    Quite possibly. But I am a bit spaced out at the moment from side-effects of these meds. And wasn't really concentrating.

    I grew up in Seattle and so rarely used umbrellas as a kid. The rain there tends to be drizzly and light most of the time, so going out without an umbrella is fine. In NYC, though, the rain can come down so fast and so heavy that your clothes will be quite literally soaked through if you walk just a block or two: like you jumped in a pool fully dressed. It would be ridiculous to try to get by without an umbrella!

    And, RevdKathy I hope you feel better!

    Thank you thestrangequark, I'm fine. Much, much better than I have been of late. The price is slight fuzziness, sluggishness in the morning and a dry mouth. So I call that a win... as long as I don't do too many stupid things like that!

    /nods agreement.

    True. Better shoe makers will tell you what last the shoe is made on. That way, once you know your size in that last, you can buy different styles of shoe from them without having to try them on in person.

    They do look awesome, don't they! I'm seriously tempted to add one to my rotation, for really stormy days. We don't get all that many of them, but it would be nice to have an option for when we do. Plus, I've always wanted a dark green brolly...

    ... plus, imagine how fast Mary Poppins could fly using one of those! :D

    And they say you can't buy a fun home chemistry set any more... :D

    One effect is the same -not in the same league of course.

    I know EXACTLY what she said, and yes, it IS wonderful--but not as wonderful as a showerhead with a
    "massage setting."

    TIL...that Amazon thinks some really weird things about me (like everyone else). After shopping last night for pearls, for a friend's birthday, I found this under "Recommendations" this morning:
    [​IMG]

    I keep hearing the "One of These Things is Not Like The Other" song in my head. How does a double-bladed Bear Gryllis pocket knife fit in with a cheap strand of pearls? You can't kill a grizzly with a cheap pearl necklace, although I suppose you might offend his sense of fashion.
