Whelp.  I finally decided on a space, have the lease in hand, about to sign it and fax it.  $200/mo (because it's a development center for new businesses), and I can do some renovations.  It's a bit bigger than I need just now, but that just means there's room to expand!  He wanted $250, but when he saw I wasn't willing to commit at that, he offered the $200.  I hadn't even realized it was negotiable!   #accidentalhagglingwin   #rentingspace   #scaredtodeath  

I have some renovation ideas.  I plan on tiling the whole area, painting in water themed colors, and doing a simple design that will feel classy, but uncluttered.  I have a line on a 2% business loan, and plan to get the place looking sweet in no time.  I'm working on my website and such now.  I have a services menu and my schedule is worked out.

I had a decent day.  Sold a group thing of 5 gift certificates, found a place maybe to rent (we'll see) for an affordable price, got a data phone (galaxy) for the business, and sent out the first bill (have a person that comes 2x weekly that likes to just be billed every month).  All in all, a decent day.  Got stuff done even though it doesn't completely feel like it.

Morning for a little while longer.  How are you today?  A couple Imitrex later and I'm beginning to function...sort of.  Sun glasses, dim screen, biofreeze, and anything else I can think of along with short spurts of activity are on I guess today. Rapid pressure changes are migraine triggers for me and we've been having them.  Do you get migraines?  How do you function?

In happier news, I was about 16 or so when SMB came out, and this is awesome...This video was the first smile I had today.  Thanks +Peter Hollens.

Always a great way to start the day out.  Listening to some #peterhollens  :)  Did I ever tell you guys how much he looks like my own brother +Peter Fay?  They could be twins separated at birth nearly.  Any way, I hope your day is happy and your life is rich.

My first day at the spa and I'm finally home.  Even my hair aches.  I'm gonna need to get in MUCH better shape.  I'd been in pretty decent shape but took a bit of time off for studies...BAD DEE.  I paid for that decision...even though it paid off, it sure hurt today!  How was your day?  How are you doing?  I get to have +Pat Jaeger visiting me again in a few days :D

Am I the only one who wonders how it is that no one ever checked?  I mean isn't that kind of standard?  That's almost as mind blowing as the discovery itself.  It also makes me want to make the scientist teams go back and look with fresh eyes at all of the old discoveries to see else what has been missed.

I'm not sure how some folks keep getting deleted out of my circles.  I'm not doing that to folks I know and interact with, even if it is on occasion.  If I don't know the person I might, but otherwise I ignore what I don't like and comment on or plus what I can.  I've noticed my circles (people I've circled), have dropped drastically.  Not sure how it is happening, but oh well.  If you see I'm not following and we interact at least here and there, shout.  I just fixed one person who I swear has been deleted like 5 times, and not by me.

I made the mistake of telling my new business name to someone and they took it and trademarked it, and now want to sell it back for $4K...I can only say Karma, with the capital K hopefully has a date with the person.  Rather than pay, I'll just figure out a new name.  This time, I will tell no one until it's registered and trademarked.  You can tell by the website it's a hasty construct too.  Nothing about massage, no links on the page, the photos there are NOT massage based.  I'm butthurt, but I learned a valuable lesson.  I'll press on and fix it, learn from it, grow from it.

It's been a while since I've said my piece promoting someone, but +Karen Conlin is definitely ONE to promote. #editors   #awesomesauce  

Wow. Today I hit the 100-page mark in The Amigurumi Menagerie from +Ronda Reed. Don't ask me how. I haven't a clue. It just . . . happened.

This is only the first editing pass, remember. I'll be doing at least one more, and a proofing pass with PerfectIt3, before sending it back to her for approval. 

Also, know that "100 pages" is as it appears in the file. I haven't a clue how big this will actually be in its final form. It's double-spaced, for one thing. And since I'm no formatter (never have been!), I really can't say how big it'll be when it's done. 

In any case, I'm close to a third of the way through. Today's work was a lot less continuity and a lot more mechanics. That's how it goes in this first pass. Whatever the work needs, that's what I do. 

Second pass is usually addressing whatever I know to be "problem areas," whether that's usage, dialogue, over- or under-writing, and so on. 

Ronda looooooooves her adjectives. ;-)

Well, the big day of MBLEx taking is tomorrow.  I won't be online until late tomorrow night.  I'll know if I passed or not.  So far my studies today seem positive.  I'm hitting 80's and 90's with every practice exam, but the real deal is likely a bit different...hopefully not too different since this is a test prep program.  I'm officially registered and ready to go though in business as soon as the license makes it to grace my wall!  (see that, claiming victory before the game)

I just discovered a gentleman who MAKES his own wooden flutes and plays them beautifully.  Rudi uses his music to help counsel people with drug addictions.  He is amazing.  He has no CD, but he NEEDS to make one...NOW.  I can't believe how wonderful this guy is.  I really hope he goes for it.  I told him he needs to get a Go fund me account or something, because he is that good.  I've decided his will be the music I open my shop to if I can make it happen at all.  Amazing I tell you.  

