  • I'm a “The Logician” (INTP-A) - Not really sure what that means … INTP Personality (“The Logician”) Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning. Yeah, I guess that is how I live (most of the time, unless 'stressed'). I 'try' to forget yesterday because you cannot go back and change or relive it over trying to make it different. I don't worry about tomorrow; because I tend to live my life "10 Seconds @ a Time"; so the only place is to try staying in the present (which is constantly changing by nanoseconds.

    Impromptu run to South Beach (Oregon- not Miami) last night to pick up a trailer. Awoke in a cloud of coastal fog that quickly cleared. We left Ptown about 10pm, nice stop over at the Casino for a few hours and pulled in at the beach about 3am. Up at 8a, home now and bushed. Good trip though.

    I've always tested out as an ESTJ, will to-do the test and see if I've changed plus learn what the new add-on is. Last time I took it was close to 20 years ago.

    Hmmm - ESFJ-A Consul... Very interesting. From thinking to feeling, I'd say age and experience played into that shift...

    Hi Gals,

    Judi – welcome

    Machka – I’m ok generally with snakes – but NOT in my toilet…. I often get up in the night and do not turn on a light, there is enough light from street lights for me to find my way to “do my business”, but if there was any chance of a snake in my toilet – I’d have every light on! Can you flush it away? Just typing this is creeping me out!

    Barbie – glad you are doing better. I like the sporkful pod cast to!

    I’m an ISJF-T

    I love pumpkin, the real thing, so pumpkin bread, ravioli, pumpkin chili, pumpkin cheesecake - but not really keen on pumpkin spice everything! And weirdly enough I do not like pumpkin pie, the texture gets me it’s a bit gloopy for me - there is a pumpkin-pecan pie that is better as the pecans fix the texture for me.

    The typhoon is within 12 hours of landfall in the Philippines. It's not looking good so I'm hoping they're ready and that it won't be a repeat of a few years ago.

    https://edition.cnn.com/2018/09/14/asia/typhoon-mangkhut-philippines-intl/index.html


    "The Philippines is evacuating thousands of people, deploying soldiers and positioning emergency provisions as Super Typhoon Mangkhut threatens more than four million people in the north of the country.

    Mangkhut -- stronger than Hurricane Florence, which is currently lashing the US East Coast -- is expected to make landfall on the Philippines island of Luzon island early on Saturday. Current wind speeds are up to 285 kilometers per hour (180 mph).

    The massive storm, the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane, has prompted alerts across east and southeast Asia. A second storm, Typhoon Barijat, has also hit the region."

    It has made landfall in the Philippines now and they're saying it will still be at "super typhoon" category when it hits Hong Kong now.

    I go to university with a lot of Asian students. In my class of 450 students, 447 of them are Asian, 2 sound Dutch or possibly German, and there's one Canadian-Australian.

    Also, one of my closer coworkers is from Hong Kong, and and another is from the Philippines.

    Took the water aerobics class. The plan for tomorrow is to do Amy Dixon’s Give me Ten DVD.

    Penny – interesting…thanks so much for the info about your city. I always find it so very interesting.

    After exercise stopped at the Salvation Army. I was going to make a donation but the lady asked if I could wait until next week to make it, she doesn’t have people working. There was this one guy who came up saying first that he had a trailer full then when she told him she couldn’t take a trailer full, suddenly he only had two bags and a box. I just told her that I’d wait until next week and she thanked me profusely. I don’t understand it. He kept saying how his MIL died and the landlord wanted the apt. cleaned out. Usually you get apts until the end of the month. Do you mean to tell me that he couldn’t have waited a few days to bring it?

    But score….I got a two piece wool set for 99cents. The skirt doesn’t fit me, I’ll just redonate that. But I like the jacket. For 99 cents, I can live with that price. It’s a nice wool set.

    Okie – what is IR?

    Katla – thank you for your concern. Right now it’s just cloudy out, sometimes the sun peeks out. A bit breezy but not bad. They’re not calling for a lot of rain. We’re pretty far inland, at the foothills of the mountains. We live in Newton. Check the weather channel. The highest the winds (right now) are predicted to get is 29 mph When the rain hits the mountains in TN, it usually breaks up and then reforms around the Winston-Salem area. So many times we don’t even get any rain. But we’ll get some, just not that much. I’m more concerned about DJ

    I’m 64% extroverted (that’s very true), 58% observant (not sure about that one), 75% feeling (that’s true), 67% judging (I would have thought it’d be lower), 71% turbulent. I’m an ESFJ-T

    Natalie – welcome

    Kim: I would love to get your pumpkin chili recipe. Do you share?


