    Very sorry for your loss Borgo.

    I never personally knew anyone who had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer before last November. Then a good friend of my brother's got it. I have known him since he joined my fantasy football league 8 years ago. He was about the nicest guy you could ever meet. 46 years old, wife and a 15 year old daughter and my brother said in the 20 years they worked together, he didn't think he had ever taken a sick day. He passed away about 2 months ago.

    Scary and horrible disease.

    Thanks, cross. Condolences for the loss of your pal, as well. What a terrible scenario for him and his family.

    The scariest part of the disease is that once it's diagnosed, it has almost always spread to the liver and lymph nodes, which is, usually, a quick death sentence. I still can't wrap my mind around how fast everything went for my Mom after the diagnosis. Now, I have my Dad to worry about without his mate for the last 60+years. F**k.

    Thanks, JW. Even after a few months, I'm still not back to being myself. I know it's great to have family around the sick family member, but watching a parent die, literally, right in front of you, changes a person forever.

    Don't worry, maybe posting some Rihanna shots will cheer me up.

    Not true, a false urban legend. Grew up 10 minutes from a Korvettes, as a kid probably went there on a weekly basis with the family.

    "According to Korvette's founder, Eugene Ferkauf, who died on June 5th, 2012, the name "E.J. Korvette" was coined as a combination of the initials of its founders (Eugene and Joe) and a re-spelling of the naval term corvette, a nimble sailing warship and later World War II sub-destroyer. Ferkauf's claim and the name pre-dating the Korean War by three years contradict an urban legend it was an acronym for "Eight (or Eleven) Jewish Korean War Veterans".[6]"

    Thanks, JS. Pancreatic is a horror show. No real test or effective therapies (very little money put toward research, as well). Mostly, palliative care and "the box".

    Ya, breast cancer at least you can fight, sometimes for years.

    Pancreatic is just so fast, it's astonishing.

    Thanks, WCO. Your Russian River Thread had me wistful for my years on the Left Coast. I did that canoe/inner tube trip down the Russian River many times. What a great way to spend the day, especially if you got to hit the wineries afterwards.

It is still unbelievably difficult to block out of my mind.


    I went through the exact same scenario with my mom...I truly feel your pain...

    LOL. Via an old Ouija Board, I just asked my departed Mom about how Steely Dan is regarded in the afterlife. In a nutshell, she intimated that God refers to Fagen and Becker as "the two talentless putzes". She went on to say that The Creator considers their successful musical careers a greater disappointment in humanity than when the Israelites first rejected Moses' presentation of the Ten Commandments.


    I am so sorry that you had to endure that nightmare, too. Deepest sympathies.

    Or not.
    They both love Asian fellows, what's the big deal. Man, racism and homophobia are all OVER this board.

    I am going to have to respectfully call you a doosh for hating on Steely Dan though. Respectfully.

    Thanks, southside. Hey, PB brought up Steely Dan, not me. (No offense taken.)
