Don't ever feel apologetic about that MM. People care about you and want you to be safe and happy. Holding it in won't fix things. Best of luck and hope you are truly feeling better.

Thanks Jim. It might be the hardest thing I've ever done.

See you on the other side.


I’m so happy for you Les! This is amazing.

It was only an hour or two but when I awoke at 3:50 this morning it felt bizarre to realize I had been unconscious for some time. Nausea is gone and I feel I am over the worse part. This morning I made my favorite green tea and listened to Eno's The Ship, I'm Set Free was particularly poignant. I can't believe how much better I feel this morning. I think I can see the finish line.


Brilliant news Les. I hope your recovery continues apace.

I'm interviewing for communications manager for a regional transit agency that services 175,000 people a day and over 52 million a year.

Having been in the industry before, I'm doing some prep work for this afternoon's interview by looking at their most recent ridership study.

12 routes in Oakland and Berkeley comprise over 50% of daily riders so I hope to have that little factoid in my bag of tricks when talking to them.

There were some brutal days. Three hours of sleep total over four days. Last night I finally got 4-5 hrs which is the most at one time for a week so I've been pretty compromised.

Sounds like you are through the worst of it, Les. I hope you have found other ways to manage the pain effectively and can move on.

Thanks. Today I'm feeling pretty normal though I've only been up for 45 minutes. This is day eight so I should be done with most symptoms. Rough road and glad I'm at the end of it.

Man, got a gout flare up last night. Problem is, I can't think of the trigger of anything I ate or drank to cause it. I'm very careful these days.

I've heard BCB can cause gout.

Beautiful weather in the Bay Area this weekend. I shot around at a local school's outside courts two days in a row. Haven't done that in awhile.

I used to go down to the park near my house nearly every night to get a couple shots up.

Bought a new ball so now I have less excuse.

I just found $540 in a piece of furniture I photographed!

We can access YouTube on our TV, and every morning, my son watches YouTube star PewDiePie videos. I asked my son what was the attraction, because I see none.

Then, I thought about it, and my parents thought the same thing about SNL, Cheech and Chong, Richard Pryor, and George Carlin.

It's a reefer legalization miracle!
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D
