at White Sands National Park up in New Mexico. We haven't gone yet but
plan on it soon. Thought you'd like this cute pic!
AWWW! He's so cute! Thanks so much, Brent!
From Jack Nelson ('54) of Northern VA - 02/04/12 - "Thyroid cancer":
|From Alvin Mizelle
A personal experience of his wife, Jean, and some lessons to be learned.
Just a little more information that may be beneficial.
Jean has a thyroid nodule and went to a surgeon in Norfolk for an exam as recommended by her physician. The surgeon recommended a biopsy even though test results did not prove or disprove that it was cancerous. The biopsy would remove half of the thyroid and if it was cancerous, they would remove the other half. This wasn't something that Jean wanted to go through as it would mean that she would have to be on medication for the rest of her life. She sought another opinion from a physician who concluded that maybe she should have the biopsy. Still not convinced, she went to another physician/holistic doctor who has taught many seminars on thyroid issues. His examination revealed that the nodule was not on the thyroid but next to it. He also concluded that it was not cancerous and could treat her accordingly. Not really knowing what to believe, she agreed to the treatment which was all natural supplements. The nodule shrunk tremendously, to the point where it was hard to detect. She then went back to the second physician for another examination and he said she was fine and gave her another appointment in 6 months. That examination proved to be OK also. Another appointment was set up for 1 year which she just had last week. Still nothing to be concerned about but will be rechecked in another year. It pays to get a second opinion. It may not always prove to be beneficial but it doesn't hurt. We need to trust our doctor. However, a doctors panel which set out to determine the number 1 cause of death in the US (thinking it was cancer), concluded that it was mainstream medicine; hospitals, doctors and medications. Doctors were the #3 cause which was based on misdiagnosis and improperly prescribed medications. It's scary! We believe that it is important to practice prevention and take charge of our own health. We take no prescription drugs and have had doctors tell us that we are in great shape. Even had one tell me that he needed to come to me for advice. Doctors are great and we desperately need them. However, it is like any other field. You have good ones and bad ones. Hopefully, when and if the time comes that we need medical attention, with God's help we will select the good ones.

From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC AND From Jack Nelson ('54) of Northern VA - 02/04/12 - "Matchstick Fleet...Some people have a lot more time - and talent - than I do!":
Simply amazing, simply amazing - there are no other words I can offer.
I am sending this to show you what one geezer can do with his free time. Of course, one has to start when they are around
17 years old.
WOWZERONI! That makes my poor eyes ache to even think of it! Thank you, Gentlemen!
WOWZERS! How cool is this?!? Thanks so much, Buster!
From Eva Ellis Madagan ('61) of FL - 02/05/12 - "Picture worth 1000 words":
Picture is precious - and the story behind it we should never forget!
Marine LCPL Carpenter and his family!
to say, to me, this is the most touching, heart wrenching, meaningful
photo I have seen.
His father, Marine LCPL Andrew Carpenter, gave his life defending our country in Afghanistan on February 19, 2011, three weeks before his son was born.
Baby Landon's mom, Crissie Carpenter of Columbia, TN, wants his story to be known.
Take a moment to share this photo with your friends and reflect on the price of freedom.
Never forget the price of freedom.
Thank you so very much, Eva!
