I think it's due to HIPPA regulations.

Elizabeth, they're being cautious because they don't know who you are when on the phone.  Better to err on the safe side.

Sun shining here, roads cleared.

Wife is out in my truck, her car is in the shop. nothing major.

 

I've been working on my look, and btw, I don't have a hole in my throat, just sagging skin thank goodness.

(picture next door here)

 

Hippa laws. When I was teaching carpentry at the job corps, the center nurse came to me

and said she had a new student that wants my course, she said do not let him take your class.

My course involved power saws, and cutting and such.

Do to hippa laws all she could say was, and this is true, screw the law for a minute, the kid has aids.

So this kid comes to my shop and I lay all these blue prints and books on osha and math, and such.

I tell the kid it will take a year of classroom before the shop, (I lied about that to him)

He didn't take my class.

@Willow This is a Comfort Glow QDE 1320. Remote control also. Tipping safety switch, 3 infrared quartz bulbs

and fan driven. It is one of the best little heaters I've ever owned.

Cost $120.00, you've seen the pictures of my office, this little jewel will fry you out.

Good morning all.  Or rather good afternoon here.  I'm on my third cup of coffee before I head out to work.  I only have to work two hours today so it's not so bad.  We've had pesky on - off snow showers all morning.  It's not really sticking though so that's not too bad.

A big part of my problem is I only have 30 amps to spread between the heater, the refrigerator, the VERY important coffee pot and everything else that uses AC.  The tiny propane heater at 700 btu will roast you.  When I got up the electric heater was cranking but the place was only 60.  I turned on the propane and it was 72 in no time.  It is rated for indoor use.  Has all the tip over shut offs and a CO detector shutoff.  But I am leery to run it when I’m asleep.  Also since it is either on or off it would be a sauna in here.  
 

did our shopping today.  Came back with extra stuff.  (Shouldn’t shop on an empty stomach). Then we had to find places to put it all.  Oops!

 

The boat actually has a lot of storage.  Unfortunately a lot of it is taken with things that aren’t food.  One whole side is an 80 gallon water tank. The seat in front of the sail locker is taken up with an air conditioner. Under the third seat is full of tools and spare parts.  That would normally have minimal tools and parts but be full of canned food.  There is always the bilge but I’m still locating and fixing water leaking into the bilge.

 

speaking of fixing, I’ve got some indoor work to do.  I’ll check back later.

I'm kinda partial to the oil filled radiator ones. Don't have to worry much about someone dropping clothes too close to it. Takes a long time to heat up a room, but it stays warm real well.

Good afternoon! The coffee was almost as good as sleeping in my own bed after 4 days of traveling. Lol. And I must admit I have done nothing but sit on the couch and binge NCIS. I’ll get more active later… tomorrow.

Hi, I found and fixed another water leak.  It’s all been at joints between hoses and fixtures. Loose clamps. Stuff like that. I also installed a medicine cabinet over the sink in the head.  I did it for the mirror but there other advantages.  
 

not too happy with our local weatherman.  He seems to be zeroing in on ,

”article temperatures.” and ice storm Friday and Saturday.  I think he needs to go back to weather school and learn how to not predict winter weather for here.

An air conditioner?  On a sailboat.  Wow.

 

For weather I like Weather Underground since it links to the National Weather Service but also shows actual weather as reported on nearby local home weather stations.

Yes, an air conditioner.  It uses water, not air as a heat transfer median. Why? Well it gets hot in the south and you can’t sail everyday.  So when you are at anchor or tied up to a dock, rather than sweltering it’s nice to have an air conditioner.  I actually took it off another sail boat that I was salvaging.  Since it uses water, it’s a lot more efficient than your typical home ac.

One of the only professions  where you can be wrong half the time and still keep your job. Most anymore just read the computer, don't really do any meteorology.

I can imagine that it works like a radiator or chiller. It either runs water through it or over it with a fan blowing air past it to cool you. If the water your boat is in is clean enough, you could use it. Doesn't it keep at a pretty constant temp?

Good morning ya’ll. I volunteered to work my scheduled day off yesterday. The Mail Gawds conspired to make it the heaviest mail and parcel volume day we’ve ever seen. I worked a measly 13 hours. Think of the paycheck, right?

Yes it is. The only other profession where you can have an even lower winning percentage is left handed starting pitching.

Good morning everyone 

 

couple last things about the boat ac, water coming in goes through a strainer so it doesn’t clog anything.  It’s drawn in by a pump Then it acts essentially like a radiator (really a heat exchange) and finally exits the boat above the waterline.  It uses Freon with a compressor, gets cooled then expands in the air stream. A blower takes in the air at the unit and after chilling discharges it wherever you duct it too..   sorry if I mansplained.  I’m told I do that.

 

today is supposed to be the nice day of the week then down hill from here.  Winter storm watch has been issued. 🤬.   I am praying that no news is good news.

