That is interesting, I saw her on Larry King

Posted By: gd1 on 2007-06-27
In Reply to: She came a long way on her own talent and drive. SM - Aunt Fannie

and he asked why she started the school there and not to help kids here and her answer was because in this country we had a public school system for the kids to go to.

I would call giving away cars to her audience giving to needy people here, I couldn't even afford tickets to go see her show if I wanted. I have always liked Oprah over the years, but lately I am just disappointed in her.

Larry King tomorrow night 6/29...sm
Star Jones will be on Larry King tomorrow night speaking about her departure from The View......

As Larry the Cable Guy says,
Mrs. King
It just says that she was ready to try some alternative treatments. Actually, many, many people go to Mexico and to South America for treatments that are not available here.

Unlike what some of the posters below say, they are not necessarily crackpot treatments. Most other countries do not tie their medical system up in knots like the USA does - they offer the treatment, tell the patient the risks and let the pt. decide whether to assume the risk.
....king....got cut off :)
No way, have you seen the Burger King guy
He seems kind of creepy to me.  I have developed enough paranoia working at home alone all these years without some guy who thinks he's a real king sneaking up on me in my back yard or trying to push me off a tall building.  No thanks!
Anyone eat chicken a la king?
Chicken a LA King Recipe
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 cups evaporated milk or half-and-half
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
3 cups diced cooked chicken
1/4 cup chopped pimiento

Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Add mushrooms and green pepper; cook for 5 minutes. Blend in flour, salt, and pepper. Continue stirring and cooking until smooth and bubbly. Gradually add milk and chicken broth, stirring constantly. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. If you'd like a thicker sauce, blend 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 1/4 cup cold water; add to sauce, a little at a time, until desired thickness is reached. Cook for a few more minutes. Add chicken and pimiento; heat through. Serve on toast points or pastry shells or rice. Chicken a la King Recipe serves 6 to 8.
Me, too! And Koontz and King. nm
Sounds like the king in ...
The King and I movie. I would just type what she says "etcetera..." and see what happens.
I was at King Fahad... it was terrific
Write me privately at shemah@shemahonline.com. I've got lots of info and tips for you on how to have a REALLY great year or two in Saudi Arabia! :) Don't worry, you can have FUN!
King Cake and let me be the one that gets the baby!
King Faisal Hospital
They have a web site, I just looked at it. They have a listing for an MT.

See http://kfshrcj.org/channels

Interesting. I'll check on Dubai later.
Anyone ever work at King Faisal Hospital

in Riyadh?  I seriously have been thinking about it.  They pay big bucks from what I've heard, no taxes, free housing, air-fare, vacation, medical, etc.  Don't know how safe it is anymore since the war. 

Has anyone actually left MT to work at Burger King?
I am just about ready to throw in the towel.  Just wondering if others have left MT and worked at Burger King or places like that?  Thanks!
King and Prince is wonderful but pricey
Jeckyl Island has more beach than St. Simons and has more to do. St. Simons only has 1 or 2 places to stay on the beach, with K&P being the nicest and ON the beach. If you want the same experience, I would recommend staying on Jeckyl Island as you can always drive over to St. Simons as they are so close. The village on St. Simons is wonderful. Plan a whole day to spend there. Jeckyl has more to do "family style" but you can rent bikes and explore the entire island in a few hours. There are some places with wonderful snap shot opportunities (I have one from Jeckyl Island of a full moon rising over the Atlantic through tree branches as my screen saver). I went in October one year during a hurricane and playing golf on St. Simons was an adventure!! People thought we were crazy to be out there, but we had fun.

Coretta Scott King passed away overnight....sm

While she was in poor health since having her heart attack and stroke a few months ago it's still sad to see a legend pass away.  I'm sure that her kids fighting over whether or not they should try to get the government to buy the King Center and 2 kids stealing money from the center didn't help any.  

May she rest in peace.

What is the Stand about? Gave up King a long time ago.
I just got bored with his stuff. Is this really that good?
Other; Carrie and Doug Heffernan from King of Queens!
those are exceptions to the rule and those are KING-PIN drug dealers, not the middle men who run
the drugs. If you have an EDUCATION and make enough money you don't have to deal drugs. The kids in ghettos running the drugs who are getting busted are doing this because they have no education and nothing else to do to make money. THEM's the proven statistics.

You are talking about apples and oranges. Yeah there is a temporarily rich meth guy living in a nice house but the majority of the rich guys are using punk kids with no education to sell the drugs. They aren't their on the corner in the ghetto dealing their own drugs.
1 cocker, 1 mixed, & 1 cavilier king charles spaniel...nm
Sure could. It was a nickel and a penny. Then they made King Size Cokes that you SM
had to pay a dime for. Cigarettes were 28 cents. You put in a quarter and a nickel (the machine) and you got a pack of cigarettes with two pennies in the cellophane. Ugh. I'm really telling on myself here.
Coretta Scott King died in Mexico, while being treated. ---what does that say about

Exactly. If they're so smart, why are they talking about moonlighting at Burger King?
Getting evicted.

Behind on their bills.

Can't afford Christmas gifts for their kids.

Can't be that smart, people!

