I'm a yogurt man myself. There's a lot of weird flavors out there nowadays though. I just stick with the strawberry/peach/banana/blueberry/cherry/key lime/vanilla ect. . :twothumbs

Ven! so good to hear from you. Hope you and yours are well. Sympathies for the Queen and all of Great Britain who care about Her Majesty. Wondering what the man on the ground is thinking about, regarding the whole brexit thing. Umm, feel free to not respond..

Hope you heal up ok. I crashed while cycling a few years ago. Took a right turn on pavement and I believe I was hitting the front brake while over some debris / gravel and / or taking the turn too tight, or both, so I fell on my right side. I was clicked in to my pedals, but regardless, I fell on my right shoulder. Luckily there were no cars following me. There was a line of cars waiting to turn left so I had an audience lol. I got up, rode home (about 2 miles away). Bike was / is fine, jersey scraped up but still usable - shoulder was in pain - my wife had to lift off my jersey. Went to the emergency where they did x-rays and found a fracture. Prescribed pain meds and eventually physical therapy - which I went to maybe 3 or 4 times. I stopped and ended up doing them at home.

Taper off the pain medication gradually. Take a little bit less each time. This will greatly reduce the likelihood of trouble when your course of medication is finished.

Prescription pain meds make me itch, so I don't take them. I just take asprin- 5 to 20 a day depending on what I need to do that day and just keep food in my stomach. I don't recommend that to anyone else, but it is my stomach.
