My inner dragon is the embodiment of Nature and the Earth. I'm also the Earth Elemental dragon; the defender of all living things. You've heard of forest spirits? Well, I'm as big and tough as they get. Click the image to try the Inner Dragon Online Quiz for yourself.

I know I promised pics of the kids in their costumes, but I had the camera on the wrong setting ( not enough pixels) and they were blurry! Will attempt again tonite! In the meantime- Have a giggle on me! Peace, KC


Ethel was a bit of a demon in her wheelchair and loved to charge around the
nursing home, taking corners on one wheel, and getting up to maximum speed
on the long corridors. Because the poor woman was one sandwich short of a
picnic, the other residents tolerated her, and some of the males actually
joined in.

One day, Ethel was speeding up one corridor when a door opened and Kooky
Clarence stepped out with his arm outstretched. "STOP!" he shouted in a firm
voice. "Have you got a license for that thing?" Ethel fished around in her
handbag and pulled out a Kit Kat wrapper, and held it up to him. "OK" he
said, and away Ethel sped down the hall.

As she took the corner near the TV lounge on one wheel, Weird Harold popped
out in front of her and shouted "STOP! Have you got proof of insurance?"
Ethel dug into her handbag, pulled out a drink coaster, and held it up to
him. Harold nodded, and said "Carry on, ma'am."

As Ethel neared the final corridor before the front door, Crazy Craig
stepped out in front of her, stark naked, with a very sizable erection. "Oh,
good grief," cried Ethel, "not the Breathalyzer again!"

Since Kim gave me the "head's-up" and my present phone's battery only holds it's charge for 2 days ( and the battery alone costs $30 to replace!) I decided on this little beauty.It's a Motarola V400. Cost $60 online, and since I haven't paid anything for my last 2 phones I figured I could spring for this one. It has a camera and everything else. NOW maybe I can get those shots from the concerts- since most venues down here will not allow cameras, but DO allow phones. BIG FINGER at the "concert police" hehehehe!

Today, while I was just sitting around, the doorbell rang. I answered and it was my friendly mailperson! With a box in hand. When I opened it, I was amazed.
My cousin ( who I haven't seen in about 3 years) had sent me a "CARE" package. Enclosed were the following:
1- A pink Beenie "Breast Cancer" babie bear!
2- a Pink Nitney Lion cap ( ask Michael, he'll know!)
3- A wind chime with the Pittt Steelers logo.
WOW! I know that my Mom told my relatives about my "problem" but I never expected this! Happy tears do not due the action justice!
AND-- My old Boss, the one that retired about 4 years ago. The man that was a surrogate father to me ( in MY eyes, I did not think that he knew but.....) Called me to let me know he'd found out. AND how he and his wife are doing everything within their power to send positive thoughts my way!I never thought that when people found out, they would care sooooo much. ( insert HAPPY tears here!)I am truly Blessed!
And for all of you that continue to stick by me! Bless you all
I will post pics of my kid's costumes tommorrow, they look soooooo cool!
And I'm about to enter a new dimention to my spirituality, which will happen Sunday. Wish me luck.

Thanks all and Blessed Be! Peace! KC

Sorry I've been slacking, but between yesterday's little blip, and Blogger not wanting to work, this is the first chance I've had to catch up with you all.
Shopping- well, I didn't have alot to spend ( my disability doesn't kick in until next monday) so I didn't go as crazy as I could have. Got 2 pair of "Liz Claiborne" colored jeans ( you know, not the denim, but look like jeans?) My best buy was at the Reebok outlet. I got a pair of walking sneakers, Plus a pair of Rockport suede "maryjane" type shoes, for $35 total for both!! I'm sooooo proud of myself lol!It could of been MUCH worse! ( P.S. to Kim- this one store had so much "bling bling" for sale- YOU would have had a heart attack!)
I mentioned a little blip. Yesterday for some reason, after I took my daily pile of pills ( yuck!) I did some housework, and suddenly got a little dizzy. So I sat down, then laid down on the bed 'cause it made me a little tired. I figured I'd just close my eyes for a few minutes. That was at @ 10:30 am. My son woke me up and 3:45!!!!!! OOOPPPPPSSSS! Guess I was more tired than I thought!
I have decided ( incase you didn't notice) to keep my present template. I LOVE the ones Lori made, But for some reason I can't seem to get into blogger and make that back-up file to move templates back and forth. And I just got done tweaking this one to suit me. I'll get one of her's later when I'm bored with this one. After all, we all can't look alike, can we?
One other thing, I had to delete out smiliecentral. I don't know about all of you, but that put so much spyware on my computer, it was begining to make a mess. So if any of you know somewhere else I can get smilies ( or something similar) let me know!
Have a great day Friends!! Peace ,KC

