  1. I stopped wasting my life 2 years ago or so when I started jumping. . .sorry Dom but life is pretty good now. . .hugs ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
  2. My best friend at the moment is my rolling back pack. . .its the only thing between me and the orthopedist. But truly, my best friends are my camping gear and the sea doo. A trip to the river is in order. . . Man I love the water. ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
  3. Ya all need a Puerto Rican MIL. . . Arroz con dules. . .rice with pork and little beans. . .yum. . . Arroz blanco y negro. . .rice mixed with black beans. . . Ropa Vieja. . .roast beef with garlic (lots of garlic i.e., mojo de ajo). . .I think this is mostly a cuban dish. . . and my favorite, yuca. . . My granny made a mean pot roast. . .but she really didn't cook much. . .mostly just my grandfather. . .he was EXCELLENT. ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
  4. Kel, do a PM for serious answers here. . .lol. It doesn't matter if it feels like lies. The truth is, your heart is in the right place. It doesn't even matter if your ideas are grandiose. . .what does matter is that your grammar and spelling are impeccable and you can support your one page essay with some great examples. The reason they want you to write an essay is because they REALLY want to know if you can write. And nursing is all about patient advocacy. I will be graduating in December and what I have learned is I HAVE to be the advocate for my patient because the docs just write scrips. . .sometimes they don't even think about what they do when they write. . .and it doesn't matter the discipline you choose to go in to. I love Labor and Delivery, Cancer and Cardiology. . .but my ultimate choice is to be the strongest patient advocate I can. That is nursing in a nutshell. . .just be honest with yourself and write the most grammatically correct essay you can. ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
  5. Spent my lunch break in a Code Blue trying to rescusitate an old guy dying of kidney failure. He coded twice during my lunch break and still survived. Of course I work nights so when you were out walking along the beach I was sleeping. Damn I hate it when I am part of the code team. . . ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
  6. Lisamarie, Insist that they have the IV start team do your IV whenever you need one. They usually have a nurse who can use a lidocaine wheal first before actually starting the IV. Also insist that they start them on long bones. That way they don't infiltrate as readily as others (no bendable parts to get in the way). If the nurse cannot palpate a proper vein, do not let her start an IV in you. She should not have to rely on sight. ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
  7. Here is my humble, unbiased opinion. I think DZ #2 should call DZ #1 and offer assistance, maybe even aircraft if available, and in return ask for assistance from DZ #1 in the future on a future boogie. That way it is a win win situation for both DZs. . . There are a limited number of jumpers to go around and in this day and age we need to support each other. This only helps our small business known as skydiving. . . PS. I could be wrong so DZOs can correct me here if they want to but as I understand it DZs generally do not make huge profits from boogies. They are done as promotional events to get people to jump regularly at their DZ. Most of the DZ money comes from tandems and new up and coming jumpers. . . ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
  8. Thanks Gia. . . You know it is a good thing when I am happy, which I am. . .I was just surprised by my son's reaction (i.e.; not wanting to live with dad). ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
  9. Jeff, I gotta stay in the area till I finish nursing school. After that I will probably move back to San Diego. I am being recruited by a hospital down there and I love living in San Diego. . .so close to the DZs. . .lol. ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
  10. Skydive san diego. . .I cannot speak for about jumping because I never have jumped there. In less than an hour's drive you can be at Skydive Elsinore or Skydive Perris. Elsinore has the best view in my opinion and a very warm and friendly atmosphere. Skydive Perris is a very large and very business dropzone. Either one will offer you world class instructors and great amenities. Just depends on your desires. . . ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
  11. NEVER in my lifetime. It just ain't a good thing to fake it. . .but then again, I always take responsibility for my own orgasm. . . ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
  12. Too funny. Bill, I was going to make the drive over 74 to San Diego today. . .But then I looked at the hills behind my house (I live in La Quinta) and decided since I don't have 4 wheel drive anymore I better stay home. . .lol ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
  13. Not really an issue. . .I was expecting it sooner or later but the real issue is now I am in the middle of nursing school and my son does not want to stay with his dad so he wants to move with me when I move. If it was just me, I would move into a shared situation till I graduate, but I will NEVER deny my son (13) his wish. Since Rhondalee got to whine about moving, I thought I would do the same. . . WHINE. . . ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
  14. Woo Hoo. . .I have numbers to post as well. . . :4:0 But it was an AWESOME WEEKEND at the Wigs 2 event. After 8 months away from the sport my body was not willing to make more than 4 jumps. . .I will have to fix that issue very soon. . . ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
  15. Awesome prizes Ro. . .I cannot wait to get there. . .my only wish is that I would have made BOTH of them. . .lol. ________________________________________ Take risks not to escape life… but to prevent life from escaping. ~ A bumper sticker at the DZ FGF #6 Darcy
