    Having spent months in a wheelchair, I totally agree! Also, I dislike those towel dispensers that require two hands to pull on it. What about people who need to use one hand on a cane or walker, or have one disabled for some reason? I really do appreciate the motion detector sensors on those, although it is good to have one manual one just for backup.

    Oh, so true, if you want to eat food while it’s hot! At Thanksgiving, I did a fairly good job of organizing. I decided to serve buffet-style, so set out the serving dishes (and utensils) where I wanted to have them placed. Put a sticky note with the name of the dish on the table at that spot. Then when everyone helped to get things on the table, they could easily find the place to put it (and put it in, if need be). The buffet (folding) table was in one end of the kitchen, on the way to the dining room, so fairly convenient, without being in the way. Just wished there wasn’t an ice storm moving in that afternoon, so we could have enjoyed more time together after the meal.

    When I designed our house, I put a long shelf in there. I hang shirts, and pants over a hanger below, and there are boxes above. (One for each family member.) For some of us, that IS our closet. (I even moved a chest of drawers in there for me.) We either dress in there, or grab our clothes to dress in the bathroom. Works great except for bedding & towels, those tend to pile up on the dryer (I do fold), until I get around to taking those to the appropriate locations.

    Could have happened to me, almost. I’ve got muscle weakness (myopathy), but have man-sized hands. Even though I don’t bowl often, I finally got a used ball and had it drilled to fit my hand. Otherwise, either my fingers got stuck in the holes, or the ball was too heavy for me to throw.

    All sorts of choices when it comes to Oreos now. Not just double stuff or regular. Golden, Lemon, seasonal flavors, thin, etc.

    I much prefer the paper versions, but the electronic versions will probably take less space if I’m traveling. Plus, I accidentally got a library paper book wet while on a recent vacation, so had to buy a replacement. For every day, I much prefer the paper variety, but if I can borrow (or buy for less than $5) I would consider it for those times I can’t transport much.

    My husband’s name is so common, he wanted uncommon names for our sons. We thought they were unusual at the time, but about 10 years after they were born, their names became popular. (One in the top 20, the other in the top 5.) Still, since they’re older than most kids that share their names, it hasn’t proven to be an issue yet.
    I do recommend not having a strange spelling for a common name, or a name so odd that no one can pronounce it by just looking at it. Also, not an extremely long name, especially if the surname is long. However, if one has an extremely common last name, it might be best to have a rarely used name for the first name.

    I have to go to my mental “happy place” any time I’m undergoing any medical treatment (even getting a shot!) or I’ll faint. Of course, I’ve also learned I need to lie down during it, but I’ve found out if I dwell on what’s happening, I could still faint as soon as I sit up.
    I don’t think anyone should stay in their “happy place” all of the time, and not deal with reality. But I think occasional visits are a healthy thing to do.

    Thanks for the explanation! I’d always wondered about how the term originated. Makes sense. My brother is the only combat vet that I know well, and he was a medevac helicopter pilot in Nam, so didn’t have quite the same situation as foot soldiers.

    I usually make BBQ beef brisket. If I have a lot of leftovers, I put them in the freezer. Wait a few weeks, and then when we want a quick meal, heat them up. Thank God for freezers!
