Stop in and meet ohyeah, a funny lady from Raleigh, who really needs her own home here. After the miles she's accumulated zooming thru GB on a daily basis, she really needs a place to put her feet up and relax. Welcome to your new home, ohyeah!

Good morning ohyeah!

Woke up before midnight last night. Completed my posts and took a 3 hour nap. The med's (percodan) is making me very sleepy. Like the feeling after staying up for an all nighter.

Had an omelet Western style for brekky. Watched several Law & Order episodes. 12 AM PST is the last day Netflix will stream the series. A phone call to Netflix said they may extend the contract. Saw the many episodes into the 12th season. Now it's time for other shows.

The first order of business was to drive to the resident orthopedist at the hospital. Have an late Friday morning appointment with the surgeon that will operate on the right hip replacement.

This is not the op, it has been more than six months since my last visit. Dr wants to refresh me on the procedure and what to expect on the days of recovery and etc.

Took a pleasant ride along the CT River Hwy to Cushman, NH which is a hamlet of the Town of Dalton, NH (pop: 979) then crossed the steel bridge into Gilman, VT.

Gilman was a mill village for the workers of the Gilman Paper Company since the 1880's. The paper mill offered heat for free in a big pipe under the main street for residents to have free heat in their company built tract homes.

The mill was bought and sold several times. The last being Durango Paper Co. Many left the mill being owed back pay, retirement, and benefits. A bit more info is found in this link.

The village of Gilman, VT is part of [L=]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunenburg,_Vermont]Lunenburg, VT.[/L] The 2000 census gives the pop: 1,328. Households are 516 w/366 families in town.

Returned home via US Rt2 in VT. Lots of color in the hills and mtns. Some silver maples by the river have hints of lemon & lime or fire orange and red. Have my heart on a shot of multicolored leaves lining both sides of the CT River.

Civil twilight is 6:15 AM EDT. Night is 6:55 PM.

Sunrise: 6:44 AM. Set: 6:26 PM.

Length of day: 11h 43m. Length of visible light: 12h 40m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 50° (10°C), the high to be 72° (22°C) in mostly clear skies.

Have a fabulous day!

Good afternoon Ohyeah :: HUGS :: Boy, the Patriots had a really bad game last night! What an almost waste of three hours. In the afternoon, I did get in a walk. Found I had some pain in the right side, but it did not increase during the walk, and the left hip pain never showed up. Went a mile. Was thinking of doing more, but decided to stick to my plan and not do more. Found my right knee got stiff and sore last night from some known arthritis. This morning the upper hamstrings are sore! Glad I held it to a mile. With it showering out, I might not get a walk in today, but with the soreness, that might not be a bad thing. Will walk if the weather lets me. Know the walks will help the low back issue which is still just as sore as it was. At least one issue seems to be resolving however.

Good morning ohyeah!

My neighbor called at 7:30 AM yesterday to dbl check the time and to make sure the oral surgery was still on. Had forgotten to switch the ringer on. The answering machine took the message.

Called his house and his wife said he was on his way up the mtn to visit me. Went outdoors and talked w/him about the time to leave. He commented w/praise on the new wildflower section that is beginning to blossom.

We left early to the dental office. Mentioned to my neighbor of the north the way the office mgr misunderstood the last visit and mistakenly said my Ins no longer covers this dental procedure.

He opened his glove, asked me to remove the Bible, and to read out loud Proverbs 17:27. "The one who has knowledge uses words with restraint, and whoever has understanding is even-tempered. 28: Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues."

Arrived at the office, filled the forms, took it nicely that the mgr said we never bill, co-payment must be paid. Gave them their foolish $44 and change, and had a seat beside my friend.

Was called into the op room quickly. The Dr had four female assistants to help him and ease my anxiety. They took my vitals and attached 2 electrodes to monitor my heart.

Did not even ask what the BP or pulse was. Knew it was high. The anesthesiologist missed the first attempt at a vein. Then got it right on my left hand. With a #20 needle, it was uncomfortable.

Soon the Vicodin and another drug that its name is forgotten was used began to take effect. Have little recollection other than four women looking at me smiling.

In under an hour they said the procedure was completed. Just as was told me, it truly felt like a mere 5 minutes passed w/no memory of the oral surgery.

My gums and jaw are very sore, swollen,and hurting. Rec'd a Rx of 20 percodan that cost me an amazing 18¢ for the entire script on my AARP plan. Was very surprised at this low price and most thankful.

Returned home took a 3 hour nap and plan to take it easy for a few days. Will phone the Orthopedic office today for a hip replacement surgery appointment asap. Am so thankful that phase one is out of the way.

Civil twilight is 6:13 AM EDT. Night is 6:57 PM.

Sunrise: 6:42 AM. Set: 6:28 PM.

Length of day: 11h 45m. Length of visible light: 12h 43m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 56° (13°C), the high to be 75° (24°C) in mostly skies.

Have a wonderful day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Went out at 4:52 AM to look for the ISS. Did see lots of fog. The Earth was in the 70's (24°C) while the air dropped to 48° (9°C). Will be lots of fog with the warm days and cool nights. The ISS returns at 5:38 AM.

The sun burned the fog off mid morning. There was the annual 2 days giant Lions Car Show in Littleton. Went two y/ago. My hip could tolerate walking to see 100's of classic, muscle, and antique vehicles.

Drove to the summit of Mt Prospect in Weeks State Park. Saw long time hiker Al and stopped to talk. His 14 y/o companion animal, blind from cataracts passed away two weeks ago.

His dog Lady was a Schipperke. A very handsome dog that weighed 12 lbs. We swapped dog loss stories and tales of joy having them in our lives.

