I am so inspired by Paulette Leaphart and her recent walk from Mississippi to Washington DC to raise awareness of breast cancer, and her MX scars were exposed for the world to see! She said, "Yellow is the new pink. We're taking lemons and making lemonade." She was also featured in Beyonce's recent piece, Lemonade.

Hi, Bride -- I don't know why I'm just seeing your post now! I'm doing well! Recovered from 2015 surgery, just had a clear MRI, getting on with life. How about you?

What does this mean: "BCO is now allowing a commercial company to track you."

Okay, LAstar, BCO had partnered with outside folks who were/are (?) being allowed to track us here and across the web, or so I was told. BCO was getting paid for our information.

Better late than never...

And just to make you smile:


Yeah me and Emmylou:)
