I would let DD go with Habitat for Humanity or a church mission, but not that wild party stuff.

There is a church in Gonzales that is a small church but housing evacuees.

Helping a small church could be the best way to help someone.


Their web page says they need everything from personal items to clothing and bedding to food and water, don't forget first aid supplies.  They said you could send money but there's nothing there to buy anyway.

The address is:

Gonzales Church of Christ

1225 South Purpura

Gonzales, LA  70737

Bigger churches have more people, it's the small churches that need outside help and don't qualify for Red Cross or anyone else to help but people like us.

I'm on a keyboard mission myself....sm
Right now I'm looking at the Logitech Wave, Microsoft Curve Comfort, Ergoflex, and believe it or not I have a bid in for a 1995 Vintage IBM typewriter because I love the clicky keys. I hate the split keyboards like the Microsoft Elite. I've tried the Kineses Contour and never could get used to it.

E-bay has tons of keyboards. I wish I could get my hands on an IBM M15 model split keyboard, but they quit making them and you can't find them anywhere.

Good luck on your quest and let me know what you decide!
Any MT in it for recognition and helping humanity only?
In transcription for recognition and helping humanity?
Ummm no. Money.
IMHO, helping humanity is along the lines of teaching, volunteering, nursing, working with
Go to church.
Go to church

I do and have - but our church is small, almost all elderly people attend, and I don't seem to have much in common with the people who go there - age difference is probably the case.  Thanks for the suggestion though!!


Try a different church.
wild life
Lets just leave the wild life alone, ya know?  *Man* has screwed enough up on this beautiful earth..Leave the wild life alone.
This is a wild guess
Do you think he means the children's cartoon character "Pokemon"? Maybe the patient thinks they're real, or maybe it's how he describes his family.
Are they getting married in a church?
Do you have a preacher or someone he could speak with at your church? I will pray for you. I am so sorry you are going through this. What a mess. She'll be his "first divorce" as they say.
church sermons

Many churches tape their sermons for transcription and then they are posted on several web locations.   Especially Lutheran Churches part of the Missouri Society.

I have filled the position, and regardless of the errors in my ad I received numerous resumes, well over 200 for just 2 positions.  I appreciate all of the interest. 

I also appreciate the remarks regarding the errors in my ad.  I am sure those who were greatly upset by them did not apply.  I will refrain from making comments on the errors in resumes I received.  Being as small as I am, again, I appreciate having a location to find those individuals willing to take on a small portion to help me out. ( A dollar here, a dollar there adds up)

I wish you all good luck.

church sermon
I used to do denominational transcription "eons" ago. It is very interesting. Try churches... I am very sure there's people that could do it.
I give at my church
and other local places but I can only contribute so much.
Wild stab
Assuming this is another MD who is reading a radiology report, I would expect he would say something along the lines of:

"Reviewing the CT scan, the current report demonstrates no free air or fluid, but the comment is really unchanged from previous CT scan."

That is just one possibility. Maybe if you are able to listen again, something will jump out at you.
separation of church and state

was not the design of the forefathers. The origin was with Thomas Jefferson, when a minister asked that his denomination (don't remember which one) be considered THE religion of the country. Jefferson said he would not give preference to one religion over another. That's how the entire separation of church and state later came to be interpreted.

But despite the "evolution" of things, it's still an excellent idea. I feel that all religion in any way, shape, and form needs to be kept out of the public school system, and that includes closing the school for what are viewed as religious holidays (i.e. Good Friday).

While we're on the subject of church...
He is wanting to try counseling through church. I'm not sure how long to give this. Can you put a time limit on something like this??
Join a church? Seriously. I have a mom's group through the sm
church where we get together for lunch once a week amongst many other activities within our church. Fairly large church. Couldn't survive without it.
no wonder church attendance was down - all the jerks were
remember when they used to have a wild card?
If you could bring somebody back with a wild card, who would it be?  I'd bring back Chris. 
anyone ever transcribe a church sermon?
how do I decide what to charge to do this?  Flat rate? Per tape rate? per page? i don't think per line is a good way to go...
I second that, Wild Blue works well (sm)
for me. Tried Hughes a few years back and it was awful but maybe they are improved now. Have had Wildblue for 2 years and it works pretty good.
Possibly Wild Blue?....sm
I don't live in Oregon, but am in rural western Washington. I know a few MTs who use Wild Blue and are happy with it, so that would be my only suggestion.

I did want to say that I have been using satellite for about three years now (a small local company), have been on no less than 4 different MT platforms, and never had any problems. Yes, satellite can be susceptible to extreme weather...but if you're in a rural area you're about as likely to have your power go out anyway in extreme weather!
Best of luck.
Wild guess, but might get you closer

1.  of any murmurs.

2.  funduscopic exam

3.  Eyegrounds??

Pretty wild, I have not had really anything happen since my mom died 09/26/04 except how Jen became
diagnosed with her Wilms tumor.  The day prior to it she'd had her normal checkup and the doctor totally missed the tumor (hard to since it was huge, 15 x 11 x 5 cm...was not protruding though unless she was flat on her back and naked and then only a tiny bit), but felt if you palpated the abdomen. (Dr. cut my daughter's ear while trying to clean wax but failed to mention it to her what he was trying to do, messed up the rest of the exam since she was crying and freaked out from it)  The very next day after her check up though, she fell off the kiddie see-saw (18" fall).....my husband likes to think my mom pushed her off, which subsquently caused a blood vessel on the tumor to burst, which made her pee blood, which got me to get her to the doctor's, who proto found her tumor.  Had she not been diagnosed then, in the next week or so the tumor would have probably burst or spread or somehow not have been encapsulated anymore and things would have been a lot worse. So my mom helped her get treatment a lot earlier than she otherwise would have probably.  I thinks it's nice to think about it this way.
Wild Blue satellite internet

Anybody currently using Wild Blue satellite internet?  Any responses good or bad would be greatly appreciated.

Where does it state in her post that she and her kids don't go to church?
Our church sends care packages....sm
Some of the things we send are:

Pretzels, chips like Pringles in a hard can, peppermint or hard candy, beef jerky, cheese crackers (the kind with cheese or peanut butter in them), the canisters of Oreos, Cheezits, etc.

If they have kitchen facilities or a microwave available to them: microwave popcorn, Ramen noodles in a cup, Cup of soup.

We also send word-search puzzle books, crossword puzzles, and perhaps some magazines that they might be interested in.

Hope this helps. :)
Well, that's all folks. All gifts have been given. It's been a wild ride
They are from the Westeboro Baptist Church in Topeka


This above link goes to an update on Fox News about the group.  They say they won't go to the funerals if given air time to "espouse Westboro's beliefs." 

This quote is from the daughter of the "church's" pastor:  "Those Amish people, everyone is sitting around talking about those poor little girls blah, blah, blah they brought the wrath upon themselves," Phelps-Roper said, adding that the Amish "don't serve God, they serve themselves."

What an unbelievable world we live in.


Does anyone have any experience with church sermon transcription?
I've done a Google search and can't seem to find many ways to connect with companies or individuals seeking church sermon transcriptionists? If you have any information about this at all, please send me an email or respond on this board.

Thank you so much.
Here is a great site and you can wild search
too if you can understand a portion of the name.


I also use WIld Blue and have no problems. Both my jobs are FTP, though.
My computer has gremlins! My mouse has gone wild. sm
Last night when I put my mouse over the "Start" button to shut down, it suddenly went crazy.  It began moving all over the desktop, things started popping up, it was like a wild animal!  I thought it was just a dirty mouse and cleaned it.  When I booted up this morning, the same thing happened.  Then it settled down, and it's working fine.  Now I'm not sure if it's the mouse or the computer.  I'm the same person who had the "wavy" screen yesterday.  Has anyone ever had this happen?  I'm getting paranoid, thinking maybe I have picked up some strange bug on the net.  Any advice appreciated.  Thanks so much for all the help.
not sure about you, but we have several wild animal care and education centers...
The best way to start is to volunteer.

We have like Messinger Woods and Hawk Creek around here, like animal sanctuaries, where they have owls, eagles, deer, all sort of animals they need to take care of. You can always visit one and ask questions. I would love that, too, only I can not get my boyfriend interested. I would love to even volunteer.

Sounds funny, but what about a zoo...same thing, you can volunteer at first, see if you like it, and I believe those positions offer decent pay...?
Only during the summer. Wild colored toe socks in winter.
Pizza or grilled cheese...church tonight for me.
Isn't that wild?!! At least a few people will be needed as MTs/editors in the years to come. nm
This is a wonderful suggestion. The church I used to attend when I lived in KY
did this and I never got around to ordering.  Of course that was five years ago and the world wasn't in the economic crisis it is in now, so I never really thought about it.  I just now got the angel food website and found that a church in my small rural town participates and I'm definitely going to start ordering!
Entertain them? Chores? Church on Sunday? You women are a joke!
How you are reading that into my statements is really a hoot! Please tell me you don't have children! My, we are all on the defense over this - how many of you have no relationship with your kids? Soooooooo sad!!
Yes, call your local vet, any vet, and ask for the wild rabbit rescuer in your area.
There is always someone nearly everywhere. If you can't find one, please write me and I'll search for someone for you if you're short on time.  They are so worth saving.  Mom might still be around. Let's hope so! 
Woops, meant to say the jeans and t-shirt are fine for CHURCH...
Dilemma! Tomorrow is picture day and my 5 yo just went wild w/a jug of blue food coloring --


both hands and the entire lower half of his face are now bright, royal blue.. Will this wash off by morning???

Saute the innards with other veggies, wild rice, sun dried toms. then
Wild guess-borrow a wireless?? Go to an open wirless and work from the car if you have to?
Where there's a will there's a way - keep asking and keep talking, someone will help you. Ask the company you work for to help you out here, perhaps they have a plan for you if they value your association.
Ours is in the regular food store with the brown, wild, and short grain rices, etc. nm
My kids play in a church basketball league and I am going to watch their games today.
I am going to whip up a fabulous dinner (have no idea what though) and watch a movie later tonight with the family. Church tomorrow!

Would love to make time for an eyebrow wax and pedicure in there somewhere just to spoil myself a little bit - probably not going to happen though!
I'd ask the local authorities to tell the MTSO to stop sending THEM on a wild goose chase! NM
I think I smell either VR on the easy stuff, or offshoring of the easy stuff.
Do you have an I-party near you? OR....SM
try the web for homemade costume ideas.   A cute one I've always wanted to do was to hang cereal boxes all over the body with fake rubber knives sticking out of each onewith fake blood and go as a CEREAL KILLER.
