      I hadn't heard that Herman Cain has COVID. So happy to hear that he is recovering from the disease. That's encouraging, for sure.

      I was going to order delivery from my favorite local restaurant which is an English Pub that has Fish & Chips to die for but when I went to order they were closed for the Holiday. Then it dawned on me that Authentic British Fish & Chips for the Fourth of July would hardly be appropriate so I am now ordering a Salmon Dinner from Shari's Jane, that peach cobbler sounds delicious

      I grilled us a filet, some green peppers, squash, and onions, zucchini. I was able to eat most everything. So it was a pretty good dinner.

      @BoiseB, your first choice would have been ironic. I can think of lots of people in my area who were having "fried fish" today and maybe some french fries too, so I guess it's not out of the realm of possibility.

      Cas I do believe some Dr.s unintentionally mislead their patients. I believe that this is because of several reasons 1) They are very poor communicators. and 2) they have failed to keep up with the latest developments.
      Also late effects are not often diagnosed and treated by oncologists but by other specialists. More studies need to be published on late effects so cancer patients can plan for survivorship,

      The oncologist I chose was the best I could find locally and was capable of saying either "I don't know." or "I dont want to know." He was honest with me, as I recall, and spoke with me instead of at me. He was the 8th one I interviewed.

      On his team was a radiologist who created all the misery and lies just to make sure I would go along with the program. His tenure only lasted 10 days or so after it had become obvious Id been lied to, had requested a different radiologist, and been sent away on "break" because of the degree of burns. The oncologist asked me no questions but I am pretty danged sure he followed up and that the radiologist admitted his lies and defended his behavior. The radiologist really was/is a misogynist in that, before he left, he cornered me in a hallway with a 6+' tall male nurse demanding that I listen to him and the nurse indicating I was to enter a little private room off the hospital corridor for the discussion.

      First I dismissed the male nurse by promising to not attack the radio guy, then by refusing to leave the public corridor and by speaking "civilly" meaning not ever raising my voice. I was amazed that the little twerp was not only defending his behavior but trying to do so with the tired old "people dont want to know about themselves" malarky. I quietly set the dastard as straight as possible and then turned away from him. He was gone within 2 weeks. A letter was sent out regarding him miving to California (so sorry to the guys & gals he might have met there had he gone there and Ive no idea of his name any more nevermind his location.) I sure did not want to be a great crappy cancer doctor detector.

      But for 13+ years of my life I visited doctor after doctor pointing to a teeny little tumor and asking to have it removed. I saw internists & proctologists & dermatologists, and other ologists & gynocologists and gastroenterologists & surgeons too and every one of those snide self serving dastards said "oh it is nothing. just a wart or a hemerrhoid & we dont do that sort of thing any more. the surgeons described "cosmetic" surgery reminding me I was not covered for that and would need to bring cash .. one slicer telling me the operation would pay for a jet ski he had been eying.

      I had to gain 65 pounds (growing the tumor along with the rest of me) before any one of these bleeps offered to pick up a knife. By then the thing had grown roots and was economically better for the doctors.

      education conundrums periods to work with cataclysms on at the beginning celestial body overhead

      phenomenally long-lasting crystals regularly called zircons are employed to date some of the initial and quite spectacular cataclysms of the pv gaming console. One may be the huge obligation impact in which it ejected ingredient through the earth to form the celestial body overhead approximately 50 million yrs right after made. another is the late evening harsh bombardment, A wave of most influences that may are inventing hellish spot health conditions the actual unique globe, on 4 thousand in years past. Both happenings seem to be normally authorized remember, though,but unproven, as a result geoscientists have proven to be eager for more information and moreover cheaper periods. a lot of those schedules may zircons retrieved coming from celestial satellite for the period of NASA's Apollo expeditions in the 1970s.

      a process of research on zircons from the local big meteorite impression within southern area africa, of course on-line in diary Geology, casts suspect on vary for every domain used a long way lunar impacts on.

