    BBSlink is a great resource for us Sysops to allow our players to have
    access to games with many players, there were only a couple drawbacks, (1) Hard to get ANSI score files to post on our BBS systems (2) no place besides the web for players to discuss the games they are playing.

    Those issues are over! Enter BBSLink Network! A QWK network for BBSLink users.

    This network was started TODAY 3-20-17, so grab you a starter install pack
    and join in!

    Will see you soon!

    Cool. I'll have to look into it.

    However, it may have to wait a bit, for 2 reasons.

    1) Increasing days of thunderstorms (Arkansas is in its tornado season now).

    2) Emergency Surgery for me to remove 2 huge stones (16 millimeters each)
    from my bladder.

    WE had a real bad one just a couple hours after I sent this ad out, blew down power poles and we have a large tree down in the back yard. had rough hail twice that day. a tornado was never confirmed, but there were awful winds. took six-7 hours to get the power back up (good considering call the damage, thak God for Linemen.)


    2) Emergency Surgery for me to remove 2 huge stones (16 millimeters each)

    oh, I feel for you.. I hope to not ever have to go through any of that. I cannot drink milk because my stomach, and I don't know if I heard wrong but I heard a lot of stones are from calcification, may never have stones, but have brittle bones. I hope the best for you.

    Tim,

    WE had a real bad one just a couple hours after I sent this ad out,
    blew down power poles and we have a large tree down in the back yard.
    had rough hail twice that day. a tornado was never confirmed, but there were awful winds. took six-7 hours to get the power back up (good considering call the damage, thak God for Linemen.)

    There's still the potential for thunderstorms and severe weather tonight,
    and practically every day for the next week. Welcome to Tornado Season in Arkansas. :P

    oh, I feel for you.. I hope to not ever have to go through any of that.
    I cannot drink milk because my stomach, and I don't know if I heard
    wrong but I heard a lot of stones are from calcification, may never
    have stones, but have brittle bones. I hope the best for you.

    Thanks. It may not be as big of a deal as originally thought. From what
    the female urologist told me, they'll put me to sleep (I sure hope so <G>), then insert a cystoscope up through the penis and urethra into the bladder, along with a catheter. They'll be able to see the stones, then break them
    up, then like a sink, flush the stone fragments out with water, then
    remove the catheter. If it's outpatient, it'll be cheaper, and not as
    much downtime.

    Arkansas and Tennessee are considered "the kidney stone belt", likely
    because of the limestone in the water. There are more reports of kidney
    stones in those 2 states than anywhere else.

    Plus, once you've had a kidney or bladder stone...or if you have a
    family history of these, you're likely to get more.

    I knew a woman who said she would rather have quintuplets in hard
    labor than one kidney stone. That pretty well sums it up.

    Yeah, it's about the same for us, usually we get spared and everyone around us gets hit, a few years back, I believe it was an Ef5, could'nt have been smaller, LEVELED Ringgold, just 20 or so miles north of me, that night I was driving (at work) and stright line winds snapped close to two miles worth of power poles on the street right beside me, I kicked over in the left lane, floored it, and started praying. My heart has'nt beat so quickly in my whole life, and my legs were just shaking on the accelerator. will never forget that night. nor what the storm did to Ringgold. then not long after that, another hit Adairsville, about 30 miles south of me, you can still see the scars on the landscape around I-75 from that one. I'd like to say being in the valley between these two mountains help us, but I know that cannot be true, but both these places the storms hit were right where the mountains end?

    Ouch, that still sounds pretty rough, but sounds better than passing them! I hope the best for you.

    I've heard that too.

    Luckily that has not been a issue in our family (that I know of) I hope it never is. we already have enough health issues in our genetics (heart and blood issues).

    I knew a woman who said she would rather have quintuplets in hard
    labor than one kidney stone. That pretty well sums it up.

    Yeah.. I can believe it..

    Take care Daryl.
