are your eyes being affected by your PC? » Post #9

Sun Nov 27, 2016 08:55 in General Talk

I wish I had a few dollars for every pair of glasses I've had in my life.

I started wearing glasses at about the age of 7 or 8. My sister and I are both nearsighted.
My sister wears her glasses all the time. I never wear my glasses.

I wear my glasses when I drive. I wear them when I am watching something from some
distance, such as TV.

One day, many years ago, an eye doctor said to me 'you only wear your glasses to see, don't you?'
I was surprised and I said 'yes' and we laughed. He knew. He said, when you wear your glasses
things are too bright and clear....and I said 'YES'. It was a point I tried to make all my young life
when my family when reprimand me for not wearing my glasses.

The eye doc told me, your eyes are not going to get better whether you wear your glasses or
not and that it is ok not to wear them.....unless driving of course.

I thought about having the corrective surgery when they came out with that some years ago.
I was afraid to have it done since it was such a new procedure.

Money truly is not everything and in fact, very far from something.

I was watching a program just last night about an older couple. They were not old old.
They weren't retired. I'd say they were probably in their late 50's. She was previously
a vice president of a bank. Her husband was further up the ladder in something else.

They both quit their jobs to work summers at DollyWorld in Tennessee. I think it was of those amusement areas up in the mountains.

Anyway, they work in dinning booth, serving hamburgers and such, for 6 hours per
day in the summer months only.

They live in a nice RV.

Why did they settle for far far far less money?

The reason is very simple. They wanted to live a life.

Before, when they worked in their high paying jobs, they worked many hours, seldom
saw the other, and was not having much time to enjoy life.

They decided to settle for less money and have a life.

So now they live in a very nice RV, only work 6 hours a day in the summer months BUT
they have a lot of fun, enjoy friends at the RV, make enough money to last them through
the winter months, and can of course drive off any time they want to.

Unfortunately, we don't live very long and here only once. I think often people don't really
think about their short time. Even many millionaires work most of their day and I guess
that is what their enjoyment is.....making money.

Money really is far from something.

It's simply an option and means nothing.

Some members may prefer not to display their earnings due to a variety of reasons
and vice versa as well. Has nothing to do with 'tact'.

It can.

I know they now sell glasses that are protective for your eyes when viewing monitors.
Amazon sells them. First place I noticed those and came close to ordering a pair a couple
of years ago. I didn't order them because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to see well through

I have a bad eye and see floaters/tracers. It doesn't bother me unless I think about it. :lol:
It's just something ya get use to.

I've been using the computer a lot daily for twenty years. It's difficult for me to say how much
if any, it has affected my eyes. I am very nearsighted and of course age progression takes a
big toll on the eyes. Now I am 'farsighted' too in that reading close up can be a bit annoying
to say the least.

I would suggest doing your research on those glasses. You might even go so far as to find
information from reputable sources such as eye doctors. I would think that they would help
more so than a carrot.

I haven't tried out the mini desktop yet. It also came with a large/long keyboard and a mouse.
I don't think I even realized the keyboard and mouse came with it. They keyboard and mouse
are both wired. I doubt I will use the keyboard but one never knows, might come in handy some
day. My apple keyboard eats batteries but I don't think the wired keyboard works with mac.
Anyway, the mini desktop fits in my hand. Really cute. I looked at it all and then put it neatly
back in the box. :lol:

Oh yep, my little dog is spoiled spoiled spoiled. He is 3 years old and weighs under 7 pounds.
He go's most every where with me. He has lots of clothes and pajama's too. I'm very very
protective of him and I do his grooming myself.

My house cat is rather rotten too but he is old. He only has one eye and just yesterday, he
walked right smack into the bakers rack. His one eye is now going bad too. I've got to take
him to the vet this week and see if maybe and hopefully, a cataract that can be removed.
He won't have too difficult a time if totally blind, however. He kind of hugs the wall when he
walks through the hallway and knows rather well without seeing where to go. He does not
really play any more. Every now and then he will do a little hop skip but that is about it.
Eat and sleep is his motto.

Reminds me of some years ago. There was a lady that was going to manage a
program of mine. We set up a time to talk over the phone. I called her. It was
very annoying, so much so, that I did not hire her for the job. The reason being
was because she constantly said 'dub dub dub' for www. After that time, I did
hear others doing that.

All I could think of is 'rub a dub dub, three men in a tub'. :lol: I couldn't hire
someone in which I would envision three men in a tub every time she said
'dub dub dub'.

I think it has been taken too far, which is primarily my point.

It's almost like cursive writing. They say some schools will stop teaching it.

