Hi all, today I cleaned up the RaidTrac tub as it has been sitting a while, this morning I brought up most of the under carriage parts and the tracks and I am now getting familiar with everything again. When I took it apart I took lots of pictures for documentation to put it back together. That was on my old cell phone I lost at Tylers graduation. I remember most of it and I guess I can wing the rest. I am not sure where to put the build in the snow cat or ATV section its both. I will start in the atv section I can always move it. Marty

No appointments today. Yay. Think I'll go for a snowmobile ride.

Finally started dragging the totes of Christmas decorations back to the garage to store till next Christmas. The tree went into a special carry bag that I ordered to hold it and also out to the garage. Not an easy task with a 9ft tree lugging it out to the truck, down to the shop garage and up a flight of stairs into the loft.

Made it to the next town and back home with the snowmobile. I did get stuck once but only 50 feet from where I pile snow with the plow truck. So I just hooked a chain and rope from the plow truck to the sled and hauled it out up over the bank.

Spent the after noon watching, and getting tools for the daughters and boyfriend to put Mom's new exercise machine together. They need the experience lol...

Regards, Kirk
OK I said I would review the chair here goes 1-10 rating system
1- Wife got it at Costco on sale $1200.00 normal price $2000.00
2- Would I have bought it on my own- no
3- Back-8
4- Neck and shoulders-6 works better if you adjust yourself in the chair.
5- Lower back and butt-7
6- feet-8
7- For your hands and legs it has air bags that squeeze your hands, forearms and calfs
8- has random auto programs or you can set ups custom one.
9- lifts you up and lays back
10- has heat
11- it does OK for what it is but your not going to get a complete body massage. I feel they could have done better on the shoulders, neck and legs also instructions state for up to 5'-9" height, I am 5'-9" and feel they should have said 5'-6" because I have to scoot down to get the neck rub. If your 6' don't even think about it. Marty

Good review.

Mine has the massage but it only has two zones. Back and butt. Plus the heat. The massage is more of a vibration than anything. I also have a split king power adjustable bed with the massage feature but again, it's just a vibration.

Bit of plowing this afternoon. Looking at upgrading the track on my snowmobile to make it better in the powder.

At the hospital now about to get MANY injections into the varicose veins in my legs. I had test injections last week and now the full treatment.

Well, yesterday was a flop not of my own doing. This should be in the rants forum but whatever.

First, I had trial injections into my right leg last week. The secretary booked me for 8am yesterday for the full treatment. So my wife took time off work and drove me in at 7:15 am yesterday. We get there and discover that there was a temporary secretary and she screwed up. It's 8pm not 8am. So my wife drove me the 25 minutes back home then went to work.

I drove myself there last night where I see the doctor. I was fully prepared to get the injections done. He told me that the secretary again screwed up and that he only does the foam injections on certain days. He did 3 spots though as a test last night but rebooked me for the 29th for the full treatment.

I'm off today.
Last night after work, one of the young aides was still hanging around in the parking lot. This was way after her clock out time.
She approached me and asked if I could go buy her vaping pods for her juul.
Ummm, no.
The smoking age has been raised to 21, she's 17.
Tried to explain to her that I won't do that, just like I wouldn't buy a kid alcohol.
She wasn't very happy with me. Lol
Too bad.

Dasha asked me about JUUL once. I warned her away because of the nicotine. She just thought they were cool. But as she won’t even sip wine she really backed away from the JUUL because of the nicotine. Damn addictive stuff it is. I don’t think there is any way to get JUUL refills without nicotine, or with all the crazy stuff that they put in some of the vape pipes (unless there are counterfeit JUUL products that contain that lung causing crap)

Sorry to hear of your troubles. Should we presume your modeling career is on hold until you get those veins repaired?

Were it not for the addictive nature of nicotine, which assures the provider of a steady client base in need of the product, there would be no vaping system products sold.

I believe most of vaping products are actually used as marijuana delivery devices, not nicotine delivery devices

Are you missing the point about nicotine? Or assuming I was unaware of the menace of cannabis which is supposedly non addictive.
Big tobacco got into legal trouble by denying that their product was addictive and harmful. The reason people by their product is because they are addicted. All the while knowing full well it shortens their lives with a cruel and painful end.

Frankly it is the very same why many of us drink way too much coffee.

Vapers and smokers do so, at first, because advertising tells them it is cool. Ask them to quit, show them why, and they can't. Not because they are addicted to being cool. But to nicotine.

Lmao. Between the veins on my legs and the huge scars on my abdomen, I fear that my modeling days are done.

Today was more of a relaxing day. I did go to the city this morning to go to the gym but it was a slower workout for me as my legs aren't working so well today.

I picked up a new/used ripsaw 136 x 15 x 1.25" track for the snowmobile. I may tackle the installation tomorrow as I have nothing else planned.

Today its raining, blowing and cold, the good news is today is suppose to be the last of it for a couple of weeks, that said I am making another plan to go to the work cabin. I am doing paperwork today instead of Tuesday next week so we can go Saturday and come back Tuesday. The weather report for the mountain says the same, snow ending tonight then clear for 2 weeks if it holds we will be playing in the snow soon. Marty

Spent the day in the garage working on the snowmobile. Old track is off. New one is installed. Still have to put the suspension back in along with reassembling the chaincase. Looking forward to seeing how it goes in the deeper snow.

Speaking of snow, we're under a severe weather watch for tomorrow night. 15-25 cms with 50km winds.

Like a dumbass, I picked up another shift today.
When I'm offered double time I won't say no.
This was offered with the understanding that Sunday is only going to be a half shift.
It's ok. I intend to pay cash for the new car.
