Pediatric Grand Rounds

Pediatric Grand Rounds are up at Sam Blackman’s Blog, MD. I hadn’t thought of contributing actually, in a long while. I have healthy children and though there are a lot of subjects near and dear to me relating to kids and sometimes relating to medicine, I haven’t had the time ...

What makes a person snap?

Once upon a time, Salt Lake had trolleys. The main station was transformed into a mall. Trolley Square is a landmark place here and a fun mall with great restaurants. We’ve been there several times. I’m glad we weren’t there yesterday. I turned on the news this morning to hear about a gunman, ...

Finished King’s “The Stand”

“You aren’t really liking this book, are you?” asked my husband. You see, I hadn’t quite yet finished it. What was interesting was that it laid around with just a little over a hundred pages to go for well over a week. That is the climactic end that is supposed ...

Speaking of Books

I just found out that one of my all time favorite books was rereleased about 5 years ago. My original copy had long ago been destroyed, and the copy I’d found at a garage sale has also almost completely fallen apart. Luckily, the new printing is in a sturdier format than the original. ...

Writing Critique Group

Tonight, for the first time in nearly 2 years! One of my stories, an old one, is being critiqued. I’m critiquing two others. I’ve offered critique to a couple of my fellow bloggers and haven’t gotten around to it. I’m sorry about that. Poke me, get on my case. Send ...
