  1. They have the right to protest and my daughter who is a nurse (treating covid 19 patients) should have the right to refuse to treat them if they should get sick. While they are protesting to go to gym/beach/restaurants healthcare workers are self isolating at home or staying at hotels to lessen chance of infecting their families. I think they should all be forced to spend a day in the hospital and see what it’s like to be asked by patients “am I going to die’”.
  2. I make crazy big food orders and get about 1/2 of what I order. To improve my odds I order a 2 pound bag of flour and a five pound bag and hope I get at least one. I also order the same item from different brands and cross my fingers. I shop at King Soopers and they put a hold on credit card then charge me after I pickup.
  3. Update: Teeth not done due to vet limiting surgeries due to coronavirus. Daisy (the cat) was not eating so $700 later they think she has a heart murmur plus redid blood test to check for other issues and sent her home with antibiotics. Adding to the stress is my daughter is a nurse in the hospital during this very difficult time. Good thoughts appreciated.
  4. Happy happy update!!!! The bloodwork came back with no issues with thyroid, liver or kidneys!! She is going to keep the cat (Daisy) and the whole family is going to chip in and help cover dental costs. I’m a cat grandma!!! **The $300 fee included spaying. I agree it was high but for her area it is what all rescues charge. Some charged even more!
  5. That is the nicest thought ever! I’m at a loss for words. Thank you.
  6. My 23 yo daughter just adopted her first cat from a local shelter. They had 2 videos online of the cat, one said she was 4 and one said 5. Her adoption paperwork said 2. She took cat to vet for checkup after adoption and vet said cat was 7-8 based on eye condition (comes with age?) Cat also had several cracked teeth and bleeding gums.Surgery is needed and estimate is $800-$1300 They also did bloodwork for $200 plus fees for exam (around $75) She paid $300 adoption fee to shelter. She is now in for $600 plus surgery costs and has owned cat for less than a week..
  7. My daughter graduated from a top rated freshman admit nursing program. She can attest that coming from a strong program, both the NXCLEX and her job at a top 20 hospital are so much easier compared to her peers who did not attend a program of equal caliber. This is preparation and foundation for your entire career. Be sure to go to a school with at least a 90% NCLEX pass rate. At the end of the day nursing school is a marathon, not a sprint.
  8. YouTube has an endless supply of House Hunters episodes. I cut the cord years ago and if you look at TLC, NBC, ABC, Food Network etc you can get tons of free tv. I forgot to add www.dailymotion.com Really good for Below Deck (bravo) and 90 Day Fiancé (TLC) My guilty pleasures!
  9. We have Crohns, gluten intolerance and IBS in my family. I have been dairy free most of my life. I’m just lucky like that!! I have IBS and Lactose free products still make me sick. I haven’t had red meat in 25 years (makes me seriously ill), my crohns child can’t eat red meat either. We try to avoid fried foods. Sounds like IBS to me. Any meal ending with ice cream would send me running to bathroom. I tend to eat many smaller meals to keep the peace. Definitely worth checking in with gastroenterologist.
  10. Caesar’s Palace is my favorite place to stay. Great location and the rooms are beautiful. Beautiful restaurant- https://pamplemousselerestaurant.com/
  11. You need a good dermatologist preferably one who specializes in allergies/environmental stuff. My regular dermatologist sent me to a specialized dermatologist for allergy testing. I’m allergic to gold (plus all metals) It took a year of being jewelry free to be eczema free. My son had allergy testing and milk was causing his eczema.
  12. I have owned both. My Subaru forester was way better in the snow. My Honda was much more mechanically sound.
  13. I mentioned this to my daughter who just graduated with her BSN. She said she is not surprised by the professors stance. She said it was exactly the same with her nursing classes, students had to either change the interview time or take your chance missing class. She has several friends applying to medical school who have graduated and are now working. They are under the same stress, having to miss work to do an interview. One of her friends is scrambling to get someone to cover their work shifts so they can do interviews (three so far).
  14. We like www.minimalistbaker.com and www.skinnytaste.com
  15. My son has been getting infusions at infusion center for several years. I get a letter like you get plus an additional cover letter that says you are approved for X amount of infusions from April to October (for example).
  16. I’m a beeper. It doesn’t matter what I’m wearing or what kind of scanner, I beep. I had back surgery 20 years ago and I’m convinced that’s the reason. I wear leggings, shirt and slip on sneakers. I have been patted down, wand, have them feel inside waistband. I fly around in/out of huge airports and have never paid for pre check service. I always give myself enough time to account for long lines. I’ve flown twice this summer and overheard them say that every person with food in carry on will be stopped. They were even writing down persons name on a sheet.
  17. I returned a year old backpack and received same item back. Didnt they change their lifetime guarantee warranty?
  18. I’m 5’4 and went from 220 to 165. I’ve kept it off for 6 years. Exercise (swimming, walking, exercise videos), weight watchers and lots of determination.
  19. I’ve thought about what music to play (Frank Sinatra), what color everyone should wear (pink) but not the food. Definitely black/white cookies. Now I have to get menu planning! 😆
  20. Ithaca College has an automatic acceptance into their grad school program if you do speech as an undergrad.
  21. I paid $$$ to a lice place only for them to come back. Personally I don’t think they ever left!! Google using Cetaphil soap, Dump a bottle on your hair, comb through, leave on overnight, rinse, pick out dead nits, repeat in a couple of days. I did no extra washing, vacuuming, etc and they were gone forever.
  22. We have been to that Friendlys many times. I grew up with Friendlys and was so excited to have my kids eat at one. Makes me miss Howard Johnson’s. Anybody remember them?
