Hey, MC, is your neck any better? I am sure that you have tried your local Goodwill or other thrift store, but in case you haven't, that's an idea too. Another idea is if you have a local college or university, at the end of semester people sell off their stuff for cheap. 


Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. Marcus Aurelius

My neck is feeling better, my legs are killing me. I know, I know. I am falling apart. I need a new mattress as well. I am one of those people who does best on a padded rock. My mattress has sunk in the middle.


I just put a board in there and padded it to help me sleep with out agony. we shall see. :))Tongue Out


A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle

Try sleeping on the floor. Seriously, if you like a hard mattress it might help.
Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.

Great minds think alike. I did just that last night. And I feel so much better today, there is no describing it. :)

I've found that when I sleep on the floor, I don't have that far to fall when I roll out of bed. Tongue Out

During my rebel teenage years I slept on one mattress on the floor. Never had any back trouble. But discover getting up was heck. :))

LOL!  Yeah, particularly depending on how many empty tequila bottles are laying there beside me.  >Not really, just one of those straying, errant thoughts<

MC, I don't know if you wear glasses or not, but I have a pair of computer glasses now and they help, too. I was tipping my head back with the bifocals.

Hmph!  I'm blind as a bat.  Without my glasses, I can't see beyond my elbow, clearly.  If I were to wear computer glasses, I couldn't see anything else in the room - and with my office, that can be scary!


Happy New Year, everyone.
