To sum it up: not bone cancer. Detailed information: The bony growth is the type normally found in larger breeds of dogs. The weight on such a thin-ish joint causes rubbing/grinding and can (an does) cause a bone spur or bony growth, causing pain and limping. Loki is very large... Continue reading

Vet was very pleased with how well the surgical wound is healing, and very happy to hear "What limp?" as the reply to her question about the limp that brought Loki to the vet. That in all probability means that the lump is a callus from an impact from a... Continue reading

Still works on Loki. He had his antibiotics in the yogurt, and 10 mins later, I put his single daily dose of pain meds in a gravy-ish cat food. He wants to go outside, but not until the stitches are out. Poor moggie. Watching him trying to scratch his ear... Continue reading

Vet/Radiologist report: Radiographs of the forelimbs: wrist, elbows and shoulders The front wrist on the right side showed a bony change (different to the left) coming off the distal radius. The change is smooth and doesn't appear to be an aggressive lesion like an osteosarcoma or fungal infection. A sample... Continue reading

Dr S said that the lump is a piece of bone, but not from Loki's wrist. No idea where it has come from. It isn't spongy, nor does it have the 'moth eaten' look of bone cancer. It's just a piece of bone. That being said, the vet wants to... Continue reading

Brought Loki to the vet around 9am, for a hard lump on his right 'wrist', and limping. On advise of the vet, he is there for x-rays and tests. I know some will say "It's 'only' a cat". But Loki is my cat. I've had him since he was 4... Continue reading

Previous bill, and the graph in the bottom right hand corner shows just how much we cut the electric bill. It has been cut over half. Continue reading

There are sometimes too many choices, and it can get confusing. Many people felt coerced into getting CS6 or Creative Cloud because of new camera raw formats, even though their earlier versions of Photoshop worked just fine, but Adobe didn't update camera raw data base for those versions. One great... Continue reading

I got OnOne Perfect PhotoSuite 9 for Photoshop installed and running. The problem I had after that was getting odd errors. Clicked on "Browse in Bridge" and I would get Javascript error. I couldn't load multiple images into layers to, and attempting to photomerge would result in the same Javascipt... Continue reading

I was forced to upgrade to newer version of Firefox. I haven't had any security issues, nor was it working improperly, but because certain websites have changed their coding, and Firefox doesn't quite function correctly (example: pulldown menus not pulling down) Of course, the latest version GUI/Look is a gagger,...

I have been back to doing laps, walking as briskly as possible without limping, in the back yard. I do bring a camera outside with me, just in case the locals fly in for a visit. When I'm done (typically 3 to 5 chapters of audio book) I will water... Continue reading

If I have asked you over and over if the DVDs you're selling are the real deal, because I have been burned by people selling crappy pirated off the TV or old VHS tapes, then burned to DVDs and calling them 'box sets', even with network logos from different TV... Continue reading

This was the very first episode of 'Welcome to Paradox' I ever saw. Blatant advertising is illegal, and the only way to get your goods and services noticed is celebrity placements (current screen star toting new refreshing drink, or wearing latest fashions) A despondent young woman has something that is...

Still a pet peeve: when after months of trying to figure out a software issue on your own, you email support, outline everything you have tried to do, and the response you get is nothing more than a copy/paste from the %#$$@ online FAQ that you've read from back to... Continue reading

We had the digital power meter installed 10 days before the installation of the solar panels. The meter reading, upon the switch on of the solar inverter, was at 283, meaning the average usage was 28kwH a day (must point out, we had been enjoying warmer than usual temperatures for...

I really like this episode. If you could actually swap genders, to see how the other half lives. Genetic/DNA surgery doesn't just give the semblance of the opposite sex, but you actually become the opposite sex. A woman catches her husband cheating on her. She decides to undergo the the...

Have some stormy weather, with very strong gusty winds heading our way. Wind's already here. Have tucked things into the shed, other things up against the gate and house. Filled watering can to weigh it down. Made sure the lime tree was off the wheeled dolly (can't have that fall... Continue reading

That I have spoken to my eldest son, Paul, in quite some time. It wasn't for the best of reasons, but I don't care. He is going through a rough patch, (not of his making) and family is family. I've missed him, and I told him as much. But then... Continue reading

Because here I am, over 50, with a bout of tonsillitis combined with ear infection. My biggest problem with it right now is the painful swallowing. It's not just the tonsil/throat, it's the stabbing pain in the ear when I do from the pressure of the tonsil on the Eustachian... Continue reading

Yesterday, three QuickFlix DVDs arrived, but it had been raining, and the mailman didn't insert them fully into the mailbox. They got soaked. I had tried to carefully remove the mailing envelopes, but they dissolved into mush. The DVDs were ok, but the mailers were gone. I logged onto QuickFlix... Continue reading

For me, after someone complained about being fiscally careful, of doing just that (like sewing waistbands back on underwear is just so much fun.. and that's just one example of penny pinching) what that other someone has, in the past two weeks, racked up $229 in speeding fines? Anyone... anyone? Continue reading

You have never seen me do exactly that. Ziggy has habit of licking a spot on a foot until it's lost the fur (stress thing like a human biting fingernails). She has learned that I will make her stop whether she wants to or not. Next thing; get her to... Continue reading

But not so glad I need it as often as I do. It seems that most of the times I use it, is to repair piss poorly put stitched together items. Just got through finishing off the end of a zipper on a laundry bag, and stitching the zipper and... Continue reading
