    I’ve been terribly sick since Christmas Eve. I’ve finally decided to go to urgent care.

    Re: Post Race!

    I'm now pretty good, too. I was up cross country skiing, yesterday evening. It was awesome, so I'll be headed up for another night today. The whole question was whether or not I'd be able to walk this morning. The first day of cross country skiing can leave me a bit sore. I'm not feeling too bad, so I'm up for more.

    You have the flu? I had that terrible strain of it last year at this exact time. Had to go to the ER on New Years Eve.

    It was horrible! Last years flu strain was the worst ever! It was deadly too. Everybody and their mother was at the ER. Waiting room full, hallway people sitting on the floor waiting all down the hallway. They had to open up other departments waiting rooms for teh overflow. Took 6 hours to be seen!

    I was nearly admitted because my heart rate and pressure was sky high and slow to react to the shot they gave for that. I got the flu shot this year first time ever to avoid dying from teh flu lol but I got sick after the shot still

    Re: Post Race!

    I got the flu shot this year, too, and for the first time ever. I'm not sure that I've had the flu since I was young, and I'm not completely certain about that time, either.

    In any case, I just had laryngitis, this time. Couldn't speak, but otherwise I was fine. Not a bad sickness, really.

    I also did the flu shot first time ever this year. They were giving them at work - no charge.

    Yeah, both my wife and I had the flu. I guess it was inevitable considering that both my kids had it. We were completely miserable and only now functioning somewhat.

    He offered me $60k a year, which is lower than what I had hoped for. I don't know really what I am going to do.

    Where in Ca.??? $60K doesn't go far in some parts of Ca. Not if your paying $2,500 rent, that $30K a year. I love Ca. but I live in the Central Valley which has reasonable home prices.

    That's what I was thinking. That would be good money in Idaho, but kind of meager in parts of CA.

    Re: Post Race!

    It’s basically in between San Diego and Los Angeles. $2,500 is basically the average rent in that area. Plus while gas was $1.79 here it was $3.35 there. I really don’t want to move to the other side of the country, away from my family, and struggle to make ends meat.

    Well, don't base anything on YOUR gas prices. I think you are in about the cheapest area in the country for gas. Comparing rent though....that's a different matter.

    Re: Post Race!

    60K is a bit low. Gas is at a low right now so that $3.35 you see for 87 octane will go up in the spring by $0.50 or more easily. CA is taxed up the arse so figure you may have about $10k left to pay for utilities, car insurance, food and any bills you may have per year. $75K is probably a good rate for the area but the company may not be able to afford that. Hence the low offer. Go on to indeed.com and dice.com and search for jobs in that area. See what they are offering. That will help you gauge the offer best

    Changed my avatar to reflect what my avatar looks like on Roblox the graphic was made by a friend. I don't play roblox anymore but still talk to friends and run a roleplay group. It was fun once, it isn't much anymore I tried to pick up lua. That didn't work out too great.

    Gonna go skiing this evening. I doubt it will be very good. It's been a bit too warm and sunny for the last few days, so it was mediocre and icy, last night. Still, the moon grows each night, and the snow may be good enough.

    I live in Modesto and my daughter told me a few days ago that No new houses in Modesto are allowed to have a regular fireplace, only things like pellet stoves. Haven't fact checked her, could be fake news.

    Doggone it, just knocked a cap off a tooth. I'm pretty sure that this is a result of a pretty thorough face-plant I did last Friday when I hit a pretty good berm in the dark while skiing. That probably cracked it, and now it has fallen off, which means I get to visit the dentist pretty soon.

    This is true. New homes are no longer allowed to be built with wood burning fireplaces anymore. The green libertards say its polluting the air, pfft! their electric prius' do more pollution than all the fireplaces lol.

    I don't know what it's like down there, but up here, our air gets 'chunky style' most winters due to the valley inversion. At that point, we get a burn ban on all wood burning. Of course, it can get so bad that they tell people not to exercise (HA! as if we exercised), and it can feel like having a sore throat for days on end. This is not exactly a liberal state. It's just plain pragmatic.

    Fireplaces are mostly for show, anyways. Unless you have some kind of insert that gets the heat back into the room, they aren't all that efficient for heating. I have a wood stove, and when it gets really cold...I don't use it, because of the inversion. That's the only time it gets really cold here. At one point, the governor was advocating telecommuting. I'm a big fan of that. Commuting from upstairs to downstairs is just about the right distance, for me.

    During the winter here we have the cleanest air of the year. Gas is switched over to winter gas too. During the summer it gets really smoggy where you cant exercise without getting smog inhalation similar to smoke inhalation.

    It didn't happen. In fact, they did such a fine job it isn't even apparent that there's a significant part of the tooth that isn't natural, which is nice, since it's a front tooth.

    As to the smog....we should trade. We'll swap our winter air with yours. That way we'll both be able to acclimate to a constant level of smog.

    We have a ski area up above Boise. Some years, when the inversion is particularly bad, you can leave 0 degree, overcast, weather in the valley, and drive up out of the clouds into warm, sunny, weather. It's kind of unfortunate for the ski area, as it can be single digits in the valley, yet the ski area is getting temperatures up into the 40s, so they're losing snow. On the other hand, I've seen people lining up along the road to take pictures of the sea of clouds. I've seen it so distinct that you could walk down into the cloud while your upper body was above the cloud. It can be kind of thick, for a cloud.

    So far, this year has been pretty nice. From the ski area, it is possible to see that there is at least some inversion, as you can see a band of haze over the valley below, but it has mixed out every couple of days, and the temperatures have never been held down very much.
