John Stone, an honorary member of the ACU, sent in this report about a tour of Wales he did this year.
The plan is that 69y old (AJ) Allan Jory takes his 70s Triumph 110, our mate up the county in ‘Carnworthy Water’ 79y old John (Gunner) Penfound will ride his reliable Twin Kwaker 500 that has served him so well. It was unfortunate turn of circumstance that caused the Velo to be put away after a real good hose down as you will discover later.( One never knows when the Ambulance calls!) But all is well now. Wednesday, the morning of departure arrives; AJ and JS cast eyes skywards, then take a chance leaving the wet suits off. JS had intended to get to the older of the Severn Bridge crossing to Wales via the ‘Severn Beach’ at Avonmouth. This time no problem we are soon on a free trip high over the ‘Severn Estuary’ and shortly enter our first night’s stopover the town of ‘Chepstow’ What a great little Town.
Come morning after breakfast we move all our belongings back into the ‘Beaufort’ for safety and set off to explore the Town and Castle which turns out to be very interesting. Anyway, after a thoroughly good stay in ‘Chepstow’ including a short ride out, it is with the intention to return at some later date we set off over and beneath the mountains of Wales. Gunner is getting restless with a sore ass and has had enough of the lanes lined with moss and lichens that needs full concentration and respect on two wheels. Now it is only a short ride to relieve Gunners Bum and reach our destination when a minor disaster occurs AJ’s rear rack had sheared and his luggage was hanging off the side of the Triumph. This fact had obviously been discovered by the members of the Vintage Club as come evening it is full to capacity with its members. To my astonishment, AJ has taken a liking to the Tulip Directions and volunteers to take the lead. AJ did a tremendous job over the next 3 days guiding us all over the selected scenic routes. These three days took us along roads that only the locals know and we are in their debt for the time they took preparing the Tulip Guides. The Saturday run of some 130 miles took us through Newbridge, Rhayader, Staylittle, Bettws Cedewain, Garthmyle, Clun and Penybont.
Perhaps the highlight for us was when we were high in the hills suddenly the Kawasaki clutch cable parted company.
Sunday: The main feature of today’s trip was the Heritage site of ‘Blaenavon’ with it’s Steam railway on a special visiting engines weekend. On arrival well in front of the rest we took advantage of the special rates negotiated for us and had a ride up and down the short track getting off at the Whistle top Inn for lunch. Come Monday Gunner had had enough and pulled out of the last day to rest his posterior prior to the long drag home on Tuesday.
It is inspiring to see as we did chaps of advanced age who had lost the use of one or more limbs yet still wanted to ride a motorcycle. AJ was still enjoying route finding with the Tulip system so it was just the two of us that set off at an upped pace on Monday. Come Tuesday a unanimous decision see’s us take the direct route back via the motor way so with the Velo beating out its steady staccato beat for mile after mile it’s goodbye Wales then 200miles later we say farewell to Gunner at Launceston. Ivan Hart-Davies was killed in a flying accident in 1917, he had been an insurance broker in the Midlands for most of his working life, but he was also the holder of a lands speed record that will never be broken. Most riders of modern machinery have little idea what its like to ride a motorcycle of that time, but one way to of  making a comparison between a brand new machine and one made a hundred years ago might be to choose any bike that you want- lets say a BMW GS series.
The success of Triumphs design is based around a low compression, 500cc side valve engine which produces an incredible torque, and just keeps going no matter what. Many attempts at the record were made by factory prepared and entered machines, but also by enthusiastic amateurs. There are those who have re created these journeys on similar bikes in more recent times, often with a back up van, and taking up to a week or so to complete the trip. The Triumph used is from 1911, and apart from the extra fuel tank is exactly like the one Hart-Davies used. Through Truro with its glimpses of the high tide outside Radio Cornwall, the car parks and Cathedral, Tesco’s roundabout, then uphill to take the Redruth road instead of following the direction toward Falmouth. Now Portreath, pretty as it is, sits at the foot of a very long and very steep hill which is approached by a sand strewn hairpin bend. North Cliffs are steep, Hells Mouth is what it says on the tin, but the views of St Ives and the lighthouse at Godrevy are spectacular. One of the worst scenarios for a single speed belt driver is an uphill approach to a major road at a T junction. Hart Davies had magneto problems in Penzance and pushed the bike all the way to the top of Market Jew street before it would start again. The Triumph and the BSA had done their job, and were remarkably unfazed by the whole thing.
If your pet is unfortunate enough to have an encounter with a snake you can help by being aware of the signs and symptoms of snake bite, and getting the affected animal to the hospital as quickly as possible. The first clue that a pet has been bitten may just be a small amount of blood on the coat, face or limb with a some soft tissue swelling around a small puncture wound(s). Most snake bites in humans occur when people try to kill snakes, often after seeing them bite a pet. Calling ahead gives us critical extra time to make necessary preparations to ensure prompt and effective treatment. When you call, listen very carefully to the announcements, and then call the emergency mobile number on the message (Mark sometimes has a night off with the after hours phone going to another vet). If your pet has stopped breathing, attempt mouth to nose resuscitation and if possible continue this during transport of your pet to the hospital. These days the treatment of snake bite has a good success rate, and with appropriate and timely medical therapy many patients recover completely. The unfortunate animal will require constant monitoring, day and night, every one or two hours for the first 24 hours then every three hours for the next two days, with high rate intravenous infusions, blood clotting products and regular blood tests. If a snake needs removal from the property, contact WIRES to ask for theie recommended local snake handler.
