The tropics seem to be winding down. Knock on wood. Other than Nadine wandering around. It's hard to believe she's still out there. It's been almost 3 weeks.

Until I can get up a fresh entry, this will have to do. I've a couple of ideas but I'll have to find the enery and time to do a little research and write something up.

Hi, Sandi!

This is one Halloween that we won't forget for a long time. Things are fine here and I'm sure there'll be little trick-or-treaters out and about this evening. It's going to be a bit chilly, though.

We won't see any. I haven't bought candy or turned on the porch light in over 10 years. In the five years prior to that, I bought candy and didn't have a single visitor.

I knew better than to buy much and I did buy the good stuff but, Lord knows, I didn't need it. I'd bring some of it to work so that I didn't just snarf it all down myself.

Sheesh, folks... talk about the mother of all storms...

The low pressure beat out the Long Island Express of 1938. We have floods, fire, blizzards, hurricane winds and surge. I wouldn't doubt that there were some tornados in there, somewhere. If a a haboob could have formed, I'm sure it would have.

Millions are without power.

I did find out this morning that my coworker's folks in NJ came through OK. He finally got ahold of them around 8:30 this morning. No power, of course. They had some minor basement flooding during/after Irene last year and he says his mom told him she was kind of afraid to look in the basement. Trees down all over the place and I'm sure there's damage to neighboring houses but they came through pretty much unscathed. So far.

As we all know, so many of a storm's injuries occur during the aftermath.

Hi, Karen, thanks for thinking of me. It was no biggie. Just a wet, chilly, grey day.


Well, dang, Ylee! Guess me and hubby ought to move up your way. I don't know about other local hospitals but we don't get free services for employees at mine. We get a discount on the facility bill but not the doctor bill.

Numberwise, I'll have to check that out before my appt. I'd never heard of Prio glasses before. I don't see well driving at night but I've always been that way, so I don't think it's just my vision. I find oncoming headlights blinding, even if I avert my eyes. I suppose some of it is that I'm not very experienced at driving at night. Once I'm home after work, that's pretty much it.

What I hate are those blasted halogen headlights. I know they're probably great for the one driving a vehicle with them but they blind everyone else on the road. I'm surprised they're legal.

Hi, Bug. I work on the computer several hours a day, and then I play on the computer a few more hours each day!

A few years ago I started having vision problems. Especially at night, I had blurred and double vision, and I couldn't focus. Driving at night was out of the question, and I started having headaches and sore eyes. I couldn't read a book in the evening.

My ophthalmologist suggested Prio glasses for computer use, and I'm thrilled with them! I leave them on my desk for computer use, and then I switch to my bifocals for everything else. Yes, I change glasses several times a day, but it's well worth it for the improved vision and lack of headaches, blurred vision, and discomfort.

I hope you find the right (and affordable!) solution for you.

Bug, you mean your glasses aren't free? Up here hospital workers get free everything! Bunch of tightwads, if you ask me! :(

If you figure a way to fry work computer at work, let me know, and I'll dispatch the Glitchamatic with extreme prejudice! :)

Take care!

Well, I came here to see how you faired with Sandy, and it sounds like you did OK. Glad to read that. I have a parent volunteer that traveled to Virginia/DC area over a week ago. She was scheduled to return home on Tuesday, but now she's returning on Friday. She's staying with family, so no big deal for her, but I miss her help at work!!!

A real late check in today.

Thanks to everyone for stopping by. Ylee, Shore, Sandi, Finn, Caro and everyone earlier in the week.

I've had my computer on since early this morning but laundry, fixing dinner and whatnot all seemed to keep me from sitting down to say anything.

It got a bit gusty Friday night but no rain until yesterday. And that was barely .10 of an inch, all told. It was damp, chilly and breezy but no real hard wind.

I'm sure we got lots more beach erosion. The local surfers were happy, though.

I washed two loads of clothes yesterday afternoon and hungs things inside but waited until today to do the majority of it. There was a nice breeze but the sun didn't come out for good until earlier this afternoon.

As you all know, I've been having some issues with WU from my work computer. I'm still getting that 'running script' message and WU takes forever to load, when updating, moving from blog to blog, etc. I talked briefly with our IT guy and he wasn't aware of any network issues. He told me a couple of tricks to try but they didn't do any good. He said it was probably my computer. So far, WU is the only website I'm having issues with. If the entire thing would crash, they'd give me a new one. They've already had to repair this one about a year ago. Got the 'blue screen of death' and they had to wipe the hard drive and reload it all.

Wu is fine at home. But my eyes are giving me fits.

