I’m going to live and the dark cloud is gone.

They got it all.

I’ll see the oncologist again in November. No CT or PET scans. There is only a…

The M1 processor on the new Mini should make it your first choice if you are tight on bux. Get whatever keyboard, mouse, and display you can afford.

I don’t remember the first time it happened. An introduction followed by the inevitable question, “Where’s your band?”
