    it has been quite a while since i donated blood. i'll have to do it again sometime.
    my wife donates regularly though. the red cross is always calling her to come i, and offering tee shirts, and such. she also has O-
    they move her to the front of the line when she gets there.

    I can't give blood cuz I'm a wuss and I pass out. Something about a fat nurse with a large needle jamming it around in my arm... Makes me light headed just thinking about it.

    Dirty, you only have to wait 1 year after a tat.

    Speaking of which...I think my time is up, time to go give.

    Tam,
    Does it say if asthmatics can donate? I keep getting conflicting answers from people.
    *** Nevermind, I was finally able to get the link to come up. I kept getting an error message from the 'puter itself.

    I would have donated (if I can), but kinda hard when you run a daycare.

    Tam,

    That cert is about 4 years old or so - I generally go about 3-4x a year. When I was at Fluor I did it every 60 days - Red Cross came to us.

    Last time IIRC was about 2 months ago. I'm O-, so the vampires like me

    TB wasnt on the list of questions...check with the local Red Cross.

    Awesome! How many years did it take to do that? When was the last time you donated?

    BTW...I just got back. I have little teeny veins, and managed to pump out a pint in 10 minutes
