That's a pitty. Have you tried the capsules, maybe they won't affect you badly?

On the news front: A 90+ American/Japanese veteran of WWII was on his death bed and his last act was to cast his absentee ballot. He then passed away peacefully.

Yesterday I made sure they scheduled my surgery on November 6th so that I could go downstairs to cast my ballot before I head out the door for my eye surgery.

Two major acts by two minor cast members of today's society.

Just a reminder of how important our vote is in every electrion. Local primary or national.

Stirling just got a call from the doctor's office. The MRI is clean!
I was more than a little worried. He had the MRI because the CT scan showed a spot on his brain. I didn't tell him how worried I was. I didn't want to make him worry more than he already was doing.

Thanks Snip. Yes, we are very relieved. Stirling posted it in his Facebook status and a friend posted this:
