Throw Angles

Editor’s note: We have recently barred any publication of Lao Du’s usual flapdoodle and screwy hooey during the pandemic as a public service to PPP. However, he has strenuously insisted that he has to at least air one of his bellyaching beefs before the corona virus...

Stressful Times (without Ping Pong Parkinson)

      I got this woodpecker who started to drill holes in my house.   A lot of them – and he won’t stop.  I tried to drive this  drilling drum machine  off to the neighbors by saying shoo, go next door, but that didn’t work.  So then I started to bang my walls...

What Happens When There’s No Ping Pong Parkinson

I’m so lonely with the self-isolation and self-quarantine stuff, that it’s gotten to the point where I now welcome all robocalls.  Even though I fully realize that these calls are computer generated and most of them are recorded, I’m still so grateful and heartened by...

I Feel Good (a ping pong blog)

Now that the Club has closed down for the  Corona virus,  I feel a great wave of relief.  It’s not just that I don’t have to ask the guy across the table if he’s been to Wuhan or Milan … or New Rochelle, and not because I no longer have to worry about whether the guy...

The Cataclysmic Pandemic

So far, the biggest sacrifice from the self-quarantine has been toilet paper – I don’t have any.  I called the police about the apparent universal shortage, but they insisted it wasn’t what a 911-type call should be.  I begged to differ.  I begged strenuously. Where...

Focus On Bogus: Part V (last)

We’ve broached the subject of unreliable source information for medically-related issues, but we have yet to discuss the means by which we can determine that a particular substance or instrument has been assessed with the application of stringent guidelines and, thus,...

A Note from Fogeyville: Lao Du

The idea of hybrid vigor has entered the world of Ping Pong Parkinson.  In our case, it’s combining the wisdom, which comes as a result of experience from older people, and the techno skills of young people.  Both subgroups should advance when teamed up.  That’s why...

Focus On Bogus – part IV

     So, I walk under a ladder leaning against my house, and 5 minutes later I hammer my thumb instead of a nail.  You think those two things are connected?  Some people do.  Of course, you know (if your head is attached to your neck) that it’s superstition –...

Focus on Bogus, Part III

     I’ve got a diet for you. Oh, have I got a diet for you.  It’s fantastic!  Eat whatever you want, and I still guarantee that your waistline will shrink dramatically by 5 inches as you lose 10 to 20 pounds the first week.  By week two, you’ll be as slender as Grace...

Focus on Bogus: Part II

     No one wishes to dampen the enthusiasm that arises with hoped-for breakthroughs in Parkinson’s Disease or any other disorders but, however tantalizing some of these reports may be, if they are false or unsubstantiated by scientific evidence...
