This is just too good not to share…

Some of you may or may not know for the last month or so I have been doing battle with what I have been told a tumor the size of a grapefruit growing on my right thyroid in my neck.

Well last week I had to have a biopsy done (where they stabbed me with 5 needles in my neck) to check to make sure it was not cancer. Good news, doctor gave me the results yesterday…NO CANCER!!! The tumor still has to be removed as it is crushing some veins in my neck blocking the blood flow to my brain.

Ok now I’m getting to the good part…the doctor just put me on some medicine (shot a day to the stomach…ouch) I was just reading the side effects…see # 1 in yellow…hmmm

Seems crazy to me to get on a drug that the # 1 side effect is the condition you are trying to cure…DOCTORS!!!

I guess there comes a point, do doctors really know best?????

Till next time Big Al

I'm back, its been a long time...LONG time since my last post. Hopefully I'll be getting post out on a regular bases. Got a few new toys since my last post, new iMac computer and a Go-Pro Camera Black Edition.   It should make blogging a lot more fun. 

I’ve been spending a lot of my free time in the gym lately 

but the weather is warm now and time to dust off the old bike and get some rides in

and of course video taping and snapping photos along the way. I’ve done a complete remodel of the Compound (story soon) not to mention I’ve been to a bunch of Diner, Drive-in and Dives, yes lots of photos of all of them and stories to follow. 

That being said, stay tuned till next time.


States I’ve traveled to over the years
