  1. Good morning peeps, Sorry for being such a stranger over the past couple of weeks. I’m getting settled here in Rochester and things are going extremely well at work. Took my exams on Thursday for the modules I will be working in and I am now “legal” to train OR staff on the EMR system. The corporate culture at RGH (Rochester General Hospital) is quite an improvement over that at Mt. Sinai and my boss is a pleasure to work for.

    Rochester is proving to be a far more pleasant place than I expected it to be and I’m enjoying getting to know the place. I haven’t seen Lake Ontario yet and I have a friend’s car for the weekend (will be getting my own in about two weeks) and am planning to take Ralphie over to see the lake in a couple of hours. Speaking of Ralphie he has become quite the darling of the hotel staff where I’m living and have arranged for one of the staff members to walk him on afternoons I’m working.

    I hope you are all well and having a grand summer!

    glad to hear everything is going well, Brian.

    Glad things are turning out good for you. It’s great to know you and Ralphie are happy in your new city.

    Am thinking Ralphie living the hotel life could be a blogpost, either here on on Brian’s blog. Good to hear all is settling out in Rochester.

    I hope everyone involved in solving the debt crisis debate is happy with the shitty outcome. I hear Canada is building a border fence to prevent US residents from fleeing their home country and trying to enter Canada illegally.

    This made me laugh.

    Conservatives rip Newsweek’s ‘crazy-eyes’ Bachmann cover

    Of course, Newsweek ran two inane covers in the first two weeks of July alone — Princess Diana, as imagined at age 50 (and into iPhones, botox and Facebook), and Sarah Palin with “I Can Win.”

    Mainstream media, in all its glory.

      Now this is interesting: Standard & Poor’s is owned by McGraw Hill. The president, CEO and chair of McGraw Hill is Harold Whittlesey McGraw III. He also served on Bush’s Transition Advisory Committee on Trade, and reportedly working on Mitt Romney’s campaign. So is S&P’s downgrade a coincidence?

    one of my fb friends changed the line Queen of Rage to Batshit Crazy. seemed appropriate.

    Dooty – love the new caption for MB. Also very interesting about S & P. Nothing exists without some connection to a political figure. Crappy!

  9. TempeBev

    Sorry, the S & P comment should have gone to D – very interesting.

    The Wisconsin recall race results may be the beginning of people waking up to the fact that repugs only think of ideology and themselves rather than the good of the people and country. Crossing my fingers for more outcomes like this.

    ODS-OSA – great – also liked that it was first aired on Stephanie Miller’s show.

    like that Crosby Stills and Nash song “I almost cut my hair today” I could say “We almost had rain today” But we did not the record attempt is still in place. 41 days today and tomorrow if over 100 it will tie the record of 1980. I think I wanna break the record after enduring this much heat for so long it would be anti-climatic if we don’t break the damned record.

  13. Dooty

    Well poop, it didn’t hit 100 today so we suffered thru 40 days just to come in second. How disappointing.
