      I have recently done that. You don't even know that you are doing anything differently, other than the notice you get saying thank you. It's an easy thing, just click on that amazon smile link you posted, then go shopping at Amazon.

      During my 10 weeks of Radiation, it was down only twice. There was only about an hour delay. We were told we could either wait or reschedule for the next day. The next time it broke down we were told we could come back the next day or they could work us in at another facility later that day. Also I have been rerouted due to CT-scan problems. Fortunately my medical center has nearby facilities.

      Oh the first time it broke down; it broke down when I was sitting in the waiting room in the hospital gown obviously, I opted to wait.

      Yes mine did a few times. But each time I was in the machine and they got it working again. The last day it broke and I was in the machine and they had to manually pull me out. I didn't know whether I laugh or cry so I laughed. Since it was my last day I waited around and they got it fixed in time to have treatment before I had to leave for oher appointments. The doctor said they would wait for me or come back, but I didn't want them to have to stay late for me. So it all worked out with. They wanted to make my last day memorable.

      Thank you to all of you on the site that have served or are currently serving. We appreciate you! That goes for the families too, they have to sacrifice also during times of deployment.

      Thank you to all who have served or are serving! I hope you receive the gratitude and support for all that you have done and continue to do.

      My father served in World War II. A while back I posted this photo of him on the Pinboard:

      The photo was taken in Germany on May 29, 1945. My father (age 27), part of the "entertainment corps," is at the piano. The man holding the violin is Jascha Heifetz, whose "Hora Staccato" my father had rearranged for the accordion.

      Thank you all who served A member of my family has served in every war since the revolution . My mother's ancestors came from France to help the colonists and they liked the country so well they stayed. A great grand uncle served in the Civil War. A great uncle fought in WWI. My father and my uncle fought in WWII. There is the story of how they met up in Paris and had a rather rousing time sampling French wines (rather large samples as I understand) My brother served during the Viet Nam way but he was put in the Apollo program to pick up the astronauts when they splashed down. He also flew some covert missions in the Middle East My son served in Iraq.
