What is Dr. Lanny Up To?

What am I up to?

“Not always this laid back”
“Not always this laid back”

Thank you for asking. I am asked this question so often. This phase may just be a salutation, but I have learned many have a curiosity about my various endeavors. A blog seemed like the best way to answer this question on a regular basis. In addition, this blog provides a means for me to keep track in an organized fashion of what I am up to.

The purpose is to record and relate what I am up to these days. The information will be in one place for recording memoirs and historical events. It will be a place to document the present and consider the future.
I expect to regularly make entries concerning various categories: physician/surgeon; medical research and development; the golf adventures and Life. You may see a recent post or follow the topic that might interest you.

Let me know what you think as this blog will becomes my “Lectronic Legacy” in what ever time remains.

Answering the frequently asked question (FAQ) of what am I up to now?

A BLOG seemed the best and most efficient means of answering the FAQs on a regular basis.  It might be said that I wear multiple hats or have many interests.  Discovery in medicine will always be the main topic.  However there are other categories; Golf Adventures, Inventions, and some Christian writings.  Hopefully the BLOG will be a format to tell what I am up to in each of these main endeavors.  It seems almost daily there are interesting events; at least to me. Perhaps the events may be of interest to others.

I want to make it clear, I am not retired.  Retirement it is bad for one’s health.  I concluded my clinical practice in 1995, but work regularly in these various endeavors.  I do not see anywhere in the Bible where retirement is to be desired or realized.  I have told my daughters that I will not be speaking at my retirement party.

From time to time I will answer publicly herein those questions that recently surfaced and may be of general interest.  I will not be recording what I had on my hot dog at a ball game, let alone focus on mundane events.

I trust I will accomplish the intended goal of answering “What am I up to?”

Amazing Data Analysis

Mother Earth or Father God?

4/29/2020: I saw today that Michael Moore invoked the name of mother earth as controlling or affecting events in this world. If one is to accept mother earth, would it not be logical to at least grant a similar position of authority to Father God?

Pence Misses the Mark

4/29/2020: VP Pence by not wearing a mask at Mayo Clinic visit today was not an error in health care, it was an error in his Christian doctrine. He refused to submit to authority of the Mayo Clinic at which he should have submitted as guest at their house. If they were visiting him then he has the liberty to do as he pleases, but not there. Jesus equates submission to authority with the maximal level of faith in the story of the Roman centurion. (Matthew 8:5-13) Even this gentile Roman by equating authority with faith was declared to have more faith than the existing religious community of the day.

Data Driven?

4/23/2020: “Everything is data driven.” However we have no data on the future. What we have from health care modeling has not been very accurate. So much for data! 🙂

Time well spent

4/23/2020: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaD43R-g3dk. This video goes slow and deliberate. It takes time and patience to sit through the hour or more it lasts. However, I have not heard so much contemporary relevant truth in one place. It was spoken prophetically in 1992 and again to me today.

I know Derek Prince’s teaching. I had and still have every audio tape (yes tape) he made back in the day (sixties). His teaching changed me then and now.

Please take the time.

Borrowing your way out of debt?

4/14/2020: It appears that the prevailing government principle that it is possible to borrow oneself out of debt. Will they be suspending the law of gravity?

Yesterday, today and again tomorrow the government, business and individuals have increasing debt. More debt tomorrow than today and on and on. How does that work?

The government can print the money. They can tax or allow for inflation.
Most likely there will be inflation for business and individuals and increased taxation. Will we need wheelbarrows instead of wallets as in Germany years ago to go shopping?