Sorry I was MIA over the weekend, but I decided to have some "family time". And since everyone was home, my time on this thing was severely limited. A couple of things happened that I thought I'd share.
First off, I am seeing/feeling some affects of the chemo meds now. Not anything major- just a lessening of my stamina, and a funny taste in my mouth. Kind of like you have after a REALLLLLLY good nite on the town. It does make most of the things I eat taste like the inside of a tin can, but nothing that I can't handle!( I might even manage to loose some weight in the process! positive thought there!)
I had someone in a chat the other day ask me why my nickname is KC, when my intials are KF. Well, my maiden-name was Campbell. I recieved that nickname in college. There were 4 girls with the name Karen on my hall alone! Made for an interesting stampede when a call came on the "off-campus" line, and someone screamed "Karen- Phone!" So after 2 weeks of that, we all had "adopted" nicknames. Mine was the first picked since it was easy and everyone agreed it suited me perfectly. Karen is a name ( this is my opinion ONLY! No offense to any others with that name!) that I always felt was staid and boring. ( not to mention very common to my generation!) KC just sounded like someone fun and happy! And you all know that suited me just fine! It has stuck ever since.
Becky ( my eldest) and I were talking Saturday, and discussing all the things she wanted for Christmas. She asked me how I was going to do the "Santa" thing ( always my job and pleasure!) when I may not be able to go out shopping in public due to my treatments. WOW, who replaced my 14 yr old with a learned scholar??! I confess that had not entered into my mind! So, we came to the conclusion that I will have to do the shopping online! Safe for me, and eases her mind too! So, my fellow bloggers- aside from the obvious sites ( amazon, *insert major store site here*, ebay, etc) are there any sites you all know of that would be a good place for me to go? I have not been in the habit of ordering stuff online, with the exception of Lep stuff ( imports, ebay, etc) And I certainly can't find everything on Amazon.com! Safe ( security-wise) reliable, and fun are the key here! Any help you can give would be appreciated.( oh, and if they gift-wrap, can you say GOLDMINE!!)
My last little rant will involve Island records. Can you say A@@holes! ( I knew you could!Open Mouth) I am really upset with the whole record business in general. It's not just our Leps that are being abused in this way. Many of the "older,established" acts have put out CD's in the last 2 years, and unless you were as involved in their "fanbase" as we are with the Leps, you wouldn't know! These so-called know-it-all's seem to think that when you pass the age of 30, you just don't care about music anymore. BULLSHITE! The fact that these acts paid for the desks they sit at, and the limos/planes/hottubs/Armani suits they own doesn't seem to hold any weight with these shisters! I wish there were some way that someone(s) could enlighten these morons that we DO buy music! ( as a matter of fact, concidering the rampant amount of downloading and such by the younger kids, We are the ones that are probably still actually BUYING the Darn CD's!!!!!!) I would love 10 minutes in the office of the head of Island/Def Jam, I could untwist his knickers and make him "see the light"- Anyone for a short trip to NYC???????
Well, that's it for now. Mom is comming over and we are going down to the outlet mall in Vero Beach. I want to get out as much as possible while my energy and my immunities are still up! Have a great day friends! Peace, KC Shopping 2

Well, I still have some work to do figuring out how to fix the style. But this is it-

I did color it brown with red highlights, but the rain is here and there's no sunlight at the moment to go outside where the light would be better. If I can figure out how to "fluff" the sides up a bit, I think it will do. Well, after having long straight hair for years it will take me some time to get back into habit!
Just do me a favor- don't tack it on the dart-board! Darts Just kidding ( sort-of lol!) KC