Hyperthyroidism in Cats: Great News!This is a very interesting disease of cats which we see in nearly any age group.
Hyper-active thyroids (hyperthyroidism) make cats act like a car all revved up- ravenous appetite, hyper-active (just like my kids), under weight, often difficult to handle (again like my kids!) and may suffer from heart failure- rapid heart rate, shortness of breath, panting. By performing a simple blood test, we can diagnose affected cats and institute therapy to knock-out the thyroid hormones causing all the problems.
Left un-treated, hyperthyroid cats run the major risk of high blood pressure and heart failure. The ventricles become smaller and smaller and as a result, can’t fill up with the same volume of blood.
Treated cases usually see an improvement in heart function and the removal of heart drugs from the treatment regime at this stage i.e.
Blood test are performed before and 24-36 hours after starting therapy to ensure the kidneys can handle having the blood pressure dropped. Kidney DiseaseDogs and cats can suffer from either acute or chronic renal failure caused by many different types of illnesses. Kidneys have powerful protective mechanisms in place which kick into action if problems arise.
Kidneys are also responsible for sending messages to the bone marrow telling it to make more red blood cells (RBC's) to replace the old ones which are "gobbled up" by the spleen and liver when they are worn out. As with most diseases, early detection and treatment is much more preferable especially for a vitally important organ like the kidneys. For all our renal failure cases, we use a Doppler machine to record elevations in blood pressure and measure response to blood pressure lowering medications. Force feeding using a stomach tube through which fluids and liquidised renal support diets can be administered.
For cases with elevated Phosphorous in their body, we can use drugs called phosphate binders.
For young cats in Australia with kidney failure, there is the possibility of kidney transplantation in Brisbane, but it is quite involved and the donor cat has to be taken on as a new family pet.
Parvovirus- the Ebola equivalentWe all know about Ebola- one of the nastiest and most contagious viral diseases for man. Parvovirus has to be one of the nastiest and most infectious diseases of dogs causing severe suffering with a very high fatality rate despite all the best intensive care. Surprisingly, because Parvovirus has been around for so long, some pet owners have either forgotten what it does to dogs, or they were not yet born when it first arrived on the scene in a world wide epidmiec in the 1980's.
Parvovirus is a virus that attacks the lining of a dog’s stomach and intestines and literally strips it out. If pet owners are struggling financially, vets often have to euthanise infected dogs before starting any therapy. Camden vets had 10 Parvovirus cases in just one day, not to mention how many cases they had for a whole year! In a recent national study, there were 1,200 cases reported - and that was from only a small number of vet practices taking part in the survey. When Parvovirus first occurred in the 1980’s, people were not aware of just how tough and contagious it was. Well, the very fact that Parvovirus managed to spread across the world in just 2 years puts a few holes in this statement. A dog either brewing or in the recovery stage of a Parvovirus infection, sheds millions of the viruses into the environment. It does not take long for an epidemic of Parvovirus to occur if the general dog population has a low vaccination percentage.
Parvovirus can affect dogs of all ages; however dogs less than one year of age are particularly susceptible.
Treatment is difficult because there is no way to kill the virus once it has infected the dog. Treatment is intensive and involves hospitalisation in an isolation ward (sometimes for many days), aggressive fluid therapy, antibiotics, pain relief and anti-vomiting drugs. Despite all of these treatments, a high percentage of dogs die a few days later leaving the owner with no dog and a very large vet bill.
Malignant tumour of the adrenal glands- tumours made up of the cortisone producing cells of the adrenal glands make excessive cortisone. Dogs with pituitary gland tumours can go on to live comfortably for some time until the tumour gets too big and starts to place pressure on adjacent parts of the brain.At this stage, we might see symptoms such as blindness and other hormone imbalances. Unfortunately, adrenal gland tumours are often malignant and can spread to other parts of the body.
Suspected cases have blood tests done to try and find out where the excess cortisone is coming from. Until recently, most cases were treated with a drug called Lysodren which destroys the parts of the adrenal glands that make cortisone.
Many cases on Trilostane can have the dose lowered after a few months, which helps with the budget.
Diabetes is commonly seen in Cushing's cases, probably as a result of cortisone interfering with the action of insulin. Before embarking on treatment, owners need to be very aware of the expensive nature of treament. In human medicine, pituitary gland tumous can be removed by specialist surgeons operating through the nose or roof of the mouth. Increased Thirst (Polydypsia)There are a large number of causes of increased thirst (polydypsia) in pets.
Blood tests (biochemistry and full blood count) give an overall picture of a pet's health. Pets and humans can donate a kidney (and therefore be down to 50% total kidney function) and still lead a healthy life with no elevation of kidney blood tests or polydypsia.
