    Cedar Sinai Hospital Nurses

    Just wanted to send you all a BIG THANKS and a BIG HUG from a patient's daughter and fellow nurse. My Father was in the Cedar Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California last month to have Deap Brain Stimulation implanted for his Parkinson's. They were in and out of the hospital 4 different times and due to some complications (didn't wake up from general as soon as expected and then fever) they had to be there at least a week and a half longer than planned. My mom keeps going on and on about what wonderful care he recieved while he was there. I am glad that even though I couldn't be there while he was having this done (we live in Texas), some of God's best Angels were there for my parents. I just wanted to say thank you for the care you give each and every day. :kiss

    I am now at 99,850 miles with my truck. Should hit the 100,000 mile mark within the next two days.
  4. I am almost done listening to this book on CD and have loved it so far. I LOVE Nora Roberts books, but have never read any of her J.D. Robb books before. I wasn't sure I would like them but now I am ready to go out and find all of them. I would prefer them on audio though as I don't find much time for regular reading and have a 2 1/2 hr round trip commute for work each day and listening to the audio books helps pass the time as well as keep me awake. Anyone else read this book yet?

    Food Conditioning

    Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true? A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it. Don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer. That's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap. Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables? A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable slop. Q: Is beer or wine bad for me? A: Look, it goes to the earlier point about fruits and vegetables. As we all know, scientists divide everything in the world into three categories: animal, mineral, and vegetable. We all know that beer and wine are not animal, and they are not on the periodic table of elements, so that only leaves one thing, right? My advice: Have a burger and a beer and enjoy your liquid vegetables. Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio? A: Well, if you have a body, and you have body fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc. Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program? A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good. Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you? A: You're not listening. Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you? Q: What's the secret to healthy eating? A: Thicker gravy. Q: Is chocolate bad for me? A: Are you crazy? HELLO...Cocoa beans...another vegetable!!! "It's the best feel good food around!" Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets. Have a cookie...flour is a veggie!
