He did. Nebulizer, Advair (not yet, too expensive, he's looking into a cheaper alternative), lots of liquids (not whiskey, whisky, vodka or any of that stuff), rest (I've have about 9 hours sleep in the last 48). He also wanted to give me a codeine cough medicine, but I already had some left over from the last time I had a bad cough.

My wife leaves for DC tomorrow between something o'clock and oh dark thirty. She, too, is coughing, but very much wants to make this trip to her high school's 150th anniversary (no, she was not in the first graduating class!). If she's not some better when she comes back on Monday she's going to the doctor.

We may not go back to Hawai'i, nice place though it is.

frogprince has been on a long roll of keeping track of the thread, and feeling appreciative of the folks here, without thinking of much to say. I've gotten back to what was our routine of morning walk and exercise at the town "community center" (primarily a fitness center) and coffee and gab afterward with regulars there, so avoiding becoming a complete hermit.
Flu has been going through town here like the black plague, but it hasn't got me yet; I've been lucky in that respect for some years now.

Keb, you got it in one. Hatches are the openings on the ship's deck, battening them down means to close them up tightly. Mostly so below decks doesn't fill up with water.

although I am an ignoramus about ships and boats,

"batten down the hatches."

And I always associate it with the acts of God known as
inclement weather.
My area has a blizzard forecast . . .

r1... thank you. Nuff said.

k... thank you. Nuff said. As for the men with shovels, that used to be a pastime in my youth. Get a box of beer and load the lads in my Bug with the studded 6.5s on the rear and shovel out and/or push peoples' stuck cars out of the snow. Great fun. Got a cop car unstuck one night. Buddy asked if we had been drinking. I said, "Yeah. See ya later." We jumped in my Bug and roared off. He put the lights and siren on and came after us. I did a 180 with the hand break and floored it. He tried to do a 180 in his big-ass Chevy and ended up in the snowbank. Stupid move. We didn't go back to help him. >;-)

Mysha speaks sooth in his 5 February post.
Some of us are living that particular experience --
watching someone else who can't do for themselves,
and knowing better
than to try to save them.

It can drive you mad if you don't know better,
and even then, it is a trial.

Well we had a good Samaritan. We were going to look after the grandchildren for 4 days while mummy and daddy flew to Berlin with 8 friends for a 50th Birthday celebration. The roads were blocked with drifts and we couldn't get to them and they couldn't get to us.

Then one of their friends came and picked us up in a 4 by 4 and avoiding the blocked roads they got us here in time for the parents to drive to London this evening. They fly out of London city airport in the morning ,fingers crossed.And Billy and I can have a 4 day holiday in a lovely cottage with the two little girls.

I don't remember weather like this in the UK before, Billy of course, New Jersey boy that he is, finds the country grinding to a standstill hilarious!!

Keep warm crew members over here, and lots of love to everyone

I know a priest, a Dominican-order friar, who was born and raised in Minnesota not far from the state line with North Dakota. You can imagine what the snow THERE is like.

When he was a young and able-bodied teen, and a storm hit, his father, a decent working-class man, would order his son to bundle up and grab the shovels. The two of them would get into the family auto, and they would carefully venture out onto streets and roads. They would look for drivers and cars that were stranded or stuck, and make it their mission to dig them out and push the cars out of whatever ditch and get them rolling again.

That was his father's idea of being neighborly. The mother was similarly neighbor-oriented. You can imagine what a good pastor this friar is -- the world could use a score more of him.

When I lived in bad snow country along the edges of the Great Lakes (one place had an average of 120 inches [305 cm] and all winters were above average) I often wished I had the power to chain those who shouldn't be out to the walls of their homes. AND do something to remind people who HAD to go out to turn on their headlights even if snow wasn't falling, stop speeding, clean off their cars and not just the windshield(screen), and mostly to act like rational, thinking human beings!

Morning all.
Snowed in down on the Essex coast, unbelievable snow drifts , roads closed, schools shut, people are complaining that their roads haven't been gritted . One of the wonderful girls who cared for my lovely mum sent me a video of her being dug out by 2 snow plough on the road to Harwich, she has been out since 6 am trying to get to elderly people living on their own in rural places. Amazing people have been out all night ploughing the country roads and the police and ambulance crews are doing a wonderful job, and others are moaning about lack of grit!!!Put on your boots, leave the car in the garage and pop next door or down the road to see if the elderly neighbours need a bit of shopping or a cup of tea and a chat!

I won't start saying when I was young .............
But hey folks it is WINTER ??and we don't often get proper weather, if you don't have to go out to feed the farm animals, work in a hospital,or do something essential, then light a log fire, read a book, cook a stew, listen to music. Stay warm and feel lucky .
Lots of love

After much personal debate, I've decided to finally come out publicly here as transgender. Those of you who know me on Facebook, please don't mention it publicly there, because J-boy's family doesn't know and I'd like them not to learn of it from Facebook.

Those people in my real life that I've told have mostly been extremely supportive (Mum just saying "It's about time, I've known since you were a toddler" was a huge relief). My co-workers at the market have all been fantastic, too. I realize not everyone on Mudcat will be supportive, based on the most recent thread about gender-neutral language, but whatever. It's a huge relief to finally be me publicly.

Well, "sink or swim" is when it's time for a life-line/raft/boat.

Someone in the water may need help. Helpers are coloured heroes in the press for jumping in after. But how much more courage does it require of the looker-on to admit being unable to help by himself and to go find other help?
