Physical Therapy: The Most Expensive BUT Most Useless Part Of My Knee Surgery Saga.

I had my quadriceps tendon repair surgery,
at ‘
Frisbie Memorial Hospital‘ —
performed by Dr. Charles Blitzer
of ‘Seacoast Orthopedics
on Thursday, March 7, 2019.

There was no pain to talk about
— throughout, from surgery to now.

I was supposed to do a TON of physical therapy post week 6 of my knee surgery. I went to the first session. I was totally underwhelmed, somewhat aggrieved and felt that I had been FLEECED. I never went back. I did my own and I am delighted to say as week 13 approaches my knee is pretty much back to normal!

No pain. I now, as I did in the past, BOUND (yes, BOUND) up the four staircases we have in this house. Last Thursday, I ran 3-miles carrying 11 pounds of weights — up a hill. I am also doing 23-minutes of cycling on a stationary bike. I have NO PAIN.

Physical therapy is NOT for I. I do not need some kid, who is probably NOT as fit as I am (even when I was on crutches), telling me how to exercise. I exercise more than most and don’t need motivation, encouragement or threats. I just need time. I would exercise more if I had the time.

That they wanted a $45 copay when I only pay $35 to my surgeon genuinely UPSET I. The surgeon’s magic and care cannot be duplicated. Physical therapy — I could watch on YouTube.

They also did NOT have a long-handled shoe horn in the premises. That impressed me none. That is beyond ignorant.

I see that they charged my insurance $345 for a 40-minute session. That is criminal. I am glad I did NOT go back.

I am good. My knee is good. Physical therapy was NOT good.

So, you know the score. But, I fully appreciate that I AM STRANGE. So, factor that in.

I Have, Not Surprisingly, Ended Up With ‘ActiFace’ Watch Face On My Garmin ‘MARQ Expedition’.

The ‘Crystal’ watch face on my MARQ.

I had been using ‘ActiFace‘ on my Garmin Fenix 5 & Fenix 5 Plus for exactly one-year before I upgraded to the MARQ Expedition.

I had got quite attached to ActiFace once I got it customized exactly the way I wanted it. I had stumbled upon ActiFace accidently. I had been a ‘GearMin‘ fan. But, I discovered that GearMin did not work flawlessly on the Fenix 5. It disabled the DOWN button. That wasn’t good. That is when I found Actiface.

I like digital watch faces. So, the Garmin default analog did not last long.

I tried the new Crystal face. I like it. Just prefer ActiFace more. Gives me much more data, with more color and graphics.

Who Is To Say That Donald Trump’s Mars-Centric Model Of The Inner Solar System Is Wrong?

Click to ENLARGE. Genuine Trump tweet from June 7, 2019. Go check.

Until Nicolaus Copernicus expounded his views humankind, led by the popes, truly believed that everything up in the sky revolved around the Earth. Copernicus said otherwise. But, that was nearly 600-years ago.

Copernicus was nowhere close to famous or powerful as Donald Trump. He also did NOT Tweet.

So, what is to say that Donald Trump is wrong?

It is possible that we did have this all wrong. Our Moon does not orbit the Earth. Instead, it orbits Mars. Possible.

I will give the Donald the benefit of the doubt.

Making Elephants Worship The Buddha Is So Very Juvenile — And So Very Sri Lankan!

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE. Saw it on my Facebook timeline today. It makes me very angry and sad.

Click to access my earlier post.

This upsets me, greatly. Elephants do NOT worship the Buddha, any other gods or anybody for that matter. Elephants do NOT worship.

Do NOT foist religion on elephants or any other animal.

Dogs do not go to heaven, and elephants have NO notion of religion.

Yes, Sri Lankan Buddhists think this is so special and noble. They are too shallow to appreciate that it makes them look … Well, how can I say it politely.

Elephants deserve better.

To be FAIR, Sri Lankan elephants are, by and large, well treated. They are taught to kneel. So, they will kneel.

This is so juvenile. I wish they would grow up.
