msb-0079 Back for more...

msb-0079 Back for more...

Feedback comes first so ... actually, feedback is just about all you're getting tonight as I've got lots to do.

I am slowly creating a voice for MDMH because he's too modest to use his own. (Yeah, sure ... No, I believe you... [<mutters: "Wuss...">] :-)

So until that's happened, you'll just have to listen to li'l ole "moi".

Out of deference to some of our listeners, I'll use something generic and not too country as background music...

"So, without further ado, here is MDMHvonPAs' Roundup 2006, 11, 10:

With this week, I think I'll get started by focusing on an AUSLANDER community and some general information blogs. At the top of the list is a LiveJournal community that has so many contributors it can safely go up against the Moonies or Latter Day Saints in the membership rolls. You will need an LJ account to comment, but they are free so go right ahead and register. Just be aware though that some of these folks are a bit rough around the edges so don't get turned off if you find that some of their blogs are 'For Friends Only'. A lot of recent Diagnosed MS folk travel through there..

Two other treasure troves of opinion and data that I've run across are Vicki who just posted about Disabled Skiing trips. You know, it has been a long time since I competed or even strapped any waxed slats to my feet but I might get motivated enough this year to give it a crack. At least I could show the Twin Tyrants of Turpitude that I'm just as good as they are at SOMETHING. Vicki also posts a lot of other information so make sure to visit her at least once a day. You never know what she might unearth.

My other breakthrough blog is a site by a fellow named Stu. I found out about him via Lauren's blog who is also a big Tysabri Proponent. She is making an excellent comeback into the world of 'Highly Mobile MSer'. Wish her luck with her progress. But back to Stu's World ... he has a few tips up for us folk that could probably be taken to heart by anyone. For such common sense things it's unfathomable why we can be so damn hard-headed about it. Take a gander at what he has, but his comments are closed for now so bide your time and say Howww-Deee! later.

On to Heather, who is having a bit of a rough time with her shots. She is getting better, but could use some real-life success stories to keep her hopes high. The rough times with the drugs are the windows in which we usually give up hope and fall off the wagon. I'm sure a little encouragement would go a long ways. Keep it up Heather, I want to run against you in the NY Marathon some day. Charles will be there to cheer us on for sure.

Mmmm, a bit more time for some of our snow-bound brethren. AK-45 Michelle is back from San Fransisco and is announcing that home is where the heart is. Looks like Alaska is a just as good of a place to be a 'Bike Bum' as the more temperate locales of central CA. Her flight was a bit rough on the courage front, but she made it back to the land of ice and snow in good spirits. Speaking of Golden Sun and Snow ... Sherry is making Lemon Snow Cones with her Golden Retriever for anyone who is interested. No? That's ok, she'll make more for you when you change your mind. And with that, I'll sign off and trundle off in the flash-flood rain of a Pennsyltucky fall. I'd wish for snow, but all you western folk stole it all."

Well there you are that was MDMHvonPAs' "Roundup". Yee Haa.

And to end us off, I'm playing "Brighter" by Eric Kjelland off of his "Everybody Falls" CD.

Follow the link and buy the album or suggest (no, put down that tire iron, I really meant suggest,) to everyone you within earshot that if they're interested, they can buy it at

That's for me tonight.

Yay for Mark-broadcasting :-)

Looked for Eric Kjelland on iTunes and he isn't there yet :-(

Charles-A. Rovira said...

Erik Kjelland. :-)

And sadly it wasn't Mark's voice (oops MDMHvonPA's voice,) but me, Charles-A.

We're just working out how its going to work.

Charles-A. Rovira said...

Oh, by the way its called podcasting.

It stands for Portable, On Demand.

Its the way we, the audience, started to change the perception of media after the introduction of TiVO.

We no longer have to sit down in front of the TV set or the radio, spot on the hour or we miss it.

Thanks to the internet, RSS and cheap computer power, we're in charge of our media instead of the other way around.

Thanks for continuing to promote the CD. The more the better! I am off now to go and check out these new bloggers. Take care
