GUILTY!!! Im a holy roller but I will definitely be eating too!!!!!
and what he did for all of US
Holy cow! That's, like, a lot of clinics! In only 7 years? Holy Cow!
Legit place...hmmmm. There are a few out there. Whether they have clinic work is another story. I'm sure someone will have suggestions. But, isn't it cool that you'll probably already know the doctors no matter where you go!
You have to clean 3 rollers...sm

or you can do what I did, I waited until the Logitech mouse (originally was about $70) came down in price to about $20 or $24 and bought one.  You never have to clean them inside and you don't need a mousepad.


Oh, one of those high rollers?
dontcha just detest those eye rollers?....nm

In my pink rollers and sky blue jammies

sure and I'm the easter bunny
Orthodox Easter
What a great celebration we have!  Our Easter falls after Western Easter (different calendar).  We take our food to church in a basket and have it blessed, then share and enjoy to break the fast.  The basket contains things that have meaning, i.e. a candle (Christ is the light of the world), eggs (new life), salt (salt of the earth), special bread (breaking bread), kolbassi or ham or both (breaking the fast having not eaten meat for 40 days), cheese (also breaking the fast of dairy product), honey (the sweetness of Christ is Risen),  red beats with horseradish (the bitterness of crucifixion), and various other items depending on what part of Eastern Europe you came from.  It is an incredible celebration. 
Easter recipes sm
It is very difficult for me because my children married different faiths and it used to be that we (before they married) would go to church and then to a restaurant (our favorite) as a special treat for family style soup, salad and main course. Of course, the "new" family had to kill this plan since the other side did not like our Church. Too bad. I started to cook brunch after service which included: Coffee or tea, lots of different juices, bacon, ham (spiral), fried potatoes (home fries), waffles (finally woke up to buying prepared and frozen), lots of syrup, butter, fresh strawberries and blueberries, some favorites of the grandchildren (one liked cantaloupe, another's favorite was my homemade sugar cookies, another liked my peanut butter cookies). I cook for days but it's worth it. Know how I got rewarded? The "other" moms got so jealous, they started to offer "brunch" instead of the traditional dinner (ham and all the trimmings, sit-down style).. I was frustrated at this, but I still try. Why don't people realize that "life is temporary" - whatever works for you. Since someone "stole" my brunch idea, I offer nice foods still, at whatever time their schedule (allows) them to show up; not necessarily breakfast, but some rented "childrens movies" with no pressure. As long as we build it, they will come. However, my brunch was sooooo popular, I'm glad someone "stole" it from me. It's kind of like having MT account "stolen" from you, it's not the same quality, but you have to realize that copying you is a true compliment and you should enjoy it. BTW (by the way) I have a bit of Polish in me, so I thoroughly enjoyed the kielbasa aspect of Easter, I slice it up and cook it first in a little water to get rid of the grease. Then I recook it using currant jelly and slice it, put wooden toothpicks in there and let them munch. Easter should be fun, no matter what religion you are in or out of, "He" would just like you to have fun on His special day, or more especially a family day, never mind what you believe in or choose not to believe in. It's a fun day!!!
Easter dinner
Honey glazed ham, sweet potato soufle, corn, butterbeans, deviled eggs, sweet potato biscuits. Honeybun cake for desert. Yummy~
Passover and/or Easter....*S*....sm
Whichever you celebrate, just want to wish everyone a happy Spring holiday season!!  Passover commences Wednesday 4/12 evening, and Easter Sunday is this upcoming Sunday!!  Enjoy!!! 
Easter Dinner
Hi there...We usually make a smoked ham for dinner with potatoes, carrots and angel biscuits but this year my kids want an Italian Easter. So I guess I'm going to be making lasagna and a side salad with garlic bread. We also make my grandmother's homemade Italian sesame seed cookies, coosidadas and amaretti cookies. Have a great Easter and happy eating!
Hoppy Easter!
Here's hoping a very happy Easter comes hopping your way!
Hmm, so is Easter anti-biblical?
The word "Easter" itself appears nowhere in the bible because its roots have nothing to do with Christianity:

Easter is a time of springtime festivals. In Christian countries Easter is celebrated as the religious holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the son of God. But the celebrations of Easter have many customs and legends that are pagan in origin and have nothing to do with Christianity. Scholars, accepting the derivation proposed by the 8th-century English scholar St. Bede, believe the name Easter is thought to come from the Scandinavian "Ostra" and the Teutonic "Ostern" or "Eastre," both Goddesses of mythology signifying spring and fertility whose festival was celebrated on the day of the vernal equinox. Traditions associated with the festival survive in the Easter rabbit, a symbol of fertility, and in colored easter eggs, originally painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring, and used in Easter-egg rolling contests or given as gifts. The Christian celebration of Easter embodies a number of converging traditions with emphasis on the relation of Easter to the Jewish festival of Passover, or Pesach, from which is derived Pasch, another name used by Europeans for Easter. Passover is an important feast in the Jewish calendar which is celebrated for 8 days and commemorates the flight and freedom of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. The early Christians, many of whom were of Jewish origin, were brought up in the Hebrew tradition and regarded Easter as a new feature of the Passover festival, a commemoration of the advent of the Messiah as foretold by the prophets. (For more information please visit our Passover celebration - Passover on the Net). Easter is observed by the churches of the West on the first Sunday following the full moon that occurs on or following the spring equinox (March 2I). So Easter became a "movable" feast which can occur as early as March 22 or as late as April 25. Christian churches in the East which were closer to the birthplace of the new religion and in which old traditions were strong, observe Easter according to the date of the Passover festival.
What is your idea of Easter dinner?


