WORK vs PLAY



AND THINK ABOUT THIS!




 1923, Who Was:

 
1. President of the largest steel company?

 2. President of the largest gas company?

 3.
President of the New York stock Exchange?

 4. Greatest wheat speculator?

 5. President of the Bank of International Settlement?

 6. Great Bear of Wall Street?




 
These men were considered some of the worlds most successful of
their days..


Now, 87 years later, the history book asks us, if we know what ultimately became of them..........


 
 The Answers: 1. The president of the largest steel company.

 Charles Schwab,  
died a pauper.

 
2. The president of the largest gas company,

 Edward Hopson,
went insane..

 
3. The president of the NYSE,

 Richard Whitney,
was released from prison
to die at home.

 
4. The greatest wheat speculator,

 Arthur Cooger,
died abroad, penniless.

 
5. The president of
 the Bank of International Settlement,
 shot himself.

 
6.
The Great Bear of Wall Street,

 Cosabee Livermore,

 
also committed suicide

 

However,

 
in that same year, 1923, the PGA Champion

 and the winner of the most important golf tournament, the US Open, was

 
Gene Sarazen.


What became of him?

 
He played golf until he

was 92,

 died in 1999 at the age of

95.

 He was financially secure
 

at the time of his death.

 
The Moral:

 
Screw work. Play golf.. or

PLAY period!!!!!!!

PERFECTION: The PERFECT GAME!

 Perfectly Serene?

 Perfectly Timed Splash? Totally Subjective!

Again- Perfectly Timed? Depends on what I was going for doesn't it? If I wanted it BEFORE it hit the water-It's not even close!

Again? Perfect Shot (ar ar) with Basketball? Who's to say?

 Perfect Hole in Rusty Thingy? Measure it! It's probably WAY off under the Microscope of Scrutiny!

 Perfect Shot through Perfect Hole? (This is part of the Life Seen Through a Rusty Hole series sneak preview!)
Again--what is the Definition of Perfection here?

PERFECTION IS ONE OF THOSE WORDS THAT MAY CARRY MANY DIFFERENT MEANINGS ACCORDING TO THE SCENARIO. FOR BASEBALL FANS A PITCHER PITCHED

 A PERFECT GAME,

AGAINST TAMPA BAY. HE IS IN THE HISTORY BOOKS. FOREVER. FOR PERFECTION. ACCORDING TO ALL THE PARAMETERS  ON A GIVEN DAY IN HIS CRAFT!

THAT IS NO RUNS, NO HITS, AND, MORE IMPRESSIVELY NO WALKS!!!  TO SAY THIS IS RARE IS OVERSTATING THE OBVIOUS:

Halladay throws perfect game, beats Marlins 1-0

MIAMI (AP)—
Stoic as always, Roy Halladay’s(notes) expression never changed.
Until the end, that is.  The Philadelphia Phillies’ ace threw the 20th perfect game in major league history, beating the Florida Marlins
1-0 on Saturday night.  
IN BASEBALL HISTORY!  THE 20!!!!  EVER!!!!!!!


HOW MANY OF US SAY WE ARE "PERFECTIONIST?" HOW FRUSTRATING IS THAT? EVEN WHEN WE PUT TOGETHER WHAT WE THINK IS PERFECT, WE GO BACK AND FIND ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT, OR 100 TINY MISTAKES. NOW DON'T GET ME WRONG--IT'S GREAT TO SEEK IMPROVEMENT & PERFECTION!

BUT C'MON--CAN'T WE EVEN ENJOY A MOMENT?
FOR SOMETHING OTHERS SAY, "WELL DONE!, OR "THAT WAS AWESOME!????".


I wonder if this Pitcher went back and criticized himself, looking to do even better, or if he just RELISHED the moment and said "Yes- I did it!" We are truly are own worst critics sometimes, and even when people compliment us on a good job. We don't even no how to gracefully:

 RECEIVE A COMPLIMENT!


