Grandparents beware
2012-06-02 04:47:00
A reader of a certain age writes: I suspect most of your readers have heard about the grandson scam. This is the one where the caller pretends to be a grandson in trouble (accident, jail, etc.) in a foreign country and needs money wired fast. I got one today. It started out, "Hi Grandpa, this is your oldest grandson." I have grandchildren, but they are all girls. However, the caller sounded like my nephew. My nephew travels all over the world. The caller said he was in Europe. It is not at all impossible that my nephew might be in Europe, but I think he is in the Virgin Islands this week. To make a long story short, I believed the caller for a few moments, but I came to my senses and hung up after stringing him along for a couple of minutes. Our caller ID shows "Belvedere Ti CA (415) 366-9515, 1 minutes, 52 seconds, Today, 1:29 PM." I am assuming it is a spoofed ID.

William Balfour Guilty In Jennifer Hudson Family Murder Case
2012-05-11 12:31:00
Oscar winner was on hand when the jury read verdict convicting Balfour on all counts on Friday afternoon.By Gil Kaufman William Balfour in his booking photo Photo: Cook County Sheriff's Department/ WireImage After two-and-a-half days of deliberation, the jury in the murder trial of William Balfour returned a guilty verdict on all counts on Friday afternoon (May 11). Balfour was on trial for the murders of Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and nephew. The jury returned guilty verdicts on three counts of murder, as well as one count each of home invasion, residential burglary, possession of a stolen vehicle, and aggravated kidnapping. Because Illinois no longer has a death penalty, Balfour will spend the rest of his life in jail without the possibility of parole. According to the Chicago Tribune, an hour before reading the verdict, the jury sent a note to Judge Charles Burns informing him that they were split, but still working to reach a verdict. Around the s...

Dispatches From the Couch: Reflections on Last Night’s MODERN FAMILY Grea
2012-05-10 18:53:00
As a kid watching reruns of THE BRADY BUNCH, the one episode I was happy to watch over and over was the one in which the whole gang went to Kings Island amusement park. Other people wanted to see the mixed family hit the beach to watch Greg hang 10, but I was all about seeing them break every rule of theme park etiquette in their mad dash to get Mike’s sketches to the manager’s office before his butt could be fired. Over the years, I’ve tuned into shows I’d never watch under other circumstances just to catch glimpses of parks I’ve been to, hope to go to or know I’ll only ever experience vicariously. For seven seasons, I checked out the opening credits of STEP BY STEP just to watch the Lambert-Foster clan (headed by Patrick Duffy and Suzanne Somers) frolic at Valencia, California’s Magic Mountain. Heck, I even suffered through a painfully unfunny episode of DINOSAURS in which the prehistoric family were forced to vacation at WeSaySoLand… a pa...

Family Medicine Is Unstoppable Force

I finally got to meet AAFP President Dr. Glen Stream last week at the 2012 AAFP NCSC meeting. I know I have said publicly in the past, but I wanted to again praise the Academy for taking the proactive step of embracing social media with a leadership blog, an AAFP President twitter handle, an AAFP President facebook page, and more.  In the video above, you'll see the end of his remarks a the opening session of the NCSC meeting. He announces new membership numbers, the social media efforts of the Academy (love when he says "tweep" above), and the overall goal of increased communication. Family Medicine is definitely an Unstoppable Force. Go #FMRevolution!

It Starts At The Dinner Table?..

By: J Robert Giles @JRobertGiles ?Each day of our lives, we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.?   - Charles R. Swindoll   It?s a cliché to say that being a parent changes the way you look at things. Of course it does. For most of us, becoming a parent means an abrupt, loud, and completely exhausting end to the life we had led to that point. It doesn?t matter how old the parents are or how well planned the pregnancy may have been, once that child arrives, the world of the parent is a completely different one. Parents find a joy in seeing the world through the eyes of their children. There?s an indescribable sense of pleasure to be found in watching your child figure out a concept with which you yourself struggled as a child. Some are more momentous like watching them suffer a competitive loss but take away the appropriate lessons. Others are more humorous like watching a 7 year old boy in complete awe of the ?curly fry.? The feeling a parent has at the...