Easter Dinner What are you making?
For those preparing an Easter dinner, what are you making this year?
My son's birthday is on Easter this year
he will be 8. On Saturday we are going to have his birthday bash at the bowling alley...he is very excited!! On Easter we will be going to my parents house. They just moved into a brand new, three story home. They sold about 13 acres of land in the city limits of Greensboro, NC. That is a hard thing to come by. The developer will be developing 302 townhomes on the property. It will be very strange to see that when it happens. My grandmother lives with my parents 6 months out of the year. The other 6 she lives in Florida. She's home right now because of the move, so she will be making Easter dinner. I don't know what she will make, but I'm sure there will be ham. Her cooking is so good that it doesn't really matter what she makes though!! Since it's my son's birthday, (and my birthday is two days later), it will also be another birthday celebration...so there will be homemade birthday cake! Can't wait!!
Happy Easter Back To Ya.......
Hope you, and everyone here, have a wonderful Easter.

And, thanks to you Busy for recent help you gave to me and solved a problem I had been worrying with for several months.

Thanks for the good wishes, everyone. Happy Easter!
Has anyones account seemed a little slow since Easter?
Just does not seem quite as busy?
HOLY COW..can you believe this?

Man dies after 50 hours of playing computer games.



Holy Cow!
I can't believe that's their top out now. I made 9 cpl when I worked for them back in 2000!
Holy Cow! How do you get that much done?
holy cow

I type ortho all day. So for some reason, just for fun???? I decided to give myself a Phalen's test.  (If you aren't familiar, Google it and you will find tons of info, picutres and instructions) Yow, I did not feel it at first but now I am all tingly in the palm and ulnar nerve distribution in my hand.  Probably not a good thing to do when you still have to type another hour. 

Don't try this at home....or at least when you want good use of your hands. Guess I need to review my ergonomic, or not so ergonomic, positioning of my equipment. 

Holy cow
Can you fight the price with the hospital? Thats insane
Wishing a Happy Easter to the entire board!
We have such gorgeous weather here today, Easter Sunday!

What about where you are?! 



Holy cow, that really does work! sm
I never knew you could do that. Will really save my poor old blind eyes. LOL
Holy cow! Now I don't feel so bad!! nm
HOLY CRAP!!!! Here's what I'd do:
1. Get a hotel room.

Holy Cow! - that was infinitely appropriate!
is this for real? 
Holy cow? Yep, a lot of those in India.
not Holy, just forgiven :) - NM

Definitely one of the other board's people who refer to those on this board as "holy rollers,&
Now go ahead and post your reply - I know you're dyin' to!

Holy cow, wonder what is in that poor cat's water??
Holy Cow Tony....I hope he gets help!!
Where is this job? On this planet of MT? Holy crap!
as Frank Barone would say. 
Holy cow, 11? My brain would explode.
Here's a neat website that's all about productivity:

I have tried WW but they had me eating more than i normally do
I ended up putting on weight instead of losing. I ate strictly their food which is totally expensive. I had another grocery bill aside from my family's. I could not stay with them.

They say if you eat 1300 calories that you will lose even without exercise. Bull. you have to work those calories off if you eat them to lose weight.

Horrible experience. I had lost 20 pounds on my own, but then gained 10 back from WW. I am disgusted with them.
I would be too after eating that! LOL
You would have to do a lot of hat-eating ...
... I believe. What in the world makes you think you have the monopoly on written and spoken English? If it wasn't so sad that you actually really believe that, it would be laughable.
Yes, but, when they are eating something
I often wonder what it is!!! For many years I was disgusted at these lack of manners. Then, for some reason, my rich inner life and imagination kicked in. The other day, a doc may have been eating a sandwich, I wonder what kind? Chips, I want some too! Crunch, crackle, etc. It sounds good. Whatever it is I wanted to know right then what it was and I wondered why I was not asked by the nurse if I wanted take out too LOL. (Partially sarcastic post, but sometimes true, I do get hungry and wonder what tastes so good...)
Doc eating
Okay, I am instantly angry because, not only am I sitting here editing VR which is incompetent, but I have to listen to a know-it-all woman doc chomping salad in my ear.  Poof Im gone.  How rude and inconsiderate can they be? 
I would rather have the eating
and even that gross snot sucking, throat clearing thingy...than to have to listen to 3000 seconds of hold music. They graduated medical school, why can they not figure out the dictation equipment?
I hope you raise holy sand! nm
healthy eating

What are the healthiest fruits and veggies to eat?  I know raw veggies are supposed to be better for you too and that frozen is better than canned.  Any other advice?  Thanks.


It's like my mom used to say about eating vegetables:
Chinese, especially when eating something. nm
Chewing gum/eating

One Russian psychiatrist actually ate an entire apple while dictating, and her accent could hardly be understand to begin with.  We're talking right off the boat.

I particularly like someone eating an item wrapped in paper, because then you get both the chomping and the crackling.

And gum chewers (of which I've had several) who slurp, smack and actually crack the gum into the phone. 

Holy toledo batman can this be true? I couldn't do it

Unless I want to totally ignore my family, housework and total sense of well being!

I only signed on part time because I get at least 4000 lines a week from a local employer.  These are tapes with day sheets and you can pretty much pace yourself if you want to.  No schedule with local.  Sure I might have to work at night sometimes.  It's 8:00 on a Saturday night right now, but I'll have all day tomorrow off.  A WHOLE DAY! I'm finishing up because my kids have gone to the movies.

If I am "required" to do 4000 lines a week on top of my local (and I'm already getting tired of having to have a "scheduled online time" with the national, work available from them or not) I think my hubby and kids will just move out and leave me in my little "hole of an office." :)

I bragged and bragged nearly a year ago about how wonderful it was to work at home, but I'm rethinking.
