Since October 2012 I have been fighting for my life. Since last April I have been unable to work due to the pain and the strength it takes to fight it and cope with chemotherapy, and the side effects, and bone mets. My wife Danielle has been working two jobs but there are seasonal layoffs in her profession and we are struggling to make ends meet because, even though I am covered by Mass Health, Insurance doesn't cover all of the expenses incurred in this situation. We spend hundreds of dollars a month on alternative medical treatments that are vital to my recovery but not covered by insurance. If you can help with even a dollar towards this, you will be a crucial part of my recovery. Please feel free to do whatever you can, any amount will make a difference. For those who can lend alternate forms of support, please remember that laughter is the best medicine and I am as corny as they come. Laughter and your friendship is more valuable to me than all the gold in the world.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Hello, Magoo. I came here via Kreepy Kastle and Bone Jangler. I'm sort of a horror host in training--lots of ideas cooking for a couple of years now about how and when to proceed to the next step. Until then, I'm an ambivalent poet, Facebook addict, and failed medical experiment (five different antidepressants couldn't help me). Take care. Sending positive vibes to you and D.

Well, Rob, that's a trick question. Since I have never actually driven the Mustang of my dreams which is a '66 Mustang, I suppose the correct answer is the 1979 RX-7 which I honestly have driven the hell out of, all the way from Tulsa to San Francisco and all over Northern California, and that baby really hugged the curves of Highway 101. If it weren't for you, Rob, I would have never known the pleasure! You da Man!
