Here is a link to my wife Beverly's battle with Glioblastoma Multiforme brain cancer
Thank you. - bentley
That's quite the battle, Mike. - Stephan from iPhone
Glad that this is helping you, and that you have a record. It's hard to know what to say, Mike, but I think of you and Beverly often, and I wish you all the love and joy you can find together ((hugs)) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Aw. Many hugs to you both. - Meg VMeg from Android
My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you all. - Friar Will
Sending you and Beverly lots of prayers and comfort hugs. - Tamara J. B.
Thinking of you and Beverly and praying for comfort and peace for both. *hugs* - Anne Bouey
Reading this made me pause, and offer up a prayer. All the very best to both of you. - Iain Baker
Hugs, lots of hugs also from here - Brixie
Thanks everyone. I had been forgetting to use Twitter, so I thought I would leave the link as my last tweet for a while. Forgot it would filter here. Been busy managing the hotel/ restaurant/ zoo that is our home. Her condition is changing slowly, vitals are good. I'm good. - Mike Nencetti
Still thinking of you both. Hope your weekend is going well ((hugs)) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
We celebrated thanksgiving today, in case she is unable to later this month. Have a full house of family. We had a successful first week with her bedridden, keeping her clean and comphy. She is not in any pain. She is able to enjoy most food.. my days usually start at 4am .I'm doing good. thanks for checking. - Mike Nencetti
Thanks for sharing Mike Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. - Ulrich von Liechtenstein

Early Thanksgiving is a great idea. I'm sure everyone present appreciated it. - Marie
I'm glad you all were able to enjoy Thanksgiving. - vicster: hon. canadian
Seeing the whole story in journal form -- so many tears. What a devastating kind of cancer. Much love to you and your family, Mike. Rest in peace, Beverly. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

I am thankful the stereo receiver I had my eye on for a year was on Amazon deals today. I couldn't be more American.
The Yamaha? I noticed that, but I'm hesitating. - Greg GuitarBuster
Yes Greg that's the one it's not the world beater but has the airplay I needed and juice. Based on reviews online it's good but has limitations in wireless. The receiver it is replacing is from 1989 it works just fine just problems with my unique airport express connection to it and juice. Finally dropped below price point. - Ulrich von Liechtenstein from Android
My mother in law would like to know why we're going this way instead of the way she usually goes.

You know you’re a grown-up when your Christmas wish is a new vacuum cleaner.
That sucks. - bentley
Roomba! - Steven Perez
I am so in the market. I want a Roomba AND a Dyson. Is a Dyson really that great, though? Would love other opinions. I have a lot of carpet in my new house. - Laura Norvig
I have a Miele that I love. LOVE! Her name is Mona. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
^We absolutely love our Miele too. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
So Laura we have a Dyson it works just fine but is no better then any of our previous vacuums. Consumer Reports rates bagged vacuums in this order: Kenmore Elite, Miele Twist, Miele Cat/Dog, Kenmore 31140, Kenmore Progressive, Hoover WindTunnel (with the last three being best buys and the first three being great but expensive). For bagless it is: Hoover Windtunnel T Series, Eureka Airspeed, Eureka airspeed Gold, Dyson Animal, Shark Rotator (with the first two marked as best buys). - Ulrich von Liechtenstein
For Roombas I'm eyeing one but they now have approximately half a billion models out. The best reviewed one is Roomba 880 for Pets it is a change in brushes from all the other models so it doesn't get jammed up but is too expensive right now. Ten more model releases and its price will drop. And as the cleaner in the house I know too much and apologize for hijacking Jandy's post. :) - Ulrich von Liechtenstein
My god a Roomba would change my life lol - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I owned a Roomba several years ago and found it wasn't as much a timesaver as I thought because the brush gets filled with hair VERY quickly, requiring you to take it out and cut or pull the hair off of it. Probably not a problem for people with crewcuts but it got old quickly for me. - Spidra Webster
Steve, does that Consumer Reports have ratings for handheld ones? I really need something like a Dustbuster. - Spidra Webster
Oh hey it does in another article. Hand held are in this order: Shark Pet Perfect, Eureka Easy Clean, Bissell Pet Hair Eraser, Dirt Devil classic. Stick vacuums: Dyson Animal, Dyson motorhead, Shark Rocket, Hoover Platinum, Shark Navigator, Dirt Devil Accucharge, Bissell Featherweight. - Ulrich von Liechtenstein
If you want a cheaper Roomba, they always have refurbs showing up on Woot. - Eric - Regulate
Thanks, Steve! - Spidra Webster
You have no idea how excited I got over our new vacuum. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Also I had a Hoover Wind tunnel and it sucked. It died after a month. Never again. I have to say I have really loved my dirt devil. I wanna try a Miele next. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
My dad has sent me the Consumer Reports info as well, but I haven't taken time to look it over. Thanks for the personal reactions to your vacuums, guys. :) - Jandy
We still have a Riccar that works well. The repairman liked these and uses something similar himself. He said there's Panasonic branded ones that are basically the same inside. Looking at the bag, there are several brands that use the same upright. Actually wrong bag but you get the point. We... more... - Rodfather from Android
I'm quite happy with our Eureka Airspeed--not too heavy and does a fine job with cat hair (and has good suction on tools). - Walt Crawford
I have a Dyson, and it's pretty great. We looked at the Kenmore bagless at the same time; even though they were a lot cheaper to buy, there was a lot of maintenance cost down-the-line that you don't have with the Dyson (all of the filters in the Dyson are permanent; the ones in the Kenmore are supposed to be replaced regularly, etc.). The Dyson is a lot of money (though there are some pretty great sales on them this time of year), but I honestly believe it was worth it. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

HBO to make film of Scientology book, hires 160 lawyers - -
HBO to make film of Scientology book, hires 160 lawyers -
"HBO is backing a documentary based on "Going Clear," a book about Scientology and Hollywood -- and isn't taking any chances with the legal side of things. "We have probably 160 lawyers" looking at the film, HBO Documentary Films President Sheila Nevins told The Hollywood Reporter. (HBO, like CNN, is a unit of Time Warner.) "Going Clear," by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Lawrence Wright ("The Looming Tower"), digs into the life of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and the influence his church has had on its believers, many of whom have close ties to Hollywood." - Ulrich von Liechtenstein from Bookmarklet

I fucking HATE thieves. My younger brother in Kentucky, one of the best people I know, had his 2000 Jeep Cherokee stolen. He went out to his Jeep before work and it was gone. He locks it religiously. He bought the Jeep off Mom & Dad and he's babied it, worked on it, painted it. I hope the thief gets his testicles chewed off by a large dog.
I am not even kidding. - Jed from iPhone
Man, that sucks. Yes, thieves are fucking shitty. Sorry this happened to your brother. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
I can understand how you feel. My previous car was stolen three times (once as a joyride, and twice stripped). - imabonehead
Thanks, guys. Brother just texted. Police found Jeep on a tip. He sent me pic. Busted steering column and the Jeep is dirty as fuck. Glad they found it, but I hope the police finds whoever did this. Barring that, again, I hope the thief gets his testicles bitten off. - Jed

Diana is now the proud owner of a new dental practice that is beautiful and modern and fancy and pretty much only operated by her. But as the smartest person I know she can handle it. I’m hoping to help send people her direction. I know it’s far from many of us being in San Clemente but if you know someone in the area or are willing to make the drive for a good dental visit I’d appreciate it. - Ulrich von Liechtenstein from Bookmarklet

San Francisco window washer falls onto moving car

"A worker fell screaming 11 stories from the roof of a bank building Friday morning onto a moving car, crushing its roof and sending shattered glass flying into the street, police and witnesses said. The man suffered critical injuries, but he was conscious, police said. The car's driver, Mohammad Alcozai, was not injured. He told KGO-TV that he's happy to be alive especially after his car's roof almost completely collapsed in the accident. He said he is praying that the worker survives." - Ulrich von Liechtenstein from Bookmarklet

and the big bug is back. he's either made a home in here somewhere or is getting in somehow. it's been days... shouldn't he be dead by now? so creepy.
It's even creepier if you assumed the big bug is an ex-boyfriend when reading. - Ulrich von Liechtenstein
k, he's gone again, but I'm pretty sure he's hiding in the top right corner of one of the window frames. there's a bitty space there. also I investigated the windows and turns out some vines had poked through the top of the screen frame and were peaking into the inside so that's likely how he got in. took care of that. now iffin I feel like putting some big girls pants on, maybe I'll try to trap him and get him outta here. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