If their remaining kidney becomes diseased, and loses over half of its ability to function, kidney blood test start to rise i.e. When there is 25-50% of healthy kidney function, kidney blood tests are often normal, but the urine may be dilute (low specific gravity). Between 50-100%, the urine will still be concentrated (high specific gravity), and bloods normal. It is important to check a urine sample as it can detect kidney failure long before a blood test. These chemicals travel down a special tube from the pancreas into the first part of the small intestines (the Duodenum).
Sometimes as pets get older and fatter, the pancreas gets inflamed or worn out from too much of a workload e.g. Traveling through the pancreas is the bile duct- a tube connecting the gall bladder in the liver to the duodenum.
We normally see pancreatitis in older overweight dogs or dogs being fed too many fatty meals e.g. From the history, breed, sex, age, symptoms and clinical examination, a vet usually has a pretty good idea the pet is suffering from pancreatitis. A special in-house blood test ( Idexx SNAP CPL) gives an accurate positive result in pancreatitis cases (blue dot on the right is the same or darker than the dot on the left- see picture). Other blood tests may show elevated white blood cells combating inflammation and infection and elevated liver enzymes if the bile duct becomes blocked. As mentioned above, the inflamed pancreas can block the bile duct, so jaundice is a common symptom, sometimes seen 1-2 days after the start of the condition. Cases failing to respond to therapy may require surgery to rule out pancreatic cancer or to gently flush the affected area to try and settle the inflammation. Repeated episodes of pancreatitis can destroy the ability of the pancreas to produce food digesting acids and alkalis, resulting in chronic diarrhoea.
In humans, there is an overall 20% fatality rate, usually due to a secondary infection developing in the affected areas of the abdomen. Dogs with pancreatitis and diabetic keto-acidosis have a poor prognosis and despite the best of efforts, may die from complications. Treatment can be very costly due to the length of stay in hospital with intensive care, drugs, repeat blood tests and fluid therapy. Boxer CardiomyopathyThis condition is characterised by feinting (syncope) and sudden death in Boxer dogs. The problem is due to a run of extra heartbeats interrupting the normal flow of oxygen rich blood to the brain. These extra heartbeats originate in damaged heart muscle in the right ventricle (ventricular premature contractions -VPC's). A run of several or more VPC's can cause sudden death which is a common consequence of the condition. By listening to the heart for several minutes with a stethoscope, a vet may detect a skip in the normal heart rhythm although this is not a sure fire way of detecting a problem as affected dogs can go for several hours without as much as one skipped VPC. Similarly, connecting a dog to an ECG machine to record the heartbeat for a few minutes may miss a run of VPC's.
Listening to the heart or recording an ECG while the dog has a syncopal episode would be ideal way to diagnose the problem, but these events tend to happen away for vet surgeries and owners can be too stressed to  think about recording the heartbeat while their unconscious dog lies at their feet. Specialist cardiologists can loan out 24hr ECG recording machines (Halters) which attach to the trunk of the body in special leather harnesses.
Quite often it is astounding to see how many runs of VPC's occur while the dog is asleep. Atrial FibrillationSome dogs with dilated cardiomyopathy and left A-V valve disease get a life threatening arrhythmia called atrial fibrillation. Each time the damaged atrium contracts, it tries to sends an electrical signal to the ventricles below telling it to contract as "its their turn now".
The refractory period may only be a split part of a second, and follows a normal ventricle contraction. In effect, the atria are doing their own rapid irregular heart beat and 8 times out of 10 their extra contractions cause the ventricles to contract.
As a result, we see the ventricles pumping at a much faster and irregular rate than in a dog with no atrial fibrillation.
If a dog has either A-V valve disease or dilated cardiomyopathy, the ventricles are already having a hard time.
Cardiac output is reduced in A-V valve disease and dilated cardiomyopathy, so oxygen rich blood does not reach vital organs e.g. But don't forget the heart which is the most dynamic oxygen hungry organ (next to the brain). The last thing the diseased ventricles want is atrial fibrillation causing them to contract even faster. Atrial fibrillation can very quickly cause the ventricles to fail and lead to sudden heart failure and death.
On exmination, the heart rate is very rapid and irregular- often over 200 beats a minute (nearly 3-4 beats a second).
A normal ECG has one P wave (atrial contraction) followed by one QRS wave (ventricle contraction) and a normal heart rate of approx 100-140. Atrial fibrillation shows rapid irregular spaced ventricle heartbeats (QRS waves) and no regular P waves.
After I broke my last pair of earbuds because of the sweat, I decided to get a new pair of sweat-proof earbuds for workout.
After doing some research, I came down to two options: Soundpeats QY7 Mini Lightweight Bluetooth Sport Earbuds or Jabees Beating Bluetooth Sweatproof Sports Earbuds.


Since the Soundpeats QY7 bluetooth sport earbuds came partially charged, I decided to test out the battery life as soon as I paired them to my phone. I mostly use my bluetooth headphones for running on the treadmill so I don’t want them to fall out while I run.
