    good morning!

    spacenurse! thank you so much for starting this gm thread! i wish that your shift goes by peaceably. i saw the california nurses association advertisement for proposition 98 (right?) on youtube!

    here’s you’re song for the day! [yes i know spacenurse has set us along --- isn’t it nice? we have more songs and more music to listen and enjoy! :d) thank you spacenurse! :hatparty:


    to me and millions around the world however - the song i highlighted today means a whole lot more than what we on average assume!

    so here are the lyrics to the "song of the day" ::

    [font=goudy old style, helvetica] not the torturer will scare me...
    nor the body's final fall.
    nor the barrels of death's rifles...
    nor the shadows on the wall.

    nor the night when to the ground
    the last dim star of pain, is hurled!


    but the blind indifference
    of a merciless, ... unfeeling world!


    lying in the burnt out shell
    of some albanian farm
    an old babushka
    holds a crying baby in her arms


    a soldier from the other side
    a man of heart and pride
    breaks ranks, lays down his rifle
    and kneels by her side


    he gives her water,
    binds her wounds.
    and calms the crying child.

    her touhc gives him absolution then
    across the great divide!
    he picks his way back through the broken
    china of her life.

    and there at the kerb,
    the samaritan serb, turns..
    ... and waves.. goodbye


    and each small candle
    lights a corner of the dark...

    each small candle
    lights a corner of the dark...


    each small candle
    lights a corner of the dark...


    when the wheel of pain stops turning
    and the branding iron stops burning!
    when the children can be children
    when the desperados weaken!
    when the sea rolls into greet them!
    when the natural law of science
    greets the humble and the mighty!
    and the billion candles burning
    lights the dark side of every human mind!!

    each small candle
    lights a corner of the dark...

    roger waters (of "pink floyd" fame) is - in my humble opinion - one of the most gifted, talnted, exceptional and articulate artists ever! i’m off to talk to a lawyer today about work paperwork. tomorrow i’m supposed to deal with some kind of med. screening test.

    geesh! i’m more than “ticked off”. my <expletive deleted> school of nursing <unprintable> and their <censored> admin keep “slowing me down” for little to no reason. if this bs continues – i’m going to take a leave of absence for a week to sort this madness about.

    i’m still woozy and tired from all the running around i’ve been doing the past week and half. i apologize to the wonderful folk who’ve been pm’ing me asking if i were dead! :chuckle

    cheers,

    Hi Spacenurse, I'll check those out, thanks! I hope you have a great day.

    Mornin' Roy, what's up with the school? What are they holding up? How's your new job going?

    I've been enjoying my nice, long stretch of days off. Went up to the mountains over the weekend, it was really nice ..... I caught a bunch of fish Really cold up there, getting ready for snow. Nice to be back here with the awesome weather we're having ..... sunny and 70!

    Been getting a lot of stuff done on my days off too. Cleaned out the bathroom and shower earlier tonight and the stuff I was using to get the soap scum outta the shower actually made me sick, ick. It made me so nauseous and lightheaded I had to stop. So that was weird. Gonna get more cleaning and stuff done tomorrow .... gotta knock some things off my to-do list so I won't feel so bad when I go back to work, lol.

    I hope you're all having a great night and have a great day tomorrow!

    Morning all - very poignant song Roy! Unfortunately I got rather distracted by the clip about George Bush drinking again - it was hilarious! Sorry you're still having trouble getting all your paperwork organised.

    Thanks for your contributions too Spacenurse!

    Hey Raindreamer - sounds like too much work to me - I use an everyday shower spray (similar to your Tylex -? Spelling) that stops the scum forming in the first place, a quick clean every week (courtesy of my cleaner) keeps it all under control!

    To all above & all yet to post have a great day, I'm working a late today - 13.30 - 21.15 so won't be able to check back until much later on. xxxxx

    I used to use that Tylex stuff all the time but quit buying it for some reason ..... probably back in my poor, college days. But I put that on my list tonight after it taking me so long to get all that soap scum off. So hopefully that'll keep me from having to do that again!

    Hope you have a great day!

    Nothing like a horrible job to make you promise yourself that it won't happen again if you can help it!:chuckle

    Morning everybody. I have a cold. Sore throat and runny nose.

    Today I'm going to the library and taking out books on NICU nursing. I've made the decision to drop the course I am taking (because I don't intend to stay in geriatrics any longer). So liberating. So even if NICU's not to be I'm going to try something else. I'm brave and I can take on acute care.

    I get in these cleaning frenzees once in a while (ACK! like my mother), so lately I realized the tilex stuff isn't working on mildew in the shower (either that or Marc's not been using it). So I diluted some bleach in a spray bottle and bingo NO more black stuff. Yay!

    Good morning everyone!
    Working 3-11 today so no afternoon nap for me!
    That Tylex stuff used to make me so sick. It's just expensive bleach mixed with some other cleanser anyway so you can probably save yourself some $$ by just mixing bleach with H20 and spray away.

    Coffee!!!!!

    The daily shower cleaners don't contain bleach.

    Mildew, though, does need bleach!!

    BTW my Wednesday just got a whole lot happier because I just got an email from CGFNS to confirm my mailing details & when I went on the site they have mailed my VisaScreen certificate!! Yippeee - one step closer!

    Of course it did occur to me that it was just as well my details were correct because they had already mailed it prior to actually allowing me to verify the details!! Still, who cares - they have been incredibly efficient - which is not usually something they are renowned for!! Now all that stands in my way is the immigration paperwork...........oh dear my momentary period of elation is over!!!

    adrienurse - hope you feel better! I'm a bit biased, but NICU is the best ..... I say go for it, I hope it works out and you find something you like!

    Suzy - you work 3-11 and you're up this early?! I don't know how you do it, I'd be so tired by the end of the night if I woke up at this hour! Heck, I haven't even been to bed yet, lol.

    RGN - congrats, that's great news!!

    No mildew in my shower, it was just that soap scum stuff that is so hard to scrub off. Just gotta use that Tilex stuff again or just wipe the shower down every once in a while I guess. I've been in a huge cleaning mood the last couple of days ..... might as well take advantage of it.

    Heading off to bed here in a few ..... gotta get some zzzzzzzzzzzs

    Hello all
    I am hanging out with my mom today, we are going to the American Quarter Horse Congress. It is like a festival or fair, for quarter horses. It will be fun.

    Roy, Roger Waters is a pothead who found inspiration in drugs. That song is so depressing.

    Good morning!
