Thank you Thea for that idea.   I wanted a machine that has that needle-down option because it takes the strain off the shoulder having to reach all the time.  Arthritis and tendonitis can be flared up really fast with that motion if I'm sewing for a long time.   I'll take a look at Walmart the next time I'm in there.

   We're waiting for the next update on FIL.  DH is mowing while I man the phones.  His dad was taken with pneumonia on Wed. night or early Thurs.  He had a bout of de-fib yesterday so he's now on a heart monitor as well.  He just wants to go but he claims MIL won't let him because she doesn't want to be alone.  It's a really sad situation.  Dad keeps holding on even after his daughters have told him that she won't be alone, they will all make sure she's taken care of.  We live 800 miles away so it's hard for us to just sit by the phone.  That's why we went up there for 2 weeks in late July and Aug.  He also has cancer which is spreading so we know it won't be long now.  We're both packed and ready to go at a moment's notice.  DH can't drive those kind of distances so it's both of us going.  Thank goodness I have a housekeeper that is local and she has keys to my house so she can take care of fur babies at a moment's notice too.  Thanks for listening to my jibberish.

I love this site, but I have about reached my limit with the problems it has been having.   Some days it will work just fine then the next you can't get on and if you do it takes forever to load the threads hard to get into the groups, it is really starting to get on my last nerve.   Now I have found when you try to email admin, it goes to a site called    FOGBUGZ and they give you a case number, but then you never get a response from anyone.

You know it has been doing this for a while now And I don't understand what is taking so long to get it fixed.  This is the only site I have trouble with, It is almost like they have got a big virus.  who knows, can't even get any info from FACEBOOK now.

Thea, your display is so fun!  My neighbor decorates on a big scale for Halloween and she'd be green with envy if she saw this.  Everyone going by your home will have a smile on their face.  I'm a kid at heart as well, you go girl.

Well, I had to call them last week because I was using my old computer and couldn't remember my sign on name or password.  Someone answered right away and helped me and I was back in business immediately.   The only problem I forsee is that I will have forgotten what I signed on with on the new computer when I get it back. LOL   Ginny

gini:
  They cut out the bad part of the tube, reconnected it and put a shunt over it.   They will go bAck and remove the shunt in a month

shunts work well.   Glad that is all he needed.

Diana, it is not your FIL or MIL's decision when he will pass. It is God's decision. When we die is predestined. When God gives us life, He also has our date to return Home on the books. It is so hard on those left behind. But, when ever I have someone close, I first think of what they are seeing now, where they are. Give this advise to both of them.

Just remembered, I won an eBook from Stitch This.  I answered the Quirky Question of the week, "If someone wrote a book about your life, what would the title of that book be?"  I entered, "How Quilting Saved my Sanity."  I chose "Quilts From Grandmother's Garden".  How cool is that, my winning?

Susie:

If anyone hears of a payroll position, please let me know! (I am open to relocating)

Thanks!

I don't know if Fresenius has any openings posted now, but seems they are always hiring.  Just google and you can look at postings by state or position I think.  Most of payroll/financial is done out of Tennessee or Texas,  I think.  But there may be jobs open in other states for similar positions as well. 

Fresenius is I think now the largest dialysis company in the world.  and continually growing.  And from my opinion, their payroll department could really use some help.  They forgot to pay me for 6 weeks.  When I temporarily went to full time, I went from hourly to salaried, (so they could have me work 50 hours and get paid 40)  And since our pay stubs are electronic I didn't know until it was almost too late.  I could have had a lot of bouncing checks.

The next biggest company is Davita.  Some of these big companies have websites just for hiring.
