Today got away from me. I achieved only 3/5 goals and my calorie intake was very high - 2262.

My health goals for tomorrow are to
1. Do back exercises
2. Get some exercise by starting to put in my vegetable garden
3. Keep calories under 1500

"Only" 3/5 =.600 Baseball players who bat only .250 make millions a year.
Now if only the rest of life paid that well.....

Don't blame you, I shred huge whacks of
paper, mostly at months end.


Some of it goes back 3 years. 2 3kg bales.

I'm working through boxes and boxes of stuff my mother kept. Every time I open a closet I find more. Found a small lock-box with her pay stubs from 1950 - Bancroft Travel Agency, Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. Some of this ancient history I'm scanning to disc, but a lot goes through the shredder and out to the compost piles or to mulch the roses.

Ah yes. Paid by the mile as the crow files. Always pick the shortest route bridge heights be damned. Drive more hours than permitted. It gets you a bigger paycheck.

Oh as to height here in the US, the trailer isn't married to the tractor. The height needs to be on the trailer, not the tractor. Of course flat beds with external loads are another matter.

That and Bob tail trucks.

I've seen extra-tall trainers marked with the trailer height on the rear doors - 110 Inches inside height. I used to know what the standard floor height was, I'd guess about 5 feet, so that puts the trailer roof at 14-4. But the few professional drivers I know do know how tall their rigs are, and which bridges to detour around......

Those trailers are not taller than 13'6". 110" inside hight is gained by lowering the floor and running on low profile tires. Even the truck tractors are on low profile tires. I've seen 5th wheel heights as low as 30". Granted this was special order. The carrier had loads that cube out before grossing out.
If you want to run the lower 48 you're limited to 13'6", although some states do allow taller trucks.

Thanks for the correction. Learn something every day.

Winning after a busy day.

Sunny Friday morning win.
91F predicted, glad the mulberry trees have leafed out.....

Looks like we'll be lucky to get to 31F.


Too bad we can't split the difference. 60F would be a nice, comfortable temp for both of us, no?

This is from today's FreeKibble quiz page.

Seems Youtube allows videos of this activity, illegal in most US jurisdictions, to be posted on their site.

Click here if you want to send a message to Youtube protesting their policy (Yes, I did).

No treats, no snacks, no ice cream, no sugar, no salt,
none of LSM's baking, no.....

But it is working so far......



edit:
Julie tell this to your doctor....

I did, she told me nothing is wrong with me, my blood is perfect. I really don't understand what's going on. I keep on having those bruises as well.

They were empathic pains... For some reason the water supply for the hamster didn't work properly so he didn't have any water for 5 days, we didn't notice anything until last night he fainted. We gave him water after which he drank for an whole hour. I don't have any stomach ache anymore when I eat now, amazing innit:)

Some of us do have much higher empathy levels than others. Unlike a certain US Ex-President, we really do feel your pain......

Winning after a pleasant evening out.
Went to a local pub where several of my friends and acquaintances play in the band. Good food, good music, good people. Kinda like here, but with live music and real booze.....

Europe is in mourning now:(

Vernet. "There was nothing to do. Nothing" said Jean-Louis Bietrix to swedish DN. He is one of the mountain guides who were first on the scene of the disaster in the Alps yesterday.
Jean-Louis Bietrix lower his eyes and becomes silent when he describes what he saw.
- You really need to know that it was an accident scene to understand that it was just that. It looked more like ... a rubbish dump. There was no bit of the plane that was larger than this, he says, holding his hands with a half-meter distance.
- It was obvious that there was no rescue, he says.
The rock wall where the plane crashed according to him is steep, around 70 degrees!

News regarding the cockpit voice recorder data.

May see some changes in the cockpit door and/or cockpit manning over this.

Sorry, I got as far as previewing a reply, but evidently never hit 'post'.

The Fort William line is best known as the "West Highland Line", and a search on that term will retrieve links like

ScotRail
Wikipedia
Seat 61

It's a regular daytime service line, as well as the sleepers and specials that Chris has mentioned.

I made 4 missile patrols out of Holy Loch/Dunoon in the early 80s, and visited both Glasgow, Edinburgh, St. Andrew's, and Loch Ness. Scotland's been on my "going back" list ever since. I've bookmarked those links, so when it gets high enough on my list, .......
