Ok, the correct show is now uploaded. Sorry about that. The file names were apparently too similar for me to bother to tell the difference.

The song at the beginning and end of the podcast is "Dreams I'll Never See" - Molly Hatchet (1978)...

I was trying to desribe to Robert a method of contraception, but couldn't remember the term for it...and the only thing that came to my mind was a yarmulke...I was trying to think of "diaphragm".


"The Rape-aXe anti rape condom...

"...This device can later be used to identify the attacker and aid in the apprehension of the perpetrator.

"The Rape-aXe system consists of a latex sheath, which contains razor-sharp barbs. The device is worn in her vagina like a tampon. When the attacker attempts vaginal penetration the barbs attach themselves to the penis, causing great discomfort. The device must be surgically removed, which will result in the positive identification of the attacker and subsequent arrest..."


"Spider" in Spanish is "araƱa"...which is also slang for "vagina"...
A more common slang word is pinocha.(mexican brown sugar) Go into any Food City and ask for a pound of it!

Sleep and hibernation: frequently asked questions

Sleep is a power-saving state that allows a computer to quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds) when you want to start working again. Putting your computer into the sleep state is like pausing a DVD player—the computer immediately stops what it’s doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working.

Hibernation is a power-saving state designed primarily for laptops...hibernation puts your open documents and programs on your hard disk, and then turns off your computer. Of all the power-saving states in Windows, hibernation uses the least amount of power. On a laptop, use hibernation when you know that you won't use your laptop for an extended period and won't have an opportunity to charge the battery during that time.

notes about the August 24th podcast

We use Skype to connect to eachother, and had lots of disconnections...probably due to rain and thunderstorms that were in our metropolitan area.

There were problems during the recording of the podcast...our Skype connection was lost many times, as was the end of the recording of our session.


The only song by Jerry Reed I could find information about regarding smoking is "Another Puff", which I had never heard until after Robert mentioned it.

notes about the August 17th podcast


...KOLD showed a brief Skype video of the protest scene at 5...and then spent most of the rest of the block using Skype from the protest scene.

KOLD loves using the Skype computer phone/video technique. The station's logic is that by using a computer connection, the reporter can get to a scene and start reporting more quickly. It's also more flexible in terms of providing video from scenes that would be otherwise difficult to reach.

...The quality of the Skype footage paled in comparison to the more traditional live video displayed on the other two stations.

During one of our podcasts I mentioned that I had seen reports that girls are maturing earlier than before...and here another one...

Study: Signs of Early Puberty in More Young Girls


Tuesday, August 10, 2010

notes about the August 10th podcast

During the recording of the podcast, I did not fully understand what Robert was trying to describe to me...after recording the podcast, I found what he was talking about: it's "angiokeratoma". From what I've read about it, excision and grafting may be necessary to remove the lesion(s)...recovery time can range from three to twelve weeks.

Robert also has fibrous papule's of the nose and Poikiloderma of Civatte.
Thank God he does not need a ball grafting....Yet.

Don't play around with skin issues.


I like safety razors...

mainly because I don't shave very often, and need to use an "industrial strength" razor. (I know I really should learn to use a straight razor...)

notes about the August 3rd podcast

It's been estimated that bus riders are probably in the lower half of the income spectrum in Tucson...close to half the families are renters...


...a group of people...think if Sun Tran falls under the RTA umbrella, the poorest riders would not be protected from fare increases.

The city of Tucson is having budget troubles and the RTA has enough transit money set aside it says for the next five years at least.


RTA Executive Director Gary Hayes has pushed for the transfer, despite the fact that an Arizona Daily Star calculation shows it could cause a $72 million shortfall in the RTA's budget over 15 years. Hayes said that hole will be filled with operating efficiencies and federal grants.

Several nonprofit organizations and advocates for the poor...against the transfer because they fear it will lead to higher bus rates. Some bus riders said the strike would be a big inconvenience to them and their families.

Here's a basic and good one.



notes about the June 29th podcast

At 52 minutes into the podcast, I describe my bad experience with the television show "The Locator" that's on WEtv (Women's Entertainment).

Based on my experience, I strongly suggest no one participate with this program:  after the show was interested in reuniting me with my father, I was told by the private investigative agency that was being used (the "Investigation Consultant") that I needed to pay a fee of hundreds of dollars for them to proceed with the process.  When I initially agreed to participate in "The Locator", there was no mention of any fees at all...


Episode: The Suicide Tourist

Five months after being diagnosed with ALS, Craig Ewert arrived in Switzerland for his scheduled suicide. A story about struggling to live ... and deciding when to die.

"...The Suicide Tourist is a portrait of Ewert's final days as the Chicago native pursues a physician-assisted suicide in the one place where it's legal for foreigners to come to end their lives: Switzerland. With unique access to Dignitas, the Swiss nonprofit that has helped more than 1,000 people die since 1998, The Suicide Tourist follows Ewert as he debates the morality -- and confronts the reality -- of choosing to die before his disease further ravages his body, and he loses the option to die without unbearable suffering."

Olivia Munn looking good in a swimsuit...

And, Munn in a bikini that is unflattering:


An article about tinea versicolor is on the website of the American Academy of Dermatology.


And, after reviewing this podcast, I find Robert is correct in the upcoming June 29th episode/podcast:  (in an effort to be "cute and controversial") I was the person which insinuated that B.D.B. (Brian da Boss) may have ingested via his nasal cavity.  I was hoping to be able to blame it on someone else.  Now, I need to get Robert to say something that will get HIM into trouble so my comment can be overshadowed and overlooked..."Doh!"

notes about June 15th podcast

re:  D.O.M. (dirty old man)
One of my favorite lines is from the character of Fred Sanford in the television program "Sanford and Son" the episode, A Matter of Life and Breath (1972), he said:  "...and I'll be a dirty old man, until I'm a dead old man..."

Me, too...

(In the United States, internships provide employers with paid, or free, labor...)

"...federal regulators say that receiving college credit does not necessarily free companies from paying interns, especially when the internship involves little training and mainly benefits the employer."
