Update on lawn tractor. Recall I have 18 year old lawn tractor that recently started to run rough and burn oil. I finally found a local guy who does repairs. I explained situation to him and he laughed, said no role for repair. It’s a goner. Sad!

Well they need eating up. They'll only go to waste otherwise.

We sit down on a weekend morning, agree on dinners for the week, and then shop. If we eat the same old stuff, it’s because we planned on it and leftovers get included in the plan or frozen. I do 75% of the cooking and 90% of the cleanup and I can improvise pretty well, but I like to know what I’m doing that night. Tonight is a sort of a NiÁoise salad.

Tonight will be interesting. Doing a local "training" crit, the A race, with some people who are actual pros and will inevitably chew me up and spit me out. However, I've definitely outgrown the B race based on last week. Wish there was a B+ race.

This is mostly unfortunate because I really only raced for the prime and winner's prizes, yogurt, and the chances of taking home more delicious food have gone out the window.

IMO and IME you don't talk about jaw pain, you do something about it. You donít get a bunch of second chances. My brother was having ďheartburnĒ when playing tennis.

If it is serious, it wonít warn you forever. See a cardiologist. A village GP may be a fine doctor, but is in no position to help you properly.

Cardiologist as soon as I return from Belize.
Thanks

Are you calling our @datlas a village GP?

Editing photos and came across this from a few miles short of the summit of Thompson Pass, Idaho side. The final 5 miles averages 7.1%. The final 2 averages 7.7%. Ruling grade of over 13%.

They generally get eaten for lunches. I was more puzzled that the proposed solution to a complaint of the same ol' same ol' was... the stuff that we had two days ago.

After consulting with a RN friend, I will postpone Belize until after being checked. Thanks again.

It generally falls to me to plan the dinners and to cook them - my wife isn't terribly good in either of those capacities. I get downright frustrated with her in the kitchen - she just doesn't know how to move around in one and she's always getting in the way when she tries to help. I don't think that having two kids at home full-time during the summer is helping much in terms of variety, either. I've been itching to try new stuff but it's hard to scrape together the time and energy to think of meals, research recipes/ingredients and then get them on the table.

Nah, Iím talking about the cute doc in Mexico that seeds was too enchanted by to argue with.

I rarely know what I am having for dinner when I wake up in the morning. Sometimes I know by lunch time. But usually I donít know until after work. Tonight I found a pompano and fired up the grill.

I always cooked, but the kitchen duties devolved on me completely during long run of years when I would pick up daughter at daycare and my wife would get home late and starved for baby time. Like you, I am also way more efficient and understand ingredients a little better, so it has worked out now for about 28 years. Where I fall down is in the area of imagination and research and my wife is great at finding recipes for me.

I have actually forgotten how hard it is to cook with kids and I’m ashamed of the ****e we used to eat when my daughter was small and picky. It helped to get her involved in cooking a bit, but we tended to default to the crap she would eat, viz, white food. She’s quite a good cook now and feeds her no-good boyfriend like a king.

She was cute and I was enchanted-- she even speaks some broken English! But how much can a lay person argue with a doctor? Instead I went online, came back here, and consulted a couple nurse friends. And left a voice message for my wife's cardiologist. And cancelled the Belize trip.

seedsbelize 07-02-19 06:57 PM

It seems, with static angina, it can go on for years. With non-static, not so much. So I guess it's good to get a baseline and move forward from there. Initially I was thinking I could let it go indefinitely, since my only symptoms came with hard exertion. Apparently that is not always the case.

Thatís too bad about Belize. Probably a wise move however.

Kids are a pain in the ass to cook for - it's hard to devote time and attention to the act of cooking and then there's the pickiness. Both of my kids seem to go through phases and, amazingly, they're both being a little more open now; I don't know how long it'll last, so I feel that I need to capitalize on it and expand the menu while I can.

seedsbelize 07-02-19 07:12 PM

Cooking is not my cup of tea. And neither is cleaning up. I grew up in the fifties and sixties, in a family of German and Pennsylvania Dutch background, as the only boy with three sisters.
