 

LARRY  Mt. Washington in NH is the highest point in New England and it somewhere where all the winds seem to swirl around. This cold has not been kind to my back either. I either have to sit or lay down to feel half human but cannot do anything if that is all I do.

JANE  this weather is perfect for home made soup.

AMY  I feel like you about hats but this year I have worn one more than ever.

HAL  I think someone's cold has got to me. Woke sneezing and coughing all morning.

GLORIA de  Squirrels will take all the bird seed and leave nothing for the birds.

JUNE  hard to believe baby June is already a little over 2 years old. September is 8 months away. My little great grandson is 2 1/2 now and too smart. I have not gone out in sever al days and the way I feel this morning I will stay in again today. Like you I miss JOAN and wish there was some news about her. Too long since we have.

GLORIA de when anyone asks how I am I tell them fine except for my back. If asked how I feel I answer with my fingers, have to make a wisecrack.

HAL  every thing these days seem to have a pre-op appointment. Wonder how necessary they are or if just a way to make more money.

AMY  hope you do not have to dance with nothing to do with snow. Hope the roads are clear for you drive.

JANE  no snow here today but Thursday 50° bringing rain with it. Hard to believe we will go from -6 0° to 50° in 4 days.         

Soda Shoppe / Re: Soda Shoppe for January 1,2018

Good morning everyone, just heard on local weather that we broke a record set in 1912 for cold. it is -6° and that is not the windchill.That is like 25 to 30 below zero. Have we moved to the north pole? We have been in the deep freeze for 2 weeks. We should be out of it toward the end of the week. Hooray, might be able to get outside again by the end of the week.

JANE  cold is cold no matter where we live and I am so ready for the 50° the weather guesser  says we will have by the end of this week. At least I am lucky I do not have to go out in it. Bundle up when you go to church this morning. Hope everyone's cars start, too.

AMY  this year for the first time I have worn a warm hat when I go out. I dislike hats but will do every thing to be warm. My jacket has a hood and I have that over the hat. Maybe it is because I no longer move fast but I really feel the cold this year. Maybe it is the age by now? No, old is a frame of mind, right?

PHYLLIS  the sun has been out most days here but has dione little to warm anything up. Sky  has been clear and even at night bright with stars. Hope you made it to the store and home again with enough food to wait out this cold. Stay warm.

LARRY  like you this is the first time the cold has bothered me. Sure does not help my back any. Like you I do not understand why the TV stations send people out in this weather. Even most churches here have canceled services today.

HAL  I remember my parents talking about that popping sound when they lived in Canada. With the cold here thi last 2 weeks I do not know if it is heard here because I have stayed inside. Have you tried honey to sooth your throat? Always worked for my family and me. A teaspoon of it and let it slowly melt in your mouth, don't just  swallow it all at once.

JANE  hoagie or sub here they are called grinders. So many different names for the same thing. I enjoy one at times but been some time since I had one.

AMY  only eagles I have seen were in zoos and the Sand Diego wild anuimal park. I would love to see one in the wild.

JUNE  you make me wish I was living in a place like yours. The staff there are so caring. Here the staff -manager- just does not understan the elderly and can make life miserable for some of us. Hope you feel better soon.

JENNY  wonderful how police from all over go to the funerals of fallen officers. These days it is a dangerous job.

SHIRLEY  don't ever change. If you started being a "sweet little old lady" we would not know you. You have a love of life and people that I envy. Twice I had that pain in my heel and the Podiatrist numbed it and put a shot in it. He also gave me a brace to wear at night if it bothered me again. It keeps the toe part of foot higher, stretching from the heel. Works fine when I need it.

AMY  I have the thermostat turned up and staying inside. I will not go out in this cold.

Good morning everyone, another day in the deep freeze here. We will all be happy to see it get above freezing again, a whole -3° now but wind chills -15 to 25 below zero. Last night the wind was howling so loud it woke me. Sounded like a wolf howling. It hits this corner of the building and gets into the cracks around the windows. Just heard that o0n top of Mt. Washington in NH -highest point in New England- it is -99°. Sure would not want to work up there. The son of a friend does work there.

