    I had the pleasure of spending an entire day recently at a local coffee shop due to a power outage at my office.   As you may have guessed, the mere thought of being without Internet access was completely unacceptable.  The plan was so to sit, peck away on the laptop, drink coffee and soak up …

    Personal Brand M.D.

    This past weekend, I had the good fortune of attending a picnic in my neighborhood.  Have I ever told you how much I love picnics?  As I sat there consuming anything in sight, I struck up a conversation with a physician who, like me, was enjoying the barbeque.  He began to tell me about an …

    The other day I traveled across the country and something rather unusual took place I thought at the time.  For some odd reason, I did not speak to a single person the entire trip.  This includes from when I parked my vehicle at the airport until I arrived at my destination.  …
