I don'at have a problem with the Indian names or the chants for sport's teams.

RebelliousRenee said...

Gail and Maggie certainly look relaxed.
Love the live Oaks that are in the shot. Nothing says "the South" like those trees and a river.

Enjoy your clean camp!

Carol said...

that's a cypress tree, not an oak in the background.

Carol said...

maybe another tree inbetween. i havent stayed at the camp since my stroke scared to. feel safer at home not as many hazzaadz. we go evwey morning to wlk down the road for exercise. I get my house cleaned one week and he camp the nxt week.

Carol said...

Gail jusf left for the day and Maggie is moaning/crying.

Carol said...

Msybe they can fix the washington Redskin's parolem by making john Boehner their new mascot. He ususally has red sjin and is often on the warpath.

Carol said...

Renee, I'm kinda dissappointed that your team isn't playing tonight.

Carol said...

Carol said...

Last night I broke
My internet connection for my lzapfop ypent hours on the phone with Verizon

RebelliousRenee said...

Carol...
the Red Sox won't be playing tonight either. The ALCS starts tomorrow night, Saturday, between the RSox and the Tigers.

Rick and I are going to a local show with his brother and girlfriend tomorrow. Then we're going out for drinks afterwards.... we might be lucky to catch the very end of the game. But it's only the first one.... they'll be more.

RebelliousRenee said...

It looked like there was moss from a live oak hanging over the camp porch in the picture. The cypress looks like an interesting tree. I probably saw some when I visited New Orleans... but I don't remember.

Carol said...

It's rough to go woithout my. Internet.y new device may be here next
Week. Amost ready to
Try to find
Another way to get connected. Ie wifi. Anyone have a suggestion. iPhone Internet is a pain.

Carol said...

Renee , we put on our gloves and come out fighting. Hope Brees
Got his
Rest. Then I'll pull for your Socks.

Chloe Falls said...

Carol,
I think you said you have AT&T phone service (I may remember wrong). If you are looking to bring in WIFI, they have a package for phone and internet that is reasonable. Our WIFI is really fast (although the very fastest hasn't reached our area yet). You sometimes hear bad things about AT&T, but we've been with their WIFI a long time (that and our home phone) and like it. They provide the router, and it connects everything that comes into the house. Multiple computers, Smart TVs and Blue Ray boxes, etc.

Cheaper than the little attachment to hook up my computer to the internet when I'm away from home. I'm getting rid that thing, since most things hook up to cellular now.

jan said...

I am back home.

Business stuff ok. Reunion with girl friends from early and late childhood was the best. So glad reunion was last. Great people. Heard stories I had not heard before. So great to spend time with people who knew my parents and brother and sister. It was just too short.

jan said...

Great picture Carol.

Carol said...

Chloe

I only have AT&T IPhone. No Land line here had trouble with att all the time . What do I do when I go to the camp? Wish my little Verizon thingy would
Provise a
Type of wifi.

Chloe Falls said...

Hey, Carol. I get it now. I wasn't thinking.

Ok... back to the bright side of things. If you have the same Verizon thing as me, it is WIFI! You can have multiple computers, etc. around it and they all work wire-lessly using it. This electronic age just never lets us down!

Are you getting all the same rain we're getting here? It's been almost 20 years (about the time we first move here) since I've seen this much rain. Bring it on, I say. I love the rain!

Hope you don't flood at your camp though. Please keep us informed.

ps I'm expecting a wet winter, but I may be wrong.




RebelliousRenee said...

Jan....
welcome back! Glad you had a great time with your girlfriends. But... yeah, one night is too short for people you've known for a long time. Hope you get to make it to the next reunion.

RebelliousRenee said...

Carol...
I'll say it one more time....

GO PATRIOTS!!! :)

still think your Saint are gonna win though...

Carol said...

Renee. Sorry about the Red dock last night.

Carol said...

Chloe. What so you use ro connect
To the Net when you are on the road?

Chloe Falls said...

Hey, Caro

It depends on what I'm using when I'm in the car. As you know, the Iphone is cellular... so no problem.

