  1. Mine was L4-5 S1. I couldn’t kneel, bend, twist, stand still, lift, getting up out of a chair was painful. Walking along, my right leg would give out on me & hopefully there was something to grab onto. Had those fused together & did good for about 5 yrs. Had my spinal stimulator put in in 2014, had surgery again in 2015 to clean up the arthritis, in 2017 had surgery to have L3 fused, in June I had the spinal stimulator taken out. The battery pack was causing inflammation really bad in my butt area. I still can’t do what I want to do, but I do the best I can & pay the price the next day. 😔
  2. Someone big enough should take the “34” yr old & toss his A$$ from the car & “try to” throw him onto the shoulder of the road from the opposite lane!! He better hope its a deserted highway. 🚘🏎🚙🚜🚚🚗🚛😡🤬
  3. There is a spinal stimulator you can get the wires inserted in your spine & the battery pac goes in your ass cheek. I had Dr Bejjani put mine in when he was at Shady Side. Now he is up here employed by Penn Highlands with an office at the Medical Arts Building. #106 814-503-4433 P.S. when I had mine put in, you couldn’t have an mri, now you can!! That makes a big difference!! They came out later in that year. if you want to ask any questions, just pm me. 🙂
  4. Fleetwood Mac blues guitarist Peter Green dies at 73 Updated Jul 25, 1:20 PM; Posted Jul 25, 1:20 PM FILE - In this file photo dated Saturday, April 7, 2001, British rock and blues guitarist Peter Green, a founding member of Fleetwood Mac, backstage before performing with his own band, Peter Green's Splinter Group, at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill, in New York. Lawyers representing the family of Peter Green, say in a statement Saturday July 25, 2020, that he has died, aged 73. (AP Photo/Mark Lennihan, FILE)AP By The Associated Press LONDON (AP) — Peter Green, the dexterous blues guitarist who led the first incarnation of Fleetwood Mac in a career shortened by psychedelic drugs and mental illness, has died at 73. A law firm representing his family, Swan Turton, announced the death in a statement Saturday. It said he died “peacefully in his sleep″ this weekend. A further statement will be issued in the coming days. Green, to some listeners, was the best of the British blues guitarists of the 1960s. B.B. King once said Green “has the sweetest tone I ever heard. He was the only one who gave me the cold sweats.” Green also made a mark as a composer with “Albatross,” and as a songwriter with “Oh Well” and “Black Magic Woman.” He crashed out of the band in 1971. Even so, Mick Fleetwood said in an interview with The Associated Press in 2017 that Green deserves the lion’s share of the credit for the band’s success. “Peter was asked why did he call the band Fleetwood Mac. He said, ‘Well, you know I thought maybe I’d move on at some point and I wanted Mick and John (McVie) to have a band.’ End of story, explaining how generous he was,” said Fleetwood, who described Green as a standout in an era of great guitar work. Indeed, Green was so fundamental to the band that in its early days it was called Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac. Peter Allen Greenbaum was born on Oct. 29, 1946, in London. The gift of a cheap guitar put the 10-year-old Green on a musical path. He was barely out of his teens when he got his first big break in 1966, replacing Eric Clapton in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers — initially for just a week in 1965 after Clapton abruptly took off for a Greek holiday. Clapton quit for good soon after and Green was in. In the Bluesbreakers he was reunited with Mick Fleetwood, a former colleague in Peter B’s Looners. Mayall added bass player McVie soon after. The three departed the next year, forming the core of the band initially billed as “Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac featuring (guitarist) Jeremy Spencer.” Fleetwood Mac made its debut at the British Blues and Jazz festival in the summer of 1967, which led to a recording contract, then an eponymous first album in February 1968. The album, which included “Long Grey Mare” and three other songs by Green, stayed on the British charts for 13 months. The band’s early albums were heavy blues-rock affairs marked by Green’s fluid, evocative guitar style and gravelly vocals. Notable singles included “Oh Well” and the Latin-flavored “Black Magic Woman,” later a hit for Carlos Santana. But as the band flourished, Green became increasingly erratic, even paranoid. Drugs played a part in his unraveling. On a tour in California, Green became acquainted with Augustus Owsley Stanley III, notorious supplier of powerful LSD to the The Grateful Dead and Ken Kesey, the anti-hero of Tom Wolfe’s book “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.” “He was taking a lot of acid and mescaline around the same time his illness began manifesting itself more and more,” Fleetwood said in 2015. “We were oblivious as to what schizophrenia was back in those days but we knew