Milk chocolate chips, sometimes toasted pecans, and varies between Grand Marnier or sometimes Amaretto in them!

Oooooooooo!!!! Large cookies, and fresh baked with a glass of super cold milk!

Now my mouth is watering! LOL

Chocolate Chip Cookie Craving!
Serving size: 1 cookie
120 calories
Chocolate with a chocolate ganache frosting and some extra whipped cream. nm
Just about anything CHOCOLATE. German chocolate, Texas sheet cake, etc. YUM YUM ;-) nm

Is that like, hmm the chip?
Not the crispiest chip in the bag.
When I was little I thought it was a giant golden potato chip- sm
we even called it that every year...don't remember how that got started though, funny now.
Why are you asking? I am about to jump ship here too
A post today was taken off twice for no reason really. They blanked out places just because I was asking about what company now did so and so work. I worked for the hospital before and wanted to hook up again. They are being overboard on these matters.
Tell that to the cruise ship industry.
I didn't have to pay to ship the computer.
I had no problems with the people I worked with. The work was easy, and I always had very high QA scores. I left because the work kept running out and they don't pay much at all, although hardly anyone does. If you get an offer, look at the benefits before you decide. Personally, I'm done with nationals, but Amphion is probably not any worse than the rest of them.
40k here as employee, but ship sunk
I just jumped ship from a large national after my account converted to SR. I had made 41K the previous year, and that with very little overtime. I knew that with the conversion to SR my income would drop drastically, so I left for another company. It will take me a bit to build back up to the 40K+ level, but I know I will. The name of the game for me is expanders!
Unionization WILL NOT ship jobs

If American MTs were to unionize today..jobs would not magically clear up and go overseas.  Why??  Because if Cbay, MedQ and other large MTSO do not need the threat of a union to ship jobs overseas...if they had the manpower set up (as they are busily trying to do....training the little Indian people as quick as they can to decipher american medical language...most likely very poorly)....then these jobs would be gone now...  We do not have jobs because we are not unionized.  we havwe jobs because at this point in time..India, Philippines and any other third world country they can set up their server is not able to handle all of US transcription. 

If we were able to form a union....the first order of business would be severely limit the amount of transcriptinon that goes overseas...as well as provide informed consent to the docs, hospitals, and clinics that their dictation is going overseas...  Also..I would demand to see examples of transcription provided by these third world countries.  I would also demand ASR is paid NO LESS than 20% of an MT Line rate and I would ensure cost of living raises just like every other industry.  I also would dismantle the worthless AAMT as their only purpose is to sell exhibit space to MTSO.  They have historically servied the MTSO...NOT the individual transcriptionist...

Transcription... sinking ship?
Is it just me or does it seem like every hospital everywhere is outsourcing their transcription???  Has anybody in the transcription field changed careers or have thought about changing careers???  I am thinking about going to college for x-ray tech if my hospital gets outsourced.  I was going to go to another hospital, but I am scared of being outsourced yet once again.  Can I get you guys thoughts on this???  Is anybody else feeling down and out about this field for a career???  I hate I am having these dreary thoughts, but it is just disheartening to me to see how this is affecting alot of people.
Staying on board a sinking ship
I worked at a different company in an unrelated field where all the employees were required (not requested) to take a 15% pay cut and receive stock options in return.  I left.  Others chose to stay with the company and told me I was crazy to leave; I would "never" earn as much money elsewhere.  I thought they were crazy to stay and said so.  The older employees said they had to stay or lose their pension.  Well, the company went under anyway, the stock was (of course) worthless, and the pension fund had long since been looted by the major shareholders.  Staying on board a sinking ship of a job may be more comfortable but not in your overall best economic interests.
Staying on board a sinking ship..maybe
I forgot to add that if you are making top pay at that company and the 1 cent per line pay cut is still better than you would earn elsewhere, it may well be in your best interests to stay on board that ship patching and bailing (grin) but still being mindful that the ship may go under suddenly.
Might also be a good idea to ship the equipment
That's hilarious, hiring bonus. Everyone jumping ship?
Jan, it has been great exchanging information with you - thanks and I hope your ship comes in soon
Cruised Mediterrean in 60 passage cruise ship
South of France, great food, great wine, wonderful shopping, ancient ruins, Michaleangelo, so much more. Well worth 10 grand.
Mom-CMT..when you get those cookies done
how bout sharing them around here LOL...heck at this point, I'll take the ones that don't have any shape.  Sounds good!
Thanks for the info. Will try the chilling, as I am not at a high altitude. Sure would like to make some pretty sugar cookies and gingerbread men!
You take cookies?????

Gee, does your doctor bake you cookies when you make an appointment with him?  What about your attorney, your accountant, your plumber, and your carpenter?

Baking cookies, to me, is so totally unprofessional.  I would NEVER do that.  It's almost comical, as a matter of fact.

