    The trees around here dump ALL their leaves every autumn. A few palm fronds seems like no big deal vs. leaves blanketing your entire lawn, your car, your roofs, plugging your gutters and culverts and sewer grates. And this goes on over several weeks, they don't all drop at once.

    A "few"? Try a huge PILE larger than a pickup truck, so large that it required removal by a city crew.

    Just heard thereto-- very much the legend, he was (IIRC, Michael Douglas is one of the only ones left of that legendary Hollywood family)!

    Indeed, and Michael Douglas had his own brush with his bout of throat cancer a few years back!

    It's the old reminder that none of us are getting any younger, in action.

    CHEERS! :)

    Quite true-- I'm not getting any younger (I'll be 40 next Jan. 3).

    I guess Olivia de Havilland is the last of the actors of Hollywood's "Golden Age".

    Well, things have been up and down for me lately. I moved back to South Carolina from Florida 3 weeks ago. My mother has had some health issues. So I moved back up here to help her. Thats not the annoying part. The annoying part is, I have been trying to find a job up here and I took assessments for one this morning and was notified I qualified to move to the next step in the process. This, Only to find out that I have to Pay for the training myself and buy the equipment which was not disclosed when I was on indeed.com applying

    Instead of taking my wife to dinner for Valentine's Day, I'm stuck at work pulling a double shift. I got here a bit after 3:30 this morning and will not get to leave until 8:30 tonight.

    Shouldn't your wife be the one who is writing this post? :D

    She might even be more annoyed than you! :laugh:

    What annoys me the most is dirty and not well maintained toilets. I just can't stand it.

    And once again, I'm stuck at work pulling what will most likely end up being a 14-hour if not a double shift. This past Monday was just shy of 15 hours.

    I hope you’re getting paid by the hour- salary employees give up a bunch of their time to the company.

    I'm hourly.

    I got suckered into a salaried management position way back in the late 90s. I ended up working a lot of weekends, long days, and a few 24-hour shifts. When I did the math, I ended up making significantly less per hour than what my actual hourly wage was at my previous position with that company. Even though the base salary was more than what I made hourly on paper, once I begin working all the unpaid overtime, I effectively took a pay cut.

    That is called wage theft and there are organizations who's mission is to stop it.

    Blood glucose levels mostly in the double digits for over two weeks now. Any insulin dose increases appear to sort of work for a day or two, then my bg is right back up again. They're over 12 BEFORE breakfast, ffs!! :angry:

    For H1C blood glucose average comparison, my two weeks average in the first half of February was a typical 6.7, the last two weeks, 10.1!!!!

    I haven't even been sick this winter, and in any case, my blood glucose levels have never been so much in the double digits for this long!

    Can very good blood glucose control really up and desert THIS fast after 20+ years? I've also lost weight over compromised meals.

    Tomorrow, I have an appointment with my endocrinologist. I'm really stressed about this! :(
