They do that up north to.
I live in Illinois and there is a gas station here that posts the bad checks on this huge wall they have.
Yep, so were we - the Metro North!
North Carolina
North Carolina here too!
Only in North America

By the way...I worked a 12 hour shift today. I really don't need the correction on my spelling. I realize I hit the 'n' instead of the 'm'. I'm done now...this is dumb.
Me, too! We're in north Fla so
still haven't had the worst yet.  Can you believe it is starting this early?  This is getting pretty old!!   I guess this one shouldn't be to bad though (hopefully).  Stay safe!!
No, I'm in the north (Michigan) and (sm)
really don't have any at this time, either; I've only had a couple of accounts over the years where there were lots of drawls, I think one was a V.A. in S. Carolina. I think now they've probably all been replaced by ESLs!
Anyone from Georgia?

Looking for some info about Gainseville GA in Hall County. What kind of community? Nice place to live, etc... Thanks!

Thanks Georgia Gal!

That was some peachy-fine info you gave out.

Thanks from a Florida Gal!!

To Georgia Gal
Amen.. I agree with you totally. Heck, if I could work for cash, I would too. More power to them. Anyway, who is going to report a person to the IRS for paying cash to someone? I sure wouldn't. Great Post!!
I'm in Georgia, too.
They're pressuring our kids because the schools around here are so bad, and they're trying to move up the ladder within the 50 states in terms of test scores. My local superintendent of schools is constantly making excuses about why our scores are lower, i.e. absences on test days, higher standards, etc. It's a bunch of junk. The teachers are being pressured to get the students to score higher on two tests per year rather than teaching like the old days. In addition, the AR (accelerated reader) program has turned my son away from wanting to read just for the sake of doing so. He used to actually enjoy the stories and didn't worry about how many points the books were worth.
Also in Georgia
hubby says he paid $2.04 yesterday, and saw $2.02 this morning . . . he wondered if you were using a store discount card, and I wondered what area of Georgia you are in. We are in Gwinnett County.
anybody else around here from Georgia - and where? nm
North Alabama Transcriptionists
Are there any hospitals based in North Alabama who use at-home Radiology Transcriptionists?
Any North Alabama Transcriptionists?
I posted on the state board, but I don't think many people go to that board.  I was just wondering if there any home-based transcriptionists near me.  Thank you for your time.

I am in Limestone County.
North Myrtle Beach
Having lived at Pawley's Island - this is some really pretty country.  Get out of the car at the Myrtle Beach Sign in the middle of the highway for some photo ops.  Also, for those of you traveling to North Myrtle Beach - please make a short trip (30 minutes with no traffic) down to Pawley's Island and see the Brookgreen Gardens and Hunnington Beach.  There are also a lot of "real" little shops at Pawley's Island with real treasures to find - not cheap souvenier stuff.  You can watch the weavers make the Original Pawley's Island Hammacks.  I know that you are all probably going for either the beach or the golf, but beware that the sewage drains into the ocean up on the Grand Strand and there is usually a daily feces report - so if it is high - don't go into the water.  I hope that ya'll have a great time.  If you get the chance - try some Shrimp and Grits, frogmore stew and some of the other low country delicacies.  You will have a blast.  Remember hurricane insurance, too - in case one is headed that way and you don't want to lose your money on your flight and accommodations. 
In Columbia, TN now about 3 hours north. nm

But of course, only in North America for the most part.
Read up some more. They use this term WIDELY in Asia...go figure! Don't know about you but I'm a bit sick of the politically correct crap going on in this country. I will side with the first dictionary - that it is grammatically correct albeit politically incorrect, because like who cares? I sure don't. : D
Yep, a hospital north of the river.
I'll email you the name.
Would love too, but I am in North Wilmington sm
and can't afford the time away from my account this time of year. Would love to take you up on it in the summer time. Spring is just so busy for me.
I'm in North Central Indiana
and have used ATT/yahoo DSL. Not sure if this would work for your or not, but I've used it for years and very rarely have problems.