The new ipad's can also be connected by cellular now for a relatively low monthly price. But you use them to connect to free WIFI at McDonald's, Chik fil-a or anywhere else that provides WIFI (the same way any laptop connects t WIFI these days). It's a great laptop to travel with.

With a regular laptop, you need the Verizon thing you have... in the car, unless you're close to free WIFI somewhere.

The Iphone and the Ipad are the cheapest way to have none stop connection. The Ipad, though, has a limit of time you get for the price.

Ha... I have to stay connected! It's like a leash.

jan said...

Poor Ryley is so confused. John left for cloudcroft yesterday at noon and I arrived home at 8 pm last night. We decided it would be best for him to leave Ryley alone for 8 hours rather than taking her with him. Of course we have family who could have looked in on her If I could not get home last night.

John said that all the time I was gone she kept looking for me and was very clingy to him. This morning she is looking all over for John. He gets home at 4 pm today and her little family will be back together.

Carol said...

Chloe. I called Verizon. They call tat connection A mifi jet pack itt will provide Wifi for several devices I am going to think about getting one.

Carol said...

Renee. I hate to say it big you may ja r another sporys disappointment today. Most od the Foc guys atr picking the Saints to
Win. Today

Chloe Falls said...

Yes, Carol. That's what it's called the MIFI jet pack (I mistakenly call it my connection thing). It's a little pricey, but serves the purpose and is very fast (at least where I am).

It comes in very handy when we lose service out here and I can take it anywhere. It would probably serve all your needs.

If you decide to try it, make sure you ask them how long you have to change your mind. It used to always be 30 days, but now it's sometimes only a couple of weeks.

Carol said...

May have to taty words Renee

Carol said...

Congrats renne. Dang it. I Qaeda having a bad feeling.

Carol said...

I wss having a bad feeling not ehat t i typed Auto. Correct went nuts there. My phone won't let me type at times. Isy need a new one.

Carol said...

Renee hope you saw that game. Great game for you guys. Rotten for me.

RebelliousRenee said...

Carol....
of course I watched that game. Your Saints are very worthy opponents. I thought it was an exciting game. When your defender caught that interception toward the end, I thought that was the game right there.

I still can't believe the Patriots pulled off a miracle at the end. The other teams in our division lost today... so the Pats extend their 1st place lead.

Sorry you are disappointed. I wish your Saints much luck in their game next week.

Carol said...

Renee. They will be fine next week, they have a bye.

Chloe Falls said...

"My phone won't let me type at times. ... need a new one."

AT&T usually pays you something for your old phone (even old Ipads), Carol. At least here.

Carol said...

Chloe. Is it dangerous having your info on rhe phones when you sell them?

Carol said...

Renee all your teams
Did we'll yesterday. Lucky.

Coreen said...

Forget about worry over what may be in a phone, the privacy train long ago left the station & its not returning... Facebook decided to open it's search field even if you don't want it & now Google intends to utilize
any user's comments to sell for ads...

You must always remember my admonition...let's hear it gang...
Google plan to sell user endorsements

Carol said...

I received my replacement Internet attachment and it was the wrong one. If wouldn't work work my current payment plan. I'll get another one tomorrow. Seldom do these things
Work on rhe first try.

RebelliousRenee said...

Coreen... I sent you an email about the scarves... hope you get it.

Admonition?... oh yeah.... you mean the one about the money... yup.

Carol... sometimes sports fans get lucky and sometimes they don't. It's the nature of the beast. Gotta take those types of wins and relish them when they happen.

Chloe Falls said...

"the privacy train long ago left the station & its not returning"

LOL!!
Coreen is right, Carol!
You can check that they clear all the info. off your phone when you turn it in. There's a restore button on the phone (although I personally have never used it). The tech at AT&T (or wherever) can restore to new... as a matter of fact, I think they will automatically clear the phone. But set you mind at ease and make sure.

Before they clear it though, they will ask you if you want all your contacts, music... anything transferred over to your new phone, which they will gladly (and magically) do for you if you want them to.

I worry about the same thing with old computers. I have much more important private information on my laptop than I do my phone.