The summit was packed w/locals and tourists visiting for the first time. The stucco finished lodge 30' x 70' (9.1 by 21.3 meters) could use some exterior work. Some areas of the front facade are falling off.

420 acres around and on the summit were purchased in 1910. The lodge was finished in 1913. The entire second floor is the living room. Its many large picture windows are most unusual for the era. Balconies take full advantage of the lodge's mountain-top setting, providing dramatic views of the surrounding scenery.

Massive fieldstone fireplaces stand at either end of the living room. According to one popular story, the large moose head over the west fireplace was a gift from President Theodore Roosevelt. Another story said the President shot it on the property.

The floor and trim in the room, as well as the original furniture, are dark oak. Signed photographs of many dignitaries are displayed on the walls; among them are William Taft, Herbert Hoover, Theodore Roosevelt, and Marshall Joffre of France.

The fieldstone tower in front of the house, listed in the National Historic Lookout Register, was originally built as both an observatory and water tower. At 56 feet (17m) high, its observation deck affords spectacular views of three states and Canada.

Civil twilight is 6:12 AM EDT. Night is 6:59 PM.

Sunrise: 6:41 AM. Set: 6:30 PM.

Length of day: 11h 49m. Length of visible light: 12h 46m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 54° (12°C), the high to be 80° (27°C) in mostly skies.

Have a 10:30 appointment for oral surgery. My neighbor will drive and return me home.

Have a pleasant day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Had a fabulous early morning watching female MMA bouts of famous champions and contenders. Particularly of Tecia Torres fighting out of Fall River, MA. She is only 5 ft 1 in (1.55 m) and weighs 115 lb (52 kg; 8.2 st) in the strawweight division.

She is known as "The Tiny Tornado." Her fighting style is muay thai along w/karate. She is 25 y/o w/black belts in karate and taekwondo, with a blue belt in Brazilian jiu jitsu. Tecia Torres is 4-0 w/all 4 by decisions.

Took a drive to my visit my pal the meat mgr in Whitefield. Best deal was deli sliced pastrami for a mere $4.99. Wrapped it in newspaper and drove north back on US Rt 3

US Rt 3 begins in Cambridge, MA and goes through NH to its terminus near the Fourth Connecticut Lake at the Canadian border. Very scenic, rural, with plenty of foliage and lots of moose 30 minutes before dusk.

Drove thru the open gate up to the summit of Mt Prospect. Hoped for a super photo op of the views from Weeks State Park. There is a photo link right under the name of the state park.

Too much haze from the sun baking the air. The high was a gorgeous 78° (25°C), not a cloud in the sky w/a pleasing 4 mph (6.4 kph) from the SSW.

Returned home for a wonderful pastrami sammie, w/homegrown tomatoes, leaf lettuce, onions, cukes on multigrain flatbread.

Am listening to the Sox crush the Yank's 10-1 w/our new to the team, 7 rookie players. Will return to the outdoors and the sun right after my posts.

Civil twilight is 6:11 AM EDT. Night is 7:01 PM.

Sunrise: 6:40 AM. Set: 6:32 PM.

Length of day: 11h 52m. Length of visible light: 12h 50m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 50° (10°C), the high to be 80° (26°C) in clear skies w/plenty of sun.

Have a splendid day!

Good afternoon Ohyeah :: HUGS :: Well, I got half the lawn done yesterday without too much discomfort. First time in a while that has happened! Went out after dinner and walked up and down a few neighboring streets for 1/2 to 3/4 mile total with some discomfort, but not at the levels I have been having. Am hoping that is the start of getting back on my feet!

With such a nice weekend, I hope you get to the beach one more time!

Good morning ohyeah!

Took a drive around my nearby area in Granby, VT yesterday morning. It is 39.1 square miles (101.2 km2), yet had an amazing population of just 86 people, 33 households, and 26 families residing in the town in 2000. During the 2010 census, 88 resided in town.

The quaint town has a one room school house, (One can scroll on my link to see 6 more pix) a general store, Post Office w/a wooden sign, and a rugged brick high school, that was built from the alumni funds.

The three building Main St is complete w/a Congregational Church, a bench seat, and the old cemetery that has Roger's Rangers', the Green Berets of Colonial America, buried from our Revolutionary War. Rural New England at its finest.

Plenty of colors, yet the peak of the color remains several days away. Day temps yesterday are 74° (23°C) and nights are 49° (9°C). Spend 60 minutes enjoying the ultraviolet B (UVB) rays that produce natural vitamin D.

Getting late Sept strawberries, tomatoes, and have a half cup of highbush blueberries ripening on one lagging plant. Did some garden maintenance, watched the bees collecting pollen, the grasshoppers, caterpillars, and a rabbit eating my lawn. Peace, quiet, and relaxing.

Civil twilight is 6:10 AM EDT. Night is 7:03 PM.

Sunrise: 6:39 AM. Set: 6:34 PM.

Length of day: 11h 55m. Length of visible light: 12h 53m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 45° (7°C), the high to be 79° (26°C) in clear skies w/lots of sun later.

Have a tremendous day!

Good morning Ohyeah :: HUGS :: No walking yesterday, will try mowing part of the yard today and see how that goes. The front is really overgrown! If that does OK, I will try some just plain old vanilla walking. Will try some distance driving this weekend. Going to head up to Portsmouth for a bit of shopping.

Good morning ohyeah!

Left early w/my camera in the hopes of getting some super foliage shots on the way to Littleton. Still have some days to go before the peak of the fall foliage. Will keep my eyes on the leaves every day.

Bought at the market were large red bell peppers $1.25 a lb, green beans $1.68 a lb, peaches 20¢ ea, a huge stalk of celery $1.08, pink grapefruit 95¢ ea, limes 5/$1, lemons 3/$2, green leaf lettuce, and great plump, firm, juicy grapes $2.28 a lb.