But I've finally realized that I have to get my eyes checked. I've been having an increasing number of headaches and eyestrain on the computer at work. Working on the computer is all we do. I'm also having issues reading. At least, at home, I can put books down or not get on the computer, when it gets to be too much. I've called and gotten an appt with our Opthalmology Dept but the earliest opening on the main campus isn't until Nov 13th. I could have gotten something sooner over at the Mt. Pleasant office but that takes too much time..

I probably need new prescriptions. The last couple of times I'd gotten my vision checked, it hadn't changed enough to do new specs. I'll need two pair. One for regular pair for everyday use and then a pair for working on the computer. I've had two sets like that for a while, now.

Now, to figure out which bank to rob to pay for them. Single lenses aren't that expensive but once you move into bifocals? And I have to get two pair? Hopefully, both sets of frames are in good enough shape to reuse' that'll save a bit.

I'll try to touch base again tomorrow from work.

I know when your weather is going to be bad because our weather forecasters mention the storms on our weather broadcast. This morning there was a thirty second extension to our ninety second weather, so they could tell us all about Sandy!!

Take it easy, although I feel those further north will get it much worse than you and Caro :-)

not even a drizzle in Columbia today - and hardly a breeze either. Now that I'm home, it does look like a good bit of rain here today. I think this is our timeframe of wind gusts.

Just a quick check-in from the road. I just saw TWC - finally! It looks like rain and coastal erosion for you. I can't quite get a fix on what's going on. Anyhow, I hope all's well and I hope you don't have much to cope with. One of my cousins here in KC recently moved back from DC. He and his wife are happy about that.

I'll check with you tomorrow evening. Heavy socializing tonight, then off early in the a.m. for Topeka. Having a good time, but trying not to think about my poor abandoned kitty. ;)

Hi, Caro.

Wouldn't ya know it? Just when you have an outdoor event planned.

I think ya'll will be OK. The forecast in Columbia for tomorrow is about 20% chance of rain. I think most of the effects will be along the coast.

Who knows what Sandy will do overnight? She may track further off shore from us than they expect.

So, we have watches and warnings today as Sandy passes by. I've not expecting much, but seeing the alerts does remind me this is a serious storm, and that the fat lady hasn't sung yet for the end of hurricane season.

My concern is Saturday morning - and daughter (and high school cross country team) is scheduled to run race (for lower state tournament) in Columbia. We have to be there early... and well, it IS an outdoor event!

Hi, Sandi!

No, I'm not too worried about your namesake. We might get some breezes but it's going to be mostly surfer's delight. Folks in the water will need to watch for rip currents. We'll get some erosion. Again.

New Yorkers and folks up in the Northeast are the ones that need to really keep a weather eye out and get ready.

Hi Bug,

Sitting here drinking coffee, waiting for C to get up. He is having a lie in today as he is heading north to see his mum. Visiting times are 2-4 this afternoon, so he doesn't need to set off until about 10 am.
He has to come back to go to work tomorrow, then he is planning to head north for the weekend to visit her on Saturday, then stay up to go for a drink (or three) with his brother and a couple of friends on Saturday night, before heading back Sunday. I think he needs a break! He has had a difficult few weeks, a new job, looking after me and worrying about his mum!

I hope my namesake doesn't come your way.... She seems a nasty storm!

Hope work behaves today :-)

LOL, Ylee! And it will also cause some issues here at work!

I try to avoid onions and garlic at the office. Which nixes the pesto and artesian bread I have at the house. It's what my taste buds really wantedd but I had to settle for some Progresso Steak and Veggie soup. Not bad but not what I wanted.

Hi, Janet. I sometimes think the same thing. Makes you wonder what things are like where THEY are.

Wab, got my eye on it. Folks don't think you can get bad storms in Oct. I beg to differ: Hurricane Hazel, a deadly Cat 4.

I was only a few months old, so I have no recollection of Hazel. Thank heavens.

I read in our paper that New Bern was named a 2012 North Carolina Outstanding Traffic Safe Community by AAA Carolinas Foundation for Traffic Safety. They must have driven on different streets than the ones I have to drive. All I see are crazy drivers. This time of year they are those nutty tourists! Sure makes one wonder how did they get from point A to point B.

Sorry you are not fully up to par.

Hi, ho, everyone.

I managed to send out an email to my aunt this weekend but that's all the online business I got to.

I'm feeling better but I'm plagued right now with really dry eyes when on the computer or reading. I think part of it is that my prescription may need changing. I've just got to get off my butt and call for an appt.

Lovely video, Shore. I'm sure I'll have to crank it up for Dad when I go up next week. I've told him to click on the arrow to start the video but he never remembers.

