    Is this common for spurs to grow in one particular area over and over? And what sort of hospital/bed rest time will likely be involved?

    We did alright. Lost power for 5 days, then got it back, but only to half the house, oddly enough - appeared to be true all up and down the block; half of the outlets worked, half didn't. But we had the heat back, so that was OK. We ultimately got power back to the remainder of the house as well, but the stove (electric) and some of the other major, energy-intensive appliances still don't work. It certainly could have been worse, however; my dad just got his power back on Saturday - and I work with a number of people who live(d)? near the water, and have lost possessions and possibly homes. Glad to hear that you too were spared the worst of it!

    I do go back to this small town (it's the sailing capital) about once a year.

    Autumn is nice here just north of the Missouri River in Budweiser country. The colors (reds and yellows) of the leaves are very pronounced this year. Unfortunately, I haven't ventured far from home this season so I would have to say I don't have any enriching experiences to pass along so far.

    The scene in my profile picture is from the small town a little south of the Outer Banks where I had my accident. It is a picture of a sunrise taken from the pier that I dove off of which eventually led me to this fine community. It was the last thing I saw as an AB'd person.

    Hi Random, we did meet. You came up and introduced yourself and gave me your CC handle but I reciprocated with my real name. I sent you a PM the day after and apologized for not providing my CC handle at the time. Look at your PMs from 7/20/2012-7/21/2012 and you might be able to recall me. I'm 40ish, brown hair and eyes and a C7. I sat 2 rows behind you during the presentations and then you stopped by to say hi before it all broke up. We spoke for a minute or two. We also spoke with Dr. Young right as it was ending. Does this ring a bell?

    Good evening yes that is a bear about to "enjoy " the electric fence around our garbage cans!! We live on a creek which is a major grizzly corridor from mountain into the valley, wildlife biologists take hair samples to test their DNA so they can get more accurate count of how many differnt Grizzly inhabit an area in one month period we had 12 different grizzly going thru our property.. The interesting thing is we rarely see them they go thru after dark & return pre-dawn

    Hey Random, nice to hear from another member.
    I spend winter on the north side of Aiken. This year will be my third winter down. First year
    I was convalescent, and just too broken to do much. My passion has been horse back riding, and I'm currently attempting to condition to it. I've also just purchased a renegade chair to get out and about. What a workout it is. But that's what its all about, attempting to become stronger and more independent.
    In the past, I was an active ski enthusiast, but that has past. Been there, done that, and I just can't tolerate the cold anymore.
    I'm looking forward to a weekend in Hilton Head this October. Attending a veterinary medical conference.
    Hope your having a good summer

    Hey Randy! Just wanted to say that I hope you made it back home safely! We're planning on getting home between 8 and 9 tonight. It was great meeting you and I hope to keep in touch. And btw, I've been trying to figure it out but I feel like you are so familiar to me-like we've met before or maybe that you remind me of someone, I guess, but I can't place it. Anyway.... hope all is well!

    Pismo Beach - I lived 4 blocks north of this picture, one block from the beach. Lower left in this picture is Harry's Cocktail Lounge, the white sign next to the palm tree. That bar was packed every day, they had live music every afternoon and night, and it was full of gals in bikinis at all hours. I miss Pismo.

    Hi, Random, thanks for your kind note. No, I am not going anywhere. Sometimes my sense a humor gets carried away...I am responsible for the thread going awry, no one else, and was trying to think of a way to patch things when I got your email. On a thread like this one, which is mostly just for fun, no one should get offended by anything said. I certainly don't about anything said about me.

    I'll post something later to try to make amends. I am mostly concerned about Cass. I poked fun at her when she stuck up for scie55. I am pretty sure sci55years knew I was kidding when I called him a idiot, but I will do something to sooth that over, too. You are great to express your concern. thanks for the message.

    Hi Randy! Yes, I'm off for the summer, but haven't taken any trips as yet. My wife is working several days a week and taking a couple of classes, which she is slated to complete within the next couple of weeks. After that, we're going up to Mystic for 4 or 5 days; from there we'll decide if the remainder of the summer holds any further excursions. I have spent the last several weeks sleeping late, reading books, going to dinner to catch up with old friends and otherwise enjoying the time off - not too shabby, I've got to admit. How about yourself? What have you been up to?

    Hi Randy, I'm at UMass Amherst, and Ray Bradley from our department was one of the authors on the "Hockey stick" paper. I don't understand how anyone can deny the fact that the world is warming if they are willing to look at the facts, but too many people just hear what they want to believe. The evidence shows that the CO2 in the atmosphere is increasing at a rate that pretty well matches up with the use of fossil fuels in the last 200 years. So I guess that I am a believer!

    Yep it was written by Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Joe Perry helped him finish it and it became a huge hit for them. They are the only one's who perform it and have since the early 70's. Back then the whole band was really addicted to heavy drugs and some say he wrote it about snorting cocaine off a mirror and watching the lines disappear off the mirror as his face gets clearer but all the lyrics are stunning for someone to write at that age and as I get older I understand them more.

A Little Bored and Distressed

Hello Everyone, Does anyone happen to be at Kessler right now? I managed to hurt myself again and I'm here and could use some company. Life was looking very good: I had to retire from work and was firmly en route to my destiny as an author and inventor when I took this little side trip to a new injury. So if anyone is around I'm in morning therapy on the 2nd floor. Please look for me; my therapist is Marissa. And Wise, if there is any stem cell stuff I could do while I am here I would love to know