Visited my pal at Rite Aid. Asked him to see if he can order some special Ale for me. It is named Samuel Addams Rebel IPA. Love great ale and want to try this one.

Drove to Whitefield to my pals grocery store. Bought some store made lean sausage, two thick chicken breasts for $2.29 a lb and imported ham on sale for $3.99 a lb.

Stopped at Subway in Whitefield for a 6" white egg & bacon on flatbread w/all the veggies, plus extra lettuce and spinach. Rec'd a 20 oz French Vanilla coffee w/it. All for $3.27 w/tax, the brekky special everyday.

Also stopped at Shaws to purchase broccoli crowns for 99¢ a lb. It is seldom that low in northern NH.

Returned home to water the tomato plants. It was 36° (2°C) last night and the plants are looking extremely droopy. Also did garden maintenance. The high was 68° (20°C) in mostly sunny skies.

Made some homemade chicken soup with diced celery, onions, carrots, cubes of a chicken breast with bay leaves and basil added to the water. Boiled that baby for 2.5 hours in the crock pot until the celery was soft and carrots were al dente. Had two bowls for lunch.

Civil twilight is 6:09 AM EDT. Night is 7:05 PM.

Sunrise: 6:38 AM. Set: 6:33 PM.

Length of day: 11h 58m. Length of visible light: 12h 56m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 41° (5°C), the high to be 74° (23°C) in clear skies w/lots of sun.

Have a delightful day!

Good morning Ohyeah :: HUGS :: Still no change today. Looking like rain today so I will wait for tomorrow to try and do a little walking. Want to see if that shot has helped at all. Hope to figure that out by the end of the weekend.

Looks like you got some heavy rain down that way. Hope you did not get flooding or any inconvenience from it. We could sure use some of that water!

Good morning ohyeah!

Enjoyed two episodes of Law & Order: SVU. yesterday and one early this morning. The more shows that are seen the more it is liked. Lately the shows are about the characters getting framed, pretending assaults, or making mistakes. As is in the real world. Have just 6 days left to see as many epi's as possible.

Fried onions, red and orange peppers sliced baby bella mushrooms then added some sliced ham and giant hand full of cooked spinach. Made a super spinach omelet for my 6:30 AM lunch. No cheese

Heavy fog was seen at daybreak. The soil was in the low 60's (16°C) and the air was down to 36° (2°C) for the low in the morning. Went out, checked the tomatoes, and watered them.

It has been in the 30's for 4 mornings. The French marigolds are doing well. The zinnia's are done. The half wine barrel of annuals saw much destruction.Yet my window boxes,especially those on the 2nd floor are looking great.

Took my camera and decided to take a trip to Weeks State Park, drive up the paved auto road, and take some spectacular photos on the summit. The gate was looked as the lodge is now only open on the w/e's.

Took a drive on the CT River Hwy. The hills and mtns have lots of color, yet the low elevation trees, such as the silver maples that line both banks of the river are still green.

Acer saccharinum, commonly known as silver maple, creek maple, silverleaf maple, soft maple, water maple, swamp maple, or white maple is a species of maple native to eastern North America in the eastern United States and Canada.

It is one of the most common trees in the United States. Its leaves look like this. Want a shot of the tranquil river lined w/these leaves when their peak red colors arrive. It could be this w/e. Next week for certain.

Civil twilight is 6:07 AM EDT. Night is 7:07 PM.

Sunrise: 6:36 AM. Set: 6:38 PM.

Length of day: 12h 01m. Length of visible light: 12h 59m. Tomorrow will be 3m 4s shorter.

The temp is 38° (3°C), the high to be 68° (20°C) in clear skies w/lots of sun.

Heading to the mkt later for some light produce shopping.

Have a fantastic day!

Good morning Ohyeah :: HUGS :: Had that injection yesterday. No difference so far, but it normally takes upward of 36 or more hours to begin to work. At least I am no worse today. Not sure if I want to see improvement from this one. Improvement means my problem is more widespread. Yet maybe if its more widespread it is more easily treatable. Will need to find out more. Do know I want to hurt less!

Good morning ohyeah!

Spent some time playing StarCraft: Brood War yesterday morning as a member of the Protoss race battling the Terran army and the Zerg swarm. Lot of fun in real time.

Took a drive down US Rt 3 to visit my pals store in Whitefield and the see the northern NH foliage. Left the link as a slide show, so the reader can scroll and see more views, if one desires. Want you to see what is seen every day. Few buildings, lots of mtns, and plenty of fall color.

Hit the Jack pot at the store! Bought four T-bone steaks marked down to $2.49 a lb while still red. Then two pkgs of beef ribs, nice and thick, that were completely cooked and reduced to $2.89 a lb. Love these deals.

Yesterday afternoon the power flickered about 6-7 times, then went out long enough to shut my pc, and have to reset the clocks. When the power goes off my Lazarus Form Recovery (Restores lost posts and fills forms, even on iPad OS7) was reset w/o saved text.

Copied the text on Word. Did not save it before the lights went out. Lost 2 hours of my post w/links and replies to my visitors. Needed to go outside, relax, and enjoy the afternoon. Was burning up angry.

More New England images of autumn.

Good morning ohyeah!

Found great pleasure playing StarCraft on the platforms and in space yesterday morning. One can also play in the valleys and on the mtns. It was a delightful two hour battle.

One can select up to 7 armies of opponents and various scenarios such as ice, desert, space, jungle or an ash world. Choose 1 of 3 races or allow the computer to choose one random for you.

