    Your Pre-Clinicals Book Recommendations, Please...

    Learn your lab values. If you get those down now before you start, you won't have to worry about memorizing them when you are trying to memorize a thousand other things! Learn the serum electrolyte values, WBC, RBC, Hamoglobin and Hematocrit, BUN and Creatinine, and the urinalysis values. It will help!

    Dolivaxil homeopathic flu defense

    Dolivaxil Flu Defense Has anyone ever heard of this or tried it? It sounds like a fairly effective thing against the flu. I may have to give it a try, in lieu of the flu shot.

    I love my ultrascope. I can hear anything with it. Plus, it's cute! Mine has a picture of a frog on it.

    Backpack on Wheels - Recommendations

    Don't buy one of the cheap ones at Walmart. I had one and it constantly tipped over, and I busted a zipper trying to cram books in it. Some people in my class had ones called American Tourister that you also get at Walmart. I am not sure how much they are, But they are big, have wheels, and don't tip over. That is what I am getting for next semester.

    Can't get away from school...

    I know how you feel. I took my last final on Tuesday and ever since then I've been looking over IV calculations for next semester, I bought a NCLEX-PN review book I have been looking over every day, and there are some notes that I did not get around to typing this semester that I want to get to this weekend. I just cant get out of the studying mentality for anything. Maybe this weekend I will have some fun. You too! :chuckle

    letter home

    Letter from a West Virginia farm kid in basic training at the Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot Dear Ma and Pa, I Am well. Hope you are. Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the Marine Corps beats working for old man Minch by a mile. Tell them to join up quick before maybe all of the places are filled. I was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 6 A.M., but am getting so I like to sleep late. Tell Walt and Elmer all you do before breakfast is smooth your cot and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay. Practically nothing. Men got to shave but it is not so bad, there's warm water. Breakfast is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, etc., but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie and other regular food. But tell Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city boys that live on coffee. Their food plus yours holds you till noon, when you get fed again. It's no wonder these city boys can't walk much. We go on "route" marches, which the Platoon Sergeant says are long walks to harden us. If he thinks so, it is not my place to tell him different. A "route march" is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks. The country is nice, but awful flat. The Sergeant is like a schoolteacher. He nags some. The Capt. is like the school board. Majors and Colonels just ride around and frown. They don't bother you none. This next will kill Walt and Elmer with laughing. I keep getting medals for shooting. I don't know why. The bulls-eye is near as big as a chipmunk head and don't move. And it ain't shooting at you, like the Higgett boys at home. All you got to do is lie there all comfortable and hit it. You don't even load your own cartridges. They come in boxes. Then we have what they call hand-to-hand combat training. You get to wrestle with them city boys. I have to be real careful though, they break real easy. It ain't like fighting with that ole bull at home. I'm about the best they got in this except for that Tug Jordan from over in Silver Lake. He joined up the same time as me. But I'm only 5'6" and 130 pounds and he's 6'8" and weighs near 300 pounds dry. Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry and join before other fellers get onto this setup and come stampeding in. Your loving daughter, Gail

    The mole family

    A mama mole, a papa mole, and a baby mole all live in a little mole hole. One day the papa mole sticks his head out of the hole, sniffs the air and says,"Yum! I smell maple syrup!" The mama mole sticks her head out of the hole, sniffs the air and says "Yum! I smell honey!" The baby mole tries to stick his head out of the hole to sniff the air, but can't because the bigger moles are in the way so he says, "Geez, all I can smell is.... Scroll down....... Get ready..... Are you sure you're ready? You may never forgive me for this one... MOLASSES!
