Been busy here too, most of it good though. Maus is on her second round of antibio's for a bladder infection. Good news is her blood work is all normal so that was a relief. They were concerned there might be more going on than just the infection. She's feeling a lot better on the new meds too, YAY. I've been very, very tired of being up to let her out several times a night for the past month! It's been like having a newborn! Dogs are now great buddies, and cats are in charge so all is well here hehe. Looking forward to finding out what the MRI's show. End of the month is coming up quick. Yea, I weary of all the holiday crapola that they push down everyone's throat. I miss when you didn't see xmas stuff until after turkey day! Got some new meds for me too, to add to the ones already being taken, and they are helping, so that's a plus. There are some major fires around our valley so all the smoke just lays in, and winds just blow in more. It's crazy hazy out there, looks like fog most of the time! Cough Cough! I'm sure enjoying the dogs antics, and they are getting better all the time about walks. I ordered Maus a harness and a gentle leader, I've been using my aunts pinch collar and don't like it at all. She's incredibly intelligent and such a love. Both dogs got bathed and brushed on Sunday, and WOW did Maus really turn out great. Her fur is so soft and we got a ton of compliments on on the way out of the store (petsmart) and all week on walks and dog parks. She is now a prancy proud pup too, it's so cute! Her big old 98lb self prancing like a ballerina hehe. Well, that's about it here, wishing you much luck during the forthcoming holidaze craze!

Been busy, figure you are too. Am adjusting to this annoying diabetes thing, keeping busy walking dogs, living life and just enjoying most of it. Winning the lottery would ensure loving all of it though HAHA. How are you? How's kitties? My son got a new job at an Amazon warehouse, he really likes it too. Says he's never worked anyplace where employee safety is #1, and says everyone is really good to work for so that's nice. He and I go for MRI's and x-rays on Thursday, then to the neurosurgeon on the 30th. Looking forward to seeing what can be done for all this pain. Tired of pain! Annoying enough being diabetic and, ahem, getting older, much less any additional irritations! hehe. Anyway, hope all is well with you. When is your vacation? or all you already there?

I'm feeling & getting better!
Three weeks after surgery…I have to say that things are getting better. The swelling in my entire leg has gone down and the leg is starting to look much better. There is still some swelling at the knee; and it’s still discolored due to the bruising caused by the trauma. It doesn’t hurt as much as it did, and I’m able to move it more than I could a week or two ago. I have an appointment to see the surgeon this coming Tuesday morning (8/19), so we’ll just have to wait & see what he has to say about it. I’ve been working it by doing the exercises that I was given to do and getting up and walking around the house a bit. I just can’t be up on it for too long or it gets sore and I need to lie down again and ice it. My thigh is tender & sore from all the exercises I’ve been doing. I (kind of) want the next few months to go by so that my knee will be working & feeling that much better but, I’m sure it will come in due time.

Thanks for your thoughts!
Well, I’m told by my surgeon, and other members of his staff who saw me after the surgery, said that everything went very well. His P.A. told me that when they opened me up and he saw the end of my femur, it had so much calcium built up in spots and arthritis all over, he wasn’t sure if he was working on the knee of an elephant or a human. He said they reshaped the end of the bone, and straightened out my leg so that the bones were properly aligned before adding the prosthetic and then closing me up. It was two weeks ago, Thursday, and I have to say that it’s gotten slightly worse, instead of better, but then I kind of expected that it would. My leg has gone through most of the colors in a rainbow; my leg swelled to about twice the size (most of that has finally gone away but, the knee is still swollen, which is restricting my ability to bend it very much; and I can only hope that “it will get better with a tincture of time” as my thoracic surgeon said to me after my cancer surgery. I do have to say that it hurts like hell even with the medication I’m taking but, I‘m keeping a positive attitude that it will all be for the better when it’s totally healed, regardless of how long it takes.

Today is my kind of day. Well, it's not chilly but it's very grey and RAINY! Not much falling yet but it's getting there! YAY! I've read about the cars being destroyed by the chemicals in winter over there. Must be getting a kick back from the car manufacturers to allow such things to happen. Politics...Anyway, doing ok so far. Been busy with pets and mostly feeling better. I have a sweet tooth as well, seems like fresh fruit has really helped that craving though, which is nice. Well, the day has let me know things NEED to be done. Wishing you a lovely one, very cool about the new 'goo' critter hehe. HUGS.

