    Small Gold and Gall stones

    Het Andyy: Just saw this post of yours. I'm with you on the conservative attitude of keeping the gall bladder (the body's toxic waste disposal service) despite the discomforts. It serves some important functions -- such as cleansing your body of some nasties like prostaglandins and leukotrienes which some authorities believe ultimately can contribute to rheumatoid arthritis if allowed to accumulate. As far as hunting for tiny ones, being able to hear and retrieve such subdued signals is excellent practice for those days that we successfully recognize the ghostly whisper of a lunker lurking way down low. Glad you are feeling better.

    Wow! Glad to know he seems to be okay. There may be some interesting back stories to this -- both the guy's and the good samaritan's. I hope he wasn't just taking a selfie. Looking forward to learning the details. Thanks for posting.

    Sounds like you have been a hard working man for many years. I think it's great you used your talents to get you to a place where you have some peace of mind, and room for Christmas with family! You have paid your dues my brother, may you spend the rest of your holidays with whoever you wish. I love that phrase of yours.... Life is short. Do what makes you art a lot.

  16. On my way to Rye Patch last Thursday morning about 1:17 AM I was on 395 and observed a meteor or 'fireball event' that was just incredible. I now see that there is a video that does not do it justice. Before I put a link to that video and those reports let me tell you what I saw and how I reported it. This is what I saw: About 20 minutes north of Ridgecrest on 395 I had just gotten out of my car. As soon as I opened the door I could see it coming. It was several objects burning in the sky with 6-7 separate streaks. It was a dark night and no moon. It was perfectly clear where I was and I thought I was just looking at a huge screen TV. The height seemed to be that of a commercial jet but this was much larger. It didn't remind me so much of a meteor as it did space junk. I guess we'll find out more about that later. It was just a coincidence that I stop at this particular time and place. I probably would not have seen it or I would not have seen as much of it if I was still in the 4Runner. Most of my report is in the report itself. So, what do you do when you see an 'event' of your own? Well, I drove all night to go looking for some gold at Rye Patch so that is what I did. That night I had to sleep. The next night I had a chance to get on the computer and ask the question 'What was that?' Where do you go, what do you do online to report something? As it turns out you go to REPORT A FIREBALL at the American Meteor Society. https://www.amsmeteors.org/ When you get there you can click on Report a Fireball. You will get asked a series of questions to describe what you saw in a technical way that will let the software develop a map of the event as you and hopefully many others saw it. You can upload pictures and video. You can also search for events from all over the world. So, I reported and I didn't see my report with the others. As it turned out there is a pending report file and if you don't state it as they are compiling it then your report will not be added. I now knew my event number was 4094 so I edited my report and it was added to the 29 others and still counting. It was a very, very neat experience. The video now posted on YouTube is only 1/100th of what I saw. I had better than a front row seat. I was in the middle and there were no heads or clouds in my way! Here is the report link: https://www.amsmeteors.org/members/imo_view/event/2018/4094 Here is the video: https://www.amsmeteors.org/videos/?video_id=1445 Mitchel

    darn Elizabeth Warren !

    Yes, He needs prayers if you pray, this is a really rare thing, and if its not brought under control, you just stop breathing in your sleep. Its treatable, but not cureable. He is in the hospital, Emanuel in Turlock Ca. Grubstake

    Winter is coming.

    Yep, I think we bypassed Fall this year. Cooler running one day and in three days time trying to remember what we did with the little Box Heaters here. WTH ?

    Winter is coming.

    It did seem extra hot and humid last summer. It was hard to motivate myself to do much of anything. I'm thankful for the sudden cooling too. I know what you mean about the coffee! I usually have a pot in the morning and I'm done. Yesterday I made a pot in the middle of the afternoon! Blatant blasphemy, but I enjoyed it.

    They say he is alert and talking, so that's a good sign, hopefully he's not hurt to bad! https://www.abc15.com/news/state/mcso-man-trapped-in-western-arizona-mine-shaft-rescue-underway "MCSO Search and Rescue is gearing up to extract an adult male who has fallen into a mine shaft 100 feet deep. He was found today by a good samaritan but has been there since Monday. He is alert and talking, the mine shaft is in the area of Eagle Eye Road and Mile Post 13."
