    Not much to tell (yeah right), I restarted my life about 9 years ago, after spending almost 5 months in the hospital with a fungus that started in my lung that spread to the INSIDE of my brain. The largest of the masses inside my brain was the size of a golf ball, and 10 more of gradually smaller sizes. The Doctors didn't think I would make it, BUT I have a GREAT wife who stood (and slept) by my side. And With GOD in control ALL things were/are possible!
    I play mainly the "games" because they are easy to type. When I type it's ALWAYS like playing Boggle, the way I see the keys, they are always moving around the keypad, dyslexic now I guess (among OTHER problems of the mind). BUT AT LEAST I CAN TYPE AGAIN, even if it's only with one finger. Only on a VERY good day can I do much more.

    PS for a much more detailed account of my (first AND my latest) illness, it can be found in the arena of CHIT CHAT, under the heading of INJURIES, ACCIDENTS AND ILLNESS at Post # 52 and Post # 57 !

    PPS, I go into it A LITTLE more detail about me (like I haven't said enough) in "The Getting To Know You" thread, Post # 70.

    PPSS, even more personal stuff in "Have You Ever?" post # 1097

    PPPSS If you want to see a SHORT story I did, then check out "Have You Got Any Pets" post # 29.

    PPPSSS I've been asked in a couple of PM's about my new (to this site) picture, so I figured I'd answer the questions here once and for all.
    1) Yes, that is a real live Burro.
    2) No, my wife does NOT consider this cheating !
    3) No it was not trained to do that. I was actually warned against doing it at all (I've never been a great listener).
    4)No, it was not in ANY way Photo shopped. It happened as you see it.
    5) yes, there was a trick to it. If you look in my left hand, you will see a small bag. In that bag is Burro Treats. I put a LONG treat in my mouth. And even if it looks like my eyes were closed, let me assure you my left eye was WIDE open.
    6) No, no Burros were hurt while taking this picture.
    Any further questions, feel free to ask away !

    As many of you know, I've been on vacation visiting a couple of hospitals (including tours in ICU's) for 2+/- months.
    I wasn't in any condition to go into great details, but let me assure you, I am now closer to healthy then to dead (which for a while was a very real possibly).
    I CAN say that my condition involved a simple (simple..ME?), gall stone removal, a MASSIVE infection, medically induced coma, and other ugly stuff.
    Which, I've said, can be now be found in The CHIT-CHAT Arena under the thread INJURIES ACCIDENTS AND ILLNESS Post # 57.

    My "newest" health issue, as of May Forth (May The Forth Be With You) is a hernia at the operation site of my gallbladder site.
    I have an appointment with the surgeon tomorrow.
    As most of you know, Any surgery is (for me) inherently very risky
    with unknown side effects each time.
    I'll keep you posted as I learn anything.

    I've been in & out of surgery again for said hernia and again had some side effects and posted them in a brief note on INJURIES, ACCIDENTS, AND ILLNESSES Post # 75


    Thanks to all of you for your thoughts, prayers, PM's, etc.

    My dogs give everyone their sad puppy dog eyes and it melts MISS KITKAs heart and she gives back The Win !
  8. Malibu Creek State Park?

    Whew ! Now I don't feel so bad. As explained, the route is POSSIBLE, but I don't know if it's something DOABLE in a day. The bus alone is 2 hrs. 20 min. round trip. Plus all the waiting around for connecting pickups. May I suggest driving if at all possible. Just checked another idea. You can take UBER ! I have no phone number, but if you type in uber, after a few tries you'll find the thread that will ask you starting point and destination. The basic plan is $36 - $45 and depending how much flair you want, that can go up past $300 each way. If you HAVE to travel by public transportation THIS (in my opinion) is the way to go. It can't be that much more that my last post suggestion, and this way you will have a lot longer at the Park. I hope this helps.

    Waking up REALLY early tomorrow, so taking my night time pills now. So I'm calling on an early win.

    My computer is acting better so I just need to get back in the habit of being here more so I can Be The Last Poster To Win !
  12. Malibu Creek State Park?

    Driving straight thru is 1 hr. 7 min/42.5 miles. Here are the phone numbers I've come up to help you and how to get you there. Metrolink 323)466-3876: Pasadena to Los Angeles (Union Station). Amtrack 800)872-7245: (Orange line): Union Station to Van Nuys Metro Bus 213)626-4455 (Orange Line). These should be your changes Warner, 161, Oxnard, Angora The bus trip should have taken about an hour or so. You are now about 3 miles to where you need to go. Cab 866)827-8646 to go the last 3 miles. OH NO !!!!!! I just looked at your posting date ! I'm supposing you no longer need the information ! Well this is what happens when my OCD is in full swing. I'm thinking the trip would have taken most of your day just getting there and back anyway. Just by chance you still are planning on going, call all the numbers to make sure you can find connecting modes of transportation.