Took a 2 hour nap that was ever so refreshing after waking up before 1 AM for the day. Watched some MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) bouts of Ronda Rousey who fights out of Santa Monica.

Also watched some bouts of Gina Carano who retired in 2009,now at 32 y/o. In other weigh divisions are Paige VanZant and Cat Zingano are the Champs or contender.

They are the two #1 female contenders in each of their weight divisions. Doubt that they will ever fight each other. These gals can really fight, yet there's no denying that marketability has played a part in the sport's growth.

Enjoyed sitting in the sun for 90 minutes It was a beautiful sunny early afternoon. The temp reached 77° (25°C) w/gusts of wind to 10 mph (16 kph). Read my chess mag, watched bees and yellow jackets, and performed light garden maintenance.

Will return to the sun after this post and listen to the home team play baseball. For the Sox our season ends in 1 weeks. Congrats to the other ball teams that made the playoffs. See you at the World's Series.

Civil twilight is 6:04 AM EDT. Night is 7:12 PM.

Sunrise: 6:33 AM. Set: 6:43 PM.

Length of day: 12h 10m. Length of visible light: 13h 08m. Tomorrow will be 3m 4s shorter.

The temp and high is 57° (14°C). There is a 50% chance of rain. It is raining.

Have a pleasant day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Enjoyed getting my post rounds over early. Had the ISS flyover written on paper. Simply forgot about it until a few minutes after it orbited by. Other towns nearby were 27° & 28° (2-3°C) in the morning. My area saw 34° (1°C).

No frost was on the lawn when it was time to go outside. Watered the tomatoes and the flowers. Zinnias and the tomato plant leaves look quite wrinkled. The marigolds took the chill very well. Perennials are unbothered.

Had my brekky of raspberries and strawberries w/1% milk and Raisin Bran. It was only a half cup. Half of what is usually eaten. Then stir fried red yellow and orange bell peppers w/broccoli, carrots, onions and mushrooms.

Dropped an egg into the ceramic coated frying pan then added cold, precooked rice. Made some fried rice and filled up my tummy.

Checked for the weekly and w/e sales flyers. Saw 8 oz pkgs of mushrooms and celery hearts are $1, while broccoli crowns were 99¢. Passed on a marked down pkg of ribs for a choice $13 ($10.99 a lb) porterhouse steak marked down to ($2.99 a lb) to $3.32. Pink and fresh.

Headed to Weeks Hospital for a blood draw ordered by my PCP the day before. Great there were no peeps in the waiting room and there was only one ahead of me.

Was called 15 minutes later. Asked what tests were to be taken of my blood. The Filipino tech say he was taking 4 vial of blood, (15 ml) for all around testing, diabetes, along w/my Hepatitis Serological Profile and my HFE hereditary hemochromatosis DNA.

Shall know the results in 3 months during my follow up appointment in Dec. Stopped to get my mail at the PO, then returned home. Cooked the porterhouse au ju on low medium heat along w/lots of sliced baby bella mushrooms.

The forecast of partially cloudy skies never materialized. Saw overcast throughout the day. It was a serene beautiful drive. The CT River was calm w/8 ducks resting on the water. Lots of leaves are beginning to turn brilliant orange and red. Peak color should be in a week to 10 days.

Civil twilight is 6:03 AM EDT. Night is 7:14 PM.

Sunrise: 6:32 AM. Set: 6:45 PM.

Length of day: 12h 13m. Length of visible light: 13h 11m. Tomorrow will be 3m 4s shorter.

The temp is 54° (12°C), the high is to be 75° (24°C). There is a 50% chance of rain. It is lightly raining.

Have a splendid day!

Good morning ohyeah!

This area saw a low of 26° (-3°C) yesterday morning. Nearby areas saw 24° (-4°C). Saw the ISS orbit by at 4:10 AM. It is the brightest object in the night sky, now that the Moon is small in its waning crescent.

One can see the H shape w/its solar panels with the naked eye. It is the size of one's little finger nail with their arm outstretched. The usual view is 3 to 5 minutes.

A long time considering it is averaging 17,227 mph (27,724 kph) 205 miles (330km) w/a max distance of 255 miles (410 kph) above the Earth. The ISS orbits 15.5 times each day. About 93 minutes to orbit. The ISS is bigger and brighter than any star, except the Moon.

Went out at 10 AM yesterday to see vast frost on the lawn in the shade. Removed the sheets to see some of the leaves wrinkled and frostbitten. Gave each plant ½ gallon of water. Then drove to my 10:45 Dr's appointment.

Saw lots of frost in the fields. Folks that had uncovered tomato plants had leaves that were cooked spinach. Many picked the tomatoes and left the plants for the freezing temps. Hope to extend my growing season for another two weeks.

There were a dozen folks in the waiting room. Began to read the Sept issue of WebMD. 5 minutes later, the nurse called. The others were there before me. There are 5 doctors to see their patients.

Vitals were BP 138/78, 95% O2, HR 82 /min. We discussed my borderline diabetes, osteoarthritis of my rt hip, left ventricular, increasing borderline hypertension, and SVT (Supraventricular Tachycardia).

Know that after the dental and hip replacement surgery hiking and rapid elevation gain will restore my vitals to more healthy numbers. Have an appointment w/a SVT cardiology electrical impulse specialist from Dartmouth Medical Center at Weeks Hospital in Lancaster in two weeks.

The doc will test and discuss my heart's electrical system. It doesn't work right and causes the heart to beat very fast. The heart beats at least 100 beats a minute and may reach 300 beats a minute for seconds to a few minutes. More tests will be performed. Perhaps surgery as well. Will know more then.

Civil twilight is 6:01 AM EDT. Night is 7:16 PM.

Sunrise: 6:31 AM. Set: 6:47 PM.

