Why are bicycles stable? The most common answer is gyroscopic effects, but this is not right. This video was sponsored by Kiwico. Get 50% off your first month of any crate at kiwico.com

At a street fair in NM, a guy had set up a booth with an unrideable bike. I was sure I could do it, but I couldn’t. All a person had to do was ride from line A to line B without putting a foot down. His bike had reverse steering. Pushing the right side of the handlebar turned the front wheel right, pulling it turned left.

This video showed me why I couldn’t do it.

Amazing how I’ve never actually thought about how that works. But now that I’ve seen it demonstrated it makes perfect sense.

I went to the grocery store today. First time I’ve left the house since 11/12. Less than half the people were masked. We have enough food to get us through the next couple of weeks at least, maybe longer. The only things they were out of were potato chips. Tons of marked down turkeys, there was even beef at semi reasonable prices.

Husband is sick again. Sore throat, chills, aches, most likely the flu. He has a doc appt for his annual physical tomorrow, I told him to ask for a throat culture to rule out strep. On Dec 7 I have to take him to a pain specialist to do an experimental surgery for a pain blocking gizmo that may help his back pain. It stays on the outside, except for sensors that go into his spine. If it works the little control panel/box thing gets implanted in his body at a later date. I’m hoping it works, but am worried because he already has in implanted defibrillator in his chest. All these devices carry risks, but he can hardly move without being in agony and opioids don’t work, neither do weed based edibles. Fingers crossed.

I’m going to go take a well deserved nap. I came home and cleaned up some more and I am exhausted. Be back this evening at some point. ❤️

Amazing how I’ve never actually thought about how that works. But now that I’ve seen it demonstrated it makes perfect sense.

I’d even seen explanatory videos of the phenomenon before, but it is subtle in action, to the point that thinking about it is not helpful. The body does it. With my current vestibular deficiency, I think it should be impossible to ride a bike, but I do it. In the early days, post-head injury, I fell over a few times, usually at very slow speed. Once at a stop, in a street. They say you never forget how to ride a bike. They are wrong.

Hello everybody!
Survived the parathyroid surgery, but they couldn’t find one of the four parathyroid nodes — one where it was supposed to be, two the surgeon transplanted to better locations and the last one is still playing hide and seek and probably giggling like a toddler. The surgeon, who does about 300 of these operations a year, says 2-3% of patients have this problem. She poked all around my neck and Robin Hood’s barn, closed it up and figures we’ll have to do more scans to find the little stinker. She’s seen ‘em up under someone’s ear or down by their aortas — lots of unnerving possibilities.

So back to the old drawing board. If they have to do a second surgery, it won’t be till Colorado’s covid numbers get a whole lot lower than the current surge.

Not in any pain; still tire out faster than I should; still somewhat molasses-brained. Didn’t cook at all for Thanksgiving, got a spiral ham and frozen sides, but there’s a 15-lb bird in the freezer and a traditional feast planned for January when my little sister comes out to visit. My husband has been running the house, bless him forever and just don’t look at how the sweet old coot loads a dishwasher :)

It’s time to poke a toe back in the social and political waters. Hope all you Lizards are reasonably well, hope no one’s had really terrible news. Good to see you all again!

Hyper-Woke Everly Brothers trying to ram critical race theory down little Susie’s throat.

There were calls to ban that song as it provided teenagers with a convenient excuse for immoral behavior.

For some reason this reminded me of the time we convinced the wholesome church youth leader to play “Cecilia” on his guitar during a sing along. He apparently never actually had listened to to lyrics because his face got red and he stopped playing when we got to the “Making love in the afternoon with Cecilia / Up in my bedroom (making love) / I got up to wash my face / When I come back to bed / Someone’s taken my place”. We, of course, kept going and sang even louder.

Jeanine: Instead of calling it the South Africa virus, they took weeks to figure out a new name so nobody could say it’s the virus/variant from South Africa. Isn’t it interesting they decided to name it this before we even heard about it

It was discovered in Botswana and sequenced in South Africa, dimwit.

Just spent an hour cutting a red-headed woodpecker out of the nylon mesh that protects the garden. It would have gone faster if I had something besides dull garden scissors, and if the little bastard had quit pecking me. (His needle-like claws actually did more damage than his beak.) In the end he flew off to a neighbor’s tree to tell his mates how he fought off the big two-legged prick.

Home improvement woes: Completely destroyed the bathroom faucet in my master bathroom trying to replace the aerator. (The 26-year-old faucet had badly seized threads, and the innards tore out when I tried to loosen it.) I ordered a replacement, it arrived today. Tore out the old unit, which went surprisingly better than I expected, went to install the new one… doesn’t fit. Ugh. I found a properly fitting (read: MEASURED) replacement that could be delivered same day and was acceptable to the Mrs. Fish, boxed up the “old” new one to be returned, and now we wait.

At a street fair in NM, a guy had set up a booth with an unrideable bike. I was sure I could do it, but I couldn’t. All a person had to do was ride from line A to line B without putting a foot down. His bike had reverse steering. Pushing the right side of the handlebar turned the front wheel right, pulling it turned left.

This video showed me why I couldn’t do it.

I just bet Hawaii is going to lock down again and my husband and kids need to get over there to see his parents! My daughter and her fiancé Are going in Jan., already changed plans once. They have to meet him!

I have plans to go to Hawaii in January — a trip I’ve rescheduled I can’t remember how many times (originally April, 2020). Still hoping I’ll be able to do it this time.

I wouldn’t worry about the defibrillator interacting with the system for back pain.

The defibrillator will be reading from the heart leads and will only respond to signals with a certain profile. In addition both units will be well shielded and should be designed to reject other signals. Also, the signals from the back unit will be different from what the defibrillator is looking for.

Bottom line is I wouldn’t be concerned, but you’ve asked an excellent question.

After spending 10-12 hours a day on a computer for my job, now that I’ve retired I’ve been using my phone to read/ comment here.

I hate trying to write comments using my phone, especially since I’m a very fast typist.

On the positive side, it helps keep me cranky so there is a silver lining.
