Urgh - got home yesterday morning after 4 busy, hectic, frustrating nights at work. Stayed awake until sometime after 1400 (2P). Had my alarms set for 2100 (9P on the cellphone) and 2200 (10P on my watch). Cracked an eye and turned both of them ... Read more

Once again, hectic at work. This is partially caused by the recent renovations. After 6 months, the "improved" intake area for the Emergency Department is semi-completed. We're knocking off the rough edges and trying to make it work. My theory i... Read more

Dogs and Carrots
Monday, July 11, 2011      6 comments

I pulled some old carrots out of the fridge last week and tossed them into the garden to decompose. When I say "old' - I mean they were growing roots and tops. I also tossed some baby carrots that were dated march. Little did I know, the dogs wo... Read more
I Love a Rainy Night
Sunday, July 10, 2011      7 comments

Whee, it rained yesterday! I slept thru it - got up after 2200 (10P) to let the dogs out and for me to get ready for work. I was stomping on the cockroaches that gather in my front garden strip when I noticed the damp dirt was clinging to my sho... Read more
Oh, the Horrors

The Ballad of Gilligan's Island
Wednesday, July 06, 2011      7 comments

Ah, I wish I were on a tropical island, especially if the Professer was there to help McGyver up everything I needed! Gilligan's Island aired from 1964-1967. Funny how so many people showed up on the "deserted" island, but the Minnow tourists an... Read more

OK, I confess that I only know the first verse - I'd have to have the words written out to sing any more! Text: Samuel F. Smith, 1808-1895 Music: Thesaurus Musicus My country,' tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sin... Read more
