Shaken, Not Stirred? Or one for the road...

Some British researchers with far too much time on their hands took to task a look at Ian Fleming's super spy James Bond, with particular regard to his alcohol consumption.  Postulating that his level of alcohol intake may have caused a tremor, they wondered if this might be the reason that he preferred his martinis "shaken, not stirred."  Never one to let a story such as this rest, MedPage Today asked me to contribute to a piece called

Bond's Martinis Shaken by Alcohol Tremor?

and here is the result, with some video clips of my, and others, responses to questions.  And you do want to view the video, it's the best part! This is just a perfect piece for the holiday season. Cheers!

It's That Time Of Year!

Yes, it's that time of year, again.  No, not the "Holiday Season," or anything like that, it's the time of the year for coughs and colds.  Covering your nose with a tissue.  Wiping off the doorknob with disinfectant.  You know, that time.  So, when a reporter from Health Magazine called me for some of the tips I follow when I get a cold, who would have thought this little tidbit would make it into the magazine?

20 Surprising Ways to Prevent Colds and Flu

And then I really was floored, when the same title popped up on the Fox News website!

Who knows where I will pop up next?