We have an old Ipad that they were going to credit us $300 for a while back. If they still will, then we're going to trade it in for a new one. The price fluctuates.

Chloe Falls said...

If you have an AT&T outlet near by, Carol... it's a lot easier to go in and talk to them. They may give you more by going in. Like I said... prices seem to fluctuate. It's easier to get things straight from the horses mouth (if possible).

Chloe Falls said...

... thanks for the 'lack of privacy' reminder, Coreen. It's a new world.

Carol said...

I got my seond Internet thingy today and the people on rhe phone at Veriaon douldn't help me so rhey sent me to the verizon Store in town to get it wet up. IT IS ON OF THOSE MIFI JET PACK THINIEWS. i feuess I dsan now use ir to hook up my netfliX for my smart tv. NOw I need a way to call you Chloe do9r help. I could email you my phone number ane when you hear rhis crazy, not qyuite Cajun, you'll know it's me. communiczating by typing is really tough. NOt rehabing my typing very well..

Carol said...

did you get my email chloe?

Carol said...

I need info chloe and you are the most tedh sacay pereon I know

Carol said...

Carol said...

Maybe I should say it competent person I know.

Carol said...

Carol said...

Ad you can See, I Still can't type.

Carol said...

I mht not evrm have your current email chloe.

Carol said...

What I need to l ow is will. My smart tV pick up the wifi from this thingie?

Chloe Falls said...

Carol, Your typing is just fine... I can understand everything you're saying. I haven't checked my email yet, but it's still chloe@doubt.com.

I've looked up some sites to get you started. I really stumble through these setups myself, and have no ability as a support technician. I have a different equipment than you and so would have nothing to look at to see what you were seeing. Even my wifi (mifi) is probably different as mine is a couple of years or so older -- I use AT&T wireless for Netflix and my TV anyway. I just don't have the expertise to help set up your equipment. But I'm going to help any way I can.
... cont'd. on next comment (so it won't reject me for being too long)

Chloe Falls said...

always struggle through these setups, Carol... but eventually we all get it done... one step at a time (baby steps!).
-- 1. Set up your wifi device so your computer detects it first (instructions will be included with it... I've had mine for a couple of years or so, and don't remember what I had to originally do to set it up).
-- 2. Once that that's done, go to your smart TV 'initial set-up (at least that's what my Sharp TV has). Internet, Wireless (and at this point it should ask for your security code (which is the password for your new WIFI device. I connect my TV through AT&T so it's different. (Your TV will be different than mine though, so you will probably have to call their tech support at customer service for your TV (number is probably on your paper work) and they will help you through the steps (no charge).

This stuff will get you started. I have to feed and bathe Emma and then I'm going to come back and help you in any way I can.

Chloe Falls said...

I'll check my email too.

Carol said...

You would probably Be more helpful than you realize

Carol said...

Thanks for calling Chloe, vedy nice talking to you. YOu had lots of good ideas. And no accent, not that that would be a problem.

Carol said...

Coreen, Chloe said that I don't have an accent.

Coreen said...

Gee Carol, why am I not surprised!unless by some miracle you lost your accent, trust me, you have one...only can imagine that Chloe was being really nice or maybe just has been hanging around Texans too long!!...

Carol said...

I definitely don't have a Texas accent. I habe a tendency to pick up accents of people
I'm around for awhile if
They have an accent

Carol said...

U Internet thingie is working but there is a learning
Curve.

jan said...

Carol, I never thought you had an accent, but you did not sound like others in LA.

jan said...

Carol, so happy your technology is coming along.

Chloe, a big thank you from me.

jan said...

One of the reasons I keep my few hours with the univ. is so I can get help with my computer and telephone from the great IT folks there. I have a GD with a degree in comp science and that is what she does, but I don't like to bother her. She does not get on her computer at night. She leaves it all behind at work. She comes home to 2 little ones.

Carol said...

chloe, I did watdh a couple of Netfklix on my TV. I called the NEtflix people and rhey gave me the number to my TV people. The Tv people helped me set it up but werent sure if it would work beause the download speed was too slow. I did get it to work though. yes, it is better than watdhing on the computer. I ouldn't make it though much of Breaking Bad. It was kinda evil.

