Re: How old is too old to start over at the gym

In Health & Fitness 1413849109.79

If you're in your 60's and haven't exercised in a while, a physical and a talk with your doctor would be good before you start. Are you generally fit and healthy? Do you have any health conditions or problems? Any mobility issues? I'm in my mid 60's and have arthritis. I find swimming and water exercise the safest and most pleasant exercise for me. For others it is walking; others use the elliptical, other machines, and/or lift weights. I am sure you can find some form(s) of exercise that will be do-able. Kudos for getting back into exercise. It does a body good! Continue Reading


Re: Do you like your Jim Shore pieces?

In For the Home Talk 1413847771.85

Some of the J.S pieces are attractive, but I'm always aware that they are mass-produced imports, not true hand-crafted art pieces. Those angels, Santas, welcome pineapples, and all the rest are churned out in quantity rather than individually made. Check the online descriptions, and you'll see that every piece is marked "made in China" or "imported". Most of them are made of resin that "resembles hardwood" (!) Of course, it's a matter of personal preference, but I'd much prefer to purchase a genuine, unique work of art imagined and made by a skilled craftsman, even if it costs more. Continue Reading

Re: WWYD? remove titanium plate & screws from collarbone or not?

In Health & Fitness 1413846928.61

It seems to me that this is a medical question, specific to your case......not something to decide on the basis of stories and opinions from people who may have had somewhat similar medical experiences. How the bone was broken, how it was repaired, how it has healed, your personal health status, and the probable pros and cons of removing the particular type of hardware you have need to be discussed with your surgeon and considered. What is involved in removing the hardware? Sounds like another surgery. What are the possible downsides? If need be, seek a second opinion from another surgeon... Continue Reading


Re: My daughter is in pain

Her boss does indeed sound like a moron -- and a cold-hearted one at that! You can certainly pursue action under the disability laws as suggested above, and you probably should. Meanwhile, I hope your daughter will also look for another, more accommodating job. Asperger's and chronic pain are a lot to put up with all at once. My daughter has autoimmune disease that causes chronic joint and muscle pain -- and she works with children and youth on the autism spectrum. Sorry your daughter is having such a difficult time. Hope better times are ahead. Continue Reading

Absolutely, it would be fun. I've used this cartoon several times, just for fun: No, I don't ride a motorcycle in real life, but the pic embodies the cool-mature-lady attitude I often enjoy as I breeze through the boards....... Continue Reading

Re: Disgusted with host (Gabriel? on at 9:48 PT or 12:48 ET, Friday Oct. 17th)

In Pet Lovers 1413819152.15

You're obligated to provide good care for a pet -- or to find a suitable home for it if it becomes impossible to keep it. There can be many reasons why it becomes impractical to keep a pet -- family members who develop pet allergies, a pet who doesn't get along with children, changes in your health that make it impossible for you to care for the animal, and more. No one should ever mistreat or neglect an animal -- but acquiring a pet is NOT the same as marriage, for pete's sake! You don't pledge "till death do us part", and sometimes real life issues make it impossible to keep an animal in ... Continue Reading
