    Hello, everyone.

    Me - Dave in Western New York

    High Temp Today - Will be in the low-mid 90's. We need the rain other parts of the country are getting, just not that much.

    Weekend plans - Nothing special. On Saturday I will take my dad his weekly supplies and have dinner with him at his Assisted Living Facility as usual. Maybe church Sunday morning.

    Favorite color - Green in general, red for a car. Have had cars of other colors, but finally got a beautiful 2011 Hyundai Elantra that is Allure Metallic Red a few weeks ago.

    Have a blessed and fantastic Friday, friends.

    High temp will be in the 100s. Had a few days of 110 in the shade this past week. Ack.

    Church on sabbath; yard work and housework on sunday as usual.

    My favorite color is blue: aqua, turquoise, cobalt, royal, baby, sky, etc. I also love greens and pinks and purple.

    I have been keeping busy outdoors with my horse, and trying to keep cool here in front of a fan.

    Me- Laura in Ohio

    High Temp Today - 101 with a heat index of 109. Tomorrow it's supposed to be 104 with an index of 111.

    Weekend plans - Its my MIL birthday, and were going to visit. She lives in the amish area, and has NO A/C! I'm gonna melt. Also planning on canning more jam and jelly (I will eventually start my own business...hopefully)

    Favorite color - Dark blue. Royal and midnight blue are my fav. My car is such a dark blue that it looks black unless the light is directly on it, and then it sparkles.

    I have not been very frequent here, as 5 weeks ago I pulled something in the neck while doing chin ups. Pregnisone, thereapy, was not improving it the way the dr. thought it should. MRI last week showed a herniated disc. New Dr. in August as I am doing some travel the next 5 weeks. Hopefully will be able to beat this with non surgical solutions.
    Haylen_WebMD_Staff replied to betatoo's response:
    betatoo -

    Sorry to hear about your injury. OUCH.

    Safe travels and positive thoughts for a non-surgical solution!

    davedsel57 replied to betatoo's response:
    Sorry to read about your herniated cervical disc. I have four like that in my neck. I'm sure you can find effective treatments without surgery. Praying for good solutions for you soon.

    Enjoy your travels!

    Beta - my prayers go out to you during your 5 weeks of travel. I'll be praying you won't need surgery. I currently have two new bulging dics they are watching. Good luck with your travels. Deb

    Thanks for all of the good thoughts! I have endured much worse than this after all what is a little tingling and soreness.

    Thanks again!
