Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Ouch.

Appointment today to find out what my latest PSA level is. I don't know why he can't just send me an email, or a text, I'm not new to this.

Noticed this leaving a grocery store this morning. Not bad for a tad over 5.25 years.

Eyeball penetration is complete and it hurt like a MF. Some do and some don't but this one did.

The good news is that some of the bleeding/swelling has gone down do my new medicine must be working. Doc said that if the swelling continues to decrease that he may be able to space the injections out a little instead of every 4 weeks.

They'd have to put me under for that. I can't even keep my eyes open for the pressure test during an eye exam.

I feel for you.

Update on scheduling my disc diagnostic test. Called twice since yesterday and left 2 messages. Result? Bupkis. I am losing faith in this place. Very odd consultations. I don't think they want to do the procedure.
I could write a book. It would have lots of profanity in it.

IKR?

Engaging Velo Vol in this nonsense is assuming risk many of us refuse to partake in.

To be fair, I never crossed the Pacific driving from San Francisco to San Diego, either.

But CA IS on the west coast. Utah is decidedly not.

My wife is such a good victim. She got her flu shot today and they told her no alcohol for three days. They told me nothing of the sort when I got mine a few weeks ago. But I'm being blamed nonetheless, because I and another friend encouraged her to get it done.
Does alcohol make the flu shot not work? Or cause any other bodily function issues. I wish I coud say I'm asking for a friend

Our bandwidth has been operating in kbps range, and our independent distributor is deaf to my complaints. We're guaranteed the lightening quick speed of 5 kbps. So, rather than spend my time staring at a white screen, I'm gong to step off for awhile. Give the other customers my share.