Length of day: 12h 16m. Length of visible light: 13h 14m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 38° (3°C), the high is to be 57° (14°C) in sunny skies.

Plan to watch the ISS orbit by at 4:55 AM in the NNW sky.

Have a tremendous day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Temp is down to 28° (-2°C). Picked ripe and nearly ripe tomatoes before sundown. Covered up the tomatoes w/sheets, left the marigolds uncovered. Turned off the water to 6 outdoor faucets. Will know at 8 AM or so how everything made out.

Bought some deals at the mkt. Driscoll's Big 18 oz of raspberries are $2.50, all colored peppers $1.25, 3 lbs of onions $1.28, 18 oz of giant blueberries $3.50, leaf lettuce $1.38, huge navel oranges 3/$2, Bartlett pears $1.25, lemons 50¢ ea, limes 40¢ ea, and grapes $2.28 a lb.

Big Papa's Mkt easily beats ALL the competition.

Shopped for some food items at WM. They did not have fat free cottage cheese in stock. Boo on that!

Went into Shaw's and found 1 pkg of $1.99 southern ribs with a $3 off sticker. That brought the ribs down to $1.25 a lb. Will enjoy to eat them unexpectedly at that low cost.

Gas went down to $3.41 locally. It is below $3.25 a gallon in the southern, populated part of the state.

Enjoyed a ham and BLT sammie at home w/homegrown tomatoes, leaf lettuce cuke slice, and onions on round flatbread. Then Law & Order: SVU was watched. The forecast predicted sun. There was none. Have a late morning appointment w/my doc to go over what the abdominal ultrasound showed nearly 1 month ago.

Civil twilight is 6:00 AM EDT. Night is 7:18 PM.

Sunrise: 6:29 AM. Set: 6:49 PM.

Length of day: 12h 19m. Length of visible light: 13h 17m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 28° (-2°C), the high is to be 57° (14°C) in sunny skies.

Plan to watch the ISS orbit by at 4:09 AM. The Milky Way looks fantastic.

Have a delightful day!

Good morning Ohyeah :: HUGS :: I am scheduled for the first of two injections next Tuesday afternoon. I will need to go six hours with no food, and only clear liquids up to two hours before. I can have breakfast that way. After examining me, asking LOTS of questions, and having me move in varied ways, he has determined that I "seem" to have arthritis at the junction of the sacroiliac and the pelvis. I use quotes, as he said that the poke and prod test that he used to determine that is only correct 50% of the time. What really tells the difference is by doing the first of the injections in that location, letting it work for two weeks and seeing how the patient is. I asked some questions about how this arthritis would manifest and he could only answer in generalities as different people manifest differently. He did say that my issues over the last few years related to walking could very well be from right there. I do know I have been quite sore right there since the exam! Next injection will be a steroid injection right by the lumbar vertebra. He may do more than one where my problem is spread out over two to three of them. Fun, Fun, Fun. Hope to see some measure of relief, and hoping it lasts a while. Will need to be driven to and from the appointments as they will "mildly" sedate me to give me those injections. Bet that means two to three hours later I will hurt a lot more for a day or so.

Good morning ohyeah!

Enjoyed researching online more info on my grapes. Particularly why no fruit. Vine is 4 years old and 2" wide at the base of the cane.

Need to prune the vines down to only fours shoots, called the Kniffen Method, in the fall or spring while it remains dormant.

Have located 20 gauge galvanized wire to make a wire trellis going east and one going west in the spring. Each location is in full sun for 12 hours plus.

Read from many sites the most common mistake people make is not pruning hard enough. Light pruning doesn’t promote adequate fruiting, whereas heavy pruning provides the greatest quality of grapes. Also cut the oldest wood and just leave the newest shoots.

Mowed the remainder of the lawn behind the house. Then delighted sitting in the sun w/just shorts on reading my chess magazines. The sky have very few clouds, with the sun being strong for mid Sept. The temp climbed to 63° (17°C). Will take it over rain or gray clouded skies.

Civil twilight is 5:59 AM EDT. Night is 7:20 PM.

Sunrise: 6:28 AM. Set: 6:51 PM.

Length of day: 12h 22m. Length of visible light: 13h 20m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 39° (4°C), the high is to be 64° (18°C) in sunny skies.

Off to the market for very light buying. Then some visits to other stores.

Have a fantastic day!

Good morning Ohyeah :: HUGS :: Now that I've had the new lens for over a day, I am pretty sure its good. It takes a day or so for me to get accustomed to a new RX, and now that things seem normal through them, I seem still to see best right where I'm supposed to!
Will head out just after lunch to the doctor appointment. Imagine I have to fill out a few things there. Most of the new patient paperwork was done Monday afternoon over the Internet. I am looking forward to the appointment for both a step toward getting something done for my back, and for learning more about what these guys do.

Good morning ohyeah!

Woke up to light rain falling at 1 AM yesterday morning. It rained for two hours, it stopped for a few hours and began again, more moderately this time. Completed my rounds, then took a 90 min nap. The sky was still dark.

Woke up to rain and played StarCraft: Brood War. Had one of the best battles ever. The Protoss and terran fighting side by side against me w/my Zerg army. Very hard work, yet very entertaining.

Drove to the PO after the rain stopped late morning. Then went to Shaw's for some boneless, skinless, chicken breasts on sale for $1.99 a lb. Lucked out seeing 2 pkgs of 80/20% ground lamb for $1.99 a lb.

Returned home for a low carb lamb burger lunch and saw a fabulous epi of Law & Order: SVU. While investigating a baby's infected w/Aids, the unit uncovers a doctor who claims Aids is not real. That it is a gov't and pharmaceutical conspiracy.

