        • Lovely pic and Trina is so precious. Thank God she's ok and for the burn center.
        • Thank you! She is good, read the news story if you like. It is not world class news but it's pretty decent.
        • That's whats kool about FN creating Art from Beauty.
        • Really sweet chop-good luck.My empathy & sympathy to you, HS. I burned myself at 2 yrs. old with the mishandling of a hot coffee pot. Mom drenched me in liquid 'Foille' and I, eventually, lived to meet Hopalong Cassidy at the local Children's Hospital(a good thing). Then I was burned by JP-5 in S.E. Asia (30%) and lived. I hurt, dearly, for a long time and that's where the empathy/sympathy comes from. Good luck to your Daughter.
        • Ohhh, Sorry Geriatric. You sure have had your bout's with fire. I have only had amazing luck and gotten out of scrapes I probably should not have during my years as a firefighter. Was never burned bad at all but can enpathize with you and Trina. Her's is a very happy ending and the main reason I chose the news story they did on her.
          Since you are still among us, I am delighted that you story has a happy ending as well. Peace
        • Firefighter? At least your Daughter was in good hands-that's real Luck. Stay safe HS.
        • LOL not daughter] grandaughter. I was 100 miles away when it happened but she was well cared for by EMS people in Ridgecrest. That is one thing you can say about the EMS system in this country. The training is so strict and standardized you will get excellent care just about anywhere.
        • I stand corrected and am happy to hear that something works in this country. And your image was well done and a keeper in my FN library of outstanding Art. Thanks for the dialogue HS.
        • No, thank you. Comments and discourse are always welcome. That is why I try to keep up a level of chatter even though I sometimes dont feel like it due to less than friendly input. Of course that is rare as hen's teeth but chitt happens. I'm not sure if people are timid, afraid they might not appear understood due to language difference or just don't care to say anything but I think a place is as friendly as the people that go there so I yack LOL.
          Once Vlad figures out how to serve saspirilla, coffee and beer it will be the perfect meeting place LOL
