I think it would be a great tribute to Rumpl to get us back together here on BFN.

I have spent time going back through Rumpl's posts, reading his opinions and seeing the rapport between him and many of you.

Looking forward to you starting a discussion on "Death Sux" Bri.

Still missing Rick here.

Death sux Sad it's a topic I wanted to bring up in another section, perhaps because I'm approaching thirty(lol not "old" I know, and most stop caring past 65)---wow I've actually been on here ten years---and have been dealing with it in other ways....but that's self centered of me.
What I'm getting to is that I miss Rick, this forum, and a lot of you.
I see a lot of us coming out of the woodwork, almost awkwardly like a funeral.
I always hated that thing where families only get together for weddings and funerals. Fuck that!
I say we get this forum breathing again. I'm as guilty as anyone. Rick would appreciate I'm sure.
I'll try to check in more often. I don't have a laptop or desktop now so typing is a little annoying, but that will change soon...and You can enjoy my annoying typing Smile

So good to see so many familiar names. Love y'all Smile


Sounds like a plan to me, bri Wink.

Hello to all of you BFN friends and acquaintances .. also after a very long time.

And as sad a reason this is, I needed to join you all again in remembering Rick. It's taken me over a month to log in and write anything; I've been in a surreal state most of the time, just coming to grips with the fact that Rick is not here anymore..and for me personally, there's a huge gap in my life that I feel every day.
To be honest, I've felt angry that I didn't know how sick he was.. even though I had asked. I asked his close friend Zach if he had tried alternative treatments like cannabis oil or any of the many things that Rick himself used to post about on facebook. Zach pissed me off when he said that Rick was very private and wouldn't want people to know what he did.. Zach didn't know how close Rick and I were. So I can't get answers ..and i'm still feeling pissed.

I'll get over it.

And angry about the tragedy that is the US medical racket.. He could not get insurance help ...even with Obama(don't really)care. That pisses me off to no end.

We became good friends after first meeting on a different forum.. from where he informed me about the Next Level :-) .. I was still stuck in the old lower level (fake) machine.. I hadn't seen the curtain, let alone the wizard behind it.
I kept noticing this 'guy' posting really out there comments about how it's all just theater.. saying things like 'controlled opposition' and the PTB.. I was completely disinformed, but didn't know it 'til I met Rick.

He thought I might be ready to take the next step.. and invited me here..for which I will forever be grateful. If for nothing else, just opening my eyes and mind to a reality that most US citizens are still in denial about, I am grateful to you Rick Manwiller.

I learned so much from him, and because of him, from many of you, first of all, Fintan and Kathy, and all the research done by so many of you .. and it made me a better researcher.. now I can usually smell a rat as soon as I hear most media 'stories'

But we became Skype friends, phone friends, and of course eventually facebook friends.. and then face-to-face friends. Since I'm a musician, we had a lot to talk about musically. He would send me CDs of favorite artists, he asked me to record back-up vocals on one of his Chocolate Detox tunes "New Shoes" .. that was fun and challenging to do .. I recorded them here in California .. he was just outside of Nashville.. Nash Vegas as he like to call it!

When Rick became a sound engineer for a few Nashville big label acts .. he traveled all around the US every summer in big tour buses. A couple of times he came to San Francisco, where i live, and we had a long dinner then went to a bar, had lots of great and quirky conversations, of course.. because that was Rick.. Rumpl4skin. He was so funny..
Another time he came through and invited me to go to a David Nail concert in Oakland and hang out on the tour bus.. smoked a doobie with him .. then later we all went to a club to listen to a jazz group..

I'll be upfront.. there was always an attraction between us, and we almost got together..but the timing wasn't right. But the connection was there and we acknowledged it, but more importantly, we remained good friends... i could call him or message him about anything ..

I've been an agnostic for most of my life and Rick told me he was a Deist.. his words, lol.. but it's times like these when I hope and wish that somehow we will meet the beings elsewhere that were once our most loved people here.

Warm hugs to all of you!
Gigi

I *really* miss him - I didn't realise just how much I was used to reading his posts which were *always* thoughtful, intelligent and really funny.

