sherpa18: tigerose: While it is possible to ski down the stairs, I do not recommend it. It hurts....

Agreed. However - a few years ago, I was suffering from a serious (very painful) case of sciatica, and nothing my doctor recommended helped (yeah, right doc, I'm gonna do these weird exercises when I can barely stand up without screaming in pain) ... and then I fell (skied) down the basement stairs. Which produced colors on my ass that have never been seen before in a rainbow, but it actually cured the problem.

I had sciatica and could hardly stand up, but I do have my priorities and I had to get kitty litter. I ended up carrying two 40 boxes of litter into the house and it cured me, I felt fine and haven't had a problem since.

John Buck 41: Well, I told you folks that we were going car-shopping on Tuesday. Went to our bank. They wouldn't do a thing for us til we came back with a vehicle we had picked out. I told them I wasn't thrilled about spending all day kicking tires and then getting turned down for a loan. So we left and went to a local Toyota dealership. Cut to the chase---we ended up driving away with a 2013 Toyota Corolla w/0% financing. We got a modest break because I work for a Toyota supplier and also saved some $$ by choosing a 5 speed manual in lieu of an automatic transmission.

First NEW car I bought since 1988.

Very nice. You'll get better gas mileage with a manual plus less of a chance of some one stealing it cause most people nowadays can't drive a stick!

Our internet is suppose to activated on Saturday, but even if it is, we'll probably be too tired to hook up the computers, modem & router. I hope to be back on Fark this Saturday evening, but I cannot promise I will.

I've heard that with the advances in automatic tranny technology your 1st point might not apply, but your 2nd point definitely does!

I have heard of several cases just like that!  A Chiropractor friend of mine had a sweet little old lady patient who was still having sciatic pain after several treatments.  She was bending over to clean the bath tub, she kind of did a somersault into the tub and voila!  No more pain!

Excellent choice; one of the best cars out there.  I almost got one a few years back, but picked up a tC instead.  I didn't need four doors and love hatches.  Coming up on 110k and I've only had to replace the battery, wiper blades and tires.  The clutch and gearbox are fine, too.  It won't let you down.

Back to the important stuff!

Here's Birdie getting comfy:

And Vince in the sink:

This has become a minor problem.  Vince gets into the sink whenever I'm on the can and won't get out.  (No, I am not going to turn on the water.)  So I have to go to the kitchen to wash up.

Caturday farkers:
I bought ties for my cats off Etsy.  Neither one was happy about it, but this helped the  Fredericton SPCA, which is in Canada.  Due to some confusion about shipping times, I started a whole brouhaha with them because it took a long time to ship, but I was being an idiot and we got it all worked out, and they were more than understanding about it.  It just takes six weeks to get the ties if you're in the US.  I think they are made or assembled by hand.
Anyway, the most unhappy cat (the Dell Monitor came the same day):

img833.imageshack.us

And the "wouldn't wake up" cat:

img62.imageshack.us

In her defense, she's 15 years old.  She doesn't wake up for much.
I don't mean for this to be a plug for any SPCA, I just feel bad for initially leaving negative feedback for them on Etsy.  They were solid all the way and calmed me down after I didn't receive my order in two weeks.  I think the negative feedback review was removed because Espy has a "kiss and make up" offer, which I took.
Anyhoo, HAPPY CATURDAY!

Sciatica IS a whole lot of not-at-all fun...

Wasn't an accident but accupuncture that got rid of mine.  Hurt almost as much as a mosquito bite.
Five treatments and TA DA!
Pain free.

The chiro doing the procedure told me that it would probably take about that many treatments before I noticed anything...
and if I had no relief after 10 treatments we'd try something else.
I can recommend it, is what I'm on about.

Accident may be quicker (one session of fall-down-go-boom and you're cured!), but by the very nature of the process there's not a whole lot of control over what, where, when and/or any collateral damage occurring in the process.
Not only is success not guaranteed...you may end up dealing with the law of 'unexpected consequences'.


I should not try to practice dry humor at 5AM...

Good meowning everybuddy! I must tell you about my adventure last night!

Weird story sis time. I was making some treats to mail to a friend's brother who is stationed in Afghanistan. I had dug an old hot air popper out of Narnia (what we call the storage area that has the door inside my sister's closet) and got about half what I needed to cushion the cookies - and it died. It was a spectacular death, with smoke and smelliness. I yell and yank the plug out, my Mother overreacts and yells "WHAT HAPPENED?!?" which brought Gran, my Sis and my son all coming out to see if I fell out again. I tell her the hot air popper was obviously Buddhist because it self immolated rather than support any troops in a war effort. That's the second one that's died on me in just a few months.

To make a long story a bit shorter, I ended up going door to door in my neighborhood to try and borrow one, which led to me going through the woods to a teenage neighbor's friend's house to borrow one, they then just popped the popcorn for me while I had an awkward conversation with neighbor and his friend about whether friend's girlfriend was "cheating". I ended up standing in the Rite Aid, holding a garbage bag full of popcorn, wearing a pair of pajama bottoms with skulls all over them and my black and fuscia "cooking diva" apron while buying OTC medication for yeast infections, as that's what the young 'un got from his girlfriend and he was too embarrassed to buy it himself.

I wonder if the Rite Aid will give me a copy of the security footage, because that had to be a sight to see.

I hope everyone has a good day and we get lots of happy news and cute critter pics. Cretinbob, I love the little black kittens! I totally want to cuddle each and every one of them. D'awwww!

Some of you have interesting ways of healing sciatica, btw. That is painful, but mine went away all on its own, no flinging myself down stairs or pulling a Mary Lou Retton into a bathtub required.

Good morning folks, I'm on my way out to the farm, they are delivering my bathtub today. I worked out there late last night and before I left I went to the garage to feed the kitties. Oma Cassie and Flower were waiting for the gooshy food. Forrest was COMING BACK IN from the rafters! I don't know if she got out or was just sitting up on the top sill plate.

I may have inherited two kitties, I have seen them several times. A white one with reddish ears keeps hanging around the garage and a grey one with white feet is under the house.

My friends in Al shared a picture of their dog Sampson with their new baby goat Lazarus. Sampson was Fiona's best friend, she would get her toys and chew bones and give them to him to play with while he visited. This dog is a lab mix like Fiona but he topped 100LB before he was a year old. While Fiona has some pit bull in her, I think Sampson has some bull mastiff.  His is just a big baby.
