I have found that Guinness does help deaden mouth pain - and can be a substitute "food" when you can't chew!

Nice to see you are back home and have found something to help with the aftereffects.

Waiting for my cup of fresh coffee to brew.

It was homeward bound one night on the deep
Swinging in my hammock I fell asleep
I dreamed a dream and I thought it true
Concerning Franklin and his gallant crew.

With one hundred seamen he sailed away
To the frozen ocean in the month of May
To seek a passage around the pole
Where we poor seamen do sometimes go.

Through cruel hardships they mainly strove
Their ship on mountains of ice was drove
Only the Eskimo with his skin canoe
Was the only one that ever came through.

In Baffin's Bay where the whale fish blow
The fate of Franklin no man may know
The fate of Franklin no tongue can tell
Lord Franklin along with his sailors do dwell.

And now my burden it gives me pain,
For my long lost Franklin I'd cross the main
Ten thousand pounds I would freely give
To say on earth that my Franklin do live.

( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysFKjWG_W54 )


I must have worn out three copies of this Pentangle album!
Good morning, all. Saturday morning without cartoons. I have come far...
Big mug of East India Company's "Royal Breakfast" tea to start the day, and a bowl of rice, crab legs, and miso soup with pumpkin and onions to fuel it. Looks as if it's going to be a very nice day!

I don't remember hearing you predict a less than "very nice" day, even when you have to see the dentist

Predicting you are going, rather deciding you are going to have a great day is a big part of actually having one.

I think the best that can be said of tooth extractions is that they went and got over with. Less bad, perhaps, but not 'well'. I think 'well' implies that it was a 'good experience'... That's not possible.

But I'm glad you're over with it, pooh, and have found a good source of interim nourishment

Ah, this. The problem is I can never recall this method on those gloomy days when everything is spiteful. Must have sth to do with being born a pessimistic

Any day that I wake up and no one is shooting at me is a very nice day. It's all perspective.

There is NOTHING so important (to me, anyway.) as a positive mental attitude. I believe we can control our existence, and if 'we' don't control it, someone or something else will, and not always in a way that we want. I prefer optimism to pessimism, and in fact have been soundly chided for it by some. I admit it... I may carry optimism a bit too far. But I believe even yesterday can get better!

Every morning I sit quietly, meditating for 20 minutes and 'visualize' just what I want out of life. I 'see' it in my mind's eye. I do the same in the late afternoon. Then I get off my ass and make it happen.

If there are any doubts about the effect of a P.M.A., just look around. The people with a positive attitude always seem to get just what they want out of life. The people with a negative attitude are always complaining that they don't.

"Every day, in every way, it gets better, better, and better." Émile Coué 1857-1926

I think it's good to have ups and downs in life too, so bad days are interesting in some ways.

I think it's just semantics. By saying I hope it goes well (I said something similar in another thread), pdurrant and I are implying that we hope it goes as well as it possibly can, which means without any more pain or discomfort than necessary. It's common parlance in the UK. I don't expect it to be a pleasant experience by saying that.

Rooibos in my cup. Going to need lots of warm drinks today.

There is a Chinese 'curse' that says; 'May you live in quiet times.'

There are going to be days that aren't as good as you'd like, no matter what you do. The trick is to forget about them as soon as they happen, and spend your time experiencing and living 'now,' while envisioning the future, KNOWING that it will be great! Because it will be!

For example, I can see a lovely glass of rum in my future. Not a big glass... just enough for flavor. Perhaps I'll go for a calorie blast and make a cup of hot chocolate and pour the rum into that! It's an old Ski Lodge drink we would have around the fireplace at the end of a good day skiing!

Black coffee. The movers are coming today to move the last of my furniture out of my place and into a storage unit. I'm going to remain here in Mom's house for a bit, until I decide where I want to live.

I've taken this opportunity to get rid of so much stuff. It's been very liberating. I'm keeping the bare minimum, plus a few things that mean a lot to me, like the old oak table and mismatched chairs that my sister lovingly refinished for me 30 years or so ago. I love that table. A couple of very early sewing machine treadles. My loom and spinning wheel. Bed, washer and dryer, and 2 rocking chairs. I'm set.
