July Thoughts

Wednesday, July 17th, 2019

By Paul Hogan I want to share my thoughts of self-survival and how I intend to make July a no-stress, no-threat to  my sanity time. My reality testing is that I choose not to compare myself to the well-dressed actors on TV commercials. These actors with their Hollywood good looks and Hollywood smiles; in their […]

Back to School and Summer Thoughts

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2019

By Paul Hogan How can that be? Only 1 month and its back to school?  I write this in July – school starts in about 4 weeks! My gosh I just pulled the summer table umbrella out of the garage –  okay, don’t judge me, I’m busy – I procrastinate. Back to school – I […]

Addict, Junkie and OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder)

Wednesday, June 19th, 2019

By Paul Hogan I have been these things for years and years and now, I want to share my not so dark and not so secret with you, my friends. At some point early in my teen years I read Dale Carnegie’s book, How To Win Friends & Influence People. After that, I don’t know […]

Get the Attention, Respect and Care You Deserve When You Treat with Dr. Aly Gadalla, MD           By Paul D. Hogan Dr. Aly Gadalla, MD is one of my special preferred medical providers that I refer friends, family and injured MVA (motor vehicle accident) clients to and this is why: “Our physicians are trained to accurately […]

Meet the Team: Lauryn Schooler

Tuesday, May 21st, 2019

By Paul Hogan Lauryn is my great-niece, great in that she is my nephew’s daughter and is a great young woman. I think the designation should be “grand-niece,” and I’m informed by higher authorities (my wife, Cheri, and daughter, Katie – whom many of you know from the office) that I know nothing about relative […]

There is Hope

Wednesday, May 8th, 2019

By Paul Hogan My last blog entry focused on childhood trauma and its aftereffects causing lifelong harm if not dealt with and if it remains untreated. Did you take the ACE test? If so what was your score?  I ask this as an open question, not for you to call and give me your numerical […]

What’s Your ACE Score?

Wednesday, April 24th, 2019

From: There are 10 types of childhood trauma measured in the ACE Study. Five are personal — physical abuse, verbal abuse, sexual abuse, physical neglect, and emotional neglect. Five are related to other family members: a parent who’s an alcoholic, a mother who’s a victim of domestic violence, a family member in jail, a […]

Prayers, Hope, Change

Tuesday, April 9th, 2019

By Paul Hogan Spring has now come and gone. My prayers go out to all the families missing their loved ones due to gun violence.  Columbine High School; Sandy Hook Elementary School; Las Vegas, Nevada; Parkland High School in Florida to name a few. These massacres are horrific as are the 95-gun violence deaths daily […]

All You Need Is Love

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019

By Paul Hogan On February 14 every year we celebrate a day dedicated to love – Valentine’s Day. Of course, we all recognize the concept that if you want to be loved, first you must give love. You know, the pay it forward concept. My older sister Margie passed away in January of 2018. I’m […]

It’s a Miracle

Thursday, March 28th, 2019

By Paul Hogan I walked into the extended stay motel, it’s early December, it’s cold and it’s dark. There are a lot of service/industrial type trucks of all sizes in the parking lot with mainly men in work clothes coming in and out at the end of a workday. I enter a standard sized, motel […]
