    Ah, thanks Blue! Appreciate your support.
    Today was an awesome birthday. Went to church & after going up for birthday blessing came home with altar flowers. Dh got teased about taking me out for dinner, and he responded that he hadn't been told yet what we were going to do. On way home I gave it serious thought and decided I'd like to play 9 holes of golf, then have my favorite lunch- tilapia sandwich with french fries, then come home to watch PGA.
    Heard from both my children & my sister....all in all a nice day.

    Good night.

    TMH

    Hi Blue -

    Moderate drinking is defined as up to four alcoholic drinks for men and three for women in any single day, according to The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse & Alcoholism (NIAA), USA, and a maximum of 14 drinks for men and 7 drinks for women per week.

    There are other groups with similar definitions - the CDC says: "According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, moderate alcohol consumption is defined as having up to 1 drink per day for women and up to 2 drinks per day for men. This definition is referring to the amount consumed on any single day and is not intended as an average over several days. The Dietary Guidelines also state that it is not recommended that anyone begin drinking or drink more frequently on the basis of potential health benefits because moderate alcohol intake also is associated with increased risk of breast cancer, violence, drowning, and injuries from falls and motor vehicle crashes."

    I'm not sure who you mean when you say how did 'they' come up with the rules for moderating. For me personally, I am taking my own approach which is significantly less than what is defined above because I have found that in the past, when I was trying to moderate but allowed myself to drink multiple days in a week, i wound up back where I was when I came to MWO - overdrinking nearly every day of the week (usually around a bottle of wine daily, often more) and sick and tired of being sick and tired all the time. So since I knew from experience that I can't drink that often, I now only drink very rarely so that I don't fall back into the habit that I was in before. My brain and body was always used to drinking every day and now it is used to not drinking. So far so good.

    Happy Birthday TMH!!

    Oh...I didn't read your post carefully enough...I'm not sure how they came up with those amounts - that's a good question!

    Well...yesterday was suppose to be an AF day....before I had three beers. I didn't really sleep. I'm finding your if I'm not quite tipsy when I go to sleep...I can't find a comfortable spot. I'm like which way do I lay that I can't find it sober??? I even took two benadryl and still tossed and turned.

    I've been all the way awake since 5:30....sadly listening to the rain come down in my closet.....I called a new guy yesterday, hopefully he'll call me back today with a price we can afford...to finish tarping it and shore up the spots that started leaking again.

    I'll check in a little later...

    Good luck with the roof stuff blue!

    Working hard here, at the rate I'm going it will be a 60-70 hour week and I'll be working all weekend - but I will be working from a weekend trip we are taking to a nearby lake - even if I won't be able to completely relax it will be nice working where there is a nice view!
