  1. Well it's been an interesting 6 months. Today (Christmas Eve) marks the 30 month point since my wife's passing. Medically I think I'm doing good. In July routine blood work as part of the post kidney cancer surveillance program my iron and hemoglobin were low. The Oncologist sent me back to my GI doc for testing to see if there was any microscopic GI bleeds. Also her sent me to an Endocrinologist for evaluation of a few nodules they saw on my thyroid. He also had me start taking iron supplements. So in the months of August-October I got to enjoy the following procedures: Th

  3. We have people that complain about this forum on a daily basis and some of those days I’m the one complaining. But most of us keep coming back because it’s a unique little part of the internet where we share our lives and commiserate with people that we mostly don’t know because they are going through similar things in life and life is meant to be shared. I sit here reading this story about a brave man I’ve never met and probably will never meet. Someone I respect as being smarter and more patient than I’ll ever be. And I sit here in tears typing this, I realize there’s nothing I can

  5. Folks like this were ready recipients of 8+ years of bashing Obama from everything from lapel pins, to suit colors, to being a muslim, a socialist, palling around with terrorists. They were told his wife was unamerican, that he was a race-baiter. Told his healthcare policies would create death panels to kill old people. He took blame from conservatives for bailing out wall street and saving our economy, following on the work GWB had done. The GOP, Fox News, and the conservative media as a whole were lying about him for almost a decade, daily, and vehemently. This kind of brainwashi

  9. You didn’t post what he said next - Donald Trump, answering phone call from 7-year-old on Christmas Eve: "Are you still a believer in Santa? Because at seven it's marginal, right?” —— Theres nothing he won’t destroy.

  10. I mean whoever the nominee is, to fall for misinformation amplified by forces who aim to divide and discourage voting for the Democratic nominee. The “Bernie voters are upset” about a guy not even a candidate yet smacks of more of the same BS from 2016; political monkey wrenching. I simply don’t believe real progressives are hand wringing over the progessive purity of two guys who haven’t announced yet, and completely believe stuff like this is more of the same BS that worked to help a criminal become president.

  11. This policy should have been priced into the market. When he was nominated all reports claimed he he wanted to normalize (increase) interest rates. The talking heads on CNBC (especially, but not exclusively, the right wing commentaters) advocated higher interest rates. From what I remember of my long ago economics classes when you have full employment it's a good idea to raise historically low rates to prevent inflation. Ten year treasury rates are under 3% so it's not like the rate rise is excessive. It seems to me the real problem was the tax cut for the rich that encouraged the stoc

Let me know if I can be of any help or if you need some advice. the ALS association was an amazing group that assisted our family. If there is a chapter near you Id recommend connecting with them if you already havent.

  13. For those who celebrate the holiday, a very Merry Christmas... and to those who do not, may today provide an opportunity to spend time with those for whom you care the most. To all, a happy, safe and healthy new year. May we be bonded by our common humanity, and share in newfound peace and prosperity. This family will never be forgotten. I hope this holiday season has shone a light on the better side of humanity. May next year we emerge a greater people and a more just world.

  14. The issue isn't that the banks were bailed out or that capital was poured into the system -- the alternative was nightmarish. The issue is that no one went to jail and that Glass-Steagall and other related regulations weren't reimplemented.

  15. O'Rourke seems to have a real talent for uniting people. I'm not saying he's the only one. There may be others who are just as effective. But I think a uniter is what we need, and he fits the bill. Maybe Klobuchar or someone else would be even better. I don't know. But I'd be happy with O'Rourke as the next President.

  16. I have to say it’s pretty amazing how strongly you seem to be taking this. Most of us would be a sobbing lump in a corner. Good on you, man. You should think about compiling all of this and publishing it some day. All the best to you, and looking forward to reading the rest and getting caught up. Thoughts and prayers and hope you make the most of the holidays with your family.

  17. I actually asked my father in law this very question (what would you need to see to no longer support trump?) two days ago. I’ve referenced my father in law before. He’s a genuinely good person. Displays no real attributes of racism or anything (he will sometimes say some culturally insensitive things that don’t appear to be intentional). Had even sat down with one of my law partners who is a very well spoken and learned liberal and was able to respectfully talk politics over a beer. In other words, he’s my perfect example of a good, rational, intelligent person that support trump. And he’s a

  18. Not a believer, but my family is, and so I wish you and your loved ones the best of times. That goes for everyone here. Also we needn’t put aside our differences for just one day. Most of us have far more in common than we disagree on, and we should try to remember that always.

