Now that I have your Attention, I have to say that FDNY cutting Ambulance tours in order to save a few bucks is Madness! Ambulances don't Cost money, they Save Money! Transporting the Ill and Injured makes insurance money for the city! and getting folks to where they can be helped gets them on their feet & back to work faster! AAARRRRGGGGHHH!

I'd like to thank all the commenters! It's nice to know there are a few folks listening out there. I've been off for a few days, twittering, cleaning & shopping. Paying the bills may not be Glam. but I've made a real effort to pay off most of my outstanding debt and "clear the deck" for saving for a new car. I think it's do-able, given my habits of working crazy OT and small footprint living. What Motivates You these days?

Blogging. Sometimes a Pleasure; Sometimes a Pain.

I've been Twittering up a storm! it is nice talking (in a SMS way) with some of the folks whose blogs I read but I realize that posting in my own blog also is required. I've been trying to recover from a cold/flu/virus that really laid me out. It has only retracted slowly & I'm monitoring it., but talking about it bores even me! I'd like to ask you a question: Is anybody there? I see that some folks visit but I rarely get comments and I'd like to know for my own head. Please let me know.

When do you know when it's time to let Go...?

Friends, I've known this person for 25 + years. I was there when he got engaged, married and at many other great events that have happened in his life. For the past year or so, I've called him steadily, on Birthdays, Christmas and when one of his parents died, I took some time off, drove up & helped him out by doing some needed work for him. I just don't hear from him & it occurred to me today that unless he starts making some sort of effort to continue our friendship, then it's Over. I wish I could point to something I did/didn't say or do, but I can't. Has this ever happened to you? What (if anything) did you do/not do? I'd like to know.

New Year. What's your position?

I'm not making any Resolutions this year. I've lost interest on making myself promises that I don't fully intend on keeping. I recognise that, for some folks this is a motivational technique that works- just not for me. How do you approach this? I will accomplish the Goals I have set for myself this year & I won't fail. or I will but I will make the effort.
