   Oh Grace, English Comp is so exciting... Bet you will have some interesting essays though. Started reading Wendell Berry's books and it's nice to read of a simpler time and way of life. Waiting to get the new Jo Nesbo book at the library and the newest Camilla Lackberg book--I really like the foreign authors for crime/mystery. Finally go to read the latest Sue Grafton, "W Is for Wasted"--I love Kinsey Millhone. Good luck with your classes.

I am supposed to be doing sociology homework. Since I am online, tells ya how successful I am doing in making myself hunker down and do it...he he he

I started "the inquisitor's key" by Jefferson Bass yesterday. Finished up John Lescroart's " a plaque of secrets" yesterday while floating in the neighbors pool. Still getting in some reading time for pleasure as long as I don't camp out in front of the tv.

   I only read while sitting on the beach and I am still on Alex Cross James Patterson series. I hope to start on the women's murder mysteries soon.

   My garden is slow this year, but this morning I just did 9 pints of bread and butter pickles. I don't buy books--I love my local libraries and my card is good at all of them. How is school going?

I started a new series this summer and I really like the first book so far! If you are into sci fi/fantasy type books, might be worth picking up. "monster hunter international" by Larry Correia is the title. About a dude who survives a werewolf attack and then finds out that the "men in black" are real. Decently written and enjoyable I think

was hoping to read a ton of books on my 3 week break from classes but I keep getting distracted with tv and canning...lol

ok so it's not really summer but in my mind, it still is...he he he

halfway through "the immortal life of henrietta lacks" and really enjoying it. It's a story of the woman behind the famous HeLa line of cells used for research. Well written and very interesting

   Grace, Didn't her family sue for some of the proceeds?? I will have to look for this book. Now I'm reading the new Richard Jury book by Martha Grimes.

   Grace, I just finished reading the Henrietta Lacks book--talk about a lot of ethical issues. Wow it is a Brave New World in the research world. I really enjoyed reading about Henrietta and thought the researcher did a great job. Have you finished reading it yet? Makes me want to stay away from all medical facilities, but then that's my natural inclination anyway.

Yep I finished it!! I really enjoyed it. So often in medicine we forget about the real people behind any treatment/cure/disease.

Thankfully medicine has changed dramatically since her time. We still "like to get a sample of that" in medicine or want to take pictures and even the simplest we bring everyone into a room to look at something interesting though. It's how we learn. I don't think the original purpose of sampling her tumor had any intent other than medical curiosity. Yes it does suck that so much money has been made off of selling the HeLa line while her descendants don't even have healthcare. I get the anger behind that from the family but it was a different time then. As the book points out, that slope just gets slippier the more advanced science becomes. Personally, I don't see anything wrong with working out a deal with a biotech company if there is something special about you that they want to study that is likely to result in monetary return for them in the near future. Who could've predicted 50+ years ago what the HeLa line of cells would turn into though?

Informed consent for treatments, especially experimental treatments, is the standard now. I would never hesitate to participate in research (and I have participated in it as have my children). I have been in medicine long enough to know that what is experimental today, is the standard treatment tomorrow and know it's worthwhile. I do think though that acknowledging Henrietta for being the person the HeLa cell line came from is respectful and hopefully this book has shown that. I also think the author setting up a college fund for her grandchildren was a wonderful thing to do. That family had so much stacked against them from the gitgo with the extreme poverty they came from and anything to help change that is always a good thing

If you liked that book , I recommend Molly Caldwell Crosby's books - asleep and the american plaque. Both are medical based non-fiction stories that I enjoyed.

   Well I have participated in research. After my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, her dr asked all of us kids to donate blood for research--think they were working on genetic markers for breast cancer. Of course we were told we would never be told if we carried the gene. That was probably 20 years ago and my mom has been dead for 15 years now. Personally I have always felt her breast cancer was from working at Rocky Flats in Colorado--they made nuclear devices for all sorts of government projects--all stuff she couldn't ever talk about. Of course to get genetic testing for breast cancer now costs about $3,000 because the company patented the process. That just sucks that they can be the sole company to test for the marker and can charge so much, although I do realize how much research costs. Yes I will read Molly's books. My library will have to request them from a bigger library. At least I know I'll have something worthwhile to read besides my mysteries.

   Grace, We would have a hoot knowing each other. Anyway I bought a 2003 Trail-lite Ford Class B+ van yesterday to celebrate my 60th birthday. So we will be traveling next year. First to Phoenix for spring training for his beloved Cubs team. We really want to go out east too and I do have a cousin who lives in East Bangor, PA, so someday we will get out that way too. I did have my library order Molly's books for me. Hope your classes are going okay--I sure don't have the discipline to study any more. This old gal just wants to have fun!! And Raj, someday I'll get down your way too--I have not forgotten your invite.

School is a PIA but it's getting done...lol

New roof is on and siding is almost completed too. Insurance finally totaled the car from the hail storm too. Can't imagine how folks do this after big disasters

Settling in for my winter hibernation!! Currently reading a book "the ploughmen" by Kim Zupan. It's very cormac mccarthy-ish and so far is holding my interest.

ps rajah I can just move in with you right?
