  1. I'm a long time advocate of a low carb diet.  I had scrambled eggs with cheese for breakfast and a Greek salad for lunch.  Down 10 pounds in a month.

    Some of the East coast got a lot of wind a d rain.

    Thanks for asking and yes we made it through just fine.  A few limbs and lots of pine cones so we really did dodge that bullet.  Never lost power!

  3. You will be fine with the Rega.  I have one and a Denon DP-1250.  A couple of years back the Rega was voted the best $1000 TT.  Get a good cartridge  ( I use a Hana MC) and be done unless you want to spend a bunch of money for small returns.  Google Rega P3 reviews.

  5. Diet change starts tomorrow.  Have had success with low carb and Paleo.  Actually looking forward to losing the 10 pound bowling ball Ive been carrying around my waist.  Dieting always works better than exercise increase for me.

     

    Has anyone else noticed some commercials now feature larger folks?  The medication Jardiance ad features a very large female being treated like a rock star as she flits through a crowd.  Poor ankle, knee, and hip joints is what I think of when I see her.

  6. Speaking of pool halls I just had my table covered with tour edition cloth in a pretty dark blue.  Balls roll so much better and it holds English now.

    The two guys that stripped the old cloth, leveled the table and tighten the rails took about four hours.  Expensive but I'm pleased.

     

    The billiard room would be a good music room as its much larger than my current room.  I can't have both without compromise though.

    that was me, at the bowling alley. Climbing around in the suspended ceiling and fun stuff like that. I could go in the front of the pinsetters [where you throw the ball to], and come out the back. 

    grasshopper is so skinny he can hide under a clothesline during a down pour and not get wet!

    Any physics or chemistry teachers in  here 😂 All I do remember is " Don´t use alternating current from the socket! Otherwise, ignitable oxyhydrogen gas will be generated at both electrodes! " 🤣

    I think the best we can do is a couple of grade school graduates and I'm not sure who they are.

    I am back home , was discharged from the hospital yesterday , I need to recover first. The last 12 days have been a torture of pain for me , it has not succeeded in my medical treatment during my hospital stay to free me from the severe pain.  I was thrown out of the hospital yesterday according to the rules, the bed was needed for another patient with whose medical treatment more money is to be earned. Now my doc has to take care of me, but I can't see him until Monday morning. Until then I have no choice but to continue to endure the pain. The nerves of my intervertebral disc are so badly bruised and inflamed that it will take weeks until I get well again. S**T happens to often w/in the last years 🤔

     

    So sorry.....here's to a quick and full recovery!

  10. ***Spoiler alert***

    Watching JW 4.  More killings than ever.  A couple of nods to the old movie The Warriors with the black female DJ with the sultry voice playing No Where to Hide and Painted Black and encouraging Wicks violent end.  Reel to Reel with Maxell tapes playing the tunes.  2/3 through as it's a long one at 2 hours and 50 minutes.

    there is 1 movie  that just came out , it's  called  SISU from the studio behind John Wick  , 

    -   the John Wick  productions ,  never went as far as to show blown up bodies , but this movie does  .

     

     

    So has anyone seen Sisu?  Worth seeing?

  12. LF two days gone to Australia and me and the dog are already bored as hell.  Too damn hot for outdoor activities and I think I've watched everything on Netflix and Amazon worth watching.  Anyone watch John Wick 4 before I spend $6.99?  Two Martinis down and it's yet to make it to 6pm.

    Gonna be a long three weeks😕

    That´s it @Tarheel ? Nothing else happed w/in the last couple of month 😂

    No that's just the exciting stuff😁 My tenant is pet sitting for 3 weeks and asked me to water her plants and to feed the handicapped raccoon that comes on the back porch each night.   He's missing some toes and has babies to feed so I go over and cut up 2 apples and fill his water bowl.  LF is prepping to go to Australia on the 5th for 3 weeks with two sisters.  I'll be here with the Norwich Terrier Swanky who will likely go into mourning till she returns.  That's about it............