Been feeling better so have been busier around the house. Found out I'm diabetic, so have been on these crazy huge pills 2x day for the past 2 weeks and the other day I realized I feel better! Go to a neurosurgeon on the 12th for my neck, excited and nervous about that. After too many years of pain, it'll be nice to see what can be done and what exactly is wrong. I know why, just don't know what. Years of working in shoddy offices taking calls while holding the phone on my shoulder destroyed my neck! Other than that, life has been pretty good around here. We're enjoying the kids, pets, weather - well, mostly - and life in general. It's been a pretty mild summer so far, only a few triple digit days and mostly lots of clouds, even a little rain. How's the car? How are you? When do you go on vacation? How's the kitties? HUGS!

Wish me luck!
Well, here I go! I'm headed for New York City this Thursday morning (July 24) for a few days stay at HSS (Hospital For Special Surgery) as I'm about to get a Total Knee replacement on my right knee. Wish me Luck!

This is supposed to be one of the best hospitals in the country for this type of surgery. The hospital is known for joint repair & replacement (mostly joints of the extremities). Many of the doctors are team physicians for Professional & Olympic teams including the NY Giants & NY Nets to name a few. Their logo is "Where the World comes to get back in the game!"

I'm supposed to be in the hospital for a few days then I'll be out of work for 4-8 weeks. (So I should be able to spend a little more time on the site during my time at home.) I'm told that it will take about a year for total recovery but, I should start to feel better by the time I'm ready to go back to work.

As for the aquarium...things are doing OK. I have one fish that has been a bully toward another one (same species) and it's managed to nibble away at the tail and dorsal fins of the poor fish it's been beating on; and now, the (one being picked on) hides all the time. I've also lost a few others of different varieties. It seems I've hit the max number of fish; every time I put a new one into the tank either it or another fish in the tank dies. AHHH, the balance of nature!

I need to replace my light fixture, too! About a week days ago the tank light failed to operate properly, after I took it apart I found that there was no way to repair it so, I need to buy a replacement hood. My search of the lfs produced nothing I was looking for, so I turned to the internet & one of my favs (Pet Mountain) and hit a home run with a single bulb unit for $57.99. Luck was with me because they're having a 50% sale and this is one of the items on sale! I'll need to order a few other things to make the total large enough ($75) for free shipping. That shouldn't be too hard, lol!

Well, I hope you have a great summer; and I'll post an update when I get home from the hospital.

I can relate to a cat being a brat about litter box. Our old cat, who's going to be 19 or is it 20? Anyway, she will pee in the heater vents of the bathrooms and the laundry room, which is NOT fun to clean out AT ALL. So I keep raggedy towels and rugs with no backing over them all and just do a load of nasty once or twice a week. The worst is, 2 of the vents are near litter boxes! NO EXCUSE! But she's old, a brat and we are knowing that if she survives this winter, it will be her last. She's just getting skinnier again, and is just OLD. And I noticed a few of her back teeth are getting bad, but at her age, she'd never go for a cleaning or survive anesthesia and well, sorry to be mean but the cost and risk isn't worth it to us. She is still busy, keeps all of us in line but yea, the whole cleaning up after her several times a day gets really really old! I use Nature's Miracle in the orange bottle to clean up and it does a great job of getting rid of cat pee, btw. Anyway, other than that all is pretty ok around here, busy but also having to take life very easy. We're on the hunt for a puppy, cuz i don't have enough mouths to feed HAHA. Guess that's it for now, will try to catch up more soon! HUGS!

Busy life, but most of it pretty dern good over all. No luck on a new dog yet, but we've enough to keep us busy as it is. The perfect one will happen when it's meant to be. I'm taking my mom to her first cataract surgery today, she's looking forward to, well, looking hehe. Been busy with pets, video games, reading, tv marathons (how I enjoy Netflix hehe) and chores. I just realized, I've never had a vacation without a kid or several either. That will be weird for you I bet!