I smoked some ribs, boiled some Key West pink shrimp, cut up some cheeses and Italian dry salami and prosciutto, and a neighbor brought us some Cuban sammiches and softball sized deviled crabs from a local joint...I love doing these kind of snack trays on holiday eves.

  23. Thank you for sharing your journey through this diagnosis. The FFA can be a great place for support, information and even humor. A place where you can share your vulnerability while trying to remain strong for those around you IRL. We are here for you Randall. Lean on us.

  24. Ive definitely had a few sobbing episodes. Mostly thinking about my kids. I remember probably an hour straight last week of repeatedly wailing “I don’t know what to do, I don’t know what to do. I feel so bad for them” My wife has gotten me through those, staying calm and holding me and talking me through it. She running the whole operation, arranging my appointments, talking to Blue Cross, figuring out who gets told and when. She’s getting a really nice necklace with an anchor pendant for Christmas. p and s she just walked by as I was posting this. I told her I was posting abo

  25. Sigh. At the risk of sounding uncharitable, I have to vent. First, my family gets together with wife’s sisters (3) every Christmas (none are currently married). I have a tough time with them in general-loud, hard of hearing, it’s always been a whirlwind of chaos and noise that just really stresses me out. Impossible to get a word in edge-wise ever. We’ve always got together on x-mas eve for like the last 20 years. One sister had to work x-mas eve this year so we switched to x-mas (which is when my family had always done our thing). Last minute same sister tells us she just took a sh

  27. Thanks, simey. Sort of elated by the whole process and championship. Even took screen caps of Yahoo with the win. I loved this thing. Shout out to @Northern Voice and @Eephus for running this and giving it its direction and guidance. Shout out to all the participants. Happy holidays to all as well. Like I told Nick, may they be full of love and laughter for you all.

  30. Happy non-specific winter holiday wishes to all of you. I got rid of cable the other day and on the way to saving $1,600 next year. My gift this year is a new mailbox post (HOA strongly recommended it) and it has to go in today. We made a monster lasagna and beer and wine are in abundance. Looking forward to going into the office tomorrow and not doing jack squat. 🎄

  31. Granted best is always subjective but he’s elite without question. The only back in the league that compares (and might be better) is Barkley. TG3 is so smooth and makes it look easy so it’s deceptive. And as for the stats posted about C.J. last night I refer you to C.J.’s reply on Twitter https://mobile.twitter.com/cjandersonb22/status/1077049071536300032

I updated it with a new post detailing his former crowdfunds and stealing all the money. I also have an hour long recorded audio of him groveling to me for forgiveness and saying he’d drop his lawsuit. He walked away with nothing, lol

  37. It never fails to make me laugh. The same group of people that bash this place as an echo chamber, that we’re all sheep to the fake news media and that we should all wise up and think for ourselves are the very first group to parrot the Trump talking points. It would be unbelievable if it weren’t so comical.

  41. I read this late last night, and went into deep thought about you. When I looked back at the clock, almost an hour had gone by. I decided to go to bed, and post today. You were in my dreams last night, and all I can remember is that a bunch of people were at a tavern in Rhode Island hanging with you, Good Vibrations was playing in the background, and although I have never met you in person, you were wearing a Duke shirt and you looked like Tom Selleck. Randall, I am really sorry about your diagnosis. I have always liked you a lot, and I think highly of you. It takes courage to share with us s

  42. All of my thoughts, prayers, and postive vibes to you and your entire family through this battle. Also--I want to thank you for sharing your story. I know for a fact that one of my personal weaknesses is getting upset and complaining about stuff that is pretty meaningless and material in the big scheme of things. Your story has already sparked me to self reflect to realize that I need to not worry about what I don't have--and rather I need to be grateful for the great things that I do have. Your story has already touched one life and I truly hope that you continue to update this thread s

(blows out) i quit my job last month at purr and woofs because it so stressful and making me crazy. a last straw came when me and jimmy was at wendys and I hear a woman say to a child "don't eat like a pig". it was instinct that I walk right over and tell her she can't say that because it is disrespectful to pigs that are reading. teh lady just look at me and that's when jimmy come over and say hey studs, this aint purr and woofs. this is wendys. I was so embarrassed. I apologize and say to jimmy let's just take our large frostys home today. it's been about 5 weeks and i couldnt be happie
