The best thing about living in a place so close to a beautiful city like San Francisco is that people want to visit.

Oh it's so nice to have Angela back again.

I didn't go anywhere!!!

Are you sure?! :)

Quite sure. We had a house guest for a little while, so maybe I didn't post as much as usual. We have another house guest moving in tomorrow and staying for a week, so if I post less, there is no need to send out any search parties.

Eric and I recently finished that 10 hour OJ documentary. It was very well done.


I got all OJ'd out during the original trial on tv.


So did we, but this documentary provided context, context, context.

The documentary is not at all sensational. Rather, it methodically examines complex race relations in our country.

I highly recommend the viewing of this documentary.

What type of pie is that?

It is Quiche Lorraine, one of the few foods that can tempt Ulibelle to the table for breakfast.

Vic, I think you mis-understood my question. I certainly wasn't implying that you should post your health report card, especially the more personal stuff (Merciful heavens!!!), but congratulations on being so healthy.

I only asked you whether you thought that the health screenings that your doctor orders for you and the advice that your doctor gives you would be different if your doctor knew your exact weight on the day of an appointment, as opposed to your doctor knowing your approximate, self-reported weight on the day of an appointment.

My argument is that having a scale that records your exact weight would probably not change what your doctor says to you or what health screenings your doctor orders for you.

If (heaven forbid!!!) you had to have surgery, then an exact weight recording would probably be warranted so that you could be properly and safely anesthetized, but for an ordinary doctor's visit I simply cannot imagine any difference your actual weight vs your recorded weight would make in how your doctor manages your care.

...the office relies on Me to give them a reading of My weight, their
scale goes to 300lbs only, I tried to get one that went higher, the office
ignored the request...


Vic, you have mentioned this scale issue many times before. I've resisted commenting in the past, but truth be told, my curiosity is piqued. This time around I am simply going to ask you... What do you think would be different, in terms of the doctor's medical advice to you, were the doctor to verify your exact weight vs having you simply report to him that you weigh around 400 pounds, give or take 20 pounds on either side of 400?

It does not really make sense for your doctor to invest in a scale that precisely weighs 1% or maybe 2% of his patient caseload, as his advice to this subset of patients is probably going to be the same whether they weigh in at 300 or at 400 pounds.

We all know the medical health risks of obesity - Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, stroke, cancer, breathing disorders, gallbladder disease, fertility problems, sexual dysfunction, fatty liver disease and osteoarthritis.

A patient who weighs 300 pounds would probably get the same health checks, and the same medical advice, as a patient who weighs 400 pounds.

Truth be told, I'm with the doctor on this one!

Why buy an expensive special scale when it does not change the things your doctor would check, or the advice your doctor would give you?

I posted a cake picture because it is traditional, but THIS is what Uli probably actually prefers to cake...
