Probably Steve Jobs because his iPod has changed the life of my family the most in the past year. Bios I need to reverse this change a little bit.

Least like to be haunted by? I don't know. I suppose any serial killer would be pretty awful.

I just corrected my influenTAIL spelling in the title sorry :smileyvery-happy:

We had fun with the talking ham questions HAMMING it up here.:smileyvery-happy:

We were thinking about getting my Mom an IPod for her mother's day gift... do you think it is easy enough to use for a novice Robin?

I like your choices Jean and Robin!

I don't think I am superstitious either. I do dream. Do you remember your dreams Jean? Are they always good?

Thanks for sharing about your mother. I know it is hard to witness our parents failing health. Why do her doc think she has edema? Is this part of just getting older our circulation weakens? My mom gets swollen ankles if she sits too long. What is CHF?

My mom will be 83. She was disappointed when she got back to NC the little shop she worked at had changed store managers and the owner has not put her back on the schedule. She was working 4 hour shifts two or three days a week selling gourmet cooking items. With the economy they probably don't need any one over the summer... She really enjoyed the interaction. The lifestyle of living in Florida for 3 months really is a stark change to going back to NC.

She stays in a little townhouse community where everyone gets together mornings for coffee and donuts ... Walking, tennis, golf, bridge, jewelry making,sitting by the pool, gourmet food progressive dinners or going to local high school theater and jazz programs to going back to more suburban city life, where every one has to call or get in a car... Just not go out on your front porch. She kind of gets depressed... Although when I take her north I notice the dark clothing everyone wears versus our tropical brights too. And her politics seem to be more a challenge to maintain table talk in conservative NC haha

We have tried to get her to go electronic as she calls email. My sister who lives in town with her is not the patient teacher type... My mom I believe is almost afraid to tell her she messed a setting up on her computer. I forgot to set up her laptop before I left... So I know she has probably not even tried

CHF is congestive heart failure, where the heart becomes thickened and stiff, and cannot push enough blood thu the body.
