Why So Quiet, Dave?

I went to my doctor the other day, and ended up in the Heart Center at WakeMed. Everything worked out fine, and I compliment the surgeons for the non-invasive procedures they’ve mastered.  A generation ago they would have cracked me open like a chicken, and stapled me back together.

95% Blocked?  Is that even possible?

Everything is good.  I have a whole box of new medicines, and instructions to make my life less stressful.  Hah!  Weight loss will be easier than that!


My overall plan is to blog less in 2016.  If I have some volunteers to join the “& Company” part of the project, I’d love to hear from you.  Citizen journalists and commentators in the subjects of Shutuppery, education, Kimberlin, government idiocy, pretty pictures and America are welcome.

    I’ve managed to avoid such issues by not having a physical since 1989. Sure, that particular medical strategy doesn’t exactly work out as planned for Warren Zevon, but there’s always a first time.

    On the other hand, nobody’s warned me of my imminent death in quite some time!

    Look on the bright side, Dave. By the end of the weekend, you should get a comment from St. Francis about how your hatred is squeezing your heart into mush, just like it did Mike Malone’s.

    Everything is classier in St. Francis.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    Glad to hear you’re on the path to wellness. A suggestion from the people of New Jersey, who live on pasta and the best Italian bread this side of the Atlantic: cut the pasta and get a Veggie Spiralizer, any brand you like. Makes zucchini and squash taste like spaghetti. Easy way to painlessly cut a couple hundred calories from a meal. Mr Whatsit has lost 35 pounds in 6 months this way.


  8. I have a Spiralizer, works great, and zucchini is an acceptable substitute for pasta under a nice marinara sauce.

    Now, leave out the cheese and meat…
