    I didn't let it bother me a lot the first valve replacement; I did get the jitters a time or two, but I have to admit on the way to the hospital, I did consider the possibility that I might be looking at things for the last time. What bothers me most is the risk of a stroke related to the...

    My brother and I were laughing about that yesterday. My dad was a fighter pilot, and that's all I ever wanted to be growing up, but I was very nearsighted, so never to be. It all worked for my brother he flew mostly fighters for 20 years, retired from the AF, and flew about 20 more for Delta...

    Hot tip. There's a guy named Pruitt. He has HC experience and you can probably get him at a bargain rate. If you can't get him, raid Nebraska. We can probably come up with a few other prospects.

    Doing great. We drove over to my brother's in South Carolina for Thanksgiving. I wound up driving - felt a lot safer than my wife's driving - she still has some leftover covid problems - like balance. Got back home last night in time to stream the game and go back to the start even. It was a...

    Thanks for the encouragement; I'm so glad to have been born at a time when this technology makes so many things possible. This will be my second valve. The first was open heart, and this one will be TAVR. Not sure what the material will be this time - whether I'll want to oink or moo. The...

    The heart cath went well, and no surprises in the results. The surgeon called on the drive to check in on me and to schedule the aortic valve replacement. That will be the middle of Dec. I have to ask if the people who make the valves give out stickers or badges like some car companies do to...

    Well guys, thank you for today's distraction here and in other threads. I've got a heart catherization tomorrow, Thanksgiving travel plans, and a wife on the warpath, so thinking about almost anything else is most welcome. If all goes well I go home tomorrow afternoon with a pressure bandage...

    SUV plows down Wisconsin Christmas parade as children watch in horror

    I don't know about the rest of you, but barricades on roads trigger me especially when somebody thinks they have to dig up a road to plant utilities for a new subdivision or similar. I have to admit running down people digging up perfectly good streets (especially one of the seemingly few in...

    SUV plows down Wisconsin Christmas parade as children watch in horror

    You get the impression this guy shouldn't be allowed behind the wheel for at least one of a couple of things. Anger management or vehicle management. In either case he doesn't seem to be up to keeping pedestrians and his vehicle separate = shouldn't be allowed to drive period.

    SUV plows down Wisconsin Christmas parade as children watch in horror

    The worst thing to come from the computer and electronics revolution has been social media and all the stupidity it inspired. If they weren't so very useful, I'd argue that cameras should be eliminated from cellphones after seeing people posing time and again for selfies. We've become a...

    SUV plows down Wisconsin Christmas parade as children watch in horror

    Maybe we should actually treat some "song" lyrics as a hate crime because there seems to be quite a bit of inspiration there. It does seem a bit odd though that some people are allowed artistic license, others aren't, but it's not racist or in any way culturally divisive.

    The best start for that would be to take the hate crime statutes off the books. It's just another way of spinning up divisions. Murder is murder etc, and already on the books. Same for legislative idiots fueling the flames with laws against lynching - seems like we can all agree that lynching...

    Cultural Marxism and the Birth of Thought Crime

    The sad part is that with a lot of history saying otherwise there are still a lot of Marxist psychos who still believe. Worst, most seem young enough to have learned from history and immaturely dumb enough to believe it can work.

    President Joe Biden - Kamala Harris Administration

    Obama was a community organizer after all, and in that sense it was simply stirring divisive schiff. Organizing one side against the other, and he continued to do so in office. It's his one play, and not one he'd give up - divider rather than uniter. Obama could have been the worst president...

    President Joe Biden - Kamala Harris Administration

    Just another spin on cancel culture. Apparently leftists think they can do it unopposed when they wish and nobody else can play the game. Cancel culture is really an end to civility because in time the affected aren't going to just shrug it off.

    U.S. Government And 46 States File Antitrust Lawsuit Against Facebook

    It's funny how capitalism has always been spun as entities competing which results in lower prices and better products. In a way it's like the democracy argument; in the end a pure democracy invariably turns destructive because it is essentially mob rule and the mob wants to take out and not...
