Monday Koffee Klatch
 
    
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
 
Daily Question:
 
Have you watched "Pillars of the Earth"? A television series.
Fantastic I tell you! I would like to read the novels by Ken Follett as soon as I finish Grisham's "Confession". It is seldom I even sit because it is terribly painful. This however was well worth sitting for. I wrapped my hips in a 2ft long heating pad and soon became engrossed in the past.
 
Have you watched a good movie or mini series latley?

And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

The peaceful warrior is amazing! I had to follow up with the book which was equally amazing! Very inspirational and family type.
“Maybe if I share the path I walk then a little more of your pain will vanish. I want you to heal, whoever you are. I don't care what pain you've brought the world, I just want yours to subside. No matter what, your path is yours. Dont follow misery or worry. Devote every moment of your life to improving your dreams. Love your world. Cherish the good you do. Let go of hatred. Dream of love.” ~ ?

I am a huge fan of Lord of the Rings, so I do a marathon twice a year - all three movies from the extended version, PLUS all the supplemental CDs.

This generally means sitting for hours like you Dani - so I make sure all my hot packs are in place and my dear hubby reheats them for me when needed (this is the man who will build me a fire in our fireplace, go up to his office to do whatever and set his alarm on his watch to come down and add more wood to the fire, so I don't have to get up!)

I also have the entire series of Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show with Sarah-Michelle Geller. So far, I've only watched a few episodes so I've got LOTS of fun ahead of me as I go through all the DVDs!

I wait for movies to come out on video or released to stations like Starz and HBO before watching them. In the last month the best movie I seen was Alice in Wonderland.

I know Johnny Depp is a fantastic actor and had no doubts his performance as the Mad Hatter would be good, but I honestly was not expecting to enjoy the movie as much as I did.

I agree with Jim...Alice in Wonderland was amazing! I love Johnny Depp, he is a great actor. It also helped that this is my favorite childhood movie. I was glad I wasn't dissapointed in the remake.

Jim and Shannon,

I haven't seen the movie yet and was kinda waffling about whether I would or not. It sounds like you both rather enjoyed it, so I think I'll be looking for it today while out running errands.

Thanks!

The Clone Wars. i do not even like cartoons but this is totally different. i have read several of the Star Wars book series and some of those are better than the movies and it's a storyline that spans thousands of years you only get a blip of on TV or the movies
