final update, multinames

this is the final update on our video for the neurofilm festival
at the american academy of neurology annual meeting

our video didnt win but two well deserving videos did

our video did have the most viewings of any of the other ones
during the contest
we had over 3100+ views

thanks again to those who took the time to vote for our video
and to those who watched the video

recently when my wife she and i had our surprise mutual
birthday party i received several birthday gifts

yesterday while looking through the cards i noticed that mine
didnt really have my real name on them

one was addressed
happy birthday to
dr water

my neighbor who was also my patient when i was in practice
starting calling me dr water after i helped him design and put
in his rainwater collection system
ive been working on him to make that final conversion to a
complete system
right now he uses his rainwater to water his garden and to
provide water to his several horses

another was addressed
dr duct tape

if you look at my index on my blog or if you do a search of my
blog for duct tape you will see several ok a lot of entries for
duct tape

in my practice the biggest use was to use duct tape for wart removal
people would come in with a wart and i would recommend they
apply duct tape to the wart and leave it on for a week
many times the wart would peel off when you removed the duct tape
this especially worked well on the fingers and toes where freezing
would hurt like hell or cause scarring

doc i just paid a $20 copay to have you tell me to use duct tape
many sure were skeptical but many came back pleased
i could just freeze the wart off and make them cry
cause some scaring and charge $60 which the insurance probably
wouldnt pay
results the same

then there was the famous duct tape chair i did at home
that my wife she regrets ever picking up at some sale somewhere
where they sell junk and dragging it home to fix
i fixed it ok
i covered it with duct tape and its my prized possession
told her i wanted to be buried sitting up in that chair
they can just duct tape me in place

so dr duct tape it is

then theres the one
dr duck

so many of my younger patients didnt know my real name
they just thought dr duck was who i was

of course
i talked to them in donald duck talk and had donald duck
pictures for them to color and
had duck stuff everywhere
what else would they think right

so when i die
i would like for my obit to say

dr water dr duct tape dr duck
you did good
