Sunday Break

Because there is no such thing as taking too many breaks!

*****

Pumpkin PieThis coming Thursday is Thanksgiving Day – lots of eating and lots of football! Here is a photo of a previous year’s pumpkin pie…I wonder what this year’s pie will look like?

I continue to hear from many friends that they and/or their children have the entire week off. That’s pretty cool, but when did this start? All through college and grad school, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving was still an official day…although I don’t think anyone, including the professors, ever attended.

Last night, before going to sleep, I pulled out one of my art books and spent a couple of minutes looking at a work of art. (The page I flipped open to was Nicolas de Largilliere’s Family Portrait, c.1710?) I think I am going to try to make this a nightly habit from now on.

A few years ago I was on a long flight, where they showed the pilot episode of Big Bang Theory. (You know, when they give you hours of television programming from a certain network…usually CBS.) I didn’t really find the new show interesting…but after catching a few re-runs the other day, I am loving it. Ready for another marathon viewing session are dvds of The Big Bang Theory The Complete First Season and The Complete Second Season.

Fired for distributing Avon catalogs and products during work hours? Sounds fishy to me. Read more.

Stay tuned…for the next adventure of Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy!

    They stopped everyone at my hospital system from selling Avon at work also….it was to the point that one Avon Rep would throw away the other’s catalog and replace them with hers….so now nobody can have any type of sales catalog or sell anything at work.
    They also have a new rule starting last week that you may not have your personal cell phone on your person at work, even if it’s on silent. Most everybody is fighting that one…on the basis that it’s discrimination because they don’t make the physicians leave their cell phones off (and many of them work for the hospital as hospitalists..they have no office hours, they just see inpatients, who have to follow up with their personal MD when discharged)many nurses use their iphones for work related applications (calculator, drug guides, look up dignosis/lab result normals) Personally I think the rule is meant to deter them from using the iphones for email/texting while at work, because I see that a lot. Frankly, my cell stays in my pocket…I’ve had to use it before when the phone system went out and it makes a handy flashlight in a dark room.(like when both the generator and the back up failed last year)

    Just stopping by to say I always enjoy my Sunday Break by stopping by and catching up on your latest adventures. That pie looks wonderful. Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving.
