    Best wishes for a good Easter to all!

    Anne, I wonder if that will happen to me one day. Still at the stage of coping with the daily pain. I hope to walk more this summer. I bought myself a little dog last summer in the hopes of walking more, but the plan failed...

    The strangest thing happened this evening..I was in the rocker in a semi-reclined position watching TV and I tried to re-adjust my position and when I moved my leg I felt & heard a snap in my knee..it was very painful and now my knee is just sore and I can walk without the cane & no pain...I'm going to be very conscious of my walking and movements until I get home to see the DR..You have no idea how relieved I am..

    Givio, have you ever used a TENS unit? I usually travel with it in case I need it but It needs new wires..Check it out on Ebay..Years ago you needed a script for it...not any more..it really helps with the pain..I used it a lot after the first knee replacement...helps with swelling too...I feel so much better knowing I'll be able to pack up for the trip home this Wednesday.. Good nite all..H.

    I can't take any antibiotic like Cipro, and levaquin. Three times when on them it wasn't long until I had a ligament tear. It also is hard, because it knocks out a lot of antibiotics. I have a cane put back too for those days I need it.

    Junebillie, Last October I has taken Levaquin and ended up not being able to walk because of it..I stopped taking it after 3 days and had to have PT for a Month..it did something to my leg in the calf area...Never again..The TENS is a gadget that sends pulsating electric thru the pads placed on the area you place them..very gentle and it really helps..

    I never heard of a TENS unit. I think I need to help my muscles to be stronger...

    Hey Ya'll. I wanted to jump in here & say that I looove my tens unit! I use it on my back when it acts up. DH hates it. He has been bad enough a few times that he was willing to use it, but he claims that it just hurts. I think he decided that it would hurt. LOL

    We are gonna go back to Midland tomorrow. I mostly did yard work this trip. We did get some faux wood blinds to put in the dinning room behind my lace curtains. Gosh it looks lovely & cuts down on that hot west sunlight!

    Honchey I hate to hear that. The last time I took Levaquin, I was walking through my living room, and suddenly went down on the floor with what felt like literally someone had taken a hammer and hit me as hard as they could in the calf of one of my legs. I couldn't walk for a while after that. So now it is on all my medical records to not be given that drug.

    We have a unit like the tens, but I don't know if that is what it is. We place these little pads on where it hurts, and it sends little vibrating pulses, and we can make them stronger or lighter. I haven't used it in awhile. I have just been on lots of meds.

    Junebillie, It is a TENS unit..it helps so much..when I used to vaccum the carpets I would place them just below & above my waist and I didn't hurt later in the day like I would if I didn't use it..I used it on my ankle after surgery and around my knee after surgery..it helps in reducing the swelling also. I like the rectangle pads better than the little square ones..more coverage.

    Hiya everyone. and happy anniversary to both Givio and NS. Honchy, I am so sorry to hear about your pain. Three years or so ago when I was starting to feel pain in my knees, I had started to take stuff like condriton and all those other things to help with arthritis. Last year, I started to use a product by Bronson Pharmaceuticals, called Vital (collagen). It is a liquid and you take 3 drops in water before eating in the morning. It runs abou 30.00 for a month supply. After 3 bottles, all my pain has vanished, it is amazing. I guess it depends on what stage you are at. I don't take pain killers at all, I would rather suffer lol. Anyway, I do take some lovely vitamins from the same company and now take collagen in capsule form. I am going to see if it's affective as the liquid. I also take Hyaluronic Acid, which is also good for the joints. ....

    I have been living in a homeless state lol. My entire kitchen has been demolished but I am managing with cooking etc. The tile is going to be layed tomorrow and hopefully we will be able to move back into the kitchen and den by next week. The cabinets still have to be installed also. We also had to re-plum the entire house and the electric panel had to be re-done and up to code. When it rain it pours. Starting with the kitchen and then all hell broke loose lol...but not to worry, all has been done so far and by next week, I will be in heaven and will be able to access my machines and paints or whatever mood grabs me.