Did see the sun for 10 minutes. Just was not time to enjoy it. Did go out and add some compost to one clump of echinacea to stand it upright. Picked 6 more tomatoes. Storing them in the fridge to make salsa. Will need to be fairly soon.

Civil twilight is 5:58 AM EDT. Night is 7:22 PM.

Sunrise: 6:27 AM. Set: 6:53 PM.

Length of day: 12h 25m. Length of visible light: 13h 23m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 43° (6°C), the high is to be 65° (18°C). The sun returns.

Have a fabulous day!

Good morning Ohyeah :: HUGS ::

Got a new left lens in the glasses. It seems to be pretty good. It sees distance pretty well, and best right in the center top like it should. Close up is a bit more specific. You really need to hold things a certain distance to get the most out of the bifocals. At leas I can look straight forward to see OK now instead of off to the side a bit! It will take another few days to get completely used to them.

I called for the pain management appointment yesterday and I have the consult set up for tomorrow afternoon. Will find out then what they do, how they do it, and WHEN they are going to do it. As I have not been told I cannot drive to this appointment, I know they are not going to give me any shots. Know they do not let you drive home, and that you should really not do anything for the rest of the day after a shot. I was happy to be able to be seen so quickly. I will take my MRI results with me, as well as some very old surgical notes I have from my 1979 back surgery.

Good morning ohyeah!

Temp was down to 36° (2°C) yesterday morning. It did not warm up to 50° (10°C) until 11 AM. Watered the tomatoes and picked 5 of them. Nice, juicy, and firm ones, thanks to the crushed egg shells amended to the soil in May.

Wind was from the north and had a chill to it. The sun sun felt fabulous. The shade did not. Performed further garden maintenance and picked 1/4 cup of blueberries.

Many of the daylilies are browning with the exception of the one transplanted in early May, named radiant greeting. They bloom orange-yellow with a wide red halo and slightly ruffled petals. No longer w/blooms this year, just lush green growth for next spring to flower.

Mowed 25% of the lawn around the highbush bb's. Have the lawn behind the house remaining. The sun is low in the horizon, the lawn is now almost entirely in the shade. In just weeks the sun will never be seen above treeline until April arrives.

Saw an episode of Law & Order: SVU and then one from CSI: Miami. Made some fried rice w/red and orange peppers, onions, mushrooms, julienne carrots and broccoli. Felt the need of a change of veggies w/ribs and chicken cutlets.

Civil twilight is 5:57 AM EDT. Night is 7:24 PM.

Sunrise: 6:26 AM. Set: 6:55 PM.

Length of day: 12h 28m. Length of visible light: 13h 27m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 46° (8°C), the high is to be 60° (15°C). There is a 70% chance of rain. It is raining lightly.

Have a wonderful day!

Good morning ohyeah!

The wunderground.com forecast for yesterday was partly cloudy and 56° (13.3°C). The actual weather was absolutely no sun, 46° (7.7°C), and dampness to the bone.

The charts revealed zero rainfall, yet there were beads of water on the car and puddles on the plastic water trough beneath the wiper blades. A check of yesterday's dew point of read a low of -99.9°F and a high of 200.0°F. Crazy numbers.

Rinsed off the gravel stains that splattered from the rain bouncing up from the driveway. Then used a 24" x 16" chamois sheep leather skin to dry the cars spot free. Love a chamois over anything else.

The secret to using a real chamois skin is to soak and rinse it in a tub of water that has only 1 drop of liquid soap. Then it is dried on the back of a chair in the house.

This manner keeps it clean and nicely ready for future use. Mine is at least 15 years old. It makes the finish shiny and spot free.

It is now hunting season for bear and waterfowl. It began Sept 1. Deer, turkey, and small game begins on Sept 15. Hunting season ends Dec 15. Pheasant until Dec 31.

Small game and furbearers until March of 2015. Hearing lots of gunshots in the distance. May blow my whistle to save the game in my area. Have done this for years.

Watered the tomatoes and checked the strawberries. None. Picked a half cup of bb's. Returned to the house and cooked 2 split chicken breasts cut into 4 ½" thin halves making cutlets in evoo.

Then the fat was trimmed from 3.5 lbs of southern ribs ($1.99 a lb for each), deboned, and placed in the crock pot w/2 oz of water, carrots, potatoes, and greens beans. That will be cooked for 3-3.5 hours.

Enjoyed an episode of Law and Order: SVU that had Robin Williams masquerading as a police officer. Playing science engineer Merritt Rock, he dupes people into committing crimes and then turns his subsequent trial into a media circus. One of the best epi's yet.

Watched the afternoon ballgame alomng with football on the internet. Looks like fall weather and its chilly temps have arrived and may stay until winter takes its command. There was a most beautiful aurora borealis Saturday night, along w/the sunset, and a colorful undercast. It can be seen on the Mt Washington Obs camera. (3m 3s)

Civil twilight is 5:55 AM EDT. Night is 7:26 PM.

Sunrise: 6:25 AM. Set: 6:56 PM.

Length of day: 12h 31m. Length of visible light: 13h 30m. Tomorrow will be 3m 2s shorter.

The temp is 40° (4°C), the high is to be 62° (17°C), with partly sunny skies in the forecast.

Have a pleasant day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Finished the incredible "12 Years a Slave," a true story of one man's fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted via a ruse that he has a violin gig in NY, drugged, and sold into slavery.

Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender), as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity.

In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon's chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) will forever alter his life. If one has no idea of what a slave went thru before the Civil War, this story must be seen. A movie everyone should see, experience, and learn. 5 of 5 stars.

