Escaped commieny posted on Veterans' Page & Militaria Time sensitive: On March 24, 2015, Representative Joe Wilson of South Carolina introduced H.R. 1594, a bill to repeal the requirement for reduction of survivor annuities under the Survivor Benefit Plan for military surviving spouses to offset the receipt of veterans Dependency and Indemnity Compensation.
This bill is in accordance with a longstanding DAV resolution, passed each year by the delegates to our National Convention. H.R. 1594 was referred to the House Armed Services Committee on March 24, 2015.
Please use the prepared email or draft your own to request that your Representative support this important bill and ask that it be brought to the floor for a vote and passed as soon as possible.
Thank you for all you do for veterans and their families.

Escaped commieny posted on Health & Diet Birdy, my DH had prostate cancer back in 2000, they gave us a DVD to watch to pick treatments, he said carp on that $#$# take the SOB out, they did and he is clean, prayers on the way, but don't worry. Actually he said the biopsy was more painful than the operation.

Balogreene It's amazing the strides they've made in Cancer Research. Prostate Cancer can be nothing at all, or everything. But, it is one they've made major strides on. My daddy was diagnosed with it in 1997, he died of a stroke. I just know, it's a diagnosis I don't want. Prayers for Hagar and Bird.

BirdsNest Thank you all. We had a slice of good news yesterday with the scan for the blood clot-all gone!! Now they can use the right arm to take blood and use it for the high speed infusion today. Ct scan and bone scan today, doctor tomorrow.
BirdsNest He started hormone therapy yesterday and will soon begin radiation. Colonoscopy scheduled for April 1. No rheumatoid arthritis,no gout, latest test showed no Lyme(?? ), and no blood clot. Today we are both exhausted from tests, trips to the pharmacy,and doctor visits. And juggling the scheduling of tests and appts. I worked on the raised bed today and got it ready to go, soil is nice and sifted and leveled. Wanted to start on another but just too tired. We had a good supper last night and will eat leftovers tonight plus some freshly steamed broccoli and cauliflower.

Balogreene My dad serviced and sold X-Ray equipment for 40 years, when it came time for prostrate cancer treatment, he opted for radioactive implants! I don't think they do that any more, but, radiation is not deadly in the correct dosage, and he figured that was better than Chemo. Best of luck, and lots of prayers.
It is also good he doesn't have those other things. Blood clots are scary, I throw them occasionally, and end up having a heart attack, glad his is gone.

MeiDei Had thought to watch this in increments but was so captivated that when I went to pause it for another day - found only 10 minutes remained. Wonderful presentation proclaiming how awesome our God is. Sharing this with my email friends, so glad you posted it.
