Onward, My Minions!

As I’ve alluded to recently, I’m doing a new EMS podcast with Chris Cebollero, Inside EMS. Check out last week’s episode here. We just put our fourth episode in the can, and our listener numbers thus far are good. Good, not great. We need great to keep it going. I need your help to do […]

Go On, Touch My Maggie.

You know you want to. The folks at Praetorian Group, for whom I write a regular column on EMS1, have just informed me that I’m a finalist in the 2014 Maggie Awards, for “Best Regularly Featured Web, eNewsletter or Digital Edition Column/Trade.” This is my fourth time as a Maggie finalist, and I won the […]

They Laughed, They Cried…

… they held their lighters aloft and swayed rhythmically. Men bought me beer, and women threw their panties on the stage. You know, the usual.* Just got back from the ESCAPe Conference in Pipestem, WV and the Ohio ITLS Emergency Care Conference in Columbus, OH. Had a great reception at both. This is the third […]

Welcome to Adulthood

As of 2:00 pm today, I am in debt for the next thirty years officially a homeowner. And now that the papers are signed and the deed is done, I would like to say this to my FHA mortgage underwriters: You can call go eat a big bowl of dicks. Thanks for making my Thanksgiving […]

Happy Blogiversary To Me

On this day in 2006, I posted my very first entry on this blog. Seven years later, after roughly three million unique hits, four million page views (SiteMeter has been significantlyundercounting my hits ever since I switched platforms five years ago), and 2,045 blog posts, I'm still writing, and you're still reading. You people seriously […]

Leavin’ On A Jet Plane

And apparently, my host this weekend will be providing the Four B's: Boating, Beer, Burgers and Brats. Yeah, it's a […]

Happy Blogiversary to Me!

Actually, it was yesterday. Six years ago yesterday, I put up my first post on this blog. Six years, 1,885 posts, two and a quarter million unique visitors, three and a half million page views, and countless new friends. Thanks for reading, y'all. You guys rock.  

Overheard On The Bolance

Fussy Grandmother: “Now don’t you drop my grand-baby!” AD (winking at the child’s mother): “We do try to avoid such things, Ma’am. Too much paperwork involved.” FG (huffily) “Well, doesn’t that beat all! You’re more concerned with paperwork than taking care of my granddaughter!” AD: “Taking care of brave, pretty little girls like her is […]

I Need to Check My Sitemeter More Often

Entry Img

Topped a cool two million unique visits sometime earlier today. That was months after I figured it would happen, but I finally got there. I need to post more often. Thanks to all my readers for making it fun, and here's to the next two million. May they get here sooner rather than later. More […]
