Can't win 'em all. With Coach K around, you have little to fear. Duke is always good.

Thanks Tim. But I do feel better now that Carolina is out too. My "bracket" was way off this year . . . .

To add to my aggravation migraine from earlier this evening (see Annoying thread), my hotmail.com account had spam email sent from it to my email address book! So I had to change my email and go to my other accounts and change them must in case. ARGH! I had to miss out my usual night time reading, but better safe then REALLY sorry!

Head hurts, not happy!

Sorry Susan (BB) you may have gotten one of the spam emails! :(

My dumb lawnmower broke ...AGAIN.

The damn thing is only 2 years old. Last year it was out of commission most of the year. I'm done. I am getting a push mower.

We got a push mower last summer for our tiny lawn. Works like a dream. However, I'm gradually getting rid of all the grass in the front and replacing with perennials. About 25% there. I would like to grow edibles, but it's too shady for most things.

I have a pretty good sized yard, but have always used a push mower - the Briggs and Stratton I bought eight years ago has been extremely reliable, I'd recommend if you're looking for a new mower. I also had good luck going to a local mower etc. repair shop and buying a small Toro secondhand, before I fet I could afford to buy new.

Funnily, in push mowers, I've found the NON self-propelled type to be far, far lighter weight, much more nimble, and even a little more fuel efficient. For what it's worth. :)

Today my right arm starting hurting a lot, and not like my usual fibromyalgia pain, and I've been on Vicodin and Valium all day and it still hurts. Ice pack wasn't helping, it actually amplified the pain! So I'm using a heating pad instead. If I'm still having too much pain my doctor says they're prescribe something stronger until my apt. on Monday.

Last night I learned that one of my best friends has a pre-diagnosis for the disease that killed my father.

SonjaMarie, so sorry you're feeling so bad. Chronic pain can be so debilitating. :(

DianeL, also sorry to hear about your friend. Did they catch it early enough to do anything about a cure or amelioration?
