Here and There with Twin Cities Men

"I am grateful for the community of men at the TCMC supporting each other to be our best." - Bob Schauerhamer, 2024-04-01.

"With my wide experiences in not only visiting folks in assisted living and nursing home facilities but also living in two different facilities, and being the Assistant Office Manager in a third, leads me to the conclusion that they are all very similar. And if you recall the 1975 movie "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," then you get a flavor of what the different environments are like..." - Larry Boatman, 2023-11-01.

"Thanks for all the good work you do!" – Jill Ann Marks, MA, LP, 2024-03-15.

Book Review of The Universe Story by cosmologist Brian Swimme and historian Thomas Berry. "The Hazards and Blessings of Being Male: Embracing the Seven Challenges For a Successful Life", Jed Diamond cites two quotes: "The premature death of men is the most important—and neglected—health issue of our time." - Mariann Legato, MD 2017, and "The male has paid a heavy price for his masculine 'privilege' and power. He is out of touch with his emotions and his body. He is playing by the rules of the male game plan and with lemming-like purpose he is destroying himself—emotionally, psychologically and physically." – Herb Goldberg, 1976 in The Hazards of Being Male.