It's like one of those lessons that one always takes things for granted until they're suddenly gone... Crying or Very sad

Well, I had detailed PM contact with Rick in June 2015 on
medical issues related to vertebral injuries from a fall.
No mention to me of anything more serious.

Kathy and I got heavy expertise here on BFN re cancer.
Poster Starsludge is hot on the leading edge of research.
And between us all as members there's not much we miss.
But Rick didn't to my knowledge draw on forum members.

Anger is right. And tragedy is right too.
Rick's esophageal cancer was certainly a real eventual possibility
- given his general medical background. And it may have been triggered
early by medication. More on that in a while, but here's Rick in 2008:

Post subject: The Duodenum Diaries (Reprise)

I decided to chronicle my new diet, as per the Dogtor J audio
and Fintan's own trials and tribs over wheat withdrawal.

The Duodenum Diaries (Reprise)
http://breakfornews.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4103

In other words, it's not just a coincidence that a guy who started
a thread called The Duodenum Diaries - years later succumbs to
esophageal cancer. He had allergen/gut issues. Been there. Done that.

So, like me - Rick kicked the wheat/dairy - However, over time, is it
possible as a sound man on a road crew to achieve a 100% diet?

In any event these gut susceptibilities persist and dietary allergenic risk
is elevated. Avoiding nightshades and/or grains may be indicated later
in life. Wind the clock on 7 or 8 years and gut condition could be rather
borderline. With symptomatic outbreaks stressing the tissues.

Perversely, if you use popular stomach acid blocking drugs to counter
reflux, the long-term effect is to steadily worsen the underlying condition
by impairing gut function and inducing gut dysbiosys.

Enter NSAIDs? - Advil, Motrin, Nuprin, Aleve, Ibuprofen
Rick had a fall ahead of his terminal illness. I wonder did he
end up talking NSAIDS as treatment? Persistent doses of NSAID
will shred your gut mucus.

If you are borderline, that's tipping point:

Why Doesn't the Stomach Digest Itself?
Prostaglandins, NSAIDs, and Gastric Mucosal Protection
http://physrev.physiology.org/content/88/4/1547

Injury to the mucosa of the GI tract by NSAIDs is very common
and ranges from minor lesions such as petechia or erosions to more
serious (and also much less frequent) lesions such as ulcers...
Patients may eventually die as a consequence of these complications
http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/750226_3


I'm not playing 'if only'. No need. If Rick had a simple
but terminal fall, hey that's the shit that happens.

But everything is a learning experience. Especially here.
So I'm not ashamed to sleuth away into this.
FFS - Rick would regard us as wussies if we didn't!! lol Laughing

Anyhow, that's the thinking out loud so far.
Wink

I'd be very interested to hear your thoughts on these matters, Fintan - and I'm sure that Rump would approve of his situation helping others to be enlightened about those important health matters that affect us all sooner or later.




I still miss him...

Quote:
Dramatic rise in cancers of junction
between esophagus and stomach.


"These cancers were basically nonexistent
in the U.S. 30 years ago,"

NCI researcher Farin Kamangar, MD, PhD, tells WebMD.

"[In the past] 20 years or so there has been a 350% increase
in the rates of these cancers among white males in this country."

http://www.webmd.com/cancer/news/20061017/h-pylori-has-mixed-role-in-cancer


So, esophageal cancer in white males has
soared out of nowhere - since the mid-1980's.
Even as stomach cancer fell due to new
antibiotic therapy for ulcers.

If there's an answer to why that's happening,
then that looks like a big part of the picture.

I always found the idea interesting (and alarming) that the rise of esophageal cancers in smokers was due to the residual radiation in tobacco leaves from using mined rock fertilisers...

Bereft of life but freedom gained
Released from all our bounds and ties
At sentence end, our story told.
More than a memory of what once was
Creative font of that to come.

For there is more, as we go on
Beyond the pale and earthly veil
Returned to our more natural state.
Of being and not just a cog
in cosmic clockwork, time and place.

Fear not and do not grieve this loss
As that was just a passing phase
We'll meet again in a new space
To celebrate and consecrate
Our return to immaculate grace.

Laters, Rump!
