The Divide

Monday, October 05, 2015      17 comments

We had a very interesting Black Cab tour of Belfast. They claim the Troubles are over, but they really are not. There is a huge wall surrounding the Catholic enclave. At night they close three gates and have a check point in the open area. O... Read more

Good Time In Galway!

Our big attraction here was the Cliffs of Mohar. The morning started out with a heavy fog. We had to traverse the most narrow, winding road in all of Ireland. It was incredible how close we came to other vehicles. One bus even had to bac... Read more

My Trip Update

Wednesday, September 23, 2015      15 comments

I never slept on my overnight flight to The UK. It didn't seem to affect me too much. I was ready to start seeing things right away. I was grateful for my fitness level hauling around two heavy bags through two airports up and down stairs to... Read more

My New Shoes

Thursday, September 17, 2015      12 comments

I had never heard of these shoes before until I saw them on sale. I couldn't imagine paying $180 dollars for a pair of shoes. Then I tried them on and $90 was looking like a real bargain. Called Hoka One, I forget what type these are: Read more

Another bad night of many. Just in too much pain to find a way to get comfortable. I am so dead tired I fall asleep as soon as I hit the pillow. But I quickly wake up again and so goes the cycle. In some ways I think the new medication ... Read more

It wasn't my keyboard that was the trouble, it's Sparkpeople, I can't type anywhere on it. Strange as it worked fine this morning!! In other weirdness, the fancy Tumi mouse is working again, but not very well lol. Sometimes I feel I should j... Read more

Painful Day..

Friday, September 04, 2015      11 comments

I had a rough night. The pain was so bad I tried every position imaginable, even on my wrecked shoulders which hurt less because the pain in the hip and back was so bad it overrode it. Nothing worked. It was the kind of pain that made you wan... Read more

Metis dance & fiddle music. Absolutely loved going to the fiddle fest and hope to do so again next year. I tried to clean the filter on one of my hepa filter fans. Incredible how much dark cloudy brown filth came out of it! I had to do... Read more

Dude's gotta Look Spiffy! More jiggling then I would prefer, but at least its reasonably clear. I managed to take Windows 10 off no problem except my Google Chrome wouldn't work. Downloaded it again then it was fine. The big hassle wa... Read more

I was phoned by the Xeljanz people three times this morning to get it sorted away that they will deliver the drug to me this coming Thursday morning. I mentioned I will be leaving the country for a month, but they would not give me an extra bot... Read more

September Free

Wednesday, August 26, 2015      9 comments

My partner and I had a 53% game in bridge today, neither of us were on top of our game, so I don't feel so bad. She had to cancel our only game left before my trip in September. My mentor also cancelled all our games, so that leaves with no b... Read more
