HURRY UP--someone say YES!
.
Sorry, was in a hurry
Basically just wondering if we should write to Obama regarding keeping the same systems in place and just putting the electronic files now dictated together (rather than specific software for the docs to do their own).

We could mention that we don't want to lose (not use - lol) our jobs.

Think we should, or don't you all think we have anything to fret?
No, not take over. Increase international labor use? Yes.
owning a US company but using international labor.


Formerly International Correspondence Schools...sm
...which did not have a stellar reputation.

The College is "accredited" by the Distance Education and Training Council, which is recognized as an accrediting agency by the US Dept of Education but NOT by many traditional colleges and universities.

Note that their high school is accredited by something called the Middle States Commission on Secondary Schools, which people often confuse with the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

If you're planning on a program that will involve either licensing or transfer to a "traditional" school, graduate work, etc., you should check with the licensing agency in your state or the school you would be transferring to in order to be sure that the Penn Foster credential or degree will be acceptable.
I did try to save the file first but it wouldn't even let me save it.

LOL!! Tell him to hurry, gizzards are almost gone. sm
You are married to a man of gourmet tastes, apparently.  Glad to hear it. 
Kiss off that is, in too much of a hurry!

Better hurry to Vegas (sm)
Heard her say on a talk show that she would very much like to give it up because of her son. Then told the story of her son seeing her perform for the first time, as he really had no clue what she did in reality. He said he didn't mind sharing her with the world! He had seen her perform and the audiences response. She just may give it up you never know.

In a big hurry to grow up at 20, BIG MISTAKE

No one at 20 has the life experience to know herself, let alone know what to want and expect in another person.


Second time, and successful time, age 39. Better to choose than to "settle" for whatever's in front of you at the time.


Had it. You'd get tired of cleaning it in a hurry.

You guys must be young.


International Red Cross started the aid to the Tsunami victims first.

It was over a week before we could start shipping in aid and a couple weeks before we had the telethon.  It's only been 2 days so far.  I still believe that when it comes down to human suffering people will respond no matter what country it happens in.  It just takes time.


What really angers me is that we're hearing on the news that a major portion of the cost of aid in our OWN country will come from donations of US citizens.  Where does our tax money go when we need it the most, with situations like these?  Our taxes should be used for the citizens of the United States, and whatever is left over for aid to others, not for subsidizing every other country in the world that our govt. pledges it to.

Strike looms at Hastings hospital


By TIM HARLOW, Star Tribune
Last update: November 21, 2008 - 11:12 PM




About 230 employees at Regina Medical Center in Hastings are spending today making final preparations for a two-day strike they have called for next week.


Nurses aides, X-ray technicians, physical therapy aides, housekeepers, dietary workers, medical transcriptionists, operating room aides, patient care technicians who are part of Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Healthcare Minnesota are set to walk of the job at 6 a.m. Monday unless they can come to agreement on a new contract over the weekend, said Ryan Nagle, a union spokesman.


No new talks are scheduled paving the way for the two-day walkout on Monday and Tuesday. The union is not calling for an open-ended strike because "we want to limit any impact on patients" but still get its message out to the hospital and the community, Nagle said.


The workers have been without a contract since Oct. 31 and have rejected offers that would bring them higher costs for health insurance and a reduce retirement benefits. Pay is not a sticking point in the negotiations, Nagle said.


Union members and hospital officials have met several times in the past three weeks, but last met on Monday.


Nagle said union members will meet at 3:30 p.m. today at the Pleasant Hill Library to make picket signs and support each other.



Is there engineer week? Astronaut week? Veterinarian week?

Hurry, watch the news & I swear

You will see my last dictator dictating from a chopper with at least 10 choppers around him, landing in the middle of a Rolling Stones concert notifying the fans that Mick is sick and won't be there


just don't know how better to describe this background noise that is obviously distracting to him...oh, please add,  oops change that...uhh, hmm where was I   I have a migraine now and I don't even know what one feels like and from the looks of my que, I'm going in for round 2


I signed up too...1st 500 members free, I was 303...hurry! .sm
I did sign up since it was free. I didn't have much time to peruse the entire website. Other than having a 20% discount in their store, what are the other advantages that justify a $99 membership fee??
I would highly recommend the Enclave Suites on International Drive (sm)
We stayed there when the kids were young, when we lived up north. We had a 2 BR suite. Each bedroom had its own bath plus they were on opposite ends of the suite for privacy. There was a good size kitchenette, large LR/DR area and balcony. There was a restaurant right off the pool area which served a full menu plus every day from 4-7 they had happy hour with free buffett. At night they had live music. Only about 45 minutes to Daytona as well.
Happy MQer-Hurry, look out your back window!
I  see T.W.H. getting out of a lawn chair in your back yard and stealing your grill to cook up a Nathans Hot Dog.
Thanks for the reminder that
Dennis Weaver was in that movie--what a thriller from Steven Spielberg. Dennis was very talented indeed.

I was also sorry to hear that Darren McGavin died. I loved watching "The Night Stalker" in high school.
Reminder (SM)

Thanks for the reminder ...
I am so embarrassed to admit that I like that show, and have watched it since the beginning!
reminder yourself of....
the fact you don't have to get up and leave the house every day, get dressed, go out in all weather, put up with coworkers who can't see past their nose, for starters.
i needed that reminder too, thanks

Nothing like a reminder that they outsource.

Reminder of why we love this job!!

