Itchy- you better not misplace those glasses! The face recognition sounds really neat.

I went to the gym this morning and I got a hair cut. It is a rainy and cloudy day....starting to feel like autumn.

My brother only has 2 weeks left of the Appalachian Trail. Excited to see his final picture on Mt. Katahdin and then see him in person too.

Hi all!

Midwest,
Here is a YouTube video showing Windows Hello at work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMdVHDqJsEs
There are dozens more of them there on the right side of the page.
Which hair did you have cut?

X2 Gil.

Have a great week overs.

Hi overs

It's nearly 3am, I feel a song coming on....I'm just not used to training, learning things, I'm absolutely exhausted! Roll on Friday tea time!

Itchy, yeah the prednisolone's do come with a price, I'm open to all infection, and boy do I catch them. I was in the docs a while ago and there was a young lady with her baby sat near me. She got round to telling me her baby had chicken pox, not good for baby but nightmare for me! I expected to see shingles appear as I have in the past but just got the nerve end skin pain, if you know what I mean. So they are bad tablets but I can breathe with them. I'm on three different inhalers also. I'm still waiting for an appointment with ENT which they think will help.

Midwest, sounds exciting for your brother on the Apalachian Trail! How was the gym? Are you getting in training to join him?

Hope everyone is keeping well, Suze, EEK!❤️

Toots , good to see you back to your normal self!

Catch you all later, may get a few more hours sleep before work.

Hey! SR kept me signed in for the first time in months! What's up with that??? I'll take it though!
It's my birthday! Well in three hours anyway. I'm 39 now, one more year of my thirties to go!
The last decade has been a HUUUUUUGGEEEEE learning curve, but I'm glad that I'm getting to the finish line (starting line of the next!) all in one piece and better than when I started. Thank God. I kind of feel like I'm starting over, or something like that.
Anyway I have more freedom right now than I ever could have asked for, really. This is all I ever really wanted when I look back, to be free to do what I want, to be independent. I am both of those things. And healthy. What more could I ever want? I'm going out with five friends tomorrow for dinner, and they are such nice people. I'm happy to have these friends. In the last few years I've made some great friends and it feels good because in the past my relationships always crashed and burned.
Anyway, I think my point is that I'm grateful.

Hope all are well! (((Mags))) hugs to you.
Midwest, cool about your brother!
Suze, only ten days to go! Thank you so much for the gracious invitation, I only wish I could come!

Toots,
Glad you feel better. Wow, I didn't know you were feeling so poorly!

Mags,
I know you're between a rock and a hard place treating one causing the other. I hope your doc has some solution for you.

Happy Birthday IP!
Many more sober returns.

I'm up binge watching "Enlightened" with Laura Dern.

Happy birthday, IP!

Congrats to Dharma, Kris, Wolfie and Toots on soberversaries

Itchy, I use Windows Hello on my Surface 3. Usually it works well but every now and then it hiccups. Also, I've read that one of the potential problems with it is that it's supposedly possible for anyone to get in by holding up a photo of us. I don't know how true that is but also read it in connection with cellphones getting facial recognition.

Have a good day to all!

Happy Birthday, IP! I was still drinking daily at 39, so you're way ahead of the game!

Fran had to go back to the ICU again yesterday. Still having problems with mucus clogging her breathing tube. So it goes.

Have a great Thursday, overs!

Have a wonderful birthday, InPar!

You really have gone through many adventures and taken many risks--and you've come shining through on top!

You deserve the celebration!

Happy Birthday Inpar!

It's great that you are on your sober journey at such a young age relative to most of us here. The world is your oyster.

Sorry to hear that Fran is back in ICU, FBL. She certainly is one tough lady.

I hope all of the ailing Overs continue to mend and feel better quickly. The cold and flu season has not even begun in earnest for most of us.

Best wishes for a good day all!

Happy Birthday InPar! It sounds like your plans are a wonderful way to celebrate.

Wolfie, Kris, Dharma, my sober twinnies, congratulations on another month.

Will be thinking of Fran, FBL.

Yeah, Itchy, it knocked me right outta my socks!

Finally woke up today feeling clear headed enough to upload my latest novel. It is fitting that I am giving myself visible proof of the huge positive changes that have happened in my life since I stopped drinking 4 1/2 years ago. I'm pretty stoked with myself today!

Congrats Toots! I am glad you are feeling better.

FBL- I am sorry to hear Fran is back in ICU. I hope it is just a quick stay there.

IP- Happy Birthday!! I think it is wonderful you have made some great friends since you have been sober. I have been working on that.

Mags- I hope you can get into the ENT soon and start to feel better. I had fun at the gym yesterday. I did the elliptical and walked on the treadmill. I won't see my brother until he comes home after he finishes the AT. We may do some hiking sometime soon though. I would love too.

Itchy- thanks for the video! That is extremely fast. I did get more then "A hair cut" / I am going to check out enlightened soon.

I hope everyone has a great day. I better get moving.

CONGRATULATIONS, TOOTS!

I remember what a funk you were in: much to do with no motivation. It all seemed too much--and then came the problems with your parents and this surprisingly stubborn infection that blindsided you.

You did it! A huge goal accomplished!

I hope you do something extravagant to reward yourself today!