HAL  lucky you BUT according to the last report I saw by the end of next week we will be in the 40's. Yippee, that means I will be able to go outside again. Sure I can bundle up but cannot move fast enough to keep warm.

LLOYD  glad Lucky is OK.

JANE  hope you had an easy day at WM yesterday.

LARRY  I cannot remember such a long cold spell with strong wind like this one. I am happy we did not lose power. This place has a generator but only warms the main floor and with no elevator I would not be able to get down there without help. I always liked winter and said I would know I was old when I did not like it, guess I am now OLD.

CALLIE  my Mom never had a written recipe  so a lot of what she made died with her.

JUNE  I hope today finds you feeling much better.

JANE  several years ago my daughter sent me a down throw and I really have used it this winter.

AMY  too cold here and would not survive it is got as cold as you have.

SHIRLEY  so many times on TV news you see people with scarfs up over their noses or the collars of their coats up around their faces and only their eyes showing.

Have a good day and stay warm.

Good morning everyone, what a day yesterday. I tried going online but every time I did the power blinked on and off so gave up. We got 16 inches of wind blown snow. Last night when the snow stopped falling it was hard to tell because the wind was blowing it all over. The cars in the parking lot have no snow ohe roofs and it was piled up on the east  facing sides of them. Maintenance man kept plowing the walks and even the porch. That wasst time I saw the porch covered with snow. Very cold, too. Started at 10° and will be dropping all day. The plow truck was here several times during the night and of course he woke me every time.

JANE  I turned my thermostat up to 90 and still could not warm up. Wind was blowing through the cracks in the cheap windows. Whistled all night, still windy.

JENNY  Grayson was as bad or wose here than the forecasters said. Glad I did not have to go out. Sounds like your Dad should be in the hospital.

AMY  just heard on local news we might have another storm the beginning of next week.

PHYLLIS  I have no desire to go outside in this cold and wind. In a way good thing it is so cold because the snow is light and the wind blew most off the roofs. I gave up knitting and crocheting almost 10 years ago, my hands kept cramping.

HAL  56° would feel like summe here right now.

LARRY  no school here yesterday and today. Too darn cold.

JUNE  glad you called the RN for some help a last.

DON  I live in senior housing and would love a retirement home but here they are very expensive. Glad this town has a car to take us to doctor appointments but not for shopping or anything else. Enjoy tour time in Israel.

MARY ANN  we have public transportation but I could never walk to the closest place to get a bus. If I really have to go someplace my son will take me but I do not want to take advantage of him.

SHIRLEY  those jars of cheese made stuffing celery easy. Now I use cream cheese and mix different things to it, like some with chopped cherries,or black olives or crushed pineapple or what ever. That is what I make to bring for holidays now. There are 2 different retirement places that have ads on TV and one looks wonderful but not for my wallet.

JENNY  glad your Dad is finally getting some help. Congratulations to Mark and getting what he has worked so hard for.

JUST heard on locat weather that with the wind chill it will feel like 20 below zero at times today. Another day I will stay inside.

AMY  I like Canada (my Dad was born there) and Canadians but I wish they would stop sending their cold temperature here.. Yes I know you get it from further north but sto being so generous and sharing it with us.

Just thought I would let you know I might not be here tomorrow. This storm is going to be bad with up to 14 inches of snow and winds up to 50mph. All local channels are saying we could lose power. This town has it's own power and they return power faster than the National Grid. All the workers are local ad they do not want their families to go without it.

LLOYD  we always had a big garden and my Mom did a lot of canning and so did I. Very appreciated in winter. Now my daughter cans. Sure saves money and tastes better than what one buys.

JUNE  hope that cold leaves you soon.

HAL  not nice with no hot water.

JANE  this is the coldest winter we have had here in many years.

Have a good night and all in the path of this storm stay inside and keep warm.

Good morning everyone, late getting here, really cought up on sleep and I feel awake now. Sun is shining and the emp is 25° according to TV.

LLOYD  I turned the thermostat up to 90 and let it get hot in here before I got into the shower . No shivering when I got out of it.

MARY ANN  I like most vegetable. My Mom made some creamed ones once in awhile and I always liked that.

LARRY  no sympathy from those of us in the deep freeze. Envy you will get when it feels warm in the 20's now.

