had My discogram today and my gastro doc followup Monday.

Disc is torn and leaking but MRI showed the tear. Leak is a new finding although suspected. Options to be discussed with Neurosurgeon on Oct 11th. Pain was not produced however which makes me worry the culprit was not found. Leaking from disc on to nerves can cause the pain but I was told by 18 months that should have stopped but Leaking and pain is still present after 2 years.

Gastro issue remains a mystery a drug was prescribed that might help with my idiopathic abdominal issue.. similar to but wasn't called IBS. Called functional Bowel Syndrome. I think they're making stuff up. Without clothes I'm now 166 with my stick like legs.

Out of nowhere, a training wheel feel of the son's bike without his knowledge, but he just kept riding along as if nothing happened.

Until my wife announced that he was doing so well without his training wheel, at which time he realized what happened, veered left into the grass, and then crashed.

We were farm kids. Dad put us in the bike; then grabbed the seat from behind.and ran to get us going. We never knew when he let go. We were riding across the large front yard.

Don't forget to take a poop as well.

This is why I weigh myself AFTER morning routine including shower but before getting dressed. Me being a regular guy, it takes that into account.

The body needs a better way to process cheesecake and chocolate layer cake. :mad:

Best way I know is to go for a bike ride (or a walk) 1 hour after dietary indiscretion. Burns the sugar off as fuel.

Sounds like a plan. Plus I can tell Mrs BD the plan is doctor recommended. :D

When I ride the mtb I always take the bigger Camelbak. It's between 8 and about 11 pounds depending on how much water I put in it. I carry a spare tube and those tubes are heavy. When I rode a 26" wheel mtb, the spare tube wasn't much bigger than a road tube.

I have successfully removed ice cream from my diet. It was once a favorite food, as was apple pie. I suppose I could learn how to make a pie. My mom left us and all that great food went with her. She made great pies.

Mojo31 09-15-22 01:36 PM

We are having apple pie with ice cream this weekend at a friend's lake house. :love:

It's an old line I stole from Calvin Trillin, who was trying to justify his eating habits as not having caused all that much weight gain.

Beautiful experience yesterday. I was riding through a valley east of Penn State that has a large Amish population. The one room school houses were letting out for the afternoon. I ended up riding behind five children for about a half mile. They were all probably 9 years old or younger. They were riding those bike-like scooters dressed in traditional clothing. I looked down and noticed all, including the two young girls, were barefoot. At the east end of the valley they peeled off to their respective homes that are close to each other. First, one boy went right, stopping to retrieve the mail from the box. Then a girl went left across the road. The final two boys and a girl went right into the last house before the woods began. I imagined them meeting up the next morning for the trip to school.

2.75" day before yesterday, drizzle yesterday, 2.5" today, and if the pattern holds, we'll get more this evening. There is now standing water in the yard.

The cable was not run thru it, but you couldn't see it thru the hole in the shifter housing. When it was opened up, it became pretty obvious.

Don't like how much rear housing there is, and will tidy that up later. Probably invert the stem when my back stops hurting.

The Sora bike is now a R7000 105 bike, replete with power meter.

Yes, ODI.

Skipped the carbon bar and pop of color for now.

Wife's happy to have the bike, tools and work stand out of her kitchen.

Benson has been known to shut up noisy neighborhood coyotes.
