Eddie Van Halen was one of the greatest guitarist of my generation. Thank you for the music!

Eddie stayed at my husband's vacation cabin in New Mexico years ago. He wrote a hilarious comment in the guestbook saying that your cabin is so beautiful, but there are no women out here.

People noticed:

1- Some will stop watching sports
2- Some supports the players walkout in 'strike'
3- Some don't even care.

Unfortunately, it won't happen. Once something happens... that's when political comes to play. Kappernick pretty much started it then one thing after another.

Today I learned...I learned that my husband and I may be in for some difficult times. We are close to getting him a Diagnosis of Visual Snow Syndrome. Well this means he is better in light and well lit areas. Where as I have Meniers Disease and I prefer dark or low light as an bright lights trigger my headaches and nausea. We already have arguments over rooms being to dark and light. Unsure how we will find a way to make this work for us both.

Would you wearing tinted lenses in glasses when in a room that is as bright as he prefers help? Maybe not to the point of sunglasses though unless that much is needed.

Yes, I need UV400 protection sunglasses. I also need stronger reading glasses, but I no longer need distance. Which is weird since I have needed glasses for distance since I was a about 6 years old.
Husband will most likely need a yellowish tint but unsure as of yet. Just hope that we have found out why he struggles with seeing things even though his vision is almost 20 -- 20 :) it will cause a few issues but I think it will also solve issues for him. Just odd how opposite our eyes are

The little town of 500 I grew up in is now ghost town, kinda, last I was there years ago looked to be booming new stores ,school expanded 4 or 5 times a big football stadium not just benches, a cool park, now no stores not even grocery or gas, I asked how many were in school same as when I was there about 500, town sign reads population 600, they did have a medical clinic which we never had, I didn't check but it didn't look abandon, what happened? Did they build this big school expecting growth then tax everybody away? They say it died 3 1/2 years ago that's before covid, one wonders? :hmm: :dunno2:

It's never too late to start all over. I quit my job and started my own business without money. Of course, I was terrified but it's impossible to know for sure whether your idea will be successful or not. I took a loan https://maybeloan.com/payday-loans/ga and was working all day and all night. Currently, my business is growing and I am debt-free.

How about giving the exact amount of each ingredient? Also, do you have any idea how it would turn out using cow's butter? I have no desire to buy almond butter just for this.
