A short break here before I get lunch together for hubby and me.

I got all the latest family info I had into my computer files and it's saved on a disk. I still need to get some info from my niece, though (she's the one who got married in December).

I think I have all the pictures (that were already on the computer) into their right folder and labeled. I'll go back and check, though, before I save them all onto the external hard drive. Then I'll be done with what I wanted to get done today. :)

Hello, FULL OF FUN and Farful!

FULL OF FUN, great that Lil H slept 4 straight hours on Tuesday night; I know her parents appreciated that. Tell me, b/c I don't think I know/remember, how old is she? As for Lil C, hope she's better today. A lot of snow predicted for you now? Take care then.

Farful, the lady I talked to on the phone from the insurance company said the stress test results were alright also; she had to look it up on the computer. As for your bus trip yesterday...whew! Thank goodness the bus driver was able to get the bus over to the side lane! Glad you made it home alright.

Good morning Claudie and All!
 
Claudie, Congrats on your good test results! Hope the stress test results are favorable also.
 
Bus trip to Burlington yesterday went well except on trip back home. The bus engine quit running as we entered Muscatine, IA. Bus driver was able to maneuver the bus safely to a side lane before it stopped. Bus driver was able to obtain a second bus from near by bus terminal. Everyone was transferred to second bus so we could complete our trip. Bus owner called to say that the first bus started up shortly after everyone transferred over to second bus. Must have been something wrong with fuel for it do that. Glad that we made it safely home.
 
Enjoy a thankful Thursday!

little H slept for 4 hours on Tuesday night I will find out how she did last night later

Yay!

Test results!

Was able to get ahold of a really nice lady and she actually told me the results of the stress test AND the 2 I had last Friday; she said the letters about the ones from Friday were already in the mail. <shakes head> Can't figure out why those 2 letters are on their way and the one from the stress test wasn't, but, oh, well.

Results? Everything fine. :) I figured that about the stress test since I hadn't heard anything, but I didn't know about the other 2.

Now if I can get some info on mom's last blood work.

Good morning, sandipaws, senile, and dickc49!

sandipaws, test results? See info above. :)

senile, thanks for stopping in!

dick, glad to hear most of the snow-blowing is done. Nice that the snow was the light, fluffy kind, right? :) As for your plan to clean off the deck and the stairs leading to it....<nods head> sound like a good one. So you're going to Maine tomorrow? Hope it doesn't take you too much longer to get there. Should it cause you any problems coming back home?

Good morning Claudie,

Well, except for the second floor deck, its cleaned up. Still some cleanup being done around me. I have a flight and one half of stairs to that second floor deck, but its my fire escape to the bedroom so i need to get to it. I will go out in a bit and do some, rest, do more until done. My back will not be happy, but i will manage.

More snow is due in tomorrow. That storm will strengthen in the gulf of Maine and give Maine more snow than us. Its going to make for a messy drive to Maine for us, but good skiing! Will just have to plan on it taking longer to get there.

Good morning, Mrs. Wrench, Robustus, WKGaser, kathybye, Dino, Scanman, yankie, MidnightSun, Lighting10K, JM, hmcsretired07, org, TUrtLE, scout, attitash, and grmoore!

Mrs. Wrench, hoping the people at the kidney doctor's office can get the mess with Mom's blood work straightened out; I'll give them until Monday to call me again...and then I'll call them, Cool that you won some more on the lottery ticket. :)

Robustus, maybe you'll hear some news about your dad today.

kathybye, hope you get some good news from today's appointment.

Dino, Emily did good in the last game. :) I saw the pix, too, on FB.

Scanman, no slow-down for you? Welcome to my world!

MidnightSun, nice to have that light, fluffy snow to clear off. :)

Lighting, rain predicted for today? Hmmm, I just checked and it doesn't show any rain until Sunday. As for the Hawks....alright!

JM, yup, another win for the Hawks, though, the Brooklyn Nets gave them a run-for-their-money at times.

org, that's a new one for me. Thanks for sharing.

TUrtLE, ooohhh, how true Nora's statement is!

scout, busy, busy, busy! Do you ever have a stay-at-home evening?

attitash, hope the ski hill gets some more snow and you have some good runs.

grmoore, hope you get some down time this evening. I know how much I like it when that happens. :)

WKGaser, yankie, and hmcsretired, thanks for stopping in!

