'' Hello Ms. Stoner, how are you feeling too-day? My name is Doctor Olgee, pronounced Ol-gee. I'm quite sure Dr. Harris has already explained to you that I will be meeting with you.'' said my new shrink, doctor, competition. Introducing himself in some Indian like accent, like Dr. Harris told me, Dr. Olgee sat in as one of my doctors during my evaluation. A strange speaker he is. Already on our first day of meeting and he was playing psychological mind games. '' No, Dr. Harris haven't ex... read more »
How do I get my child to do his homework? He can focus for hours on video games but can't finish any homework?
I often get asked this question, by both parents and teachers of students with ADHD who find it confusing that a child can spend hours doing something they "enjoy" but can't focus for 10 minutes on some math or reading assignment. Well, first you have to understand the problem with variability of focus and concentration is ADHD. It's not being lazy, or refusing to do what a parent or teacher a... read more »

Who knew that having options could be so profitable?
So one of the skills I've gained over the past two years has really got me excited about the future. It's can seem pretty complicated, but I'll try to demystify things a bit. By the end of this post, you should have a general understanding of why I'm so excited.
I've been investing in stock options. They are very powerful investment tools that require much less capital and can result in huge (>100%) gains. Unfortunately, they can be very risky, and... read more »
Iconoclastic director Spike Lee recently made some statements about the changing, gentrifying face of New York in general and Brooklyn in particular. Whether or not you think gentrification is a good thing is a separate issue. What had me thinking, especially after writing about the changes to Long Island City and Astoria yesterday, was how this issue relates to Queens. I've lived in both East Elmhurst and now Jamaica; I remember how Queens used to look and I'm familiar with how it looks now, and while I... read more »

Lost Cheesecake Recipe Found!
The other day, I was going thru my recipe files and I came upon a recipe for a Cheesecake. Now, knowing my history, I have a very strong weakness for cheesecakes. How I overlooked this recipe is beyond me, but I was even more surprised to find a photo of the cheesecake as well. But what bothers me, is that I don't even remember making it. Guess the old age is creeping up on me.
Lemon Basil Cheesecake
1/3 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 1/4 c. graham cracker ... read more »

And no, I'm not excited. It's party hats outside, in my case tho, it's a Barbi party. I may be short on boobage, but my nipples could fill a D cup.In preparation for breast feeding, doctors advise unsuspecting, naive, well intended, innocent, first time-moms to use a rough wash cloth to toughen em up. Every day I vigorously scrubbed with sand paper. When the blessed day and first latch on arrived, I immediately understood, 'rough washrag,' is doctor-ese for vice grips with razors. I thought my baby was a... read more »