Every time he started to play, people literally stopped what they were doing and flocked around.  I have never seen anything like it.  He told me a story about making his flutes too that made me cry.  He learned them from his grandfather, both how to play and how to make.  But his grandfather died just after they made their first one together.  He kept at it, and taught himself the rest andthe man plays... more »

Rudi studied her hands, studied the instruments and how they worked and tried many things until he had a inspirational dream.  He was so excited, he got out of bed and started carving a new flute.  This one made to fit her hands.  It matters where you put the holes for the sound, but he was able to make it in such a way she could still cover the holes, and yet play melodies on her flute again.  He also takes old items from dumps and turns them into playable instruments.  This man is incredible.  I don't know where to start, what to do, but this man needs to be famous.  ___

Whelp, I have a state boards date, the 16th.  A week from now.  The place I'll be working for a few weeks to finish up a specialty training (neuromuscular), says I'm already booked solid for a week and a half.  You can't ask for better news than that.  Keep me in your thoughts as I finish that final yard would you?

I'm looking into scheduling software for my massage business.  I believe I've narrowed things down to MassageBook, and MindBody and Booker.  MassageBook is the one I'm leaning toward most.  

MassageBook: has everything I need, a reasonable swipe fee (2.75%) flat rate), a reasonable membership fee, it is HIPAA compliant, it keeps notes, history forms together, it tracks goods and services, and dumps into my Quicken.  It does booking, gift certificates, allows folks to book themselves (with a certain amount of notice and my approval), the company lists my website and ratings too. It also sends confirmations and reminders via text or email depending on what the client signs up for. It is able to expand, so if I hire employees, or bring in independent contractors, the scheduler will expand easily.  With my ABMP membership, I pay about $20/mo

It is able to expand, so if I hire employees, or bring in independent contractors, the scheduler will expand easily.  With my ABMP membership, I pay about $20/mo

MindBody: has most things MassageBook has, except it does NOT do SOAP notes, coding, and yet it is HIPAA compliant in security, and they state that they are in negotiations to get SOAP notes software.  They have a lower swipe rate (1.75% flat rate).  With additional employees, the scheduler easily expands.  The monthly single person rate is $30, and each employee after is additional.

Booker: has the same as MindBody, but as far as I know it does not have SOAP notes feature available, and no plans in the near future to change that.

Now, why I hesitate.  I have heard that Booker is by far more reliable as far as not ever being offline.  I have heard some folks complain a few times about the other two being less reliable and more data could be lost.  I'm thinking though that that is easily made up by having my own external hard drive in addition to the cloud supported program no?  ___

I wanted to share something.  It's fairly personal, but I felt it was important because it shows change for the better.  One picture is from 2013 when I was having to take chemo and steroids to function at a basic level.  The other is 2015, graduation day, no meds necessary.  I especially wanted +Bill DeWitt to see.  Without his pointing out some dietary possibilities, going to school wouldn't have been possible, let alone the transformation that you see. There is a long road to go yet, but this shows, I believe, that I'm on the right path.

We have electricity still...hook echoes abound all around.  I have internet yet in the basement, but we lost electricity once.  It'll be interesting to see what we end up with after it all passes over.

Well, the sheriff's office has just ordered us to the basement...severe storms, I'll catch you all later.  We've sighted a few funnel clouds...later gators!

I seem to be waxing philosophically today.  I must need a beer.  Then all I will need to do is figure out what is for supper.

When you forgive someone something truly horrible, move past it, and begin to live again must you keep that relationship or pursue one with that person?  When I say forgive, that doesn't necessarily mean in the Christian sense of things, but rather in all senses of things.  What if that person hasn't changed?  Is it on you to make the overtures?  What if you've faced your demons, and slay them daily, weekly, monthly...have you moved on or are you still in the process of it?  

Here's how I view forgiveness if you're interested, and it is a work in progress:

Forgiveness is a mechanism of healing the victim, survivor, or wronged person.  It isn't about healing the person doing the wrong, betrayal, and/or harm.  Forgiveness is a daily choice to put down the hate, fear, and pain...turn away from the need to seek revenge, and not search in vain for ability toprojec... more »

Does this mean there aren't times where a phrase or an innocent action of someone doesn't trigger one into a full out mode of anger?  No.  But what it does mean is that they can then recognize this for what it is, choose to step back, take a breath, and put themselves back on the path.

