Still Undergoing Changes

Filed under:Blogging for Newbies☄,Misc — posted by JAWjaw on @ 10:47 am

If you are a regular to the site, then you know I’ve made a few changes in the past week. Mainly upgrading to the new WordPress 2.0 version. What seems strange about this whole upgrade of all the blogs on the domain is that each blog seems to have reacted differently to the upgrade. Anyway, I am still working on the changes and hopefully will have them completed soon. Thank you for hanging in there with me during the process.

Watchin’ the Hopefuls

Last night Taki and I had the opportunity to find out what all the fuss over Star Search was. (Our satellite service finally was able to pick-up the show for the first time in its fifth season.) I must admit I do like the show. More than anything else – well other than the unbelievable vocal chords on some of the contestants – the show is extremely entertaining in an amusing way.

Happy Year of the Dog

Filed under:☽2006,Culture — posted by JAWjaw on @ 1:05 pm

Well it’s Sunday, 29 January 2006. That means a new lunar New Year has begun. When I first came to the island in 1973, most of the locals celebrated the occasion. Now, however, the Julian New Year celebrations have taken over. Very few businesses are off for the lunar New year any more. If fact, there isn’t much recoginition of the event at all. But, I can still remember how significant the event was to the local culture and recognize that it is part of their heritage. So here is a Happy New Year of the Dog to everyone.

Really!!!-Pet Peeve #47

Filed under:2006,Rants — posted by JAWjaw on @ 11:06 am

Okay, I know that Americans have the reputation of being ugly. Being in the kind of business Im in and where Im at, it doesnt take much of an imagination to understand how the reputation came about! However, what has happened today goes to prove that sometimes were not being ugly; instead, the other side is being way out ridiculous. Maybe because Ive worked in the hospital business before I expect some degree of common sense. Who knows maybe, just maybe, thats being unreasonable. Last Friday night my father-in-law was sent from his nursing home to the emergency room due to pneumonia. We work on Friday and Saturday nights. So at 1:45 a.m. hubby gets a phone call to come to the hospital to be a co-signer for the admittance paperwork. Okay, so far, not out of reason. This Saturday morning we get a wake-up call at 8:48 to come talk to the hospital about father-in-laws release from the hospital back to the nursing home. HELLO, didnt anyone at the hospital notice last week when hubby came in to the hospital emergency room that he had been drinking and looked exhausted? Does anyone at the hospital bother to get information as to the working hours of the next of kin? This is like the third time in one week that hubby has been called-in for various reasons. Wouldnt it make sense not to stress out the relatives of the patients by documenting the best contact time for non-emergency situations? I feel red tape and bureaucracy of “just doing the job” can be a minus in situations like this.
