    Just give the trophy to Utilit99. The single worst poster this forearm has ever seen.

    Thanks all. The scan results are… good! There were 3 nodules back in early April: 11, 4, and 6mm. The 4 and 6mm are now gone, at least to the extent a CT can see it. The 11mm was classified as “stable.” Since the treatments started 6+ weeks after the previous scan, I’m thinking it had gotten larger in that time, so the current “stable” is actually a reduction in size. Regardless, the doctor was quite happy with the results, which indicate that the treatments are working. I need to keep in mind that “working” means somewhere between “managing” and “reducing” but most likely not “completely eliminating.” I’m not sure they’ll ever give me that status. And I’ll have fear every time I get a scan. But for now, I am not on the “6 months to live” list. I did have a very low white blood cell count, so they are skipping chemo this round (tomorrow) and just doing the immunotherapy. In three weeks we’ll go back to both, as it appears to be working. It’s typical to remember the bad news and forget the good, and I’ve certainly had small victories in this journey, but I think this is the first major good news I’ve gotten.

    She said: "As a matter of fact YES......but I've also had 9's and 10's."

    Why is it considered a negative for a person to evolve to become fully aware of social racial injustice? What is so troubling about a person choosing NOT to remain stuck in the outdated antiquated mindset of the stone ages? If you see one sided double standard BS, it should be called out regardless of race or status.

    Thank you guys so much for all the thoughts and prayers.Mrs Nzoner got sick in late October with Covid pneumonia and with her RA of 23 years it absolutely wrecked her lungs because her body could not fight everything..She was on a vent for 20 days then they tried a tracheotomy and she was on the vent that way another 11 days but wasn't getting any better.Of course there's a lot more to it one step forward two steps back but eventually she tired of fighting and a couple of days before she passed we had a beautiful moment in her room when I was able to finally read her lips and she asked for her Bible.She then had me read a section of Romans 8 to her that she had highlighted and that mentions that believers bodies will be redeemed. Yes,we're both believers in a creator and our hope lies not in this brief life here but an eternal home where there will be no more pain or tears and our spirits will have new bodies.That said I'm comforted knowing my wife is dancing on streets of gold and that I will one day see her again.As I put on FB earlier this will be her merriest Christmas yet celebrating with our Savior but she will be oh so missed here. You all have a blessed Christmas,hug your loved ones a little tighter because as God's Word says in James 4:13-15 Look here, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we are going to a certain town and will stay there a year. We will do business there and make a profit.” How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.”

    Pat Tillman and I are close to the same age and he did what most men wouldn't; Including myself. He was so moved / pissed at 9/11 that he quit his job and served America. I respect the hell out it and God Bless him and others like him. I refuse to let politics and the dumbassery of politicians over the past 19 years sway that view.

    I hate coaches like like this. Not because they run up the score, but because they keep kids on the bench when they could be playing. I have no problem when a team keeps running their system, so long as they do it with their 2nd and 3rd string guys so they get experience. Leaving your starters in is disrespectful to the other team and kids who don't see much PT on your own team.

    Here's the part youre missing. That little pea-sized unborn fetus is a person with the right to life. Being unborn doesn't mean sh1t to me. That clump of cells becomes a human and has the rights to their body too. And deserves the chance at life. At this point, women and men have lots of options for family planning. Focking use them.

    You should send them ALL back and try to figure out what happened in your life that made you gay enough to want to wear an Apple watch.

    Went to detox four months ago. Drinking 2/3 of vodka and a 12 pack a night caught up to me. One of the hardest things I ever have done was admitting myself voluntarily knowing I was going to have serious withdrawals and find out how much my body was doing. Haven’t had a single drop of the hard stuff in over four months. Go to AA meeting twice a week. I was ready to make a change. Best decision ever.

    No, I don't. I have, in teaching here, seen how culture affects things. My students are quite intelligent. I'm sure every bit as intelligent as students in the US or Europe. They are extremely good, even amazingly so, at anything that merely involves rote memorization and practice. Math, dance, etc. However, 70 some odd years of commie education has utterly destroyed any ability to think critically or any problem solving skills whatsoever from these people. It's comical at times. If the answer isn't right there to be memorized and copied, they simply shut down. Don't have a clue what to do. Adults as well as children. Similarly, in the African American community, there are cultural barriers to learning. Why do Asian American and white American students perform better in school... 1. Parents. Parents who give a fock. Parents who exist in a plural meaning of the word. Parents who aren't drug addicts. Parents who adequately feed and provide for the kids and actually supervise them. 2. The attitude toward education. Seems like the black community has a “if you try, you are a b!tch” mentality when it comes to school. A black student in America will face more pushback from his peers than any other race in America. And that's on the black community. No amount of money will ever fix that. No system will ever fix that. Kids are like computers... garbage in, garbage out. You want to know the true “white privilege?” Most white or asian people who succeed did so because their culture helped them do so. Most black people who succeed had to overcome theirs. Obviously that is much harder. Fortunately for black people, equality is coming! Not because they will lift themselves up, but because it seems like most white people are content to absorb that culture and join them at the bottom. So there's that I guess.

    If you think the leftist head's exploding and telling lie after lie for 4 years trying to impeach the president on everything he did is the same as the right having fun with this, I think you need to take a break from it all.
