Hey all,

My name is Jim from (Concord, NH) and I'm disabled with a back injury since 1989. Have had several surgery's and am still in pain 24/7-365. Just went in for another MRI and have been told the disc above the one they last fixed has blown out and has stenosis. So first the injections to reduce the pain for a little while but eventually I'm sure will need another for a fusion there also. SUCKS!!!!

Well I have been having problems with my Dell Dimension and happened across this site and after signing in and looking over all the different areas of help with PC's I thought it would be a good place to bookmark.

I'm 50 but (except for my back) feel 30, own a Harley Davidson Fat Boy for my morning drives to have my "Green Tea". Sure miss my coffee though but it's better for ya. Wish I was able to ride the Fat Boy more than 10 miles every once in a while to tea but it helps keep my spirit up anyway.

I also own a German Shepherd Dog that was 15 months yesterday (10/23/06), his father is the Stud for all the NH State Police Dogs!! He's amazing and so smart!! I had owned an Akita (Japanese Breed) that I thought was one of the smartest dogs around but I'm thinking maybe this Shepherd "Harley" is gaining on her. He's surely a protector of me and keep close eyes on me when out or if someone comes over. He also scared some of those people that come around with the Watchtower magazines and try to convert you to their religion. :thumbsup: "Hope no one take offense to that" but they just don't seem to give up once you've opened the door to them. So he takes care of those kinds of visitors. :flowers:

Well, guess that's about it for me. If anyone wants to e-mail me for any questions about anything I've written, (ie. the Harley, the Akita, the Shepherd, the disability (back injury) I'd be happy to answer any questions.)

Otherwise thanks for having me in the group here, I'm sure hoping once I find the right categorie I will be able to post my problem and get some help getting my PC going. "I think I hate Dell"!!! :trumpet:

Hi from Germany Harley: We are retired and split our time between here and Northwestern Connecticut. Just wanted to say that we are dog lovers and sit an Akita when we are back home. Great dogs....Too bad you have that Harley. Now, if it were a Goldwing that would be different...although I dont even have one of those. Welcome to the site.Jerry...jerlor@t-online.de

Welcome to BC!
Just post in the forum that seems to you to fit the best; if there is a better forum that you might not be aware of, a moderator will move it for you so you get faster replies.
Last year, I moved from downtown Chicago to the wilds of Indiana, and somehow now have three stray cats and just last month, a stray dog of the ever-hunting-with-her-nose-snorting-at-the-ground variety.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Thanks everyone for the welcome.

Jerlor1, Thanks and the Nikki my Akita was one of the nicest dogs but didn't like other animals to much, but I knew that going in when I bought her. I did a lot of reading before getting her to make sure it would be a dog for me. I now have a German Shepherd which I said in my original e-mail, his father is direct from West Germany so he's the smaller sleeker type of GSD. Unlike the American syle of German Shepherd Dog which is now bred for size rather than health and smarts. He's starting to get a little testy, trying to see if he can be the Alpha but he better think twice on that one. He's a good dog but needs some interatcion with other dogs which I'm going to try and get into some classes for training which will help him being around other dogs (I hope). He's good on loose leash with me as far as heeling, sit, come, down et..... but off leash he knows I have no control over him unless I have something (treat) he wants. LOL!! Damn smart dogs.

I have relatives in Conn. that I don't see much do to my back problems but do get to go down maybe once a year to the Indian Casino's they have down there. I enjoy playing the slots but it really wears me out to go down there. It's very tiring and stressful on my back, especially after 9 surgerys. And one more may be on the way if the injections I'm scheduled to get in Dec. doesn't help.

Well thanks again for the warm welcome and hope i can get some help for tihs damn PC, I'd hate to chuck it and I'm getting close to it. :thumbsup:

Take care, Jim (Concord, NH)
