My mother-in-law is one of the finalists in this contest. Please vote for her "California Dreaming" dog. If you're a Yankee's fan, just think of all the Red Sox fans you're going to make eat a dog with hummus and guacamole.
Here's my vote for the @KayemFranks #NextFenwayFrank contest. Now it's your turn to vote!

Last push for fundraising. The Adult Congenital Heart Association's Heart Walk in Boston is this Saturday. I'm trying to raise a total of $500. I have $380 now and another $50 pledged. The minimum donation through the web site is $5. If I can get just 16 people to donate $5, I'll make my goal.

Thanks for your support.

I'm writing this on a 7-inch tablet with a bluetooth keyboard. I've incorporated my phone as an integral part of my teaching so I can post recordings of lectures online and keep in touch with students by SMS. My television is smart. Our dogs even wear electronic collars.

Now I have a new device. I'm just home from having a defibrillator implanted. I was born with Ebstein's Anomaly of the tricuspid valve. It was repaired about 20 years ago. Following that surgery, some scar tissue was found on the medioinferior ventricular wall that can mimic the damage following an infarct.

Probably more than any other of my devices, I have put a lot of time into researching this one. An electrophysiology study last January has led me to this point. Followed by a second EP study, a second opinion, a third opinion, and waiting for new hardware to be available. It may have been the longest road to really look into what I need and what is best with me, but my wife and I feel very comfortable with having reached this point.

Now, I just have be sure that some of my other devices don't get too close to this new one. The one thing that might not work out is my backpack leaf blower. I think I might be getting a new device for my next birthday. Come on riding lawn mower with leaf vacuum attachment.

Just came from my nephew's #Lego   6th birthday party. Ninjago themed cakes, and favors for the guests were Series 13 minifigure bags. Everyone was hoping for the  #hotdogman  but, alas, no one got that. Being the only adult granted party favor status, I got the alien, who I immediately dubbed "Squidhead."

A mama bear and cubs visited our backyard this morning. We didn't really have any come through last year, so this is a bit of a surprise. Thankfully, our dogs had just come in and hadn't picked up their scent.

I have a congenital heart defect, basically I did not have the valve between the two chambers on the right side of my heart. It was repaired when I was in my 20's. Now I'm in my 40's, surviving this condition like a boss. It is thanks to the work done in adult congenital heart disease that I have been this fortunate. This year I had a defibrillator implanted, signaling a new phase to dealing with this condition

I would appreciate any donation people would care to make to this cause. The walk is next weekend, so if you would like to donate now, that would be great.
