Circumstances had changed, and all these documents needed to change, too.
The first geriatric cardiology clinic in New York opened at N.Y.U. Langone Medical Center in August. It’s different.
One in five nursing home residents was involved in mistreatment of a neighbor in the previous month, a new study found.
Saving money isn't really the point of hospice care. Still, a new study found that cancer patients in hospice incurred lower costs in the last year of life than those not in hospice.
Physicians too often fail to address the needs of caregivers, a clinical review finds.
Quite a while ago I read that the rules had been changed and Veterans were now allowed to use a standard hand salute when in civies instead of the old hand over the heart business. I'm a bashful sort of fellow and didn't want to be the first to do that. Show More Summary
I usually wear my wristwatch almost 24/7. I don’t believe that it is waterproof so it comes off for showers, shaving, swimming, etc. This morning I showered and then flopped on my comfy chair in the living room. I fell asleep while reading the paper and woke up with no idea what time it was - no watch. Show More Summary
Folks may wonder what I have been doing that has kept me from the business of keeping up with blogging for the last three months. Well, my 85th birthday sort of got me thinking that I didn’t have a lot of time left and I should be using what time there was in “doing” instead of writing about things I had done. Show More Summary
I love the story of the flight attendant that blew his stack at the passenger who thought the rules didn’t apply to him/her. When I was very young, I got furious at my boss. I went to the locker room, got my coat, and went home – at 2 in the afternoon. Show More Summary
After a brief (?) pause, I hope I am back for some more blogging. While I have been off, I've had the misfortune of having to watch a lot of commercials for the various candidates for governor and US Senator. This year there was no fooling around. Show More Summary
$106,000! That’s one hundred and six thousand dollars!! That’s how much the hospital charged for the simple little angioplasty I had last month. That doesn’t include the surgeon who did it nor the anesthesiologists that put me to sleep. Show More Summary
Do you have any idea how many old folks are standing back on the boardwalk wishing they could walk down to the water and out a few yards?Can't some clever fellow develop a "sand cane" based along the lines of a ski pole which could assist walking in soft sand. Show More Summary
Oh Gosh! We elect a guy from Chicago and what should we expect? He opens the whole Atlantic coast line for oil drilling! Those mid-westerners have no appreciation or love of beaches!There is something that puzzles me. We catch law-breakers, put them in jail, and it costs the tax-payers a fortune to keep them there.

While talking food and all the current emphasis on eating healthy the other day with a friend, he said that he had no objection to eating “healthy” at home; but by golly, when he went out to eat, he wanted to eat "UNhealthy" and enjoy it! The picture above is just to show that I think he has a useful and valid philosophy. Show More Summary
My conscience never kicked in. It was overpowered by laughter. I flat-out stole the following from Kenju's blog IMAGINE...(Always a source of Joy.)1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die. Show More Summary
One of the good things about being old is that you can reread old mystery books knowing full well that you have read them before but without the faintest clue as to who-done-it. A corollary to that is that you can stay up all night finishing the book and sleep in the next morning no matter what day of the week it happens to be. Show More Summary
GOLDEN YEARS, my A! Ooops! Sorry, every once in a while that thought just bubbles up and out. We just went to the super market and it hurt going, there, and back. The driver that takes us is very nice. He lets everyone else out at the entrance, then drives me the 75 feet to the exit where the electric carts with the big baskets are parked. Show More Summary
The other day I was reading an article, I think it was on ThirdAge.com, about how to age gracefully and happily. It made several points, but the one that struck me was about being foregiving. It quoted the old saw that holding a grudge...Show More Summary
Well, the Air Force is again shuffling injured Hatians to hospitals in the States despite the Florida governor. The poor governor is trying to win the Republican nomination to run for senator. However, the choice of the Tea Party crowd has gotten the edge over him. Show More Summary
