Ok.. went to the Doc this morning, and he's approved my going to a neurologist to see if there are any other alternatives to surgery. I'm doing reasonably well, so I've got high hopes and reasonable expectations. The insurance company has been hassling me doctor terribly, to the point of him mentioning, "I know it's not your fault, but they've disrupted the whole office with incessant requests and pointless forms." Apparently, they're under the doctor has orders now to put stuff in a file (I imagine circular) and just contend directly a maximum 2 times a week, and ignore the rest.

I wonder how things with my brother went at the courthouse today... I hope everything got sewn up with a minimum of fuss.

While I wait for 11 to roll along...

Cincinnati's Abandoned Subway System
I am a sucker for abandoned places, especially tunnels. The adventure possibilities are endless. Morlocks. Gene Hackman - Luthor's lair from the first Superman movie. The Beauty & the Beast TV series. Grant Morrison's Invisibles.

Brutal tragedy ends storied tale

The internationally famous research by two Canadian naturalists showing that grizzly bears in the snow-swept Russian wilderness can live peacefully with humans has ended in a brutal tragedy, The Globe and Mail has learned.

The dozens of massive Siberian grizzly bears whose lives were catalogued for the groundbreaking eight-year study have been slaughtered in their nature sanctuary as a message to the Canadian researchers, Charlie Russell and Maureen Enns, to abandon the project. Their research has been the subject of a PBS television documentary, a best-selling book and hundreds of news stories across three continents.

I'm always a little beat after visiting the doctor... Stress and stretch checks to see how far I've come. I need to make sure Liberty doesn't hose me, and that a backup plan is in place.
2:36 pm
prop2's husband is in the clink... Was AWOL last night, and her family isn't posting bond for one reason or another.
5:23 pm
a lot of curiosity in my mind... Bro, coworkers, the future... I'm able to keep a positive mindset so far, fortunately. I see good things on the horizon.
5:39 pm
revised 55 is slower on the return trip - note focus on following day's objectives and maybe do time sheet then.
6:00 pm
Just got in and had the following info bits added

  • Bro - Monday moving to the new place, court went ok, I'll have a chance to spend some more time with him this weekend.

  • one of the apartments in this building is for rent. I hope it's Frankie moving on to other things.

  • Cathi's dad got a tracheotomy / will have a voice box put in, hopefully they caught all of his throat cancer.

  • I dropped and broke a plate. Newt didn't like being sealed in the bathroom as I cleaned up. Not one little bit.
