Last year I didn’t renew my hosting and I lost 4 years of posts.  I have drafts of several of them on Evernote but not all the final versions.  I’ve been bummed.  I’ve wanted to write some more but I kept thinking about the posts I lost.  It’s time to stop thinking about all the lost information and start writing again.

When we started a blog/website it was primarily used to update our friends and family before we went to Oxford.  As time went on I used it to write about things I was learning as well as update our friends and family.

Now with Facebook and Twitter I don’t see the need to post as many updates on a blog.

I do have a desire to write more around my personal journey / experience around studying productivity and focus.   I’ve bought a domain called FocusMonk where I plan on writing more about those topics.

In Kay’s memory. Information on Ovarian Cancer

This information came in an email from my cousin Valencia. After a 2-1/2 year battle with ovarian cancer,
her wonderful Mom Kyung Hi “Kay” Booth passed away. She asked us, in her mother’s memory to pass on these facts on Ovarian Cancer…something all women should know.

  • Ovarian cancer is the 4th leading cancer killer among American women, and is the deadliest of all gynecologic cancers.

  • If diagnosed in its early stage, the chance of survival is 90%.

  • Over 75% of cases will be diagnosed in the late stages, resulting in a five year survival of less then 30%.

  • Unlike breast and cervical cancer,
    there’s no reliable screening method for detecting ovarian cancer, nor
    any real test at the present designed to catch it before it spreads.

  • A pelvic examination should be performed every one to three years for women aged 18 to 39 and every year for women over the age of 40.

Early recognition of symptoms is the best way to save women’s lives. Early symptoms may include:

  • Bloating, a feeling of fullness, gas
  • Frequent or urgent urination
  • Nausea, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea
  • Menstrual disorders, pain during intercourse
  • Fatigue, backaches.
