Please go to "My New Blog". If you want to see what I used to be like, read this blog. I've changed, although it is widely argued if that is good or bad.

I hate splinters
My daughter just got a splinter in her foot. It was barely visible but it made her weep as if she had lost a limb. It happens every time and it did again this time...she wanted me to take care of it but wanted me to do so without touching it. Now the fact that I am a doctor makes splinters something I have a great deal of experience with, but I have yet to develop telekinetic powers strong enough to remove splinters without touching them. I need to keep working on that.
That makes me wonder: what would I do with Telekinetic powers?
I'd play fun tricks on my Cat
Clean the room from the comfort of a nice chair.
You know, I can't think of a lot of things to do with telekinesis (at least, not a lot of nice things). Now, teleportation is a different issue. Good telportation would be quite handy, both to cut down on travel and to avoid certain people. Yes, I would like to be able to teleport.
I am a man of many hats. Father, Husband, Doctor, Musician, Computer expert, Public speaker, Writer. I love my job (I take care of adults and children). I love my family (although I do want to strangle my kids at times). I play the guitar as often as possible. I give talks around the country about why doctors should use computerized medical records, and how this would radically change how healthcare is delivered. I have OCD, ADD, and a few other things with 3 letters. Oh yes, I also think that being forced to have my Birth Sign and what animal year I was born in is really dumb. Sometimes I think about Random Questions.

Above is a Sesame Street Character who tells us what the terror alert level is. The reason for this is because while the whole idea of terror is...well, terrifying, the Sesame Street character softens it. I find it actually reassuring to know that these upstanding characters are vigilantly watching out for our safety. It really restores hope.
