Turtles On The Runway

Hello everyone! So, I've been commenting on other people's blogs, but finally decided to start my own. I'm watching David Letterman right now while I'm trying to think of a name for this blog. He was talking about a 90 minute plane delay at JFK airport today due to turtles on the runway. Sounded cool. So there it is.

I suppose I'll write about medicine, teaching medical students, baseball, and movies. I follow some nurses and docs, both on Blogspot and on Twitter. I also follow a number of Peace Corps blogs because I used to be a PCV (Peace Corps Volunteer) in Ghana. (That's a country in West Africa where Barack Obama went to visit recently. That is NOT the country in South America where Jim Jones killed all those people with Kool-Aid.)

I'm looking forward to comments. I'm new at this. Can't possibly be as cool or funny as Dr. Grumpy, but we'll see where it goes.


  1. Really nice name for the blog :D
    When I have a kid, I'm asking you for suggestions!

  2. I eventually looked up that story about the turtles that shut down a runway at JFK airport. Turns out they are "Diamondback Terrapins." How 'bout that?!

  3. I'm flattered that you mentioned me in your initial post. Wow!

    For obscure reasons my blog was originally going to be called "Singing Foo"
