Still here and still fighting.  Did we stop doing this for any particular reason?   In any case I still wish everyone a good month.

I just forgot. Good wishes to all. My birthday is this month and I am planning on having a Delmonico steak with a red wine reduction sauce and sautéed mushrooms. Roasted garlic and red potatoes and roasted Brussels sprouts. Now I just have to convince someone to cook it for me. 🙂

HAPPY BIrthday Tbird!!!!!!!

YUM YUM!!!!!!

Everytime I use my oven for a meat dish, I always tryroast veggies with it too-anything I have, yellow squash, zuccchini, thin slices of carrots or parsnips,or raw potatoes,  raw mushrooms,bite size broccoli , cauliflower , and always Garlic and brussel sprouts-drizzeld with olive oil and a little salt and pepper. they are SO GOOD- I use fresh garlic cloves and leave the paperlike stuff on the cloves whie they cook and Garlic is Fabulous roasted.

I wish I could come and cook it for you!!!!!!

We all need to eat well on our Birthdays- I had to pay a lot for small crab clusters for my last birthday-the price was what I used to pay for King Crab.

But I ate the crab clusters  for three days, with baked potatoes, sour cream, baked creamed parsnips and home made cole slaw, and it was sure cheaper than eating out.

Then rest ofweek I ate some fried spam a few times- spam was the only thing my father would eat for lunch and us kids were not allowed to eat it-

So I always thought it was some sort of fancy gourmet food. Maybe I still do!  I always keep Spam on hand.

Enjoy that meal  TBird!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is funny. My grandfather refused to let us eat his cake donuts. We had to wait until he got home for the approval...lol.

Happy birthday Tbird. I sure hope you get your Delmonico steak. I haven't heard that expression in a long time. I remember when I was in the Philippines and costs to us GIs were especially cheap at the commissary, as it was off-base.  The 2' thick porterhouse steak was within reach to us airmen. And the local seafood was crazy cheap. We would pay $5 for a 2"x10" slab of swordfish steak.  We paid our live-in housegirl $60 per month and she did everything.  Outside of the metro areas these prices still exist in the PI. I had to think long and hard about retiring in the PI vs here in the states. Now that my conditions are getting worse I'm thinking about the PI more and more.

Anyway, Happy Birthday.

Man that description of that meal made my mouth water.  Sounds like perfection.  Happy B day T Bird,   while I'm a little wanting of that deliciously scrumptious  meal, enjoy every bite and savor it and have many b days.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
