Mars, the Bringer of War

I'm finally feeling motivated enough to update this site.
I'm doing fine considering the situation. While I do have Stage 4 prostate cancer, it doesn't seem to be bothering me very much. My main problem is not being able to walk, although I am able to get into the wheelchair and the recliner with the help of the lift.
I have my laptop available and it is my lifeline to the outside world. I spend a lot of time watching movies and surfing the internet.
I can be reached by e-mail at and by cell phone at 516-286-5472
I finally sucumbed to necessity and bought an artificial Christmas tree. I'm certainly not in any position to get a real tree and decorate it :-(
I'm actually looking forward to the holiday season. Thanksgiving was great, even though we celebrated it on Saturday the 17th. The whole family was here and it was a good day.
I'll try to keep this journal up to date so you can check in here from time to time to see how I'm doing.
Here's a video that I found interesting. The music is from Gustav Holst' piece "The Planets" and is called "Mars, the Bringer of War":
