Support PKD Cure

Before we get to the funny stuff, here's a short announcement about pending legislation. I have polycystic kidney disease PKD. I urge you to support the following bill, which should benefit those who have PKD and those who carry the genetic trait.

Help Pass Genetic Non-Discrimination Legislation in the U.S. Senate!

This is what we've been working for ... Now you can make a difference in the lives of 12.5 million people, worldwide, with PKD by taking part in a highly-important Action Alert to ensure the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act passes the U.S. Senate and becomes law!

If approved, the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act would protect individuals like PKD patients from discrimination in health insurance policies and employment on the basis of their genetic information. This legislation will reduce concerns about the potential for discrimination in hiring and in the availability and cost of health insurance - in addition to encouraging PKD patients to take advantage of genetic testing, new therapies and genetic research.

This legislation has already passed the U.S. House. Help us get it through the Senate. A treatment and cure for PKD is within our reach - you can help!

Thanks for supporting legislation, Bill R.

Now the fun stuff:

The North has Bloomingdales, The South has Dollar General
The North has coffee houses, The South has Waffle Houses.
The North has dating services, The South has family reunions.
The North has switchblade knives, The South has Lee Press-on Nails.

You bring Coke into my house, it better be brown, wet, and served over ice.

There is no such thing as "lunch". There is only dinner and then there is supper.

This is for anyone who lives in Atlanta, Georgia, has ever lived in Atlanta, has ever visited Atlanta, ever plans to visit Atlanta, knows anyone who already lives in Atlanta, or knows anyone who has ever heard of Atlanta.
Atlanta is composed mostly of one-way streets. The only way to get out of downtown Atlanta is to turn around and start over when you reach Greenville, South Carolina.

There is the story of a pastor who got up one Sunday and announced to
his congregation, "I have good news and bad news The good news is we
have enough money to pay for our new building program. The bad news is
it's still out there in your pockets."

I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older; then it dawned on me..they're cramming for their final exam. Check out my Bible link. It's not the only game in town, but I like it. Good way to check up on all those scripture quoters - see if they are on target.

Have you noticed since everyone has a camcorder these days no one talks about seeing UFOs like they used to?
