    Default October chitchat

    I don't know how it got to be October already but it did.

    What have you been up to? What's on your mind?

    I keep hoping we'll get news of Jeanie. And that renee will be able to check in. There are other people who pop in now and then who haven't popped in for quite a while. It would be nice to hear from them.

    Linda, I hope John is improving.

    I'm on my way to the doctor today for a required diabetic foot exam and a flu shot, and I probably will pick up a special container for a test the doctor wants--a 24-hour urine test. It looks as if the ride situation will work out well, and the weather isn't too hot or too cold, and that's good too.

    I paid the bills yesterday just in case the flu shot wipes me out this evening, when I would normally be paying those 4 bills.

    Hope everyone is staying safe and well.

    Thank you for starting the month off, Agate. Rabbit, rabbit. Any good luck that comes I will share.

    I had no reaction to this years senior flu shot. May the force be with you.

    It’s a sad time of the year - nothing to plant after the garlic. I will have microgreens under growlights later in the year and am doing sprouts in jars in the kitchen now but that is all of my gardening.

    Thanks Agate for getting us started for October.

    What the heck is going on with my computer? Anyone get up to a completely different setup this morning. I am not talking about how it is normally updated. This time it did away with "WORD" which I use for my passwords. I have a ton of stuff in there.

    It also did away with my favorites - all of them. I had to put this site in to search to get to it and I can't figure out how to save it. I got to my bank by putting in the banks name and looking it up. Fortunately, I remember my password for there and here. They changed my settings from the side to the bottom of my computer. It is totally crazy. How can I get my passwords back in word and how can I get my favorites bar back? Anyone know?

    Flu shot me wiped me out for half the day only.

    Virginia, maybe you were hacked....you migh have to hire someone to help you recover. Nothing worse than computer problems . Life was easier before them!

    Lots going on here medically speaking. Still checking in with you all though, waiting for news on Jeanie and Renee.

    I wonder if you , ANN have any interest in a solarium. Like a porch completely glassed in. Some plants might survive there?
    And there are always house plants :)

    Howie, wasn't there some question a while back about whether you're on Medicaid? I can't recall how it was resolved. You probably are on it but I think you'd know because there's usually a number on a card that you sometimes are asked to present at any clinic or doctor's office, or you're supposed to remember to present it if they don't ask.

    If they already have you in their system at the clinic or doctor's office, they may never bother with asking about the card or the number though. You might want to ask your doctor's office whether they have evidence that you have Medicaid.

    Virginia, I believe you have Windows but can't recall what version. I can't be of much help with your questions but I have Windows 10, and have had things like that happen after an upgrade has been done. They do these upgrades really often, and some of them take hours to do. You might not know they've done one unless you happen to be noticing at the time when they're doing it, and later you might wonder why everything has changed.

    I just change it all back but it's a nuisance. You have to dig around in the Settings section of whatever it is you're trying to change.

    Thumbs up

    I have Windows 8.1, and had to struggle to keep that. I had Windows 10 for a few days, and hated it. But when this computer stops working, I may be forced to use Windows 10. That is what all the newer computers come with.

    I spent today calling Comcast, and my old doctor. I was going to switch to a new doctor, and they wouldn't refill the Gabapentin. So I went back to my old doctor, and have an appointment on the 20th.

    So now, or soon, I'm going to eat. I made some fresh coleslaw. Payday tomorrow, or Saturday, and I'll do my shopping. All my bills have been paid, so I'm free from here on.

    Everyone have a pleasant evening.

    I've been busy what with the trip to the doctor last week for the diabetic foot exam and the flu shot, then getting over the flu shot, followed by problems with the Life Station system, and tomorrow I'm on my way to the orthotic shoes place to see about new diabetic shoes.

    I have a message from Ralph that I hope to post some time very soon.

    No word from Virginia lately, and the hens are about to gather in a hen party.