Some day, we won't use words. We will instead use abbreviations and symbols.

On the plus side, it was stuff I was going to buy anyway. I didn't have any of those great "making the purchasing decision for you" offers that the news implied we had last year. Which is a shame, because I didn't really want deals - I've got a christmas list high on adjectives, but low on nouns; I wanted someone to tell me what to buy.


Well at least you got some things you were going to buy anyway.

They showed on the news last night about Target selling their 6 ft (not sure how tall but they are very big)
teddy bears for $10 and they sold out of them. Sold IN store only. Someone said how could they make
money off them for $10? They don't. It's an attraction factor. Get people in the store and they are going
to buy other stuff too.

It's like McDonalds. It's said they don't make money off their hamburgers, they make a killing off the
soda fountain drinks.

I don't think it has anything to do with sexuality, it's probably more related to my ongoing dilemma about whether or not to grow dreadlocks.

I hate those! Reminds me of a mop head.

Thanksgiving Day Sales - Oh Gee!
Pre Black Friday - Oh My!
Black Friday - Oh My My!
Cyber Monday - Oh My My My!

No, I don't brave the crowds to shop. I suppose if there was something that was an extremely
great deal that I just had to have, I might but I some how doubt it. I think I'd rather pay more
than go out on the holiday or wait in line or fight over getting to the item. In fact, on the news
after Thanksgiving, I heard a 20 year old man was killed.....said it was an argument over a
parking space. So there is a young man dead and another that will probably not see freedom
for a long time, if ever again. I guess I am just a funny person because I don't get mad about
stuff like that. I tend to laugh or simply wave the other person to go ahead and take the space.
People just get so tore up over meaningless stuff.

Anyway, I did get a few deals. Nothing major. I ordered several cheap appliances for my guest
house. Little appliances that were deals for under $10.00 each through Walmart. Ordered a
hot air fryer too that was supposedly a deal. Walmart had the wrangler jeans for $10.00 and I
ordered a bunch of those for the working men in my life. Also ordered various sleepwear.

Dell had some doorbuster deals online every hour yesterday. I ordered a couple of their half
price door busters. A monitor. Also a mini desktop. The mini desktop was not something I
needed but thought it might be useful at some point. My excuse to myself for ordering the mini
desktop was that it might come in handy when traveling. I rarely travel so It was a lame excuse
to self. :mrgreen:

I went to the Dollar Store yesterday for a can of pumpkin pie mix. They had those little light
weight soft plushy throws for half price ($4.00) so I bought a few of those for my dog.

Did you find any deals?

Last night at one point, I dreamed my toothbrush was in the toilet. Seriously, I really dreamed that.

In my dream, I walked into the bathroom and opened a drawer of the vanity to get out a comb and
noticed my toothbrush was in the toilet. I did a double take, looked at the sink and noticed the
toothbrush was not there. I then reached into the toilet and grabbed the toothbrush and tossed it
over into the trash can.

I woke up. I went to the bathroom to wee, looked at the vanity and saw my toothbrush laying
where I left it beside the sink, then returned to bed.

That dream is obvious to me. I dreamed it because I had to go pee and it was a dream about the
bathroom, the toilet, and water. ALSO, it was a dream about GUILT. I felt guilty that I left my
toothbrush out laying by the sink....I never do that, I always put it up inside the cabinet but I didn't
that night before bed. It was also about my DOG because I wondered if the toothbrush some how
rolled into the floor, my dog may have picked it up, and tossed it in the toilet. It was in ADDITION
possibly about me not letting the toilet seat down. I have the toilet seats that close by itself with a
small push downward.

So a brief dream that in reality probably only lasted a few seconds, contained a lot of meaning.
Although senseless meaning, for the most part.

I really really hate when I am watching the news on TV and they say something like this:

Today there was a fire at the GYK and the local fire department received help from the XAB.
Let's thank everyone that donated to the EWCTUBDE.

I am like......what is that? What is that? What is that?

Can't people say what they are talking about? Think about this 'GYK'

G - Gee
Y - Why
K - Kay

GYK is actually three words. So why not just say what the heck they stand for?

I don't dream of my ex husbands. Thank goodness!

Personally, I don't think anyone can define a dream but the dreamer.

Most dreams are simply weird mumbo jumbo stuff that makes no sense. They can stem from
the simplest of happenings throughout our day. For example, if I have friends over and we all
engage in various conversation, I might dream about one or more aspects of that.

Most dreams, we are never aware of and never remember. The only dreams we do recall is
those that wake us up or when we wake up period. Even then, if we don't focus on what that
dream is, we'll forget most of it.

It is said the average person has over 50 dreams a night.
