      It doesnt afect me much as all I do is drive to Drs , all quite close, & to moms assted living , also not to far,

      EVEN the ER i haave to go to to often to meet mom is only 4-5 miles away

      when i return a leased care they know they get a bargain as hardly any miles on it, but do know it greatly affects others

      On the rare occasion I go out with friemnds, they know not to let me drive in my medical condition

      Tell me about it! It's costing me a ton just to drive the 2 grandsons to football practice 4 trips a day. Now I get to pay for the gas to go to the games starting pretty soon. I think the farthest is like 60 miles one way.

  2. I don't know how many roundabouts there are in Carmel, but I think I went through at least 20 of them today . . . which brought back memories of how hard it was for me to enter jump roping without tripping or being whacked in the head.

  3. A month ago, I didn't even know there was such a thing as a derecho. Now, the radio tells me that we have a 30% of being hit by another one this afternoon. I long to go back to the good old days when I was so blissfully unaware of this cruel trick by mother nature.

      After living in Fort Wayne for over 20 years, I never thought of it as being that cold. With the exception of this year, of course.

  6. That does it! I'm moving. Having a mouse in the house was bad enough, but I draw the line at bats.

      you'd need to be pretty far south to have a vampire bat (blood diet) and usually they are only eating live stock and out door critters... .personally I love bats, but not in the house of course, sometimes they just get messed up in pursuit of bugs and looking for a cozy home. Brown bats where I am at can eat their weight in bugs each night, and I appreciate their efforts! good luck finding the entry point so you can close it up.

      Thanks, MAC. I took your advice and was told that they didn't think I should worry and was given a long list of symptoms to look for.

  7. Eek!!! I have a mouse in my house. Spiders don't scare me, but I am petrified of mice!

      Gramz: When the old house was here, snakes would be in the old cellar. You would open the doors very slowly. They can be scary. We have not had a wet spring, but they are out....

  8. I'm sitting in the bank today, looking out the window, when I notice a man approaching with a shot gun. Almost wet my capris as I warned the employees. Turned out this guy was transferring his hunting gear from one vehicle to another. Why he chose to park in front of a bank to make this transfer is beyond me.

      After the scare wore off, I found it funny also. This was in a small town where things are much more laid back. And, of course, I was the only customer in the bank at the time. As my friends often say, stuff like this could only happen to me.

      Some good old fashioned ingenuity was definitely used there. 1 Question or an observation: That inventor had both a paved, level, & short drive way. What if a person lived at the end of a long, steep, gravel based driveway surrounded by tall trees & thick brush that might interfere with that remote controller successful operational capacity? A remote rural setting as opposed to a urban suburban community etc. etc.

      I am not criticizing your friends incredible device shecolt. I am just merely pointing out that the device in question is not ideal or tailor made for every driveway or house location dwelling in a 1 size fits all winter blowing capacity that's all. Still a cool gizmo though. :)

      @MAC The TV my husband blew up or out was "my" little 19" with a built in VCR (I'm still old school). I loved that TV and will be scouring ebay and craigslist to see if I can find another.

    3. shecolt

      Our power was only out for 6 hours this time as the storm was very tame compared to that super derecho.

      Sorry shecolt. If it was me, I wouldn't buy a used piece of electronics unless I could try it out first. VCRs don't last forever in the best of circumstances (the head being off a little bit could result in it not working properly for you even if it worked for the previous owner. You can buy new combo vcr/dvd players for reasonable amounts of money, and after getting our modest sized flat screen I wouldn't go back to the old style if you paid me.

  11. Woke up to find my kitchen full of big, black ants marching one by one (boo hoo, boo hoo). Just goes to show ya, it's always something.

      He has been on the NFLN. I didn't catch much of last night's game, but saw him in several commercials also. However, he leaves his magnifying glass at home when he does the commercials.

  14. I wanted to treat myself to a roll of the Colt's duct tape that I saw today. But, I couldn't justify spending $6.69 for 10 yards of tape. So, I settled for a 30 cent box of crayons. Now, does anyone know where I can get a Colt's coloring book?

      @Princeton I saw the tape at my local Meijer store, but you could probably find it in other stores or online.

  15. Stopped to buy gas today. My vehicle said it was 8 degrees outside. There was a young man putting gas in his car. He was wearing a t-shirt, shorts, and flip flops. Is that supposed to be macho? Cause it just seems rather dumb to me.

      I just watched a couple of "planking" videos on You Tube because I had no idea what all the fuss was about. Isn't it just the human equivalent of having a dog play dead for 30 seconds to a minute? I still don't see the appeal of this craze myself. I must be getting too old.

  18. Ugh! There is a dead skunk in the middle of the road right in front of my house and the aroma is permeating each and every room. Last week, it was a live bat in my bedroom. Now, it's a dead skunk. I'm wondering what pleasures are in store for me next???

      How I wish they'd stopped it one week earlier.

      I've always found it uncomfortable - even on Tday. The short week leads to irrational results and is damaging to teams. I've always thought that it should ONLY involve two teams coming off a bye week.

      I love the prime time games, but to me a "Saturday Night football" would make a LOT more sense. Heck, if you time it off the bye weeks you can have Friday night football too. :)

      Well just relax as you probably need to get your mind off football for even just one day. Love Sunday nights though!

      I just cannot believe you play in the West to go to the SOUTH region...that is a death sentence with time zone changes...Blackhawk you are spot on. I would like to see the old chairman...play 3 hours away. I am sure IU will get the latest game to as the 4 seed. If Connecticut and West Virginia have their worst seasons, why not Northwestern for a change?

      Hopefully it stays north of us, thankfully we are only in the 3-6 or 4-8 bands (depending on what you read).

      My best friend is looking at "24+". I just emailed him some helpful advice: "Don't be a hero. Remember to bend at the knee when lifting large glasses of scotch in your den."

  22. Getting a Colt's poster in the mail was a ray of sunshine in an otherwise cold, miserable week. My thanks to Nadine and the Colts for everything they do to show the fans how much they care about them. Even, the postage to mail all these posters has to be expensive as it cost $2.12 just to mail one to me. Thanks again and GO COLTS!
