A root canal or an extraction?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 10:09pm Funky16Corners:

Root canal. I misread your post.
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 10:10pm Erica:

Yeah. My first root canal was infected. They had to remove the crown and the tooth. Now it's just a hole.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 10:13pm Funky16Corners:

Ugh. Every trip to the dentist these days is a chore. Makes me wish I'd taken better care of my teeth when I was younger.
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 10:14pm Erica:

Tell me about it. Even when I do take care of my teeth, I still get cavaties and craze line cracks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 10:15pm Funky16Corners:

I think part of the problem was a hack dentist that I went to in my 20s, who did some damage. The current dentist who I've been seeing for maybe 10 years is great.

Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 10:20pm still b/p:

Was hoping to afford dental work before my dentist of 25+ years retired, but I missed him. His goodbye message to patients arrived in the mail the same day last week as a retirement notice from a chiropractor/friend who's treated me for a number of things, also across 25 years. Somebody blew the "take your shingle down, doc!" whistle 'round here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 10:21pm Funky16Corners:

I worry about that with a couple of the doctors I see on the reg, like they're going to Miami and handing me off to someone who doesn't know me the way they do.

my favorite dentist doesn't accept any health insurance. so much for that then.
and the only chiropractor (which i seriously desperately need right now) that's ever helped me lives maybe 100 miles south of me, in nj; and he's got to be retiring soon as well.
oh well woe is me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 10:26pm Funky16Corners:

Have you tried a warm compress (in addition to whatever pain pills you have handy)?

Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 10:33pm still b/p:

When my shoulder went plenty painful kerfluey over the winter, friends had recommendations for this hands-on person or that medical person, but I went to the doc friend, and got to appreciate EXACTLY the things that steered my choice: he was interested, gave good attention and time, made it reassuringly personal -- the features and factors sadly and coldly and offensively long vanished from most other medical experiences. A good guy among the soulless ranks.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 10:39pm Funky16Corners:

It's funny, I'm older than some of my doctors now. And, I'm not sure whether or not to be insulted - someone gave me a senior discount the other day (that I didn't ask for). Harrumph!
  Wed. 7/25/18 10:39pm chresti:

Insurance will send me a new card where, surprise ! Different doctor!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 10:39pm coelacanth∅:

oh Franco it must have slipped my mind.
it's clogged again, by the way...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 10:43pm coelacanth∅:

chresti they do that to me every year when i renew, and i call them and tell them i'm not going to that new coctor and they send me another card with my old doctor's name on it. but this time it wont happen. my doctor and that insurance company parted ways last year, but they gave me a 1 year grace period.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 10:45pm Funky16Corners:

Our saving grave is my wife's excellent insurance. It got us through her (two) cancers and my kidney bullshit
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 10:45pm Franco Twinkie:

First time I was offered a senior discount I was at The Cartoon Museum in San Francisco, and yes I went Harrumph until the young shaver at the counter said: $2.50. Now that I am a senior I get pissed if they don't offer me a price break.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 10:45pm coelacanth∅:

i like him because he understands that i'm trying to be healthy, not just relieve the symptoms; but more than that when i tell him i'm using golden seal root for my infection (ie) he doesn't smirk and patronise me. he fully respects it - even if he doesn't know anything about it.

Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 10:50pm Erica:

The only reason I had to switch doctors was because my clinic in Paulsboro closed down and had to go to the one in Woodbury. And the doctors keep transferring to Mullica Hill. I was supposed to finally meet my new doctor the week of the 4th of July but with the holiday and my sister's wedding happening, plus we had that awful heatwave, it had to be cancelled.

i like that when the home recording of Timmy Thomas was sent to the record execs for consideration of re-doing it professionally whomever got the tape had the very good sense to know it was perfect as it was.
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 10:53pm still b/p:

Talking to a young bank teller several weeks ago about checks -- gave up the regular checkbook system a few years back. Replacing them is an expense, and I don't need 'em other than for monthly rent and a few others in a year. But there are pros and cons of the alternatives such as individual bank checks. She asks my age, and when I tell her I'll hit a milestone shortly, she gives good news. And about 2 weeks ago, what was delivered to me? Free checks, bitchezzzzzz!

And now, I pause my own jeep tour of age-land and patient-land to say my ears, shoulder, teeth and checkbook are all enjoying the HELL out of tonight's music!

