Usually, the more sophisticated and advanced an item is, the more it will be desired for use. Then there are circumstances that disprove that...

This was the admonition from the Pediatrician today when our son took #1 grandchild in for a routine check-up. He's 95th percentile in heigth but only 25th for weight. The trouble is, how do you get a 2 year old to eat their veges? I suppose we could drizzle some milk chocolate sauce on them. I did purchase a juicer as a gift for their family and encouraged them to try juicing some veges/fruit mixtures and have him drink his veges...we'll see.

My husband was greatly distressed this last Sunday regarding an injury our grandson suffered while in our care. It was most innocent and truly a freak accident.

...I had refused. Yep! I was NOT going to have a dog at our home, that's all there was to it.

It was about 19 years ago, and our two sons had been hounding me (no pun intended) to get a puppy. No thanks...I had grown up with a menagerie and had had my fill.

Oh yes, they were going to do EVERYTHING and I wouldn't have to worry about a thing...they were willing to make sure the beast was fed, bathed, potty-trained, walked, and generally cared for. You know the drill. Nope-not interested.

Change in any industry is actually a sign of a dynamic and successful company. It's a "good thing" to make adjustments when needed, and it's best when creating a high threshold bar to institute a change. Consistency is also crucial in an attempt to foster the right balance.

...that's the reported percent of surveyed Americans admitting they don't follow the treatment plan from their doctors. When healthcare workers were asked if they felt the patients were compliant, 95% felt they were not.

I guess if this whole healthcare reform effort is going to work, somehow, there has to be more amenability and cooperation by patients to "follow orders" and patient/healthcare provider alignment. Sounds relatively simple, right? On paper it looks great and is an intelligent plan (if humans weren't involved-blah!).
