Great post, Dac. I've been to Galveston in summer. It is indeed hot and humid. Quite a few years have passed since my last visit to the island, but I still recall the huge oleanders marching down the main street into town. So beautiful! I hope they survived Ike.


I'm looking for HGH product shot or pill. But somethings are so expensive. I'm looking for something that's works relatively well with the price that it is being sold for.. . Thank you!.


how tall do you have to be so the doctor can give you HGH?
. because im not that short & i didn't think that they would give it to me but then a guy i met in yahoo said he was 6'0 when they gave him a HGH called sytropin and now hes 6'4 and he was 19 when the doctor gave it to him? im only 13?. . ??????????????????????????????????????. . thanks for any answers :). xox.

HGH is human growth hormone. The supplemental forms of this in the US are actually taken from the glands
and brain of pigs. There is very little known about what the spectrum of effects could be.
Clearly there can be benefits, judging from people I know who have
used it. It is pretty obvious to me too that it
could exacerbate certain diseases, although who knows which ones
(I'll bet on any kind of tumor, cancer, and reproductive issues). Most probably, it causes your own body's natural production of HGH to slow down as the supplement floods your system, and when you stop taking it, there's a good chance your body won't be able to pick up the slack. Probably won't hurt you, I don't think its worth the experimentation.. . So, as for good stuff: there are a few very effective nutrients for repair that I would suggest.. ***Please note it is best to wait until several days after your final surgery to begin a regimen because many supplements will thin the blood and you need that to be clotting for a while after the surgery.***. . MSM (1000mg in 2 doses a day, or more with a Dr's advice) - is a sulfur compound that is supportive of tissue repair and proper inflammatory reactions. Not sure about this right after surgery, wait 7 days or more to start it, use 1 dose daily to start and work up).. . vitamin C - (500 mg once or even twice a day, or as rec'd by a Dr) - the "helper" vitamin that makes other nutrients more efficient. it may reduce blood clotting, so don't use it right away (see above). . Biosil by Natrol - this is a special type of silica. Natrol is touting BioSil as a beauty supplement, but the company that sold it for years before Natrol told the whole story: it helps in repair and maintenance of connective tissue (ligiments, cartilage, skin) and is used in the building of bones. This stuff is amazing, but it will seriously thin the blood.. . The best prices and quality can usually be found in a good local health food store. Try to find one in your area that is independent or a co-op and has staff in a vitamin section who can guide you around the shelves. They will often have the best prices overall, as the shipping/handling and even the sale prices online are often not good. Also, generally vitamins need to be stored/shipped and handled in a temperature and time sensitive manner and who knows with online delivery if they're stored in 120 degree storage unit in Arizona before they are shipped! Stores buy directly from the brands (speaking from experience, here since I've been an enthusiast for years).. . Good brands for MSM and vitamin C:. Jarrow, Bluebonnet, Natural Factors, Soloray, Nature's Way, Country Life.. . Try the homeopathic remedy Arnica Montana 200c potency before and after surgery to encourage proper blood-setting and prevent huge bruises and swelling. At the store they will tell you how to use them (little pellets usually).. . Good luck! Visualize little cells healing other little cells, it may help your body get the picture :)

You write some of the most interesting blogs, and meeting with old friends sounds like it was the frosting on the cake. There's nothing like seeing something firsthand. Thanks for sharing.

Enjoyed your trip vicariously. Best part of high school reunions are the memories. We pick & choose what to remember - all the good things. I'm intrigued. How to go thru airports & keep shoes on ? Please advise.
Looking forward to your book.

I entered the hospital about Mar. 15th and then rehab where I've been until this past Thursday. (Details uninportant.) The downstairs of the house has been changed to accomadate my wheelchair and rolling walker. The good thing is that the food was so bad that I lost 20 pounds. Since the wheelchair was ordered for the "new" me, I have to be really careful not to gain it back.
I've spend this afternoon catching up with your blog writings and comments since March. So glad to be able to get back to my computer again. Must keep walking and exercizing, however.

Revenge of the Texas Ranger - I like the title. Janice reminds me of Glen Campbell's lovely song and yes, the strong winds. Great that you traveled there to complete your research. Good luck with the book!

J. R. Lindermuth

I'm sure Jean will speak to you when he's ready. You're probably right. The heat kept him quiet. Looking forward to the book.

Janice Pulliam

The song "Galveston" that Glen Campbell sings mentions those strong winds. They must be a salient characteristic of the place. I've never been there. Who or what was Galvez? Sounds like somebody significant if the town and hotel were named after them.

Yep. got to get the ole boots in the sand to have a feel, smell, and sense of place. Waiting for next book.
I'm watching my neighbor spruce up his yard after last night,s storms. They just celebrated their 72nd wedding anniversary. We've gotten to half that.
It'll be fun to see what happens when his wife catches him. Though it is cooler than it has been for a while.

Patricia Gligor

Dac, I'm with you - For me, in order to create a setting for a novel, I need to experience it first-hand. It's not all about the facts; it's the ambiance of a place.

Celia Yeary

Sounds wonderful, Dac. I wish I could be there, too. I've never been in the Galvez hotel. Good luck and best wishes for your book to come to a rousing conclusion!

Thanks for the memory trip to Galvestson. Looking forward to the new book!
