Last month- i went for my 1st colonoscopy.
Despite some breathing/apnea issue, found only 1 polyp which was benign.
Good news- i lost 10 pounds of crap, but they still couldn't find what crawled up there and died.

I'm 37, and I've had 6 colonoscopies and 3 MRI with barium, or whatever they make me drink. it's gross. Welcome to the club!

Did you do anything funny after coming out of anesthesia? On my first, I told me wife I was James Bond, pulled out my finger pistol and said "pew pew" as I shot her.

Nice, did you get a plain flip phone or a nicer smart phone? We use tracfone and pay around $80 a year for a new phone and one year of service. Weirdly it is cheaper to get a new phone and service than just to buy the service itself.

i went to Verizon..i didnt want a new phone, and they said i was covered up to 700....so a Iphone 12 was in my option and works great so far.
i am locked in for 3 yrs at the 80$ plan. The dude was great setting it up and all the acessories i needed.
Busy now- changing phone numbers from banking and doctors and etc.

Its impressive to have waited so long to get one. I was one of the kids waiting in line for hours to get the original iPhone and I have a hard time picturing life without one now (or similar type device). Family, friends, business, its the best tool for most of my life. Though every time I see my usage statistics, I start to think those who dont have a cell at all might be the wiser and better among us for not being tuned in to the rest of the world 24/7/365.

Heck i am 45+ now, and its gotten where my banking & doctors want to verify identity thru text and i was unable to do that. So i was being forced basically to get one and trying to rely on my brothers phone was being a bit bothering to him.

Give you credit for holding out but sad that you missed great stuff in between. My elder parents were not tech savy but they were one of the first to jump on board and loved it for Facetime ot communicate and see the grandkids play, perfrom etc.
And Mom used it to read and surf the web and dad to watch movies and sports.

Congrats and enjoy

I request modern card donations on Twitter. Last year I received 12 x 400 count boxes + 5 packs per kid; enough for my little league team. This year I expanded the operation. I received 10k cards. I collated them so no one received doubles. I (or WE) donated 29 x 400 count boxes at opening day ceremonies. They were randomly given away at the ceremonies we held in early May. This year, the desire of kids who wanted cards exceeded my supply. It was very fulfilling to watch. My two kids kept telling others, "My daddy did that. My daddy brought the cards."

If anyone wants to donate modern cards (2022 - present) please contact me. I guarantee you they will get into the hands of kids.

I can understand that. In 2004 I moved from Mass to D.C. while working for a Fortune 100 company. I did not keep in touch with anyone so I did not need a cell phone. A few years later they had this offer from Verizon - 20% corporate discount on every plan. I said what the heck and got a free flip phone with 50 minutes per month (yes, minutes!) for $20 per month. A few years ago my wife paid $99 to replace the original one when it no longer held a charge. It was a 3G phone. Last year they sent me a 4G flip phone for free and upped my calling to unlimited with no contract. I paid $22 last month. Even though I left the company 14 years ago I still get the corporate discount. In all of the years I had the 50 minutes I only exceeded it twice while travelling and needing to call my wife. Most months I used no minutes. I don't text, tweet, take pictures or anything else. To me it is just a phone. A few weeks ago they sent me an offer for a supposed free 'smart' phone - Samsung Galaxy 5G. They also offered the competitor, but I don't do the cult of Apple. For sh#ts and giggles I may check out the offer as there is a Verizon store in the mall across the street from my complex.

Thanks to the generosity of fellow Net54 member Clydepepper, I gave my 10 yo summer baseball team individual 400 ct boxes of cards at our end of season party. He sent the kind of cards you might imagine kids would love! Chrome, Panini, shiny, pop, and sparkle. Plus Heritage, Topps base, Bowman Draft. We had a great time and the kids were excited. Sorry there aren't more pictures. The best quote from a mother was "Nicholas! You wash the pizza grease off your fingers before you touch those!" My wife talked to another boy, first year player, and he had recently received his first cards. She said he was all aflutter about receiving this box of cards. His dad walked up to my wife and I while they were leaving and said, "I've never seen someone do that. You're alright." Finally, for those of you whose cards met the fate of bicycle spokes, you would have been proud of the young man in the picture whose cards were spread all over the table. He handled those cards like a boy who doesn't see $$$. He wanted to show me his best players, and his Mike Trout had a nice crisp crease through the corner just like it had been clothe pinned to bike wheels.

My son attended a local BMX camp this weekend. He has a need for speed. Anyway, he broke his wrist earlier this summer and missed sports for 6 weeks, including most of BMX season. But he's restarting with camp and then hopefully he can get in a month of riding before school starts and hockey takes over. This will be our first hockey season. He will be 10u.

If you have never done BMX, we have found it to be a wonderful family environment. It's worth a try if your kid is into racing.

A former student of mine, Kenneth Rooks, will be competing in the 3000m Steeplechase at the Track and Field World Championships in Budapest, Hungary, on August 23. He just became the US Champion in July. He is set to become a senior at BYU in just a couple weeks. He was my student at College Place High School, WA.

My oldest son, who is a PhD grad student in astrophysics, just got his first paper published. It's far above my level of understanding, but if there are any astrophysicists or even physicists on the board who want to give it a shot, I'd be happy to forward a link. Very happy for him. He worked hard to get where he is.

He's having a year he'll never forget. He wasn't allowed to enter a professional race in LA in May because the organizer thought he wouldn't be competitive. He was listed as an alternate and eventually won the race. Then he won the NCAA steeplechase championship. Then he won the US Championship. And now here he is in Budapest. I couldn't be happier for him! And I think he recently got engaged, but I can't confirm that. But the girl had a ring on her finger.

CONGRATS! My wife had her senior thesis published. It was a huge achievement for her. I have her publication on my trophy cabinet. She likes seeing it near my prized baseball items.

Entered my collage in the fair and I got a blue ribbon the size of my pinky. Fine Art was the only exhibit to give away ribbons that size. Everyone who sees it gets a very good laugh. My son won his for guessing the champion pig during pig racing. It's a lot of fun if you've never seen it! And... someone at the fair left their name and number hoping to buy it. I'm not sure I want to sell, but if they make me an offer I can't refuse, I guess it's worth considering.
