In my neck of the woods, the traditional new year luck meal is pork and sauerkraut. It never seemed to help my luck but it sure was delicious.

Western PA typical dish. Never did much for my luck either.

Must be my German-Czech roots: I regularly get packages of bratwurst and cook them up for the fridge. Then I make hot bratwurst sandwiches with mustard and sauerkraut. You wouldn't think of this as a common Southern California thing, but somebody is buying all those brats they have in the store.

Funny thing is I can't remember my parents ever serving sausages as a kid. I do remember the frozen breaded veal popsicles. God, those were awful.

Had cataract surgery today one the first eye. Pretty easy and opted not to be put out. Vision is slowly returning.

Thankful to those who created and maintained Medicare.

So at what distance is your vision going to be fixed when you are done? I have a friend who had cataract surgery and the curve of the eyeball was fine for distance vision with no lens at all! He used to wear thick glasses but now he just uses reading glasses when he wants near vision.

You might just get away with 20 dollar cheapos at the drugstore.
If you're lucky.
I know I get away with them. I use them for close viewfinder work on camera and that's about it. I keep a pair of my single vision glasses in the car for driving and another identical pair in the bedroom for watching TV. For the computer I don't need anything, but of course I have 3 very large monitors and a 42 inch TV set for evaluation use.
But I didn't need anything even when I was using 24's.

You probably need prescription reading glasses if you have to deal with astigmatism. I'm lucky. I used to have 20/30 and 20/50 distance and I could see close up. Now my distance vision is much better and I need $2 reading glasses from the 99 cent store for close up and the computer. I've always passed the DMV test without glasses.