Chloe Falls said...

Great to hear you got 'er done,Carol!

Now you need to call AT&T and tell them your connection is too slow. They may be able to speed it up somehow.

I was afraid that Breaking Bad may be too violent for you. I fast-forward through parts that I find stressful. It's easy on Netflix because it lets you peek at the frames you're fast-forwarding through.

I am really in to it at this point but it took several episodes to warm up to it. It's such good acting and done so smartly... BUT, if it's a downer for you, then you definitely don't need it.

Wow, Carol. You can do anything!

Chloe Falls said...

Ha about the accents, Coreen.

The true Texas accent is Matthew McConaughey, but you just don't hear it anymore. More people from Northern and NE states or the West now, so you just don't detect many accents anymore. (I just sound like any other Yankee, except I talk very fast)

Carol said...

It bothered
R that they had to kill those two guys right at the start

Chloe Falls said...

You are so lucky to have IT people to consult at work, Jan. It's almost impossible to keep up... but great fun.

Chloe Falls said...

Carol, You're right. Text to Speech is an app. The guy at Sprint downloaded it when I was looking (apparently).

Here's one link with a video explaining how: How to Convert Voice to Text on an iPhone

I must have the Vlingo.
I opened SIRI to ask it to dial a number before, but haven't tried to look at it for dictation.

Chloe Falls said...

Here's a 'How to' on SURI.

How to Convert Voice to Text on an iPhone

'How to' is always a good way to search for explanations.

I always learn so much when I'm interacting with you.

Chloe Falls said...

ZocDoc
This is the doctor site that impressed me so much... although I realize you probably already have an excellent network of doctors you have access to. This worked for me, because it finds docs very close by, and lets you fill out necessary paperwork 'before' going in. Plus it takes insurance info. so they can authorize everything before you get there. They even remind you about the appointment the day before.

Chloe Falls said...

... the important part: you needn't talk to anyone to get everything lined up. Just show up the day of the appt.

Carol said...

Carol, Here's two sites that explain enlargement. One is for the net, which you may already know: turn sideways and enlarge by running forefinger and thumb over screen to enlarge.

The other is for basic print. The keyboard is fixed to the screen size.

I hate typing on the Iphone, although reading on it is fine. That's why I need an IPad or laptop with me.

Chloe Falls said...

I've heard the new IPhone has changed. I'm supposed to do the new update on mine, but have been putting it off. Heard people say they don't like it.

Carol said...

CHLOE TH NEW IPHONE IS CRAZY

Carol said...

SORRY I GOT IT

Carol said...

iPad is cooperating

Carol said...

It will be easier to carry around than laptop.

jan said...

Everyone I know who has an ipad loves it. Good for you carol.

I say, Whatever works.

Sorry about the iphone. Can you take it back?

Carol said...

JN I am making some slow progress and it keep me occupied. It also stresses me

Carol said...

Still overwhelmed with this new technology

Carol said...

Don't understand all the problems unless its use error.

Chloe Falls said...

I always get stressed with new technology, Carol.

Jan's right though, you have at least 2 weeks to return it... maybe 30 days.

That easy-to-carry-around portability is the only reason I ever carry around the IPad. That, and because it connects to the internet anywhere... WIFI or not.

The IPhone was easy to learn for me because I had already been using an IPod and the program is the same, except the phone was added.

I'm sorry for your frustration, too. It just takes repetition and lots of time. It's good for the brain too. If I didn't have these challenges, mine would be fried.

jan said...

Chloe, Hmmm, would like to take credit for telling Carol she can return in 2 wks, but alas it was not me.

Carol, good for you for keeping on trying to get some that works for you and getting it to work.

Our technology is important. It keeps us in contact with those we care about and the larger world.

Carol said...

I'm ready to throw all my technology in the swimming pool

Chloe Falls said...

