That funny that you should ask that question. I used to have a tree business, I longer do that, this is one of the reasons for my now joint healing campaign BTW. I used to pick up 300 pound logs and throw them into a truck. The other is probably more so from not eating right and regular food. I also almost died more than a few times as well, but I never got hurt. The tree business gave me a tremendous amount of rigging experience as well as what will break a climbing rope. One time my locking biner came open and I fell out of the tree going down upside down. I prayed "God Help Me, I am going to hit that fence". Miraculously my chainsaw on a leash on the stihl break away ring got caught over a branch on the way down.

In my 30 years of doing logging firewood and tree removal [STARTING IN NEW PALTZ and eventually moving to Northern NJ] because of Jim Munson, neither I nor anyone of my workers ever had a single tick encounter!

We were outside every day all day. I have had tick encounters in the cliff on Ramapo off 17 a few years ago off some blades of grass and in the meadows here in Kearny I have seen them, but I caught them before they got me. Sometimes you can see them hanging up on the end of long blades of grass, holding on by one claw and reaching out for you with the other! A hideous sight!

The only time I was ever bit was in Langhorne PA in a field. I pulled the tick out of the back of my head just into my hairline. Parts of it's teeth remained there imbedded there many years until it designated.

Last word on this thread. I have been patiently trying to help.

1. thats Duesberg, if he's your hero, then at least spell his name correctly.

2. Feel free to offer an explanation of why combination antiretroviral therapies have dramatically reduced deaths from this disease all across the world. On second thoughts, don't. You have no clue what you're talking about.

3. You have no clue what you're talking about.

i wanted to add this image so you can see what's happening:

The threat of ticks and Lyme disease has increased dramatically since the 1990s. From https://naturalunseenhazards.wordpress.com/tag/southern-tick-associated-rash-illness/

Joshua has joint pain this morning and a 1/4 red spot is starting to show.

This shows that most probably he has contracted lime disease from the Millbrook Tick. I am going to take him to get doxy shots now. Thanks so much for all your help!!!

This is where he is going. They insist on tests first. Will cost around $600.00 to start. They are 2 hours away but they seem to know more then other doctors. They specialize in ticks.

I don't believe anyone is still suggesting a hot matchhead to remove a black legged tick. That's "conventional wisdom" from a generation ago. Ditto covering it with clear nail polish.

So, Don has deleted or severly edited his the initial posts regarding his original post.

He's left us with the history of his tree business and an apparent interest in Snooky.

Has this not been a most edifying week? crazy
