I could not in good conscience make those patients wait 45+ minutes even though none of the issues were really an emergency. I did 20 minutes and got off to put out the fires.

That's really pretty cool. I haven't had to use any of my docs for telemedicine yet but if I do, I hope they are as conscientious as you. :thumb:

Discuss.

I'll do a tiny bag of crunchy once or twice a year maybe. I haven't been happy about the experience since 2010 or so.

Crunchy is the original.

I haven't had kids' cereal in years but the little lady got some Apple Jacks last night. Having some for breakfast of course, but I'm sure I'll regret it at some point.

I do remote technical support on heavy construction equipment. I also do "nightmare" technical repair jobs, in the shop.
I can do some remote diagnostics by telematics. When the technician is on site, I can connect remotely to laptop running the diagnostic software. This is usually for "problem child" repairs, like that one.
Using a Bluetooth meter, starting at the fuse, monitoring voltage until failure. We got lucky and picked the right end of the circuit to start from, after the usual troubleshooting failed to find the root cause.

Maybe puffs are an improvement?

Actually, Cheetos Puffs aren't the best out there. There are better brands.

Invoke their name three times.

Just donít eat a 6 oz. bag of Fritos or a 6 oz. bag of crunchy Cheetohs like I know some short dumpy guy did this week. :innocent:

I did. It was a let down as usual. Got rid of the crave but didnt really satisfy.

I'm debating, inside ride or outside. It's only going to be55 or so. But the wind off the lake is positively frigid.

The local trucking companies put on a parade around town today. All honking air horns, "rapping" their Jake-brakes, and flashing strobe lights. My wife and I were walking the dogs at the park when they went by, the little kid in me came out too.

ikr? Almost makes me think about moving to Malvern to get him to be my primary care physician. His partners may still decide to sell out to big pharma though. Sad!

I remember back in the day when my pre-race breakfast was Cinnamon Toast Crunch. With milk. Oh the diet was easier then.

They all count but outside counts more.

ls01 04-11-20 11:41 AM

Going outside.

Yep, seems to go that way.

Agreed, and I like PA, too, which would be a bonus; I could be convinced if we hadn't built a new house a couple years ago.

You mutha.... :notamused:

Got out for a bit. Headed out on a route that I've only ever done with the group. At some point, I thought to myself, "you know, if I did this... and then this... and then this, I could hit most of the hills that I really like to avoid." So yeah, I did that. It was dumb. But I'd do it again.

Ö but addicting. The crunchy ones, not the puffy ones.