Carol, I'm wondering if this might be the Meteor Shower you going to see:
Northern Taurids Active from October 19th to December 10th 2013
This shower is much like the Southern Taurids, just active a bit later in the year. When the two showers are active simultaneously in late October and early November, there is sometimes an notable increase in the fireball activity. There seems to be a seven year periodicity with these fireballs. 2008 was the last remarkable year. Perhaps 2015 will be the next?

Chloe, it was the orianid shower. moon was too bright tonight. One of the friends I went with talked me into keeping my new phone. She said once I get used to it I would love it. It's a samsung Galaxy S4 she taught me a few things about it. To keep it I needed to be able to use the phne get email and access my blog. I think I finally mastered all three tasks.

Nice cold front came through 50 . I'm cold. Had a chill all day.

jan said...

Carol, the Samsung galaxy note II is what we have. You are doing better than me. I have one e-mail address and had the other one and then lost it. My grandson has helped me a lot. The one thing I have down are picture taking - my favorite thing. It takes great pictures. All my balloon pics were taken on my phone.It takes better pics than my camera.

Chloe Falls said...

Carol! I didn't quite realize what phone you have (I use an IPhone... I must have been confusing you, if anything).

Told Glen you have a samsung Galaxy S4 and he said that's a really nice phone. One of the guys that works for us has it and loves it. I think it does 'more' than the Iphone. Very glad you got some help. All you ever have to do is ask around, talk to people and they are so happy to help.

... you don't have to carry the whole load on your shoulders anymore.

jan said...

We have finally turned on our furnace. Our temps in the house were 61-65 in the house. It is ok for me but John needed some heat. We always turn our heat off in winter and sleep under a down comforter.

Chloe Falls said...

I thought of you in the cold last night. It was 45 here (and now it will warm right back up), but I was pretty sure it would bother you (I know it does me).

Good thing that you got out and about though.

Chloe Falls said...

Hi, Jan. I'm in a room reading 66 right now, and haven't turned on the heat yet. 'Course I'm bundled (boots and all) and drinking hot coffee. Probably will fire it up in a minute or two.

Coreen said...

Renee, congratulations to you, rick & the red sox nation, your team delivered a terrific victory...a grand slam! give me a break!!!

and the Denis Leary ad is well, priceless, accents & all!!...

Coreen said...

Carol, you switched! no more iphony for you...but you now have added an ipad?...

Hope the learning curve goes quickly, you know I have little patience with gadgets (actually just went through a bunch to just get back on here, it took forever & had to reset password repeatedly & finally add an alternate email address (one I don't ever use, not even sure why I had it, or how to access it)...

Carol said...

I wonder if this signing in issue is a blogger problem.

Carol said...

Looks like your Patriots had a rerun of what happened to LSU last night and the saints last week Renee

Carol said...

I mean tie it up and win with a field goal.

RebelliousRenee said...

Coreen....
thanks! I still can't get over the fact that this Red Sox team will be playing in the World Series.

I hear that the St Louis Cardinals are a really good team also. Should be a good series. And even if my RSox should lose... I've had a blast watching them this season.

Only bad thing is now Rick and I will struggle to stay up late for the next 10 days or so to watch the series. We aren't thrilled with how late the games start and finish here in the East. Oh well.... can't have everything... :)

Which leads to me the Patriots... they win a big one in a nail biter... they lose a big one in a nail biter. I think this team is just so-so this year. We've become spoiled to winning teams. But we'll survive whatever happens. It's gonna be a stunningly beautiful fall day here today.

Chloe Falls said...

Carol, If there's still time, take the phone back today. Extra stress you don't need.

How about a simple phone for calls and text messages... since you now have the IPad to carry around for blogging, mail, etc. It will even most likely fit in your purse.

I will say that the IPhone I have is reasonably simple for what it does, ... but I have heard their new update has been poorly received. So I can't recommend the new IPhone, as I don't know what's changed. The one I have is about a year old.

Chloe Falls said...

Remember Carol, if anything causes you more frustration than pleasure, then you don't need it.

Carol said...

