Ramblings... the Blog!

Greatings friends and Ramblings readers!

There is no time like the present, to begin something. The longer we wait, the longer it takes! A good friend of mine (Mitch) hooked me on this blog thing, so I felt compelled to start one, primarily, because I wanted to establish some dialogue regarding the Ramblings we e-publish. I do receive some good feedback, but sometimes a good discussion -- or exchange of ideas -- is worth more than just reading "my" insights. So, ladies and gentlemen, I present you with... "Ramblings: The Blog."

I intend for this to augment -- not replace -- the e-newsletter, and who knows, maybe this blog will be a colossal flop! But, I had to give it a try, and hopefully it will be a very fun thing -- like Ramblings itself is intended to be.

What are the rules?

Yes... there are rules. The posts here should be pertinent, and as upbeat as possible. No bashing, no cussing, and no serious complaining -- except that you might be looking for positive answers to fix a problem, in which case... we're all e-ears. And, we have some pretty savvy minds (potentially) that will be enjoying this from time to time, so... I'm expecting a bountiful interchange of thoughts and philosophies. Feel free to disagree -- or agree -- with the things I say in Ramblings, or any other post, for that matter, as long as you do it in a courteous manner. I promise to do the same.

You can comment here in a number of ways, including anonymously, but... well what fun is THAT, if you don't want to own up to your own opinion, right? Right. So we don't expect much of that.

As I learn more about this beast, we'll make it the beauty it's destined to be. It will be GREAT hearing from you and making Ramblings an interactive communication tool.

That's if for now! Have an awesome day and LET THE RAMBLINGS BEGIN!

Talk to you soon.

Hi Kelvin-
So nice to get "Ramblings" again! What you wrote about really hits home for me. I am, as you know, in nursing school, and it is very challenging. I always say "IF I graduate, I will be so proud of myself". I have to change that to WHEN I graduate! A very longtime friend of mine was very cynical about the whole thing at 1st. "Why do you want to do THAT?....Are you SURE you wanna do all that nasty stuff that goes along w/nursing?"...and on and on...she really brought me down & made my 2nd guess myself. But I have risen above it, and your upbeat Ramblings always put a smile on my face. And I hope you're there in 5/07 when I graduate!!! :o)
