    More heat, go faster, and hang on tight.

    Luckily, nothing's broken.

    They don't always read the x-rays right the first time. The nice lady from the hospital said those three ribs really are broken. They don't hurt more for knowing, but they don't hurt less, either.

    During a different week a long time ago I learned that broken ribs don't necessarily hurt any worse than bruised ribs. Heal well...

    dab it lightly with tea tree oil-before removal to make removal much easier and less itchy-twitchiness(if any at all).
    dab it heavy once removed with tt oil and you've snuffed him.

    when the sucker starts flailing its legs in reverse is when you pull. it's a neat trick and i learned it just this spring.

    the bastards are only "not active" six or eight, often non-consecutive, weeks down here. a warm spell in any winter month will bring 'em out. i was bit in jan this year and many times in march. wouldn't be so bad if they didn't transmit chit like RMSF and Lyme's.

    eff the effers, every effing one of 'em.

    I learned that I start at Chris King Precision components on the 5th and that I can hang on in a Cat 1/2 road race for 5th.

    When you have a black dog with a thick coat, in tick season, the ratio of time spent hiking vs time spent combing and checking for ticks is roughly 1:2.

    Also, the Yankees offense is entirely too dependent on the long ball.

    Also also, the idea of Brodeur winning a Cup as I finished high school and another one right now (I feel old as shit) is astounding, and makes me a little giddy.

    I also learned I'm glad I'm not a farmer. Albany NWS weather summary from yesterday includes many hail reports, the worst perhaps was 1.25" continuing for 20 minutes. Can you say shredder? Or maybe it was the measured 3.5" up in Bolton. Can you say shredder plus ruined barn roof? Damn. And to think I was worried about the flowers I planted this weekend.

    I knew this already, but SF is a kickass place to ride, even if I am overgeared on a fixed.

    MY GF's ex-husband and ticks are the only things in this world that I really truly hate. They share many characterisitcs.

    IMG_2611.JPGIMG_2794.JPGIMG_2660.JPGIMG_2712.JPGIMG_2861.JPGI learned both that I am capable of rowing 11-12' wave trains using finesse and by slowing down time and missing the sleepers and the sucker holes & re-ciculating waves and that I can row for 8 solid hours into a 20mph headwind and still lift a beer.

    I also learned that they are taking composites, making tiny triangulated sandwiches, coating them with nickle, melting out the compsites and coming up with a super strong structure barely heavier then air.

    I learned that seeing a total solar eclipse from the bottom of the Grand Canyon is really moving experience!

    Looking forward to some metal work, surprisingly.

    Good to be back!

    Thanks, man!
    FWIW "Garroisms" has been put to sleep for awhile while I catch up on everything.
    Busy with no big adventures on the horizon................
    I got to "Learn" a bunch of able bodied people that when your sister hikes out due to pure terror and you wrench your wrist falling out of your boat not to write off that cripple with the 14" forearms...........He can row your boat out, no problem - they were forced to watch me step up to the plate and rock it.

    I also learned (as did my Wife) that she could rally class 5 in a IK, although she got to see the river bottom once.......scared her bad for a few days but she got back in the saddle & killed it!

    The original prototype for superglue was invented by a Kodak engineer back in the 40s, but didn't work well for the intended purpose, which was clear gunsights I think. Years later it was tested for aircraft canopies and they didn't like it, but in the 60s one of the original things that was noticed about it, (that it held tissue together and stopped bleeding very well) was remembered and it was submitted for FDA approval for that purpose. The military started using it without approval during the Vietnam war. It was credited with saving many lives,as it helped seal wounds so that soldiers could get to a hospital before bleeding out. The FDA didn't approve it until many years later, (90s maybe) and now they call it Dermabond.
