Beans Thursday, Pizza Friday?
I've taken to enjoying (small portions of) Bush's baked beans Brown Sugar and Bourbon flavored.
They are pretty tasty. I would like to 'cut' the a bit by adding an equal amount of non-sweetened beans, though. Almost all baked beans are a bit too sweet for me. I like a little flavor, but not too much.

The phrase "anal bleaching" makes me think of laundry. Must be worse than ring-around-the-collar.

I only buy B&M Baked Beans http://www.bgfoods.com/ ... as the factory is in my city, mostly I think they are the best. Not too sweet if you get the right variety. I pass it every day (i'll setup the Flip and take a video...) and some times you can smell the beans cooking. It's great.

Here's a photo someone else took of the factory. The bridge is I-295.

Oh yeah, my baked beans were great! Made some corn bread (not from a box man, no!) to go with...
The recipe was a little sweet this time for my taste but the rest of the family liked.

Well, Friday I get the big splint removed and get to start with the small velcro splint. Whoopee.

Of course that doesn't do anything for the glaucoma they diagnosed in my very weak left eye; but now I know why.

Small data point on the EMR thing (electronic medical records)

Had my physical last week.
Computerized office, doctors and nurses carry laptops.
Got the printed results and recommendations.
They are mixed up, combining info from me and apparently from somebody else.

I lost 50 pounds for one thing (according to their records)
Have sun damage on my back that I've never heard of.
So what to believe regarding the blood tests and prescription for heavy vitamin D deficiency.
They are reviewing and sending a new copy.

No 9000 computer has ever made a mistake or distorted information. We are all, by any practical definition, foolproof and incapable of error.

It can only be attributable to human error.

I know I've made some very poor decisions recently.

What a journey.
Yesterday I had two meals (pretty average meals, too) that did not make me sick.
It was like a breath of fresh air. Today has been pretty good, too. Except for the recent food intake. (snack)

Lunch was very strange yesterday. I had most of a whole, regular sized burger that I grilled out. With lettuce, mayo, mustard, cheese. And some mashed potatoes, and chips and salsa. It did not even SLIGHTLY bother me.

I kept waiting, and waiting for the other shoe to drop, and to start feeling ill. But it did not come. It was SO NICE not to get sick even a little from eating.

Now, I just need to string together a few of those meals/days and I will be on my way! I also have gained about 5 pounds from my low that I have recently dropped to.

My recent CT scans came back clear late last week, too. So, with the terminology they use, no signs of new or recurring metatastic disease. (I think that is the term they used) My sister when I told her was very happy. I guess I have not noticed this, but she must have thought that the way I have been lately that something must have come back or cropped up. She was was so relieved. For me, I cannot let myself get too up or down with any news. I just want to stop getting sick when I eat, and gain more weight. And I need to see consistent results/trends in this area. Two days will not cut it. I have to keep fighting to put as many calories down as I can, and think happy thoughts! :)

Beautiful day today, too.

Good to hear you're clear, Bill!

Sounds like you're shadowing the Steve'd one's problems pretty directly.

Burgers cure everything. Great news, Bill.

Argh. Between my poor eyesight (need to get those bifocals, dammit) and my declining dexterity, it took me about a half-hour to manage the six screws necessary to put a hard drive in an Icy Dock enclosure. Damn hands.

I'm beginning to wonder if I've developed Chron's disease. I will take this up with my doctor next week.

Ack JC sorry, don't say it's true EJ...

I had MRI on my knee ... haven't met for follow up yet. Small potatoes really, prelim arthritis. Just hope it's not my Mom's osteo-arthritis inherited which gives her great pain. She sure soldiers on though, amazing really at 75. I feel too young to lose mobility so hope I can get out of this.
