    Other diagnostic tests to assess the potential causes for sinusitis may include a mucus culture, nasal endoscopy (see below), X-rays, allergy testing, CT scan of the sinuses, or blood work.;,-..

    Ok your highness, I just scheduled my first platelet donation for Saturday. What should I expect other than it takes forever and apparently, it makes the donor very cold, so I was told to bring a blanket.

    November 15, 2011 at 1:51 pm |
    • Queen of Everything@Truth

      I'd say other than a long time and being cold, it shouldn't be much different than donating blood.

      Where is Dixie Sugarbaker when you need her!!?? Or Tazer??

        I just can't get myself worked up about Jude. He has already formed his opinion about us and found us lacking. It's his loss and I'm not going to beat myself up about it. The only actions you can change are your own.

        I know, but the comments are getting worse and more personal....okay I will breathe and ignore and enjoy this place. This is one of my "happy places" to escape to and I get mad when it is being ruined by the riff raff! :)

        Wise words, my Queen. Wise words.

      • JBJingles@AleeD From Home Sweet Home

        btw – your earlier post on the same subject as Queen's was right on and well said. I think some people get jealous of the freindship we have here and don't understand that they could be part of it if willing to be kind and funny and non-judgemental...

        I think that was the one...something about mean spirited, and something in bloomers! LOL

    OMG! We thought you got ate by a bare bear!! Welcome back, glad you were just off having fun.

    November 15, 2011 at 1:18 pm |
    • MT Miner

      Lol, thanks. No bear attacks for me, but there have been a bunch of them this year, just last weekend 2 guys got chewed on a bit by a sow griz with cubs about 40 miles south of where I am sitting. Its been the usual 3 month blitz for me, lost 35 lbs so far, out of holes in my belt, will take me all winter to get that weight back, lol

      November 15, 2011 at 1:32 pm |
      • Truth@MTM, JBJ

        I have long supported the right to arm bears...

        November 15, 2011 at 1:36 pm |
      • MT Miner

        Lol, the bears around here are well armed I think, they managed to eat two tourists in yellowstone park this year, a good start as some locals would say................

    Hi Ho! Marvelously nice morning to you all! Going on an official Wine Tasting today. Think it will be kind of fun!

    November 15, 2011 at 1:08 pm |
    • AleeD@MicheleG™

      Hey! How's it going? Where is your wine tasting going to be?

      November 15, 2011 at 1:24 pm |
    • MicheleG™

      We're going to pick a winery at random in the Temecula Wine Country and go for it!

      November 15, 2011 at 1:26 pm |
    • AleeD@MicheleG™

      Mmmm. Do you like any particular kind of wine? I'm partial to Merlot.

      November 15, 2011 at 1:29 pm |
      • JBJingles@AleeD

        I knew there was a reason I liked you! I too am partial to a nice dry Merlot.

        November 15, 2011 at 2:15 pm |
      • AleeD@JBJingles

        'Cuz of my dry wit? Oh, the Merlot thing. Riiiight Got it. :D
        We were at a high-end restaurant for birthday on one particular occasion. I asked the waiter for a recommendation on a Merlot because I just was learning about them. He asked if I would like to have a little fun? "Of course I would!", says I. He brought out 5 wine glasses each with about a finger's width of wine to taste. He said, one of them is not a Merlot. If you try each of these and decide you like the one that isn't, then we know you don't really like Merlot. And you shouldn't torture yourself any further if you don't. Fair enough, I said.

        I did choose a Merlot. The odd one out tasted like battery acid and turned out to be a Cab.
        I'm no Conny Seuer, but I like what I like. :D

        November 15, 2011 at 2:37 pm |
    • MicheleG™

      I'm beginning to favor Pinot Noir over burgundy or Merlot. However I'[m not a real wine connoisseur. Just a "tourist."

  6. Truth

    Ok, this is awkward...One of my vendors has a voice that makes him sound EXACTLY like the Frontier Airlines rabbit. I have to make an effort to not laugh. We are meeting this afternoon.

    Welcome back MTM. How was the hunt so far? I am going out next week.

    November 15, 2011 at 12:57 pm |
    • MT Miner

      Thanks. it has been kind of random, the archery elk season never really peaked out, was too warm, most of the activity was at night. managed to call in a dozen bulls, but none presented a "good" archery shot. think there are 9 deer in barn now, but no elk, that will be the focus to close out the season.

      November 15, 2011 at 1:01 pm |
      • Truth@MTM

        I have a kick azz recipe for venison stew. Goes GREAT in the winter.

        November 15, 2011 at 1:05 pm |
      • MT Miner

        Can't beat venison stew in teh winter, that is for certain! I usually grind my deer except for the back straps and tenderloins, all that ground makes excellent chili, tacos, sketti, meatloaf, etc. The elk on the otherhand, that is my roasts, round steaks, etc, I keep every good cut in that form, dont think there is any better wild meat than elk, although lion is a close second, the pork of the wild game.

        November 15, 2011 at 1:10 pm |
      • Truth@MTM

        Funny that you mention lion. Last night, I watched one of my favorite 1980s films, "Out of Africa", and I love the scene where they get attacked by lions and drop the both of them. Always wondered what they taste like.

        November 15, 2011 at 1:16 pm |

      Lol !! I called Kohl's & talked to a Customer Service Rep & he sounded just like Mr. Weed on Family Guy . I told him & we laughed soooo hard !!! Hi Everyone . I get to work these next 2 weeks - no beer til Friday morning ;-)))

  7. DJChilllyPhil, UPSET

    So I just got back from the bank.

