The Good Humor ice cream truck! They still
sell some of the products in the store, but it is nowhere near as good.  The vanilla ice cream bars covered with toasted almonds!  The half and half popsicles with flavors like rasberry and lime that were SO fruity!  The Good Humor man in his white outfit!  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!  It was great!
The ice cream truck
The Mister Softee ice cream truck came every evening. You could hear his bell dinging wayyyy before he got to our street. On special occasions (i.e., daddy's payday) we were allowed to go a sundae or milkshake or rootbeer float. I read in the paper just the other day that the man who started Mister Softee recently died.
We saw an ice cream truck the other day (sm)
and my daughter was so excited. But I told her I doubt it if it would come up where we live because there is too much of a spread between houses. We saw it going through a housing development. Which makes sense, but was a disappointment for my daughter (and me!!!!). I remember playing outside and hearing the music way in the distance. I would run to get dimes from my Mom or Dad. That is a VERY pleasant memory. Thanks to OP for starting this topic.
We have an ice cream truck come through
our neighborhood every day. They have all the good stuff from the good ol' days!
Don't use cream of,,,,,,,
Instead of creamy mushroom soup, try the Golden Mushroom soup.  I think that is what it is called.  It is the dark mushroom soup.  Gives a sauce with more depth and flavor.  Anymore, I never use the cream of,,,,, alway use the goldren.
I would recommend Oil of Olay. My mom uses it and it has done wonders for her skin. She uses the serum and night cream.
progesterone cream!!!!!!
I liked the progesterone cream, only
read a warning California--(by the way, why do they get to have more warning labels than anywhere else--just noticed that) where they listed something in progesterone creams that is a carcinogen, but please check that out. I was using it and stopped because of that, but I thought the cream was working great on all my symptoms.

then I switched to the wild yam, which you can buy at any health food store, and it works a little differently. you can find all the info on the net (way too long here, sorry).

I hardly have hot/cold flashes anymore. I use a combination of taking 1 Vitex (chasteberry) and 1 to 2 evening oil of primrose each day. was also taking Don Quai, but stopped for a break because it is recommended.

something to keep in mind as well I read the hot/cold flashes and nightsweats are USUSALLY temporary, like mostly just in the beginning and will most likely go away, or at least diminish.

Suzanne Somers has some great info on this, if you purchase her book, which is probably a good investment as she has thoroughly investigated the subject. She is almost 60, and claims even to get a regular period. even tells you how you can lose weight. she is amazing, only I just do not have the kind of money for her products. I listen and get bits of information, then have to put together things I can afford, haha.

do you have people you can ask at the health food store you go to?

I am NOT sure how this all works with having had a TAH/BSO.

wish you the best...
Bono and vanilla ice cream.
He can wish for me and Guiness and we'd be set.   
Yes, but only if tells me to sleep all day or eat ice cream.
or the denture cream, walker AND sm
hearing aid! Good grief!
I'm the cream of the crop, I rise to the top!!
Okay interested parties!  I'm experiencing some turbulence, but I think I'll be alright.  HE has no where to go.  No one wants to help him out.  He is trying to move back to his hometown, but even his family has turned him away.  It's not a nice feeling to have no one to fall back on.  He was soooo confident that he'd have a place to live.  He is really upset right now because he says I didn't try and I am going to be really happy now without him.  Ummmm, yes.   That's what the plan is.  He says I didn't try to save the marriage.  Pfffft!  That's all I've done.  It's difficult to be nice to someone who is so terrible to be around.  I have done all I can do.  My sympathy for him is running very very thin, just like my patience.  I am going to swallow my pride and beg for help from everyone.  I'm networking.  That's all I can do.  I am from Illinois so I if anyone out there has information to give I'd appreciate it.  He's trying to drag me down, but I won't let him.  I've come too far to go back now.  Be proud of me, it's okay, I won't disappoint.  I can't....
Noritate cream which is once a day application...
I take Tetracycline 500 mg twice a week and was put on a cream that had to be applied twice a day. That was impossible for me!! So, my family doctor told me about a cream, Noritate which is applied once a day. The tetracycline is good for breakouts, but I don't have to take it every day. The cream can be put on once a day, at night. So this works out pretty well for me. Good luck!!
correct on cream it is Vanicream.

Milk, Cream and Alcohol...
Oh, that's too funny with the doc prescribing a cycle of beer! There's an old blues song with the lyrics "Your doctor put you on milk, cream and alcohol." Maybe it's the same doc!
Maybe a taco bar with an ice cream sundae bar for dessert? nm
Guess it depends on how porous his skin is-- try cold cream maybe? - sm
My kids have done all sorts of stuff, usually the face cleans up except for red in my experience...fades over a week or so. But cold cream is good for make up so maybe it will work, if you don't have any handy maybe a thick moisturizer? Obviously the hands are not an issue since they won't be in the picture, you can always try a liquid make-up if it doesn't come off and if the make up does not look weird. Good luck.....you can always keep him home or arrange for him to do the make-up picture for kids who are sick...they always have a make up picture day...find out when it is and just do it then.
Again, jealous heads rearing its ugly head. When I said ice cream, sm
I meant I COULD NOT AFFORD TO BUY SQUAT for them. Give me a break. I am not going to Angel Ministries or anything else. And, you have NO idea how much I actually paid for my SUV. There are mini vans out there that take a lot more gas than my SUV!
try OTC cortisone anti-itch or Gold Bond cream first?
BBQ steak, grilled veggies, baked potatoes, watermelon, and ice cream! nm
okay, so far I want to eat dinner at your house. I'll bring hard ice cream for cobbler.nm
Mary Kay Extra-emolient night cream will work wonders
Just apply it before you go to sleep.