Years have passed since I've been so grievously wronged, but that doesn't mean I don't still have bad days.  I don't apologize for them, I don't belabor or beat on the subject.  I get back on my horse and rise above the place my abuser left me. That person isn't owed forgiveness, a relationship, comfort, or even a confrontation.  One also doesn't need to spend more time in their presence.  Forgiveness doesn't mean forgetting.  It doesn't mean the world is all rosy and nice now for the abuser, it doesn't absolve them of their crime or consequences.  It simply means I don't spend life living in fear, hate, and the need for retribution.  I become functional; capable of receiving and accepting love, giving it, and enjoying life.___

Whelp, I'm registered for the state boards, my license is applied for.  I should have a test date in a few business days.  So QOTD.  If someone wants you to do something for them, an errand, and they tell you where to go and give you directions but their directions suck and you can't find it how do you handle it?  I spent half an hour looking for a place because the directions I got were general, not specific.  I don't have a smart phone or a map system in the car, so I couldn't look it up that way.  I called the person, and again, they gave crap directions, only this time they were rude and nasty...as if I was stupid.  I'm angry, tired, and kind of hurt.  I had a 1 hour commute to go where I needed to go for this person each way, and they never said thank you when I brought them their part.  Just a snippy comment about it taking so long.  I'm sorely tempted to just tellthem to g... more »

Good morning Googalia.  How are you today?  Well, +Pat Jaeger is already back on the road after having shared graduation day here along with pops.  I miss them already.  Thunder and lightening and hail (pea sized), delayed them just a bit, so it was nice to be able to share a cuppa and some breakfast before they headed out.  Today I'll register for the MBLEx and get an exam date.  My license applications are all filled out and sent in already, so now we're just waiting on a test score.  My tomato tops broke off, I hope the plants live through it.  I had them staked but the hail was too much I guess.  I'll see what can be salvaged later when things chill out outside.  

What's on your agenda today?

Good morning Googalia.  How are you today?  It is supposed to rain and thunder again here today, how about you?  What's on your agenda for this week?  

Today my load is lighter, my burden less burdensome.  I passed my finals handily (some already know from the night crowd) yesterday.  Hubs and the kids celebrated as hard as I did.  I will have a graduation ceremony next week, and state boards ASAP after.  It feels a little surreal to be seeing this kind of light at the end of the tunnel, but really good.  I've been doing well on the practice exams for the boards, so I'm reasonably confident it will go fine, and that just keeping tabs once a day or so on the practice will yield the results needed.

Okay.  This one is for +Pam Adger and anyone else who wants to take a poke.  Fair warning, I don't know the answer, and that is why I'm asking it.  

If your thymus withers as you emerge from puberty, and T cells mature in the thymus, do you stop getting mature T cells or do they still mature in what is left of the thymus, or do they mature somewhere else entirely?  What does this mean for the adult immune system?

So, I had my finals today.  372 questions.  We started at 9, I finished at 2,  and I got a 97% before the bonus questions were added in.  I will get a final grade later, but at the word I got a 97, I didn't care and left to celebrate.  Thanks to all of you guys for putting up with my questions and kept up with how I was doing.  It meant a lot.  Thank you.  Now I just have state boards standing in the way and that is it!

Here's a tricky one...

Which of these controls the secretion of digestive enzymes?  I'll even give you a hint, it's not the most seemingly obvious (at least the one that seemed obvious to me until I looked it up).

So a question for the lawyerly types.  Fish and Game hired a new warden who has been pulling everyone over and giving them a breathalyzer test (on boats and in the marina).  They aren't fishing (no poles even on the boat), there's several adults and licensed people aboard, and he has no reason to believe they've violated any laws other than he believes everyone drinks.  So far he's forced his way on to 11 boats and arrested people even though they stated they weren't driving and there was at least one licensed person sober...he just walks up to folks and gives them the breathalyzer.  He's also been making his way into people's homes and inspecting their freezers to see if they have too many fish or too much game and writing tickets for fines despite the fact he has no proof that that meat isn't older than a year, or wasn't a gift.  He says it's the people'sburd... more »

True or false.  The micturition reflex is a spinal reflex that can be facilitated or inhibited by higher brain centers.

According to both of my rain gauges, we received about 3 inches of rain last night.  Crazy.  I thought at first it had to be a joke when I saw the one closer to the house.  Then I went and emptied the one further out and nope...3 inches.  Holy moly.
