feels like a vacation! I feel the same way, just to get away.

Tybee Island, GA? Just a jaunt from Savannah. nm
one picks up at the supermarket? nm
Link to supermarket chains

Includes national and some regional.  Most have a link to websites. 


I met my male friend of 6 years in local supermarket..sm
I was buying a can of salmon for my cats and he was nearby and asked if I made salmon cakes.  We talked, he was asked for my phone number and we have been seeing each other for about 6 years.
Everyone markets their product that way. Like loss-leaders at supermarket.
They get people into their stores by give-away prices on one item and hope you continue shopping at their store. It is a marketing ploy everyone uses.

As far as the GE microwave Walmart ploy, if the buyer doesn't research the market to see if they can get the same GE microwave cheaper, that would be the buyer's problem not Walmart. Stupid is as stupid does and to impulse buy something like a microwave is just plain stupid and/or lazy. Think this through. Been to a sale lately at say Kohls and then saw a full-price outfit you like better than the sale outfit. What do you do? Think Kohls is horrible for doing this? Or smart marketing?

I think anti-Walmart propaganda has too far and people get caught up in it without thinking every other successful retailer uses the same marketing strategy.
should've been good laugh not could laugh
Please don't laugh....sm
Do not use suppositories vaginally......

If you are not vomiting, also, try something oral. If you are, patience I'm afraid is the only answer unless you become dehydrated, at which time you can receive something IM or IV.

But, a definite NO on the suppository question.

Feel better soon!
A little laugh

I told my 18 yo son today about a close family friend and his wife had a baby boy today and that he called me right away to let me know because he was so excited.  My son looked at me and said, "Yeah right mom, really, he had a baby today."  I looked right back at him and said, "Yes son, it takes both people to have the baby, a girl certainly can't get pregnant by herself!" 

This is funny to me because I know my son not sexually active yet (remember I know his girlfriend) and I certainly didn't expect to hear something like that, just reminded me of the little boy my young man still is. 

For a laugh
and to see if any other MTs had times where they didn't want to disturb their beloved pets during a workday and made the same sacrifice. Lighten up. Was just a funny moment, that's all.
great1!!! loved it!! he he he. LOL.
LOL! Thanks for the laugh!
Thanks for the laugh
now there's an innovative use for the BOS and something it is good for! LOL
thanks for the laugh!! nm

All you can do is laugh...if you don't
you'll just go insane!! LOL
Thanks for the laugh!!
I kind of like the story, too!
What a laugh

Don't laugh!
I cut it all off with a steak knife and eat it with a fork! How does one eat corn vertically? Huh?
I have to laugh at this
What you're asking is like Gateway asking Dell, Coca-Coca asking Pepsi or Marriott asking Hilton to hand to them on a silver platter information to get their business off the ground so they can compete with the other.  Rotsa' ruck pal!
Have to Laugh
Rather than be upset, annoyed or anything else I can be for this ESL that sends a 25 minute dictation, with pauses, very strong dialect, and grammar issues ending up to be a 1.5 page report - I had to laugh, when he started giving me the punctuation too - as far as he is concerned this is one long paragraph with commas and semi colons just about every third word. No kidding. Too bad they ask that I clean it up - so many times he want shis work VERBATIM - and he dictates his instructions with force during his tirade.
Just have to laugh.
I so enjoy this board!
Okay, here's a laugh for you (sm)
This is a verbatim account and it would serve them right if I transcribed it the way it was stated.  "Chest x-ray of the right foot is pending."  I don't know how they teach anatomy in his country but it certainly is different from here.
Thanks for the laugh :-) nm

Proofreading and had to laugh. sm

In one of my word programs I noticed I apparently typed does not too fast and it came up as "doe snot."  The spellchecker didn't pick it up.

After I got done laughing about the poor female deer with post nasal drip, I entered a quick correct in my expansions.

That's SO funny. Thanks for the laugh!
Need a good laugh? Here goes...

My friend e-mailed me information on this guy posted on a singles dating site.  Here's the scoop on him:

  •  Hasn't worked in over 2 years but "looking as I've run out of money."

  • Wife died theoretically suddenly in September.

  • He's losing his home next month to foreclosure and is looking to move anywhere he can. 

I reckon' that since he has a pulse he considers himself a good catch, eh ladies?  Sounds like a true moocher to me who is looking for someone with a home that he can move into and probably expect you to pay the bills!   I'll stay single forever as opposed to letting someone like that into my life.  I don't know many people who have a spouse die suddenly that are looking to hook up with another person within 2 months... much less the other red flags!  My friend wasn't serious that I should be interested in him - she just thought that I'd appreciate the fact that at least I'm not THAT desperate to hook up with someone!

gotta laugh
I was actually a triple-D which is an F before I had reduction surgery. So was my daughter who also had the surgery!
Did anyone else laugh when they saw Tatum O on (sm)

Dancing with the Stars?  She was an actress, she said.  She didn't have to compete with others or work to get the acting jobs, thanks to daddy Ryan, LMAO!  Maybe that is why reality TV is becoming so popular.  People would rather watch reality TV than bad acting.  HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Okay, now who is going to defend this woman who had her most embarrassing moment....

thanks for the early a.m. laugh...NM
Thanks for the laugh. Had some doozies...
These Expanders can wreck havoc when not turned off.
I'm offended that you laugh about it

Have you checked into seeing what is required of someone to become a fellow of the AAMT?  It is a lot of work, believe you me.  And, it is not just the education--it's community service, holding offices in the organization, as well as the continuing education part of it. 

