I am primarily using this blog for medical professional reasons, but we all need a break from work stuff now and then.

If anyone has seen the movie Munich and liked Speilberg’s portrayal of the incident should also watch the movie: The Sword of Gideon (1986) starring Steve Bauer and Michael York. Great movie, with a real humanistic ending. Both were based on the same book Vengeance (1984) by George Jonas.

My hobby is history and events and the social ramifications of such things. For instance did you know that we banned opium, a legally distributed pharmaceutical at the time, because American businessmen were worried that while they were away their wives were consorting in opium dens because of the addiction acquired by prescription from a doctor. To simplify, opium was made illegal in Chinese communities and later nationally for the reason that white males did not want Chinese immigrants sleeping with their women. Similar stories with Filipinos (see Carlos Bulosan author) and other immigrant communities that were brought here to create the infrastructure of this country.

Never gonna use guitar tab sites anymore. Found a site with the rhythm tabs called Songsterr.com. Freaking great. Learning David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust and Billy Idol’s Cradle of Love.