    Also FYI, hubby found an article in the paper. Seems that a new kind of hacker/s are out there called, "Ransome" The FBI says to just pay them if you want to access your files. What this ramsome does is lock down you files and you can't access anything until you pay them. ....so do not download anything free, music or otherwise or open emails etc. ..until they can find a way around Ransome....

    Anne, hope you had a safe trip home. Rosie, I'm also living in a construction (destruction?) zone. But today is a fun day--I'm off to the Quilting & Sewing Expo in Cleveland with 3 quilty friends cash and credit card in hand. I haven't bought fabric in a year (not that I need any). I'm excited!!! Have a great day ladies and I'll report on my trip later.

    Rosy, Maybe it only appears that way for you-- that 'cabinets' is highlighted-- because it doesn't show it highlighted on my monitor....

    Honchey, I believe Katybob is learning Microsoft 10 on her computer. I want to wait until i get one that takes voice commands.. . and let it figure out the 'how' of things.

    The mule mail train finally delivered a packet of anniversary cards and a surprise from QB folks here; boy, did I ever need it today. Out of chocolate in the house, except for chocolate ice cream, and I tried a bowl of that. thanks Anne, Carrie, Jeanie,Jan, and Gladys. (the written notes were lovely and thoughtful to read and enjoy, too!)

    Still too cold here to garden, so I am enjoying working in the QB room with my Hibiscus Stack 'n Whack project. Have seven out of 39 octagons made now. Gotta get going becasue five more S & W are in totes to do and they take a while to finish...hope by the end of the year, I have them done.

    May you all have a good April in your locations. My new hair saloon is next day to a quilt show....how lucky is that?

    I've never been to a quilt show, but it's on my to-do list...

    Anne, I hated Windows 8 with all the tiles and the swiping things into the corners of my screen with my mouse. I much rather click on things in Windows 10. I was thrilled that they took away the swiping! I guess it's ok to do on a cell phone, but even there I'm not keen on that method of moving/opening things.

    My FART to the Quilting Expo in Cleveland was VERY interesting LOL. Just the trip to Cleveland: it was so windy on the turnpike that traffic was slowed down because no one could pass the semis--they were being blown all over the place. We got to the Expo Center at the same time 4 busloads of passengers arrived, waited in line to enter and when we got in it was so crowded we couldn't get into the booths to see the merchandise. What to do? Eat!! So we did and by the time we finished the crowd had thinned out and we had a great time. I think I bought one of all the mini paper piecing patterns in the building--probably have 25 new patterns to work on. Lots of 30s fabrics and repros and patriotic fabrics were displayed. I don't use any of those so spent my time at the various batik vendors. Actually only bought 3 1 yard cuts and 4 FQs. Then the wind blew us home. Had a great time, it was just nice to be with other quilters. (My non-quilty friends love when I give them something but otherwise their eyes glaze over when I talk about quilting LOL). Already looking forward to next year.

    Nina I'm glad you liked your package. Anne & I were so nervous about it; we consulted your friend Quilter65 for advice. Enjoy!!

    Yep, she played her part well, even suggested a trip to MSQS or DM. No date set yet, depends upon her calendar and when she can. PC is ready to go to the LA, so that is progress. Now FW 2 blocks are on deck to work on tomorrow.

    EVeryone ahve a good week.

    Happy birthday, Jeanie!

    I have to tell you all about the strange weather here. It's been very windy & gusty since Thursday. Saturday was windy but 50*, sunny, beautiful day. Started raining about 6pm--very heavy rain & wind. When it stopped about 7:30 the sun came out and there was a beautiful rainbow--stretched all the way across the sky. About 9pm it started snowing. Woke up this morning to 2" of snow!!! And it's baseball's opening day in Pittsburgh--they'll have to shovel the stadium to play LOL. Wow-spring in western PA.
