  • Best wishes Jan for your operation

    Our forum friend Jan - croc cutter extraordinaire, intarsia specialist, retired nurse, aviator, fast car driver, flautist, lover of her husband John's jazz music, my travel guide to Italy, the creator and driving force behind Facebook's Intarsia Nut's group and generally adorable little old lady (to her friends, that is!) - is off to have one of her eyes blasted with laser surgery today.

    Best wishes Jan. Looking forward to hearing about your recovery and just how much hell you gave the medical professionals who treated you.

    I'm not sure why the saying 'Out of sight, out of mind' just surfaced from my grey matter whilst penning this post but rest assured that despite you being temporarily out of sight you will be in the mind of your forum buddies.

    Ciao amica e buona fortuna!

          Well, I'm off to the surgical center. A few months ago I noticed that the vision had gotten very blurry in one eye so I got it checked. Sure enough, a cataract had grown rapidly and was causing the problem. Today is the day the cataract will be removed and replaced with a corrective lens. Truth is, I'm excited about it and very happy the blurring will be gone. The rest of the truth is, it's not easy being on "the other side of the bed" after all the years of being the nurse instead of the patient.

          Thanks for the good wishes. I'm sure all will be well.

          to Jim: Grazie mille, amico.

                  Jan the best of luck on your surgery, you will be amazed at the positive results. Three years ago I had both eyes done and my vision was restored to 20/20. My glasses lense was as thick as the bottom of the old type coke bottles. I do not use any type of glasses anymore and the doctor says my vision will never change. I am indeed a happy 80 year old.

                      Thanks all. I'm back home, feeling fine except for the uncomfortable sensation of having a scratched eyeball. Thanks for all the concern and good thoughts. I can't wait for the blurry vision from too many eye drops and pupil dilatation to subside.

                                Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                                Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                                Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                                Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                                I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                                Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
