    Good Friday April 19 2018

    Heart felt condolences on your loss, herring. I hope you and your family can find some comfort in that you were able to follow step-mom's wishes. And yes, hospice nurses are fantastic. I feel like providers in our area just don't call them in soon enough. I am so ready to bust out of here. I found a major error on the part of the crazy one. No harm was done, but there was potential. She is off for the next week, but I plan to speak to supervisor next week. The rain has been holding off today, but forecast for sun tomorrow, and temp up to 60! Dh wants to go to a movie, but all I see in the theatres is superhero stuff (no for both of us) and horror (big no for dh) and Dumbo (no for me, the original was too sad). Maybe we'll stay in and watch The West Wing on Netflix. Ooh, feeding the doggos people food would frost my cookies, for sure. I am not sure most commercial chocolate has enough theobromine to hurt them, but there is no point in taking any chances. Or having to clean up dog vomit. amoLucia, I am sorry you had to endure such a negative experience. In our area, the hospital contracts with a company like a Press-Gainey, but I don't think they ask questions about safety. Is there a state level ombudsman? And good for that CNA. The good ones are worth their weight in gold. Perhaps these folks could help? https://www.state.nj.us/health/healthfacilities/file_complaint.shtml You just might save a life. Okay, let the weekend begin, HOO RAH!!!!

    I had a steroid shot in my shoulder once for calcific tendonitis and adhesive capsulitis. Did not help one bit.

    Good Rainy Morning, It does look glum outside, but I keep telling myself it's washing the pollen out of the air. I have been taking an antihistamine, and as I predicted, my eyes are drier and was quite sore this morning. Yesterday was sunny, sneezy and headachy. But I saw a photo of North Carolina the other day that showed a yellow haze from all the pollen. I started my work week yesterday. The crazy one left me a confusing pile to sort through, but not overwhelming. And I started the day with a 1 hour class about epidemiology: sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value and negative predictive value. Being a bit of a recovering math geek, I rather enjoyed it. Tweety, your trip sounded wonderful, and that is good that you didn't have to jump into crazy Thursday while severely jet lagged. Joe, I hope your music goes well and that the congregation appreciates your effort and devotion. I hope your wrist can heal quickly Nel. "itis" is no fun! Time to leave for work, great day all, j22

    Special Council Muller Report

    AG Barr is set to release his redacted version of Mueller report tomorrow. https://apnews.com/c60e0eee48a6495ea48e39a6c3c7377a But only after he holds a press conference with Rod Rosenstein, but no Mueller. Great, release it after the press conference so that the press has no chance to look at first and formulate questions. And I am reading reports that he has already briefed the WH. Nothing fishy there. I know she is not seen as a credible source here, but Rachel Maddow aired a very interesting story last night about how Barr previously issued a Justice Department ruling, but refused to show it to Congress. But he did give them a summary about how he justified sending the FBI to Panama to arrest Noriega back during Bush 41's administration. He even used the same wording, he offered "a summary of principle conclusions. " https://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow/watch/barr-record-of-deception-for-bush-calls-credibility-into-question-1496086595805

    Media behaving badly

    News outlets are picking up this story about a GoFundMe to raise money for the 3 churches burned in Louisiana. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-47961014 So far I see BBC, UPI, and the NY Times. But oddly, no Breitbart, no Fox and no Daily Wire. Although to his credit, Ben Shapiro tweeted that he sent a donation. I also went to the sites for Fox, Breitbart and Daily Wire and got no results using their search functions.

    A fellow came over yesterday to give an estimate on installing a patio in the back. Dh got a small yearly bonus and its just burning a hole in his pocket. However, the estimate is about twice what the bonus was. I think a couple more people are going to bid, but I doubt any bids will be less. I decluttered a bit yesterday and, and poked around in the yard, but it is still pretty muddy; will try yard work again today before the rain starts. And then I got caught up watching Hoarders online. And looking at the reports of the Notre Dame fire. Very sad. And I got a call from HR about my health insurance. Somehow I got signed up for a spending account that doesn't go with my insurance plan. I thought something was funny about the enrollment last fall, but I am pretty sure I followed the instructions. Now that I have been to see an ophthalmologist and a retinal specialist this year, the plan I am switching to will give better coverage. This made me think that a single payer plan could have advantages... Looks like we are going to Sonoma to assist with a JDRF bike ride in August. I will have to forgo our usual trip to Las Vegas, but that's okay. Old coworkers and I are talking about a girls weekend later this fall, and truthfully, they are more fun than dh, in Vegas, anyway. He doesn't gamble, doesn't drink, and doesn't like the heat. Speaking of convos with people who aren't there: dh has this truly annoying habit of speaking as he is walking away. And then he gets annoyed when I can't understand. I will grant you that my hearing may not be tiptop, but its not always my fault when the speaker is moving away and another bit of noise, like a fan. Grrrr. Okay, I better move, cheers, j22