Aaaaahhhh! Staying home today, but it won't be a lazy one (are they ever?)

My plans for today are to make a coupla phone calls and see if I can get connected to the right person who can tell me some test results, esp. the stress test, which I took 2 weeks ago. If I can get the results from the tests I did last Friday, well, that'll be good, too.

I also plan on updating family files on the computer and getting pix already on the computer more organized (into the right 'folders.' No household stuff for me today. I have the whole weekend for that. :)

Hi, Claudie:
Hope things go well w/ your conversations w/ the kidney doctor.

I have an early meeting today, and leave work early to see Dr. Zeman, our ortho doctor. Knee still swelling, but not as badly. I wonder if the massage helped, although we concentrated on upper body/neck.

Take care; enjoy the day! Hubby & I will leave tomorrow for Vegas. I always enjoy the beautiful scenery along the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead.
I cannot it will be February when I return the PHX, and a New Super Bowl champion. My plans are to look for some new tops at my fav store, White House Black Market, and perhaps a few mark down items.

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Thursday! 32 degrees this morning. Walk complete.

It's been a busy few days and today is another one. Solving problems, addressing challenges, and trying to provide positive value against some "interesting" odds... (and I'm not a betting man, nor do I believe in luck.... lol)

re: all day IT conference. This was presented by Angelbeat who usually comes to Atlanta about once each year. They invite industry leaders to hear various vendor presentations about new/emerging technologies. It's supposed to be more about the technology and less about the "marketing and sales" and previously been a well-attended and very worthwhile event. Many of the presenters during yesterday's session "broke the rules" and focused on the latter. Thankfully, the conference finished early so I was able to address some of the items referenced in para. 2 above. :)

Will provide an update on our new car purchase soon when I slow down just a little. Tonight and tomorrow nights are open right now so perhaps I can add some information then.

Off to continue the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning, Claudie. I did see the Hawks score this morning, 17th in a row and they tied the win total from last season. I flicked throught the station looking for the game on Fox Sports and found out that the Hawks were playing on ESPN...cool. Did not see the game due to the time it came on, but I was to see that they won. Go Hawks!

Good morning Claudie!

Our snow fall was light and fluffy. Easy to clean.

Hamburger is getting pricy. Much higher here.

My posts were completed early yesterday morning. The GB servers were fast, in high gear. Had some homemade chicken noodle soup for my early brekky.

Enjoyed my fave police drama's watching Netflix. Was in no hurry to run outdoors in the early morning single numbers. Later bundled up to go outside and fire up the Ariens Deluxe 28" clearing width model.

It started on the first pull of the crank cord handle. Had removed the monel lock and chain the night before that keeps the machine from wandering away on its own. Like to keep everyone honest.

Snow depth was in the 10" (25 cm) range away from the house using my trusty aluminum ruler as a gauge taking depths in several places. Widened the driveway in case of more snow snow and allow the propane delivery truck plenty of room when it is needed in March.

Cleaned up the bottom of the driveway nicely. The town plowed on the part of the road heading up the mtn and had not plowed the other side heading down. No sand had been spread at that time.

Returned inside the house after 90 minuets to have a hot bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup, some ribs, and some Boston baked beans. All set until the nest storm which could arrive during the wee hours of Friday morning.

My feet were vibrating when this post was typed. Will relax in my new executive chair, lean back, put my feet up, and watch on Netflix the superb classic war drama "Apocalypse Now," (1979) that stars, Martin Sheen, Marlon Brando, Robert Duvall, and Dennis Hopper who is an insane war photographer w/more than just wild stories.

The temp is to -16° (-27°C) this morning. Have lit the kero heater to enjoy the extra warmth for some hours. The high will be 28° (-2°C) .

Civil twilight is 6:37 AM EST. Night is 5:22 PM.

Sunrise: 7:08 AM. Set: 4:50 PM.

Length of day: 9h 42m. Length of visible light: 10h 45m. Tomorrow will be 2m 27s longer.

Off to the produce mkt in Littleton for the scenic CT River drive and to buy a few items.

Have a fantastic day!

