    That spammers

    That spammers will even post in a thread where we're vilifying them. I think that this one is especially egregious, given the theme of the thread and the spammer's solicitation for our prayers! That is just about as low as you can get. Isn't it? Time for Marye to break out the flamethrower, once again...

    Take a moment to remember those who perished 10 years ago. Thank goodness Al Qaeda has lost it's grip on effective destruction. On a much more mundane note, I think the Kansas City Chiefs suck big-time: can we send Pioli back to Boston and Haley back to Phoenix ??!! '9'rs looked good in a late afternoon game.

It's true, it's amazing how much veterinary science has progressed. Good for you for catching it early, healing beams to your doggie, good face beams to you and your family. What's her name? My Rex and Callie send their good doggie vibes also.

Sorry to hear about your dog and hope things are on the up swing for you guys. The sooner these problems are caught, the better the outcome. Like marye said, the dog docs are getting better and better at treating our little friends. I also can relate 'cause one of my dogs just received a clean bill of health after a really rough spell in which she had an emergency operation to save her life, a few weeks ago. Unfortunately she has lost her hearing (as a result of the operation) and I've had a tough time (emotionally) accepting that fact. But now that she's getting back to normal, playing and romping around with us again, I'm just grateful she's alive. Like Warren Zevon said (and perhaps I understand better with every experience that brushes death's doorstep), "Enjoy every sandwich"... with your dog ; - )

beams to you as well. My Callie, now 11 (the spotted one), has been deaf her whole life. Certainly never slowed her down. You might want to check out the Deaf Dogs list on yahoo groups; it's very active and very nice folks. While I'd say the lion's share of the discussions have to do with rescue, adoption and training of deafies-from-birth, people often come along after their hearing dogs have lost their hearing for one reason or another and want some coping strategies. When Callie was young we used to go to local Deaf Dogs picnics, but now that we're all geezers in this house we've lost touch with that scene a bit. Sounds like your girl is coping just fine however!

As a casual poster on this site I feel little weird asking, but everyone here has always been so excellent to me I figured any prayers/thoughts from such a good group of folks would be a big help.My one y/o son is having surgery tomorrow to have tumor removed from his chest. Though not growing on his spine, it is pressed right against it. The docs can't say for sure whether it's benign or malignant. The statistics tend to be on our side (benign), but we won't be sure until pathology gets a chance to take a look. If you have the time please keep my family in your thoughts. Thanks.

The surgery went pretty well for my son. It turns out that it was not a single mass (tumor), but instead a group of inflamed lymphnodes. The surgeons seemed encouraged, if not a little puzzled by this. Now we are just waiting on results from pathology. Thank you all for your positive thoughts and prayers. It is always pleasant when you realize that there are some genuinely good people out there. Thanks. "...the powerful plays goes on, and you may contribute a verse" -Walt Whitman-

McB2B - the news sounds good on your son. I'm praying for a full resolution for you and your family that includes a long life for all. Keep us posted. marye - thanks for the advice on my (now) deaf Yorkie. She's doing great, btw. Each day she's more like her old self. As for the deaf condition, she follows her brother's lead and seems to be doing as well as she has for the last year or more, which makes me think this surgery was a real life saver because (we think now) that the last few ear "infections" were being caused by the tumor and why they didn't seem to respond to just antibotics (we had to get Rx for steroids the last two times she has been sick). I'm so happy that she's well again! Thanks to all for your well wishes.

I haven't posted here ever before... used to hang out back in the 90's in a chat called "710 Ashbury", and haven't had the time since about 98', so a lot to say but will try and keep it short... haven't seen a show since Phoenix 94, just kinda faded away after Uncle Jerry went to play that great gig in the sky. Much has happened in my life since then. Kinda drifted in and out of the rainbow family for a few years, then joined the machine and became a heavy equipment operator of all things. That took me out to Reno and into a union and... well I'll save that for later, but, it eventually took me to Iraq working for a company out of Houston called KBR. It is truely amazing for me to look back at it all and see just how far I have strayed from who I really am in the name of the almighty dollar. I spent more time living in a warzone listening to Jerry and Bobby and Phil then I had until rescently since my last show. I'm home now and definitely scrambled in the head. Because I was a civilian contractor, there are no benefits available for counseling, no one will hire me, and I am so deep in debt, I can't even see the sun anymore. I only sleep 2 to 3 hours at a time and only 4 or 5 times a week. I keep my doors locked and have been living my life infront of my computer trying to get out of my head... but, I found a couple of my old cd's cleaning the house the other day and I have been back on the bus. I feel, just from the music, that the hole that war has left in me is slowly, very slowly, starting to close. I've been home for over a year and more than half my friends don't even know I'm home. Honestly, just so I know it myself, I'm not living this way out of fear, more, I feel that this is my pennance of sorts... I have created my own cell... I have nothing but love for all mankind, but the images trapped in my head still won't go away, so, I guess I'm askin for nothin but love... I could really use some good vibes and words of encouragement to know, weather you all agree with war, the war, or anything related to that whole scene, I'm still alive and its never too late. Sorry for the downer. Thanks for reading my vent, and if anyone cares to, feel free to drop me a private message or post a responce. Thanks again and, from what is left of my heart, never let go of the music.Chubs I be.

