Bedside Manor

SoapboxSmilingWpC"Doc Martin".

Pure snooty British comedic soap opera.

Colorful setting. Colorful characters.

Guilty pleasure.

 

Fogey heaven.

Love One Another

AbsenceMakesWebCYeah, yeah, yeah...Valentine's Day is supposed to be all about romantic love and wild sex. Noble causes, both, but why leave it at that?

Why not expand the notion, make it a big day of love, as in "Good Will Toward Others Day".

Remember when you were a kid and you gave cards to EVERYONE? And you got a card from everyone, too. Good times.

Be nice to someone this Valentine's Weekend!

Check out this link. It's amazing the thoughts that run through people's heads:

Grammyatically Incorrect

Grammys2015_WpCOh, crap, the Grammy's return this weekend. The epitome of noise pollution, an assault on the senses...and the sensibilities.

What's not to like about lingerie, trapeze artists, and pyrotechnics, you ask?

Nothing!

It's the music that's intolerable.

Unfriending Facebook

Unfriending_WpCIt is reported that young people 13-17 years old are dropping their Facebook accounts faster than they can drop their last crush. Those y'utes want nothing to do with fogies who can spy their shit, and worse, fogies that clutter their News Feeds with the latest pics of the grand kids...who happen to be THEM!!!

Could we be entering a new Age of Enlightenment?

Don't count on it.

Facebook refugees are flocking to other social media options so they can continue to riff their narcissistic tendencies in greater privacy. We used to call it "going downstairs to the rec room".

Check out some these emerging trends in the social media chase here:
