Fellow Yargbians--as some of you may have noted I have been posting some comments on other blogs--I have been on a rather long journey for the last year that included, inter alia, a marriage dissolution, a recurrence of my prostate cancer, a move from the pacific NW to Memphis Tennessee where I am now working as a catastrophic planner for the Central US Earthquake Consortium, and am, in general, back in circulation.
But what would life be if it werent interesting!
It's the pits being an epidemiologist, because I know the 10 year odds of survival post op from prostate cancer--yuck. I am reminded of Samuel Johnson's aphorism about focusing attention when one is to be hanged in a fortnite. Bottom line: you can expect some gallows humor from me.
Memphis is wonderful: low cost of living, housing prices to die for (just bought a house in a good neighborhood for 136K), BBQ and catfish--the cholesterol capital of south, and the TVA--I mean, as soon as I relearn how to speak southern I will be back in business.
Anyway: look forward to getting back into blogging and now can address earthquake preparedness in the Central US--Who Knew!
