A true story. Not for the faint-hearted!I’m sitting here alone in my consultingsuite. My back is aching as well as my hands, after a grueling ten hoursurgical list. On my screen is the MRI scan of a patient whose brain tumor wassuccessfully...

We can aspire to inspire. Wow! I have been postponing reading this wonderful buzz by clicking to it but due to some work I couldn't finish it. Today I made it a point to finish it somehow or the other. You have proved that doctors are like angels for those who needs to undergo treatment on urgent basis. I was totally immersed in each and every word as the entire setting and situation sprang back to life the way it happened. The last paragraph of this buzz was motivational enough. You described very well the kinds of people who needs better care. I am glad that I fulfilled the promise made to myself and thanks for sharing this fantastic buzz with us, Ian Weinberg

agreed that it was a little overkill Harvey Lloyd but it was what I could borrow at the time, and it sure made short work of the initial sculpture. That was a few years ago and I can relate to the fact that it would probably be a little more difficult for me to wield it today, LMAO! There is some industrial equipment that we do use, large band saws in the butcher shop, "Buffalo Choppers", large Hobart machines with attachments, and since you mentioned it blow torches as well, mostly for caramelizing but I also use them for relighting pilots on deep fryers, they heat up the thermocouples faster so I don't have to sit there for a minute, sometimes longer, with my finger depressing the pilot lighting switch until the thermocouple gets up to temp. Great to hear from you Buddy

I wield a 382 Husqvarna and it is slowly showing me my man card is wearing thin. A 400 series, WOW. On ice? Sounds like lighting your pipe with a blow torch. But i would imagine that the sizzle of the saw met its mark of disruptive. Thats awesome. Sorry for the drop though. Sounds like a great adventure and you had me hanging on the story. Good stuff. Ps. didn't realize cooking had such industrial equipment. Maybe the next post should be Chainsaws and Beef:)

Like you said Joel Anderson...That journey of a thousand miles begins with one step...I'm glad our paths keep crossing;-) So many of the writers I have connected with here, (far too many to name) have had an enormous impact on me in terms of facing the complexities of the challenges I have recently been affected by...Sharing our stories with each other has incredible healing power... igniting our compassion for ourselves and each other....accelerating our learning...living our lives doing the right things because they are the right things to do despite adversity...That takes a great deal of courage that is strengthened by numbers...I'm reminded of a metaphor a friend shared with me recently...One stick cannot stand alone, but lean three sticks together and you have a teepee;-)

I've heard of 'kisses by an angel' but smacked by a fish...?? This is such an enthralling tale, I can feel the youth back in my tired but refreshed muscles, the sun drying the spray on my skin to crackling salt, I'm an effortless and flying! Such an awesome day - thanks for taking me along Randall Burns :)
