How did I do it?  Recorded to Karaoke in normal voice and then increased the pitch. This opens up a whole new ballgame my friend! Watch out Chipmunks!

Nuttin’ for Christmas” (also known as Nothing for Christmas) is a novelty Christmas song written by Sid Tepper and Roy C. Bennett. It became a hit during the 1955 Christmas season when the song showed up on Billboard’s pop charts by a total of five different artists. The highest-charting of the five recordings was released by Art Mooney and His Orchestra, with seven-year-old Barry Gordon as lead vocalist; this version peaked at #6 and became a million-seller. Another notable version was performed by Stan Freberg (with Daws Butler appearing as a burglar helped by the kid at the end). Other charting versions were recorded by The Fontane Sisters, Joe…

093For many years I have compiled a CD of interesting renditions of Christmas standards. Each year I do a song and hide it into the twenty or songs on the CD. This is my submission and rendition of a song for this year’s CD with a little help from Audacity. Not a bad message BTW.

From “The Decision:Your prostate biopsy shows cancer. Now what?”   The number one Kindle on Amazon.com for Prostate Cancer

My mother loved to use old adages as aids to imparting advice as life’s learning experiences arose. Although “the pot calling the kettle black,” “it’s going to be too wet to plough,” and “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink,” were commonly called upon, I believe “a little knowledge is a dangerous thing” was her favorite. She reminded me of the saying so many times that as I got older, she only needed to say, “a little knowledge John” with a sarcastic upward inflection in her voice, and I knew what she meant. In no other disease does this saying ring so true as in prostate cancer and…

This will probably be TMI  (too much information) but I think  it will make a point nicely. When I was a urology resident in 1983, my wife was pregnant with our second child Bess. As a medical student, I had done a rotation in Savannah, Ga in obstetrics. I must have delivered about twenty babies and checked hundreds of women at various stages of pregnancy. One of the things you are taught is to determine how close a women is to delivery after the patient’s water breaks. What you do is a mini-pelvic exam to see how  far apart the cervix has spread. No spreading means that the birth is not imminent. If the cervix is 10 centimeters and thin, then birth is very close. You place two finger in the vagina, find the cervix, spread your fingers to the width of the opening then estimate the distance. I had done it…

Masturbation ‘cuts cancer risk’
Men could reduce their risk of developing prostate cancer through regular masturbation, researchers suggest. They say cancer-causing chemicals could build up in the prostate if men do not ejaculate regularly.

And they say sexual intercourse may not have the same protective effect because of the possibility of contracting a sexually transmitted infection, which could increase men’s cancer risk.

Australian researchers questioned over 1,000 men who had developed prostate cancer and 1,250 who had not about their sexual habits.

This is a plausible theory
Dr Chris Hiley, Prostate Cancer Charity
They found those who had ejaculated the most between the ages of 20 and 50 were the least likely to develop the cancer.The protective effect was greatest while the men were in their 20s.

Men who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer later in life.
