    Thanks, Joe. I had a feeling that was the case.

    Ted, you are such a team player, and all around good guy. Hello to all. I have no experience with recruiters, but Joe does. Do they all use the word AWESOME, over and over? How about the phrase; You are really checking off all of my boxes?! Nonetheless, it does seem like an AWESOME job! And something very much needed in this troubled state. The Blue Grass has received a month's worth of rain, in THREE days. Talli has rain rot, and is missing chunks of hair along his top line. He is also covered in hives. From his face, down to his flanks. Covered in hives. Biggie has NO rain rot, and a few hives. Don't know if any of you read Theresa Brown, RN, and her columns, but I enjoy her writing and perspective. She was a college English professor, before becoming a nurse. Her first book, was about her first year of nursing. Second book, was about working as a nurse on a cancer unit. I first read her, in the NY Times (she writes a column periodically). Now, she has a column on CNN! The first, ran yesterday: Healthcare Isn't Doing Less With More Interesting piece, because I have been going back and forth, with the CEO of our facility over a lack of vital sign machines. I reminded her that I attended Town Hall with her last year, when she was told of the shortage of the machines on the units. She wrote back, and assured me the problem is no more. There is one machine per five patients. I wrote back, no, your math is wrong. My unit still only has TWO machines, for 40 patients, and one machine, doesn't always work properly. She wrote back, oh, we have done our math wrong! I have been away, but will look it this. Brown's CNN piece, is about the very problem I described. Check her out! Appointment with hand surgeon today, to go over results of EMG. Dropping off long, handwritten portion of health department application. Does it really matter where I went to high school, 40 years ago? One chapter left in Calypso, the David Sedaris book. I have laughed, and I mean, LAUGHED, so much while reading this book. You would like it, Stars. It is filled with absurdities of family life. And he is SO sarcastic! Have a great day. We should be getting more rain!

    Stars, I don't eat oatmeal! I have a two-egg, onion, cheddar cheese, mushroom, spinach omelet, nearly every morning. Sides include cottage cheese and avacado. The exception being mornings when I go out to breakfast with co-workers. Gray Boy, the tank of the parking lot cats, was waiting by my car, this morning, when I exited work. Yes, he knows my car. Waits by it, and screams when he sees me. He is kind of mean to the other cats, so I have to reprimand him, to remain in his lane. He only likes Little Gray. And he can be mean to her, sometimes too. They are usually always together. If I ever leave my job, I will have to continue to feed these cats. So many cats! Cats everywhere!!!

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    And perhaps he does these things because he lacks the intellectual depth needed for his position. I am sure you heard Trump, as did I, say the FBI director is "wrong," about the illegalities of so-called opposition research opportunities coming from foreign entities. Trump is clearly a moron. He proves the point, on a daily basis. While I understand what an opportunist like Mitch McConnell gets from supporting Trump, it still isn't clear to me, what the average Trumpster gets for their undying admiration. A clown, who is willing to voice their abhorrent thoughts? That's what Rush Limbaugh is for!

    Work SUCKED last night. Eight med-surge patients, until 0100, then NINE med-surge patients, including one, who used to weigh 600 pounds.. He is still big. His ostomy had to be changed five times. It kept leaking, I literally couldn't leave his room. The stoma was bleeding. Lots of blood. Called resident at 0500. "Oh, we'll be rounding in an hour. We'll look at him then." Okay. He was sent out at 0720. Two developmentally challenged patients, in the same room. One is nice, the other completely rude. Such an awful night. My Italian friend helped me with the ostomy, as did the charge nurse. I needed help because I also had three patients with IV infusions. Yes, I work rehab!!!! It is med-surge, minus the ER admits. I am also applying at my local health department. Hope you all have a good day.

    Looks like Trump and Friends are finally facing the reality of his poor poll numbers. From today's WaPo, Analysis: Trump's Internal Poll Numbers Are Out. And Both They And His Team's Response Paint A Bleak Picture

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Friday night, I read an article from the WaPo, about an Iraq war veteran, turned KKK member. He embraced White Nationalism, and a hatred of Muslims, after serving overseas, in the military. He also became a drug addict, after his military service. He took his four-year-old son, to KKK meetings. Yes, I read all about his ideals. And then I read about the Syrian refugee, who came to this country as a young child, and is now a cardiologist. The pair met, and the MD now meets with this young man regularly, to bridge racial and cultural divides. The former White Nationalist is now drug-free and piecing his life back together, after renouncing the KKK. Yeah, I understand "why" the young American was attracted to, and joined the KKK. But it doesn't mean I respect his former viewpoint. My respect goes to that Syrian refugee, who overcame great obstacles to become an MD, and volunteers his off hours to help those who would hate him because of his religion, and because he is a refugee.

    There is a Republican alternative to Trump: William Weld. I have brought him up many, many, times. But Trumpsters won't give up their xenophobic, homophobic, racist, guy. They are sticking with him.

    Presidential Election 2020

    I don't know that his flip on the Hyde Amendment makes him a poor candidate. Personally, I think there are other reasons why he may be a poor candidate. But at this point in time, I am not paying much attention to the post parade (horse racing analogy). If Trump is the opponent, Bozo the Clown would get my vote. Anybody but Trump!

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I am always tickled when right-wing folks accuse the other side of taking marching orders from the media. What does that even mean? The media I read, and listen to, don't give marching orders. They are simply functioning in their proper role as the People's eyes and ears. Another check and balance on authority, if you will. And unlike the folks criticizing the media, I actually have experience as a print and radio reporter. I never gave marching orders. I wouldn't even know how to do that. But when university employees were told once again, there was no money in the budget for raises, while the university president received and accepted a $200,000 bonus, I knew it was my job to uncover and spread sunshine on the story. Marching orders? Nope.

    Have fun at Fenway Park, BC. Oh, Stars, what can I say? You are lucky you are not getting the rain that we have been getting; EVERY day! I hate that circle of life thing, Tweety. My nephew at the barn, Knots, may have Potomac Horse Fever, which can be deadly. He has had small bouts of diarrhea, which can kill horses, as they dehydrate quickly. As of last night, he was still being treated at the barn; IV antibiotics, ice packs on feet, to prevent founder, and Banamine for belly pain. His owner is pretty much there 24/7. I brought her rotisserie chicken last night for dinner, and a 10-pound bag of ice, as refrigerator ice maker is slow. Scary, scary stuff. I hugged Biggie tight last night. My friend's daughter FINALLY got herself organized, and is headed to upstate NY. My friend is looking forward to 12 weeks of peace. Untreated mental illness is not fun to live with, from what she has told me. Oh, there is a vaccine for Potomac Horse Fever. Unfortunately, it isn't very good. Biggie is vaccinated, as is Knots. The thought is, even though the vaccine will not prevent illness, the symptoms will be less severe. Blood was pulled, but it must be analyzed at Equine Diagnostic Center at UK, which is closed until Monday! More rain expected today! Safe travels to all.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    You seem very intent on supporting the Walk Away movement, as pertaining to Democrats. Have you spent as much time examining the numbers of Walk Aways from the GOP, since Trump had become it's head? I think you would find it interesting because so many prominent members of the GOP, have decided to Step Away from a party that has become synonymous with hate.

    My definition of mean spiritedness includes insulting the mayor of your host city abroad. Referring to another American as "nasty," and then lying about it. Referring to Speaker Pelosi as nasty while abroad, and Tweeting inane remarks about a singer/actress while abroad. Where is the Trumpster outrage at such mean spiritedness?
