Curious thought for the day

I know how bacteria and viruses spread. Basically they make copies of themselves and the copies go infect new cells. But how does cancer spread to new cells? Cause cancer cells are body cells. A lot of it I know is just the cells feeding off the body's own food, growing larger and dividing. But how does the cancer jump and spread to a whole nother body tissue?

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