something was amiss.” “Green Manalishi,” Green’s last single for the band, reflected his d In an interview with Johnny Black for Mojo magazine, Green said: “I was dreaming I was dead and I couldn’t move, so I fought my way back into my body. I woke up and looked around. It was very dark and I found myself writing a song. It was about money; ‘The Green Manalishi’ is money.” In some of his last appearances with the band, he wore a monk’s robe and a crucifix. Fearing that he had too much money, he tried to persuade other band members to give their earnings to charities. Green left Fleetwood Mac for good in 1971. In his absence, the band’s new line-up, including Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, gained enormous success with a more pop-tinged sound. Green was confined in a mental hospital in 1977 after an incident with his manager. Testimony in court said Green had asked for money and then threatened to shoot out the windows of the manager’s office. Green was released later in the year, and married Jane Samuels, a Canadian, in 1978. They had a daughter, Rosebud, and divorced the following year. Green also has a son, Liam Firlej. Green returned to performing in the 1990s with the Peter Green Splinter Group. In 1998, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with other past and present members of Fleetwood Mac

  6. Judge's ruling reopens Kennedy cousin's murder case to the public Updated 3:24 pm EDT Jul. 25, 2020 HARTFORD, Conn. — A federal judge has ruled that Connecticut officials cannot keep court proceedings and documents secret for teenagers charged with the most serious crimes — a decision that will reopen Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel's murder case to the public. U.S. District Judge Michael Shea in Hartford ruled Friday that a state law approved last year — with the intent of protecting juveniles' identities when their cases are transferred to adult court and only unsealing documents if they are convicted — violates the First Amendment right of access to the courts, The Hartford Courant reported. The decision came in a lawsuit challenging the law filed by the newspaper and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. The judge ordered the state Judicial Branch to open courtrooms and unseal the records in the cases of juveniles ages 15, 16 and 17 whose cases were transferred to adult court but kept secret under the new law, which took effect Oct. 1. Parts of the order were postponed for a month to allow advocates for teenagers an opportunity to argue against unsealing the proceedings. "This ruling marks a critical victory for transparency in our criminal justice system," said Andrew Julien, publisher and editor-in-chief of the Courant. "The state will no longer be able to automatically shield from public scrutiny proceedings in crimes considered serious enough to be handled in the adult criminal system." Under the previous law, serious juvenile cases including murders and rapes were unsealed when they were transferred to adult court, as Skakel's was, allowing public access to court proceedings. The new law resulted in the sealing of Skakel's case, because he was a teenager when Martha Moxley was killed in their wealthy Greenwich neighborhood in 1975. Skakel, a nephew of Robert F. Kennedy's widow, Ethel Kennedy, was convicted in 2002 in the bludgeoning death of Moxley when they were both 15 years old. He served more than 11 years in prison before a judge overturned his conviction in 2013, citing mistakes by his trial lawyer. He was freed on $1.2 million bail. The state Supreme Court reinstated the murder conviction in 2016, but later reversed itself and overturned the conviction. The U.S. Supreme Court last year declined to hear an appeal by state prosecutors, who have not disclosed whether they plan to retry Skakel. A message seeking comment about Shea's ruling was left for Chief State's Attorney Richard Colangelo Jr. on Saturday. It's unclear whether officials plan to appeal the ruling.
  7. They have gotten a lot of rainfall with all the storms that moved through the last couple of weeks.
  8. Those poor boys didn’t have a chance at all. 😢 I hope the other 3 get the death penalty. There was no reason for what they did, no reason at all ....
  9. The cameras are also for parents who can’t be there everyday like most new parents or repeat parents. I completely understand what you are saying. 😊
  10. Raise some funds for that part of the hospital.
  11. Those people are slobs!! They are the same ones who leave their garbage in store carts. Leave their empty food containers, from the deli, hidden behind things, because they didn’t pay for them. Throw their garbage out the window onto the road or someone’s yard. I could keep going ...
  12. Yes you can!! The sides of the face by the ears & eyes kinda crinkle up!! Plus look at a person’s eyes, they light up when he/she smiles!!😃
  13. Can you wear a shield? I’ve seen people wear them when they can’t, for medical reasons, wear a mask.