I tried these bluetooth earbuds for running in the past few days, and they didn’t fall out. Nov 22, 2011 It sounds almost like a low bass drum in my head At first I thought it was beating with my heart, which bothered me. Remedy to overcome tinnitus, i e ringing in the ears ears, the sound may be quite loud and may indeed sound like the beating of a drum I have had ringing in my ears, tinnitus for about. It's like a really quick drum beat and I think I can basically feel my eardrum beating It could. Aug 28, 2006 Sounds in the air cause pressure waves to vibrate your ear drum when they reach your ears Remember those beat-up stereocilia from above? Tinnitus is the medical name for the perception of noise in one ear, both ears or Most people describe it as a ringing sound but other sounds may include:. But another risk is a phenomenon that is just the opposite: perceiving sounds i wish this could go away it sounds like flies or. As part of the test, you'll sit in a soundproof room wearing earphones through which will be played specific sounds into one ear at a time.
With cars and lorries to the left of us and the right of us and behind and in front of us and with Jane (SatNav) shouting in my ear JS missed the turn. For me this was fantastic over the many years we have toured with maps and later with Jane talking in my ear, because of AJ’s eye problems I am mostly up front.
We were discussing how to find a means of repair when who should turn the corner was the local postman Pat.
Have you ever really looked at an old Scott Twin, tell you what it is a real interesting machine. It even had turned alloy disc retainers to fit the end of the Footrest, Gear change and Kick Start rubbers. One very sociable fellow we met had a cancer in the leg so had it off and converted his HS Ariel trials outfit to L foot change and brake if he reads this I am still drooling over the Velo he told me about. AJ continues down the A30 as I, JS branches off at ‘Hamburger Hill’ to ride the swerves of the ‘Ladock Valley’.
He was the fastest official, that is timed by the ACU, person to travel on a motorcycle between John o’ Groats and Land’s End. The rear wheel is driven directly from the crankshaft with no impediment in the form of gearbox or clutch.
The summer months when the hours of daylight were at their longest was a favourite time to have a go. The Triumph clatters away, overtaking and using its momentum to pull it up the inclines, whilst the BSA can rely on its slogging powers and the use of a very low bottom gear to conquer the hills. Note; when going slowly uphill, and having to cross into the outside filter lane, it is advisable to look behind quite often before attempting the manoeuvre. There is no automatic oiling on these bikes, you have to manually push a plunger and give the engines a good squirt of oil straight into their guts. Stronger and fitter people have ridden it on belt drivers, once I did it all the way, on my own, with a 2 ? Douglas.
I didn’t do a wheelie over the hump backed bridge, but still the surfer girl with the board under her arm eyed me warily.
He suffered more punctures, and eventually ran out of inner tubes; he finished the last mile with no tyre at all on the rim. The Triumph, as one writer observed, was the first bike that could break a man, rather than the man break it.  Not quite broken we had another cup of tea and an ice cream, then loaded the bikes onto the trailer for the fast trip up the dual carriageway to our respective homes and garages.
Dogs, cats and horses are all at risk, although curious dogs are the most frequently affected. Tiger and Brown snakes are also prevalent, especially on Coolangatta Mountain and adjacent flat lands.
But don't waste time trying to find it as we stock a multi-snake anti-venom that covers Black, Tiger and Brown snake bites. If we are at home, have the after hours going to another vet, or are out on a house call, you will be using up what might be precious time - always call first!
But treating snake bite is always arduous for the affected pet, as well as for the vet and the nurses. Consequently, it can be expensive, although it may be covered by pet health insurance if you have it.
With the rapid heart rate, the heart muscles get thicker and thicker- its a bit like a weight lifter doing extra work. Less blood in means less blood out of the heart, and reduced blood supply to the body and its vital organs eg kidneys, liver, heart. In some cats, the high blood pressure from hyperthyroidism is keeping their poorly functioning kidneys going.
Should your remaining kidney lose up to 50% of its ability to concentrate urine, you can still appear normal although you may be drinking a bit more and making dilute urine. A Senior Pet Health Check urine examination looks at the concentrating ability of the kidneys to detect early reduction in kidney function. In other words, the pet makes more urine than normal because the kidneys can't re-absorb the water out of the urine like they did when healthy. We would rather diagnose renal failure before clinical signs or blood tests indicate its presence.
It is very accurate at detecting early kidney problems long before blood tests start to indicate a problem.
It can survive up to 18 months in soil or concrete and needs strong disinfectants to kill it.
International travellers and infected or recovering dogs being flown to other countries would infect healthy dogs upon their arrival- either by direct contact with another dog or with their clothing, bedding and foot wear. It is vital all puppies and adult dogs are vaccinated against parvovirus and your vet will advise on the appropriate vaccination schedule.
Referral to a specialist may be an option if the tumour is in just one adrenal galnd and not adhered to any vital structures e.g. They must be fully committed and prepared to put up with regular blood tests and expensive drug bills. Besides the expected increase in thirst with hot days, exercise or change to a drier food,  any pet showing polydypsia over 2-3 days should be examined by a vet. The pancreas is a special organ that makes many different chemicals such as insulin, acids and alkalis which help digest and process foods.
Repeating these tests during the dog's stay in hospital gives the vet an good idea on how the dog is going.
Diabetes and all of its associated complications (keto-acidosis) can be a life threatening presenting sign.
It is unlike the traditional form of cardiomyopathy we see in large dog breeds (most of the time).
