  1. I just wish everybody with this horrible disease could have the same outcome. One day maybe medicine will be able to cure everyone - I hope so
  2. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I'm pleased to say that I found out today I'm in full remission. I know I couldn't have done it on my own and am grateful to all of you who sent best wishes. Kind regards Flyboy
  3. That's fantastic news, I'm so happy for your whole family
  4. Hey. what did I do to The Bear You took that the exact opposite of what I meant. I live on the West Coast. Then we would be neighbors. now that could be cool
  5. Thanks dingaling, I'll research Leesburg
  6. Thanks Echo, I spit my soda all over my keyboard. Seriously, do you know anything about Ocala
  7. I want to be relatively close to Orlando but not right on the doorstep. Major requirements are good health care facilities and decent shopping. Other than that prefer small town and country (ish) living. From the maps/descriptions I've looked at Ocala looks promising. However, I've never even visited the place so would like to pick CB brains for input/info
  8. The following are comments made by Morgan Freeman. I agree with him to a certain extent "You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here's why. It's because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single *victim* of Columbine? Disturbed people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody. CNN's article says that if the body count "holds up", this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer's face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer's identity? None that I've seen yet. Because they don't sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you've just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next. You can help by forgetting you ever read this man's name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem. You can help by turning off the news." I just wish we could find a way to ensure that such tragedies never happen again. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of all the victims.
  9. My heart goes out to all affected http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-20730717 As many as 27 people have been killed, including 18 children, in a shooting attack at a primary school in the US state of Connecticut, US media say. State Police spokesman Paul Vance would not confirm the number of deaths. US media identified the gunman, who died at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, as Ryan Lanza, 24, said to from New Jersey. If the death toll is confirmed, Newtown would be the second-worst US shooting, after 32 died at Virginia Tech in 2007. Friday's shooting is the third major gun attack in the US in 2012. In July an attacker killed 12 people at a premiere of a Batman film in Aurora, Colorado. In August six people died at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. Children's 'eyes covered' Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy is meeting the families of the victims, a spokesman said, and is expected to visit the school later in the day. He is expected to make a statement at 15:30 EST (20:30 GMT) US President Barack Obama is also due to deliver remarks on the shooting 15 minutes earlier. The American flags on Capitol Hill in Washington DC have been lowered to half-mast in the wake of the attack. Sandy Hook School - described by correspondents as a highly rated school has more than 600 students in classes from Kindergarten to 4th Grade - spanning the ages five to 10. Police arrived at the school soon after 09:40 local time (14:40 GMT), answering reports that a gunman was in the school's main office and one person had "numerous gunshot wounds". Scores of officers at the scene carried out a full search of the site. Classes were cancelled as the situation developed. Schools across the district were immediately on lock-down as a preventive measure, officials said. According to US reports, the gunman's mother was a teacher found among the dead at the school. The Associated Press said his brother was being held by police. The attacker was dressed in black and wearing a bullet-proof vest during the attack, and reportedly used a .223-calibre rifle. Other weapons are also said to have been recovered. With the death toll rising, it emerged that one entire classroom of students may remain unaccounted for, local sources reported. Three other people were taken to hospital and are reported to be in "very serious condition", Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton told CNN. One witness speaking to CNN said that shots were heard coming from the hall. There "must have been 100 rounds" fired, she told the channel. Local media have reported that firefighters instructed children to close their eyes and run past the school's office as they exited the building. Other sources suggest that some of the shots were fired in a school classroom. There were early unconfirmed reports of two shooters, but no further details of a second gunman mentioned by police
  10. Here's a good place for information http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/ I'm not sure it will be as easy as you think unless you have the relevant skills needed, but good luck if you decide to go for it.
  11. Sorry, don't know what happened above. My argument would be that since the police had ordered people to stay off the streets (I assume) you had no control over the situation and shouldn't be penalised by having to take vacation time. I'd be pissed too if I had to do that. Glad you're safe.
  12. ouch, that looks painful. Hope it heals quickly.
  13. Hope the surgery goes well Echo. Almost impossible to do but try not to worry. Thoughts and prayers are with you all
