so, what is this woot clue thing anyway? sounds like it requires staying up for the wooting hour though, which I just can't do anymore.

Yeah, I start an hour before the rollover to new sales.

Here's a link to the start of one of the better games we've had.

They're fun and keep me hopping to answer the questions.

Yeah, no kidding!

G'morning peeps! Just working on the coffee and catching up to the happenings this morning, really.

Seems mellow enough.

I'm just hanging out, really.

Interesting. Any sort of prize for the winner, or is it just something to occupy the time while everyone waits for the rollover?

Hiya everyone. Great news on son-in-law's scan - no new growth while he has been off chemo! Everything has pretty much stayed the same. He has to have the bile duct stent which is a plastic material replaced in another month. However, it did not immediately corrected the highly elevated bilirubin counts, so they are unsure if he indeed needs it or what the cause actually was. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers - I do believe they have helped.

Windy day again - sunny and warm. Going to the beach to watch the kids who skip school every windy day like this to surf. It is not as intense as Sunday, so I doubt the waves will be as huge, but I do love it when the Gulf is so active.

Later. Hope everyone stays well.

That's wonderful news. We'll keep thinking and praying, maybe it'll stay this way.

The usual scandal, outrage, new discussion topics, etc.

I also just gave myself the 'at home stress test'...Prepping bikes for a weekend ride, filled the tires and then set off around the block--downhill--without checking the brakes.

Didn't think of THAT until I was halfway down the hill and still picking up speed.

Oops.

(Wore off a bit of the toe on my shoes. It worked. Yay, Flintstones!)

When we used to vacation in Virginia, I was always amazed by the people riding bikes uphill on the Blueridge Parkway. I need even - and I do mean even terrain. Good luck on your trip. It is great exercise!

I am afraid to try to ride my bike. I don't think I will ever feel safe from reinjuring my foot. No guts, no glory.

Thanks Poof, Inky, and AZ. It was a huge worry that the existing tumors would grow with that length of time off chemo.

Finally watched it and posted on facebook.

The guy also needs to make a shorter video.

Hope it works.

Yep. I've had 2 pretty spectacular bike crashes in my life. First, I was 5 or 6, and wiped out on gravel. Knocked myself out. Second one, I was 21, riding at night, in the snow. Was crossing the road, car was coming, I went to get on the sidewalk. Didn't realize there was no ramp. Wham, 8 inch curb. Threw myself over the handlebars, banged up my chin, bent the forks on the bike and ruined the tire.

This time, I had time to look around and think! Still scary. But, at least now the bike is down. I'd like to get back in the habit of exercising daily--either biking or jogging. Seems stupid to have them and not use them!

Oh good!

Klozit - I'm glad you got good news about SIL!

I miss having a bike, sorta. We keep saying we are going to get a set of bikes for the grown-ups, but it never quite happens. Orc got a couple bikes that needed work off a garage sale, but they are so heavy that I can only put one on the bike rack for the car at a time and even then I barely made it three blocks (granted it's a crappy bumper rack). Given that, I can barely lift the stupid bike, it's like they are filled with concrete or something. Heaviest dang things! I had a few bad wrecks, one as a kid I broke my thumb after hitting a parked car. When I first came to college I did the curb thing Mayvn mentioned except it was a sunny afternoon and I was on the main road in what passed for rush hour. I also am not comfortable on hills and we are in hill country here. The sun issue, and my back not liking the bike posture is not helping. I keep telling my husband I'm going to buy a nice adult trike, but it's never in the budget.

For those who doubt my lifting capabilities, I am super mom and regularly carry in excess of 50 pounds.

Turns it it's exactly that. I have strained something in my arm or shoulder.

gotta see the regular doc for that I guess. Just glad it's not my heart.



It would be a shame to have such a good heart damaged.

A good day in the Ice household, Mrs Ice just texted to tell me she won a ipod touch and I won a multimeter and some other stuff @ the training I was at today.
I guess I'd better go over and check to see if the oldsters are still breathing...

Dinner was not what one would call a resounding success tonight. First of all, I was somehow off by an hour and dinner was ready at 5:30 instead of 6:30. Good thing husband came home early from fishing. Or maybe not because he said he didn't like it. I know I've had it before and he did like it because I wouldn't have typed it up and put it in my recipe book if he hadn't liked it. Greek fritatta. Too bad, because I did like it.

Had the carpets and a couple chairs cleaned today. They look good. Or as good as 20-year old carpet can look. But I didn't notice till they left that the couch is about a foot and a half from where it's supposed to be and, with my back, I can't help husband move it. PITA

I'd come over and move it if I lived in the area. Can you call a child or grandchild, or have the whole issue wait until you are babysitting again?

Ok, Ver1 wants to observe refraction for her science fair project, we decided to do the experiment/observations next week in my dad's in-home theater since it's a room with no external light. Does anyone have any suggestions for fun things to shine a flashlight at that will make the light bend? All the fun things I can think of (thick gells, colored plastic sheets) I don't have. I might buy a prism from Amazon, but any other ideas?