By the time they do have a feel of the heartbeat or pulse, the rhythm may be back to normal as it may have just been a run of several VPC's taking up less than 1-2 seconds of time. A computer runs through the 24hrs of recording in seconds and prints out a report highlighting all the abnormal heartbeats. The damaged area fires off its own electrical current causing the atrium to contract very rapidly (sometimes as much as 200-300 times a minute).
Not every electrical impulse gets through to the ventricle as a number of these extra charges arrive at the ventricle when it is in a "none-responsive" state (refractory period).
Once it has passed, the extra electrical signals from the damaged atrium above can trigger off a ventricle contraction. Any reduction in output means less oxygen for the heart muscles, so they can't pump as well as they would like. There is often evidence of left sided heart failure - coughing, weakness, pale gums, weak thready rapid pulse. I didn’t want to spend too much on these earbuds because they tend to break after a year or so of heavy use, so I limited my search on bluetooth sport earbuds with a price tag of less than $40. I simply turned on the bluetooth setting of my iPhone, put the earbuds next to it, and pressed the main button with the logo on it for a few seconds. I have to use the smallest ear tips and ear hooks with the Soundpeats QY7 because I have small ears. These earbuds also block out some of the external noise so I don’t have to turn the volume too high to listen to the audio. If you’re in the market for a pair of low price bluetooth sport earbuds, you should definitely give the Soundpeats QY7 a try.
Mine is a constant thumping that does not go with my heartbeat, unless my heart is beating at 240 bpm, in which case I would My whoosh sounds. Here to take part in the Vintage Motorcycle Clubs ‘Touring Section’ event, run over three days in Wales.
Then got completely lost and ended up off junction 10 headed for Bristol with Jane going berserk.
When we come across the ‘Ashley’ Canal Tunnel we ride alongside it’s flow for quite some miles even making a short stop for sustenance in one of it’s many hostelries. Now this for me JS is going to be a new way of riding I have to go at their speed now, not mine. Now think this is 1927-35 period and you have a two stroke with exposed crank flywheel, individual water jackets and side entry through crankcase doors to the big ends. He did it on a single speed, 500cc Triumph in June 1911 and it took him an astounding 29 hours and 12 minutes. However the ride is still an epic one, and was beyond the resources and capabilities of many who tried. It is possible however to get an inkling of what it may have been like by riding the very last part of the John O Groats to Lands End route on a 1911 Motorcycle. The first long hill up to Lanivet sees us both giving lpa, that is light pedal assistance, to assist the labouring engines. If the Triumph is baulked and stalls, then there is little alternative but to go back and start all over again, frustrating and exhausting, once stopped it is impossible to pedal fast enough uphill to get the engine firing. Another of those mini roundabouts successfully completed, and Sunday morning traffic around the Hospital, Sainsbury’s and MacDonald’s negotiated, its on to Chasewater, and the B roads that pass through old mining country. It’s supposed to be very 5 miles or so, but both of us, in deference to the age of the motors tend to over oil.
My eyes were spinning in opposite directions at the top, and steam was issuing from my armpits but I did it. More traffic and roundabouts to be negotiated in Hayle, a ragged cheer from a group sitting outside a pub by the railway bridge brings a smile.
Alternatively stop completely and push across, go in the opposite direction until a suitable place can be found to turn around and have another go. Actually the sight of Land’s End in the distance brings both a sense of relief and of achievement. Try the trip we took on a modern bike, and you might get some idea of what was involved one hundred years ago. But it’s always better to keep your pets out of likely snake habitat and avoid the risk.
This thickening happens at the expense of the chamber (ventricle) sizes, and is called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM).
Dialysis is performed in people with renal failure to filter out the waste products that the kidney normally places in the urine. When we run blood tests on renal failure cases, we see elevated levels of urea (Blood Urea Nitrogen- BUN), Creatinine and Phosphate. More urine going out of the body automatically triggers a chemical release in the brain which makes the pet thirsty.
If the kidneys are not working properly, chemicals are released which elevate the blood pressure in an attempt to improve the flow of blood through the kidney and remove waste products that are building up in the body. Because RBC's are responsible for carrying oxygen around the whole body, the pet is quite weak and easily fatigued.
Treatment involves intensive care, fluid therapy, pain relief, blood transfusions and no guarantee of success.
In a very old patient, no treatment may be a more preferable propositon especially if the owners are on a budget. When making the appointment, try to bring along a fresh urine sample as a lot of information can be found by examining it.
In other words, we don't normally see elevated kidney tests in chronic renal failure until there is only 25% of healthy tissue left.
The kidneys aren't doing their job of "recycling water" by sucking water out of the urine before it goes to the bladder to be voided. This small amount of inflammation results in leakage of acids and alkalis both inside and adjacent to the pancreas. Some older dogs can develop pancreatic cancer which looks just the same as normal pancreatitis. Dogs must go onto an IV drip to correct dehydration and reverse shock and damage to the kidneys.
This is important to provide fluid and nutrition to the cells lining the stomach and intestines. It is vital that repeat episodes are avoided as too much damage to the pancreas can result in lack of insulin (diabetes) or the inability to digest and absorb foods (pancreatic exocrine insufficiency). Boxer cardiomyopathy is also known as "Boxer arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy". They are bigger than the Jabees Beating earbuds, but I only use these bluetooth earbuds for running so it’s ok. I tried to use the cable shortener that comes with the earbuds to shorten the cable a bit, but it kind of made it worse because somehow the cable would curve up behind my neck. I too have started hearing my heartbeat in my right starting at 19 weeks (the sound comes and.