Just a few rambling thoughts for the day:
THANK YOU KIM! she who helped with the graphics for the pic above! I found out why the pic would not post at the proper size. My account with photobucket would not allow any larger pics unless I upgraded to a paid account! No suprise there I suppose!
I DID get my hair cut yesterday, but not the "dye-job" so until I handle that myself today, I am not putting up the pic. Short hair has a habit of showing more of the flaws ( I.E. gray hairs lol!) and right now I'm DEFinately not in the mood to show off my bad gene-pool!hehe! I hated the way it looked when he was done, but I should have known that I was in trouble when Mom insisted we go to the guy that has done her hair. His average clientele is around 80 years old. I picked out a style that I thought I could live with, but when he styled it after the cut- UGH! I looked like a old lady!! I came home, wet it, restyled it and NOW I think I can live with it ( as long as the hair stays- that is!). I'll try to post the pic later today.
I went to see my Surgeon yesterday, to have him check up on the surgery he did last week to put the "port" in. He seems to think that I'm looking and seeming very good, concidering how quickly they are all rushing me into "full-attack" mode. He also mentioned something about hooking me up with a radiation specialist, to really "do this Beast in". I said to my Hubby last nite that after all this, we won't need a night light- I will probably "glow" enough!Confused He also wants to see me in 6 weeks ( Nov. 30 ) to set up my surgery for the mastectomy. Which means I may be spending my 46th ( OUCH!) birthday recieving the one birthday present that I would rather NOT get.
Don't worry, I'm not down yet! I just hope the worst of this is over before anything really interesting starts ( can you say Lep-trek??!!) I have been talking with Jon ( a.k.a. Hubby) and he said that if I make it through all this, he would not be adverse to springing me to road trip this time! WHOO HOOO! That's alot from him, since that would leave hime to deal with the 3 kids solo ( not that he's not capable!) I just never asked, because Mom is my #1 job, and I always felt that it would be unfair to him, you know? But damn it, I want that "reward". He has begun to see ( he reads this, and you comments sometimes,) just how important you all are to my mental well-being! And I think he's beginning not to resent the amount of time I spend on "talking" with you all. And I know he realizes that I would just LOVE to finally meet some of you! The past few weeks are probably the first time since we've had this computer that he hasn't rolled his eyes on the amount of time spent with my "lep-friends". Thank you all for that as well!
Well, I "waffled" enough for now. Off to my store to check in with my co-corkers, and get that Hair dye. "See" you all soon! Peace! KC

Just a quick note this morning- The Chemo went really well. I can't really tell that I had it. I'm sure as time goes on I'll feel it more, but right now I'm in prep- mode. Getting all the "supplies" I may need when my energy level is not as good as it is now. You know, Hats, scarves, skin creams, etc. It is nice to know that I didn't start out with side-effects right off- means my body is strong still!
I've decided to go ahead and cut my hair. Seems the right thing to do all around. I thought my mother was going to have stroke when I told her, She's been bugging me for 10 years or more to cut off all my hair! So she's gonna pay for it ( Gladly, she says!) and she's even springing for some highlights, to give me a ego boost! I'll try to post a pic of the new me when it's done .
Well, off to run errands. My neighbor is having laser eye surgery, and I promised to take her down. I had volunteered weeks ago, and she said now with everything she wouldn't hold me to it but, as we all know: I don't make promises I can't keep!
Speaking of which- "see" you all later! {{{{{HUGS}}}} Peace, KCSunshine

OK! Now I'm just pissed! I finally figured out how to take out the bland text and put in my blog name on the picture above, but now photobucket has it so small you can't see it! And the original print was on a photobucket account!!! What the Heck did I do? Some of YOU have photobucket, and I see your pictures large and proud, why can't I get that to work? Now you need a magnifying glass to see it!
And I think I've managed to work everything else re: my last post, so this has got me stymied.
I go for Chemo and 1pm today, and after I have some breakfast, I take my first dose of a drug called Xelodia. I read the "cheat" sheet on this drug- this one is gonna hit harder than the Chemo will! Side-effects include: Nausea,Vomiting,Diarrhea,Dizziness, mouth sores, etc. Sounds like fun-NO?

