I've just finished reading your random things post and I must tell you that you are very brave to bear your life to us 'unknowns' I loved reading about you and plan on going back and reading all your posts.
Thank you for sharing my breakfast with me.
hugs, Michelle
A girl friends cruise? I love that idea!

Sorry for sticking my nose into your blog!
You mentioned that you are having a goiter (which is very very hard to notice even for former ultrasound tech:)).
Back in 17th century a moderate goiter had been considered as a sign of female beauty.
Most women in Italy had it due to the lack of dietary iodine.
If you are referring to cystic thyroid nodule you may want to research about PEI ablation procedure (used in Santa Monica thyroid clinic)
You can also name it "madam's apple"
Thanks for reading & best wishes!!

That's a lot of cruises! Lucky you! I feel the same way about the donut thing ... a donut is a donut isn't it? I've never seen a fortune teller, I'd quite like to though just for the fun!
