Street Bank ~ Great Idea

Streetbank... a website that allows you to see all that your neighbours are giving away or lending. It's a giant attic, garden shed, toolkit, fancy dress chest, library and DVD collection for you and anyone living within one mile of your home.

how it works...

1. Sign up for an account using your postcode.
2. Add one thing that you would be prepared to help with, lend or give away.
3. See people within one mile of you, and all their things.

To My Blogger Friends

I am so sorry that I haven't been posting much.  It's been a wee bit of rough year for me.  A lot of Fibro Flares, fatigue, An autoimmune diagnosis and my doctor thinks I might have another overlapping autoimmune disorder.   I feel exhausted all the time.   Now I have learned that a large and growing larger Parotid Tumor at my jaw line (I discovered in in 2003 but thought it was just a cyst since I have quit a few of them). ENT Surgen says it must come out but the good news is he believes that there is only a 20% chance that it's malignant -but- that there's a chance that while he's stripping the tumor from the facial nerves there's a possibility of me ending up with facial paralysis.

I am not happy about this.  This will make five surgeries in fave years.  This is going to throw me into a severe Fibro Flare.

and I'm scared.
