Half a tooth broke off. Off to the dentist. It hurts!!!


You have my complete sympathy. I remember the first time I lost a bit of a tooth. I was striding across the fens in Norfolk and suddenly a chunk of wisdom tooth met my tongue. I felt strangely mortal for the first time. It wasn't nice.

Sorry to hear, Milton. I've been there many times myself. Best of luck to you.

Thanks Reety and everyone else.

This is one of those cases of downsizing that I could see coming from years earlier (like scientists tracking a meteorite en route to Earth) and I wasn't the only one who was affected. 62 others many with families also lost their jobs. Thankfully I've got a bit of an emergency fund which I've squirreled away. Right now I'm checking out options, making sure to keep healthy by avoiding becoming a couch potato and will keep active in the job search. Now more than ever I can get caught up on my reading.

Thanks for the well wishes folks, I just ate my 1st solid food in awhile. Now I can feel the slow ache coming on. At least I got some food in me! I can't wait to see the dentist. That sounds funny. :lol:

In a touch of irony, today is the 15th anniversary of the hire in date for my current job.

In light of Milton Bradley's news, I don't feel as happy about it though. :|

Months ago, after visiting granny's grave, it was raining so badly I sheltered at the roofed bench at the cemetery. There was a funeral going on at the time, and they were playing such beautiful music it filled me up. They played it twice and I managed to remember some of the phrases, learnt to play them on keyboard. But I couldn't find out what it was.

And yesterday I discovered it. And I'm so happy now!

Will do, I have to finish the antibiotics first, so they'll pull it Tuesday. It's getting better, I can finely chew on one side at least.
Back to the 49'er/Carolina game. Touchdown Niner's, Go Niner's!!! :D

Hope your tooth gets sorted. I had a dry socket over a holiday period a year or so back. I chewed up so many pain killers til I could sort it, my liver functions were fucked up for a few months.

Got a note from my apartment building's rental office. "Thanks for being a great tenant. Next month is rent free."
That's $1,024.00 into my pocket!

That's great. How long have you lived there? I'm an apartment dweller myself. A long-term tenant who takes care of things and pays the rent on time really is an asset to a landlord and saves/makes them a lot of money over time when you think about it.

I moved here in Feb. 1979. They did the same thing about 6 years ago, too.

So when you were moving a few years back you stayed in the same complex? I though you've moved once since I was first on here or was that SabrinaI moving in? I remember pix of lots & lots of records. :?
