  1. My additions would be: Work gloves, in case you come across debris that needs moving A change of clothes, sturdy shoes and socks, good for lots of walking in harsh conditions Hat, both for sun protection and debris protection Insect repellent Extra personal hygiene items (extra tampons, depends etc.) Water purification system, in case you run out of water Food and water for your pets *A fire starter kit of some kind in case you are stranded in the wilderness and need warmth or a way to prepare food *Safety flares in case you need to signal for help. * I frequently travel between cities with a lot of rural area in between. If you plan on leaving this kit within the city limits, you may not need these items.
  2. Florida west coast pards, please check in as you can and let us know you're OK. We are able to help as needed.
  3. Thanks for the prayers. We made it and only lost power briefly. As soon as we are able to get out of our place, we'll go check on our neighbors as the back of our subdivision tends to flood. Prayers continuing for the folks on the west coast. They really need help.
  4. Would a small shovel and a long extension cord solve your problems??
  5. Uno uses a Resmed with a heated hose/humidifier and I have a Dreamstation without the heated hose but with a humidifier. He can use Hardpans's suggestion I can not. I have no information on settings.
  6. Do any of you CPAP / BiPAP users have a battery back-up for your machines, in case of power outages? If so, what do you have and how do you like it? I've been contemplating purchasing one for each Uno and myself but I'm not sure what type to get, how large etc. Any advice you can give would be helpful. Thank you kindly. CK
  7. Prayers up for those on the Florida west coast in the path of this monster. We've been getting drenched by the outer rain bands since last night. The eye is expected to pass over us on the east coast Thursday. Lots of calls for flooding and tornados here. Thanks for the ham links, Lin. I'll get Uno to bring his up and start listening.
  8. Great visitors, UB. We have a few flocks roaming around here as well.
  9. Agreed. It's still way too early to tell. We're preparing but watching closely.
  10. In this case, I believe the detail shop slipped up somehow and dropped something, like the buffer, while they were working on the top of the windshield/roof. If you look just above and to the right of the fracture, you will see some paint missing. It had to be a significant strike to do that. In my last conversation with the dealership, the service writer told me they will pay for the replacement windshield as soon as they get one in, as she swears I didn't bring it to them with the break. We'll see how this goes.
  11. I took my car in to the dealership for regular maintenance. All they had to do was rotate the tires and detail it. {I get two free details a year.} I went to pick it up and, after depositing my lunch box in the back seat, sat down and noticed a huge crack right in front of me. I hopped out and looked at the windshield and saw this. Needless to say, I never took the car off the dealership property. I drove the car around the building and right back into the service bay. The service writer said it wasn't there when I dropped the car off the day before. I would not have let something this bad go without replacing it. The service writer brought out the general manager, the service department manager and the detail manager. All were surprised it happened but no one would own it. She gave me back the keys to the loaner car and said she would be in touch. I called the dealership today to get a status and she said that all their windshields are on back order so I could keep the loaner car until they replace it, possibly as late as the end of next week. {Sigh} I really need a vacation......... To give you a perspective on the size of the damage, the impact area at the top of the picture is about the size of a half dollar. I'm standing on my toes leaning across the side of the hood to take the picture. That was as close as I could get.
  12. "But the kettle's on the boil and we're so easily drawn away.........." Thank you. The album
  13. This is how we keep Josie from sleeping on the bed. Apparently, her original owner allowed it. We do not.
  14. Uno also hangs out at a site called "Sailing Anarchy". Need I say more.................
  15. When I was going through chemo, that's all I would drink. It was about the only thing I could keep down, besides water. We had a store in Cali called Smart and Final. They usually had really good deals on it so I would stock up. Love the stuff.
  16. I was leaving Target yesterday when a storm gust blew up. The parking lot was full of empty carts. It was on the verge of raining and the cart attendants were no where to be found. The wind was blowing so strongly empty carts were moving across the parking lot at high speeds, careening into each other and coming very close to parked cars. One conscientious customer rounded up all the carts near him and his vehicle and took them to the nearest corral to keep them from damaging other customers vehicles.
  17. This is hysterical. Keep it up!!! You're giving me some ideas........not necessarily good ones..........my cube at work looks so empty............

  19. Looks lovely. Please excuse the ignorance. What is in the bowl to the left of the place mat? It looks scrumptious.
  20. Remnants from Kay in Baja. They need it so no complaints.
  21. One of these days, they'll hire some team mates for him. Until then, he's all they've got.
  22. We might be starting a little early here. I took these this afternoon. Me thinks it's gonna get a little loud tonight.
