In the Broadway musical “Fiddler On The Roof,” the milkman Tevya asks his wife Golde: “Do you love me? She hesitates and finally answers: “After 25 years of marriage, I guess I do.” As the sands from my hourglass rapidly continue to run out, I am constantly reminded of my boyhood in Sydney, Cape Breton island, Nova Scotia.

While walking through the lobby of a newly built hotel, I noticed workmen hovering around a very large chandelier they had just dismantled. “Installing a new one?” I asked. “No Sir,” “Just replacing some light bulbs.” Replacing some light bulbs and they had to take down the entire apparatus to perform the operation.

Hello,Anybody home?

It’s interesting to see how the younger generation communicates in this day and age. My generation is able to address each other by a technique we learned when we were knee high to Hector the pup. It’s called talking. With the use of our head and neck muscles, tongue, lips and power from the brain tissue, we form words that allow us to speak any language we choose. We can ask, answer and discuss questions, comfort one another, count, and provide information to our fellow man about any subject at all. I was able to do this by the time I reached the ripe old age of 2 years old. So could all of my playmates and relatives. It’s referred to as communicating.

She Was Your Friend For A Lifetime
Article Date: Apr 24, 2015 Vol 14, No 4
Lawrence I. Gaum, DDS, FADSA, FICD

legendary country and western singer and performer Hank Snow, in one of his popular songs, sang the following lyrics; “ There are friends who will want you, but just for a day,” “There are pals you think true, but they’ll cast you away.” Elaine Sacks was none of the above. She was the real deal, a friend for a lifetime. Her life was not long and we lost her a short time ago. Her passing left all those who knew her shocked, devastated and lost for words. Everyone kept asking the inevitable question as to why, but never receiving an answer. And never will.

Several months ago, like a good and obedient little alter boy, I went religiously to my G.P.s office, bared my left deltoid muscle, and braced myself for the nasty injection. Zip, Bang! Done. Didn’t hurt a bit. So far, so good.

For a considerable amount of time I have been aware of some very disturbing activities with respect to prescription writing by dentists in Ontario. Numerous written orders are being prepared and dispensed by pharmacists for Amoxicillin in the 500mgs. dosages

A Coincidence or A Message?

Lawrence I. Gaum, DDS, FADSA, FICD

Pilot Officer Tommy Marshall, RCAF, my uncle, left us 72 years ago. He died December 27/1942, the result of a fatal plane crash that took his life and the life of his student passenger. Tommy was a pilot instructor stationed at Trenton Air Force Base in Ontario during World War II. His assignment was to teach new pilot recruits the basics of flying and after two weeks of intense training, they were shipped overseas into combat duty. (See Picture #1)

I ’m not fussy about TV at the best of times. I don’t watch it except on occasion when I can be assured of a good documentary or a history review. Most of the so called soap operas or reality shows are atrocious and some of the language engaged in as dialogue, would make individuals who lived in Sodom and Gomorra blush with embarrassment.dr

BS To PSA
Article Date: Oct 16, 2014 Vol 13, No 8
Lawrence I. Gaum, DDS, FADSA, FICD

The other day I dutifully reported to my medical GP’s office for my annual physical examination. After much pushing, prodding, listening and observing every portion of my anatomical frame and beyond, inside and out, he pronounced me safe and sound and in good health. He advised me however, that in order to complete the examination, it was essential for me to be subjected to another trauma. This included several blood tests as well as a PSA test. The PSA test would determine the status of my prostate gland, that small walnut sized organ hidden deep within my anatomical essence.

What We Take for Granted

Lawrence I. Gaum, DDS, FADSA, FICD

Last week, I came down with one of the worst colds I have ever experienced. Knocked me for a loop! Nausea, muscle aches and pains, dizzy spells and as weak as a newborn lamb. I had to cancel and reschedule several appointments with patients and as a result, ever ything was completely discombobulated. A real mess.
