    Rhonda - Cheers! Wooo-Hoooo! So happy for you.

    HERO...I'm not sayin' nothin' -- durh!---I can't help myself! Go make that appointment.

    Easier said than done, I realize. Everytime I see my doctor it's another test..okay, I'm not helping things here...sorry. How about the old cliche` "Just DO it!" ?? Did that help??

    Shel - good luck - I'll be sending you good thoughts!

    Shel,

    Yes, lots of luck to you but you won't need it. You'll be fine. I'll look forward to seeing your toast. I know, nothing will help those nerves, but once it's over, it's over. How's that for wisdom of the ages.

    Well this breaks my heart:

    Dark soya sauce healthier than red wine: study advertisement
    Jun 06 (Reuters) - Dark soya sauce, widely used in east Asia, may prove to be more effective than red wine and vitamin C in combating human cell damage, researchers in Singapore said.
    Scientists found that the sauce -- derived from fermented soya beans -- contains antioxidant properties about 10 times more effective than red wine and 150 times more potent than vitamin C, Singapore's Strait Times reported on Saturday.

    Antioxidants -- found in red wine, fruits and vegetables -- counter the effects of free radicals, unstable atoms that attack human cells and tissues. Free radicals have been linked to the aging process as well as a range of ailments including Parkinson's disease, cancer and heart disease.

    The National University of Singapore study also found that the sauce improved blood flow by as much as 50 percent in the hours after consumption.

    "There's a preventative aspect, showing that it may potentially slow down the rate of cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases.

    The nerve, soya sauce better then red wine??? They have to re-do that test. Tell me it isn't so.

    I still think I'd prefer my glass of Echo Domani Merlot to a glass of soya sauce!!

    Can you imagine going on a soya taste testing spree? Some research news just shouldn't be in print. And why did they pick on red wine to compare it to? As you can see, I'm not over it. I'm going to have to breathe in a bag or something.

    Go breathe in a bag!!! Hang on Rosemary!!! And no -- a soya tasting spree is definitely NOT appealing!!

    Soya sauce...okay, I like that in a stir-fry but I don't want a steady diet of it. And now no red wine and the antioxidants in my favourite fruits are no good either?!? But my heart...I use the red wine for my heart...which makes me think I'm going to have a very healthy heart in a very wrinkled, aged body.

    I'm sticking with the red wine, I'll put soya sauce in my stir fry and hope for the best.

    Sherry, Heavens, don't even think that. It just has more antioxidants then the fruit and wine.

    ooohhh okay...that's chemo brain for you, even months later..I still have shuttles that don't connect!!! I'm getting all confused on my free radicals and antioxidants...and if soya sauce has more, then tonight I'll have stir fry, red wine and blueberries for dessert...Pam's pinot noir sounds good, but I've got a half bottle of cabernet sauvignon....

    All right, if hubby is cracking up at the Samantha parallel then you've got to dish...seriously!! Kim's a good Canadian girl too you know!! Thinking about that -- I remember telling my "girls night out group" about my bc over drinks (there are 4 of us) and told them I'm now Samantha...they got that part, but in truth, they told me I'm more like Charlotte!! So I'll have 2 -- one for me, and one for you at 5:00 p.m. and say "here's to Shel, she did it, she's gonna make it" and if you tell me your husband looks like Smith, I will seriously be going, "you rock on girlfriend!!"

    shel-try not to watch the bc episodes, although I've watched those over and over. You need something a little more cheerful. Well since you'll be playing Samantha, slip in an "adult" movie. lol. Then you and sherry will lots to dish about.
    Seriuosly, good luck w/ sx. I'll be thinking of you.
    edit: just as I hit send I realized the abbreviation for surgery, looks like a typo for sex. Ha Ha!
