Gotta chime in on the meds comments! As a pharmacist, I'm always amazed at how many people don't know why they are taking the pills they're taking, nor to they want to listen to me when I counsel at the window. They always say, "my Dr. already told me about it". So I'll throw in a random but important fact that I know most physicians do not tell the patient. Then I get their attention. Worse than that, too many people look to a pill to solve their problems instead of looking at what the cause of the problem is. But pills are easier than doing the hard work to avoid going on them to begin with. Hard to believe that I'm a pharmacist that hates pills! I just think modern medicine has a very important role in helping people live a better and healthier life, but it is not the answer to every problem. Scarier still is how often mistakes are made (by everyone in the medical profession), and if the patient isn't paying attention, their life could be on the line. well, enough of my soapbox.

Bunny-so excited for your new opportunity!!!

Staci-positive thought sent your way for your hubby's job opportunity

Dana, you go girl! I was wondering if you would tell it like it is.

For sure there are mistakes made by everyone involved with taking care of the patient. That is very scarey. I could tell you story after story of the things I've seen done by others. Oh and you can count on getting a prescription if your doc says, "Do you have a prescription plan?" Also you can get any test you want from some doctors as long as you have some kind of insurance. Too many tests! Remember, Just because people have impressive initials behind their names doesn't mean they are the sharpest tool in the shed! Don't be afraid to speak for yourself. If you don't, who will? Every pill has it's place when needed and thank God we have them. Funny how the phamacist and nurse are pretty much advocating for less pills. Maybe we know a thing or 2!





Be Blessed,

Hi everyone. Been a busy past couple of days!
Peggy, I got my pattern off of the Caps for Good website. It's really easy, and I can make them within an hour or so.
Bunny, thank you! I try to keep up!
Staci, prayers for your husband!
Well, the past few days have boosted my confidence as a writer! I have published and continued to write a fanfiction, and I continue to get emails that so and so added your story to their favorites list or they subscribed to your story. That makes me so happy! I could just jump up and down over and over again! Then today, all of the art classes went to the Milwaukee Art Museum, which was a lot of fun. If a Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit comes to your town, see it! It was really interesting to see all of his drawings, and he was really into sustainability. And, he's from Wisconsin! I learn new things everyday! Okay, love to my porchies!
God's and Farmgirl's Blessings,

Hello My Porchies...what a long day! Great to see so many on the Porch. I got up early this morning [like 4:30] because hubby woke up early, which woke up both dogs, which woke me up to take the two on four legs out to go potty. Then I had a morning Dr.'s appointment on top of that and while in my Dr.'s waiting room, I had to prepare my Bible Study for tomorrow night, then I came home and did some light house work and took a looooong nap. Finished Bible Study tonight...and I just can't believe tomorrow is Thurs. already and the last day of March to boot. Some how March blew through on the winds and I missed it some how. LOL But if it will blow Spring into the North West I will be a happy gardener! ~ The dogs are starting to play more together. My female still has a problem sharing. She is very territorial when it comes to her dog food and her dog-bones but she wants hers and the puppies. She did this with our older dog too and she would go for the jugular to get what she wanted. She is a very alpha-female. ~ I did get my Mail-Art finished today...so, I accomplished something important (to me anyway)...and this week I have gotten caught up on all my correspondence with friends and pen-pals. ~ Think I will keep this short and sweet tonight and go read and have a cuppa tea. I so need to order so more Mocha Chocolate Kiss Tea. Yummo!
It gives me my choc. and tea fix in one fell swoop! Wonderful!

Hey, Good advice Ladies on Marriages and Medications! We do get into some really interesting discussions huh?


Love and Sweet Dreams To You All,

Good moring everyone! I'm not tired of all of your advice. I treasure it. This is one of the few places I have to come to for advice. I don't have many girlfriends close. My last marriage (the kids' dad) was horrible and I don't want another. Not that I think my guy would be bad in the way my ex was. But I have been questioning whether or not we will be happy together. I had an idea with the house the other day- to get estimates for the work that really needs to be done right away like the upstairs finished, windows, siding and heating/cooling system and checking into a home improvement loan. So I ran this by Jeremy. He's trying to avoid the conversation, but I've had enough of his running from things that need to be discussed.

Meds~ My son has started seeing a therapist a couple of weeks ago. The therapist said he has a defiant disorder. I can't remember now exactly what he called it and ADHD. The ADHD is mostly for an attention issue. The only time he really has a problem focusing his attention is when he is reading. If there is a lot of background noise he can't concentrate. This doctor wants him on some kind of pill so he can focus. Matt has a heart condition he's had since birth and takes and bp med to help keep from having surgery and a lot of those adhd meds he can't take. I told thta doctor he's NOT going to take and pill. I mean as long as everyone leaves the room and Matt has peace and quiet to read or someone to read it to him, he does just fine.

