HELP!! I've Fallen and I Can't Get Up!!

Okay, what is it with this falling stuff? I want to know!   Sue fell in Australia, doing some chores around the house. MC fell, trying to 'rescue' some melting butter. She lives in Canada.   Oh, by the way, I also fell this past Saturday, trying to fix my truck for state inspection. My license plate light 'pigtail' needed to be replaced, so I bought one. I placed it in the hole in the bumper and I was laying on the ground, making the electrical connection. I did that and while I was tr

Denny's Cataract Surgery Update

Okay, just got back from my post-op eye appointment and boy, am I, or should I say my wife, in for a fun time the next 3-4 weeks. She has to put eye drops, 3 different types, in my right eye, either 3 or 4 times a day.   I have to wear an eye sheild when I take a nap, or sleep at night, for two weeks. Doesn't fit the greatest with my CPAP mask. Oh well, just need to put extra tape on the sheild.   And so, the fun shall continue.   Next week, and for a month, I get to play 'Nurse Denny'

Denny's Updates

Long time since I blogged. I guess I need to supply an update. By reading the update, you might understand why I haven't blogged in a l-o-n-g time.   As you might remember, I was hit by my pickup, last November 2009. I suffered 5 cracked ribs, and recovery took about 7 months, until I healed. Because of that accident, I was dianosed with Atrial Fibrillation, and I had a cardioversion on Feburary 5, 2010.   End of December 2009, I was in hospital for Dehydrated Kidneys, which I found out

Very Busy Doing Volunteer Activities

Hello:   I apologize that I have not been a 'frequent-viewer' of the blogs. Things have been hectic around here. Adult kids are either moving in/moving out/trying to get own apartment/asking for finances to help with bills (I am just 'treading water' paying my own), getting involved with a Men's Ministry at my Church, and other things. I'm also trying to raise donations for our local American Heart Walk in October while also trying to 'recruit' people to walk with my team.   Healthwise,

I Did Something I Shouldn't Have

Hello:   Today, Saturday February 17 was a good day for me. Well, at least I think so. :Clap-Hands:   A chef friend of mine asked me to shovel her sidewalk and steps. In fact when she came out of the door, she actually had to step up.   I shoveled and chopped ice and snow for almost 3 hours, took only a Tea Break and a bathroom 'pit stop' ( dang tea ). I got home and I told my wife that I actually felt pretty good.   YES, I know I shouldn't be shoveling and chopping snow,

Hospital Visit. Part #1

Hello Everyone:   Well, I came home from the hospital, on October 27, 2006, after a three-day stay. I only had a heart cath, a Transesophageal Echocardiogram and some type of drug-induced stress test. Last time I was in, for by-pass surgery, was December 26, 1994. SOoooooooooo it's been almost 12 years since I had any heart surgery.   I see the surgeon on Wednesday, November 1 at 5:00pm to discuss the 'plan of attack' regarding my future surgery.

Stroke Golf Tournament / Caregiver Respect

Hello All:   Yesterday, Friday, September 8, 2006, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting our CEO and founder of StrokeNetwork -- Steve Mallory.

Dusting off cobwebs, blowing off the dust

YES, you can teach an old dog new tricks. It has been a month and a half since I blogged. Okay, so SUE ME !!!!!   I just wanted to 'announce' that, in the Gallery, I have FINALLY 'posted' my picture (either basement OR Post Office material) and my bio.

God Got My Attention

This blog is written because of Asha's blog on Monday June 12, 2006.   The story you are about to read IS TRUE !!! You may either read it, in it's entireity or you may simply stop here and call it 'foolish'.   A little background information first. I was working in a truck / automobile tire repair shop. I fixed flat tires on anything from a wheelbarrow to a backhoe to a tractor trailer to a off-road vehicle. Now, on with my experience. IT DID HAPPEN, I HAVE NO

Ziploc Omelets

I received this as an email and I thought it sounded real interesting. NO I have not tried it yet, but I plan too as soon as I buy Ziploc Bags.   I think that this could be an ideal recipe for stroke survivors to prepare, because you COULD use Egg Beaters instead of cracking regular eggs.     Denny :chef:     Ziploc Omelets   This works great !!! Good for when all your family is together. The best part is that no one has to wait for their special omelet !!!   Have guests

Thanksgiving Memories

Hello everyone:   I just wanted to share my wonderful blessings and memories of a wonderful and enjoyable Thanksgiving. The opinions expressed here ARE MINE, and may 'offend' several people. I DO NOT APOLOGIZE!   Every year, missionary friends, in UPSTATE New York (which is anything above Syracuse according to some people) invite my wife and I up for Thanksgiving and the weekend. This year, due to financial difficulty, I wasn't sure that we could afford the trip.   In Sunday school

54th Birthday Celebration

Hello:   Well, my 54th birthday celebration is 'in the books'. My sweet, adorable, compassionate, beautiful wife took me out for dinner, on Tuesday evening, August 2.   About 16 miles from where I live is a place called Shady Maple Smorgasbord. On your birthday, they 'give' you a FREE meal. They have a breakfast, a lunch or a dinner smorgasbord. The dinner smorgasbord is a 'special' each night. Tuesday's special is Assorted Seafood. We could choose from: steamed clams, steamed mus

Another Recipe from Chef Denny

Hello All:   Someone PM'd me and requested a recipe. So, being that it is summer, and everyone is a BBQ Guru, I have a recipe for the gas grill.   I must warn you, this IS NOT for the 'amateur backyard cook'.   Before I start, there are a few 'ground rules'.   1). This recipe was made mith a two-burner gas grill. And the directions will be given that way. I have not made any with a three-burner gas grill, but it can be done. (PM me if you need instructions for three-burner gas g

35th HS Class Reunion - Pizza Party

Hello All:   I just wanted to 'report' on my High School Class Reunion Pizza Party that was held last evening (Friday, July 22, 2005). We had 72 classmates, out of 221, that attended. It was held in an elementary school's cafeteria, but we used fans instead of the air conditioning. (They couldn't just air condition the cafeteria) Made for a hot, balmy event.   We 'devoured' 14 large pizzas, and went through about 10 dozen sodas, besides three 24-packs of water.   It was from 7 -
