    I loved my PT’s from when I was a kid with polio !! Every day face down they would paint my body with paraffin and come back in an hour. Any place where the wax was not broken that was the part of my body they worked on!!

    How long ya have the cold for ? I get my right ear implanted on the 16th of next month in Rochester will be at DD house till the 23. I will have it turned on around the end of April. Not in any hurry. I only wanted the operation so my GS could watch it being done as he is pre med. Hospital nixed that so they are going to video the operation and give me a dvd of it!! My total out of pocket expense is $20.00, my co pay for the 2 MD visits!

    went for implant for other ear today! Surgeon says all clear should have no problem with the insertion of electrodes ! I then met with my audi who had me” jump thru” all the hoops to prove I am profoundly deaf for insurance companies!! Hell anyone who knows me could do that!! LOL
    Now the waiting begins 3 to 6 months for ins approval! I have medicare and 2 private plans so all should be good! They did find some residual hearing in the right ear but very minuscule ! That is a good sign for the operation of the implant !
    However I am a pessimist and can not be disappointed no matter what happens! 20 tears ago everything went wrong and I laughed it off!!

    sg an external pulls a lot of power. You have to remember the power is divided by the # of devices. To prove/disprove this try running just the hdd from the hub. USB devices come with 2 power ratings you hub transformer may be the lower one. Just a thought

     
  • 08:06:53 am on October 2, 2016 | 0 | # |

    sg I have no idea about the hub/switch. However I do have some advice about the plugging/unplugging. I had to replace (well sent the mobo out for the soldering) the USB socket on DW laptop as she wore them out plugging flash drives,scanner,keyboard light etc. I now have a USB extension cord, it stays in and all items are plugged into that. Will save me a bunch of grief!!

    soundgod IME track ball are excellent with desktops but not too laptop friendly and I dunno why? I seriously doubt if Logitech will be able to help. I use a small wireless mouse with a tiny receiver and run it around on my thigh,bottom of laptop or desk depending on which laptop I am using.
    On one of my desktops my trackball would bring up the “run” command when both buttons we pushed at the same time. When I could not get another (same model) track ball to do it I called Logitech and was told that what was happening is impossible !

    A 21-year-old man wielding two handguns shot former “The Voice” contestant Christina Grimmie after a Friday night concert in Florida, and then fatally shot himself, police said Saturday.

    Grimmie, 22, died from her injuries from the shooting, which happened around 10:30 p.m. ET at The Plaza Live in Orlando. The singer had opened for the band Before You Exit and was meeting fans and signing autographs a half hour after the concert ended when she was shot.

    sg they give you a date for the new mri ? I can never have an mri due to the magnet in my skull. The newer implant have a removable magnet ! Minor procedure cut skin,remove magnet, get mri done, install magnet and stitch up scalp. On mine the implant would have to be removed and a new one installed on right side of skull as the cochlear has grown over the electrode cable. I read an article about how a child was just implanted he was fussing so his mom took the external hardware off and left it in the car ! You guessed it it was stolen ! Has zero value to anyone but the person it is set up for ! Any person trying to change the settings at a clinic (only place it can be done) will see alarm go off and “stolen” flash across the screen!

    sg It would be impossible to predict a persons post operative pain. What some would consider “mild discomfort” others would perceive it as “agonizing severe”.
    Not allowing change of original doctor make sense to me. Getting a second opinion from the VA is an excellent idea!
    Also me thinks you are pushing it to much ! “Damm the torpedo’s full steam ahead” (your usual style) is not the attitude for after surgery !! Hoping you get some meaningful pain relief soon!

    Yup sg that is the cause ! Saw an article about seniors getting those Oxycontin pills and reselling them to get back the co-pay for the next script. When mine went missing after I let a worker used the bathroom I had to wait a week before MD could issue me a refill. The bottle was a full script that I had never used (only as required) but based on the way the script was written Federal law prevented a refill until “all was used” (#of pills divided by # per day).

    Damian Do you know where your fuel is refined ? Most states with refineries have lower prices due to less cost of transportation. Exxon (Esso) used to have pipe lines from refinery to local company owned stations. During the embargo of the 70s some in the know guys tapped the lines and got free fuel.I have only seen your price in one station (Delta) I paid $151.9 yesterday.

    Here is a new one for me ! DW booked a flight to FL last month, all day yesterday checking the Jetblue site it kept showing “on time”. Half hour before we were to leave for airport it showed “delayed” and a 1 hr later take off. Then DW gets a whole flurry of text “flight is 2 hr delay” then a few minutes later flight is “on time” but at a different airport !So now I have to race to the airport in upstate NY which I had not been to in30 years when it was a military airport! Finally find it 1/2 hr before take off. Drop DW off at the entrance and start home get 3/4 of the way home and I get a phone call her fight is 1 hr delay then I get home and get another call it is now a 2 hr delay and finally 3 hrs later they are in the air!! I have never heard of airports being switched ! What if we had left early for dinner before the flight we never would have made it to the alternate airport! How do they handle people arriving that have people waiting to pick them up at the original airport? Is this a common practice ?

Guy I know went to look at a boat asked if he could start the motors guy says sure 20 minutes later the boat had over 3 grand in damage simply because seller nor buyer knew that a garden hose had to be hooked up to the drive !

I am going up for a week to gut the new house we bought and meet with the architect to see if what we want can be done. We have to make a suite for my in laws when they come up from FL in warm weather. I also have to have a dock made so I can buy a 30 ft cabin cruiser to sleep in while working on the house !

    Last night my DD told me she won a $400. pair of sneakers on 12/04 and paid $200.0 via PP same night last day for delivery was 12/24 and the tracking number supplied showed no activity at USPS site. She sent seller an email and got a reply like this “Whoa lady lets not leave any negative feedback sneakers we dropped off at the post office and are enroute to you. Please be patient!” Guy has no feedback as a seller and supposedly this is his first sale. I told DD to cancel her order thru ebay and notify PP for a refund. I think the guy was just trying to string her along until it was too late to get a refund! Needless to say she went out and bought the sneakers for $400.. GS feet grow like a weed ! If the sneakers are tight he plays lousy basket ball as it is painful to run!!
