    That is hilarious and lots of old boomers just love Peter but I still don’t think most over-50′s are going to get colonoscopies for routine screening.

    Stated affectionately! I am a wise old boomer myself and most of my colleagues/friends have been advised to get routine screening colonoscopies-they envision an embarrasing, invasive, potentially ouchy (sorry too much time in peds) test and think to themselves, “Yeah I’ll get right on that.”.

    Peter, what a great original song with your typical ENTHUSIASM and gestures to make this very effective!!

    This one means alot to me; my late mom, Alice, died 20 yrs. ago 7-22-90 of colon cancer to the liver before it was discovered although she had gone to endless drs. for 7 yrs. trying to find the reasons for her vomiting 24/7 spells, etc.

    Peter, my sympathies to you on the loss of your beloved singing partner, Mary! We loved you 3; enjoyed the new PBS special & taped it.

    Peter, you were great in Des Moines, Iowa for the annual VARIETY CLUB fundraiser several yrs. ago. You mentioned you were going to bring your singing partners, Mary & Paul, next time; too bad this didn’t occur for old times sake.

    40 yrs. chronic lyme/tick disease
    34.5 yrs. misdiagnosed by 40-50 drs…UNACCEPTABLE!

    Chronic lyme/ tick? Goes great wtih fibromyalgia and environmental allergy syndrome. All a conspiracy of big pharma to keep us enslaved when they refuse to diagnose these things properly.
