UPDATE ---- JAMA PROVIDED FREE ACCESS TO BOMBACK'S ESSAY FOR A LIMITED TIME!! --- THANK YOU JAMA!
Think you don't have time to write? Andrew Bomback is a physician and writer (with toddlers and a wife) but he's still managed to write a novel, a textbook, many academic papers, and first-person essays.
On Sunday, February 15, we'll discuss his two nonfiction essays, "I Know That Elmo is Not a Child Molester" and "Errands" published on Full Grown People and in JAMA, respectively. "Errands" reached an audience of 300,000 readers and received an amazing response.
In both essays, I get a strong sense of Andrew's voice and we'll talk about how he conveys that voice in different genres. If you'd like to get a copy of "Errands," here is the citation info: Bomback A. Errands. JAMA. 2006; 295(7):731-733. doi:10.1001/jama.295.7.731.
Download the essays, read them, and be ready to call in with your questions about writing, life, and the writing life!
ANDREW BOMBACK is a physician and writer. He is the author of You’re Too Wonderful To Die, a novel, and Chronic Kidney Disease and Hypertension Essentials, a textbook.

FIERCE FOXES FEBRUARY ...CONTINUES
ANDREIA SOLOMON BURKE...
Co-wrote for an indie short film titled: The Shift which will be shown in the Wandsworth Festival and well as a few small cinemas about London.
I'm working on a feature film (script) remake of a sports classic with an up and coming young producer from LA.
And most importantly I would like to discuss my new organization called: F.A.D (Families Affected by Deportation) My family life's were shattered when my husband was abruptly taken from us and we're still dealing with the daily effects of it. It's only because God has blessed us tremendously that we haven't suffered as much as most.
What FAD is designed to do is assist families, wives and children on particular to help find the appropriate services to ease the burden of their odeal.
Celina Johnson....I own a residential cleaning service that uses only green products. I have been in business for about a year. I am the only person in my family that owns a business.
I guess it started when I was a child. My mom made me responsible at a young age. I was 10 when she had me cleaning and running errands. As a teenager it just became a habit. My mom is a neat freak and it rubbed off on me. As a adult when I would get stressed or mad I would clean..lol.. I really enjoy cleaning its like a release. Also I got tired of working two jobs ans figured why not make extra cash doing what I like best.
Many people are sensing a gathering darkness overtaking our nation. The political and economic skies are ugly, as are the ubiquitous clouds of societal distress that are spreading across America and all Western countries that seem to indelibly cover us with a nebulous, oily-black spirit of distress. This unsettled feeling is growing among many “conservative” Christians, who see our freedoms being eroded by an increasingly antagonistic agenda of the power elite on both sides of the political spectrum.
We feel “something wicked this way comes,” yet many cannot put their finger on exactly what awaits us. It seems as if we are living in a state of mental confusion, although we have become quite adept at containing our own uneasiness just below the surface of our normal existence.
While we might acknowledge its presence during the quiet times we manage to steal from our otherwise overburdened and hectic lives, we are often quick to dismiss our ominous feelings as artifacts of unsubstantiated paranoia. Too many overstated claims from the internet, perhaps, or wild notions without any basis in fact, we might attempt to reason.
After all, life is generally good as we can still hit the drive-thru at Starbucks for our morning dose of designer coffee to carry us through the day. We can still insert our ATM cards into a bank kiosk and withdraw cash for our needs. As we drive to work, transport our children to school, run errands and busily perform our unremarkable daily tasks, we look around us and see people, just like us, traveling about, working and engaging in the normal activities of life in the twenty-first century.
Join Pastor David Lankford & Steve Quayle tonight as we look at our nation under judgment.

Has I get ready to leave Round Rock Texas, I just share a few thoughts about the adventures I had here. We spent Christmas day with my son and his family. Having a grandson with special needs make life a bit more challenging but still does not lessen my love him.
Christmas is so much more special when children are there.
The day after Christmas My son and I took the Boys over to Austin to Harbor Freight and Fry’s to run some errands. Then I took one of my Grandsons over to Piranha records trying to find some Willie Nelson music for a future show. Normally they carrying everything but today was not one of them. Shopping with my Grandson makes me a proud Grandpa
Saturday Morning my wife went to visit some of our favorite haunts The Book Spot, Half Price Books, because both were having sales and of course we had to go
Saturday afternoon my son and took the boys out one a mini-history trip around Round Rock, First we went out to the White –Lime Mc Neil Post office because Richard had never been there
While we there a train passed by which gave Brandon a big thrill, From there we actually found the Round Rock in Rock Texas, and then onto the Round Rock Memorial Park because they have a WWII torpedo one display to honor all the Submarines lost in that war, of course this leads me to this question “Why a Torpedo in Central Texas honoring lost submarines”? Perhaps a research question for another show
We also got a picture of the Christmas Ornament at the Water Tower
Every time we come out to Texas we always have a new set of adventures highlighted by the time we get to spend Richard, Sara, Brandon and Ryan
I would be Remiss if I did not mention this but Sara made homemade Cinnamon rolls that out do anyone or any chains, or independent bakery they are the simply the best

Women love their accessories and women also spend a considerable amount of time in their cars. Between trips to work, traveling on vacation, personal errands and going back and forth with activities for the kids, women clock a lot of time on the road. This week we'll talk about fun car accessories for women, with our guest, Suzy Wagnitz of CarDecor.com.
We are meeting with Charles Hibble, CEO of the idropped franchise opportunity. iDropped provides fast, on-site mobile device repair for the most popular brands of mobile devices with a specialization in Apple and the Samsung Galaxy series. The main reason that iDropped has been so successful is that consumers don't want to be without a cell phone for long, so they'll gladly drop it off for an hour to get fixed while running other errands.
Today on The Boochcast, Booch in spite of the storm talks about errands he had to run, Going backstage at RAW, collaborating with Tyson Dean, recaps Monday Night RAW with his buddy Elvis, Dominos' CEO Apologizes For Saying That If Lord Voldemort Were Real He Would Give Him Free Domino’s Pizza For Life, and 17 Times Obama Did Things We Absolutely Do Not Agree With.
This Saturday's B.O.S.S.CHICKS RADIO promises to be one that you will not soon forget. It will be CONTROVERSIAL and EXPLOSIVE. Coach Nanci Deed and Dr. Carolyn Hall will join forces with Calden and Alden, famously known as Good Twin, Bad Twin. These men are talk show hosts and political commentators.
On this show, B.O.S.S.CHICK hosts will uncover, debunk, and discuss SEX, RELATIONSHIPS, and MYTHS ABOUT DATING. YOU DONT WANT TO MISS THIS SHOW. We also want you to call in with your opinions and issues.
Remember, YOU CAN LISTEN TO SHOW ANYWHERE YOU ARE. Turn it on in your car, beauty shop, while your running errands, jogging at the park, etc. Just make sure that you're listening...
What is your opinion? Do you really feel that you're ready to do the following for the next 20 years of your life? Wake up at 7am. Leave your house at 8am. Get to work at 9am. Get off of work at 6pm. Run errands until 7pm. Get home at 8pm. Say hello to your kids/spouse, eat dinner until 9pm. Get things prepared for the next day until 10pm. Go to bed at 11pm or 12am. And you do this for 5 or 6 days a week, 50 or 51 weeks a year (depending on how much vacation time you have). Here is the better question, is the money that you make on your paycheck worth this for the next 20 years?
I will be talking about this in different aspects. Not looking for callers, but if I get some I'll be glad to hear what you have to say.
