Winning money on the lottery 2 nights running is a great feeling. I hope it doesn't change me

Don't let it change you. :D

Just curious. Does anyone missing having this section of the forum being named "The Alfredo?"

 

Good ol' days. :D

Unsung indeed, but duty is duty. The pay is not the best in the world (pretty bad when a football player gets more than a life saver)  The reward of seeing someone getting back to full health again or not having to make "that phone call" is the best job satisfaction. A letter or flowers off someone who appreciates what you have done is touching and often brings a tear to the eye. I have never asked for (or wanted) praise, but it is nice to be acknowledged and for that I thank you. :)

I saw on tv last week that 93% of Australian hospital staff were abused in some form during the last year. This ranges from verbal abuse to physical assault. This is shameful. No wonder sometimes we are on the short end of the stick. How hard is it to say thank you for the wonderful care they gave you or a loved one? If you get a grumpy one, think about the 93% - who spoke to this person last?

 

I owe hospitals & nurses my life & the lives of both my children, Yes, the nurses & other staff did their duty but most went way beyond duty. 

 

Welshy, see, we had faith in you that you would not be changed by the win :P I'm sure the paed ward will appreciate it very much. Might have to send you some bubble wrap for BabyBlue :D

I have to say, it is better here than in the UK. I still get verbal abuse, (I suppose that is like every country) but I do get less here in Sweden, so far I have not had a punch thrown at me here yet (fingers crossed I don't) In the UK it was a regular occurrence not just isolated to the Friday / Saturday night crowd that roll into A&E or visit people on the ward, it was a daily threat. I have had more physical and verbal abuse than I can count up to. Certainly not part of the job description, but as mentioned previously, the rewards out number the negatives. I enjoy my work. Helping to save lives and being an understanding shoulder to cry on when needed is always the best bonus.
As we all know, an OBE or MBE is reserved for a celebrity, a footballer or a chef.

 

Personally I would give awards out at the end of each year to life boat rescuers / Air ambulance / people who give their time for free to save people and who make a difference. Not someone who cooks on TV or Sings at an opening ceremony attended by the head of state.

It really is a shame just how bad medical staff are treated over there...and the US is not far behind, I fear. I have the utmost respect for our nurses. They work their backsides off to get through school and clinicals, then work long/late hours to ensure the health of their patients. To turn around and get abuse like that is just sad...and for the people that do it, if they were on fire, I wouldn't so much as spit on 'em. My sister just started school to be a nurse. I don't want her to have to face that kind of c_r_a_p.

 

I had to look up what a OBE/MBE was...Celebrities and footballers get that? Seriously? Just for being good at something insignificant? There are so many people that would be much more deserving of such an award...Same goes for stuff like the Oscars and Emmys and what-not here in the states...

I found this full house on the forum today (three of a kind and a pair).

Anyone wanna raise me?  You'll need a higher full house or one of these combinations...

Ahem.

FIREBUG ON MOBILE DEVICES

Works on Android, too. I can't tell you how happy this makes me and how much I wish I had discovered this a year ago.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center installed.

 

It stuck for long at 84% on two occasions, applying computer settings and finalizing stuff.... it felt like an eternity waiting for 85%... :x

I can't get it to install. I might give it another go tomorrow.
