There is a new government requirement to do mental health screening on adolescents with Medical. It's called the PHQ-2. As you might guess it is unrealistic and not very helpful. The thing is, if you ask an adolescent girl if they "have experienced depressed mood, hopelessness, lack of interest or sleep problems" 90% will answer yes. Now, they aren't all really depressed, of course, but a very high percentage of teenagers have trouble going to sleep because they spent the whole damn summer going to sleep at 3 AM and waking up at 1 PM.

Give me a 4 month old any day. They almost never complain.

Every teenage boy that is trying out for wrestling expects to compete 20 lbs below his weight...


FAM: I think the 112 weight class might be unrealistic for you.

Teen: That's what I wrested at last year.

FAM: Well, perhaps but you are 4 inches taller.

By the way....you parents of teens....the Brazilian-style shave jobs are getting younger and younger. We are talking 7th grade. Now, this may be "just in case" but I'm not so sure.

Read "The sleep thieves". The researcher does a very good job showing that teen need to go to bed late and and sleep. Also ADD symptoms have a lot in common with poor sleep patterns.

Mental health screening for adolescents - As a former crisis counselor for children (9 years worth), a few follow up questions to ask. Have you broken up with a boyfriend/girlfriend in the last two months? Have your parents (or guardians as many are being raised by grandparents) taken away your cell phone in the last month as consequence for negative behaviors? These two areas are the biggest triggers for kiddos to become SI/HI and are more 'situational depression' rather than clinical depression.

Certainly true. They really can't help themselves.

I have a sociobiological explanation for this.

************************50,000 BC, Lescaux, 01:00**********************


<the chief, Onkh, (30 year old) has long since gone to sleep because he is biologically programmed to wake up at 06:30...Onkh Sr, at the improbable age of 55, used to wake up at 04:45 but he was taken by a sabretooth while emptying his prostate-obstructed bladder.....a blood-curdling rumble is heard in the bushes....>

Beavis: What's that?

Onkh Jr: It's a f****** cave bear. Wake up Onkh.

Neavis: You do it.

Onkh Jr: No, you.

Beavis: He's your dad, dude........

Glad you have power again. My cousin was only out for a day but her daughter ended up with a tree limb through the living room couch.

Don't think I technically won. There was the transient satisfaction of annoying the crap out Obergruppenfurher Borman but they seem to made their mark on my arm...so to speak.

Good Morning Mr Mandrake,



It means the violation of landscape maintenance for your property will remain open until the approved front yard landscape plans you submitted and have received approval for, are completely installed so the architectural committee can see the overall look upon completion and so management can then determine if any other trees and other plant material may need further evaluation for trimming, clean up, removal, etc. Thank you for your understanding that continued maintenance at each individual homeowner’s property is a necessary requirement as outlined in the CC&R’s and not something that can be performed sporadically or years apart, it must continue regularly.



Kindest Regards,



Frau Braun

I was able to get even with the Waste Management guy. I found it an extra can is only $5.40 every 3 months...that's about 40 cents a week. So I ordered 5 extra cans and labeled them "Uno, dos, tres.......seis"

Pathetically childish but he started it.

You're in a battle of wits with WMG . . . acting childish makes it somewhat even.

For a mere $5 every three months (per can), I will not contact your HOA and, pretending to be a distraught neighbor, complain about the number of cans in front of your house.

That is no threat as long as I put them away on Tuesday. I have got letters for that too.


Went to the Tom Petty concert at the Hollywood Bowl last night. Quite a blast although the hemorrhaging of money does not stop when you buy the tickets. Bottle of $8 wine is $42. Parking $25. Apparently the thing to do at a Tom Petty concert is to vape some bud to try to keep up with the headliner who has a head start on you. Fantastic show. Great venue with a fantastic sound system. About 6 or 7 total audience sing-alongs which also sound fantastic due the design of the venue. I think everyone practiced in their car on the way in.

Lucinda Williams was the warm-up act. She is pretty good with a bunch of songs about Texas and people killing themselves with a 44
and that kind of thing. She sang a song which was a thinly veiled song about Trump and, of course, which blamed Hurricane Maria on
me for driving an SUV once. Petty had a cool new song about homeless people and implying the need for wealth distribution which I
found ironic given the price of the tickets and the $42 bottle of $8 wine. Seems to me we were already doing that.

The bench style seating in the upper half of The Bowl encourages row-crashers who move down the venue and wedge themselves in by sheer bravado. Stalker Girl shut down one row-wedger. I was quite impressed. He looked genuinely afraid.

Patent nonsense. Because you drove an SUV once, you've spawned Hurricane Harvey. She oughta know better.

For a mere $6 every three months (per can), I will not contact your HOA and, pretending to be a distraught neighbor, complain that you have left your cans out AGAIN on a Wednesday.
