    If you make it to Florida and Disney, take a detour to St. Petersburg (near Tampa) as they have a Salvadore Dali museum. It's pretty cool.


    On the medical office thing. I was just thinking how weird it would be to have someone do office work and blood draws. I'm thinking that most doctor's offices I have experience with, the office people usually do NOT do anything with the patients (except office type stuff) and the medical staff does not do paperwork.
    So to look to hire someone that does both is kind of weird to me. And it may just be me.

    I got called that a lot.

    But I also had a lot of repeat customers that would ask for me and I always took that as a compliment. I've had enough bad phlebotomists that I never ever "dug for gold" when I stuck someone. I was told often that I had a "natural" gift for it, so maybe I do have some "vampire" in me.

    I got on the job training and was not sent to school. Different states require different types of training and licensing.

    I think what I found funny in that ad is that I answered an ad for a receptionist for a doctor's office and it had been filled. The RN asked me if I'd be interested in being a medical assistant instead. Sure why not? I was hired and trained in the office by the RN and one of the midwives taught me phlebotomy.

    Gabriel, as a life long Pittsburgher, that made me smile. And the sandwiches are wonderful, I think it's the bread that makes them extra special.

    My bucket list:

    I want to go to London, I've read so many books that are set there. I want to see it in person.

    I want to go to Italy to see where my great grandparents lived. And for the food obviously.

    Well, you could hire me as a manager -- I know what to do, and would be more than happy to supervise the s**t shoveling, fence fixing, hay stacking, tractor maintaining, barn cleaning, etc. etc. I'll do the animal spoiling myself so it's done right

    On my farm, one difference--I like all the weird varieties chickens come in, but can't stand more than a couple of ducks or geese around a pond. The mess they make is horrible, and they bug you to death while you're trying to fish. I think I would skip the roosters, too, because of the noise.
    I've read "The Egg and I" but never seen any movies about Ma and Pa Kettle.
    Gabriel, when I was a kid we lived out in the sticks and I was always looking for a chance to go visit my friends who had farms so I could 'help'. There were cows and a bull in the pasture directly behind our house, and I was so jealous that we didn't have any. Any chance I got I was fooling with cows, pigs, or horses. I bought my own horse when I wa 16 and did all the horse related things till I was around 40, and still rode a lot until my last horse show buddy moved a few years ago.
    So you may have entirely the wrong picture of me!

    Superbrat, I want to see the Mutter museum too.
    MRD, I've tried to go to that Dali museum a few times in the last 25 years, and every time I was in the area, it was closed for whatever reason. Just a weird coincidence; one of these days I may see it.

    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    You're hired, but I need a sh** shoveler too.

    Most of my friends growing up lived on farms too and I have seen intimately how they run. My best friends dad had Guinea Hens and what a nusiance those things were. Someone was always trying to round up the Guinea Hens and chasing the damn things.

    We used to have cow patty fights in the pastures. Now that is a fun time.

    Gabriel probably does have an accurate picture of me. While I was raised in a small town and am familiar with livestock and country living, I have not ever really done much of it myself. But I think I could. I like being outdoors and I like animals, so I don't think it would be a problem. Right now when my family irritatest the you know what out of me, I imagine myself heading out to the barn to take care of animals and muck stalls. I'd rather do that and have peace and quiet then put up with teenage angst and middleaged husbanditis.

    What??? I swear I need to start wearing my glasses when I'm on the computer. The word I was trying to type was irritates.

    Well we have about 2 inches of snow! Looks beautiful, has covered all the ugly stuff and made the evergreens look really pretty. This is the first time seeing it at night and boy is it ever bright outside. You could read by the light being reflected. check out the animal thread for the dogs reactions to it.

    I just checked the radar and the snow is almost over and the freezing rain and sleet is on its way. Time for me to go to bed and sleep through that.
