Two of my lathes. The one in the foreground is a 1932 Atlas 9" that is almost completely stock and gets used almost weekly. In the background is a 12" Atlas made Craftsman for the heavier stuff. Not seen is the 6" CDC milling machine.

Some nights, worrying about not sleeping keeps me awake. Last night was one of them, so I took 1 Ambien at 8PM. I could definitely feel it kick in around 11PM, so I removed the door keys, staggered to bed, slept till ~3AM and woke up alert. I'll see how cutting it back to 1 works. Just have to take it a couple hours before I plan on getting bored.

I used to use a cassette with sleep music and sounds, but whenever it came to the end of the tape and snapped off, it woke me up. Kinda like just dosing off for a nap... and the phone rings.

I use to turn my phone ringer off, but would forget to turn it back on again.

X2 on this - it's relatively safe and a sleep producer!

One drug to STAY AWAY FROM is HALCION if it's even on the market any more. It was just like Ambien

There is a new drug soon to come on the market. It's called Suvorexant. Instead of working on the sensors that address the ability to sleep, it works on the ones that are to keep you awake. I'm sure like any new drug, it will be ultra high priced. It is supposed to have very few side effects.

Suvorexant - Google Search

It's still mired in stage 2 development, then then there is the FDA approvals, so it will be a while before it comes online. You're right about it being high priced !!!

I predict it will be pulled in 7-10 years after launch and become the subject of many late night commercials..

I've had my ringers off for the past two months because of the *&^%$#@! political calls. It's been so nice, I just might leave the stupid things off so I don't have to deal with the misbegotten telemarketers that ignore the DNC.

I can't turn my ringer off. I'm expecting calls from my doctors and I don't trust them to leave a coherent message.

You know, having a blue lightbulb or a pair of sleep goggles with blue light on them will make a world of difference too!

The blue triggers the brain to sleep!
