    Huge Wave of Baby-Boomers Retiring? Not So Fast!

    whoa! not so fast! i've been retired since my early 50's - i'm now 60 - and do not feel - some also say; not look :) - a day older! in fact, i get up early every day and live a rich, full and productive - retired -life! retirement does not = decline. in fact, it's the best way to live after years of hard slog, sweat and tears. retirement brings many opportunities which are not possible while in the workforce. see .... most of us "oldies" run rings around the "youngies!" retirement- getting older- does not = inactivity and/or decline.

    Daytonite has passed away...

    I had no idea! Have only just now read this thread. RIP dear Joyce. Condolences - albeit, belatedly - to the family. Sadly, as sometimes happens, our correspondence dwindled, and I feel dreadful about that. I knew how ill Joyce was, we talked about it in our correspondence. Then ... time and events preoccupied our lives and now ..... I'm so very very saddened to read this sad news. I'm glad you enjoyed wearing the T-shirts dear Joyce! :) I'll always remember you. Your generosity was humbling and I'll forever associate "Damages" with you and our critique's after the shows! :) A candle is lit and prayers said. The world is a better place for having you in it. Love ... Grace xxx

    The culture of nursing - Professional behaviour & conduct

    G'day Rachel ..... many thanks for your kind words in your PM, I'm only too glad to have been able to offer some advice and support. Other than to second some of what the OP have written, I really have no further advice or suggestions to share with you this time. Ultimately it's up to the individual to learn, grow and be the best they can be in any given situation. Nursing, as is life generally, is one continuous learning curve. The main thing is to not be your own harshest judge .. others will openly, gladly and at times, cruelly, be that for you! Learn to listen to your instincts, learn to trust yourself and your own judgements. The [earthly] person who we owe the most to is the one looking back at us in the mirror. Apart from the above, I really have nothing more to add but do wish you continued success and encourage you to hang in there and keep on keeping on.

    New Forum: Natural Disasters - Worldwide

    Thanks Brian. I heard another quake hit Haiti in todays news. So terribly terribly tragic. Continued thoughts and prayers for all affected by this tragedy, and also for the brave volunteers and other rescue personnel who are doing all they can to help. Appeals for donations have opened here in Australia and as always, Aussies are responding generously. In times such as this, the world needs to come together as one. One of my favourite songs is John Lennons .... IMAGINE.

    Welcome to the Forum - General Aussie Chat

    Glad you're receiving some rain there too. We did today and the temps have cooled .... which makes this ..... http://au.news.yahoo.com/a/-/mp/6670460/four-dead-in-smash-near-barossa/ ......... all the more tragic. I can't understand why they were evacuating given temps had dropped and we had rain. This is not far from home here. We travel to the valley on that road all the time. Heartbreaking. We did have code red for the past several days, but I didn't think we had it today.