Hi everyone - I have seen some posts recently about burnout - I got it after 9 years myself - went back to secretarial work at a hospital.  Thought it was great for about 6 months - could balance my checkbook, have lunch with co-workers, had a reason to get dressed up and get out of the house every day....except that there was a 45 minute commute each way a.m. and p.m. - because of the parking situation, which added 20 minutes each way.  And the fact that I could never run any errands or make any doctors appointments.


Oh, and the fact that when my children were sick 3 days in a 7 month period I got called in to my boss' office and chewed out for not having someone else available to watch my sick children.  Oh, and the office politics, let's not forget those. 


Soo.....as transcriptionists, we get to use our brains and work hard, but we also have so much more flexibility.  We can have the laundry going while we work!  When we do a good job and get more work done, we make more money!  If we are 5 minutes late to work, we don't get "written up" for it.  We aren't treated like high school kids!  It's great!  I am giving my notice.  I can't wait to get back to the job that I once felt so burned out on!  I have a whole new perspective and a whole new appreciation for my "old" job.  I can't wait!!


It is a good reminder
Not just this board but others as well.  If you belong to another board, just Google your screen name and see what comes up.  I have been a part of parenting boards, in-law boards and I used to post but quit.  Not just because of the rudeness of other members, but mainly because I donít know who could be reading.  If you write things out of anger, maybe the next day, the next week or even the next year, you may not feel that way anymore but it is still there on the web.   If that person you wrote about stumbled across that, put two and two together..well old wounds can be reopened  I just quit writing personal stuff on the web all together.  I think it is best to go to a close trusting friend or even a shrink for stuff like that. 
All's well that ends well

I probably wouldn't change anything. I was an MT for 15 years and it was a good ride. The last 5 years or so my salary began sliding until I couldn't make ends meet anymore. About a year ago I left the field to become a dialysis technician and just got accepted into nursing school. I wouldn't change the timing. Everything unfolded the way it was supposed to I guess.


I feel very sad for the loss of a great career. I loved being an MT and I miss it. I just couldn't hang in there anymore. Maybe I would have worked harder on my education while I had the chance. Other than that I don't have any regrets.


Woo! The Fun Never ENDS!
My new job. Grrrhhhh.

I like the job, but I'm irritated by Barb, our trainer/mentor/whip master.

She is on me like stink on a skunk.

Wow. I will give her one thing . . . she is right persistent. When she calls me lets it ring seven times until the answering machine picks up. She never leaves a message. Instead, Barb will hang up and re-dial. This morning I answered on the 77th ring. It was all I could stand.

They probably have to do it that way, because I'm certain a few of their new hires have escaped. Long term this is going to turn out to be a good job, but Barbie has to go.

She needs to hop in her little dream car and head on out to Malibu before I push her in the Easy Bake Oven.

"Ring.... rinnnnggggg..... riiiiiiiiiinnnnggggggggggg"

Spying my ID, I see that would be her now. Swell. Speak of the devil.

I'm trying to ignore it.

Did you ever see that fly paper that comes in a little tube that you hang from the ceiling to catch flies? This pre-dated the No Pest Strip that hung in a little box that looked like a slice of Velveeta so I'm giving my age away. I really hate fly paper. Invariably, if I come close to it that stuff is attracted to my hair like a magnet. It might catch flies, but it lethal to long hair.

"Rinnggggg.. ...... riiiinggggggg...... riiiinggggggg"

Yep. You got it.

Barb again. She never gives up. I suppose she missed the class in fifth grade on telephone etiquette when they said, "if people don't answer, they are not home!"

"Rinnggggg.. ...... riiiinggggggg...... riiingggggg . . . . .. riiiiiiiiing."

"Go away Barb."

"Rinnggggg.. ...... riiiinggggggg...... riiingggggg . . . . .. riiiiiiiiing."

Oh, that does it! I've had enough.

Today, I make sticky hat for Barb.

. . . or maybe, I can get one of those bug zapper things and interface that to my telephone?

Hmmmm . . . . now there's an idea. Once I get the TeleBug-Barb-Zapper perfected, they can take this transcription job and . . . . .

LOL. You're right. It's been a while since I watched SNL. Thanks for the reminder.

Thanks for the reminder, will paste it on my desk! nm

I agree. It never ends.

Yeppers, it never ends. (sm)

They act like they're doing you a huge favor to make $60.00 a day.  Who can get by on that????  I hear ya, I've worked for a company too where I made $3.00 an hour.  And they rant and rave about how good their company is, PULEEZE!  If they were so great they wouldn't be advertising!  If they paid well they wouldn't be advertising!  Wish they'd get the picture!  If they truly paid well and were good to work for we'd all be lined up to work for them! 


Sick and tired.

never get out into the real world. I came from a hospital and I KNOW what EMR is all about and how savvy the docs are with computers. Your comment was offensive.

Desktop calendar with reminder options....
Does anyone use this?  With going back to school and 3 kidss and tons of appointments, I amm finding that using the old calendar on the wall isn't too safe anymore.  Given the fact that I amm tied to my desk most of the time, I was wondering if anyone knows where I could get a free desktop calendar that will warn me when something is scheduled that day, etc.  I know there is probably a way to do this, but I have no idea.  Any info would be appreciated.  I see the free downloadable calendars, but I amm afraid of those.  Does windows or microsoft office come equipped with this?  Again, any info appreciated.  TIA
They don't realize that VR often ends up costing - sm
a whole lot more. Not just the software, equipment, upgrades, etc, but also the tech support, editors, and also trainers needed to introduce new staff to the system. Also time spent while doctors *train* the system. Then, when they ultimately give up and dump it 6 months or a year down the road, and can't get reimbursed for what they wasted on it, that's expensive, too.
