About Me

I truly believe that we will all live in peace and brotherhood someday. And so that I don't lose my faith in humanity, I will live my life as if that day had already happened.

"We're becoming the Wal-Mart of medical clinics!"

I just said that to my clinical staff out of frustration that our electronic health records network keeps dropping out. My MA supervisor told me that administration doesn't want to pay for upgrades, and that a while back, the entire IT staff walked out in protest.

The administration takes home some sweet salaries and bonuses, while clinical staff constantly have to get their union to push for pay increases. And now we have these computer issues that the admins don't want to pay for because the cost would cut into their $$$.

I swear sometimes...

Friday Night Wine-Buzz. Ask me anything.

How is everyone doing tonight?

What is it with guys and their shoes?

I've seen guys who are otherwise exceptional dressers absolutely fail hard when it comes to pairing their shoes.

When I was in PA School, there were events for which the students would need to appear in business dress. The guys would all wear these natty suits. One could always tell who among the guys were military veterans, because we were the only ones who polished our shoes. Most of the other guys wore ratty-looking, unshined leather slip-ons even with the nicest of suits.

I was at the opera a few weeks back, and saw a guy wearing a very nice, well-fitted tuxedo; guy really knew how to accessorize, too; studs, cufflinks, the works. And he was wearing a pair of the above-mentioned ratty black slip-ons.

Dude? Seriously!

I admit I go a little over on the other side of the issue. I own probably sixty pairs of shoes. One doesn't have to go that far.

But put some effort into it!

If Trump is brought down by pedophilia and sex trafficking instead of collusion with Russia,

I'm cool with that.

Just as long as he goes away.

To prison.

For a very long time...

My clinic manager is really starting to piss me off.

Bad enough he's invented a personality conflict with my best staff member in an attempt to get her fired. Now he's sending us patients from the mainstream clinic who should really be sent home instead.

He's trying to boost productivity, but he's doing by sending us patients who don't really need professional medical attention. Now I'm doing the kind of clinical medicine that could best be described as kissing the patients' boo-boos to make them better.

He cares more about the quantity of medical encounters than the quality of medicine we practice. It's what happens when you put someone with no medical training in charge of people who do have it.

I'm just hoping he leaves or gets fired soon. I've outlasted seven clinic managers prior to him.

Tonight, vodka and some sublingual cannabis oil.





This morning at the gym, the trainer told us to get a pair of dumbells.

When he looked at mine, he asked: "What are those? 25's? 30's?"

I wanted to reply: "Oh no. This one is Eric. And this one is Donald Jr."

But I didn't...

Welcome Aboard Colonial Airways Flight Two.

"Good eventide, my lords, ladies, and gentleman. My name is Captain Sir Frederick Canning Craighead, Esq., and HM has granted me the royal privilege of acting as pilot for the aeroplane upon which we shall travel to HM American Colonies and points West. I beg most humbly that all in this esteemed company will remain seated for the duration of our journey, and with your restraining lap-girdle secured all the while. The serving staff shall, upon the tolling of the bell, commence service of tea, champagne, and scones to all and sundry. The fair winds of Providence hath blessed us by speeding us at the tail with greater haste and expediency than was thought previously. And we expect a swift and safe journey for all. May Almighty God bless and protect you. I remain, dear lords, ladies and gentlemen, your humble and obedient servant. Many thanks to you all."

Friday Night Wine-Buzz. Ask me anything.

I love you all...





The Trumpanzees must be thinking: "Did we have airports in 1776 under Obama? NO!

Gawd bless are Prezdint!"
