SIX WEEKS & counting


The WRECK ocurred 6 weeks ago (6/11/2010) today. I still have issues with my (right) leg (not allowed to put weight on it). I'm hoping this status will change after I meet with my surgeon again on August 12th - Which is less than 2 weeks away - and the next big date on my recovery calendar. However, I am toying with the idea of trying to see if I can stand it to stop using the prescription pain medicine I am on. I am to the point I'm pretty much only taking 2 of them when I go to bed - so that I can sleep. So with the weekend upon us - I'm thinking it might be a good time to try it out. I'll let you know how it works out.
On an unrelated subject - TVguide.com recently had an article titled "28 Must-see New TV shows for the Fall" - So I took a look at the pictures and read the article. Of the 28 Shows, I saw 1 (ONE) that I plan to watch and I had made plans to watch it months ago. That one show is a remake of one I watched with my parents when I was a kid. And if you haven't figured it out -its the new "Hawaii Five-O". So in my humble opinion - while quite a few of my favorites have ended or been cancelled - there is very little on the horizon to replace them. Some of my shows which are no more are: Numbers, Ghost Whisperer, Heroes - which ironically was the only NBC show I watched, and quite a few on the SyFy network. Which rolls me onto another topic. Since SyFy changed its name from SciFi they have rapidly been degenerating as a network. At one time, once of my most watched channels (due to classic sci fi programming) it has degenerated into a cesspool of reality programmming and wrestling! The few quality science fiction programs they had (BattleStar Galactica, Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis) have ended - with a few exceptions (Eureka, Warehouse 13). Now you might say - what about Stargate:Universe - So, yeah - what about it? I had high hopes and while I will continue to watch - but so far it has been the disappointing little brother in the SG series. As far as "Sanctuary" - loved season 1, season 2 was tepid. A third season is promised for this fall - but unless it starts to wow me the way season 1 did - I may drop this one on my own. Sci Fi (which on its own became SyFy) is in my opinion rapidly becoming Sigh!Feh!


I've digressed enough!


Everyone have a great day!
