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

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.. it's been a rough one here. We lost my Aunt (Dad's younger sister) Tuesday night she lost her battle with cancer. So funeral tomorrow. My daughter just found out she has covid. So no visit with them today.
My dad is doing well with the kemo treatments. He actually seemed like his old self yesterday.
Gotta get caught up now.

Thank you Joe Rogan. Still with the Ivermectin? There's a vacine...No no, nothing a good bleeding won't fix. Maybe some leaches... politics... christ in a hand cart

lol a Kaiser? You are glutton for punishment! Check out, Cold War motors, on you tube. Guys name is Scott. He daily drives a kaiser/Frazer in the summer. And does some unbelievable sheetmetal work. There is an older guy in his town that has a collection of kaiser and he tours the collection.

I sympathize. Only daughter moved overseas right after college in 2013 and returned this summer… to Seattle.

Do doctors find information submitted by their patients to be helpful in improving their practice? I'm happy to help, where needed.

Did you ever get a satisfaction survey from a medical practice?

I'm talking about medical discussions of ailments and treatments, not whether or not the nurse was courteous.
