Eyes should not feel gritty
I loathe allergy season - and it is just going to get worse.

It hadn't been bothering me much before, but I was sneezing up a storm when I was outside today digging up weeds and bush roots.

I've only had one or two somewhat allergic days...until today. This afternoon, my nose was a faucet. And this evening, my sinuses are feeling pretty hefty. Nngh.

Nice music. Sure that shouldn't be video, though? ;)

What, do those numbers mean something? ;-)

Allergies do well and truly suck. When it comes to eyes, though, the pharmacist at my local supermarket made a recommendation that I find rather amazing. Eye drops, marketed under the name 'Naphcon A' (naphazoline hydrachloride and pheniramine maleate)...anti-histamine eye-drops, to be specific, which I was told (by said pharmacist) do not interfere with loratadine (claritin), Zyrtec, Sudafed, Singulair, or just about anything else taken internally (and wow, with that many drug names in this post, it probably looks like pharmacy spam!)

I figure what the heck, though...since I moved to the DC area my allergies have been horrific, and this stuff helps, so I'll pass on the possibly-helpful news.

Zyrtec helps me a LOT - even with the eyes.
(YMMV)

forgot to take pill today... kept wiping my eyes with my hand and wondering why it wasn't getting out whatever was in there.... duh.


Also, yawning. Lots of drowsy yawning, even after coffee. These are the signs that tell me I forgot to do something. Yes. Forgot to ward off trees-having-sex-in-my-nose.

tivo, tivo, tivo!

Hey...thanks for offering to help me out with the TiVo dilemma.

So, a buddy of mine says that TiVo doesn't work with all TVs...true?

Also, I haven't gotten anybody to clarify this with me: do you have to have some sort of phone line/Internet connection in order to get TiVo to work?

A thousand apologies for my ignorance...yell back at me at my blog if you want, or have time. Many thanks again.

Re: tivo, tivo, tivo!

I've never heard of a TV TiVo doesn't work with. Newer TiVos don't output RF, so older TVs that don't have A/V inputs can't connect directly to the TiVo. But you can get an RF modulator at RadioShack - I have one feeding my old TV in my room.

You do need a phone line or an Internet connection to use TiVo. A network connection is better, but a phone line works.

And no problem.

Re: tivo, tivo, tivo!

Thanks for helping me make up my mind.

Long live TiVo!