Note it says North America - sm
that does not necessarily mean in the United States, still could be Mexico or Canada.
Companies In Georgia
I would like some information on medical transcription companies in Georgia  Thanks
Pebblebrook HS, Georgia

So sorry to hear about this. Here in Georgia...sm
people are now suing owners of pit bulls when their dogs kill or attack themselves, their kids, animals, etc. The state had legislation last year to ban these vicious mutts but it didn't pass.
Same here, in Bethlehem, Georgia . . .
Weatherbug says 81 degrees here!
thanks...Loved Georgia!...nm
Asking rate in Georgia for MTs?sm

Just curious as to what other Georgia MTs with their own accounts are getting per line.  I have been an MT for about 12 years and don't think I am being paid enough, but would like to know what everyone else is asking before I raise my rates. Thanks!!

I'm in northwest Georgia ....
specifically, Cedartown.
Not so hillbilly to me-from Georgia!
Hi, Renee. Welcome to Georgia. SM
I am in the far north portion of the state, where my husband and I and our pets are snuggled inside enjoying a very nice Saturday while the snow falls outside. Far more serene than your home with two little ones, no doubt, but missing out on all the fun too. Speaking of, I can't even read the paper when watching my tiny grandson, so I can't begin to imagine how you moms manage to get any work done.

Yes!!  I am here in Williamson, Georgia/ Griffin area.

Any Canadian MTs here? Am thinking of moving north. Could you

I am interested in knowing a few things about living in Canada and working for the U.S. company.  I also understand Canadian medical institutions utilize MTs.  Would like to correspond with an MT living in Canada. 

My e-mail address is above.  If you have time to answer a few questions, please e-mail.  I am considering moving to B.C., Vancouver or Okanagan Valley depending what I find during my scouting of each area; am presently in California. 

Thank you!

Hope she lives in the north cuz if she gets in the sun and walks
across a highway it will create a grease slick from all that lard rendering. 
Hi Soho! Just north of you in Dutchess county. :) nm
North & South Florida are radically different...

I grew up in the Miami area and agree with all of the negative posts here.  It was always hot  and humid with lots of BUGS!  There was maybe 6 weeks of pleasant weather in the winter.

I've been living in northern Florida for many years and love it.  It is like a whole different state than south Fla.  We do get hot and humid summers but that weather lasts about 4 months or so.  We have a couple of months before and after summer where it is hot but not unbearable.  Then the rest of the year is gorgeous.  We get hard freezes a few times in the winter and the leaves change color (December and January) here.  We experience the seasons without snow (once every 15 or 20 years) and have ice and frost only occasionally.  Definitely wear coats and sweaters.  Instead of palm trees everwhere, we live in a forested area and have oaks, maples, elms, etc as well as the pines.  We are inland a bit but the beach is about 30 to 40 minutes away.  Being inland, I never worried about hurricanes before.  I just don't know any more though.  These last 2 years were awful.  Anyway, I'm rambling.  Good luck with your move and I hope it is well north of south Florida and Orlando.

Up North, experienced, educated, well-rounded MTs.....sm
are making $19.76 hr average plus incentives, production bonus, and bennies....I loved working in-hospital, but right now I have family situations which must come first...no amount of money to sacrifice their welfare.
In Cherokee County, north of Atlanta
No Imail. Just call Georgia.
Does anyone live in Adairsville (Georgia?) sm
If so, if you bank with Crescent Bank or know anyone who works there or does... tell them thank you.  I'm a foster parent and the bank sponsored my foster child for the holidays and today I received a lot of gifts for her for Christmas... more than I ever dreamed she'd get.  The people did a great job of making sure that this Christmas is unlike the past ones... where in the past the parents would take any gifts and sell/return them for drug money.  This year she gets to keep her presents since the parents are no longer involved in her life. 
Buffy, do you live in Georgia?
The first factory is being built here in Georgia....sm
Supposed to bring in about 2000-2500 jobs. Hopefully their quality of vehicles will improve. Time will tell!
Pike County, Georgia. nm
Any MTs from Georgia, please see state board. nm
I give, where in rural Georgia
are you talking about? I think I could put up hearing that more than I can with what I hear out of the Atlanta stations, at least it is not butchering the English language - just maybe their own language like I had mine from moving from Tenn. I understand that nexted above- I have heard that and even worse. I have a daughter-in-law who is parapro right outside of Atlanta (Jonesboro) and supposedly they are not to correct children when they speak incorrectly- she says heck with that and does. Can we say ebonics?
Are they in a really small town in Georgia?
My SIL visited me in Georgia from California
and she was shocked to see what kind of home we could get here for under $250,000 compared to what they have where she lives. Her thinking was my community was really high in cost when no home goes for over $450,000. The prices are really great here.