So I just realized that the animal decal on Karina's wall that I've been telling her is a hippo is actually a rhino. #parentfail
That's three years of therapy right there for Karina. - Ulrich von Liechtenstein
And then when her teacher calls to tell you of her inexplicable inability to recognize a hippo..... - WarLord
This is like the adoptive dad who assumed his ethnic Korean kid was Chinese all over again! - Andrew C (✔)
That's ok, There was this big glass cookie jar than nobody in the family could identify what animal it was supposed to be, for almost four decades. There was disagreement over whether it was an elephant (based on its feet and tail) or a pig (based on it's face) or some sort of freakishly weird combo animal (which was the most acceptable answer). It wasn't until it was finally passed down to me that I got a chance to see it again, and figured out it was a hippo. - April Russo
Can we see a pic of this rhino so we know how much to mock you? - SAM
^ That. - Kristin
It's a rhino who lost his horn in an unfortunate poaching incident but lived to tell the tale. - Melly - #TeamMarina
April, that sounds a bit like the wildebeest (gnu) that legend says was made from leftover parts: the head of a warthog, the stripes of a zebra, the horns and neck of a buffalo, the body of a cow, and the mane and tail of a lion. - Anne Bouey
Actually, it just looks like a pig with elephant feet. - April Russo
It's clearly got a horn, but I'm usually looking at it in semi-darkness before we've turned on the lights in her room. I didn't notice the horn until recently, and she knows hippos from "But Not the Hippopotamus" so I just kind of starting pointing it out to her as a hippo without really looking at it. - Jandy
Crisis averted. Had almost $700 disappear from my bank account. Turns out they used my account number for next customer's counter check

Revenge has turned into a telenovela. Shame. It had potential.
I have been saying this since the beginning! I can't stop watching it because it's so ridiculous, but I honestly keep thinking, wait, isn't this like a telenovela? - Corinne L
I don't watch it but am forced to catch snippets when wife has control of DVR. If they can't stay on one scene for more than 30 seconds and more than half the cast has been dead or tortured and yet now rich it's a telenovela. - Ulrich von Liechtenstein
I guess they have to do that to extend the number of seasons. I mean really, go tell your dad it's you already. How silly is that? - Todd Hoff
And then after she tells him it's her, she doesn't go into all the shit Victoria did to her. I'm just like what? And why is the David we are seeing now so different from peaceful, flashback David? - Petty LaBelle
Is it really David? Is she really remembering things correctly? Is she really his daughter? What father doesn't recognize his daughter? - Todd Hoff
And why won't anyone make David shave?! - Corinne L

RT @williamfleitch: You really can't talk enough about how insane (and how entertaining) this Kobe Bryant-Lakers situation is.
According to Sporting Charts, Kobe Bryant's current plus-minus is -130. Of the 407 players they track in the NBA, that is … 407th. That's dead last. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute is better than that. The Lakers, coming into tonight's game against Atlanta, have been outscored by a total of 105 points this year. You can probably see where this is going. When Kobe Bryant has been on the floor,... more... - Ulrich von Liechtenstein
"Isn't that amazing? Isn't that the most shocking thing? I mean, think about it: Kobe Bryant -- a Hall of Famer, one of the top 20 players of all-time, a man with five championships -- thinks the only way his team won't be embarrassed is if he completely takes over … and according to the efficiency numbers, he probably shouldn't be starting." - Rodfather
The weird thing is, I played the Lakers & Warriors game on NBA 2K15 and the results were almost the same. I blew them out by 20 and Kobe took way too many shots. - Rodfather
I'm actually surprised he's got the worst plus-minus on the team (much less the league...) - Andrew C (✔)
That was a fun article. - Brian Johns
You'd think at least one of the Sixers would be worse. - John (bird whisperer)
The guy had a massive injury and hasn't really played for two years and he's getting old. I'm not actually that surprised. - Victor Ganata
It's not that surprising that he's bad, but it is surprising that his mentality is still that he's the savior amongst basketball hobos and riffraff. - Andrew C (✔)
I dunno, it's a lot like MJ in his twilight years on the Wizards. Or Magic after his second retirement. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