"12 Years a Slave" is free at this site. A clean site w/o malware, phishing, or fraud. Some AV's give false positives. Have been using this site for 6 months.

gives the putlocker.is movie site a 100% safe rating, as do scores of others that review sites.

One raw, damp to the bone day yesterday w/the temp at 41° (5°C) at 9 AM. Changed into jeans and a thick winter long sleeve shirt before heading out at 9:30 AM. Visited the Recycling Center to dispose of my items to avoid them collecting

Drove to Whitefield, to visit my pal the meat mgr, bought nothing, stopped at that town's library to order ‘The Terrorist’s Son: A Story of Choice,’ from the NH State Library.

The high temp was 52° with a nice steady light rain arriving in the afternoon. Saw lots of hues of autumn color on the trees during my drives. Temps will see the low 40's and mid 30's (11° to 3°C) for a week. That'll boost the leaf intensity up a notch, as will the rain.

Civil twilight is 5:54 AM EDT. Night is 7:28 PM.

Sunrise: 6:24 AM. Set: 6:56 PM.

Length of day: 12h 34m. Length of visible light: 13h 33m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 47° (8°C), the high is to be 56° (13°C), with partly sunny skies in the forecast.

Have a splendid day!

Good morning!

Right after my posts yesterday morning a 2 hour nap was taken. Was seeing dbl during my rounds early in the morning and images were a bit blurry. Felt refreshed and much better after my rest.

Began to see the end of the movie that was watched 2 days ago. Then got a phone call from my bank in Boston that said my credit/debit card from them was most likely compromised as it was used recently at Home Depot.

Apparently the hack into the Home Depot stores nationwide could be the largest such theft in history. That was 9 days ago. My bank is playing catch up to 1,000's of customers. Will have a new cc # and it is being processed and sent.

Decided to go on a drive to Whitefield. Went to the store my pal is the meat mgr. He was not at work on this day noticed the meat prices are still increasing slightly. At least red grapes were on sale for $1.79. Nice and large, firm, and juicy ones.

Returned to town to get my mail, then shopped at Shaw's. Bought some bone-In country style pork spareribs for $1.98 a lb. Returned home to Separate split chicken breast from the bone and then fry some breaded chicken breast cutlets in evoo.

Had a fabulous lunch along w/a salad of leaf lettuce, baby spinach, homegrown tomatoes w/lots of veggies.

The forecast called for clear skies and 62 (17C). There was no sun and the high was 52 (11C). Almost chilly for shorts and a t-shirt. Saw fishermen on the CT River and peeps at the store in fall jackets.

Lows will be in the 60's (17C)for the next week. In between possible rain storms today and Tuesday.

Civil twilight is 5:53 AM EDT. Night is 7:29 PM.

Sunrise: 6:22 AM. Set: 7:00 PM.

Length of day: 12h 37m. Length of visible light: 13h 36m. Tomorrow will be 3m 2s shorter.

The temp is 38° (3°C), the high is to be 58° (14°C), with a 40% chance of rain.

Have a tremendous day!

Left early to take the pleasing drive on the CT River hwy (Rt 135) that was resurfaced, then the lines painted. The river and the flat valley looked so peaceful.

Could see hues of color beginning on many trees. Night temps will drop into the 40's and high 30's (3-8°C) for the next week. That and lots of rain will allow the leaves to become brilliant in the next 2-3 weeks. Looking forward to the autumn splendor.

Bought at Big Papa's Mkt were softball size oranges 67¢ ea, largest cantaloupes ever seen $1.75, baseball size lemons 2 for $1, limes 5/$1 and baby bella 10 oz for $2.25.

Also baskets of #2 (slightly bruised) orange bell peppers 75¢ a lb, 1 lb bag of baby spinach $3, a 12 oz (2 pints) pkg of raspberries a foot long $2.50, blackberries 6 oz (1 pint) $1.67, and the largest avocados ever seen for 78¢ ea.

Visited my pal at Rite Aid and spoke about baseball. Bought lots of items at WM. Even bought coat hangers. My ongoing collection of ball game t-shirts ran out of hangers.

Saw light, steady rain, the kind that is so gentle and needed to raise the water table for the coming winter. The temp was a cool 65° (18°C). Did wash the car and allow the rain to rinse it.

Civil twilight is 5:52 AM EDT. Night is 7:31 PM.

Sunrise: 6:21 AM. Set: 7:02 PM.

Length of day: 12h 40m. Length of visible light: 13h 39m. Tomorrow will be 3m 2s shorter.

The temp is 54° (14°C), the high is to be 64° (21°C), with partly sunny skies in the forecast.

Have a delightful day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Today is the 13th anniversary of the Sept 11, 2001 attacks on the Pentagon in Washington DC and in New York City. Thank God a group lead by Todd Beammer, crashed their passenger jet (killing all 44 people aboard including the four hijackers) in Shanksville PA. A total of 2,996 perished (2,977 victims, 19 hijackers.)

Only 14 people escaped from the impact zone of the South Tower (floors 77 to 85) after it was hit and only four people from the floors above it. Individuals escaped from as high up on the South Tower as the 84th floor after initial impact. They escaped via stairwell A. At the Pentagon, all 58 passengers, four flight attendants, and both pilots on board, as well as 125 occupants died.

Hikers in NH will fly flags on 48 4,000 foot (1,219 metres) summits on Saturday, noon to 2PM as an annual memorial. A thousand spectators will attend. A peace and reflection gathering afterwards is held. Went to the summit of Mt Liberty (4,459'/1,359m) 3 days after the attacks and raised the first flag.

Saw a fantastic movie that the review will eventually be typed. Then got into seeing Laila Ali, daughter of Muhammad, fight 5 bouts. She is 24 wins, 0 loses, w/21 knockouts. No draws or no contests when she retired in 2007. Laila is now a fashion model at age 36.

