In December 1917 Mansfield was diagnosed with tuberculosis . Rejecting the idea of staying in a sanatorium on the grounds that it would cut her off from writing,  she moved abroad to avoid the English winter.  She stayed at a half-deserted and cold hotel in Bandol , France, where she became depressed but continued to produce stories, including " Je ne parle pas français ". " Bliss ", the story that lent its name to her second collection of stories in 1920, was also published in 1918. Her health continued to deteriorate and she had her first lung haemorrhage in March. 
Speaking of backgrounds, these photos of Anna Roggenburk and Maddie Lynch are the two best OTZ photos of the season. If the background of these photos had been a rusty fence with cars in the parking lot , then these photos become simply "good". The background is extremely important. This is one reason why it was very important that OTZ be able to shoot with more "freedom" at States. As many of you know, OTZ had been prohibited by the OHSAA from selling photos from States and from even posting more than four States photos on the same page of this web site. It was an absurd restriction that was finally resolved last spring before the boys season.
It was in late 2005 that the status of methasterone, in addition to that of four other designer steroids, as an AAS was brought to public awareness by an article published in the Washington Post .  Don Catlin of the UCLA Olympic Laboratory, who conducted the studies, noted methasterone’s similarity to drostanolone. A warning by the FDA was issued soon after to the general public as well as to the distributor, Designer Supplements LLC, for the marketing of this compound.  Methasterone was subsequently added to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) list of prohibited substances in sport.  Despite all of this, methasterone has resurfaced within the supplement industry on several occasions since its banning by WADA.
