    True.....but a little more extreme. I have an enlarged thyroid. Thank God it was not cancer like my sister's. But, on jan 23 I go to the specialist and they are going to fix me. So, all this extra weight my thyroid put on me they tell me should go away! To help I am going to work out like crazy! Who knew the thyroid was so important for so many things. (Sleeping, weight, mood etc.)

    just a quick note about your thyroid. Had to have mine irradiated for the same problem many years ago. Don't know if they still use the same method now, but it will take a few weeks to get your dose of Synthroid correct, so don't expect miracles overnight!!!

    True! We won an AOS award on a paph and I have won a few trophies for displays. Here is a photo of the one for best table top display:

    True - I can take basic pictures, but really have no clue when it comes to trying to actually adjust any of the settings or use things like film speed and light levels. It's very sad really, our camera is under used....

    TPBM is contemplating early retirement

    False....although I did have a huge battle with them at my parent's hosue when I was younger before college. They would dig and eat my bulbs! They even attacked the glass on my downstairs windows! They were ugly and fierce!

    The person below me.....loves martial arts! Especially judo and jujitsu.

    True. I was the martial arts sponsor for my university for 4 years. I found it fascinating to watch, but was never really very good at it. I am too tall. heh.
