    Hey Paul. If that Ref snare came from
    Sacramento I think I know who used
    to own it. A nice man named Steve.
    Anyway thanks and great score.

    i was in a very similar situation Eric. i was about to get a wheelchair when i finally met a doctor who was specialized in spondylosis . if you were close i'd refer you to that guy,he litterally saved my life ; i avoided the wheelchair ,the surgery got me back on my feet.get the surgery, it's the only way to walk away from the permanent pain and the degenerative effect it has on our body .

    I’m so sorry you’re going through all the lower back issues. I had L4, L5 surgery in February of 2018. They did a discectomy, laminectomy, and foraminotomy. I tried epidurals twice. They were very painful and gave me only a few days of relief. Before the surgery my pain went down my right leg and was off the charts. I was unable to walk. The surgery helped a lot, but I’m still in pain. I can’t even think about playing golf and I was a 40+ round a year golfer. It’s the only sport that I didn’t suck really badly. I think a neurosurgeon is the right route. Best of luck my friend.

    Many thanks, I do appreciate that.

    Eric, I'm also sorry for your situation. A friend of mine has bad back issues that the doctors cannot definitively diagnose, and scans do not reveal anything. I hope you can get some form of respite, if not healing.

    Thank you Mike.
    That is a very thoughtful gesture on your part.

    We are all in this fleeting existence together. There should be no room for that type of hatred against one another.

    I should say it's not my house but in my neighborhood. A friend of mine pointed out that the NZ flag should be underneath, despite that I think the intended sentiment was conveyed.
