That's the 'diagnosis'. Two weeks or less. Hospice would be surprised if it's more than two weeks.

I know! I'm not even sure what she was knitting - it looked incredibly complicated, with five different needles, some of them with caps, some of them capped only at one end, a safety pin holding a whole bunch of stitches for later.

Update: so I went and asked her about it. It's an outfit for Liam. Someone showed her this really clever little outfit for babies that looked fabulous, but it was expensive and made out of Alpaca. Alpaca can't be machine washed without felting it, so it seems pretty impractical to make children's clothes out of it.

At any rate, she decided to make one from a picture, and that's what she's doing.

what an inspiration. i can't think about this very much, because then i wouldn't get any work done.

mara, a thousand times, my heart.

love you.

My friend, love and peace to you, your mom and your entire family as we pass into the new year. I know that there's nothing I can do from here (or from anywhere for that matter), but know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Much love from John and me.

Have you any experience on the mobile trend`? Everybody is saying that the future is mobile, but it still doesnt really seem to take off.

I have been to your site a fair few times now and I really enjoy reading your posts thanks again for making my day a whole lot better. :-)

Hi. Refreshing article. Thanks for taking the time to write about your thoughts with the web community.

I'm honored to obtain a call coming from a friend immediately he found the important recommendations shared on your site. Studying your blog posting is a real excellent experience. Thank you for thinking of readers at all like me, and I wish you the best of achievements as being a professional in this area.

it is good job, i read

The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it'll do even better in those areas, but for now it's a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod's strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he just bought me lunch since I found it for him smile Thus let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!
