    So far, so good.  (He was my daughter's doc before he was mine, so I knew him before I started seeing him for me).  He had a number of things to suggest re: the shoulder, including the idea that if nothing else works after trying it all, there is a non-FDA approved, not-payable-by-insurance, somewhat expensive, experimental  treatment involving injecting stem cell products (very careful to point out the stem cells are from umbilical cords of babies born by C-section, not aborted fetal tissue) into the problem joint.  So, he's definitely up-to-date on medical options...

    I was offered the stem cell injections for my knee. 50/50 chance of helping. $3,500. per injection. Payment plan. I said no thanks. Cortisone worked for me. tom.

    Meteor exploded over Pittsburgh loud enough to be recorded as an earthquake. 

    Welcome to 2022. 

    Confirmed. tom.


    PITTSBURGH, PA — The loud boom heard on New Year's Day in the Pittsburgh area indeed was a meteor entering the atmosphere, according to the NASA Meteor Watch Facebook page.

    "A nearby infrasound station registered the blast wave from the meteor as it broke apart; the data enabled an estimate of the energy at 30 tons of TNT," a post on the page stated.

    "If we make a reasonable assumption as to the meteor's speed (45,000 miles per hour), we can ballpark the object's size at about a yard in diameter, with a mass close to half a ton. Had it not been cloudy, the fireball would have been easily visible in the daylight sky - crude estimate indicates about 100 times the brightness of the full moon."


    Many people notified authorities, who could offer no explanation, about the large bang.

    We all heard the big bang but still don't know what it was. They were still investigating last we heard. tom. :dunno:

    Thanks, amigo.

    Didn't Sears sell Cushman scooters and motor bikes under the Allstate name?

    I recall that they also sold motorcycles, small ones, I think.

    Who made those?

    Yes, i am old.



    Sears didn't sell Cushmans that I remember. Some of the Allstates were Simplex or some other brands. We owned several of them. tom.



    ETA see railfancwb's post above.
