All the best to you Bob.  I'm sure the surgery will be great, and you'll be back to your old self in a couple of months.

I was a bit luckier; I think.  I was bucking a maple I downed and afterward I started getting lightning bolts down my left leg.  I had something similar years before sciatica, which turned out to be caused by sitting on a fat wallet.  That was 30-35 years ago and to this day I never sit on my wallet.  Anyway, this recent bout went on for about 6 months. It was so bad I could not sit down on either cheek.  I had to lay down on my stomach to avoid agony. I saw 4 specialists and they just offered my meds.  Then in the summer I was remodeling my son's bathroom in 90 something, heat.  My bladder was telling me to pee but nothing was coming out.  The first doc I called offered an appointment 2 weeks out.  I told her, maam if I have to wait 2 weeks I'll be dead and you'll have a missed appointment. My wife called a specialist and had me in in an hour,  After a bunch of tests, he diagnosed a bladder infection, but didn't know the cause.  He set me up for a bunch of exploratory procedures, front and rear.  Anyway, he gave me antibiotics for a urinary tract infection which worked like a charm.  I was peeing that night.

The crux of the story, the back and leg pain I had endured for 6 months, was gone the next day.  Gone, no pain sitting, lying down, none that day and none since.  None of the back docs could find anything, because it was my bladder pressuring a nerve near my spine.  Ultimately, they found a non cancerous growth in my bladder which caused a blockage and the infection.  I don't know how but he lanced it and removed it.  And yes I was out cold for the duration of the inspection.

We had our Grand Caravan in the shop for Transmission issues.  They diagnosed a new Transmission at $6800.  We said no.   Just put the fluid back in and we'll take it home.  Well, I guess they wanted to make sure we had near future transmission issues because the thing leaks now.  A drop every 5-10 seconds or so.  Hopefully they did not do this on purpose but it just seems weird word.


Sloppy gasket replacement or leaky drain plug?  They may not have replaced the gasket since it tends to stick to the pan or frame. If the cracked it removing the pan, it would leak. Try tightening the bolts.  Could also be a sloppy fluid replacement and a pool sitting somewhere on the frame or engine. Possibly overfilled and the excess is forced out. If you can get underneath to check out the source?   More likely 1-2 or 3 above. Take it back in and tell them they caused they leak.  Better staring looking to trade it and hopefully the issues don't rise up if they test drive.

Both weather guessers were wrong....high 90's.....peaked at 98F to be exact.  Wifey we suggested it would be good day to test the AC for the season.  She getting cagey in her approach.

More of the same tomorrow.

The weather guessers are arguing. Some say low 80's some low 90's.  Either way I think I'm Florida with the constant afternoon thunderstorms.

By the way, that's a heck of a story.

He may well have been a young senior and took the year off to mature a bit more.  Based on that article, I suspect he's been in the weight room everyday.

That was likely because white scored last in a tie bout,

Dake was a great wrestler in his first and soph (2011) years, but it was nowhere near his peak that we see today.  He had 4 losses up to that point including an upset by LeValley, Bucknell in the EIWA final that year.  Even though he was a 4xer, and had 2 titles by that time, its not a complete surprise he lost to an older, more experienced wrestler.  There are plenty of wrestlers that excel at freestyle but are merely good at folkstyle.

Plumbers use high pressure water streams to lase paths for underground water pipes rather than dig up an entire year, si0dewealk, driveway.

I've got sandy loam, so it easily breaks down with water pressure.  I just have to be careful to not get too far ahead of the tube.  Squirt bash squirt bash

Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood morning everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lawn. Altering some grade and prepping for seed. And attempting to get a 4" pipe under a sidewalk for a drain.

Have a splendid day word!

Doing the same with a 4" pipe for roof drains.  I cut a 45 on the end of the PVC pipe.  I then bashed it laterally with a 5 lb sledge against a piece of 2x8 about 8 inches long.  I used the jet spray off a hose to soften the dirt ahead of the pipe and gave it a few more bashes. The water flushes out the dirt and then repeat.  Keep your fingers crossed they didn't bury large rocks or excess cement under the sidewalk.  Mine was pavers so I had to go deep enough to get under the rock fill.  The angle cut on the PVC cuts fairly nicely. I kept the long edge on top to support the dirt above when I sprayed.
