Tomorrow begins a long stretch of no blogging, no reading your blogs, and no emailing......I hope you're all able to make it through without me until after October 27. I will be posting a pic or two along with an audio greeting from the ship....so keep checking back.
Tomorrow we board this:
To go to the beautiful city of San Diego where we'll rendezvous with our friends:
The next day, we'll board our cruise vessel...the MS Zaandam:
And then we'll spend the next 15 days cruising across the Pacific Ocean to and from Hawaii.
See you all when we return.

A group has failed to garner enough signatures to put Oregon's upcoming Civil Union legislation on the ballot for public vote. What that means is that beginning January 1, Oregon will join the ranks of states offering Domestic Partnerships for its citizens. A bit of hope in our dreary world.
And from my friends at Gay Rights Watch....

Sometimes, going to church isn't very glamorous. Especially in this day and age. When there is so much to point fingers and poke fun at. And there is. This is one reason that I still believe in justice and fighting for it. However you do it, or who you're doing it with, doesn't matter. Check out the rest of the ads here.
I have an OPEN MRI scheduled for tomorrow morning. After my last fiasco, I wasn't sure it was ever going to happen. But this new "open" machine is actually very beautiful and inviting.....and I'm actually looking forward to getting it done.
And on Wednesday we leave on our 15-day cruise to Hawaii with a great group of ten people from London, Philadelphia, and Portland.

I'll update you on my most recent health situations, tell you about a great website for weather/astronomy observer buffs, and make you all jealous when I tell you where we're headed next week.

So, I'm on the search for a completely open MRI that my insurance will cover. There are "normal/standard" MRI machines (40cm/1.3 feet/15.75 inches.....Yikes!!). There are also "open bore" machines (which is the one I tried on Saturday) (50cm/1.62 feet/19.69 inches). And then there are "open" MRI machines that have openings on all four sides. And, my little blossoms, don't forget that one's body has to fit in there too....so that can quickly reduce the amount of space available depending on how many pieces of pizza you've eaten recently.
Following the MRI results, I will probably be referred to a neurologist and possibly an orthopedic dude as well. I can see this being a long haul. But at least I know now that I'm not into bondage. Nope. Not this guy.
