77 (4.26) this morning, 81 (4.5) at bedtime.

Actually some sun this morning but the mountains are still covered with clouds which is probably the weather we'll have here later today or this evening.

@Pat & JT, how odd you both mention commercial meatloaf back to back. By that you mean store bought? Now I'm hungry for meatloaf....but I still have a couple servings of meatballs in the freezer to finish before I make a meatloaf!

I used to love meatloaf. One of the few things my mother used to cook that I liked, but she used a lot of bread crumbs in it to make it soft and this is the one Homel makes and it's more like the one my mother in law used to make...a bit heavy, but I don't have a good recipe for one now. I wish someone would post a good recipe for it.

Hormel (I assume that is who you meant) makes a meatloaf??? Never heard of it. Is it in a tin or in the freezer? I'll have to check it out.

Patdart 10-02-2013 20:45

In the refrigerator section. I buy it now and then. Yes, Hormel. Sorry about that typo.

6.0. Back on the wagon after falling off for a bit due to stressful life events. When will I learn that feeling sick from eating carbs doesn't help? Anyway, my liver was happy to store some of those carbs for me.

4.3 this very wet, cool morning. Winds have lessened but the rain will hamper the clean up from the storm.

Tamagno I have been taking Neurontin 400mg x 3 daily for 6 years for PHN (nerve damage following a severe bout of shingles). This combined with 1 x Endep 50mg at night is the only thing that keeps the pain at bay. If I experience some break through pain (not often) a combined paracetamol and codeine tablet usually does the trick.

It takes a bit of 'fiddling' around with dosages to find the one that is going to work. During the initial stages of treatment I often felt as though I was drunk, balance was off and I suffered from brain fog. Not pleasant but I persevered as the pain was so debilitating that I couldn't function. It took about a month to get the dosage to the right level.

Because I take it for PHN and not epilepsy (for which it is designed) I have to pay private prescription rates, A$40 for 100 caps, instead of A$7.50 the PBS fee, however it is worth every cent.

I'm told that I will be taking this for the rest of my life and believe that this is true because the few times I have tried to lower the dose, wham, the pain is back with a vengeance.

I hope that Neurontin works for you - it may take some time and you may have to take a very large dose but your brain does 'adjust' and the relief can be immense.

I wish you all the best, Freya

Here's the one we like best, but you may have tried it already & took a pass on it. I use Ideal brown sugar substitute in the sauce.

SMACK! (The sound of Pat slapping her forehead). Thanks for the wake up call :)

Although it's a bit late now, I was 116 this morning. I was rushed, so I didn't get a chance to post it earlier.

All of this mountain talk is making me reminisce. The fall is my favorite season and is also my husband's. That was why we decided to get married at the end of September. For our honeymoon, we had to drive somewhere, as my husband's always had a fear of flying. We decided to drive to our honeymoon destination. We picked a honeymoon resort tucked away in the mountains, and timed it so we'd drive through when the leaves were changing. It was magnificent.
