    Nurk, would it be possible to do the radiation in a hospital near you? I mean, you would still be treated at the Cleaveland Clinic, but maybe they would allow the radiation treatments to be performed at a local hospital.

    Oh, dear. Sorry about that. My dad was diagnosed with Parkinson's in his early 59's. He had it for 25 years. As for the haircutting thing, I've done it. With disastrous results. Even with steady hands, I don't recommend cutting your own hair. __________________________________________________________ We're gaining about 3 minutes of daylight every day!

    Cutting the cable

    If there is one bill I would LOVE to eliminate it is our Xfinity bill. I loathe that company. However, I'm a news addict, as well as a PBS fan. Also, somewhere, somehow, I became an old TV western fan. The STARZ ENCORE Western channel is on an upgraded tier. Natch!

    Stay Warm to those in Midwest/Northern America

    It was minus seventeen degrees this morning in Champaign, Il...with a "real feel" temperature of minus forty-nine degrees. Why the hell do I live here?

    Automation taking over jobs

    Is this thread 200+ years too late? The Industrial Revolution was a double-edged sword, but you can't hold back progress. You just have to find ways to make it work FOR and WITH humanity and the environment, rather than against them. (I admit I didn't read this entire thread.)

    Coroner's Report/Petty Family Update

    You can view his updated death certificate online. There is no mention of cancer.

    Oh, Christ! It also looks like he has a very wonky right arm. That's just not right at all.

    I was curious, too. But we'll likely never know.

    Maybe I'm showing my age, but I could swear that 80% of the songs performed sounded pretty much all the same.
