Alice said: Ever heard of Clair Patterson? I am reading about him in A Short History of Nearly Everything and its very shocking that he is not in all the history books.Never heard of him... I have got to read this book; still very eager to read something by Bryson.
Gabi said: I think most of us are basically here because our real lives are leaving some need unfed, and finding a kindred soul is very warming to the heart.

It would be very rewarding, I should think. Is this a volunteer program, or something where you could find employment.Part of palliative care, I should think, yes?Tell me how you are getting on in the employment department. It's simply for the volunteer program of a hospice organization. I am strictly a non-medical volunteer; I am not even allowed to help someone in or out of a wheelchair. (It seems there are many rules in the "for profit" hospices.) I only have one patient right now but my director spoke to me about taking on another in the same care center.Not getting anywhere with paid employment. I registered and been admitted to the college but trying to get a scholarship before I enroll in any classes.I'll be able to spend more time here tomorrow. Good night to some of you, and good morning to the rest!Barbara wrote: Dearest heart , I just loved your last post about hols and war and your lovely mum and all.
