    Hi Kiddo

    Here's another old favorite from Cole Porter who also wrote
    Night and Day. It's De-Lovely. The song was adapted for a car
    commercial when we were teens: "It's Desoto!" Chrysler
    stopped making them about half a century ago.

    The night is young, the skies are clear
    And if you want to go walkin', dear
    It's delightful, it's delicious, it's d'lovely.

    Oh, the moonlight's fair tonight along the Wabash,
    from On The Banks of the Wabash. Victor
    Mature was somewhat miscast as the composer in
    an old movie titled My Gal Sal.

    From Fiddler On The Roof: Sunrise, Sunset.

    We Were Sailing Along on Moonlight Bay.
    Used in the 50s movie Moonlight Bay with Doris Day
    and Gordon MacRae. Is it just a kawinkydink that they
    all rhyme? Bay, Day, MacRae?

    Turn Off Your Light, Mr. Moonman written by performers
    Nora Bays and Jack Norworth. Nora and Jack were
    married for a while. (Nora had 5 husbands.)

    Jack was also one of the writers of Take Me Out to the Ballgame.
    A song and a movie that starred Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and
    Esther Williams. Esther said in her biography that Frank and Gene
    were rude to her. Decried her lack of abilities to sing or dance.

    There are clips on Youtube. Gene does a nice Irish dance titled
    The Hat My Dear Old Father Wore.

    Nice to see the Homebound Board isn't totally moribund.

    Hi GB

    Neither Diane nor Barry has been around lately. I 'spect they are
    under the weather as my mother used to say. I've kinda been
    posting to myself here the last couple weeks.

    I posted about the dearth of posters here yesterday on the Chit Chat
    board. Figured that might trigger the car to the garage effect. And
    it did. The funny noise healed up.

    Gotta go, Gordoni wants the machine.

    Sunset and Evening Star, a poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson later
    set to music. Also known as the hymn Crossing the Bar. When
    I was a kid, all the funeral programs at our church had this poem
    printed on them.

    An American Hymn by Lee Holdridge from the TV series East of
    Eden. "I stand so proudly in the sun..."

    "When day is done" and shadows fall I dream of you.
    By Edgar Guest. Recorded by Bing.

    My Mammy;
    The sun shines east, The sun shines west,
    But I know where the sun shines best.

    Recorded by Al Jolson and umpteen other people.

    GB, you started your new thread after I raised the issue in my
    post according to the times on my computer. But who knows?
    We may be in different time zones. Or different worlds. I
    think that's what Einstein meant when he said time was

    Wait! Our 9th grade Science teacher said time was relevant
    to the speed of light. Or maybe he was talking about the
    new lights that had been installed to allow night racing
    at the County Speedway.

    Whatever. [​IMG]

    Hi All.

    Here I come, chugging into the garage, toot toot.

    I got all of my top teeth pulled on Dec. 14. Medicaid won't let me get dentures til about 4 months later, with all the appointments and fittings after healing for 10 weeks first.

    Been eating my food practically whole. Rock, you know what it is to not be able to eat. It will be another month til I get my new choppers.

    My hub has been having agonizing sciatica pain in his hip and leg since August. One day he couldn't even make it to the bathroom - he couldn't stand up without collapsing - and I had to push him in my wheelchair to the bathroom and back. I tried to make my own meals that day, and collapsed in exhaustion after one day. We were up a creek. He's my caregiver and he needed a caregiver himself. Luckily it was only that one day he couldn't even walk - I was despairing and saying we'll have to both go to a nursing home. He's able to hobble along now.

    That's my excitement lately.

    I just took a kelp pill for iodine, and an L-glutathione pill, and it immediately cleared some of my brain fog so I could post.

    Love to all,

    Yes, Patti, as GB says, come back when you feel better. Sorry to hear of all
    your problems and DH's sciatica pain. Hope you both improve,
    well, as much as possible. As the song says, Life Gets Teejus,
    Don't it?

    Gordon is at an orchid meeting. He took several plants and made mini
    cheese cakes for the refreshment table. The kind where you put a vanilla
    wafer in a paper baking cup and then dump the rest of the ingreediments
    on top. I assisted with the artistic part. I put the cherry pie filing on top.

    Here's an old song with lyrics by Rudyard Kipling.
    "On the Road to Mandalay" Where the flyin'-fishes play,
    An' the dawn comes up like thunder outer China 'crost the Bay!

    Strangers in the Night, a Grammy Award winner for
    Sinatra in the 60s.

    Another Irving Berlin hit. From Annie Get Your gun.
    I Got the Sun in the Morning (and the moon at night).

    Remember somewhere the sun is shining,
    And so the right thing to do is make it shine for you.
    One of Jerome Kern's great songs. Judy sang it in
    Till the Clouds Roll By.

    Silent Night. According to the legend, the carol was written 200
    years ago for a village church near Salzburg. The church organ
    was out of order so the original accompaniment was with a guitar.
    The writers were Joseph Mohr and Franz Gruber.

    Hi Guys. (I read that when you use 'guys' for men and women both, it indicates you're from the Midwest.)

    I made those little cheesecakes before, with cherry pie filling on top. Delish.

    Cheesecake is my all-time fave dessert, with cherries and Cool Whip on top. My son loves it too, only plain. He just had it for his birthday this month. Save-A-Lot grocery store has delicious big frozen New York Style cheesecakes, so I don't have to bake my own anymore.

    I'm getting bottom partials, too. My hub's getting new full dentures - he's had them since age 22. We've been going in together.

    I have another nightmare story about a doctor's rude bizarre behavior, this time the dentist yesterday. I've been having bad dreams because of him.

