What works for one obviously doesn't work for another .When I first visited my doctor when I came out of the hospital he actually was horrified but understanding as to why I had lost so much weight..I was 163 when I had my accident and first went to the hospital., I was 123 when I was released.. Most doctors and nurses wasn't concerned and well I didn't care..lol they were pumping me full of two types of liquid intravenous antibiotics every 6 hours one was exchanged for the other...most everyone knows that antibiotics strip your system and take away your appetite...it worked that way in my case...First words out of my Doctors mouth behind closed doors " Wtf happened to you.?" he was used to seeing me in a blaze of health , not as a stick person..lol
Anyway we sat and talked he realized it would take me awhile to get back on track and not be as I was before but close...I had bruised my one kidney and function wasn't great..all he said to me was , " one solution , drink lots of water , strive for 1 and 1/2 liters a day , more if possible , because of reduced kidney function and the fact you are dehydrated it needs to be corrected through lots of fluids." I gained more weight and started to look fairly normal , and went to 150 pounds...water is a natural diuretic and removes a lot of nasty bacteria and waste from the kidneys...no sugary fluids just water...flushes the kidneys and keeps weight down ...now 1 year and six months later I am still at 150...and I am now drinking 12 cups of water a day and loving it...I take little salt , and a 3.7 ounce of a salt shaker still is 3/4 full...been that way now for about 5 years ..lol..anyway in short water is a best friend when starting any diet or even every day when thirst strikes..

Find out something new almost every day ..I spoke to my motorcycle mechanic and he told me about a wonderful gadget that simply blew my mind today..As some of you know due to a bad motorcycle accident I had in 2017 I lost my left leg ..but that has not deterred me from planning to ride again hopefully this year...I have another motorcycle redone except for the three wheel kit and hand controls..I bought a set of ghost wheels a week ago and hes going to install them ..this morning I got an email from him telling me about a way to do hand controls without having to shift with my foot that's not there..
I have a prosthetic but its not able to shift the gears by foot so Ta Da! Welcome Kliktronic push button shifting right on the handle bars...wowzers! yep this is how the ad reads.
The Kliktronic system is best described as an " electronic foot " It is operated by two discreet buttons usually mounted on the handle bars.It is powered by the bikes electronic system u8nlike air shifters there is no bulky gas bottles.It is dual acting for both up and down shifts and it is extremely fast and considered very consistant ...cool yes? Introduced in 1997 after 18 months in development , the system was developed in England..This system was originally designed for disabled people and now is used literally on the street or racing..Thousands of disabled riders who never thought they would ever ride again is benefitting from this unique system ...hands down the coolest this ever...Once biker always a biker.....

Well my eyes and ears mostly because of the amount of holidays that's shoved at us every time we wake up...Now don't get me wrong I don't mind special days or holidays thats what they are for to celebrate .Xmas , thanksgiving , and the dreaded valentines day , omg if I see or hear one more happy valentines day I think I will puke! I see people who don't normally write or say anything on any other day ...expressing their love for whatever walks and talks on Valentines day, like really ? You come out of your turtle shell just for that ? lol makes little sense but oh well..Then you got those who start the dreaded countdown to whatever is coming sometimes weeks before the event or holiday ...telling you day by day how many freaking days there are left till whatever is coming the latest one now is Spring ..ffs when Spring is finally and officially here then yell it out , but let the rest of us hibernate till that day comes.....give it a rest please! Sigh ! Everyone has their peevs and sometimes has to say it out loud lest they bleed profusely from the eyes or ears .well I just checked my eyes and ears and so far so good , but by the end of the day who knows..lol Thanks for the memories !

A Pap test saved my life!

