  1. So glad you're getting better. Take care!
  2. How in the world did I forget Kung Fu!? I never missed it. I loved that show. Thursday nights at 9---right after The Waltons.
  3. I love westerns! The Virginian--the theme song was great! Cimarron Strip High Chaparral The Rifleman And, of course, the movie "Tombstone" and the miniseries "Lonesome Dove" and any John Wayne western.
  4. Andiemay? And I can't remember the name he used, but his avatar was Gene Simmons?
  5. I feel like I'm bumping my own thread, but I can't let the kind wishes go unacknowledged! Thank you all!
  6. Thank you, Darlene and Reid! I'm 50 now and kind of sad that a whole third of my life is over.
  7. Thank you so much, everyone! I haven't been here very often lately and I really appreciate all the kind wishes. I've said it before and I'll say it again--you guys and gals are the greatest!!!
  8. Late again! I gotta check in more often. I hope you had a great birthday with many more to come!
  9. Wonderful news! It feels like we've all been holding our breath.
  10. I hope everyone is ok. It's apparently widespread, but nothing here in east Tennessee. So far anyway. Be safe!
  11. Breaking on another site right now. All over from NC to Toronto to Ohio. Anyone here affected?
  12. I haven't been here either--tied up starting new business and working long hours. Popped in today and saw this. Miriam, you're in my thoughts and prayers. Be strong and please get well. Kim
  13. Excellent posts, guys! Keep going.
  14. Anything on bread. And any kind of bread. I love bread! I'm a sandwich gal from way back because I don't really sit down for meals except on holidays. I'm a "grazer". Appetizers can also be a meal for me. Sometimes supper is popcorn. Not the kids--I make sure they have real meals. Some of my favorite sandwiches are mustard and/or mayo, mustard and potato chips, peanut butter and Cheez-its or corn chips, mashed potatoes with cayenne pepper (love that cayenne), onions fried with garlic with mustard, cold dumplings (yes--a bread sandwich), a hamburger with everything but the meat, brown sugar and butter. I even steal the pepperoni from my husband's pizza for a sandwich. This could go on forever because as awful as it sounds 2 pieces of bread and just about anything makes a meal to me, but hey, I'm not picky and that lessens the chance of starving!
  15. We only have about 3 inches snow, but we do have plenty of ice. Our area has been pretty much paralyzed since Friday morning. The state is not really equipped for this to start with and then they ran out of salt. We managed to get out yesterday, but by the time we got home everything was turning to ice...again. Tried to go to work this morning, saw a few cars going about 5 mph with their flashers on because the road was a nice shiny sheet of ice and chickened out. Couldn't get that car that slid off the road and into the lake about a half mile from our house out of my mind. Oh, and it's still snowing. Got a nice little layer over the ice. Maybe tomorrow...
  16. Happy Birthday, Shelly! Have a wonderful trip and be safe!
  17. I've always been blessed with excellent health aside from the occasional sinus headache and congestion. I've had the flu once in my life when I was 30 and it only lasted 2 days. I do seem to be susceptible to stomach viruses so I avoid people who have one if I can. The sinus issue seems to go with the A type weaknesses. I'm wondering now if my good fortune with health has anything to do with the fact that I've always preferred the recommended diet and exercise without realizing why. I'm really going to do this. I'm excited about it, actually. The only drawback I can see is that I'm specifically supposed to be in bed no later than 11 pm and get 8 hours of sleep. I'm a true night owl and usually get 5-6 hours of sleep--sometimes more like 4. I like staying up late, but also getting up early. I'm usually up by 6:30 or so. I function fine and rarely need a nap, but I'm going to try the 8 hours and see what happens. Looking at the clock I see I'll have to start tomorrow night!
  18. Thanks so much! I'm already rereading the book (I've had it since 1998). I shouldn't have any trouble getting back into it because it's everything I like anyway. One more question though, if you don't mind. Soy. It's highly recommended for A types, but lately I've been hearing that soy might not be such a good thing after all. If I'm not mistaken, I believe I heard it from Mercola. Is this true? Ok one more --I take garlic, oregano, D3, and turmeric almost every day. Anything negative with this? Should I add anything? I'll be going back on Hawthorn per D'Adamo. Thanks!
  19. Have you heard of or read "Eat Right for Your Type"? I've had the book for a few years and followed the advice for a while and did seem to notice a difference, but I drifted away from it. It's about the proper diet and exercise for each blood type. What sparked my interest was that I'm A+ and was already pretty much living the recommendations. For A types a vegetarian diet and exercise such as yoga or tai chi is recommended. I've always eaten very little meat and have been doing yoga for years. I don't digest animal protein very well except for fish. I listened in on a chat the other night about this subject and did a little more research. I was amazed that the personality profile for my type was me to a tee. The type O fits my husband. Do you think there's anything to this or is it just coincidence? Have you looked into or noticed anything like this with your patients?
