    New Year's Eve

    Every year-end we look forward to the new year to come and to reflect on the year that has passed. No matter what side of "things" you are on, I believe we can all agree that 2020 was, well, a MESS. For some maybe just a "the toilet backed up" kind of mess and for others a "stinking tidal wave...

    Mom Jeans!

    For the past 8 months it seems as if all I wear is work out attire (or my pajamas :rolleyes:), so I decided it was time to buy some new jeans. Scrolling through GAPs offerings and what did I find???? Actual MOM JEANS! That's what they are calling them, for real. They are listed as MOM JEANS...

    Meniscus Repair Surgery

    My right knee has been unhappy for months, so I was finally able to get an MRI last week. I have managed to tear my lateral meniscus and have a meniscal cyst! I am meeting with a surgeon next week. Ironic thing is it barely hurts (I thought it was my IT Band). I was being cautious with super...

    If you were attending the Daytona Road Trip what question would you ask....

    during the Q&A with Cathe? I would ask "How many workout outfits/clothes do you have and how/where do you keep them?" Considering my personal workout clothing collection is kind of out of control because I hate to get rid of pieces that I really like, plus I really LOVE buying new pieces; I...

    prAna clothing?

    Does anyone have any experience with ordering from prAna? They offer a program for certified fitness instructors that gives you up to a 50% discount off of their full retail prices. I am very tempted, but really have never heard of the company. Any insight would be appreciated, Thanks, Debbie

    Arizona Cathletes HELP!

    Several months ago I made travel plans to visit my god-daughter and her boyfriend in Scottsdale. Airline tickets - check; rental car - check; house rented - check; god-daughter still living in Scottsdale - uh.... no! Got a phone call out of the blue, she left her boyfriend and moved back...

    Birchbox?

    Does anyone in Catheland subscribe to Birchbox, the monthly "beauty" delivery subscription? Seems like it would be fun to get samples of new products each month. Thanks, Debbie

    Micro-Needling

    Just wondering if anyone out there in Cathe Land has had experience (good or bad) with facial micro-needling. My dermatologist's practice has just started to offer this procedure. The claim is that it will reduce pore size and improve skin texture and tightness. It's not cheap - $300+ per...

    Question about tipping...

    To tip or not to tip... I have an appointment for a facial with a woman who owns her own practice. She rents space in a "salon loft" setting. Am I supposed to tip her? The facial is $95, if so, how much? My feelings have been that you don't tip the owner of the practice, only employees. I am...

    Tommy Copper

    Does anyone have feedback on Tommy Copper compression products, particularly the compression sleeve? My husband has "guitarist's" elbow - a hybrid of medial and lateral epicondylitis. He has tried the rest/ice/therapy routine, along with a cortisone injection. It has improved greatly, but I am...

    Key West

    Any favorite spots in Key West (or any of the Keys)? We are going to be renting a house on Islamorada at the end of September. First time there - even though I have lived in Florida for 15 years. Kind of embarassing:o I haven't been there sooner. Love outdoor stuff - snorkling, kayaking...

    I am so excited, my new stainless steeel appliances were delivered yesterday, finally! However, the delivery personnel left tons of smudges and fingerprints all over them. I tried a stainless steel "pop-up towelette" cleaner but now the finish looks streaky. :( Any suggestions on the best...

    Best Hair Brush Ever!

    Goody Quikstyle The bristles are wrapped in tiny microfiber towels. They make a paddle brush and a half round. The wrapped bristles absorb moisture as you are blowing drying. Using this brush has cut my drying time by at least the advertised 30%! As a personal trainer, I seem to be forever...

    When did PlayDoh become....

    ...a controlled substance? Yesterday, at Target, I attempted to buy a couple of containers of Play Doh. The cashier asked me for ID. I thought she was kidding. The system was asking for my ID and would not process the order without it. The cashier was not only supposed to check my ID but...

    False Eyelashes

    Am I the only one not riding this wave? :rolleyes: I was watching TV the other night and the actress looked like she had awnings attached to her eyes! Sigh, seems like too much work plus glue near my contact lenses scares the daylights out of me. Debbie Russo

    What would you take with you?

    So yesterday my husband and I were watching the re-run of the first episode of the Walking Dead - imo one of the best shows on TV. The male characters were complaining that as they were trying to pack survival gear the women were packing sentimental items like family photos. I said "...
