Re: O/T For my pals following my husband's lymphoma

That is an amazing turn around! Congrats to both, and I am sure your better half will emerge healthy and mellowed after this. And good luck with your scan!

Re: fetenol patch rash

I had a mild reaction like that when I was using it. It is likely the glue they use. You might try putting them on a different place each time, try a different brand (there are generic and brand name formulation)s and you can try a hydrocortisone cream before applying the patch. It is a good form of...

Re: BrownBagger Update

Good news, glad to hear it. And I do think veggies are a better way to pay for cancer treatment. Maybe the next component for Obama care?

Re: Discussions about Death

I have thought much on these matters, especially of course as my own time is coming near. I do not believe there will be any kind of continued, sentient life after death. Once the body dies, once the last synapse stops firing I think it will all end. I just don't see that it can be any different. I ...

Re: Life insurance--read the fine print !!

What an awful, inhumane predicament. I would try to discuss things with your insurance broker (the guy who sold you the insurance) to see if anything can be done. Insurance companies rely on these brokers for their business, so sometimes they have some influence. But that seems unlikely. Have a tax ...

Re: When facing death do extramarital affairs come to mind?

One night stands, affairs, promiscuity, escorts, pornography even, it all comes from the same place: The basic human desire, need, not to be alone in this world. Cancer and dying take you to some very lonely places, and even the most committed caregiver cannot go there with you. The thought of dying...

Re: watching the World Cup...

You ladies make me smile. I thought chemo was supposed to knock out your ovaries???? Congrats Maia, but how close was that! And I love the Ghana result. If you go to those countries you will see that all those boys (not the girls) play football all the time. They walk to school barefoot, on a dirt t...

Re: watching the World Cup...

All of that is true, and it is a shame. Trouble is, football just is not an American game. There is only a limited fan base. Most football fans in the US are immigrant based, so they will support their country of origin, be interested in the league of their home country, all of which you can see on ...

Re: watching the World Cup...

The big European teams (ie the leading teams in UK, Spain, Germany and Italy) make a huge amount of money (but almost all are still run at a loss). The biggest source of income is not so much the fans watching the games, it is TV rights, merchandizing, doing well in the championship league (the deep...

Re: watching the World Cup...

Van Persie's diving header after Daley Blind's pass was a thing of beauty. An old enemy destroyed, an ancient wrong made right. And Maia, if we meet in the final, we'll have to figure out a way to watch it together. Deal. But I'm still patiently waiting for someone to get certain haircut, mister......

Re: watching the World Cup...

I feel sorry for the socceroos up next. But no mercy - they just beat us in the hockey world cup final. Marc, I can't associate myself with Australia on a sporting level as I grew up in NZ where they were, and will always be, the enemy thus even though I am citizen, have the passport and have devel...