My sitter helped me move back to the camp. I'm hoping it will improve my psyche. My doc did give me a very mild benzo. That helped my innards stop quivering but I still stay fearful. Be become phonic of everything. I need to get to theorist where I don't need these sitters. It way too expensive. I'm wasting all my old age resources. Pray for me.

Carol said...

My doc is going to refer me to a shrink. I hope that works.

Carol said...

She said she was so happy I was doing so well physically that she didn't realize what Thad has done to me emotionally. She is a neat doc.

jan said...

Carol, your doc sounds like she is sensitive to what you need. Good for her.

jan said...

Renee, congrats on your Red Sox in the World Series. John will be watching some of it. I will root for your team.

jan said...

Carol, baby steps.

jan said...

Carol, you have made so much progress. It may not seem like much when you look at yesterday. But so much when you look back in terms of weeks.

Carol said...

I'll e happy when I'm back to normal carol. I can talk and walk and I truly appreciate that but no one understands what's going on in my head

jan said...

Carol, I say "you have made progress" only from where I am sitting here and I see what you write and how you write and what you tell us. Yes, I hear you that only you know what is going on inside you.

Chloe Falls said...

Carol... no one knows what's going on in your head unless you tell them. Your doing that is a giant step forward. Your anxiety is very understandable... what you've been through is huge.

The shrink will be a lot more help than the sitter. It will all move forward from there. I completely understand that terror you're feeling. Just remember it's a feeling and you have the ability to control your feelings with guidance from a professional. Make sure you follow through on that referral... I know you won't regret it.

I'm sure you know that terror is a result of your stroke, and as Jan pointed out... you're healing. Now the shrink will help you deal with the process.

One step at a time. Have FAITH... and you will make it through all of this... and come out the other end in peace.

It's another challenge, Carol. You've had many in your life. You can do it.

Chloe Falls said...

When's your sister coming to get you? I bet she will be a big help too.

Carol said...

Close to thanksgiving. She bought a new condo and has to move in. She is a pro at moving.

RebelliousRenee said...

Carol...
glad you are telling us what you're feeling. I know someone who had a stroke and went through a time of fear. She said it was hard because on the outside it looked like she had fully recovered. A shrink helped her. I really hope it will help you too.

Hang in there.

Chloe Falls said...

Hey, Carol. I'm on my way out the door but I was just thinking. Your insurance may cover the shrink since it's necessary as a result of your stroke. Worth a try... it is part of rehab.

Good your doctor gave you a benzo to keep you calm, but the therapist will probably prescribe something more specific (and that is not addictive). Anxiety, depression (etc.) is chemical and that needs to be balanced. Talking about it and having someone help you think things through and solve problems also helps that balance. You're on the right track.

Re-evaluate!






Chloe Falls said...

... once you feel better, that is.

Carol said...

Hi, Carol.
I haven't started the book, yet. I've just finished going through several seasons of 'Breaking Bad', so haven't been doing much reading. I'll probably start looking through the Dispenza book yet in the next couple of days. It looks like one I'll find interesting.

How are you doing... have you been watching your Netflix at all. I've been thinking about you and hope everything is OK. Will check back in in a few hours.

No on netflix. Won't work on TV here

My favorite books just for entertainment are anything by John Grisham. I love his writing style. He gets right into it.

We are watching the World Series.

Renee, I am rootin for the Sox.

It is really fall here now. the trees are turning colors. I love it when the air is crisp.

We bought some Halloween candy (small bars of snickers, almond joy, twix, etc. We have eaten about 1/3 of it. It was a big bag. I just hope there is enough for neighborhood trick or treaters.

John and I eat pretty healthy most of the time except we both like something sweet after dinner. At this point in our lives, what the He**, Who cares whether we live to be 90.

Hey, Carol. You forgot my most important question. How are you doing?

Has your doc referred someone for you to talk to yet?

If you need to talk about anything, I hope you'll bring it here. If you need to talk in person, just say so any time and I'll call you.

What's happened to you can happen to any of us at any moment. I, very much, relate to you and your experiences. Like I've said before, I learn so much from you. If I can give anything back, then I'm eager to do so.

Love you, Carol.
