    Yeah, the Laugh In routine has gotten old, and Spock is definitely more precise in his vocabulary...

    What "fascinates" me about it is that I've been treated for staph infections twice, with the 2nd one being done like I had tuberculosis, with the one antiboiotic for 2 weeks, the other for 6.

    That is interesting. 4 years before I had to stop working I went in for outpatient surgery to have my gallbladder removed I ended up with a staph infection on my nose from the oxygen mask. I have always seen that (the gallbladder problem) as the beginning of my illness. Maybe it was actually the staph.
