OK… so you know by now that I’m a WWII nut.
Every Weeknight at 6 pm CST is a World War 2 show on. They play pretty much the same sets of shows over and over, just revolving them around in a loop. There are probably 2 months worth of shows. I just watch them over and over, because I always pick up something new. Tonight it’s Pacific: The Lost Evidence of Guadalcanal.
So what did I learn about? I learned about “Washing Machine Charlie”… Why, do you ask, do they call them that? Well it’s because they, the Japanese planes, circled round and round Henderson Field dropping bombs…
I didn’t know that. It’s the same feeling I had when I learned about Axis Sally… I didn’t know about her. I knew about Tokyo Rose, but not Axis Sally. Hunh.
I also learned that Cold and Sinus medicines can trigger Restless Leg Syndrome. I’ve only had it about 3 times. It can come with Fibromyalgia, so I’ve know it can happen. Anyway, I laid down at lunch, like I usually do at work, and had just a heck of a time with RLS. I could not keep my legs still for the life of me. With me, it usually is the left leg and arm and It’s really the oddest sensation, but that you MUST move your legs and it’s all the concentration and will power you can muster to not have your body part move…
I complained about it to TL1. She googled it… turns out that RLS can be triggered by some Cold & Sinus meds… I’ve been taking some of those for the last 2 days because my sinuses are killing me and I’ve been having raging headaches… So… I took my favorite Cold and Sinus med, the only one that makes my headaches go away not that Drixoral isn’t made anymore and viola… RLS. Fifteen minutes before I laid down, I had taken one of the head saving beauties…
So now you know, too. I will be in Florida on my usual 3rd week in Florida at Fort Walton Beach starting on Sunday. I’m already starting to ramp down at work at want to be there now. I need this break.
As usual, I’ll take pictures and keep you in the loop! Have a super Wed if I don’t hear from you!!
