Pre-Ranger got a concussion!

Took a hard shot in the game the other night and literally knocked him loopy. He has had headaches ever since and hard to focus in close. Hos doctor is also his LB coach. We made it official today. Looks like he has to go through at least a one week rehab program before playing again.

Tough call for all of us who are concerned/invested individuals.

If anything has come out of the NFL is the long term concussion awareness and the changes they have made in all levels of football to try and mitigate those issues.

In the past especially if the athlete was a star they would just put them back in with a concussion and play on. Now at least as frustrating as it is they have a chance to heal up before going back out. That is if you trust the science and on this particular I do due to autopsies done on many older NFL players that donated their brains for research,

I hope he heals up fast and proceeds to kick @$%.  :laugh:

Don't stop if you have something to say. We all seem to be like minded like JR mentioned but it highlights what is going on. The main thing right now is getting Trump reelected. Then they will continue to go after child trafficking, pedo's, the swamp, school choice and getting rid of the socialist teachings in K-12 like the 1619 BS, de fund colleges that suppress free speech and are "systemically racist", etc. etc... etc...

It will be a landslide like no other and even there ballot stuffing and harvesting will have no effect because Trump voters will vote in person and en mass like never seen before.

The Demoncrats will try to Kavenaugh Amy Cony Barrett and it will further repulse the moderates and independents. They will see again the disgusting ends that the likes of Horizontal Harris and others will go and reject them. Who wants her as our President after Slo Joe is in office for a couple of months and bows out due to health reasons. She is Obama's pick that failed miserably in the primaries. This is the only way Obama's cabal can get her in there.

And take majority of the House of Representatives.

Very nice truck! I'm sure she will enjoy it. They ride really nice.

Oil change in the works? :)

I bought my wife a 2018 Armada about 6 months ago. She had a 2005 with over 200K on the ODO and didn't want anything different. The only issue she has had with it was a brake sensor that went out and it wouldn't start because it requires the brake to be pressed for the push button start. They had to tow it to the dealership and to swap out sensor. Luckily it only had 35000 on it so still under warranty. Glad you got the 100K!

We did find out when we drove from MN to Tampa, FL with a 4,400 pound trailer behind it we averaged 10 mpg. We had to stop every 150 miles or so to fill up with gas. That was annoying.

Her 2005 was a great vehicle. I hope the 2018 will be as well.

Congrats on your 2020!  :likebutton:

Then after that I’m building a 2” wide belt sander & then who knows?

Not sure if you have seen this series on the Utube but it looks very cost effective and high quality. Might have some good ideas. He also sells the plans and source for his parts or sell complete.

This might be an interesting read for most of you. I read it back in April. He has only written the first two of his trilogy.

My question has always been about communications. How to communicate with your group and others like yours without broadcasting to everyone listening? Some use video games with in game chat, some use private networks, but is there any pre approved method that I just don't know about being non military?

Also picked this up today. We were planning on renting a Uhaul and then a PODs storage due to the extreme downsizing but I have been watching this for weeks so pulled the trigger. 

We can now load at our leisure and be able to take all of the things a mover won’t haul.

I can relate with a MN truck. I'm in the process of getting mine ready to sell. Mine still looks really good and solid but it was a challenge keeping up with it during the winter. It definitely helps with weekly undercarriage washing and then having a heated garage so it can dry out. <---- Key

I was thinking about taking it to FL and selling it there but with the situation I don't think I will need it and I don't think I would get as good of a price being a "Minnesota" rust bucket. At least in MN they are used to it and it seems as long as the rockers, corners, and fenders don't have any rust the Duramax's still go for a pretty decent price. Hard to find them with decent miles that haven't been beat to death.

I will see who picks it apart.  :rolleyes:

Howdy and holy cow. It has almost been a couple of months since my last post.

A lot has gone on. I basically ran out of options at Mayo in Rochester a couple of months ago so I have been trying to get into a Phase 1 Trial at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Long story short and several brain tumors later I was checked last week to see if the GAMMA Knife Radiation on my previous brain tumors had done the job so I could be eligible for the trial I was attempting to qualify for. Well I have a new one now that is 2mm in size and because it is detectable it makes me ineligible again. You had to wait for 30 days from the Gamma to see if there was any regrowth or new before being considered.

