Well, thank you, it might just be the thing. It has to come next to my usb-keyboard vacuumcleaner that I got for my birthday recently from my daughter.
I hope it doesn't get too hot, as I am very careful with my (Staffordshire, real bone china) silver jubilee mug of Queen Elisabeth....
Now I feel bad. I don't have any mugs with Dutch Royalty on them .

Sorry to hear it Prof. It's always horrible when the kids get ill, particularly as babies. Best wishes to Lucas.

Nothing in my cup either. Some water for now, perhaps, then a glass of wine will be calling...
ohh that looks cool. The USB warmer thing.

I know Lucas will mend quickly. His teachers mentioned that two kids were sent home on Friday due to diahrrea (sp), I am guessing that is where he picked this up. Hopefully he heals fast. He seems to have a good attitude but has been fussier then normal for him.

Tea, in a large, stoneware mug we got at Colonial Williamsburg.

Eavesdropping here. Good luck with Lucas' stomach. Kids bounce back fast.

I've got a Simpsons one (not USB - direct plug-in) and it is really great for keeping a coffee (or whatever) piping hot. It's a surprise every time I take a sip and realise it is still at the perfect temperature for full enjoyment.

Hi cromag - is this your first posting in the "cup" thread? Welcome.

Home with a fussy Lucas. He is tired but fighting a nap. He did move himself from a crawl to a sitting position for the first time. So that is good. Now to figure out how to get him to drink pedialyte....

Poor thing. I hope he feels better soon. My son wouldn't drink pedialyte and we tried the frozen sticks for him to suck on. We did get him to at least drink gatorade, although that was not the best, the Dr. said it was better than nothing.

Coffee in my cup and bottled water next to it.

No honey until he is one. He cannot deal with the bacteria found in honey like an adult can.

Ahhh. As I was writing it, I thought there was some stricture like that. But I don't have kids, so I wasn't sure. Well, making it into a popsicle sounds like a good idea!

The popsicles are great for kids. I decided to try a bottle of straight pedialite and he drank it all with no complaints. Color me surprised. He is working on a bottle of formula right now so his dinner is half pedialite, half formula. And he has been sleeping a ton. He napped for at least three hours total. normally we are lucky to get two, thirty minute naps.

Agreed! If I can - my "cure" for coming down with a cold is 20 hours of sleep - it usually works!

As I was walking a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
This land was made for you and me

I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

The sun comes shining as I was strolling
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
This land was made for you and me

( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSIy0wq_-8A )

Good morning, everyone! Happy Wednesday. (Is this a ridiculous was to spell a day's name?!? It really needs to be changed to wensday!) I have a steaming mug of East India Company's "Assam" tea on the table, a bowl of rice with Chinese Duck sausage mixed in, and a bowl of miso soup to go with it. Altogether, about 300 calories. I need to keep them down today (read 'today= next three weeks') to make up for yesterday...

This comes as a complete surprise for me. I figured that the water table was too high, as in Florida.

My wife's cure too. She get's a cold, she goes to sleep for a day or two, and wakes up healthy. She can't understand why when I get sick I don't go to bed.

Time for one more mug of tea, then it's off to walk!
