torche lights

This may be old news to you but it is new to me. I have a torche light---not like on Survivor. Look it up in Penny's Catalog or a furniture store. It has a bowl at the bottom and reflects upward. I use a 200 watt bulb. Lights up the living room but it's defused. Ann D.

That is a very good idea. I also use pink or blue light bulbs which are easier on the eyes than regular bulbs.

Thanks for the suggestion. Now can you tell me about SSD? Ann D.

I had Long Term Disability Insurance when I worked as a nurse and was approved to receive it when I could no longer perform the functions of my job. When the LTD started, I had 30 days to apply for Social Security Disability and was approved within 60 days on the first try. I now receive a check from SSD and then my LTD makes up the difference so that I get 60% of my nursing salary. SSD is based on average income for the past 15 years of work and is less than 60% of what I was making. I was 48 1/2 years old when I developed BEB. I'm 51 now. It is rougher on those who don't have disability insurance, because SSD doesn't start until you have been disabled for 5 months. Fortunately I only had one week without a pay check from the time I stopped working and got my LTD approved. I took 30 days of family medical leave and I had 3 weeks of sick leave and vacation to receive during that time. Being unable to work for 30 days made me eligible for Short Term Disability and lasted 90 days and then my LTD was approved during that time. Does that answer your question?

Well, I'm over 65 (71) and I'm sure my Doctor would declare me disabled. After that how do I get permission to use the ssvan? Ann D.

Since you are already a senior citizens and a wise woman to be honored, just call the Senior Citizens Center in your area and I'm sure they'll answer all your questions.

I actually got my three watt blue bulbs from the grocery store at Albertson's and I get the pink single watt ones from Lowes or Home Depot. I've never thought of looking at K-mart. What do you want to know about SSD?

Ann, I've see the pink bulbs at Wal-Mart and Target. Our K-Mart closed but they would probably be there, also. Most places that sell bulbs(light bulbs) will have them.

Shirley in AR who just didn't want to get our "bulbs" confused. Anything will set off Virginia and Alan and Delaine and get them started talking about their gardens again. (which isn't necessarily a bad thing)

It's okay - I've had my botanical garden fix for the month and discussed blue bulbs (the flowering kind) already today. I think I can stick to the subject (at least as well as any of us do here) for a while.

Ann, I have some of these lights and I really like them. They are the easiest on my eyes. I've got dimmer switches on mine and so can put them at any setting. We have talked about them in the past but it is a useful tip and certainly deserves repeating. We repeat things all the time. There are always new people looking at the bulletin board that might not have seen something. Thanks for the tip.
