Marilyn, it is hard to break in a new doctor, especially when we are not longer "spring chickens".  My long-time doctor retired in 2001, so I chose another doctor in the practice.  He left the practice in 2002 so I had to choose again.  Doctors in the practice were not accepting new patients so I went to the doctor Norm and Dot had.  He was near here and in his late 40s.  We have found over the years that he really doesn't know how to deal with old people.  Dot is/was in a lot of pain recently and may have called on his day off.  Whatever - he was not available so they suggested she see another doctor.  Our doctor did not have a name for Dot's ailment, but this sub doctor knew immediately what it was.  So she switched to him.  I haven't had any occasion to see my doctor and I think he'll outlast me, however, if I would have something serious that would be beyond his capabilities, I think I would search for a new doctor.  He is the one who ignored my symptoms of A-Fib.  I try not to go to a doctor if I can help it.

I had another PT treatment today and he had me do some things other than what I had done last week.  One I remember doing 40-50 years ago and I don't remember why I was having the therapy.  We will add that to what I have been doing.  He told me my arm would be sore from what I did today and I believe him - it is sore already.  I like to think progress is being made.

We have had rain all day and the temperature is at 60 degrees.  There was heavy fog this morning and Tom said it was terrible trying to avoid pot holes.  Usually with fog the sun comes out, but the rain continued, so it was strange to see fog where we usually don't see it - in low areas. 

Gloria, a few years ago, I thought I was losing hair because when I washed my hair, I could see my scalp.  It may have been because of my white hair.  But I seems to have a good head of hair now.  My hair dresser and I discuss my problem of the left side where it seems to straighten out and there is nothing that can be done with it.  Today it looks good and maybe tomorrow, but by Thursday, it will look bad.  The woman who cut my hair for over 30 years had trouble with it too.

Patricia, my password list is in a little notebook that I keep with my flash and external drives.  I also disconnect my external drives and flash drives when I'm not using them.

Jack, our temps are in line with yours, only lower.  Today is 60, tomorrow 38, then 27, then the temps start going up again to 44 degrees Saturday.  Our sixty isn't as nice as it sounds because it has rained all day.  We have a flash flood watch until 5 pm Wednesday.  What is interesting is the fog; it is in low areas, not necessarily near water.  Without sun, the fog has stayed all day.  We've lost a lot of snow but I know there is more to come - right around the corner!

Patricia - When my long time ENT doctor retired, I had a hard time finding a new one who would take Medicare. I went without for a long time, but when I got this paralyzed vocal cord problem, I had to see someone.  Finally, an older doctor agreed to see me, and I do like him.  Problem of course, is that he is old and will be retiring soon . . .  and then what? :(  I'm thinking that I won't get a new cardiologist at all now, but will wait until I really need one.  Maybe not the wisest move on my part, but right now I don't really care that much.

We've just had a new weather alert claiming heavy snow, freezing rain and low visibility for both summits and valley beginning this Thursday and continuing through the weekend. Two of our four main highways haven't reopened since the last storm! We are told that more trees may break under yet more snow and ice causing more outages. I hate winter or at least this winter!

Good morning from a windy Interior! We've dropped from the thirties and early forties to a high of 24 today. The wind is blowing the heavy snow off the birch trees, and they are popping back up from their bent over positions, some of them in a startling fast manner.

I like the lower temperatures because the higher ones tend to bring freezing rain and ice storms. We have become more like Anchorage in rainforest country then we've been as part of the Arctic. We are however expecting to go back up temperature wise on the weekend. Formerly February was always when we had a severe cold. It hasn't happened that way in the last five to eight years.

Larry, I'm glad you are feeling better and more like usual. But I hate to tell you that LastPass was hacked last spring and they say they've corrected the bug that allowed hackers to harvest passwords. Many folks still use either the same password for everything or an easy one using phone numbers or pets names.

I use a similar service for a password manager, and I also have my passwords on my external hard drive as well as a written list. I use Dropbox, but nothing affecting my security is stored there as it is copies of articles I saved and mainly my PSP paraphernalia. I have my photos on Google but also backed up on my external drive as a failsafe. Amazon and Nook are also vulnerable to hacking, but I suppose books are easier to replace if the worse should happen. However, the business or account side might be used as a springboard to other parts of your online presence.

Nothing is failsafe these days so we can only trust in the companies we use. A large hospital paid a ransom to get vital records back after hackers gained entrance to the documents via an Alexa smart system fish tank in the lobby! Police, fire and emergency services around the country have paid records ransoms in the last three years mainly on the East coast or the Midwest.It has become an occupational hazard!

Everything that is stored on the computer has a written or external backup because I have been burned too many times. And my external drive is never left plugged in for obvious reasons. It amazes me that folks spend money on these and then leave them plugged in vulnerable to whatever happens to the central computer. My classes and classwork are too important to be left that way.

MarsGal, I've heard several people have enjoyed that movie. My sister went with her daughter and son-in-law, and they all raved about the film.

MaryAnn, I hope those PT exercises will help after all the pain you have suffered previously.

Marilyne, I am having very similar issues trying to find new doctors here as so many I've used before have or will be retiring soon. Many new ones look askance at seniors with Medicare as it only brings in 70 cents on the dollar. I've heard many services have a Medicare and Medicaid limit or they don't take that patient at all.

Mary Ann & Gloria - It's funny how the bad weather switches back and forth from coast to coast.  I see that today is predicted to be in the 60's, 70's and even the 80's (as Larry said), along the East Coast and into parts of the Midwest.  Here we are having freezing temperatures, and even snow in some areas!  We're surrounded by mountains and foothills, and usually see snow on the peaks, a few times during the Winter, but almost unheard of to have snow in the valley's and flatlands.  Last time I remember snow, on the ground, in my yard, was in the 1970's.  Last night we went to 29 degrees here, which is about as low as it ever gets.  Seems Arctic, to those of us who are California natives! :o

I got a recorded message from my cardiologist this morning, saying that he is retiring on February 20th!  I had an appointment scheduled in early March, which of course has now been cancelled. I would guess that he is about 70?  No reason given for retirement.  The recorded message said that a Dr. Wang or Dr. Chow, would take over his practice, if we wanted to see either one.  I don't know what I'm going to do as yet???  I have a hard time understanding the Chinese doctors, and my husband does too.  I know they are good doctors, but it's frustrating to have a visit with a doctor, and not be able to converse with him or her.  As the older doctors are retiring here in CA, their practices are being taken by either Chinese or Indian doctors.  I think my ophthalmologist will be the next to go. :(
