RE: Maybe when I get a little older

almost 68, still working part time in my profession, no plans to retire. For some retirement is best thing they ever did for others not so much. Retirement is an industry, 99% of the talk is about money, with 1% on what it is you are going to do. I live by "enough money to sleep well. enough purpose in life to need to get up" That old easy chair has a powerful suction. But whatever works for someone is great by me, but for me alone I think retiring would be a poor choice for myself

RE: Rv loan rates!

Way too much talk about money and way too little talk about life. First, I do not want to pay interest. I avoid it if at all possible. But I value life more than money. Better to pay a little interest, than wait in my opinion. Kids grow up we get old. I am a fan of do it while you can.

RE: Odd Experience While Camping - Lesson Learned

I am 100% behind your decision to want family time alone without a stranger. I suspect what you ran into was an extremely lonely old man. May have just lost his wife kids may live far away. He may have been well aware he was being pushy, but his loneliness overcame that. Or he could have been a crazy axe murderer, who knows but I suspect the former. 30 years ago, used to dread mowing the lawn, as the widowed old guy next door, would always want to come out and chat. Then I got old and widowed now I understand

RE: What are these

Google lists an old minuteman missile base outside of Sidney as you may know the command and control was some distance from the actual silos, Bunkers could be radar installation or HQ

RE: Medicare For Full Timers

OP you might consider looking at "plan G" high deductible, much cheaper than plan G about a third. I have it, no complaints. I also tend to self-insure like you, so was good choice for me

RE: Sleep apnea

As someone who suffers with a degree of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) which requires CPAP treatment, has read a lot about it, but not as professional advice or opinion: With all due respect to you and this Chiropractor who appears earnest and well-meaning: 1) OSA can only at this time be diagnosed by a formal sleep study 2) during such a study you are asleep for much of the time and therefore unaware of how your breathing, oxygen levels etc are. The sleep study is an objective one, providing measurements which can be used to diagnose and grade the quality of your sleep and the grade of severity of any OSA present and provide a way of comparing your OSA over time by doing more sleep studies if needed. Where as your feelings etc about your sleep and how much better or worse you feel with no or some treatment are subjective - there are no measurements to back up and validate your feelings and observations ( and in any case you are asleep when your OSA happens so what observations can you make)? I wonder if you maybe scrambled two posts? I being the Chiropractor, you maybe referencing to, posted on epidural steroid injection thread in Rving with disabilities, not this thread. Sleep apnea is not my area of expertise. I would not have an informed opinion on sleep apnea

RE: Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

As a Chiropractor, I order about a dozen ESI'S a year. I could write paragraphs on this, but just to give you ideas. 1) Low back and leg pain have different cases, ESI's work better for some than other low back pain causes 2) literature says about 50% effective, I feel when combined with manipulation more like 75% 3) Doc is going to read the MRI, and make a judgement call on what he thinks the pain generator is and inject at that point. He/she will put you under a fluoroscope, and guide the needle placement to that specific part of your spine 4) If they hit the right spot, relief will be pretty quick. (Called guided image injection) If no relief, that too is of value, because it rules that area out as the pain generator. Remember they are making an educated guess as to what is causing the pain, and sometimes they are wrong. So that will help with 2nd shot placement, and or surgery 5) Many times, it will be enough to calm down the nerve, and the patient may have long term relief 6) I always refer to a neuroradiologist, that is what these folks do every day. They tend to be better at it that most Orthopedic folks. And same for surgery a neurosurgeon is your best bet Just to hazard a guess, from your MRI findings, sounds like you may have what's called lateral canal stenosis, super common finding. ESI's do pretty well with that, along with exercise, ergonomics, manipulation combined with it. If it comes to surgery, you might consider (MISS) minimally invasive spine surgery. Which is more like a rotor rooter job, than full on surgery with sawing away stuff and putting in all the hardware. Hope it all works out for you

Dog biscuits and bugs

This might be something to file away, if it happens to you. Last few weeks lots of little brown bugs invaded the kitchen, could not for the life of us figure out what they were, or where they were coming from. Turns out they were "warehouse beetles" and they had come in via a package of dog biscuits we had bought. Apparently according to google, dog food is a common way for these to be brought into the house. As I said, just kind of a heads up, if it happens to you, they don't bite and they are not harmful,

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

"In my opinion, we have as a country, gotten meaner and more tribal then anytime I can recall. Pretty sad." I beg to disagree, it's just reported more often, and in greater detail than it has been in the past. Many things simply didn't get told in the past, now it is much tougher to hide things we would rather simply not see. As far as more tribal, consider the KKK from around the turn of the century, the Black Panthers from 50 years ago, and now the local out-there militias. They've always been around, but now there's so many cameras out there, very little doesn't get light shone on it, like it or not. I agree with you on the media thing 100%. But my take (and I get it is a small sample in my little world), But I have been in health care a very long time. Think primary care stuff, so I listen and talk to the patients. I cannot recall hearing what I hear now from the average Joe patient, very much more tribal I would like to be wrong and hope I am, or maybe I am senile who knows, just don't recall such strong opinions, that is where my statement comes from.

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

I think you folks do a good job moderating; pretty thankless I would think. Pokes are one thing. Nothing wrong with that. It's the in-your-face venomous ones, that are what I was referring too. And I am guessing those hardcore posts drive away many more people than they attract In my opinion, we have as a country, gotten meaner and more tribal then anytime I can recall. Pretty sad.

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

I get tired of the politics, seems like some folks (both on the left and right) will take every possible opportunity, to interject their world view, no matter how of topic it is, complete with name calling. And act like they are authorities on ever subject. If someone says "in my opinion" that is one thing. But when they act like they are superior to the rest of us mere mortals that is hard to take Just My opinion!!!

RE: Anyone Cancelling Truck Camper Trips Due to Fuel Prices?

. I am a member of the died to soon, wife club. And I would tell all of you this. Screw the money, unless it will put you out on the street, do it and do it now. If you do not you may well live to regret it. Think about life, not a buck or two either way