Heard an interview with Temptation Otis Williams a few weeks ago, prompted by the musical Ain't Too Proud. He covered many things..and you can't cover everything, but when he was emphasizing the power and endurance of the music, I noted with disappointment that he offered NO shout-out or hat-tip at all to the songwriters, the producers or -- come on! -- the musicians who obviously were crucial in the success, sound-distinction and legend status of that music.

spb, seriously. -to be honest there are many of the groovier songs (like message from a black man) that i wouldn't care if there were even less vocals. i like all their voices, but i don't often like the showmanship approach of switching off between them. it makes the songs seem less personal - to me.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:25pm coelacanth∅:

nah Franco. it's great for this (ungena ), because it's a communal type of message. no just some of the more personal songs...or maybe it's when they trade of line by line. i can't think of an example except papa was a rolling stone and it doesn't apply to that either because it's actually perfect for a narrative of 5 children asking their mother questions.

i now have a mouse in a trap. it's too late for me to go driving to some distant drop-off point but i feel bad for it. it's going to be a long night.
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:34pm Franco Twinkie:

Funny you should ask, Erica! I need to get some because Chresti used it all to polish the living room floor.
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:35pm Erica:

Haha Franco.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:36pm coelacanth∅:

the fact that i haven't needed to buy maple syrup in over a year is evidence that i'm not eating oatmeal often enough.
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:38pm Franco Twinkie:

It's also great for calling up the spirits of dead rock stars.
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:40pm Erica:

You have a twisted mind Franco.

Larry, I must take my leave. Catch you down the road. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:41pm Funky16Corners:

Nite Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:41pm coelacanth∅:

really! i did not know that. i haven't had much luck with what i thought was the standard, really low quality patchouli oil combined with weimaraner drool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:42pm coelacanth∅:

- and i have some serious questions to ask, if i can ever get through.

Actually, the song I was thinking of is called Johnny Porter and it’s on “chirpin’”
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:43pm Erica:

Sorry Jeff. Have a good nite.
  Wed. 7/25/18 11:43pm chresti:

I hate maple syrup
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:44pm Franco Twinkie:

This is true, Erica. I put some in a paper cup by the wall heater, closed my eyes and held my breath, and the next thing I knew, Syd Barrett was in the kitchen eating Coco Puffs.
  Wed. 7/25/18 11:44pm chresti:

Butter goes well with my oatmeal along with some wakame
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:45pm coelacanth∅:

...especially for mick jaggar.
oh wait, he's not *actually* dead yet.
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:46pm still b/p:

Stinginess in any application of maple syrup is key. Pancakes want only light filigree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:46pm coelacanth∅:

okay well i don't have anything urgent to ask Syd Barrett; but i wouldn't mind just eating cereal together sometime.
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:47pm Franco Twinkie:

Just follow the instructions on the back of the box...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:48pm coelacanth∅:

rolled oats, boiling water, ginger and cinnamon powders, maple syrup, pecans. mm-mm.
  Wed. 7/25/18 11:48pm rw:

Hey! I’ve only been able to catch bits and pieces this evening but have dug them all. Thanks as always F16C!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:48pm Funky16Corners:

Mmmm, I Like golden raisins cooked into my oatmeal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:49pm Funky16Corners:

Hey rw! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:49pm coelacanth∅:

i really can't imagine wakame and oatmeal together, but i may try it.
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:50pm Erica:

These Crystal Illusions are making me sleepy.
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:50pm Franco Twinkie:

Rw! where have you been?
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:50pm Erica:

These Crystal Illusions are making me sleepy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:50pm coelacanth∅:

oh right Larry. sometimes i put raisins or dried mulberries in as well.
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:51pm Erica:

Sorry for the repeat. the page was stuck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:51pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, there's something up with the chat/playlist interface tonight
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:51pm coelacanth∅:

i don't really cook my rolled oats. just boiled water in the bowl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:52pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - It's kind of a dreamy song
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:52pm Franco Twinkie:

Coel, I've been living with Chresti for twenty years, and it still amazes me the stuff she eats!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/25/18 11:53pm coelacanth∅:

the production is subdued
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:57pm still b/p:

My regular Bob's Red Mill Muesli has a bunch of stuff in it, and I add dried strawberry bits, plenty of cinnamon, and blueberries if I've got 'em...and, yet...."Where's me pap?" Well, there it is right there. Always stays very...modest in flavor.
  Wed. 7/25/18 11:57pm chresti:

I got the wakame idea from learning the Scottish make bread with oats and laver
Avatar Wed. 7/25/18 11:58pm Franco Twinkie:

Avatar Thu. 7/26/18 12:00am still b/p:

Was looking today at an at least 10 year old sack of beer bread mix in my cupboard. Should I make it?

Thanks for all the flavors and goodnight!
