re: What will traffic be like around the eclipse totality areas? - BritLSUfan

re: Laparoscopic Appendectomy - Side Effects and Recovery Time - your experience - BritLSUfan
Thanks everyone. Went to the store and got the essentials plus a stool softener. My plan is no more pain meds today, take the poop meds and wait for "that feeling". Like someone mentioned.....laughing and coughing causes the most discomfort but holding your belly helps. Oh.. and bend at ...

Cheapest Hue A19 I find on Amazon is $15 a piece. Nonetheless, a mix of plugs, switches, bulbs is likely to be required to get a solution customized for every individual. I went the TP-Link solution (plugs and switches) for a couple of reasons: - No separate hub required - TP Link offered th...

re: Buying a phone on Amazon - BritLSUfan
I bought a Motorola X Pure from Amazon. This is what I had to consider: 1. SIM card size. My original SIM was "standard" size. These days there are "micro" and "nano". Make sure your SIM card will fit. 2. My new phone powered up and was functional right away. To activate "data" I had to call ...
