  1. To be able to use it like a mouse as well as to draw with it sounds like a great idea, thanks! Hmmmm, I couldn't think of what I wanted for Mother's Day, now I know what to ask for! 😉 Ktgrok, you mentioned taking MSM. I have heard that is good to take. Can you share any positives or negatives about MSM or maybe what it did do for you? Thanks.
  2. I know you said you have felt it from using your phone a lot. I had inflammation in my tall finger for over a year and I suspect it may be arthritis coming on (I sprained this finger as a kid). My chiro suggested an ergonomic mouse, as I have been on the computer quite a bit lately. I never knew there was such a thing. I haven't bought one yet because I would like to try it out at the store, which has been impossible lately. But I am using my other hand more and changing my diet (did a water fast, stopped dairy and wheat). So yes, I would agree yours may be aggravated by more phone use. Also, when I went to my chiro for other issues, he used a laser on my finger. This was during the same week that I did the above changes. It has been 2 weeks and I am not feeling any pain, nor is it glitchy in my joint. I am not sure which change did it , or if it has been a combination, but I hope the pain stays away!
  3. Teaching3, can you edit your title to add covid or something so others will know what your topic relates to? When you said 'we', I thought you meant your family. I think it is a topic worth others weighing in on if it relates more... In a local area, they had about 13 cases before moving on to phase 2. The move was made to allow for opening for Memorial Day weekend, IMO. Guess what was announced the morning after easing restrictions? 31 new cases, 20 of which are being said to belong to a single outbreak (factory). It sounds fishy to me, as if the announcement of 31 cases was purposely not reported until the county opened up. And now they are downplaying it by saying the 20 belong to a single outbreak, as if the single means only 1 person. The news is reporting with full confidence that the workers will self quarantine and others who could have been infected have been notified. They are downplaying this so much. What about all the places these people have visited before showing symptoms with the possibility of infecting others? Seems the rules change for the powers that be, wth?!
  4. Ok, so here is a question that I am wondering. Doesn't the Bible support honoring authority, such as this: Romans 13:1-14 ESV (it is in other translations, I just copied this one, not that it is my belief) Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. I know some Christians who have prayed for our authorities over the years, even when they didn't fully agree with them. So I take it that they believe in this Bible passage. So, shouldn't the ministers of these churches set better examples by following authority? After all, God has appointed those in authority. So the ministers are going against God, no? Just a thought.
  5. Whatever you did, I hope you are applying arnica jel to the area to help prevent bruising. I messed up my thumb a few months back and got it on ice right away as well as arnica when it was dry. Kept my thumb straight up (easy for me to do as I had a long plane ride). I also bought a 'thumb stabilizer' the same day. It felt surprisingly good putting that on. You realize when you mess your thumb up how much we actually use it! BTW, my thumb ended up with only slight bruising, smaller than a dime if that. I am a believer in that jel! It was still messed up-swollen, couldn't move it...but so much better than if I had not done the above. It wasn't broken, but considered 'skier's thumb' from a fall-without the ski pole. It doesn't sound like your son fell, just got it jammed, so his injury may not be as bad as mine. I never went to the doctor, because I knew it wasn't broken and with swelling, there wasn't anything they would do at the time I figured.
  6. How ripe were your bananas when you dried them? I've only done them a few times, and probably used them when they were starting to get spots. That probably would make a difference in starchiness and sweetness. Mine always tasted plenty sweet. Some people dip them in honey, but I never needed the extra sweetness. Maybe check youtube for other suggestions?
  7. This is great, thanks for making me chuckle! My daughter is still planning on getting married in late June in Oregon, so this may have to be an option! 😉
  8. Beautiful, I love it! I'm trying to decide the same thing about my veggie beds, keeping in mind though that the sun will be higher than it is now and it will be a bit different even in another month or 2. Hope you 'eyed' the sun last year to help you with summer this year!
  9. Thanks Terabith, there are 3 that are recommended and 1 that came up I recognize as one that my former elderly neighbor used to go to. I will share with the parent.
  10. I have a student (dyslexic) that I tutor. Even though he is progressing on his reading, he still has difficulty with 1 syllable 5-6 letter short vowel words but he is getting to be a stronger sight word reader. We are working on fluency for words like: bunch, branch, strall... I have noticed in the past that it seems like his eyes jump and grab a vowel from another word, so his current word is misread with a substituted vowel. He has trouble with words like felt/flet for instance, where the letters will get transposed. The other day I had him do an eye tracking exercise with the ladybug that walks across the screen several times http://eyecanlearn.com/tracking/fixation/ . Both eyes, right, then left. He commented that when watching with the left eye, the ladybug jumps around. This would confirm my thought with his mixed letters. So in making recommendations for an eye exam, I would not think that a regular optometrist would be able to detect this problem. We live in a small town, with larger towns about an hour away. (Some vision therapists in those areas). I know some of you have had more experience with vision issues by what I have seen on the threads. Can you give me an idea of where to start for a vision when talking to the parents ?

  12. Yes, but what about employment? Let's keep as many working as we can, (in the garden type stores, etc.) and use a common sense approach when selling.
  13. Oh dear, this is not good. I have a good friend in Michigan whose daughter is ADHD, has food sensitivities as well as a host of mental health issues. Up until now, it has been very therapeutic for her to be outside working in her yard, not to mention the fact that raising her own food is a necessity to keep food allergy reactions minimized. I can't imagine what this is going to do to her! I think in the end there will be more problems as this pandemic slows related to mental health for Americans, simply because we are being too restricted. I am all for SAH, but not allowing a person to garden in their own yard by not being able to buy needed supplies is ludicrous. Gardening is so therapeutic and much needed at this time, not to mention a necessity for those with dietary restrictions or allergies to sprays, corn, wheat, dairy etc. I have seen other crazy restrictions as well. I live in rural America with a lake in front of me and a national forest in the area. I'm thinking with food shortages, what a great time to let the kids go out and fish (adults too). This would allow a way for kids to get some fresh air and exercise and give them something to do outside (as well as a much needed break from too much closeness!) Nope, we have been told fishing is closed. Ummm, you can't get much further from each other when you are out fishing! And as far as hiking, I understand some places have been super busy, but my area is usually not. On a busy day, I have seen 3 people on the trail including me. I went to get a quick walk the other day, and there was a closed sign on the board. I just feel we need to use common sense for each area, city, or state. Increased mental health issues, weight gain from sitting around the house, increased domestic violence, etc. are going to cause more problems as a result from restrictions that have not been thought out very well during this time!
  14. Yes, it's too bad the 'citizens' are posting this kind of stuff on youtube, that is sick! Thanks for your quick replies and I am sure there will be many more examples here.
