Well, certainly for NCAA Basketball.......but also a packed schedule for March in general! Blossoms, wildflowers popping up all over the place, the time change, Saint Patrick's Day, Spring Break, the first day of Spring March 21st, Palm Sunday/Easter Sunday, cycling events, motocycle runs, inline competitions, golf tournaments, Doctor's Day, Albert Einstein's Birthday and even Dr. Seuss's! And the list goes on.........

Whoa....I'm planning to go snow skiing at Sierra Summit the last weekend of March....what a crazy contrast!

He's got a Billy Bass in one examining room. His assistant thoughtfully "lost" the batteries. I've known my GP for more than 20 years -- and I hope he takes me fishing one day for REAL bass (whatever they are).

I gotta ask him his take on three physician-to-be's profiled recently in the media.

There's Tracy Burns at UC David Med School who, the Sac Bee says, is an Oakland Raider cheerleader in her offhours and is featured in Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue. (If you Google her story, there's nothing tawdry or flighty about her take on life.)

On two memorable occasions when our children were young, my husband was offering his fatherly advice about "lives lessons" with the intent to keep our precious boys out of harms way. Our oldest son was traveling with my husband in his work truck and was satisfying his innocent childhood curiosities by asking a multitude of questions about the gadgetry on the vehicle's dashboard. One item that was particularly fascinating to our son was the cigarette lighter.

Wanna go nuts? Try to keep track of more than a smidgen of the 2,000 to 3,000 bills introduced EACH YEAR by legislators in Sacramento. So, over a two-year session -- when they are in session -- there are may be more than 5,000 bills to dispose of (that's way too many to act on).

Thought about taking a trip to Vegas. But not much into the gambling, drinking scene. And tickets for Bette Midler's show, the few left, were going for about $250 apiece.

Fortunately, if I want a mix of risk, puzzlement and blinding flashes of light, all I have to do is look at the news. For example, in Oregon, the uninsured had a chance recently to enter their names in a lottery. The prize: being allowed to apply for coverage under the Oregon Health Plan.
