that Seattle played GREAT....but....sm

In the end of the game, when the interviews were happening over the dais/podium......even the SeaHawks said that *Pittsburgh won it and that they deserved it*...

like I said - Seattle played the better game, but Pitts always gets down and gritty toward the end and is why they have won 5 SuperBowls.

Seattle is a great, young team and I wish them well and love Tim Hasselback (who screwed up last night to all those who missed it).  Maybe better luck NEXT year.

Now all you sour grapes posters, put on your big boy or big girl panties and DEAL WITH IT.

Sleeper teams

Drove team with my husband for a while, we lost our shirts, no money.  Also they are getting stricter with driving hours, sleep hours, etc. especially with sleeper team.  You have to be in the sleeper all the time when you are supposed to be sleeping.   You will not be getting any internet access driving cross country and moving constantly.  Also since many of the trucks are equiped with what they have, they don't allow you to put anything extra on.   So good luck, but I don't see how you will drive and work also.   Do you have a CDL already?   Lots of time when you are sitting for loads (up to eight hours) there was no signal available for anything that we could receive via TV, cell phone, etc.    So you sit and do nothing waiting for the truck to load. 


There are a lot of hubs-n-wives teams out here that own their own services, too. They seem to
Again, there are professional American search teams in Aruba.
Nobody knows the terrain of the island better than the native Arubans.  Together with advice from the FBI, the search team from Texas and the hundreds of Arubans who do know the island they are doing what they can do.  They do not need the hysterical rants and accusations from Mrs. Twitty

Sick in Seattle...


I am visiting Seattle closer to Renton.  My blood pressures have been 200s over 120s and pounding unbearable headaches with any little exertion for 4 days now, even getting into the shower causes a headache from mars..  I hate to put a damper on the vacation here but I think I need to go to an ER somewhere.  Anyone from Seattle who can direct me to a good hospital?  Really, really appreciate suggestions.


Do you work out of the Seattle office?

Just curious.  Our Portland office closed recently. 

Hi Headachy in Seattle. It helps to be an MT!
I freak my doctors out a lot with suggestions on my treatment, some they have not heard of yet. They are always asking me, "Where did you get that?" Good luck with your headaches. With steroid injections, even though they wear off, sometimes a nice break from them, albeit temporary, gives you time to catch your breath to be able to handle them again.
You have played around with this for a year
Perfect here - Lake Stevens (just outside of Seattle) 72 degrees. NM

My kids always played or still play outside sm

I refuse to have cable (garbage) TV and have since my 11-y-o was 2.

2 of my older kids are grown and gone. I still have the 11-y-o and her 15-y-o brother at home. All 4 are underweight or borderline. Not because they don't eat because boy do they ever.

My kids also have the "can't sit still" type of personalities where they have to be moving all the time.

What is really sad is that my 11-y-o is 87 pounds, which puts her in the just below normal range and she thinks she is "fat" because society is beginning to make anyone with an ounce of body fat look "overweight." It's sick.

My poor older son is 6 foot 3 and 135 lbs. He has tried everything to GAIN weight and he has never been able to gain so much as an ounce. Of course he gets teased on the "flip side" because he's so darn skinny.

It's time society stopped obsessing.

Pat was played by Nora Dunn.......I think....nm

My son has played since 2nd grade, quit last year and sm

came back this year excited about it for the first time in 4 years.  I did not realize that he was not having fun anymore until I see how much fun he is having this year.  I also talked to a few college scouts who said that it does not matter if they take a year off to concentrate on grades.  My son missed it more than he thought.  I am just glad my husband and I kept our mouths shut last year.




I agree, they just played it on our local radio here. Also, General Honore..sm
I heard him being interviewed by CNN today and boy is he The Man In Charge. The authority of this man outstanding, he got the troops, the supplies, the convoys in there. Finally we're getting somewhere. I thikn he's going to be the "Rudy" of this tragedy.
We played our rescue's favorite game if she started looking worried when a storm came up.
Normally we would do as mistoo does and ignore the storm, and she did fine. But one storm was particularly loud, so she seemed a bit anxious. I got down into "let's play" position on the floor, and proceded to play a nice loud growly-bump game with her. We had a good time, and the exercise not only distracted her, but the physical exertion calmed her nerves and made her very happy.

Recently I kept my sister's dog for a week and discovered that fireworks cause her to shake terribly. I called my sister, who had never seen her quake with fear - because they leave the dog outside all the time. So all those times fireworks have gone off in the neighborhood, her dog has been outside alone, quaking in fear. So sad. For her nerves I put a T-shirt on her (supposed to be calming to put on semi-tight clothes) and let her sit in my lap on the couch. Yup, all 50 lb of border collie up on my lap, LOL.
Wasn't someone who played in the movie "As Good As It Gets" named Ardell (a male)?
In a pinch I have played the cassette in front of my computer mic and recorded using the sound playe
Mine is located by going to the start menu, to accessories, to games, to sound recorder. As long as it is quiet in the room, the sound quality is excellent.
Saw him on CMT show with John Fogarty. Great, great singer with a neat personality and drop dead
gorgeous without seeming to know it. 
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.
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!!
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
