All Knowing Superchicken

All Knowing Superchicken (4/19)



  1. Both my girls went to uni from home .....so all the mess just cluttered up the house and books and note books were everywhere, and if i was doing any studying it was unbearable. When they got married and left home it was all left with me , it took years for them to agree i could get rid of things. I even came across library books which i took back, with loads of apologies....No fine was applied they were just grateful to get them back.( And i left very red faced as one was mine. ) Now my girls are 42 and 34 and come this September are both returning to uni to retrain, one in animal psychology ( equinine i think ) and the other as a theatre technician.I have visions of my GC going hungry and shoeless as money so precious has to go on books and paper, i can see i will not have any finances to call my own for the next 4 years. But All the mess and clutter this time will be in their own homes.
  2. My , we are becoming a group of Silent sufferers of age. I sit in my little world , sometimes thinking it is only me ! You are reassuring me that I am not alone with my aches and pains,with my cupboard full of meds and a drawer of suppliments i forget to take. Come winter and the codliver oil lives by the kettle, next to the vit D...no chondo as they are shell fish based and i am allergic.. I try to eat well , but i have so many days due to pain that i don't eat well at all if i'm honest , and i wonder why i don't lose much weight, but i know i am borderline with the thyroid .I do eat a vit D rich yogurt , i prefer that to pills, i take enough prescription meds and i think that is why the suppliments get forgotten. But also if i don't take the supps i have to make the effort to eat better. Such a vicious circle.
  3. I too haven't popped in here for a few weeks, so you can all imagine my surprise at the changes. I wasn't sure if my lap top was misbehaving, so came and went a couple of times, decided my eyes weren't playing games with me. When your so use to things, any change throws you off a bit, the colour is taking some getting used to. I haven't come across any problems outside of the adjusting to it all, I do prefer the old green and yellows though , they were easy on the eyes. If this is the colour for now can we have a smiley with sunglasses on as i find the blue bright, ( but i am light sensitive ) If nothing else ...you have kept us on our toes
  4. Its a girl , so excited for the Royals, the palace will be full of Pink..... Congratulations to the R Family.
  5. Reviewing this for spacechick. I am informed that the surge now has Cycling on its tracker. The revision is accessable when loading daily activity, OH didn't say how but the cycling activity id down loadable to your page. So you may have to look for it , but they have added it after requests.
  6. Glad to hear the deed is done and the offending appendix has been removed. Take it easy now and get some rest , enjoy Easter.
  7. Metronidazole is well known for making one feel wretched , dizzy , nausea and vomiting. Shouldn't be taken on an empty stomach .Which if feeling yukki to start with isn't always good. And if given IV, usually an anti emetic is given with it. So glad that this will be resolved for you, mine grumbled for months, I had them out at 4.35 am on the 6th june 1976. I have a very neat six inch scar on my brief line so not noticeable . Didn't do keyhole back then. I hope you don't get any worse and it is bearable until your surgery date . And afterwards enjoy the rest .
  8. Gosh he's not into chat is he.....he says it charges up really quickly , but he does his atm every other day, he's been home 10 days. You can change logged info by dashboard, clicking on the block ...say sleep. scan around the top right corner for the invisible edit logo, click and enter your relevant info or change exercise times , activity and then onto Log to keep the changes. It isn't difficult to use. The flex showed me just how bad my nights are. I showed my Rheumatologist my sleep record on my phone and he upped my drugs at night so I can get some decent rest.( break through pain arthritis) If nothing else while OH has been home I could see how much exercise he does and have had a good talking to him about doing more ! He said he wouldn't use the mp3 but I know he is ., caught him downloading, but he won't admit it. He won't say much but he really likes it.
  9. How does it react to short top up charges (I was thinking of doing mini charges when in the shower or bath) It actually says that's a thing you can do, I do it every other day. I cycle, and I know it doesn't like GPS for cycling! how easy is it to amend activities on the dashboard? (I have heard some people don't use the GPS and put that they are spinning as cycling exercise) Haven't tried any yet as I still getting used to it. I'll be able to give more info when I get back to work (next week) as that's where I use it most.
  10. when I lived in a village we had similar problems. I used to park my car opposite my house and my neighbour did the same , at least we had a bit of a view from Vans. Street parking laws I feel need to be reviewed by local councils periodically. When a councillor moved onto the green he somehow managed to get double yellow lines all around the green side of the road, and the house owners would parked outside their houses......limiting the green to single file traffic which eventually was made one way around the green.. I often wondered if it was done by the same councillor.
  11. I had a grumbling append for months years back . The doctor only admitted me when I began throwing up and pooping and when I belched it smelt bad....nasty appendix it was, I would go to A&E especially if you have rigors ( shivers) it means you have something that needs sorting out.
  12. OH has one. he loves it. ( I have his old flex.) He has waited for this so he can wear it as a watch and not wear two things on his wrist. He is really pleased with it but has only worn it to shower in...he won't risk getting it wet. I wear the flex to swim in and it is OK. OH is only home till Friday morning so if you want to ask anything ask soon so he can send a reply.
  13. My Grandaughter got into the one she wanted. They are a village area so have a choice of quite a few as seniors are all bussed out. So Conyers at Yarm it is .
  14. OH got home on Wednesday and ordered the fitbit surge , which I had promised he could have for his birthday. He is more than pleased with it . And his fitbit flex ? I have it now ,, with a new strap and it is more than OK for me , and I know I can go in the pool with his flex as he wears it to the gym , shower and pool when swimming. Can't beat recycling.
  15. I can answer this.......Yes they do Fart, we had a lovely hammy who ate far too much salad and had the runs poor thing , and we heard her fart for a couple of days when things were quiet and she was pooping all over her cage . Our fault really as we gave her a lettuce leaf and they don't really tolerate lettuce very well , we found it hilarious as well a feeling guilty for feeding it to her. So you can guess who had to keep washing her bum...yes me, but I brought loads of gloves home from work. We didn't feed her lettuce again. Our Vet even told me off.
