The morning starts at minus 8 with nary a puff of wind. At 7:00 a.m., dawn is but a hint of pale orange in the east, but enough to see a partially overcast sky. Forecast for today is zero, which is fine by me.

Yesterday I wrote of my anticipation of spending time with my former co-workers, as we do each month. Alas it was not to be. I had an unexpected event at work, and wound up being busy until 1:00 p.m..

That was when the numbness started in my left arm. Since I have some nerve damage in my left hand, the numbness was written off to just that, but an hour later it turned to pain.

Since so much of my heart is dead from three heart attacks, I do not feel Angina, even if I have it, so I must rely on other indicators to detect it. I countered by using my nitro spray and waiting the mandatory five minutes to see if it would relieve me. It didn't.

My wife, who is an RN insisted I get in the car and we headed for the emergency room. During the ride, about five minutes long, I used the nitro again. By now we were at the emergency room parking lot waiting to see if the nitro would work. Again nothing.

So I took the last spray before calling for medical assistance. Thankfully it worked and the pain in my arm eased, although remained somewhat numb.

I spent the rest of the day propped up on the couch with my Powerbook G4 reading these threads. Today, I feel fine and am grateful for yet another day in this wonderful life!

Happy Grey Cup weekend to all.

Sinc, that must have been a firghtful experience. I can just imagine being online with a person who suddenly starts to experience this sort of problem. Still, it is good to hear that you are feeling better today. I just turned 55 last month, and I am determined to get back into shape. I have lost 26 pounds, and want to lost another 26 pounds to get to where I would like to be weight wise. I feel better now and while I don't like snow, I am more able this year to handle the 4-7 meters that might fall between December and April. We shall see.

Thanks again for the .Mac mail.

Dr. G., in seven short months I will be 60, so I like to err on the side of caution. I have gone from 206 lbs to 188 and my target is 176. (I Am 5' 11") Walking, using my treadmill and my stationery bike all help. Since the sun has suddenly appeared, and the temp is up to plus 2, I am off for a walk to the local, some 15 minutes away at a brisk pace, for a pint of Guiness and then return. By the way, a daily pint is the motivation for my exercise. No workout, no pint. Since I love a pint, I do the work! Cheers.

Sinc, I cut out beer entirely this summer, since summertime is the only time I enjoy drinking beer. I do like Jewish wine, which is actually good for one's heart. I do not smoke and try to walk wherever I go that is close to home and would make driving there more of a bother than it is worth. Trying to keep my stress down as well. I may be facing eye surgery next month, or early in the new year, but that's in the hands of my eye surgeon (literally). We shall see (no pun intended).

Rainy autumn day in Missisauga - excellent to curl up with the first of the 20 O'Brien books about naval warfare in the Napoleonic era.
If you haven't, go see the movie.....a first class adventure treat - accurate and gorgeously filmed.
A Canadian had a big hand in the accurate portrayal.



Battle cry for accuracy

As dawn breaks it reveals a muted gray sky with very little wind, no precipitation expected and a temperature of minus 12. The good news is the high for today is to be plus 3. Perhaps we shall see the sun later on in the day.

Today is the CFL Grey Cup game, Canada's biggest one-day party. I guess that makes tomorrow Canada's biggest hangover day. I plan to watch the pre-game show, and the game too, with my wife, who also enjoys the sport. Our two sons and our daughter will join us for the festivities.

That should occupy us from about 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.. Time well wasted in my opinion.

I will likely break my healthy heart diet and have a few of the forbidden things that I am only allowed once or twice a year. Like Lays potato chips for example - YUM! (Bet I can't eat just one!) And perhaps an ale or two.



GO EDMONTON GO!

Sinc, sunny and +5C here in St.John's. 'Tis a perfect day to finally get to raking the leaves, although there are still many on the trees. Go figure. Have a fine day, and have "just one" Lays potato chip for me.

It is minus 8 at 7:00 a.m. Very heavy overcast has kept it dark this morning. There is usually some light by this time. Today's high to be plus 2 with some precipitation. Clear or white is the question, or perhaps a mix of both. I am off to downtown Edmonton at the noon hour to welcome back our Eskimos from their victory in Regina yesterday. Have a great day everyone!

Sinc, +2C and sunny here in St.John's this morning.

I promised you an EE victory in the Grey Cup, but I guess I was a bit off on the final score. Oh well, maybe I shall turn my attention to the NHL season. Anyone want a Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton or Vancouver Stanley Cup???? Personally, I am pulling for the NY Rangers, but, as tradition would have it, I am not able to work miracles for MY team, on the teams of others.
