Coming on the heels of finding a new home for Morstan, a little good news for The Blonde. She went to see her regular GP and he had a look at the sore on her chest the cancer center guy said was primary cell melanoma.

"I'll be very surprised if that's cancer", was his judgment.

The first time she's breathed a little easier in a month. Biopsy in two weeks.

JAL said...

ed. and The Blonde -- you have my best wishes for good news in 2 weeks.

Prof. and Meade,

What's that song--Star Land Vocal Band? Hell, I'm off to Mass.

I think Hillary may be getting sabotaged at the State Department?

"Getting together"? Sure, that might sound INNOCENT, but it's not. Pretty soon you've FORGOTTEN about the FREE market principles upon WHICH this country was founded. "Getting together" is the talk of COMMUNIST SOCIALISTS. This country was FOUNDED by those who rejected such collectivistical NOTIONS and who REALIZED even then that what's best for Koch INDUSTRIES was best for ALL.

Irene said...

edutcher, that is great news. See? Crossed paws *do* work.

C Black said...

Day of the Trilliums! Oh no! Oh. Wait. Never mind.

LoneWacko...be free to associate all day long, but keep your government disguised hands off the privare property of other free men and women under the myth of building a utopia of wind mills and subsitance farmers and calling it change to help people. Utopia by force has been tried 20+ times since Karl Marx envisioned it and it has stolen, killed and destroyed the lives of every one of the people who surrendered to the Party Line. Experience proved that as soon as there was no greater pay for working than not working, then no more work was done and the Beloved leader declared a crisis and sent in his thugs and National Police to start the killing in order to free up more property to steal. Next came a necessary invading of the weak neighboring countries to steal everything there. Only 70 years ago Uncle Joe picked clean his half of Poland, sent the Polish leaders to the Katyn forest, and gave his ally Adolph the other half to rape and build his Camps in for the Israeli's grandparents final strangled by poison gas breaths of life. So I wouldn't make snide comments about being called what you are so proud of being a supporter of.

Oh, and, for what it's worth Eduteacher, Good Luck! My sister went through something like that that. I don't pray regularly so I won't be like most news anchors and hypocritically say "you will be in 'our' prayers"**. But, still, good luck!

**Really. Does ANY-one believe them when they say stuff like that? Bugs me, but I laugh it off.

Thank you, all (I'd say ladies, but I don't know C Black's gender). She got hit with the original news at a bad time and she's been understandably shaken since.

PS Hagar, consider this.

Irene said...

Here's a wacky item.

In Lithuania (formerly "LTSR"), a theme park based on Soviet times has opened.

Fred4Pres said...

Red triliums are interesting.

Hagar said...

That and the "overcharge" button, etc.

Either they are doing a number on her, or she has isolated herself and relies on her own people or the White House's.

Remember when it was cool to be an entrepreneur and uncool to be a government worker?

Remember when it was cool to have a defined contribution retirement plan and uncool to have a defined benefit plan?

Remember when getting rich meant creating something new and revoluationary in the free market and not being a powerful lobbyist?

Our thirteen trillium dollar deficit...

Irene said...

Uh oh.

Pogo said...

I think, and this is just my opinion mind you, that if the movie Letters to Juliet had just had only two or three more romance clichés in it, it would have been the perfect romantic movie.

So close!!

It's killing me that I'm about to apply for a federal job since no one else is hiring. The shit keeps me up at night. I've put it off as long as I can.

Hopefully it will only be for a couple of years until I can get a small business up and running.

We forgive you GMay.

(You truly have our sympathy. And will have our tax dollars, in your case we know you'll earn them, because you carry the correct amount of guilt.)

Re trillium: America was crushed by the glaciers in geologically recent times. One consequence was that there were very few native earthworms left after a few thousand years of mile-thick ice. Trillium and other native plants, especially orchids, depend on a layer of half-rotted leaves called duff. Imported earthworms, including such familiar worms as nightcrawlers, now devour the fallen leaves. Some native plants are becoming scarce as a consequence of North America becoming more normal.

"Uh oh."


I noticed the "Jindal for President" sign on the bottom left.
He is part of the treasonous plot to negate the Constitution. Congress is trying to pave the way for another ineligible candidate. Jindal is not a Natural Born Citizen either (like Obama- who was born a dual citizen of Britain, and is thus ineligible).
Jindal's parents were not citizens when Jindal was born in La. He was born a dual citizen of India, and can NEVER be considered Natural Born.

Beth said...

Mick, I'd love it if that were true, because I'm no fan of Jindal, overall, but you're flat out insane. I realize it's futile arguing with you, but I did need to say at least that.

Has Ann been invited to Rush Limbaugh's wedding today?

Arianna Huffinton, running her silly head on ABC, has indpired me.

A plan:

1. Joe Biden resigns.
2. Obama nominates, and the Congress confirms, George W. Bush as his replacement.
3. Obama resigns.
4. George W. Bush takes the Oath.
5. Bush nominates, and Congress confirms, Richard Cheney as Vice-President.

I mean, if they are going to be blamed for everything, might as well give them back the responsibility.

You refer to the Queen's birthday card? Better early than late, I would think?

But then I began wondering, does the State Dept send birthday cards to all heads of state on behalf of the President?

For example: President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President Robert Mugabe, President Kim Il-sung, King Abdullah, President Hugo Chávez, President Raúl Castro

Does Hugo reciprocate with 'Happy Birthday Comrade'?

And of course you are wrong. Where does it say that anyone born in America, regardless of parentage, is a Natural Born Citizen, (eligible to be POTUS)? No One here has answered that question (hint: the answer is Nowhere).
I can give you multiple cites (including SCOTUS cases and founding father's definitions) that prove that Natural Born Citizens are born in a country of parents who are it's citizens. That is the only definition that fits with the intended purpose, which is to prevent foreign influence. How could someone born a dual citizen (like Obama-British, or Jindal-Indian), be a Natural Born Citizen?

You can't argue with me because you don't know enough, and you don't wish to learn.
