Off-Topic / Re: Did you ever lose a person around a holiday which made it hard to celebrate?

No close family members or friends, but some acquaintances did pass away around the holidays this past season.  An elderly man died on Christmas Eve.  He had only one sibling who was a sister and she also passed away on Christmas Eve a few years ago.  I thought was was so strange.  Another acquaintance passed away on New Year's Day.  Another friend I'd known since the 1960s when we were teenagers died about a week before Christmas.

I prepare a few days in advance of hurricanes but not the rest of the time. I really need to have an emergency kit ready all the time instead of just before hurricane strikes.

I was credited the first day or two but not since.  Wonder if they have a max.

I live in the Florida panhandle.  During the spring and fall I love to have the doors and windows open.  Too hot in the summer and I freeze in the winter.

I take medicine for blood pressure, heart and cholesterol.  Cholesterol isn't high but the medication is to protect my heart.

Raisin Bran or Special K.  I also like oatmeal hot or cold.

I grew up and live in northwest Florida on the coast but have never gone crabbing that I can remember - maybe as a child. My relatives had deep sea fishing charter boats and would catch crabs but all I did was enjoy eating them!

Emergen-C is good and is even found in the dollar store. If you have a stuffy head, put a towel over your head and hold it over a lavatory of really hot water. It's a cheap croup tent. It will definitely make your nose run and clean your sinuses out and it won't burn like neti pots or syringes do.

Off-Topic / Re: What brand and size bed do you sleep in?

I can't remember the brand, but it's a king mattress formulated for spine comfort. I've had it since the late 1990s and it's still like new. I don't do a lot of tossing and turning.

Reduce the salt in your diet. There is also a DASH diet for hypertension. Stress can make one's blood pressure go up; HOWEVER, hypertension is a serious disease and is called the silent killer. It should be taken very seriously and not merely attributed to stress!!! I'm a nurse and it runs in the females in my family although we are all thin and nonsmokers and aren't abnormally stressed.

Epcot Center at Walt Disney World, although it's been many, many years since I went there.

Sue. My father gave me my mother's name for a middle name, and I hate it.
