  1. A jury in Florida just found George Zimmerman not guilty on all counts in the death of Trayvon Martin. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/07/13/george-zimmerman-trayvon-martin-jury-saturday-deliberations/2514233/

    Hurricane Irene May Strike The East Coast

    I'd stick with I-95 or whatever main route you were going to take. At least those highways will take you through major towns/cities so if you need to get off the expressway there will be some place (hotel, motel, rest stop, etc) for you to go. If you are coming down through the NYC area, I'd stay "north" and avoid anything that takes you through south Brooklyn and Staten Island on your way to NJ. Indeed have a hunch the Garden State and or Turnpike may be closed if things get bad tomorrow into Sunday. Charge up your cell phone and GPS so they are full of juice and remember a pay check can be replaced (hopefully), but your life cannot! Check in and let us know when you make it to your next gig. Bide well DGTG

    Hurricane Irene May Strike The East Coast

    Staten Island University Hospital In Da House - Whoop, Whoop! ABC Evening News made the hospital workers working in the hurricane zone their "Persons of The Week" and featured the evacuation of SIUH complete with onsite interviews with CofS Dr. Jarrett (formerly of a Katrina ravaged hospital), and various nurses and doctors working to move patients out. Methinks ABC news chose SIUH because Dr. Jarrett had been through Katrina; getting to Staten Island during the day via car isn't easy (I should know *LOL*), and the area around the hospital (according to friends and family) is chaos.

    Hurricane Irene May Strike The East Coast

    Here in NYC a state of emergency has been declared. Not sure how much of this is Mr. Bloomberg's and the city's reaction to being accused of not being ready for last winter's Christmas blizzard, but ... Staten Island Hospital, Coney Island Hospital and all other healthcare facilities in low lying NYC areas have been ordered to evacute all patients. New York City Prepares For Arrival Of Hurricane Irene By Ordering Evacuation Of Some Hospitals « CBS New York Both campuses of Staten Island University Hospital will either discharge patients, send them to Richmond University Hospital (former Saint Vincent's Hospital) or other nursing homes or hospitals owned by North Shore-Long Island Jewish system. Current head of the NYC Department of Health held the same position in New Orleans when Katrina struck so guess he's learned a few things and is not playing this time.

    Catholic Hospitals, Brothers & Nuns

    Just did quick "Google" on Daughters of Charity, Austin Texas, and they are still around. Unlike up here in NYC it seems the sisters have moved with the times and not only have kept their hospitals, but expanded services.

    Catholic Hospitals, Brothers & Nuns

    Since the The Hospitalières, a Roman Catholic nursing order arrived in North America and established a formal system of training nurses in the 1600's, the church though her religous men and women have been at the forefront of not only providing care to the poor, but many innovations in the profession. In these challenging times charity care is struggling to hold on and many great Catholic hospitals/healthcare systems are either closing (Saint Vinny's of NYC), merging or being bought out by private investor groups. So wanted to take a moment for a look back, but found someone else already has done the leg work. I invite you to visit this site and browse though a little history of hospitals, nursing schools and the other great work done by those who saw it as their mission in life to provide for those who could not. http://www.flickr.com/photos/65359853@N00/sets/72157624205962066/detail/

    Speaking of sanitary whites and things no longer worn, guess what else sells for big money? Vintage Playtex rubber girdles. They go for anywhere from two to over four hundred dollars. The mind reels as to whom is shelling out so much money for forty year old rubber.

    Honey you ought to be thankful for polyester blend uniforms, especially for students. Otherwise you would be stuck ironing your uniforms before clinical after they came from the wash. That or paying to have them sent out to a laundry. Polyester/cotton blends were also streets better than pure Nylon,Dacron and other man made textiles. Darn cold in winter and hot as blazes in summer. *LOL*

    Those strings are there to help secure the cap to one's head. Take a peek at your grandmother's or other elderly females "Sunday going to meeting" hats and you'll often see the same things. Back when women wore hats routinely outdoors designers came up with otherways besides hat pins (which really only work if one is wearing really big hair, and or has one's hair piled up into a bun), to keep a woman's hat on her head especially during windy weather. Look at old 1940's and 1950's films and often you can see the strings at the back or sides of a woman's head. These strings were also a boon when a hat was designed to sit towards the front of one's head or slope down towards the forehead. Think how much time and bother such an arrangement would have saved grads from schools like Saint Vincent's in NYC and the College of Staten Island. Both schools had caps that looked like winged birds drooping down one's forehead! *LOL*

    According to the seller's information the cap is from the WWII era. Am going to have to find out what school saddled their students with that cap.

    In various adaptations and colours probably the most common student nurse uniform of the 1980's and 1980's. Well this one and the white bibbed "action back" job that is still around.
