    GREAT GREAT SHOW! I still think Ellen Pompeo
    should have gotten the Emmy/Golden Globe whatever it was for the show. I like Sandra Ho, her character just needs more depth... Next week looks AWESOME!! Maybe there is still a chance for McDreamy!! First season DVD coming out with deleted scenes! Can't wait to get it & watch it!!
    Yes! Rob Thomas, another great Canadian singer - sm
    - REALLY a man, unlike KD Lang LOL
    She's tiny, cute, rich, famous, drug free, and a great singer.
    Oh, what a horrible person!  (sarcasm)
    John T is a great disappointment to me. He is bloated and looks like he is about to pop with skin s
    A poster below said John T looks like he swallowed the original lean and mean handsome John from Urban Cowboy days. I agree. But it could be worse. He could be bald I guess. Back in the day I could watch his movies over and over especially Saturday Night Fever and Urban Cowboy. Now it's just sad. He seems a characture of his former self. Kind of on his way to Marlon Brando state of aging.
    Great show!

    Jerry Rice is good but cannot match Drew.  What's up with the gangsta rapper?  He should have gone first. He doesn't really care.  I think he should have gone first.

    Rock on Drew.

    Oh yes. This show is great.
    I love Cesar.  He trips me out w/ all that dog stuff.  I even attempted some w/ our dog, though it didn't turn out to well, but then again Cesar was not here to show me correctly.  It is a good show.
    It's a great show.. to the posters below who don't like it...
    I always have trouble going into a show if I haven't seen it from the beginning. I  sometimes wonder what all the hoopla is about on a show when I try to watch mid-season.This really is a great show, but the drama is overwhelming at times.
    That was a great show! Thanks for the post!
    I missed about 20 minutes of it, but recorded the rest. Fascinating look at the other side of things. I have always known that the Indian (whatever 3rd world country) workers themselves were not our enemies - its the govts as usual creating all this situation. And now their culture is crumbling and turning into our culture. Poor things! And, while I certainly don't want to lose my job to offshoring, they are right that we as Americans can rebuild our lives and reinvent ourselves. Those people die. They are desperate and that's why I give them 100% respect and anticipate them making leaps and bounds in the industry. They have a great incentive - pure survival. I have also QA'd lots of foreign work. There are occasional bad MTs, but there are some fantastic MTs as well. Sometimes far superior to the quality of USA MTs. So, I'll be looking over my shoulder for sure and keeping my skills current!
    I saw a great show on public TV the other day with (sm)
    Suze Orman about women & their money. One thing she couldn't emphasize enough (and which I totally agree, even if I don't always agree with her), is, "Ladies, you are NOT ON SALE." Selling ourselves short is the biggest mistake most of us (women) make in our lives. Anyone who accepts less pay tomorrow for work done just as competently as yesterday is putting themselves and their services ON SALE. Don't accept this back-stabbing offer. Find something else - this company obviously has only its own profits at heart, and could care less about its workers, the quality of its product, or the future of MT in general.
    Drop dead.
    Rosie's old daytime show was great.
    Have seen them twice (Las Vegas and L.A.). They put on great stage show. Tickets were under $100.
    Great opportunity now. Work full time, show
    saw a great show the other night where they separated with fabric strips that had been tie-died

    using golf balls.  I think this would look great and also be pretty see through so that your son felt like he had his own space but you would still be able to see what he was doing.  With a three-year old, I guess you would use a permanent mount curtain rod so that he couldn't keep pulling it down.  Good luck!

    OT: Girl singer on the July 4th shows - did anyone catch this show on the Fourth?

    I'm trying to find the name of one of the performers on the evening of the Fourth who sang God Bless the Child (I think it was on the show where the President attended).  Does anyone know who that singer was?  I missed the first half of her song and they did not announce her name again at the end.  I thought it might have been Brandy but I haven't kept up with celebs lately. 

    Thanks in advance.

