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 […]

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Title Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Developer Ubisoft Type Action RPG Platform(s) XBox One, PS4, PC (reviewed on XBox) Kelly Score ™ 80/ 100

I’ve been playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey for a few weeks now. I think I can form a personal opinion: it is good, excellent in parts, but struggles somewhat under a […]

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.

Brain hole: not exactly as illustrated…

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 […]

Recovering ‘lost’ pre-WordPress blog content from PHPNuke

I upgraded this site from PHPNuke to WordPress in 2005.  The cut over was rather abrupt and poorly thought out by yours truly.  At the time, I believed I had successfully migrated all of my old content to the new environment.  But several years later (!!), I realized the migration had left any article […]

A gentleman’s pocket knife…

Many years ago, in my late 20s, I briefly had the habit of carrying a pocket knife. It wasn’t a very good knife to be honest: I’m not sure where I got it from. But I liked having it- it was handy, particularly given the fact that I was living a somewhat ‘rural’ life […]

Road Glide: fast idle with ‘fly by wire’ throttle

My 2011 Road Glide is my ‘baby’, and when something starts behaving a bit odd I generally notice it fairly quickly. Twice now, once last fall and again just this past week, my bike has suddenly started idling at over 2,200 RPM. The normal idle is about 1,200 RPM, and the high idle revs make […]
