I'm frustrated today. I woke up with a painful eye issue. I've had pink eye before and I do not believe I have that. My eyelid is a little swollen and red. The eye isn't red but it is a little bit 'gooky'. I have an appointment later on in the d... Read more

PAIN or GAIN?
The middle of the year folks! My how time flies.

Don't that beat all.....
Sometimes, I even shock myself! I don't have much to say today - what is up with that? I have been nicknamed 'chatty patty', by some, which amuses me. However, today I'm feeling rather quiet.

I love learning new things. As I go through ... Read more
