Weโ€™re all so thankful for the community heroes helping out after the horrific tornadoes this past weekend.  The first responders, police, fire, EMS, as well as neighbor helping neighbor, even if you donโ€™t live next door.The images are devastating and heartbreaking.  Thank you to everyone helping those affected by this disaster.

That’s awesome, Brian. The biped has a friend who had two surgeries this fall for melanoma; they got it all on the second one and she’s cancer-free too. Such a relief and definitely something for which to be very, very thankful.

We hope you’re continuing to do well, Brian. โ™ฅ

I am very very happy your dad is cancer free. We redheads need to keep vigil on melanoma. We are susceptible to sun and its effects. And while we had wild winds…the tornado activity was a few miles off. We just had 70 or so mi. per hour winds right here where we live. However, a few miles away, trees down everywhere and things turned over. .
