    Well I hope all the meds ( for the prostate and the BP) and the reduced fat intake helps a lot..( I'd forgotten about the cheese)

    yes the student consultants are good to get, no rushing..and they always go and check with a qualified consultant if they're not sure. My student consultant (John) let me have a whole hour last month while he checked and double checked everything, and after consulting with the Specialist across the hall... sent me for every test he could think of..lol...

    Today has been a funny one, it was a beautiful sunny morning so I walked to our local Tesco supermarket to buy some odds and ends, it's normally a 15 minute walk, but it took a good 30 minutes today. I got back intending to do some gardening but was on the verge of collapsing, so spent the rest of the day in bed half dozing.

    I found the cause after checking my BP which had fallen to 95/55 so I was Hypotensive, hence the weakness it was ok though I needed a rest and feeling weak I don't mind at all [​IMG]

    The funny thing was when I checked the walk from Jerusalem to Bethlehem the other day on Google maps, it was given as 2 hours, so Google must have tracked my walk to Tesco this morning, as it has increased the walk to Bethlehem to almost 3 hours when I just checked [​IMG]

    I hope you are having a good day..

    A photo I took this morning of the Tamarisk tree in the garden, it's beautiful at the moment.

    Good Morning everyone! :) I do hope all of you are doing well. :)

    IMG_0374.JPG
    @Yvonne Smith I am finally getting to see the JA flowers in full bloom. :) They are the pretty and bright yellow I like so much and I can't wait until more of them are in full bloom. The plants are so tall that we will be moving the tubers out of our flower bed when they finish blooming and we will plant them in a more appropriate place now that we know more about them.

    I have been keeping busy going to the Health Club at least an hour 3 days a week and it is making a difference in my health and muscle tone, etc. Now that I have it down to a regular routine and have been going long enough to see and feel the difference I am glad I finally got serious about going on a regular basis. With a new grand child coming by the end of next month and so many others to keep up with I really do need all the strength and endurance I can get now days. :) Although I just go to the Health Club 3 days a week, I also have been using my home exercise equipment or going swimming at my daughter's home two other days of the week. When it gets cold over here I can swim at a Health Club over here that has an indoor heated pool. Often my Honey comes swimming with me and that's really nice too.

    I'm still taking steps out of my comfort zone in other areas besides joining the Health Club...and it gets easier with each step I take. Life also gets busier with each step I take too. I play the Word game with my sister who is losing her speech, etc. It's really strange that she can hardly make a sentence out of her mouth now that any of us can understand, yet she can play the Word game with no difficulty at all and also type messages to us that we can understand too. We are all finding new ways to communicate with her...but it is very hard for her to not be able to speak the words out of her mouth that she wants to say to us. And we all are doing our best to help her realize she is still herself and we all love her just as much as we always did.

    Life is good right now and I realize how blessed I am to still be a part of it. I also realize how important it is to jump in and enjoy life as much as possible instead of watching TV all day or even playing on the Computer for a good part of the day. So I want all of you to know that even though you won't see me here all the time anymore...I think about all of you often and pray that God is blessing your lives just like He is blessing mine. And like today when I have the time I will drop in and say hi and let y'all know if there is anything new going on in my life too.

    Enjoy your weekend. I'll be helping my grandson celebrate his 2nd Birthday this weekend and watching the LSU game with my family. Family and good food weekend...my kind of life for sure. :)

    You're so sweet @Babs Hunt , and the matriarch of such a loving family.

    I'm pleased you're looking after your health and everything is looking more positive for you, because I know that along with your sister's bad health you've spoken about other family ailments too.. but you seem all such a strong family emotionally and I think your trust in God helps very much with that... be well.. and give your sister a hug from all of your friends on here, while we pray for her not to be in pain!!

    Feeling a lot better today though I feel awful when I first wake up, hopefully the side effects of this new drug will wear off in time.

    I am having some alone today, Cathy has gone with Mike to Wales and staying overnight in their camper van.

    On Sunday the girls and myself are going to Manchester for the day, I will spend some time with my BIL John, while the girls go to some event at a BBC studios nearby.

    Lisa is going to the dacha for the weekend to sort out the apple situation there, and bring some back to make apple charlotte.

    Have a good weekend everyone...

    Good morning everyone...

    It's a glorious sunny morning... I was just getting dressed and preparing to leave for the hospital and visit with my consultant when I got a call from his secretary to say he has had to be elsewhere today and my appointment has now been changed to next Monday instead!! Irritating at best given how long I've waited for the results..but with the NHS system this happens often..so nothing to do but wait it out again!!

    Gonna spend the day changing the beds lol.... I might go out later this afternoon and walk a mile or 2 around the lakes ..

    Have a super start to the week everyone.. and good luck @Chrissy Cross

    Good Morning, everyone!

    This week is our Senior Flu Shot week and continuing to prepare for my laser cataract surgery on Oct 3rd. Since my wife is, like myself, a Diabetic II, she has to see the colonoscopy doctor for a consultation this week, before she can get her colonoscopy.

    This coming weekend will most likely be the last weekend we can take our boat out. Due to rain, t-storms, heat and humidity, haven't taken it out at all this summer. Have started, and let it run to operating temp, but that's it. The tide is just right this coming weekend, but just don't know who the wind, heat and humidity will be. After this weekend, will have to take everything out of the boat, including batteries, for winter. Won't be able to take it out after my cataract surgery.

    Wife is continuing to pack some things for our move.

    We all met up for dinner in the early evening, at a pub just a few miles down the road across the border into Derbyshire.

    Here are a couple of photos, John looking very serious and the Gammon steak meal we all had except Cathy who had a vegetarian dish.

    Have a great week....and yes good wishes to @Chrissy Cross too

    Good morning everyone! 88 today but I see some 98's in the future. :(

    Today is the lunch with the ladies from Curves and we're going to Mimi's....love that place.

    It's in one of the nicest plazas in Fresno ..it I remember to I'll take a pic.

    It's kind of like an outside mall with tons of stores and restaurants and a huge movie theater but what makes it so pretty is all the palm trees and water fountains and flowers everywhere.

    As you can see it's not far, yet I've not been there in probably 8 years.

    Now I'm thinking once the weather cools that would be a nice place to walk...more interesting than my subdivision.

    We have quite a few similar Plaza/malls around too @Chrissy Cross , although not near us, about a 45 minute drive away is our nearest. I go probably once every few years. Takes all day to walk around

    Afternoon all.. it's a gloriously warm sunny day but we have really strong winds, the tail end of Hurricane Helena...

    I went for a walk a couple of days ago just around the immediate area where I live, and took some photos on my phone. Autumn is starting to come in now and trees are changing colour... here's some pics I took...

    Greetings to you all from a very warm St.Petersburg, I arrived last night but my suitcase got left behind in Amsterdam [​IMG]the connection was tight at 45 minutes and we became separated, but it was delivered by courier this morning, so all is well.

    I have been settling in and we went for a walk this afternoon, it was a clear sunny day in the mid 70s so very pleasant, it's good to be in my second home with Lisa.

    I wish you all a good day