    Turns out the fraud wasn't in any charge on my card, but in the actual call itself that I received this morning. Closed the card down and cut it up and now I have a temp. card and waiting for a new one.

    Freaking A...

    November 15, 2011 at 12:56 pm |
    • AleeD@DJFrostyPhil

      The fraud call was a fraud. OMG! What a PITA!
      Need to bang your head? :D

      November 15, 2011 at 1:06 pm |
  8. MT Miner

    Mornin all. Back from the mountains for a few days, then 10 more on the mountain to close out the season

    November 15, 2011 at 12:52 pm |
    • AleeD@MT Miner

      Holy cow & welcome back! Have you been mountaineering all this time you've been away?

      November 15, 2011 at 12:55 pm |
      • MT Miner

        Almost the entire time, the few days I have been back to work have been playing catchup. Takes time to fill 2 elk tags, 3 deer tags, bear tag and wolf tag, not to mention the bride and the kiddo had tags to fill as well. still have a a few to go, but the last 10 days of the season are usually the best here, and I have them off :)

        November 15, 2011 at 12:58 pm |
      • AleeD@MT Miner

        I don't know much about hunting. What's a tag?
        It's nice to see you back.

        November 15, 2011 at 1:04 pm |
      • MT Miner

        a "tag" is essentially your permit to hunt an animal, once you shoot an elk for example, you punch your tag with the date and attach it to the carcass. Once filled, it cant be reused, essentially a management tool, some areas they issue a limited number of tags via lottery to limit the harvest, thus managing the herds.

        November 15, 2011 at 1:07 pm |
      • AleeD@MT Miner

        Gotcha. Thanks for the lesson! :D
        Sounds like you're going to busy / having fun for quite a while.

    Hello everyone! How are you all? I think something resembling a warm front is going through my area and confusing everyone.

      Hi! Congrats on the warm front! That's got to be quite a relief. What's new with you?

    Good morning moonshines! Looks like our pet is back, I thought he had given up on us. Dangerous times for favorite daughter is having a Pampered Chef party...must-resist-temptation, or not. :)

      Is Hubs gonna be wearing Pampers? Take pictures for bribery later..:)))

      • JBJingles@RH

        He's going to need the Pampers when he sees how much I bought...oooooh I had a great idea. I'll order the stuff, it will go to #1 daughter, then I'll have her keep it for xmas when we come up! Brilliant.

        We woman tend to stick together and enable (I mean encourage) shopping. Besides it is a genetic defect I inherited from the maternal unit!

      Week 11
      NYJ over Denver
      Dallas over Washington
      Jacksonville over Cleveland (coin toss here)
      NE over KC (for you Monday night nose pickers)

      Man I hope I picked from the right week, I got all twisted and turned around.

  13. AleeD@DustaJerk

    Is your life so miserable that all you can do is summon up a comment that splits hairs over inanely small things? Oh that's right, you're all about small things because you identify with them so well – you bein' hung like a squirrel an'e'ythang.

    Find some joy in life and pay it forward. It doesn't hurt.

    November 15, 2011 at 10:32 am |
    • AleeD@DustaJerk

      I agree. Someone does.

      Seriously?? You are still here harping about 1 comment made weeks ago?? We (the regulars) have been here almost 1 year and I estimate approx. 73k comments, and you are hung up on ONE comment? Yes it was politically incorrect, get over it and move on.

      November 15, 2011 at 12:02 pm |
    • Truth@This just in...

      You forgot to mention his pretend girlfriend, pretend job and pretend friends.

      November 15, 2011 at 12:07 pm |
    • AleeD@DustaJerk

      I'll tell you what, just-in, it doesn't matter what you're packin' in your bloomers because all of us can tell from your comments that what you're really packin' is an empty heart. You are a hard-hearted, mean-spirited person who wouldn't know a positive comment if it bit you. You've latched onto one comment that one person made and have labeled us bigots and negative because it's what you want to see. KUTGW.

      "Until I see people play nice to strangers I will every now and then drop one ..."
      I don't care why you stay, but if you stick to your guns, you'll be gone in no time. If you actually paid any real attention to how we treat strangers, you wouldn't have made such an ignorant statement.

      You're right. There is nothing funny about child or any other kind of abuse.

    HA! It wasn't THAT foggy – neither was I. At 4:20am EST, moonlight was shining thru the skylight at our casa. I opted for cheerful greeting vs. getting persnickety about phase of the moon. ;)

    And a good morning to the empty Klatsch! Looks like people are having trouble waking up this morning?

    I can help with- wait a sec... *phone*

    Hello? Yes... WHAT?! OH HELL NO!

    Bank just intercepted an attempt to use my card to buy clothes online. Visiting a branch just got pushed to the top of the to-do list.

    So how is your day turning out so far?

      Dang! That's a crummy way to wake up. Were they clothes that would fit you? Maybe similar to Evil's minions, you've acquired a secret personal shopper. :D

        I only use your credit card info when I shop online. BTW, you're going to see a charge from the Loft on your next statement. Keep in mind that I saved 40% by shopping during their Friends and Family event.

      That same thing happened to me some months back. I have to say that AMEX was great about it. Got me a new card in 48 hours and I never even felt a bump in the road. Best of luck with this.

    4. Queen DNP...14-10...Guess she didn't like the color of the uniforms or the mascots.

    November 15, 2011 at 9:25 am |
    • Queen of Everything@Richard

      If you are going by the percentage of correct predictions then the standings would be as follows:
      Sir Biddle: 66%
      Truth: 61%
      Jerv: 60%
      Richard: 59%
      Little ol' me: 58%
      Mascots and team colors seem to be working just fine!
