For those of you who haven't read the series, it's a "love" story with S&M erotica. Not great writing but, whatever. The fun part was when I told some co-workers about the commercial. I asked what kind of accessories do you think they a... Read more

Sunday, February 01, 2015      6 comments

Working in health care for 40 years has given me some timely perspective of the ebb and flow of illness and people seeking help. Best time of the year to visit an ER? Forget Christmas, New Years eve and Thanksgiving. July 4? Busy as can be.... Read more

I told you so. I didn't say it, didn't have to. I sat next to the bed in the emergency room Tuesday watching the third bag of saline drip into the man who was too dehydrated to complain. He's smart but has been really, really stupid. ... Read more

Mental Toughness, blogging and Spark friends. A win-win-win.
Saturday, January 24, 2015      8 comments

Blogging on Spark has been my therapy. I don't have a physical personal journal, a diary to write my challenges and triumphs. You get a glimpse of my world when I'm stressed or joyful, trying to reach for a goal or a gentle "virtual" pat on the ... Read more
