    Morning all:

    Congratulations on the new grandchild Bryan!

    My grandmother's old Victorian mansion that I spent the first nine years of my life in had a huge antique dining room table that you could add a leaf or two to it, it also had a beautiful crystal chandelier above it, plenty of room for a large gathering but I never saw it anywhere near full capacity, maybe somewhere between 1888 and 1920 it was full, but I wasn't around to see it. :laughing:

    If serious, the next physical ask the doc to have them give you your blood type.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: Made my morning read! Hope the rain stop for you.

    Good morning. Found out last night that one of the musicians we see when we go out for dinner and music is a Vietnam Vet. We had a decent chat. His drummer is also a retired Navy Captain. It was a good evening. I had a red snapper with lemon cream sauce, steamed veggies and a rice. Blood sugar was a decent 126 this morning.

    I think Christmas is coming out of the attic today and I told my son I want the snow blower in the garage so I can do some maintenance. Poor Tacoma is once again out in the driveway in the elements.

    If I'm not mistaken, any time bloodwork is submitted by a Doctor, or RN, the results become part of your "chart" or data stored on file. A simple call to your Primary Physician should be all that is required, assuming you've been tested for just about anything serious / consequential to your health...

    That just doesn’t make any sense to me. Like not knowing your middle name. Blood type is the password to your medical history. It’s on every Soldiers dog tags. I think it’s even a consideration in getting a marriage license. :notsure::notsure::notsure:

    A little something every chance we get.
    :pccoffee: Good Morning Porch Pals & Sue! Well, a glorious day to do nothing but watch football, and keep the fire stoked for the wife & doggy! Rained about 1/2", but took all day to do it, except for when I needed to grill the burgers. Very convenient! A rare Detroit Lions game (the best worst team in the NFL!) up first, and decent games for the rest of the day. Weather the same, only backwards with rain coming later. Clean up the fireplace, and do it again!

    Love it when the good Horns show up! No one is admitting that there was a score to settle after last years LOSS to KU at HOME! Started Kansas on their "we're a good team!" streak, it did. Can't believe that Okie State lost, but that was a favor to UT. Usually BC and ND is a good game; but the BC QB is an ND transfer, and a big mouth about it. Might have had something to do with that score. And BC is still filling up hospital rooms if I read correctly.

    We all know it's good, old fashioned 10W-30! :D

    The ND transfer has been in concussion protocol and has a rib thing so didn't play. Entire o-line and some other kids had the flu this week...
    When my Giants take care of the Lions today they'll be headed to Jerry World on Thursday at 8-2 :muscleflexing:

    True. Lake Effect Snow really piles up! May I ask, what application was running that provided the data for the screen shot?
    And for those not familiar, with Upstate NY sometimes it snows sideways, and drifts so badly, you get white-out conditions. Can make for interesting travel. :mudding:

    I know.
    I think the reason is it poss a different test criteria and it’s not done in the normal testing of blood work.
    But, they said and I quote “ we are not allowed to tell you” so I just left it at that. They told me to donate blood..
    i know, Fucked up..

    Well, if you don't want to have your blood drawn the next time you see your primary care physician (you have one right?), you can determine it at home with an at home kit:

    :pccoffee: :wave: sixtys/wannabes/bloodhounds. We finally got our whole house standby generator fully hooked up and operational and, lo and behold, we've used it twice in a week! Last Friday night the power went out overnight and we woke up to the hum of the neighborhood generators. Today, just a few minutes ago, they fired up once again. There are a lot of ash trees in the forests around our area, almost every one of which is dead due to the emerald ash borer. They snap off in the wind, taking power lines down with them. I just checked the outage map and there are a half dozen outages within 10 miles of our house. Crazy stuff.

    Afternoon all:

    Harry, I may have to check out Weather.com more often, Accu weather sure seems to lie a lot! :rolleyes:
    Pretty much the same here, cold and windy, we may be in for an old-fashioned winter if this is an early indicator. :notsure:
