  1. I'm not sure but I can ask my former mother-n-law. She's his sister.
  2. My wife has lower back problems and her Dr recently prescribed aqua therapy which is basically working with a physical therapist in a warm inside swimming pool doing a series of stretches etc and then a certain amount of time with the water jets aimed directly at her lower back while sitting on an underwater stool at the end of the session. She has found relief that nothing else has been able to help with including meds and normal pt. You may ask your Dr about it. It's non-intrusive and a good warm bath is calming for just about anyone. With my osteoarthritis I was thinking about asking my Dr for the same treatment. :)
  3. Pam, my oldest two sons were originaly named Michael and Matthew but by the ages of 2 or 3 I renamed them to Seek and Destroy. The oldest would find it, and his younger brother would break it. It did not matter what it was, it was smashed. We live in the deep south and have friends who name thier kids Porkchop or T-Bone but it doesn't really matter what a parent names a child legally because of the "Granny Law". When a child is born and is given to the Granny to hold what ever name she gives it is legally what the child WILL be called, at least until the age of 21 if not forever. That's what we do down here in deep south Georgia USA. :)
  4. I used to have one that was done by the same person, same pictures and art of many people carrying thier cross on thier shoulder, but this one guy kept complaining about his cross being too heavy to carry so he stopped 2 or 3 times and carved some away from the bottom so it would be lighter. Everyone else did not carve thier cross and struggled carrying it the entire journey. The journey led them to a place that had a very deep crevasse in the Earth. All of the other people laid thier crosses down across the crevasse and it was just the right length to cross over safely making thier way to continue the journey towards Heavenly Father. You can imagine how the man that carved his cross way down making it a good bit shorter felt at this point.
  5. Dr T, does MS cause you any pain? If so, what part of your body seems to hurt the most?
  6. Ah man! And I just found my Zombie Attack Survival Kit that was stuck way back in the closet. Oh well, I'll keep it out for the Oct 21 "revised" date.
  7. Yes, it's the Mr Potato head tattoo. A dead give away every time. It could also be how a persons clothing is worn. In a way that does not expose the persons garments. In other words, a lady wearing really short daisy dukes IMO would probably not be an active member, but, I have been wrong in the past.
  8. We are all a mess Dr T. You are not alone. There is hope even when you feel there is none. Cling to HF and just go day by day. He is strongest when we are weakest. :)
  9. Slightly off topic but....long ago I came to a red light, slowed down looking both ways making sure all was clear and then rolled through the red light making a right turn. I quickly see blue lights so I pull over. The officer asked me why I ran the red light and I replied "I slowed down officer". He then asked me a question, "hypothetically" he said, "If I were to take my night stick out and begin beating you across your skull as hard as I can back and forth and you asked me to stop....would you want me to STOP....or just slow down?". I quickly replied that I totally understood him and after thanking him for my ticket I began looking at running red lights in a totally different way. Some mistakes we make are easily taken care of by saying we are sorry or by paying a fine. When it comes to some mistakes we make while driving, we pay with our lives and the lives of the other people in our vehicle and possibly other vehicles involved in the accident. When you run a 2 ton object made of metal, glass etc into something going fast there is no such thing as "he/she was a nice person, let's give them a break and make everything ok", nope. There is no mercy. It's the law. The law of physics.
  10. What if....when it's your time to leave this world Heavenly Father decides He's busy that day and thinks it is better for Him to wait a month or 12 before he allows you to enter, or not. Yeah, it's cool to leave Him hanging so you can slip a few more months of sinning in. No problem at all!!! :) Go for it. Like Jamie said, just hope you don't get hit by a trash truck before you get the chance to repent. Wouldn't that be awful.
  11. Pizza and lots of love. :) And a ride when they need it most. I've picked them up when they called many times stuck on the other side of town apprx 15 miles from thier appartment with a broken bike in the sweltering south Ga heat or when a bad storm comes up quick. You can get the missionary cell # from them at church after offering to help. For a while there I thought I was the only one here that helped them. I think everyone should support these young kids who are a million miles from home doing the most awesome job there is.
  12. Mahone, have you ever heard of something called "change management"? It's something that actually is a wonderful and effective thing IF...and that's a BIG if...it is used. In other words, lock down your system/s so tight that no one can do a release between date X and date X. It's the only way, otherwise you'll be, not just at work but be called at home 24/7/365 just like my wife. She has finally come to the conclusion, with my assistance, that she will not have a day off until she either quits, gets fired, retires or dies. Bottom line, because although they DO have change management not a single person who has access (to things they shouldn't) gives a (you know what) and feels that thier ONE LITTLE STUPID TABLE MUST BE CHANGED RIGHT NOW OR LIFE AS WE KNOW IT WILL CEASE IMMEDIATELY, of course not knowing OR caring that this one table change effects 2,700 other users, OH did I mention her job is on a system at a hospital that the Dr's are totally dependent on for reading charts??? Don't you want your family member laid up in our hospital the night, (weekly) some nitwit does a "un-annaouced OR approved/tested" release into prod?
  13. MOE, that third field you do for a living...are they hiring??? I'm a little person, 3 ft 6 inches tall. I am a palm reader. I also rob banks. On my last bank job the local newspaper read.."SMALL, MEDIUM...AT LARGE!!!!" Hey! I know it's old and also stupid but MOE asked for it!!!
