today at the state fair, my wife and dotters and i shared a red velvet funnel cake together on a picnic table in gusting 40mph winds. POWDERED SUGAR EVERYWHERE.
we looked like some sort of improv troupe doing a bizarre group recreation of Pacino's performance in "Scarface". :P - Big Joe Silence
oh, we were all huddled around it trying to shield the powdered sugar from the wind, as if the funnel cake was some newborn kitten we'd found in a frozen alley. it was comical in the extreme. - Big Joe Silence

Vatican proposes 'stunning' shift on gays, lesbians – CNN Belief Blog - Blogs -
"Using strikingly open language, a new Vatican report says the church should welcome and appreciate gays, and offers a solution for divorced and remarried Catholics who want to receive Communion. At a press conference on Monday to present the report, Cardinal Louis Antonio Tagle of the Philippines said Catholic clergy meeting here have largely focused on the impact of poverty, war and immigration on families. But the newly proposed language on gays and civil marriages represents a “pastoral earthquake,” said one veteran Vatican journalist. “Regarding homosexuals, it went so far as to pose the question whether the church could accept and value their sexual orientation without compromising Catholic doctrine,” said John Thavis, a former Rome bureau chief for Catholic News Service. The Rev. James Martin, an author and Jesuit priest, called the report's language on gays and lesbians "revolutionary."" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

