Ate myself into a stupor

Thanks to my youngest daughter and her hubby, I managed to gain back, in just two days, most of the weight it took me months to lose.
Oh well.
I thanked my son-in-law for yet again another wonderful Christmas.
He does most of the cooking. [more]

Re: Oatmeal hell, IBUPROFEN

Brooklyn,

Makes sense right? Inflammation being the root of all evil so an anti-inflammatory is like Batman right?

I'm anxious to see anything else on this...

Re: Oatmeal hell, IBUPROFEN

And then just a couple days ago, there was another research paper talking about ibuprofen adding 11 years onto your life.

Re: Homeless Man Gets $100: What He Does

There's a lot of people that are just victims of circumstance," And they didn't go homeless because they're lazy. It could be a divorce, and one thing leads to another. A man sells his boat, his home, and all of a sudden he finds he has no [more]

Well, I certainly didn't do any of that. I just went along for the ride, shlepping him to and from restaurants on the weekends, paying for expensive drums and otherwise holding the watering can over his impressive IQ.

That's what I, too, think caused the high score. Since then, while still bright, he hasn't shown genius potential.


What exactly do you consider genius potential. Just curious.

My friend's son was a "genius" and he's [more]

Re: James Wood on Sharpton

I will start getting social security checks in May so I might take some trips down to Vero Beach for some short vacations but for now that is all I can hope for.

Re: James Wood on Sharpton

We might be related? Do you have any German ancestry? There are a lot of crazy Germans. Most of the Germans I worked with had a screw loose. <grin!>

Re: James Wood on Sharpton

My lifelong dream since I was nineteen years old was to live in a 55+ retirement community in Vero Beach, Florida.

Well, what's stopping you?

I love where I live as it's very close to the ocean. Have always lived close to water. [more]

Re: James Wood on Sharpton

I've also taken several online Asperger's tests and I test well into that spectrum too. <grin!> In our family the genius and crazy genes are linked, probably real close on the same chromosome, so if you get one you usually get the other. I [more]

Re: James Wood on Sharpton

Parents can make a big difference in all directions. I feel very bad reading Brooklyn talk about how she and her siblings were browbeaten and given such a negative view of their potential worth from a very young age. It is something that doesn't just [more]

Re: Socialism fails again

It frustrated me no end that Romney didn't effectively respond to challenges--at least the way I think he should have responded.

He was smart and competent enough to be a solidly effective president but that--and his funny walk--did him in. [more]

Re: Long distance commuter

Somehow, being away from the family from 4am in the morning till 9pm at night doesn't seem to be enabling too much family time.

Re: James Wood on Sharpton

I've gone through life just slightly smarter than average, pretty much just a B average all the way through. I've taken about 5 of those online I.Q. tests and my I.Q. always comes out ~ 130. Probably pretty close to true. Not quite good enough for [more]