Do you ever feel like you did something perfectly-  or at least to the absolute best of your ability, only to have someone pick it apart?

How does it feel when you do that, and someone criticizes it, or you?

How does a Child feel, when they bring you scribbles on a paper, and we know it's not "PERFECT"--but they DON'T! Nobody has told them differently yet! To THEM IT'S PERFECT!
And yet we so off handily dismiss them with a, "That's nice Honey", or "That's pretty", not even looking?

How can we take what is said about Being made perfect in Christ, and use it practically--or is it Practically of no use?

There is one area in which I STRIVE for perfection- and that is MEDICINE! I DO NOT WANT TO MESS UP HERE! THE CONSEQUENCES AND STAKES ARE HIGH!!!!!

ARE THEIR CERTAIN AREAS YOU SEEK PERFECTION IN AND NOT OTHERS?  See- the caps lock affliction again- but I'm not changing it! So now you don't know if I'm yelling..which I hardly ever do, or using caps for emphasis- which I do a LOT! But- you not knowing me--don't know that!

What is PERFECTION to you? 
How do you define it? 
Do you seek it?
Are you even conscious of it, and if so in what areas?? 
Why some and not all?
Is it even attainable?
If not--WHY BOTHER at all?

Just a little poser to think about today and heading into next week!

MAYBE IT WILL BE A PERFECT WEEK!!

THEY'VE DONE IT AGAIN!


The Insensitive Meteorologists I mean. Ours reported that the High temps we were having were due to an area of:

DISTURBED WEATHER

off our Coast. What disturbed it? Did it hear about the Oil Splill?
He also mentioned something I think is an Oxymoron- a BACK DOOR FRONT!!!  WT????

POPCORN- Thunderstorms in SC. These literally POP up in one spot and may dump 1-3 inches of rain in a 5 mile area and not a drop anywhere else. These are about 5-7,000 feet-mere Babies. The Bigguns get to 30-40,000 feet, produce Hail, and 50 mph winds. These did not even form at all! They just disappeared!

SO!!

Should I watch the back door- or the front? Now I don't mind a Little DENSE FOG- that he reported on earlier, but a Disturbed- Back Door Front- well that has me a little concerned. It also seems that all of these "Weather-makers" are LOW's. OK--I can buy that--you get a little distressed you get a little low. Then it becomes a DEEPENING or DEVELOPING LOW! OMG- RUN!

Now for the Biggie!

It's HURRICANE SEASON_ OUUUUUHHHHH! SPOOKY!

As if we can't see them coming for hundreds of miles, and DAYS away!! Why don't we seed them with Prozac when they are "Tropical Depressions"?????? Maybe we could raise their self esteem and they wouldn't tear across Jamaica sucking up all that RUM, and then hitting the Hot OILY Gulf and sobering up and getting the shakes!

Then they will hear all about the Oil, Get REALLY PISSED-More DEPRESSED, DEEPER in a funk and haul butt ashore and wreak havock.

These aren't like illegals that are sneaking across the border. They form out in the open, and we can send AIRPLANES into them. Sneaky aren't they!? I say send in the Welbutrin, or the Chantix--give them their Nicotine fix and see if they won't chill, and not go Postal on the US!

Here are the ACCURATE AND SPOT ON PREDICTIONS!!!!!!!

14- to 23--NOW there's a pinpoint number-- Named Storms!

8-14 Hurricanes--Hmmmmmm... about 50/50?????

3 to 7   ????? COULD be MAJOR HURRICANES!  50/50 again?

