    I like the "Don’t be so humble .. you’re not that great". LOL
    Well, with my ipod I have to pause  it first *press bottom button once* then I press down on the same button again holding it until it finally shuts off *may take a few seconds*. That’s how mine goes anyhow. It’s always fun when it hits a glitch and I have to repeat that step 3-4 times. Grrrrrrr!

       I love that last one…I think I should paint it on my dining room wall.  I’m a little south of Westminster in Mission Viejo.  We go to Disneyland a lot (annual passes!!)…I am a native Southern Californian so I know exactly where you are!! Most of my family lives in Anaheim.
        Good luck at the doctor today~

    try turning off a bluetooth headset! disabling it is no problem, but getting it to turn off??? omg! I wind up calling the last person I talked to, so I’ve got the bluetooth in one hand and my phone in the other, pressing buttons like crazy. usually takes at least five minutes.whatever happened to the simple ON/OFF??I googled charcot foot… sounds most unpleasant. Feet and teeth… pain anywhere else is never as bad as those two places. Best of luck, do let us know how it went.hugsKim
