No Jingle Bells... At Least Not in September

Before my PET scan in Houston, I went to Cracker Barrel for dinner and BOY was I shocked at what I saw: Not one, not two, but THREE Christmas trees decorated to the hilt... as if we were days from the BIG holiday. Wal-Mart is usually the one putting up Christmas ornaments near Oct. 31 or as quickly after as possible -- BUT NOT THIS EARLY. 

Autumn, my favorite season. I want to enjoy it. COME ON!  

The Cracker Barrel thing shocked me. 

In fact, this Healing Redhead got a bit hotheaded! 

Yeah, sometimes it doesn't take much. Plus, I was hours from a Houston appointment.*

See, here's the thing: it doesn't reflect Cracker Barrel's seemingly laid-back, enjoy-the-moment and reminiscence-with-family-and-friends 'tude it serves up alongside country gravy and collard greens. Or maybe it is just me. It's those dang rocking chairs on the wooden front porch! One whispered something - it was an eek or two - to me in its back-n-forth motion in the warm even'n breeze. After all, it was the FIRST of SEPTEMBER when I dined at the restaurant. No autumn decor to see! Plenty of gifts and treasures from the North Pole, though. Did an employee or corporate person get ahead of themselves on the chart or the to-do list? The only sense of normalcy in the gift shop and restaurant that day (and I know some will disagree) was hearing Clint Black's voice. At least he wasn't singing Jingle Bells. 

* I see a plethora of doctors, surgeons, and nurses and do scans for Schannomatosis at MD Anderson. Fun. 


  1. Just wanted to say hello! Found this via Kristi's blog and wanted to pop in. I also have NF1, diagnosed as a young child, probably around 2. I've been lucky it's been so mild all my life but now I'm a few months from 30 and am starting to wonder. But here we are anyway, you know? Looking forward to reading more!

  2. Irrespective of receiving daily oral or future injectable depot therapies, these require health care visits for medication and monitoring of safety and response. If patients are treated early enough, before a lot of immune system damage has occurred, life expectancy is close to normal, as long as they remain on successful treatment. However, when patients stop therapy, virus rebounds to high levels in most patients, sometimes associated with severe illness because i have gone through this and even an increased risk of death. The aim of “cure”is ongoing but i still do believe my government made millions of ARV drugs instead of finding a cure. for ongoing therapy and monitoring. ARV alone cannot cure HIV as among the cells that are infected are very long-living CD4 memory cells and possibly other cells that act as long-term reservoirs. HIV can hide in these cells without being detected by the body’s immune system. Therefore even when ART completely blocks subsequent rounds of infection of cells, reservoirs that have been infected before therapy initiation persist and from these reservoirs HIV rebounds if therapy is stopped. “Cure” could either mean an eradication cure, which means to completely rid the body of reservoir virus or a functional HIV cure, where HIV may remain in reservoir cells but rebound to high levels is prevented after therapy interruption.Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Lung Cancer,Breast Cancer,psoriasis,Colo-Rectal Cancer,Blood Cancer,Prostate Cancer,siva.Fatal Familial Insomnia Factor V Leiden Mutation ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Scoliosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity
