Bad Meds, Movies and Misc stuff

I apologize for being absent, my wrist is still giving me aces now and so I try to give it rest.
A shout out to Cricket - Yes, Abby would be a great pal to hang out with!
So there is this horrible show called The Doctors on CBS, started up by "Doctor Phil". What irks me is that at times, these so-called pros give extremely poor advice at times and dumb down the medicine. Dr Lisa Masterson was the one who pissed me off the other day as she berated a so-called pregnant woman, I think the whole thing was contrived because this lady acted as if she knew nothing. This then allowed the ob/gyn to sound knowledgeable and adamant about what was going to happen to her fetus. She asked the woman if she knew what drinking did to her fetus, she had a cocktail now and then, because of that she was causing fetal alcohol syndrome and by smoking she was causing defects as well. The woman claimed to have no knowledge of what smoking did. The kicker for me was when "Dr" Masterson told her to get rid of her cats because of toxoplasmosis. Idiot, someone else can handle the litter box and meat for her. Also, because she ate a poor diet, the show was going to give her a year subscription to some food delivery service that prepares meals, god forbid you actually teach the woman how to cook and learn proper nutrition. It galls me that this show does well and people get their advice from these folks. It galls me more that she is a doctor at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles. You can check all their stellar credentials here.
And now onto stuff that does not annoy me. :)
Staying with the hotness that is Mark Harmon, if you never saw Stealing Home, please do.
Here are a few other flicks that you should check out and let me know what you think
The Boondock Saints
Stage Door
The Letter
Ravenous
Whale Rider

We are still house hunting and I swear NJ still sucks went it comes to prices in some areas. You go way west or south Jersey, you can do well. Why would I pay $369K for a blah home that needs a kitchen update when in other states I can get a superbly renovated house?? Or at least one that is not ugly at every angle possible. I am not a fan of new construction either but the prices elsewhere compared to here?? And do not give me that crap it is because we live next to NYC. That is no longer relevant to me as other cities have begun to flourish with fashion and arts. So here are some goodies to oogle.

Solebury Twp, PA
Doylestown, PA
Savannah, GA I do not love the kitchen in this one, but dammit it is a fabu house
Raleigh, NC again, not a fan of new construction, but this rocks
Wilmington, NC
Northampton, MA


That is all for now, chat more later!
Cheers!
