If no underwear, where does all the sweat go?

And Louis, ouch. I have essentially no health care so luckily I am not on any meds. If I have an accident I hope I am killed and not merely injured or maimed because financially it would devastate my family. There isn't much, but enough and I don't want to have it all go to trying to keep me on this planet despite terrible odds.

I think I sweat all over. I'm not dripping with it until temps get over 100 or I'm strenuously active which isn't happening just yet behind my injuries.

I think working in the house will have a greater effect overall and be something Mrs. can see was done when she returns tomorrow.

Supplies and parts for all this are on the den floor in front of the fireplace, many still in their bags. I think we just had about two weeks of rain so we only had a couple of days outside where I did fix one lawnmower.

I have her toilet flusher and tank-to-bowl bolts to replace along with her plumbing to the toilet--I'll replace the chrome-plated copper pipe with stainless steel flex line as well as all the tank innards.

I also have a cellular router and a switch plugged in via extension cord in front of the fireplace awaiting being behind the TV with the switch hidden and the router placed as high as I can find a place for it.

A PC sitting on the floor on the other side of the room that needs put behind the TV with the one already there.

And an air compressor inside near the back door that I need to use in the kitchen to blow out the clogged drain lines in the fridge, but the fridge and freezer part are jam-packed full so I cannot allow it to thaw for a day to insure any ice in the walls that may be blocking the drain lines has melted because the food will go bad--that is a dilemma I don't yet have a solution to.

And at least one load of laundry to do and a load of dishes.

I guess that is how I will tolerate the heat today--by staying inside and getting done things that will be visible to my wife.

The generator work can be when she is home as I also need to open the two electrical panels in the house, and alter some wiring, so both 200 Amp panels can be powered by the generator. There are between eighty and ninety circuit breakers between the two panels, it's a home far too big for two old people.

 Quoting: Louis in Richmond


I hope y'all don't mind if I join you at this virtual eatery (lol)...

I started reading this thread, Louis, after you mentioned it on the prayer thread. I love this thread very much! The food recipes and photos always brighten my day...this is my first post here and I hope you don't mind it's of my cat....

I couldn't resist posting this photo that my kitty girl took of herself 10 years ago!

https://imgur.com/a/DdEco9W


I can't believe it's been that long! She and her brother are 14 years old. She doesn't climb around like she used to, but she still gets around. She jumped up on the bar/divider between my kitchen and dining room where I used to work on my laptop. She would walk on the keyboard when she wanted my attention....this is one of many she took of herself until I finally got in the habit of closing it. I was looking for ones that I took of her sitting on the keyboard and another one where she was sprawled completely over the keyboard with that innocent look of "what's wrong with being here?"

Bastetcat's not her real name, btw...daughter named them as she picked them out...but the name fits her. She was the runt of the litter...Her brother is totally gray and looks like a Russian blue---almost exactly like the gray cat on the Sheba cat food ads/label...

As far as Mr Blackwell, he looks well fed and I bet he would make himself at home inside, lol...

I posted a few foodie pics back on the old main Covid thread around last Christmas...if I make something worthy of sharing I will post...

Good luck, Para with the computer--I am such a luddite when it comes to technical stuff--I wish I knew more about them---I gave up on Firefox years ago because it would freeze also....

Just want to say again how much I appreciate everyone here...love you guys very much!

I quit using Firefox because it was messing up for me, too. I started using Brave I saw it suggested here. I tried downloading it last night, but it something it wrong with their site I think. It will work out eventually.

I'm making chicken noodle soup to take to my son's house tonight. I boiled down drumsticks yesterday & Mr picked all the meat off. I will go heat up the broth and add in the carrots soon.

I just woke so coffee first!

Beautiful horse! I have not been riding since I was a kid. I miss it. That is the one thing I would get if I won the lottery!

Louis, I understand about the medicine. I just figured out how Mr's insurance works. I'm a little slow.1doh1

After his drug costs reach over $4100 for the year, his share goes up. His 2 diabetic meds that were $70 last month are now over $350. I'm trying to figure out how to get them. He is stubborn though. He says even if we have it, he doesn't want pat that much.

