I'd be careful with that cough syrup, Tom, especially if it's codeine based, and it is possible to overdose on such. 


Which brings us to the question of what to do for a cough.  All scientific studies show that cough medicines (usually with codeine or dextromethorphan and/or guafenisin) are any better than placebo in reducing cough.  Personally, I avoid prescribing the codeine based ones due to this reason and their addiction potential.  A spoonful of honey like grandma gave you as a kid, works as well as anything. 


Tom, you're probably coughing less due to the syrup soothing your throat or the sedating side effect from the codeine. 


When I started as a pharmacist, a zillion years ago, you could actually buy this stuff OTC, you just had to sign "the register" and get a four ounce bottle.  Now it has to be sent not only to the pharmacy, but a state register as well, which keeps track of all controlled substances, but must be checked by the prescriber before issuing the prescription to see all your controlled substance prescriptions.

Morning, all.

Sorry to hear Tom's getting worse.  Hopefully a temporary setback.  I plan to do some layout work and cleanup today.

Morning, all.

A rare Sunday off for me.  Football on the slate for the afternoon.  Glad to hear Tom's condition is improving.

I have both types of speakers in locos and I think the sugar cubes sound fine.  I think if you're looking for louder bass, a larger regular speaker may sound better, but at the volumes we should have them at (many locos are way too loud for my taste), they are fine, and MUCH easier to fit in small spaces.

Thanks for the update, Tom.  I hope you and your family get better soon.  It's a real issue here as well, our hospitals are pretty full.  They've cancelled elective surgeries again, as there's no room for the post op patients.   The hospitals are short of staff as well.  Between being full and having staff ill, they don't have enough nursing staff to provide care for the patients.  They already have them working at least one extra shift every 2 weeks, and they are wearing out.  We're having the same problem here at the clinic.  We've had 3 providers (out of 10 total) get this, several of the staff as well.


Again, I hope you and Joyce recover quickly and fully, and that your wife doesn't get sick.

Morning, all.

Happy Turkey Day!  A pretty bad year overall, but still some things to be thankful for.  Like this forum.  Thanks, Jimmy!  Off to the grocery store this morning to pick up our already made dinner, otherwise football and goofing off on tap.

Nice job on the truck, Jaime.  A dusting of snow here this morning.

Morning all.

Glad to see Tom up and around this morning.  Hopefully he and his family members will have a quick recovery.  Here, I'm off for two days.   :D  I think the wife wants some Christmas lights put up today, maybe we'll get the tree out as well.

Morning, all.

Jaime, I think I remember an article years ago where they painted the windows with a metallic blue.  I like the black/grey treatment in Jerry's pic.  Hopefully Tom and his family will improve quickly.  His clinic opens at 0700, I'm glad I don't have to go in that early.  I am, however, preparing for work.  I think this is my sixth Sunday out of the last eight.   >:(

Morning, all


Mike's story reminds me of my next door neighbors.  They lived about 3 houses away from where they are now.  That house was about 2400 sq ft.  After the kids moved out, they bought the one next to me, at 3600 sq ft.  I still don't understand it.  Glad to hear you're going to have layout space, Mike.

Morning, all.

Removed leaves and mowed yesterday in shorts as it was 70 degrees here.  Back to 40s/50s today and next week.  Hopefully the final mowing of the year.  Off to work today.

Morning, all.

Off today.  Supposed to be upper 60s later.  Will probably remove the rest of the leaves that have found their way into all the nooks and crannies around the house.  May save some to use for scenery as well.
