Homework on the blackboard, apples on my desk. Class is in session.
Note to Eric:
Mr. Holder - I curse you for the rest of your life for depriving my family of a terrific income source due to your “preferences”.
Sorry class is so late. Was out late last night. We had a rollover, even before I got back from the station after filing the PCR the pics were all over FB. Gotta love it. Between my late night and my morning exercises, I am late openning class. Sorry.
Love your tagline. LOL
Explaining the earth, atmospheric
Has become the left’s strange neoteric
Since the globe isn’t warm
“Climate Change” is the norm
They use concepts and words, esoteric
Have a dentist appt. Hate the dentist.
They should have their own schools.
I have been delaying mine for 4 months now. Now that I am getting better, I guess I’ll call for an appt. It will be bad news though. So I feel your pain.
Speaking of neoteric, we haven’t heard anything from the newlywed from the auld sod.
Hope they’re not running into Kimye’s entourage.
This is to remedy decay under an existing crown which is not bothering me. So I’m undergoing a painful procedure to hopefully avoid future worse pain.
Do you have to do antibiotics for a teeth cleaning? They told us that we needed to do antibiotics whenever we go to the dentist for two years or the rest of our lives. Between that and the pain, gees, what the heck am I doing?
Probably not wanting to spend wedding $ on an intl data plan ; )
A++ I am not a fan of hers. Not at all.
I did the antibiotics for several years, but no longer. The dentist can give them to you if you let them know you need them. I just had a crown drilled off and decay removed and didn’t take any antibiotics. But it’s prob 9-10 yrs by now.
He posted a pic of a castle on FB mentioning that it was just a place to crash.
Honestly, as a veteran of two hip replacements, I’m telling you you will never regret doing this.
Practitioners think of contemporary knockout games as neoteric, but they are as old as Cain and Abel.
I’ve been fortunate for several years now - no issues at the dentist. I hope to keep it that way!
They have WiFi over there, too.
If he didn’t tweet it, I didn’t see it.
(Personally, I would've had more competition to determine a winner perhaps a tiebreaker like spelling the opponent's surname, or even the WFTD ;-)
Let's ask Hillary clinton since she was named for Sir Edmond Hillary before he ever achieved fame for climbing Mt. Everest
They said the recommendation is for definitely the first two years, then your choice. To cover themselves they say lifetime, I guess.
There is a couple I often see at the diner in the mornings. I think both are retired NYC cops. She just had a hip replacement and we chatted briefly. Apparently, when using the commode they had a seat with handles built in and she got her butt wedged in and couldn’t get up. LMAO She had me laughing at her foibles since her surgery. She is now a month out and just ditched the walker.
Really, who makes up this stuff and then thinks the public is that gullible?
My mother grew up in Painted Post, I spent my preschool years living there. Nice little town. I was hearing about the spelling bee champ on the radio this morning. A+++
So last year I got a bridge and a crown on top of that. This year, both knees. The joys of aging.
That’s exactly what I had to postpone until this year. I hope there’s enough there to fix and replace the crown. I don’t want another implant. And crown. Honestly, if the crown was seated correctly, how did this sort of thing happen? I can’t clean under them.
I was at the Corning plant in Painted Post once. Rented a Cadillac with rear wheel drive. It snowed about 8 inches overnight. Good time.
Yeah - but it beats the alternative!
I still use an old dictionary from 1968 on my desk, which was awarded by the Buffalo News at that time for everyone who made it to the Erie County “spell-offs” ... Only made it through a few rounds then, and can’t imagine getting to the stage where these kids were.
Corning is my hometown. I lived near the Corning Glass Center growing up. Was born in Corning Hospital. Still have tons of relatives there and go back often.
Do you mean Sullivan Park? DH used to work there, still have relatives who work for Corning.
How cool. I remember spelling bees. I used to spell with a pause for syllables. The teachers always used to comment on that. It made it easier for me to see the word as I spelled it. Why I recall that I don’t know.
That sounds like a very useful mnemonic device (spell that, BTW ;)
You also don’t forget the word that put you out of the competition as I recall it was “sedative”, misspelled with an -I- instead of the -A-. Perhaps I was thinking of the word “sedition”; even at that young age, political views were being formed .....
it was completely painless and efficiently done. He is hoping that he caught it in time and that i won’t need a root canal. which is the drawback to waiting too long. i just have the numbness. xsbaby had a filling at the same time, so we are both numb in the face.
You lucked out. I would have to have the root canal and then a brand new crown. If I was lucky enough to have enough tooth structure. Otherwise, implant and new crown. I hope I have half your luck!
It was in Painted Post. They made catalytic converters there. That’s all I remember. Would have been in the mid 90s.
well had i waited until august which was my original plan, i prob would not have been as lucky. i do not do implants under any circumstances, my insurance doesn’t cover dime one of those and they sound horrifically painful to me. I ask for whatever they can do which will be at least partially covered by insurance. My portion of today’s work was $600. Implants cost thousands of uninsured dollars. They push them bc of course they are the modern thing, but until insurance covers them i will not be a taker. Not like i have some oddball insurance- we have BS/BC, and a cadillac plan at that.
xsbaby and i stopped at the starbucks in Falls Church right after the appt. while in line a guy comes up to me and say’s,
i’m bad with names, i’m ford... and my mind is frantically scrolling through the rolodex of my life trying to figure out where i know the guy from- is it a Gonzaga dad, is he a St James parent? etc. He asked if i was “playing hooky today” so that was a clue that i must know him from work bc otherwise, how would he even know i am employed. i finally was able to figure out that he worked the same place that i did, but i hadn’t laid eyes on him in decades. He apparently lives in FC city, walking distance from that starbucks. i wish i had had the presence of mind to ask if he still works at our place of employ, but i was still taken aback. FC is sooo ridic. xsbaby and i were both gasping aloud bc we saw two separate vehicles with heretofore unseen obama bumper stickers. One said OMG, obama’s my guy in 2012. SERIOUSLY? then another one had I LOVE OBAMACARE and a second bumper sticker with a pic of obams and mooch embracing that said four more years. Can you possibly think that’s cool to still have on your car???
I saw an “I love Obamacare” sticker recently, too.
Remember, when you rob Peter, Paul loves the results.
None of mine were covered either. I have an $8000 deductible too. Dental insurance has not changed since the 80s, they still don’t cover fluoride treatments for anyone over 14. That’s crazy. Every type of healthcare expense has shot up yet they still will only cover $1000 of expenses per year and I can do that in a 20 minute visit. I need to think of something else or my head will explode.
this was a red cadillac or some sort of luxury car with a personalized plate saying SHRKLADY,so this was not a Paul but probs a Peter driving it.
It wouldn’t be cool here, but up there, almost everyone is on the government dole, one way or the other.
I haven’t seen a positive Obama bumper sticker anywhere out here since the tourists all went away because of their darling’s bad economy.
If someone showed up with a sticker like the one you describe and parked at a local business, they might not even have a vehicle left when they came back outside-no one here is happy about the ruin of our tourist industry-those snowbirds were a big part of our economy-my customers included...
my kids fluoride was covered until age 18 and then they stopped getting it. They use ACT rinse at home and call it good. our insurance covers cleaning and checkup every six mo. and a portion of fillings, crowns, root canals etc. To me it’s better than nothing at all, and i will go toothless rather than have an implant!
we live in very different parts of the country, but i still assumed that there would be some disaffection from his cause. our economy is also not bad here, so that wouldn’t be a reason. but then again, they elected carpet-bagger McAuliffe in the not so distant past.
You’re assuming they are unhappy with their choices. They’re not.
