"Thanks Tom - good advice - I'm doing just as you said and keeping it close to the vest. Close friends only. No casual acquaintances, storekeeps, clients, etc. I don't wanna be The Walking Dead. Would rather be despised than pitied. :] "

Heavy diagnosis - looking for manly advice.

Gentlemen - have been diagnosed with leukemia. Prognosis good (75% chance of remission), still, scares bejesus outta me.Am not sure what to do with family and friends. Absolutely, have looked up good old pals with whom I've fallen out of touch. Am appreciating mom'n dad more.

Dann Anthony replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.
""Dracula" always pleases anew, as does "Frankenstein." Both dense, compelling horror reads. "Frankenstein" is the more literary tale, while "Dracula" is just a pleasure."

Dann Anthony replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.
"It's worth revisiting. Just to ask, "Have I become so callow that I ignore what this book said?" "
