 My cancer number before chemo was above 400.  After two cycles of infusions my number was down to 136; my oncologist termed this very unusual and I'm happy to report that I'm in a very high percentile for responding to chemo.
This is great news! Keep up the good work!

Today's Final could have been rewritten as a Bible-based wordplay clue, such as:

Remove three letters from a Biblical giant to get this Philistine city, the giant's hometown.

(OLI gets taken out of GOLIATH to form GATH, of course.)
I like it!

Hello all, I took the exam in March 2018, I got a 40. I took the audition in Philadelphia on Sept 11, and just got "The Call" this afternoon! I am so ecstatic, this feels so surreal. I dreamed of this moment since I was a little kid!!
Yay! Congrats!

Re: TD 429 - All Music (First Quarter Standings Revealed)

Wow, maybe I don't heart radio so much anymore! Minions I never hearted, those pesky little twinkies! I almost went for hurdy-gurdy, but recently my YouTube has been recommending videos from German musician Patty Gurdy, and I thought she might be "trending" or something. Is anyone else seeing these ...

Re: TD 428 - Short Quiz on Random Trivia - Final Scores

I credit G&S with my singleton on the Underground question.

Re: TD 428 - Short Quiz on Random Trivia - Scores through Second Bonus

Likewise, even though I knew it would sheep, I was so amused to find George Strait among the answers, I had to do that one. This is exactly how I felt, and his magnetism was such that I had to drop the strait question! It was either George or nuthin'! Thank you for the great TD, Peachbox. Although ...

Re: Reretaken Down

Page 3 is unusual to have to find this thread. To bump it up it's bad news as I only found out today that Denise Nickerson (Violet Beauregarde in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory ) died on July 10th at age 62. Besides the iconic film role I also remember her in the "Two Petes in a Pod" episode o...
