Doing much better today.

Got an actual 6 hours of sleep, and I can breathe most of the time.

We’re gaining on it!

This year’s flu vaccine? Not so good. Nationally, about 21% effective…

In this household 50%. Jane hasn’t gotten it. I did.

Respiratory crud. I am so tired of coughing.

I sent Jane off after Theraflu, which is the only thing that seems to give much relief: Nyquil, Alkaseltzer cold relief, meh. Benedryl, Sudafed PE (which is not as effective but thanks to the methheads, all we […]

The joys of computer file setup

The Dell Precision laptop is a very ‘business’ machine with practically no ‘offers of software’ included to clutter up the disc. And I decided a nice slow as I feel like it shift of files from my older laptop would be fairly easy. Add a few things, transfer files with Carbonite—this would be a piece […]

Allergy, the Pineapple Express, and pond pumps…

Waked this morning with the headache from hell after NO party last night, which is not fair at all. I still have a bit, and a nagging post-nasal drip cough. Xyrtec is good, but not that great. Benedryl plus 2 Sudafed seems a better combo for me—they used to sell it in that combination in […]

BTW, new CGI anime—Harlock…on Netflix.

We were impressed. Loved the take on new science. If you liked the original you are likely to like this—so to speak. We put it on to take a look, fully intending to see a few minutes…and get to bed at a decent hour.

Nope. We watched the whole thing. And were happy.

We didn’t get to Lowe’s but we tackled the pump…

A water pump has two key specifications, besides whether it’s submersible or not. First is the gph, or gallons per hour…or minute, in the case of really big pumps. The second is ‘head’, or its ability to press that gph up a hose of a certain diameter upward—ie, how far can it push the water […]

Foray to Lowes today…our dishwasher door is bowing…

and we are going to take our guarantee and go rain on Lowe’s customer service: they installed it, and they installed our countertop. The two have parted company and the dishwasher is being damaged to the point we now fear the seal cannot be relied upon. We’re really ticked about that. And we’re not willing […]

Remember when we had the fence installed…our pretty pricey fence?

Well, we saved a little because our installer said he’d deduct some if WE went down to city hall and got the permit, which we did, which was kind of interesting, and they were very nice to us.

Nobody ever mentioned however that there is a part B of the process, which is calling the […]

Colder than the 9th hell’s hinges out there…

Pond’s frozen. Our friend Joan is out gardening. Spring fever is starting to hit.

We’re meeting Joan for lunch today if she’s not standing out in her garden as a stiff and frosty garden elf.

Time, however, to get out and get some stuff. If we don’t stop for cat food our lives will be […]

Better today.

Feeling pretty good—I think it was a vitamin-mineral shortage.

Went and got the blood draw for the endocrinologist (remember Grant’s favorite word?) and due to the snow last night—no wait. Amazing!
