The Immortal Cell: Why Cancer Research Fails

Book Review: The Immortal Cell by Dr. Gerald B. Dermer

The Immortal Cell: Why Cancer Research FailsI don't even remember where I was introduced to this book or this author, but I know it has helped shape my thinking on modern cancer research. Why am I interested in cancer research? I don't even know, other than the fact that we spend so much on it as a society, with so few results.

The premise of the book is that a large part of the cancer research establishment is using a flawed approach by conducting their research on cell lines that have been cultured in petri dishes for decades. This is not an accurate basis for curing cancer, Dr. Dermer argues, and he makes the case pretty persuasively.

Book Review: Love and Respect by Emerson Eggerichs

Love and RespectOk women, brace yourselves....

I’ve read many marriage books and attended many bible studies on this topic and I have to say that most of the time wives are given the easier pill to swallow when it comes to resolving marital conflict. There seems to be an undertone that the real problem lies with our husband, but in order to make peace in the marriage we must accept our small percentage of the problem. After all, we have to admit that it takes two to argue, right?

Camping at Black Rock Campground Near Idaho City

Micah with gopher snake at Black Rock Campground, IdahoOver Labor Day, we camped at Black Rock Campground, which is about 45 minutes off-road from Idaho City. It's a pretty area, tucked in next to the North Fork of the Boise River. The fishing didn't look that great, since it's only about 18 inches deep this time of year, but the kids had a blast wading in the river. Good thing...I forgot to bring the fishing poles. But we did catch a little gopher snake!

Going on Labor Day weekend was a bit of a gamble, since we didn't plan the trip in time to make reservations. So we just went hoping to find an empty spot, and we lucked out. There were two spaces with reservation tags on them, but one of them had expired. I think other last-minute campers probably saw the tag and left thinking it was full.

Saty and Sarah on the day of their baptism
Saty and Sarah on the day of their baptism
I have awesome news to share with everyone. Saty and Sarah were baptized in the Boise River on Sunday, January 6, 2008! It was unbelievably cold, but a very joyful day!

We made plans on Saturday when it was only sprinkling outside and relatively warm for a January day (in the forties)—but woke up to a beautiful snow-covered landscape on Sunday morning!

As cold as it was, it was beautiful, and so cool to have my niece Robyn and little Diego here to share it with us!

We used the take-out ramp at Ann Morrison Park where rafters can pull out in the summer. It's located just west of the foot bridge.

I've been working on the perfect steak for years, and I thought I'd share the results of my labors here. Steak has become almost as much of a passion as homemade ice cream.

Sweet bourbon salmon recipe

This recipe is a variation of the famous Lone Star Steakhouse sweet bourbon salmon, adjusted to my tastes and family size. If you don't like fish normally, you might like it prepared this way. It's not fishy at all.

(Thanks Daniel for providing us with a nice supply of fresh Alaskan salmon!)

Book Review: Divorce and Remarriage: A Redemptive Theology by Rubel Shelly

Divorce and Remarriage: A Redemptive Theology, by Rubel ShellyDivorce is not a good thing. Author Rubel Shelly emphasizes this repeatedly in his book, Divorce and Remarriage: A Redemptive Theology.

    You cannot imagine today the problems you will create for all your tomorrows by getting divorced. You will be alienated not only from a former spouse, but from a host of people more closely linked to your mate than to you. The financial repercussions will be horrible. And there will be agonizing times of guilt, compounded by a sense of self-doubt. (Divorce and Remarriage, p 9)
