I hope you appreciate I am not being hyper critical, but your post about Lucentis will receive far more chance of comments in the discussion section as opposed to the blog section of the main page. If I were you would move it so it will gain better exposure.

I was wondering if you ever found any information on people who will help with the cost of getting a DAD. I found a low cost way thats way lower than the $7000 to 10000 that they tend to cost. A local woman here does it. She breeds labs specifically to be a DAD. They have the scent by the time they are 6 to 7 weeks old and she helps you train the dogs for a low cost.

I saw your post on having a toe amputated. I just had my second toe amputated this past Friday. The other was about 3 yeears ago. I hate this disease.

Hi, saw your comments about: " I'm not a fan of any alternative meat(tempeh,tofu etc) except seitan but I'm trying to find a way to make seitan can taste more better.."
Ever make it Gluten/Seitan yourself?
