    Not if you live on the Atlantic :wink: Bugs aren't as bad if you live within a mile or two of the ocean.....which I do, actually, I could hit a solid driver and hit the intracoastal, ocean is about 300 yrds the other side of that :thumbsup:.

    Prevailing winds this time of year are south easterly, keeps 'em at bay.

    Some stuff. Not a lot, just some.
    The two places that I have encounter the worst mosquitoes are Canada and Hatteras Island, NC. Too much standing water

    On Hatteras or Ocracoke if there is a decent breeze life is good if you’re out of the grass areas, if the winds are calm, you’re bait.
    Fortunately there is usually a nice breeze most of the time.

    We usually have the worst trouble with them on the sound side.

    Try tarpon fishing in the mangroves on a calm night. Fuckers will literally make you deaf and/or carry my skinny ass away.

    They actually have a truck drive around and spray in the evenings.

    So do we in our neighborhood. Then again, I am surrounded by water, Manatee Pocket on one side, intracoastal on one side and the inlet and St. Lucie river on one side with Mangroves all around.

    Worse place I've ever been for bugs has been Port St. Joe, Florida. At sunset you better get your ass away from the water or they will eat you alive. Tried ever bug spray known including the shit they make locally and nothing seems to work.

    Thanks for the heads up. Been following the University of Tennessee and their progress. This will be huge for patients and insurance companies. I’ll do dialysis three days a week until I perish, or I get a transplant. No other options regrettably. But with an artificial kidney we bypass tissue type, blood type, and even ethnicity rejection.

    The average transplant costs around 40k while my monthly dialysis expense is 74k. These artificial kidneys will have insurance companies lining up to get their patients on the table. I’m hoping to be one of them.

    I wish you all the luck in the world with this. A couple of years ago I had kidney cancer and the removed one of mine. I'm ok now. I can't imagine what you must be going through. I'll be praying for you and a good option to help you.

    Insult to injury is when nephrologist stack a clinic with their own patients and then stroll through the clinic floor twice a week asking each of us if we’re feeling okay and then dinging our insurance for an office visit every time. My current doctor is doing this and as soon as I get accepted with a different doctor I’m dumping him.

    I'd sooner drink/eat myself to death. At least my family would get a check instead of a bill.

    My son started the first steps of his career this week. He is doing an internship with Deloitte in Downtown LA. He'll have a job offer when he graduates next year. Its been fun watching him run the gauntlet just to get the internship offer. Lots of hard work already. It's funny though, he called me to tell me how tired he was after commuting into Downtown (he lives in Westchester) and working several 10 hour days. He's getting used to the grind but he's having a blast. The hard work will pay off.

    This will tell you what it takes to get recruited at Deloite

    This is my older son. Accounting/CPA and Entrepreneurship degree from LMU.

    The engineer is my younger son. Just finished his freshman year at UC Santa Barbara. Let's just say he had a good year. Grades not so much but he's passing. He's not your typical engineering student. Hopefully he got some of this out of is system for next year. Sorry for the pic overload but it helps me remember my youth and not strangle him too hard. :evil: The rules are pass your classes, don't get arrested, and don't get anyone pregnant, and no tattoos(that I can see). He did that for the most part that I know of.

    And for those of you with daughters, this is why my son says never let your daughter go to UCSB.