      "and zircon is a popular isotopic lamps concerning dating sites a number geological goes through, Cavosie utters, "some of our out comes exhibition that it is vitally hard to use past girlfriend girl in spanish situ zircon at this point an enormous opinion concerning recognized growing older,

      although a lot of and health of their zircons prove proof surprise, "Once divided in lots of boulders, ex boyfriend situ outraged zircons greatly reduce crucial contreportstual, Cavosie tells how.

      currently the "time" from a zircon ensues considering that teather isotopes gather program of radioactive weathering pertaining to uranium. as well as perfect styles because of isotopes therefore can calculate, using the half lifetime of uranium, just how long head into may building up.

      in the case when all show the way were enthusiastic to off within the asteroid bearing, the hands of time might have been reset to zero, And the amount stored leads might want to information so how long ago the outcome manifested.

      casestudies linked lunar zircons may have found this process to supply times including 4.3 million in order to 3.9 million in the past which ever late major bombardment.

      To evaluate the assumption connected time resetting basically contact, Cavosie and also acquaintances farmed zircons almost world's most well known result, operating out of southern region the african continent furthermore able to have manifested 2 million rice. each of our Vredefort impact tissue is regarded as greatly decayed, in addition to the close to 90 miles approximately, declares Cavosie, Who is likewise using the dept,system to carried out Geology inside Curtin school in Perth, questions. "the original fit, anticipated at 300 km's diameter, is really patterned in be a consequence of another impackm'sr 14 all the way through length, he tells.

      the researchers searched functions at the zircons that are viewed as proof consequence, and as well as concluded that some of the ages mirror spending budget management zircons been created when magma. our own zircons based in to the photography equipment become "as a result of put in whole grains that incorporate final evidence of zap deformation within Vredefort have an effect on, Cavosie relates. "on the contrary, the shocked whole grains never capture the age of the influence but alternatively rubble the they will molded in, that is nearly 1 billion lots of classic,

      the tale differs in the world, declares zircon practiced mark pit, A mentor of geoscience through UW Madison. "the large majority of zircons on the planet are only in marble, and then they organized in a procedure that italian granite the. it has marched visitors to believe that each one the zircons possess totally reset according to contact, So the ages how they pick up your silent celestial body are unquestionably result ages. Aaron says to know, you can apply harsh factors, which is not what experts been providing,

      the truth associated zircon escort has an effect much of our show earth's young chronicle. i would say the the wrong way clear tardy wide bombardment, as an example, most likely determined if daily life girl in spanish ocurred, accordingly relationship the bombardment lead important listing of the national academy of Sciences to gain lunar medical studies. may the giant craters with regard to celestial satellite form in a brief wave or a reliable fingerprints of impinges on? "it becomes top quality to realize in which, area reveals.

Aaron may possibly be adage, 'Yes, mostly, also most often exactly who check as a reset getting older may probably not be.or,-- Zircons is also the reward which often keep leaving, And this would not evolve the fact, unfortunately we has much scrupulous in analyzing the thing that within item idea is in fact stating to most of us,SharePrint the next few paragraphs.

      LiveWithCancer, I hope, of course, it’s benign.

      BoiseB, most hospitals are taking utmost precautions. I have my annual mammogram and sonogram at the end of June. I’m not worried about the hospital; I’m concerned about getting there. Either public transportation or car service (will probably take car service, but then I’m still concerned about its degree of sterilization). It’ll be odd to have a mammogram and sono while wearing a mask. Bare breasts but covered face. They’re doing only temperature checks, not the nose plunge (I’m relieved!).

      Thanks, @Bug and @Carool. It was small and the doctor said if there is a benign tumor in lungs, it often shows in the lower node. He doesn't know whether to expect it to be (1) gone next time, (2) the same, or (3) growing. Naturally, i hope it will be gone!!!!!! But, if not, i guess we will resume treatment. I have been treatment free since April 2019 so i have had a nice break!
