Medical errors still harm too many people but there are glimpses of real change

(The Conversation) In late November 1999, a TV producer called me about an alarming report that 44,000 to 98,000 Americans were being killed each year by preventable errors in hospitals and another 1 million were being injured.

Could that be true? Based on my research, I replied, the estimate seemed low.

 Khun Ocha's Cookbook

Pork satays

Everyone loves a BBQ, and satays make an ideal BBQ food.  Speared on a stick or skewer, you can eat single-handed while holding a drink in the other!  To make these pork satays memorable, marinate the meat in a Ziploc bag in the fridge overnight and prepare the skewers the next day.  It is messier, but the result is better.  By the way, use the commercially available peanut sauce you can get in the local supermarkets.


Book Review

Brannan the Movie

Stephen Cord’s third book is on the shelves, with the action set in Pattaya. Action with a capital A with somewhat of a different twist at the end.



Your new camera

Box Brownie.

I have never properly embraced the social media. I really don’t care what you ate for breakfast and I’m not into hugs all round. And as for “Amen”, I find it insulting at best and silly at worst.


Classical Connections

Sailing the Seas


Goethe (by James Posselwhite)

When I was a small boy and living on a grey island far, far away, there was a framed print on my bedroom wall which displayed the French text of an old Breton prayer. It included the line ma barque est si petite; votre mer est si grande.

Whoo’s there? Georgia family discovers owl in Christmas tree

Atlanta (AP) — A Georgia family got a real hoot from its Christmas tree: More than a week after they bought it, they discovered a live owl nestled among its branches. Katie McBride Newman said Friday that she and her daughter spotted the bird on Dec. 12. They had bought the 10-foot (3-meter) tall tree from a Home Depot,


Heart to Heart  

Dearest Hillary,

I went to your office this week with a bottle of plonk and all, to be told by your staff that you don’t work there anymore. Tell me this isn’t true. You are the only reason I buy the paper. And what about all the expats that you keep from throwing themselves off tall buildings (though I do say you have let a few slip through last year)? Please don’t go. On behalf of the troubled people please stay.

Film Review:‘Rise of Skywalker’ is a sour end to a grand saga

Not much has caused a disturbance in the “Star Wars” galaxy quite like Rian Johnson’s “The Last Jedi,” an erratic but electric movie that, regardless of how you felt about it, was something worth arguing about. The same can’t be said for J. J. Abrams’ “Rise of Skywalker,” a scattershot, impatiently paced, fan-servicing finale that repurposes so much of what came before that it feels as though someone searching for the hyperspace button accidentally pressed the spin cycle instead.