I'm still trying to Tweak the thing. 3 things I don't like is the "My Blog" script up top- BORING! and the fact that it signs my posts with my given name instead of KCfla, which I prefer ( *edit*-fixed that!)! Also, I can't seem to figure out how to put my blog's real name in , It just isn't the same without it! So teachers all, any suggestions? Bang Your Head

Is 58 degrees, as the sun comes up. It's finally trying to cool off down here. I actually opened the windows last night, and had my first good night's sleep in 2 weeks. Have my Earl Grey by my side and just thought I'd ramble this morning. So shoot me The Thinker
First- I'd like to ask you all your opinions on something that has been running around in my head for a week or so. You all know that with me starting my treatments this week, one of the side-effects will be hair loss. Well, here's the question. Should I get my hair cut short ( really short!) before hand. Or should I wait until the "fall-out" starts to cut it? My hair right now is shoulder length, and it might get a bit messy if I don't, but I have never had short hair in my life... sooo???? Your thoughts on this would be appreciated. Just my own poll as to what YOU would do in my place ( pray to what ever god you chose that you don't have to make that decision!!)
Second, I am thinking about changing my blogskin. Since I am going to have A LOT of time on my hands here, I think I've gotten the jist of how to reload all this stuff back on if I do, but where should I go to find a good one? I also may need some help, as I did not manage the haloscan solo ( thanks Michael!) but I will make a print of my present template beforehand, so that should give me a "guide".
Boy, for 7am, I'm just buzzing with ideas today! We have to go shopping for the kids Halloween costumes today, before all the good ones are taken. Then it's off to the best meat/delicacy market to stock up. Yesterday afternoon, when I got home from the doctors- there was an envelope left for me with a $100 gift certificate to this market from my co-workers! They blow my mind sometimes! That should keep my family in meat/deli/etc. for several weeks. In the middle of chaos comes those of good heart! Between them and all of you, there is no way I can stay down for long. If the tears come, I come back here and read your comments! Well, hubby just came back with some donuts- so off to feed before the shopping spree.
Have a great weekend, and I'll talk at you all later! Peace! Rainbow

It's Friday!!!! With some good news at the end!!!


The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington
chemistry mid-term. The answer by one student was so "profound" that
The professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is of
course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.

Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law
(gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

"First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time.
So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the
rate at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that
once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are
leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the
religions that exist in the world today. Most of these religions state
that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell.
Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not
belong to
more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell.
With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of
souls in Hell to increase exponentially.
Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because
Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in
Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as
souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:
1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls
enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase
until all Hell breaks loose.

2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in
Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.

So which is it? If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during
my Freshman year that, "It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with
you," and take into account the fact that I still have not succeeded in
having an affair with her, then number 2 above cannot be true, and
thus I am sure that Hell is endothermic and will not freeze over."


Just a quick note, I will post more tommorrow- My oncologist is convinced that I have NO cancer in my lymph nodes, so I have been "downgraded" from stage III to Stage I breast cancer! WOO HOOO! That means a lot less trouble to kill the Beast! Hope that gives you all the smile that I've had all day!!!! Woohoo Peace! KC

Thought this sounded like me! as for other things, I had my minor(?) surgery yesterday. The biopsy doesn't bother me at all, but the port! OUCH! I can't hardly move my right arm. It was placed right below my collarbone, and I had to sleep in the Lazyboy last night. And tommorrrow morning I meet with my Oncologist, who I hear is the best in town ( GOOD!). I am officially on disability from work, it was approved yesterday, so at least finances are taken care of. I really appreciate all your encouraging comments, you don't know how much they help keep my spirits up when I start thinking too hard Shocked Thanks and I'll see you all later! Hugs! KC

Well, off I go

I will not be going to the hospital as I thought. Dr & I decided to do the treatments first, so as to shrink the tumor, so that more of "me" can be saved when it's time to have *that* surgery. So I will be going tommorrow to get what is called a "Port". It's basically a device they put under your skin that allows the meds to go directly into an arterey, instead of sticking me in the arm all the time. Makes the meds work faster and more efficiently ( so I'm told).
I will be getting both Radiation & Chemo, so yours truly may look a little like Malvin when all is said and done. ( God- Scary!!!!) But this way we are using everything available to get what I now call "The Beast". I'm actually less nervous than I was- at least now I'm doing something, rather than pacing the floor!
I will not post about "this" all the time, Just thought you all would like to know what's up. Peace- KC

Not a fun post..