 

not much else to share unless you want to help with laundry.

I happened to me and ex wife even when I was in guy mode-legally married but different last name. It's a hippa thing.

Nothing new to report about my partner. I thought I posted something earlier but I don't see it. Maybe I forgot to hit submit. Probably for the better. I had to vent a little. I am losing faith in doctors being honest. Today I was told that her liver started working a little. That's nice, why didn't anyone tell me that it wasn't working? It was the same way I found out about her kidneys. They started working, a little bit. Totally after the fact.

@Elizabeth Star thank you for the update.  We are all with you in spirit and can feel your pain on some level.  I’ll keep praying for you and your partner.

 

sorry the doctors haven’t kept you fully informed,  I’ve had that experience too and it’s very upsetting.

 

sending hugs and love to you

My wife constantly getting that with her doctors. Are they all afraid that you can't take the bad news? Personally, I would rather know so I can prepare or just maybe come up with a fix.❤️

After this sinks in for a little while, I find that it's really not funny. There's really nothing funny about being "trans".

Mostly pain for us, and anyone around us. I guess some people make light of this so they don't cry. How many times have I made fun of gays and trans when I was crying about it inside. I don't like to even think about it.

As someone who does it, I get using dark humour as a coping mechanism, though I've only ever seen lists like those in an anti-trans context. There's a YouTuber called "One topic at a time" who looks at things like this in a light hearted and wholesome way. They usually lift my mood by the end of their videos. 🙂

      @Mmindy that’s the exact same percolator I’ve got!

      My life story is pretty odd.  Never had a relationship until my mid 20's.  Now I'm in my early 30's and I live in a committed relationship with multiple partners.  Growing up, my family had a lot of expectations for me that I was never able to meet.  I guess I'm going through the questioning I should have been able to do more freely earlier in my life.  So that's why I'm here...trying to make some sense out of my feelings, my body, and my relationships.

      Willow, I will always keep an old fashion stovetop coffee percolator. I have two at home, and one in the camper. I may be without gas or electric, but I’ll never be without a functioning coffee maker.

      Understanding that, since I don't necessarily have that much time left on this rock, I need to live it as me. Put to music, "I enjoy being a girl," and "I gotta be me. I gotta be me. What else can I be but what I am."

      Hi, meeting with another lawyer tomorrow.  We’ll see how that goes.  Our daughter is also supposed to be coming here to a campground for the weekend.  We’ll see if she makes any contact with us.   Kymmie, I don’t know what to say.  I’ve been through similar things as well.  I never know what she is thinking.  It’s ok, then it’s not ok.  I hope your sons birthday goes well.  Our sons birthday is the 29th.   Jandi, we are using a very basic coffee maker.  Put water in, put a pod in and press start.  One cup at a time.  And if we are away from the dock I have a percolator.  Old school!  I have used Folgers and Maxwell House. But not instant coffee!     Willow

      In a true homage to reading other peoples experiences and taking notes (thank you Kelly(particularly) but also et al) I have over the last couple of of days ‘come out’ to my business. I am a senior manager at company employing 1.5k, with a team of 22 that are my directs I had spoken to my Md some weeks ago about my transitioning, how it was early days, and tbh, soft soaped her about how wonderful it was to be working in a company that, whilst I knew it was going to be difficult, was forward thinking enough to be able embrace and (be seen to be able to) empower members of the lgbt community . She was keen to manage my becoming visible across the business, however I thought it was right that I should personally ‘come out’ to especially my team, but also my closest colleagues. We agreed that as soon as I started telling people, the likelihood of gossip (and therefore our ability to curtail the ‘ridicule factor’) would increase. So over the space of Tuesday afternoon and the whole of Wednesday (which was also the day my name officially changed to Dee (yeah..not Alice…long story)) I was allocated an interview room and ‘came out’ on an individual basis to 36 people - in an order that I had created on a scale of ‘can be trusted to keep their mouth shut (and thumbs off their keypad) to ‘gossip-monger in chief’ - just prior to a meeting at 4pm where the MD would announce my transition and explain to all the other senior managers what was expected of them in relation to ensuring respect from their respective teams etc.   I can happily report that (with the exception of 2 morons(whose life will henceforth be made a misery)), I received support, intelligent questions, generosity and predominately respect for the guts it takes not only to decide that you need to take control of where your life is heading, but also to look people in the eye and say ‘I didn’t want you to hear this from someone else’ (It also gives you the opportunity to mould their mindset in respect of ‘seeker of peace and happiness’ vs ‘deviant’)   Dont be afraid of this once you are sure , whilst it was emotionally exhausting bearing my soul (because you do have to to every question they ask), I staggered out of work last night with a refreshed view of the majority of peoples acceptance and enthusiasm to accept something ‘a bit different’ I get that it is early days with this situation in the workplace, but I have come out of it with a truly positive mindset.   Thanks for the inspiration ladies😊❤️😊❤️
