InterVarsity "Derecognized" at California State University's 23 Campuses: Some Analysis and Reflections | The Exchange | A Blog by Ed Stetzer

Milwaukee School of Engineering used to have an InterVarisity Christian fellowship.  I was never really interested in it but it seemed like a fine group.  These California State University Campuses must have nothing better to do if they are worried about a Christian organization of this nature. Why are the atheists afraid of this small little organization?  Shouldn't a University be open to all viewpoints equally? I believe that public funding for these Universities should be withdrawn and that funding should be given to private colleges like MSOE which are not afraid of a little controversy.

Remicaid infusion seems to have helped a little

Remicaid infusions seems to have improved the most severe pain that I have been having.  The pain seems a little duller and I guess that means that the inflammation was reduced. Remicaid should gradually help for a long time period of many years but it will not cure me because the professionals say that I will eventually become resistant to its beneficial effects.

The beneficial effects of my Humira injections have stopped completely so they have eliminated these shots to put me on Remicaid.   Humira did seem to have stopped the formation of abscesses but even that benefit would have gone away with time.  Hopefully Remicaid will be a temporary magic dam to hold back the tide of Crohn's until  something better comes along.

The are testing medical marijuana for Crohn's disease in Israel and it seemed to have helped a significant number of patients. I'll tell you what, I am perfectly willing to use medical marijuana if it will actually work better than the medications that I am taking. Some of my more conservative friends may find that offensive but  I guaranty that they do not have a flaming case of Crohn's disease.

The Money Pit is my new favorite movie. I especially like the scene where the raccoon jumps out of the dumbwaiter.

We used to own a house in Illinois before I became ill but we have since been living in apartments.  We plan on getting a house in Hartford as soon as we can work out the details.  USDA home loans are a great deal but they seem to need a lot of processing time and it looks like Hartford will be cut out of the program after January 15, 2015.  Could be a major bummer if we can't get our loan in time.
