    Does he know about Clownfish, for example, that are born male change from male to female when a female is needed for their coral?

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    Dealing with elderly, ill parents is not fun. Both of my parents are in a great assisted living facility now, and my brother and I are now certain we made the correct decision. My dad (95) is unable to speak or do anything for himself anymore. My mother (92) is physically able, but her dementia is getting worse by the day (some days by the hour). She just cannot remember to push the call button when my dad needs to get out of bed. (What button?????) She gets him out. Today I found out the the staff gets Dad up and dressed in the morning, and then Mom changes his clothes and put him back to bed. He sleeps a lot, so being in bed isn't too bad, but she is not to be lifting him or helping him walk. Also, when she changes his clothes, she is dressing him in HER clothes. She keeps taking all the clothes from both of their dressers and moving them around the apartment, so the staff is never sure where to look for clothing. I have no idea---sometimes you just have to laugh.

    I've never found a tetanus shot to be any big deal. Just give me the shot, and I'll go on with my business. I certainly never had it interfere with anything I was doing. I don't remember even having much pain at all. Now, pain from the reason I had the tetanus shot, maybe, but even routine boosters have not caused me a second thought.

    Is this her "Laundry room breakdown"? They only have two children, for goodness sake. Imagine what three will do to her.
  5. I seem to remember that it was said that Michelle had once worked in a vet's office--maybe when she was in high school? Maybe she cleaned the cages and fed the animals. But she was the one who said that baby kittens like to in the pitcher, and I'm pretty sure she said she learned that at her job at the vet's office. In that episode, Boob kept finding litters of kittens in the walls of the property they were working on, and he kept bringing them home. I also remember the boys who were small at the time scooping out the litter box with their bare hands. This was when the howlers were in "school".
  6. Isn't this the picture of Erin and Whitney, but with Whitney cropped out?

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    "Happy Birthday" is now Public Domain. Until just a few years ago, it was still under copyright and could not be used on TV, but the copyright has run out now.
  8. At one period in my life I led bus tours in San Francisco, and I really enjoyed all the history. I don't seem to have any reason to get there now, and I do miss those days. I had a lot of fun showing out-of-towners the sights!
  9. I love Sears Fine Food, but haven't been there for several years. Glad to know it is still there.

    I'm pretty sure it worked with ATT when I still had a regular land line. I know it works with Ooma (VOIP). I was going to add my parent's ATT line before they moved. I know you can add more than one number to the account, so I don't think it is just for VOIP lines. I could be wrong, but I think this is what I remember.

    We've had ours for almost 2 years, and I am still very happy with the equipment and the service. It is serving as their phone service in the assisted living apartment, and it works very well. But it can be carried around and used anywhere since it works like a cell phone. It has a lot of different games of different types. Just no internet, which is fine with me since it keeps them from answering scams or being hacked. No one can get into their bank accounts, or anything like that. And no passwords to forget!

    I had over 10 in ONE DAY. Like you said, always a different number. Once it hit the local news on TV, it slowed down.

    My parents are elderly and in Assisted Living. I bought them a Grandpad. Check out their web site. It is the like a smaller iPad, but it is their cell phone and email, as well as having a lot of games. You can do video calls as well. I like it because they can only call or receive calls from people I approve. So I approved family and friends, but they cannot receive any scams or telemarketers. You can put a photo by each phone number as well, and all they have to do is touch the photo to call. My parents are pretty much gone memory-wise, but it would be really great for active seniors. Since it runs on a cell network, it can be used anywhere. And the customer service is the absolute BEST I have ever had anywhere. You get your own personal agent. She will call me if my parents forget to put it back on the charger. They have slot or poker tournaments on the Grandpad every month. They will also replace it if gets broken or goes missing. Check it out if you are taking care of any seniors. It is nice that I don't have to worry about scam calls, since my mother insists on speaking to anyone who calls---even the tape recordings.

    Try Nomorobo. It is an app, and it will work on cell or land line. Works pretty well. I bought a new Panasonic land line cordless phone that has a block button. I love that button!!! I've been getting repeated calls from "social security" telling me my SSN has been suspended. That scam was on the news last week. Everyone be careful out there!