Sandi, I have not even spoken to my cousin in a good three weeks. I get her machine or a busy signal. I don't constantly leave messages on her machine, either. That gets a bit old. "Hi, it's me again."

How did your Saturday go? Did you manage to get to see your cousin? She seems to have such a hectic social calendar since she moved!

How are the snuffles? Are they getting better?
I know you are heading to your dad's at then end of the month so want to be well by then.

Have a happy Sunday.... I am "trying" to behave! lol

I just laughed at your scrooginess re: the tourists. A gal I know up in Wisconsin has a blog that's titled "Living Without Tourists". She really doesn't like them! LOL

I dropped this over at your dad's just now and thought you'd enjoy it too. A wildlife photographer name of Phil Lanoue roams around here and there - a lot of Florida and South Carolina, plus other places - and does some stunning work. This is a sunset at Murrell's Inlet, up the coast from you.

Hi, ho, everyone.

Condé Nast Traveler's latest Readers Choice List has named Charleston, SC THE top tourist city, not only in the U.S. but the WORLD!

Oh, joy.

I mean, that's nice and all but it's not like we're not already rife with visitors from Off. (No offence, folks.) Not to mention parking woes downtown and the proliferation of national chains vs locally owned stores and shops.

I'm not even going to think about the folks that will opt to move here because of the rating. Or just buy second homes and not even try to be a part of the community.

75% of the beautiful homes below Broad St downtown are no longer owned by local families. They're owned by rich folks from Off, who only use them a time or two a year.

I was trying to link one of the news sources but every link I tried locked up my internet.

boy, I'm being Scroogie today, ain't I?

Oh, dear - so sorry to hear about the "whatever". We used to call it the creeping crud. Nothing specific enough for a name, but of course that usually meant it wasn't quite specific enough for a cure, either!

I had to laugh at the Zombie chatter. I turned on the radio last night for no good reason and got some program called Ground Zero. It's George Noory, only not so smart. They were breathlessly discussing how the fungal meningitis cases from those contaminated steroid shots actually are the result of a government program to test Zombie techniques gone awry.

Apparently the stuff was supposed to run up the spinal column to the brain and - well, I don't know quite what. But the guv'mt's doin' it, doncha know. ;)

I have something else for you, but I'll leave this while I go fetch it, just in case you pop in and out.

Here's what I first left on Pros' blog.



And here's the answer to the obvious question!

I'm with Prose on the zombie type stuff. I do watch 'Wheel on wheels' but not crazy about that one either simply because of the brutility of it. I'm better with the ones that leave that sort of stuff to the imagination. Not everything has to be visual.

Glad you are feeling a bit better. I do not get the flu shots either. I had to get one on Drs orders while going through my chemo & radiation several years ago.

Oh, and Pros?

After watching that Walking Dead marathon and when I'm watching the regular season, I do get a little hair rising on the neck feeling, if I slip outside to put something in the trash or recycling bins after dark. I kind of halfway expect to turn around and AUGH! ZOMBIE! HELP! HELP! Just like on the show. The little buggers slip up on you out of nowhere! LOL

No, this show is not for the faint of heart or the weak of stomach, that's for sure. It is VERY graphic and it is very scary.

I don't have nightmares after watching it but I will admit to some rather strange dreams.

Sandi, it's a wonder you didn't come home with a cold. Hospitals are germy places, despite all the hygienic procedures in place.

I got my flu jab last month, as soon as they announced the first 'tent event.' that was about 4 weeks ago. If I was going to get a mild reaction, I would have had it by now.

Pros, I'm feeling a bit better today but I'm still tired and listless feeling.

I started an 8 week course of meds two weeks ago and it's possible the 'cold' symptoms are side effects from it. It's clearly stated in the paperwork: flu like symptoms such as fever, tiredness, muscle aches, runny/stuffy nose, cough are some of the more common side effects.

With this being the start of cold season, it's kind of hard to tell what it is. I'll just have to wait and see. If it goes away shortly, it's a cold. if it hangs on for another 6 weeks, it's side effects. If it gets bad, I'll get checked out but for right now, I'm just waiting and watching.

Good morning. Feeling any better? I hope so.

You are watching zombies? I have never been into this genre of movies/tv programs/etc. To be honest, they scare me!

Having just finished a book that I liked, I am looking forward to a sequel. In the meantime I am going back to reading a historical novel by Gortner, this time it is about the Tudors, specifically Elizabeth and her fictitious spy.

Hopefully you are on the mend.