“If this outlook holds true, this season could be one of the more active on record,” said Jane Lubchenco, Ph.D., under secretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA administrator. “The greater likelihood of storms brings an increased risk of a landfall. In short, we urge everyone to be prepared.”
The outlook ranges exceed the seasonal average of 11 named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes. Expected factors supporting this outlook are:

BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Upper atmospheric winds conducive for storms. Wind shear, which can tear apart storms, will be weaker since El NiƱo in the eastern Pacific has dissipated. Strong wind shear helped suppress storm development during the 2009 hurricane season.
  • Warm Atlantic Ocean water. Sea surface temperatures are expected to remain above average where storms often develop and move across the Atlantic. Record warm temperatures – up to four degrees Fahrenheit above average – are now present in this region.
  • High activity era continues. Since 1995, the tropical multi-decadal signal has brought favorable ocean and atmospheric conditions in sync, leading to more active hurricane seasons. Eight of the last 15 seasons rank in the top ten for the most named storms with 2005 in first place with 28 named storms. 
8 of last 15????       about 50/50??????????
Hurricane Noel.

NO NEED TO THANK ME!!! GO GET YOUR PLYWOOD & WATER NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
you have about 5 in 10 chances of getting it in time! Do the Math!

AN AWARD FROM PAT! LIFE IS GOOD!!!!!!


I just received an award from Patrick Tillett: @ Extremely Overdue: called: The White Russian Award.

I am extremely proud and humbled that Pat would bestow this on me. I display it proudly- with the only two strings attached! Thanks Pat! The Dude- is indeed awesome! To THE DUDE-in all of us!


Please go by and check out one of the Best Blogs I frequent, and enjoy the exquisite Photography of this Gentleman. http://patricktillett.blogspot.com/

My post today was much longer originally- (Blogger lost it- after 1 hour of writing/re-writing!--even though it said it was saving it!!!) Liar!-

I just needed to write about how everything my in Life appears 
PERFECT right now!
 I'm not sure what happened, I have no idea why it happened, but as of Last Night, it's like everything in Life just came together. There is a Calmness and a Peace that I have that passes all Understanding!

Thanks GOD!

I'm not trying to rub this in, or be somebody or something I'm not. I just feel so grateful and appreciative of everything right now!

Again, I don't understand why, at this particular juncture of my life, nor why I suddenly realized this last night. My circumstances have not changed, I didn't win the lottery, my wife didn't leave me--(just kidding!) but should life for me end today--AND I PRAY IT DOESN'T,

I AM ONE HAPPY AND CONTENT MAN!

I can only pray, that the Feeling, and Knowing, I have inside me...is somehow conveyed to each and every person who reads these words!

Look for the Positives! They are out there!

Thanks again Pat, and God Bless one and all!

STUFF I'VE LEFT UNATTENDED AND IS SUFFERING


STUFF I'VE NEGLECTED & IT'S STILL ALIVE!



THE ABOVE 3 PICTURES ARE OF A MAGNOLIA TREE I DUG UP OUT OF THE WOODS. IT STARTED AS ONE LIMB AND 4 LEAVES! IT WILL GRACE OUR NEW HOME SOON!



ABOVE IS WHAT I WAS TOLD IS AN "IRISH CLOVER". IF ANYONE KNOWS MORE ABOUT IT PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
EMBARRASSED BY MY ANEMIC HIBISCUS!- BUT IT DOES OVER WINTER IN THE POT! I GAVE 1/2 OF IT TO A FRIEND AND IT IS RECOVERING FROM THE DIVISION!
 THIS IS WHERE THE OTHER 1/2 USED TO LIVE- BUT HERS IS ABOUT TO FLOWER THIS SPRING!

THE HOSTA THAT WAS DIVIDED AND GIVEN TO THE SAME FRIEND--HERS IS DOUBLE THE SIZE AND READY TO FLOWER.

Check out hers--this is the second year and it's now ready to flower,  and she could divide it!
I LOVE trading and passing around different plants, and the stories they hold of being "In the Family", etc!
I have always secretly wanted to run a small Nursery. But my Nipples get tired from all the kids suckling!

THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PLANTS EXCEPT IT WOULD HAVE MADE GREAT FERTILIZER--BUT ALSO REMINDS ME I'M NOT ALL WUSS! I THINK I NEED ONE MORE PAIR OF GLASSES AROUND MY NECK!

