Time to close this blog..







I'd like to take the time to thank all of you who have messaged me, commented, and read my blog. Originally it was set up as a way to showcase my newest Etsy items and talk about a bit of nerdiness on the side. However, I'm finding I have little time to blog or craft, especially in summer while my son is out of school and I don't really need to market my crafts this way at the present time.


I was going to blog about my family and what we are up to, but my husband's ex (I have no idea why after 17 years she still feels the need to find out what is going on in his families life OR why she is holding on to so much anger and resentment. My philosophy is always about letting negativity go, but to each their own.) or his adult children (who demand money but won't speak to him) frequent this blog so I don't feel comfortable with divulging anything personal in a public venue.

So, enough of that ugliness :-) Thank you all for supporting me in this endeavour for as long as you have..I'll be removing the blog soon.
Be well..
Jen

* I have received some very positive comments about my "how to" pages and have decided to remove some pages but leave those. I may or may not add more pages like that at some future time. Thanks for everyone's support!!*

Game of Thrones Ilyn Payne actor has pancreatic cancer..




As well as playing the mute executioner Ilyn Payne, Mr. Johnson was famous as the guitarist and songwriter for the 1970s Brit band Dr. Feelgood.


 

He has recently been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and will not be receiving any treatment.

The Huffington Post says that "Pancreatic cancer is notoriously deadly, with 75 percent of people dying within a year of being diagnosed, MyHealthNewsDaily reported. And within five years, 94 percent of people with the disease will die." and also "For the most common kind of pancreatic cancer tumors, called exocrine tumors, the survival rate is 14 percent for the earliest stage (stage 1A) -- it goes down to 7 percent for stage 2A, and 1 percent for stage 4, according to the American Cancer Society."

More in their article here: Pancreatic Cancer,Why is 'Game Of Thrones' Actor Wilko Johnson's Condition So Deadly? 

Other celebrities who have had pancreatic cancer include actor Patrick Swayze, founder and CEO of Apple Steve Jobs, and opera Singer Luciano Pavarotti.

We wish Mr. Johnson the best. Thank you for your contribution to the Game of Thrones world.
