    Sorry to hear you've not been well too Linda.
    That sounds like the same sort of thing my brother in law had a couple of weeks ago.
    He had excruciating stomach pains in the night - no V or D but he was hospitalised because of his complicated medical history. They thought it may have been heart related, but in the end put it down to something viral.
    He has been fine since and hope you make a full recovery too.

    Thanks Carol, it's just a cold.
    I'll be fine when I can get a good nights sleep.

    Definitely colder here. We've had some frost in the mornings and possible snow forecast for hilly areas this week but mainly heavy rain for the next couple of days.
    I've brought my plants in too.

    I've not seen that in our pharmacies but I have some Benylin for tickly coughs.
    Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

    I've been using a heating pad and tonight my daughter said I should be using ice - 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off. So I 'm sitting here right now with frozen peas on my back.

    Good morning I hop everyone wakes up feeling much better today. It’s a very cold 20 degrees (f) here this morning.. it’s a rare dry cold for us though so it doesn’t feel to bad. Looks like sunshine ahead and a high of 50.. I’ll be working mostly outdoors today and I think I’m looking forward to it. Cinder has proven to be a wonderful companion and is doing well learning all the things a puppy should.. oddly enough, she barks a lot when she wants something. Not sure if this is something she will outgrow but it’s not a habit that is common in her breed... mostly, I find it cute and endearing but when your trying to enjoy a snack it’s a bit annoying

    Yep! Had therapy yesterday so I am a little sore. I can deal with exercise sore. It's the daily pains that wear me down.

    Oh man. That's beautiful! I see why she would want to put it up so early.

    Yesterday we beat a weather record that had been in effect since 1920. We made it up to 81F. The next 10 days or so will be in the 70s, nights in the upper 40s and lower 50s. This is a VERY warm Autumn for this neck of the woods.

    I like to watch The CBS Evening News with David Muir, and the weather map for the eastern half of the U.S. is pretty scary!

    Global warming is very scary!
    The met office people have been trialing some new long range forecasting method/equipment and It is said that our winter will be the worst since 1962 - a Beast from the East on steroids!! We'll soon find out how accurate they are.