    I’m watching the weather channel and seeing the flooding in North Carolina. I hope that Michele and those in her area are safe and well. I just saw people rescuing dogs. It reminded me of the floods in Texas, and all the pets and livestock that were affected there.

    Rori - Thanks SO much for the bone broth recipe! Now if I can find a spot on my crowded counter … !

    Judi in MD - I hope you and all the rest in the east coast are staying safe, warm, and dry. Your fur friends too! I know mine hate the sound of hard rain on the acrylic sun porch roof!

    Karen in VA - your grandson sounds like a really fun boy, even with the issues. I’ve enjoyed all of mine growing up. So far Nick, the one who has autism, is 6, and the last. I have a step Great-granddaughter who just began Kindergarten, but she’s 100 miles away! 😔

    Barbara on S OR Coast - Far fro Trader Joe’s? Heaven help you! One of the dieters’ best friends! Your location on the hills above the coast sounds dreamy, though.

    Barbie from NW WA - have you tried audiobooks? I get two a month from Audible.com, but many libraries have them free! I use them when commuting, on long stretches w/o much scenery on road trips, and I set a ½-hr sleep timer. Sometimes I’m even lazy, and listen during my cup of coffee in the morning, but then I’ve always been a bookworm. I have early wet macular degeneration in my right eye, so it’s easier on them to listen, and I find it very satisfying. I especially like the “Outlander” series by Diana Gabaldon and prefer “Game of Thrones” on audio rather than the tv. (Except I love Peter Dinklage as Tyrion and Ser Jorah Mormont so much that I watch anyway!)

    Michele in NC - I was sad to think of the poor dog. I wonder if they evacuated and left him. If you’re able, and that happens again, there are pet rescue groups who will often come puck this older pets up and find someone to foster them. I know of several in our area.

    Sounds like you have all your preparations well in hand so I do hope things go easy on you.

    Rye - your Kidd Kirby is precious. I know a woman who is INTJ. She’s fascinating - an extremely gifted artist and musician and vegan gourmet cook who is perennially unsure that she’s “doing it right”, even with very professional praise for her work in all those fields. I am her purging opposite, an ENTP. We have great talks!

    Penny in Norway - Wow! I have a couple of good friends who were born above the circle up there. They’ve never mentioned Polar bears when they were growing up. Does it depend on your nearness to the ocean? Oh duh! Of course it does! They eat seals, etc, don’t they?

    Kudos on your better oxygen uptake! You mention being an old gal. I’m 65! Is there hope for me after my gastric bypass, do you think?

    Carol in GA - interesting. My life is totally out there. The other people in my Bariatric Surgery support group we’re astonished that I’d posted my decision on Facebook! I was puzzled as to why anyone wouldn’t!

    I too dislike pumpkin in all other forms than pie! Given that I live breads and cakes I’m surprised at my total shuddering lack of enthusiasm, but there it is.



    Okie Woman - I just loathe Johnson grass. It’s found a safe harbor mixed in with my lavender. I can’t pull it up, because the lavender comes with it, and the lavender can’t quite crowd it out. We’re at a stand-off. Guess it’s pistols at high noon next!

    Machka - Oh my! I had no idea the wind was so strong for Monghkut! That sounds truly terrifying! I hope it won’t be as devastating as they fear!

    Having it head so strongly into Hong King reminds me of the storm scene from a book by the fellow who wrote “Shogun”. I believe it was called “Tai-Pan”. The storm description is pretty terrifying. I believe a lot of his works have many elements on fact in them.

    Grandmallue - Ugh indeed! Hope all is well after the next test.

    JazzyPDX - Your photos make me want to start bellowing “Ih, What a Beautiful Mornin’!” at the top of my lungs, thus ruining said morning completely!

    I’m really beginning to get excited about my surgery. I wish I had a date! Folks who call this “the easy way out” have no idea what adjustments and changes we must ready ourselves for. For most of us in my support group it was/is the last best hope for success after having tried almost literally everything else.

    Whatever sort of Hurricane or typhoon you’re facing in your life, I hope the waters are calmer soon!

    Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes. I spent the day inside and the evening painting my bathroom with the first coat. Getting the washer and dryer this weekend forced me to get this completed before they are delivered. I will post pics of the before and after when it is done and decorated properly again.

    Happy Birthday!!

    There are snake catchers ... people whose job it is to catch and relocate snakes (or who are just good at it) that you ring up.

    In this case, apparently they called a snake catcher, but the snake didn't want to be caught so it zipped up into the S-bend. They had to wait a couple hours for it to come out again, then they called the snake catcher back and he was successful that time.

    I think I might have mentioned this last year, but here in Australia pumpkin is not a sweet thing, it's a vegetable.

    So we have pumpkin ravioli, risotto, chili, soup ... all the savoury things. I never did like pumpkin as a sweet thing but I like it as savoury!

    One of my favourites is to mix pumpkin soup with TastyBite's Jodhpur Yellow Dal, add a bit of chicken and veggies and serve over brown rice. :):)

    Pumpkin I like it. Well, I am not fond of pumpkin pie...but I think baked (like squash), ravioli, soup, cheesecake, & bread are all yummy. I would like to try those savory risotto & lentil/brown rice versions Machka likes. I like pumpkin pie spice for some dishes, but that's not why I like pumpkin.

    Lanette I am enjoying your pictures. I posted similar cherry tomato pictures last year! I love looking at before & after results of dehydrating. I know I'm weird. And the other photo of your beautiful bumpy squash...just yesterday my grandson & I were looking at some pictures of rock weathering & erosion, and he said, "that photo would set off (his sister's) trypophobia". I said, "huh?" & so he pulled up the definition of trypophobia, which is "an aversion to the sight of irregular patterns or clusters of small holes, or bumps". Think lotus seedhead, hornet nest, beehive, loofah, Swiss cheese...

    Trucker My grandson is a funny boy, though a lot of his humor is dark. He is quirky. Yesterday the schools were closed so we had homeschool at my house to avoid distractions. He usually has something to click or little magnets to play with, but we forgot them. He started picking at his fingers. I said you need a fidget toy, don't you? So we found a few things - some large beads on a string, a bleating goat, a box of tinker toys, & some other things. He fidgets and fiddles and squirms and learns all at the same time. It would be hard for me to learn that way, but it works for him.

    Penny OMG those raspberries. So jealous. I can't get berries like that here. Nor rutabagas that don't have wax on them...

    ___________________________

    People in this area went crazy getting ready for the hurricane. Stores ran out of generators, gas cans, bottled water, batteries, etc. I don't think we are going to get hit.

    Barbie so glad you are feeling better, even gladder you know not to overdo! Looks to me like Bernie would rather have your attention than help with the knitting, and might take matters into his own paws by snatching that ball of yarn... ;)
    Machka "sign of spring" Eeek! Glad it wasn't in yours! Copperhead [shudder] Ditto the "hie thee to a doctor" advice, infections in the mouth can poison your whole system. Hoping the super typhoon calms before killing any more people.
    Tracey in Edmonton, belated best birthday wishes, <3 the grandson pics and snowman plan.
    Carol thanks for the https://www.16personalities.com/infp-personality! INFP-T "turbulent" mediator ;) but only 51% N so might verge on ISFP Adventuress uh er... AdventurER ;)
    Janetr You are ROCKIN it gal!
    Lenora your rolling pinewood land sounds lovely, as do the oaks and chestnuts. Fingers Xd.
    Penny climbed 2K feet above the sea? WOW! We live 700 feet above and about a mile from and I'd not consider hiking down because I'd not be able to hike back UP! How do you measure your oxygen uptake? Your "...we get to pretend..." insight is right on target! Ditto, dictionary reading for fun.
    pip you two are gorgeous throughout the years!
    Rye had to Google SWTOR and raid healer. Fascinating!
    Heather thanks for the "Michael Moseley 's TRUST ME I'M A DOCTOR" info. Inspiring and hopeful!
    Katla we're south of Coos Bay, in the hills 5 miles north of Brookings. As close to California as you can get and still be in Oregon... ;)
    NYKaren ditto, 1 slice pie on Tksgiving, and I do love Barbie's apple pumpkin soup, otherwise pfaugh. Pie spice in my sweet potato anythings, YUM!
    Allie bloodwork do-over? yuck! Hoping the re-test shows it was just an oops.
    Lanette That winter squash looks weird but sounds tasty!
    Sharon it's a 3+ hr drive, most on narrow twisting highway 199, to TJ's but I make it almost every other month... ;) One of my dear friends had WLS and there is nothing "easy way out" about it. Good on you for your commitment, she said it was THE most important part.

    Welcome Julie in MD, and NatalieW12!

    Penny How do you measure your oxygen uptake?
    Barbara - I've got a GPS-heartrate device (a Garmin Forerunner 235) which does all that for me. It calculates my oxygen uptake based on how my heartrate changes moment to moment when I exercise. I'm sure it doesn't give as accurate results as running hooked up to a face mask and measurement equipment, but running with just a watch sure is easier!

    Anybody else use a Garmin device and log via Garmin Connect?
