and it's a "Thank You" to
-All the DUers who have enlightened me over the past 4 years;
-All those who have entertained me for many long and late hours;
-Anyone who has brought new ideas and interests to attention;
-Any and all posters who have become internet friends;
-And to EarlG and Elad for providing and maintaining the best forum on the internet for the presentation and discussion of the issues most important to our day.
-Finally, to anyone reading this, "Thank You" for your interest!
Looking back, I know I would not have made it through the TFG years if I hadn't found this wonderful place to call "Home". It helped to retain my sanity when it seemed all those surrounding me had lost theirs.
It's been a very quick four years and I have probably spent way more time on DU than I ever anticipated, but for the most part, it's been a wonderful ride and time well used!
THANK YOU ALL, DU! TAKE A BOW!
when donating to help Ukraine. The work they do is immeasurable.
MSF has a longstanding presence in Ukraine, including in regions of eastern Ukraine that have been affected by armed conflict since 2014. We have now had to halt normal activities in Ukraine and mobilize to launch emergency operations. We have teams in Ukraine, Poland, Moldova, Hungary, Slovakia, Russia, and Belarus. MSF is an independent and impartial organization committed to providing medical humanitarian assistance to people affected by the war no matter who they are or where they are.
MSF has been in contact with Ukrainian hospitals that are receiving trauma patients wounded in the fighting. Many hospitals are also facing shortages of supplies, mainly for emergencies, trauma care, and surgery. On March 6, an MSF shipment of emergency medical supplies was delivered to the Ukrainian Ministry of Health in Kyiv. The shipment contained 1,400 cubic feet of supplies, including surgical kits, trauma kits, and basic necessities for intensive care units, emergency rooms, and surgical operating theaters. These supplies are now being sent on to hospitals in the city and other towns further east where they are urgently needed. We are sending additional supplies to the country.
This has long been one of my favorite charities, and I have no difficulty in recommending donations be sent their way. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.
The inevitable has happened - cholesterol and sugar has taken its toll. The funeral invitations have been received, and the RSVPs are being returned.