I am starting this by saying sorry. This is not the way I would normally start out our week, fellow bloggers, but it can't be helped. I have been dealing/contemplating whether or not to even post about this here. But as we are all friends here, though I have not met you in person, I feel it would be deceitful not to let you know....
That last Friday, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. That's right; Those things which have been a part of me since the age of 12 have up and betrayed me. ( that's why my Friday funnie was missing- just didn't have the heart for it on that day). Tommorrow ( Tuesday) I have an appointment with a Surgeon, to discuss my options, although I know the answer, the questions needs be asked. By the way my OB-GYN acted, I will probably be in the hospital by week's end.
I won't lie- I'm scared shitless, but I'm determined! I have a VERY supportive husband, and 3 beautiful children, and I'll be damned if this beast is gonna get the better of me. And besides, I have alot left to do in this world. I have spent the weekend making CD's of my favorite music to take with me on my battle. I've huged my kids to death. I've sat in Hubby's arms. I'm Strong, Bullheaded, Armed and Dangerous. And I will survive.
I will let you all know tommorrow what goes on, Keep your fingers crossed for me. Love to you all! Peace- KC

A little help, if you please!

I have been "cleaning up" my computer today, since I have the day off. I noticed, when trying to organize my address book that I have more than 1 e-mail address for some of you! Now, I know this is not the "end of the world as we know it", but as I would rather ( when I am so inclined ) send any e-mail to your proper addy. I would appreicate it if any of you that have two addresses ( say, work and home?) let me know which one you prefer I use. I would hate to use the "wrong" one, and get someone in trouble. I have been know to send a message now and again that may make someone's supervisor blush! Lord knows, I don't want to get anyone in trouble!!!
Just when you have time- If you want. This is a request only. I would not ask if I wasn't concerned. Take you time, there is no rush! Thanks you all! Peace! KC

You may feel like a great queen who reigns over a tremendous kingdom, KC. Feel free to direct your subjects as you see fit. There is a great deal of wisdom available to you that can help you make decisions for the benefit of the entire population. Your regard for greater humanity is noble, and you should make sure to maintain this attitude in order to keep a good rapport with your people.

Jeez, you'd think I was a Diva or something! well, it's certainly good for a laugh! Have one on me folks! Burst Laughing KC

Woo Hoo!

I got a package in the mail Saturday, that I've just now been able to open and explore. It is the DVD"S of the 3 nights that DL played at the Beacon theater in NYC on the last tour. WOW! I can't beleave how great these are! Got them off E-bay from someone for about $30 dollars, and it was money well spent! The only problem is that these discs will NOT play in my DVD player in my livingroom.( you know, the one with stereo surround sound and all that!) Oh well, I'll have to transfer these boots to discs that WILL work. That will give me something to do until work today!
I love E-bay, without which I would not have some of these great DVD's/CD's. Just thought I'd share! ( and I can if you want, just let me figure out how to do the transfers, and PM me or something!)
At least when I get home tonight, when all the rest are asleep, I can get a real Lep-Fix! Peace you all! KC TV 3

Better late than never

HI ALL! Today, I finally got done what I've been planning for weeks ( but the weather stopped) My veggie/herb garden. That's right friends, I love to garden! And it's a cheap way to get get the most out of my humble ground.
Actually, it is really 3 separate areas- a small plot under a bay window in front of my kitchen, a former flower bed off my back porch ( where no flowers EVER grew well) and pots scattered around the porch. Just planted the basics today ( tomatos,peppers, broccoli,squash, lettuce, rosemary, thyme, basil etc.) I will add more as I find them. My favorite garden place is still closed due to Jeanne, so I will hit them up for the cool stuff as soon as they open ( Jalepenos, eggplant, and herbs that are out of the "normal" scope!) I even found these tomatos called " Mr. Stripey", they're red and yellow striped- the Kids will love those!
I know you all may think this is boring stuff- but this is my way of saying to the world: Back to normal in Palm Bay! and besides, there is nothing better on a saturday afternoon that to go out my back door and "pick" a salad for lunch! It is not quite 11am, and I feel like I have accomplished the world! I know, I lead a sad little life,no? But when I walk up to my front door, to the smells of rosemary and mint- well, I'll be smiling !
Off to do the laundry! Anyone for some Herbal tea????? Cool KC
