Yesterday, my daughter Mari Lynn came to our home for Easter dinner. She was pretty tired, after putting in a busy week at a children's hospital, in Detroit. Mari Lynn loves her line of work, but after while, those long, twelve hour shifts tend to wear on a person's body. Mari Lynn doesn't usually complain about her job, but when she got here, my daughter was just plain worn out. It was good therapy, to drive up north and spend a couple well earned days off, with Taylor and the grand-kids. I'm very proud of this little lady!

No, the site owner is a wonderful man, by the name of 'Alex.' He's good to all our newbies and he's willing to help them get started, in the right direction. I've only been here for seven months, but they've taught me a lot about this site. It's a wonderful place to settle in and meet some nice people. You will do just fine, it took me about a months to get going, with a nice following. Also, select members you'd like to follow, that helps, too.

@kobesbuddy I used to do 12 and even 14+ hour shifts back when I was in college working on the boardwalk. . . then we'd go to the bar for drinks for a couple of hours, get up and do it all over again the next day. Those were the days. I'd be out of commission for awhile if I attempted a 12 or 14 hour shift now.
It's sad but true. Working 12 hr shifts is bad enough when you're a security guard, but hospital staff should only work a minimum of 8 hrs per day. They require their minds to be well rested. Fatal mistakes can be made when you are sleep deprived. :-(
