Happy Veterans Day!!

Love and appreciation to all of the DU vets!

I'm not sure why but this year I feel a bit melancholy, but I do love interacting with the vets here. Love you all and I hope that you have had an amazing day!

Happy Birthday to the US Marine Corps

One of the most amazing, unforgettable portions of my career were spent with you...much love from your Navy brothers and sisters.

What's everyone listening to this am?

I've got "Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust" going this morning in the office.

Let's go TN!!!

Popular bands or artists most people love...but you can't stand

Ok folks...we all have some funky, music nerd, eclectic tastes. But let's be honest, this is a safe space, you know there's some artists and bands that are popular that you just can't stand.

I thought it would be fun to have a confessional, of sorts, and air out our dislikes.

I'll go first:

I'm embarrassed to say I cannot stand Rush. It's like fingernails on a chalkboard to me and I really don't know why. Maybe it's Geddy Lee's voice. Maybe it's because I was first introduced to them by a guy who thought he had better musical tastes than anyone else and that annoyed me. I don't know...

Ok, who's next.

Twittler back at it...now he's an expert at baseball?


Watching the Dodgers/Red Sox final innings. It is amazing how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose & dominating through almost 7 innings, Rich Hill of Dodgers, and brings in nervous reliever(s) who get shellacked. 4 run lead gone. Managers do it all the time, big mistake!

Geez, THAT'S what his sick ass is concerned about tonight??

Dr Who Fans...thoughts on the new season and new Doctor???



No spoilers on the first episode, but I will say Whittaker is brilliant!! She certainly IS "The Doctor"!!

Mindfulness in the time of Trump

I just wanted to hear responses from the group. It seems most of the current news feeds into our suffering. How do we acknowledge that and turn that around in our personal lives? Thank you for your input!

"But he's being ugly to us!!" (Aka why it's futile to argue with a child)

A few moments ago, we were eating dinner as a family. After we were nearly through with the meal, I turned to my wife and made a comment along the lines of "Omg, did you hear what Trump said today in NC?? He told someone there to 'Have a good time...'". This comment was especially infuriating because we lived in Eastern NC for years and have friends that still live there and are being actively affected by the storm and the flooding.

So, our keen eared 9yo old is apparently listening in to our conversation and pipes up "Ugh..can't stand Tonald Dump! I mean it's in his name...Trump the dump should be flushed".

Because we live in an area with a lot of red sentiment, we do our best to encourage our kids to restrain from voicing their disdain of Trump to their classmates....but my wife and I couldn't restrain our laughter at this comment. I looked at our son and said "Well, bud, try not to be ugly with your comments".

"But dad? Why?? He's being ugly to us!!"

Well damn, I can't exactly argue with that logic!

Bow ties are cool! (For the Whovians)

Ok Whovians...had an awesome moment today. I love wearing bow ties, wear them all the time. On my rounds today, one of our surgery nurses goes "Love your bow tie". And I sarcastically go "Me too...bow ties are cool". She responds while rolling her eyes "Ugh, you're such a doctor"....
