    Hey Mountaineer

    Thanks, everyone!

    Weather permitting I normally wear Hawaiian shirts when not at work. Other than that loose-fitting polo shirts or loose-fitting t-shirts. At work I either wear button-up short-sleeve shirts or polo shirts.

    Bye Bye Gallbladder.... INPUT PLEASE

    I had mine out several years ago. I wasn't experiencing any issues but I was having my spleen checked to see if it was being affected by my p. vera and tech found it on the ultrasound. So I got a referral to a surgeon. He asked me questions about symptoms. I was negative. He then did this odd twisting poke in my gut and I nearly doubled over with pain. He said that was a pretty good indicator that it should be removed. I haven't experienced any issues after having it removed.

    Pants poll!!!

    I've been wearing Lees for the last few years. I dropped Levis because they quit making the style that fit me. Now Levis are out completely because they are anti-2A.

    Keto Lifestyle/ sort of diet.......

    I had been talking to FW about the diet for a while. I then got a CGM and seeing how the foods I was eating affected my blood glucose levels convinced me to give keto a try after just one day. Since then my blood glucose has been fairly level. Sure I miss some of the foods but I've dropped two of my meds and next month when I go to the endo for my quarterly appointment I'm hoping to drop the other two.

    I'm doing the keto diet and it's made a remarkable improvement in my health.

    Getting a warning is unlikely...

    I actually said something similar to a Richardson cop. He asked me how fast I was going and I responded, "no, but I bet you're going to tell me." He did. I knew there was no way I was going to get out of a ticket as it was Richardson so I figured I might have some fun with it.

    Goulash tonight

    My mother-in-law was Hungarian (immigrated to the US after escaping from Communist rule). She made really great goulash (and other Hungarian food). My wife has lots of Hungarian paprika in the pantry.

    Labor Day plans

    I'm going to spend the day working on some vintage computers. There's a meeting in the middle of September in Springfield, OH and I'm going to prepare for my presentation and display.

    Babylon Bee

    Possible Gmail Hack

    I had this happen with my AT&T account. About once a day I'd get a text about a new temporary PIN. I called AT&T and got forwarded to their security team. We spent about an hour going through everything trying to figure out what was causing the issue. There was no unauthorized activity and no unknown logins or access to my account. This went on for about two weeks and then I was poking around on my phone and happened to look at the AT&T Call Protect app I installed a few months before. That app was the one that was triggering the requests. It was trying to authenticate after I had changed some setting on my account.
