Apparently there is a young man in England who has struggled with hiccups, in essence, every 2 seconds for up to 12 hours a day. He estimates that he has hiccuped 10 million times since the episode(s) began. He has heartburn, no sleep for days, problems breathing and now he's on disability because he can no longer participate as a back-up singer in the rock band he was a part of. One night, he did down a pint of coca-cola right before a performance, and they briefly subsided.

....my in-laws are precious folks (I really mean it), we have always had a great relationship, and shared many experiences together...joyous times, not so joyous, and then plain ole' funny. I would like to share with you a couple of humorous occasions where my normally thoughtful and conscientious mother-in-law created a little stir....

As a particular family were helping one another with dinner preparations, the mother asked the youngest to go into the poorly lit pantry for a can of soup. He said, "I'm afraid of the dark!". His mother reassured him that Jesus is always with him and would be with him even in the pantry. The little boy wanted to be so brave and overcome his fear. So with head held high, steps very slow and calculated on his journey to the pantry, he grasped the handle with all his might, threw open the door and yelled in "Jesus, can you please hand me a can of soup?!".

Valley air stinks and will for years to come. It drives off business and sickens people to death. The American Lung Association, among others, annually reminds us how bad off we are. But those of us who've moved around the country can take that one step further.


How about tracking the air in places you've previously lived? OK, it's a snapshot in time -- you don't live there now, but bad air (water, crime, etc.) tend to be trendy, lingering for years.
