So now only Macy is pointless. <smirk> We went to the Ft Worth Kennel Club today and was literately the first dog in the ring for the day. There were two bitches entered for points. Obviously she took Winners Bitch, as there were no dogs. We competed in Best of Variety which Dave and Ivy did quite well, but I learned to let Summer move out a bit more. We get to try again tomorrow! Continue reading

Obviously it’s my CSS block that is slowing me down. There are three ways to apply CSS. I’m always like doing it backwards, because I think External Stylesheets are the most important. http://htmldog.com/guides/css/beginner/applyingcss/ Every website should have one external style...

I’ve put in a request to have my generic Celebrex switch from a 30 day to 90 day prescription multiple times. It keeps being ignored. I don’t blame the doctor, I blame the medical assistant who grouses every time she... Continue reading

I’m hoping to finally defeat CSS this time, so we will probably take a long time on it. HTML is easy, I’ve been teaching it literally for decades, but I’ve never truly groked CSS. I can read it, and modify... Continue reading

There last HTML tutorial puts it all together. http://htmldog.com/guides/html/beginner/conclusion/ Of course, I’ve done some of that already by having you make the start or your portfolio. Once we learn some real coding, we’ll had a contact form so you don’t... Continue reading

First, they are quite confusing since i get a text message every time the finish filling a script. For some dumb reason, they did my pen insulin (emergency supply) before they did my vial insulin. I tried to tell them... Continue reading

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
