Does anyone have a good reminder program to suggest?
Actually there are ethical programmers, and unethical ones. The unethical programmers are hackers. There are even college programs for ethical hackers........it's the same as real life, some people are out for using people and some are out to do the right thing, they are ethical. When an ethical programmer makes a mistake, that is one thing, but it makes it tough when unethical programmers make bad programs on purpose.

I did use the "contact us" for the program, and have they have been working with me on the problems. Some of the problems are surprises for them. I do appreciate that they have been getting back to me.

I have a pretty good one for my phone.

Google calendar works well for reminders. You can have it remind you with email, a popup, and/or an SMS.

Early to bed, we go "Live" tomorrow with our Electronic MARs and I have been elected to be one of the mentors around the facility for any problems that arise. 7 computers, 7 confused nurses...this should be fun!!!

Hi, Kylie. What part time jobs do you do, if you don't mind my asking....? Glad you are having some relaxing recliner time.

I guess I had better get back to work!!!
Chopper, you might consider adding some ear protection - what the heck. When I had a hearing test recently, I learned that riding mower noise, chain saw racket, etc., (never went to rock concerts) might be at least partly to blame for the ringing in my ears and loss of the upper registers of my hearing here in my golden years.

We're up and at 'em early this morning as I have an 8 a.m. appointment with the hand surgeon. He's going to remove the cast, review the incisions, remove all the stitches and put me back in another cast.

I'm really looking forward to being able to wriggle my fingers for the first time in two weeks.

After the doc's appointment I'm going to meet my best friend who just retired from teaching. Today would be her first day of classes so, instead of slaving in a hot classroom all day, we're going out to lunch then to the movies. Yeah...for retirement!!!!!
