When I was seventeen, it was a very good year
It was a very good year for small town girls
And soft summer nights
We'd hide from the lights
On the village green
When I was seventeen
------------------------------->
But now the days are short, I'm in the autumn of my years
And I think of my life as vintage wine
From fine old kegs
From the brim to the dregs
It poured sweet and clear
It was a very good year

( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j13JwniUs2A )

I've just 'returned' from my 50th High School Reunion... Class of '64... Memories....It was a very good year.

Good morning, everyone. Back in the States, my classmates are winding down the reunion that's been going on all day. One of the members owns a children's daycamp, and volunteered to host an afternoon of play and an evening BBQ. About 60 people showed up, most who only knew each other from the internet Alumnae Facebook page, although we all knew each other's names. Our graduating class had 1,352 seniors (plus another 150+/- that didn't graduate...) so we really only knew those we sat next to in class... Several people brought laptops or iPads, and those of us too far away to make the trip 'joined' the party via Skype, with conference calls linking us all together. But it seems as if everyone got old... A nice trip down memory lane!

New Ceylon tea this Sunday morning, as we get ready to challenge the day. First challenge will be breakfast. No Food Lady on Sundays, but I think we are up to the task. Then perhaps a ride though the mountains before the Rainy Season makes the roads impassible. All in all, a good start on what looks to become a very nice day!

Charlie, good to hear the good news. Ventolin used to make me really wired, as, I suppose, would most bronchiodialtors. I always hated the feeling. I'm glad I was able to get free of them.

OK... on to breakfast!

Sore from standing in the sun all day yesterday. I don't understand how I can run a ten mile race - and yet standing around makes me sore?!? Anyways, gotta brag on my 10 year old...

The below target is from his first ever shooting competition. Before this competition he had never even seen the gun he used. They gave him four practice shots, and then these 10. The 2 in the 9 ring were his first shots, and I guess all he needed for final dialing in!



Took first place! Won a tent.

That is great shooting, not just good shooting! To group so tightly is something every shooter tries for but few achieve it. He done gooood.... He must have had a pretty good teacher! Congrats all around!

There's a bright, golden haze on the meadow
There's a bright, golden haze on the meadow.
The corn is as high as an elephant's eye
And it looks like it's climbing clear up to the sky.

Oh, what a beautiful Mornin'
Oh, what a beautiful day.
I've got a beautiful feelin'
Everything's goin' my way.

Good morning, everyone! Happy Monday! We get to start a whole new week. I guess we're pretty lucky about that. There are just too many who won't... Be it the 13 Israeli soldiers, 'Bret Maverick,' Elaine Stritch, Johnny Winter,... It's good to keep in mind the time we do have, and make it the best we can. 'Accentuate the positive' aren't just words in a song. They are guidelines for a good life. One positive in life is tea! Today it's good 'English Breakfast' tea from Taylors of Harrogate. Starting to run out of this, so I guess it's time to find a way to re-order. I'll do that right after breakfast!

It really did. I couldn't stand it, and that was one of my 'motivators' for removing the need for it. And a good thing I did, too, or else I never would have been able to scuba dive. Don't let anyone tell you that Asthma can't be cured...

Well, mine is closer to COPD at this point, though we haven't changed our diagnosis yet. But it's definitely on the horizon.

That being said, I could probably still get my doc to sign off on diving. But it's not likely to be a significant concern, since I don't see the budget going to those kinds of vacations any more. And I don't do cold water diving.

Diet coke.

COPD is usually progressive... Perhaps it's time to stop it before it gets to that point.

If there is still need even for the occasional bronchiodiolator, the danger of barotrauma exists. I wouldn't chance it. Breathing in isn't the problem. It's not being able to breath out when ascending that causes the problems.

Quote:

On this I am in full and hearty agreement. If the water temps require more than a shorty wetsuit, we don't dive it! When I see people suiting up for Arctic 'under-ice' dives, with two layers of longjohns under a heavy drysuit, I shake my head in wonder!

Sadly I think FPS games probably have more to do with his skills then my teaching.
