    I thought baseball was harmful to play. Such repetitive motion in throwing the ball, especially pitching. I think golf is loaded with trouble too because you're always doing the same difficult motions.

    Never played either much, and rarely had shoulder difficulty of any kind. Played tennis for decades and not one problem through playing that sport. Cross country skiing, hiking, swimming, snow shoeing, cycling, so much better for the body, rarely get injuries, would recommend those.

    Baseball sucks in so many ways. jmo

    Not that I picked sports much better. Both of my knees are screwed for life. One hockey, one work related. Probably hockey did a number on both of my knees. Been dealing with arthritis in my knees since I was 18-20. So around 40yrs. Oddly though because of the specific back and knee regimens I do (everything in the body is strangely related through nerve connections) my knee pain is less now and ability greatest its been in decades. I do rehab every day of my life.

    I'm not a doctor, but my wife (nurse) and my physio person tell me the clicking noise is not something to be concerned about. But if you are having chronic pain for that long, I would see a doctor. I had shoulder surgery a long time ago, and it sounds like your symptoms are similar to my issue, which was a labrum problem. All you may need is a steroid shot to settle down the inflammation. But if you do get that shot, be careful afterwards. Don't exercise with it for a few weeks, as the tendon tends to be soft and can much more easily tear.

    Do you get the long range CB skip these days, Yukoner88? I recall listening to the bands being being covered by a lot of squeal and nonsense, all from well into the States from Alberta. Today, the low sunspot count has the bands dead.

    If I had that space I'd just put up a net and shoot pucks, but too each his own.

    Not to make light of the recent news, but I always get a kick out of an article like the below. Damn near two months later and they are finally reaching out to the public for tips. I understand there are leads at times and it can comprise investigations, but this seems to happen far more often than it should. Need to make things public a lot sooner.

    Horse fatally shot in central Alberta, RCMP investigating

    Just have the standard truck CB radio. Every now n then there's an interesting conversation or a guy will get a useful tip about an accident delay to get around or avoid. But mainly it's guys complaining about everyone n everything between the sun n the moon, and along with some colourful name calling.

    I just had a Sony ICF-7600G multi-band radio (from 150kHz to 29999 kHz in the AM bands and 76 MHz to 108 MHz in the Japanese and N.A. FM bands. Used to be able to pick up the wailing of some Arabic M.E. stations. Once heard the Deutsche Welle sign-off transmitter id as coming from Trincomalee, Sri Lanka.

    Now, nothing as for long range SW listening. A lot of national stations shut down their transmitters for online streaming but, still, plenty of areas still need transmitters to listen.

    Getting into HAM radio operating could be fun too and is something I've been curious about playing with when my driving days come to an end, while I hear operators still exist, I fear it too is a dying hobby

    Never was able to do Ham radio. My hand has always shaky plus learning how to key in and understand Morse Code, know electronics and the physics of how antennas work. I'll just listen for any interesting stuff, if the sunspot count goes up.

    I would have a comment on the FIFA pre-game stuff in every game but it would be political.

    Just add a whole bunch of CBers keying over each other and that's what I heard on afternoons.

    Finally got to watch Stargirl online. I enjoyed watching it as the producers and writers letting the characters come through and stay to the story line. 9 out of 10 and that's being conservative.

    Anyone watch a lot of youtube? Anyone else being absolutely bombarded with an advertisement for naked cannabis? The the past two weeks it has been every second advertisement while watching, at minimum. Sometimes I’ll get it three times in the same video, back to back.

    Now every time I hear that god forsaken whistling song I want to pull my hair out.

    Use an ad blocker. I use adblock and haven't seen an ad on Youtube in a long time. (For me, some sites are simply unusable without an ad blocker. *cough *cough.)

    Nice, but I can do better than that. Try golfing when you're drunk.:D
