    I'm not looking for sympathy

         I am sorry about the lack of updates lately.  I just don't want to place anything except relevant information and was delayed 7 weeks in getting the results of the first VA PET scan.  They said it was because I changed chemo providers. Anyway, the results were not good news.  The cancer ...

    I'm not looking for sympathy

    Thanks to all of you that are still supporting me.  I value you more than you may know!   I had a PET scan last week which (confusing) shows I am still stable.  The confusing part is that there was no comparison done with the previous (Non-VA) scan.  So in reality, until next chemo (April 14th)...

    Midwest smoke out

    Has anyone here given thought to the Midwest Smoke Out this year (April 30th, Merrillville, IN, Radisson Star Plaza, $160.00)?  I'm trying to decide if I am going to go and seeing some of you there would certainly help me make up my mind.  Thanks,   Steve

    Calling ass.Vendors - how about a Group Buy on a Bobken?

    Antique stores are a GREAT place to find the Floor ashtrays.  Sometimes relatively inexpensively.

    I'm not looking for sympathy

    My 13th chemo treatment is over.  The next one will be at the VA.  I am retiring at the end of January, but will use accumulated vacation for a little over 6 weeks.  I will receive my 1st Social Security check in the middle of February.  Everything that I can report is pretty much the same...

    Just get on the plane and go!

    What a great idea.  Create a CP group trip.  Perfect!  Great cigars, and greater brothers and sisters gathered in the name of friendship and cigars.  It just doesn't get better.
