Dr. Eric Berne (1910-1970), a Canadian-born psychiatrist, developed Transactional Analysis. This is a powerful tool that can be used to help an individual develop awareness and understanding behind motives and how he or she interacts with other people.

We can all relate to getting calls at home during those special times of the day. It’s hard to enjoy a dinner with the family when you are getting interrupted every five minutes to ask once again “Please take us off your call list”. My mother did it for years. I guess some of these calls fell on the phones of government officials, because in 2003 the Do Not Call Registry was created.
The aim of the registry was to give citizens a limited, but universal opt-out. The list does not stop all calls from happening. It will however, act as a first line of defense against unwanted calls. Some... Read More
I have tried very hard to avoid this topic. But today I'm quite heated and therefore cannot control my urge to vent. First and foremost, I am NOT a religious person. I believe in a higher power, most of you have a name for this higher power. For simplicity's sake, lets call this higher power God. I have tried over the years to find decent people who are involved with some religion and have failed....MISERABLY. Therefore, I have nothing positive to say about the topic. Except it means well, but fails miserable at its intentions. Hence the statement, "Religion is flawed because man is flawed."... Read More

Ladies, lets face it, we too check out... Read More

To do lists are everywhere. Everyone seems to have one. There are new to do list applications launched daily on iTunes and for other digital devices. Some people carry a to do list creator with them wherever they go. These range from back of the napkin to fancy gadgets designed to get you organized with a to do list. The major problem with a to do list is that it is self perpetuating. A to do list never ends. The ultimate outcome of keeping to do lists is they exhaust us and drain the passion and purpose from our lives. So you ask, what the heck am I supposed "to do" if I don't have the security...

As a clown Dr. Patch Adams has been at 10,000 death-beds and has witnessed the power of love and compassion. In a quote he says, "if you have 7 days to live, I am your man." What a beautiful attitude and it couldn't be more true. We should all be so fortunate to have a Patch by our side. Well we are.
The written word cannot do Patch the justice that he deserves. Cher Duncombe had the privilege of interviewing Patch so that we can connect more with him and what compassion and love are truly about.
Don't take my word for it. Listen to the audio of this amazing interview and... Read More