It's sunny and warm, almost too warm but the breezes are medium fast with a touch of chill to them. This is my idea of summer weather if it's not going to rain hehe. Glad to hear cars are working out. So sorry to hear about kitty! In all my life, my Rottie Mo was the only dog that ever really cost me anything vet wise. Old cat is almost 20 and she's had a handful of colds in her life, and that's it! Loki is super healthy, Elfi very much so - oh and turns out she's Australian Kelpie, not G.Shepherd! - and so we aren't worried about vets much. Elfi is doing great, her and Loki have become very good friends now, they even nose bump! OMG it's so cute! And Elfi LOVES car rides, but not stoplights. We're going to try to video her doing her woesome sad yodel thing cuz you will not believe the noise she makes when the car isn't moving! She's a riot! Loud, but hilarious indeed. I still think she'd like another pup to have around, and we might look at a rescue this weekend. 8 year old Rottie female who lived with same family all her life until they got another dog and decided they didn't want to feed her anymore! I cried when I saw her story! I really wish some people would just not have pets. Just really. Or that I could stab them in the eye with a hot wire. Yea, I'm mean like that. We might not have much but we sure love our pets and always find a way. I was a single mom making 10.50 an hour, 2 kids, Stanley, Goose, a ferret and whatever else needed to be fed. We didn't live rich but I'd NEVER give up a pet for a move. Stanley and Goose survived 17 moves in 8 years. Some were horrid places we had to leave quick, but again, we kept all our pets and we found a way. Then we met awesome BF and he fell in love with all our pets and now we have our home and new pets. Well, still have mean old Goose! We've been 'enjoying' a nasty tummy viral thing that's been going around. Not an unhappy 24-48hrs then you're weak but ok again, oh no, this is like a 7-10 day thing where you wonder if you will ever be able to stomach toast and bananas after 3 days of them hehe. Oh well, a little purge is good for you now and again HAHA. Well, hope all this fit. And hope all of you are enjoying your week!

Wishing you the best day, and coming year, for your birthday! I hope all is well with you and your family!

Unfortunately, in the wee hours of march 25th, I took my male min pin out to the backyard to take care of business and on the way back to the house I tripped & fell; dog in arms. I managed to fall on my right knee, the back of my right wrist (I was still holding onto the dog) and did a face plant into the fieldstone patio I built. I must have fallen onto the dogs open mouth as I had several puncture wounds in my lower lip which immediately swelled up to about twice normal size. I got a few scrapes on the forehead and a cut on the bridge of my nose from my glasses. Both the nose and lip bled profusely. I walked back into the house and cleaned up the wounds and checked the dog over (thankfully, no injuries) and went back to bed. However, walking on my right leg the following morning wasn't happening. I injured my knee playing high school football years ago. I had an operation back in 1972 for torn cartilage and my knee hasn't been very good since then. I've been hobbling around on crutches and plan to return to work (still on crutches) tomorrow.
I'm thinking it's time to get the total knee replacement I've been trying to avoid. I'm doing my research to find the best or second best doc in the field for knee replacements. And...I have lots of concerns. after all, it means cutting the ends off of three bones then gluing metal rod ends for the socket into the bone that's left in my leg. I'm concerned that I might not be able to ride any more for fear of damaging the replacement, leaving me without a leg to stand on!

Enough of that stuff!
I managed to get the tank cleared of algae. I spoke with a woman working at "Guppies to Puppies" in Saybrook. She suggested turning off the lights and leaving the tank in darkness for a few days, which did the trick. I then changed out the décor and did a 75% water change and filter cleaning. I followed up with a couple more 50% water changes and so far, so good! The fish are all doing well with the exception of one Bolivian Ram that became sushi the other day!

Take care, stay safe and enjoy your Birthday on Monday!

Forgot about red ring of death. Sounds like a crazy ringworm based infection hehe. It has gone red a few times, but always came back, but alas, it won't do much of anything now except taunt you with the fact that it no longer wants to be played with. I'd like to think my Thu'um had something to do with that as I do play loud. Not as in the game is loud, I myself laugh, yell and um, childishly cuss at my games, much to the chagrin of all around me as well, I laugh so hard when I get killed sometimes I go back and die again hehe. Like when the dragons would grab and eat me, FUNNY! Voracious reader, that's me. I started reading on my own at age 3 and have never stopped. I can read anywhere from 1-3 novels a day on average. You know, that whole never sleep thing means games and books are my life. I'm up to about 35 books in the past 2 weeks...lucky my bf is just as bad, so he and I are all kinds of boring, reading together like true geeks. It's why we hooked up to begin with, our common love of several books. Well, I need to find some breakfast and it's already time for lunch. Never can get that time frame thing correct it seems! Oh, I made brownies last night, SCORE! So sorry to hear about the car. It's crazy how it's always one thing after another sometimes. Wishing you much luck with that indeed.

