    Hey Steve, Take it easy and rest up for a few days. The Tri Car saga may have had more twists and turns than a bob sled track - but we can wait for the denoument a little longer.
    I've had similar symptoms with my Atrial Fibrilation for the last 12 months and the tablets and blood thinner meds help a lot.
    Can confirm your saddle is en route.

    Hi Pete,

    Wish I had discovered motorbikes 20 years ago. I was in much better shape then like we all were. Noticing a difference already in less than 24 hours. More energy and less pain. The tri car will inch on towards completion with and luck.

    Thank you for the bike seat.

    Steve.

    No pace maker for you Pete? They are very good.
    I would most likely be a invalid without one.

    This attack was a gentle nudge so far. I often wondered if I had something like this I'd take it as a warning and do something. Had to go to the clinic today to have all the blood work and the EKG redone that I had done yesterday in the hospital.

    This is just a back up after the fact to see if anythings changed over night. I'll be back at the bike tomorrow. Next round of tests are for next Monday and Thursday. That will show up any damage when they inject a dye into me.

    Steve.

    Any health up date Steve?
    My ticker was having a Branch Block, Bradycardia type 2.. I am now paced both sides 100% and as active as I ever was compensating for age which is now 69.
    I like 69 the position but the age not so much :)

    Nothing yet Tom. The tests next week are at the Nuclear Medicine Department of the hospital. Nuclear waste based dye is injected into my system and that will highlight any damage. Had the same thing done for the bone infection I had.

    I remember the joys of 69 the position but 69 the age doesn't have nearly the joy filled happiness.

    Steve.

    Steve If you use three sets of forks, one set with springs, you have a complete suspension rear triangle. It's been done.

    I do like the look of that big, battery sparked single.

    The Canadian government has moved quickly to prevent us from travelling around unnecessarily.

    They are buying everyone Harley Davidson's.

    :D
    I have heard of one person wanting to retreat to their Up North cabin being turned away at the county border by a patrolman. Locals not wanting the "Big City Pandemic" coming to them.
    Steve, is the Tricar done?

    Just finishing up the welding around the house that's be put off all winter. I'll be putting the gas tank and lines back on the tri car tomorrow and Tuesday I'll push it out and try and fire it up. Once it is proving it's good to go I'll have it on the ground and put the Electric tri car in it place on the work bench.

    Steve.

    Everyone was told to stay home here. Out of towners are flooding the roads and the ferries over to Vancouver Island and the other islands. Locals are not making them welcome.

    No police stops as yet but they may be coming.

    In 1918 lots of small towns ringed themselves with armed guards. And it worked! I been reading a book about that pandemic that's just about a horror story. Because of the focus on WW1 the govt didn't mandate any social distancing. Wilson never even publicly mentioned the virus. The reason it's called the Spanish Flu is because Spain, being officially neutral, didn't censor it's press and they were the only ones allowed to talk about it. But the people knew. It actually started in Haskell County Nebraska.

    Got a title of that book FOG?
    Who would have guessed burning horse **** could bring on such a thing. I had Great Aunts and Uncles from the same family who lost spouses to that pandemic.

    Winter is trying to go away Steve, Easter delivered a little set back here in Wisconsin. I am about ready to self quarantine having completed a hot project at work.
    Company I work for is a disease factory with young guys with school age kids. Mona is recovering from Myeloma no good reason for me to jeopardize her wellbeing.

    I turned on a fan today, but I did not have a fever. The oven baking cookies never made much difference. I check and saw 78 and 80 F on the thermostat. It was set at 73 and 74 is what it tops and cycles to 72 before running. I got out my glasses and saw the small low battery symbol flashing. Down 1 volt. 2 volt instead of 3 volt I felt it should have still worked, otherwise just shut off. Not this POS! No backlight for the warning. Only backlight when adjusting settings.

    Well heck it snowed last night and still 32 degrees. Both very rare this late in the year, but makes it easier to stay shut in.

    It's "The Great Influenza" by John Barry, who was just on Fox news with Bret Baier the other day. The thing that slapped me in the head was something I already knew but just didn't connect. They didn't have any refrigeration for the bodies. It's best to read it on an empty stomach.
