    I thought this might be a good topic. I can use a good laugh. It always makes me feel better if I have a good belly laugh. ggks

    it takes you 2 hours to get geared up enough to go to the store. When you get out to the car, you can't remember where you are going. If you do remember where you are going, you don't remember how to get there. If you do make it to the store, you can't remember what it was you came to buy. If you actually make it to the checkout with what you came to buy, it doesn't matter anyway, because your checkbook is at home in the freezer!

    Your therapeutic "accessories" (heating pad, heated matress, neck bean bags, etc) become more valuable than your heirloom jewelery.

    For illness related medical info, but I know we can all use a laugh from time to time. That's why our Webmaster created the Chit Chat Forum. They have all kinds of jokes over there, along with recipes, and all kinds of posts. It's a place where you can pretty much discuss anything and kick back and forget about your aches and pains for a while when you need a break.

    Click on "Message Boards" at the strip at the top of the page and it will take you to a list of our other sites. Many here like the Worship Forum for asking for prayer, although you can do that on the Chit Chat Forum too.

    Love, Mikie

    Since there are appropriate boundaries in the message boards, is it possible to have boundaries in the chatrooms? Can people please leave their sexual orientation discussions out of the chatrooms so we can discuss our health issues? We can't discuss religion or politics, how about adding in-your-face homosexuality to that list? It seems to me that there are plenty of websites all over the Internet where that can be discussed.

    JB...whether you know it or not, I was in the chatroom the day that the discussion occurred that you are talking about. I am a moderator on the chatroom program. You simply didnt like the persons name. That chatter has every right to have her name the same as you have the right to your name. It is not a degrading nickname which is the only rule pertaining to acceptable nicknames. There was no talk about sexual acts at all. Everything was all well and good for you as long as the straight(as far as you know) chatter was talking about her engagement and upcomming wedding but when the other chatter mentioned that she had become engaged and someone esle mentioned that she could get married in vermont...that is when you got upset. You said you were going to take a break because you didnt agree with that...but yet you stayed to continue to argue your point. You have a right to your opinion but the others have a right to theirs as well. It is a support forum. People support each jumped on this chatter the minute they walked in even going so far as asking if they had the right room. We dont care what anyones sexual orientation is in that room...we dont discuss it. I really didnt see what there was to offend you other than the name which didnt offend anyone else.

    My two cents.

    you are a better weather forecaster than the weatherman.

    I have to laugh at myself and you all, if not I would cry. This stuff is so true. I have looked for something for hours and when my husband gets home he finds it right away. It(whatever it may be at the time) is generally in plain sight and I never saw it--AT ALL!!!

    going to dye my hair yesterday. I knew I'd bought the stuff, just didn't know where I put it. Looked in the bathroom on all the shelves, not there. Looked all over the house. Didn't find it. Thought, maybe I left it out in the truck. Not in the truck.
    Went back in the bathroom to pee. Looked up at top shelf (an open shelf, mind you), and there it was! in front, nothing blocking it, plain as day. Can't see the forest for the trees? Man!
