Dogs put up with a lot, particularly what people name them. Imagine the what David Eitner, Doctor of Veterinarian Medicine comes across in his daily practice. I casually mentioned to him the prevalence of pretentious names people give their dogs I have encountered and he had plenty to say. It is hard to think of … More Dog Biscuits
Our children, it seems, face greater hurdles than they have in the past, and the hurdles are spaced closer together than ever before. I asked my long time associate and local clinical physiologist Dr. Barry Nyman Ph.d. into the studio to reflect on his long career and his impressions on where we have been as … More The Dr. Barry Nyman PhD Interview
We chose to go to the moon. We did so because we had faith in our leadership, our will, and our abilities. And we won. A clean win, no critical review, just plain victory. We beat the Russians there because we were better. We should remember that time.

I am in command of our German made SEBO star ship this afternoon. We suffered … More In the Vacuum of Space, No One has to Vacuum.
Tell Donald Trump I know his heart. What he told me before, I have it in my heart. I am angry and I do not know why, but I suspect it has a lot to do with television. I am tired of the veiwing. Our favorite series are killed; Gilligan’s Island is dead, Star Trek is cancelled. Seinfeld … More I Will Watch Television No More, Forever
“We had better get dinner started” June says to daughters Penny and Judy as the men load up their ray guns to go fight some aliens the robot has identified are approaching. I am not making this up, I actually heard this. After all they are Lost in Space, and someone has to do the cooking. … More The Space Family Robinson
I grew up in a village called Immaculate Conception Parish in the 1960’s.
