Last Mexico Tourist Standing
Remember, even discussing Stress, we need to laugh a lot. A lot.

Dateline: Second night in the Las Vegas PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Rock Bar across from Planet Hollywood. Go to Bizarre Things Seen in Vegas, Get a Grip, Pt. 5 for the particulars on this den of Vegas revelry. For now, on this second night, let’s just say, the Judy Dench Vegas woman, me, perched at the bar slugging back coffee and pinging keys on my laptop—is slightly out-of-sync with the crowd. The line for the More >
Dateline: Racebook at the Paris in Las Vegas. If you ever have a big project to do that requires hours of concentration and organization, I’d recommend this place. Picture a huge room with forty flat televisions. Across the front is a double layer of theater size babies. Every screen shows a different live sporting event. During the day these are mostly horse races. Now, here’s the good part (not that watching twelve horse races at once isn’t terrific fun, cause it is), the seating is made up of long rows of private carols each with its own screen which you can More >
Remember, even discussing Stress, we need to laugh a lot. A lot. And some more.
Psychologist on the Loose.
Dateline: Las Vegas PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Rock Bar across from Planet Hollywood. Midnight on some night. There are hundreds of screaming people in here and Vegas is new and mind-blowing to these enthusiastic visitors. They jump up and scream, “Vegas!” every few minutes, just in case someone doesn’t remember where they are.
There’s a silver mirrored life size bull bucking at the entrance. In the middle of the Superdome room there’s More >
Dateline: American Airlines Flight 2251, DFW to Los Cabos (SJD). This is the flight once taken by the Rudest Woman Ever in the Air.
Notice: The next set up entries will be a genuine search for ways to save the stomach lining`. Tests came back . . . well, not so good. I can’t believe I’m the only one who needs a wake up call. Thus, some serious unstressing is ahead. But first, one more just for fun.
Set-up: Compliment time. After all the unplanned travel adventures, including the six hours on the plane in Houston Bush International on a trip from More >
Dateline: Cabo San Lucas Hilton International Branch Headquarters. Best value for obsessively collected Hilton points. Note: the real resort people wear something called “resort wear.” I took that to mean cargo shorts and flip-flops, so half right.
Set-up: Each of us has a basic self that rests deep inside. Our ethics, values, and beliefs. This is the part of us that we’ve formed based on “best thinking.” Makes us humans sound pretty great, right? Well, hang on. Each of us also has a pseudo self, that is the part of us that is formed by “emotional pressure from within ourselves, or More >
Dateline: Los Cabos Hilton International Branch Headquarters. There was a guy checking in at the same time I was who had on a Super Bowl ring. I didn’t ask, but I did mention it to my spouse. Big mistake. For the last three days, he has pelted me for a more complete description. One more, “I know you said he didn’t have a beard, but if he had had a beard, do you think it would have been . . . would you say he was as tall or taller than that guy More >
The Woman Who Couldn’t Stop Giving Her Opinion. Stress.
In order to appreciate this difficult lady, please read The Woman Who Couldn’t Stop Giving Her Opinion, Pt. 1
Anxiety is: The response the body to danger or perceived danger. Two things to notice: 1) this response is not “in the mind” but in the brain and the body, and includes a cascade of chemical changes. 2) the danger can be “real” (lion in the room), but most of the anxiety we experience is a reaction to “perceived” or “what if” threats.
