Our Pets! / The unusual pets
« Last post by littleone on Today at 12:57:19 PM »
We met up with my wife's friend recently, and she brought a hedgehog! I've heard that it's also possible to keep Fennec foxes at home. Have you ever wanted to get the more unusual animals as pets?

Staying Healthy As We Age! / Re: Slower Metabolism
« Last post by littleone on Today at 12:46:18 PM »
One thing I don't appreciate about getting older is a slower metabolism. What happened to the days when I could stuff my face and nothing would happen on the scale?
Is it good for me that I can't relate? I gain weight easily unless I watch the things I eat. I'm especially struggling now since I'm not as strong as before, limiting my exercises.
How do you handle the junk food and all the bad but delicious stuff these days?

Medical/Health Issues?? / Re: Shoulder pain
« Last post by littleone on Today at 11:06:42 AM »
How about going to a chiropractor to realign the joint or the inflamed part? You could also see a physical therapist who is a chiropractor at the same time so you won't spend money on two treatments.
Don't chiropractors work on the spine? I don't think they can help with my shoulder pain.

Anyway, I ended up going to a therapist three days ago. He suggested that I went for the treatment at least twice a week. I had a session with an ultrasound machine and another with electric therapy. I don't feel much better yet at this point, but I'll try going in a few times to see how it works.

Medical/Health Issues?? / Re: Reading Glasses or Contact Lenses
« Last post by littleone on Today at 10:53:36 AM »
I've learned that there are corrective contact lenses wherein the sights will be corrected overnight or so. I'm not sure how it works or how successful these types of contact lenses, but it sounds too good to be true for me. I will have to research more about it and see how many have successfully done this without any side effects.
Well, I just did a bit of research and found out that orthokeratology - the fitting of specially designed glass permeable contact lenses that are worn overnight - reshape the front surface of the cornea while you are sleep, enabling you to see clearly the next morning. This sounds like a workable method.
Thanks for the interesting info. Are you planning to give it a try? The way the lenses instantly improve our sights in a night seems too good to be true. With our age, I'm not sure if the risks are worth taking.

Every Day Conversations / Re: Favorite music genre?
« Last post by cherie on Today at 09:45:56 AM »
Sorry to disappoint you cherie because the "Yesterday" movie is only based on the songs of the Beatles and not about the Beatles' story. The main character did sing a lot of the Beatles songs so it reminded me of those old classics.
Well, I'm not disappointed at all Olive but even more eager to watch the movie. Everything about The Beatles and a lot of the popular global bands is that there was always something unique about them, apart from just music. Does anyone here love rock as well?

Every Day Conversations / Re: Curious.....how do you define "Success"?
« Last post by cherie on Today at 08:52:14 AM »
To me, success is more than just contentment; I want to be able to do the basic things with much ease. Money isn't everything but is one way of achieving success and there can't be any success if anyone can't relate well with other people.

One word for me, contentment. Being content with what I have and still enjoy life with what I have is my definition of success. Sometimes we want to get some things that others have that we miss the good things that we already have.