Oh poo I'm outta time. I'll be back later. Have a great day!
Hugs~ Melanie

Melanie, have you tried ear plugs for Matt to block out the noise? They have no side-effects and a much lower cost. They're worth a try.

Have any of you gals had to find the right policy and apply for Medicare plans? I used to work in the medical and insurance industry and understand all the mumbo-jumbo but my Lord...drug costs, co-pays, Advantage plans, Drug only plans, supplimental plans, Part A, Part B, Part C and Part D! It's enough to make your head spin!!! I finally have made a choice that fits our budget and medical history. As a courtesy, I contacted an insurance rep from another company who's been very "helpful" but agressive and was told I was foolish and she hopes I don't regret my choice but she was certain I will and soon. I thanked her for her interest and "caring attitude" and hung up. It has taken two full days and hours on the computer and phone that would have been a whole lot more fun sitting on the porch. I need a cup of tea, a hug and one big atta-girl pat on the back for getting it done and not killing anyone in the process. Keith concurs with my choice and that's validation enough but a girl friend hug would still be welcomed.

Hi Nancy!

Here's that big HUG for you! I haven't gone through this with Medicare yet, but I've been on the phone and computer the last couple of days trying to figure out my income taxes. My company started a Health Savings Account this year, and the IRS reporting for it is a nightmare of forms. I hate to break down and go to an accountant or H & R Block, but I may have to. Why does our government have to make everything so difficult?!?!?

Hi everyone. I know I have been MIA lately, however, am trying to keep up with the exchanges. May is my month for tea bag exchange and I am ready. For those of you participating in the exchange, please send me your addresses.

I need to say thank you for my tea and ornament. I know I have been terrible keeping up on the thank yous. Alot has been going on.

To make it short but sweet. The doctors have found a large tumor in my back and my L5 disc is degenerating causing a lot of pain. I am going to be leaving my job April 29 and work on getting better.

Hope to be more visible at that time.

Again... ready to go on May Tea exchange so please send me your addresses.

Thanks

Theresa

Luanne, thanks for the hug!

Theresa, I've been away from the porch for ages and need an explanation for the Tea exchange. I'd love to join. Also, my prayers are with you as you heal from your back problems. Hubby had a triple fusion 4 weeks ago and I understand how painful such conditions can be. Please keep us posted on your progress.

Afternoon everyone. Well I didn't get the opticians job. They called today and let me know they hired someone else. Rats! There is a job fair this weekend and I will check that out. I'm worried about my office computer abilities though. I'm going to do some online education today with Lynda.com to see if I can brush up. The beauty parlor said I can put stuff there so I'm also working on that. Yea! Maybe I'll sell something and keep my head above water. My kitties are doing great wandering outside. I was so stressed they would head off to parts unknown. But I think there are so many scary sounds they seem to be staying close by. We did have a visit from an un-neutered male cat. He was kind enough to spray my kitty window. Thankfully it was easy to clean up this morning.. no more kitty spray smell. Peeee uuuuu. Anyway, still on the job hunt.

Hello Porchies!

Wow! Things change so much so fast around here. I want you all to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers everyday. I try to stop by to read up on you all every day, but I don't have much time to post.

I had to help my DH's best friend move his family this week. They haven't been able to get a place to go to yet, so his kids are stayin some with his mom and some with his wife at the Ronald McDonald House. His newborn baby is in Riley Childrens Hospital right now. We are keepin his dog for him and storin some things for him.

We have 27 duck eggs on our kitchen table incubatin in a homemade incubator! Yea! I can't wait to see them start hatchin. We need ducks to get rid of the frogs in our pond. They are so loud you can't hear sittin on the porch at night. We had 11 wild ducks last year that got rid of them for us, but we want somethin to cut down the noise level.

I'll post a picture of our funny lookin incubator tomorrow night if I can get the picture thingy to work for me!

Good Morning Sisters,
I find that I have a few extra minutes this morning, so I got caught up with some reading and have some extra time to post, all thanks to my 15 y.o. DD over sleeping. Her school has a policy that if you get to school after 1st period has started then you are not allowed into class but have to sit in the cafeteria until 2nd peeriod. So, instead of rushing out the door so that she can sit in the cafeteria, she is eating breakfast and I will get her to school in time for 2nd period.

