    The Squabbling Babies on Capitol Hill

    Your home health provider hours were cut due to employer not wanting to/ unable to afford providing healthcare insurance to it's employees who work more than 30hrs/week as required by ACA. My employer, a Home Health Agency, has always provided healthcare benefits to staff working in budgeted part-time 24hrs or more/week positions along with aides being paid minimum $12/hr as "liveable" wage.

    NCIS goes for a drive

    Bill Cosby was entertainment after Second City 4 yrs ago in Chicago at AACN's NTI where we exhibited. Brian thought Second City rocked, Cosby ok. My then 23yo son was blown away by Cosby "he's original... Second City same thing see on TV." Think he was brainwashed as my DH played Cosby album To Russell My Brother, Whom I Slept With often when he was a child. [h=1][/h]

    What is the Single Favorite Moment of your Life?

    Moved from helpdesk to General Off-Topic Discussions. My favorite moment would be the birth of our first son in 1985, after 10 years of trying. Had given up on having children and decided to just spoil nieces and nephews. Bonus son in 1988 due to His blessing.

  13. ‘Four little girls’ killed in 1963 church bombing honored with Congressional Gold Medal Washington Post By Scott Wilson, Published: May 24 E-mail the writer
  14. Thanks for posting this news. Congressional Medals, voted on by 2/3 Congress, are awarded to persons "who have performed an achievement that has an impact on American history and culture that is likely to be recognized as a major achievement in the recipient's field long after the achievement" I remember watching this event on the news when I was a child. Last year while traveling to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, I visited 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham with my Dad. We had a personal tour of the Church given by one of the male parishioners waiting to hold a weekly support group. It brought a flood of memories back regarding the struggle for integration of schools and housing --there was a fire bombing of home 1/2 mile from my grade school a year after this event. As we were leaving, the gentlemen held our hands and spontaneously prayed with my Dad and I for a safe journey...not something done in our Catholic faith. Later in our trip, we barely avoided a 3 car pileup; Dad and I looked at each other and said simultaneously "that prayer worked". How fitting that the first African American President bestowed this Congressional Medal award. As a country, we are much better off for having undergone this struggle. Need to wake up Congress that the current political bickering is similar to these struggles of 50 yrs ago and we need to start working collaboratively to move forward.