    Great post. I swear by both Advantage and Frontline Plus-- both work great! - sm
    I don't know about "natural" approaches for the house. I have always used flea bombs in the past before the miracle of Advantage and Frontline changed my life. Have not had a flea problem at all since I began using those products about 10 years ago, dose all the dogs religiously once a month with the Frontline Plus except in Dec.-Feb. to save a few bucks and because the ground is generally frozen by then and no fleas are scurring about. -- Hope you get flea free soon.
    Thanks to all. Got some great feedback and ecouragement. This board is great.
    My rant passed, ate a late lunch, now back to the trenches.
    It is a GREAT company and great deal! I've had
    Vonage about 6 months now and I love it. The only mistake I made was trying to keep my original phone # - I wouldn't recommend that. You have a temp # for a while, and the other provider can fight for the old #, etc. Go to vonage. com. They have new features all the time! There is even a new soft phone that is a phone on your screen. You don't need a real phone when working - just headset. It has 800 #s you can have very inexpensively - great voice mail. You get emails when you have new messages, etc. I only wish I had used them a year ago! Nothing but good things to say, and I complain about everything!
    Sounds like he will do great then. Again, best wishes for great success!
    That's great Patti. Thanks. Have a great time at the beach.
    You should feel great as a transcriptionist if they think your work is that great!!!
    It is not your fault they approached you. I think it would be a different storey if you were the one searching for the job to take away from a company. They obviously want to get rid of the company and if you didn't take the job they would probably ask someone else. You should enjoy the better position and not feel guilty!!
    Great post -great job of wording your answer! (sm)
    Original poster - I completely agree with this answer, especially the part about finding yourself and using all that you have learned intellectually and connecting that to something that you will also enjoy with your heart!! You have so many wonderful options for your future - much more than many of us.
    IT - great program, great support system. nm
    Thanks for all the great advice! You guys are great!
    Great job
    Hi, I'm interested in finding somewhere flexibile also as I have a little one at home.  I'm interested in radiology only.  If the place you work for has openings in this specialty could you let me know??  Thanks!
    That's great!
    I think sometimes people think you are trying to "replace" the dog that died. It's not replace at all, it just helps fill the void. Just like you can never replace a person, you can't replace a pet. They each have their own special place in your heart. Adjustment period - I KNOW!! But it works out. Good luck with your new baby.
    great - thanks for this
    I've been looking for something like this.  Now I have it.
    Wow--that's great! Thank you so much
    for info
    That's great! I like that! Put that right at the
    edge of town so noone can hear us scream!
    Being an MT is great. Though like with
    any job there are going to be issues. If you work in an office, you have to put up with all the crap that goes with it. If you work at home, you don't have to read these boards. There are a lot of negative people in the world, mostly on here! You will have bad days but overall the good will outweigh the bad. I have been an MT for 15 years, 11 of which I have been at home. I have tried going back to an office setting, several times, but have never been happy. I come back home to work and things are fine for a while until the job starts to suck but I get over it. I have children but they go to preschool/school. They do not stay home with me unless they are sick, have a snow day or a short school break. During the summer, they attend camps and preschool. This is not a job to get into to stay home with children. It is a career as an MT, not a daycare provider.

    I'd say go for it. You will get out of it what you put into it, like everything else in life! Good luck to you.
    I am glad to hear that it worked out -- an IC MT's worst nightmare (I have always had that fear). And extra pay to boot!
    Sorry, but not my man. I have a great
    husband. We have been married for 23 years. I know he doesn't cheat because he is home every day right after work, calls if he is going to be late, never goes to bars and works his butt off for our family. I'm not saying there haven't been issues but the good in him far outweighs the bad!

    You might try giving it another shot. Not all men are scum!
    You all are great!
    Good for you.  Now you need to set your sister straight.  I would be so mad at my sister if she did that..I just dont know if I could ever talk to her again, at least not for a long while till she *grew up*.  So happy it turned out right for you.
    Great help, thanks
    great pay
    Sounds like the hospital I worked for in Florida. We made 18.00 an hour plus 8 cents per line over so many per day which gave us a bonus of around 1500.00 monthly. Those were the days!
    Great TL
    I must say, my TL is a gem. Of course, everyone else in management bites the  big one but my TL is fair and honest.  She has to walk a thin line between keeping her team members happy and letting management think she is totally one of them, but she manages to pull it off.
    That is so great to know...thanks! nm
    Pay is great.

    Don't know about others, but just today in two hours I've made $200 - of course THE best dictator is working today so that is not the norm - but my account pays quite well (per report). I started doing radiology when I worked in a hospital - they "made" everyone do it, so thats how I got my start. When Medquist hired me 8 years ago they automatically put me on radiology - initially I didn't want to for some reason - but now I'm glad I did! Don't look for voice rec takeover just yet - radiology is THE most important department most places and they are VERY picky about stuff - I'd say we radiology MT's still have many good years ahead (but then I could be totally fooled and cryin' the blues in a year or two).

    Now its back to the fray - still have 6 hrs. to go and hoping "Dr. Wonderful" stays on the entire rest of my shift!

    that was great! nm

    Thanks so much!!:) Great to be here:)
    This was great!
    MDI is great
    I think MDI is a great company to work for. There is always work to be done, always other accounts to work on if I run out or the account is slow (which is not too often). I was a team leader at one time, but I got caught on a tough account that expected the impossible. Things have improved with the account and I would be willing to try it again. While I was TL, I was always available for the team 24/7. If you have a problem with getting in touch with your TL, call Deb or even Liz (as she is always stating on this board). There is no sense in you not being happy with your job. I really could not ask for a better company!
    I use theirs and it is great.
    Extremely easy to use and to add to.
    Wow-Great job! Thanks. nm
    Sam-e is really great!!nm
    I am KY also! Great to have another around.

    Oh Great....

     And you'll remember to say "They spend a lot of $$$$ in our country," when you lose your job to one of them, won't you?  That thought is BOUND to bring you lots of comfort as you watch your checkbook dwindle down to nothing and your family do without.

    WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Great Help
    They will answer any question you have regarding Microsoft Word. It's a computer support forum. They seem to respond pretty quick, too!

    This is a Great help, thank you!!
    Unfortunately, we are just starting and are even the trial group for the entire start-up. I am so nervous as all my bills have gone up, and I am barely making a living to begin with. It all happened with no fore-warning, either. Just, oh, in two days this will be what it is, period. Great company, so far, and I understand they are trying to help us keep our jobs in the long-run, but very bad timing after the holidays, etc.

    Thanks so much for giving me a good example.

    Also, do you have different classification of pay, like if you are transcribing most of the report, do you get the pay for MT, and are these called editing positions? Shouldn't the job classification change somewhere?

    Thanks, again!
    if they are so great...
    why are they constantly, constantly advertising for MTs and QA people.  Gotta wonder!