I work for a surgeon who is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.  It works basically the same way---they have to prove that they have completed so much continuing education, hold offices in organizations, community-type services, etc.

Basically, just being a "fellow" just means that you've gone above and beyond what an ordinary person in your organization does.  Honestly, I think it is an honor; a matter of distinction, even if it is just AAMT.  It just sets yourself apart from everyone else; says that you are a hard worker.

Thanks for the laugh!! Very funny!

Got to laugh, I'm 5' tall......sm

Been so short, my feet rarely hit the floor in a restaurant, a train, and especially in a plane they do not reach. I never minded being short until I hit my 40s.....and those top kitchen cabinet shelves cause I probably stopped CLIMBING in my 40s.  *LOL*...had my kid(s) climb to get things, but then they moved out...*lol*....so I try not to store things on those top shelves that I need on a regular basis.

Also, not that I'm that overweight cuz I'm not these past 10 years, but I always said I'm not overweight, I'm undertall...*L*

Please tell your b/f that I thank him for being a considerate soul....a rarity in this life, eh?

I pop on there now and then when I want a good laugh. Most of

the videos posted are absolutely ridiculous.

thanks for the laugh - you got the right idea
Cardiology MTs will laugh at this

I found this on YouTube yesterday and wanted to share. It's done by med students and is reall well written and funny. I don't do cardiology, but still got a big kick out of it (and learned some things).

Diagnosis Wenckebach -


Oh so true! Thanx for the laugh NM
now you did make me laugh....sm
because i haven't thought of Bosco since I was a kid - and it's been a pretty long while since I was a kid!!
Agree, but it's either laugh or cry...
Of course I'm not upset with you. It's one of those situations where it's so ludicrous you can't help but laugh at the irony of it all.

It's kind of like if becoming an attorney, someone says "Knowledge of the law is helpful, but not a prerequisite," or if becoming a physician, "Knowledge of anatomy helpful, but not a prerequisite."

I can't even wrap my brain around it. I just baffles me to such a degree that I can't help but laugh at it..."preposterous" is an understatement.
HA. That made me laugh and cry.

I'm German so I guess I am at the bottom of the hiring list. 

Thanks for the laugh!!! That was great! nm
You guys are hilarious. Thanks for the laugh!
PLEASE don't laugh. I'm REALLY sick, and I have a gross
question. I am soooo sick with a stomach bug complete with unrelenting diarrhea.  I have loads of suppositories for same, but every time I use one, well...its a waste, if you know what I mean.  The stupid/gross question - can one use suppositories vaginally? At this point, I'd stick it in my ear if it would help...But I know that won't...I also envision putting it somewhere "else", and having some horrible reaction and then dying of embarassment. I'm sure its just a bug that's going around. Anyone?
Don't laugh, I'm a livestock broker. nm

Gotta laugh to keep from crying!
I have to admit it. I had a good laugh.
There ya go...sometimes ya just gotta laugh at this stuff :) nm
Loved it, great laugh!!!
How unfortunate for him!!!
You know, I had to laugh when a newbie told me

she was going to charge 16 cents per line.  No experience whatsoever. 

Nobody posts there, but we should. A good laugh is
essential for well being.  I've posted there, but it is obvious that nobody bothers to check it out.  So fellow MTs.  Add your stuff to the Comedy Stop and have a good laugh once in a while.
Thanks for the good morning laugh! LOL. nm
I don't know whether to laugh or cry. I just found my 3 year old son after looking for him for ab

10 minutes! I was working and he escaped into the garage from the kitchen. We live on a little farm with 2 big dogs. He doesn't go out alone, so I knew he wasn't out wandering..

I finally find him by going into the garage and the driver door to my Yukon XL is wide open.  I walk up to him putting on my makeup in the mirror! Mary Kay full-coverage liquid makeup all over my leather seat and steering wheel! The mirror was down and lit up, eye shadow on the floorboards!  He turned to look at me and there was mascara all of his lips.  I wish I could take a pic for ya'll.  I was just about to yell at the top of my lungs until I saw those black lips and then I just had to walk away for fear of laughing right in his face

The funny thing is this: I never realized that they would watch me put my make up on in the car like that! He had to go in the security box on the side to get to it in the first place!

I guess he just wants to be like his momma.  Well, his daddy won't be happy about that one.  He's already upset that my little one is enrolled in gymanastics. Oh no!
