The American Creed

“I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
I, therefore, believe it is my duty to my country to love it, TO SUPPORT ITS CONSTITUTION, TO OBEY ITS LAWS, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.”

Treatment of Choice (Book #1 in The McFadden Series) Available on Smashwords

Treatment of Choice has been re-edited! It’s the same story, so don’t worry if you own the earlier version. I fixed structure errors and other technical issues. The books in the series have new covers!

The new version is also available on Amazon in hard copy format and Kindle.

Dances with Wolves

Just finished watching Dances with Wolves. An incredible movie worth watching over and over. One of my favorite selections from the soundtrack is Fire Dance.

Not So Complicated

Complications, book #3 in The McFadden Series, is coming together nicely!

Song: Love Me With All of Your Heart

I believe my character Bryan McFadden would do a superb job of singing this song. In fact, he might just sing it at John Reynold’s party on his yacht to the delight of the guests.

Ending Sentences with Prepositions Works for Me

Girl, You’re Almost a Woman by Neil Diamond

Just posted this on FB, but wanted to add it here, too.

I can see my book character Buddy singing this song with the band. He’s gay, but when Philip’s girlfriend Amber hears the romantic charm of Buddy’s voice during a rehearsal, she can’t help the crush that follows. How does he react when the pretty, blue-eyed blonde teenager suddenly sets her heart on him? Does Philip know what’s going on? Sure would make a good scene!

 

Body Weight Support System

Here is an image of a body weight support (BWS) system, much like the equipment Devon and Buddy used in The McFadden Series!

Locomotor-training

 

As you can imagine, the therapists get a workout, too.

Do I Make Up the Therapy Equipment Described in The McFadden Series?

I love technology, especially when it’s applied to orthopedic rehabilitation!

Scared to Visit Florida? You Should Be!

NBC News TODAY:

I wrote an article on Florida’s python problem four years ago…

What’s worse than 12 feet of hungry alligator with jaws that can snap shut with 2,125 pounds of force? How about 20 feet of Burmese python that’s not afraid to try and squeeze the alligator to death? The gators are holding their own for now, but the infestation of exotic pythons continues to devour wildlife animals in Everglades National Park. Read the article:

Incidentally, pythons aren’t the only predators to endanger southern Florida’s delicate ecosystem. There are plenty of invasive species to scare away visitors, destroying the southern tourist industry. I wrote this article years ago, too:

Florida Inhabited by Invasive Species that Could Scare Tourists