I was reading a blog post recently bemoaning the bad experience of having a pap test.Why does this happen why does that happen why why why ? Here is a little story taken from the pages of Maclean;s magazine from 1971 and I quote word for word from that article..
A quiet little man who became a giant in the history of cancer research , by the name of Dr. George Papanicolaou who was born in Greece in 1883 and died in Florida in 1962, has saved the lives of literally tens of thousands of women world wide..Known as Dr. Pap , he invented a simple test for detecting changes in the cells of the cervix before they turn to cancer , or when cancer is at an early and easily curable stage.
It was this device, known as the Pap test , which has saved a lot of women in the early stages of cancer.one life saved was Mrs. Theresa Smith of London Ontario, Mrs. Smith was a medical technologist at St. Josephs Hospital in London Ontario, and she knew about the Pap test and elected to have one done.The test showed she had a malignant Tumor on one spot on her cervix which was treated in a series of radiation treatments in the span of six weeks leaving her cancer free ..This is her quote:
" If I had not been working for the cytology department , I wouldn't have had the test, reason being I had no symptoms .I think all women over the age of 25 should have a Pap test every two years- it is simple and to a lot of women uncomfortable yes true, but it can save you so much grief "
That being said what is more uncomfortable ? The short period of time it takes to undergo the test , or the years you can possibly suffer from cancer or otherwise debilitating disorders if you don't take the test?
Many women who don't take this test and are in the early stages of cervical cancer and they don't know it , they blame the Doctors who don't act quickly enough , the blame is not on the Doctors if the women don't get the test periodically as recommended how can one expect to know whats going on with your body ? How advanced is the cancer if its already there ? Only one way to remedy that.
Thanks for reading ..and in no way are the memes intended to lessen the importance and seriousness of the Pap test , but they are intended to make lots of smiles...

Had a really good day today, was out and about after a long reprieve of being on my prosthetic, my skin on my incision got pinched apparently I was sitting with more weight on my stump ,( hate that word) and pinched the areas where the stitches were...when you have no natural balance after losing a leg its hard to adjust....but I did and its coming along .We have another storm coming tomorrow so groceries and wood pellets were on the list of to do's.
The prosthetic is cumbersome and clunky and I didn't realize it would feel so alien after all this time..Of course I have to graduate slowly from Rollerator 4 wheel walker to next step canes..a cane is already used to go up and down the stairs and I have many if I need to go up two flights of 13 plus the landing , geez I am convinced 13 is a not so nice number ....lol going up is easy coming down is so dicey, feel like tipping ahead ...but that I am told will get much easier...next step is to tighten up the belly so the fit will be better...geez didn't I just go and get groceries? awww screw it the diet starts when groceries are gone ...belee dat? not for a second.. thanks for reading my rambling .

How much information is too much?

I noticed now that there is a lot of people willing to divulge information about themselves and its fast becoming the norm with most people when messaging someone for the first time to want to ask personal and private information..I am a bit of a private stays private , unless I actually get to meet someone , staying private.
A lot of people say to others why be on a sex site if you are not willing to talk about these things ? Ok I get that but when you have to be barraged with questions on first messages , or shortly into a conversation about things that you don't wish to discuss with a total stranger..I also notice these things on blogs and advice lines..which again is normal and we do.... I agree have the right to answer or not to answer...
I noticed in reading blogs or advice lines some people get kind of puzzled at seeing you reading and not commenting. That is I feel my right I read because I can , I comment because it interests me and I don't comment if I feel it will do no good in answering stupid questions about my personal and private wants and needs..I don't feel any obligation to give a total stranger my input on any of my private life..

Farmer went into a bar ordered a drink and sat there sipping it looking very depressed, as the bartender walked by he seen the guy was very down and asked why..
Farmer says , " some things you just cant explain, I went to milk the cow this morning and as I just got a good stream of milk into the bucket she reached out with her left leg and kicked the bucket spilling the milk in it, so I get a rope and tied her left leg to a pole.I again just get a good bunch of milk into the bucket and she reached out with her right leg and kicked the bucket spilling the milk , so I got another rope and tied her right leg to the pole on the other side.Went to start milking her again and she swatted me in the face with her shitty tail, I ran out of rope so I took my belt off and was trying to tie her tail to one side ,my pants dropped , my wife walked in , so there is some things you just cant explain,"