What free idea said "it's not a downer to listen..." Also it sounds like you got some stuff to get out, and we certainly don't mind listening. Hang in there Chubsib, take it day by day, and perhaps come back here from time to time, where people are kind. Is at least one more guy here who knows first hand what you've been through in Irak. He's still there, so perhaps you can hook up with writing to him here? Peace and inner strength to you Chubsib,and lots and lots of good vibes. ********************************** Don't part with your illusions.

Well first off positive vibes Look man get out of the house, don't lock yourself into a cell and shut others out. Find others with your same experience and talk about it. If no counseling is available to you. You need to vent holding stuff in only creates anger and self sorrow. Don't feel sorry for yourself. Get out go to a show seems like there is alot of the scene out there get away for a few days. I know we alllike to have our higher conciousness or altered whatever. But please my brother don't drink yourself into a cave. Now that that is said. I know the experience and am sure have been in much worse situations than any KBR personnel. Please don't take that as a personal strike against you. It's not. I'm sure the thing is something you wish to contend with. death is a daily deal contractors are not exempt from the horrors and are targets as well. So with all that said and you start thinking who the fuck is this guy to tell me. My name is SFC Dwight R. Laporte am on my 3rd tour in Iraq. My job is combat engineer. I parachuted in Bashur Iraq in 03. returned in 06 to Mosul and am again currently in Mosul. I could go into great detail of war but don't think this is tjhe place. War sucks but is a reality we all have to deal with. everyone is affected either directly or indirectly. Have friends or family members who have been here etc. Maybe for me I've just kinda built of an internal defense. Sometimes nothing seems to matter, I always say if no body's dead it ain't that serious. I've been posting on here alot for the last couple month's cause we are getting ready to go home and have toned down some. Have made some grate friends here and hope to meet them somewhere one day. It helps me cause I a freakin deadhead and we all relate. And like you off the bus for a long time. I catch a fest when I can but won't be able to be completly free for 3 more years. I've gotten so much recent info about what is going on these days here. And like you when Jerry passed I kinda just lost touch with it all. Still listened of course but stayed in the Army. Anyway what did you do with all those big dollars KBR paid you, ha ha. Look man write me anytime. I look forward each day hoping some of my dead.net friends dropped me a line or responde to a post in a goofy way is alot of fun and is a release for me. So to all of you thanks. And chubs you can get past the bad but doing it alone is not the way to go believe me

Thank you for you're post, it shows we all have stuff that sucks and we can't deal with. I used to be a regular at a chat place called wemissjerry.org. Haven't posted or chatted in awhile. The funny thing is that we all need our time and space to figure it all out. What I do know is that the spark that was kindled in your heart for what most call "Dead" is acutally alive. I've never been through what you are speaking, have heard alot of indepent contractors that have gone there, but what you are going through is not irregular. Don't stay at home, don't be reclusive, and please let your light SHINE! Most people don't know of the Grateful Dead and what's known is either Jerry died or it's a Hippy Community. I know this...I wasn't born in the 60's, nor in a commune, nor did I waste my youth....You are a part of something bigger than that, which is what you know is to be true! There is more love in this place of existance than you know. I've been in the deepest darkest of holes, yet I knew I was meant for more, why? Not because of me but because there are truly people in the world that care. You are one of the few light that beacons from every spectrum of the universe...so just LET IT SHINE. Being a youngin I only understand a little, but I'm sure that all the love you find in this place WILL NOT FADE AWAY!

I'd like to thank all of you for being assertive, innovative and expressive within this forum over the past couple of years. Tomorrow, I'll be in surgery and hope that I return to your flavorful posts, even if you're Republican. David, if you're out there somewhere, see if you can find a recording from New Orleans > 10/18-19/80. If the anesthesia isn't too strong and the slicer isn't hungover, expect my return. If not, grdaed73 can have my double imperial IPA,s downstairs in the fridge. Good luck, God bless, and long live the Grateful Dead~!!
