Beer and Incontinence (Cont.)

I know you have been wondering about the results of April’s “test”. The Jury is still out. I’ve tasted eight new brands.  So far, I’ve run across a couple that I would order again:  Negra Modelo and Pacifico.  I can see that this will take some more testing.  Some of you more experienced tasters might […]

Get A Job

Today’s job market is highly competitive. No longer having a college degree guarantees success in the workplace. With more and more jobs going overseas or becoming specialized finding employment can be difficult for able-bodied people, never mind the thousands of folks with physical limitations. Furthering your education can be time-consuming and cost-prohibitive as well. How […]

From Scotch to Craft Beer and Incontinence

Welcome back friends! I’m not a drinker –  However, back when I was thirty, I found some magazine that listed the twenty best scotches. (If it had been the twenty best bourbons, I would have tried them.)   I went to my doctor friend and said, “I’d like to become a social drinker, but I don’t […]

Take a Walk Without Worry!

Welcome back friends!

Victory Gardens, Gas Rationing and Men’s Liberty

My parents taught me not to waste anything.  Our village had victory gardens. Because of World War II and gas rationing, we practiced conservation.  If driving sixty miles from our house to Williams, Arizona while maintaining a speed of thirty miles per hour would save gas and tires, then my father took two hours to […]

Hearing Aids and Male External Catheters

What could possibly be a connection?  In 1999, my wife and I received our first set of hearing aids.  It didn’t matter how they looked as long as we could hear.  Then, an interesting thing happened:  We met people that were too embarrassed to be seen with them.  In one professional group, we set up […]
