prayers are needed
i just got a call from my best friend's mother-in-law telling me that she is in ICU. apparently yesterday morning mel's husband went to wake her up and found her nearly comatose. her blood oxygen level was below 80% (it should be above 90%), she is complaining of pains in her arms and neck and has swelling of her brain. she is scheduled to be transported to another hospital today for an angiogram because the doctors think she may have suffered a heart attack. they have no idea what is causing the brain swelling.

please keep her in your prayers.

*update: went to the hospital and saw mel, her color is good but she has no feeling in two fingers on each hand. the angio will be done on tuesday.

A new favorite
i try to eat a small bowl of cereal almost every morning for breakfast and i alternate between two or three different flavors of Cheerios because i like the taste, they are low in sugar and just plain old "generally healthy". today i bought a box of this and was so curious to try it out that i opened the box and just grabbed a bite. this stuff is DELICIOUS! i just hope that i will like it when i put milk on it tomorrow morning. if not it will make a great snack during the afternoon.

in keeping his word...
in keeping his word about an open government, the president's and vice-president's tax returns have been made public and in print. you can see them in all their glory at
i continue to be amazed at the difference in leadership now that there is a caring human in charge.

with the economy the way it has been business has been horrible. but it may start turning around. i just got a call from a client of mine who is a nurse. she is starting up a series of health fairs and has asked me to be the insurance vendor. i am meeting with her on monday to work out all of the particulars, the first fair is a week from tomorrow. i will have three hours (9-12) to talk to people about life, health, disability and long term care insurance. she has already committed to at least every other month for me. I am hoping that this will be the start of something really big and prosperous. keep your fingers crossed!

every three years i have to renew my license to sell insurance and it is that time again. in order to renew, the state of nevada makes me complete 30 hours of continuing education. i had more than the 30 required hours and now they have added two more requirements...3 hours of ethics and 4 hours of flood insurance training. so last week i ordered the classes on line and read through the ethics course, i took the exam today and passed. next thursday i will be taking the flood exam and hopefully will pass it also.
