The falling down was worse than the cancer !
I tripped, fell front forward and put out hands to break fall, but it was with such force, head slammed into concrete walkway. I do not know WHY I did not pass out. All I could recall was that I am gonna die here, on the sidewalk; Who will find me? ; and my wife (Karen) will never know what really happened.
Bleeding from forehead, I got into Karen's Cherokee, held paper towels to head with right hand AND DROVE HOME (6 miles)
At my regular Dr. I had 2 badly brused lower legs, a HUGELY swollen right knee, a 1 & 3/4 open gash on forhead and a concussion.
Imagine, I drove home, 6 miles with a concussion. I did good.
I am 97% over it all. It took 5 weeks. I missed 3 Chemo Infusuions. I resumed this past Monday with an infusion. I skipped 6 weeks. (3 times). I got lectured about NOT going OUT for four days AFTER a Chemo infusion, because it makes me DiZzY and I can (and do) fall down. Crying or Very sad
Mike, went to Star 2-nite. Had 20 minute wait to get in. Jam Packed
Warm ASummer night. Ravoiili & Garlic Bread was terrific.
Missed your presence.

That place is obviously a popular joint as packed as it was.

It's cool they have RC on tap!

Let ya in on a little secret, Mike.

It had its roots as a Tavern, during the fifties. A couple of owners later decided to buy the gas station right next store, where the parking lot is now, and enlarge into a Italian Restaurant, but to this day, the bar-area does a very handsome business. Old=tyme "taverns" of the days gone by, would only make 7 & 7's using Segrams 7 AND 7-UP.
7 UP is made by Royal Crown Cola (RC). So, when they sign "on" with a delivery and a contract, for 7-UP they get all of the companies other products. (Which would be: A & W Root Beer; Canada Dry Ginger Ale; Sunkist Orange; Welsh's Grape Soda; Pa. Birch Beer; Dr. Pepper; and... Royal Crown Cola and its Diet cola, called "Diet-Rite."

Many old tyme tsaverns have some of the above as a 7&7 made with Sierra-Mist or Sprite are Sad

I like all those sodas. Actually that whole batch comes under the "D Pepper/Snapple Group". RC as a business entity is probably long gone.

I went to your URL (above). One error, see below:

RC Cola (North America)

This is true, but not complete. RC Cola is THE exclusive Cola sold in Israel, as Coke & Pepsi turned their backs on Israel, in order to optain business contracts in the countries that are "UNfriendly" to the hallowed earth that Christ walked upon." So, NOW you can put 2+2 together & know why we only drink RC. In Isreal there are RC Cola Vending Machines ! Bet 'ya never saw that !! Try a Rum & Coke, but use RC instead. It is So So So gOOd ! Always drink responsibly. yada yada yada..... NEVER drink & drive, for you could hit a pot hole & spill ya drink!!!

Yes, 90% of that is true - but, it stops with 2007. In the interm , Dr. Pepper/7-UP became more aggressive in Israel via promotions & advertising AND something we Americans do not have, that being VENDING MACHINES for their products, in large numbers. It has given "pop" drinkers a middle of the road choice. Those sipping Pepsi are chidded by others for drinking "Pukesee" and they in turn remind the other camp, that it was originally Coke that chose the Arab lands to sell their products in. With RC being a "safe ground" AND very "Out-there" vending machines, in the last 2-3 years they are nudging Coke in a painfull place called "profits"
