Urg - worked last night - came into a cluster-mess that we didn't straighten out until 0200. The first thing 3 people said to me when I went in was "Are you supposed to be here?" Uh, yes, I'm your 3d nurse. One guy looked at me with a surprised ... Read more
Summer In The City

Looking like another scorcher in the Duke City - Albuquerque was named for the Duke of Albuerquerque (yep, the most common misspelling was the original correct one!). Walked the dogs and was home by 10 MDT - over 85 and climbing. George Ge... Read more
