    Success and happy news for trading... my traders are the most organized they have ever been... so another pin trader could now send a trade request and I will be able to open a specific bins (with brand new labels/classified by pin type) and find the pin. Before I was slugging through 'semi organized' to 'not organized at all' traders.

    So bring on those trade requests. I can now find my pins. :)

    Blancolirio did i nice overview of the real time stats and stuff on his vlog at:


    plus you can go to the webpages he shows yourself for real time stats.

    Thinking of firing up my wii for additional entertainment options. My roku has been doing the heavy lifting till now. Anyone ever tried one of those tiny stepper machines that just lets you sort of walk in place without as much impact but sell aroudn 50-70 bucks? Do they really work or are they a waste of money? Can't afford a treadmill but trying to find an alternative.

    Got our main supplys delivered this last week so we are set pretty well aside from periodic grocery needs. And the hassle of pharmacies and there inability to do the regular refills required. It makes me sad that so many healthy people are trying to get presciptions for medicines they don't need in case it could help them if they get the virus, even though they haven't proven it will! It is making it almost impossible for people who already normally NEED and use that medicine for its normal purpose to get any. #sadness

    Thinking of starting a puzzle but feeling a little lazy, so i may do one digitally instead, easier to pick up and come back too LOL.

    Stay safe everyone :)

    Don't know about the walking thing... but I do a lot of DVD/video workouts (right in my living room in front of the TV.) I have been collecting these for 15 or so years, so these are now just available to me. Chasing them down under these 'stay home' restrictions might be a problem, but many may be downloadable now (probably for a price). Some of my favorites for getting the heart rate up:
    - The Firm
    - Hip Hop Abs
    - Slim in 6
    - Rock Body
    - Exercise TV (This used to be a website, you could watch or download.)
    - Cathe dot com
    - Turbo Jam

    Some of the videos are better than others... and it may depend on what you are looking for since there are a lot of options in each offering above. Some require no equipment at all and still give a good workout.

    PM if you want more detailed suggestions... I have a lot of these workouts... I do not like to be bored. :)

    Thanks for the suggestions @TheMickeyMouseRules and @starry_solo
    I like the idea of walking at home, i was just trying to find a way to do it that took away some of the impact of stepping in place as i find when i just walk on the floor in place i tend to sort of stomp and cause pain in my foot :(

    this is kind of like the thing i was thinking of trying: [​IMG]
    sorry i can't figure out how to scale down the pic so its not showing so big :(

    Not a bad idea. I would make sure it will not cause discomfort (knee/joint pain or other ailments).

    @DisneyJ that puppy video really brought some joy into my morning! Thanks for that.

    Yeah thats the thing with the little stepper machine is, i don't know if it will cause more pain etc, i was hopeing that someone might have tried one and could tell me if i was falling for another abdominizer or thighmaster gimmick scam or if they found it useful. The thing is i don't think there really that common and people are more likely to have a real treadmill or eliptical machine than a little doo dad like this. I am also wondering if the steps will be a comfortable width apart. Sigh, before the lockdown i was hoping to run by a goodwill and see if they had one to try as things like this tend to end up there but then poof stuck inside.

    I've been watching the Home Safari Zoo videos on youtube by Cincinnati Zoo. They have lightened the mood for me. They have one with Meercats which came from Disney's Animal Kingdom to there zoo. So theres a little Disney connection :) The porcupine and bearcat are two of my other favorites from there series so far.
    Anyone interested can find the series at The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden just look for any titles that say "home safari":D

    Have you tried checking sites of vendors who sell this machine (and similar) for user reviews?

    Did you get your crochet hooks in the end? That would be rather hard to have to learn how to crochet using knitting needles! :cheshire:

    If anyone needs a bit of fun and hasn’t seen this already, it’s pretty spectacular.

    Warning: it starts a bit loud

    For those with children (my wife and I adopted, more than a while ago), I recommend goNoodle.com to help them use some of their energy.

    Yup, good advise. I did read through and even selected one i wanted and as i went to checkout, poof all out of stock indefinately. Well there was one third party seller who listed after at over 200% mark up :( But that was way out of my range and no warrenty, so yeah nope.

    I just trust you guys here to give more honest feedback, than i do amazon to post negatives of there products, as it seems lately they have deleted alot of reviews that were less favorable throughout there site. So i thought what the heck see if anyone had advise, and some did pm me with helpful thoughts :)

    Thanks all for your encouragement and help :)

    I’ve had to stay home the last 2 weeks to self isolate. I woke up with a sore throat and body aches a couple of weeks ago and was told to stay home from work. I had a lot of down time after the first week (cold) so I decided to try and be productive and made family face masks with a pocket for a filter. [​IMG]

    The exorcist one is for me. These are just a few I made. In all I made 29 and keep getting asked for more. They take almost 45 minutes to an hour to make and I’m almost out of product to complete.

    My current knitting/keep-me-sane-during-social-distancing project. It's a little wonky but it'll be fine once it's blocked. :)

    I'm mostly just posting here, so that folks can see a recent post from me!
    I'm ok! I just haven't been looking at pin news, or wanted to trade at all really.
    I'm still working (construction business) and just trying to do my part and wear my mask when I make a rare trip outside, and just keeping occupied with Animal Crossing, and shows and movies!
