Trouble on the high seas

A princess cruise ship my have had rutter issuse off the coast sending approx 40 people to the hospital. Two of the passangers were injured serious enough to be flown to Holmes Regional Medical Center and Arnold Palmer Childrens Hospital in Orlando. Rescue Crews from Brevard County Fire Resue, Coastal Health System, NASA and Volusia County's EVAC. I must say at least this happened after they enjoyed most of their vacation. The cruise line is making arrangements for the passangers make it home safely tomorrow. Boy I am glad I am not flying out of any of the local airports tomorrow. Cory was upset because he was on crew with coastal and was stuck in south brevard Slinging Lizard. Oh well. I think of it this way.. Less paper work..

Work Vent. One of my co-workers is always behind in the work load. Well she did not look in the chart and she sent out something to the wrong lab. It was clearly documented on the note that I put in that the patient wanted Quest. The person who what the physicians MA finished up the case and did not read the chart. And whos fault is that. I a tired of hearing I am so over worked.. You are not over worker you just have poor time management. Instead of coming in and talking to the billing department start your work. Instead of yelling at your family, take your messages off instead of waiting until 5pm even when you have sat at your desk all day. Manage your time wiser and you could complete so much more.

Yes. they are in my hand. I have my itineraries for my trip. Now I really have to start packing. How & what do I pack It is 6 working days and 12 total days until I leave. I guess this weekend I really need to get stuff in the bag. I can not wait. There are 5 couples, 13 kids and the rest are use single people. It looks like a good bunch. So I leave Orlando on July 24th at 2:30pm and land in Atlanta at 4:03pm. We take off Atlanta at 7:30pm and land in london at 9am on July 25th. Then I head back on August 1st at 11:55am and I will be back in Florida some time around 8:33pm. Yes it is truely here.. I can not wait.. tick tick tick.. time is ticking away....

Vent about Florida today

Yep you got it.. Florida Today is a screwed up website. In mid June they partnered up with the Brevard Zoo to run a contest for amatur photographers. You were to submit a picture of a butterfly. I have some great photos of butterflys and catipillers. I seached high and low. I searched the florida today, brevard zoo, wa1a and google with no avail. I could not find any information about this contest anywhere. I wrote one person at the brevard zoo who did rwrite me back but blew off any other emails I wrote. So I sent in four different pictures and never heard anything else. Today the website was published in the paper, so I go to look for my picture.. It is no where to be found. I can not find any of them posted. And the kicker is the rules are finally posted after the contest has stopped excepting entries. I called thephone number on the webpage and she can not hlep me. She give me the number to the lady over the features section. So I wrote the place where I sent the e-mail to enter, the editor and publisher. I have never seen a contest so hard to enter in my life. very frustrating.

And we have lift off

Today the shuttle made it's way back into space. After two delays because of thunderstorms the shuttle heads for the sky. There were a few scattered well off shore but around the shuttle complex the sky is clear. It was a beautiful launch. That is one of the great things about on the space coast. You are lucky enough to watch these large birds race toward the sky.