I bought a jacket at the thrift store yesterday. The jacket reminds me of you all! It is very colorful weaving with chickens and sunflowers, lots of red, green, blue and yellow! I have the usual blacks, grays and browns for work, but at least once a week I have to wear lots of color- usually red. Anyway, the jacket reminds me of you all because I don't know anyone else who would wear something this colorful and country to the office.

Darlene- thank you for the lovely birthday package! I am bringing one of the tea bags to work for my afternoon tea time. I have a large rubber tree plant on my front bay window seat and I have been adorning it with the wonderful ornaments from my MJF sisters. For now the book mark is draped over a branch.

Peggy- Snickers is a cutie! Now you can have a daily snickers and not be concerned about any calories! Glad that the house training is going well. Our dog does not play well with other dogs. Because she is so nig we don't efen try to introduce her to other dogs any more.

Angela- you must have a lot of frogs to need that many ducks! Will you eat/sell their eggs? My mom raised cjickens when we wewre growing up. She kept them in incubators and brooders in a spare room off the kitchen until it warmed up outside in the springtime.

Debtea- love the Bailey poem! So true of springtime.

Meghan- thank you for the Caps for Good website. That may be something we can use at work, the folks we support love to make things and give them away.

I am interviewing strong candidate for the thrift store today. She has 10 years of thrift store management experience and wants this position because she believes in the mission and ministry of the store and my employer! I have been praying for a mission minded person! I love working in the store, but I already have a demanding fulltime job and church/community commitments.

Please pray for my grandson, 16 month old Joshie. On Tuesday he had an assessment for early interevention services and he has several developmental delays- speech, eating, walking, interacting, and possibly a sleep disorder.

Okay, gotta run off to drop DD off in time for 2 nd period then to work.

Peace,
Lida

Sharon:smw5011 is the April ornament maker this month. Email her your addresses if you are in this swap.

BD girl for April is Me on the 28th! Yeah and OMG all at the same time! I'm the old chick on here. And you all thought all the creaking was from the rockers! Just sayin!

Bunny~my daughter just was interviewed for a work at home job she was connected to from a reliable state source. She posted her resume on tuesday, interviewed thursday and is starting online training on monday. I will let you know more as I know it. Just a thought.

Back later. Made an early meal. Meatloaf and mac and cheese. Also stuffed peppers cooking for tomorrow. I'll bring some to the porch. Help yourselves. Going to throw a peach cobbler in the oven and then eat. Just saw it posted on another forum. If it's good you will get some too!

Be Blessed,

I apologize for the numerous typos in my previous post. I am using an iPad for posting and there is no way to review the post for spell checking before posting. I thought that by typing slower I would catch the errors, but I was wrong. I can't edit in preview mode either.

Are any of you PA and NJ girls getting the snow this weekend? We just have rain.

Blessings to you all.

To the girls interested in the "TeaBags" Tea-Swap....we had a swapping of names back in December and picked someone to send out tea each month. The swap is closed. Sorry that you missed it...BUT...if you new gals want to start another one ...go ahead. I didn't realize how many girls would be interested in it. It was the first swap I ever set up. Tea is such a wonderful thing...I just love it!
Dana, I'm glad you spoke up. Amen Girl! Being a retired RxTech, I was avoiding saying anything for fear that I would write a "Book"....and nobody wants to read that. LOL Being an Herbalist, I too would rather people listen to their bodies and find out what the problem is. I use to tell people that pills were meant for temporary use, not to be taken forever. But people want a cure NOW and aren't willing to put in the effort or time to discover what really is the underlying problem. ....woops....there I go with the "Book." Time to stop...before I can't.
Lida, I would love to see that jacket. Sounds "Spunky" to me!
Angela, I can't imagine having THAT many frogs. I like frogs &toads....but not THAT many! Can't wait to see your incubator.
Well, it's 45/gray/cold wind/some sprinkles today. I need hot tea! ;P

Hello everybody! I'm supposed to be relaxing this weekend but so far its been racing around getting things caught up (sigh). We ran to Costco to fill my gas tank and to get some yeast so I could do some backing but discovered the store was closed. Thankfully the gas station was open so it wasn't a total waste of a trip. I did see a beautiful rainbow though. Wish I'd had my camera with me.

Judy - Yes, Netflix has a lot of british comedies and shows. Do you have a favorite british comedy or show? My uncle tortured me as a kid growing up making me watch british shows on the weekends when I spent the weekends with my grandma. I didn't get the humor back then but have learned to enjoy it now. My fiance originally thought Doc Martin was a bit dry but now he's watched a couple and has gotten the humor he is really enjoying them with me.

Meghan - did you know there are several Franklin Lloyd Wright houses here in Michigan? One of the lawyers I use to work for is writing a book about them and I helped him occasionally with it. There's also a museum I believe in Chicago. There's one house you can actually rent. His parents rented it for him for his honeymoon.

