    Looks like my backpacking trip is over before it ever began. I turned my ankle at work today and went to urgent care. The Dr. initially thought it was broken or was the worst sprain she had ever seen.

    Right before it happened I was talking a TON of trash to my coworker about our fantasy football game. He was done and I had the niners defense. I needed 13 points to win and already had it....I was in the urgent care when he changed his team name to kankle.

    Let me put it this way, Mr. Lerner has a number of well crafted opinions written about him and his associates by the Nevada Supreme Court regarding the ethical practice of law.

    My wife sent this to me yesterday, makes a lot of sense. I have been trying to get out for at least a short hike once a week so I can be less of a grumpy over-stressed ass.

    Not sure if you all have heard of the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku or "Forest Bathing", but it is consistent with what this article is saying. https://time.com/5259602/japanese-forest-bathing/

    I absolutely subscribe to that practice. Also important is grounding at least 30 minutes per day. I wear grounding sandals, which have a copper plug in the bottom, whenever possible. Unless I’m barefoot, which is even better.
