I agree but now that I have one, if it ever needs to be replaced I will have to cough up the money.

Just about the time I decided it wasn't, I realized that it is, indeed, an ocular migraine. So I guess I'mma stay here at work for a while. especially since it's decided to expand right into my focal point.

Should be gon ie in 20 minute or so. The first one freaked me right the f*** out, but everything I read on them says they're nothing to worry about. Just seems like a bad idea, driving at night while having one.

Thatís a classic migraine aura. Ocular migraine is a retinal thing, rare and potentially ugly.

For the whisky drinkers: I picked this up last week after seeing it at the LLS and reading favorable stuffs about it online. The favorable stuffs is right - not too shabby for ~$35 bucks. Supposedly made with cocktails in mind, but I find it more than acceptable neat, too.

Stuff in that really high-end space seems to be priced with an eventual 50% Off sale in mind, or so it seems to me. If not, well, I find it hard to imagine that there isn't something out there that'll do at least 98% as well for half as much.

1: As in bringing the pulley closer to the cog?

2: Ignore this if you know this already, but Shimano wants the guide pulley slightly outboard of the centerline of the smallest cog. Giving it a little more room to overshift makes everything a lot happier.

Long cage derailleurs will exacerbate misalignment, for sure.

They are also are never happy backpedaling when in the largest few cogs, at least with 1x MTB systems.

And then it quit altogether. As darkness came on, I searched my laptop for downloaded books. "A Farewell to Arms" was downloaded a day or two ago. Another classic, or so I am told.

Thank you for the helpful tip to locate Philadelphia.
Velo Vol ancestors lived in Luzerne County for over 100 years, until my grandfather left there, as a ute.

My ancestors settled in what was to become Chester County, when they got off the boat in 1734 or thereabouts.

I have bought at least 3 of my bikes for that much.

The bread factory smelled really good. Sadly white bread is not healthful.

Rail pic of the day. Man, I miss hanging out on this platform and trainspotting.

UP 4393, BN 2824, and I couldn't figure out what the unit behind the UP loco was. First hit was Soo 6007, and I was surprised I didn't get another shot of it. Then I figured out that it was CEFX 6007 by the time I'd taken this pic and the big ol' Soo Line logo had been wiped from the sides already.

I had never heard of the latter, so I looked it up. Per Mayo, the term "Ocular Migraine" is used for both aura and Retinal Migraine. This is DEFINITELY the former, though - the first time I got one, I thought there was something on or in one of my eyes, so I closed one at a time to see which one. It was in both. "MY GOD!!! IT'S IN MY BRAIN!!!!!", I thought. "I must be having a STROKE!!!!"

So I went over to a coworker to start up a conversation, thinking if I were speaking gibberish, she'd let me know. Silly, I know. And I wasn't - no more than usual, anyhow.

So I googled 'visual distortion' and the third result described it perfectly, right down to the whole 'lasting about 20 minutes' part. Never accompanied by a headache, either, and I know because as a ute I used to get migraines.

You have to eat other stuff, but it you do, it's not UNhealthful.

I see no platform.

I do my trainspotting out in the wild, as nature intended.

I never wear a jacket on the bike unless I go into the mountains in winter. Mrs. John found a cheap ski jacket at a thrift store. I've used it but if I'm climbing I need to take it off and it's too big to put in a back pocket so I have to bring the large Camelbak. On the mtb I'm wearing the Camelbak anyway so I can bring extra clothes.

Instead I take layers that I can roll up and carry for the climbs. I descended @ 22 degrees with baselayer, jersey, vest and hooded windbreaker (another thrift store find) and I was fine.

Velo Vol 02-03-22 10:42 PM

datlas what do you say to patients, maybe special ones with issues, who ask about taking extra vitamin D or even getting tested for it?
