  1. On the DNA thing. Not so sure I buy the conspiracy theory on the DNA. If the government wanted it they would already have enough. Too easy. They take all hospital, doctor, and so on blood test info and compile it. In order to do DNA research they don't need all the populations info. A select amount is all that is needed. Other than looking for really obscure stuff. I worked on a project several years back that was tied to a company in Europe doing DNA research. They were mapping the human genome. My job was to get the computer storage necessary to hold all the data and set it up for their use. The amount required was so ridiculously large that the project got scaled down. The technology on cpu power and storage density and speed has increased now to a level that it is reasonably workable but still would cost ridiculous amounts of money. Not the kind of dollars you can just hide under the rug, whether you're government or private sector.
  2. Just an opinion from my approach after making mistakes on a very large and expensive project. You're not going to hide from it so don't bother trying to keep a low profile. Go head on. Don't just apologise for messing up. Explain what happened, why it happened, and what you realise you will do moving forward so you don't repeat it. Just saying sorry and taking punishment doesn't help you or the company. Always make sure you know what happened and how to not repeat it. That is the difference between messing up and learning. Either that helps restore some faith in you or it doesn't. Good luck.
  3. Weight day. I think I'm enjoying weight day more than most other workout days, except mountain biking. Had a good day. Doing better at squats, clean & press, tricep dips. Our climbing gym has reopened with very limited capacity. Climing routes are less and very spread out to keep you 10ft away from each other. Masks are required at all times, including when you're on a climb. Hand sanitizers all over. Only downside is they don't clean the climbing routes often enough. So still on the fence about going back at the moment. It suks, we love climbing and were in there 2-3 times a week for a couple of hours at a time. Great workout, great community, enjoy most of the people there.
  4. Not exactly today. Doing it all week and finished last night. I got some carbon fiber wrap and wrapped the wheels on my car with it. So now my wheels look like they are made of carbon fiber. Came out pretty good. I did our other car last month to try the idea out and we liked it enough that I did mine. Hers is a white runabout and did dry black and min dry grey. They both have reflective grey as the second color in the pattern. So they catch your eye in the sun but look deeper when there is less light. The good thing is whenever you get tired of it you can just peel it off and go back to original.
  5. Weather was cool and dry this weekend so we went out on the flat trail to do some endurance riding. Spent a couple of hours. Did one really good sprint to the other end in 35 minutes. About our best time. Took a rest and did a calmer ride back in under 45 minutes. Was definetely pumped after the ride out but it caught up to us on the way back. We should have stretched at the other end after we had a snack but we didn't. We just wandered around on foot for a bit checking out all the other people. Was quite busy at the other end of the trail. Lots of bike, hike and run people moving in and out. Good day overall. Can feel it in my knees and hips today. Going to walk for a bit and do a small project I'm working on.
  6. @Nightjar - It's a balance of risk and reward. Right now risk is very high. Give it a little time until risk gets more inline with reward. In the meantime spend that time ironing out that plan you speak of. Review it several times to make sure its sound. Then let your country girl spirit loose. ☺️
  7. The Punisher series on Netflix. Season 1 was ok, season 2 is slow. Not really worth the watch.
  8. The last slice of 🎃 bread... I ate it really slow. Ummmmmmm. ☺️
  9. Last night was an interesting mix. Tabata for 20 minutes. I don't like Tabata much at all but it does burn up calories quick. Then a nice 20 minute stretch. All upper body. Loosen up tight muscles in neck, shoulders, upper back. Felt really good. I looked in the mirror and saw Nightjar waving at me and Sober patting a cow. 😱. I need a med change, soon...
  10. Sports are back in full swing. Football, basketball, baseball, soccer, racing, and so on. They're doing it all for the fans because we need it. Has nothing to do with big $$$. Nope, just for the fans. Funny, it doesn't make me feel any better. Must just be me. I doubt it'll cause more Covid issues. Everyone will behave properly and wear masks and social distance. It appears that pigs have grown wings and fly now too...
  11. So Hurricane Sally is going to lash out on the Gulf Coast. Chances of 30 inches of rain, that they don't need. What a shame we can't pick her up and drop her over on the West coast. Soak it down good for a month or more worth of rain. Sure would calm down the wildfires for a while. Mother Nature is truly a sad form of irony...
  12. I feel for you folks out west. We're seeing plenty of it on the news and it's just sad. Hope it gets better soon. We're slowly leaving hot and humid to more temperate weather. Evenings are starting to cool down and day is supposed to start cooling down. Lower humidity is always welcome.
  13. Update: Carb Cycling experiment. We are now intrenched in this diet and finding a good balance. Will be make modifications again this week to up our calories but manage carbs. So it appears if you go keto you calculate net carbs. Meaning you take fiber and eriythrotol and subtract them as your body doesn't actually process them like regular carbs. Fiber just passes through. Eriythrotol acts like sugar without the glycemic index hit (stuff diabetics can't handle). We've also changed all our snacks to a set of L-M-H carb groups depending on what we need. We're eating really clean with little junk food. We allow chocolate. Since taking chocolate away from women is a way to make them really grumpy, I'm all in with this idea... Lol... She's lost 3-4 pounds and I've lost about 5 pounds. The good news is also that we have increased muscle percentage by a few points. So we are burning fats at a decent pace without going full on keto. Which we don't want to do. A couple more pounds and we start cycling the total calories up since we feel hungry still and we're making progress. The goal is not to feel hungry a lot and keep weight level. If our weight increases then it needs to be mostly in muscle. This program will work. So the idea of being too old, male/female, menopause, depression, etc doesn't stop it. To me that is good news for many of us here. Depression should not stop you from getting a handle on your weight. Even if the med you take tends to make you put on weight. You can adjust what you eat and exercise to get it around it. It beats seats on the couch and giving up folks, really, it does.
  14. Last 2 days were cardio. 1 day of traditoonal medium intensity and 1 day of MMA workout. Today is weights. Moving along. We went walking and found our little bunny hanging out on our porch when we got back. He really likes one of our flowers and munches on the leaves. So far not hurting the flowers. We've been feeding him lettuce and zuccini and he seems to like it. There are lots or rabiits in our area now.
  15. @sober4life - What she said! ( @jkd_sd ). I felt that guilt horrible 2 years ago when I put mom in the nursing home. It is the begging of the end. I knew that. I also knew that I COULD NOT care for her 24/7 like they can. This is the right thing and you did GOOD. Stop blaming yourself. This is not what you did. This is life. As jkd_sd said, go visit her often, put a smile on her face, show her you love her. That is what you can do and that speaks volumes.