Good evening/morning Claudie

Yes, the Lady Patriots will be the next step up for Emily in, dare I say, two years from now. They have a Freshman team, and then they have the usual JV and Varsity teams. I hope she continues to take this as far as she can.

As predicted, it was well worth the drive to the "'burg" tonight. I was already over at facebook bragging earlier. The great thing about tonight's game was that the starters got most of the rest. The Coach started pulling them late in the first quarter and Emily went in. And stayed in. Final score Blennerhassett 33 Parkersburg Catholic 9. Emily went 2/2 from the free throw line and swished another shot for a total of 4 points in win. Lady Bobcats are now 5-3 after winning 3 in a row and should make it four next Wednesday when they play next against Van Devender, a team they beat to start the season 44-14. If they do win next Wednesday, the worst they can finish the regular season is 6-6. But we won't talk about that, will we?

Dino's Jukebox tomorrow night. It is wild card week meaning it could be from any decade. We'll set the wayback machine in motion and see where it lands. See you tomorrow night.

I just want to clarify that I was unsure when my dad is coming home. I just figured it would be today or very soon. So, there hasn't been a definitely date and I haven't heard anything today. I just went by what I know from the past. So, the anticipation continues onto tomorrow.

Good evening Claudie, That sure is crazy about your Mom's blood work, hope you can get it straightened out soon.

We had another cool day here, the high was only 61 degrees & windy. It's 49 degrees right now. Yesterday I got a call that a guy I went to grade school with (back in NJ) he was in the area with his lady friend & wanted to stop by so we visited for about 2 1/2 hours than they left. She has a place about 50 + miles from here. It's his house where we have our grade school picnic (reunion) every summer. He is so sweet, he now has Parkinson.

Yesterday I won $10.00 on a $ 2.00 scratch off card, I put it in the jar with the other $100.00 I won in Dec.

Good evening, FULL OF FUN and sandipaws!

FULL OF FUN, that's cool that your son liked to do figure skating, even when he was an older kid; once he started to play hockey, did he ever go back to the figure skating? I used to ice skate when I was a child (we lived in upstate New York until I was 12); the town we lived in flooded an outside area, and that's where we skated every winter. I loved it!

sandipaws, yeah, I did pretty good with the savings and discount today, esp. on the gas. :)

Time for me to sign out for the night.

Good night, everybuddy!

I love the skating too, all my kids did figure skating, my son had the choice hockey or figure skating when he was 5 he said Wayne Gretzky did figure skating before he did hockey that is why he was such a good hockey player he could skate rings around the other hockey players so I will do figure skating, we asked him the same question and each year he said he wanted to figure skate , I was getting a bit worried and when he was around 11 or 12 I asked him why, his explanation was so funny, he said " Mum I have the choice to dance with my pick of a room full of pretty girls or get my teeth knocked out by some guys, What do you think im going to choose???? When he was 16 he played hockey and he skated rings around the other kids and was the MVP of the team that year LOL
he took little C skating on Sunday as it was free skate at our local Arena

Oh. My. Goodness!

I got a phone call from the kidney doctor's office a bit ago...get this: she wanted to know exactly where I had taken Mom to get her blood work done. She wanted to make sure I had gone to the hospital that's practically across the street from not only where Mom lives but from where their office is. I said yes, of course. Anyway the hospital didn't have/ know where the results were! Huh? The lady said the problem was more than likely that Mom had so many 'aliases' (yes, that's the word she used), and I do know this is true...one doctor has her listed by her initials and last name; another by her full name; another by her first name, middle initial, and last name, and so on and so forth. Who knows HOW all that happened, but it did. Anyway, the lady asked me if I knew when I took Mom for the blood work, and, thank goodness, I did.

THIS IS CRAZY!

Ooops! Sorry for shouting.

Well, we'll see the outcome of this. At least now I don't have to call them tomorrow (I asked her to call me back and let me know how things were going; I said I also really wanted to know her sodium level).

Good afternoon, FULL OF FUN, attitash, and HappyHiker!

