Health Science 101 Guidelines

Greetings! Welcome to Health Science.

Here's where we talk about the latest fad diets, the advantages of vegetarianism, the joy of exercise and good health. Like everywhere else at Tweb our decorum rules apply.

This is a place to exchange ideas and network with other health conscience folks, this isn't a forum for heated debate.

    My last dog, Taz was like that. Unless it was food, he would ignore it. One time I actually caught him playing with a toy. But when he saw me noticing, he stopped and acted embarrassed or something and walked away like Joe Biden at a press conference.

He ran down the hall to get them, then stopped, stared at them for a a few seconds, clearly trying to figure out how to get both of them. Then he grabbed his frog, ran back and dropped it at my feet, then ran back and got the other one (a gator) and brought it back.

      I'm always still in trouble again

        Happens to me so often that I have to proofread specifically looking for words that are missing their last letter.

          We had a dog (Hamish). There was a feral cat in the yard, and my wife (Liz) told Hamish to "get the cat." Dutiful bloke that he was, he started barking his head off and chased the cat out of the yard. After that, anytime that the cat was in the yard, Hamish would chase it out - or so we thought. I looked out of the window one day, and there was Hamish cuddled up with the cat on the back lawn - I went outside ... Hamish looked back and forth between me and the cat a few times, thought for a few seconds, then started to chase the cat away. I yielded to the inevitable and made it clear that Hamish could make his friend welcome.

              I've only seen one owl in the 15 years since I've moved to Missouri. I thought I would see lots of them. Hawks, vultures galore, wild turkeys, and even bald eagles in winter, but only one owl. I need to get out at night more.

                A retired civil engineer friend was very articulate in conversation, and very interesting. In 2006 he had a stroke and lost the ability to understand language completely. He still cannot speak or write sense, but he can often say short rhetorical phrases that he used all his life, such as 'Well I never....' or 'Now let's see....' but they are out of context with anything that is happening around him. But he can still draw..
                He has full use of all limbs, vision, etc. I cannot imagine how he thinks now.