Angela - I'm so jealous! One of these days we'll get a place I can ducks and chickens.

Tomorrow I've volunteered to help chaperone 4 teenage girls for breakfast and then to get their nails done. My friend's daughter turned 15 today so she's having a party and sleep over with breakfast and nails tomorrow. Her daughter talks like an 80's valley girl for those of you old enough to remember them. Every other statment is "Like Oh my God" (with the valley girl accent) LOL Thankfully I have a 90 minute massage Monday to help me recover :O)

Here's a picture of our strange homemade incubator...



It's just temporary. We have the plans to make one out of a glass aquarium that will be much nicer and will maintain the humidity a lot better. I'm goin over to my mom's in the mornin to pick up my old aquarium. Then it'll be a lot easier to deal with.

I worry over those silly eggs like I'm the one who laid them!

Quack! Quack! LOL!

Hi everyone! It's been busy busy here!
Lida, I'm glad I could be of help. It's a really great cause, and it's so fun to make the caps!
Deb, thank you so much! It's a really great way to practice my writing and it's fun too!
RFM Tammy, now I want to find that house and stay in it!
Praying for everyone here!
So today was a lot of fun for me. Last night I spent the night at my friend's house, and today she had a dance competition. She's an Irish dancer, so it was cool for me because I've never seen Irish dancing up close before. If a show comes to your area, go see it! It is so amazing to watch. My friend placed in two of her five dances, and she was able to move up a level. I was so happy for her! I've also been keeping up my writing. I just can't believe that it's already April! Whew, time is flying fast!

Wow Darlene...It took me clear back to page #216 before I found Sharon's last post. Unless I missed a couple along the way. I kind of looked hit and miss. Hope she is still doing the ornament exchange. I sent her my address as you said. So, I guess...we will see huh?

Angela...that is one funny looking incubator...but hey if it works it works!! It looks like your
duckies have packed to go off on Vacation! lol

Megan...that is great that you went and supported your friend and her Irish Dancing. It is really
awesome to watch. So, can we read some of your writings? Are you blogging them somewhere? Would love to check your creativity out...I bet you are great at Word-smithing.

Judy...good Idea for the new girls to start a new Tea Swap. I hope someone takes that up as a challenge to do because we all know how much fun it has been so far for those of us who signed up.

Madame Butterfly...where have you flown off to? We are really missing you. Did you break a wing or run out of your favorite tea and so you're laying there all dehydrated and wrinkled? Are you still buried in snow??? Come back! Come back where ever you are!

Lida...don't worry about the spelling mistakes...we know you don't usually do that and even if you did, we could still figure it out! lol

Well girls...I am off to bed. Long day and bad weather. Hopefully I will make it to Church tomorrow.

Have a Blessed Day,
Peggy

Well, it was sunny this morning. LOL! I feel so bad that I have been MIA lately. I miss you guys so much! I'm super excited that this is my month for tea. I can't wait! I hope there is a Easter tea to send out. I'm going to check it out today. I told Mark today that I want to dye eggs for Easter. What is everyone else doing for it? I always get an Easter Lilly too. This weekend has been crazy. Jujube hurt herself. We found blood on her doggy pillow and one side of her face was swollen. We gave her some aspirin and she seems to be okay. The swelling went down. If she is not better by tomorrow, we are gonna take her to the vet. I also had a horrible case of food poisoning and insomnia. I woke up at midnight and didn't go back to sleep until last night. It was horrible! I'm prone to anxiety attacks so, besides puking my guts out, not sleeping, I was having a panic attack. What fun ;)

I might try to do a craft show this summer. I am trying to get into it. If not, I will wait till the next one. I'm also wanting to enter some embroidery into the state fair.

Well, that's about it in my world...

Good Morning! Ahh everyone's so busy. It is 71 outside all ready. We are supposed to get close to 80 today! YAY!!! But it won't last long as it's suppose to drop back down into the 40's and 50's next week.
So my guy has asked me to work up our budget so he can see what our bills will look like. I forget that it's not enough for him for me to tell him it will be ok and we can do this. He needs to see it in black and white. I have a good ballpark on the numbers but he's right. We need to be sure. So that's what's on my agenda for today.

I love to watch Irish dancing, Megan. It was nice of you to go and cheer on your friend.

Judy~ I would like to read your "book" sometime. I watched Foodmatters the other night on Netflix. Very interesting. Makes you think.

Angela~ love the incubator! LOL You are so creative! Have fun with your egg babies. :)

Well ladybugs, I'm off to go work on the budget.
Have a great day!
Hugs~ Melanie
