Re: O/T Stupid corny jokes for Freckles

If you can pass this test, you too will be eligible to launch nuclear armed ballistic missiles. No cheating. I'm not sure where we should mail finished tests or results.

Re: Fair?

Let us remember the basic thrust of this thread is "how come we all got heart disease and is that fair." Now let us reflect, and heaven help me here, this is NOT POLITICAL, on the President's recent annual physical where it was reported our 72 year old President does not exercise, is clearly overwei...

Re: Fair?

how do those things make you more worthy than those who weren't as fortunate? I've given this some further thought. You need to subscribe to Ancestry.com (chill Bob, not an endorsement) or similar. In my case I'm certain I am still here because my great grandfather did not grab someone's ass in a p...

As you mentioned others, I think perhaps you need to add a little perspective to where in this life you actually fit.

Re: Interesting thoughts

they didn' seem the least concerned about what may have been another MI on the way there. I'm spit-balling here, but maybe they figure your next MI is definitely gonna be your last MI so if you're walking in, it wasn't an MI. As for the "dramatic change in personality" realize tis the season for th...

Re: New to ICD recommendations

I am not going to be my usual nice self here. Read the following at your own risk. I am reading both very positive and very negative views about living with an ICD Let us get something out of the way. "Living with an ICD" just maybe the dumbest sentence in the English language and considering how mu...

Re: o/t wheres Jim & sparkey

Sorry to hear about the prostate, but as you've intimated, if you're a male and you're around long enough you'll get prostate cancer. Can you share why the biopsy in the first place? My 68 year old GP had prostate a few years ago. In his case, he was quite adamant about having "DaVinci do the surger...

Re: ICD Removal

Get a grip and stop making excuses, Mommy and Daddy aren't going to be around forever to babysit and coddle you.

Re: ICD Removal

What kind of career are you in? If your ICD has not gone off, has not prevented you from badminton or mountain climbing, I'm kind of lost as to your complaint. Is it the extra 5 oz of metal buried in your chest? And if you insist on removal, why remove it, turn it OFF. No surgery, no infection chanc...

Re: Anyone Yet Get DNA Testing Done?

Oddly enough, was just talking to a friend and she was telling me she actually bought something on Black Friday. She bought the AncestryDNA kit or something like that. Her version though does not include info on some 'predictive' factors for Parkinson's or Alzheimer's, etc. She said she didn't or wo...

Re: Anyone Yet Get DNA Testing Done?

Perhaps I need to clarify (I thought I'd only have to do this if ROBO was around during the weekend):
So has anyone actually gone so far and actually bought a test kit and gotten a result?

Now does ANYONE have a clue how I can easily PM this message to KansasAl ?