ME MAN--CAPTURE AND RELEASE SHARK---BEATS CHEST!


SITS DOWN OFF CAMERA IN EXHAUSTION!- WHEEZING!


NO I'M. NOT SHOUTING--I AM JUST RETARDED WHEN IT COMES TO THE CAPS LOCK KEY!

MEDICAL MONDAY

For Daffy!



MEDMISSION MONDAY!

Today we took the Med Mission van to Batesburg-Leesville about 25 minutes up the road. This was our very first set-up that we ever did two weeks ago, when we saw 8 patients. Today we saw 14 in the 2 hours. All different patients than 2 weeks ago, so word is getting out. All but one was a legitimate candidate. Unfortunately the other was a drug seeker, but all in all a nice person. We do not prescribe narcotics, nor do we keep any prescription meds, and have signs saying so, strictly for safety reasons!

People with Jonses' can do some crazy stuff.... but we do not feel threatened. That still doesn't mean you shouldn't be smart and stay alert. I have mixed feelings for people with Prescription Addictions, as most if not all were created by the same system. I'm really not capable of judging them, but I also do not desire to be an enabler, contributing to the problem. Thankfully that is not our focus at all, in this Free Clinic.
We did call in some pain meds for a patient with terrible staph infection of the knee...and I didn't take my camera as this was the awesome Boil I promised you all!

If it drained down into his/her footwear- would it be PUS in Boots?

Fortunately, (or unfortunately), depending on your point of view, we have become as addicted to Drive through INSTANT Cures, as we have meals! We want to be well, and we want it now!!!! How dare I have to suffer through a Headache or God forbid a 24 hour Stomach Bug with cramps!!! People actually left the Urgent Scare saying....well I don't FEEL better yet! People are not into hurting or suffering one bit! Now- of course no one wants to be sick or hurt--by my Gosh--IT COMES WITH LIFE!!! DEAL WITH IT!

OMG...let's see--you had it for 18 hours, and you've been here an hour and your not well!
Damn!

What are we doing wrong? LOL! I'm serious ya'll...it has gotten that bad. We had people coming in with Pizzas, and Boxes from Fast Food chains, sign in, ask how long the wait was and, I need a Blanket in the same breath!
They were truly Tailgating.....
Plus, we are being graded--yes GRADED, by a Press-Gainey score, that the patient sends back to tell you how you did! Imagine not getting your Narcotics! Think that may reflect in the scores returned?? But not be an indicator of whether good medicine was practiced or not?

Anywho, it's all part and parcel of the phenomenal changes I've witnessed in Medicine since 1973! It's really unparalleled. Not to mention the fact that a Dr. may be sued by anyone, at anytime, for any reason: then add in these scores, and you now have a Hospitality driven industry- in stead of, Hospital..No Fatality, Driven Industry!!

The patients today were sooo grateful, and thanked us profusely for providing the service, and for being there! It made all the past, "Problem Patients" melt away. It was a Pleasure, to SERVE these wonderful people. And the stories......oh boy... talk about ripping your Heart out.

~Things are tough all over folks. We are tougher!~

Have a great week!

CRIME SCENES INVESTIGATIUON: CSI: BUBBA! 4 iNzICs SC !!


CSI BUBBA! A NEW SERIES :

4 iNzICs, SC !!

from the producers of Bubba Goes Viral , & yes it was Herpes.

AS ALWAYS I WILL NEED YOUR HELP SOLVED- ING THE FOLLOWING CRIME SCENE--ALL POSTULATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.
Everyone is guilty until I say otherwise--even YOU!

The show opens with a picture of Larry- the Telephone pole on the way to my mailbox. You must admit that a LOT OF CHIT happens on the way to my mailbox....but there are several routes. I'll draw a map!

