Weekly Off-Topic Thread #270

Guess I'll start one more....#270.  If the use of this lounge keeps sliding down hill I don't really see much sense in keeping WOTT going.

 

W0W we have been losing quite a few of our U-verse folks.....past CL's.  I blame the new set up of the forum.   Where is SPD and has anybody seen any posts from UNI?  Sure hate to see the U-verse community disintegrate.

 

Hope y'all that are left have a super weekend.  We are supposed to get rain.  I'll believe it when I feel and see it.

Hi, hpmsrm! We had a little snow here last night...and it is cold. I just thought I'd pop over here to see what was new, which I can see isn't anything much...not like it used to be. Smiley Sad 

 

I have not seen SPD or Uni around, except for a post Uni made about the cable box. I was wondering the same thing. Smiley Indifferent

 

Have a nice weekend.

I think we're heading down to Arlington the second week of February.  Got some good friends down there we want to visit.   Seemed like a good time of the year to go south for a break.   But then it warmed up here in the Kansas City area.  We had a high of 63 degrees here east of the city.  Now it's nearly 11:30 PM and it is still 59.3.   So I guess we got our January thaw.  Problem was.....nothing to thaw.  Practically no snow so far all winter.  We are now 20 inches of moisture below normal.  The drought continues.....bit time.

It's supposed to be in the upper 70's here in DFW area today and tomorrow.  Too bad I'm home with a sick 4yo now.  Took son to Dr. yesterday and now he has the flu.  Had a rough night last night and had a hard time breathing, but didn't want to take his meds. Finally got him down and wife slept in recliner in his room.

I have not had the flu thank goodness, but did get the Norovirus that is going around.  Bad stuff.  The first 24 hours are the worst, then gradually better as time goes on.  Took about 2 weeks for me to get back to normal.

Not the kind of flu, like oufan's son has been going through but I think that I had the Norovirus that you have had.  In fact, I think that I had two separate bouts.  Yecch!

Well well....check this out: http://vitals.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/01/28/16739631-norovirus-why-washing-your-hands-isnt-enough?lit....  No wonder it seemed to take so long to get rid of.

Re: Weekly Off-Topic Thread #270

We've been very fortunate this winter......so far.  No illness.....at least not the kind caused by bacteria or viruses.  We got our flu shots in early November.

 

It is hard to believe but.....way up here in NW missouri we had a high temperature reading of 74.6 degrees today.   I guess we'd be calling it the January thaw.....if there was anything on the ground TO thaw.  Our rain only amounted to one or two tenths of an inch.

Re: Weekly Off-Topic Thread #270

We are already at 70 here in DFW this morning.  High is supposed to be around 75.  Cold front moving through tonight that is bringing thunderstorms along with it.  

 

Son had a better night sleeping last night and hopefully fever will break today.  Have him on tamiflu but it's been a real "treat" trying to get him to take it.  Luckily it's only every 12 hours and last night mixed it in with fruit punch gatorade and he did a lot better.  I can handle me or my wife being sick as we're adults.  A four year old.  breaks my heart that there really isn't anything I can do.

I'm still around Phil but have been taking somewhat of a hiatus. The kudo competition for referrals was getting to be too much and knew at the onset this change was going to be detrimental to the forum. And I still can't make a post to help a user one-on-one w/o getting walked all over by some long-term members ignoring everything I wrote and referring them to "AT&TCustomerCare". Guess that's life but it sure isn't a good forum life like it used to be. Just my opinion...

 

I'll be making a new thread in the Lounge about the demise of my Sony 60A3000 for optical block problems and Sony's replacement program. Sorry to see this great TV go and know you & SJ also have the same type type Sony set.

 

61 and sunny here. Nice! April type weather but it will be short-lived as winter rolls back in Thurs and daily high temps won't even reach freezing for about the next week. Stay safe for those who may face high winds as these fronts move across the country.

The only time I refer to Customer Care is when it's a billing or customer service related issue.

Myself also, or there already so upset no amount of advice will help and they want immediate results we on the forum can't offer.
