Some totally random musings from a totally random guy. Science, skepticism, some balanced woo-woo, a little politics, and hopefully, something to make people smile.

A recent trip to Gulf Shores ("The Redneck Riviera"); that's me in the green chair, plunking on the guitar. It was an enjoyable weekend, although somewhat wet. As a kid (some 40 years ago), my family came here often, camping out in this huge tent that weighed several hundred pounds and slept 40. Of course, there was nothing there then--no condos at all, a string of local mom and pop motels, and a few places to eat. It was truly beautiful then, and it still is, now, just a bit more crowded.
I'm a physician (OBGYN), late 40's, living in a small town in northern Louisiana. It's a big change, coming from the Big Easy, but then again, my life has been under considerable remodeling as of late. I am married to a beautiful Russian artist, who was nice enough to follow me on this adventure.