One day before classes let out for the day, the teacher asks the kids to write a story that has an ending to be concluded with a moral to the story.
Next day she asks the kids to volunteer to tell their story and remember to conclude with a moral to that story.
Suzie was the first to come forward ," My Dad runs a farm and every Sunday we load the truck with a big basket of eggs and take them to market, last Sunday on our way into town the truck hit a bump and all the eggs went flying out of the basket and splattered all over the road, moral of the story is never put your eggs all in one basket."
Lucy was next she came up to the head of the class and this is her story, " My dad is also a farmer he raises chickens, every weekend we put a dozen eggs in an incubator , this last weekend we put a dozen eggs in and only eight chicks hatched, moral of my story , don't count your chicks till they hatch."
Johnny not to be outdone walked up to the head of the class and told his story, " My Uncle Ted was in the Vietnam war , he was flying over enemy territory when his plane was shot down, as the plane was going down Uncle Ted drank a case of beer and before he landed he grabbed a machine gun and a machete. His plane landed in the middle of enemy territory and there was 100 Vietnamese soldiers.He shot 70 with his machine gun till it ran out of bullets, he killed 20 with his machete then the blade broke so he killed the remaining 10 with his bare hands."
Teacher looking a bit shocked and disturbed cleared her throat and asked him what the moral of the story was
johnny never missing a beat said," Moral of my story is never mess with Uncle Ted when hes been drinking>"

The ghost wheels story!

Well I ventured out to Kingston on Sunday and made the purchase for of ghost wheels for my Motorcycle ..These little gems are very expensive according to the former owner of them .I was online and seen that the basic set costs a bit over 3000.00 and the luxury set close to 6000.00 dollars ..This guy bought them for 2000.00 and never got them on his bike.. He says hes not confident a rider enough to actually use them or ride any longer, after all he is 70 and just decided that he rather spend time with family in BC ..so he advertised them on kijiji which is where I seen them ..My mechanic said go get 'em lol..He is moving to BC and just didn't want to take them with.
This set is run by hydraulics, the pump raises and lowers the wheels , keeps them down or up which ever you prefer whilst riding .They lock down when you stop at lights etc to stabilize the bike and rider , then as you are going they also unlock and you can ride as you normally would , only thing is they also stabilize the bike for the rider , still giving the bike cornering and as if it was on 2 wheels independent hydraulic shocks move with the bikes motion straight or on corners..Here below is a couple of pics the only other pic I can get is vids on you t-u-b-e and they wont load here..

Well that is kind of hard to explain to someone who does not ride...its a different feeling to get on a motorcycle and get your knees in the breeze or face in the wind..Only bikers know the feeling and theres nothing short of a fever when that bug bites...I have biked for 30 years and never get tired of it..I also took the motorcycle safety course when I wanted to see what it was like...the bug bit me when I got on my first bike for the first time..That course saved my life all but the one time..and we first were taught " watch out for the other guy " meaning always be aware of your surroundings...its very true.
My very first bike I bought was a 1986 kawi 454 LTD ...that was the best bike ever..very very low center of gravity and go like stink.. of course you have to pen it up on the highway to see what its gonna do ..lol . I didn't know at the time that bike was not common and now its hard to find one anywhere...rats!! But I owned that bike for a lot of years..sold it to buy a horse..
My second bike was a 2001 Suzuki Savage 650 cc one one hugh cylinder..still went where the big boys went and that was the one I had my accident on...I miss that little bike...
This last bike 1981 classic Suzuki Boulevard bigger bike 850 cc my travelling bike..I bought it in 2016 as a winter project ..sitting on a guys lawn cover shredded and looking so forlorn..I drove by several times before I went in...he came out asked if I liked the bike and if I wanted to buy it I said yes how much? , he said how much you got ? I had 500.00 on me from my pay , offered it he said yes , when you gonna take it..lol I said like right away ...took it home stripped it down and was in the process of putting it back together when I had my accident ...
My mechanic came last Spring and took it to his garage and put it back together ..I now need hand controls and a set of stabilization wheels...Going to Kingston tomorrow to pick up a set of ghost wheels...hydraulic wheels that raise and lower so I have like a trike ...cant wait !