It has done a number of End to End and other Road Trials, numerous Speed Hill Climbs a great trip to ‘Keil’ in Germany.
AJ has ignition problems it seems when cold all is well, hot, o dear, to the extent that the continual kicking trying to fire it up fractures the centre stand.
Odd, anyhow we adjourn to the bar, shortly to be told they had made an error and booked us in for the Thursday not Wednesday. Thus refuelled we are again climbing into the grey skies and find ourselves on the high cold moors where even the sheep have padded anoraks on.
Gunner did an excellent job of keeping the bike going only to stall it in traffic as we entered the Town.
One of the ones we saw had had its lube changed with the fitment of a Yamaha oil feed pump to facilitate good oiling but less smoke. After this attempt, the ACU cried “enough!” fearful of public and legal reactions if speeds were to increase, and accidents to the public might occur.
Now try and ride it 900 miles, some of which should be on green lanes just to understand road conditions of the time and certainly not using Motorways. To start, the bicycle style pedals are used, a decompresor lever allows the engine to turn with little resistance, until a speed of around 5mph is attained, the lever is dropped and forward motion begins as the engine fires up. Sharp flints caused endless punctures, frames broke, handlebars bent in crashes, lights fell off, and the wrong roads were taken.
Both machines have experienced riders, both have had a degree of mechanical overhaul, and there is a back up trailer. The BSA‘s neutral, and the availability of the clutch makes such a difference at road works, traffic lights and the like. Engine house stacks point skywards from gorse bushes and the main railway line to London is never far way. The problem with this is that they smoke; they produce a lot of carbon on top of the pistons, but worse, unused oil is ejected straight onto the belts. Then it’s on to Long Rock, although I did go to Marazion car park for wee.  A helicopter from St Marys whistles overhead and lands in the Heliport, and The Scillonian is tied up in the harbour.
The pioneers had to do this many times on their journey, no wonder that by this stage they were getting very close to physical exhaustion. If they are inactive (hypo-thyroidism), pets are lazy, over weight, have skin problems and greasy coats. In fact, many dogs only survive 2-3 days with this intensive care before dying, leaving pet owners with huge vet bills and no dog. It did not take long before surrounding parks and streets were covered in millions of viruses. This means a dog may appear healthy, but can be excreting virus particles in its faeces and so become a source of infection to other dogs while the disease is brewing in its intestines. As a result, bile "backs up" in the liver and can cause a yellow staining of the blood, skin and gums (jaundice). Dehydration and shock quickly follow, making the dog thirsty, however each time it drinks, more leakage of the acids and alkalis occurs. If they are very rapid, the ventricle does not have time to fill up to the top befoire it is "told" to contract. After a considerable amount of phone calls on their part trying to get us accommodation (Chepstow was very busy as the Horse races were on the following day) they finally tell us they had booked us into a place just down the road, gave us a free drink and the cash difference in the cost of the replacement accommodation.


Descending out of the gloom we enter into the Old Coal mining area of ‘Blaenavon’ it must be home to a lot of good people but it seems a cold desolate place after Cornwall. Hart-Davies could have chosen a two speed hub if he had wished, but he stated that the single speeder was more than adequate for all the hills encountered, and in the event of the inevitable puncture, he could take out the rear wheel quickly and easily. The Cornwall Section of the VMCC organise their annual Lands End Run every June, starting at the Bodmin and Wenford Steam Railway and avoiding the newer roads, preferring instead the either the ”Turnpike” or the “Traditional”route. This is because having ridden there, we both felt that a lift home in a trailer would be appropriate. The back roads around the Owl Sanctuary lead through Fraddon and then onto the beautiful Ladock Valley with its downhill sweeps through woods and pastures and which in turn ends up by Tresillian Creek, a tributary of the river Fal. Briefly joining  the old Redruth by pass, then off again heading down to the coast, the route goes past the Gold Centre and mining heritage place, to the small seaside resort of Portreath. On modern bikes you don’t even notice most hills, but believe you me, between Penzance and Lands End there are three real crackers. One can only guess at their emotions, especially those who made the trip but were outside of the record time by just a few hours or minutes. The brain realises it is losing more "water" than it should be from the body, so it activates the "thirst centre" in the brain which makes the pet look for water. Acute secondary kidney failure can occur due to the large amount of fluid loss causing thickening of the blood and decreased blood flow to vital organs.
This, together with the starting problem makes AJ reconsider and he makes a change of steed to his two year old Triumph.
This general commotion had put a question mark in AJ’s head on his booking of the rooms in ‘Llandridnod Wells’. We are told he is an x winner of the International Six Days on an Ariel and turns up every year.
