Land of Shadows

April 30, 2017


Over the past two months I’ve been having some very trippy progressive neurological symptoms. I was fine before 3/3/2017, its been a fast onset. As of today its getting too painful to even use my hands. It might be Lyme, mold, cancer, mad cow… who knows… tests and more tests.  I hope to beat it, […]

Celebrating 10 years of Blogging

April 13, 2017


It seems I’ve been blogging for ten years on WordPress. Thanks, WordPress, for providing ever evolving blogging tools. Blogging strange news (+health and science breakthroughs) for over a decade has been fun. It always seemed a better hobby than other options. I hope my thousands of days of unpaid community service have helped you or entertained […]

Taking a break from blogging.

March 26, 2014


Hi Everyone, After years of almost daily blogging, I’ve decided to slow down a bit. Lately I’ve become exited about Open Courseware and the availability of entire training programs free on line as a supplement to paid courses and direct experience. What this means is I’m spending my free time learning in my field instead […]

As a journalist, Anna Politkovskaya’s fearless coverage of the conflict and human rights situation in Chechnya earned her international recognition. It also brought harassment and intimidation from authorities. She was detained, threatened and poisoned because of her work. In October 2006, she was shot dead at her home in Moscow. via Anna Politkovskaya | Amnesty […]

Welcome to 2012. What will you leave behind?

January 2, 2012


The first day of 2012 was beautiful. We sat on the beach watching the birds and a fantastic sunset and meditated on old things to let go of and new things we hope will manifest in 2012. Here are a few pics I took in case you missed the sunset today. As far as letting […]

Karma Experiment Results: Good deeds are punished

August 25, 2011


I thought donating my vacation time to helping feed people and helping friends instead of squandering my money on an island paradise might improve my Karma, but after returning to work from my vacation, I’ve experienced, instead, an obvious run of bad luck. Some people count their blessings, but I’ve started counting my curses: I […]

Long term complications after adult braces

August 17, 2011


I’m about to get braces, but two people have told me they had cracked teeth, lost teeth and more periodontal disease after getting braces. I’m interested in the best long term tooth health, even into my 90s. My orthodontist does not think a person who takes care of himself will have these problems after treatment. […]

Movie Review: The Change Up

August 10, 2011


I went on a date to a movie recently and she picked the film and I didn’t bother to see the previews or read the reviews. Mistake. See the movie “Change Up” if you are a guy with homosexual tendencies who would enjoy seeing a live naked baby squirt diarrhea into someone’s open mouth. Otherwise, […]

The Blog is back, long live the Blog

April 30, 2011


Despite the message from WordPress yesterday saying this blog was suspended due to a violation of the terms of service, as happened four months ago, the message and suspension was an error. What actually happened is an automated system that detects links to black-listed web sites was triggered to shut me down. I’m not sure […]

Rosie Vela

April 23, 2011


Today I got curious about the female singer who is singing with Jeff Lynne in ELO. It turned out to be quite  a story. Roseanne “Rosie” Vela, born in the coastal city of Galveston, Texas,  stayed with her boyfriend Jimmy Roberts, and married him in the hospital before he died of cancer. He sang her […]
