CHOO-Ahh! Reverse Sneezing in Dogs

Our Pug Princess, Pheobe (who you met in a blog post from earlier this week) experiences this sometimes. It would freak us out a little, until we found out what it was: some dogs do what is called, "reverse sneezing." She would make a series of snorting sounds, and it seemed like she couldn't breathe for a few seconds, but then she would be okay. If you have a dog that does this, you'll want to read this!

Study: Drummers Are ‘Natural Intellectuals’

I love it when science and medicine confirm something I've known most of my life! I hate to brag, but hey...this was a scientific study, and who am I to argue with scientists; especially when their conclusions serve to boost my ego a little? If you know (or are yourself) a drummer, this will make your day!

Making Wheelchairs Obsolete

We live in truly amazing times! Medical advances seem to happen almost every week, especially for those who have suffered an injury to their spinal cord. I have a "bonus" son (my preferred term for "stepson") who has a spinal cord injury. While he is not a complete paraplegic, he has to use a bulky leg brace to stand upright, and a cane to walk. This TekRMD® Robotic Mobilization Device could help him, and countless others who have limited mobility, or are completely wheelchair-bound. Check out this video!

Earl Pitts 12/3/13: Overblown Weather

TV weather people sometimes tend to go a bit 'overboard' when describing even the mildest of "bad" weather. At least, that's the view of our Redneck philosopher, Earl Pitts. He believes that the exaggeration that is sometimes a part of weather forecasts could be setting folks like us up for some REAL trouble down the road. You can listen to Earl's point-of-view commentary here!

Siri-ous Mistake

I need to make a public correction and an apology.

Earlier this week, I posted a blog titled, "Meet The 'Real' Siri." In it, I referenced a video originally posted on the tech blog theverge.com. The title of the video is, "How Siri Found Its Voice." The video shows the progression of synthesized speech, from early primitive computers to the Mattel® "Speak-And-Spell" toys and video games, all the way up to that familiar voice on our smartphones.
