I spent New Year's Eve at the Midnight Special party at WFMT - left home about 6:15 PM, got some groceries & ate some supper, then to the station by 8:30, greeted guests from 9 > 9:55, then live folk singers/musicians until 1:15. All the revele... Read more

A month ago I had a squamous cell carcinoma removed. It got horribly infected and took three different antibiotics to get under control. Improving, but when I am still/not moving around, I must keep the leg elevated, which is hard on my lower ba... Read more