Been busy. Then, the xbox died. As in DEAD. Think it just needs a new hard drive but maybe it's really dead. Will figure that out later. Always have my Wii games so not like I'm totally without game time. BUT have been catching up on reading. As in almost 20 books in 6 days now. Oh, did I mention I can't sleep? hehe. You know I really never sleep anyway so no biggie. it's why I'm always so grateful to have bf though, he never pushes for me to be anything but what I am. YAY! I am working on some serious chores though so I can get that art room going. Half the battle of that though is having my daughters stuff stored in there so space is now really limited and I'm a many irons in the fire type person as you have to wait for things to dry etc etc anyway so not like you can do one project in a day usually. She's coming home soon though so that will get figured out quickly enough. Weather is still weird here, went out to transplant a dog wood that wasn't doing well and the sky blessed me with snow flurries! Except it's not really chilly out at all. I almost did it in my slippers even but realized shoveling in slippies is not safe for toes hehe. Anyway, have missed you and FC in general but sure am having a ball with reading lately. I do tons of reviews so it works out great for me as many authors are wonderful at giving me books to 'test drive' for them so that's always great too. There are so many clever folk out there that I'm so happy to be a part of their world indeed. Well, hugs to you, wishes for healthy cats and cars and hope you are doing well!

sunny, warm, spring day. I hated it! hehe. Did more chores, ugh, played Scrabble with my neighbor and did some errands. Had to wait for bf to get home as we're currently a one car family for a bit. ugh. but only another week of annoying money issues then things will balance out again. Feb is always a hard month for us, too many things come due, quarterly things and yearly things and trying to get it all sorted and paid is always a chore plus having car repair issues on top of it all, UGH. Life, always something! Skryim disc got taken to a local gaming store for a buffing/cleaning as last night it totally decided to tell me the disc isn't readable any more. Now, I could understand it if I hadn't had it in the machine for days and just popped it in, I was playing for crying out loud, it was readable a second ago! So the local place was awesome, and said if it still won't work they'll help me do the replacement thing if indeed the disc got a glitch. We'll try deleting off the xbox and reloading again first. Which means I have to start a whole new character...I am on my 5th now and this was to be the last one as it was doing so great! I got things done correctly and was having a ball. I only just started over less than a week ago for crying out loud and am tired of some of the things I have to keep doing over! Tough life I lead, I know! Actually been busy with lots of 'spring cleaning' and other things, can't spend all my time lazing about playing games you know! That whole gotta earn my keep thing always looming over my head. Bf is great about interjecting and/or helping when I game, he laughs at me cuz I jump when things come attack me and well, yea, the whole gaming thing makes me laugh indeed. I have a few books that make me jump too after all these years hehe. I'm such a chicken! Well, hope you are in for a nice weekend!

Now here it is, second week of March. I wasn't ready! OUCH on the wallet with the vet med, wow. I do recommend checking into WalMart pharmacy for any vet meds, they carry a lot around here and well, while I'm not a wally fan, I have to admit their Rx staff and prices were/are top notch. Even got my mom to switch from CVS to Wally and she's saved over a hundred bucks in only a few months which she's very happy about. She doesn't get a lot of money a month so every penny counts, like it does for us all. Weather is finally spring like this afternoon. Been cold, windy, sorta rainy then more windy for a week now. Wish it was super rainy, but alas, it is a desert after all. We did get a few days of really good rain a few weeks ago, boy was I happy! Till I had to sweep and clean up after pets in and out all those pets though! Have been busy around the house and enjoying being home. Trying to catch up while having all my fur helpers has been interesting at best hehe. Elfi is my shadow and Loki is a MaMa's Boy and they are both convinced the broom is out to get me. They might be right hehe. Well, need to decide on either going to bed or playing a game for awhile. I don't sleep much, and even when I do, after maybe 5 hours of being in bed I have to get up, so always a toss up as to whether I want to be up way too early or stay up way too late hehe. Need to get my herbal sleep thingies, they really do help. Not for prolonging, but good at letting me actually sleep instead of that dreaded twilighting where I can here the refrigerator come on downstairs, or the dog breathing...stupid stuff that isn't even loud or annoying, just my brain on stupid mode hehe. The joys of being bipolar, (have been since before it was 'cool') means my head is like having 5 tv's on, all of them on a different channel and too loud, and I swear a few of them are some language unknown to me hehe. I think it's why I like rain so much, it soothes and I always sleep wonderfully when it rains. Been thinking about getting one of those sound machine thingies that plays ocean or rain or other noises. Might be worth trying out. How is your weather now? How is the car? The cat? The kid? hehe, I'm way behind and am now trying to catch up, all at once hehe. Sure hope you have a good week!