Any brain tumor issues delete you from any trial considerations right now. So back on Chemo. Started that last Wednesday in Tampa. Flew back to MN Sunday and will have to go back to Moffitt on August 12th for the next round. Insurance turned down on one of the Chemo drugs. (Pembro) so I can't get the Chemo in MN. It has to be through Moffitt which my Doc there thinks she can get Merck to provide free. We will see....  :shocked:

So sold my house in MN in May, been living in rental until we saw how this shakes down. Closed on a tiny house in Tampa last Friday and will probably move there mid August so I can be near whatever treatment they come up with and my wife can be near our kids and her folks for support.

Fight is still on trying to manage the pain without going on Narcotics so I can keep my job and keep health insurance.

Thanks for the Prayers!  :popcorn:

I hesitate to send this reply at all because I in no way want to offend you or anyone on this site. I truly value everyone here and it has brought a lot of joy to me personally over the years.

But here goes. To answer your questions about elders and church. I was born and raised In the church. I attended and participated in every service, program, work day, pot luck, prayer meeting, door to door witnessing, bible college, etc... until I was about 22. I honestly was so disgusted by organized religion that I just stopped going. Haven’t been back since. I went to Evangelical Free, Baptist, Southern Baptist, Methodist, Catholic (ex wife), non denominational, and as such with life and organizations met some very good people. Some not so good people. I got so tired of being made to feel that if I didn’t fit their template of what they wanted I wasn’t godly. But yet they were the ones out drinking and cheating on their spouses, had kids no respect and then showed up on Sunday to hypocritically tell me how much I should live.

Again it was a few bad apples that spoiled the basket but it was enough for me.

My sisters husband was a youth minister back in those days as well. I saw first hand how a god fearing loving family should have been the benefactor of all things good. Wonderful family that foster cared when they had nothing for their own kids. This was during the same time that the televangelist like Jim and Tammy Baker were getting exposed for the frauds and hucksters that they are were raking in the sheeples money. All while my sisters family was scraping by to put food on their table and clothes on their three kids. I didn’t see any religious equity in that.

I could go on for ever with tangible and visible examples of what I have seen as an absence of God from pedo priests for years in the Catholic Church to bacha boys,child brides,and child trafficking among the most horrific in my mind the destruction of youth. Now trannies reading story time at elementary schools. Teaching masturbation to little kids. If there ever was a time for organized religion to rally the troops and attack the filth and deprivation that has gone on for years and years it is now. I don’t see it happening. And maybe Trump is an answer to prayers since no one else has attacked the pedos and trafficking like he has but he seems to be a lone ranger with very little organized support.

So I love people like my brother and sister (and you Don) that have unwavering faith and a belief that God has a plan and is all powerful and it is “his will” but most likely to my final detriment I am sorry I don’t. I feel that if God was all powerful I would pray that he ignore me and save one child from being trafficked or one child bride from being married off to her rapist or one Bacha boy allowed to escape his rapist and many more atrocities in this world.

I sadly I guess in my 62 years have never seen a miracle or answer to prayer. Many times to god loving people that truly should have deserved it.

As far as forgiven anyone I felt might have a grudge or animus against I had to think about that one for a while. I am the type,of person that rarely if ever thinks backward or about the past. I guess I have thought more about it now more than I ever have but more around my kids and wishing I hadn’t worked so much and had spent more time with them. But other than our neighbors that sued us blocking our house sale in NJ costing me $100’s of thousands of dollars I can’t think of anyone that I would need to forgive. And I hadn’t thought of NJ in years. So I’m good there. :)

Probably TMI but I wanted to provide an honest answer and to really thank everyone for your thoughts and prayers and hopefully maybe they will work not just for me but for my wife, my kids, my sister, my brother, and honestly the most unlikely people that have expressed prayers and support from a waitress at a diner I go to a lot to the wife of a salesman at work that laid hands on and prayed that  I didn’t know until that outing. Many, many more that I can’t name.

So hey, how about a win for the Mike team!  Or I guess what happens will be “Gods will”.

Either way I will keep fighting until I don’t wake up some day.
