    Brian, I think that this site was your destiny. It has enriched so many peoples lives.

    It is my home page, my passion, my obsession, my life, my WHOLE WORLD--well not quite, but I do come here as often as I can stick my kids in the tub (ha ha).

    Thanks for you.:kiss :kiss

    I am especially grateful for not having to deal with a barrage of "pop-up" ads and other distractions. I would be able to deal with banner ads if it would help bring in some revenue.
    1.8 million hits a month should attract some revenue.
    Thanks for the superb site.

    Thanks Brian, that was very interesting. I went on-line in about 94, and I vaguely remember world-wide nurse.

    Since I did my web site, I have also had e-mails from home health nurses around the world, and that is really cool. Nothing like your traffic here though. I didn't even bother to put a counter on the site!

    Keep up the good work. And get those boxer shorts ready for Heather, OK?

    Thanks Brian for creating such a wonderful site. I know I'm here everyday, as my husband likes to remind me. :chuckle I'd like to second what Russell said about the pop-up windows, etc.

    I enjoy reading everything and commenting where I have something to say. I say alot as my posts # has grown quickly! I'm just starting my nursing journey this summer by taking my pre-req's...with that said, I'm thumbing through a medical dictionary often trying to figure out what some of you are talking about.

    My hubby says I'm always sitting on my a** at, so I figure I might as well have across my a**

    Hey, what about it???? Sure, T-shirts, boxer shorts, tank tops, -- with the website, of course, and some of the great trailers you all have attached to your posts... Any plans?
    I too am hooked on it; like a good movie, reading just the most recent threads can send my emotions on a roller-coaster ride, educate me, challenge me . . . Great site!

    This is by FAR the BEST board on the web for nurses. Brian has done a wonderful job with it and is always looking for ways to improve it. I mention this site to my fellow nurses all the time and they sometimes look at me like I am crazy or something. I have received a lot of great information and support from everybody on the bb, I consider it to be my "extended family"!

    I think Brian and his crew need to develop an "all" store so Heather can buy her boxer shorts and I can buy a t-shirt and pens and all that stuff!

    Keep up the great work Brian!

    Brian needs to put a bug in some ears during Nurse Appreciation Week. Imagine this for a moment, is a place we all love to visit...right? grab bags everywhere with invitations to an get together, where nurses are treated like royalty, complete with makeovers and massages!

    Imagine the possibilities!?!?!? :hatparty:
