wearing an N95 mask and wearing nitrile gloves.
I’m not sure I understand wearing a mask.

Looking at our hospital website - this is also where I take Mrs. C to her specialist appointments - they have posted a guideline from the CDC:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Wash your hands well and frequently—at least 20 seconds with soap and water or with hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover cough/sneeze with a tissue, and then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean/disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • The CDC does not recommend that healthy/uninfected individuals use a mask to prevent becoming ill.

Tomorrow morning I get my spinal injection. Last week when Orthopedic One called to schedule the appointment, they clearly asked if I wanted to take the risk because of the pandemic. When they called yesterday to confirm tomorrow's appointment, I told them I would be there, wearing an N95 mask and wearing nitrile gloves. The gal said that wouldn't be necessary as we disinfect the building every hour. Now that's good to hear, but I just thought it was a little contradictory telling me that it could be risky and then saying I don't need to protect myself with gloves and mask. View attachment 732388
You oughta show up with the gloves and N95 mask, eye goggles, snorkel and a woman's head shower cap and see what her reaction is. :D :D

What is the regen mode? My new tractor is a 2012 1026R. Would it have that?
That's when the controller/computer decides that the particulate filter is sooted up enough to need cleaning.
It kicks RPM up to 1500, starts injecting raw diesel into the filter, elevates the temperature to blast soot particles out of the exhaust.
Happens at about 77% - 78% soot level, tier 4 EPA crap, takes about 1/2 hour.
There are two type of "regen", the 1 -series will not have what OC is talking about, but it will have the hydraulic kind discussed in this thread:

Stan,

There is so much conflicting information out there. However, it's my understanding that N95 masks are the ones that nurses and health care people are wearing to help protect them from contracting the disease. Then there are surgical masks that help prevent the spread of the disease by those already sick. I think health officials were afraid of a run on N95 masks, and they were correct. Major shortage, but hopefully these new sterilization systems produced by Battelle Research in Columbus, Ohio will be a game changer.

That said, I'm wearing it. I don't care if they disinfect the building 100 times a day. Attached is a recent article debating the issue.

They don’t recommend a mask for you because there is a shortage. They do recommend a mask for anyone required to be around sick people, like doctors.

It’s tempting to eBay the ones I have for working upstairs, I use a canister mask when working in dust. The disposable ones I only bought for volunteer help.

Makes sense - thanks for the link!

I basically get my info here as I don't watch commercial TV and only skim the headlines online.

Whenever we have to go to a doctor now I look on their site for recommendations. Thankfully our 1.5 year marathon of doctor visits seems to be over for the most part. Mrs. C had only 2 coming up the next 3 weeks and both have been canceled now. I swear I still have some type of jet lag.....

Keith? Really? PFFFFTTTT....... He has Mel's Towing on speed dial when he is on the treadmill!
:ROFLMAO: I like my chances of completing an exercise walk even better while in a Budlight induced stupor. I'm 6'3" and he is really short so he would have to take 2 steps to my 1 step. I just couldn't accept his help with a clear conscience but I appreciate the suggestion.
Raining for the 4th day in a row so that really helps the psyche during this virus bs. I am home for the duration unless I run out of beer. Be safe and stay home!

Well with me being higher than Keith and shorter than you, not sure if I could handle your steps since I'm 5' 11".

Oh well we tried managed to get 2 miles mowing and about 4 hrs, riding time on the x738.
Bought 28 gals of gas for $51.00 for the rider and push mower, and weedeater. . I told my wife, when Harley was living he had paid close to $125.00 for the same amount of gas.
Managed to ride and push mow, some trimming , changed oil in 2 push mower. Then we went and got gas ready to start mowing either next week or 2 weeks from now..

Tired and not planning on doing anything the rest of the evening.

Later
Good day

I studied up on this since my query and learned all about what you have described here. Until I start moving dirt this spring, I won’t know if the curl is drooping or not. If It does, I’ll be doing the curl regen before lifting the load to see how effective it is. As others posted, I won’t be handling loads where this could create any risk. I also plan to check the part number on the valve to see if it’s been replaced.

Thanks.

My wife directs a church choir and our church has cancelled any and all personal gatherings. They’ve been having services using the Zoom app with everyone participating from home. Our pastor and organist are the only ones physically in the church.

My wife just learned that a church choir in LA rehearsed together at their church. None had symptoms. Ten members ended up with Corona with two of them dying. Officials conclude that it likely spread during the rehearsal. We’re told that masks don’t help, but the virus almost had to be airborne. I told my wife if I had to be in relatively close proximity to the public, like a checkout person in a grocery store, I’d be wearing a mask. I had to get my second of two Shingles shots today and my pharmacist had one on the whole time.

Hope that does the trick with your sciatica, know what you're going thru.(y)
Thanks, OC. The orthopedic doctor also thinks that my balance issues are possibly caused by the pinched nerves. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Not only do I have my Keuffel & Esser Slide Rule I also have my Meylan Stopwatch from college days studying Industrial Engineering.

View attachment 732377

Used these extensively at my job doing Engineering work for a textile company at locations in MA, NH & NC. This was before we had access to electronic calculators. For some tedious work I used a mechanical comptometer. Anyone remember those..........??
Superglidesport ~ Ha, would that be a Frieden you're thinking of? Man, that's a long time ago, wow!

We have 1 and I guarantee it is from a city person that came to their camp here then got sick.
if that was or is the case then, according to our lady friend rachel something that is our specialist for pa. then wherever that positive person lives it would count for in there county.

that's what happened in altoona, 2 people from bedford, went to the altoona pital for treatment, at first they counted them in altoona county, then today our county receives those 2 people.

so no one out of ur county got sick that was from out of ur county-ok hope i explained ok.

Worms down there have feet?
:unsure:
Over there or up there would be acceptable. Down there is not.

He is not a damn southerner.

Damn southerner‘s please disregard the above sentence, It was meant for other southerners, not you.


On the way home yesterday realized that at least in my area you can’t buy liquor or firearms. Wonder it was planned this way....?
If Obama was president we would be up in arms right now.

All this talk about Slide Rules, the first few times of using it I was ready to throw it away.. Then after using it I like it , showed dad one day the angle he needed for rafters on a house. He showed me how using his square, both of us had the correct answer.. I remember him telling me I had no idea what I was talking about.

JDForever ~ Praying for the best for you. I had an injection in February for the same thing and it relieved the terrible pain very quickly . . . and it's still working. Doctor said I could have three injections per year if I needed them, no approval required.

We went in to Kroger today, none of the clerks were wearing masks. Kroger showed they were protecting there workers by installing shields between the clerk and the customer...
NOPE none to be found in Morgantown store, , I asked the clerk about the shield. She told me they would probably get them when the all clear comes....

Yes, I knew that and I felt your pain. I was reading your posts and praying for your relief. I had an injection in the general area in 2015 that last for about 3-4 years. I don't expect this one to last that long, but.......time will tell.

BTW: Have you regained your stabilty and balance......I think you said you had the wobblies.

Thanks,
Greg
