My VW is 6 years old and going strong, my wifeís Acura is the same and I swear that thing will make 400k. Iíve looked at the TLX a couple of times, but want to wait another year at least before getting rid of my VW. 6 months of car payment = new bike costs.

My wife's Macan is 4 years old, and the warranty has expired. I've always been very leery of owning the Porsches out of warranty, but this one only has 40k on it and it has been problem free, so we're going to give it another 2 years at least. She's said that when the time comes to move it, she'd like to get an RDX since we don't need the size of the MDX. Since I'm wanting to slow down the work load in the next year or so, we are likely done with the price of Porsches from here on out since it's been my income funding that extravagance. :(

Oh, and that time that the drain holes on the sunroof clogged up because he'd parked it under a tree that dropped a lot of small debris, and there was a rainstorm. Back to the detailer to get all the water out before it molded!

But I don't blame Honda for the issues we had. It was a 1986 car, fer cripes sake! For the age it was, it was very reliable!

My wife had a similar vintage Legend when we started dating that she bought used. It was fairly beat up and a manual even. Loved the 2-door Legend in its day.

Amazing outcome. Medical helicopter crashed next to a church in Delco. Four people on board all basically ok. The pilot somehow managed to not hit the utility poles and wires that were all around.

A woman that I know with Alzheimer's was found unresponsive today. She lives in a minimum care center. Rushed to the hospital and found to have Covid. They think she fell ill and became dehydrated from not eating and drinking.

Yeah, flu or a urinary tract infection will do that too. Hope she pulls through!

Iíve wondered about five times in the last three weeks. Whatever it is, hope itís mild.

She did test positive for Covid. She's getting liquids and treatment but I haven't gotten an update recently.

My MIL had dementia and was prone to UTIs. We made a few trips to the hospital.

You mean "consult." It pays better.

I am indebted to demented folks with assorted acute issues for teaching me a big chunk of what I know about internal medicine and neurology. Young @datlas probably feels the same way.

My sister's whole family each had five days of heavy sinus stuff. And that was all.

What is the name of that non-medicinal depression treatment you were involved with?

I thought I would miss the four seasons. But I don't. It's really nice to not have to deal wit cold anymore. We have wet and hot, and dry and cooler. That's enough.

seedsbelize2 01-11-22 07:41 PM

Tangerine season. Eating 6-8 per day.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation. Mark George and I were the first to use it for that application.

I never did a VA rotation, but I visited a few and heard many stories.

Daughter and husband had it. He had an unpleasant upper respiratory thing for a week She had a sore throat and daily fevers, which are still going on over two weeks later, poor baby.

Been doing some low-cadence, high resistance, workouts on the trainer and they’re increasing my strength, but causing piriformis syndrome. Quite the trade-off.

Drank a coffee and instantly felt better. I get caffeine head aches sometimes but this didnít feel like that, I felt off and like I was getting ill.

Feeling fine now but my shoulders are super sore, like sore to the touch. I donít know what thatís about. Hopefully it doesnít get worse.

what does that feel like?

I might have to get me one of these, I always loved those multi pen pens, having one be a pencil also is next level awesome! This site claims it can handle .5 lead as well as .7, I hope that's true, although .7 only isn't a dealbreaker.

Movie Trailers? Harsh realm.

How about a music video to cheer you up. On this day in 1986 the Pet Shop Boys scored their first UK #1 hit with this number:

Stinging-aching neurogenic pain in the bottom of the foot, up the back of the calf, and a little bit on the posterior thigh, and doing a fairly convincing imitation of an L-4 disc. It varies a bit from attack to attack. Last week it was over the lateral calf and into the web space of the first two toes.
