Re: Daily Check in February 23, 2021

I used to translate word for word first and then think of the figurative meaning when translating documents from French to English. MJ is using Parisian French which is totally different from the slang spoken here on the Prairies or even Quebec. Though Quebec will accept it, Francophones here in my...

Re: Daily Check in February 23, 2021

Gayle, it means, "Good afternoon, everyone." French is delightful to deconstruct because it's such a quirky language. Toute le monde literally translates to "all the world" but figuratively means "everyone." It makes me smile every time I see it because it's so expansive and formal at the same time...

Re: Daily Check In March 2, 2021

Hello all, I'm battling some decisions, and haven't been on here much lately because I don't always feel uplifted while here, or afterwards, although I used to.

Now, today, I'm unable to get my scan-to-computer to work. :( I'm trying a few things, before I give up and go to the library to see if they have a scanner I can use--will scan to my...

Re: What Would You Have On Your Pre-Op To Do List?

Jackie, I would just say don’t exhaust yourself getting ready for the surgery. If some things don’t get cleaned or ready meals made, it will all work out.
