I looked into this, wired and wireless. I think both of them require a collar that needs to be charged quite frequently. The wired one shocks as they approach the wire, so if they by chance ran out without getting shocked, they could also get shocked trying to come back in. The wireless shocks if outside the range of the base unit transmitter. They even make GPS ones but it works like a wireless transmitter, so many feet around the central location. If it would let me map an area and not just be circular I would consider that. Until something better comes along, a good fence and gate would keep my dog off the highway.

I lived dangerously yesterday, at the 4th of July celebration I ate 2 fried Oreos. Probably the only Oreos I've had in 15 years. Not to dangerously though, I did turn down the optional confectioners sugar sprinkling.

No.... I didn't test.

Well... DARN! I've been "glutened"!!!

I haven't been exposed to gluten in over a year, perhaps two. I'm VERY careful. Always read ingredients and only eat at restaurants that have a gluten-free menu.

I found two new dairy alternative items and broke the cardinal rule for one with food allergies - only try one new food at a time. Three days ago I ate both of them, not only on one day, but the following day as well. I've been having symptoms for the last two days, and if I follow the usual progression of having gluten, I have another day or two to go with this.

I'll be throwing out the foods and am really bummed. In order to find out which one it was, I'll have to eat them again. But not for a few weeks until my GI tract is healed up and not causing issues.

The one was a cheddar "cheese". And this one actually tasted like sharp cheddar and not American. It's a brand (daiya) I've had before (dairy-free cream cheese) without any problems. So perhaps it's the almond-milk yogurt.

Hope you've rebounded VeeJay.

After some mix ups on my bike trainer program mixing up distances (miles and kilometers) and weights (pounds and kilograms) I may just switch to the metric system on it full time. I go faster and weigh less, can't be a downside to that.

Well, you said "Goofy......"

I just discovered a solution to that problem. I found "Extra Wide" bathroom tissue on Amazon. It's only 1/2 inch wider, but it makes a big difference. It's "Quilted Northern Ultra Plush, 4.5" wide. And (most importantly), it's THREE PLY!!!

Life quote I just read.

"Happiness is not getting everything you want, it's enjoying what you have."

A variation on "Count your blessings"

I think I have an egg sensitivity. There's not much I can eat that actually tastes good. Eggs taste good.

Right now, I'm sort of interested in the idea of doing some yoga. A year ago, I made up a custom routine (because I'm too fat to do the basic routine on my yoga DVDs). Now I just need to make the leap from thought to action.

I took the stairs today.

I took a yoga class once and quit after two sessions because I always came home with a headache and figured that wasn't making me feel as good as yoga promised to make me feel.

I have a niece that's quite into yoga, however, and what I learned from her is that there are many forms of yoga and that the one I tried (without really knowing what yoga was about) was not a good form for me. If you're not already familiar with the varieties of yoga that exist, you might want to see if some are more amenable to your situation than others.

My niece showed me several moves I can do (being far heavier and less limber than many folks edit: me, not her). I've had a hard time lately, though, concentrating enough to make it any part of my routine. But I think that's just me.
