For info on the Dr Phil Show, please see the more recent March 30 post. I didn't erase this spot because people had posted attachments to it which would have disappeared had I eliminated the post all together.

A thank you to all who have been posting responses and ideas in the forum this month! As I catch back up with the blog and forum (I've been on vacation, feeling guilty about not attending to all of you...but immersed enough in what I was doing that I didn't really have time to respond to the forum questions thoughtfully). I've been impressed with the tone, as well as the content. of what people have written. (One person even posted EXACTLY what I would have posted as a response on memory - an article from a Hallowell newsletter. Wow!) >>> Read more >>>