JANE  sorry the new year is not starting off good for you. Means it can only improve. I remember buying small jars of that dried beef, my ex liked it. Only creamed veggie I will eat is cream corn when I hake shepherd's pie.

AMY  tomorrow we a e in for a nor'easter. Weather  guessers all say chance of power outages. Ler it snow and be windy but please do no let us lose power.I think our generation all ate what was put before us. Not like some of today's kids.

SHIRLEY  I know I want to email Doris but seems like I have spent all my computer time since I got this PC back tring to get ever y thing installed again. Of course the first thing I did was get S&F up and running.

JUNE  rest/sleep is the best when one has a cold. Take care of yourself.

HAL  I used to buy the small jars of the dried beef but have no seen it in years, mainly because I never liked it.

JANE  resting and taking care of yourself is more important than going to work when you are ill.

SHIRLEY  I had a lot of those small Kraft cheese glasses. Just right for kids to handle. Used the different cheeses for stuffed celery.

HAL  yesterday the weather forecasters said 30° here today, big storm tomorrow with a possible foot of snow in places then back into the deep freeze on Friday. Been many years since we had an extended cold spell like this. Must be global warming making it this cold. yeah right.

JENNY  good thoughts and prayers for your Dad. You are so lucky to still have him.

PHYLLIS  great seeing you this morning. Hope this year brings better health for you and your son. I do not look forward to no power, this building would get pretty cold. Only one generator to keep the bottom floor warm. With the elevator not running I would be unable to get down the 2 flights of stairs.

LARRY  thanks for letting us know about Jeanne Lee. Prayers for her.

Amy   glad your new boyfriend is easy for you.

Good morning everyone, a whole 8° now, warmest morning is ages it seems.
Finally slept 4 hours but still not the 7 or 8 I usually do.

AMY  over the years some have come and gone in the SS but the only one I worry about is JOAN.

Not much to say this morning and want to get into the shower before my CNA gets here.

            HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018

Good morning everyone, had another sleepless night. That is 2 nights in a row and I do not like it. Not normal for me. At 11am it is now 3°. Sun is bright but will not warm things up on this New Year's day. Wonder how those who spent the time outside celebrating had a bit of frostbite.

MARY ANN  I was wondering how those in NY and here in Providence fared out in the bitter cold last night. Not for me.

JUNE  the CNA who was here Friday wore a mask. She was told that since she had a cold she had to wear it and not give it to me. The company is carefull about their clients.

GLORIA de  I am still getting used to the difference in this computer after being without it for so long.

HAL  been a long time since I watched the ball drop in NY. Wonder how the one in Providene did. First time they tried that here.

BUBBLE  thanks for the new page and beautiful graphic and chuckles.

LLOYD  our high today will get to 11°, mot very warm.

JANE  hope you can rest/sleep as much as possible with that cold. What a way to start 2018. Take care. I like sauerkraut, too.

JOY  like you I cannot remember these temperatures for a long time. We ar  e suppposed to be in this cold all week. This is a couple of weeks and that is a long time. One good thing it will kill a lot of bugs  that manage to survive in the winters we have been having.

HAL  amazing rope trick.

LARRY  I know there are differnt polar bear groups around but the one postpo‌ned is the one here in RI. I did notice the last time I was in the office that she also has a good size heater in it. She is the only one with her AC in the wall under her window. It is there all year and no cover over it to keep cold air out. The rest of us are supposed to have ours out by October 1st.

CALLIE  just checked and it is now 3° so it is warming up a bit.

SHIRLEY  no traditional food here for the new year. The only sauerkaout I buy is Silver Floss. There are a few other brands that I tried but that is the best around here. I have to get in touch with Doris, have not talked to her in ages. I do miss her.

DON  been thinking of you. Wondered how many times you were Santa this season. I hope it was more than that first one about the time my PC died.

Good morning everyone, had one of those nights where I could not get to sleep. Finally about 4 this morning I finally did but feeling sleep deprived this morning. This bitter cold temperatures are getting the best of me. I have the heat up to about 80 and still feel cold. At least the sun is shining for a change.
On New Year's day there is a group of “polar bears” that take a dip in the ocean. This year because of the cold they will postpone it to a later date. They have been doing this for many years and this is the first time they postponed it.

