    Ben AI've mentioned before that I live in the middle of the woods, which makes allergy season a nightmare, but I don't think words really describe the situation adequately. Here's an aerial shot of my cabin. As you can see, Nature has me surrounded....

    • Vinny MI see what's happening. Tom posted another comment in the activity feed that you added a comment to. If you scroll down on this page you'll find it. That's the one that should be showing in your profile view. When you look at your profile view you see all the conversations listed that you took part in. I'll look in to why it's showing a different comment as opposed to the one you took part in. Thanks for letting me know.1 week ago

    Karen DeitemeyerOne more picture for today - this weekend was the Melbourne, FL Air Show - we live not too far from the airport and have enjoyed watching the performers practice Thursday and Friday and perform yesterday and today. I got lucky and managed to take this picture (with my cell phone) of the US Air Force Thunderbirds flying over our neighborhood.

    Karen DeitemeyerI'm posting a picture of me and Bill at our community's Black and White Gala last night. The dinner was good, the music was great, and "Mr. Casino" brought his Blackjack and Roulette tables. We played with fake money and fake chips, turned our chips in for door prize tickets, and I won a Lenovo tablet complete with a folio case!!!

    Jamie Sullivan

    Jamie SullivanBack from the first state based COPD Readmissions Institute in Connecticut. It was great to see over half of the hospitals in the state come together to learn and brainstorm how to improve COPD care and it was especially great to see the patients who attended and the real contributions to the discussion that they made. Here is a pic of Kristen (who planned the whole event!), COPDF President Grace Anne Dorney Koppel and Iowa State Captain Jean Rommes. I am sure Kristen will tell us all more about the event in the coming days/weeks and hopefully some of the attendees will join us here on 360Social too!

    • edpe77Mine /I assume reads o2 ok, but more often than not pulse is reading very high. Also don't use with cold or wet fingers.

    • clipperGood, now you can check your O2 while exercising to make sure you don't drop too low, especially on the treadmill. Exercising without one is not the best way to go :) 1 month ago

    • JeanYour pulse reading might be quite high if you've just begun an exercise program. After all, for years you haven't asked your heart to do a whole lot and now you're asking it to actually exercise? No wonder it's complaining a bit! When I first started, my heart rate was quite high, too, but as I continued it came down nicely. Now, after 15 years of this I really have to work to get my heart rate into the anaerobic stage.1 month ago