Well, isn't this interesting
A job ad on another board caught my eye.  It stated they pay on a 65 character line plus numbers and punctutation.  If they are stating they DO pay for numbers and punctuation, would that not mean that some companies are not paying for those items???  OMG, it just gets worse and worse the way MTSO's are finding new ways to screw the workers.  Gee, no wonder we were told to not spell out numbers any longer. 
I think it's interesting as well....
While MTs often think it's fine for them to throw out every negative they can think of about a company, they tend to freak to think a company might tell the negatives they experienced about the MT. Why is that?  I understand the need for MTs to support each other, it's good for us. Yet surely we arent' so naive as to think every MT is good, skilled, and has a work ethic that should demand the kind of respect they seem to feel entitled to. In my experience, it's not always the company who is at fault, thus I take everything with a grain of salt and make my own judgements.
Yes, she has a very interesting bio
and she seems like she is a genuinely nice person.  Just not a fan.  (feeling a little less contrary now)
Yes, well its interesting the big 3 will be for me...
if I decide go to school, I work in Health Insurance and here a lot of words and I process claims and thought I would try a practice tape of a friend.... thanks for the help
I think it will be interesting to see how many--sm
"big stars" donate millions to the relief effort. Bono and Brad Pitt went to Africa--will they go to our South also??
This is probably similar to what I have heard about, called EMR (electronic medical records). I work for a very large orthopaedic clinic (as my part-time job) and I have been told that they are going to implement this in the next two years, but they expect with all the docs and everything that it will take three to five years to totally run with it. It upsets me because it will eliminate the need for Transcriptionist as well as billers. Apparently this EMR does it all. I'm trying to get my finances in order so that I can go to nursing school because I don't feel secure in the field anymore. I am a single mother and I have over 20 years experience. It's just a shame.
Interesting! I know somebody

a check for around $100.

I thought too it was just for folks who had typed on DQS, but not so!

So, the mystery continues.

Wow, that is interesting. What have your topics been? Maybe the info was too helpful and someone was threatened? Who knows!
so interesting
Your comments are so interesting to me. I have had the same experience with MQ and it has been really difficult. I've gone into debt working for them. What I don't get is why they wouldn't want us to produce. When we produce, they make money. It's a no brainer. What's the deal?
My first husband I met at a work party (I was a paramedic). He was a cop who volunteered part time. My second I met online in a chat room. He messaged and said "I'm looking for a wife" and I told him "well good luck to you" and shut him off. 9 years later here were are! My oldest son met his wife online, and I did a singles ad online for my ex and he met someone and married as well.
I own a service, and the ladies who transcribe for my clients are referred to as subcontractors, not independent contractors (ICs).
If anyone has used this, please share your experience.
I can't wait to be out in the field learning medicine everyday. I am learning now in school, but it isn't the same. I am not good about reading the news mostly because of my lack of time. Transcribing would keep me in the loop much better. I think of Oncology, and I think sadness. You are right it would be interesting to see the new technology that prolongs life.

Interesting ...
I've run across few of us with the same name in this biz.  Nice, I guess, to know there's at least another out there.
That's interesting...sm
I had to have a license when I had an "office" outside of home with employees, etc.,  but not now since working at home.  Been home for 8 years now without one and my accountant says I don't need one.  I know many, many IC's at home none required to have a license.  I'm certainly not arguing with you, just think that is strange.
That is quite interesting, but
I have always considered myself a pretty good judge of character. For instance, the first time I saw Mr. Mason I said that he had nothing to do with the disappearance of his fiancee, who later came to be known as "The Runaway Bride".

Anyway, I really feel that in the case of Patsy Ramsey she is innocent. (I think too that her battle with ovarian cancer began before the murder took place . . . can't remember for sure.)

Another thing, I see the photos of Van der Sloot and the Kalpos, and I can just see the horns, tails, and pitchforks as though they were part of the picture . . . I'll be surprised if it is found that they had nothing to do with the disappearance of Natalie, but no matter what I feel certain that they are up to no good.

To see these responses.  I have been in 25 years and I think it's getting steadily worse.  I was single and divorced for 9 years prior, and I think those must have been "the good years"!  Maybe not as much $, but a LOT less stress!  At my age, I don't need it!

I did go to your link and found out it is KForce.  I looked at their jobs and they do have positions for traveling transcriptionists (also for traveling coders).  It looks like the MTs are needed in Pittsburgh and somewhere in Oregon.  Also looks like the pay is $20/hour. 

That would be fun to do.

But don't you think a hospital would send out work to a service rather than have a temp come in to do their work?

That would be interesting to know -
Very interesting
Now I see why so many errors in reports. Some of you are tuned to the tube instead of paying attention. Yeh, Im talking about you, I know who ya are.
I am probably going to get bashed for this, but I have to say it is interesting how this thread has just totally spiraled and how it keeps going around and around with basically how hard this and that job is, and how great this or that job is, and how great this or that education is.

My experience with has been this... When I was a CNA, some of the LPNs at the nursing home would never miss a chance to gloat about how superior they were because they were LPNs and we were "just" CNAs. When I was an LPN at my first hospital job, there were those RNs who could never miss a chance to gloat at how superior they were because we were "just" LPNs. As an LPN I then worked at a medical equipment company and primarily dealt with insurance submissions, the enteral feeding line and incontinence line. At that job, I was viewed as lower on the totem pole by some because I didn't have maybe as glamorous job as someone who did marketing for wheelchairs or something like that. Now that I am doing transcription, I run into the you are "just" a typist.

I have to say that if I waited for everyone in the world to think that my job was important to feel satisfied doing it, well... it could be a long wait. I know that in each job I have had that I am making a difference to someone somewhere by doing my small part, and knowing that I am doing a good job is my own satisfaction in itself.

This whole situation reminds me of that Dr. Seuss book/movie about the star-bellied sneeches... any moms out there know what I am talking about?