One thing I want to know, was there and news at all from or about JOAN? I did not go back to read all the posts I missed, still trying to get things installed into the PC. Not as fast at doing it like I used to be.

It is 1°but feels like below zero. I hope the ones going out to celebrate New Year's Eve tonight do not freeze. On local news they said that Providence and the ones putting on the big celebration tonight have thousands of hand warmers to pass out to those who attend. They will be allowed to take a blanket with them. Then they would like those that do to leave them there for the homeless.
They are even planning to drop a ball from the top of a building like in  Times Square. Going to be freezing for the Patriots game today. Those players make enough $$$ to put up with it.

SANDY  I agree with you about the weather this winter. Been many years since we have had such a long spell of this frigid temperatures.

CALLIE I drove in all kind of weather when I was working but now I worry about family members driving on slippery roads. Foolish I know as they have all been driving for years now. Ice of any kind is hard to drive on no matter what kind of car you have.

AMY  we all have a thermostat so I do push it up. I can no longer be cold, I don't care what she wants when it comes to being cold.

GLORIA de  I agree with you about being outside tonight. On the news the announcer said to stay outside no more than 20 minutes and go inside to warm up and go out again. Of course the merchants will like that as they will spend money. We did not get much snow yesterday,  along the shore they got more. On one of the highways here there is a big milk can. Years ago it was a place to stop for ice cream. It was moved but no one has done anything with it. On one of the buildings in Providence there is a big blue bug that has become a landmark. It is an exterminator who owns the building and put it up years ago. They have it decorated for different holidays, right now it has Christmas lights on it. They had a contest for kids to name it so it is called Wiggles Woodaway.

JUNE  I send prayers for you to get rid of that cough.

JENNY  my daughter is doing great. The surgeon wants her to go for radiation treatments to make sure  there is no cancer. We did talk on the phone every day but not the same as seeing her.

HAL  I think it was Shirley who mentioned the Vicks.  Since then I have read it on some health tips. Stew or soup is what is called for on these cold days.

JANE  taking advantage of sales and discounts and stocking up is smart. I try to do that as much as I can, too.

LLOYD  you learned a lesson about drinking and driving, too bad more people never lean that.

Soda Shoppe / Re: Soda Shoppe for December 15,2017

Good morning everyone, according to the weather we are at 6° now and snow is in the forecast and will be here later. Another stay inside day. All next week it is supposed to stay this cold. Tomorrow night they are having a big new year celebration in Providence and they are already telling people who go to bundle up in layers because it will be colder yet. They have a big party there every year but I sure would not want to be in that crowd.

JOY  my heat is included in my rent. One reason the manager wants it no higher than 68. I just pay my electric and is summer it gets high with the AC running. I am on the south side of the building and I do like it cool in summer.

PHYLLIS  have not seen you pop in in a looooong time. You are missed. Hope you are well. I sure have missed you.

LLOYD  gosh in this cold I only have a warm blanket to cuddle with.

SHIRLEY  this is the first year that I do not enjoy winter, must be getting old ya think?

HAL  43° would feel like a heat wave here. Hope you cold is on it's way out.

MARY ANN  like you we will be in the deep freeze temperatur es all week again. Have not seen many walking around the parking lot the last week. I know I have not gone outside since Christmas day and that is not like me.

LARRY  I have to depend on the CNAs that come here to cook for me. About the only thing I can make is my oatmeal in the mornings. I add it to the boi‌ling water, shut the burner off and put a cover on the pan and set the timer for 15 minutes  and it is cooked. Don't know about Pat but I lay on the couch for at least 30 minutes in the afternoon just to rest my back. If I don't I am in agony. I have not checked out windows 10 yet but 7 will only be supported a few more years and will have to use 10 then if I am still around.

JUNE  hope you feel better today.

GLORIA de  are you as tired of this cold as I am? Will be glad to see it above the freezing mark.

AMY  your new winter dance partner sounds powerful. At least here the -6° would be with wind chill. New Years eve night is supposed to be the coldest yet.

Have a good day everyone and stay warm.