    Gonna rest some more, two more appointments at dentist this week, Monday and Wednesday. Wish me luck. I'll need it.

    Hi y'all,

    Just checking in...finally.

    It's been a rough month for me. I had my new doc appt on Mar 7. As soon as the calendar turned from Feb to Mar, the daily panic attacks started. I barely slept for two hours at a time, maybe two hours for the whole night. I know the tricks/helpers to use (meditate, clear my mind, take my klonopin). Nothing worked.

    So I finally made it through to the appt. The doc knows what he's doing, he's board certified (internal medicine), practicing a lot of years (he's 60'ish years old). But then he got my anxiety out of control, by putting the cart in front of the horse. *I* decided: blood tests/urinalysis first; then we talk, about test results, what I can handle, what I can't, etc.

    So I had my blood drawn this morning (8 vials). And I dread the phone call from the doc. He'll get the results before I will; the lab will not email the results to me. So I have to wait for my copy to arrive in the mail.

    In the meantime, I *really* cleaned up my diet. There's really no name for it -- except that it's all real food. If you can't pronounce the ingredient, you don't eat it. That means a fair amount of time in the kitchen for me. I have to be careful with cholesterol/saturated fats, triglycerides, gluten, salt, sugar, protein. I've been eating 5 or 6 small meals a day, and I'm feeling a bit better. And drinking 8 glasses of water.

    I changed some of my supplements. Instead of taking milk thistle for liver support (my liver enzymes are a bit elevated), Kevin got me a "multi-supp", sort of a detox. And boy did I herx! I'm still trying to balance my electrolyte intake, so I don't get muscle cramping.

    I'm feeling better, day by day. My brain fog is acting up, and I can't remember all of what I read here.

    I wish you all well!
    GB, you feeling OK?; you said you were back at the doc's.
    Patti, oh dear, how scary that must have been with your hubby's sciatica. Patti, hang in there! Isn't it terrible when "real life" invades our dreams, turning into nightmares. I wish you well for your upcoming appts!
    Rock, I keep track of you as best I can, on the Porch posts.

    My gosh, I wrote a LONG post. If you get through the entire ramblings of mine ... thank you for reading. :)

    I probably won't be back until after I get my blood test results. I'm on pins and needles.

    You all take good care. Miss y'all, and miss participating in and posting games.

    Love and Hugs, Diane

    PS: I ran out of steam and can't post on the porch. Rock, if anybody's asking about me, please refer them to this post, please? Thanks.

    PPS: I WANT SOME CHEESECAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;)

    Hi Diane

    Good to see ya. I think I've figured out your problem. You have way
    too many medical problems. (Surprise!) So do I. But I think your collection is
    worser than mine.

    The cheesecake was very good although it probably contains a lotta stuff
    you're trying to avoid. The orchid lovers snapped it up. Here's a pic
    of a showy orchid they were discussing. It's called Misty Girl Royal Queen.
    Gordon has something that looks very similar.

    You guys are GREAT!

    I'm crying as I'm typing this.

    SUPPORT, this is what these boards are for. And SUPPORT is what you always provide. I luv y'all.

    Thank you all for your kind words, support and suggestions. I really appreciate them!

    I'll be back sporadically, can't say when, but I'm feeling better, so maybe I can retain what I read!? Maybe!

    You guys are great. Luv y'all.

    OK, Diane, as Tom Bodett says, we'll leave the light on fur ya. Tom, BTW
    is an author as well as a pitchman. His book The End of the Road always
    cheers me up. Short pieces of Americana; kinda like Garrison Keillor.

    September Song, Kurt Weill's most popular composition. It's from
    a musical titled Knickerbocker Holiday that has no other good tunes
    in it. Made in to a boring movie with Nelson Eddy. "The days
    grow short when you reach September."

    Deep Purple; Your love lives on when moonlight beams.
    Moonlight and Roses. Jim Reeves; Daniel O'Donnell; the Platters.

    Circle Round the Sun. B. J. Thomas became famous with Raindrops
    Keep Falling On My Head, a song I never liked from a movie I
    loved. You can hear him sing Circle Round the Sun on Youtube.
    This song is even worse than the other one. Uff-da!

    All Through the Night, a Welsh song.
    Sleep, my child, and peace attend thee
    All through the night

    Cyndi Lauper, whoever she is, sings a new song with the same
    title. Checked it out on Youtube. Every bit as ghastly as I
    anticipated. Uff-da!

    Cyndi Lauper is the lady who made the song "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" a hit. She's kinda different. :)

    This is what I posted on the Porch today:

    Hi y'all,

    Oh goodness, and thank you God, and all who said prayers for me!!!!

    {I called my doc's office yesterday, got a rude person on the phone, she basically gave me no info about my blood tests. Would not and Could not email the results to me. I'd just have to wait.}

    I had Kevin call the doc's office today. I gave him complete access to my information on the intake forms I filled out.

    Kevin's looking for a fax machine at his office; Patty will fax the test results to Kevin. Dr. J is not in the office all week. (Why didn't they tell me that yesterday????)

    Patty said that the numbers weren't bad at all. Including liver enzymes. They were a "bit" above the normal, but way lower than when my previous doc did blood draw.

    If Patty is allowed to send the results ... that is a good thing. It means that my test results are not sitting in an URGENT folder on the doc's desk.

    Please keep your fingers crossed for me!!!!!!

    I cannot begin to thank you for all the support you've given me. Maybe my panic attacks will go away and I will be back to posting sooner than I thought.

    Luv y'all,

    Isn't that interesting, GB????

    It was just a thought I had this morning == give Kevin the doc's phone number and see what happens.

    He'll bring home the faxed complete lab reports home tonight.

    Thanks to you all, my friends. :)

    Love, Diane
