Sorceror's Apprentice

Teeth!

Have you had, or are you currently having, orthodontic work done as an adult? Metal braces? The 'invisible' kind?

Did you notice any difference in how people treated you while it was going on?

How much did it cost? Was it worth it?

GoFundMe...

Is a GoFundMe account for a wedding a big no-no to you?

Would you encourage someone not to do that if they threw out the idea to you that they wanted to do it?

For those not interested: What are your plans for Halloween?

What would you do with a really really big sturdy cardboard box, TQC?
I have one which used to contain a sofa, so when I say big, I mean really big; quite big enough for a large tiger, or two moderate and fairly friendly tigers, to get comfy in (if only I had a tiger or two). It seems kind of wasteful to just chuck it out, so suggestions please!

Surgery

Have you or anyone you know had renal cell carcinoma? My son-in-law is having surgery tomorrow for a mass on his kidney and we don't know what to expect. It was found by accident after he had kidney stones and went for his follow up. He might lose the kidney once the surgeon sees it but if the growth is operable, he will still have half a kidney. They are using the cyber-knife if that makes any difference.

Good thoughts sent his way would be greatly appreciated.
