So happy to make new friends !!! They are from Costa Rica, visiting Europe... what were the odds? Angels at work? So nice.

    Looking forward to the weekend. About sixteen  of our congregation will travel up to Stratford on
    Friday. On Saturday we join their congregation in field service to help with seldom worked territory.
    Saturday night is a meal with them at a restaurant and Sunday we attend their meeting before coming home.

    Saturday I was heading out to field service and found my moped had been stolen overnight. I was determined to still go as I had made arrangements for a return visit/study.
     Met someone on the doors 3 weeks ago had a long spiritual discussion with them and offered a study. Last week again had a good discussion and started the Bible teach book.
    Was able to forget about things and focus on spiritual matters.

    Big announcement tonight! 16 congregations in my city are no longer going to exist as of April 1 (only 2 of them are English). With that, at least two Kingdom Halls, and possibly a third, are no longer going to be used as KHs (one of them is ours). Things are being reorganized to better use our facilities. (Similar to the status update from @Old dated Feb 3.)

    Awhile back someone posted a link to the 2019 year text - blue background and white lettering.  I am using it as my wallpaper but neglected to save the file and have no idea if or where it is saved on Win 10.  I can't find the post where I got it... any ideas where it might be in here?  I'd like to print it out.  Thanks!

    Well, it's been four months, almost to the day, that I had my constant passing out problem after the Sunday meeting.
     
    My appt. with neurology finally came about this morning.  
     
    The neurologist was completely stumped as to the cause of these repeated 'syncapol episodes'.
     
    He was, however, able to rule out a whole bunch of possible culprits.
     
    Thanks to going KETO, I am almost 40 pounds lighter now, and I told him my 'insulin resistance' theory.  If insulin resistance was causing all my other health woes, maybe it was the cause for this, too.
     
    He said he figured it was as good an explanation as any.
     
    He was astonished that the ER doc hadn't contacted the Sec. of State and that my driver's license hadn't been put on hold for six months.  
     
    But, since I have had no further occurrences of this odd malady for the past four months now, he
    told me I may as well just continue to drive, since my six months will be up in just two more months.
     
    Finally, I left with the assurance that the root of the problem was physiological and not psychological.  
     
    A diagnosis I can definitely live with...I hope.

    There's a 10 to 12 car pile-up here, in Michigan's Central Upper Peninsula.   The pile-up occurred in white-out conditions on one of the most remote stretches of M-28 highway and the windchill factor is currently waaaaaaaaaaaaay below zero. 
    I know, because I was just outdoors for a few minutes, refilling my bird feeders and every uncovered surface on my body sort a' froze...including my eyeballs.
    Also, the search is entering its second day for a missing hiker in the Yellow Dog Plains...another extremely desolate place.  In fact, it is considered to be a remote wilderness because there are practically no roads around there.
    Windchills got as low as -30 F. last night, so it is not looking good for that poor lost victim right now. 
    Warnings, to remain indoors and stay off the roads, have been being given for the past few days and people continue to ignore them, much to their detriment.
    Jehovah's warning isn't the only one they refuse to listen to.

    Weary of being sick. Had sinus infection in November and it's back again this week along with strep throat. Thought i just had a cold, nup. Dizzy, cross-eyed, tired, woozy. Went to urgent care today and they put me on some stronger meds. Hope to feel better soon. Can't be soon enough, cross-eyed makes it hard to function.

    I fell yesterday. In service. I was getting out of a back seat, my feet got tangled in my purse strap, and down I went. Initially, flat on my back. Then I bounced, and my head hit the ground, and it bounced. It was a hard fall. I remember as I was in the second phase, thinking, “Oh great, a two phase fall”. 
    I'm sore today. Actually pretty sore, and I did my neck no favors. At my age, it could have been life altering. Have you any idea how grateful I am? I assure you, that will not happen again. 
    I could have broken so many things. I feel like I really jarred myself. As I said, one thankful person, I am. 
    (It was my call, I went on it, then we all went home.) A long day that ended well!)