Good morning everyone, hope everyone is find and dandy on this frigid winter morning. Yesterday we broke a record for the lowest high temperature on record here.We hit 10° for a high. Glad I did not have to go out. Has anyone heard anything about JOAN? I never did go back through the posts so do not know anything new about her.

CAROL  I have not been on Facebook in months.

JOY  thanks. It is great being back  on my computer again. A new learning curve for me. Everything is so different and confusing. I have both Windows 7 and 10 installed. My grandson partitioned the hard drive and I have not tried 10 yet. Right now TV says 6° bit that is from the airport and it is always colder in this area, weather guesser said it was 2° in the town I used to live in so we are most likely zero or below here. Like you I have my thermostat turned up. The manager wants us to have it no higher than 68°. She doesn't realize we seniors need it warmer than that.

JUNE  I am still trying to get through all the email that came in during the time I was without my computer. So many things I still have to install.

JENNY  great to be back here. Nice to know I was missed.

HAL  when I have a cough I like the honey lemon cough drops, they always seem to calm the coughing.

LLOYD  good morning, have a good day.

AMY  glad it is not as cold here as it is where you are.

JANE  have a good day at Wally World. Is it still busy with the after Christmas returns and sales?

Soda Shoppe / Re: Soda Shoppe for December 15,2017

Good morning everyone,
feels like the north pole here. Below zero overnight is starting to be normal. Been years since we have had such a long cold snap. According to the forecaster it will be another week of this.

MARY ANN  My daughter has to use her smart phone and her iPad for every thing. They are off the grid, they have to supply their own electricity and every thing. For internet/cable they have the dish.
Prayers for your niece.

CALLIE  those darn squirrels will find a way to get anything left for birds. They found a way to get up to my second floor feeder. I would glance out the window and see one in the feeder, they never could get at the suet cage that was hanging from the eves.

JUNE  my grandson studied computers in college and that is his job. He does dislike working on them on his own time but for his Dad and me he will do it.

AMY  my grandson told me Tuesday when he was here that his snowblower died at the end of his using it to clear his place. Hope he can find a new one.

SHIRLEY  I still have 7 installed, too. I will use that more but will slowly learn 10. I think that with the new hard drive things will be better now-fingers crossed. The air here is very dry now, unusual but at least for now no freezing rain. Bright sunshine but it is so cold it is not melting any of the snow from Christmas morning.

LLOYD  when I think of what id used to do a few short years ago I really dislike not being able to do much of anything anymore.

JANE  those looseleaf binders are great. Did you think of getting those plastic sleeves to put the recipes in? They come with the holes in them to go in the binders. I have used them for years. I got them at Staples but think they could be found in many stores. Glad your BIL Jim is doing better. I know you think of him like a brother.

AMY  glad I am not in Canada where it is colder than here but I wish you would stop sending your temperatures to us. Yes I know it is coming from the atrtic and you are trying to share with us. Canada does not really have to be that generous.

HAL  joys of getting old is a myth. A joy when one is in pain and cannot walk without some kind of help,etc?  At times maybe the alternative would be welcome? Not for me though, I still like life and enjoy seeing my great grandson so much. I would love being around to see him grow up like I did his father and my son.

LARRY  like your wife I cannot  stand at the sink or counter to prepare food. I have a strong wood TV tray set up in the kitchen and I sit at that to prepare what I can. The counters and sinks are all too high in this building for all the short folks that live here.

MARY ANN  here at noon it is 8° but there is still the wind chill making it feel like below zero. I will not be going out for a walk.
There are only few tall enough that they do not bother. This is a handicap apartment but is not very accessable where needed.

Good brrrr morning everyone. Coldest  we have seen this winter so far. Will not be going out for fresh air today. Must be getting old, not liking
winter this year and that is a first. It is all of 4° and wind chill is below -10°.  I spent time after leaving here yesterday trying to learn Win. 10, quite a bit to learn. Quite different from 7 that I used since it was first released. I do have that installed, too. Tried signing into that this morning but it would not accept my password.

So good to be back here again. Thank you my cyber friends for the welcome back. It has been lonesome without coming in here every day. I wished I had someone's phone number but the only one I had was Joan's
and that was from Florida.

