The worst kind, real aggressive. They got it cut out successfully but his body reacted poorly to the experimental vaccine. So, he can't receive that. Best cases for these live around 4 years, average a year or less. Started chemo today.
She's taking it really hard. I mean really hard. She's only ...

My parents just moved to NC and my dad is thinking of trying fly fishing. I want to get him some lessons or a class for Christmas so he can try it out before he buys all the gear.
Any recommendations or tips on what I should be looking for? Or any great outfitters I should be looking at around th...

what's the proper procedure for this? The job is doing something else that I enjoy more and am qualified to do. It's a step up in my opinion. I've been told to speak with my current boss about it, to see what he thinks and how I'd do. What does everyone else think? How should I go about this? I've n...

Anyone heard of this? It's internet based tv and dvr, no coaxial cables needed, and you can watch on your current TVs.

I talked to a friend of mine I haven't talked to in a while and it looks like he got a letter from the IRS.

Long story short, I do not have a 401k available through my work. I'm 26 and work full time. I started an IRA effective 2009. I maxed it out last year and plan on doing it again this year. But that's the most I can do with it year in and year out.
I'm wondering if any of the money savvy folks her...

I think most guys don't like chick flicks because they're sappy, unrealistic, fairy tale versions of relationships that girls eat up and dream of, but that don't ring true at all to real life love.
I recently saw An Officer and a Gentleman again, and I found I cared much more about Zach and Paula...

What are the streaming options?
I don't have cable.
My ISP doesn't have an agreement with espn so I don't have espn3
I know it will be on a few sites I already know but the feeds are pretty crappy. Are there any outlets, even for a price, offering a QUALITY stream for the game tonight?

He just posted his TED talk today.
I thought it was pretty inspiring, and an interesting look into his life now, and how he's been able to deal with it.
He doesn't have a jawbone anymore, but instead of a computer voice for the entire speach, he has his friends take turns reading. It almost fe...

1. Player one breaks but doesn't sink a ball. The table is open. Player two attempts a combo shot with a st...
