Actually, skim milk makes the best foam (even though I prefer whole milk if I'm having any)

I'm matching 20 folks who can give $1 to a charity that matches service dogs with autistic kids. OPEN YOUR WALLETS!!

Let's do this together. Give $1 and I will match it for 'A Paw-Fect Connection'. https://onetoday.google.com/m/dloew_1s
Did you know? According to the CDC, 1 in 68 kids are diagnosed with Autism in the U.S. They struggle with social interactions, communication & debilitating anxiety.

Amen to that! #starwars #constitution

Then let me just conclude by saying I do agree with law enforcement that we live in a dangerous world. And that's why our founders put in the Constitution of the United States—that's why they put in the Fourth Amendment. Because they understand that an Orwellian overreaching federal government is one of the most dangerous things that this world can have.

Today, 3 years ago, +Deborah Maufer and I brought +Chester Tibbie home for the first time. He was just about 5 days more than 1 year old then. He went from being kind of scared and timid to mostly running the place.

TTIP makes the government stronger even than it is now. Way more than it needs to be - unless your idea of government is not what you learned in the Gettysburg Address (hint: replace 'people' with 'corporations' in the following famous quote: "...we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.")

So I wanted to give an early update on what's been going on with my recovery. Tomorrow is day-14 if you count "release from hospital" as day-1 (that was 18-April).

When you are healing from surgery, none of your normal life expectations apply. You are on drugs that are only temporary so you may not have time to understand their effects before you are off of them. In my case, I thought that the pain medicine was making me drowsy. While this was a legitimate theory, it was a bit too obvious.

The very sexy cervical collar (that I augmented with a kitchen towel) was actually not adjusted correctly and that was what was interfering with my sleep and thus making me tired. It took a few days to eliminate other variables. Now that it's adjusted properly, I'm sleeping well and by now I am completely off the hard-core pain medicine which was very effective and ultimately had no side effects (in my case).

Big news from day-13 (today): FIrst proper shower in 2 weeks! It's good to feel like a human being again.

Huge news from day-12 (yesterday):: Walked +Chester Tibbie last night without my cane. I still can't swivel my head around, but I don't need the cane much any more.

So far so good with the recovery, and now begins the very frustrating part - waiting for the bones to heal.

+Thomas Maufer​ Of course. But it's just not the same. That first real shower is heaven. Every time :)

Update on my healing; Day 10 (where Day 1 is the 18th, the day I got out of the hospital; Day 36 will be the Sunday before I return to work).

Well, the biggest challenge from the last 2 days or so seems to be behind me. I was sleeping a LOT and since drowsiness is one of the primary side effects of the pain medicine, I decided to ask my doctor if I could switch to over-the-counter pain medicine. Turns out that I might have been overdoing the high-end pain medicine in order to stay ahead of the pain. I haven't had any of "the good stuff" today and so far have only had one regular dose of normal pain medicine. So far, so good. My doctor hasn't expected me to get weaned from the pain medicine until this coming weekend or so. If I need it, I'll take it.

+Chester Tibbie​ has not enjoyed my new routine at home - I know that both he and +Deborah Maufer​ will be happy when I can take Chester for walks without needing assistance.

Healing is definitely happening. I am just trying to make sure that I don't re-injure my neck.

Watching #SFGiants on Comcast. Due to conflict with #GSWarriors (nice sweep!), Giants game is on in Standard Definition video. But stretched to the whole screen. Yes...it does it look like crap.

Introduction
Welcome to my profile. Thanks for stopping by! I'm really glad you're here.

I'm a whisky (and whiskey!) padawan who enjoys learning about these products! I am also a craft beer lover, and am lucky to live in an area with lots of great breweries and distilleries....

On Twitter you may know me as @whisky2dot0 (I also have a Facebook account of the same name, and a "Whisky2.0" Facebook page).

Give in to temptation: You only live once!

Great food and ambience - they really know how to prepare beef! Try a perfect Manhattan with Whistle Pig Rye whiskey. Goes great with a steak if you're not in the mood for wine.

My wife's car had a slow leak in a tire. I couldn't find it. When I took it to America's Tire, they fixed it for free in 45 minutes. The service staff was friendly, bi-lingual and did the job properly in the promised time, even though I was there at the end of the day. And the best part: They didn't try to sell me tires I didn't need; you can bet I'll go back, and so should you.

My dog has been a training customer for over a year and he is always complimented for his good behavior. I know this has as much to do with practice as the trainer, but me knowing what to practice is the key. Lately he has also become a doggy daycare customer every Thursday and he's learning to interact in a supervised yet unstructured environment -- no crates -- just dogs being dogs (with corrections as necessary from the staff).