contacting hospice creates family drama. Im ok with being the bad guy.
I'll do my best to keep the drama off of Facebook. I just desperately needed a hospice bed. My poor wife is going through hell. She may be put through more hell, I'll just do my best to give her the best care. She deserves it. - Mike Nencetti
She cannot talk, she cannot walk, she cannot dress herself, she cannot tell someone she is in pain. Things will get worse, horrifically worse. My calling hospice was an intervention for her. A cry for mercy. But unfortunately family may step in and - well hopefully the bad guy can get her the care she needs. I do not need to be liked, - Mike Nencetti
What is the opposition to hospice? - Anne Bouey
Do what you need to do. My dad has been at home under hospice care since mid/late August. He's very near the end now, but this was the right thing to do. You know your wife and what she wants. Focus on getting that. - ellbeecee from Android
Chemo is out because she cannot move without crap loads of steroids and and almost choked on her vomit a few days ago, by the time could qualify for a trial she wil most likely be dead. I really have no idea. - Mike Nencetti
I'll just let things play out. My only drama was taking the Drs advice and contacting hospice. But wow, am amazed how that can cause so many attacks on me. I'm ok. I will take the hits for my wife. - Mike Nencetti
Oh, Mike. I really hope that the family comes around and realizes that hospice care is what is best for Beverly. - vicster: full-bodied
It's her daughter. She will be here soon. - Mike Nencetti
I'm sorry that their way of dealing with their grief is to lash out at you, Mike, and you are a very forgiving guy to take it on the chin like that. You know what is best, and you are doing what you need to do. All strength and love to you both ((hugs)) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
My hope is that when her daughter arrives, she will be able to meet with hospice and see that they are there to keep her mom comfortable and to support you and all the family (including her). These are always tough decisions, but you know best. I wish you peace, Mike. *hugs* - Anne Bouey
glioblastoma destroys famiies. We are fortunate, most GBM patients have little quality of life. I'll let her daughter do what she wants. I am as worried for her as I am for my wife. Being the step dad, not being likes is part of the job. I do not think there is much she can do.. - Mike Nencetti
Hopefully she does what's best for her mum and not just what's best for her. Quality of life goes up and down the chain and playing the hero (or martyr) isn't always the best option for the person who needs the care. Sending peace and love, my friend. - Johnny
I can't say enough wonderful things about hospice. In my experience, people get upset that hospice gets involved because they're afraid it means their loved one is dying today or tomorrow .. and while that can be the case .. you'll get more benefit from hospice if they get involved before it gets to that point. Hospice offers amazing support and counseling for the entire family and they... more... - Kristin
Thanks everyone. i meet with the social worker, and hospice nurse today. not yet heard about the bed. I'm going into work the rest of the week, to avoid as much drama as possible. i'm being treated like one of the kids, not her husband. i'll try to update this thread soon. i'll get counselling soon. i am sure I will need it. - Mike Nencetti
I often wish Josh's family had been okay with hospice care for my MIL rather than try to nurse her themselves at home. I honestly think it would have been better for everyone. - Melly - #TeamMarina
oh dear, Mike. I'm so sorry. But I am glad you've called hospice. I hope you get counseling and the support you need from your own sources. (I bet hospice can help you!!) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Being "the bad guy" is often merely surrogate for "doing what no one else has the courage to do, even though they realize it must be done." You are to be commended in the manner you've taken care of your wife, Mike. Not that you need a pat on the back from me (or anyone else). - MoTO: Team Marina
Thinking of you, Mike. I hope the family will realize you are trying to do the best thing for Beverly and the rest of you. - LB creeps me out.
Maybe it isn't that they object to hospice care, as much as they object to what it means. And yes, you would naturally be "the bad guy" for making them face the truth and taking away any false hope they have left. But for your wife, it's probably best that she is cared for by people that understand her needs, as you understand them, and not cared for by people trying to cling to their... more... - April Russo
Well said, April. - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
Fear does horrid things to people. I hope her daughter understands you are doing this for love of her mother. So very sorry you are dealing with this! - Janet from FFHound!
Love you man I made the call on mom's hospice but I had a supportive family who trusted me and my decisions. I can't imagine going through it up stream. You're doing all you can the best you can and for the right reasons. Take care of yourself please. - Steve C Team Marina
Thanks everyone. Great meeting with the hospice nurse today. Huge help for Beverly. So glad we have this in place. We would soon be in the ER if not. The nurse will return in two days and meet with Beverlys daughter. I'm going to work wed-fri. We still do not have the bed. I believe the drama will be minimal. Beverly will get the care she needs. - Mike Nencetti
Glad it sounds like things are getting resolved. - Anika
I'm so glad that things are settling toward Beverly getting the care she needs and hope that the drama stays at bay. I'm glad you are seeking out care for yourself as well. Care for caregivers is so hugely important. It is exhausting in every way. - vicster: full-bodied
I'm so glad that the meeting went well and I'm sending good thoughts to you all - Galadriel C. from Android
Drama is done for now. I'm slowly seeing people help.Family becoming family. neighbors volunteering to help. more food than we need. we have a lot of challenges ahead. I think we will be ok. - Mike Nencetti
So good to hear that things are settling down a bit and people are helping out. Don't hesitate to say if there is anything you need, or if you just want a place to vent. ((hugs)) to you both. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
so yesterday was my first day at the new part-time little pay no benefits nonprofit gig and it was kind of awesome. aside from having to get used to a new routine of having to be somewhere at a certain time dressed in grown-up clothes and adjusting to a schedule switching between jobs during the week, and digging through the files and emails...
of the last three people who had this job going back to 2012 to try and get oriented, and there being no communal coffee in the office kitchen and no phones, and the first official outreach email I sent was met with consternation and terse chastening from one of our partners, and the first event I'm supposed to be supporting happens tomorrow. the rest of it was awesome, which was basically that I looked and felt fabulous for no reason. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
And that in the end is all that matters. - Steve C Team Marina
"no phones"? - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
inorite? no office phones. the org's contact number is the ED's cell. email, dropbox, Google docs, and texts is how they "do business" bc "only old people make phone calls" (actual quote). yeah, so I wonder why the dude is burning out and needs my help. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
consternation and chastening from introducing yourself? That set off some alarm bells in my head.... I'm glad the rest of it seems good though - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
No coffee??? Run away. - Laura Norvig
What Rudi said. But I'm glad you're feeling good anyway. - Spidra Webster

No house for me. The inspection was scary.

dangit! - Meg VMeg
That's disappointing! - Marie
IME, all inspections are scary, even the ones that go well. - Big Joe Silence
Yeah, but some are scarier than others, and reveal expensive things when the house is being sold as is. - lris
Oh no! - Steele Lawman
I'm sorry, Iris. - Stephen Mack
How disappointing. - RepoRat
I'm sorry that this house didn't work out, but glad you won't get trapped in a money pit of repairs that will keep you from enjoying having your own home. - vicster: full-bodied
Oof. I'm sorry. - Marianne
Aww. At least you didn't get a money pit. - Eric - It's My Thing from iPhone
Congrats on finding out BEFORE you bought - Steve C Team Marina
What Steve said. It's disappointing to not be able to go ahead and get the house you wanted, but there's no hell like home money pit hell. - Spidra Webster
Yeah. I wondered how I would feel after sleeping on it, and I guess I feel like I made the right decision. It would have been a Project House when what I need is just a normal house. Normal houses are projects enough as it is without contemplating demo and rebuilding bits of them. - lris
Unfortunately true. Hoping you find your Normal House soon! - RepoRat
Congratulations and commiserations. (When we've sold houses, we've paid for independent inspections *beforehand* with the inspector's report available at open house; it's helped enormously. Usually, the buyer *still* gets their own inspection, but never finds anything new. It doesn't take much to turn a "great deal" into a money pit.) - Walt Crawford

Will crabs invade Antarctica? - Conservation -
Will crabs invade Antarctica? - Conservation
"Many predatory crabs don’t live in Antarctica for a simple reason: it’s too cold. But as the Earth warms, these clawed critters could invade pristine polar waters and threaten native species, scientists warn in an editorial. The Southern Ocean “has traditionally been regarded as the most biologically isolated and invasion-resistant ocean,” the team writes in the Journal of Biogeography. Predatory crabs, known as “shell-breaking” crabs, probably haven’t lived in the area for millions of years. One reason is that many of these species can’t control the levels of magnesium ions in their bodies very well. In such a cold environment, high magnesium levels lead to paralysis and death. But some crabs may find a way to survive. In February 2010, one of the co-authors discovered an adult female crab from the species Halicarcinus planatus on Deception Island, near the western Antarctic Peninsula. Normally, these crabs stick to warmer areas such as South America, New Zealand, and the... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

HIV's spread traced back to 1920s Kinshasa - LA Times -
HIV's spread traced back to 1920s Kinshasa - LA Times
"In a paper published recently in the journal Science, researchers argued that HIV-1 group M -- the strain of HIV responsible for about 90% of infections worldwide -- first appeared in the city of Leopoldville, or what is now Kinshasa, in the 1920s. Using statistical methods and genetic sequencing data, researchers determined that the disease spread through what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo via poor medical practices and through the interaction of sex workers and miners." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"However, some researchers believe the virus made the jump to humans much earlier. "To say that this started around the 1920s just doesn't wash with me," said Dr. Joseph McCormick, a viral disease expert at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, who was not involved in the study. McCormick said the broad diversity of HIV strains in Africa suggests that the virus had... more... - Steve C Team Marina
Super cool. I remember reading maybe a decade ago that they had tested various archived samples and found cases of HIV as early as 1940. Each step of new knowledge about the origin and spread has been so fascinating to read. I suppose in a way it's "the" illness that's been discovered and researched in my lifetime. I still remember the PSA with Magic Johnson from the beginning of my Wayne's World tape, and reading Ryan White's autobiography as a kid. - Lo

I've been trying to help catch this basset for the last 3 days. She's been roaming around my office, but is terrified of people and other dogs. A rescuer friend set a trap for her yesterday and she avoided it. I saw her again today and this guy named Trent was able to get close enough to slip a leash around her neck. Trent and I sat with her ....
Show all
... until my rescuer friend was able to come and pick her up. She's now in their rescue program and will get the medical attention she needs and learn how to be a dog! Once the leash went around her neck she started wagging and trotting right along. It looks like she was from a backyard breeder who bred her until she couldn't produce puppies anymore. :( But she'll have a good life from here on out. - Kristin
