Good luck with the MRI. Several years ago, I had a headache for months, and NOTHING helped. They did a CT scan initially, and didn't find anything. So they did a MRI with contrast-again nothing. They put me on a very high dose of steroids. We went to WDW the next day, (in Sept.) The steroids gave me a major case of hot flashes. I would go in the condo and turn the A/C on arctic cold. I would kick the covers off at night and be sweating, and Greg would be shiverring under the covers But I do not have migraine headaches, so I don't know if steroids would work for you, but my headache began to feel better by the third day. Good luck. .....Vicki

They are not allowed to 'work' as it is an unpaid leave. Can't check their e-mail or their voice-mail...no contact with work. Since I'm taking a 'furlough' day tomorrow, I had to be sure to not work any overtime this week either.

Don't suppose you want to hear that it will be in the 70's for the next week. I've got a four day weekend and will be doing some Starbucks patio sitting

"He is without doubt strictly a Hoorah Henry, and he is generally figured as nothing but a lob as far as ever doing anything useful in this world is concerned."



Hmmm, you learn something new every day.

I've definitely met a few HH's in my time...

I discovered recently that the phrase John Doe (which I've always assumed was exclusively a US term) probably originated in England! That really surprised me as it's something I think of as essentially American...

As you might have suspected, I find language and origins very interesting.

Off to work very soon.

It is a rather bracing -17F air temperature (not wind-chill, that's -33F) this morning.

-17F is -27C for our metric friends.

I wish it was in the 70's here. We'll be at 24 for the high today with a low tonight of 14, no telling where the wind chills will be.

-11 in Indianapolis.

Anyone got a photo they want added to post 2?

I was going to take the van to the mechanic for him to see what part we need to order to fix the antifreeze leak but he said his garage is full of vehicles that would not start in the cold, he does not want me driving if I don't have to go out in the cold and slippery conditions so I am staying in.

Tom pulled the mini-blinds to the top of the 12 foot windows and I am gathering passive solar heat as we are on the south side of the building.
