    on Dec 31, 2011 in Uncategorized
    My OCD is good for something.  I cannot stand clutter.  Very minimalistic decor.  No nix-nacs.  No walls filled with pictures.   Sometimes much to my wife’s dismay I toss away things on the counters that I think are trash or haven’t...
  • What’s in our air?
    on Dec 30, 2011 in Uncategorized
    Air is 78% Nitrogen, only 20% Oxygen, 1% Argon, and the last 1% is a mixture of water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane (pew), etc. I was the atmosphere control officer on a Trident Submarine.  My job was to make air out of sea water.  Fill a huge 20&...
  • Constant Cold Feet
    on Dec 29, 2011 in Uncategorized
    Ice blocks for feet.  That is how a patient described his feet.  He told me it has been going on since he was a little tyke.  That told me a lot.  Meaning that it is probably not a circulation problem since as a little guy he hadn’t had the...
  • Flat Foot — No Shock Absorber
    on Dec 28, 2011 in Uncategorized
    We are all born flat footed.  We don’t need an arch until we start to walk.  Foot arches are shock absorbers for the lower legs.  Especially when running or going downhill.  The force can be 8 times greater than normal.  So it is great to...
  • Dermatographia — The artist in you
    on Dec 27, 2011 in Uncategorized
    As a kid I used to love those drawing boards that one could merely use the stylus provided or even their finger and draw or write and the words magically appeared.  Then you’d lift the sheet and it would vanish leaving you with unblemished sur...
  • Just How Contagious Am I?
    on Dec 26, 2011 in Uncategorized
    Cooties.  When we have green or yellow mucus we have cooties.  If we stay more than 5 feet from anyone our chance of infecting them drops 70%.  The bacteria or virus can’t stand the temperature change from 98.6 to 70 degrees.  If it is cold...
  • Medicines – 6 breaks the camel’s back
    on Dec 25, 2011 in Uncategorized
    Did you know it is impossible  to fold a sheet of any size paper equally more than 6 times?  Just as that is a universal law.  Another that is pretty darn close is that you cannot be on more than 5 medications and avoid any side effects or adverse...
  • Hard to Compare Medicines
    on Dec 24, 2011 in Uncategorized
    I know it must be confusing when tried on different medications.  You can’t even pronounce the names and sometimes you are unsure of the need for the change.  There are a number of reasons why we change medications around: 1.  Because they h...
  • Prenatal Vitamins — Not good if not pregnant
    on Dec 23, 2011 in Uncategorized
    When you are growing another brain, spinal cord, and entire new body in your uterus you need the extra stuff found in a prenatal vitamin.  The folic acid develops nerves, the iron develops blood cells, and the calcium develops bones.  It has quite...
  • Baggy Eyelids — Why Me?
    on Dec 22, 2011 in Uncategorized
    I need to slap my mom.  I inherited her baggy eyelids.  I feel like a sheep dog.  My upper eyelids droop over my eyeball.  Once on a bass boat we were going 40 mph and I could feel the air lifting my eyelids and making them flap in the breeze. ...