Hello
Do I see you have another cold! Hope you are not feeling too bad.
Funnily enough, whilst I was in hospital several of the nurses were sneezing and feeling unwell on Thursday, but they had all had their flu jabs on Sunday. I have never had one, but do know all medical personnel have to have one, but it seems to give them flu!

Glad you enjoyed the journal.

Good hubby has his car back.... Hope he looks after it!

A quick hello. I did mean to get on here yesterday but I was just out of it. All I felt like doing was staring at the TV. Not that there was much of anything on that Hubby would watch with me. It's football season. Oh. Yay.

I did get a pot of soup on yesterday. It's a good thing I went to the store Saturday. I sure as heck didn't feel like it yesterday.


I caught the bits and pieces of the Walking Dead marathon Sat and yesterday and watched first episode of the new season last night. I was poised and waiting for the end at 10:00, though, so I could double check the locks, hit the TV and the lights and go to bed.

The cliffhanger part at the end gave me a chuckle. I thought the barricaded inmates were zombies at first until one of them uttered, "Oh, $hit". LOL... zombies can't talk. It'll be interesting to hear their story. Everyone else inside had 'turned.'

Sounds like you are sneezy, coughy again. you'll have to get one of those face mask to wear.
I got my laundry hung & dryed today aso. It has been a beautiful day. It seems to be warming up just a tad more again. We had a few mid-upper 40's morning. I'm not looking forward to winter!
I sometimes get that 'running script' thingy on both my computers. I just x it & keep on doing what I'm doing. It might show up a couple of days then not for several months. I think the glich is on their end.
I'm off- gonna try to watch The third Man on TMC

Hi, Ylee... I should be good to go unless Hubby gets this one from me and then passes it back. Or picks up a fresh one out on his delivery route. He refuses to carry hand sanitizer.

I'm not terribly congested. The throat has eased off, as has the cough.

Just keeping the fingers crossed for now.

Hi, ho, sneeze, cough.....

Excuse me.

Evidently, that touch of cold I had while Hubby was sick wasn't enough to satisfy my karma. I've picked up another one and this one is making me feel worse.

At least I got my prescription nose spray switched this week to one that works better at keeping the nasal passages dry and clear.

Still, I hit the bed last night about 9:30 and slept like the dead. No fever, so came on in to work. I'm droopy feeling today but OK, I guess. I'm alive.

I'm going up to see Dad Nov 1st, so I've got almost 3 weeks to get over it. I can't go up, if I'm sick. Can't take the risk of spreading it to him.

Hubby got his car back yesterday. He seemed happy with the result.

Hi, Bug! Happy - uh - what day is this? Thursday, I guess. One day's pretty much like the other down here - but way too hot and humid. It's miserable, sweat-dripping weather. Blech.

I was getting that script thingie last week. It went away by itself. I haven't a clue what might have been causing it - my way of coping was just to click the little x to make it go away and sigh heavily. ;)

Yesterday, out of nowhere, I suddenly realized it's time to renew my drivers' license. Lo and behold, I went in to the website to check the DPS office hours and the cost, and discovered I could do it online! Ten minutes later, all done. It's good for two years, too. Life is good.

I was a little concerned about the vision test. My eyes suddenly aren't as good as they've been - rather, my left eye has changed, and it seems significantly. I've got an appointment for next Monday. My hope is that it's either my cataract getting a little worse, or perhaps even some vitreous detachment getting ready to happen. I've had that before, and it resolves on its own. It's the strangest thing - it's almost as though my vision is fine "behind" a veil. That's what makes me think cataract. But, I can drive and work - and compute - just fine, so I'll see what he has to say on Monday.

Have a good afternoon - tell that computer to behave!

Sounds like something on your work computer some IT guy slipped in. This old junker does weird things all the time! One of the programs running in the background uses 50% of the CPU! Why? Not even graphics programs will use that much constantly!

Maybe it will straighten itself out!

Hi, Ogal, Shore, Ylee, Pros, Janet, Wab.

WU is still dragging here at work, with that stupid, "This page is running script. Do you want to run script or not. Running script will cause your computer to become unresponsive." I click on the thing to tell it NOT to run script but I get it every time I come back here. New WU and Classic. Only here at work and only on WU. Other websites are fine. I don't get that warning at home.


Garbage, garbage, garbage.....

Bug I have been checking on Sandi too. I hope she is in La, La Land with that magnificent drip. You just don't to use it too often. I hope Chris made it home from his mom's with no problems.

We leave for Jackson Hole Wym tomorrow morning early but I am taking my IPad so I will continue to check on Sandi.

Hope all is well at your house. Give Gus a kitty kiss from my kitty girls.
