    Not much to tell (yeah right), I restarted my life about 13 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.

    I have been hospital/ER free for over three years and counting ! As of about July 2018 "they" rethought some of my medicines and my OCD and some other issues of the mind are getting better.

    As of the end of 2018 my Doctor changed one of my meds. and I am thinking much clearer now, I feel like "a real boy" (LOL) again. I am no longer in a fog all the time, like I've felt for the last 11 years !

    At the tail end of 2018 my Doctor changed one of my meds. and I am thinking much clearer now.

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

    It is now November 2020, and I am doing MUCH better ! I am, as my wife calls me "A REAL BOY" again. My brain is back to normal (?), but it appears I may always have memory issues. My memory is good for about two weeks, then things start falling thru the black hole of my mind !
    As of today I am able to come back here and start being a Mod. again, I also Mod for about eight other sites, I do not remember exactly (see, it is the memory thing again), I Admin. for two sites, one we are rebuilding from the ground up !!
    So IF anyone EVER reads this far down, leave me a message, and I will tell you what sites I am on, they are ALL great sites !!

  1. Just by the name Little Sheldon, it tells us it's going after TBBT watchers. Otherwise it might be called Little Tony or Little Mike. "They" picked the Sheldon name for a reason.
  2. For the last 9 years I've been told I've had OCD & PSTD but it never seemed to fit. Last year "they" gave me new titles that may fit Sheldon as well as they do me. Instead of OCD it's now called Adjustment Disorder (I HATE changes and Certain things HAVE TO BE A CERTAIN WAY) just like Sheldon. I am so bad that if I order a Bloody Mary, I only want 3 ice cubes in it and if it has more than that, I'll send it back. And then there is Cognitive Impairment , I forget most everything that I get upset of things I SHOULD know, but on the other end of the scale, Sheldon remembers so much he gets distracted by non-important stuff (to him). AND YES, I HAVE BEEN TESTED !
  3. Exactly my point JOYCERAYE. No matter how smart the child, their brain/memory works differently than an adults, so things will be remembered differently.
  4. You make what at first seem to be a lot of valid points. However, whenever I listen to my wife and her siblings (of which there are seven) you would think they all came from different families. They all have different memories of the same events. So I'm thinking that at least some actual events that happened to Young Sheldon might be different then the way he remembers them now, even with HIS memory.
  5. I'm not sure I agree. I think that "LITTLE SHELDON" will be a stand alone show where no BBT knowledge will be needed.
  6. How different would everyone's opinion be if there had never been a TBBT show to begin with, and there was never a Sheldon ? This would just be about a genius kid and his ups and downs of just trying to fit in a world full of morons (in his eyes) and wild chickens. Everyone seems to be grading the new show on who Sheldon is going to become and not how he got there. Grade the show on it's own merits and not on what the future becomes.
  7. For the past 10 seasons we have watched the "Lego" Sheldon have bits and pieces added on to get the Sheldon we have today. How wonderful it would be to see "Lego" Sheldon being made from the ground up. I'm all for the prequel !
  8. MICHAEL, you will be missed !

  9.  For the second day in a row there hasn't been any birthdays. Is this due to another "upgrade" or was everyone just too busy nine months ago ?

        Just Asking,


  10. I liked Raj better when he couldn't talk to girls at all.
  11. TEAM : CINNAMON ! Women can be...well you know the rest .
  12. Hey TRIPPER,

    When ever you get a chance we are ready for 38,000 !

    Thank You,


  13. Raj will take any girl that will have him. And yes all the while he is overlooking his soulmate CINNAMON ! I would like to see more RAJAMON !
  14. I believe the last episode was S7 E15 Locomotive Manipulation with Vvette the Vet. Not including "Emily or Cinnamon" jokes.
