Love Ty's music. He hit on my boyfriend at Oilcans in Austin one Tuesday night years ago. The 3 of us ended up drinking and dancing for a bit, we gave Ty our number before he left, but he never called us lol. He had a "cover girl" with him, it was cute.

I know there is a thread already, this is just for listening
Good on both of them, hope it doesn't ruin them in Nashville.

ologist's office? Do you take your clothes off so they can check you all over? Always wondered that... I spent many hours at Hippie Hollow getting sun where the sun doesn't usually shine...
LOL, some of my sun damage definitely came from H.H. although my "nether regions" checked out fine.
I saw on ET tonight that Ty was busted some time ago in a park for indecent exposure and with crystal meth (not gayle), so maybe he did not need so much to come out!

Hi to everyone.
I'm planning to emigrate in Ontario, Canada.
Actually I'm HIV+ for 10 years, and I follow Atripla treatment.
What about Health care in Ontario? I mean: after I've obtain a regular Work permit, a Domicile and OHIP card, how does it work? Have I to pay for my drugs?
It could appear like a stupid trouble, but in my country (Italy) HIV assistance is totally free, whereas it seems to me to have a cost in Canada.
Does someone could help me to understand how it works?

What happens when you get checked for skin cancer at a dermatologist's office? Do you take your clothes off so they can check you all over? Always wondered that... I spent many hours at Hippie Hollow getting sun where the sun doesn't usually shine...
The butt is usually the last area of concern from what my dermatologist says but yes, you get stripped down to a hospital gown (keeping your undies on). He/she will take a peek but it just takes a few seconds.
It sounds like you have never been. Time to go. Maybe you will be happily surprised if nothing seems to concern you.
I started going about two years ago and have had two basal cell carvings. Sorry, but that is what may happen. Better to catch it early. If you find yourself with flakey skin that reoccurs in the same area it is a precancerous sign and by that I mean that the flakes keep forming no matter what you do. I have been "zapped" with the "freeze" gun multiple times for prevention. It's not a big deal, maybe stings a bit, but it can keep things in check.
Basal cell basically destroys the skin around it if not taken care of but squamous cell can get into your bloodstream if not caught early and can be deadly.
My last episode involved an area near my eye that kept producing a minor scab. It would heal and come back. I think I ignored it too long and low and behold it was cancer that needed to be carved out more than I imagined. Anyone over 40 should be seeing a dermatologist IMHO.
Them's the fact folks.
when I seen this on CNN this morning, before I clicked on the link, I was certain it was going to be Kenny Chesney. I didn't have him on the radar from some reason.
I have seen conflicting info on the timing of ARS symptoms on the net. I read something on yahoo that said it can occur days after infection. Is this true ?

Has anyone had a chance to read this article. I'd like to hear what some of you folks think about it. The author of the article seems to make a lot of sense concerning the new CDC policies of PrEP, Circumcision, putting folks on meds early as possible.
I've always thought about the guidelines they have now to work toward the 'end of Aids'. I think being able to help stem new infections is a good thing, but what about those of us that are already infected. It sort of feels like the CDC is just saying forget about those who are already infected and just focus on keeping folks from getting infected.
I apologize if this has already been discussed. I didn't see anything, but i'm not on as often as I used to be.

Yay to the 671!
Brickbats to the lab for causing you that distress.
Now when is that sky about to fall?
