  1. I've made friends by regularly going to the dog park. It seems like doing fun activities can lead to friends -- although it takes time. Patience is key.
  2. Hi Everyone, I'm hoping we can share fun ideas for one of my favorite holidays! Please share: Decor ideas Food Best fireworks to buy -- we're in GA Anything else! ๐ŸŽ‡๐Ÿงจ๐ŸŽ† And TIA!! Alley
  3. It would be smart to call and get an appointment w/ an orthopedist today. The teaching hospitals are booked so get on their schedule now -- then if you don't need the appointment, just cancel! Thanks for that purple pillow idea -- I need something to sit on at the dog park!! Ally
  4. The Wonderful Mrs. Maisel!!!! ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒน๐Ÿฅ‚
  5. I've had lower back problems for last 10 yrs. Long story short: if you're at all nearish to a teaching hospital like a UC in CA, Vanderbilt in TN or Emory in Atlanta etc. -- see an orthopedist. They often take time to get in so start the process as soon as you can. Again, at a teaching hospital. I never felt truly fixed until I went to Emory. Life is too short to spend a decade in pain. (In the meantime, sitting on ice pillows might really help. There are also heating pads made for your car's seat.) If you want more info, PM me. Hugs!! Alley
  6. Yes, Costco is excellent. They're not always about being the cheapest, but they add serious value. Alley
  7. I'd call her Beauty b/c she's so gorgeous! I love girly names b/c I had boys. I love Emma, Joy, Amelia, Sophie. I also love the name Lovey and also Kisses. I always yell kisses!! at my dog before I smother him so it once occurred to me to name a dog or kitty: Kisses. I also love River after River Song on Dr. Who. I also love names like: Pearl for her color, Jewel or Gemma (gem). What a sweetheart!! Alley
  8. I LOVE Jen Lancaster and have read every book -- thanks for the reminder!
  9. lol -- there are 75 holds at the library, but this sounds great!! ๐Ÿ‘
  10. an 88-yr-old was driving badly and set off events that totaled my mommy-van that we'd had for 16 yrs. ๐Ÿ˜ข best news: kids and shepherd were not in van. ๐Ÿ˜„ lesson learned: dogs MUST have seat belts. river would have died if he'd been w/ me. i'd only been going 40 mph. i only broke my arm -- '03 van saved me. i think air bags broke it. i love to read anything funny like 100 year year old man who climbed out window or Ove. i also love memoirs. And pachinko and free food for millionaires. both by min jin lee -- so good if you haven't read! would love suggestions! tia! alley
  11. I wrote about a large family and several trips that might appeal to many ages. I hope one or two sound good. Alley
  12. Now & Laters are vintage? Man, I feel like an old-woman. I think it's a sweet idea! Alley
  13. This podcast is free, awesome and totally based on cognitive therapy -- highly recommend. I've been listening for two years and have never spent a dime. Start with the first podcast. Alley
  14. Thank you Calming, but they do need to pass an Accuplacer test. I'm only adding this b/c I don't want future readers to misunderstand. They'll have four sections that they have to pass: two reading comprehension, one math and one algebra. If they don't pass a section, they can re-take the section in two weeks, but if they don't pass that one they're out. Again, this is for Dual Enrollment (meaning our State is picking up the cost). I don't know how it works for "regular" junior college people. I went to JC before finishing at a four-year and I think you're right if nobody -- like the State -- is paying. Basically if the State is picking up the tab, they want "good" students. . . students who can pass the Accuplacer. Alley
