Pause in Blog

Reminder: If you have not done so, please read the Initial Post and  Blog Information.  At the upper left of this page above my picture click on the button, Initial Post and  Blog Information.

Well, this experiment has been less than successful.  I have made 29 posts over the last six months and only managed to attract about 1100 page views by maybe 100 viewers.  Maybe 10% of those were from Eastern Europe, including Russia, from web sites that were apparently trying to co-opt the blog for other reasons, i.e. hack into it for some nefarious purpose.  Who would think that was something people would waste their time on?

The book has been a slow seller; maybe it will catch on, eventually.  I like it, but I wrote it.  It makes what patients' doctors tell them easier to understand.  The price was right, if you had a Kindle or a Nook, or Kindle or Nook app for a computer or electronic device.  The illustrations are informative and it is entertaining.  The printed version by Lulu is too expensive. **** Cheaper printed versions are now available from CreateSpace and Amazon; see web sites listed below:****

Anyway, thanks to those of you who read the blog.  I hope you learned something, but I can no longer justify the amount of time spent blogging.  The information will be here (and in the book) and available for you to review if you want, but I will no longer be making regular posts.  If something comes up that is newsworthy, I'll make a post.  I will continue to answer questions from readers.

I guess to bow out at the 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month isn't a bad way to go for a veteran.  To those of you who were entertained and informed, thanks for dropping by.


  1. I found your website the other day and after reading a handful of posts, thought I would say thank you for all the great content. Keep it coming! I will try to stop by here more often.

  2. I guess he missed the title of the last post.
