LOVE ER!!! I watch the re-runs every day, and watch the new ones on Thursday night!!
I make jewelry too

Looking forward to trying to sell it this Christmas season.  Glass beads and gems earrings and necklaces.  :)

Has anyone ever sold jewelry?

I want to sell a DeBeers' diamond that will get me out of a tight financial bind.  However, an ad in the the newspaper made me think of how easy it would be to knock my over and steal my ring.   The jewelry stores said that it would sit on their shelf possibly for a few months.  My dog is requiring emergency vet care and it is going to total much money.  I know the pawn shop is a possibility.  Any ideas?  I hate this idea because I know I will not get what it is worth but it is the one thing I have that would bring me hard cold cash.  Thanks!

Selling jewelry sm
I have some to sell as well and was wondering about E-Bay. Do you know if you have to pay taxes, file forms, etc., if anyone does buy anything from you on there? Does anyone else have ideas that do not involve getting a business license? I think a tag sale would bring people around who would only want a quarter. I could use some extra cash and the things I have are nice and never worn, not a jewelry person but have made some from fine gems. Been thinking of where to go with it.

OMG How interesting! What style of jewelry do you make?!
I really find that fascinating!
You should have a website and post your jewelry for orders!
I'd love to see pieces that could be ordered!
Hey, I got an idea. My sister works for a jewelry store.
And then there's my friend who works for Krogers. Maybe he shouldn't have to pay for groceries. My sister works for Target. She said she didn't get any free clothes or appliances, just 10% off purchase with her employee discount. I think Target should be boycotted because they don't give employees free stuff don't you.
how about a men's style jewelry box with maybe yours/his names engraved or pic of you 2 on front.
BFA in Jewelry/Metals, did craft shows here and there but did not make a living -sm
goal though for this Fall or soon that is, is to get my work done by noon, then spend 3 hours at least 2 x a week in my studio which I have not touched in about 6 years.....see if maybe I can get the ball rolling again with that via local shops, studios, etc. Used to have reps that sold my jewelry in Philly which was quite nice.
Sally's? Wow, I would never have guessed. JCPenny carries some at their jewelry counter as well
don't type double spaces. Type single. Then no one will be cheated.
I can type with wine, can't type with coffee, though...too jittery.
That is, type the code above before and after what you want bolded in the text-to-type box. nm
For me it isn't an account type but a dictator type ...
and that would be oriental. An oriental dictator (hahaha, that kind of sounds funny...hahaha) is the most challenging for me.
No, you don't type directly into ES. You type in Word -
or whatever their platform is, just like you did with your tapes.

Then you do your line count in Word or the platform.
You should type them. I usually type them in parentheses following the diagnosis.
remind me, type what they say, type what they say, type....
"He indicated that at the beginning of the year he complained of health problems recently but has gotten better."  C'mon doc, which one is it?????
Shorthand users: Is there a way to type a word, use a slash and then type another word..sm

immediately following the slash and have it expand.  For example if I needed to transcribe mass/sebaceous cyst, is there a way to use my expanded sebaceous cyst without having to back space after I type the slash mark?  TIA

Will have to watch for it
half the time I don't pay attention
I don't watch TV much, but I certainly
would never watch anything about Bobby Brown.  I don't know what it is with these people who think anyone cares about their lives.  They are just trying to feed their already overinflated egos.
I don't get to watch TV any more.
Chained to my desk and overstressed.  I can't wait for summer to be over.  Plus, I got up sick this morning. 
Me too! Watch all of them...
as well as the Discovery Health Channel, Animal Planet, and Style Network. The man who narrates on many of the A&E shows, Bill Kurtis, has such as soothing voice that I watch it at night when I need to fall asleep! I believe he is also the producer of some of the shows.
We don't watch TV much at all any more.
I hate reality shows, talk shows, soaps, crime shows, graphic content, and all that garbage.  Even the evening sitcoms are all rated TV14 with excessive amounts of sex, alternative lifestyles, gender bashing, adult situations and language.  The rest of the world can watch whatever trash they want to, but I'm not inviting it into my home in front of my children.  I'm not prejudiced either, but I don't agree with how rude sitcom families are.  The kids are all mouthy brats, the wife bashes the husband or vice versa.  It's not an accurate portrayal of true family life. 
watch out
Read the Terms and Conditions of the different unlimited plans carefully.  Most will start monitoring you after 5000 minutes a month and some specifically forbid it for MT (even the small business plans).  The only thing I have found that doesn't have specific minute limitations is VoIP.

I was just curious how the nonskaters were going to do.  It was fun to watch.   I don't think it is going to be as big as dancing with the stars.  I don't watch that reality show anyway.

Does anyone watch Y&R? sm

For those who do, what do you think about Nick and Phyllis, and Victoria and Brad...

First off, didn't Jack (Phyllis' husband) used to be Nick's stepdad?

And didn't Brad (Victoria's fiance) used to be married or engaged to her mom?

I'm sorry, I know it's a soap and all, but that is just sick! I just started watching it again after about 4-5 years, and it's funny how little things have actually changed....

Or like looking at your watch and then having to look again
no, but I do watch CMT.....nm

watch what you say here
I put a similar criticism on this board recently and was told that if I had a complaint to take it to the admin, and not place it on board. Negitivity was cited. talk about censorship!
I did not watch. I won't watch again now that
are boring, IMO. Taylor is no AI, if you ask me, but he'll end up winning because for some odd reason, everyone likes this guy (who I heard is a real jerk in person from someone who actually met him). I've seen people at our local karaoke night who can sing better than he can and, as an added bonus, they don't look like they are having seizures while they sing.

