The quiz put me between NYC and Soringfield MA. I was born in New York City and have lived in central Connecticut since I was small.

This child of 1952 thinks that the names of our generation (Linda, Janet, Sharon, Donna, Kathy, Joyce, and so on) will get popular when our grandchildren start naming their kids, because everybody loves Grandma. Nobody wants to name a baby after that bitch who grounded you for flunking algebra.

I think it's more that when your great grandchildren start having kids then the names come around again.  Case in point Emma, popular in 1880-1910 and then 1995-present.  It seems the cycle for names is about 100 years.  My older niece, born in 2012, has a name (according to baby name voyager) that all but died in the 1920s and it is very close to cracking the top 200.  (Younger niece's name peaked in the 1930s).  It looks like people wait until a (female) relative is deceased until naming a daughter after her.  My mom (your generation) does not forsee a wave of Lindas and Susans until after she's gone.

BTW if you are a name geek, play with Baby Name Voyager.  You can see any name's popularity charted over time.

They quiz was bang on and pegged me from either Omaha or Lincoln.

I feel as a kid we used Pee-Cahn and Pee-can interchangeably.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!
