Project: Overhaul 

OK, the time has come for me to take my health back.  I don’t quite know what took it; I’m guessing a little slide off a bandwagon here, a little liberty taken there, or maybe it’s more like a self-delusion here and some inertia there.  But who’s counting, and does it matter, if the end … More Project: Overhaul 

Kitty’s List, Part 2: More things I’m not allowed to do

Part 2 has long been overdue, so without any meaningful introduction… 61. Attempt to score points on someone else’s dartboard. 62. Share a bottle of wine with my sister. 63. Drive a somewhat-large rig while my siblings roll joints and light them in the back seat. 64. Bowling is not shot-put. 65. A riding lawn … More Kitty’s List, Part 2: More things I’m not allowed to do

43 Little things I’m boycotting

1. The Discount Economy – Groupon, LivingSocial, BuyWithMe, etc.  It erodes a local economy, devastates small business, and encourages a culture of getting something for nothing as a lifestyle.  Clipping individual coupons for mass-produced products is one thing.  Larger companies can typically absorb those costs.  Taking advantage of a horrible economy and small businesses’ fears … More 43 Little things I’m boycotting

Queen for a day

Recently, on a large social networking site, friend posted the question, “what would you do if you were President?” As usual, a laundry list poured forth into my mind.  Here’s by no means a complete list… #1 – Truth In Advertising First and foremost, let’s agree to say what we mean, mean what we say, … More Queen for a day

Facebook friends, I am probably going to piss you off

I mean, I’m just trying to be fair and upfront and everything.  See, I get quite a few friend requests based on comments I’ve left on the Facebook pages of friends or groups, or maybe because of a common “like” (think: interest).  Because I like to both 1) boost my friend count (kidding…kinda) and 2) … More Facebook friends, I am probably going to piss you off

Stupid things chiropractors do to mess up their lives

1. Use terminology that has already been taken, and give it a new “chiropractic” meaning. For example, the word “subluxation” really means “partial dislocation”.  It does not mean “spinal bone pressing on spinal nerve that destroys your life”.  What a DC (Doctor of Chiropractic) really means when s/he mentions a “(vertebral) subluxation” or the VSC … More Stupid things chiropractors do to mess up their lives

A tale of 2 seminars

They say the best doctors keep learning, and hopefully that applies to me–even if not today, maybe someday soon.  The area of study upon which I have focused a fresh set of crosshairs involves a cross between two desires: to further my intellectual arsenal (translation: more knowledge = better patient care) and to protect my … More A tale of 2 seminars
