I have two cameras, the smaller one for which the battery compartment door doesn't always stay closed, and another one that I can't get to work at all. Neither of them is that old! An extensive search online and in the stores makes me wonder if I can buy a point & shoot camera with a viewfinder. The viewfinder is a requirement, and I find absolutely no cameras that have them any more. If I hold the viewfinder up to my eye, it is possible that I can see what I'm photographing and get it fairly straight, whereas holding the camera at arms' length and trying to see what I'm taking just doesn't work. I may end up going to a camera fix-it place and see if I can have one or both of them repaired. It's discouraging because I still like to take pictures, even if I can't take good ones these days. For the record I didn't even look closely at expensive cameras to see if they are missing the viewfinder as well.
I stopped taking the eye supplements (the expensive ones touted by the guy on HSN) - yesterday morning was the last one I took, and today I can say there has been no additional bruising. I received the supplements I ordered from Costco containing lutein and the name I can't pronounce (zeaxan....). I took the first one this afternoon, only one a day being called for. I hope I can see an improvement, or at least no more visual problems or loss over the 140 days of capsules in the bottle.
A search online didn't say much about the diuretic effect on macular degeneration and one doctor even wrote that it didn't have an effect at all. He may be weighing a medically prescribed diuretic rather than one that just happens to occur in a vitamin supplement. I had a scary incident driving to Jeannie's yesterday which I'm attributing to the effects of those pills; I didn't drive much today but had no problem when I did, but I'm calling at least a temporary break on driving children in my car.
I went to Walmart to see if I could find the tape for hanging pictures on the wall. I looked around at other things and was totally amazed at how many items I stopped at that had no price shown whatsoever! Of course they don't usually tag the item individually these days, but the shelves were mostly missing price tags for many things I was interested in. I know, I could carry an item to the nearest scanner placed on posts around the store, but I shouldn't have to. If it had been just one item I might consider it, but this was multiple items and I could see nearby shelves were missing prices from random items.
I managed to get myself to the gym to walk before going anywhere else this morning. Sometimes I look forward to it and other times I dread it. I usually feel so good for going that I wonder why I fought the idea to begin with.
I bought parchment paper yesterday and made some cookies this morning. What a difference the paper makes and I wonder why I've never tried it before! The cookies come up from the pan very easily and there is no clean-up, which is perfect for a lazy person like me!
