Cave, I think you can't post that whole thing here, just a segment and a link. I'm not sure, but I know from warnings issued on other forums that posting anything in it's entirety is a violation of copy-write laws and could get the forum, you, or both dinged with a fine. Or jail. Might want to check with a mod about it for sure, but just to be safe a sample-and-link or link-only to the article you want to feature is the safest way. Not to mention that limiting it to just a small sample won't crash older computers when we try to quote it. Just sayin'...

I think this is more of a case of his newer doctor with his newer insurer covering their butts. I've noticed that over the years it seems like younger doctors with fresher degrees are much more lawsuit-shy than an older doctor who knows his first job is to make his patient healthy and comfortable. ...
"... but the patient filed a complaint with the medical board...and now no doctor will take him as a patient."

I didn't mean that there was anything wrong with filing a complaint. I meant I think "tattletale" is how the doctors see it.

Ah, got it taxy! Like I said earlier, I think some doctors are more afraid of lawsuits and follow the exact, book-learned letter of the law than of trying to tackle a situation using common sense. Common sense isn't so common anymore...

Bazinga!

"There were 30,516 attorneys registered with the Japan Bar Association as of March 2011. That would be approximately one lawyer for every 4,119 people. By comparison the American Bar Association claimed over 1.2 million active attorneys in the United States. That would be roughly one lawyer for every 250 people."

Too many lawyers in Japan, says Ministry of Internal Affairs | Majirox News

What am I doing? Nuthin'. I should be doing something since I have gardening and cleaning and chicken to prep and freeze and.... Meanwhile, I'm mostly sitting and keeping LittleBit company. She's going through her "limp as a rag, throwing up a lot" phase again. Just last night she was tearing through the house like she was chasing a mouse. After I clean up this last "urp" (right in front of the bedroom door - thanks cat) I think I'll spend some quality time petting my sick charge.

When kitty feels better would someone please come and give me a swift kick? You don't have to worry about injury or a lawsuit because my hiney isn't tiny.

CG, I'm right there with you! I got up early this morning to volunteer with the master gardeners and now I'm resting my sore feet, sitting on the porch with a nice glass of wine.

We had our biannual Open Garden and Plant Sale today, as well as our table at the weekly farmers' market downtown. I took some muffins to the extension office for the volunteers' breakfast and then went to the market. There were more than enough people to staff the table, so I went back to the office to help out there and take pictures of the day for our Facebook page.

And I made these gorgeous deviled eggs for the volunteers' lunch. They were a big hit! :-)

GG, those deviled eggs are so pretty! What a fun way to serve them. How did you do that?

I just got back from errands. Got a lot done, despite the wind blowing me halfway across parking lots. Got a few things at Albertsons, went to Home Depot for a new toilet flapper and chose a new ceiling fan for the living room while I was there. Forget clothes shopping and the dreaded malls, I LOVE Home Depot, it's my favorite place to shop! Picked up a couple of things from the cleaners, stopped at a roadside stand for some yummy fresh picked tomatoes, hit a couple of yard sales, had the car washed and vacuumed out, and I think that's about it. Time for a glass of wine.
