Re: Interesting but depressing...

Good timing with that post, I was just wondering if a study taking half of these people and doing a fecal transplant from a person with a higher metabolism might reap some increases in theirs.

Re: Enhanced Life Estate Deed

This sounds like The Ladybird Deed in Texas. My mom's lawyer set this up, I am her only living child. At her passing, her home passes directly to me without going through probate.

Re: Update

You are certainly the best person to make that decision and it is the right one, no matter what it is. Enjoy your boy.

Re: Car loan started

You sound like me. We have 2 Civics, a 2000 (mine) and a 2001 (DH's). His has much fewer miles than mine. I just did the last major repair (timing belt/water pump, and all that entails) that I am going to do. I am hoping that this gets me another [more]

Re: Costco VISA

We are phasing out our Costco AMX and have already gotten the AMX Blue to replace it. I've had some sort of AMX since '86 and like to have one. We'll use the Costco visa for Costco and whichever card gives us the biggest rebates on gas and [more]

Re: When to let them go...

I feel your pain as I have been there too many times, as well. I, too, have felt (with retrospect) that I have waited too long at times. My new rule (we'll see how it goes the next time) is to look at whether the pet seems to have a will to go [more]

Re: Living below your means

Some people like to buy "things".

Some people like to buy "experiences."


I feel I lean more toward the experiences. I have lost a lot of people in my life, and with weekly visits to the nursing home I see [more]

Re: pills, grrr

We weren't dealing so much with medication issues but just that mom was needed eyes on her at least once a day. We had someone there for a few hours daily while we worked, but then eventually had to take her to an adult day care. Saturdays, someone [more]

Re: pills, grrr

IIRC, you said Home Instead doesn't give pills. Can they remind him? Can you call each day and remind him or ask the care worker to check to see if he took his pills?

OK, I must be very naive, but how (and why) in the world do you get gluten in scrambled eggs?

Re: Tyree's recovery from pancreatitis

Totally agree with Richard, if he's doing well, don't rock the boat. So glad to hear he is better.

Re: The Scale Keeps Moving

About 6 weeks ago I reduced my sugar to about 90 % (estimate) of my usual diet. I stopped putting honey in my daily tea (using Stevia for the moment). I am a candy addict and also addicted to kettle/caramel corn. So, no candy of any kind and got an [more]

Re: Tyree has pancreatitis

Talk to your vet, but I would go on how he is feeling and ease him back into the dog food from the cooked food over several days. The vet may suggest following up on some of the bloodwork, too.

Re: Tyree has pancreatitis

I'm so sorry your Tyree is going through this. I remember that almost all the cases of pancreatitis we saw at the clinic where I worked were from dogs being fed fatty people food. We saw spikes in cases over the holidays when pets got more treats [more]

Re: Eggs are not evil

Good, then I won't bother looking them up. I do know that my physician understands perfectly the numbers on my yearly labwork. I have no idea why you would assume she doesn't. You'll likely dispute this, of course....
