none of my family e-mails me, but they text sometimes.  my grandma just learned how to about 6 months ago, and they are usually something cute on holidays.

my dad replaces "you" with "u" and it bugs the crap out of me.  he's rough ridin' 52 years old, spell the whole word...

Don't think so, but that would explain my grizzly look.

She probably does but waxes it really well so nobody knows about it, and was afraid you were letting the secret out

My 90 year-old Grandpa sends quite a bit of email, and when he does he always just puts random words in quotations. V. weird.

Quote
Dear Mr. "Nomad,"

Last night I spent getting mailing ready for this
month's  two birthdays and two anniversaries. "Whew."
But, I couldn't finalize yours.  Where in the world
will you receive "Snail-mail" on your birthday?
 ....Your Dad's solution is to just send it
to him and he'll "take care of it."  I'll plan to
mail it on the 15th ... to?

?/?/?

Love,
Grandpa

i gotta admit, this one touched my heart.

Yeah, for the poor grandpa who is trying to send his horrible grandson a birthday card, but the horrible grandson doesn't even keep grandpa in the loop with where he lives. Good God SB, you can't do that crap to the greatest generation.

Wrong, it's all annoying.

The other thing I've learned from this thread is that all our moms are the same.

I think I was telling my mom to drink plenty of WATER on the fourth. She always drinks too much wine and sleeps the nite away.

Quote from: Grandpa
Bonanza!!!!  Back in 2008, for whatever reason I forget
now, American Express compensated me for something that
I had done, they paid me in Gift Cards to be used at an
Olive Garden Restaurant.  I put them in a "safe" place which I
never did find until yesterday.  I checked--and they are still valid.
They are more (in dollars) than enough to pay for a nice Sunday
lunch for all of us.  I'm assuming everybody will be too tired to go out
to eat Saturday night?  Up for a filling Sunday Lunch?
Kansans--your call!!
Love,
Grandpa

I agree with you on this 100%. I love this thread, but it's  because I just have to imagine what my parents or grandparents would say. Not  :cry: , but  :eek: and  :lol: .

My Dad has officially reached the point where what he says is so crazy its cute. I just want to pinch his cheek and say thanks for looking out for me.

I've bolded my favorite parts


Quote
Kids,


1)  I will pay you to see the movie 2016.  Email me the cost of tickets (and a pizza) to go see the movie.

2)  I've switched from bee stings to Southern Copperhead venom in my quest to strengthen my immune system and avoid getting arthritis.  For the past year and a half I've been doing the venom.  I switched from a bee sting per week to a "whiff" of venom every couple months.  If I go much past that the pain in my hands reminds me that I am 'over due'.  I will increase to a 'whiff' every month now that I know the wear off time frame.

I am informing you of what I am doing.  I am NOT recommending anyone else do this nor am I recommending this for anyone that gets cancer.  I am experimenting to confirm that a "hot" immune system does prevent the onset of diseases.  Specifically I am testing this particular venom because of the protein in the venom which appears to fight cancer.  My ultimate quest is to push the limits of longevity - not just age but being physically and mentally sound at ancient ages, maybe even past 120.  My mentor made it past 100.  I am watching a second mentor now.  We shall see.  One thing is certain.  I've successfully prevented the onset of arthritis in me (my hands) for about 10 years now between the bee and S. Copperhead venom.

Health wise, you all are not far behind me.  Remember, bee pollen and venom work with your own immune system to make it stronger, a natural combination.  Drugs work as a band aid, relieving symptoms at the cost of introducing toxins into your body which then must be flushed out.  Most elderly people today take so many drugs, they run the risk of drugs reacting to each other causing toxic combinations in the body.  That's the herd of sheep mentality, what most people will do.  For me, "no thanks".  I'll take the pain of a bee sting (or other).

I'm starting to see more research is being done on this venom and cancer on the internet.

Below find some basic research information.

================================================================================= 

Research info

This is a set of comments from a story on the Southern Copperhead venom.

I think these comments were based on the same single event.

I do not think the lady became cancer free, just the tumors quit growing for several months.

Note she did get anti venom treatment to lesson the harmful impact of a bite.

Copperhead venom bites are one of the most painful snake bites.
There are (5) species of copperhead snakes.
The Southern Copperhead has a special protein in it's venom which suppresses the growth of tumors.

Contortrix Contortrix is the Southern Copperhead.  Venom type, differs from other copperheads some.

Agkistrodon conrotrix, general copperhead family, has a hemorrhagic toxin venom.  (Can make you sweat blood, scary.)


Know that there are 3 categories of venom, depending upon how it works -

Neuro toxins
Hemo toxins
Myto toxins

==============================
============================= 

Here is the link to the entire video and the following blog comments below -

Our neighbors sister had cancer and was terminal so bad she was on hospice. She was bit by a copperhead and now is cancer free.

This is true I am the neighbor of Keith who sister was bit by a copperhead. I will try to explain this in short version. My sister lives in TX was diagnosed with Stage 4 of Sacroma cancer and was on chemo treatments for about two months. They had told her there was nothing more they could do for her and stopped chemo she had also been on hospice for several months. Even with the bad news she had not given up on living. My sister is not one to sit around and feel sorry for herself she was determined to get her lawn cut by herself. She had gone outside to get on her riding lawn mower, thats when she was bit by a copperhead. After her snake bite she only got stronger and stronger and actually was taken off hospice because she was doing so well. I would say that the snake bite froze the spread of the cancer and she did get better; however her six turmors are still there. The snake bite happened around March 08 and just recently is experiencing some growth in one of the tumors. The doctors are possibly looking at doing some radiation. I would like to somehow get a hold of this Frank Markland and maybe have him look at her medical records. Estell as far as it being safe I would say no don’t go out and find a snake if we could get some information from this Frank Markland maybe he could give us some answers. I haven’t had any luck in finding a way to reach him.

Dottie says:

I am the sister, Dottie, that was bit by a copperhead snake. The doctors were very amazed that I had got better. The doctors had only given be about two months to live. I did not look for the snake. This is a miracle! I was sitting, very tired and sick. Something told me to look at the lawnmower, It took me along time to walk to the mover and I reached to the tire. At the time that is when the snake bit my finger! I was in ICU for two days. They were concerned on the chemo and the snake venom combination but it worked both ways. It helped not losing my finger and the cancer had froze, or stopped growing. Sarcoma cancer is a very fast growing tumors. I believe it was in God’s hands in helping me with the cancer. I don’t think it was time for God to let me go.

Bonnie says:
January 6, 2009 at 7:53 am
I am also a sister to Dottie. When Dottie was a bit by the copperhead, she was whisked off to the hospital in an ambulance. They immediately gave her an anti-venom something or other. Obviously, there was still enough venom in her system to stall the growth of this soft-tissue sarcoma.
I believe Professor Markland is on to something. Please tell us more. Dottie is very willing to be a test case.