FULL OF FUN, great to see ya! :) Yes, hard to believe that it's been 29 years since Challenger exploded. I was VERY interested in this launch b/c it had a teacher on board. My 2 kids and I were home b/c it was a snow day here; we were watching all about it on TV. The Walking Dead? Ya know what? That was filmed not too far from where I live. :) Say....don't be a stranger!

attitash, wow! You're getting a lot of good ski days I, aren't you? :)

HappyHiker, I like watching the skating, too, though, I didn't watch as much as you did. In fact, I missed a lot on Saturday since I didn't even know it was on. Thanks to you mentioning it, I was able to see some of the competition on Sunday. Skating is always one of the events I watch when the Winter Olympics come around.

Hi Claudie, we actually had a very small amount of rain on Monday, enough so that I could keep the automatic sprinklers turned off. This week it's partly cloudy days with temps in the low to mid 70's. Can't even imagine what it's like for our New England friends.

In all, I watched 8 hours of the Greensboro National Figure Skating Championships on TV last weekend. It brought back so many memories of the 2013 Championships when my friend, Barb, and I flew to Northern California to watch 8 days of competition (24 different events at three different levels) and had a fantastic time.

Enjoy your busy afternoon.

Hi cluadie
hope everyone is well and warm
can you believe its 29 years since the space shuttle exploded

1986

U.S. shuttle Challenger exploded 72 seconds after lift off, killing all seven crew members aboard, including school teacher Christa McAuliffe.

I remember it as if it was yesterday, it was before I came to live over this side of the water I was expecting a baby.

we did not get much snow yesterday at home and by the lake there was a few inches, so not too bad for us.

little C got sent home from School ill, little H the new one is not sleeping through the night yet she is up every hour, so mum and dad are very tired.

I finished watching the last of the walking dead marathon, from episode 1 to the last televised episode in 2 weeks. I am looking forward to seeing the new season on Sunday

A good morning out!

Got about $2.50 for the grocery store senior discount, had 1 e-coupon and 3 paper ones; got a few things on sale; used up my remaining 400 fuel points for this month, and ended up getting about 10 gallons of gas for about $15! Whoo hoo!

Everything got done; now what would make this an even more spectacular day would be if I get some test results from somebuddy! If not, then looks like I'll be making several phone calls tomorrow morning.

Hello, dickc49 and Lighting10K!

dick, wow! So much snow! Glad you've been able to keep up with the clearing off. I heard that it's really, really cold where you are, too, so bundle up! Hoping you see the sun soon!

Lighting, it's warmed up now to about 45°, so that's certainly better. Sure am glad the wind is almost nonexistent. Hawks game...tonight at 8 PM on ESPN; will be keeping track of it, too, as I watch another program.

Well, i went out a second time last night and cleaned up some more as a few more inches fell. Son used the scoop to shove it to the sides and I blew it out. This morning I am going to have to go out and do it a third time as it was still snowing as I went to bed, and I can see areas that have drifted back in. NOt sure how much more my low back is going to put up with. ITs kind of tight this morning. No daycare, so my daughter stayed home from work. HAve not seen or heard anything from the other parents yet so I assume one is home with the grand daughter.

I think once I get this cleaned up, I should be good. While its still cloudy now, the forecast is for the sun to come out. Once that happens, it will form a tiny bit of crust so that no more of this blows around. I will wait another day to shovel out the second floor deck. That is one and one half flights of steps, and then the snow is drifted on it to a depth of four feet. Its all shovel work. Will do it as my back tells me I can.

Wow! Quite a crowd this morning!

Good morning, sandipaws, Robustus, Scanman, Silverhand, WKGaser, Dino, yankie, MidnightSun, pink, JM, org, senile, grmoore, scout, and TUrtLE!

sandipaws, it was a pretty good day yesterday; hoping for the same today, too.

Robustus, glad you had another drama-free day yesterday. Hoping things work out for your dad if he gets out today.

Scanman, ooohhh! Forget about that 'lost' day!

Silverhand, hey! The Sunday 'toons are STILL good today!

Dino, aaahhh, the Lady Patriots! Is that the team Emily will be on when she gets to high school? As for Dominique...the Hawks play tonight, going for #17 wins in a row, and the game should be on TV. I'll see if it's Dominique that's announcing.

