    Duane,

    Your posts are particularly close to home for me right now. My brother was diagnosed in early October with small cell carcinoma of the lung that spread to his bladder and one kidney. He passed away 12 weeks later on Dec. 20 th.
    This particular type of lung cancer has no cure. It effects about 15% of the lung cancer patients. In this particular case the treatment with very old chemo that was initially developed for testicular cancer (a drug I personally worked on some 40 years ago early in my career in pharmaceutical research and development) had no effect and most likely hastened the end.
    He knew there was only hope to extend his own pain for a few more months by taking the drugs, but decided he wanted to be there for his family a little longer if he could. He was courageous not for himself but for those he was leaving behind.
    The human spirit is something to behold. Good luck my friend, you have a new life, live each and every day to it's fullest.
    Most of all take time to smell the roses along your journey.

    Larry

    That's a rough time, Larry - so sorry to hear about your brother. It's a very hard thing to lose someone from a slowly wasting disease.

    Hi Duane,

    I'm finding your posts about business even more interesting and educational than those you have written about furniture. I'm a salesman at a plywood company in Connecticut and have big plans on either buying out my boss or starting my own company. We seem to share an appreciation for conservative business practices that so few seem to follow. I wish you good health and many happy years ahead!

    Thank You Fearless Leader and
    Godspeed
