Welcome to this week’s edition of Weekend Wonderings. I hope that everyone has enjoyed their 4th of July celebrations and are finding relaxing family time this weekend. Grab whatever beverage that you need and let’s proceed.
Obviously, a cancer patient goes through numerous and profound physical and emotional changes during treatment. Here is a list of several physical changes to expect.
Here is a great pic of the new James Hospital framed by a rainbow.
Finally, here is a brief video introducing the BMT (Bone Marrow Transplant) Unit at the new James.
Happy Birthday – Well, America, despite your warts and wrinkles, you’re looking pretty good for being 238 years old. I don’t know how you’ve done it, although I can guess, you’ve aged well.
Much Ado – We had some internal emails back-and-forth earlier this week on football recruiting announcements, etc. There was quite a bit of internet activity midweek after the announcement of Ohio State’s two latest football commitments. There were quite a few, as in a “lot”, of page views to various sports sites, including ours. First, for those of you who stopped by, thank you. Mike did out together a nice article, didn’t he.
This is well and good for Ohio State football fans, events like this provide a preview of incoming (eventually) Buckeye student-athletes. With this latest round of announcements, we are pinning our hopes of OSU’s football success on the decisions of teenage boys. If you’re a parent, you know the only thing more erratic than an arrhythmic heart beat, it’s teenagers’ potential coming to fruition. It’s great to be excited about the talents of incoming players, but let’s not get too worked up until they’ve had a couple years under their belts.
My only point is I doubt there was the accompanying hoopla when top scholar-students accept scholarships. For example, here at tBBC, we have two people who have accomplished their PhD’s and another about to begin the journey. I’ll have to check with them to see if there were big media events when they announced their university choices.
Sweet Home… Midwest – I’m wrapping up an online defensive driving course. It’s not quite “15 minutes = 15%”, but it’s similar. The videos had a familiar sound to them. For example, “vehicle” was not pronounced as ‘ve-ickle’, but as ‘vee-hickle”. Good times, good memories.
Here are the cosmic rockers, The Moody Blues, singing Question in Wembley Stadium in 1984. This was obviously before Margot Al-Harazi blew it up..