Also saw her pull thru for the win in the Ali vs Jacqui Frazier-Lyde fight in 2001. This was the First Pay Per View boxing card ever to be headlined by women.

In 2008, Jacqui Frazier-Lyde, an attorney practicing law, was elected in Philadelphia as a Municipal Court Judge. Laila Ali is the eighth of her father's nine children and his youngest daughter. Laila Ali is now a fashion model at age 36.

Mixed Martial Art (MMA) Cat Zingano (Cathilee Deborah Zingano, {née Albert}, born July 1, 1982) was seen in several MMA bouts on youtube. Cat is an American mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. On April 13, 2013, she became the first woman to win a UFC fight by technical knockout.

By 11 AM the temp just touched 60° (15°C) and it was time to go outdoors. Tackled the strawberry plants. Have new flowers, no further fruit in the everbearers. Picked enough blueberries for my next cereal ,watered the plants, then mowed 25% more of the lawn.

Enjoyed a healthy salad w/two homegrown tomatoes, lots of leaf lettuce and plenty of fresh veggies. It was topped with evoo and then cottage cheese. Sat in the sun enjoying the cloudless perfect summer day that reached a pleasing 72° (22°C).

Civil twilight is 5:51 AM EDT. Night is 7:33 PM.

Sunrise: 6:20 AM. Set: 7:04 PM.

Length of day: 12h 43m. Length of visible light: 13h 42m. Tomorrow will be 3m 2s shorter.

The temp is 58° (14°C), the high is to be 69° (21°C), with a 90% chance for rain. Off to the market and other stores for some light shopping.

Have a fantastic day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Had a smashing time early in the morning playing as the Terran forces defeating the Zerg and the Protoss during a war in space. Lots of joy and fantastic entertainment in the real time strategy game Starcraft. (2:07 min)

Watched a Law and Order: SVU epi, then "Criminal Minds." Rec'd a phone call from the Oral Surgeon's Office. They acknowledged my Ins Co will pay the cost of surgery.

Still unhappy, as that office could have settled the matter early last week or even the week before and last Thursday's oral surgery appointment kept. They are the only game in the area that is less than a one hour drive. Monday, Sept 29th is the makeup surgery.

Did my laundry, then made pork chops for lunch. Enjoyed walking thru the gardens performing maintenance and dreaming of expansion next year. See that much of the daylilies, ferns, and brackens are yellow and some are brown.

The fall vivid colors will peak in the northern NH mtns in just a week or two weeks. Lots of rain and cold weather increases the intensity of the reds, oranges, and yellows. Here is the foliage tracker for each NH region.

Voted at the Town Hall yesterday. It was the NH Primary.

Civil twilight is 5:49 AM EDT. Night is 7:35 PM.

Sunrise: 6:19 AM. Set: 7:06 PM.

Length of day: 12h 46m. Length of visible light: 13h 45m. Tomorrow will be 3m 1s shorter.

The temp is 41° (5°C), the high is to be 73° (23°C), in bright sunny skies.

Have a fabulous day!

Good morning Ohyeah :: HUGS :: Well, back to the neurologist as my back is not getting better. Looks like the next step is a cortisone shot. Will find out for sure at the 1:30 appointment. Hope I can get some relief from this damned thing. Its getting to the point I cannot walk a 1/10th of a mile without significant pain. UGH.

Hope you are doing well and still enjoying the smell of new leather! Get thy self to the beach one more time. Its September, and beach days will start to go away!

Good morning ohyeah!

Am enjoying "Law & Order: Special Victims' Unit" on Netflix. It will end its streaming availability on Oct 1. It is the last call of the month for any of the L & O Series. New shows & movies will be available.

Played a 90 minute war w/the 3 races in StarCraft. A pleasing way to spend the early morning until the 46° (8°C) temp began to rise for the day. A most pleasant 75° (24°C)in full sun with clear skies.

Rec'd a phone call from Montreal Quebec. It was Iristel Inc. They are a Canadian provider of Voice over Internet Protocol services, and is designated as a competitive local exchange carrier.

The Co was founded in 1999, and is headquartered in Markham, Ontario, Canada. Allowed the digital answering machine to answer. No message was left.

Sliced a half of chicken cutlet cut two strips of turkey bacon and built a heaping plate of veggies to make a salad. Added 3 scoops of cottage cheese on top and add evoo.

Went out and sat in the sun and luxuriate in my mostly veggie feast. Two of the smaller homegrown tomatoes were used in the salad. They taste better than any tomato ever purchased. Sweet, firm and juicy.

Read for an hour, then mowed the lawn closest to the road. Trimmed down the three gardens of various colored daylilies, watered all the plants, then did further garden maintenance.

Cut much of the 4' tall crocosmia 'Lucifer' that has gone by bnear to the ground. This will direct sunlight on the slow growing and newly planted, still low to the ground Echinacea Purpurea Magnus and the new growth of Shasta 'Alaska" daisies.

The wildflowers see 3 types of blooms on the annuals. Some of the perennials are 10" tall. All the plants are overcrowded as the seed was hand broadcast too thick, as though it was grass seed.

Civil twilight is 5:48 AM EDT. Night is 7:37 PM.

Sunrise: 6:18 AM. Set: 7:08 PM.

Length of day: 12h 49m. Length of visible light: 13h 48m. Tomorrow will be 3m 2s shorter.

The temp is 48° (9°C), the high is to be 77° (25°C), in bright sunny skies.

Walked around my property at 12:30 AM by the light of the full Super Moon. Four constellations were seen. The Moon cast long shadows of the trees. Happy harvest Moon.

Have a wonderful day!
