Busy busy busy

Peiper and I both have lots of things we have to get done right now, so posting will be light for a while longer.

I’m back to the dentist again this morning, and I’m hoping this time that things go right. Not that they went wrong the last time, but I’ve been living with low level pain for nearly a full month now, and I’m sick of it.

Interesting stuff in my inbox this morning ... improve your health via Indian food. A nice spicy curry, loaded down with turmeric and hot peppers, might actually be very good for both joint health and pain management. Turmeric is one of the best sources of a thing called circumin, which studies hasve shown to be quite effective against swelling. And it’s an anti-oxidant. Hot peppers contain capsaicin/capsicum. which also has several benefits, one of which is tricking the body into a lesser state of pain sensitivity. To me that’s interesting enough to explore further. And you get the fun of having a nice rich vindaloo. Cool.

Arrgh, the keyboard/internet is acting up. Some kind of delay is making the stuff I type not show up until about 10 seconds after I type it. Will scan for malware, then reboot. Be back later.

UPDATE: Ok, I survived. Crivens. 3 hours at the dentist. When I had the extraction done, they gave me a little post-surgical card that said “little chips” of tooth may surface in the excision area, don’t worry, they’ll pass. I’ve had a needle of broken tooth root stabbing the underside of my tongue for the past couple weeks, driving me crazy. So I got the dentist to take that out today. Dentistry is so primal ... he’s in my mouth with a pair of pliers and a spatula thingy ... and out comes a shard bigger than a grain of rice. Yikes! “Good thing you came back”, says Doc, “there’s no way that one would have ever worked it’s way out.” And the assistant lady is all “Gosh, this really is needle sharp on the end, isn’t it?” :glower:  hmmm

So, mostly better. Trying to have some enhanced soup here - organic potato leek soup right from the box, but enhanced with matzoh!  Matzoh makes everything better! And I’ve got massive amounts of the stuff - which is a tad challenging right now, since half my face is still under the anesthetic. Maybe I’ll have to hold off until the tingling stops.

Gak, I need a nap. Dental “adventures” are exhausting.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