Anyway--his real name is:
But he asked me to call him Larry--after Larry the Cable Guy is my guess? But Larry stands silent vigil and sees most everything. We have nothing better to do in the South than to name our poles!

Heff- shut up! Zip it- Zip- Ah- Na--Zip.....


THE CASE OF THE BLACK GLOVE!
or 
(Whip ME, Beat ME, Make ME, Write Bad Checks!) 
Is An Abortion in Russia- a Canceled Czech?


On the way back I saw Michael Jackson's alter ego in the Pine Woods...well at least a remnant of him---A SINGLE BLACK GLOVE!!!!
Definitely Out of place! & then I saw the CORD! D minor! I'm still looking for D major cord; I think it's in Hallelujah!

Right Handed?  Beats ALL I've ever seen.........!  Heff.........!!!

Not only Cord--but tied in a Noose! This is not natural Animal Behavior, even in the Deep South! Something happened here! But que???? (For diversity..........que?  que knot?)

Notice the second noose on the left, almost out of frame....--and all of this in such close pri, proxi proxe, REAL NEAR each other.

kNot- Typical!

Threw me for a Loop! What happened here! I needed to go back to my ABC's. (Song reference free).

Gratuitous arranged pic for dramatic effect--cue THRILLER! Oh She's Bad-alright!

I had some Sailors' exam the glove. They said it was not Seamen- probably Special Forces!!
(Blue-glow TV effect pic)- again for dramatic effect-suggested by A-Rod. 
ALEX RODRIQUEZ OK!

I walked off,  (a lesser Investigator would have missed this)--instinctively I turned around--(I heard a car horn)..and looked up...cars are always in the tops of Pine Trees...and saw it!

The Broken Branch overhung the exact spot of the Glove and the Ties that Bind!

NOBODY---err  NO BODY, was Found......YET!!!!!!

OK FOLKS! WHAT IS YOUR THEORY????- Yes--send others by--this may go International!

I HAVEN'T A CLUE AND LARRY IS NOT TALKING! Why--because he is a pole--Duhhhh!

AWARD SATURDAY


I was blessed to receive two awards the other day- and this is the second one from  

This is the Lovely & Loyal award. I pretty much am this with all Blogs I follow- but Alice is exceptionally easy! I MEAN HER BLOG- to follow..see her recent post--I'm babbling!

THANKS MY FRIEND!

THE ANSWERS.


1. Say why you made your blog and if you expected it to be popular at all:
I created my blog to transfer all of my years of Journaling to an easy to keep- (HA) format. I never thought it would be popular, because I never really expected to ever let it be read. As you can tell, after all these years, I value Loyalty over numbers. Thanks everyone!


2. State the exact date you started your blog:
Blogger says a Member since 11/2005! Did they even have Blogging in 2005? I started over once, but my earliest post remaining is :

Tuesday, April 3, 2007


Parallel Universe

The original pic was so old it was deleted-so I stuck this one in here!

If you lived in a parallel Universe, would you have to horizontal park? In another sense when you'd say-- "We'll I'm besides myself on that issue! You are! Vuja De--the feeling you've never been there before, and probably haven't- but since it's parallel----it may have crossed your mind!!!



See- SOME THINGS JUST NEVER CHANGE!!!!!!!  
 

3. Nominate 5 loyal followers! These 5 have been with me since the beginning!


Now that's Loyalty--and: PAIN & PUNISHMENT!!  THANKS GUYS!!!!! 

Should you desire to participate here are the 3 questions. Even if you don't please pick up the award, as I wouldn't be here if it weren't for you!!!

WOW: PUTTING UP AWARDS DAY! THIS IS COOL.


I am the proud recipient of 2 awards this week. I truly never expected many/any awards as I will answer in one of the questions. But Honestly, it is NICE to be recognized. I think we all desire recognition deep down, whether we admit it to ourselves, or not! I truly believe it was Three-well,I know, over Two years before my first and only award, until my recent round of them. And that's because I reached out to a new group of Supertastic People! (I think I made a word!) I'll give myself an award later if no one claims it!

