question about symptoms of menopause

Have others here been through menopause? Was it your experience that hot flashes occurred mostly in mornings and evenings? How weird. Also, did/do you sweat? A lot? In a house with the a/c on?

Make it stop...

Does one tip a personal trainer? If so, how much?

I think I've asked this before, but I don't remember.

need ideas for group gift of food treats

Mrs. Venation's dad has Alzheimer's and has been in an assisted living facility for a little over a year. The staff there takes very good care of him.

To say thank you, we want to send the staff a gift of treats. First stop: Harry & David. But I remembered that their baskets contain not much bigger than sample sizes of each treat. We want to send something better.

Edited to add that we'll be ordering off the interbuts, and shipping to Tennessee.

Ideas? Thanks!

PS !

George is gone. What's to become of Lennie?

George & Lennie were my sister's cats. George died today; they helped him to the rainbow bridge. He was twelve years old. Lennie is his littermate. When I heard, I cried first for my brother-in-law, then for my sister, then hardest, I sobbed without restraint, for Lennie.

My sister told me that last night, Lennie was acting strangely, sniffing around and hissing at George. Why do you think he did that? Today, he is hiding, and will not eat.

They were inseparable, George and Lennie.

What will become of Lennie?

QUICK! I need something HILARIOUS to blow off Mrs. V.'s socks! Whatcha got?

It has to be clean, not disgusting, and totally apolitical.

I think Mrs. Venation bought me a Nolan Ryan autographed baseball . . . .

It's an extravagance, and I've been wanting one for about forty years. I don't think it cost as much as I thought it would, even with the MLB certificate. But I don't care about investment value. He is my # 1 all-time player. I have a baseball that he pitched at Anaheim Stadium in 1989 -- Chili Davis fouled it off and I got it! Always wished there was a way I could get Ryan to autograph it. But if she truly did buy this for me --

Was the song "Turning Japanese" really about

masturbation and prison?

no sex, no drugs, no wine, no women
no fun, no sin, no you, no wonder it's dark
everyone around me is a total stranger
everyone avoids me like a cyclone ranger
