Re: Laurie

Thanks, Robin. :-) I've gotten tens therapy at the chiropractor's, but maybe I should get one of those traction thingies to have at home. Sounds like we're close in age-- I just turned 60 on the 6th. Alvin's music makes me feel like I'm 17 again, too! 1969 "was a very good year", to quote the Sinatra song... ;-)

Laurie, I admire your attitude. I always take things far too personally. I feel your pain re the neck arthritis. I recently obtained a tens unit and one of those over-the-door traction devices which help immensely , although I doubt they can help with the temperature changes.

Re: Laurie

I was going to take a vacation from the board, at least for a day or two, but of course, despite waking up with a bad headache, I was curious to see what may have been written in this thread since I last posted. I appreciate your good intentions, Dave, but I find I can't resist commenting that it wasn't arguing politics that caused the problem here last night. It was the point at which Dale let loose with overt and seemingly hostile personal insult-- that I've allegedly been "blasting" people on the board and then "snuggling up" to them when they agree with me, that I "always" misquote them, making their comments about me when they're not, indulging in "paranoia", etc.-- all of which was so startling and hurtful that I couldn't help but defend myself. NONE of that was fated to be simply because we were talking politics! His attacking me personally among friends in a public forum just because I was debating Obama with him more stringently or successfully than he was apparently comfortable with is not OK with me, and if I can't say so in reply, then to Hel with it all. It was wrong of him, deeply offensive to me, and it just wasn't in me to back down. I wanted him and everyone who was reading to know exactly what I thought of it, though I sought to word myself reasonably, if angrily and with characteristic forthrightness. I don't believe in sweeping things under a rug. Nothing gets learned that way. This kind of sorting-out process needs to happen after something like this, in my view, or the whole thing was in vain. Dale's insults were extreme, unwarranted, and I think an apology is an order.

Laurie, what Dale does't realize is that comparing the Prez. And fmr. Prez. Carter, is like comparing Carter and poppy ( Read my lips..) Bush. Arguing politics or religion is death to a friendship. Don't fall for it you two!

Happy Birthday Laurie.

I will be 60 in April. I look forward to it. My youngest son is getting married two days after my birthday. I will be spending my b-day alone with my two sons walking around Manhattan, which is my favorite thing to do there.

I spent over $2,000 at the chiro getting tens treatments at $50 per 15-minute treatment. It helped a lot, but I stopped because that is a lot of money. You can imagine how upset I was to find that a very good quality home unit can be purchased online for about $30 or $40. You may need a prescription, I am not sure. But, now whenever I feel a flare-up coming on, I zap myself with the tens unit and it never develops. I was almost in despair and now I am happy as a lark.

As for Alvin and his music.... this morning I noticed that I have the smile of Mona Lisa on my face at all times. It feels so good to have his music and his face and his voice running through me like a river, every waking moment.

It is good to know that I am not alone in cherishing those juicy feelings of young love (and other things ). I wonder if men can really know just how powerful Alvin's attraction is for women.
