Why I didn't just re-register with the old name I'll never know. I'm glad the board's back up - I checked in regularly while it was down, texted people and Facebooked Greg (thanks, BTW), and I'll keep up with you miscreants a little more regularly.

On a down note, I'm now at the too-young age to be visiting cardiologists, but a week or so ago I developed a flutter unrelated to the stirrings of any loins. A couple nights ago it felt like a couple ferrets chasing each other around my ticker, so I'm going in for all the fun things in a couple weeks. An EKG showed irregularities and a skipped beat or two (suppose I am a Ford). I guess if it were worse, they would have scheduled me sooner.

In the meantime, I'm going to cut back on caffeine intake (Dr.'s orders) and increase wine intake (my idea - to slow things down).

Your name can be changed...would you like me to do that?

Will do tonight. Just remember to use that name to log in. Fliesguy will no longer work.

If it is atrial fibrillation, some of us can tell you all about it. Get it treated, but don't panic. N
Meds kept mine under control for about 25 years, then dual ablations fixed it.

Tail....

I drink a whole lot of coffee everyday...straight black, no sugar, cream or other additives. I successfully maintain and control the chemical balance of all that caffeine with single-malt, Islay, scotch whisky. So far so good.

Bux's regimen works for me, too.

Thanks Greg! If I still had time to fish, I'm sure I'd live up to my namesake.

As for the home cures... Can't afford single malt on a teacher's salary (or decent wine, for that matter) but last night it was tequila, lime juice and triple sec. My heart was likely still skipping, but I couldn't feel it over the room spinning.
