Secretlab’s Titan: Because sitting is important…

I have been uncomfortable in my office chair for a year or so. It was a perfectly nice ‘executive style’ chair, but not long after the warranty ran out a couple of years ago it started to ‘list’ to one side by about 10 degrees. This abnormal sitting position was accompanied by a ‘rocking’ […]

2020 Rize-X: a couple of months with a lazy human

I posted here back in January about ordering an eBike and how I reached my decision to do so. I’ve had that bike, a 2020 Rize-X, for a couple of months now- more than enough time to develop some opinions….

Sad goodbye to our ghost cat, Nimbus

Yesterday was our last day with Nimbus. He wasn’t feeling or looking ‘right’ for some time, with obvious signs of abdominal abnormality as well as reduced activity.

Adding an e-Bike to the garage

It has been snowing a lot here in Cloverdale the past week or so. This naturally leads me to start thinking about Spring, from which follows feeling out of shape, and somehow mumbly-jibbly-brain stuff bicycling.

Bicycling is something I used to do out of necessity. From about six years of age, I always had a […]

Road trip 2019: Motorcycle pilgrimage to the Harley Davidson Museum

Getting out on my bike has become less of a common thing the last couple of years.  The reasons are not terribly interesting: disruptions in health, work pressures, depression.  But I still build up a need for two wheel therapy, probably even more so than when I was riding every weekend.  And so I’ve focused […]

I CPAP, U CPAP, we all CPAP…

I have had an interesting year or so for me in terms of health. Strange pains and fear of tumours culminating in discovery of damage from a couple ’silent strokes’, tiredness and increased depression leading to a finding of extremely low testosterone: aging sucks.

My testosterone treatments have been helping a lot with my […]

My strange medical journey continues: ‘Roids, statins, and brain holes

I have holes in my brain.  As I discussed in my previous post on this topic, the next diagnostic planned was a CT scan with contrast, and the analysis is back in.

A Series of Unexpected Events: My Strange Medical Journey

First it was a sore nipple…

It all started with a sore nipple and a lump that I noticed in May of 2018.  Why do men have nipples anyway?  It is the very definition of ‘useless’, starring in phrases such as ‘like tits on a boar’.  But we guys have them, and sometimes things […]
