    who amongst us had to cut up a frog in science

    I did. I also had the really good looking, Harvard grad teacher, grab my hand and Make me touch the worm. I took Natural Science and Biology one. I will never have a speck of the love for science so many of you have. If I had gone on I probably would have blown up the Chemistry Lab.

        Okay, I've only done 4 or 5 puzzles today, but three of them had the word "experience" in them -- thankfully.

        And if that isn't coincidence enough, this is my third puzzle in a row today that used the word "human".

              My dad once recorded Thanksgiving dinner for some reason. Only when we listened to the tape later did we hear my grandfather quietly telling a long story underneath everyone else's random, loud and overlapping talk.

                  its incredibly hard to die with dignity. i can attest to that first hand right now. you have to fight for every last ounce of it. the health care system wants to put you in a hospital and refer to you as the ovarian cancer in bed three...I prefer to be known as Donna. I choose to die with dignity. At home. With loved ones. Is it a duty? I believe thats a personal choice. In my case, yes. My duty is die the way I lived...not having choices made for me. Not being a bed number but a human being.
