Good dark and early morning from potentially wet Kingston, Ontario. It's 16C now and will hit 19C under showery skies. Yesterday I was late for my last radiation treatment. I opted to go up to the 401 to avoid the bottleneck on the causeway (which is undergoing repairs, so down to a single lane at the choke point, with traffic lights or workers controlling the direction of flow). So, of course, there were repairs on the 401, reducing westbound traffic from three lanes to one. And, also of course, there were traffic lights in town, inevitably red. Anyway, I finally got "done" and I'll consult with the doc in early September (wonder if there may be hormone treatment follow-up). I got to ring the bell with my final nuking team (and a cutout of Ryan Reynolds - apparently put there for patients who did not have anyone with them to celebrate). Super bunch of people from the screeners at the front, to the receptionist at the desk, to all the "hands on" folks. As one of the techs said when it was done, "We never want to see you again!" Got that right!
Bill, all the best on your radiation journey. Watch that water intake! You may find the reactions change as you go through the weeks. Forty nukes? Wow! You deserve a medal! I found the first weeks seemed to take long, but the final days flew by.
And last night was another Fiddler's Dream open mic from Phoenix, Arizona. some great songs - again.
Have a great day! (Hydrate!)

Good morning from rainy Sweden
That’s one of the best photos to see Paul R ! Congratulations. I’m six months into hormone deprivation therapy and am happy to talk about my experience with it if you wish.
Have a fantastic Friday everyone.
Here’s another sunrise photo from my living room window. This one is of Lowell’s city hall.
Good Morning from overcast and froggy Northeast Wisconsin. Congrats to Paul on ending his treatments. Hoping all goes well in September.
We ended our weekly trivia contest with a win that ended up with the highest score anyone has seen. Only missed one question and beat second place by 92 points. Now on to regional competition. We have a rather unusual team. 2 couples over 70 years, 1 teen that is occasionally replaced by his younger sister and their Mom. We are going to be the team to beat next year when the contest starts again.
To all you US members, have a good Holiday and think about all those who have given their lives.