I'm actually glad Chris got sent home and out from under the AI curse. Aside from Kelly Clarkson, the only one America got right, the winners don't seem to go on to do a whole lot of anything. I mean, come on! Ruben and Fantasia who? Bo's at the top of the charts, Clay went on to have a couple of hits, and where are the actual AI winners?
We should watch for any
call-in shows that have senators or congressmen on them. Wouldn't that be great to be able to ask them questions about why the American public is being ignored on the issue of offshoring. I'm not good on the fly, so I'd have to have so questions thought out and written down to sound at all intelligent, LOL. I would try to be very specific so they couldn't weasel out of the question.
I mean Watch out (not what)
What you should watch for
are companies that want you to buy special software or equipment from them at significant expense so that they can train you with the promise that as soon as you are up to par, you will be hired. Odds are, you will never be "up to par" and will never be paid for your work while they get those reports done for free.

I had a job before that would watch you - sm
on via IM. I figured out how to have it on, but have it so they could not watch me (this was a few years ago, before you could set yourself up as invisible if you wanted to be). I hated the feeling that they were hovering over my shoulder during my set hours (yes I was an employee), and was used to being an IC. They were pretty good about it and did not hassle you but you had to be on IM while working so they could easily get in touch with you. I forgot a lot to turn it on....I eventually left them and now have an IC job that uses IM too, but I dont' have the same feeling with them, and I only use it really to talk to another MT who works on the same account as I do. The MTSO leaves me alone for the most part and that makes me happy.
Better Watch it!!!
My husband was in your same shoes 10 years ago... Very healthy, former marathon runner, never had insurance in his life...When we met, I said,"No way." His policy was free where he worked so he got it (BCBS)... When in May of 2003 he found a lump..turned out to be lymhoma... When I saw the first bill the hospital sent, I almost died...$125,000... But it was covered by BCBS.. all we paid was the out of pocket max for the year... Yes insurance is definitely worth it.....

But you sure have to watch your back.
Just watch reruns to get the fix. I already have
Also another similar kind of dark humor is on Nip/Tuck but I never seem to find it! 
Well, I did watch it last night
I thought sure it was going to be Claire.   Can't imagine what they could do for the finale.  They've already done it all.  I hope they don't kill anyone else off.  Nate sure did leave a mess, like you say.  Makes you think about yourself and not wanting to leave such a mess when you go yourself.  Maybe I'm just being maudlin, huh?  Anyway can't wait for next week.  Really got kinda nervous, though watching Brenda and Billy.  Glad it was just a dream - whew!
No, ALL little boys don't do that. Watch your
Yes, I have a son.
Trust me, if you are getting paid 18 cents per line, you are sticking out like a sore thumb! That immediately puts you under a microscope at some point. I have been in business many years and if you are an exception to the rule, surely you are marked. THIS IS NOT A NEGATIVE POST. You must keep in mind the climate of the healthcare industry right now as a whole, your current CEO and CFO of the hospital - are they new, have they been there long? When does their contract come up for renewal? A change of hands in administration is all it takes to knock out any security you might feel. A change in the Medical Records department could change things quickly also. My advice, if I may? Be creative - work your 18 cents a line to keep the client interested. Offer perks, maybe some % discount for quick payment, or sosmething for loyalty, some type of support added to your services such as cumulative logs of info data per month for their review - not hard to do in Microsoft Office programs. I've been through many, many situations with hospitals. Good for you for getting that much per line. I'm always happy to hear of any one's success and my prayers that you continue as such for a long time.
Watch your mail........
Try some saline spray. A doc one time told me to try this. He did this 'cause he would get so sick with some of the perfume on mailings....those dept store inserts.
I don't usually watch TV, but Christmas

night I saw part of Grey's Anatomy and I loved it.    Can someone fill me in on what is or was going on with the black doctor and the Asian-looking doctor? 

I used to watch ER years ago, then it was Chicago Hope.  ER now isn't what it used to be.  Of course before all these shows there was Emergency.  

Watch those expansions for BM
She had a large, foul-smelling black male overnight with massive bleeding.
Do you watch TV while you work? nm
HBO is the only reason I watch TV..LOL..nm
DH is a HUGE fan! I watch only for him.
Does anyone else still love to watch ER?
I know a lot of people who say they don't like it anymore with Green, Ross and the other oldies gone.  I still think it is just as good.  It is the only show I have watched that new characters just seem to flow in so smoothly.  I watched it from the very beginning and still never miss an episode.
I don't watch it anymore, but...
watched it today and bawled like I did the first time when Dr. Green's father died and then bawled all over again when Carol and Doug were reunited. 
I don't even watch anymore
I used to be a huge Idol fan; however, this season they have lost me. The show is boring and does not keep my attention. I am pulling for Chris to win, even though I don't watch because I live in Greensboro, NC and he is from McLeansville. I went to high school in McLeansville and knew his family. He is a really great guy and I think he is wonderfully talented. I hear updates on the radio and see them on the local news every now and then and that is enough for me. I still think the best season by far was the very first one when Kelly Clarkson won. I am a huge fan of hers and she has been the most successful yet. We shall see what happens with the rest of them.
I don't watch the show, but I saw it on CNN
Sometimes I "watch" TV while I work (sound down). I happened to glance at the TV when they were replaying that clip. That kid's expression was totally awesome... better than Christmas morning!