You can serve chili sauce or a chutney spread on a bar of soft cream cheese to put on
Grilled steak with salsa, broccoli and baked potatoes with sour cream -- One of my favs!
Chocolate with a chocolate ganache frosting and some extra whipped cream. nm
good job! watch out for the truck

being in your name because whatever he does will come back on you so if he crashes and hurts someone, they can come after you.  my x took all the keys so I had another set made and they didn't work so I reported it stolen and let the cops get it from him. (the car was only in my name)  plus it adds to your paper trail that you're going to need to keep yourself protected. 

don't you feel better all ready!

good luck to you!! Do something about that truck..you are responsible for any damages unless you
it taken without permission (different than stolen).
Truck driving
My friend and her husband drove as a "team" before he passed away.  She said it isn't as easy as it looks-- especially if you are a woman.  She said she had to back the trailers into the loading docks and all the "macho men" would just stand there and stare at her-- apparently they are too "manly" to have their jobs taken by women.  Anyway, she said the driving part was fun, but the company monitors you every second via some kind of tracking device and it isn't like I thought-- that you could stop in various parts of the country, etc.  There is a lot of technical stuff you have to know about the truck, maintenance, etc., as well.  She said she wouldn't do it again.
truck type
Don't have direct experience but my husband trucks and am familiar with the concepts. This is an intriguing scenario so hope you don't mind if I speculate a bit.

A few questions for you. By partnership, do you mean you intend to drive, as in split equal driving hours with him? What kinds of distances are involved...state/regional or interstate? You talking lap top type on internet based platform or what (i.e., method of report transmission)?

Certainly, RV is not the same as OTR. I think your main issue would be internet access while in motion. You want to type PT or drive PT or what?
Did you just fall off the turnip truck?
Of course it's a scam. Grow up.
Leased a truck for four years. At the
end of that time, purchased the truck because we had put so many miles on it, and they financed for another FIVE years to keep the payments about the same. Won't try that again!!!!!!!!!!!!
I call it Mack Truck Flu.
Feels like  you've been run over with a Mack truck! Glad U are feeling almost within normal limits.
Sorry but truck driving is going south also
Also had hubby as truck driver, as well as done team driving --the rates there are going down as many are coming over the borders and able to drive for less.  So that profession has dropped 50% as well or at least held its own over the past ten years which is not a progression at all.  Even owner-operators are seeing a decline.  So it is hitting everywhere. 
Back the turnip truck up!
You are working full-time with demands of 1,200 lines a day and only making $16,000.00 a year.  You'd better find another job.  What part of the Earth do you live?  My goodness, clerks make more than that.  You may want to try becoming a file clerk as you'd probably make more and it certainly would be less stressful!  Take care!
My husband used to drive a truck and

back in 1970s, he made $1 a mile and above. He got out when the rates went down, when the government starting forcing truckers to drive only so many miles a day, and when the companies wanted you to drive over and above the so-called allowable mileage and if you got caught, YOU paid, not the company. Then there was the cross-country in 3 days deal....then, 'Hm-m-m, he could do it in 3 days, let's push a little harder to see if he can cut his time down more."

Bet you're hubby never makes $1 a mile or above now, especially with the high fuel costs and maintenance of the truck unless he is Haz-Mat or in a specialized field.

Oh, BTW, they are bringing back the railroads because "it's too expensive to truck the goods anymore."  It's the old "dange" if you do, and "dange" if you don't type of deal.

Oh, wait! Could this be just like transcription?

Yeah, must have fallen off the turnip truck.

After paying on my truck and house for a year I can
refinance and get an interest rate that is close to someone who has never filed bankruptcy before.  So, the high interest rate won't be there forever and at least I will have assets rather than renting or not having a car at all.  So, bankruptcy in my case was the best option.
I'd think it would be long-haul truck driver or
long haul truck driver, depending on account specs and whether or not they use hyphens.
Congrats and while you are at it, report your truck stolen by him.
I have the truck! Forgot that important tidbit!
The police asked him to relinquish it. Ta Da !!!
Camaros..three 1994, 1998, and 1999 and a truck,

My hubby drives a long distance truck
thank goodness! He says the trucking business in dire need of truckers. Bet we donít see folks punching those in.
It's a bus, not a truck load of nuclear waste. It's a blue collar job,
Used to own a Suburban, loved that truck. Have ridden in Ford trucks and SUVs

The Helms Bakery Truck! It sold candy & Pixie-Sticks, too! Yumm! (n/m)
Our 16 year old son has been working for a year now to pay for his truck.
He's learning how to sand and do body work and how the engine and transmission go together. My parents didn't buy cars for my siblings and I either. I had a 20+ year old beater car until I could afford to move up to a a newer one.

I see all the nice new cars parked in the high school parking lot every day. It's nice that so many disrespectful punk kids get handed something nicer to drive than what all the teachers drive. Oh, well. Honestly, I think most of them borrow Mommy or Daddy's car or are the child of a doctor who can afford to hand them everything.

Hopefully, my kids will take better care of their cars because they bought and built them on their own. You're not going to grow up to be responsible if you don't work hard for something and expect Mommy and Daddy to bail you out all the time.

Oh, my Dad lectured us on even allowing our child to have a vehicle because Dad didn't have one until after he had worked his way through college, lettered on the football team, got straight As, lettered on the baseball team, yadda yadda. He either walked or hitched a ride. Yeah, well, times were different back then, Daddy-O. LOL At least my kid has the opportunity to work and earn his own car.
That is a good offer. Pay is not that good at UIMC. Good luck! nm

Any rose gardeners out there? Good roses that are disease proof and smell good?
I heard good things about Knockout Rose but they don't smell too much like traditional rose.  Supposedly blooms all season.