My cookies do not keep my accounts for me

Gee thanks a lot, guess it is my cookies that do my 35,000  to 40,000 lines per month for my accounts.  All I do is that if they respond to my brochure, express interest or talk with me I swing by with a plate of cookies to say "thank you" or if it is an account I really would like I swing by with a plate of cookies with a brochure and more times than not at least the brochure will make it to the manager's desk.  It is the same as giving out pens with your business name on it.  Again I stress, if I did not do a decent job I could not have stayed in this business as a MTSO for 18 years, support myself, own a home and have a half way personal retirement fund set up.   Guess I will put on my tombstone, "I owe my success to my cookies".  And really my flyer is a brochure. 



I received cookies
I received cookies from an MT company I know longer work for and of course nothing from the ones I do work for!!
Not sure what you are looking for. Deleting cookies
should take about 30 seconds. 
Did you clear your cookies? nm

cleared the cookies
call me when the cookies are ready
and pour me some warm milk!
She wasn't asking how to delete cookies, she was going
to be instructing people on how to do it. 
Cookies! Uhm, well, now I do have some cookie dough in the fridge!
Perhaps I should dollop a few out and bake'em and eat'em while they are hot with some cold milk before bed?!?! Then, I can fall asleep as my blood sugar plummets to new lows! ROFL

No, don't read those posts. It's irritating! Who wants to be irritated?! NOT ME!! LOL
Be sure to keep the temp files and cookies cleaned
defrag often.
Just got back from a booth sale for GS Cookies - sm
been doing that for the last 3 Saturdays....working some now....will do the rest tomorrown. Have an easy weekend as I only took on about 40 minutes of dictation and my own acct. did not upload any work Friday though I will pay for that on Monday. Plan to clean out my older daughter's closet tomorrow and organize their close (i.e. remove all the stuff too small from one kid and give to the other while removing some of hers as well)...very time consuming and desperately needs doing.
My daughter's Brownie Troop is sending GS Cookies - sm
A few people in the troop know people in Iraq and the soldiers they know said they don't care if any melt.....of course we are not sending all mints, or all chocolate ones but a mixture. Needless to say I am sure they will all be gone in 10 minutes!
Homemade cookies? A nice potted plant?
What do they like? Do they have a hobby, or collect anything?
deleting cookies-go to TOOLS, internet options

Once you get to internet options from TOOLS at the top of your browser, you have a radio button to delete cookies, one to delete history, one to delete online files and then offline files - that is how you delete the cookies AND the cache/memory/history.

Is that what you need to know?  Hope that helped!! 

Now I cant see the different broads again. Everytime I clean out my cookies and offline files I cant
get in the different boards. Any suggestions. They are gone again.
BBQ chicken, baked beans and garlic toast with M&M cookies for dessert! nm
Does anyone send Christmas cookies or presents TO your office, if you are a remote employee? sm
Just wondering if that's a weird thing to do or not.
chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate

I like to have flavored coffee in the afternoon - German Chocolate Cake coffee from Barnie's is good and no cals (well maybe literally 5!). Otherwise, brush your teeth :)
I won Chocolate too and it was such a fun wk
bribe myself with chocolate
I set my goal of 30 minutes, 200 lines, whatever, and once I meet my goal I get to eat a piece of candy that I keep sitting below my monitor as motivation. Reese's peanut butter cups and Dove chocolate are my fave!
chocolate fountain
I saw one of these at the opening of a store and the person that owned the fountain, stayed and attended to it. I didn't see how it was set up or taken down. It was a really neat thing and the fresh fruits and other accompaniments were yummy.
Chocolate cravings...
I find it more tempting working at home to eat junk -esp. when I get bored transcribing. SO, I just don't keep it in the house cause if it's here, I'll probably sooner or later eat some! LOL...Unfortunately, my husband (who is trim, dang him!) always has a bag or two of mini candy bars in the fridge. I just put them to the back where I can't see them. Or, I will buy the Slim-Fast snack bars, which are QUITE good! Only about 120 calories each, which is better than 280 for a candy bar. Hope that helps!
I won chocolate this year! Thank you again.
chocolate and lots of it! nm
I love the RS chocolate pecan ones especially! (nm)

And dunk the extra into chocolate!

 I am changing the meaning of this emoticon. She is melting chocolate!

Thanks for reminding me I have bananas in my freezer, lol.  Maybe I'll make some banana bread today too.

Chocolate-covered strawberries.....Yum Yum!!!
Me, too, but it's the dark chocolate. I get up and do something else, have a few bites, and then
Chocolate banana milkshakes. sm
Nephrology doc had me on these twice a day when my protein and electrolytes were low.  Ice cream, 1 banana and milk, add chocolate, whip it up in the blender. I even used to throw my multivitamin in there for good measure.  Tasted so good I got addicted to them.  LOL-it was a great chocolate fix. I think you could add some peanut butter in there, too, for a different twist and it has plenty of protein. 
I'll take anything that's dark chocolate, thanks! :) nm
