    First let me say thanks for the congrats on my NED!  I am thrilled and will certainly be planning a summer trip with my family.

    Second, hmm…how do I go about saying this?  Shame on you for your blog about your insurance company finding a more cost effective route for your radiation treatments by sending you to the crew in Japan!!!  Now, having said that, thanks for making me snort coffee out my nose and all over my keyboard when I laughed out loud at the comment!  Shame on us both!

    Now, about the music.  I feel honored, never had a song written in my honor before!  I don't know if you are up to challenge though.  Let me explain…I have learned,  while reading your blog and your musical choices,  that we are either separated by a "few" years or have, clearly, different opinions on music.  Don't get me wrong (don't want to blow my chances of getting a song!) – I can certainly appreciate your talent but would love to see what you can do with the "Bee Gees", "Maroon 5", "Journey" – oh screw it, I don't know…just do your thing, I'm sure I'll love it!

    Seriously though, keep on blogging – you got me through a very anxious week!

      Hi Laurie, glad you enjoyed my bad taste in the radiation joke.  I may have to go to confession for that one, but I couldn't resist poking my insurance company since we've gone several rounds in arguing about preexisting condition coverage denials.  You've busted me on my musical tastes, as I'm a boomer member of the Woodstock Generation who's frozen in the classic rock era.  But I'll try to come up with something more contemporary, although Rap and Hip-Hope are totally out of the question.  Maybe "Stayin Alive" by the Bee Gees? I'm a terrible dancer, but I did try to "disco" to that one back in the 70's.  Not a pretty sight.  Take care.

        You're very welcome, it was fun fracturing a great song.  But sorry, it's back to Woodstock tomorrow for my first anniversary blog post.  Take care.