It figures. He just went to the doc and everything was good. His A1C went down to 7 and his goal is to get it under 7. He doesn't want to go back on metformin. It really screws up his gut with cramping.

What the hell?!?!? His cost goes up?

My healthcare is by Anthem. Once we pay either $1,500 or $1,800 in copays [I forget how much], whether they are for Dr. visits, prescriptions, or trips to the E.R. once we reach that limit they cover meds and supplies at 100% and Dr. and hospital visits are a $25 copay.

For example, one of my glaucoma drops is $99 at Anthem's cost to me. So in those cases of high-cost meds I will call or email the manufacturer and get a manufacturer's discount so now my glaucoma drops only cost me $30 because the Mfr. then covers $69 of the cost. And now that we have met the $1,800 maximum those eye drops cost me nothing.

Why the heck such ridiculous differences in what healthcare covers? It's infuriating.

Right? It's called a donut hole. The lady at the drug store told me that so I could look it up.It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of! We have to pay 25% which is about $225 for one & $140 for the other, per month!

We have to spend another $2000 on drugs before the coverage kicks back in. Then in January, it starts again. That is why you hear about older folks having to choose between meds & food.

[link to www.medicareinteractive.org (secure)]

All doctor & hospital visits are covered 80%, I think after we pay a small deductable for the year, like $200?

The drug deductable is separate, I think $325. Plus the monthly premiums. They're not high compared to private plans, but if you're on SS, it's a lot.

Click the arrows and see the sopressata on foil, then covered with Carl, the covered with another slice of sopressata, then ovened at 225 F for one hour, then placed on a French bread garlic pizza, then adding sausage and pepper jack cheese, then ovenning it until perfect.

Use the arrows to step though all the pics.

Re: Food with Attitude!

Louis, I understand about the medicine. I just figured out how Mr's insurance works. I'm a little slow.1doh1

After his drug costs reach over $4100 for the year, his share goes up. His 2 diabetic meds that were $70 last month are now over $350. I'm trying to figure out how to get them. He is stubborn though. He says even if we have it, he doesn't want pat that much.

It figures. He just went to the doc and everything was good. His A1C went down to 7 and his goal is to get it under 7. He doesn't want to go back on metformin. It really screws up his gut with cramping.

What the hell?!?!? His cost goes up?

My healthcare is by Anthem. Once we pay either $1,500 or $1,800 in copays [I forget how much], whether they are for Dr. visits, prescriptions, or trips to the E.R. once we reach that limit they cover meds and supplies at 100% and Dr. and hospital visits are a $25 copay.

For example, one of my glaucoma drops is $99 at Anthem's cost to me. So in those cases of high-cost meds I will call or email the manufacturer and get a manufacturer's discount so now my glaucoma drops only cost me $30 because the Mfr. then covers $69 of the cost. And now that we have met the $1,800 maximum those eye drops cost me nothing.

Why the heck such ridiculous differences in what healthcare covers? It's infuriating.

Right? It's called a donut hole. The lady at the drug store told me that so I could look it up.It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of! We have to pay 25% which is about $225 for one & $140 for the other, per month!

We have to spend another $2000 on drugs before the coverage kicks back in. Then in January, it starts again. That is why you hear about older folks having to choose between meds & food.

All doctor & hospital visits are covered 80%, I think after we pay a small deductible for the year, like $200?

The drug deductible is separate, I think $325. Plus the monthly premiums. They're not high compared to private plans, but if you're on SS, it's a lot.

One of the reasons GLP exists is so we can help each other.

Can he use Humalog insulin? I will send a care package with a few month's supply if it would help. Then he would not need to use that God-awful Metformin that causes cognitive impairment.

Thank you, but He hasn't been on insulin yet. He said his doc mentioned it once but MR told him no. hugs

Well, I went ahead and got this month's supply of his shot, Ozempic. The doc wanted to double his dosage. I'm not sure if this pen is different, but if I can, I'll keep him on the half dosage he is on right now. That way, it will last him 2 months instead of 1. Hopefully!

At any rate, he is good for another month. One day, or month, at a time.