CALLIE  I am happy to be back again.

MARY ANN  sure hope this lemon PC makes no more problems.

AMY feels great to be "home" again.

JANE   I never answer my phone unless I recognize the number or a name, I let  my answering machine take it before I answer. So many crank calls and phishing ones. My daughter still has a San Diego area code on her iPhone.

JUNE   my thanks t0 my grandson can never be enough, especially since he does not like working on computers away  from his work hours since he works on computers at his job.

HAL  I missed everyone here so much. When my son came for me Christmas morning it was cold and windy and snowing so hard it was hard to see across the road.

LLOYD  looks like we are both in the deep freeze with this cold and wind.

AMY  still warmer here than you have, that is really the deep freeze.

LARRY  glad to be back at last. Hea ted seats, when my son picks me up 
the seat is already heated and I ask him to turn it off. I think it will take
time for me to get used to 10.

JOY  it is great to be back at alst. I had my son bring me home around 4 in the afternoon, I was exhausted and I wanted to leave before mu DIL's family descended on them. They are wonderful people and I know all of them but I can no longer take all the noise and chatter.

Hello Everyone, my grandson just left and first thing
is getting here to S&F to let you know I am still here
in the land of the living. I have missed all of you so
much. Skype is now set up so maybe I will get to
see my daughter later. Right now they are heading
back to Arizon after a week in San Diego. I have not
read any posts yet and I imagine there are many
of them so do not know if I will read all of them.
My grandson installed Win 10 and partiioned the
hard drive and installed my 7 home. Have a few
hundred emails waiting for me.  too. Maybe I
should do like Shirley does. start at the end and
work backwards.
If I had anyone's phone number I w ould have
called to let you know why I was not here for much
too long. I think My grson had this PC at his house
for a month or more. He could only work on it in
his spare time.
We did have a white Christmas and when my son
came to pick me up to go to his home it was almost
a white out, remionded me of driving home in the
1978 blizzard that dropped 60 inches of snow here,
not counting the drigts we had.
Hope to see all of you in the morning.

Good morning everyone, cold and rain again today. I don't mind the cold but with the rain, too, it is damp and that I cannot tolerate good. Today we will have no hot water, repairing the hot water tank. The witch bought a cheap unknown brand and it has been nothing but trouble. On top of no hot water they fire department will be here soon to check the alarms. That is loud  but at least this time they let us know it is being done.

HAL  tried that link, put my phone number in and it said message sent with a code, phone never rang and does not have a message thing on it.

LARRY  I have not been in a store for more than 2 years now and I would love to browse in the market and BJ's (like Costco) just to see if there was something new. I know I cannot do it, every time I have an appointment I am worn out for a couple of days, Thanksgiving it took almost a week before I recuperated. Christmas at my son's will be tiring, too. I think I mentioned before every day something else is wrong on this machine. One day Skype worked and the next it wouldn't.

JENNY  I know how it feels to have family in a fire area. My daughter and family had to evacuate their home in San Diego years ago but luckily the hew freeway there were putting in a couple miles up their road stopped the fire from going the rest of the way. Prayers for your son.   

JANE  only way I can play disks is on my computer. That is one thing that still works right.

Good morning everyone, rain in the forecast again for later today. After we broke a record for the warmest Novenber here on record now the rains will be back. Rain for Friday night/Saturday might turn to snow.
The church they found there is a small one with caring people. Yesterday one of the parishioners called them for SIL to meet them at the road that leads to the ranch, he drove down there and they had brought them 4 meals, even some desserts. Never would have been done in San Diego.

HAL  I have already deleted Skype from this machine, grandson told me to try from Facebook but did no good so will try your way later. Thanks. I am beginning to wonder if it is me that keeps messing up and not the PC. Your potato cakes are what my Mom used top do and I have done it, too, but added an egg.. Love them. At times I would add some sharp Cheddar cheese just for a difference.

JUNE  don't blame you, I would not like brains either. I remember my parents liking blood pudding, just the thought turned me off.

