Why? Laughter is just good medicine. If I ever think I’m starting to take life (or myself) a little too seriously, then it’s time to pop in one of the movies on this list. Several of them I travel with and recommend to widely to friends and clients. As far as this list goes, I

Written by dr. j. Posted in Rants

I couldn’t help but be a little outraged when I heard that Dr. Phil dr-philwas planning a  special on Britney after visiting her in the hospital. Even though he pulled the show, he lost a whole lot of credibility with me. The thought of doing a special on her plight was predatory, whatever the gain to viewers.
