If you want to continue eating delicious home-cooked meals, I need a working kitchen. If you'd rather go fishing... Burger King is your friend.

Simple.

Sounds to me if you don't fix the kitchen she's going to take you down with her Mr. Zog  :peepwall:    hits enter, ducks and runs   :lamer:

Hey, if I'm fat, you gotta be fat too.  :imaposer:

Eventually, the entire kitchen needs to be gutted and redone, but we can't afford that for a long while. For the short term, I at least need the basics to work properly, as they should.

Finally I will purchase a Reverse Osmosis water filter from work (I should get it at cost, and can pay it off) and install that under the sink too. Then we can have perfect drinking water on tap. No more bottled water...
Interesting....I work for a company that design and construct desalination plants using RO. Currently building 3 plants, each capable to do 200 000 m3 per day.

Courtesy from Grizz: In this day and age religion is often frowned upon, but I have met some of the most amazing people from various religions over time.
From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.

Wild Dogs, some advice please.

This medication I'm taking is making me really nauseous (not throwing up, just a constant queasy feeling  :tongue6:), and it's not nice. I'm drinking ginger tea and peppermint tea by the liter (which is fine, because I'm supposed to increase fluid intake). Any ideas what else could help with that?

Ginger tea won't give you enough to work against the nausea. Get ginger tablets as well I think or just raw ginger

While running a trail on motion sickness remedies we found that almost 50persent of the people that partake felt nauseous while using any form of ginger. Change is good that the ginger activates your nausea and I would recommend to ask at the pharmacy an antisemitic which does not contain antihistamines eg stay away from Cyclizine 50mg which is brilliant for motion sickness and other forms of nausea but makes you sleep.

You may need a receptor blocker or even a corticosteriod like dexamethazine and I have also used Zofran in some cases. Depending on what is available and what axactly the problem is, I would recommend to speak to your pharmacist A.

But again contrary to what many say, ginger is most probably making it worse now.

Ms Z try plain hot water with a slice of lemon.
Chamomile tea also.

I saw a BBC program last week where they were using different things for motion sickness on identical twins. This was only a very small study/experiment. The feeling of nausea from motion sickness reduced by 63% if I remember correctly. They were using a machine they use to train pilots with apparently.

200 000 m3 PER DAY  :eek7:

That is a LOT of water, must be MASSIVE plants. But I'm guessing the UAE guys can afford it  :deal:

I got my RO from the boss today. It can produce 200 litres a day, which is a lot for a residential grade unit.  :thumleft:

So today I had to go back to Cape Coral.

The big job that I did there in December needed a small change. So 4.5 hours driving there, 2.5 hours of work, and another 4.5 hours driving back. That was my day.

Driving there I drove through some really massive storms, lightning, wind over 50 MPH, and even tornadoes in areas.

And on the way back I drove past this crash that had happened a short while earlier. There was a cop car and a tow-truck on scene, so I didn't stop.

But I was guessing that the fire department was on their way …    :peepwall:

What is your legal liability and responsibility when you stop at an accident with injured people?

You have paramedic background but not registered in US.
Media portray Americans to sue easy.
You can't just leave someone to die and do nothing?

Some not so seaworthy people chew on a carrot when feeling nauseous - very simple maybe it works for you
Otherwise great thread - enlightening perspective as to the good things we still have here and where we fail  :thumleft:
