Will Letter for Lunch: One Woman’s Plan to Hand-Write Menus in Exchange for Food -- Grub Street
"Hom is currently working on her sixth project in Clinton Hill — and some places, like Docklands, have requested that she hand-write their entire menus. "I go in, I letter, and then everything I write, I get to eat," she explains. "It's a complete fair barter. So if I write the entire menu, sometimes I'll have to go back multiple times and bring friends to feast. It's amazing!"" - rönin from Bookmarklet
"Graphic designer Lauren Hom started noticing that many handsome restaurants overlooked a detail that, in her mind, was critical: the hand-writing on their chalkboard signs. "I noticed that it's common for a restaurant to have a menu board that's written by, like, a hung-over hostess," she says. "And it's totally not a diss on anyone's handwriting, but I thought, I could do that and... more... - Steve C Team Marina

My wife can barely speak at all, due to the tumor. (to communicate we ask questions and she nods) I have noticed in the early mornings she says a few words. I made a short video and emailed it to her daughter, saying thank you and love you. only 5 words, but the video made her day.
You are a good guy, Mike. These days are precious and it takes a huge heart to share them. You are amazing. - Shannon - GlassMistress
no matter how bad things are - we try to find some joy in each day, we call them small victories. its going to get tough in the coming weeks. we have all the hospice meds ready to make this as comfortable as possible. thanks shannon. - Mike Nencetti
That's really beautiful, Mike. - Jenny H. from Android
Be well - WarLord
that's a wonderful thing to do -it's something her daughter can hold on to and save. Having just watched my dad in hospice care and my mother caring for him, please remember to take care of yourself too. And yes, the small victories, whatever they are, are so important. - ellbeecee
What a beautiful gift, Mike, both for Beverly that she was able to tell her daughter that she loves her, and for her daughter, who will treasure that. I continue to hold you both close in my thoughts. - vicster: full-bodied
That's a wondferful thing to have done, Mike. I wish you both many more victories and joys in the coming weeks. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

For those of you who watched Stargate SG-1 and either didn't see the Stargate Continuum movie or saw it but didn't watch the featurettes: If you didn't see the movie (and saw the series), you really should. The key thing, though...
Watch the featurettes--specifically the 21-minute "Stargate Goes To the Arctic" one. Those really strong early scenes set in the Arctic, including the nuclear sub rising through the ice and most of SG-1 getting on the sub, scenes set on the sub, and the sub descending? Great special effects, right? - Walt Crawford
Except, as the featurette shows, they weren't special effects. The sub was real (and its crew was used for the sub scenes), it really was the deep Arctic, the team and a reduced filming crew spent more than a week in those conditions...amazing stuff. - Walt Crawford

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: Water Witch
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

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

People who live in Wasco have taken photos of the clowns, who have been spotted all over the city in the middle of the night. No one seems to know why they're there, or who is behind the appearances." - rönin from Bookmarklet