So sorry your son wasted so much time and gas just to get sent home! We are currently hoping the winds are bringing in the predicted 'nasty' storm this weekend. I'm about to play Skyrim, decided to see if my glitch is fixable or if I'll be doing yet another character, cuz I have no life hehe.

I have a Question for you
I have this 30 gallon tank with 2 silver tinfoil fish and 1 jewel cichlid and 1 red jewel cichlid. well my 2 cichlids were fighting or it look like fighting but I could have mistaking it. because they could have been mating. I really don't know much about cichlids. but I separated the one jewel cichlid and put her in a 10 gallon and now she is stressing and the male cichlid is pist that I took her out of the tank. I'm trying really hard to find someone who knows anything about Jewel and red jewel cichlid breeding behavior and telling the difference between breeding and fighting. Do you know anything about them or know anyone that does?? Please let me know. Sincerely, fishlovertrp

Hey there! How are things going? I know it's been a while since you've heard from me, on the site. I read that you spent a few days in Maine, at Old Orchard Beach, and it seemed that you had a decent time of it. Good for you, we all need to take a step back and breath deep once in a while. Sorry to read that the car is causing problems, again! :( I Hope things get better for you.

I know that you are a salty, but I thought I'd attach a wee plea in the thought that you might know where I could find some help. I’m looking for some help with identifying something that has taken over my tank, and what I need to do to eradicate it. This is a teal colored growth that has grown on the leaves of the plants, rocks and other ornamentals. It grows very fast, I think it was about a week or less from the time I noticed it, to having everything in the tank being covered with this stuff. Its low growing, covering everything in a thin sheet of growth, and has a velvet like appearance to it. It seems to be very fragile and breaks apart easily, which seems to be the way it has the ability to spread and grow so fast. A friend told me that he thought it was some type of bacterial growth and that he had it once in his tank. He went on to explain that he could peel it off the ornaments and that it smells real bad. He said that he used Erythromycin it clear it up. I’m looking for concurrence; and I’d really like to know what it is that has invaded my tank. I’m also concerned for the health of the fish; and my wife & I as we are consuming the water from the same source I use in the tank. Attaching some photos to my blog page. Thanks for any help or insight you can give me.

Friday the 13th? I think it's kind of cool.

The critters are doing great. I'm glad you liked the video I posted. Those two are such a fun and mismatched pair!

And Pippin is the boss. Yep, all 200lbs of him! Eddie weighs 10 times that much but he's a softy.

Lily's (the doe that died) sister came last week. Her name was and will remain, Ellie! Pretty similar, huh? And she was named by them without knowing what we named Lily.

She looks a lot like Lily but is smaller. She's a bit skittish but we can already see her sweet personality. Widget, the goat who was best friends with Lily, went insane when she heard the truck drive up with Ellie bleating.

I think she was convinced that Lily had returned home. Poor Widget. However, she seems to be taking to Ellie quite readily. She needs a friend her age.

You asked if we have donkeys. No. Not yet!:) I would love to have one. They're utterly adorable and I could drive one with Pippin! Of if we got a mammoth one I could drive that with Eddie.

They cross the mammoth donkeys with draught horses to make some huge mules. There are quite a lot of gigantic mules in our valley.

How's the finger? And your cold? My sinus infection was getting better but it came back with a vengeance. So, I'm on antibiotics yet again. Sigh!

I hope you're having a nice weekend. Any more visit to Liz? Leaving a vote for you.

Come visit me, Pond Creature (Rest in peace, Melian).

Thanks for the vote
Thanks for keeping me up & running. Life's been way to busy lately to get on this site or any length of time. The 2nd week of July (Africa hot week) we took a bike ride to Lake George. With the exception of the heat, we had a great time and are looking into the next trip. Work is a four letter word! Need I say any more about that? Actually, I've been doing 10 hr days on M,T & TH and 5 hr days on W & FR. As long as I'm not being told to do so, I'm going to do it! I've taken on another project that's been consuming most of my time at home, I'm reconditioning a 40ish yr old canoe that once belonged to my dad. I've had it for a good number of years, and decided that it was time to make the repairs it needs and get it back on the water again.
The fish are all doing well, and I keep trying to get just one more in there...especially if it's another one of my "Gotta have it!" list.

It's getting late & I'm off to bed!


Come visit me, Pisciculi.