HAL  we really feel it when something happens to our children. Like my daughter not telling me about the cancer till the operation was over. The doctor said they got every thing so I pray he is right and it does not return. I feel worse that I cannot be there with her. My SIL has been doing housework and laundry and washing dishes and watching over her. Things he has never done in 43 years of their marriage.

SHIRLEY  for the first time I am not looking forward to cold weather. Maybe once I see the beauty of snow I will get the old love of winter return, hope so.

AMY  my SIL has always been good to my daughter but what he is doing now is something I never expected.

JANE  we always look forward to a child coming for a visit but so sad when they leave for home again.

LLOYD  God sure has taken care of you.

Good moirning everyone, sun is shining bright today but windy and cold. After such a warm fall we were spoiled and not ready for cold. This is the first time the cold is bothering me and it is not winter yet. Maybe this year I will hibernate and not go out at all. Could be I will have to get myself a very warm jacket, the one I have has kept be warm a couple of years but who knows??

HAL  beautiful version, thanks for the link.

AMY  you sound like my daughter. No matter what store she goes in she knows what she wants and heads there and out ASAP. Once I got into a store I enjoyed looking around.

HOORAY  there was JOAN yesterday. JOAN  you are so missed.

GLORIA de  when I talked to my daughter yesterday she sounded great.She even went outside and walked around near their house for a bit.

JOAN  we all miss you big time. Sorry you are not doing so hot but know you are fighting to get better and home again.

JUNE  I feel like you today. If my CNA was not coming I would stay in nightie and robe all day.

SHIRLEY   my little great grandson has so many toys he cannot play with all of the. My son's living room is full of them, too. I was hoping my grson would pick up my PC over the week end but they might have gone to pick out a Christmas tree. I do miss Skype especially now, would like to see how R is looking.

LARRY  vinegar is great for many things. I know some who will drink a shot of cider vinegar every night ans say it helps a lot. I worked with one man who after all the pickles were out of a jar he would keep it and drink some of it every night. That would taste better with the spices in it.

Good morning everyone, I am wondering if my grandson will come and pick up my PC today. As bad as it is I will miss getting in here for several days. Just want to make sure you all know I am OK and have not left my favorite place.
 Talked to my daughter yesterday and she sounded great, more like herself. Good neighbors where she lives, a few brought meals for them, enough for several days. Not many there and they are not close to each other either. They can see the house of the closest one across a valley. None close enough to look at what they are doing. When we had our house neighbor used to look into the kitchen window from his porch. One time my daughter was standing on a chair and I was pinning up the hem of a dress she looked up and saw him looking in and she waved and the jerk waved back.

JOY  know how you feel about getting a hair cut. My DIL came and cut mine a couple of weeks ago and it sure is easier to handle now. I was getting to look like a halloween witch. This manager has been here for almost 4 years and she is only the second one here. This building is only 11 years old.

JENNY  yesterday my daughter said she had one spot that hurt a little but not bad. She is not taking any of the pain pills they gave her either. She is another like Shirley and does not like meds. I had been meaning to ask you if you checked out Joe on FB but see now that he has said nothing about her. I know I miss her a lot and know we all do. It just is not the same without her.

JANE  about the only thing I made that might be4 called a casserole was lasagna and folowed the recie on the box of pasta but used my own sauce. I really dislike all the ones in the jars.

JUNE  my Mom had me gargle with warm water with salt and vinegar. Vinegar is great for killing germs.  Might not taste great. Do you have any honey? a spoonful in your mouth and just let it trikle down, don't just swallow it all at once. My daughter has to go back to the doctor in 3 weeks to get checked out. They have plans on going to San Diego for Christmas to see their sons and friends.

CALLIE  the CNS I have on Fridays wanted to put my tree up Friday but I would not let her. I really have no room for it and if I decide to put it up is will be a few days before Christmas and it will come down right after, too.

AMY  my SIL has never been one to do any household things but yesterday he did the laundry and hung it out, brought it in and my daughter sat and folded every thing. He even did the dishes. He is always good to her and this proves he saw what she did.

LLOYD  like Nancy I worry about every one and every thing. Does no good and cannot change anything.

LARRY  no internet problems here but every Saturday cable acts up.  I so dislike Cox and complaining to them does no good at all.

HAL  getting colder here now but the sun is shining.
