A year or few ago, a regular didn't post for longer than a month. He
responded to my enquiry that he was visiting the country of his
ancestry and not posting.

More precisely, cancer of the esophagus. This can arise from
acid reflux, a burning sensation after eating too much
of the stomach acid rising back up but one does not quite
vomit. It can be treated with drugs.

You can read about this at http://healthlink.mcw.edu/article/942793215.html
"Barrett's Esophagus and Acid Reflux"


"Barrett's esophagus is a change in the lining of the esophagus as a result
of acid reflux from the stomach. The chronic irritation from acid causes the
cells lining the inside of the esophagus to change to be more like stomach
lining to withstand the acid. That's why you take Prilosec to stop the acid
production in your stomach."

"Barrett's is seen in about 10% of patients with gastroesophageal reflux
disease (GERD) or heartburn who have endoscopy (a direct look with a scope
at the esophagus and stomach). GERD is quite a common condition, and
probably 20% of people who have it do NOT have classic symptoms of acid
reflux, but may experience hoarseness, cough, asthma-like symptoms, or
increased mouth saliva."

It was a largely unrecognized disease by the laymen until recently.
Most doctors will prescribe something to prevent it, if one has
had it for a long time one should have an endoscopic exam. I had
a friend who has suffered for years with the disorder but
fortunately detailed examination showed no cancer.

I remember him and he was a nice man. May he rest in peace and may his loved
ones find a little bit of comfort in the knowledge that he is remembered
fondly.

Thanks for posting. Robert was always knowledgeable and helpful and
interesting. Also gave me some good tips on finding french pastries in NYC.
And, iirc, was the first to post Jack's r.t.e posts onto a web site.

Very few of today's purveyors of trivia would remember Jack who was pestered
into leaving us. More's the pity.

I remember him, too. Never did understand the pestering.

The pestering was a bit overboard, but I could see the point to a
certain extent. He was always willing to answer questions, and was
very knowledgeable about Paris, but he also posted a large number of
messages every day, each announcing the update of some aspect of his
web site. I suggested to him several times that one message a day
listing all the changes would be sufficient, but he didn't want to do
it that way.

Our self-appointed FAQ purveyor (who was primarily
responsible for said pestering) has not been much in
evidence here lately, either - for which we may all be
thankful! (Bad enough he occasionally posts his entire FAQ
here, instead of merely providing a link for anyone
interested enough to pursue it.)

While he obvioulsy put a lot of work into the FAQ, IMO what is needed
is a concise two or three page FAQ which prepares people for the
group, and explains how to get useful responses.

I'd do it, but it'd be too sarcastic.

The problem is that Yves is a friggin' prat (or maybe just a typical
Quebecker...???)...

Aw come on then, DFM, you'd be *perfect* for the job...!!!

Here's how I handle that:
The frequently-updated SPECIAL EVENTS page has irregularly-scheduled
music and dances as well as links to seven calendars of
regularly-scheduled dances, a composite of five of them, and one of
dance cruises and events around the world:
http://geocities.com/dancefest/Specials.html

Most recent update was a cuppla hours ago.
