This blog is an expression of my interests which center on health care, chronic illnesses, and our great political gridlock in the United States. I love animals and hope that we will be able to deal with our major issues of health care, the environment, effective governance, and non-effective communications effectively. I love unusual and positive stories. Humor keeps me alive. My wife, family, and friends send me "funnies" and things to laugh about most every day. I'll share what I can.
