I'm getting a new sewing machine

I'm so excited!
The one I have is starting to get tired, we are solvent - in fact, we just did our taxes, and apparently, you pay less on retirement income - so I decided it was time to upgrade. I looked around and decided on a Pfaff. New machines has some jazzy features, like more lights and more stitches, but the Pfaff has IDT, meaning it has even feed built right in. I'm getting the QE 4.2, which has 10" to the right of the presser foot. That'll make working a a big quilt much easier.
It should come in this week, and I have a tank top and cardigan in blue sweater knit for my first project. Can't wait!

Fallout 4, anyone?

My husband persuaded me that we should play it. I'm not the most intense gamer; that means I like playing, but the violence is pretty much my least favorite part. I've been immersed in ESO for the past year, and since Bethesday made both games, I figured I couldn't go too wrong. So far it's been fun...still just getting started. He's at about level 8 and having a ball!

Great Vegetarian recipes?

My husband decided to go veg after watching "Forks Over Knives" last week, and he thinks it would help his cholesterol numbers. I'm very out of practice on this particular genre of cooking, as my vegetarian daughter has been grown up and on her own for quite a while. So, although I'm surfing all over, and finding some good stuff, does anyone have any dishes they absolutely love?


I seem to have just come down with this dreaded condition. It emerged after I took Prednisone for an ear problem. Apparently, the drug stops your body's natural immune system, and it was just enough that it encouraged the shingles to come out and make its presence known.
I developed all the lesser symptoms, like headache, nausea, and chills. And there is no rash yet. But the shooting pains up and down my left side are awful!
It went away for a while today, so when I visited my doctor and he confirmed the diagnosis, I didn't ask about pain mitigation. I plan to call tomorrow and ask, but is there anyone out there who can advise on this? As of now I'm using Advil (ibuprofen) and pretty much at the maximum safe dosage recommended.
