Alas, Grand Rounds; I Know Them Well

Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt Grand Rounds.

I hope Will shall pardon my paraphrase of Hamlet’s words in Act II, scene ii.

Hamlet totally rocks, as does Teresa at Rural Doctoring for the Shakespeare theme of this week’s Grand Rounds!

And just for the record, Lawrence Olivier gives the best performance of Hamlet I’ve ever seen ( with all due respect to Kenneth Branagh), although the critics of Olivier’s time disagree with me.

I wonder what Zippy thinks?

********************

Rima from The Doctor Blogger has submitted a proposal called The 3G Project to the American Express Members Project. The projects that get the most votes will be funded. Rima does not receive the money, but the institution administering the project does.

In fact, here is a bit about what the project hopes to accomplish:

Teach health ed to pre-school age kids living in disadvantaged homes while parents and/or grandparents are present to also learn in a non-threatening setting. Kids hear the information early and all generations can work together to make healthy choices. Use a digital web based approach to “Teach the Teacher” what to say and how to say it.

Right now, Rima is around #27 and needs to make the top 25.

She can do it if we go to the site and nominate the project. I have put in my nomination. It costs nothing and takes a few keystrokes to accomplish. You do not have to have an AmEx card to vote.

Preliminary votes must be in by September 1st.

Good luck to Rima and The 3G Project! Be sure to keep us posted!