    Media behaving badly

    On Fox and Friends this morning, Ainsley Earhardt stated that Mary Magdalene brought the Crown of Thorns to Paris. https://www.rawstory.com/2019/04/fox-friends-host-claims-notre-dames-crown-thorns-brought-france-mary-magdalene/ The twitter thread on this is hilarious.

    Special Council Muller Report

    I do not think that America is focused on division and negativity. I think most Americans are trying to improve themselves by working within the system. I think the majority recognize climate change as a serious problem, want to be safe in their homes and schools, and want to earn a living wage. I am not understanding what you mean by recognition of "individual thought and freedom". The Bill of Rights protects these.

    The Congressional Thread

    And why is the fellow with the microphone holding a wooden spoon?

    The Congressional Thread

    What exactly is Trump doing to make lives better for people of color? It is not very clear in the video. Yes the unemployment rate is low, but it is low for all Americans, more in some areas that other. But people are still being attacked by police, black churches are being burned, and he wants to take away insurance coverage without a plan to replace it. And he continues to make threats towards Muslims.

    I had forgotten that we were going to a fundraiser dinner/auction last night until ds reminded me of about 2 hours before we were to leave! At least he didn't just pipe up when he was ready to leave, as he is wont to do at times. Anyway, monies were raised for summer activities for kids and young adults with autism, so it was all a good cause. The theme was Disco, and there were some amusing costumes. The background music was the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever, and I joked with dh that we were probably 2 of the 4 people in the room that saw it in a theatre. I am waiting for the telephone/cable guy to get here. Our land line has been out for about 2 weeks and I finally got around to calling it in. Also, one of the TV's signal is wonky, so the service person is going to look at that too. There is a pause in the rain today, so maybe some grass will get cut. Good day to all, j22

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    How does one do that, pray tell? By reporting actual charitable donations made, and demonstrating they paid taxes? I remember when the Clintons were ridiculed for reporting the value of donated clothes, including underwear. Did that them appear “more favorable “?

    Saturday 4/13

    Oh, I am a napper too. In fact lately, I am napping too much. I have a routine health check scheduled, I intend to ask about getting my thyroid checked. Eldest ds and I drove to Seattle yesterday. He amazed them with his endurance on the treadmill-went 17 minutes, and he had worn the wrong shoes. No major arrhythmias, echo was good. They are going to have him follow-up with a geneticist. We had lunch at a cute little diner.I had something called Eggs Carmel with artichoke, avocado , mushrooms, tomato, jack cheese, cilantro and chipotle sour cream. He had corned beef hash. And they had the most heavenly coffee. The weather was partly sunny yesterday, but the rain has returned. Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me, is about to start. Later, j22

    The Congressional Thread

    I guess I don't understand why she said that Representative Lieu thinks black people are stupid. Did I miss something? As a media personality, I think Ms. Owens has to realize that what she says will be taken out of context by those who disagree with her. I know many criticized how the previous president spoke, but I think he was mostly trying to be very deliberate about how what he said could be taken out of context. He got pretty burned early on when he described the police officers who disrespected Professor Gates when he was locked out of his home, as stupid.

    Okay, I was going to add to my original post, but I couldn't get the cursor to appear after the picture. Anyway, yesterday I fought the urge to throttle crazy coworker during our meeting. We only work together for about 2 hours each Wednesday, but that is almost too much. I pointed out to her some errors and unclear charting she had done, and expressed that I was frustrated about the amount of time it took to correct. She always blames someone else, or wants to change the procedure, instead of trying to just do things the way everyone else does. And the lists! A weekly calendar, plus a list of routine tasks, plus a list of what clients will be seen, plus a list of her special projects she's doing, plus a monthly calendar. And each list has a special code that no one but her understands. Argle, bargle. Anyway, she is still alive, and I am not in jail, and off for the next 6 days. Of steady rain. Ta, ta, off to run some errands, and purchase a new, hypoallergenic mattress pad. j22
