• Practice And More

    From Daryl Stout@454:1/33 to Barry Martin on Sun Jul 19 14:19:00 2020
    Barry,

    Haven't we discussed this before?? Or have we also said not to
    be repetitive?? <G>

    Oh! I thought we were practicing, which means to go over it again.

    That's what doctors do...practice medicine. :P

    There's a city and county just upriver from here named Clinton. No
    idea who it was named for. <checking> Named for DeWitt Clinton,
    governor of New York and helped to get the Erie Canal built.

    Yet, if it offends someone, they want it removed. Sounds like the scale
    to weigh yourself on in the medical center. <G>

    I'll have to investigate some day. I go past the Pizza Ranch
    (restaurant) frequently and they have signs outside indicating their buffet is open. Their pre-COVID-19 buffet table layout and area was
    large enough they possibly could rearrange a bit and line them up so servers could be on the kitchen side and give food to the customers
    lining up on the other side. Not sure how the 6' thing would be maintained. ...Maybe the customers stay at their table and the servers come by with a 'dessert cart' under a dome (clioche - something like
    that) and so select/reject the offering.

    I have no clue. But, with finances being tighter than a frog's butt underwater this month, I'm eating at home...lunch meat sandwiches, dill
    pickle potato chips, and diet green tea citrus...with some sandwich
    cookies for dessert.

    I do admit to sort of dreading that device! And while it would be nice
    to get rid of everything that reminds me of anything remotely bad there
    is a good reason to have the reminder - don't do it again!

    We have good news and bad news: as I type this it's the 20th, so July is
    2/3rds over. Bad news is July is one of those 31 day months.

    Barry,

    "Let's ee what happens with this patient!"

    I liked the tagline with the mixup of Bounty and Viagra. :P

    Or the "man-o-gram"...if women ruled the world. Compared to the woman's breasts being put between the 2 metal plates, I'll give you 3 guesses what
    the man has to put between the 2 metal plates, and the first 2 guesses don't count. :P

    We have good news and bad news: as I type this it's the 20th, so July
    is 2/3rds over. Bad news is July is one of those 31 day months.

    I had to call Terminix this morning and delay the payment of this month's bill until August 3. Too many unexpected expenses after surgery last month.

    It would seem there would be a better way to conduct the radiograph but squishing to a more consistent distance so more tissue is in focus does
    make sense. An X-ray scan of various depths would create give to much
    of a radiation dose to the patient.

    Hopefully they don't retaliate the delayed payment with a delayed
    treatment to the rats.

    For a testicular scan, that can be uncomfortable (as any pressure on the testicles is). But, in looking for tumors or other abnormalities, it has to
    be done. While males have our problems, the women have theirs.

    Hopefully they don't retaliate the delayed payment with a delayed treatment to the rats.

    Well, if only one gets caught on a glue board or in a trap every few
    months (I'd obviously prefer it at zero), I won't complain too much. Yet,
    the contract I have states that if any evidence of rats is seen, anytime through 2025, they'll come out, and do whatever's necessary, at their
    expense. Now, with COVID-19, there may be a shortage on staffing, but
    that can't be helped.

    Squishing The Guys could create some rather nasty consequences!

    As long as they provide reasonable service and keep informed of
    delays should be OK. While it would be nice to have the rat caught at 3
    a.m. removed immediately it isn't going to happen even in normal times.

    It does that.

    Barry,

    Definitely. Look at all the cameras at the traffic signals.

    Only 3 months and it's back to Standard Time.
