I've been taking advantage of my incarceration (just kidding) to catch up on some TV viewing. That's between trying to get some work done around the house, auditing ambulance calls, and running reports for my client agencies. At some point,...
Those of you old enough will remember when Rush Limbaugh used that tag line on his radio show until the Republicans took back the House of Representatives in 1994. I'm using that phrase in a sardonic way, although in some...

Staying Occupied

Since the world has in many ways ground to a halt, I've been looking for things to do to keep busy. What passes for post retirement work has pretty much stopped as the doctors are to busy to read and...

I'm not making light of the potential for illness and death from the Wuhan Flu virus, but the hysteria has gotten out of control. The media is treating this like an ongoing terrorist attack. News outlets are spreading wild rumors...

All About Me

After a long career as a field EMS provider, I'm now doing all that back office stuff I used to laugh at. Life is full of ironies, isn't it?