MidnightSun, yikes! Lots of snow around there! Hope it's not too big a chore for you to clear off what you need to. BTW, I checked the price of the 93%/7% hamburger at WM yesterday; one pound was $5.98. :(

JM, I think the northern part of GA got about the same amount of snow you did. BTW, Hawks play tonight; not sure of the time, but it's probably 7:30 or 8 ET.

org, oh, my! A boy king!

grmoore, an all-day meeting? Hope it's an interesting one then.

scout, 4 inches of snow isn't as bad as it could have gotten. Once it warms up, that'll melt away quickly.

TUrtLE, :)

WKGase, yankie, pink, and senile, thanks for stopping in!

One more planned out-and-about day...I'll first make a quick stop at Mom's, then make a quick stop in the dollar store for a birthday card (for Alhana); a stop at the Kroger gas station where gas is about $1.85/gallon (and I'll use up the remaining 400 fuel points...for an extra 40¢ off); another quick stop to drop off newspapers at the recycling place, and FINALLY to the grocery store! Busy, busy! :) At least it'll be sunny, though, a bit chilly at about 35°.

Good Morning Claudie,

No animal should ever jump up on the dining room furniture unless absolutely certain that he can hold his own in the conversation.

Ever consider what they must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul -- chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth!

Happy Wednesday!

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Wednesday! 33 degrees this morning. In early this morning as I have to leave to go to an all day IT Conference on the northside of town.

Have a great day all!

On this day, in 1547, King Henry VIII of England died and his nine-year-old son, Edward VI, assumed the throne.

Happy Hard Drive, Claudie!

Good morning Claudie!

Can tell we rec'd much more than 4-8" by the snow in the window boxes. Will know in a few hours.

Expected the snow to start in the afternoon. Saw the radar images of the clouds swirl from the coast of Portland, Maine early yesterday morning in the oh so familiar counter clockwise motion our typical nor'easters take.

The counter clockwise swirl of a true nor'easter soaks up the moisture from the ocean and dumps it inland as heavy snow in the winter. Usually lots of it as it continuously swirls for hours on end.

The snow began lightly at 7:20 AM. By 9:30 AM it was falling moderately. For a time had it on my mind to get a loaf of bread. That idea went away as the flakes fell thickly and fast.

Lit the kero heater at 1 AM. It was a warmer than normal w/the temp at 9°F (-12°C). By 9 AM the house was more than warm enough. Turned the heater off outside, then watched dime sized chunks fall. Every limb of every tree had snow covered limbs. It is Beautiful!

My window boxes are full of snow half way up to the tops of the windows. No snow dud here. Nearby Jefferson, NH has recorded 12.5 inches (31.75 cm). Portland, Maine 25" (63.5cm). Officialy (NWS) the highest snow totals in New England is 36" (91.4cm) in Hudson, Auburn, and Lunenburg, Mass

Mt Washington, 6,288' (1916 m), recorded sustained winds of 111 mph (180 km/h). Offically 74 and 75 mph winds (130 km/h) in the flatlands. More than 1,000 lost power.

The blizzard warning remains in effect through 4 AM. Will enjoy the beauty and clean up after first light. More snow due on Friday.

The temp is 12° (-11°C) and should remain so.

Civil twilight is 6:38 AM EST. Night is 5:20 PM.

Sunrise: 7:09 AM. Set: 4:49 PM.

Length of day: 9h 40m. Length of visible light: 10h 42m. Tomorrow will be 2m 25s longer.

Have a fabulous day!

Good evening/morning Claudie

Cool that Dominique is still calling the games if you're right. Dell Curry is a Color Commentator for the Hornets now. He was one of my favorite 6th men from back in the day. Now his Son, Stephen is making a name for himself in Golden State. And doing well at it.

I thought I'd spoke too soon about the sn*w last night. We had some more downpours of the white stuff overnight last night and this morning. Officially, the NWS numbers reported 1.5" for Middlebourne and 1" for Parkersburg. Center Point, WV reported 9".

A chilly night in store here. Temp hovering around 20 as I type this. In addition to the Lady Bobcats, I do follow the Lady Patriots at Parkersburg South High School as well. Tonight they were scheduled to play Morgantown in a rematch of the championship game last season. Morgantown won the last bout and their dominance, unfortunately continues. Just found the final score. Morgantown 47 South 34. Lady Patriots are 12-3 on the season.

Cold tonight lows in the teens.