One poor rider was found wandering in an obscure Cornish lane, completely lost and at the point of collapse. These actually go into the towns, preferring the by-passed villages and cliff tops to the hassle of the main trunk roads. Penzance is not easy with its pedestrian crossings, lights, parked cars but after the Promenade and towards Newlyn it is easier. Soon we discover all the activity is for the ‘Tour of Briton Cycle Race’ must say to be in the centre of it all was quite exciting. One lad broke his right bar on the trip but his ingenuity had used a mudguard stay to brace it from the top of the forks, secured by mole grips and he had a clamp around the crack. Hart-Davies was not a speed merchant and would not have succeeded in racing, but he had phenomenal stamina and strength which enabled him to take part in all day scraps against the best in the Country. Others, with little in the way of backup, ran out of spares, seized their engines or could not find food and petrol during the night. The Turnpike also has the distinct advantage of being as flat as it is possible to get in such a hilly country as Cornwall.
Just after the Art Gallery, by Newlyn Harbour the road turns right to join the main route to Lands End. More damage to the pancreas means more leakage and it does not take long for massive inflammation and tissue destruction to occur.
It may feel like tilting the head should drain the fluid, but unfortunately the The eardrum is a layer of skin in the middle. I brought him to Your disciples, but they couldna€™t heal him.a€?A  Jesus replied, a€?You unbelieving and rebellious generation! When the cyclists swished past at considerable speed, we could but imagine the fitness of these athletes to surmount the very mountain we had descended.
To help in his attempt he had a lot of amateur assistance, volunteers in white coats on their own Triumphs would wait at junctions and guide him along unfamiliar routes, or through the maze of streets in large towns and cities.
It also provides an alternative tour for modern motorcyclists to show off parts of the Cornish Countryside which may not be quite so familiar to visitors. Here you can turn left if you want and go through the narrow streets of Mousehole, or straight on up the very steep Paul Hill leading to the village where the very last native Cornish speaker, Dolly Pentreath , is commemorated. The roads were still in very poor condition, especially in Scotland, Stray animals were everywhere, and potholes and nails from horseshoes were an extra hazard. Bring him here to Me.a€? Then Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him, and from that moment the boy was healed. During conversation at the Dealers, explaining what we were doing in Wales he tells us a quick way to get to the planned ‘Tulip’ lunch stop, as we arrive the gang are finishing up their meal ready to resume the route. Then the disciples approached Jesus privately and said, a€?Why couldna€™t we drive it out?a€? a€?Because of your little faith,a€? He told them. Here the sheep either have a death wish or want to try riding pillion, dam me it was a matter of inches JS nearly had one on or in the bike, jumping like a gazelle it was. Gunner was getting ready to taste the Lamb Steak before JS had chance to realise what had happened. However, this kind does not come out except by prayer and fasting.a€?This same story is repeated in Mark Chapter 9, vs. Continuing eyes wide open, we catch the tale end riders well before the end of a great day. Replace Tank etc tickle the carb, first kick and away she goes in perfect mechanical rhythm.
I was there for forty days and forty nights, all that time I ate no food and drank no water. The Lord gave me the two tablets on which God had written with his own finger all the words he had spoken to you from the heart of the fire when you were assembled at the mountain. At the end of the forty days and nights, the Lord handed me the two stone tablets inscribed with the words of the covenant.Matthew Chapter 4, vs.
1-2 (NLT): Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted there by the devil.
16-18 (NLT): And when you fast, dona€™t make it obvious, as the hypocrites do, for they try to look miserable and disheveled so people will admire them for their fasting.
Then no one will notice that you are fasting, except your Father, who knows what you do in private.
As you can see above: Demons are cast out, the Holy Spirit speaks, Moses received the Ten Commandments, and Jesus had the strength to overcome Satana€™s temptations.
It can strengthen our faith and get difficult prayers answered.There are different types of fasting. We are trying this for 21 days to achieve some answers from God and help get some desperate and difficult prayers answered.
Fasting, praying, and special giving during the first month of the year sets the tone for the rest of the year.
Fasting should be done in combination with things that can increase your faith, wisdom, and hearing from the Lord. Read a good Christian book, read Goda€™s Word in the Bible, listen with praise and worship to Christian music, and of course pray.
Thought for the week:A  For more advice and understanding read a€“ a€?Fastinga€? by Jentezen Franklin. 22-24: The Lord God used the rib of the man to make a woman, and then he brought the woman to the man.
And the man said, a€?Now, this is someone whose bones came from my bones, whose body came from my body.
13: If a man has sexual relations with another man as a man does with a woman, these two men have done a hateful sin. Most are basically good people that give to charities, help with the homeless, do good deeds and are friendly and nice to people.
There are gay celebrities on TV that do wonderful works of mercy and charity for other people.
However, if you are gay and dona€™t turn from your present life style and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior you will go to the pool of fire (Hell). Yes, there is such a place and it is for eternity.A  If you intend to do it a€?somedaya€™, I hope you dona€™t get hit by a car and die before that happens. He wrote the rule book (the Bible) and it is expressed in it several times that he feels the punishment for this is death. We are all sinners in one way or another and must try hard to turn from our former self before we knew Jesus as our Lord. To the ones who say it is genetic or upbringing, I offer this: Alcoholism can be passed down through genes and wife-beating can be passed down through upbringing. God is the highest authority, how do you think he will judge according to the Ten Commandments and his Word in the Bible? Hook up with a good faith based organization like a€?Food for the Poora€? or a€?World Visiona€? and help these people out. God Bless.====================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop 1-21-2010. We run the risk of becoming weaker when we stay at home, so gradually we wona€™t even notice.
Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.a€? Notice it says he is looking for someone, like a lion does. They need Christian friends and other Christian adults if they are to survive in this world.
Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.a€?7 Because we need the help of good people. Pastors cannot serve full-time, a building cannot be purchased, missionaries will not be sent out, ministries to the community wona€™t be fulfilled, and the lost wona€™t be saved. And how can they preach unless they are sent?a€?10 Because God says we should go to church regularly.
30-31: And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will morn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with a trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. 10: But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a mighty roar and the elements will be dissolved by fire, and the earth and every thing done on it will be found out. 36-43: But of that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.
In (those) days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day that Noah entered the ark. Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of the night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into. So too you also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.
Pilots vanish, drivers vanish, wives vanish, neighbors vanish, and it is a world wide supernatural event that happens at the exact same time. There are no second chances of dropping to your knees and asking for forgiveness because it comes and goes in a blink of an eye. Wars, Nation against Nation, famines, earthquakes, natural disasters, and a sin loving generation.
I always interpreted the a€?He will come like a thief in the nighta€? as have a duel meaning. Some people know in advance when they will die and they, believe it or not, are the lucky ones. Hint: It is hot, miserable, people are gnashing their teeth and screaming, and your caretaker has horns --------- hhmmmmmm. However, if you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior and turned your life around you will be going somewhere that is truly pure love. If I am wrong, then worms get me just like you but if I am right I live in love and you dona€™t. I just dona€™t know where people get their ideas from because the Bible tells it like I do. Also, it is also true that before Jesus came to the earth as a man, that all the pagan nations were defeated by Goda€™s people the Israelites.
Why ---- because the Israelites worshiped the only God there is and the pagans worshiped false ones. A PS:A  Hope youa€™re not on one of those planes where the Pilot is a follower of Christ when the Rapture comes. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
I was impressed by the many many friends who came to offer condolences and said kind things about her. To go through life with so many people that call themselves your family around you is a tribute to the love that is shown and radiates from you. Some are acquaintances, some good acquaintances, others are friends and still others are good friends. I think I need to add a new one that shows love beyond that of the latter a€“ it is family. Thought for the week:A  Happy Valentines Day !!!!!=============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop 2-22-2010. You see the fire trucks pull up and the fire men run from the trucks, get their ladders, hook up the hoses and then ------- sit down and take a coffee break.
Your company is told that there is a mother and two children screaming for help from the third floor and they are close to being consumed by the flames. You and your men run over to see what instructions he has but he presents all of you with some Coffee and doughnuts. All of us know of people, friends, and family that have not accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior and are not saved.
They are like the family in the house.A  Because of pride, fear, or some other human emotion, we either do not share the Word with them or are not persistent with it to get them saved.
The people we know then end up dying either naturally or prematurely in an accident and end up burning in the ever lasting flames of Hell. 18-20: And Jesus came and said to them, a€?All authority on heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. There were actually two letters that I have combined and edited to eliminate the womana€™s identity. It is offered here as another a€?building blocka€? about evangelizing and spreading Goda€™s will. I agree that we are all called to share the gospel with others and that we often fall short of that. The Holy Spirit is the one who draws them, ("No one can come to me unless the Father who sent Me draws him" John 6:44) convicts them and makes them see that they are sinners.
People are drawn to God in us when they see something about us that they dona€™t have and they are made thirsty for. But they all have heard the truth many times and they refuse to acknowledge that they are sinners in need of a rescue. My part is to pray for them, live my life for Jesus (let my light shine) and share the truths of the gospel when there is an opening to do so.
It took many years, but I am at peace knowing that if they die without knowing Jesus therefore spending eternity in hell, that it was their choice. Another interesting fact is that we have different witnessing styles and people respond to different styles of witnessing. But perfect love casts out fear" 1 John 4:18) To love others more than yourself and to know that without Christ they will spend all eternity separated from Him. When I go on mission trips, I pray for the hearts of the people that God is going to put onto my path and I pray that God would give me His eyes to see them as He sees them and His heart to love them as He loves them, and His words to speak to them. Although it is debated if they are actually God speaking, they are recognized by most as books that are still good to teach from. Still others like the book of Sirach which is used a lot by the Catholic church brings question into mind that it may have been eliminated by Martin Luther just as a statement to his rebellious nature within that church.
He even wanted to eliminate other books including the book of Revelation but, as history records, -- cooler minds prevailed. 60: Then all the people shouted and praised God, who saves those who put their trust in Him.
Someone had a dream that as the soldier drew back to hit Christ that he grabbed the soldiers arm.
As they talked and discussed, Jesus himself drew near and walked along with them;Mark 16, vs. The doors were locked, but Jesus came and stood among them and said, a€?Pease be with youa€?. A Jesus also appeared to 500 others, Saul (whom later became Paul), and to his disciples again when he rose up and ascended into Heaven. Since Biblical times the tradition that the Roman Emperor Domitian ordered that the Apostle John be executed by throwing him into a cauldron of boiling oil has been widely held.
