It is COLD and sunny here in northern California this bright a.m. I have a load of laundry in the washer and will finish two more before my job is complete! I talked myself into making a run to Starbucks to get the classic sausage egg sandwich. Yummo!

A great movie that was made some years ago for TNT is The Day Lincoln Was Shot. If you're interested in the subject, I recommend it. Very good movie.

Lincoln is getting a lot of press these days. I don't which is better, the Steven Speilberg Lincoln, the NatGeo Lincoln or the vampire-slayer Lincoln.

He does think there is probably a little bit of neuroapathy in her leg since she has been having problems with it going numb and tingling for a while but he doesn't think that it would have gotten that much worse that quick.

Her writing is a little better today and her balance is okay but she seems to shuffle her right foot instead of lifting it up when walking.
Praying your mom continues to improve!

I had that option when I worked for freightliner and loved it!!!

I am just telling my colleagues just start making a paper trail of everything, if they want to to fire you, you want to take them down with you by showing their aren't doing their jobs. It is getting bad at that place, I really need to get out of there. My back is better today, just very tight, not painful. Thank you all for thinking of me.

Good night everyone.
I hope a better job comes along soon!

I read if a person stops eating meat for a long time that the body stops producing the means to digest it. I definitely have all the symptoms of having gotten some meat products. Sure hope I get over this so...I really am quite sick.....
I hope you are better!!! I can relate to this - I cannot eat any pork whatsoever or I am very ill for days. I've had this problem almost my whole life. One doctor says it is a food allergy and another says it is an intolerance.

That's a bummer that you don't get NatGeo. It was really good. I've always been a Lincoln fan and I learned a lot from it.
