Stench of burnt sulfur

THE EMBARRASSMENT "Careen"
When the weather gets too hot to do much of anything, I turn to the Embarrassment. Not sure why -- I guess "Don Juan," "Art Party," "Drive Me To The Park," and "Sex Drive" are just perfect little songs that remind me of suburban air conditioned living? This song is from a collection called Heyday that I know you already have but I'm lazy today.

Thanks to everyone who replied the other month about my health stuff, and I am going to explore homeo/ etc. type approaches to things ASAP. Right now, I need two surgeries sooooon: a hernia operation ASAP, and this thing to combat the effects of the Barrett's -- am still trying to get some kind of health coverage but no luck yet.

I am caught between making too much $$ to get on the ever-weakening Oregon Health Plan and being denied by regular independent carriers for my prior conditions. I'm really fucking dismayed and flummoxed. And if I do get fancy individual insurance it will likely never cover me for anything aside form the hernia which is not in any doctor's logs yet but it's really hurting like a bitch today and yesterday and I'm tired of holding my intestines in my stomach with my fucking hands whenever I cough or use the facilities (sorry I know that's gross).

Today I spent a long time deciding whether or not to do this plan -- somehow it looks like a scam to me, though. I mean, how can you save that much $$ and pay so little? I already gave them my SS# via their interface (OK I'm a dumbass) but there's nothing anyone can really do with my SS# aside from get turned down for any loan (or whatever you try to do with it) I hate to say! I guess I really need to start just playing the lottery. Yeah, that's it. Back to work!

Mike,

After I was laid off, I was able to set myself up a sole-proprietor of a business and qualify for semi-reasonable health coverage ($180/mo) through Coventry. An independent agent might be able to tell you if that can be done where you live.

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.
T
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