It is in the Spirit of our Community of Blogger's, that these awards are created, and in the same Spirit they are proudly received and displayed. If you are chosen as a recipient- Please NEVER feel that you have to participate: no explanation needed, just know that you were thought of and Loved by us all!
JMc                                                            

THIS FIRST AWARD COMES FROM A  NEW FRIEND, BUT ONE THAT DOESN'T STAY THAT WAY LONG: NEW THAT IS:::::::::::::::::::  SOCCERMOM :::::::::::::::::::::!!!!!!!!!!

If you want a dose of Honesty and absolute hilarity, please head over and say hello. You will not regret it. But be ready for absolute frankness, she calls it like she see it, no BS posts here!!!

How refreshing in this day and age of Masks, Smoke and Mirrors!!!  Thanks Hotmom SOCCERMOM!

For the requirements and rules, click on the  SOCCERMOM   link here or above.



-1.Share 1 thing that no one knows about you.   I was conceived out of wedlock! How's that for Honesty--TMI? Born after marriage--way to go Dad!

-2.What is your biggest regret in life? (hello, everyone has regrets). I answered this a while back but it has to be- Not finishing college when I had a Full Scholarship to do so- and to add- not going to Med School when I had the chance. Regretted both ever since, but they are now part of me and my past!

-3.Have you ever been jealous of someone elses blog page and why? Honestly- No. I have seen a lot of great formats, and some neat phrasing I wish I had coined- but jealous--Nah!

-4.What would you do for a $1,000 dollars? A LOT!!  But it would not involve lying, or intentionally hurting anyone else- or breaking one of my Moral laws.  Not that I'm so perfect....but I do draw a FIRM line in certain areas!

Good question though--because seriously--money isn't that great a motivator for me....but it really did make me pause, think...tick off some things in my mind..................Good Question!!!

-5.What secretly makes you happy? (money? Kids? Porn? Sunshine?)    This may sound weird- but seeing other people really Happy- like winning something, or Families being reunited (like Soldiers) that REALLY gets to me!

-6.If you could go back in time, would you still pick the person you are with right now? And why.   Wow!...................... First impression, No. Quickly, After reflection- Definitely Yes! Simply because the choices I made in the past, made me who I am now! And I'm very happy with ME, as well as Mrs. Me!  Some days---ummmm- not so much!  LOL!!!!

I would have had to list that under regrets right?

-7.What do you like or dislike about my blog page. Initially the only thing that comes to mind, and we are being honest--I guess, is some of the colorful language. But that is you, and it's definitely NOT even close to being enough to put me off your AWESOME HONEST page! And yes, I use those words at times myself!

-8.If you could take a trip anywhere, who would you take with you? Dang Girl---- Trouble time!  I would trip over my living room throw rug and take myself!  No?  Not going to buy it!  Damn! OK.......... 

OK- this is SEMI- serious and I have though about this lately---what if I could take ALL my Blogger Friends and theirs--to Vegas- or Some Exotic--yeah  Cloudia's house @ Comfort Spiral  !!!! check out her pics, and we could spend a week together- and have an Honest to Goodness Real Life awards ceremony!!!!  I don't know- but I think that would be cool. Just like the Oscar's, Woody's....wait- that's not an award, that's a state of being!

But Ya get the idea...wouldn't that be neat!  All paid for and everything! 

OK: since this is getting a little long, I'll post the second award separately: Their are so many Honest people that come to mind: I would like you to go to my links in the sidebar, and pick 7! They aren't in any particular order, just kinda as I added or met them! But rest assured:

EVERYONE THERE IS DESERVING OF THIS AWARD!

Thank you SOCCERMOM-- BIG HUGS and A KISS FROM ME!!!!!  (Don't tell the Sportsman--I'm not up for an Buttwhuppin today!)
