Is this you???????


You know how expensive drugs are, esp. cancer drugs?...... I found a way around that.

I will taking an anti cancer pill once a day for up to 5 years or even longer.

The cost for name brand pills is around $600 for a supply of 30 tablets.

The cost for generic is 300.00 to 450.00, depending on what pharmacy in town. Cash price, we have no drug insurance.

Bought them today for $21.49, 30 days supply, using an online GoodRx.com coupon which Wal-Mart honors.
Even the pharmacy assist. could not believe the price, she and Mr. Dixie were sharing amazement.
I am stunned that something that sounded too good to be true actually worked.

We can afford this treatment, at least for now.

Southerners.....are the love bugs not showing up in your area?

This is 2nd year in a row that we have not seen hardly any love bugs around our town.

As Southerners know, these swarms of bugs show up in the spring and in the fall, millions of them, and can make a huge mess on cars, esp. the grille.

But the swarms have been gone in SW Ala. it seems, for 2 years now. I saw ONE love bug yesterday afternoon...well, 2, since we see them when they are mated together.

Best face palm ever!





Florida man fatally shot while testing out bulletproof vest

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Police say a Florida man asking if a bulletproof vest "still worked" was fatally shot by his cousin.

A Tampa Police report says 23-year-old Joaquin Mendez put on the vest late Saturday and "wondered aloud whether it still worked."

Police say his cousin, 24-year-old Alexandro Garibaldi, pulled out a gun and responded, "Let's see."

Got my gene test back that tells me if chemo will help or not.

There were 3 possible answers: ( this is a gene test for breast cancer)

1.. treatment benefits are very likely to outweigh risks of chemo side effects

2.. chemo side effects are very likely to outweigh treatment benefits

3.It’s unclear whether the benefits of chemotherapy outweigh the risks of side effects.

and damned if I did not get the 3rd result, leaving me with no clear answer.

In fact, the results said studies show that chemo and hormone treatment would result in a 13% chance of cancer recurrence
while hormone treatment alone would result in a 16% chance.

3% difference.

and no time left to dither, it has been 60 days since mastectomy ( they got all the known cancer)

So, long afternoon and evening of discussing with Mr. dixie, weighing pros and cons of our personal situation, etc.

Let's just ponder that for a second.

ok..share your ponder.

As election time draws near, a reminder...(pic)

Adblock Plus is launching a new service that... uh, puts more ads on your screen.

The marketplace is a extension of the Acceptable Ads program that Adblock Plus has been running since 2011.
Since then, the ad blocker has defaulted to “whitelisting” approved ads, so that they show up even when users have the blocker turned on.

The ad marketplace is launching in beta today and is supposed to launch in full later this year.

Which is why I do not use Adblock any longer....the name is so misleading.

Trump is in trouble now, he has pissed off THIS group:
