Thanks Maw, I told him so, tell Kibby good luck with getting her learner's permit

Back home after a couple days Driving my brother to the Hospital in Pittsburgh for a Cornea Transplant, This is his second transplant, he had his right eye done back in 1984. His doctor had let his sight go in his left eye until he could not get an accurate estimate of his vision, he Guestimated his vision from his left eye at 20/200 with contacts and glasses. The morning after the transplant The surgeon estimated his vision at 20/100 and was aiming for 20/20 when he could start wearing contacts in a couple months when the healing and stitches are all done/removed. It is Truly amazing what they are able to do these days.

The roads are no longer safe. Kibby can now drive. As long as there is someone with a real permit in the seat with her. Which means she could not drive today. We had Mom in the van. She no longer has a permit & must sit up front.

There is a flu thing going around.... It seems to pop up in different ways, it's really strange. some people get the usual stomach flu. some people get headaches and a fever, and some people get a cold. I had the cold version, and got it thursday, and am still getting over it. You seem to get it for 36 to 48 hours.... half of the people in all of my classes where out at least one day last week.
The only good part of it was that I got to take my science test at home, where I can talk it out to my self, and go take breaks whenever I want. It was WAY easier than sitting in the stuffy computer lab at school to do it.

What's happening with me? Well I finally got the birthday present I've been wanting for a long time now (although late). My hubby had promised to get it for me when we got our taxes back(and then I had to wait a little bit any way..ug). He got me my very own copy of Dragon NaturallySpeaking! In fact I'm using it right now to write this post It's fun! I'm really having a blast with it.

It's a little hard to get used to this especially with training the program to understand me, but with a little practice I'm sure I'll get it soon. :-) I think I talk too fast for it, LOL.

Anyway, I just wanted to share that, heh

Made some more progress writing synopses for Pern books; I've recently completed;

*The Masterharper of Pern
*Runner of Pern (Short)
*The Girl Who Heard Dragons (Short)
*The Renegades of Pern
*Dragonfire (Crossroads Game Book)

So, eighteen down, thirteen to go (and five of those shouldn't take too much longer)?

Kibby had been saying for a year she wanted to do a presntation for 4H this year. Which means she needed props, and had to speak longer than when she did a speach. I sugested she do a speach. She HAD to do a presentation on the joys of being owned by a cat. Once she started figureing out that do a presentation was more work she changed her mind. I called to see if she could do speach. Nope, registation had closed she had to do a presentation. She FINIALLY got her posters and other stuff with only an hour to spare. She did use the same words as with the speach. She just added a demonstation and some posters. She won a blue ribbon and will go on to district.

I finally have my new computer up & running. I actually got it back in January and have been putting off switching things around ever since. Well, today was the day. After several false starts and errors, I think I'm down to needing to import my Outlook Express 6 stuff into Windows Live Mail, and I haven't been able to figure out how to do it yet.

But anyway, AMD Phenom II X4 3.6 Ghz processor, 16 GB RAM, 1TB hard drive.

I added my NVidia 1GB memory video card, Netgear wireless N card, and my 320GB SATA, 300GB IDE, and 1TB external hard drives.

Rock 'n Roll!

I am babysitting my nephew 2 year old Seth. I don't think he feels good either. Poor little kid is walking around the house crying & he will not eat. We keep what is wrong, but he can't say what is hurting. I think it is his throat. He has been doing a lot of coughing also. He got a little bit better when he drank a little bit of water.

Try stirring some honey and lemon together in a cup and giving him a spoonfull now and then. The honey tastes good, soothes the throat and provides energy (melose).

Over the weekend I keep getting worse, so I went to ER today.
I told the Dr's on Friday that I thought I was going into Broncitis(SP). Intern wanted to give me antibotix. Over seeing Dr. said no it was a virus. Anyone want to take a guess what the ER Dr. said today. I HAVE ACCUTE BRONCITIS! After going through the whole weekend feeling like crap & getting worse I went to ER today. Mainly because I am very short of breath. If I had been taking something for Broncitis over the weekend I would not now need an inhaler, which I have never needed before.

The next time I go to Dr. if my regular over seeing Dr. is not there I am going to wait until he is there.

Rant done.

I should also mention the Dr. and hospital ER I go to is an hour and a half hours away. It takes about 40 dollars in gas round trip. So today we waisted at least 40 dollars plus cost of eating out. UGGGGG!!!!

Now rant realy done.

Sorry you've not been well Mawra. I've been suffering from a chest infection for most of the year (started before Xmas and still got a touch).

Well it looks like the ConJunkie might not make it to one this year.

I had hoped to get to Eastercon but annual leave restrictions at w**k have made it difficult to get to London/Heathrow and back to Leeds in the 4 days of the convention.

Dragoncon was a possibility but I have just sent off my deposit for a cruise to the Norwegian Fjords at the beginning of September.

Wow, no cons for KC, that's hard to believe! But the cruise sounds amazing, great alternative.

Wow, no cons for KC? Unbelievable

You'll like that cruise, I'm sure. It visits places I have been to last year (except for Bergen, which we skipped) and you're in for some nice stuff!

Can you imagine what a cruising con could be like?

Dragoncon on the QE2!

I think it'd be a great lot of fun, P'ter! There is a cruise for geeks, headlined by musician Jonathan Coulton, called JoCo Cruise Crazy. I followed some of the exploits via Wil Wheaton's twitter stream (and that of his wife, who is hilarious).

Cheryl, do you remember the conversation between Anne and Katherine Kurtz? (Geez, can't believe it is already 10 years ago we were at Dragonhold together) Katherine has given several 'workshops' aboard the QE and other cruise ships. That could easily be expanded to more than a 'mere' workshop :-) Jody Lynn Nye als has done this I think.
