  1. Son of a B

    by , 11-26-2008 at 01:07 PM (Greybeard's Brain Blog)
    Well, I got a call from Barrow last night and the message was that I am being referred over to another Dr in the group (the one who found the worm in the woman's brain in PHX last week.)

    The funny thing is he is the guy who was supposed to have placed my stents three years ago and went on vacation the day I got there so someone else did it and of course "The Master" did my craniotomy. I only have a couple of more associates to hit in the group and have plenty of brain with which they ...

  2. Living in Interesting Times

    by , 11-26-2008 at 12:01 AM
    Since it's public knowledge, I can state that work has been interesting lately (in the Chinese curse kind of way) due to this requirement that no employee can insert a jump drive into one of our computers. It's not a hardware problem; it's a security problem.

    And now we're working on procedures to transfer data without using jump drives.

    Hint: If you're looking for a stock investment, maybe a company that sells blank CDs and DVDs would be a good investment.

  3. Thankful for my third anniversary

    by , 11-25-2008 at 04:21 PM (Greybeard's Brain Blog)
    Can you believe it? Friday marks three years from my stroke and then another week after that marks three years from the placement of the stents. You have been listening to me whine about my condition for three whole years and never stopped supporting me. (It just seems like 10 years)
    You lot have been unflagging in your support to me and never let me get to far in the hole, and I was pretty deep.

    In my heart of hearts I just want to be how I was. I have blimped up, I continue ...

  4. (For)getting Results

    by , 11-25-2008 at 04:21 AM
    A friend of mine--a former Olympian who has recently become a full-time coach--was lamenting recently that his students (all youth fencers) weren't getting competitive results. Between the pressures from the club owner, his students' parents, and his own pride, he was becoming very frustrated that the group he'd been working with for less than a year wasn't doing well competitively.

    The problem in his thinking was one that is exceedingly common: he was worrying about his results and ...

  5. 17 days and counting

    by , 11-24-2008 at 08:50 PM
    The day began as it always does with a hot shower followed by knee and elbow exercises and then shoulder exercises. No weights today. A bag of peas on the shoulder and a cup of ice on the elbow for ten minutes before heading to work.

    After work, I went to the gym and did the usual warm-up and then 60 minutes for 4.0 miles on the ET followed by a few crunches while icing the knee for ten minutes. Into the hot tub for the usual bend-the-hand-forward exercises with the newly added bend-the-hand-backward ...
