    recycling- seriously

    I was seriously thinking about that at our facility.I mean our kids here have wonderful gardens.Imagine the composted material that gets wasted such as potatoe peels,coffee grounds,ect.I personally have been recycling and composting for years.And we have the most beautiful garden on the block! But I think it might be against the health dept.for the kitchen to save such items.Im not sure what they do with plastics and stuff.

    Sometimes it is the Nurse who saves the patient

    Your letter is so heartwrming! Im a nurse for abused/neglected kids,most who are not with families.Ill try to be sure to give out extra hugs to the kids today.One day theyll grow up and maybe remember the kindness of a nurse.
