In the picture above we all have on our hiking gear and this is probably a shot just before locking the car and beginning the hike, when we thought we were really going to go hiking. All the shirts so nice and clean, the boots, sunglasses, camera, rain gear, socks and sock liners that wick…yes all set to go. I became a master at taking group pictures. I had this little black tripod with a Velcro strap that could be put on a rock or attached to a tree to get the perfect perspective. Another funny thing about some of our group pictures. I would have everybody do something than just smile or stare into the camera. I got the idea for a “professional shot” from a photographer who took some pictures for me for the team…

Vasectomy 101:Gainesville’s Northeast Georgia Urology Group, NGUA (Everything you wanted to know about a vasectomy but were afraid to ask.)

Some of these are quite entertaining!

Everything you need to know and ask about a vasectomy “before” you have one done. (If you have a question or issue not addressed, mention it as a comment and I’ll address it gladly. I want this to be an “exhaustive” resource to those considering a vasectomy.)

Five myths about a a vasectomy often used by the reluctant male as an excuse not to have a vasectomy.

  • Is a vasectomy permanent? Well yes and no. A vasectomy is a procedure that takes a segment of the vas tube (the tube small tube that carries sperm from each testicle and epididymis) and then by various means occludes the remaining ends. The remaining ends can be tied with suture, burned or fulgurated (the body heals the trauma of being heated with scarring), or clips. The success rate of all the ways to “tie off” both ends are about the same. At Northeast Georgia Urological Associates we…

RUSH: I want to tell you where I was yesterday. I attended the funeral for the author Vince Flynn in St. Paul, Minnesota, yesterday, and it was amazing. Three thousand people at a beautiful, beautiful Catholic Church, 3,000 people. It was a closed casket, but the viewing began at nine. The line was two blocks long to get in. There were people from all over the country. People flew in from Hawaii, arriving at 9:30 yesterday. The funeral was at 10:30. People flew overnight from Hawaii to get there from all over the country. Vince had friends in the US military. There were dress Marines. There were Secret Service.

Huge, huge family, great people, very, very loving. They were doing so great for the circumstances…

Who was Bob Monkhouse? Hint- Zappa, Bixby, Fogleberg and Albin’s father. The prostate cancer that kills in three years- the one i worry about

Cancer does not discriminate .

If you twitter check out the Bob Monkhouse page- ” When I told them I was going to be a comedian, they laughed. No one is laughing now.”  Now that is good stuff!

Monkhouse was married twice, to Elizabeth Thompson on November 5, 1949 (divorced in 1972), and then to Jacqueline Harding on October 4, 1973. He had three children from his first marriage, but only his daughter Abigail survived him. His son Gary Alan, who had cerebral palsy, died in Braintree, Essex, in 1992, aged 40; this led to Monkhouse being an avid campaigner for the disabled. His other son Simon, from whom he had been estranged for almost a decade, died of a heroin overdose in a Bangkok hotel in 2001.[3][9]

In July 1995, Monkhouse appealed for the return of a ring binder that constituted one of his ‘joke books’, offering a £10,000…
