My friend Kendra used the Megabus several times. The bus can run up to 2 hours late and is sometimes late picking people up. It also goes to unusual places for pickups where you might not want to stand alone. There might be a glitch if too many people have reserved a spot.
Kendra likes the cheap price but said some of the drivers aren't very good. She is not a nervous passenger so that says something when she makes that comment. She said sometimes when they run late they try to make up time by driving really fast including the one that was 2 hours late.

> Hi Everyone,
> Virginia is in Lake West Hospital again. She went in Thursday night with chest pains. The doctor doesn't think she had a heart attack this time, but he's keeping her in the hospital until Monday, when they will do dialysis in order to rule out the possibility of heart attack. They're also going to do a scope on Monday to see if the lining of her intestines is completely healed from the ulcer. They also found cellulitis in the side of her leg, the same leg where she had the infection in her foot a couple of months ago. She has a phone in the room, and the number is 440-918-6357.
> Has anyone heard of or had experience with a service called megabus.com? I was thinking of using it to get to the convention in Detroit. A sighted friend has used the service several times and thinks it's good. The price is lower than than with Greyhound, and you go directly to the bus stop in the city where you are traveling, without stops along the way. On one hand, I think I should try it since it's lower cost and direct service to Detroit (though not to the hotel); on the other hand, I'd like to know if more people have had good experiences before I try it.
> Finally, I'd like to tell you about a diabetic support group of blind people on internet radio. I've not tried it because I don't get on the internet, but in case someone would like to try it, here is the information.
> It's called Diabetes Round Table and is heard on Saturdays at 11:30 A.M. Eastern Standard Time. Go to www.cjoyinternetradio.com, or call 309-946-5300, code 990551 (not tollfree). You'd go to the internet site if you just want to listen, you'd call the number if you don't have internet or would like to talk on the round table discussion. It's a diabetic support group where you can talk one-on-one, an informal group of blind diabetics.
