If you read everything from me, I’ve had to take a break in the boot camp. Was dealing with a cornea abrasion and couldn’t see. Will be back in the next few days! Continue reading

I will admit that the last few weeks have been stressful. When they call something dental surgery, they aren’t kidding. I was a bit surprised that I could drive myself there and back and that they weren’t using more sedation... Continue reading

This whole prescription thing has been a bit of a nightmare. I said yesterday, I had originally planned to just move everything that wasn’t a pill to the Express Scripts Prescription Plus Pharmacy. Then leave the pills to PillPack, but... Continue reading

I have been hovering around this decade for a few weeks. I saw it after my jaw surgery but as I predicted it went back up after a full recovery. That was three weeks, a cornea abrasion and a whole... Continue reading

I was initially going to move all of my non-packet medications to 90 day, but not Home Delivery. Express Scripts has an option where we can pick up 90 day prescriptions from a Prescription Plus pharmacy so it doesn’t have... Continue reading

In the past, if I want a prescription change, review of preauthorization I've had to make a doctor's visit to get it done. I did that on Tuesday for my primary care physician. I'm good with that. Yesterday I want... Continue reading

So I got my last Pill Pack bill for $344.92. Typical bills before then, ranged from $120-$160 a month, depending on what all I needed in mail order (insulin, needles, etc). Not a good impression. And please don't bother to... Continue reading

It seems the reason I didn’t get notified about the Innokana prescription is that they were billing it to Innokana and Express wasn’t involved. <shrug> I’m still leaving PillPack. Their phone hold times this week have been over 10 minutes.... Continue reading

PillPack contacted me last week to tell me that my generic Celebrex prescription need a preauthorization before the next shipment, a week away. Went to the doctors office yesterday to straighten out that and another prescription problem and did find... Continue reading

I'm good! Out of the contact lens bandage which I think was irritating me. She did say it had debris on it. Artificial tears over 4 times a day and ointment at night. She sees me in 3 weeks, and... Continue reading

Vision is pretty close to 100%. I am personally ready to get back to yoga but waiting until seeing the corean specialist on Tuesday morning. Have been doing light workouts so I don't sweat into my eyes. Continue reading

Writing good reviews can do two things for you – get some revenue is someone clicks on the link and buys the item or it could get you more items to review. Many companies do that. So first thing is... Continue reading

One of the things I’ve done is put advertising on my blogs and at least one of my portfolios. I haven’t made any money yet, but you never know. Here’s a good article about that: http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2013/06/affiliate-programs.html You should get started... Continue reading

Again, excellent resource for learning tables. http://www.htmldog.com/guides/html/beginner/tables/ I agree with them -- this shouldn't be used to layout a page -- that's very old school. There are some good uses for tables. Like displaying a table of information. Continue reading

I think I'm at about 90% now and I believe that changing the glasses prescription will fix it. Of course, I haven't seen the cornea doctor -- that's on Tuesday. Photo sensitivity is gone. Continue reading

I have finished the steroid eyedrops. I am down to an NSAID drop a day, artificial tears in both eyes 4 times a day, and antibiotic eyedrops 4 times a day. Vision is no longer cloudy but have a major... Continue reading

The next two tutorials cover the things that make your web page both useful and interesting. Links http://htmldog.com/guides/html/beginner/links/ Absolute links and relative links confuse most students. Absolute links are for linking to another site. Relative links are used to link...

The next section is on headings. Pay attention to organization, a lot of people don't including me. http://htmldog.com/guides/html/beginner/headings/ It is short and sweet. Since that one is so short, let's look at lists also. http://htmldog.com/guides/html/beginner/lists/ As always, connect with with... Continue reading

Doing well. Better than yesterday, not as much photosensitivity and better on the blur I think. So much better than before doctor saw me. I am attributing the blur to the contact lens bandage. No pain, but I'm sure that's... Continue reading

Excellent tutorial on how to do paragraphs: http://htmldog.com/guides/html/beginner/paragraphs/ And yes, I could rewrite all this myself, but what would be the point? The first rule of programming is never reinvent the wheel. You could do this completely on your own,... Continue reading

I really like their approach to titles. I see students get this wrong so often because they are used to books and not the web. http://htmldog.com/guides/html/beginner/titles/ If you want me to see what you have done so far, put a... Continue reading

Woke up very photo sensitive and with two very dry eyes. Put artificial tears in each eye. Marked each of the bottles with a sharper to indicate which I take. One is once a day, two are twice a day.... Continue reading

Start small. Create a simple one page website advertising your business. Put your name in the domain name. I've got http://www.mykweaver.com and http://www.kweaver.org Mine are more complicated right now, but you get the idea. You'll need a credit card. I... Continue reading

Last night, late, one of my former students reached out to me via Facebook Chat. Nice to hear from him, and we had a short conversation. He is wanting to go back to school but is pretty tied down right... Continue reading
