How do they ??
« on: February 07, 2017, 11:34:40 am »
know where to gather?  Do they call each other?  Send out radar or distress signals?  Is it purposefully or accidentally?  Do they plan their hidey places or are they just playing "hide & seek"?
 

  
Here is the evidence and yes, there are seven pair.  Six have already snuggled in and another is coming to join the party.  If they would always gather here we would always know where to look but no,  next time they will be in another spot and probably in a different room.   ::)

They do seem to move on their own.  Probably under the cover of darkness.

At least yours herd up.  Mine don't seem to gather in groups.  I suspect they travel with the missing socks.

The older I get the more I realize that you have to put items in the same spot so you don't spend a half day looking for them next time you need them. :)

MM,
I've got the same granite counter tops in my kitchen.

I've only got 1 pair (vari-focal) so they (pretty much) don't leave my head but I have been known to loose them.

With our old Sony TV, we ended up with 3 (large) remotes for it.  And they never left the TV room.  Guess how many times we couldn't fine ONE!  They used to gather under the couch.

Now, with the new TV, only one remote.  I keep telling my son to put it on the coffee table and you will know where it is.  Does he? NOPE.  He would rather spend 5 or 10 minutes searching for it every time he wants to watch TV.  At least he is getting exercise!

   I have 3-4 pairs of reading glasses scattered around the house. I used to buy the cheap ones at Wal-Mart and TSC for 3 pair for $7.98. When I turned about 45 or so I got to where I could not read inside and had to use the reading glasses inside. A little over a year ago my eyesight changed and everything got fuzzy when I tried reading inside and I found it was the glasses - I no longer needed them. Don't know how they shifted back but they did. Don't know if they will change again. Time will tell.

The older I get the more I realize that you have to put items in the same spot so you don't spend a half day looking for them next time you need them. :)

I have found this to be the best solution. I have one spot for gloves, one spot for keys, one spot for sun glasses when I walk into the office/shop. Put them down there when I walk in, and pick them up when I walk out.
Pretty much the same thing at house. With keys, gloves and sun glasses.

PS. I once asked my eye doctor how much he was turning up my glasses prescription, and he told me he was turning it down. I said down, how can that be? He said they are called "corrective lenses" for a reason. They help your eyes correct themselves. I never heard that before, but it did work with me.
Whatever you do, have fun doing it!

I landed on a YouTube link and watched it for a while (30 or 40 minutes).  This guy gives seminars on how you can get rid of glasses by fixing your vision all by yourself (with the help of his detailed guide ;) ).  He talk made a lot of sense.  Your vision changes because the shape of your eyeball changes (more football shaped and you need correction).  His claim is your eyeball is very flexible and is pulled by your eye muscles.  Like any muscles, if you don't stretch them, they will get stiff.  These stiff muscles will hold one side of your eyeball while the other side is trying to point it somewhere.  This deforms your eyeballs.  He devised an exercise program to loosen up the muscles and that lets your eyeball go back to normal shape.  He had testimonials like crazy.  Of course, eye professionals don't like that idea!

Well Magicman I guess if I have to find a plus sign to being basically blind without my glasses is that they're the first thing to go on and the last thing to go off  :D, I can't afford to lose track of mine  ;).

I gave up on them things.
Eye doctor and a pair of glasses and I am all set. I've had 3 pair so far in about 15 years. So much easier. I get at least one a day,that can't see something.  ::) I have to read something for them. I am much happer now. Get the safety style and they can be worn sawing too.   ;)

Correct Ray.  I have been wearing these for a few months and I am very satisfied with them.  So much so that I ordered a couple of extra pair.  They have a 1.50 bifocal.

I did not mean them.
I had a pair of prescription safety glasses. Came with side shields and all. Take off the side shield and I was all set for a night out on the town. I gave up on those cheaters. They are just too much of a bother for me to wear. I tried them and I got tired of the bother of them. Try to look away and I could feel them pull my eyes. really bothered my eyes.
We do sell the cheaters safety glasses at work.

  It's bad when you look around for your glasses and then realize that your wearing them, at least that's what I've heard.
